In this Torah shiur (class) on Sefer Yirmiyahu, Rabbi Avishai David
compares the content and structure of perek 21, which is addressed to
the king, and perek 22, which is addressed to the king and the nation
at the Beit Hamikdash. Rabbi David quotes the works of Rabbi Joseph
Ber Soloveitchik and Rabbi Aharon Soloveitchik as he defines the
nuances within justice, as demonstrated with the many terms for justice
which are mentioned in the Torah. This Torah class is available online in streaming video and for download in mp3 and ipod video formats.
Is loving one's fellow Jew an obligation from the Torah? Rabbi David explores this topic, tracing the mitzvot relating to Ahavat Yisrael starting from the pesukim in the Torah. He then discusses the comments of the Rambam and the Ksav V'Hakaballah on the application of these mitzvot, including examples of the levels of Ahavat Yisrael that were reached by great Jews like R' Aryeh Levine.
