Welcome to a non-conventional halacha course, launched by TheYeshiva.net, presenting for the first time the intricacies of Jewish law with its spiritual and psychological symbolisms in Chassidus.
Rabbi Levy Wineberg, author of Lessons in Tanya and an halachic scholar, is the Rosh Kolel of the Mizrachi Kolel and dean of Beis Mindrash LeHoraah, a rabbinical ordination institute in Johannesburg, South Africa.
“There is no real understanding of Judaism and of Chassidus without a mastery of Halacha. This new series will demonstrate how each law mirrors and reflects some of the richest and exciting ideas in Chassidus,” says Rabbi YY Jacobson, dean of TheYeshiva.net.
Tonight he explores the second class of the prohibition known as Tzad—trapping animals on Shabbos. You will discover the practical principles of this Melacha, and you will also discover the fascinating parallels to these laws in Chassidus.
