A 140-page Kovetz Haaros published by the Kingston Mesivta includes bochurim’s questions and commentary on Mesechta Eruvin, and a unique collection of directives from the Rebbe on city eruvin.
The large Kovetz is built upon a weekly “Lmaan Yilmedu” publication with questions and comments that bochurim have on materials they learned in yeshiva. The weekly paper, which is distributed in yeshiva and throughout the Anash community, stimulates lively discussion and Torah debate among the bochurim and other readers. In this Kovetz, those haaros have been expanded for clarity, and were supplemented with essays from the yeshiva staff and local talmidei chachomim.
This year, the Mesivta is learning Mesechta Eruvin providing much opportunity for in-depth study and a focus on practical halacha. “Although in past generations, this mesechta was considered one of the most difficult,” shares Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Shimon Hellinger, “with the development of technology, it has become very accessible through a variety of illustrations and images. In fact, its visual element makes it more tangible and alive than other mesechtos.”
An added feature of the Kovetz is fascinating content from the Rebbe on building eruvin in cities. The Kovetz begins with a letter on the halachic issues of building an eruv in Manhattan, as well as an English letter about the influence of Lubavitch and its approach to eruvin in cities. At the end of the Kovetz, there is a comprehensive collection of the Rebbe’s instructions and answers about eruvin in cities around the world. Some of these responses are published here for the first time, while other responses have gained added details.
