Aaron Koller on “Love in Akedat Yitzchak"
The first person in the Torah who “loves” another person is Abraham – and we hear of this love an instant before he is told to offer his beloved son as a sacrifice. Why does the Torah discuss love in this context? How does it affect the story of the Akedah, and how does the Akedah allow us to understand love for fellow humans, love for God, and the potential for a clash between those loves?

Elana Stein Hain on “On Love, Hatred and Loyalty”
During the Yamim Noraim season, we are bidden to consider our relationships to one another, to community and to God. In light of this tall task, in this shiur, we will explore the terms of אהבה and שנאה in Tanakh, with an eye towards how their definitions may guide us for the new year.
