    The above question was asked from dodtors who said yes they should wear a mask as we don’t know enough about the immunity one has.

    I heard once that when a fish is out of water it looks likes it is jumping around like it is enjoying itself, but it is realy dying. Similarly, it looks like peoole without Torah are enjoying themselves but they are realy dying.

    שבת קט’ו,א

    The Sefer Maishv Davar (2,80) from the Netziv discusses what is considered holy to require burrial. He says that they should be sanctified for permanency. Therefore invitations and photocopies should not have to be burried as they are created for disposal after use and they should be able to be recycled separately.

    In SA O’CH 317,1 is an argument what a permanent knot is. In any case, on a garbage bag we should only tie a bow as it never be opened.

    When it comes to the oaths, the Vayoel Moshe proofs its severity from the punishment of the Bnei Elhraim leaving 30 years before the time where 200,000 were slaughtered by the Philistines. See the Targum Yanoson in the beginning of Parashas Beshalach for not leading tne Bnei Yisroel tbe shorter way.

    You know the Midrash that Hasatan is 364 as he has no control for one day.

    The Maasei Hashem explains the connection of the selling of the birthrite to the request of the lentils. Yaakov Avinu knew what was told to his mother Rivkah. The elder will serve the younger.He said, if you want me to serve you by giving you lentils, I need to be the older.

    There is a nice gematria Yisroel (541) adds up to Yaakov (182) plus satan (359) encompassing the powers of his adversary after defeating him.

    There is a saying, let sleeping dogs lie. There is a pasuk in Mishlei (26,17) quoted by the Midrash Rabba (75,3) in indicating that yaakov Avinu should have never be concerned with Aisov and fight a battle that does not apply to him like grabbing on to a dogs ear that is running away. The Binah Leitim says that vayiro Yaakov meod vayetzer lo, Yaakov Vavinu had pain that he was afraid of Aisov in the first place.

    The question is if we thank Hashem for what He gives us or who gives it to us. If a great individual gives a present, even the smallest anount is a appreciated. Similarly, Hashem judges the mitzvos we do on our level and not His what we are responsible towards Him.

    This argument about tne ACA is like the boy who kills his parents and than asks the court to have mercy for becoming an orphan. Congress eliminated the mandate and now they argue it is unconstitutiional.

    Trump was given an opportunity by Sean Hannanity to point out his second term agenda and he could not describe it. He rather wants to dismantle the ACA, first by eliminating the mandate and now the rest at the time of the pandemic.

    The Kohanim are diligent. The closer we are to Hashem, the more we can accomplish. The rebbies daven for others. Aharon Hakohen was second to Moshe Rabbenu at Mount Sinai but Korach was out for himself and his argument being kohen gadol was illogical. He never explained what makes him better than anyone else. When a person has self interest, he does not lthink logically. The Ben Ish Chai says לא יקרחו קרחה בראשם do not tear in what is infront of you. Before כהן before ‘כ’ is ‘י’ and ‘ה’ is ‘ד’ and ‘ן’ is ‘מ’ making מיד diligence.

    When it came to stop the plauge, it was Aharon who did it because that was done to heal. The Rashbam says that the katoras which kills if done by other than kohanim, heals when they are kohanim who are suitable for the avodah.

    Abba_S, you are forgetting the president is not the state that he has us believe. I will be here in the US July 9, 61 years. Having a president who lies more than he tells the truth and cares only for himself does not make me happy. If he does not want to be called by that name, he should not act like that.

    This pshat is troublesome. The Targum Yanoson says that Moshe Rabbenu worried about Yehashua because of his humility. This pshat emphasizes their gaiva and not their humility. Maybe, the Meraglim felt that they are not worthy to benefit Hashem’s intervention so they have to do everything by themselves as they have exhausted all their zechusim but the geula is not tied to worthiness as it was a promise to the Avos. Once they entered EY now they had to be worthy to keep it.

    At the time of the Jerushalmi it was improper to eat outside for talmidei chachomim but they were not pasul leeidus currently it is dangerous to eat inside with other than the family, it becomes acceptable for them to eat outside.

    What the gemora is talking about buying a sandwich and walking and eating. I don’t think seating outside on a bench and eating, a picnic with the family, is included in this restriction.

    With zos which is 408. There is a Midrash which asks what is an atonement for a sinner? The Torah says to bring a karbon like a Aharon above.

    It should above Kidushin 40,2. Sitting outside at a table is certainly not included in this restriction as the reason above does not apply.

    I reviewed the halachas in Kidushin 409,2, SA CHM 34,18 where it was considered demeaning oneself to eat on the street so they compared him to a dog and was paasul leedus. When he does not care about himself, he will not care about telling the truth. Currently this is set up for the purpose of enjoying the fresh air and even talmidei chachomim eat in this environment outside in a restaurant, so the halachas don’t apply.

    The Ksav Sofer compares the ladder to the potential of the human being who has to ability to climb step by step from ground to the heavens. This idea is indicated by Bas Paraoh’s hand growing even though she knew she cannot reach him but she did whatever she could. The Chasam Sofer interprets the pasuk of lo saaleh bemalos al mizbechi, don’t try to skip steps because then your faults will be revealed. The Mesilas Yeshorim demonstrates how to do this climbing step by step.

    Just heard repeated, if no test, no cases. Someone said, if no death certificate, he is not dead. This reminds of a story my father told me about buraeucracy. A doctor would go out to the front to declare people dead. He said on a group that they are dead. One person of tbe group says, I am alive! He is told, you shout up, the doctor said you are dead.
