Halacha Mastery: Hilchot Aveilut

Halacha Mastery: Hilchot Aveilut

THIS IS A WEBYESHIVA.ORG HALACHA MASTERY PROGRAM COURSE. TO JOIN THE HALACHA MASTERY PROGRAM PLEASE SUBMIT AN APPLICATION. For more information about this program please CLICK HERE.

In this course, Rabbi David Brofsky will review the topics of practical importance to Hilchot Aveilut 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.
