JET's 2022 Yarchei Kallah: Weeklong Extravaganza line up includes Rabbi Gavriel Rudin and Rabbi Aryeh Kravetz as they go into the details of Redeeming Captives and the Laws of War...

This weeklong series will look at Jewish law and the legitimacy and conduct of war as well as the harrowing circumstances of captives kidnapped and held for ransom by slave traders or enemy forces. Tragically these discussions remain only too relevant today. Join Rabbi Aryeh Kravetz and Gavriel Rudin as they explore the related Torah sources and modern-day applications.

The JET Yarchei Kallah is modeled after the description of the Yarchei Kallah in the Talmud. In the two months of the year (Elul and Adar) when agricultural activity was less demanding, Jews would take the opportunity to return to the study halls to reinvigorate their Torah knowledge, thus strengthening their ties to Judaism. The word Kallah means assembly; Yarchei means month; hence the term refers to those months when they would assemble to study Torah.
