    1. Title: tiqun
      Author: Dovid Rubin ,

      I thank the esteemed Rabbi for his most interesting and well-delivered lecture.

      While Rabbi Dr. Shnayer Leiman accurately described the minhag of giving tiqqun on a yahrzeit, he omitted to mention that it is also the custom that the person providing the tiqqun - if it is in memory of his parents - does not partake of the tiqqun. Thus, this minhag in no way contradicts the custom to fast on a yahrzeit.

      I further believe that the minhag to travel to Meron around the period of Lag BoOmer is mentioned by R. Ovadiah Bartenuroh of the 15th century.

      Did anyone ever track down the PDF handouts?

    3. Title: Handouts
      Author: Avrohom Dubin ,

      Can I get a PDF copy of the handout used in this Shiur. Dr. Leiman quotes extensively from the handout. Thank you.
