    I saw a question asked to Rav Chaim Kanievsky.Q:If one makes a trefia animal from using Sefer Yetzira can one eat it.A: Tumah does not come from shamyim,so basically it is impossible.(Shailos Rav)

    Does anyone else have interesting questions they saw or heard?

    Sheilo Utshuvo – Jews Go Jousting.

    It’s from Sefer Mevo Hara’avyah, written in the 12th/13th Century by R’ Eliezer ben Yoel Halevi. It talks about Reuven who borrowed a suit of armour to go jousting and lost it and had to pay it back.

    Reuven sued Shimon and claimed: I came to you to borrow your suit of armor (shiryonekha) in order to return it to you after two weeks or to pay you (26) [27] [14] [in exchange] I will pay you the 27 [old] Cologne denarii.

    The rest carries on:

    Shimon replied: From the time of the exchange more than half a year has passed and you were required to repay the debt to me immediately. But you pushed me off day after day, until I could forebear no longer and I sold 12 new coins for 13 old ones, and everyone in our city knows that this was the exchange rate. But now the old ones have gone down in value and I traded 14 [old ones] for 12 simple new ones. And that is why you come to sue me and besmirch (le-ha`alil) me. Moreover, I told you then explicitly that I did not want to accept them except at an exchange rate of 12 for 13, and you agreed. Also I was responsible for looking after your collateral and preserving your profit if the value increased. But if the value had decreased I would have left it, and not [acted] in this way (?). Reuven said: I deposited them as collateral and you have no right to receive interest from me. Answer: Based on their statements, it seems to me that if [Reuven] deposited collateral that required an appraisal, Shimon should not have sold it, except by order of a court or three others who [would arrange that] an appraisal be performed by experts. And if it increased in value in the hands of the lender or in the hands of the depositor, then so it did and that is his good fortune.

    Cool !!!!

    Sefer Yetzira is not Min Shamayim. Rashi says that Sefer Yetzira is using the Sheimos that Hashem used to create the world. If Hashem created Treifa animals then, then you can do it now, too, with Sefer Yetzira.

    You are correct with regards to the sheimos(The Shlah Hakadosh).Your question is good but it is on the gemara in Shanhadrin(59b).The Gemara brings a story with Reb Shimon ben Chalafta where there were lions and two slabs of meat came from shamyim and one he took to the bais medriash.He asked is it a treifh or kosher,they answered ain tameh min hashamyim.(ayin shum)

    I heard this shaila a while ago:

    [When naming a child R’Chaim Kanievski Shlita does not like using names that are not proper names.There are various minhagim and many are not like R’Chaims shitta. Sephardim use Hodaya, Rachamim. Chassidish minhag is also not like R’Chaims shitta.]

    A young man once came to R’Chaim and told him that he would like to name his daughter Shira.R’Chaim didnt like it and asked him why Shira? The young man answered that she was born on Shabbos shira and that he thoght that it would be fitting. R’Chaim asked him had she have born on Shabbos Parshas Poroh would you have named her Poroh Adumoh???

    Sam4, I’m aware of that Gemara. That was Min Shamayim, but creating with the Sheymos of Yetzira is not, or shouldn’t be.

    The Yaavetz has a teshuva where a guy killed someone and wanted to know if he can swear falsely to save himself from the authorities.

    A: That would be adding another Cheit.

    The Chacham Tzvi is Mesupak if a person created through Sefer Yetzirah counts for a Minyan. THe Chavos Ya’ir answers no.

    “a person created through Sefer Yetzirah”

    In a weird way this reminds me of the story told over by Rav Shalom Shwadron Z’l about the Shagas Aryes biheima (no he didnt create an animal using sefer yetzira).

    HaLeiVi:

    So then what is the difference between using shemios of creation and shamyim.That is how Rav Chaim is learning the usage of sefer Yetzira.

    Sam2:

    Doesn’t the Chacham Tzvi answer his own question using the story of R’zeira and Rava that a golem does not count,and the Mishna Berurah quotes the Chacham Tzvi.

    The next question in the shailos Rav is can one eat a person made from Sefer Yetzira A:ain zeh pashut.In the footnotes it brings down two tzadim explaining why yes and why no .

    I don’t think so. I think the CH”TZ leaves it B’safek and that is what the M”B quotes.

    If a drop of milk falls into a pot of meat and there is 60 times more meat than the drop then the food is mutar.The question is, is it assur to throw out the food since one is uncomfortable to eat something which milk fell into even though it is 100 percent mutar or one cant be machmir on wasting mutar food?

    The Pri Toar holds that one may be machmir on himself and not eat the food. However, the Toras Ha’asham holds very strongly that since the Torah said it is permitted one should eat it and not throw it out. Similarly, the Darchai Tshuva brings the Bnei Yisachar and Shla’ah that also say that one should eat it and there is no midas chasidus not to eat it rather it is a mitzvah to eat it. With this he explains the Chazal “???? ????? ????? ??? ???? ???? ????” that a person that legitimately works to find a proper heter for something and eats it is greater then one who has yiras shamaim and does not eat it.

    wherever you want it to fall,in the case I am talking about it is mutar.

    #814016

    Sam, the key words in the last paragraph of your post are “legitimately” and “proper”.

    Speaking of a drop of milk falling in to a pot of meat. As per sam4321; There was once a person who had a Shabbos guest. While they were eating cholent, the host was holding an infant with a bottle of milk. A drop of milk spilled into the plate of cholent. The host, wanting to show what a big talmid Chochom he is, told his older son to bring a Shulchan Aruch Hilchos Shabbos. When someone asked, why, specifically Hilchos Shabbos. The host answered; “Because we eat Cholent on Shabbos”!

    Yom Kippur: Where is there a case that a person willfully (in a healthy state) eats on yom kippur and is patur?

    A: If one eats during the seuda hamfsekes and is full and then eats on yom kippur in a state of achilas gasa(gluttonous state) he is patur aval ASSUR.(Yoma 80b)

    The Gemara in Chullin (44b) says ??? ?? ????? ????? ??? ???? ?? ?? ????? ????? ????? ???? ????? ????? ?????? ????? ???? ????? ???? (????? ???, ?) ???? ???? ?? ???? ????? ???? ?? ?? ???? ??? ???? ????? ??? ?????? ????? ??? ?????? ??? ????? ????? ??? ???? ?? ????? ??? and the Meiri and the Maharsha respectively both explain the Gemara in Chullin in the manner you quoted from the Darchei Teshuva.
