Course syllabus / YU only
COURSE OBJECTIVES: Welcome to a wonderful new semester in Stern College for Women! I am excited to
learn and grow together with you through our study of Hilchos Shabbos. Hilchos Shabbos is intricate, extensive
and all encompassing. We cannot possibly cover all its details in just a few short months. What we will attempt to
do in this course is study a variety of essential and practical topics in Hilchos Shabbos that are relevant on a
weekly basis for all of us.
To me, there is nothing more enjoyable than having the opportunity to explore the fascinating development of
Halacha from it’s primary sources in the days of the Mishna and Gemarah, segueing into the period of the
Rishonim and Achronim, and coming to decisive conclusions with the modern day Poskim and greats of our
generation. If you have yet to be on such a journey, this should serve as an eye opening and enriching opportunity
