Intro: In our last shiurim, we focused on Yehoshua. Now, we will move onto Shoftim, and compare it to Yehoshua. We will also outline the two themes in this Perek which will continue throughout Sefer Shoftim.
Lack of leadership – manhigut
Failure of Am Israel to kick out the other nations in
Israel (hitnachalut- settling the land) – which leads to them worshipping avodah zara, as they are then influenced by those nations.
Lack of unity among the shevatim - achdut. They act as separate nations and not as one cohesive unit.
(1) The chanichim will see the failures and lack of leadership of the Shoftim generation by contrasting the first two perakim of Shoftim to parallels in Sefer Yehoshua.
(2) The chanichim will realize the issues created due to Bnei Israel not taking initiative to finish conquering the land and kick out the avodah zara worshipping nations.

Topic: This peulah deals with the
meeting of Halacha – received from Hashem thousands of years ago at Har Sinai –
with the ever-changing, always advancing technology of the soon to be 21st
century. Some people would like to say that Halacha is outdated, it doesn’t
apply anymore or holds us back from being part of modern society. We know
better. The rabbis of every generation have the ability to apply the principles
of Halacha to any possibility that you can imagine. Their amazing knowledge of
the Torah ensures that for every new product that technology can create, there
is a halacha to go with it, telling us how to use it.
Goal: To show that Halacha\Torah is not old and inapplicable but contains
information to cover all situations that futuristic technology can conceive.
peulah aims to instill in all of us a certain appreciation for the adaptability
of Halacha and how it can help to live our lives properly.
