Taking a Deeper Dive: The Sephardic & Ashkenazic Berakhot Dilemma Rooted in Mikvah Immersion

Ilana Gadish, Yoetzet Halakha

Monday, March 20, 7:00PM

 

Together we will explore the halachic origins of the great debate on when to make blessings-- before or after mitzvoth. This dilemma originates in the blessing for mikvah immersion, and we will see how the divergence of customs developed-- one that remains even in the modern era.
