The weekly Torah class expounds on one or more topics found in the weekly
Sidrah (Torah reading) and delves deeper, going beneath the surface and
striving to tap the hidden wellsprings of knowledge found in the Torah. All
different types of sources are used: drush, mussar (ethics), chassidus,
etc. A wide base of Torah commentaries is used, from the earliest Rishonim
Rather than simply creating an entertaining intellectual challenge, a
strong emphasis is placed on grasping what the Torah has to say to us, and
implementing it in our everyday lives. Halachic sources are often quoted,
and stories of Gedolim (Torah Giants) and Tzaddikim (righteous individuals)
are used generously to enhance the class material.
Rabbi Eliyahu Hoffmann is currently a Maggid Shiur (teacher) and Menahel
(principal) in Mesivta Chassidei Bobov of Toronto.
The electronic version of Olas Shabbos BeShabbato is taken from the English
section of a weekly publication distributed to synagogues throughout the
Greater Toronto Area and by fax around the world.
