Shiur #1: Why Yitzchak blesses Esav
Abstract of above shiur [HTML][Text] [Word]
Shiur #2: Be'erot and the Bet HaMikdash
Yitzchak's Blessing of Yaakov and Esav -
Avot and the Mitzvot -
What mitzvot did the Avot keep? Rashi, commenting on a pasuk in this week's Parsha, claims that the Avot kept the entire Torah - even the Oral Law and later Rabbinic prohibitions. Many other commentators disagree.
In Part One, we discuss this pasuk by delving into a little 'parshanut appreciation.' In Part Two, we'll use the Seforno's pirush on this pasuk as a springboard for a discussion on 'wells,' "maase Avot siman la'banim," and a Biblical theme that will serve as a basis for our understanding of the sequence of events in Nviim Rishonim.
