Responses to Suffering in the Book of Genesis
Rabbi David Silber / November 29, 2012
The covenant takes four generations to fulfill- the first three generations suffer without ever experiencing the relief of that suffering, which allows the fourth generation to enter the Land of Israel. This shiur was presented as part of an evening of learning dedicated to Hurricane Sandy relief.
