Dozens of men gathered at the New Beis Medrash in Crown Heights for an evening of learning on Monday, offering both Chavrusa learning and the chance to join a Shiur.
Participants heard a Shiur from Rabbi Sholom Ber Shuchat, a dayan and posek in Brooklyn, on web-based businesses owned by Jews and the implications of operating them on Shabbos.
The program, which takes place on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, is being organized by a group of men from Crown Heights.
