Rashi in Parshas Toldos says the field which Hashem blessed (meaning Gan Eden) is the “Apple Field”.
Meaning, the field is of Apples, but the Tree itself was clearly not, according to Chazal. (Fig, Grape, Esrog, Wheat). The Zohar (first meal of Shabbos) calls it “Chaqal Tapuchin Qadishin” – Holy Apple FieldJanuary 6, 2023 1:26 pm at 1:26 pm in reply to: Haredim denounce Ben Gvir Temple Mount provocation #2154524
IT’S TIME TO go up and rebuild the Holy Temple – and restore ALL the Laws to their proper lace, finally.
It’s been too long!
The Time Is Now!
Be prepared to fight for it
The Software Course is very good, great professors.
Really prepared me for my very lucrative career.
In 1 1/2 years, you get more than the goyim get in 4 years.
If you’re able to keep cheshbon, it’s really kdai.
The zoom is even better than in person, in my opinion.
Amount is a lot less than any other college, that’s for sure.
i owe these ppl my life!
@Avirah – if you wanna say EVEN a Rebbe is toraso umnaso (an excuse for working) is patur from davening – then KOL SHEKAYN a real Uman is Patur!
The gemara says bferush that “Am shebasadeh” – working ppl – do not hafta daven at all – the chazaras hashatz is for them. but, a Rebbe also? that’s a chidush – only R Shimon was like that. Most Non-workers must daven al pi halcha
The reason we dont say Tachanun by Ma’ariv – is for the “meorer dinim” reason – no source in Halacha.
Originally, Tachanun was the MAIN part of Davening – as explicit in Daniel – literally falling on the floor 3 times a day. But, because of the “meorer dinim” reason, we dont fall on the floor (the sphardim dont fall at all – the ashkenazim fall on the table – but not on the floor anymore – which is the real Halacha)
All this is because of “meorer dinim” reason.
Most Chassidim in LKWD are VERY makpid to say Tachanun, with 13 Midos, every day Shachris and Mincha – even after Shkiya.
But, i guess, fpr some since the minhag ashkenaz is to fall on the table, they extend the “meorer dinim” reason even more.
BUT EVERYONE TODAY HOLDS OF THE “meorer dinim” reason – IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER – AGAINST HALACHA!

No one answered that question – so we dont know…..
DUMBEST POLL YET!!
Well, if you use a topic that Repiublicans are sympathetic to, like Ye, who is a right wing conservative, and Trump – whaddaya expect?? Novelty, Please??
Why dont you make a poll about many other topics that Demonrats are more sensitive too and the results will LITTERALLY be the EXACT OPPOSSITE
Ashkenazim used to speak only Loshon Hakodesh on Shabbos – as evidenced by the 18th Century Song of R Levi Yitzchak of Berditchev, on Motzai Shabbos they would move back to “Loshon Ashkenaz” (it was only called Yiddish by secular nationalists at the end of 19th Century).
it represents the Human power of desire, which will eventually take over logic. Like many things, a lie is repeated often enough until it becomes true.
let’s face it. people WANT to be jewish, but they dont want to actually work for it.
This has been the CORE principal behind ALL anti-Jewish philosophies of ALL time.
Ppl can’t take the fact the Jews have a covenant with G-d, but instead of following the law and becoming part of the covenant, it’s too hard, so they decide instead to deny that anyone has this covenant. THIS, and ONLY this, has been the sole reason for Paul founding christianity in the first place.
The Ancient Greeks, if you read Apion, hated the jew for the same reason, so they said the jews are a made up ppl, with no real history. Josephus wrote an entire book, Contra Apion, to defend the jewish history of the Bible. Eventually, reality started sinking in, and if not for Paul, EVERYONE would have become jewish.
“if you can’t join ’em, beat ’em!!”
PEOPLE WANNA FEEL GOOD, WITHOUT WORKING FOR IT!!
This has nothing to do with being smart….
Smart means figuring things out – problem solving.
This is just if you happen to know something.
