Ah, it’s a goyisheh calendar. Doesn’t count…
What about davenning from a smartphone instead of a siddur? Either in shul or at a make-shift minyan where there are no siddurim. Is that a bizoyon?
In this case it is obvious that the Beis Din is beyond reproach. The seiruv was signed by five leading rabbonim, not just three. And it is even posted for everyone to see. Beyond that, the seiruv specifically says that the agunah “is hereby granted permission to take whatever appropriate steps are necessary to extricate herself from the chains of this agunah status”.
But I still don’t understand where is the me’agen’s family?
In the seiruv itself, issued by five rabbonim of the Beis Din of Agudos Harabbonim, it says (and I quote from it -it’s posted on the site of the organization organizing the rally): “Several Gedolei Yisroal have spoken to him about this matter” and it goes on. It is clear from that passage that many rabbonim have examined this matter.
What struck me even more was that the rabbonim turned to “any person who has the ability to influence him…will be the fulfillment of a great mitzvah”. All the loshon is so strong that I wonder–if he doesn’t listen to the Beis Din, what about his family? Shouldn’t they be stepping in before me?
I hear in Israel they now have bamba donuts. Imagine that! It’s filled with peanut butter and topped with several babmas.
Boro park girl, I know someone who won’t eat shwarma because the name grosses him out. 😉
Doesn’t anyone play the harp?! “Benevel asoir zamru loy”!
I play clarinet and trumpet.
How appropriate to have a discussion about Matisyahu when chanuka is just around the corner! 😉
