    My understanding is, that at the time he personally did not require someone to learn secular studies. However, if one does, he better not waste his time because that is bitul Torah but as it is necessary and one applies himself, it is not bitul Torah.

    The above is the clubs argument:

    The club argued that Yeshiva’s plea to the Supreme Court was premature, also noting the university already has recognized a gay pride club at its law school.

    When we give something on behalf of something else than the second thing for which the first thing is given is more beloved than the first. We bring bikurim to show that Hashem is more beloved than the first fruits, which is much loved as the first dollar earned, is being sacrificed in His name by our recognizing all He has given to us. This is also the reason that we show recognition at the Hagaddah for Hashem taking us out from Mitzraim by saying the same pesukim.

    Yes, to the OP question. I heard from my Rebbi, the Hadhauser Wiener Rav in elementary school that if one goes to learn secular studies and does not listen, put his mind to it to do well on a test is bitul Torah.

    So Sheliach Hakein reminds us to also do the other things dependent on speech that will bring Meshiach, believe in Hashem and trust Him, daven for his coming and learn Mishnayus.

    If you want the children, the mother should not see how the children are taken away from her. We are not allowed to pray, Hashem have mercy on me as you have mercy even on a bird. The Chinuch explains in order not to compare our mercy with Hashem’s whose mercy comes from understanding and not from emotion.

    According to the Beis Elokim we need most should daven for Meshiach. Similarly maybe one doing the mitzva might not bring it.

    Moish26, you are insulting me considering that I put ch’v Torah in a garbage can but at least you say lichoira. If I do it as most do, it is because I don’t agree with you. We have shown and proven that if you don’t see and know the women you are talking to, is not a problem.

    I just indicated the similarities (being unplanned, written with an aleph instead of a heh and the mother looking for her children) of this mitzva and Meshiach. Caring for the species not dying out or showing mercy for the child birds, would indicate to have children or building a house to have children. However, looking for children indicates that we create a symbolism showing our aspiration for the mother (Hashem) to look for his children as the holy Zohar gives us hope that it will be fulfilled, midah kaneged midah, being inclusive in long life. Honoring parents where it promises long life also, might be as the Rav Abarbanel explains that when your children will see that you honor your parents, they will honor you accordingly providing you a good long life. This can be demonstrated with a story. There was a grandfather, father and son. The father would feed the grandfather in a wooden plate. When the grandfather passed on, the father wanted to get rid of the plate, so the son said, father don’t throw it out as we need it for you.

    Why will Meshiach come unplanned? Maybe, the Maharal explains the statement that if one repeats something from someone’s name will bring the redemption on the world. Why? Hashem wants us to recognize His deed to give credit where credit is due. When this individual does that, Hashem can be the geulah. When Meshiach will come unplanned, spontaneously, the miracle of his coming will be more recognized and appreciated than when one is planning for it.

    How can the rabonon eliminate a get? It’s based on the fact the kedushin is invalidated from the beginning which needs a good reason and not wanting to accept a get is not sufficient.

    mods, sometimes we notice that we made grammatical or spelling mistakes and would want to edit it but edit is not available.

    Agreed. We were having problems with severely inappropriate screen names being visible while waiting for approval on posts and had to deny visibility. This unfortunately prevents edits. The only two options is to catch the edit button on your post for the first 10 or so minutes after it is approved, or to do as you have been doing, to post your corrections and when possible we fix it for you.

    For a Bas Mitzva there is a three sided argument. the Seridei Aish considers it a requirement that the girls should not feel left out. Reb Moishe Feinstein ztz’l says that it should not be done in a shul as it is voluntary like any other birthday party. The Debretziner Rav, Rav Moshe Stern ztz’l held that it is a reform custom and one should not attend when invited. I made it but only for the women.

    The Magen Avraham O’CH 225 s’k 4 says that we should make a sudah, a party on the day after his Bar Mitzva like a wedding in order to celebrate it by make it known to the public that he became responsible to do mitzvos. He quotes from the Yam Shel Shlomo (Maharshal) in Bava Kama that if he gives a speech in Torah, it does not have to be done that day it is a sudas mitzva.

    There was an argument whether the religious Jews should join the knesses. They brought proof to join from a Chasam Sofer as explained by the Maharam Shik. Why did Amrom divorce his wife Yocheved?
    He figured that if he has no children, the guf (container of the nesshumas) will be exhausted and Meshiach will come and no more boys will be thrown into the Nile. So Miriam told him that the reshaim will not follow you, the guf will not be used up and we end up giving birth to reshaim. Similarly if the religious don’t join the knesses, the chilonim will do what they want without the religious having any say in government affairs, so it is better for them to join.

    The Chasam Sofer was asked, is it permitted for women to sing in a shul to honor the King? He said, no and the respect is not to do it thereby showing that the king is merciful and does ‘not’ require us to do anything against halacha.

    The Mitzriyim elevated Yosef and provided a haven for Yaakov Avinu.

    The Kli Yokor at the end of parashas Vayigash explains that, the reason for the suffering and enslavement was because the Jews forgot an important lesson that must be remembered in diaspora. We must constantly keep in mind that we are strangers in a strange land. Moishe Rabbenu constantly kept this in mind, and therefore the G-d of his father was constantly helping him. This was the lesson that Moshe Rabbeinu wanted to teach us through the naming of his children. The Jews wanted to become part of the Egyptian establishment. They forgot that they came to Egypt just as a temporary dweller, who is fleeing his problems temporarily by escaping to a strange land. They became rich and acquired land. They built on it fancy houses which the Egyptians resented.
