    Hey DY,

    Ya, WhatsApp requires both parties to have the app.

    The Kosher Smartphones actually have Whatsapp on them

    But Heywire (and google voice) give u a US number which is with you worldwide. And is free.

    There used to be a way to send an sms to israel via google (google chat) but it didnt work for every carrier, and I dont know if it even exists today

    Best place is either newegg.com or amazon.com

    Make sure that it works with the bands of the carrier he plans on using.

    For example, HotMobile only runs on 3G, 850/2100

    What about haftorahs which appear in other haftorahs in part?

    Isn’t Haftaras V’yetzei part of Haftaras Shabbos Shuva?

    If there are two Shabbos Chanukahs, the 2nd will be miketz.

    Move it up a day (meaning if Chanukah starts on Fri). It is Motzei Chanukah which is Miketz.

    Nothing to do with a leap year.

    Think about it this way, Beraishis will always be the week after Simchas Torah.

    Leap year will only start affecting the parshios after Mishpatim.

    “Pinchas is 10.6% (a leap year when rosh hashana ws Thursday)

    Kedoshim is read 11.1 % of time”

    When do we EVER read Tazria?

    In a non-leap year it is combined with Metzora.

    In a leap year it is HaChodesh (Shmini is ALWAYS Parah in a leap year)

    Have a look at http://www.hebcal.com/sedrot/tazria

    Between 2012 and 2024 Haftaras Tazria ISN’T READ ONCE!!

    Actually, Miketz isn’t the rarest. I read somewhere that we read it an average of once every ten years. It has nothing to do with leap year.

    I believe Kedoshim/Tazria are rarer. I’m not even sure if we ever read Haftaras Tazria.

    FYI there is no such thing as Haftaras Va’yelech. If combined we do Netzavim, if separate, then it is Shabbos Shuva and we read Shuva.

    1. Pinchas (Normally when Mattos and Ma’asei are together, Haftaras Ma’atos is read during Parshas Pinchas)

    2. Miketz (Normally Miketz is pushed aside cause it is Shabbos Chanukah, but if the first day of Chanukah falls out on a Friday, Miketz is Motzei Chanukah, and its Haftara is read)

    3. Hmm, I think it is either Tazriah or Kedoshim.

    I’m not sure if there even is a Haftara for Tazria. In a regular year it is combined with Metzorah, and Haftaras Metzorah is read. In a leap year, Tazriah is Parshas Hachodesh.

    Kedoshim, when combined with Achrei Mos, Haftaras Achrei Mos is read. When seperate, if Haftaras Achrei Mos isn’t said (Shabbos HaGadol), there are opinions which state that Parshas Kedoshim still gets Haftaras Achrei Mos.

    The sefer was edited, it only had a select few of the questions which he received. And so say such a sefer is printed for no reason is out of line.

    The FDA allows companies not to list ingredients which make up less than 2% of the product.

    Just because something is LESS than 2% WILL NOT MAKE IT BITUL B’SHISHIM.

    Thus you cannot use the ingredients to prove that something is parve, it is very possible that the item is in fact milchigs.

    @yaakov doe

    That doesnt make sense on 2 levels.

    First of all, it means the person flying fist class on this miles ticket won’t earn miles on their flight, as one does not earn miles on a rewards ticket. Few people willing to shell out for a 1st class ticket will do so without getting miles in return.

    Secondly, and I am telling you this from 1st hand experience, should the flight get cancelled, the person who bought this ticket from the travel agent would basically lose their money. If you have a miles ticket and your flight gets cancelled, you get your miles back. You would not get back the money you gave your travel agent, unless the agent themselves gave it back to you.

    But either way you’d be stuck without a ticket.

    Firstly I’d like to wish you and your family much hatzlacha with this. My heart goes out to all of you.

    A few things:

    1. Try to give as much warmth and love to your son as he goes through this. Try to instill an environment where he knows that he can be open with you, no matter how difficult the situation is.

    There are many reasons why a frum victim might not name their abuser. Examples are (but not limited to) not wanting to get them into trouble, fear of revenge, fear of the backlash when he names the person, fear of speaking lashon hara, protecting the family.

    Try to show your son that none of these are reasons to be quiet.

    2. Get yourself some help. People often think that the child is the only victim. The parents also become victims. I can tell from your SN and your posts that this is unimaginably difficult for you. In the same way that you want to get your son assistance, get some for yourself.

