5. Receiving of the Torah on Shavuos

A description of this class as found on Aish Audio:

The famous question asked is: why should we celebrate the receiving of the Torah if only 40 days after getting it, we worshipped the Golden Calf? In the process of eliminating this and other reasons why we didn't deserve the Torah, Rabbi Berkovits zeroes in on the prime reason God gave us this ultimate gift at that time. If you have time for only one class before Shavuos, this is your best bet.

6. Overview of the Five Books

A description of this class as found on Aish Audio:

Rabbi Geller has found a new spin for understanding the Torah. He doesn't call it a storybook or a history book, but rather a collection of 'elements' that are of 'prime interest' to God. In this single session whirlwind journey through all 5 Books of Moses hear how many different ways and levels the written Torah can be perceived. He's funny, engaging and answers key questions that many people always wonder about.

A description of this class as found on Aish Audio:

The story of Ruth illustrates the high spiritual payoff of 'giving.' Hear the valuable rewards for welcoming guests, visiting the sick, planning a wedding and comforting mourners. Also discussed is how to cope with 'chesed burnout.'

  • lecture 6...

    I wish I could discuss this with that rabbi, but since I can't I'll comment it.

    He mentioned that there was no other animals than a pig, which has split hooves. This is not so correct. There are at least two other kind of animals that have. The peccary has split hooves and do not live in the area where the torah was given.

    He also mentioned the Ipuwer papyrus which according to him spoke about the 10 plagues. This papyrus only speaks about the 10 plagues if you twist and distort it in a dramatical way. You can actaullly go ahead and read it here: http://nefertiti.iwebland.com/texts/ipuwer.htm
    I think its a misunderstanding of it.

    Else I think the rabbi was funny to listen to, and woke me up from my sleep though it was 1.56 am... a very intersting way he has.
