Halacha Mastery Summer Program: Laws of Mourning


Sunday 8:00PM
course closed

Course Description

This course is an optional part of the WebYeshiva.org Halacha Mastery Program, open to all WebYeshiva.org students.

 

Mourning inevitably involves conflict between the mourner’s sense of loss and the natural sense of simcha (happiness or joy) that arises in many contexts. We will study the principle halachic texts governing what is permitted and what is forbidden for a mourner during the first seven days after burial, during the following thirty days, and during the following twelve months.
In class we will translate and analyze Hebrew texts drawn from the Talmud, Rishonim, and great modern posekim.

 

The course is free for members of the Halacha Mastery Program (click here to apply), or costs $25 for those who have not yet joined the program.

Rejoicing and Mourning
Mourning inevitably involves conflict between the mourner’s sense of loss and the natural sense of simcha (happiness or joy) that arises in many contexts. We will begin with the concept of simcha as understood by the principle poskim. Sources in Hebrew are available through the link. In class we will translate and explain these sources. The WORD version of the sources is updated and there is now a pdf version of the same sources for MAC users.

The Onset of Mourning

In today's class we will complete our survey of the sources defining the kind of simcha that is prohibited for mourners.

Then we will begin the next topic: When do the seven days of mourning begin? If the mourners attend the funeral, they begin mourning after the deceased is buried. But what if they do not attend (either because the funeral is too far away or because they are infirm)?

Sources, both in WORD format and pdf are available through the link.
