• You’ve always known that a K’zayith had to be the size of an olive. You’ve always wondered how things could possibly have become so confused.

• Find out how this Halakha became distorted in the European Galuth.

• If you believe that the Torah is rational; if you understand that Halakha cannot be divorced from reality; if you feel that many Jews cannot relate to a Torah that just doesn’t make sense…

• …then please donate to Machon Shilo via the Pay pal button on the homepage of Machon Shilo to cover the costs of this ground-breaking event.
