Rabbi Yehoshua Lewis is the founder of Mesorah NJ, an outreach network in New Jersey, reaching out, inspiring and educating university students and young professionals. Chapters have been established in Highland Park, Morristown, and Hoboken/Jersey City.
We asked Rabbi Lewis which gemara sugiyas he enjoys to teaching to newcomers.
He has shared with us the four sugiyas linked below, including relevant cases, that mostly address dinei mamonos that also feature ethical and practical ramifications:
Bava Metziah 80b, 81a, 93a
Bava Metziah 101a, Bava Kamma 58a
Chullin 93b, Chullin 94a, Chullin 94b
Bava Metzia 44a – Mishnah, Bava Metzia 49a – Gemara
We encourage you to download these prepared source-sheets so that you can study them with your students and congregants.
