The slichos of the first night contain the words ?????? ????? and ??????, so it is not appropriate to say it in the morning.
In a multi-week scenario the same Selichos are said on the second Sunday. I don’t recall any midnight Selichos for the second Sunday.
FL-122 discusses copyrights in regards to recipes. (I have no idea what FL stands for.)
For further information about copyright, see Circular 1, Copyright Basics. Note that if your recipe has secret ingredients that you do not want to reveal, you may not want to submit it for registration, because applications and deposit copies are public records.
Deposit requirements depend on whether a work has been published at the time of registration:
- If the work is unpublished, one complete copy
- If the work was first published in the United States on or after January 1, 1978, two complete copies of the best edition
- If the work was first published outside the United States, one complete copy of the work as first published
- If the work is a contribution to a collective work and was published after January 1, 1978, one complete copy of the best edition of the collective work or a photocopy of the contribution itself as it was published in the collective work
My point was that Kashering off the seasoning requires less than Kashering a griddle that became non-kosher in its use.
Dash, my Rav told me that’s enough.
But he was talking about Kashering off the factory seasoning which is applied as a liquid and not heated directly on a flame. For such an application Libbun Kal is enough.
A griddle sounds like it would need libun gamur. Put it in a self clean oven on self clean, for an hour.
Is that hot enough? Self cleaning ovens heat to about 500 Celsius but incandescence only starts at about 525 Celsius. This seems like self cleaning ovens would only be good for Libbun Kal.
I never put a skillet in self cleaning oven to see if it would glow.
So is it a good thing or a bad thing if the sheitel covers the knees?
It depends if it just covers the knees or reaches 4 inches past the knees.September 9, 2014 4:24 am at 4:24 am in reply to: Would you rent your apartment to a financially stable divorcee? #1031869
The federal fair housing act prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender and familial status.
But there is an exception for owner-occupied buildings with four or fewer rental units.
I’d be extremely hesitant to do business if the only payment method accepted is bitcoin.
Yes, but it might require Libbun Gamur.September 1, 2014 3:18 am at 3:18 am in reply to: How can I contact or meet the Kalover Rebbe in Brooklyn? #1030895
He’s currently in Brazil but you can call his Shul at 718-782-4553 to make an appointment.
Dear YW Key Master, it would be very helpful to many of your users to switch the CR to a Mobile Friendly platform. We would really appreciate it. Thank You!
Switching platforms is not trivial. Better to wait until bbPress
has better mobile support and then bug the admins to upgrade.
Cell phones in the US work on a different frequency range than in Israel so it also needs to be a world phone, eliminating the cheap phones.
Don’t bother with an unlocked phone unless he wants to use it with multiple carriers. He should just get a phone from the provider he intends to use.
He never memorized the speed of light, his reasoning being that it was a waste of effort for something printed in every physics book.
yentingyenta: What’s wrong with using the contact us email?
Apparently it’s as effective as the “Contact YW” link.
Actually, the way WP works is that the site name is a setting.
There is a big difference between how sites should be coded and how they actually are coded.
I’ve seen enough programs that look for “C:Windows” when they should be looking for “%SystemRoot%”
I wouldn’t be surprised if the URL is hardcoded too many times in the site, so making any changes would break too many “features”.
And more specifically, did use of YWN+/CR go down after the Big Event and/or follow-up events?
Get the timeline straight. The Big Event was cancelled in February of 2008 (http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/news/general/14875/exclusive-lipa-schmeltzer-backs-out-of-big-event-concert.html) but the coffeeroom only opened in June of 2008.
Some are paper.
The likelihood of them being paper depends on what region it is manufactured in. Asian hats are likely to be made of paper (toyo or shantung) while American (North or South) hats are likely straw.
By the way, did you know that you apparently don’t have a profile?
It’s because he’s an anav.
Assuming that the content was “demeaning Torah, halacha and gedolim” I was just quoting the aforementioned Rabbi’s response to R’ Ovadia Yosef’s psak.
If the quote is what I think it is, it just shows Bar-Hayim’s narrow-mindedness. While I usually don’t quote the Forward on YWN, I think they got this one right:
Ever heard of R’ David Bar-Hayim?
Is that your best example? He isn’t Ashkenazi, what he practices is what he believes was practiced before the exile.
What if someone gets ideas from the hoax?
An idea isn’t enough, they’d have to get a drug that’s powerful enough to knock someone out but still be able to handle it without hazmat gear.
I think much of orthodoxy is in the same position as you. He is associated with JTS but was more traditional then them. Since they can’t accept or reject him, they simply ignore him.
I Thought it was Tikun Middos HaNefesh, not Mivchar HaPeninim. As far as the wording goes, the Hebrew translations came later.
Sam, chukas akum? 🙂
Seriously, what issur?
