Yes….unless you side with those poskim who say it is assur.
what is the question?
There is no evidence that Germany is Amalek, and all the evidence that exists from Tanach and midrashei chazal suggest the exact opposite. Amalek had that kind of destructive power, that kind of power is found only in those nations who serve as the basis of our exiles, like Rome and Bavel, or Mitzrayim. Everywhere Amalek is mentioned they only do collateral damage, damage to the fringe groups, or serve as a possible, but never actual, serious threat and danger. It is much more likely that groups like Hamas, PLO, Hezbollah, etc are Amalek.
Cute, so now you will say that bc the Kohen Gadol wore a certain garment all garments of that sort are holy? I truly hope you were joking.
There is nothing holy about Yiddish, a Gemanic based language. And there is nothing holy about Ladino, a Spanish based language. And anyone who says there is is an ignoramus of unbelievable proportion who neither comprehends kedusha, or why Hebrew is holy to begin with.
And black and white are not holy colors, nor are hats of any kind, suits of any kind, ties of any kind, or shoes of any kind. And the Torah doesn’t believe in magic underwear either.July 24, 2018 2:56 pm at 2:56 pm in reply to: Does the name “Lashon haKodesh” imply that it is the only holy language? #1563855
It is also important to note, that Hebrew is not called Hebrew anywhere in Tanach, or Ivrit. It is called Yehudit (see Melachim 2, 18:26. And note in the same place that the Jews didn’t speak Aramiac at that time).
And although some claim it is called lashon hakodesh because it contains no foul words, well for one thing it does, as in the expression עבודת גלולים, which means “dung worship”. What Rambam says is that it contains no words that are directly related to marital relations or to those parts of the body used for marital relations.
But more likely it called the holy tongue because God used it, so to speak, to create the world, and God is called Kadosh.July 24, 2018 2:49 pm at 2:49 pm in reply to: Does the name “Lashon haKodesh” imply that it is the only holy language? #1563850
Yes. Although Rebbe Nachman claimed that the with the Zohar, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai raised the level of Aramaic to a level of holiness that is comparable to Hebrew. But that is his personal chiddush, not chazal’s.May 15, 2018 1:46 am at 1:46 am in reply to: Would you let your children listen to non-jewish music? #1520655
