קרי וכתיב / Kri & Ketiv
Some words in the written Torah are not pronounced the way they are written. In some cases they are written completely different than how they are pronounced. This is called the קרי וכתיב / Kri & Ketiv: the ketiv, the written words, and kri, how they are actually read. Join Rabbi Dr. Stuart Fischman as he explores the history of how this came about and the relevant halachic issues when reading from the Torah.
Rabbi Dr. Stuart Fischman graduated from Yeshiva University in 1980 and the dental school of Columbia University in 1985. In 1989 he began studying and teaching at Yeshivat Hamivtar and now studies and teaches at Yeshivat Machanaim in Efrat. He has rabbinic ordination from Rav Zalman Nechemia Goldberg.
