Tanakh

R. Yonatan Grossman 86x86

“These are the Words that Moshe Spoke”  What did Moshe wish to receive at the beginning of his grand oration?

by Prof. Yonatan Grossman

In this shiur, we discuss the basic structure of the entire book of Devarim. In our parasha, Moshe delivers his first oration, which is an introduction to the central oration that will begin in chapter 5 and continue the length of most of the book. It is clear from the structure of the book as a whole that the purpose of Moshe's orations is to prepare the people for the new covenant at the conclusion of the book. The essence of his first oration is twofold: On the one hand, it is intended to explain why the covenant is made not in Eretz Yisrael, but rather in the plains of Moav; on the other hand, it presents the people with Moshe's perspective on the people's conduct up until this stage.

"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."