Who is the current PM of Pakistan? Does that make you smart?
It means you know global politics.
If someone knows the answer to these questions, it means they are knowledgeable in that subject; not smart necessarily.
The Sphardim were never Meikil, that’s just a modern lie. Ya, if they are not frum, of course there are gonna be more lenient, right? The real frum Sphardim are the most strict of all communities
The Teimani Mesorah is very questionable at best. You have any reference to them before the Rambam?
Only hostorical reference to them before that is the Himyars who took the revenge against the Ethiopians for how the byzantines were treating the jews. Not much else. The European Jewish Tradition is the MOST documented of all groups, by far.
This has nothing to do with the Dark Ages. They were primarily in Italy during that period, where they produced some of the most memorable aspects of our culture during that time. Think about ‘Midrash Tanchuma’ (written almost entirely in italy by italian geonim), Rabba and yerushalmi (who joined these italian communities after they were expelled by the byzantines). There was an expression: ‘From Bari and Lombardi will Torah come and the Word of Hashem from Toranto’. These were famous communities of the greatest rabbis of the those centuries.
The famous 4 captives who brought Torah to Spain and North Africa – were from Bari, Italy.
Just open up an Ashkenazi Machzor and see all the Piyutim of all the Holidays for throughout the year. ALL of them were written by these Italian / Byzantine (includes Egypt, Syria, Greece, Turkey) Jews during the centuries from 550 – 950 CE; who then moved north into France and Germany, The Holy Roman Empire, by the Carolingian Dynasty.
What is ‘obvious’ to you, is actually not true.
The European Communities come straight from the Roman (and later Christian) Exile.
Direct Mesorah from the Yerushalmi Talmud.
ALL of Eretz Yisrael, Egypt, Syria and Turkey, Greece and Rome Jewish Communities of 2nd temple were ALL Ashkenaz (European) Jews. There were NO Sphardim at all until about 1300 years ago.
Shimon Hatzadik was the first Ashkenazi Jew.
Besides that, the Spanish and Portuguese almost ALL moved to Europe (those that left Iberia), over the centuries after the expulsion – to the point that almost no spanish jews remained Sphardi – they almost all became European Ashkenazi. Most of the Ottaman Jews in the 1600’s and 1700’s moved to south eastern Europe – think Hungary, Romania, Chechya, Slovakia, Austria.
The Ottamans surrounded Vienna in 1683. Most Ashkenazim today are heavily sphardi. The entire jewish community of Vienna in 1718 was Ottaman.

you’re right. money is what lasts long term(usually), not much else.
Beauty, Middos and all that other stuff changes
I would answer the Q like this:
start making money young (as a skill or business) and invest young.
The chashmonoim who fought the secular jews (and eventually the Greek empire which supported the secular) were not the same ppl as those who killed the rabbis. That was their grandchildren, who were mad at the rabbis for paseling them from kehuna because of their mother being a captive.
And I’m not condoning murder, especially a random girl who did nothing. Pick on someone your own size
All I’m saying is that it’s possible for such a thing to actually be a massive kiddush hashem, in certain specific circumstances, with those who oppose actually creating the chillul hashem.
Where and when is the major question. Most corruption in religion stems from a misapplication or misunderstanding of an underlying truth.
Definition of kiddush hashem, showing that torah and hashem is important. Chillul hashem is the opposite. Doesn’t bother you? That might be a chillul hashem…….
@ aviraDar’a and his camp:
The talmud (Yevamos 90) says about the Chashmonaim (Maccabees), that they would kill jews left and right for even committing Drabanans on Shobbas, and for committing Non-Tznuis PERMITTED acts. There is a concept of Hora’s sha’a, that goes above the basic law of due process.
There were MANY times in history when we killed ppl against halacha because the situation called for it.
i know the zionists like the “Maccabees”, but according to chazal and all historians, they were fanatic jihadi terrorist murderers who were much worse than Yishai Shlissel.
it’s not so pashut. “Hora’as Sha’a shani”. its pretty scary actually……..
