RG, did you read carefully what I wrote? I anticipated all your questions.
Be careful with all the chumros not be like a dog who wants to make everything tref in order thar it should get more. The Neviim needed proof from the Torah to establish anything new. The Torah gives us guidelines for chumras:
1. The Chachomin according to the Rambam are ovar on Baal Tosif if they say fowl is assur biblically to eat with milk,
2. If you add to it, you show the Torah is incomplete and thereby you can also take away from it
3. וחי בהם, ולא שימות בהם
4. לא ניתן תורה למלאכי השרת
5. תפסת מרובה לא תפסת
If there is no yetzer hora, then all the mitzvos, as we know them, will disappear since there will not be any outside resistance and no yetzer tov and everything will be done because we will recognize that they will be the right things to do. This world will turn into olam habo as Adam before his sin. All other answers are related to the yetzer hora.
Everyone agrees that Shavuos needs lochem. The shtei halechem was chametz because if not for the yetzer hora, the Torah would have never been given to us but to the malochim. Alao, we can allow because of the Torah some more indulgence as we have a band aid that keeps us protected.
The Magen Avraham says that you can boycott fish on shabbos to bring down the price. Also, if he does nor like it, it is not oneg shabbos for him.May 20, 2019 10:15 am at 10:15 am in reply to: Did Rebbitzin Golden Pick Sponsor an Article Just to Troll? #1729359
The Rabbeinu Bachaye in Parshes Ki Siso explains why c’v a plague comes when the Jews are counted directlly. Together we are all tzadikim. If we count them, we separate the bad from the good.
Avi K, I heard it says, מנגד תראה את הארץ, ושמה לא תבא if you are against seeing the land, you will not get there.
Korach’s statement was against the Torah. Everyone is holy but not on the same level and therefore we need a leader to elevate us to a higher level. This is our purpose in life to reach new heights climbing the ladder from earth to heaven as dreamt by Yaakov Avinu.
The chalacha SA YD 89,2 does not say an hour between milk (not hard cheese) and meat.
Lessons from Pesach Shen:
1. Don’t separate yourself from the group
2. Do everything possible to do a mitzva
3. Give people a second chance
You eat shabbos what ever is chaviv to him.
RG, we only wait a 1/2 hour between milk and meat. You can eat something in between fish and meat. You can eat cheese blintzes after the fish maybe not together.
We usually had a potato soup, fish and cheese blintzes.
The RMA SA O’CH 494,2 says to eat milcihig and then fleishig to have two breads, as we should not use the same bread for both, to commemorate the shtei halechem.
Halacha and labeling is not same. Maybe, there are guidelines by the government of milk amount in a product to be called dairy.May 17, 2019 12:33 am at 12:33 am in reply to: How did Chabad change from being Anti Zionist to Pro #1728445
Nev, what I mentioned before the logic from Amram and Miriam is not mine but the Aim Habonim Samecha Shaar 3,12. about the building of EY used by the talmidim of the Maharam Shik.
Nev is telling us that this is what is called דבר המעמיד which is not botel so it is not like milk and the RMA above does not apply.
Look at RMA SA YD 97,6
RG, If you meant to say that davening is a mitzva, I go to sleep before I am mechuyav.May 16, 2019 9:51 pm at 9:51 pm in reply to: How did Chabad change from being Anti Zionist to Pro #1728320
The Chasam Sofer explains the argument between Amram and Miriam was that Amram divorced his wife to bring the geulah as all neshomos will be used up in the guf. Miriam argued that this works only if everyone follows your lead, otherwise the tzadikim will refrain fron having children and all births will be rashoim. The same argument was whether to join the Kneses. If the religiious don’t join, they will do whar they want without objections.
After research I find that non-dairy can have .5% milk, 5/1000 which probably is botel, whereas dairy free can not have any milk.
Did you ask them, what did they say? . It is unlawful to mislabel something.
Again I indicated the MB who says there is a difference if he does averos lehachis, on purpose, or leteovan for desire.
ואלה שמות’בני ישראל הבאים מצרימה’ ס”ת מילה indicating they were all distinguished because of their circumcision.
