London Dayan Discusses Common Traveler’s Dilemmas

In a recent shiur at Kollel Anash of Crown Heights, Harav Levi Yitzchok Raskin of London, England, discussed many halachos associated with traveling and taking trips.

Recently Kollel Anash of Crown Heights had the honor of hosting a shiur by Rabbi Levi Yitzchok Raskin of London, England on the halachos associated with traveling and taking trips. Rabbi Raskin serves as Rov and Dayan of Lubavitch in London. He is also the author of numerous halachah seforim.

The shiur covered many common shaalos that arise on this topic. At what point should one say Tefillas Haderech? Does one need to stand while reciting it? How does one calculate Techum Shabbos? Can one board a plane in which later during the flight it will become Shabbos in the place of his departure? How should one wash Netilas Yadayim without running water? How should one use a Shabbos key?

For the past ten years, Kollel Anash has been dedicated to assisting young married men master the laws of Taharas Hamishpachah and Shabbos. The halachos are studied in depth; from the sources in Gemara and Rishonim all the way down to halacha lemaaseh. The Kollel has recently added a unique three-year track for studying the halachos of Choshen Mishpat.

Kollel Anash is located at Congregation Anash 770 Montgomery Street and is under the leadership of Rabbi Michoel Lerner. The Kollel was founded and is sponsored by Rabbi Dovid Fischer, Rov of Congregation Anash.
