Teacher Title Abstract
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yehuda Amital The Blessings to Yaakov and Esav
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yaakov Medan Yitzchak – the Heavenly Soul Yitzchak's path is different from that of Avraham and Yaakov. While the relationship between Avraham and Sarah, and between Yaakov and his wives, occupies a relatively modest place in the chronicle of their lives, when it comes to Yitzchak, Rivka is the active, entrepreneurial force in his home, and most of the recorded events of his life involve her.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Mosheh Lichtenstein A Portrait of Yitzchak The fact that Yitzchak grew up in the house of a tzaddik affected many aspects of his life, including his divine service and his attitude to his children.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Baruch Gigi Yaakov, Yitzchak, and the Purchase of the Birthright Yitzchak and Yaakov both were concerned about continuing the legacy of their fathers, and this accounts for the succession struggles they experienced.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yaakov Medan Yitzchak’s Meal In the Torah's account of the blessing that Yitzchak wished to give to Esav but was, through deception, given to Yaakov, there is an inordinate emphasis on food. What is the explanation for this, and what does it reflect about Yitzchak's character?
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yaakov Medan Love Instead of Jealousy The relationship between David and Yonatan -- a love based on selflessness -- is the key to understanding the conflict between Esav and Yaakov.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yaakov Medan The Path of Yitzchak The Torah's account of the life of Yitzchak seems to essentially repeat the themes of Avraham's life, and YItzchak seems to be attributed lesser significance than the other avot. What is the role of Yitzchak in the family story?
שיעורי טקסט Harav Baruch Gigi “You Will Give Truth to Yaakov” Yaakov is referred to as the man of truth. But given the many events in his life that appear to entail the opposite of truth, what does this mean?

שיעורי טקסט Harav Yehuda Amital The Stones That Joined Together
שיעורי טקסט Harav Mosheh Lichtenstein "He is Faithful with Holy Ones" The most interesting aspect of the haftara for Parashat Vayetze, taken from the end of the book of Hoshea, is the very fact that it relates to the period of the patriarchs. Very rarely do the prophets relate to the biblical stories of Bereishit.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yehuda Amital Yaakov and the Stones "And Yaakov went out from Beer Sheva… and he slept over there… and he took from the stones of that place and placed them at his head…" (Bereishit 28:10-11)
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yehuda Amital Vayetze: “And Yaakov Loved Rachel” In the Torah's description of the meeting between Yaakov and Rachel, we find an emphasis on the powerful human emotions that Yaakov experienced.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yaakov Medan Yaakov’s Love for Rachel Why did Yaakov love Rachel? And what were the complex dynamics of the relationship between Rachel and Leah after they married?
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yaakov Medan Lavan’s Deceit Why did Yaakov have to work so long for his wives? How was he fooled by the switching of the sisters? And why did he not return home after the fourteen years were over? These questions are illuminated by an examination of the parallel between Lavan and Pharaoh.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yaakov Medan The Theft of the Terafim and the Covenant at Mitzpa-Gal’ed Why did Rachel steal her father's terafim? The commentaries have offered a number of explanations. In this shiur, we will suggest an additional possibility, and we will also consider Yaakov's response to Lavan's accusation. We will further probe the covenant made at Mitzpeh Gil'ad, which appears to have been violated years later by Bnei Yisrael.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yaakov Medan Did Yaakov Deal Justly With Lavan? What caused Yaakov to leave Lavan? Were his actions justified?
