Show Notes

This afternoon (5/4/22), in our Rambam Bekius chavurah (Ra'avyah bekius chavurah?), we began by reviewing what we covered yesterday (Why, according to the Rambam, don't we say shehecheyanu on sefiras ha'omer?), and read Encyclopedia Talmudit's summaries of several other answers. We then began working on our other question: Why, according to the Rambam, is there a hava amina that failing to say the birkas ha'mitzvah on sefiras ha'omer is me'akev? We started learning through a piece in Hararei Kedem on the topic, which started off with the psak of the Shulchan Aruch based on the Ra'avyah. We didn't actually get as far as the Rambam, but we had a lot of fun thinking about the sugya. What we did today will be foundation of the Rav's explanation of the Rambam tomorrow.
