    The swordfish in the Jewish Press article above is kosher but not practical because the whole fish is too expensive and a piece is not recognizable and would not fit in the fridge.

    sam, maybe that is why this month is called Av. We recognize that Hashem is our father and whatever He does is for our benefit.

    CS, attending a siyum every night is circumventing the intention of recognizing that the Beis Hamikdash was destroyed and we are unable to make our daily sacrifice. For the ashkenazim it is a time mourning.. This mourning is greater than avelos because it involves all of us. We will have seven weeks of simcha after tisha beov.

    It says כל שמתאבל על ירושלים זוכה ורואה בשמחתה whoever mourns the chorban of Jerusalem wilk see its happiness. Explains the Chasam Sofer that the deceased becomes forgotten, but not the chorban because we trust that the Beis Hamikdash will be rebuilt soon in our time so its not dead

    When Meshiah will become, we will pasken like the Beis Shamai because currently we don’t understand their stringencies so we pasken like the Beis Hilel, but when he will come, we will acquire a new understanding ומלאה הארץ דעה and the majority will follow the Beis Shamai.

    The Rabbenu Bechaye above translates the missing above on our mind and understanding meaning that there is lack in our understanding. Our mind is not as good as it used to be. The further we become from kabolas hatorah, our understanding of the Torah diminishes.

    The Rabbenu Bechayu at the end of Parshes Ki Siso explains the expression in the gemora חסורי מחסרא והכי קתני something is missing, so we must learn it differently, not that there is something wrong with it ch’v, but it was left out on purpose. Rebbi realized that it can be understood without it, so it was unnecessary to include it. As the generations became weaker in understanding, elaboration in greater detail was necessary and the gemora and commentaries came about. This has evolved to the artscroll. Rav Noson Adler ztz’l had a photographic memory, so he only placed dots in the margin to remember by, believing that for him it was unnecessary to write things down,

    To learn on your own, get a program gemara tutor, a multiple choice on the idioms of the gemora or a sefer onumber it. Once you learn them, it will help you set the words by recognizing these common expressions.

    BneiBarak Obama, we find by Miriam Behaloscho כי אשה כושית לקח. This is the Midrash:

    כי אשה כושית לקח עוד למה נאמר [והלא כבר נאמר] על אודות האשה הכושית אלא מה ת”ל כי אשה כושית לקח יש לך אשה נאה ביופיה ולא במעשיה במעשיה ולא ביופיה כמה שנאמר נזם זהב באף חזיר אשה יפה וסרת טעם (משלי יא כב) זאת נאה בנויה ונאה במעשיה לכך נאמר כי אשה כושית לקח (סליק פיסקא).

    The Chasam Sofer explains the pasuk וסרתם מן הדרך you get off the walked on way, ועבדתם אלהים אחרים and you will worship strange gods (who are strange to the worshipers) . It leads you slowly to it. אשר לא ידעתם which you don’t realize what a small deviation from the mesorah can lead to. As he would say חדש אסור מן התורה בכל מקום ובכל זמן anything new (unaccustomed) is forbidden min haTorah everywhere and every time.
