The student asked and answered questions. Nice to have this opportunity to expose the students to a master educator and content that is highly relevant.”

Going forward, I envision this session more of an introduction to our halachic curriculum rather than a wrap up. It frames the halachic issues and sets the stage for the different ways of dealing with them.”
