It says כל המרבה לספר ביציאת מצרים whoever increases this story telling about Yetzias Mitzraim, הרי זה משובח he himself becomes praiseworthy.
The Rambam only applies on בין אדם למקום but not בין אדם לחבירו because I think he is a נוגע בדבר.
There is a cute joke. When someone was machmir, they said that you are like a dog. A dog is also machmir considering everything tref and therefore he should get it.
The sefer Tiferes Yanoson says there בידוע שיש מקום ישוב בלבנה.
“The pot had to be kashered”, Why
The reason for making a brocho on a blossoming fruit tree is to recognize Hashem’s creation to benefit us by enjoying and appreciating the taste and smell of his actions.
It says מה רבו מעשיך ה כולם בחכמה עשית how great are your actions Hashem everything with wisdom you created.
Repeating what I wrote before:
The sefer Tiferes Yanoson by Rebbe Rav Yanoson Eibshutz explains the Dor Haflogah that they built the tower where air is light in order to escape another flood by moving to the moon knowing that it is a place where they can settle.
iacisrmma, The RMA 453 says that if kitniyas falls into a pot and gets cooked it does not asser the pot because בדיעבד it does not asser it provided there is רוב. The question is if she did not know it is kitniyas is that lekatchila or bedaved?
Thank you, Midwest2. I appreciate your plea and will take it into consideration.
Joseph what you are saying is correct. There is a fixed hidden time from us that comes because of fear מלך קשה כהמן. If we don’t do teshuva by ourselves, we will be forced to do it, but we can do teshuva from love and bring the geulah before the fixed time. See the Ksav Sofer on הנסתרות לה אלקינו.
When you do the mitzva be careful not to ashame him. It says
אל תוכיח לץ פן ישנאך הוכיח חכם ויאהבך says the Shlah Hakadesh that when you admonish him, don’t say he is a letz because he will come to hate you and not accept the admonishment, but if you say he is a chacham he will come to love you and accept it.
Toi, Please explain to me how do you make the house fit for Moshiach?
I am saying we must unify ourselves to be worthy to bring him. See my post on the three pillars above.
We find by the aron it says, מבית ומחוץ תצפנו, the aron was gold from inside and outside. The sign that he is a rasha is because he behaves differently outside towards people than when he is alone with family. So we have to publicize what we know so he should not influence others. This is different than a tinuk shenishba where he behaves the same way inside and outside.
JJ2020, The look at it like that. The importance is unity like the four children sitting on one table and the arba minim together. We must unify the arovus with the rest of the minim. The chelbno was included with the katoras, even though it has a bad smell, to strengthen everything. See Daroshes Haran 1
The reason that והגדת לבנך applies to yourself alone also, because when you express yourself, you strengthen your own belief as well.
As a halochic discussion without paskenen, I would think yes. The heter of
maybe guest will come who can use it, but over here there is no maybe because the sefadi is in front of us and you can also give it to your young child.
It is an argument whether yearning alone is good enough or we have to do deeds like doing things to bring unity and building the bais hamikdash together.
Parshas Tzav talks about an עולה that comes as a sacrifice for improper thinking. The mind needs special protection. היא העולה על מוקדה if someone elevates himself, he ends up on the fire, but והרים את הדשן if he sees himself as ashes then he will be elevated.
Look at the Rambam Hilchas Daes 6:9 that there is a mitzva to admonish him בין אדם למקום and if he does not change, you can ashame him in public.
If he doesn’t show that he cares for the will of Hashem and only does the minimum, I don’t know if that will bring Moshiach. As I said before that we must encourage others also to do mitzvos to bring unity, and that requires a complete devotion to the will of Hashem.
DY, He is not a kofer but it is preferable to do it because of לעשות נחת רוח ליוצרנו like a the Mesilos Yeshorim says that if we do mitzvos as a son, we anticipate what the father wants, but when we do it because we were commanded, we do it as a servant, so we do the minimum we must do.
As our last exile came because of שנאת חנם we have to do things that bring us together. All three תורה, עבודה and גמלות חסדים can help towards אחדות, unity. Torah, the Orech Chaim Hakodash in Parshas Tzaveh says that this last redemption will come in zechus of Moshe Rabbenu. If we learn Torah lishma to do everything, when learning, to arrive to the truth like Shimon Hamosini who was willing to give up practically his whole life’s work when he saw that he did not come to the truth when he was darshening את and stopped by את ה אלקיך תיראה. This should be done with a chavrusa where each question and answers thereby finding the truth. When it comes to avodah to daven with a minyan. We must recognize that we are individually not worthy to be listened to. Then, gemilos chasodim where we help physically and monetarily each other which brings us together.March 21, 2018 11:30 pm at 11:30 pm in reply to: Where it says that there is a jiyub to put on Tfillin every day? #1495957
Wolf, See O”CH 25 MB sk 14
We should hide our thumbs when davening.
If I am correct, Reb Moshe holds that we should make a shecheyonu on a new car.March 21, 2018 9:26 pm at 9:26 pm in reply to: Where it says that there is a jiyub to put on Tfillin every day? #1495904
Isn’t it a false testimony? The Chasam Sofer held that a person who does not follow shamita should not be עולה when it is being leined on Yom Tov.
