1) Listen to this morning's class, "2 Approaches to Pesak Halakhah (2)," here. Follow along with the source sheets here.

2) Listen to our first class on this topic here. Follow along with its source sheets here, and see the related devar Torah for last year's Parashat Kedoshim here.

3) As we mentioned, the core concept of the class was drawn from Haym Soloveitchik's classic essay, "Rupture and Reconstruction." Read it here

4) Many of the specific sources of this class were drawn from Levi Cooper's "המנהג בערוך השלחן והמנהג במשנה ברורה," in The Paths of Daniela recently-published festschrift for R. Dr. Daniel Sperber . Read the relevant pages here.

5) Read the relevant chapter from R. Eitam Henkin hy"d's posthumous book תערוך לפני שלחן, which compares Arukh HaShulhan and Mishnah Berurah, here.
