שיעורי טקסט Rav Moshe Taragin Defining the Prohibition of a Shevu’a Le-Haba (Part 2) In this shiur, we continue our discussion of the nature of a shevu'a l-haba. Is this type of shevu’a structurally similar to a pastshevu’a, a shevu’a le-she'avar, in which the issur entailed is that of taking a false oath? Or does a future shevu’a remap certain neutral actions as being forbidden or obligatory, such that failure to fulfill the shevu’a is an active violation? We will consider a number of sources to help resolve this question.
