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:

  2. We don’t place food under a bed. What about sleeping on a chest-freezer (in the cellar, nor air-raid shelter)?[2]
  3. Reuven travels abroad for work trip; his flight is paid for by his employer. Shimon asked him to bring a small package, for payment. Reuven brought the package. Shimon sent Reuven $500 online to his work account. The accountant now claims that the money belongs to the business, who paid for the flight. Who is right?[3]
  4. Following on from last week’s discussion about sculptures of humans: We have several (very Jewish) figurines. Are they kosher?[4]
  5. Mixing mashed eggs or tuna with mayonnaise on Shabbos – is there a permissible way to do so?[5]
  6. Does a tub of houmous qualify for Mishloach Monos?[6]
  7. Someone who didn’t fasting for health reasons; may he read the Megila?[7]
  8. The kavonos for Talis (plus Talis-Koton?) & Tefilin, when exactly do we do this, before during or after the brocho?[8]
  9. Corrected version of the two stories with the Rebbe:[9]
