    Siyyum on Masekhet Sheqalim with Presentation by Eric Krauss
    Monday, Apr 12th 8:00p to 9:00p
    Masekhet Sheqalim takes its name from a unit of value introduced in Sefer Bereishit in the context of the purchase of a burial site. How was the sheqel originally defined? Was it a coin? Was it issued in Judea? What was the kolbon, and how was it related to the prutah? Eric Krauss, a retired pediatrician with a longstanding interest in numismatics and a volunteer curatorial associate at the American Numismatic Society, will discuss these and related questions during a presentation for members of CRO at the conclusion of study of Masekhet Sheqalim.
