If you would like to learn a selected topic on Shavuos night but don’t know where to begin, look no further! Rabbi Immanuel Bernstein has prepared a number of topics, adapted from his book Journeys in Talmud, designed to guide users through the primary Gemaras, the positions of the Rishonim and selected insights of the Acharonim. The topics are presented in a way whereby the user is encouraged to ask particular questions and then to use the sources to work out possible answers. This year, we are pleased to present the following three topics for study:
Spreading Holiness (Exploring the concept of tosefes Shabbos)
Nine-Tenths of the Law – and Counting… (Hamotzi me’chaveiro – The Power of Possession in Torah Law )
Too Good to Pass Up (Ain Maavirin al Hamitzvos – We Do Not Pass a Mitzvah By)
