Dayan Gelley features at P’eir ‘Advanced Shimmush’ Seminar for Rabbanim
P’eir’s Advanced Shimmush seminars provide training for Rabbis in subjects that they would not normally encounter in depth during their studies in Yeshivah or Kollel. Recently, our rabbanim listened to a presentation led by Dayan Menachem Gelley, senior dayan of the London Beth Din, who outlined some of the issues relating to what one may or may not ask a non-Jew (eg synagogue caretaker) to do on Shabbat.
Last week, P'eir held a Pre-Pesach seminar for rabbanim at the offices of TrainE-TraidE. The programme included a high-level shiur from Dayan Shmuel Simons of the London Beth Din and a presentation by Rabbi Yisroel Fine (Cockfosters and N Southgate Synagogue) of ideas and materials for sermons. Over twenty rabbanim who were present also heard a fascinating talk from Rabbi Jeremy Conway (Director of the US Kashrut Division) about the special arrangements for supervision that have to be implemented for the large-scale production of products suitable for use on Pesach.
