  • Parashat Vayeshev Theme
    The need for vulnerability that contains no element of psychological protectionism is the center of achieving עד שאבוא לאדני שעירה. The destruction here in history and in the personality of יעקב אבינו is traced directly to the need to control דינה and עשו, with disastrous results. The expression in economics of Yisrael’s success is only meaningful if it is not in terms of על חרבך תחיה but the real outgrowth of becoming a nation engaged. This is why psychology becomes the basis of all the future here, though it has no place in the boardroom.

    The מ''ט פנים לטהרה ומ''ט פנים לטומאה (assuming that the מ''ח פנים of סומכוס תלמידו של רבי מאיר are part of a larger whole*) appear in the מנורת זכריה and are the alternative to נכלי דתות, for even within the consistency of one פן לתורה there need to be openness to all the potential אור. This is why רבי מאיר is both אחרים and נהוראי, because לא יכלו חביריו לעמוד על סוף דעתו.
    *Same relationship as תורה נקנית במ''ח דברים and מ''ט ימים של ספירת העומר

  • Advanced Vayeshev  —  Advanced FrameWorks" Series presented to Kolel Fellows, 1995 Theme
    The search for שלוה is a search for primal innocence which is nonetheless aware of בושה and vulnerability. There can be no short cuts, and the entire history of Yisrael is defined by this short parasha which contains the subconscious of a people and the issues that must be rectified before we can become whole, before תשובה.
