Parashat HaShavua Sites and Hagim

Commentaries on the weekly Torah portion across 52 Shabbatot of the year and Holiday (Hagim) drashot.

PowerPoints on Akedat Yitzchak (Chanted on the Second Day of Rosh Hashanah), and Sefer Yonah (Chanted in Minchah on Yom Kippur)

The Binding of Isaac (Gen. 22) is chanted on the Second Day of Rosh Hashanah and as the PowerPoint indicates in the comments of Rav Kook evokes the zekut Avot (merit of the ancestors) which we hope is particularly remembered on Yamim Noraim. Maftir Yona is chanted in the minchah service on Yom Kippur.  These two PowerPoints on: (1) The binding of Isaac (Akedat Yitchak) and (2) Sefer Yonah in the context of biblical archeological remains of Ninevah along with the commentaries of various Rabbinic luminaries including  the GRA etc. were presented at the LCW, as per request of LCW professors for their courses that were covering these topics in class.
