    hint:

    the thread currently has an very interesting number of posts. now it could change by the time someone looks again, however as of a few hours ago…

    #1205459

    mod72,

    before you posted that, there were 257 posts. that’s 72 backwards with a 5 in the middle because you are 27 and have 5 kids. Am I close?

    hey mods this place is too boring tonight! what happened??? i miss one night and after that the place crashes??? wow i didn’t realize i was so important around here!

    let me rephrase that. i KNOW i’m Miss Chashuve. but i thought there were some people that MIGHT be able to TRY and fill in at least HALF of what i do. i guess not.

    _______________________________________________________________________________

    Did anyone else notice that since brooklyn became the most frequent poster here, Joseph has been largely MIA. Brooklyn, you aren’t really Joseph are you?

    And before you rip my head off, yes, I am just joking! πŸ™‚

    Copied from the thread which currently has 72 posts! –

    YW Moderator-72Moderator I grew up in a family that enjoyed sports. We were encouraged us to be active in all different kinds of sports leagues – I was involved in bowling, football, basketball, soccer and baseball leagues at various times. Playing sports for fun, excerise and even competition is fine. Spending hours reading up on the latest deals, trades and statistics is not the ideal (to say the least).

    Now we have to figure out why its 72. Something to do with sports…

    o qaws that could be it…

    charlie brown, although you do have a point, there style of posting and content is very different, but maybe she just scared Joseph off because he now has a competitor

    The Gemara asks the following question: ” Mai Chanukah, What is Chanukah”?

    Rashi explains the Gemara’s question to mean, “Due to which miracle was the Yom Tov of Chanukah instituted?”

    The Gemara goes on to answer the question as follows: On the 25th day of Kislev begin the eight days of Chanukah. It is prohibited to eulogize anyone on these days and it is prohibited to fast on these days.

    Why?

    When the Greeks entered the Bais HaMikdash they[handled all the vessels and touched and] made all the oil [that was used to light the menorah] impure. When the Chashmonaim (sometimes referred to as the macabees) overpowered the Greek army and won the war they searched the entire Bais HaMikdash and were only able to find one small jug of pure oil [with the seal of the Kohen Gadol on it].

    There was only enough oil in this jug to light the menorah for one day. However, a miracle occurred and the small amount of oil was sufficient to light the menorah for eight days (until they were once again able to purify themselves and produce more oil).

    The following year, beginning on 25 Kislev, the Chachamim instituted an eight day Yom Tov (which we refer to as Chanukah) dedicated to Halel (praise) and Hoda’ah (Thanks) [to Hashem].

    (Talmud Shabbos 21b, also brought in the Tur beginning of Hilchos Chanukah)

    1) According to many Rishonim there is no requirement to have a Seudah (festive meal) on Chanukah, and any Seudah that is made is a Seudas Reshus (non obligatory meal).

    Others argue and maintain that there is indeed a requirement to have a Seudah, with bread, on Chanukah.

    The prevelant minhag when having a Seudah on Chanukah is to sing Shiros V’Tishbachos (praises) to Hashem and/or talk Divrei Torah, thus making it a Seudas Mitzvah according to all opinions.

    2) It is customary to eat foods made with cheese on Chanukah in commemoration of the miracle of Yehudis’ slaying of the Greek general Heliphornius which is considered one of the miracles of Chanukah, in which cheese played a role. (See Ram”a Siman 670:2 and Mishna Berura S”K 10. for more on the story. )

    1) All Jews are obligated in the Mitzvah of lighting Chanukah candles.

    This applies to men, women and children (who have reached the age of Chinuch; approximately 5 or 6 years of age), as all Jews were saved in the miraculous victory of the Macabbees over the mighty Greek army. (Additionally, as we discussed in the previous Halachos, women are specifically obligated in the Mitzvos of Chanukah, due to their being saved from the harsh decrees levied against them, via the heroic act of Yehudis, a woman)

    2) The prevalent Minhag is for the male head of household to exempt all the female members of the house (adults and children alike), through the lighting of his menorah.

    The females being exempted should make sure to be present and listen to the recital of the Brachos [and answer Amen] while the menorah is kindled. (Mishna Berurah 675:9)

    Of course, if no man is available to exempt her, a women may light [and make the blessings over] her own menorah. A woman can also exempt other people with her lighting, when no man is available to do this. (See Smag Hilchos Chanukah, Taz 675:3, Magen Avraham ibid.)

    Boys who have reached the age of Chinuch should preferably light their own menorahs [with all the Halachic details involved] and not rely on the head of the household’s lighting. (Ram’a 675:3. See also Mishna Berura and Biur Halacha ibid. Dibur Hamaschil U’Ldidan, regarding if there is a Mitzvah of Chinuch for “Hidur Mitzvah” or just for the “letter of the law” and thus children would only have to light one candle per night.)
