שיעורי טקסט Rav Moshe Taragin Defining the Prohibition of Bal Te'achar Part 2 In a previous shiur, we introduced the basic question surrounding the issur of bal te'achar, the prohibition of delaying korbanot and hekdesh-related obligations. Is the issur defined as delaying obligations (possibly initiated through verbal declaration, or possibly autonomous obligations)? Or does the prohibition consist of withholding monies belonging to hekdesh or hekdesh-like accounts? Several cases in which the latter possibility was not relevant were considered for possible bal te'acharapplication. In this shiur, we will explore additional issues of bal te'achar that may stem from this fundamental question.
