    Rav ovadiah Yosef says co-ed yeshivah high school is better than public school, for communities that can only support one school. There are number sh’ut seforim that discuss it.

    To the op, Shmuely yanklowitz has said in an interview I heard that when he covered a second time it was more chareidi (his words), and he was living in Lakewood before moving more towards open Orthodoxy?.

    On a side note, how about the Whitehouse officially not mentioning 6 million Jews killed in the Holocaust because “all innocent people suffered” during the Holocaust. I voted Trump, but that statement Literally sounds like a Holocaust deniers prepared it.

    It’s time for the truth, just about everyone pasken like R Shlomo Zalman ztl, and is machmir unless it’s tzarich gamur. Does Rav Dovid hold you can never use a shabbos elevator? ( And a shabbos elevator is really the same as a regular elevator in the case you are discussing due to not pushing buttons).

    Not looking for anything to in depth, they have an english Rav zadok on the parsha series. I thought maybe he says something in there could help.

    Joseph, no. I’m saying some rishinom don’t hold that there is a strict “halachic line” of calf, knee, above knee, ECT…, that hold its dependent up to a point, and when the gemmarah refers to calf it was not to give halacha definition. I know that is not the halcha. They all to my knowledge hold a tank top would not be allowed as well.

    The only difference is a borderline case, “at the knee” that when your sitting might be iffy. Some people have said that is clearly assur, I’m saying we pasken it’s assur.

    Ym moderator 29, that is specifically not the context of the sources I gave. What you are saying is the Sevara to argue, (Wich is the psak we accept) and is based on the language and names of the parts of the body the gemarra uses. But other rishinim and achronim specifically do not distinguish above the calf, knee, above knee, ECT..

    Clarification: upper arms and Above the calves

    Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 75:1 talks about how tznious is dependent to your surroundings

    Rashi in Kesubos 72a includes calf as such a case, Kaf Hachayim 75:2 includes calf and arms, and I believe Rav Moshe also includes calf and arms as depending on your community but I need to double check. ( They all say body/low neckline is always ervah).

    Bottom line it is not completely clearly Assur by chazal, there are many more sources who hold arms and knees are not always ervah.

    Lilmod ulamemaid, Previous posts address halacha of tznious, please provide sources for where chazal state above knees and above elbows is completely Assur.

    I’ve read a few OO psakim and articles, and often they justify new interpretations of halacha with Rav zadok and Rav gershon henoch leiner, saying they claim we have a better, or more atune understanding of halacha for our generation than previous doros, and we should trust our instincts. I’m assuming that’s the wrong way to understand Rav zadok. Hoping g someone here knows what Rav zadok was actually saying, his writing is difficult and as I’ve tried to go through his seforim on my own.

    People are more aware and sensitive of what they are saying when there is a specific person that they are directing their comments too. It easier to understand insulting a person is mean. “The kollel world” isn’t a person, it’s more of a culture, and easier to not think about people a comment might hurt.

    Granted he insulted an entire segment

    Open Orthodox say they follow all “Cardinal Precepts” very carefully and even more than most. because they take more rishonim into account.

    It’s time for truth, maybe just repost the references with no comments that may be deemed offensive

    I saw the letter from the moetzes hagedolah about OO, is that what you are referring to by stating “OO has been declared off-the-map of Orthodoxy” by rabbanim?

    Again, looking for ideas of where to review hassidus sources that discuss halachic process or yerdos hadoros. Let’s try to stick to names of seforim or peirushim

    in all honesty, assuming a person is to smug to have a reasonable conversation before even giving them a chance is pretty awful. Avi k made a nasty comment, but it was not to anyone in particular. If addressed him directly he would probably be more tame. Thats human nature in a one on one conversation, let’s assume he has basic human decency.

    10 to 15 years is along time, especially when compared to historically marrying and working at 17.

    Avi k, are you saying Rav zadok and isbizca really would support the changes being suggested? Or Rav Kook would support such ideas and changes? Or are their statement s just vauge enough for many interpretations

    Twisted, I think Avi k was saying full time learning as part of the yeshivish world, is also a new idea,

    Open Orthodox basically does not believe there is Torah Hashkafa. They openly say that we should find a way to make Torah reflect what we feel is right, and follow or own moral senses. Example, find a way to have women rabbis, activily support homosexual right to marriage, ECT…

    They openly say they do these things because they are the right thing to do, therefore do it. And just because the Torah seems to not support it, look harder and be more creative and you’ll find a support

    oo articles often site Rav zadok and radzin about historical development of halacha (different applications by gedolim for each for), and Rav zadoks “different take” on yeridos hadoros (we have some meilos to previous Doris) to justify their own reinterpretation of halacha and hashkafa. I’m curios if any in the coffee has gone through of radzin hassidus and can clarify what they are actually saying. I am assuming oo is off the mark
