Laws of Conversion and Circumcision (3)

(Tuesday) We began this series in 5779 by studying the laws of brit mila. Last year, we discussed Chazal's attitude towards giyur and gerim, motivations for giyur, the role of the beit din, and introduced each of the components of giyur (mila, tevila, kabalat mitzvot). Most recently, during the Fall semester of 5781, we discussed topics relating to the tevila (immersion) of a convert, kabbalat mitzvot, and the conversion of children. We also presented some of the challenges of conversion in the modern era, especially in the State of Israel. Interested? Just click here for this year's shiurim.
