    Improve the Present-U Can't Skip to the Future

    Ayn Aya Shabbat v, 46

    The class deals with Rav Kook's way of presenting Kabbala rationally. It deals with the aspects of the revealed world (termed "Rachel") and the hidden world ("Leah"), and how the aspects of appreciating the present (happiness) interplays with the challenges with which life surprises us, giving us opportunities for constant free will to destine those challenges, and build a solid and beautiful future as well, as individuals and as a nation. Keeping one eye on the future doesn't contradict our living in the present.

    Ein Aya

    4 Detractors of Z'chut Avot

    The Talmud teaches that Z'chut Avot (the merits of our fore-fathers) can eventually run out, if Am Yisrael has too many "debits" or sins. Rav Kook analyzes the various opinions regarding the 4 points in Jewish history when the sages felt that Z'chut Avot finished, and how we manage since then.

    Was Reuven Saved from Sinning

    Rav Kook analyzes the various approaches in the Talmud regarding Reuven's sin with Bilha, and suggests an innovative explanation as to why the "ceremony" of the blessings & curses by Mount Gerizim and Mount Eval (upon entering the Land of Israel) adds to those mitzvot already commanded previously. (Ayn Aya Shabbat v, 45)

    Rav Kook's Innovative Approach to the Sins of our Biblical Fathers.

    Ayn Aya, Shabbat v, 44

    Rav Kook, as expected, has an innovative approach to the places in Tanach where it's written that our Biblical heroes sinned, but sometimes our sages say that it wasn't so. Just as different ages require different educational approaches, similarly it's anachronistic to think that the eternal Torah cannot be understood differently in different generations. The messages are eternal but how to leave those same impressions may vary depending on age and time period. The Torah speaks on various levels, and the Written Law and Oral Tradition work together on these different levels. Rav Kook deals here also with midrashim that aren't necessarily meant to be taken as factual. (Ayn Aya, Shabbat v, 44)

    Why They-re Called David ben Yishai - Mashiach ben David.

    (Ayn Aya Shabbat v, 42)

    Why are these 2 figures especially called by their fathers' names? This class deals with a very innovative explanation of an interesting and difficult midrash in Masechet Shabbat referring to the 4 who never sinned, especially Yishai, the father of King David. Also, Rav Kook deals here with the classic question, if the Davidic dynasty is so central to Judaism, why is it that through most of Jewish history it didn't function? Similarly, why is G-d's promise to David that his descendents will once again return to function?

    The 4 Who Never Sinned

    Rav Kook explains the Initial - Inevitable Flawlessness of Israel .

    Rav Kook's innovative explanation of this puzzling gemara/midrash reveals new light on why these 4 character's never made any mistake, and just "died because of the sin of the snake, Adam & Eve. Rav Kook deals with the difference between the 1st line of heroes who all sinned, and those before and after them, who didn't. This classic class deals with leadership, as well as how the sources claim that Israel if flawless, even though we see our shortcomings! (Ayn Aya Shabbat v, 40)
