    1. Title: tiqun
      Author: Dovid Rubin ,

      I thank the esteemed Rabbi for his most interesting and well-delivered lecture.

      While Rabbi Dr. Shnayer Leiman accurately described the minhag of giving tiqqun on a yahrzeit, he omitted to mention that it is also the custom that the person providing the tiqqun - if it is in memory of his parents - does not partake of the tiqqun. Thus, this minhag in no way contradicts the custom to fast on a yahrzeit.

      I further believe that the minhag to travel to Meron around the period of Lag BoOmer is mentioned by R. Ovadiah Bartenuroh of the 15th century.

    3. Title: Handouts
      Author: Avrohom Dubin ,

      Can I get a PDF copy of the handout used in this Shiur. Dr. Leiman quotes extensively from the handout. Thank you.
