Be'er Hagolah 001 - Introduction
by Hauer, Rabbi Moshe
This classic work of the Maharal explains methodically and profoundly the approach to understanding the methodology and the teachings of Chazal throughout the Talmud and Midrash. In the introduction to this series, we learn about the wisdom of Chazal in contrast to the declining level of the generations. We also learn about how to understand and relate to the words of Chazal.
Be'er Hagolah 002 - Asmachta (Torah Basis for Rabbinic Legislation)
by Hauer, Rabbi Moshe
We continue our studies in the Be'er Hagolah, the Maharal's classic work explaining the approach to understanding the methodology and the teachings of Chazal. We learn about when Chazal seems to add to or take away from the Torah, exploring the idea of Asmachta. The chachamim are not pulling things out of thin air; rather, they are building legislation based on what is found in the Torah.
Be'er Hagolah 003 - Protective Layers; Safeguarding the Torah
by Hauer, Rabbi Moshe
We continue our studies in the Be'er Hagolah, the Maharal's classic work explaining the approach to understanding the methodology and the teachings of Chazal. We learn about the fences and safeguards that Chazal establish around the mitzvos of the Torah. The fences are like protective structures for the limbs that are the mitzvos, enabling them to stay safe and whole. The Maharal explains why this does not fall under the prohibition of bal tosif, not adding to the Torah.
Be'er Hagolah 004 - Rabbinic Creations
by Hauer, Rabbi Moshe
We continue our studies in the Be’er Hagolah, the Maharal’s classic work explaining the approach to understanding the methodology and the teachings of Chazal. We learn about the new mitzvos that Chazal established, such as Chanukah and Purim. These are additional mitzvos that complete the picture of making a person complete. The power to create was specifically given to our Sages, and they are able to create mitzvos that are in line with the Torah.
