For my personal celebration of Purim, I have decided to present a series of lessons (shiurim) on the Torah, the Bible. I do so with simplicity, and with at least a desire for humility. (I can touch matters of intellectual activity, but, I have no bearing on matter of character. Spirituality escapes both my grasp and my expression.)
I have always been excited by Jewish rigor in thought, and originality in scripture. I offer these simple lessons in appreciation for Jewish tradition and for the sacred Word, the Torah, the Bible.
We begin at Genesis 1, or, Bereshith. These first series of shiurim included eleven lessons. These lessons cover only the first five verses, Genesis 1: 1-5. The study is patient, without any hurried attempts at understanding or conclusion. (This is related to the methodology described in the first tape.)
Each lesson is approximately 5 minutes long, for the hearer’s convenience. Enjoy!
Here is the first video, the Introduction
(I have made many tapes regarding Comanche affairs as well, and I will make a list of those also, coming soon.)
One other note: all I have to work with is a little webcam, with a very short chord. These videos are made in my office, next to my computer, near my piano, etc. A thousand pardons for the thousand-and-one distractions in the background.
NOTE: When this blog is archived, I suggest that comments and questions thenceforth be posted directly on the individual YouTube episodes. Thank you.
