Rav Moshe Taragin Possessing Hazardous Items Talmudic Methodology
Rav Moshe Taragin The Prohibition Against Possessing Hazardous Items The halakha prohibits one from keeping dangerous items in his home. Is this essentially a measure to ensure the rights of potential victims, or is it an independent rule that is unrelated to victims' rights? Talmudic Methodology

Rav Moshe Taragin Can a Kal ve-Chomer be Employed to Administer Monetary Compensation Talmudic Methodology
Rav Moshe Taragin The 50% Payment of a Tam Animal R. Huna classifies the payment for the keren damage caused by a seemingly harmless animal (tam) as a kenas, and therefore only half the damage is compensated. The simplest way to explain this view is that R. Huna maintains that fundamentally, no compensation is required, since most domesticated animals are presumed to be harmless; the fine of half-payment is levied to deter future incidents. In this shiur, we will evaluate if this explanation accounts for the halakha and suggest an alternate approach. Talmudic Methodology

Rav Moshe Taragin Understanding the Category of Regel In this shiur, we will discuss the regel category of damages. Is regel simply a form of shein, defined as damages caused without aggressive intention, but also without the intent of pleasure seeking? Or is regel an independent category, defined as damages caused in the course of an animal's walking, such that no real action was performed on the part of the animal? We will discuss a number of ramifications of this question. Talmudic Methodology
Rav Moshe Taragin Torah Study vs. Mitzva Performance Judaism is unique in assigning Torah study the central role within religious experience. Talmudic Methodology
Rav Moshe Taragin Defining the Parameters of Tzerorot Damage The gemara distinguishes between regel damages and tzerarot damages, indirect damage that is liable only for half-payment. What is the logical difference between the two? Does classic regel only obtain in situations of direct contact with the animal’s body (or its appendages), while damages caused by direct acts without physical contact is classified as tzerorot? Or is all action-based damage classified as regel, while the hurtling of projectiles is not considered the act of the animal and is thus defined as tzerorot? Talmudic Methodology
