Listen On


In this conversation with beloved Matan lecturer Dr. Tanya White, we discuss the fateful choices made by Adam and Kayin and how they differ.

This Bereshit series is titled Choseness and Choices.  The book of Bereshit is propelled forward by God’s chosen representatives: Adam, Kayin, Noah, Avraham, Yitzchak, Yaakov, but these messengers impact the world because of the choices they make.  It is the nexus between being chosen and the human choices that actualize the divine will in the world that we will be exploring in this series.

This week’s episode has been sponsored in memory of Leah bat Harav Moshe Natan Halevi and Toibe z”l.
