Dear All,

It was great to get started learning together last night! I am posting now the sources for the next 2 sessions, all in one document, because it is one topic. 

Shabbat shalom, besorot tovot,

Topic: The Five Days that precede the hefsek taharah once the woman is a niddah.

We covered the development of the 5-day minimum, and discussed Rav Moshe Feinstein's teshuva with regard to exceptional cases. 

Next week we will discuss his final case of "halakhic infertility," where a woman ovulates before she goes to the mikvah due to waiting a full 12 days.

Hilchot Nidda (Women's track)

This week we finished up the "five days" and began discussing hefsek tahara.

We covered the following issues:

1) The centrality of this bedika to change the halakhic presumption from a woman who is seeing blood to one who is not seeing blood.

2) The issue of timing: ideally in the late afternoon but before sunset, bedi'avad OK in the morning unless it was רואה יום אחד in which case the afternoon is essential.

3) The idea of the moch - which is a minhag lechatchilah in general, and the shulchan arukh views it as essential in the רואה יום אחד  case. ** We will discuss the moch further next time as well.

4) Does starting shabbat early change day into night for the purpose of hefsek tahara? Terumat haDeshen - yes, Rema says ideally a woman does the bedika before the community davens maariv (ie to be machmir like the Terumat haDeshen) and bedi'avad she can still do the bedika until actual sunset.

Next week we will continue discussing the hefsek tahara and cover the following issues:

1) Type of cloth to use.

2) Method of the bedika

3) Washing prior to the hefsek tahara

4) The Moch

5) What happens if a woman did her bedika after sunset?

For some background regarding sunset and nightfall and what "bein hashmashot" is, see this short piece: http://www.yutorah.org/lectures/lecture.cfm/710224/Rabbi_Daniel_Z-_Feldman/Halakhic_Night

Please feel free to be in touch with any questions.

Looking forward,

Sally

Shalom to All,

Looking forward to our upcoming shiur as we discuss Mikveh. This week we will relate to the fundamental halacha of the mikveh, the timing of tevilah and the bracha over tevilah. Next week we will discuss chatzitzot, barriers to tevilah.

As always, please feel free to be in touch with any questions you may have.

Shavua tov,
Sally

I have uploaded the source sheet regarding Chatziza - intervening substances between the woman and the mikveh water. These sources will take us at least 2 weeks.

Looking forward to hearing specific questions you would like us to address with regard to chatzitzot. Feel free to email me privately if you prefer.

All the best,
Sally

Shalom to All,

I hope you are all well.  I have uploaded this week's source sheet to the website. As I mentioned at the end of last week's class, I may not record the entire shiur, since it relates to a sensitive topic. Anyone who cannot attend live is welcome to be in touch afterward to try to fill in what was missed.

As always, I am always happy to answer questions - please be in touch!

Shavua tov,

Sally

Shalom to All,

This week we discussed "Hilkhot Tzniut," with regard to intimacy. As I had said, we did not record the shiur so that everyone would feel comfortable discussing this sensitive topic. We have a few more points to finish up next week; I am posting the sources for this topic now, and in the coming days I will post next week's sources for preparation.

As always, I am happy to answer any questions you may have and to go over what was missed by anyone who could not attend live.

All the best,
Sally

Shalom to All,

Today we finished our discussion of intimacy and touched upon some halakhot particular to a kallah getting married. We also began the topic of the harchakot. The class was recorded and is available in the archives.

In addtion to part one of the sources on harchakot that I posted earlier in the week, I put up another few sources that I am now posting to the website for the class.

Looking forward to next week, be'ezrat Hashem!

Please feel free to be in touch with any questions.

Kol tuv,
Sally
