“Am Levadad Yishkon #20 – Messianic Era Part Three: Ramban’s Opinon” by Rav Asher Haber

This week, we look at the opinion of the Ramban, who understands the Messianic Era as a time in which human nature and the world itself will become fundamentally altered, to the point of being unrecognizable.  This view is in direct contrast to the more commonly known opinion of the Rambam, which we will discuss next week.

Moshe's confrontation with Aharon's remaining sons over their neglecting to eat the sin offering following the deaths of Nadav and Avihu can be difficult to understand.

However, a closer reading of the text shows that the narratives that follow, involving the sin of Baal Peor, the act of Pinhas and the war of Midian, are an integral part of the story.  These events form a tragic and triumphant conclusion to the showdown with Balak and Bilaam, and give us additional insight into the eternally unique qualities of the Am Levadad Yishkon.

Rav Soloveitchik on the Mitzva of Shofar

This 4 part series is based on a shiur delivered by the Rav zt"l in Boston in 1968 on the mitzva of tekiat shofar. The original two hour shiur has been divided into four parts. The Rav covers the mitzva of shofar and its relationship to the prayers of Rosh HaShana.

This is part one.

In a few short parts, the sound quality of the original recording deteriorates somewhat, but the overall quality is good.

KMTT is returning, after our annual summer vacation, with a new lineup for Elul. Aside from the continuing parashat hashavua of Rav Chanoch Waxman, we will be broadcasting a shiur on shofar delivered 40 years ago by HaRav Soloveitchik zt"l (in four parts), and a series on ahavat HaShem by Rav Ezra Bick.

This is a good time to tell all your friends about KMTT, so they can start enjoying the daily Torah Podcast now, before Rosh HaShana.
