Eim Habanim Semeichah Shiur 9 - The Truth of the Torah Part 1

Audio Shiur:
Eim Habanim Semeichah Shiur 9 - The Truth of the Torah Part 1
(This shiur studies the classic work of Rav Yissachar Teichtal on the importance of settling the Land of Israel, following the Hebrew text with English translation.)

Rav Teichtal introduces the notion that the Torah is a "morashah" - an inheritance. In order to do so, he introduces the words of Rambam in the famous "Iggeret Teiman" (Letter to Yemen) in which Rambam encourages the people of Yemen to resist persecution, and begins by describing the truth of Revelation at Har Sinai. We begin with antisemitism, and work our way towards proof in God, and the fundamental foundations of Jewish faith.
