Is it an extension of the general exemption of mitzta'er, or is it an independent exemption based on the fact that rain undermines the very identity of the sukka?
שיעורי טקסט Rav Moshe Taragin The Definition of Bal Te'achar The Torah places a time limit on the offering of pledged korbanot. If a person delays too long, he violates the prohibition of "lo ye'achar" (he should not delay), otherwise known as bal te'achar. There is much debate among the Tanna'im regarding the duration of the bal te'achar violation, but it is generally marked by the passage of one or a number of chagim. In this shiur, we will explore the nature of the prohibition.

שיעורי טקסט Rav Moshe Taragin Who is Obligated in the Mitzva of Chinukh? Although a katan is exempt from mitzvot, the Rabbanan instituted a mitzva to train him in mitzva performance, the mitzva of chinukh. Did the Chakhamim obligate the minor DIRECTLY, so that the father merely facilitates his son's obligation? Or did the Chakhamim impose the mitzva upon the father, perhaps as a component of the father's own mitzva fulfillment? In this shiur, we will consider a number of nafka minot of this question.
