Yom Kippur Observances: Measuring the ‘Half’, Lesson 1

This class explores the principles of ‘chatzi-shiur’ (half measure)—namely, the halachic status of prohibitions performed with less than the quantity proscribed by Torah law. A fascinating debate originating from the Talmudic discussion on Yom Kippur. We’ll also analyze the difference between ‘Assur’ (prohibited) and ‘Chayav’ (liable).
