הכנעו וחיו חיים של ענווה ונמיכות רוח  פטר"א ה' 1-5 בשיעור זה נתרכז יותר על הפסוק האחרון, פסוק 5. פטרוס קורא לצעירים להכנע לזקנים מתוך מקום של ענווה. על פי הפסוקים הקודמים אנחנו רואים שפטרוס פונה לזקנים, כינוי זה אינו מעיד בהכרח על גילם כי אם על מעמד של מנהיגים. הקריאה הזו לכניעה כל כך חשובה כי באופן טבעי בני אדם אינם חפצים להכנע לאף אחד. העולם מסביבנו מעביר לנו מסר ברור: איש הישר בעינייו יעשה, … [Read more...]

During Passover, we tend to focus on the amazing story of deliverance of the entire community of … [Read more...]
