Halacha Class – Jewish Law
Apr 17 @ 9:00 am – 9:30 am

Come start your day off right at Rutgers with a little Torah! Join our daily morning class immediately following prayers for a short half hour or so studying the “Aruch HaShulchan,” the famous work of acclaimed 19th century halachic decisor Rabbi Yechiel Michel Epstein, as we explore some wonderfully insightful and practical elements of Jewish daily living. We begin this week (Siman 46) with “Birchos HaShachar” – the blessing one recites when they arise in the morning, their sources and meaning and why we say (or shouldn’t say) the ones we say. From there we will continue with “Birchos HaTorah” (Siman 47) – the blessings said prior to reciting or learning Torah and whether that blessing is biblical or rabbinic in origin (big debate!) and whether women are required to make that blessing or not before learning Torah.Breakfast bagels and cereals are available for those who attend.
