HaRav Shraga Kallus 5/4/2022-INTRODUCTION TO HILCHOS SHIHIYA

This shiur sets out some of the basic concerns for shhia, hatmana and hachzara and then discusses some practical implications. There’s a difference between a psychological concern that you’ll want to continue cooking and one that your act will look like cooking.

HaRav Asher Weiss 5/1/2022-SEFIRAS HAOMER

Women’s exemption from sfirat haomer? Rambam says it is not a mitzvah aseih shehazman grama. Why not? Women today should  count sfira!

Ntilat yadayim is an important drabanan (since it has  asmachtsa as a source). Is it due to srach truma or nkiut? Is it a mitzvah or matir?

HaRav Simcha Bunim Londinsky 5/3/2022-IYUNIM BHILCHOS SHIHIYA

Mchateh – is it showing you’re not thinking about cooking or is it to reduce the heat? Current day applications discussed for blechs, knobs, crockpots et al.

HaRav Shaul Katz 5/5/2022-HAKDAMAH TO HILCHOS SHIHIYA

Shiaa is a problem of shema yichateh – practically it can be avoided with garuf (coals taken) or katum (covered). Chazara (if fully cooked) could still be machzei kmvasheil – thus workarounds are explained herein.

HaRav Shraga Kallus 5/11/2022-PRINCIPLES OF SHIHIYA

How do we paskin the machloket of chizkia and the rabannan in garuf and and katum’s application to shiaa? Why does the Rama sometimes say vchen nohagim and sometimes vnahagu?

HaRav Simcha Bunim Londinsky 5/17/2022-עיונים בהלכות בישול

“Kderech kayta” – under what conditions can you leave something on the flame (without a blech) when you know it won’t be ready until the next morning?

 

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1HH4Cf74YNCZm5y1blqVJ9dj1ATCBaVCD/view

HaRav Shraga Kallus 5/18/2022-HILCHOS SHIHIYA – HALACHA LIMAYSEH

More on garuf vkatum being evidence of non-normal cooking intent. The Chazon Ish understood these are ruining of the flame and thus a blech wouldn’t meet the criteria. Do modern stove tops and ovens have a different nature than those of the gemara? (yes, but we’re machmir anyway). Also discussed, how to properly use a crockpot (maybe tinfoil inserts isn’t enough)

HaRav Asher Weiss 5/22/2022-TORAH OR MITZVOS: WHICH HAS PREFERENCE IN HALACHA

Which is greater – Talmud tora or maaseh?It’s really both! Tora which brings to maaseh is the best (not just knowledge but also desire).

HaRav Uri Deutsch 5/19/2022-יסודי הלכות שהייה וחזרה

We can learn an important insight into the nature of chitui (and chanania) from the gemara’s differentiation of the concern for chitui in a kira vs. a tanur.

HaRav Simcha Bunim Londinsky 5/29/2022-Hilchos Bishul: New Halachic Issues

Ovens and stovetops are different today so we need to match our mitziut to chazal’s concerns.

 

Cooking on top of a kdeira – what were the chazal’s concerns and how do they apply to stoves, ovens and crockpots today?

HaRav Shraga Kallus 5/25/2022-HILCHOS BISHUL LIMAYSEH: SHIYA VCHAZARA

Shehiya in our day – covering knobs is likely not enough, we need to show we’re not in the cooking process.  This means if you always leave tinfoil in the crockpot, it doesn’t help  since it looks like it’s your regular cooking process.

 

Also covered – is mitztameik vyafeh/vra lo based on you, your guests or a larger community?

HaRav Uri Deutsch 5/26/2022-עיונים בהלכות בישול – ודברי מחשבה

Is shiah defined by the act or the state of being (eg if put on while the flame was dampened and then flame grew) Don’t adjust the flame once the blech is on (else you’re showing cooking interest)

HaRav Asher Weiss 5/29/2022-Inyanei Chag HaShavuos

There are many practices as to what to learn for tikkun leil Shavuot, they’re all good.

 

Standing for aseret hadibrot is also fine (Yisrael are bnai nviim).

HaRav Dovid Heber 5/30/2022-Contemporary Halachic Issues: Bishul and Related Questions

Topics include: practical determination of maachal ben drosai, crockpot issues (shihia and chazara – mechzei kmvashel), avsha milsa (machine noise issue), chaita (does putting in raw ingredients right before shabbat work today) and amira lakum.

HaRav Moshe Heinemann 5/30/2022-Technology in Hilchos Shabbos

Hot plates with thermostats are a shabbat problem. Urns with reheating functions are a problem but glass water level indicators are. Kdeira blech is questionable. Long discussion of yom tov mode –  what were the issues and solutions.

HaRav Shaul Katz 6/7/2022-Hilchos Shabbos Bishul – The Shabbos Blech

Warming drawers can be a shiya or hachzara issue. Does anyone use such a drawer to cook? Where is the heat source? Is the temperature adjustable?

 

Also covered – hot water urns

HaRav Uri Deutsch 6.2.2022-חג השבועות בהלכה ובמחשבה

Special simcha on Shavout – is it part of simchat yom tov? Duraita or drabanan? Either way, kabalat hatora transforms us.

 

R Shaul

C.I. vs R Moshe on blechs (is it garuf/katum or min hatzaad)? Do you have to cover the fire, the knobs or both?

HaRav Asher Weiss 6/12/2022-BIRCHAS KOHANIM

HaRav Shraga Kallus 7/6/2022-PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS – CHAZARA

Heating challah on the cholent pot could have basar vchalav issues. This method, and upside-down pans, make it obvious that ein derech bishul bkach. Does a kdeirah blech work in a similar way?

 

Specific causes of putting kugel on a pot and then later on the blech (R Kalus works out a way to do it – I’m guessing most folks would not get the lomdus or practice) and getting hot water into a boiling cholent (apparently this is a case that we can rely on leniencies!)

HaRav Simcha Bunim Londinksky 7/26/2022-IYUNIM B’HILCHOS HATMANA

 

More on hatmana – kulo vs. miktzat. Some interesting side issues including: 1. in tshuvat rama he writes that in the darkei moshe when he writes “vheim nahagu” he doesn’t mean that it’s the din but that’s what’s done. When he writes ”vchen nohagin” it means it’s mikar hadin (and thus the former is more subject to being overridden). 2. “Some say” parts of the mishna brurah were written by the chofetz chaim’s son-in-law. Even if this is true, the chazon Ish says it’s heresy to use that to explain conflicts in the mishna brura (Me-paying R Hershel Schacter) 3 when the mishna brura names a source (within the text, not in the sharei tzion) it means he doesn’t hold by it 4 tin foil doesn’t work for halachic reasons to defeat crock pot hatmana (need to use an empty tuna can)

HaRav Shraga Kallus 7/27/2022-INYAN HATMANA HALACHA LIMAYSEH

 

Hatmana topics including: hatmana bmiktzat, hatmana meelav (towel fell and covered all the pots), change in intent (covered to protect, left on to heat), and the minhag to have hot food on shabbat. In the context of having hot food on shabbat (eg have it during the day and more than a hot drink), R Kallus says “the more you are machmir the better you are”. I’m not sure about this as a general approach to life and it’s particularly interesting in this case given all the complexities this series has emphasized in the Shabbos kitchen. Would the sum total of sabbath observance be increased if people ate cold food on shabbat?