    Good Luck

    1. There are Mitzius questions (e.g. Who was R’ Yehoshua Ben Korcha and when did he live? How old was Yitzchak at the tiem of the Akeida?) Which obviously have a right answer and wrong answers

    2. We see from this rishonim themselves. Look at some of the Rashbams in Bava Basra and see how he refers to some counter opinions (e.g. HEVEL, etc)

    3. NEVERTHELESS, we are not able to take sides. WE can’t say PLONI RISHON was wrong. We can observe from the nature of the machlokes that one is wrong and one is right, we can’t choose, and we should do our best to understand both sides and how they got to their opinion

    There is what the Ibn Ezra says and there is you application of his words.

    The 2 are mutually exclusive.

    For starters:

    1. What does he mean when he says “most”? 51%?, 70%?, 99%?

    2. What is this nature of this “rishus” he is talking about? You seem to imply that it means theft or shtick. Maybe it means missing out on mitzvos because he is too busy accumulating wealth? maybe it means his bein adam l’chaveiro is lacking cause he is too focused on his money?

    3. Is he focusing on the wealthy yidden or goyim as well? (yes, I know goyim cant steal, but this would help us with question 1, namely the percentages)

    Joseph,

    they did not ask to the extra day in shushan to “finish the job” there was no way they were going to finish the job,nor did they “finish the job”

    R’ Y. Eiybushitz says that esther asked for the extra day to show the yidden that this was not teva. and that this was all due to HKBH. Teva would just turn Haman’s day into Esther’s day, the extra day shows HKBH calling the shots

    R’ Brevda says that the extra day was done to disprove those who might say this was all in the mazalos, and that Haman got it wrong. The extra day shows that it wasn’t that Haman misread the stars, rather Hashem had a different plan

    The real question here is why on earth would someone give someone a teaching position merely as a chessed, when it is obvious that they are quite capable of destroying lives?

    Doesn’t seem like it is a concern for the wives who attend the shiur, they aren’t coming for the torah. The bigger concern here is the yeshiva guys.

    in reply to: Musar Topics for School Report #929403

    Participant

    Ideas

    1. How a real ba’al mussar is someone who can walk down the street, see something, and see the mussar in it.

    1a. and no matter how strong the mussar, if someone doesnt want to listen, they wont

    e.g. Rebbe Akiva was able to see the mussar in a rock which had a hole, yet Bilam didnt take the mussar when his donkey started to speak with him (and Bilaam decided to start arguing with the donkey)

    2. How in Pirkei Avos it says that if we claim that our nissayon was too difficult, Yosef will argue that our nossyonos werent more difficult than his. Discuss his nissayon, use some of the midrashim

    3. Just go through a piece of davening, in English, ask if we believe what it is which we are saying? Take the 1st part of Benching as an example. Do we really believe that Hashem provides? That Hashem never withholds? Do we act accordingly?

    4. Mon. The Torah was only given to people who ate Mon. What was the nissayon of the Mon? That Klal yisroel went to sleep everyday without having the next day’s portion in their possession yet. Those who tried to save a piece, didn’t succeed in doing so.

    5. End of Sefer Bamidbar, Where Reuven and Gad choose money over religion (Better place to graze cattle outside of Israel) How they werent protected, were the 1st into Galus and how they needed more arei miklat, proportionally, than the rest of geographical Israel.

    Hope this is a good start.

    @hakatan

    I’m not angry, but I do wish I weren’t wasting my time. What you could have said was that you haven’t seen it but if it is as I am quoting then whatever position you would take…rather than saying you couldn’t find it and simply stonewalling.

    1st of all, I was looking in the yalkut lekach tov last week

    today I picked up a lekach tov, but there was nothing in it for Korach until Perek YUD CHES. I’d take a pic for you to prove it but I know such a thing would not be put in the CR

    I am not stonewalling. I have been enjoying this thread, Thanks for getting me to open a chullun and learn it inside, Bava Kama with meforshim, and other perushim. And I hope I get to see the Lekach Tov soon. The point for me is not who is right, I look forward to seeing the lekach tov inside and hope I can find a lekach tov with Perek TES ZAYIN in Korach quite soon.

    I don’t understand why you sink to such a low and accuse me of disagreeing with chazal. I’m disagreeing with you. You are not Chazal, and you’ve yet to show that Chazal learn Kivan SheNitan the way that you do. If the lekach tov learns it the way that you do, namely that non sinners can get harmed solely due to the sinners (IF, cause I haven’t yet seen it inside) There are others who I’ve quoted who learn it differently. Go find the kever of the Emek Daver and accuse him of rejecting Chazal.

