Three Shiurim for Parashat Yitro

Here are 3 of my shiurim for Parashat Yitro:

1. Yitro's Visit - a "parshanut" shiur examining Shemot ch.18 and the textual peculiarites of the chapter, alongside some important spiritual messages.

2. The Ten Commandments.
- Why are the Ten Commandments divided into two tablets? What is the significance of the structure of the Asseret Hadibrot

3. The Closing Mitzvot. Following the Ten Commandments, Parashat Yitro closes with 3 Mitzvot which form their own mini-paragraph. Why are these mitzvot tagged along to the end of the parsha. What is their significance?