RG, Are you talking about yourself?
The question is why do they put it in there? If for taste it certainly is not botel and otherwise how can you mevatel directly when you can leave it out?
I think the answer is that milk currently is not an issur and therefore we can be mevatel it and it becomes botel since the most it can be by the government allowance is 1/200.

The Satmar Rebbe ztz’l was asked why he doesn’t thank them for saving him? He said, if someone sets a fire to a house and then saves them, does he deserve thanks?
No, but many finish their sefer liike this: Chidushei Harashba on Brochos, Chasam Sofer (7,74) etc.
It says וראה בטוב ירושלים כל ימי חייך see the good in Jerusalem all your life. There is story with the Klausenburger Rebbe who was asked, why don’t you see anything bad in EY? He said, I am busy seeing the good העוסק במצןה פטור מן המצוה.
What about W and his Iraq War?
Creating peace with Egypt by Carter was a great accomplishment that still is surviving today.
It is a Midrash Rabba:
דברים רבה (וילנא) פרשת וזאת הברכה פרשה יא
אלו ואלו היו אומרים (ישעיה נז) יבא שלום ינוחו על משכבותם הולך נכוחו (משלי י) זכר צדיק לברכה ונשמתו לחיי עולם הבא. אמן כן יהי רצון, ברוך ה’
לעולם אמן ואמן.
Maybe we finsh the Darosho with the coming of Meshiach which is implied in this pasuk by the duplicate Amen’s. This world and the next world to come.
Joseph, Trump by not standing up against anti-semitism, he is enpowering them. They see it as שתיקה כהודאה.
RG, We mentioned before it is not a mitzva to be up. It is kabalah. No halacha in SA to be up because there is no gemora. The Beer Hetev quotes the Ari Z’l. Are you mixed up like davening shatz with a beard?
To quote the Magen Avraham by sittiing for Tefilin when put on the hand, kabalah does not trump halacha.
RG, everything you don’t understand seems funny to you. Thet want to satisfy everything being up and davening properly.May 14, 2019 9:09 pm at 9:09 pm in reply to: Saving shul seats, sidurrim for others not yet here #1727091
If there is a helping plate, just remove a piece in another plate and be mekadesh with it and then help yourself into your plate.May 14, 2019 9:09 pm at 9:09 pm in reply to: Saving shul seats, sidurrim for others not yet here #1727077
Thinking it over, it is not simple. If he leaves the food over without touching it, it can be reused. If he tastes it and leaves it over, it loses its vakue. If he removes a piece into another plate to eat, the rest can be reused. He should be able to be mekadesh with the piece he removed.May 14, 2019 6:29 pm at 6:29 pm in reply to: Saving shul seats, sidurrim for others not yet here #1727055
Gaon, I would say yes. He can be mekadesh the ishoh because once he was given the food, it belongs to him to eat it or leave it over.May 14, 2019 5:51 pm at 5:51 pm in reply to: Does Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlita prohibit men from shaving their beards? #1727030
The two are related. If shaving with an electric shaver is assur because of simlas ishoh as no stubbles are left, he would be ovar on cutting with a razor.
My wifw and I made a shiduch when we just got married. I knew the choson and she knew the kallah.May 14, 2019 12:08 pm at 12:08 pm in reply to: Saving shul seats, sidurrim for others not yet here #1726908

You have just proved the words of the Magen Avraham אין חכמה לאשה why a woman should not learn genora as also indicated by the klugeryid. It says על פי שנים עדים יקום דבר where two posters tell you that you are incorrect.May 13, 2019 11:40 pm at 11:40 pm in reply to: Does Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlita prohibit men from shaving their beards? #1726582
He can have a physical problem if he can’t have a beard so we don’t want him to be a shatz.May 13, 2019 11:40 pm at 11:40 pm in reply to: Does Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlita prohibit men from shaving their beards? #1726581
It does not say אם יש לו זקן indicating that he needs a beard to daven.May 13, 2019 11:40 pm at 11:40 pm in reply to: Does Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlita prohibit men from shaving their beards? #1726580
All this does not mean that he must have a beard, but be able to have a beard.
