About Rabbi Dr. Stuart Fischman
Shabbat begins with the lighting of candles and ends with lighting a candle during the Havdalah ceremony. Havdalah may seem like a simple task but there are many questions and unique situations that may arise. First of all, if Shabbat ends with three visible stars in the sky on a Saturday night, why do we even need to do Havdalah? What’s the latest one can recite Havdalah? Why do we use spices and make the blessing over wine? Through the halachot from the Gemara down to contemporary poskim we will journey through the issues at hand, the reasons behind the customs, and why making such a statement of separation between Shabbat and the week is so essential.
Rabbi Stuart Fischman graduated from Yeshiva University in 1980 and the dental school of Columbia University in 1985. Since 1989 he has been studying and teaching at Yeshivat Hamivtar in Efrat. He has rabbinic ordination from Rav Zalman Nechemia Goldberg.
