Course Description

THIS COURSE IS PART OF THE WEBYESHIVA.ORG HALACHA MASTERY PROGRAM.
TO APPLY TO JOIN THIS COURSE, PLEASE CLICK HERE.

 

In this course, we will study the laws of Aveilut (mourning). We will review the topics of practical importance, including aninut, burial, beginning of the seven days of mourning (shiva) and its laws and customs, the shloshim and twelve month periods of mourning, kaddish and yahrtzeit. Our primary text will be the Shulchan Arukh (Yoreh De’ah), but will we begin each topic from its Talmudic source and trace its development throughout the centuries until the modern era. This topic promises to be both interesting and challenging.

Shavua Tov!

Here is a tentative source sheet for this week. We will be covering the "pre-burial" stage, including respect for the body, tahara, and then the laws of keria. I hope to send a final copy later this week.

As I mentioned at the end of last week's shiur. I have written of parts of the aninut and kevura shiurim. I would be happy to share them (not for distribution). Please email me if you are interested.

Kol tuv!

Hilchot Aveilut

Here is the final version for this week's shiur. We will discuss the obligation to mourn, and for whom does one mourn.

Regarding our weekly shiur, I was asked to mention two small requests. First, apparently some of those who listen to the shiur are accidentally leaving their microphone on, which is affecting the quality of the audio. Please turn off your microphones. If you need any assistance, I am sure Ezra can help. Second, we would appreciae if more of you would turn on your camera- it will contribute to the sense of a "virtual classroom". (I will not be offended if you are multi-tasking...).

 

See you on Thursday!

David Brofsky
