Rav Moshe Taragin Kil'ayim The gemara in Pesachim (25a) and in Chullin (116a) address the issue of kil'ayim - the biblical prohibition against planting grains and grapes together. Talmudic Methodology
Rav Moshe Taragin The Halakha of Yeihareg Ve-Al Ya'avor The preservation of life overrides almost all aveirot. When faced with a life-threatening situation, almost any aveira must be performed to preserve life, based on the principle of ve-chai ba-hem – Torah is meant to support and embrace life. The exceptions are the three cardinal aveirot of avoda zara, giluy arayot, and shefichut damim (idolatry, sexual violation, and murder). These are never overridden; they must be upheld even at the cost of life. In this shiur, we will explore the nature of these three aveirot and the principle of yeihareg ve-al ya’avor, which mandates that a Jew sacrifice his life rather than violate these commandments.
