When does one add the appellation of “Hamevin Yavin” (?????? ????)?
In the older Seforim it was used when referencing a Kabbalistic concept that the author did not wish to explicitly state. Now people use it to end an article/piece when they want to sound fancy.
It was also used in correspondence when the author wanted to refer to an issue without saying lashon hara or angering the Christian censor. The first reason still makes the phrase useful.
i use it when i think ill get modded. i hope the mods wont chap. and the people i want to chap will. vihameivin yovin
In my Yeshiva days
If you get the 3rd one, either we know eachother or have mutual friends 🙂
Sam: Original the term was generally only used in conjunction with Kabbalistic issues?
Tomche: I’m not sure only but from what I’ve seen it’s definitely the majority of the time.
Toi, I prefer the English equivalent, “You know what”.
