Rav Moshe Taragin Shiur#08: The Nature of Nezirut Talmudic Methodology
Rav Moshe Taragin A Shevua to Suspend a Mitzva (Part 1) The gemara indicates that a shevua to violate a mitzva is invalid. Is this because shevuot do not apply to the domain of halakhic activity, or is it because the Torah's commands override the shevua? We will discuss a number of ramifications of this question. Talmudic Methodology
Rav Moshe Taragin A Shevu’a to Suspend a Mitzva (Part 2) In this shiur, we continue our discussion of a shevu'a to suspend a mitzva by analyzing situations in which such a shevu'a might apply. What does this teach us about the nature of the general disqualification? Talmudic Methodology
Rav Moshe Taragin The Prohibition of Bal Yachel The Torah describes the violation of a neder as a defilement of a halakhic declaration: “lo yachel devaro.” If the violation of a neder occurs through activity (i.e., a person prohibited an item through a neder and then actively drew benefit from the banned item), malkot are administered. Is this, then, primarily a prohibition of defiling a previous commitment, or is the violation related to benefit from an object that has become forbidden? Talmudic Methodology
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
