Two Personality Types in Torah - R' Herczeg

Class Description:

Two Personality Types in the Torah - Rav Yisrael Herczeg (Sp '22) Drawing on passages from the Torah and the Gemara, Rav Herczeg presents two personality types that are developed throughout the Torah literature. The Baal Teshuva and Tzaddik Gamur represent two distinct - but complementary - ways of avodas Hashem and intellectual approaches to learning and teaching Torah. This course will clarify many of the underlying themes and dramas of our rich history, while also enabling us to understand our own unique paths to true avodas Hashem. Rav Herczeg is a student of Rav Aryeh Leib Bakst, zt”l, and, יבלחט"א, Rav Zvi Kushelevsky and a musmach of Yeshivat Itri. He is the translator of the ArtScroll Rashi and the author of many seforim, including Patterns in Rashi and Understanding Rashi. Rav Herczeg has lectured in many congregations and institutions of Jewish learning throughout the United States and Canada and has taught Rashi in yeshivos, in seminaries, and in other settings for nearly forty years. This course is 10 sessions.
