Rabbinic Authority and Personal Autonomy in Early Rabbinic Law
Hosted By: Drisha
This course examines how an individual’s knowledge of their body and psyche impacts halakhah (Jewish law), a fact that demonstrates the tension between that knowledge and rabbinic expertise and authority. The various topics to be considered include a sick person eating on Yom Kippur, the law of Niddah (menstrual impurity) and the application of the mais alai claim within divorce law.
