Rabbi Yosef Zvi Rimon: What Happens to Jewish Law During War?

We talk to esteemed Israeli posek Rabbi Yosef Zvi Rimon about how, in the darkest of times, like wartime, we need halacha’s guiding light to move us forward and maybe find redemption.

Listen here: 

In this episode of the 18Forty Podcast, we talk to Rabbi Yosef Zvi Rimon, the esteemed Israeli posek, about the role of halacha during war. Additionally, we are joined by Rabbi Shmuel Ismach, a rebbe at Yeshiva University and a rabbi at Young Israel of Great Neck.

Amid the darkest and most chaotic times, we require the guidance of halacha even more than usual. And we see from Rabbi Rimon that halacha is not just a set of laws, but also the poetry that enables us to move forward. In this episode we discuss:
What kinds of halachic questions does a rabbi need to answer when a war breaks out?
Should a soldier donate a kidney during a war? Can a couple get married when people are dying? Should we really believe that God is with us when we’re being attacked?
What kinds of questions does Rabbi Yosef Zvi Rimon ask to the soldiers?
Tune in to hear a conversation about the redemption we can find even when it seems out of reach.
