Shabbat Scenarios taught by Rabbi Shimon Isaacson is geared to those wanting to learn or review the basic fundamentals of Jewish observance. Each class is a 15 minute explanation including any appropriate demonstration of a specific basic law of Shabbat. Beginners find this class easier to follow then Naaleh’s more in-depth Hilchot Shabbat class. The class follows the dialogue between Rabbi Isaacson and his friend Dr. Edo Lavi, who explore practical Hilchot Shabbat scenarios together.
Here are some examples of various Shabbat observances discussed in previous classes:
– Koshair (tying knots) classes show how to tie shoelaces on Shabbat, what to do about tying garbage bags, and addressed questions regarding women’s head coverings, to name a few.
