“Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spent two and a half hours Thursday afternoon studying the Cain and Abel story, telling some 17 rabbis and academics gathered at his residence that the jealousy in that story is a “powerful engine” that he has come across once or twice in his own profession,” reports the Jerusalem Post. “The question he asked, but which no one answered directly, was what was the Torah’s recipe for dealing with someone inflamed by jealousy and unable to control himself.  Netanyahu made no reference, either directly or indirectly, to anyone currently on the political scene. Thursday’s study session was the second installment of a Bible study circle he initiated in May, just before Shavuot, dedicated to his father-in-law Shmuel Ben-Artzi, a noted Bible teacher and enthusiast who died last November. Two pictures of Ben-Artzi were placed in the corner of the outdoor porch where the study session took place, behind a flickering memorial candle.” To read the full article, please click here.
