    NKChosid612, you can accept the mitzvah of yishuv eretz yisroel without accepting the medina. They don’t say to leave EY because you don’t agree with the medina.

    HaKatan, don’t dismiss the sevora. Rav Chaim Shlita who says it is a mitzva to vote most probably because of this sevara in order to have control againsr the rashoim who do things against the Torah by creating a majority over them.

    klugeryid checks things out for himself. The question in Binyan Tzion 170 was about learning about an illness by autopsy for other similar illnesses that might occur.. Saving an individual through transplant is OK see the above Noda Beyehudah.

    I have to apologize to ubiq and klugeryid as I misread the teshuvas Binyan Tzion who argues on the Noda Beyehuda forbidding doing an autopsy even if the person is around to save another life because he is exempt of all mitzvos

    This psak of the Binyon Tzion is hard to understand. If the deceased is patur from mitzvos than he is also patur from aveiros. I think that bizoyan hames is because of us. We are not being respectful to him. If a live father does thinks against the Torah, respect is not to listen to him. Similarly, the respect over here is to use the death person to save the person in front of us.

    The Noda Beyehuda above is in Second Volume YD 210. ubiq, The Binyan Tzion quotes this and explains that there is a difference to learn for the future or save someone being here as mentioned in the above. When it comes to abortion, see Oholas Mishna, (7,7) and the Rambam Hilchas Rotzeach (1,9) about rodaf.

    The Mahrsha says that Pharaoh picked jewish midwives hecause thet are not commanded on ibborim to be punished by beis din (only min hashomayim). The Noda Beyhuda allows to take a body part of the dead to save someone who needs it on the spot, but not for learning.

    The truth is that the Sefer Aim Habonim Samecha tells us himself not to listen to him for a different reason as mentioned on Page 162 because he did not experience what will happen after his passing whereas the Satmar Rav ztz’l did.. He explains that we say תיק’ו Eliyohu Hanovi will answer all the questions and not Moishe Rabbenu because he did not live through the times where as Eliyohu Hanovi did.

    Mitzvos given through Moishe Rabbenu, a shaluach, there is no baal tolin, but for emunah (אנכי) given directly through Hashem baal tolin applies, so the rewards for it are given this world as explained by the Sefer Peninim Yikorim in the begining of Parshas R’eh.

    Joseph, the Aim Habonim Samecha 3,12 does not say the savoro by himself, but from the Maharam Shick O’CH 70, who quotes his Rebbi the Chasam Sofer as mentioned above and a savora is min Hatorah so we need an explanation how we question his savora.

    We find:

    תלמוד בבלי מסכת יבמות דף קיט עמוד א
    אמר רב נחמן אמר רבה בר אבוה: רישא דאיסור כרת – חששו, סיפא דאיסור לאו – לא חששו. אמר רבא: מכדי הא דאורייתא והא דאורייתא, מה לי איסור כרת
    מה לי איסור לאו!

    Does Rovo hold that punishment does not matter or people transgress the lesser easier so the chazal where more choshesh on it? The fact that he indicates that they are both min haTorah seems to tells us that punishment should not matter.

    This logic was the reason, I heard in the first place, that the religious decided to join the Knesses. If the religious will not join, the non-religious will be able to do what they want.

    Joseph, the Mahram Shik ztz’l brings it from his rebbi the Chasam Sofer. A savora is min Hatorah, We,must question the savora without a proper answer (upfregen). Rav Teichtal ztz’l was considered a gadol died ak”h 1944 Hy”d.

