This afternoon (2/24/21 at YBT) was our last Rambam Bekius chavurah before Purim. Seeing as how we finished the Hilchos Megilah section of Hilchos Megilah v'Chanukah last time, we decided to do a shiur on megilah from Sevaros b'Mishneh Torah le'ha'Rambam, by the Baal ha'Kuntress. Although the shiur focused on megilah, it answered a ton of questions we raised when we went through the intro to the Mishneh Torah and gave us a lot to think about. We'd like to do more of these shiurim in the future from time to time.

Bekius Disclaimer:
Note that this is a bekius chavurah - as opposed to an iyun shiur. Each session consists of us reading through the Rambam's writings together without much preparation on my part, and without going into depth by consulting commentaries or primary sources. For all these reasons, there are bound to be inaccuracies, errors, and other types of shortcomings which would not be acceptable in a prepared shiur, but are quite typical of a bekius chavurah. Please bear this in mind, and know what you're signing up for when you listen!
If you have questions, comments, or feedback, I would love to hear from you! Please feel free to contact me at rabbischneeweiss at gmail.
