Insights into Agadah 2 - Five Interpretations of the Three Watches (Mishmarot)

This shiur studies the classic text of Agadeta found in Gemara Brachot, focusing as well on the commentaries of Ein Ya'akov of Rabbi Ya'akov ibn Habib and Ein Ayah from Rav Kook.

During our first shiur, we introduced the concept that the night is divided into three "watches" - mishmarot. In this shiur, we look at five unique perspectives on what these "watches" represent - all very different, each interpretation conveying a valuable and important lesson.
