Gal Einai is a parsha-based analysis of a statement of Rashi or Ma'amar Chazal, with an emphasis on understanding how the Pasuk itself leads Chazal to their understanding. The indivisability of the Written Law and the Oral Law, and how the latter is to be derived from the former, is a favorite theme. The teachings of Rav Yochanan Zweig are influential and he is often cited. The style favors brevity and clarity of expression.
