Ok. Now that you have it clear, I hope , can anyone in the CR reminisce for a moment about the Derech Halmiud of the great Gaon Reb Aharon Kotler whose yahrzeit just came by. While you RE mention Harav Fuerst’s sefer and Rav Keshet in Yesodei Hachakira etc. But what about Harav Zevin ? Many thanks
Ok OD . Now the part about Musar and Chassidus. In Chabad it is Tanya from the AR. In Litvishe it is Mesilas Yesharim by Ramchal. In Torah Vadaas they learned Kuzari and Moreh Navuchim. What about you RE?
So you learned by the Hudhauzer, Harav Leibovitch?
RE did you learn by Rav Tyrnauer?
You can’t leave out Ger which was established by the Gaon and Baki, Reb Moshele Ruttenberg who brought the derech straight from Reb Meir Shapiro of Lublin. The Litvishe chakira is considered something the Litvakes do. As they say in Chabad, a Litvak is a Litvak. In Ungarin, they learned Noda Biyehuda and the Tumim etc.
Why does the Shemoneh Esrei begin with the Avos but Mizmor 29 talks about the Mabul as the beginning of Malchus?
Vos zogt ihr Reb Leizer?
Reb Dovid, do you know the shoresh of Dovid and it’s meaning?
Secondly, the piel form of sh-ch-s is used in reference to Hashem Yisborach. The niphal is used for the land and the hiphil is used for the people.
Contrast this with healing where the doctor is piel and Hashem is Kal sometimes with and sometimes without a dagesh,?
How can it be a piel?
It would then be active voice not passive.
Here it is passive voice,the earth was corrupted.

Now you attack Lindsey. But he gave you community control, undercover cops dressed as Chassidim be and much much
more . Beame was a shul goer. He davened in the Brooklyn Jewish Center with Rabbi Levinthal who was a son of Rav Levinthal from Philly.
I think the major OU Rabbonim and Gedolim were extremely pro Hilary Clinton. I would assume that they are pro Biden as well.
Are you assuming Bedikas Chametz is derabanan or min Hatorah.? Is linkage to a prohibition a valid mechayev on women for mitzvos min Hatorah, derabanan,both,or neither? Thanks for responding. A Good and Gebentched year.
Are you saying that women are patur from hilchos hachag bechag because it is zeman grama? As it says vayedaber Moshe etc. And also are you saying 30 days before Pesach women are patur,? Let me finish with Bedikas chametz. Is that zman grama ? Expect some nice bekiyus and charifus?
By the way ,are women chayav in shnayim Mikra?
Does zeman grama exempt women from a mitzvah derabanan?
A lot of proofs but let’s hear what you have to say please.
A quick question of which is worse? Appointing a woman for a serarah or a man dayan that is not a rachman? Or are they equal aveyras?
I am happy you mentioned Salanter. My cousin graduated from the first class in 1932,and my dad a”h in 1937.While my dad went on to MTA,the vast majority went to public. Young Israel’s were strong then.As a matter of fact great Rabbis ran the Young Israel’s. Like Reb Mendel Gettinger and Rav Paretzky and the American Chofetz Chaim ,Dr. Stern,and Rabbi Mirsky and so many more. Many Roshei Yeshiva and Gedolei Torah grew up in YI. More to follow…
As far as your rubric is concerned , the Holy Yeshiva of Telz agreed with that principle. Therefore it had a first shiur where they learned…… a second shiur until you got to the highest shiur. Other Yeshivas were only one shiur. Before the yeshivas were set up you had a kloiz where people just sat and learned indiscriminately. Yeshivas Reb Yitzchak Elchanan had by far the greatest Roshei Yeshiva in America and maybe the world. Even the Satmar Rav would send his best Talmidim to know what was being said in Yitzchak Elchanan. They came in full regalia.
The כסף נבחר was almost as popular as the קיצור שולחן ערוך from the Ungvarer Rov. It has a haskama from The Chasam Sofer as well as the Lemberger Rav Reb Yitzchok Schmelkis who is the great grandfather of Nat Lewin the Constitutional Lawyer.
I think a good idea to get started is to learn אלו מציאות or המפקיד or maybe תפילת השחר and see how it goes.
Dear CA we need some Baalei Mussar to explain the Gemara of Shaul. was it מדה כנגד מדה or עבירה גוררת?
Dear CA. many thanks for responding. My grandmother used to say א מאל רחמנות קען זיין אכזריות. You seem to concur. BTW is your Sefer SA from the Chevron Rosh Yeshiva Rav Cohen?
Let me thread the needle for you. We tell the witnesses that by doing their part they will be showing their trustworthiness. Because if they refuse it might be said that they are not shtark in what they testified and are backing out. So in response to the question of what to do the answer is we give them chizuk. Farshteyst?
