Food for Thought Kiddush-Time Shiur

Date: 

July 30, 2016 - 12:00pm

Location: 

Solomon Schechter School of Manhattan, at 805 Columbus Ave at 100th

Join us for a shiur during the end of kiddush. Jeremy Tabick will teach about the idea of "muktzeh" - objects which are forbidden to touch on Shabbat. Is it a secondary fence around the "real" laws of melakhah (forbidden labor), or is it an essential way to observe a Shabbat that is object-oriented and not action-oriented? This brief shiur will overlap the end of kiddush, so there'll be plenty of time to nosh, chat, learn, and still make it to lunch on time.

Food for Thought Kiddush-Time Shiur

Date:

Location: 

Solomon Schechter School of Manhattan, at 805 Columbus Ave at 100th

Join us for a shiur taught by Tim Bernard during the end of kiddush. Judaism’s primary prayer is more often referred to by how you arrange your body to recite it, than by anything to do with its words. This class will investigate the body languages of the Amidah -- standing, stepping, bending, jumping and swaying. This brief shiur will overlap the end of kiddush, so there'll be plenty of time to nosh, chat, learn, and still make it to lunch on time.

Join us for a brief shiur during the end of kiddush. Philip Gibbs will teach. Do you (or anyone you know) ever have that awkward moment when you really have to go to the bathroom but don't know what to do with your tzitzit? Does that make you wonder why we are so careful to not bring a tallit in the bathroom, but wear a tallit katan without abandon? This brief shiur will overlap the end of kiddush, so there’ll be plenty of time to nosh, chat, learn, and still make it to lunch on time.

Join us for a brief shiur during the end of kiddush. Rabbi Ashira Konigsburg will teach. This year, the Conservative Movement's CJLS recently approved two teshuvot allowing Ashkenazim in the US to eat kitniyot (legumes) on Pesach. We'll take a look at the justifications for these decisions and discuss some practical implications of this controversial ruling. All in under 20 minutes! This brief shiur will overlap the end of kiddush, so there’ll be plenty of time to nosh, chat, learn, and still make it to lunch on time.

Join us for a brief shiur during the end of kiddush. Jeremy Tabick will teach. By looking at the origins of the prohibition on carrying on shabbat (hotza'ah) and its solution (eruv), we will attempt to understand broadly this fascinating area of Jewish law. This brief shiur will overlap the end of kiddush, so there’ll be plenty of time to nosh, chat, learn, and still make it to lunch on time.
