Course syllabus / YU only
The course will focus upon two broad subjects in Hilchos Shabbos: Kiddush & Havdala. While there will be a strong emphasis
on Halacha li’maaseh, the practical application of the Halacha, we will also discuss the definition and conceptualization and
definition of Halachic terms that serve as the underpinning for the Halacha. The Shulchan Aruch and Mishnah Berurah will be
used throughout, but there will also be discussion of the early sources that elucidate the Halacha, and many She’elos U’Teshuvos
and other contemporary works will be introduced as well. There will be and emphasis on understanding the halachic process and
how normative halachic practice emerges from careful analysis of the issues.