Adam knew everything. He saw from one end of the world to the next. Hinduism just happens to be an ancient expression of ancient religions, but you could say the same about most ancient Middle Eastern ones as well.

MDG nad ujm, look at tosfos yevamos 47b – if a master gives up hope (and every jew has inheritors [and the possessions of a ger who dies becomes hefker anyway]), then it’s like he’s mafkir him, and hamafkir avdo yatza lcherius – if you are mafkir a slave, he becomes fully jewish
first of all yannai was the son of the one who enslaved them (although according to abaye, yannai was yochanan, but it seems rava was right that yannai (yonasan) was the son of yochanan who enslaved them).
About him being Cohen Gadol, he was halachically pasul for kehuna because his mother was captured during the wars. This was the reason why Yochanan Cohen Gadol became a tzadoki after so many years (after finding out that the rabbis paseled his wife and kids). Yehuda Aristobulus, his first son, died after the first yom kippur, and then Yannai took over and spilled the water on his feet, got pelted by esrogim and crucified the rabbis. Eventually, he realized he was wrong and sold the kehuna gedolah to Martha bas baythus who gave it to her 2nd husband, Yehoshua ben gamla who restored Torah.
** – i actually have a perutah from Yannai which says on it in old hebrew “Yehonasan hakohen hagadol vchaver hayehudim”
i wanna cry over how close you are. The rabbis told Agripas, his grandson, not to cry because he is “our brother in commandments” – in other words, a slave is still better than a goy. But, they were wrong for pandering to him in a way which against halacha. Rashi says his Agrippas’ mother was jewish, but as tosfos (yevamos 47b) asks, then there should have been no problem with him being a leader, so Hordus’ wife must have not been jewish.
Tosfos in yevamos 47b asks: how come he wasnt automatically freed as soon as he forcibly became king? since a freed slave becomes a jew, he should be kosher? Answer: the owners must have not given up hope, and assumed that perhaps his haughtiness would bring his downfall. Who were his owners, if all the Hasmoneans were all killed? Answer: every jew has inheritors, no matter how far back you have to go.
Rav Kaufman, i dont mean to kauf with you, but what you are saying is what secular historians say, who KNOW NOTHING OF BASIC JEWISH LAW OR CULTURE, but yet they feel the right to talk about jewish history!
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS FORCED CONVERSION – PERIOD! IT DOESNT WORK!
Yochanan did NOT convert the inhabitants of Edom (SEE BELOW**), but rather forcibly ENSLAVED (which is worse? idk….) them, which is fine in Jewish law. The Gemara says MANY times that Herod and his family were SLAVES!
From a secular historians perspective, enslavement LOOKS like forced conversion – forced Milah and forced following of commandments – but to say “forced conversion” is simply a LIE and a perversion of jewish law and culture, instead say “forced enslavement”.
(**who were NOT edomim, btw, as the Assyrians had mixed EVERYONE up centuries earlier. The real Edomim were moved to a province in modern Turkey which the Assyrians called Idumea. From there, refugees during the Trojan war (which is controversial itself) moved into Europe, all over – like all Phoenicians who founded European civilization, but specifically founded the city of Rome (Remus and Romulus – sons of RED Mars))
You guys are all a bunch of amaratzim.
The sun is actually CLOSER to us during the NORTHERN WINTER. How come NOBODY thought about the Southern half which is ALWAYS opposite of the north?? no one even mentioned it!!
Summer and Winter comes from the 23.5 degree tilt of Earth. When south is tilted toward the sun = southern summer and northern winter, and vice versa.
basic science, come on guys and gals.
do they have minivans?
How much does it cost?
REAL yeshiva ppl, are NOT on the internet!
You are suffering from wishful thinking.
