    Crises & Kings explores the Book of Samuel, which recounts a tumultuous period in Biblical history. The Israelites have settled in their new land but tribal rivalries weaken them against the ascendant Philistines. Saul, the first king, brings hope but his reign is marred by missteps, leading to his downfall.



    David, arguably the most famous character in Jewish tradition, succeeds Saul and strategically lays the foundations for an empire. His exploits, including some spectacular moral failures, are unrivaled.



    The dramatic narrative of Sefer Shmuel introduces us to themes still relevant today: divine destiny vs. human initiative, faith vs. misplaced religious devotion, and good leadership vs. corrosive and self-serving rule.



    This series is a production of Pardes North America in partnership with The Koren Podcast Network and is lovingly sponsored by the Neustein family in memory of Rabbi Dr. Joseph Neustein, on the occasion of his 4th yahrzeit.

    Parashat Ha'azinu 5782 - The Eternity of the Jewish People

    Moshe's words in this week's parasha contain both a sacred history of the Jewish people as well as a vision of their future, until the end of time. We will consider Nachmanides' interpretation of the matter, as he explores the special mission that God has given His people.

    Yom Kippur 5782 - Who is the Hero of the Jonah Story?

    In this podcast, Aviva Lauer explores the Book of Jonah, read on the afternoon of Yom Kippur, in an effort to understand what message we are meant to take from it on this special day. Naming Jonah (under the influence of his midrashic mentor, Elijah the Prophet) the antihero of the story, as opposed to its hero, Lauer searches for the real hero of the story - one that fits the themes of the Day of Repentance.

    Vayelech 5782/Shabbat Shuva - Who Would you Invite to Dinner?

    This class imagines an imaginary dinner between R. Zera (4th century CE) and Moses. How are these two figures similar? How are they different? And what can their differences teach us about authority and repentance? Truly, a tale of two leaders. (Devarim 31:1-2 / Shemot 4:10 / Devarim 31:27)
