שיעורי טקסט Rav Moshe Taragin Defining the Prohibition of Kotev – Writing (Part 1) The mishna lists writing (kotev) as one of the prohibited melakhot of Shabbat.

However, several indicators suggest that the melakha is defined as the communication through text.
שיעורי טקסט Rav Moshe Taragin Meita machmat melakha: Exempting the shoel from work related accidents A sho'el, someone who borrows an item for use, usually bears full liability for damages incurred to the item, regardless of his degree of negligence. The only scenario in which the sho'el is excused from payment is one in which the item is damaged as a result of the utility for which it was designated, meita machmat melakha. In this shiur, we will study the debate among the Rishonim regarding how to reconcile this exemption with the overarching nature of a sho'el's liability.
שיעורי טקסט Rav Moshe Taragin Shiur #08: Unilateral Seizure of Disputed Funds One of the classical principles of halakhic legal decisions is ha-motzi mei-chaveiro alav ha-ra'aya - possession is awarded to the current possessor in absence of evidence to the contrary. The gemara discusses the case of tefisa, in which the plaintiff seizes the item in question, and concludes that does not usually achieve ownership for the plaintiff. In order to understand why tefisa does not ordinarily work and why it does under certain circumstances, we must study the underlying reason for the principle of ha-motzi mei-chaveiro alav ha-ra’aya.