    שו”ת מהר”ם שיק אורח חיים סימן ע

    אבל אני קורא דברי חכז”ל בבא בתרא סוף פרק חזקת הבתים דף ס’ ע”ב, מיום שחרב בית המקדש דין הוא שנגזור על עצמינו שלא לאכול בשר וכו’, אלא שאין גוזרין על הציבור אלא אם כן רוב הציבור יכולין לעמוד וכו’. ושוב אמרו, דין הוא שנגזור על עצמינו שלא לישא אשה ולהוליד בנים, ונמצא זרעו של אברהם אבינו כלה מאליו, אלא הנח להם לישראל וכו’. ולשון זרעו של אברהם אבינו כלה הוא תמוה.
    וביאר מרן הגאון בעל חתם סופר זצ”ל על פי מדרש פרשת שמות [שמו”ר א’ י”ג] כשגזר פרעה אותו גזירה עמד עמרם וגירש אשתו, עמדו כל הצדיקים וגרשו את נשותיהם, אמרה לו מרים גזרתך קשה משל פרעה, שפרעה גזר רק על הזכרים וכו’. ואמר מרן זצ”ל, דהנה הקדוש ברוך הוא כרת ברית עם אבותינו לקיים זרעם אחריהם ולתת להם נחלת ארץ ישראל. והנה, אם ישראל יגזרו על עצמן שלא להוליד בנים, ודור הולך ואין דור אחר בא, ויש לחוש שח”ו יכלה זרעו של אברהם אבינו, יהיה השי”ת מוכרח להושיע ישראל ולהשיב בנים לגבולם. אלא שכל זה אם כל הקהל יעשו כן, אבל אם רק הצדיקים והכשרים יעשו כן והרשעים ישאו להם נשים, אם כן שוב אין הקדוש ברוך הוא מוכרח, שהרי גם הרשעים זרע אברהם. ואם כן רק זרע הצדיקים יכלו ויתמו וזרע הרשעים ישארו ויעמדו, ואז יהיה רע בכפליים. וזו כוונת הגמרא דין הוא שנגזור על עצמינו שלא לישא וכו’ ואם כן זרעו של אברהם אבינו כלה, וזה אי אפשר, ויהיה הקדוש ברוך הוא מוכרח להושיע לנו, אלא הנח וכו’, משום דהפושעים והקלים לא ישמעו לנו וישאר זרע ישראל מהם. וזה היה כוונת עמרם כשגירש את אשתו, כדי שכולם יגרשו וכנ”ל וממילא יהיה גאולה לישראל, אמנם רק הצדיקים גירשו ושאר דלות העם קיימו נשותיהם, לזה אמרה גזרתך קשה משל פרעה, שאדרבה גזרתך קשה כיון שרק הצדיקים גירשו נשותיהם ויתכלה ח”ו זרע צדיקים, ורשעים יתרבו, ולכך צעקה ואמרה גזרתך קשה משל פרעה, ודפח”ח.

    There is an issur cheftza and an issur gavre. If the issur is on the cheftza than unintentional is also punished, whereas shabbos that is an issur gavre, so shogag where he should have known requires to bring a chatos but misasek not.

    Chana said that Hashem will see. Samuel (1,11) One way or another He will see. In Tractate Brochas 32. The Torah has to be true. It says that a women who hides herself by giving the impression that she is commiting adultary, must drink the bitter water to verify if truly she did it. If she was accused falsely, she will bear children. So Chana could make it look that she commited adultary and thereby drink the water and have children.

    Sometimes the chazal assered more the less severe, Yom Tov over Shabbos by muktza, because he might desecrate it more. Ramban Hilchas Yom Tov (1,17) see Mishneh Lamelech.


    Reb Eliezer
    Participant

    Yom Tov malochos with admonishment is malkus, Yom Kippur is kares and shabbos is skilah.
    Similarly, the number called up for laining indicates this severity. Chal Hamoed 4,Yom Tov 5, Yom Kippur 6 and shabbos 7. A rabibinic prohibition is chayev misah. Explains R’ Yanoson Aibshutz ztz’l, the chazal are protectors of the palace of the King who have the right to shoot intruders on the spot.

    When they change the name of a sick person as mentioned in the RMA above, he turns into a different person.
    The Ben Ish Chai explains that the parable sayers said let’s go to Cheshbon and conquer the city of Sichon. What connection does it have to accounting of our sins? The question is, how can you conquer Sichon when he took over Maov whom you are not suppose to touch? Once he took it over, it became a new entity. Similarly, once we do teshuva we come a new entity.

    Sam Klein, we find knowledge among the goyim. We can apply Ericson’s theory of child development together with the Rambam in Perek Chelek. There are stages of development which come with obstacles. We mature when we can overcome the obstacle for that stage. There are levels of the neshomo. The obstacle is the yetzer horah. When we defeat it, we are given a higher level of the neshomo as the yetzer horah cannot be stronger from what the neshomo can take. The Rambam says that different stages have different desires.

    Shabbos is the foundation of Judaism. If you destroy the foundation, you destroy the whole building,
    therefore the punishment is greater. If someone is mechaleh shabbos after admonishment, we can’t drink from his wine.

    If someone has bulmus, hunger pang, we feed him the lighter sin. For shabbos its a sakonoh, so we slaughter for him rather give him naveloh. There is an argument between the RMA and Mechaber if shabbos is hutra or hudcha. If there is sakonoh on shabbos, if there is a goy around according the RMA use him, but according to the Mechaber you don’t need to. It is a actually a mitzva to use a talmid chacham, so that people should not learn from it. SA O’CH (328,12)

    There is mashal on this, where a king tells his servants to grow a garden of flowers. They get paid on the work they do. Some are more worthy than others, so they get paid more for it; The king does not tell them the pay for each because he wants a nice mix and not one or two types, but if they would know the pay for each, they would only plant the higher paid ones. Similarly. when it comes to mitzvos. Hashem, wants us to perform a mix because we don’t understand the effect it creates above.
