Machshavah Lab

Rabbi Matt Schneeweiss

My name is Rabbi Matt Schneeweiss. My goal as a Torah educator is not merely to teach my students my OWN hashkafah. Rather, my goal is to equip them with the foundations, the methodological training, and the tools which will enable them to arrive at their OWN understanding of Judaism and cultivate their OWN relationship with Hashem and His Torah. This podcast is devoted to the shiurim I give which are geared specifically towards that end. As such, the range of topics covered here will be diverse. There will be shiurim on Jewish philosophy, Chumash methodology, aggadic midrashim, maybe even some non-Jewish philosophy as well. Merriam-Webster defines "laboratory" as a place providing opportunity for experimentation, observation, or practice in a field of study. I call this podcast "Machshavah Lab" because this is where we will conduct Torah "experiments" by exploring questions, texts, and ideas in an effort to develop our machshavah in a "hands on," exploratory, firsthand manner. read less

Have any questions, insights, or feedback? Send me a text!Length: 52 minutesSynopsis: This morning (6/21/24) we had a surprise Q&A as our last shiur in yeshiva of the 2023-2024 year! We took up seven questions: (1) How do we reconcile/account for the differences in the average working hours today vs. in the time of Chazal and the Rishonim, insofar as our learning is concerned? (2) What is meant by the term "ego"? (3) What's up with the waving of the Leviim in Behaalosecha? (4) What benefit is there to a person blindly obeying halacha, and how does "gadol metzuveh ve'oseh etc." fit in? (5) What role should self-help books play alongside the self-help aspects of our Torah learning? (6) What is the key to being a good teacher? (7) How do we handle archaeological findings which seem to undermine the Torah's historicity?-----מקורות:אבות ב:המאירי - תהלים קיט:חתוספות קידושין דף לא עמוד אתוספות עבודה זרה דף ג עמוד אתלמוד בבלי שבת דף קיט עמוד אprobably more, but I'm writing this a few days later and can't rememberContent:The Limits of she'Lo LishmahAdler: On Teaching and Learning The Mabul vs. ScienceTwo Truths and a Bunch of Lies: Insights into Biblical Archaeology from a Conspiracy TheoristSome Guidelines for Thinking About Biblical History vs. Archaeology Part 1 and Part 2-----The Torah content for this week has been sponsored by Meir Areman, l'zeicher nishmas Zelda bas Ziesel, his grandmother, whose yahrzeit is on the 21st of Sivan.-----If you've gained from what you've learned here, please consider contributing to my Patreon at www.patreon.com/rabbischneeweiss.

Ralbag's Sixteen Toalos (Lessons) from Megilas Rus (The Book of Ruth)

Ralbag's Sixteen Toalos (Lessons) from Megilas Rus (The Book of Ruth)
Have any questions, insights, or feedback? Send me a text!Length: 1 hour 23 minutesSynopsis: This morning (6/7/24), in our Friday morning Machshavah Lab shiurim for women, we decided to do a sequel to our Megilas Esther shiurim from earlier this year. As is his style, the Ralbag concludes sections of his Biblical commentaries with "toalos" (a.k.a. lessons) in halacha, middos, and philosophical ideas which he gleans from the text. He concludes Megilas Esther with 16 such lessons. Since this number was far more manageable than the 51 lessons at the end of Megilas Esther, we were able to learn through them all. Not only did we get some excellent and practical ideas, but we also arrived at a better understanding of what the Ralbag is DOING in his methodology.And here's a link to the shiur I referenced: Judaism's Nuanced Attitude Towards Converts as Exemplified by Naomi.-----מקורות:רלב"ג - מגילת רות, תועלותרמב"ם - משנה תורה: ספר קדושה, הלכות איסורי ביאה יד:ב----- -----The Torah content for this week has been sponsored by Judah and Naomi Dardik in honor of Rabbi Moskowitz's second yahrzeit and in appreciation for all those whose love of Torah and excitement for ideas shines in their teaching.-----If you've gained from what you've learned here, please consider contributing to my Patreon at www.patreon.com/rabbischneeweiss.

She'eilas Shalom ba'Shem Greeting in the Name of God (Part 2)
Have any questions, insights, or feedback? Send me a text!Length: 1 hourSynopsis: This morning (6/7/24) we continued our analysis of the sugya we started on Wednesday night. After reviewing the facts and questions, we set out to define - or at least, attempt to define - the two main disagreements: (1) What was the structure of the takanah? (2) Which name of Hashem was this in reference to? I shared the various approaches that my chavrusa and I developed, and although we didn't manage to define things SUPER clearly, I think there's merit in the approaches we took. At the very least we emerged with a newfound kavanah to have in mind when we or our fellow Jew says, "Shalom aleichem!"-----מקורות:רות ב:א-דברכות פרק ט משנה הרש"י - ברכות דף נד עמוד ארמב"ם - פירוש המשניות ברכות ט:הר' יצחק שילת - ביאור לפירוש רמב"ם למשנהתלמוד בבלי מכות דף כג עמוד בריב"ן שםמאירי שםריטב"א שםתלמוד בבלי ברכות דף סג עמוד אמאירי שםריטב"א שםספר הנר שםספר הערוך - עתתורה תמימה - רות ב:ד, הערהרמב"ם - משנה תורה: ספר המדע, הלכות יסודי התורה ו:א-ברמב"ם - משנה תורה: ספר הפלאה, הלכות שבועות יב:יא----- -----The Torah content for this week has been sponsored by Judah and Naomi Dardik in honor of Rabbi Moskowitz's second yahrzeit and in appreciation for all those whose love of Torah and excitement for ideas shines in their teaching.-----If you've gained from what you've learned here, please consider contributing to my Patreon at www.patreon.com/rabbischneeweiss.

Avos 4:5 - Sforno and Rashbatz on the Permissibility of Taking Money for Torah (Part 3)
Have any questions, insights, or feedback? Send me a text!Length: 1 hour 39 minutesSynopsis: Tonight (6/6/24), in our Thursday night Pirkei Avos shiur for women, we continued our analysis of the mishnah about deriving worldly benefit from words of Torah. After a VERY brief review of the Rambam, to which Parts 1 and 2 were devoted, we examined the opposition as formulated by two Rishonim. Sforno provided a clean, straightforward argument which demonstrated a completely different framework from the Rambam's. Rashbatz, in a lengthy commentary on or mishnah and an equally lengthy responsum (neither of which we read in its entirety), seemed to address the Rambam head-on. Not only did he provide a counterargument, but he explained the sources cited by the Rambam to support his view and marshaled dozens if statements from Chazal to support his position. We ended by attempting to define this three-way machlokess, and while we didn't succeed in arriving at a clear answer, we definitely felt like we had a nice first step.-----מקורות:אבות ד:הרמב"ם - משנה תורה: ספר המדע, הלכות תלמוד תורה ג:יLenn E.

Send me a text!Length: 1 hour 6 minutesSynopsis: This evening (6/5/24), in lieu of our Wednesday night Tehilim/Tefilah shiur, we took up a halachic topic: the takanah (Rabbinic enactment) to greet one's fellow with the name of Hashem.
