CHAS301 Chassidut on the Parsha Professor Hava Preil  Rabbi Hershel Reichman

This course is centered on the weekly Torah portion. Within each Torah portion, one or two topics are analyzed and discussed based on the book of Chassidic discourses, Shem MiShmuel, authored between the years 1910-1926, by Rabbi  Shmuel Bornsztain, the second Sochatchover  Rebbe, who wrote his book between the years 1910-1926.  
This course attempts to deepen the student’s understanding of some of the themes presented in the books of Genesis and Exodus. This goal is achieved by discussing the narratives presented in this book, and synthesizing them with the comments of the Midrash, the Talmud, and Hasidic thought.  The concepts presented are then connected to contemporary life, and the students are able to apply the lessons of the Bible with modern day issues and challenges.
