R. Yonatan Grossman 86x86The Priests The Levites

by Prof. Yonatan Grossman

Among the social classes that are discussed in Parashat Shoftim, we find "the priests the Levites." In this shiur, we will examine who this phrase is referring to, noting a number of differences between how the Levites are described in Sefer Devarim as opposed to the rest of the Torah.

Gigi made three outstanding presentations, including a fascinating shiur on the topic of Sephardic rabbinic approaches to Zionism. Dedicated today in honor of our 232 olim chadashim!

joining the benches of the beit midrash. Enjoy these photos!

The Special Alumni Study Day during Asseret Yemei Teshuva, 
will be held on Monday, 8 Tishrei (17.9) from 9:00 to 19:15.

Schedule and registration will be posted next week.

We were pleased to hear that the Jerusalem Municipality's Names Committee, with the encouragement of Mr. Dov Kalmanovich (Machzor Zayin), the deputy mayor of Jerusalem, decided to name a street after Moreinu Harav Yehuda Amital zt"l in a new neighborhood on the slopes of Givat Masua. The rabbi, who so loved the city, merited a street named after him; yishar koach to his student, who was privileged to promote this worthy and moving commemoration.

"In his absence, as in his lifetime, we continue to ask ourselves what he would think about the way we contend with our everyday challenges and what he would say about our struggle against torpor and faithlessness." 
                                                       - Rabbi Shalom Carmy

What opportunities are there for special-needs high school graduates who also want to have a year in Israel - and a fulfilling life after that?

Read about the remarkable Ohr Torah Stone’s Elaine & Norm Brodsky Darkaynu Program, whose male division takes place in Yeshivat Har Etzion.
 
 
"The perspective you get from them is unique," says alumnus Dovi. "In fact,  it puts in perspective why you are learning at all."

What's Happening in Israel


Visits to Har Etzion by the most elite instructional institution in the IDF - The IDF Command and Staff College ("Pum") - seem to have become a tradition. Brigadier General Commander Noam Tivon explains why: "I consider Rav Medan a leader, an ideological leader, but also a leader who seeks ways to build bridges, and therefore it is so important to hear him."
