Jewish History Uncensored

Jan 28, 2021

 In this episode we look at the Cherem of 1781. What was the prime cause of the Cherem?  Did the printing of the sefarim of R Yaacov Yosef of Polna have a significant part in causing the Cherem? Or was it due to the printing of the Besht’s Holy Letter? 

   We also look at the phenomenon of indulgences, did this ever occur in Jewish History? We also take a look at the issue of davening shacharis late from a halachic and historical perspective.
