Weekly Hashkafa Shiur #117 – A Deeper Understanding of the Story of Yaakov and Esav By Rabbi Mendel Kessin

Rabbi Mendel Kessin – This class discusses the amazing story of Yaakov Avinu and Esav from a practical and spiritual perspective – about how Esav was actually an Av (Forefather) at the beginning and had great power to affect creation. However, by selling his birthright and Yaakov Avinu receiving Esav’s first born blessing from Yitzchak Avinu – his “Av(ness)” duties were passed on to Yaakov Avinu. This dramatically affected Yaakov Avinu’s life as from that point on he took on two (Av) roles – the original one he had of learning Torah in tents (bringing shefa to the World) and the one he inherited from Esav – to go out into the tuma (the harsh evil World) and stay spiritually intact. This is symbolized the Angels that go up and down the ladder. Fascinating class from Rabbi Kessin – highly recommended.

Weekly Hashkafa Shiur #112 | What Brings the Mashiach? By Rabbi Mendel Kessin

Rabbi Mendel Kessin – Shares and explains how learning Mishna (the oral law written down by Rabbi Yehuda Hanasi) can serve several purposes at once. According to Midrash Raba it can bring Geula (redemption). It can give a strong learning foundation for young boys and newly religious alike. And, it can help educate us about the Torah laws itself. Rabbi Kessin also makes some good points about the difficulties many have with learning Gemorah without the basic learning foundation (Mishna) first.

Weekly Hashkafa Shiur #101 | Our Loss & the Goyim’s Gain by Rabbi Mendel Kessin

Rabbi Mendel Kessin – Presents a fascinating discussion on Torah vs. Science and Jews vs. Non-Jews and the dichotomy of the spiritual light from above and where it lands between those two examples. This depends on whether the Jews are “worthy” of that light and if not it migrates to the “other” side. This has been going on during almost all of Jewish history and the clarity of the explanation as to why is really interesting.
