Sometimes, students can experience a disconnect between laws in the Torah and modern times. In this class, students will examine contemporary issues in Halakha such as Kashrut, Shabbat, technology, organ donation, and more. The students will trace each topic from the Torah, and will explore how the modern poskim have addressed the issues. Students will be surprised at how many of the issues in modern times are actually addressed in early sources in Halakha.
