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 Halacha from the weekly Parsha. Halacha is intricate,
extensive and all encompassing. We cannot possibly cover all areas of Halacha 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 Halacha that stem from the
psukim in the weekly Parsha that are relevant to 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 for you.
