    I will tell you being familiar with german the meaning and origin of gebrochs is. We break matzas and pour on it hot coffee. Matzah Meal used for making knaidlach is brocken matzahs. Some like to break matzahs into soup.

    They say kitniyos is what is called legume including rice which should be mutar until chatzos. The shabbos lunch will be early this year, so cholent beans without barley should no be a problem.

    To your example the Malbim in Parashas Noach explains that the mabul created a chemical change thereby make it look that the earth is older than it really is.

    Kitniyos, legume we find the Rav Mordechai 588, who says tbat kitniyos is assur because flour can be made from it and mistakenly exchanged with chametzdig flour whereas gebrochs is a chumra because of matzah not baked well, touching water and becoming chametz. No rishonim asser gebrochs. It is a far consideration. See the RMA O’CH 453,1

    As the MB above says, we don’f differentiate and we always have tbe egg and chicken neck, on the seder plate. At ho lachma anya, remembering our exile that currently anyone can take part in the sudah without being counted on as explained by tbe Naasei Hashem, we remove them to realize that currently we don’t have tnem.

    תורת משה בראשית פרק מה
    כי פי המדבר אליכם. פירש”י כי פי המדבר בלשון הקודש, נראה כי סגולת לשון הקודש שלא יתקיים באדם שאינו משמר עצמו בקדושה, שפלא גדול הוא בגלות בבל בזמן שבעים שנה נשתכח לשון הקודש והי’ העם חציים מדבר כשדית ואשדודי’ יען כי לא שמרו עצמם בקדושה, ולזה נתן להם יוסף אות על דרכו הטוב במה שלשון הקודש מורגל ושגור בפיו.

    The words of the Chasam Sofer in Torahs Moshe:
    The speaking of Lashon Hakadash has a benefit that it only stays if one conducts oneself with sanctity because it is a great wonder how in the duration of seventy years lashon hakadash was forgotten and other languages spoken because they did not keep themselves holy, so Yosef gave them a proof on his proper behavior that his constant speaking language was lashon hakadash.
    And we can add the fact that he was circumcised.

    כי פי המדבר עליכם – בלשון הקודש the writings I don’t know, referenced the gemoras speaking about it but the language is holy as the Ramban says there are no dirty words in it. Akuperma it is despicable to say Loshan Hakadash is dead as it is too holy to be used.

    There is a cinnection between Pesach and Rosh Hashanah, teshuvah meahave, Pesach which is isaruse mileailo a wakeup from above, whereas Rosh Hashana, teshuva miyiroh whiich a isaruso miletato, wakeup from below. Rosh Hashanah we avoid eating nuts whereas Pesach it is a mitzva. Tbe remaz is the letters before שופר is קערה.

    There are two consideratiins here, an egg on the kaara is for chagigah mentioned in SA O’CH 473,4 and tbe MB s’k 22 there discusses the egg on motze sbabbos seder either we have one or twio tavshilin by not differentiating, lo palug. Eating eggs at the meal, is in the RMA in SA O’CH 477,2 because of Tisha Beov as a zecher, so women can also take part like everything else of tbe seder meal.

    It says in the Parasha of Vayikra אדם כי יקריב מכם קרבן it should have said כי יקריב אדם מכם קרבן this is telling us how to sacrifice a korban like Adam Harishan by sacrificing himself together with the sacrifice. The holy Alshich explains the meaning והבל הביא גם הוא Havel brought himself with the korban. The Ramban explains the meaning of a korban that a person should think that everything done to it should be done to him. The right thought is very important because the Rambam explains that by itself the bringing of a sacrifice is a barbaric act which was done to an a’z.

    The famous statement interpretation of the Kli Yakar and others on בשמים ממעל ועל הארץ מתחת, when it comes to heavenly, spriritual things, you should look at people above yourself, to be envious of them and thereby try to follow them. Whereas, for earlthly, material things, look at people below you, to be satisfed for what you have by recognizing that others have less than what you have.

    The filibuster currently is obstruction and can be racist. It has to reformed to stand, speak and justify one’s point about the issue as it used to be otherwise it is invoked just for obstruction.

    The Nodah Beyehuda’s YD (2,148) son differentiates between shituf and swearing. Shutaf for a non-jew is also assur but swearing is not. Tosfas in Tractate A’Z (2,1) says that we know for a fact that the akum don’t really worship the current a’z, so we can do business with them.

    Since that is no erva by men the question is there hirhur. Hair is assur because of hirhur. Erva is not related to being used to but hirhur is.

    My prove was from rishonim quoted by the above Aruch Hashulchan that we follow the custom of the current behavior. We can make brachas with men wearing only undergarments because we are used to that. This answers the BaltimoreMaven question also but by women two wrongs don’t make a right.

    The Aruch Hashulchan O’CH 75, says that hair not covered by a woman does not prohibit davenen infront of it since this became a custom, there is no hirhur. The MB argues on this. Certainly currently boys are used to seeing each other like that.

    The egg is eaten as a remaz for Tisho Beov falling on the same day. The Chasam Sofer explains the relationship. If they would not have been taken out of mitzraim before the four hundred years, no charban would have occured. The Jews are like eggs where the more they are cooked, the harder they become.

    It is a comprimise as there is an agreement satisfying and making both sides happy and there is concessiion involved on both sides by willing to give up one’s fiew for something else.

    My definition of a compromise is to do something where both sides are satisfied and happy with it without regard to any concessions which will create peace.

    The Mechaber SA YD 289,6 says place it vertically like Rashi and the RMA mentions the Rabbenu Taam’s view to place it horizontally and says that whoever wants to satisfy both views should place it slanted. I think this is a compromise satisfying both views. The husband and wife should do things they are both happy with. Whether a compromise is concession or not does not make a difference.

    Don’t Toi with me. Mi samcha leish? Who are you to tell me what to do when I believe I am right as mentioned on the other website and you have not convinced me otherwise. If one is wrong the other is right. If you are not saying both views are wrong, it is a compromise. Why don’t we follow the right view?
