Studies in Halakhah in the religious climate of Masorti/ Conservative Judaism
The Halakhah Study Group offers shiurim on major Halakhic texts, such as the Shulĥan Arukh of Rabbi Yosef Karo, Mishneh Torah of Rambam or the Tur of Rabbi Ya'akov ben-Asher. The first topic that we studied was from the Shulĥan Arukh Oraĥ Ĥayyim #135-#149 on Torah Reading. After that we studied Shabbat Eve in the Home, based on the Shulĥan Arukh Oraĥ Ĥayyim #242 onwards. The third topic studied was the Shabbat Morning Service in the synagogue. The fourth topic, like all the others chosen by the participants, is Giyyur, Conversion to Judaism. Our fifth topic is Eretz-Israel. The format of the shiurim is similar to that established in the Rabin Mishnah Study Group, and notices about these shiurim too are distributed by email.
