Welcome to Monday Torah, an engaging class by Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Jacobson, one of the most sought after teachers in the Jewish world today and spiritual leader of Congregation Bais Shmuel in Crown Heights.
The weekly video webcast is aired on TheYeshiva.net and COLlive.com each Monday evening at 8:30 PM EST.
The class delves into the Rebbe’s explanation to the story of Yakkov crossing his hands while blessing Menashe and Ephraim, explaining two different approaches in dealing with modernity: the approach of Menasheh, nostalgia, vs. the approach of Ephraim: Transformation.
The fascinating class also explores the different style of the Sichos of the Rebbe Rayatz and the Rebbe. Where the former are filled with the stories of the “old world,” while the Rebbe’s talks are almost completely devoid of it.
