1000 Years of Jewish History in Halakha

1000 Years

(5782 - Spring Semester) (Monday) Over the past millennium, the Jewish community has faced many challenges, opportunities, and changes, and all of these have been reflected and refracted through the lens of Halakha. In this course, we address the halakhic challenges that arose directly from important historical events, starting from the 11th Century and continuing up to the Second World War. The 5781 syllabus reached 1802, with an examination of Napoleon and the Emancipation. Beginning in Feb 2022, Rav Tabory will continue to explore halakhic ramifications of the 19th and 20th century. New shiurim will be released every two weeks.
