Rambam Bekius
Rambam vs. Aruch ha'Shulchan on Shnayim Mikra (Part 1)
Show Notes

This afternoon (6/14/22), in our Rambam Bekius chavurah, we decided to do a follow-up to yesterday's shiur: a sort of "demo" of the difference between the Rambam's and the Aruch ha'Shulchan's halachic treatment of the same topic. I chose the topic of Shnayim Mikra because of its size, given the fact that we only have three days of shiur before we break for the summer. My intention is to highlight the extreme differences between the Rambam and the Aruch ha'Shulchan, both didactically and legalistically. I'm making an effort to point out these differences as we proceed through the siman.

This week's Torah content has been sponsored by Rachayl, who says: "in honor of the end of school, I want to say thank you for making my commutes a time for learning and thinking," to which I say: "Thank YOU, Rachayl, for listening!"
Bekius Disclaimer:
Note that this is a bekius chavurah - as opposed to an iyun shiur. Each session consists of us reading through the Rambam's writings together without much preparation on my part, and without going into depth by consulting commentaries or primary sources. For all these reasons, there are bound to be inaccuracies, errors, and other types of shortcomings which would not be acceptable in a prepared shiur, but are quite typical of a bekius chavurah.
