|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.||Talmudic Methodology|
