Instructor: Elisha Ancselovits
Description: In this shiur, we learn halakhot in depth from Tanakh through contemporary poskim. The goals of this shiur are:
- To unpack the contradictory human concerns that halakhot address
- To learn to make decisions by actually incorporating all of the contradictory underlying concerns
- To work on speaking these human concerns in rabbinic language
- We will be studying hilchot Aveilut and Niddah.
Kollel students are expected to learn with Year Program students during Seder Erev (Tu, 6:00-8:00 pm), and/or during select lunchtimes, and to be active and involved participants in community life.
