Throughout Jewish history the Jews have drawn on immense amounts on courage in order to overcome all types of obstacles. One such instance is in the story of Chanukah, which Rabbi Hanoch Teller delves into in the "Jewish Calendar" class.
In this Torah shiur (class) on Parshat Chukat, Mrs. Shira Smiles examines the attack of Amalek on the Jews. Amalek symbolizes the yetzer horo whose purpose is to lead us to self destruction. Mrs. Smiles discusses how the Jews were awakened to teshuva and how we too can strengthen ourselves to fight against the evil inclination. This Torah class is available online in streaming video and
