Rav Moshe Taragin The Letters of Tefillin The gemara in Shabbat (62a) discusses the violation of carrying tefillin into a bathhouse. Talmudic Methodology
Rav Moshe Taragin Defining the Melakha of Zorei’a In this shiur, we will explore the nature of the melakha of zorei'a. Is this melakha defined as placing a seed in the ground so that it will eventually take root, or is it defined as placing a seed in an environment in which it is in contract with nutrients? This question may have a number of halachic ramifications. Talmudic Methodology
Rav Moshe Taragin Ein Bishul Achar Bishul: Re-Cooking on Shabbat Two gemarot in Massekhet Shabbat (39a and 145b) assert that once an item has been cooked prior to Shabbat, it can be re-cooked on Shabbat without violating the prohibition of bishul, based on the principle of “ein bishul achar bishul.” In this shiur, we will explore this exception and the manner in which this rule reflects the nature of the bishul prohibition. Talmudic Methodology
Rav Moshe Taragin The Prohibition of Bishul in Cases of Limited Change Is bishul prohibited because of the improvement it imparts, or is the process itself prohibited, independent of any improvement? In this shiur, we will explore potential test cases in which a cooking process has definitely occurred but typical improvement has not taken place. Talmudic Methodology
Rav Moshe Taragin Different Types of Bishul In a previous shiur, we explored the nature of the melakha of bishul. Is it defined as the processing of food to improve it? Or should it be viewed as a more formal cooking process, independent of the improvement it imparts? Based on this distinction, we will address various forms of cooking and probe the degree to which they are integrated into the standard issur of bishul. Talmudic Methodology
Rav Moshe Taragin Me’amer – The Melakha of Bundling In this shiur, we will discuss the definition of the melakha of me'amer. Is it defined simply as gathering together items that grew, or is some transformation necessary in order to violate the melakha? Talmudic Methodology
Rav Moshe Taragin Cooking with Fire and with Heat The gemara in Shabbat describes several methods of cooking food with different levels of exposure to fire. These cases include cooking with derivatives of the fire (tolodot), cooking with natural heat (chama), and employing utensils that did not have direct exposure to the fire (kli sheni). In this shiur, we will explore the nature of these variations of bishul. Talmudic Methodology
Rav Moshe Taragin Dash - part 1 The melakha of dash involves the separation of produce from the shells and sheaths within which they grow. In this shiur, we will explore the basic definition of this melakha. Is it essentially an act of separation, like borer, or is it defined as the act of revealing concealed items? We will discuss a number of ramifications of this question. Talmudic Methodology
Rav Moshe Taragin Dash – Part 2 In this shiur, we continue our discussion of the melakha of dash and consider the stipulation that the subject of the melakha must be "gidulei karka," something that grows from the ground. This requirement may help us redefine the melakha as the last stage in the processing of produce for human consumption, and we will discuss a number of ramifications of this redefinition.
