Course Description

The sages taught us that the zealous performance of mitzvot is swift (זריזין מקדימין למצוות).

Why is zeal equated with performing mitzvot at the first opportunity?

How fast are we required to rush to fulfill a mitzva?

Is it better to rush and minimally fulfill a mitzva or to wait until you can do the mitzva better?

Should a brit mila be scheduled in the early morning or later when more guests can attend?

Must Chanukka candles be lit at the beginning of the night, or can you wait and light them later?

We will survey the opinions of the great poskim on these and related matters.

Texts are in Hebrew; in class we will translate and explain the texts.

Zeal & Mitzvot: How Fast Should You Run?

Today we conclude the text of Shaarei Gan Eden, providing some justification for prayers and other mitsvot performed too late in the day.

Then we begin the issue of drawing conclusion from the deeds of the Patriarchs (Avraham, Yitschak, and Yaakov), who lived before the Torah was given to us at Mt. Sinai.
