    Reb Moshe compares cooking to the Nemukei Yosef different than anything else, why?

    Sorry, Why does he mention the Nemukei Yosef where the action is considered finished erev shabbos?

    It is not the same the melocho is finished erev shabbos but amira leakim the action is being done on shabbos by a goy. It is true that the opposite true when putting it off which might be a melocho sh’eina tzerica legufah.

    The Reb Moshe mentions the Nimukei Yosef in Bovo Kama that the whole action is already finished erev shabbos. It is true that Tosfas in Shabbos answers on hasroas safek that it is not considered because it will cook automatically if you don’t remove the bread from the oven.

    I think the opposite that since no action is required once you put the pot on erev shabbos, you can use a timer by cooking.

    The RMA’s 695:4, psak is that if someone sends mishloach manos, even if the other is not willing to accept it, he is still performing the mitzva. Says the Chasam Sofer in the name of the Monas Halevi, the mitzva is to show love and brotherliness to each other, but not like tzadakah where the mitzva is to make sure that the other person should have. According to the Shulchan Aruch this mitzva is part of Sudas Purim such that he should share his meal with others not to be only for his stomach. Others say that this it part of Matonas Leaniyim not to shame them. if everyone gets, the poor don’t feel ashamed.

    The question is if we need a brim or hat at all? There is a joke where someone goes to an eye doctor who asks him can you see the plaque on the wall? The man asks, what wall? We must know there is a wall before we can see the plaque similarly before we talk about a brim we must know if we need a hat.

    NC, I am not talking about wearing a yarmulke but a talis over the head. The Mishneh Berurah (91,10) says that using your sleeve over the head is fine. The Mishneh Berurah continues (91,12) says to wear a hat not just a yarmulke. Currently people wear a yarmulke under the hat so that would be the custom.

    It says in Tehilim ממעמקים קראתי ה From the depths I call you Hashem. The Dubner Magid compares this to a king who adopted a young man. The king provided him all necessities. One day the young man disappeared and they couldn’t find him. The king sent his soldiers to look for him. They found him hiding in a pit. The young man said that he feels ashamed after all the good the king has done to him, he stole the king’s favorite robe which he is currently wearing. He can’t show his face because of his shame. This is similar to us and Hashem where we are covering our face because we are ashamed to show it after all the good that Hashem bestowed on us. Could be that’s why we cover our head and face with a talis.

    Letzonis is never good especially when it hurts someone. מלתא דבדוחתא is encouraged to liven the atmosphere,. because mitzvas and learning should be done from joy.

    The Mishneh Berurah (8,4) brings the Bach that covering the head with a talis by davening has 3 benefis:

    1) humility – hiding his face, ashamed to show himself
    2) Kavonoh – does not get distracted from davening
    3) Yiraas Shomaim – brings him closer to Hashem

    There is a joke where Moshiach arrives in a shul with a bent down hat with a small brim. He is told over here we wear a large brim hat bent up. He gets another hat with a large brim bent up and he goes to another shul. He is told here we were a small brim bent down. He tells them, you can’t agree on anything. When you will agree I will return.
