Without a doubt: Understanding the role of ספק in הלכה
Everything is not always black and white in הלכה. There are many ספקות which need to be understood

As excitement builds throughout Klal Yisrael for the upcoming 13th Global Siyum HaShas, there is an increased passion for learning Torah. After the amazing success of the Rabbi Chaim Yisrael Belsky Chulin Initiative, reaching thousands in dozens of cities across the world.
Get ready for The Chulin Initiative Part 2 featuring leading rabbanim and poskim discussing practical Kashrus related issues on video. This is not only for those learning the related sugyos in Chulin as part of Daf Yomi, but for everyone who is interested in learning.
For decades, Agudas Yisrael has been at the forefront of spreading Torah learning throughout the country. on January 28, 1968, 300 people gathered at Bais Yaakov of Boro Park for the largest Siyum HaShas to date in the United States. Followed by the 7th Siyum HaShas, held on June 15, 1975, at the Manhattan Center in New York City, which drew an audience of over 5,000 and the 8th Siyum on November 14, 1982, in Felt Forum. The memorable 9th Siyum in Madison Square Garden on April 26, 1990, drew 20,000 participants and exceeded all expectations. Since then, most of us remember the growth firsthand, with the tenth Siyum in Madison Square Garden and Nassau Coliseum, to the addition of the Javits Center for the 11th siyum and the largest event of its kind in recent Jewish history, the 12th Siyum in MetLife Stadium in 2012.
The inspiration these events brought to hundreds of thousands who attended spread throughout the world and led to tens of thousands committed to learning each and every day. Over the last two decades, The Agudah has been taking unprecedented steps to not only encourage learning The Daf but understanding The Daf better with Shiurim, live streams and special events like The Chulin Initiative. And now, as we approach the upcoming 13th Global SIyum HaShas, to be held be”H on January 1, 2020 at MetLife Stadium and satellite locations around the world, we look forward to an even greater growth in Torah learning.
This has been at the heart of The Agudah for a long time. For years, Rav Belsky zt”l, as Moreh D’asrah of Camp Agudah held demonstrations like these for hundreds of talmidim over the years. Rav Belsky dedicated his life to sharing his encyclopedic knowledge of Torah and science with a hands-on approach bringing the most obscure sugyos to life for thousands of talmidim worldwide.The Global Chulin Initiative aims to carry on his great legacy by bringing Chulin to hundreds of thousands of Jews around the world.
