with Rav Yosef
to begin on Monday evening, October 11th, 7:30 – 9:00 PM
Everyone is invited to join this year’s Gemara shiur, at which we’ll be studying the third perek of Massechet Shabbat. This perek takes us into both conceptual and practical discussions about how “cooking” is defined in terms of Shabbat law, and how we can work within that definition to nonetheless produce hot food and beverages for and on Shabbat. Following the “cooking” sugyot, the perek moves to a comprehensive study of that concept we call muktzah, and we will discover that it is in fact not one, rather numerous sub-concepts and categories, each with its own parameters and spiritual goals.
Each Gemara shiur includes guided Havruta time. While previous experience with Gemara is a significant plus, everyone is welcome and you may use whichever version of Gemara (Original, Steinsaltz, Artscroll, etc.) works best for you.
In the coming days, we will finalize the “where” question, in light of people’s indoor / outdoor comfort levels. We will also provide an option for Zooming in to the shiur.
