Description

In this insightful conversation with Dr. Lisa Fredman, we discuss the different leadership styles of Reuven and Yehuda and the reasons why Yehuda, while not the firstborn, becomes a prominent leader despite difficult beginnings.

This week’s episode has been dedicated in memory of Basha and Leible Guttman by their daughter Sarah Waldman.

This Bereshit series is titled Choseness and Choices.  The book of Bereshit is propelled forward by God’s chosen representatives: Adam, Noach, 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 is explored in this series.
