The book of Judges (Shoftim) features descriptions of Jewish leaders who for one reason or another were atypical and therefore draw to themselves considerable attention. Among these intriguing Biblical figures are Devora, Gidon, Yiftach and Shimshon. We will study their personalities, achievements and failures in order to attempt to understand the period during which they lived and the challenges that each in turn faced during this curious period of Jewish history.