The significance lies in the assumption that the witnesses are telling the truth to the extent that they will have to take his life based on their own testimony. Klal Yisrael following the Witnesses also have to show that they believe in the system. Therefore killing the protagonist has a by product in addition to removing the evil. It also shows our belief that אלוקים נצב בעדה.
Let me suggest this for you. The din is that on something that is assur you don’t bentch. Now if you have chazir as the issur, is it the same as something that is stolen and is assur? see what I am trying to say ?
Thanks for your הבנה and by corollary the minimizing of the Brisker derech. Would it be safe to say that you dispute the statement that רב חיים האט אופגעבראכען ש”ס. ? BE
Are you saying that the 2 dinim דרך הלימוד of Reb Chaim Brisker refer to the din on the gavra and the din on the cheftza?
And are you also saying that without Brisker Torah you can not have 2 dinim and also you could not define Gavra and Cheftza?
I will try to conceptualize this dichotomy for you depending on your havanah.
My father ע”ה who was a musmach of Yeshiva U. wore a straw hat in the summer . They come in many colors you know. I have the black straw homburg as well as more casual ones. My grandfather a”h who was an Agudist wore a flat top boater. There were RY in YU who wore straw as well as Gedolei Haposkim who do as well.
It is almost 100 years since RMS started the DY. Ger was in favor but Chabad was nod. I know they make siyumim in Chabad Yeshivas quite often. While I never spoke in learning with him some people believe that I am a תלמיד of Rav Mentlick. z”l. Harav Rivkin z”l was the masmich and menahel of Torah Vodaas where the Rebbe RMMS was very revered. I was friendly with his einekel who was also a descendant of the Buffalo Rov and many admorim .
הנותן תשועה למלכים……is printed in Russian based siddurim and then rolled over to America. They referenced the Tsar . So it was before communism. I never saw a siddur where the Bolsheviks or Mensheviks were blessed. The Hungarian siddurim did not have the prayer. Phillipp Birnbaum who was from Wilmington Delaware printed it in his Siddur. That is where Joe Biden hails from. more later
As far as the changes in ד and ז etc. do you know why there is this difference and also which came first. It seems that these things should be clarified. Otherwise it is מלתא בלא טעמא.
In Boro Park in the 50s and 60s Rav Karp and Rav Elberg learned the daf in the Agudah. Rabbi Schwartz said a daf in the Young Israel. That is how they learned. I dont remember Harav Singer saying a daf but he gave a shiur in the Sfardische Shul.In the Bronx of the 70’s they learned the daf in Rav Charlop’s Young Israel of Mosholu. In Pelham there was a daf by the Vaad Harabonim in Rabbi Bulka’s shul. In the Gerer shtibel on 91st Street they learned the daf before leining. They also had a daf by Shochetman attended sometimes by RAK.
To RE et al. reminds me of administrative judges in NY who are not bound by precedent or stare decisis. By us there is Mesorah . Rashi learns the reverse that Yiftach is like Shmuel not the other way around. What do you say?
Vis. a vis Eretz Yisrael. Vishnitzer chasidim are not allowed outside the green line.
The main objective is Ahavas Yisrael.
Specifically וישמעו רחוקים ויבואו.
There is a special nusach of davening.
They concentrate on הכל יודוך etc.
There are 2 main groups. Monsey and Eretz Yisrael. Now Boro Park as well.
They wear the bow of the. kapelyush on the opposite side of most.
The Rebbe’s family name is Hager.
The Bronx was blessed to have Rav Mendel Chodorov who was a close relative of Vishnitz. He gave the Hashgacha on Goodmans Matzah.
Vishnitz Rabbis are now related to Satmar (Rav Aharon) and other groups as well.
Is this the type of info you seek?
RE. In your conception do the 10 have to be together like a minyan to shaf the קידוש השם?
RE are you saying the פירסום is the עיקר or the mayseh itself?
Chazal say שיהא שם שמים מתאהב על ידך . This is of course based on the first פסוק of שמע. Hope this helps RE.
There is a saying be happy always.

RE שליטא I enjoy your Toyreh. But in all fairness do you consider carrying from either domain a מלאכה גרועה or חשובה?
If you are right about the logical derivation of the תולדות then you have a problem if אין עונשין מן הדין dont you think?
ok. First ביטולה זו היא קיומה. This is recognized להבדיל in management science as well . There is a whole area of leisure studies etc. enjoy. ודע כי יביאך למשפט.
