Dirshu Pre-Pesach International Shiurim

pre-Pesach shiurim in the United States, Eretz Yisrael and Europe are part of Dirshu’s Daf HaYomi B’Halacha’s program, bringing awareness of halacha into the daily lives of all Jews. Rav Aharon Gobioff, Dirshu’s American Director said, “Dirshu is providing timely shiurim in advance of Pesach on hilchos Pesach to enhance the halachic observance and the geshmak, the enjoyment of Yom Tov that comes with knowledge of the pertinent halachos.”

Shiurim are being given by such halachic luminaries as HaGaon HaRav Reuven Feinstein, Rosh Yeshiva of the Yeshiva of Staten Island, HaGaon HaRav Yechiel Michel Steinmetz, Skverer Dayan of Boro Park and HaGaon HaRav Zev Smith, Daf HaYomi B’Halacha’s Maggid shiur and Maggid Shiur for Irgun Shiurei Torah.

In Eretz Yisrael HaGaon HaRav Shmuel Yaakov Borenstein, Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva Kiryas Melech, HaGaon HaRav Moshe Shaul Klein of Bnei Brak, a talmid muvhak of HaGaon HaRav Shmuel Wosner, and senior member of his Bais Din, HaGaon Harav Chaim Tzvi Shapira, Rosh Yeshiva of the Belzer Yeshiva in Tel Aviv and Dayan of the Belzer Community in Bnei Brak.

HaGaon Harav Yechiel Michel Steinmetz, Shlita, Answers Fascinating Contemporary Shailos

At Bais Hamedrash Birkas Avrohom on 50th Street in Boro Park, the shiur will be given by the Skverer Dayan, Rav Yechiel Michel Steinmetz. Rav Steinmetz always attracts a tremendous following. His wide-ranging depth and knowledge of the entire corpus of halacha combined with his ability to break down the most complex she’eilos into easy-to-understand, practical halacha, is legendary. This year Rav Steinmetz will intertwine many of the common halachos of Pesach with various riveting new contemporary halachic scenarios.

In Lakewood, home to one of the largest, most popular Daf HaYomi B’Halacha daily shiurim, the pre-Pesach shiur will be given at Beth Medrash Govoha’s Ateres Bracha Beis Medrash by Rav Zev Smith. Rav Smith’s shiur, which always attracts a huge following, discusses areas of halacha that are very pertinent but often not discussed as frequently in the run up to Pesach. For example, is electronic writing permitted on Chol Hamoed? May one write on a computer, an ATM machine, take pictures with a digital camera on Chol Hamoed? What about using hot tap water on Yom Tov? Can you buy chometz from a store or company that sold their chometz but continued to sell chometz on Pesach?

In Eretz Yisrael, shiurim are being held across the country. Rav Shmuel Yaakov Borenstein, Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva Kiryas Melech. Rav Borenstein’s shiur at Beis Medrash Maasas Mordechai in Beit Shemesh  features both contemporary halacha and lomdus on Pesach.

In Ashdod, Rav Moshe Shaul Klein, will outline hundreds of practical halachos that rabbanim rule upon before Pesach along with numerous, unpublished piskei halacha on Pesach from Rav Shmuel Wosner. In Bnei Brak, HaGaon HaRav Yitzchok Mordechai Rubin, will be deliver his shiur at the Beis Medrash of HaGaon Harav Yitzchok Zilberstein, in Ramat Elchanan.

There will be shiurim in Haifa from the Belzer Dayan and Rosh Yeshiva, Rav Chaim Tzvi Shapira and in Beitar by HaGaon HaRav Shmuel Eliezer Stern.
