The Perfectly Sweet Mixture of Torah Based Life

Today, boruch Hashem, I made a siyum on Maseches Eiruvin. There are countless halochos in this particular masechta, primarily having to do with eruvin, which for those unfamiliar are various legal devices to allow certain things like carrying outside on Shabbos, cooking for Shabbos on a holiday, and walking beyond 2000 amos (cubits) in oneContinue reading “The Perfectly Sweet Mixture of Torah Based Life”

Truth of Techeiles Creature: Murex Snail

In the Gemara in Maseches Sanhedrin, daf 91a there’s a very interesting thing we can learn about the sugya of techeiles.

There are examples there given of theContinue reading “The Torah Forgotten from the Jewish People”
