The Halakhic Process: A (Brief) History

Hosted By: Drisha

This class sketches the historical trajectory of the primary halakhic texts and the methods and processes they followed. What texts shaped how the law developed? Why did those texts become binding or at least central? As we move into new eras, how much of an active role do the earlier texts still play?  

We will approach these questions and more in an attempt to understand both how we reached the modern moment and what this means going forward.
