Watch: Panorama of Halacha feature: A weekly shiur by Dayan Levi Yitzchok Raskin, Rov of Anash in London, explores interesting Torah questions and halachic dilemmas.

The following issues are discussed by Rabbi Raskin in this week’s episode:

  1. Near the end of the Selichos we have paragraphs quoting Moshiach (Dovid), Daniel, Ezra. Nusach Lita has also a quote from Micha. This appears in our YK Machzor, but not in our Selichos. Please clarify: [1]
  2. In היום תאמצנו, why does היום תשמע שועתנו appear before היום תקבל ברחמים..?
  3. May one use a French Press cafetiere on Yomtov? [2]
  4. One Davening the Shmone Esrei in tandem with the Chazan may recite the full Kedusha. What about Birkas Kohanim? [3]
  5. When honoured to take out the Sefer Torah from the Oron Kodesh, may one place his Sidur inside the Oron Kodesh? [4]
  6. One who needs to recite the brocho of HaGomel, may he do so between Maftir and Haftorah? [5]
  7. May a badge or brooch be affixed to a garment on Shabbos or Yomtov? [6]
  8. Keren haShviis or Agudas haShmita: is there any difference?
  9. Feedback on המה כשלו ונפלו I[7]
  10. Some guidance about כיסוי הדם: loose dirt; דם הנפש דוקא כיסה חלק מן הדם;
