Thoughts on Rabbi Hirsch: Video Shiurim
In these brief (fifteen minute) shiurim, I plan to use Rabbi Hirsch’s thoughts on Chumash and the Moadim to focus on some of the more fundamental themes of his system. I hope these will allow you to better integrate Hirschian – Torah – values into your daily lives; lives constantly building in moral strength.