Orach Chaim 96 discusses holding objects while praying.
The Rambam is quoting Ibn Gabirol. The work known today as Orchos Tzadikim is primarily based on Ibn Gabirol.
how do you block the radio from a ipod nano 7th gen
Fill the headphone jack with epoxy and only listen with a bluetooth headset. The radio cannot be used without a headphone wire as an antenna.June 25, 2014 9:01 pm at 9:01 pm in reply to: Doing teshuva for forgotten debts and personal wrongdoings #1100113
I do worry about items that come from tzedaka campaigns – am I obligated to pay for the book – even if I didn’t want it, and my budget doesn’t include books.
(b) Any merchandise mailed in violation of subsection (a) of this section, or within the exceptions contained therein, may be treated as a gift by the recipient, who shall have the right to retain, use, discard, or dispose of it in any manner he sees fit without any obligation whatsoever to the sender. All such merchandise shall have attached to it a clear and conspicuous statement informing the recipient that he may treat the merchandise as a gift to him and has the right to retain, use, discard, or dispose of it in any manner he sees fit without any obligation whatsoever to the sender.
Most MP3 players with radios are FM only while most news stations are on the AM band.
It doesn’t bother me that they have overhead, but if someone else can do the same job with less overhead, that’s where my money will go.
Why would someone in this category not give just because there is a fancy campaign? If it is a worthwhile tzedaka, what does the fancy campaign have to do with anything? If anything, they should be happy that a worthwhile tzedaka is getting its name out.
I’m not saying that all my tzedakah is lishmah but I want as much of it as possible to be used for whatever the goal of the organization is.
How do the international sports work do they all speak spanish (brasil)or english?
Why would they speak Spanish in Brazil? Just about any international sport has rules regarding language.
1. English, Spanish, French and German are the official languages of FIFA. English is the official language for minutes,
correspondence and announcements.
2. Members are responsible for translations into the language of their Ccountry.
3. English, Spanish, French, German, Russian, Arabic and Portuguese are the official languages at the Congress.
Qualified interpreters shall translate into these languages. Delegates may speak in their mother tongue if they ensure
interpretation into one of the official Congress languages by a qualified interpreter.
4. The Statutes, Regulations Governing the Application of the Statutes, the Standing Orders of the Congress,
decisions and announcements of FIFA shall be published in the four official languages. If there is any divergence in the
wording, the English text is authoritative.
So that’s pretty choshuv for yu
Most people don’t realize how much YU contributed to American (and world) Jewry by helping to bring European Gedolim to America.
The majority of children will not be eligible.
I don’t have the numbers but find this hard to believe. In most of the country schools are located in the residential neighborhoods they serve but in Lakewood many schools are located in industrial zones or other municipalities.
And many of those who are will have intolerably long rides,
I don’t believe that either. What makes bus rides long is the number of stops, not the distance traveled. Even with reduced bussing, Lakewood will still have much more eligible students per square mile than the national average.
My first post didn’t make it through, apparently due to the link so here it is again but without the link.
The YU website lists him as a Rosh Yeshiva but I’ve been told he was only a Visiting Scholar because he was still Rosh Yeshiva in Grodna.
The only letter I saw has no letterhead and no signatures. Are there any other letters out there?
Also, being that the letter encourages all students to be transported by car it can’t be an accurate reflection of what will happen if some children are denied bussing.
Halacha: Stand while a Sefer Torah is carried.
Minhag: Stand while the Aron Kodesh is opened.
Chumrah: Stand for the entire Kriyas HaTorah.
Shtus: Stand for Obama’s prayer.

When I first searched Google for oicture, this thread was the 9th result for oicture. Now it is the 7th result for oicture. I wonder how long until it’s the first result for oicture.
What’s an oicture?
Establish a permanent residence in a Sefardi community. The big question is what community has the halachic status as a Sefardi community.

I’m not sure what your point was, but entirely covering the knees is halachah. Tefach is regarding krias shema, and hair covering according to R’ Moshe (which is misunderstood by many, as an aside).
I’m going to hijack this thread to ask the following. What is the source that a women must cover in public, that which needs to be covered for a man to say Shema in her presence?
The way to accurately tell time at night is with star charts, almanac, and astrolabe. I don’t think the general population had easy access to these items.
Of course I did, that’s why it was in blockquote tags, but I don’t recall anything objectionable.
My earlier post on the importance of towels didn’t make it through. Maybe due to copyright issues but I can’t be certain.

Aren’t there rules about starting new threads on existing subjects? Please close this thread.
the rule that Rav vs. R’ Yochanan halacha keR’ Yochanan would pasken that maariv is in fact a chov
The rule only applies when the gemara brings down the disagreement.
