The problem with my solution above is that if people are busy talking, they don’t see the others who are davening with fervor.
DaasYochid I can truly say you are a Yochid Mumcheh.
It says תהילת ה ידבר פי ויברך שם קדשו לעולם ועד says the Chasan Sofer, David Hamelech asked Hashem that when people see me davening, they should gain enthusiasm to also daven forever. This might be a solution to encourage others also to daven with fervor.
אל תווכח לץ פן ישנאך הוכיח חכם ויאהבך says the Slah Hakodash when you admonish someone do not tell him that he is a letz because he will end up hating you but if you tell him he is smart he will love you.
The Harav Abarbenel explains, when you admonish someone be careful of לא תשא עליו חטא don’t put the sin on him., but say people do this but not that “he” does it.
Moderator: The order of my posts matter. You put reply 1469551 before 1469549.
A talmid of Reb Moshe, Rabbi Tzvi Halevi Pollak, also known as the Grosswardeiner Rov.
You are not a Daas Yochid anymore.
I agree fully with DaasYochid that circumstances matter.
Anyway I was told by a Posek here in Staten Island that Reb Moshe revised his psak in later years. Please research.
Does Reb Moshe talk about air conditioners? Riding in a car is biblical according Chasam Sofer for violation of resting.
The Ben Ish Chay says that shabbos is called shabbos shalom because it unites body and soul.
It it affects our spiritual well building I consider Oneg Shabbos, turning on TV is not spiritual כל שרוח הבריות נוחה ממנו it says ruach the spiritual the soul. Extreme heat can affect our learning.February 14, 2018 5:17 pm at 5:17 pm in reply to: @Chabad Shluchah Please Explain Why Davening To/Betten a Rebbe is Okay #1469517
Reward and punishment is just measuring stick of how much nachas ruach we create.
Putting on a stove by a goy on shabbos might be another problem of bishul akum.February 14, 2018 4:06 pm at 4:06 pm in reply to: @Chabad Shluchah Please Explain Why Davening To/Betten a Rebbe is Okay #1469464
It doesn’t matter what type of a chosid you are or if you are a chosid at all as long that you want to create nachas ruach to Hashem with your service. They are all different ways to arrive to the same thing. The importance is not the means but the end,
The isur of amira lleakum came out in order not to weaken by being all the work of shabbos through a goy thereby eliminating shabbos altogether. Such that if he has no goy he might do it himself. Rambam hilchos shabos (6,1, ) so we can say that this can apply on a shabbos clock also. But if there is a mitzva, he will realize that their is a limitation on the permission. As I mentioned before that oneg shabbos might be considered a mitzva.
Anyway DaasYochid what are you saying? Didn’t I say that I think that amira leakum does not apply by an A/C?
It’s an argument among the Rishonim if Amirah Leakim is oral or biblical. How can we include something that happens automatically on shabbos to something that is done through an action?
If you want to understand Amiroh Leakim see the sefer Minchas Kohen Mishmeres Shabbos Shaar 1, Chap. 1-10
The Zohar uses the expression whoever speaks in a shul about mundane matters.
I think that Amirah Leakim does not apply by an A/C as discussed above the same applies to a Shabbos clock since we can’t make our own gezeros after the completion of the Shas.
Reb Moshe did not want his Teshuvas translated because the circumstances can change and we don’t know the circumstances of his teshuva.
Things and circumstances can change. It says in Devorim(17,9) Go to the priest who is around at that time. Samuel in his generation like Yiftoch in his generation even if he has less knowledge excluding Gezeros. Ruling that we must follow our gedolim in our time if the circumstances changed. See
Panim Yafos there. See Tosfas Betzeh (6,1) d’h Vehoidnah currently.
See Rema Shulchan Aruch Chaim (376,2) They allowed Amiroh Leakim for a Mitzva.
There is such thing as Oneg Shabbos. Being in the dark or sweating in the heat is not Oneg Shabbos so I think you can use it even it makes some noise.
The Rambam’s view Hilchos Daios (6,8) is that by Ben Adam Lamokam, if one does not listen when admonished privately , can be ashamed publicly. The son of the Shlah follows this ruling when it comes to talking in shul.
I think that air conditioner would be ok. We don’t want to take away from the aura of Shabbos by listening to Radio/TV. to make an Uvdah Dchol but it does not mean that a person has to suffer and be uncomfortable on Shabbos. Are you allowed to get a Goy to put on the Radio/TV?
