    Did you see the front cover of the Jewish Press?

    Bloody embarrasing it was.

    Bloody is a curse word in England so please stop cursing on Yeshiva world.

    Many Gedolim in the past rode Donkeys Ponies and Horses. I am sure Moshe Rabbeneu rode a Donkey at some time in his life

    Speaking of which, on shabbos we were discussing how strange it is that Eliyahu Hanavi is going to appear riding on a donkey. It doesn’t seem tzugepast for a navi. We concluded that it probably means a Bugaboo Donkey, which is luxurious and fit for a king.

    How many of us and how hard do we have to metaphorize the passage of Krias Shma which promises the happiness of pasture for your animal?

    Pasture for your animal = gasoline. We had this crisis recently…

    I saw the picture. Quite hilarious. Also I feel bad for the ponies. Why put large men on small ponies when you can put them on a horse?

    Yup.

    I can’t say I’m surprised. You know how it is with Chassidim & Minhag. I’m just surprised that they moved to the Modernish inventions of indoor plumbing & electricity! (JK)

    Eliyahu Hanavi is going to appear riding on a donkey? I thought it be moshiach (rashi in chumish “HaChamor” – same one as Avrohom’s, Moshe’s and Moshiach.

    Moshiach on a donkey sounds like a Xtian concept.

    Riding horses seems unbecoming of a talmid chacham, just like going rock climbing, dreing around at amusement parks, other frivolities etc. seems unbecoming of a learned man.

    Yes, or a passuk and gemara.

    See Zecharya 9:9; Sanhedrin 98a

    Actually, ??? ????? ?? ???? is from ??? ?????. There are of course many meforshim including the gemorah in ??????? that ??? ?? ???? ????, ?? ??? ??? ???? ?? ????.

    But even when considering ??? ???? ???? ???? ????? the concept is not so strange, to quote the ?????:

    ??? ???? ?? ????? ????? ??? ??????

    ??? ????? ???? ????? ????? ????? ?? ???? ???

    ??? ????? ??? ??? ???? ??? ????, ????? ??????, ?????: ??????? ?? ?????

    ??? ????? ????? ?? ??? ????? ????