Dear RE first of all where do they say Maarovos? I remember when Adas Yereim opened in Boro Park in the Margaretener Ruv’s place. It was gevaldig. Do you remember which comes first the piyut of Sukkah or of the arba minim? which is on the first night? The pasuk puts the lulav first but the Mishnah puts Sukkah first? כל טוב רב אליעזרJanuary 7, 2020 5:23 pm at 5:23 pm in reply to: מאימתי קורין את שמע בערבית משעה שהכהנים נכנסין לאכול בתרומתן #1820824
Also a yid is chayav to say שמע even in the darkness of. ערבין which is גלות. you RE are an inspiration in תורה as well as Chassidishe Toyreh.January 6, 2020 9:04 pm at 9:04 pm in reply to: מאימתי קורין את שמע בערבית משעה שהכהנים נכנסין לאכול בתרומתן #1819550
You really have a strong מסורה of Torah. What about Rav Paler.? Did you learn by him in Chasan Sofer? I am distantly related to the Ehrenfeld family and the Kraus family.But you are an Oberlander it seems. Was Rav Binyamin Gruber related to Satmar Rov’s nephew in Canarsie? He was Rav Avram Zev Gruber. Rav Shpitzer came from Bessermin I think and went to Mt. Kisco . He quoted the Shopraner Rov often as well as the Litvishe like Reb Ruven Grozovsky.January 6, 2020 6:18 pm at 6:18 pm in reply to: מאימתי קורין את שמע בערבית משעה שהכהנים נכנסין לאכול בתרומתן #1819507
What about Harav Tyrnauer?January 6, 2020 3:49 pm at 3:49 pm in reply to: מאימתי קורין את שמע בערבית משעה שהכהנים נכנסין לאכול בתרומתן #1819458
RE . you learned yet by the Hudhaizer? Reb Avram Chaim ?January 6, 2020 2:08 pm at 2:08 pm in reply to: מאימתי קורין את שמע בערבית משעה שהכהנים נכנסין לאכול בתרומתן #1819403
Dear RE. you do not disappoint. Your בקיאות is עד להפליא. May you be zoche to be mesayem with the same kochos and more. I wanted to be by the קבר של צדיק in Woodbridge. I thought in a while but my cousin was just נפטר and the משפחה is heading over as I write. We can say that שפתותיו דובבות בקבר. May we be זוכה to bring קרבנות as well. אכיר.January 6, 2020 11:57 am at 11:57 am in reply to: מאימתי קורין את שמע בערבית משעה שהכהנים נכנסין לאכול בתרומתן #1819334
The Yalkut you cited RE in the name of the Pester Rov shows the reverse. There is no connection to תמיד but rather to קרבנות in general. Also the Yalkut needs a הסבר as to why שמע is better. You are a great resource of מאמרי חזל.January 6, 2020 12:30 am at 12:30 am in reply to: מאימתי קורין את שמע בערבית משעה שהכהנים נכנסין לאכול בתרומתן #1819268
RE הנכבד. I dont want to answer you directly because this is a coffee room etc and a public forum etc. Are you saying that whether we count שמע as one mitzvah or 2 mitzvahs has any bearing on הלכה? Similarly are you saying that whether we count the תמידיןas one mitzvah or 2 mitzvahs it has any practical difference at all. No one disputes the חיוב of 2xשמע. and 2x תמיד whether they count in מנין המצוות or not? All I said was that תמיד has no night component but שמע does . So as a result the comparison Tosfos makes needs a הסבר.January 5, 2020 8:42 pm at 8:42 pm in reply to: מאימתי קורין את שמע בערבית משעה שהכהנים נכנסין לאכול בתרומתן #1819239
I see you dont like my רייד. Let me start again. Tosfos says it should be like תמיד where day is first. But it is a hard comparison because שמע has 2 options day and night and תמיד also has 2 options morning and afternoon. But the options of שמע dont match the options of תמיד. so how can the מקשן ask from תמיד to שמע. That is why I tell you that the מקשן comes with a סברא חיצונה. You also argue that in your own way by saying things like פתח יאיר and so on with your analigy to Goyim. Why should goyim be קובע the Halacha?January 5, 2020 7:24 pm at 7:24 pm in reply to: מאימתי קורין את שמע בערבית משעה שהכהנים נכנסין לאכול בתרומתן #1819223
Try this out and see if you like this . The מקשן asks let it say שחרית first.So we see that the סברא חיצונה is morning first. Let me know how you feel about that .Otherwise the מקשןcan not justify his question.January 5, 2020 5:45 pm at 5:45 pm in reply to: מאימתי קורין את שמע בערבית משעה שהכהנים נכנסין לאכול בתרומתן #1819206
The SA follows the סימנים of the טור.
A quick question which will show you that historically there were in fact transitory מקוואות. Do you have a מסורה about טבילה in Miriam’s brun? Any Hungarian ( magyar) chasid will agree?
