Rabbi Willig Answers Rabbinic Questions

Rabbi Mordechai Willig, Mara D’Atra Young Israel of Riverdale, Rosh Yeshiva at RIETS, S’gan Av Beth Din of Beth Din of America, and member of the Young Israel Vaad Halacha, conducts a biweekly conference call with our rabbanim to answer shailos they are encountering in the field. 

Rabbanim ask practical halacha and hashkafa questions from all four chelkei Shulchan Aruch and beyond. In general, the calls take place every other Wednesday from 3:00-4:00 p.m. Eastern Time. 

Rabbis who would like to participate and/or submit a shaila should email Rabbi Binymain Hammer via email by Monday the week of the call. The day before the call, the topics to be addressed are e-mailed to all Young Israel Rabbis and others who have asked to participate. Rabbi Willig prepares answers assiduously. You don’t have to ask questions to participate.

Links to recordings of previous calls are available by emailing Rabbi Hammer

  

Rabbi Mordechai Willig, Mara D’Atra Young Israel of Riverdale, Rosh Yeshiva at REITS, S’gan Av Beth Din of Beth Din of America, and member of the Young Israel Vaad Halacha, has graciously agreed to conduct a weekly conference call with our rabbanim to answer shailos they are encountering in the field. 
 
You will be invited, each week, to submit shailos to me via email, and I will forward them to Rabbi Willig. The day before the call, the topic to be addressed will be e-mailed to all Young Israel Rabbis. You don’t have to ask questions to participate.
 
The calls will take place on Wednesdays from 3:00-4:00 p.m. Eastern. Participants will be able to ask follow-up questions during the call. To maximize our time together, I will mute anyone with background noise.
 
Our First conference call will take place on Wednesday December 18, 2013 at 3:00 p.m. The call will last no more than one hour. Please forward your shailos by e-mail to: rabbis@youngisrael.org We will send you an email confirmation that your shailah was received.
 
Thank you to Rabbi Yehoshua Wender of the Young Israel of Houston for sharing this idea with us, and to the person he directed us to – Rabbi Yaakov Robinson of the Agudah of the Midwest – who has successfully implemented a similar weekly call. We have shared the idea with the RCA as well.
 
May our rabbinic organizations continue to learn from each other and work together, L’hagdil Torah V’yadera.
