Yitro 

Description

The story of the revelation seems to present contradictory evidence. On the one hand, God asked us whether we wanted to accept the Torah. On the other hand, the famous Gemara in Shabbat explicitly states that we were forced to accept the Torah. So which is it: voluntary, or coerced? We study the short section from Shabbat 88a in depth, and conclude the shiur with a beautiful and powerful piece from Rav Kook in Ein Ayah. Not to be missed!
