Is it healthy for bachurim to have a troll on the internet decided for them?February 6, 2019 8:47 am at 8:47 am #1674884
Define “healthy”. Is it healthy for math students to have calculators? Is it healthy for writers to have spell/grammar-checks? The world keeps evolving and some skills may be weakened while others are strengthened. With the invention of matches, many of us lost the skill of starting a fire by rubbing sticks together – is that unhealthy? Was the printing of “mesoras haShas” unhealthy (cross references each segment of Gemarah with other places it is mentioned)? Today there are seforim on databases with search engines! A rov can search for teshuvas! The market today is flooded with Seforim that are melaket (collect) in halacha. drush, meforshim on chumash…Get with the program. While we make learning easier, it allows for energy to be spent on deeper concepts in the learning.February 6, 2019 10:31 am at 10:31 am #1674925
i agree 100%February 6, 2019 12:09 pm at 12:09 pm #1675057
Thank you Knaidl for you hascoma, and at 100%, that is a maximum agreement! I would add that there is a “yeridas hadoros” which requires compensation in Torah academia. I think the rosh yeshivas of today are not like the rosh yeshivas of previous generations, but would bochurim today really appreciate the depth and creativity of a shiyur from Reb Chaim (the GRACH), or Reb Elchonon, or Reb Boruch Ber or Reb Moshe Mordechai or Reb Shimon Shkop….Yiftach b’doro k’Shmuel b’doro, each dor gets leaders acording to the dor. I would suggest, each dor gets a shas according to the needs of that dor!February 6, 2019 12:18 pm at 12:18 pm #1675081

NoFebruary 6, 2019 3:05 pm at 3:05 pm #1675247
Reb Yid: By all means, remind us all of “the tragic history of Rebbitzen Golden-Pick-A-Nicer-Screen-Name’s name”! Was it tragic?February 6, 2019 3:21 pm at 3:21 pm #1675265
For sure it’s healthier! An amazing fact!

Yes, Rebbitzen. You used to post under a different name, but tragically, one day you came to the coffee room and found that it had been changed. You couldn’t even get your preferred alternative, Goldengizzard.February 6, 2019 6:21 pm at 6:21 pm #1675644
I think the print is too clear and standard and therefore too easy to read. It definitely takes away some of the ameilus b’torah.February 6, 2019 6:23 pm at 6:23 pm #1675641
Hello and WB. I don’t post there that often (as I should be), I remember that one, Rebbitzen. I think it was because of something I complained about… the name didn’t sound too “eidel”. I’m sorry if I read it wrongly, or if I hurt anyone’s feelings in the process. RY, were you posting way back then? I don’t seem to recall..February 7, 2019 7:22 am at 7:22 am #1675762
“Today there are seforim on databases with search engines! A rov can search for teshuvas! The market today is flooded with Seforim that are melaket (collect) in halacha.”
If you are a true Lamdan you will see that is precisely the indication of what is the con of all those search engines etc.
I have seen numerous quotations of these so-called “melaktim” that have been totaly either misquoted or, totaly out of context. Many times the opposite of final halacha etc.
That is no doubt a result of one using. “search” and not knowing thoroughly, but rather seeing quickly a qoute and not learning the final end, or the next teshuvah.
However, there is nothing wrong by using search here and there, but if that is your entire basis of knlowedge then your knlowedge is not true kinyan of yedios. You might remember it for a day or a week, but it will never be a part of you.
You will never find someone like Rav Ovadia Yosef misquoting, for his knlowedge was obtained through yegiah and learning through these seforim from cover to cover.February 7, 2019 7:22 am at 7:22 am #1675763
Is it healthy for bachurim to skip learning נך.”
No its not. See marhal in Derech haChayim perek 6 mishnah 48 devarim etc. It was already an issue in his times.February 11, 2019 3:29 pm at 3:29 pm #1677513
What’s wrong with the new vilna shas? It sounds like someone just doesn’t like the word NEW.
New doesn’t mean bad or wrong.February 11, 2019 3:29 pm at 3:29 pm #1677514
