Kayin, Hevel and Shet
by Rav Amnon Bazak
Why did God accept Hevel’s offering, but not that of Kayin? And why did this rejection lead Kayin to kill his brother? In this shiur, we will discuss how the names and actions of Kayin and Hevel reflect two different perspectives, and further explain why it was the dynasty of Shet that ultimately survived to build the world.
Fig Leaves and Coats of Skins
by Harav Aharon Lichtenstein zt"l
“And they sewed fig leaves together and made for themselves loincloths.” (Bereishit 3:7); “And the Lord God made for Adam and for his wife coats of skins, and He clothed them.” (3:21). Before man embarks on his new, long road, God equips him with coats of skins, which envelop him with new dignity and beauty and transform him into a new person.

What opportunities are there for special-needs high school graduates who also want to have a year in Israel - and a fulfilling life after that?
Read about the remarkable Darkaynu program, whose male division takes place in Yeshivat Har Etzion.
What's Happening in Israel
Visits to Har Etzion by the most elite instructional institution in the IDF - The IDF Command and Staff College ("Pum") - seem to have become a tradition. Brigadier General Commander Noam Tivon explains why: "I consider Rav Medan a leader, an ideological leader, but also a leader who seeks ways to build bridges, and therefore it is so important to hear him."
