Yoel: always enjoy your studies. I was wondering if you could include sources you use for these torah portions? Although it is good to research on our own, I believe most of us do not have that kind of time and would appreciate some sources as a quick reference to help us with facts. anyways thanks for all you do to help educate us.

    In most cases on this series I used Hebrew sources written by Israeli scholars. I do this to make sources like this available to some degree. Most of the work here on the series is me condensing many things I have studies in the past, and I am not using a list of sources in front of me. When I post an article I usually give sources, but not for podcasts.
