Description

Lecture given on a bus. Rabbi Schachter discusses the Ritva(Rabenu Yom Tov ben Avraham) from Seville. He was a student of the Ra'ah and Rabenu Pinchas(older brother of the Ra'ah), both of whom were students of the Ramban. He wrote Sefer Zekaron, to defend the Rambam's Moreh Nevuchim, from the attacks of the Ramban. A major posek: By a chupa, one needs to appoint witnesses, to the exclusion of others. When selling chametz to a gentile, a kinyan sudar does not work. Bein Hashmoshos has elements of day and night, and is not simply a period where we do not know if it is day or night. A torah missing one letter may still be kosher. A converted baby needs to accept mitzvos at age 13.He married the widow of the Migdal Oz. Writing Kichsavan in tora
