Moav & Midyan
Among the nations that Benei Yisrael encountered as they were about to enter Eretz Yisrael in the 40th year in the desert, Moav and Midyan keep coming up. Sometimes they are featured prominently, other times they’re actions are played out behind the scenes. In this course join Rabbi Chaim Brovender as he explores the questions of who are the nations of Moav and Midyan and why they stood out in the history of Am Yisrael.
Rabbi Chaim Brovender is the Rosh Yeshiva of WebYeshiva and President of ATID - The Academy for Torah Initiatives and Directions in Jewish Education, in Jerusalem. He was the founding Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivat Hamivtar and Michlelet Bruria (today, Midreshet Lindenbaum) where he pioneered the teaching of Gemara to students for whom the Talmud had been a closed book.
