Intro to Sefer Devarim
The two sections of the main speech

HaMakom Asher Yivchar Hashem
When we speak of Jerusalem, we relate to two aspects: both its geographic location and its function as the national center of the Jewish Nation. Surprisingly enough, Chumash never mentions its specific name nor its precise location. However, its concept - the national center of the Jewish Nation - unfolds as a fundamental theme in Sefer Devarim. This week, in our analysis of the chukim and mishpatim section of the main speech of Sefer Devarim, we discuss this theme. Online:

Bad Influences [a mini-shiur]
Bad influences? Surely we should stay away from them, but how do we identify them? In Parshat Reay, we find an example of how the Torah deals with this problem, as Bnei Yisrael prepare to enter the land. Offline/Download:

Is Sefer Devarim Really a Review of Chumash?
What is Sefer Devarim?
Most everyone would answer that it is a review or repeat of Chumash, just as its 'second name' - "Mishneh Torah" - implies.
Is this really so?
As we will see in this week's shiur, the answer to this question is quite shocking, quite simple, and very fundamental towards understanding all of Chumash.

The First Parshiot of Kriyat Shma
The first two parshiot of "kriyat shma" surround us each and every day of our lives. Not only do we recite them at least twice daily, but they are also written on every doorpost (i.e. on every "mezuzah"), and in the boxes of our "tfilin." What makes them so special? This week's shiur, which analyzes the overall structure of the main speech of Sefer Devarim, we help us better appreciate why specifically these two parshiot are so important. Online:
