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. In Parshas Mikeitz (42:20) we read how Yosef instructs his brothers to bring Binyomin to Egypt, “and they did so”. What did the brothers do right then? [1]
  2. When wrapping ourselves in the Tallis we say several pesukim. Shouldn’t we wait שיעור הילוך ד’ אמות before reciting those verses, to avoid a hefsek? [2]
  3. When toivelling a coffee-maker, is it sufficient to immerse the jug & the filter? [3]
  4. Does the Baal-Korei have a share in the spiritual benefit of the people who are called up to the Torah? [4]
  5. Is there an issue with oversized Hand-Tefilin? [5]
  6. May instant oat-cereal be prepared on Shabbos in a kli shlishi? [6]
  7. May one wear a Hearing-Aid on Shabbos? [7]
  8. In error, I recited the passages of וידבר, והיה כי יביאך whilst I was still in Rashi’s Tefillin. Do I need to repeat those passages in Rabbenu Tam’s Tefilin? [8]
  9. A Nitel question: May one deliver a Shiur via Zoom to a country where Nitel doesn’t apply?
  10. Attending a Simcha when one has Yohrzeit: [9]
  11. ומקדישים ומעריצים or ומעריצים ומקדישים:
