Opportunity to learn about & witness Shechita

vallevin | Jun 21, 201105:44 PM     1

From the yahoo group, Teaneckshuls, (the OP) wrote that it was fine to cross post. I am personally very interested.

With the Daf Yomi schedule about to begin Masechet Chullin, where we'll learn all about shechita, I am working on organizing a special shiur (or more than one, if necessary) on shechita, together with the maggid shiur doing an actual shechita (on a cow or sheep or goat) and explaining step by step what he is doing throughout the shechita, deveining, taking off the required fat and other parts, etc. It would likely be an hour and a half process or so and would be relative local (Paterson probably). It would be unique and very interesting to see the shechita happening in front of us and learning the halachot while it is happening. My plan is to have the shiur sponsored by Emunah of America and use the proceeds of admission to raise money for the children of Emunah.

Before I plan the date(s) for the shiur or shiurim, I am trying to gauge interest, first among the members of the various Daf Yomi groups locally and then more broadly. I would ask people who are interested to send me an email indicating their likely interest. Also, could those in charge of, or who organize, the various Daf Yomi chaburas in the different shuls please discuss with the guys in their chabura and let me know the interest.

Thanks
