Today’s shiur will be posted later today.
There will be no shiur beginning Monday August 6 through Wednesday August 15. On Thursday August 16, we will do the siyum on Zevachim (a bit late) beginning from four lines from the bottom of 120a at the section break and then we will learn that day’s daf, Menacahot 6.
Today’s shiur will be posted later today. As the content related to laws of mourning, one can learn it on Tisha B’av in the afternoon.
The following article was published this week. Click here to read. A 21st century beit midrash
In today’s daf the daughters of Tzlofchad are praised for their intelligence and for their ability to interpret texts (and their righteousness that they didn’t marry until age 40 – they waited until they found men who were worthy). They weren’t afraid to stand up before the people and demand what they thought was rightfully theirs. And as a result, they were respected and received what was rightfully theirs. The Oral Torah, with the Gemara at its center, belongs to both men and women and should be taught and interpreted by both men and women to men and women.
