This derashah discusses Yaaqov, Eisav, antisemitism, Hashem’s love for the Jews, and how prophecy can tell a future that free will still leaves malleable. In this chaburah, we learned the Ran’s understanding of the gemara’s rule that Edom hates Yaaqov. How did two twins end up so far apart?
We have been using Derashos haRan as a centerpiece a series of discussions to strengthen our own emunah. How do these ideas of Medieval Philosophy from our rishonim related to our own faith, values, and life-goals?
