    It says שוב יום אחד לפני מותך repent a day before your death. As the person does not know when this day comes, he will repent every day. Every day he will climb to higher level so the yetzer hara becomes stronger, because כל הגדול מחבירו יצרו גדול ממנו, whoever is greater than his friend, his yetzer hara becomes also greater.

    Help from Above is also required to understand and find the truth in our learning. The Chasam Sofer explains that the Torah has hidden treasures and through Hashem’s help they get revealed. The Hafloh says that a question comes from Heavenly help. I explained that the Jews encountered bitter water and through a bitter tree it became sweet. Comparing this to the learning of Torah, sometimes we don’t understand at all our learning making it completely bitter. We are helped to find the truth through a question, but a question itself without an answer is also bitter. When an answer is found, it becomes sweet.

    Heavenly help or help from the Heavens. It says יצרו של אדם מתגבר עליו בכל יום the yetzer hara of the person strengthens itself every day ואלמלא הקב”ה עוזר לו לא יוכל לו if Hashem would not help the person, he could not fight him.

    There is a Midrash יכול יהי’ יושב בטל ת”ל בכל מעשך אשר תעשה I would think he should sit idly by and rely on Hashem, it says all your work that you “do’. We see that to be blessed we have to do some work.

    simcha613 – If we would not commemorate the holocaust at all, you would be right, but on Tisha Beav we sit on the floor and say kinus for it recognizing what Rashi says on הנגלות לנו ולבנינו עד עולם if we don’t do something about what is open, we all become responsible and the majority gets punished.

    The Rambam Hilchos Taanis 1:3 says that we have a responsibility to recognize why we are fasting and not take it as an occurrence because if do, Hashem will also make things occur. Commemorating the holocaust on Tisha Beav makes us thing to realize why it happened and what we can do to improve ourselves.

    I don’t understand the Taamei Haminhogim so I will speculate. It says in Rus 3:9 ופרשת כנפך על אמתך and you should cover your maiden with a talis.
    This is was a sign of marriage since married women covered their hair. In
    Frankfurt, they cover the groom and bride together in a talis. There is a connection for this in the Torah where the making of ztitzis is followed by the pasuk of marriage.

    We had before President Reagan the SETA program for job training which was eliminated by him. I was educated in computer programming through this means. This was very economical because people gained skills making them more valuable and thereby where able to pay it back in taxes. He only looked at instant gratification. We should bring this kind of program back.

    Meno – A rich person with his consumption does not create a multiplying effect. He buys a yacht or saves it. A poor person spends the money where his consumption generates more investment requiring hiring workers and thereby the multiplying effect takes hold.

    Economy = Consumption + Investment + Government Spending

    Let us remember the important lesson from this holiday. The girls would go out to greet the boys in borrowed white clothing. Even those who posessed their own, borrowed in order not to ashame those who did not have.
    Let us keep in mind that we must go out our way not to embaress another person. It says ואהבת לרעך כמוך, love your fellow human being just like yourself. They also have a heilige neshama just like you being just as good as you are.

    simcha613 – Our chazal sometimes said towards the non-orthodox הבדלו that we should separate ourselves in order not to be influenced by them. There is not sinas chinom because we show openly our disapproval of their views. Sinas chinom is when we keep our hatred bottled up in our heart and act towards them as friends.

    Minimum wage does make economic sense. If people have more money, demand increases and they can pay higher prices. This is a chicken and egg question, will they be willing to invest and pay higher wages to generate demand and charge higher prices?

    There are two measurements, eggs or fingers.
    Finger measurement turned out to be greater than the egg measurement.

    Tzlach in Pesochim 115 says the eggs diminished in size.
    His talmid Rabbi Elozor Flekles says his Rebbe had big fingers.

    Rabbi Chaim Noeh must accept the talmid’s view.

    Don’t eat any beef not before or after a fast. Don’t eat any fish before which will make you thirsty. For Tisha B’av we make a layered with eggs potato dish.
