THE SOUTH HAMPSTEAD COURSE
Between November 2010 and July 2011, I taught a class on Contemporary Halacha in South Hampstead Synagogue.
In this course I addressed issues such as relations with non-Orthodox Jewish denominations, the status of women and controversial medical advances (for the course outline, click here).
