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 week’s chaburah, we saw the Ran’s understanding on how prayer can effect change, and the relationship between metaphysical causes and physical events.
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?