    2- Even if we go based upon the lekach tov and how you understand it, that would be Yidden being punished for Yidden, it is YOUR PSHAT that it can be learned from there that goyim can cause yidden to be punished due to Kivan SheNitan (Not the Lekach tov, Not Chazal, Not Gemarra in Bava Kama, YOU!!)

    You conveniently ignored the emek daver in my previous post? Why?

    Oh, and the Lekach Tov, R’ Moshe Najara, is an acharon, not a rishon, not an amora, not a tanna, and certainly not chazal. He has every right to his interpretation of Kivan She’Nitan. As does the Iyun Yaakov, the Emek Daver etc.

    So what it comes down to is that you’ve already decided what you hold and nothing anyone tells you will change that.

    I’ve looked everything up in order to understand it. Kivan SheNitan is a HUGE sugya with many varying opinions and applications. It can be a topic in its own right. But your pshat I havent seen yet outside of the CR

    and I agree,

    So what it comes down to is that you’ve already decided what you hold and nothing anyone tells you will change that

    I found a lekach tov, but for some reason it had nothing on ??? ?”?. Considering the size of the sefer I’m led to believe this is some type of printers error in this edition.

    Once I was looking, I decided to look at other perushim.

    The emek davar says something interesting on this passuk

    ????? ??? ?? ????. ??”? ????? ???? ?????? ???? ?????? ?????, ??? ???? ?? ???? ????. ???? ??? ????, ??? ?? ?? ???? ?? ?’, ?????? ????? ???? ???? ?? ?? ???? ????? ?? ????, ?????? ????? ??? ?????, ????? ??? ??? ???. ????

    Like previously stated in 14:35 by the ???? ???

    So you see he learns just like the iyun yaakov. Not like what you are saying that people get punished for the transgressions of others, rather once there is ??? being handed out, anyone can get the ??? but each will get it for their own averos, not due to the averos of others

    First of all correlation does not imply causation.

    Second of all one can take statement of chazal and try to understand what it means, when and how it applies. That in no way is a rejection of chazal

    Finally, you already misquoted the gemarra in chullun twice, so don’t be so angry that I’d like to see the lekach tov myself vs taking your word for it

    I said about a yid getting not getting punished for the actions of a goy. You’ve been the one saying that it was kivan shenitan and that he can.

    I didn’t backtrack, I still dont believe in it, I agree with you that there is a concept of kivan shenetan, I disagree with your application. It does not necessarily mean that yid can be punished cause of the goy’s actions.

    Looking in the lekach tov, but I dont see what you are talking about. The piece on the Passuk you are talking about talks about machlokes and how being silent avoids machlokes.

    @hakatan

    I have not ignored chazal. I’m explaining the words Kievan shenitan in accordance with an opinion of the gemarra. I’ve looked at the gemarra and there are numerous opinions on it. Few if any say that it means that people get “caught in the net” of the punishment of others.

    Some, like the iyun yaakov I have quoted, interpret this as meaning that it is an “eis” of din, and that anyone can be caught in it, should they have what deserves din.

    You are saying that kosher people can get punished due to the transgressions of others, and goyish transgressions can cause yidden to be punished for the goyim’s aveiros.

    The interpretation I’m applying says that the “reshaim” can cause an “eis” of din to come down, and that means that everyone gets judged at that time based upon their own behaviors.

    To summarize, there is a concept of Kievan shenetan, what does it mean and how does it apply?

    It is a major machlokes in the rishonim and achronim, and I’ve only touched the tip of the iceberg.

    Thanks for providing me with the maarei makom. I’ve looked at it, enjoyed seeing the discussion and will attempt to look at it again when time allows

    I quoted the iyun yaakov to state a point. Even if a tragedy was due to same gender marriage, it doesn’t mean that the yidden who suffered during the tragedy did so for the same reason the goy suffered.

    In the same way that the tzaddik got his punishment for his reason and the rasha got the same punishment for a different reason, one can easily say that the goy and yid got identical punishments for different reasons.

    Kevan shenitan, that means that once punishment is given out it can keep getting given out, does not mean for the same reason.

    And, unfortunately,i need to disagree with you health, the people i see blaming the same gender unions are not using sandy to try and better themselves, theyve pointed their finger and havent changed themselves one bit. Perhaps you are luckier than I and do not know the type of people whom i know. If so ashreicha.
