Shiur #1: From Avraham to Yitzchak to Yaakov: Which Son is Chosen?
Three mini-shiurim [mostly re: parshanut"]
From Avraham to Yitzchak to Yaakov: Which Son is Chosen?
"Yichus" [family lineage] has always been an important
consideration when searching for the proper wife, but why is
Avraham so insistent that his 'chosen' son marry specifically a
descendant of his brother Nachor?
To answer this question, this week's shiur analyzes the
entire unit of 'parshiot' that tell the story of Avraham Avinu,
showing how [and why] they unfold under a more general discussion
of "toldot Terach" [the offspring of Terach]. Despite its
'technical' nature of this analysis, we'll try to find some
thematic significance as well.
