    MBD is lighter on his feet, but Yossi delivers a mean left hook!

    I find it hard both to accept criticism and compliments, I think for different reasons.

    lebidik yankel – Rav Hirsch’s lashon: “This sharp irony even in moments of deepest anxiety and despair is characteristic of the witty vein which is inherent in the Jewish race from their earliest beginnings.”

    The baalei teshuvah yeshivos do NOT only deal with people who were secular at birth – believe me. Please reach out to them (Ohr Sameach, Aish HaTorah, etc.) and they will give you guidance tailored for YOU. Hatzlachah rabbah!

    Got A Good Point: I don’t think that the pashtus is that it is referring to all mitzvos, but rather to the aforementioned mitzvos in the parashah, i.e. the עבודה הזאת and eating matzos. So to say that it is referring to the 14th would ignore matzos completely, whereas to say that it is referring to the nighttime includes all the mitzvos, even the korban, which is eaten at night. I struggled with your question for a number of years, but I think that this is pashut pshat. 🙂

    The possuk is saying that Hashem took us out of mitzrayim because of “this”, i.e. to do this. We know that Hashem took us out of Mitzrayim to do all the mitzvos of Pesach, including matzah and maror, not just the korban pesach. So therefore it must be referring to night, when we keep all these mitzvos, and not the day, when we are only doing one of them.

    I haven’t heard of this, but it could be that the Tzaddik’s havtachah only works when he is alive. See שיטה מקובצת בבא קמא נ.

    יכשל בו זרעו. ואף על גב דמת בנו בצמא, מכל מקום לא נכשל באותו דבר ממש. ולרבינו נראה לפרש אמרתי כלומר השמעתי דבר זה לפני הקדוש ברוך הוא, והם דבר שנצטער בו וכו’, והסכים הקדוש ברוך הוא לדבריי, שכן דרכו של הקדוש ברוך הוא שמסכים לסברת הצדיקים שבדור. וכשמת בנו בצמא, כבר מת ר’ חנינא.

    I believe (just misvara, not based on evidence) that when a great scandal like this happens, it DOES lead to positive change. Not necessarily in the whole Chareidi world, but definitely in the place of the scandal. And the latest scandal was so far reaching that I think that the positive changes will also be far reaching, IYH.

    This is so obvious that it should not need saying. But the fact that Hashem chose to command us to use certain gems does not tell us anything about their medicinal properties. Who are we to make any assumptions about why Hashem tells us to do anything?

    Common Saychel, I understand that these companies create a painful association for you. I did not mean to belittle the way you feel. I was just wondering if there is a religious/logical reason to boycott companies with bad histories, as opposed to an emotional one.

    I don’t really understand the reason for boycotting companies who were once owned by wicked people who used them for wicked things. All these reshaim are in Gehinnom now. Do they really get any nachas from the business which they use to own doing well? I am not talking about companies who are perpetrating evil in the present. That is another matter.

    I don’t have any advice but mazal tov for your sefer!

    Actually, one way of publicising your sefer could be to upload it to Hebrewbooks and/or to Otzar Hachochma. Anyone who has either of these two will have access to your sefer and you can use them as a reference. Just a suggestion.

    Hatzlacha
