I explained above the reason how can it be that by goyim life is considered before birth whereas by Jews only after birth.
By the Jews, life begins at birth, rov before that will not live, so it is not considered murder, whereas by the goyim, we don’t go after rov as tbe minority do live, so it is considered murder.
I heard sixty years ago from by Rebbi on the weekly parasha sheal avicha veyagedcha, if you ask your father (and his does not know to answer) he will tell you, zekeinecha vayomru lach, ask your grandfather (my father) who will tell you.
We say in the in the Sanei Tokef that Rosh Hashanah we are written and Yom Kippur stamped, asks the Meharam Shik, how is this possible as the tsadikim and rashoim are written and stamped imeadiately and the in- between are left hung until Yom Kippur? I think it is talking about the in-between who are written in their book as a temporary scratch pad which is not stamped but moved to their respective books, life or vice versa written and stamped on Yom Kippur or Hoshanah Rabah.September 21, 2020 6:03 pm at 6:03 pm in reply to: Dvar Torah:Haazinu–Justice for All:How To Achieve Herd Immunity In Din #1903253
Now we have a different pshat on the pasuk above. Can I punish you such that I don’t affect the innocent?September 21, 2020 5:06 pm at 5:06 pm in reply to: Dvar Torah:Haazinu–Justice for All:How To Achieve Herd Immunity In Din #1903235
Nomesorah, The Chasan Sofer explains on the Hagadah, that the chacham, acts in clever manner not being called a tzadik, uses an expression eschem to exclude himself to get the rasha to reveal himself. When the rasha sees that chacham excludes himself, he presumes that he is a rasha, so he says I am also a rasha. Trump by not standing up against the white supramicist makes them think that he is also a white supramicist thereby providing strength and encouraging them.
The reason I wiil vote for Biden because Trump is dangerous who things he knows everything better than anyone else by firing all his best advisors. He destroyed the economy by letting the virus run rampant. He increased the deficit through the tax cuts which benefited only the rich. He encourages the rise of anti-semitism by supporting white supremacist.
Sam Klein, Trump’s father born in Germany and mother in Scotland and he is president. Why?
He was born in the US so is Kamala Haris.
Trump is the senile or liar who does not remember what he said before.
Based on doctor, you feed a person a little and see how they react whether he says I need more. If he says no, you feed him another small amount in the specified time. If he says yes, you feed him normally.
The doctor as paskened in SA above recognizes if the person is even at a safek life and death status and I don’t see anywhere a Rav required to make the decision. Please someone point out a posek (gadol) who requires that. Chronic is a long duration illness so it needs a halachic decision whether one can fast.
Yserbus, I applaud you. Bravo!
Before giving the sick to eat, he should be reminded by ‘anyone’ that today is Yom Kippur.
milhouse, You seem to know everything better than anyone else, so your gaava causes you to know less. I saw the BHL and Rav Chaim Shlita interprets it as the camphor was placed in a mask to hold it, but the mask itself currently is certainly beneficial. In our shul in Staten Island, no mask, no attendance. If you want to be easily mekayem the mitzva of love you neighbor like yourself, wear a mask, so not to infect others.
To decide whether one can eat on Yom Kippur we don’t ask a Rav but the doctor and if he feels he needs to eat, he can override even 100 doctors. see SA O’CH 618,1
Rav Chaim agrees to yeshivas opening provided they follow the proper separation in capsules rules and masks.
The reason I included the first line because it is dangerous and violates the mitzva of caring for your fellow man. It is one thing to endanger yourself but another thing to endanger others when you might infect other even being asymptomatic.
Your post is not worth 2scents. Doctors have exoerience in infectious diseases as this is not the first time happening see Biur Halacha O’CH 554 about the cholara epidemic to wear a mask going outside.
It says safek chashecha and safek eino chashecha, asks the Tosfas Chadashim on the mishnayus, isn’t it obvious from safek chashecha that it is a safek because of safek eino chashecha? He gives a brilliant answer. Safek chashecha is erev shabbos and safek eino chashecha is motzei shabbos where for each one we are concerned not to violate shabbos.
If Rav Shmuel Shlita might have known what Trump did with the cover up of the virus for his own interest, he might not have endorsed him.
Syag, it says vatishlach es amosah, how did Bisye know that her hand will grow? They say she did her part and let Hashem do His part. Reb Moshe explains how to raise children, half should be perspiration, by doing your part and the other half inspiration, pray to Hashem that your actions should bear fruit. Do your part of hishtadlus to accomplish the desired results according to the Torah and then pray to Hashem to make it a reality.
Should be above Gavriel taught 70 languages to Yosef.
health, I am not a leftist but a centrist deciding every policy on its own merits being careful not to diminish social security by reducing payroll deduction as an example and advocating telling the truth.
health, you agree that sometimes the risk outweighs the benefit, so how do you when to give it?
Sam Klein, the above should be the proper thought at the bracha of shehecheyonu which is made for a
They ask the question why does he get punished by Hashem looking away from him when he seems to do teshuva by saying that Hashem is not with me? Maybe, he gets punished because he says that things happen from nature and not from Hashem. Therefore, he is being turned over to nature by Hashem looking away from him.
2scents, did you listen to the Woodward tapes? Trump said one thing on tape and another in public.
He recognized the deadliness on the tape but down played it in public showing that he knew all the dangers on February 7th but he did not do anything about it then.
