    For Rosh Chodesh bentshin they go to shul because Rosh Chodesh was given to the women.

    It is interesting that “The Rav” refers for everyone to his own Rebbi. We find in Perek Chelek where each of the talmidim thought that Moshach is his own Rebbi. As the Abarbinal says that משיח stands for an acronym for each one’s Rebbies מנחם, שילה, ינון and חנינה.

    This sefer is a thick red sefer published 1998 in EY. It has many references under the halochos similar to the 5 Chalokim of Piskei Teshuvas by Ben Zion Rabonowitz following the MB and current applicable teshuvas. In the back are teshuvas from Rabbi Chaim Kanevsky Shlita.

    Gaon, Why are we mentioning in davening המחדש בכל יום תמיד מעשה בראשית the proof from the creation of the light that is renewed every day according the Torah and Mitzvos that people do and what they deserve which changes daily?

    I believe that this is part of the Hashgacha. Hashem set a condition at the time of creation that he will modify anything that is needed to satisfy creation. Since the world stands on Torah and Mitzvos the condition and benefit in order to continue to perform them constantly changes, so things have to be adjusted constantly as it says המחדש בכל יום תמיד מעשה בראשית.

    HaLeivi, this interpretation if from the Ksav Sofer. I think the logic is, if you mention the open miracles on the appropriate day through The Great Halel, you are not excluding the daily miracles but emphasizing the historical miracles, happening that day but if you say The Great Halel every day than you are praising Hashem for the mentioned miracles for no reason but not for any other miracles.

    We are only entitled to the benefits of the world because of the mitzvos we do. These changes constantly, therefore, Hashem has to constantly renew the world as it says המחדש בטובו בכל יום תמיד מעשה בראשית.

    The Chasam Sofer did not call his talmid the Maharam Ash (Imrei Aish) talmidi because he considered him to be a Talmid Chover. The Imrei Aish called the Chasam Sofer a רב ששכח תלמידו.

    It says in Parshas Shemini, don’t eat a chazir because it has cut hoofs. Asks the Klei Yokor that the reason for the prohibition should be because it does not re-chew its cud? He answers that because his good part also contributes to his prohibition because he is fake and shows his cut hoofs like Aisov being fake. In the future Aisov will repent and a new creation will be done where the pig will re-chew its cud and will become mutar.

    “הקורא הלל בכל יום וכו the reason is that he only recognizes the great miracles and doesn’t realize that כל הנשמה תהלל י-ה, as the Midrash says, על כל נשימה ונשימה תהלל י-ה, we are suppose to praise Hashem for every breath take.

    A doctor must get a diploma to proof himself. Once he received it, we accept him at face value. Hashem proved Himself with miracles. We accept Him at face value without the need to prove Himself anymore.

    There is another joke where a Jew did not have any wine and matzah for Pesach. He went to a Rebbe who assured him that he will have. When it was Pesach was a week away, he still did not have. So he decided to sell some pillows an covers and bought them for the money. He meets the Rebbe on Pesach who asked him did you have your matzah and wine? Yes, he answers. Says the Rebbe, I told you, you will have.

    If someone understands calculus the slope of a curve (derivative) is based on the fact that in an infinitesimal interval the vertical and horizontal distances don’t change. Also, finding the velocity for a particular time is based on an average velocity for an infinitesimal time, figuring it will not change in that small time. The whole mathematical theory is based on chazaka meiikara.

    Tosfas in Sukkah 8:1 proofs that 1 2/5 is an approximation of the square root of 2. If you take a square of 5, its diagonal is 7 but the area of that diagonal square is 49 but it should be 50 which is half of the outer square of 10 by 10.

    Look at the MB 17:10 bochurim not wearing a talis because of the relationship between marriage and tzitzis, but maybe that’s why they wear big talis katans to perform the mitzva of tzitzis. Also since they don’t put the talis over the head according the interpretation of the gemora, they might not wear a big talis altogether.

    Two wrongs don’t make a right. Look at others who do good and feel good because they are doing the right thing and if you do good, you will also feel good. People who don’t do good, don’t really feel good. They may look like they feel good, but you do don’t know how they feel in their inside.

    When it comes to duchaning, see the RMA O”CH 128:44 saying that we only duchan on Yom Tov because we are besimcha whereas on Shabbos we worry about our weekly needs.
    Talis, see the MB siman 17 sk 10 why bochurim don’t put on a talis.
    There is minhag in Frankfurt to cover the Choson and Kala with a talis under the Chupah.

    There is a Magen Avraham in Hilchas Yom Kippur 610, that makes a distinction between chometz and Yom Kippur. Chometz cannot be touched because everything else is permitted, whereas Yom Kippur all food is forbidden.
    See the Sefer Paninim Yekorim who explains with this why Chavo said that you can’t touch the etz hadaas because all other trees are permitted.

    See O”CH 158:4 MB sk 20 for washing the hands.
    Could be that wine used to be expensive, so they didn’t use a kos during the week because they had none.
    Kiddush between those hours is a sakana, according to the Magen Avraham, from mazel maadim, and whoever doesn’t care will be protected from the heavens.
