Halachic Man Shiur

We are pleased to announce the start of a new shiur, beginning Tuesday night October 22nd at 9:00 p.m. in Halachic Man, one of Rav Soloveitchik's most fundamental books.  Rabbi Shmuel Braun will be expounding upon this outstanding work and will not only elucidate the text itself, but will also explain the references, compare/contrast the content to other schools and streams of Jewish thought, and find practical, daily relevance from seemingly obscure philosophical passages.  Esteemed by thousands as a Torah luminary and spiritual guide, Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik remains one of the most profound thinkers the Jewish people ever boasted.  Yet precisely because of his profundity, the Rav's teachings seem abstruse to many - even to those that consider themselves his students.  Besides his texts' depth, Rabbi Soloveitchik's main works are brilliant conglomerations of sources from Talmud, Chassidus, and Jewish and Secular philosophy, which render them foreign to those unfamiliar with the above mentioned works.  For those willing to toil to learn his teachings, however, a new, radiant world awaits.