The litvishe and chasidim don’t wear a kitel but the ashkenazim who say maarovis, eat gebrochs and wear tefilin on chol hamoed (oberlander) do. A bar mitzva boy wears a talis. Maarovis is not said on shabbos because peoole needed candle light to read it, so they might have to bend it to fix it.September 10, 2020 2:14 pm at 2:14 pm in reply to: Nitzavim — Not in Heaven: Discussing how Adams Judgement was favorable #1900285
If someone says echta veashuv, echta veashuv why twice? They say once it is ok to say it to be mekayem the mitzva of teshuva (according to the Ramban above) but why twice, so it is held back for him the opportunity to do teshuva. Could be that if Hashem does not help, one cannot do teshuva, so this help is held back from him.
Be honest and tell the truth by not down playing its effect and don’t worry about panic as Kennedy at Missiles of October. Not create campaign get togethers without precautions. Not to open the economy and schools too early and not say it will go away by itself. Put more emphasis on testing to know whom to separate. Emphasize the wearing of masks by wearing it yourself as an example. How is it that we are worse off than any other country being 4% of the world’s population and 20+% of the deaths?September 10, 2020 1:15 pm at 1:15 pm in reply to: it’s dumb to blame trump for not doing anything about covid19 #1900210
Is it really dumb to blame him after the Woodward tapes are revealing his early knowledge about the covid19 and his playing it down for fear of a panic of the stock market which happened anyway?September 10, 2020 1:15 pm at 1:15 pm in reply to: Dvar Torah Nitzavim – Return Policy: Do Teshuva Now and Avoid the Holiday Rush #1900232
It says to do teshuva every end of the day, every end of the week, every end of the month or the end the year. The Dubner Magid sees it where you pay as you borrow or an installment plan making it easy to pay off the debt but if we accumulate our debt and pay off at one time by waiting to the last minute, it is not so easy to pay it off.
The Shuls don’t want to make a distinction, either everyone wears a mask or no one.
In our Shul in Staten Island it is forbidden to daven without a mask and social distancing is required. According to the Woodward tapes, Trump could have saved thousands by being honest early in February about the coronavirus and not down playing it for his fear of panic.September 10, 2020 11:10 am at 11:10 am in reply to: Dvar Torah Nitzavim – Return Policy: Do Teshuva Now and Avoid the Holiday Rush #1900160
The pasuk above according to the Rabbenu Bachayeh describes the three ways of doing mitzvos, speech, thought and deed. Everything should turn towards the center, machshava, thought, otherwise we have a body without a soul.September 10, 2020 11:10 am at 11:10 am in reply to: Dvar Torah Nitzavim – Return Policy: Do Teshuva Now and Avoid the Holiday Rush #1900157
I once heard that yirah is 1 and chochmah is 0. If you place a 1 before a 0, you can end up with a big number by recognizing the chochmah also, but 01 only recognizes the yirah but not the chochmah.September 10, 2020 11:10 am at 11:10 am in reply to: Dvar Torah Nitzavim – Return Policy: Do Teshuva Now and Avoid the Holiday Rush #1900149
Therefore we should do teshuva in Elul. As the implication by the Rav Avudraham in Uvo letziyon goel ulshovei fesha leyaakov if we want the redemption, we should do teshuva. go’el ul’shovei makes Elul.
Elul is the time for teshuva and geulah.

We say in Neilah, you stretch your hand to the wicked. We can look at this where someone is sinking in quicksand and Hashem kavayochal stretches out his hand, telling him to hold on to His hand to be pulled out. The shudders of a store are on the verge of being closed and a person rushes, saying, don’t close it as I want to still buy something.
There is an argument between the Rambam and the Ramban if teshuva is a mitzva. The Rambam’s view that viduy is the mitzva. He holds that his circumstances will happen to lead him to teshuva. You can’t tell a person to do teshuva when he does not realize that he is doing something wrong, as a person does not see his own faults, whereas the Ramban holds that maybe, his circumstances whether richness or poverty should lead him to doing teshuva.September 10, 2020 11:10 am at 11:10 am in reply to: Dvar Torah Nitzavim – Return Policy: Do Teshuva Now and Avoid the Holiday Rush #1900141
The Ben Ish Chai explains the accusatory angels by the passage Yomru hamoshlim bou cheshban, make an accounting of our deeds. What connection does it have to the city of Cheshban? The question is, how can we conquer Sichan when Maov was part of it? Once Sichan conquered Maov, Maov was absorbed in it and became null, a new nation. Similarly, when we do teshuva, we get transformed to a new person and the accusations don’t apply to us.
Hashem says, if you help mine, I will help yours. צדקה תציל ממות Tzedaka can’t be changed (killed away) by א’ת ב’ש as all the letters exist in it, as ה’צ and ד’ק.September 9, 2020 11:00 pm at 11:00 pm in reply to: Nitzavim — Not in Heaven: Discussing how Adams Judgement was favorable #1900039
abukspan, I think you misunderstood the whole post because I misposted it. It says vahevel hevi gam ‘hu’ explains the Alshich Hakash that he sacrificed himself together with tbe korban similarly Adam Harishan sacrificed himself with the korban as the Ramban explains in Parashas Vayekro tbe purpose of a korban.
Excuse the typos above authorities and Republicans.
You know a PaperBridge falls apart as your arguments. All medical athorities recommend wearing a mask in order to protect others from being infected. It is not for yourself but it is for others. If you have the virus, you spreaded around in a crowded place. The Relublicans only care for themselves, so no mask is required.