There is a Taz in Shulchon Aruch, Orech Chaim (55, 4) whose view is that whoever talks in shul cannot be counted as part of a minyan.
We ask permission before praying by saying Hashem, please open up my lips that my mouth should be able to utter your praises. Because we might not be worthy of it.
The Smak makes a kal vochamer from the Goyim’s behavior in their churches. There is an excuse that we feel at home not like guests.
Bravo! The Little I Know, Beautiful. I applaud you. Don’t sell yourself short. What you are saying is gold. The Chidusheh Harim explains the curse to the snake as dust is everywhere, but Hashem said to him here is your food don’t bother me. We praise Hashem that we can praise Him. He does not push us aside.
If everyone talks in shul, that unity should be broken up like the unity of the Dor Haflogoh.
Most Jews are davening, but some talk which creates disunity with those that are davening.
When Jews are concerned with other’s deficiencies as it says בורא נפשות רבות וחסרונן
by praying not only for ourselves but also for others, we create unity. But, when we only care for ourselves and not for others as it says when Yaakov Avinu saw the ladder in his dream ויקץ יעקב משנתו ויאמר says the Baal Haturim that the last letters add up to צבור following אכן יש ה במקום הזה behold Hashem rests in this place ואנכי לא ידעתי when we put aside the אנכי our self the ego as the Baal Shem Tov interprets אנכי עומד בין ה וביניכם the self the ego stands between us and Hashem we create disunity.
What are the chances that their own concerns will be the same topic?
See what I said under the topic talking in shul. Not talking protects the unity.
If people are not concerned about the prayer of others when they are talking in shul, then I can assume that their talking is about themselves.
No, because each will be talking about his own concerns.
Three individuals, a doctor, an architect and a computer programmer analyst argue what was the first profession. The doctor says it had to be surgery as it says that G-d created Eve from Adam’s ribs. The architect says, No it says earlier that G-d created heaven and earth from chaos. The programmer analyst says, and who created the chaos.
Why didn’t Yosef dream that Dinah will also bow down in front of him?
Even in a dream he would not dream that his mother in law will bow down in front of him.
Why do the Goyim celebrate Kratzmich the night before and we celebrate Purim the night after?
They celebrate after a Jew and we celebrate after a Goy.
Why did the shevotim circumcise the people of Shechem?
When they are Jews no one cares.
We might want to take along a sefer to learn not to waste the time.February 12, 2018 5:39 pm at 5:39 pm in reply to: @Chabad Shluchah Please Explain Why Davening To/Betten a Rebbe is Okay #1467432
See Bamidbor (13,22) Parshes Shelach Rashi ויבא עד חברון Kolev went to the grave of the Avos to pray that they should help him not to follow the Meraglim’s advice.February 12, 2018 1:43 pm at 1:43 pm in reply to: Does it make you a better person if your material possessions are substandard? #1467367
The tent doors in the desert did not face each other, maybe, in order that one should not see and desire the others possessions.February 12, 2018 11:51 am at 11:51 am in reply to: @Chabad Shluchah Please Explain Why Davening To/Betten a Rebbe is Okay #1467346
We are forbidden to daven to the Rebbe or to a Malach. They are conduits through their prayer, because of their greatness, to be listened to us who don’t have does zechusim, benefits.February 12, 2018 11:32 am at 11:32 am in reply to: Why did Hashem give us two ears but only one mouth? #1467340
Maybe the reason is that a person doing this without a mind is like an animal. See Sefer Hachinuch 95, about sacrificing and animal for a chatos when done things unwittingly.February 12, 2018 10:45 am at 10:45 am in reply to: Why did Hashem give us two ears but only one mouth? #1467302
The Kotzker tells us that חרנה is the same as לחרן teaching us that we should hold back speaking as much as we can. Remember listen has the same letters as silent. A wild animal comes to the world when we don’t use our mouth properly. The Binah Leitim interprets coming to the world as the person speaking converts himself to a wild animal.
According the Yerushalmi it has nothing to do with Moshiach but Eliyohu Hanovi. The destruction of temple was because of sinas chinom so if we create achdus we will be forgiven and be able to rebuild the Beis Hamikdosh speedily in our time, Amen
