Description

Shimon and Levi were tzaddikim, not murderers! Yet Yaacov critiques them severely in both Vayishlach and Vayechi?! Ramban seeks a middle path in understanding their actions, while disagreeing halachically with Rambam on hilchos sheva mitzvos bnei Noach. (Ran and Meiri in Sanhedrin 56b offer additional perspective on Ramban.)
