Rabbi Dr. Jacob J. Schacter Addresses TABC Shiur

The talmidim in the Y18 honors Judaic studies class were privileged to participate in a shiur with Rabbi Dr. Jacob J. Schacter on the importance of interpersonal relationships and how they affect atonement for all aveirot on Yom Kippur. Rabbi Schacter graciously gave of his time when he heard of the new bein adam l’chaveiro initiative, which Y18 began last week under the leadership of Rabbi Wiener. Students in this class will spend two days a week studying source material b’chavruta on a variety of bein adam l’chaveiro topics including ona’at devarim, nekama, judging favorably, lo tachmod, lashon hara and many more. This will be a two year course with the goal that it will become part of the TABC Judaic studies curriculum for all classes in the near future. The talmidim are already demonstrating a heightened sensitivity toward this area of halacha after just two days of study, and the hope is that we help mold true bnei Torah who display a commitment to the Torah in its entirety.
