Practical Halacha Series: Laws of Yom Tov

Please join us from the comfort of your home for six informative evenings on Mondays, January 23, 30, February 6. 13, 20 and March 13 at 8:30 p.m. on Zoom: Rabbi Miodownik will present a Practical Halacha Series: Laws of Yom Tov. The laws of Yom Tov differ from Shabbat in some significant ways. In this series we will explore the laws of Yom Tov as they apply to food preparation and handling fire, and conclude with the principles of Chol Hamoed. This series is sponsored in memory of Joel Cohen z"l.
