Shoftim – The Book of Judges – presented by Rabbi Zvi Aryeh Rosenfeld z”l.
*00:00 – Peace in Israel under the leadership of Tolah ben Puah from the tribe of Yissachar.
00:40 – The next leader was Yair HaGiladi of Shevet Menashe (East). He called the villages of his sons “Chavos Yair” to commemorate Yair ben Menashe, who had no children. Why does the Torah mention this? The true offspring of tzaddikim are the Torah and maasim tovim (good deeds) they bring to the world. “Chavos Yair” (gematria is 635: 613 mitzvos plus the 22 letters of the Torah).
