This has to do with any Divrei Torah, issues in Shulchan Oruch and its Meforshim, and Torah and its MeforshimFebruary 26, 2009 12:13 am at 12:13 am #951088WolfishMusingsParticipant

What is the “this” in the above sentence referring to?

sorry for not being clear, I meant this thread when I said this.
Let’s start out with Hanhogos Adam Baboker: Shulchan Oruch siman Alef, any comments or shailos on that?February 26, 2009 12:40 am at 12:40 am #951090flatbush27Member

It says yigaber ka ari that you have to get up like a lion,but if you went to the zoo on chol hamoed you would see that the lion is the most sleepy and lazy animal there,whats the comparison?April 22, 2009 9:44 pm at 9:44 pm #951093
ever listened to professor chai and his torah zoo?April 22, 2009 9:54 pm at 9:54 pm #951094
this isn’t a real source, but as far as i remember, most of the animal facts on that tape are based on emes.
what i do know for a fact is that a lion sleeps for up to 20 hours a day.
not sure about this, but i think that when they rise they do it with a lot of strength and determination.
no one ever said to sleep like a lion – just to get up like one 😉April 22, 2009 10:10 pm at 10:10 pm #951095
round of applause- that was a great answerApril 22, 2009 10:22 pm at 10:22 pm #951096
areivim, that was from a KID’S tape. not too impressive that my knowledge of torah is based on a story i listened to when i was seven.April 22, 2009 10:27 pm at 10:27 pm #951097oomisParticipant
:::::::::::Clapping madly for Moish:::::::::
Maybe it is also that we should get up confidently, knowing that we can be misgabeir over our yetzer hara, the way that a lion is misgabeir over his enemies. Also, even the lion who is lazy and sleepy, DOES get up, because he has an achrayus to fulfill retzon Hashem.April 22, 2009 11:02 pm at 11:02 pm #951098
moish who cares about the source (as long as it’s emes and jewish). I rate it a good answer because it makes sense, it was a good way of applying knowledge, was original and well put. (wew)April 22, 2009 11:11 pm at 11:11 pm #951099WolfishMusingsParticipant

What if the source were emes but not Jewish?

for questions on the shilchan oruch I wouldn’t go with anything non-jewish. Or do you disagree?May 7, 2013 9:35 pm at 9:35 pm #951101LanderTalmidParticipant
The maamar is ‘yisgabber koari laamod baboker’ not ‘yaamod baboker bigvurah koari.’ It is saying that one should get up and overpower the yetzer hara with the strength that a lion uses to hunt, as the gemara notes that a lion doesn’t even kill its prey but eats it live. This is a lesson to us who are not capable of killing the yetzer hara but require the strength of a lion to be victorious.
