    I listened to your shiur on mishpotim where you were frustrated with the laws of  משכון. I would like to point out that the  law of returning משכון   each night i generaly before  חוב is due .I'm sure you know this but didn't come out that way.

      See rashi here that it is not the case here. 
      It is after it was due and the man didn’t pay.

    Great class! however socialism is about abusing capitalist, not about kindness (perhaps a better word, at night a... philanthropist).

    A beautiful, beautiful class. My take away of today’s class:

    We never just worship the god of truth. In the name of truth the worst atrocities in history were committed.

    There is a process: We start first with the God of Abraham (chesed, connecting to the human truth, not my truth), then the God of Yitzchok, (we need boundaries to protect justice and chesed to make sure they are expressing truth) and then the God of Yakov(truth). Only after working through the first 2 stages we can hope to find real truth, Divine truth.
    In the third stage I’m able to touch a truth that has been infused first with chesed and yiraha. So it’s no longer a truth of my own narrow perspective, it becomes a much broader truth. In this passuk God teaches us that ultimate truth never stands on it’s own, it’s always a balance between justice and chesed.
    Thank you so much.

      Yes, Rochelle.  First comes chesed (Avraham) , but chesed alone means you give away everything.  Then comes gevurah (Yitzchak), but gevurah alone is strict justice and Hashem already saw the world cannot exist on din alone (which of us are sin free?), and then comes the blend, the golden mean, Yakov, from whom karl Yisroel was built.
