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 overview

We started the new zman with a review of sefer Shmuel and contextualized it historically. If you were new to this shiur it was (hopefully!) an excellent introduction. If you have been with us for a while, hopefully the helped.

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.

Shiur cancelled!!
CANCELED

Dear Students

 

I am so very sorry, but I have to cancel shiur this evening. I hate cancelling at the best of times, but I especially hate to do so on such short notice. I am afraid I occasionally get migrains, and I have one this evening that is not responding to medicin.

Please God we will continue next week and there WILL be a make up class. We can discuss when we want the make-up to happen as a shiur next Tuesday.

Once again, I know how much effort you all make to attend, so I am very sorry I have to cancel

Sefer Shmuel

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.

We moved on in the 17th perek. We talked about what kind of king David will be and what kind of king Shaul is, and the differences. David finally makes it to the battle and will soon be challenging Goliat to battle.