When Moshiach comes – they will be the LAST to accept him because they will say he is the Anti-xist who will be killed by their messiah.
in fact, i believe, they will NEVER accept the One G-D or Moshiach and will have to executed according to Halacha.
with all due respect – that is not right to say.
you are also only doing it as a custom of your fathers.
and its not true at all. at least not today (maybe then).
most of them came to this AZ themselves – they have a tayva for it – just like in the old days –
IT WAS NEVER BATEL a total lie! dont tell me chazal say it was batel.
with all due respect, it was never batel. AZ is just as much alive today as ever (obviously excluding the appx 35% of the world who is Muslim; [atheists 100% believe in AZ, they just dont worship it – they overpowered the gods of nature]).
i dont know what chazal meant – but definitely not the simple explanation.
Christanity is NOT a shituf – their guy is the ONLY god for them! he is the creator; meaning they dont believe in God at all. just because they use shem shamayim for their god – remeber “az huchal likro bshem havaya”.
They claim to only believe in one god – not a shituf. meaning, that person is their ONLY god!
first of all, most rishonim and the gemara holds it IS avoda zara for all – bferush. (any svara to be mchalek????????)
Second, if the overwhelming shitas hold the world is flat – does that make it flat?
the fact is that shituf is denying God ENTIRELY and is the SAME as ANY ancient avoda zara who viewed the god (sun, rain etc….) as manifestations of the supreme power.
if god is a creation, then how do you know he exists – who created him? He must be the creator of all creation. if you think he is a creation – you are ENTIRLY DENYING the creator – exactly as ALL ancient avoda zaras.
Evangelicals are the Devil’s soldiers
The sinas chinam of 2nd temple was NOT between Rabbis and tzadoqin.
We are SUPPOSED to hate the Reshaim – and even put them to death if that is according to the law of G-D.
rather, the sinas chinam of 2nd temple was BETWEEN Torah observant jews and each other.
kamtza and bar kamtza and the bal habayis were all frum jews
i was silent until i saw @Yabia Omer’s comment.
Study some Jewish history and poskim. Almost ALL Ashkenazim paskened ONLY like Rabenu Tam (in Shkiya – which im assuming you are referring to; correct if wrong plz). Maran Bet Yosef, and Rema, as well as most rishonim and achronim pasken BFERUSH like rabenu Tam – orach chaim 261 – Lkula ulchumra. And R’ Moshe who said 50 minutes wad aliba d’Rabenu Tam (otherwise its like 15-20 minutes at most). The Bach, who was against it, laments that in Krakow – the LARGEST jewish city in the world; 400 years ago! – ALL ppl there lit candles after shkiya on friday like Rabenu Tam – that was the ONLY shita. There is practically NO rishon that disagrees with him, except Mahram Alshaqar, whose only real svara is that its not the sphardi minhag – which is also the only svara of chacham ovadia to go against maran BET YOSEF orach chaim 261

HEY! WHAT ABOUT ME????
I am EXTREMELY insulted!
They had the ashes of the Parah for 300 years after the churban – it was only after the cursed Christians expelled us from the land that we lost the ashes – and MUCH more etc…
my Q is: when it’s the right time to build – how will we? the mishna in Parah says that by 2nd Temple they had ashes from that had been brought to Bavel and back (big sugya).
If we need to build in order to have parah, then we have no choice but to go up btuma. and if we DONT need Miqdash for Parah – then why cant we do it now?
The fact that the religion of Islam (which just copied the jews) does not offer sacrifices is a shtikel proof (as well as many proofs from the Amoroim and the Gemara) that the jews of post-churban did not offer sacrifices on Bamos. This kinda disproves Raavads shita, as NO ONE – including Raavad himself – brought korbonos after the churban.
remeber, if there is no kares or going on Har Habayis, there is no kares for Shita or Ha’alo Chutz – Bamos today would be permitted.
Halacha, only goyim are allowed to bring korbanos today.
I hope it happens quick – so we can start the recovery already. The next 10 15 years should as amazing the last.
why do you think using the internet is putting ppl on the right side of history?
maybe it’s the opposite
Alot of ppl focus on the husband not following halacha – but few focus on the wife (if supported) not being allowed to spend ANYTHING on her own EVEN IF SHE EARNED it, without his permission.
