"Who Separates between Israel and the Nations"

Rabbi Elie Kaunfer

Jews and Non-Jews in Jewish Prayer

What does it mean to bless God for "separating" Jews and the other nations in Havdallah? Elie Kaunfer will do a close literary analysis of this berakhah for the end of Shabbat, examining the biblical sources as well as modern approaches. This lecture was recorded at the Summer Yom Iyyun 2013.
