    Avi K, You opened up an interesting discussion. From the Rambam above is no prove as he uses the expression borrowing for no need but here there is a need for shabbos. The Aruch Hashulchan answers a contradiction because it also says עשה שבתך חול ואל תצטרך לבריות make your shabbos like a week day and don’t rely on others. So he says if he does not have a means of support, he should not borrow. What about tuition? Can you borrow for it when you don’t have the means to repay it? The above is not said on it but is one of the things that is not pre-determined and you should borrow to be able to pay it.

    akuperma, As I mentioned, Hashem wants us to borrow and He promises to repay, obviously fron a Jew where no interest is charged.

    לוו עלי ואני פורע Hashem says borrow on My behalf and I will repay. There are certain things that are not determined like tuition for Talmud Torah and Shabbos and Yom Tov expenses.

    Look at the website of the National Agudath Israel about their statement for the moral obligation not to separate children from the parents and to reunite them.

    The total money spent is being determined not individual items. You can buy something else for the difference or give it to tzedaka.

    How can the Parah Adumah be both tohar and tumah? The Klei Yokor uses the scientific rule opposites react. The Parah Adumah is made up of two parts, the water and the ground. The water is tahor whereas the ground is tamei. When you put it on a tumah person, there is no effect from the ground only from the water making him tahor, on the hand when you put it on a tahor person, there is no effect from the water but only from the ground, making him tumah.

    The president would not sign an executive order if he would not see something wrong in tearing families apart by separating parents from children.

    I left Hungary in the1956 revolution. We snuck through the border as a child to Austria avoiding search lights. I can’t imagine how my parents would have felt if we were separated. We spent two and half years in a displacement camp. Let Trump do the same thing keeping families together in a displacement camp waiting to be evaluated to come here.

    Rashi says that Korach was carrying the holy ark, what does he want to tell us by that? Korach claimed by birthright that the nisuis belongs to him because his father was older than Elitzofon’s father. if that is the case, he should not carry the holy ark since Gershom was older than Kehos. Therefore we go after merit and not birthright and his question is answered since Elitzofon can be more worthy than him.

    If all are holy and heard on Har Sinai the Aseres Hadibros what makes Korach better? That is the point. Korach held that they all sinned by the Eigel includiing Aharon who contibuted to the sin, but Korach from Levi did not sin.

    The 250 people put on a talis of all techeles, what was the purpose? The Ksav Sofer explains that ztitzis is a reminder of the mitzvos thereby a reminder of Hashem, which can be done without any techeles. Someone might need a picture to keep a person being missed infront of him because of his great love to satisfy their longing for him. Techeles is like a picture of kavayochel Hashem. They wore the talis of all techeles asking if it needs ztitzis to ascetain what Moshe Rabbenu thinks of them about their closeness to Hashem. When he said it still needs tzitzis, they got upset because they came to realize that Moshe Rabbenu believes that they are not close to Hashem.

    What I said before is not correct. There is another level of sinas chinom where someone hates someone when he has a valid reason to hate him and does not tell the person about it but keeps the hatred bottled up in his heart. If he is a known rasha, you allowed to hate him so that you should not learn from him, אל תתחבר לרשע like it says don’t befriend a wicked person.

    The Torah is realistic. People tend to hate each other when they do bad to them. So the Torah says don’t hate him but tell him about it. If you don’t tell him about it, it is still asur to hate but not sinas chinom but hatred bottled up in the heart. If you will not tell him about it because it is not a valid reason to hate him, you will have sinas chinom which will fester forever. If a person is a known rasha, you allowed to hate him so not to learn from him.

    Since it is important I will quote the Rashbam -If he does bad to you, don’t get to hate him (talk to him with nice words and in your heart plan against him) but admonish him for the bad deeds he has done to you which will eventually lead to peace. Says the Yad Joseph above that this only works for excusable hatred for offenses normally being hated for but for others he will not tell the hated individual because he has no valid reason to hate him, so he will keep his hatred bottled up in his heart causing sinas chinom.

    It is a valid base it is not sinas chinom because you will not keep your hatred bottled up and will tell the person being hated bringing peace. See the Rashbam above and the Yad Joseph quoted above.

    DY, I agree. Hating someone for dressing differently is real sinas chinom because you will not tell the person hated since it is not an excusable hatred.

    Korach did not think logically. He does not explain, why he deserves the Kehuna Gedolah more than Aharon? I heard that when a person has self interest, he does not think logically.

    What is sinas chinom? It says לא תשנא את אחיך בלבבך, do not keep you hatred bottled up in your heart, הוכח תוכיח את עמיתך go admonish your friend. Explains the Yad Joseph on the Ein Yaakov Yoma 9 that this is an inexcusable hatred. When the hatred is excusable, he will tell the person the reason for his hatred bringing peace , but if it is not, like jealousy, he will not divulge his hatred and he will show a friendly face continuing the hatred.

    The problem is they are not trained sensitivity, tact. It is not so much the saying but how to say it. That is what derech eretz is. It is the time for Moshiach when the young have no respect for the elders ירהבו הנער בזקן.
