Is Shlissel Challah following Darkei Emori? Can we perform segulos if they are not scientifically proven? Two Ten Minute Halacha podcasts from YUTorah® Online discuss these issues. This program is made possible by the generosity of Marcos and Adina Katz and is coordinated by Yeshiva University’s Center for the Jewish Future.
Rabbi Aryeh Lebowitz
“Torah and Mitzvos is the segulah for everything,” says Rabbi Aryeh Lebowitz, Rav of Beis Haknesses of North Woodmere. In this podcast from YU Torah, Rabbi Lebowitz examines the origins of Shlissel Challah and weighs in on whether this widespread minhag is being done for the right reasons.
Rabbi Aaron Selevan
Rabbi Selevan has Yoreh Yoreh and Yadin Yadin from Yeshivat Rabbeinu Yitzchak Elchanan (YU). He is a rabbi in Hamilton and Toronto, Ontario. Here is his podcast on the custom of Shlissel Challah.
