A Glimpse into the Techeiles Controversy
Once again, the Kollel and the community took time on the 4th of July to enjoy our national pastime- learning Torah! The seats were packed in the Bais Medrash, and the crowd got involved as chavrusas delved into the sources together. Rabbi Yakov Skolnick took it the distance with a comprehensive overview of the mitzva of wearing techeiles (blue)-dyed strings as part of the tzitzis.
Topics discussed include:
- One mitzva or two?
- The power of the techeiles
- How can we wear tzitzis today without techeiles?
- The source of true techeiles - lost or hidden?
- Has authentic techeiles been rediscovered?
- and much more!
