Course Description

This class will study Sefer Shmuel (Samuel), with relevant commentaries. Students will learn to think about the text themselves, and what the narratives mean, as well as hone their skills in exegesis. Where relevant we will take a more b'iyun (in depth) approach to some of the subjects, looking at a broader range of sources including Talmud, Rishonim and Achronim.

Sefer Shmuel 15th perek

We started the 15th perek of Shmuel. We saw Shmuel's clear warning to Shaul and got up to Shaul sparing Amalek. Next week we will examine his motives and try to understand what happened.

We covered through pasuk 21. We gained much greater insight into the behavior of Shaul and why he was punished, and perhaps we gained some insight into Shmuel as well.
