Before Moshiach Arrives: Milchemet Gog Magog

Our prophets describe a war between Gog and Magog that will occur  before Moshiach arrives. But who are Gog and Magog? What is the purpose of this war and how will it  affect us? Where will the battle take place?  What will trigger it and what will be the results? (Rabbi Yinon Kalazan)

The Great Eagle - The Life and Thought of Maimonides

The  Luminous Leadership of the Jewish People During the Darkness of the First Exile

With the destruction of the first Temple, the Jewish People suddenly found themselves in uncharted waters. No Land of Israel, no Jerusalem, no Temple, no Davidic Kingdom... and wondering if they can survive and  return.  Do they even  have a national future? Hashem sent them leaders who would teach them how to survive as Jews in exile, lead them back to the Land of Israel and build a new Temple. Much of what happened in that exile is also the reality of our time, and we are assured  that our current exile will have an even more  magnificent conclusion. (Rabbi Eliyahu Bergstein)

Women in Tanach/  Shir shel Yom

We'll conclude our series on  the unique qualities of some famous women in Tanach,

and what they  teach us  as women and as part of the Jewish Nation.

 The classes will focus on lesser known aspects of famous women, as well as women

who are important role models for us even though we know less about them:

  -Serach bas Asher: Illustrating the power of women to partner with Hashem

in ensuring the continuity of the Jewish nation

-The Unique Quality of Women's Prayer as shown by

the prayers of Leah, Chana, Devora, and others.

We will then begin a new series on Shir shel Yom (Song of the Day).

Every day another chapter of Psalms was sung by the Levi'im in the Bais Mikdash. 

We say these chapters today after the morning prayers.

Each represents the special potential of the day, and acts as another rung

in the spiritual  ladder we climb until we finally reach the sacred peak of Shabbos.
