Based on the book, -a Halachik masterpiece- titled (in Hebrew): Birchas Hanehenin, and authored by Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi sometime during the years 1771-1812. The volume deals specifically with the blessings that are recited over foodstuffs (such as wine, bread and fruit), Fragrances (such as the scent of a rose), thanksgiving (such as the birth of a child), and praise (that one would recite on recovering from a serious illness).
Classes will be text base and will begin with the foundation of blessings from their original sources.
Beginning with the order of preceding blessings such as which preceding blessing exempts which other? When may and should, one exempt one blessing with another? Conditions under which the exemption takes place. The order of concluding blessings (grace after meals or Bentching), Exemptions in case of doubt, Exemptions though wine an-d bread, “Normal” breads vs. “other” breads and their respective blessings, When the principle and secondary food items are mixed together (e.g. crackers/bread & cream cheese, jelly doughnuts (chanukah) and much more.

ABOUT THE FILM PAPER CLIPS.
Whitwell Middle School in rural Tennessee is the setting for this documentary about an extraordinary experiment in Holocaust education. Struggling to grasp the concept of six-million Holocaust victims, the students decide to collect six-million paper clips to better understand the extent of this crime against humanity. The film details how the students met Holocaust survivors from around the world and how the experience transformed them and their community.
