5771 — VaYera: Isaac’s Story

Posted by Neima Novetsky on October 20, 2010
Topics: Bereishit (Genesis), VaYera, Isaac

In this episode, Neima Novetsky discusses parsha VaYera. When reading of the binding of Isaac, most focus on God’s troubling command and Avraham’s response. This podcast will instead turn to the mostly silent figure of Isaac, trying to understand his side of the story.
