On Wednesday, December 18, MTA’s Senior Yeshiva Fellowship Cohort and their Mashgiach, Rabbi Mendelson, visited the Beth Din of America, where they heard from active member Rabbi Shlomo Weissman. Rabbi Weissman explained everything the Beth Din of America does, including the three types of cases they hear: matrimonial, monetary, and proof of ancestry.

Learning was brought to life for the talmidim on this incredible educational experience, as they saw all of the tools that the Beth Din uses, including a real chalitzah shoe. The talmidim and Rabbi Mendelson ended the trip with an enjoyable lunch at Mr. Broadway.