We have a minhag according to the Chok Yaakov for those who wear Tefillin to keep it on the first day of Chol Hamoed when leining kadesh.March 21, 2018 5:51 pm at 5:51 pm in reply to: Where it says that there is a jiyub to put on Tfillin every day? #1495862
Wolf, did you see my previous post that if someone can put on Tefillin and he doesn’t put it on on- purpose, he might not be yotze krias shma because it is an עדות שקר and be a מצוה הבאה בעבירה? See MB 25:4 only בדיעבד יוצא.
There is a story where a man did not know how to pray, so he whistled. It was praised how this whistling was accepted above because it came from the full heart. רחמנא ליבא בעי what comes from the heart is the most important.
There is another way of looking at it. The sanctity of EY causes a bigger yetzer hora, therefore it is harder to keep the Torah there, So you either have very religious people there or the opposite. I know that Rashi brings the Sifri to keep the mitzvos in chul for EY. It doesn’t matter what the reason for keeping them in chul, but if we want the redemption, we must keep it.
I happened to be very much makpid on mayim achronim at least on shabbos see O”CH 181 siman 10. Besides the reason for the melach sadomis there was another reason were someone was recognized because of the spot left on his moustache. We can only be redeemed when we correct our transgressions that caused our exile from EY. The Ksav Sofer in Parshas Devorim starting ראשונים שנתגלו עוונם explains in great detail the difference between the first חורבן and the second. The first was caused because of violation of בין אדם למקום idol worship, adultery and murder. These transgressions are caused because of affluence. People forget who has bestowed them all the good because of a fertile land. They were exiled to Babylon where they were noble man doing very well. They had to show that they will not sway away from Hashem because of their affluence. Our current exile is the opposite. This second exile is because of בין אדם לחבירו it came because of futile hatred which comes about when people are jelous of each other. Therefore we must be exiled going from one place to another and have futile love אהבת חנם to correct our transgression. This is indicated in the passage הא לחמא עניא we are in a state of poverty so we want to correct our futile hatred by inviting people to our meal which will bring the redemption in our time Amen. We can see ourselves being around a circle and Hashem is in the center. Through the Torah we bring the points together to make the circle smaller and eventually coincide with the center,March 20, 2018 10:44 pm at 10:44 pm in reply to: Where it says that there is a jiyub to put on Tfillin every day? #1495450
Wolf, Even though they are unrelated, it still encourages to put on tefilin every day, when we don’t have another os, to be able to say krias shma with tefilin as this thread questions. Mechaber O”CH 25:4 and MB there.March 20, 2018 10:42 pm at 10:42 pm in reply to: Where it says that there is a jiyub to put on Tfillin every day? #1495453
Wolf, We might go a step further, if you have no reason for not putting on tefillin, and you say krias shma without it, it might be a מצוה הבאה בעבירה because it is an עדות שקר and you are not yotza krias shma.

Yekke2, There are two different mitzvos for krias shma one for day another for night. As per the Shagas Aryeh it makes it a time bound mitzva. So the day might have to be said with tefillin but not at night.March 20, 2018 8:05 pm at 8:05 pm in reply to: Where it says that there is a jiyub to put on Tfillin every day? #1495406

Yekke2, This Rabbenu Yonah agrees with the Rabbenu Bechaye in Parshas Ki Sovo that the shiyan on the tefillin indicates that they are 300 days in a year when we should put on tefillin including chol hamoed.March 20, 2018 6:03 pm at 6:03 pm in reply to: Where it says that there is a jiyub to put on Tfillin every day? #1495386
With tefillin you tie yourself to Hashem on your left hand with one sense, feeling, with one compartment, recognizing your weakness close to the heart, thereby sanctifying your actions, and on your head to sanctify your mind which contains four senses (smelling, tasting, seeing, hearing) with four compartments.March 20, 2018 6:03 pm at 6:03 pm in reply to: Where it says that there is a jiyub to put on Tfillin every day? #1495381
There is a commandment to say Kries Shma in the morning which requires tefillin as it says to tie it on as a symbolism an os on your hand and head. On Shabbos and Yom Tov since they are a symbolism for themselves, we don’t need to put on tefillin. You should say kries shma in its right time without tefillin (if unable to put on) and re-say it when tefillin is available. We don’t put on tefillin at night.
The proof to the Rabbenu Chananel is Rabbon Gamliel with his forms that the edim had to agree to. He brings a proof from the desert where there was no sun or moon only the clouds and they were able to make Rosh Chodesh because they went after the cheshbun and not after the riyeh,
The Magen Avraham asks the question that the mitzva of sefira is to show our anticipation for Kabolas Hatorah, but it was given on the second day of Shavuos which is really the fifty first day of sefira? He answers that this implies Yom Tov Sheni Shel Golias. The Torah was given to know how to live in diaspora as it says שם תהא קבורתכם there in golias when the only thing that teaches us is the Torah. In Eretz Yisroel, if we were holy enough, we would have understood the Torah on our own like the avos kept the Torah in Eretz Yisroel before it was given.
They consider potatoes as the חיי אדם but canola like olive oil, soya and corn we can avoid.
Potatoes were not available at the time of the prohibition in Europe even if it is considered a legume.
I think you can only say the blessings before it bears fruits when it is blossoming.
