17th Yerushalayim Yarchei Kallah  (English Shiurim)




      • NISSAN KAPLAN-Shiur HalachaA compilation of topics I think I’ve reviewed in individual Shiurim of his:
      • Is there a torah chiyuv today of lulav in Jerusalem different from the one  outside of Jerusalem(and implications)
      • Is there really such a thing as a kosher pitumless esrog?
      • Why give your father the less hadar Etrog (unless he’s paying for yours)


      • YECHIEL GOLDHABER-The Mekor of the Mesoros of EsrogimInteresting quasi-academic review of the history of etrogim.  When did the whole issue of grafting take off?  When did the requirement of a “mesorah” become so important?  What does science say about the impact of grafting?  How much of this is due to economics and religious politics? [all too much it seems]







      • CHAIM TZVI SENTER-Shiur IyunYom Tov Shein’s discussion – the whole one day/two day issue for bnai chutz laaretz.  Ties into the classic R’Chaim/Rambam on v’lakachtem and ushmartem as two separate mitzvot. The whole thing comes back to whether Yom Tov sheini of galut is a minhag or a takana (is it reversible based on changed circumstances?)
