Prof. Yoel Elitzur Parashat Vayishlach: The Parcel of Land in Shechem The second place in the Land of Israel, following the cave of Machpelah, to have been purchased by one of our patriarchs, and the first place where Jacob built an altar and invoked the name of God, is the “parcel of land” in Shechem.

Rav Shimon Klein Parshat Vayishlach: The Weight of the Past What role does the past play in a person’s life? What weight is given to the future? Parshat HaShavua - MSWord Format
Dr. Brachi Elitzur "For you have striven with God and with men" – Yaakov's Dual Destiny In our shiur on Parashat Vayetze, the point of departure of our discussion was the level of detail in Yaakov's family stories and the seeming absence of any activity on the national level, in comparison to the stories of Avraham and Yitzchak.

Rav Shimon Klein Parashat Vayishlach - The Weight of the Past What role does the past play in a person’s life? What weight is given to the future? In the simplest sense, the answer would seem to point to a self-fulfilling prophecy. A society that occupies itself with the past will likely find the source of its vitality in the delving into and longing for that which already was. A future-oriented society will make the future its focus, offering both vision and renewal. An interesting observation as to the relationship between past and future is revealed in the record of one of the branches of Esav’s family, which we will examine in this shiur.

Rav Yair Kahn Parashat Vayishlach: Coming Home In the story of Jacob and his return flight from Haran, we find many repetitions. Thus, for example, leaving Haran is described twice, with changes of the city's name from Luz to Bet El and from Yaakov to Yisrael. These and other changes can be interpreted on the local level, but we will try to explain them in light of the two reasons for Jacob's departure - and therefore return – his flight from Esau, on the one hand, and the search for an appropriate wife, on the other.

Rav Yoel Bin-Nun War and Morality: Yisrael in the Land In advance of encountering his brother Esav, Yaakov "prepares for war." In this shiur, we will discuss what this entails according to the commentaries, as well as the implications of this story in modern times. What can we learn from Yaakov's attitude to warfare as he returns to Eretz Canaan? Parshat HaShavua - The Weekly Torah Reading
Rav Gad Eldad “I Am God Almighty” – How God Introduces Himself In this shiur, we will study the various "introduction ceremonies" that God conducts with the patriarchs. These ceremonies emphasize the strong connection that God sought to create with them and the covenant that He made with them in giving them the land. Parshat HaShavua - The Weekly Torah Reading
