Inaugural Halakhah Intensive
May 13-17, 2018
190 Amsterdam Ave, New York 10023
About the Program:
Join us for a brand-new, multi-day intensive focused on an in-depth study of a targeted area of halakhah. Participants will spend full days immersed in original sources, as we begin with Tanakh and the classical sources of Hazal and then explore their contemporary application. Led by Rabbi Ethan Tucker and Rabbi Aviva Richman, the Hadar faculty will guide this week of intense learning. Bring your deep interest in halakhah and your thirst for more knowledge.
This year's topic: Interactions with Gentiles on Shabbat, will focus on the concept of אמירה לנכרי and dig deeper into key questions such as:
- Is Shabbat meant to be a day of rest for all or just for Jews?
- Do we aspire for a world-wide day of rest or simply to discipline our own behavior?
- When does involving ourselves with Gentile-מלאכה enhance Shabbat and when does it detract from it?
- Is it demeaning to ask others to do tasks we could easily do ourselves, were it not for Shabbat?
- Or is this an opportunity for cross-cultural and interfaith partnership?
Who: Anyone with an interest in learning more about halakhah; This program is an excellent resource for rabbis, rabbinical students, and graduate students.
