Blessing Leishev BaSukkah: Lesson
It is simple enough to summarize the bottom-line halacha governing the brachot to be recited on the Sukkah.
But an analysis of the sources for these halachot illuminates an astonishing number of fundamental principles of halachic methodology that have wide application throughout the length and breadth of Torah.
In class we will examine the primary sources, translate them, and explain them.
The links return WORD format and pdf versions of the sources.
In addition to being one of Rabbi Brovender's first students, Rabbi Dovid Fink is an outstanding expertﾠand teacher of Halacha. Rabbi Fink received his Rabbinic ordination from ITRI and the Mir and was awarded his Ph.D in Semitic Languages and Linguistics from Yale University.
