Rabbi Yuter’s Halakhic Process series returns with a shifting focus towards “critical terms” in the Jewish legal discourse. Today’s class begins a conversation over the meaning of “masorah” or “tradition” and the consequences of historical revisionism. This class used excerpts from “Facing the Truths of History” by Rabbi J. J. Schacther, but it is worthwhile reading the article in its entirety. Courtesy of YUTorah, the full text is embedded below.
