Parashat Ki Tavo

Here are two of my shiurim for Parashat Ki Tavo.

Inside, Outside: - Our parasha contains a string of public ceremonies; whther Bikkurim, or the Tithe Confession (Viduy Masrot) or even the covenental spectacle at Har Eval and Har Gerizim. In reading this paraha, I feel that there is a fascinating interplay between teh private personal domain, and the public sphere where here, the Torah uses one meduium to effect the other.

The Covenant at Arvot Moav: Did you know that this parasha contains the event in which the nation of Israel express their agreement to the conditions of keeping the Torah? Where do we find this in the parasha? Why wasn't Mt. Sinai enough?

Thanks to Yeshivat Eretz Hatzvi for posting my shiurim.
