Very late in the day I upload some offerings for the greatest of days. Reading sheets first, followed by audio shiurim (all of which have source sheets).
Reading Sheets (some new, some from previous years)
I.L. Peretz’s ‘If Not Higher’ – A class story by the great Yiddish writer
Man’s Mortality On Yom Kippur – Midrashim, Rav Hirsch, Michael Wyschogrod
Man’s Lowliness and Greatness – Erich Auerbach and Rav Aharon Lichtenstein
Talmudic Tales of Teshuva:
Rav Hutner suggests that the shofar is both a groan and a cry of joy, and to understand that this same paradox is at the nature of what it means to be human. Only by understanding what the rabbis meant when they said ‘better for man not have been created’, can we understand that in fact it indeed ‘very good’ that man was created.
