Description

Why did Yaakov settle on a temporary basis in a land which he could not call his own? Why were Esau and his decendents excluded from the promise given to Avraham regarding "Zera Avraham" to inherit the Land? Who was the stranger who guided Yosef to locate his brothers & why is this story recorded in the Torah? Why did ALL the shvatim agree to the plan to do away with Yosef? In the Ramban's world view, are the efforts of man really meaningful, or is the Divine Will the only truth? These and many other questions will be addressed in this shiur.
