“Listen to me; I will give you counsel, and may God be with you”
by Rav Gad Eldad
The account of Yitro's advice to Moshe appears to conclude with a "happy ending," indicating that Moshe successfully implemented his father-in-law's idea. However, study of the account of the appointment of the judges in Sefer Bamidbar indicates that Yitro's idea may not have been so successful after all. In this shiur, we will consider why that might be.
"You Shall Not Covet"
by Harav Yaakov Medan
This sicha explores multiple dimensions of the prohibition against coveting: its place in the Ten Commandments, its psychological and halakhic meaning, its broader ramifications, and its relation to other mitzvot concerning one's neighbor.

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.
