In this class we will study an essay by Rav Yitzchak Hutner, the Pachad Yitzchak, in which he argues that the unwrittenness of the Oral Torah is key to the covenant between God and the Jewish people.

And how can the Oral Torah teach us about the value of intimacy--and even secrets--in our relationships?
