DQ , I don’t know what you are saying that safek divrei sofrim lechumra. ספיקא דרבנן לקולא The Rambam holds even by a mitzvas asei ספיקא מן התורה מדרבנן לחומרא but מן התורה is lekulah. The megila in the daytime is m’divrei kabolah lechumra but at night is oral law. A bar mitzva should not lein in the daytime but should be permitted at night. Isn’t divrei sofrim same as מדרבנן?

Over drinking on Purim ends up in the hospital.
The person drunk doesn’t know what is greater the saving of the Bnei Yisroel or the destruction of Haman. ארור המן and ברוך מרדכי have the same gematria explains the Magen Avraham. There is a difference that is not so obvious. Arur is greater than Haman whereas Mordechai is greater then Baruch, Haman was diminished but Mordechai was elevated.
יום כפורים the midrash says that Yom Kippur is like Purim. They are both Kabolas Hatorah and they are both a time of forgiveness. Purim is greater it is a time of joy because we accepted the Torah willingly and we were saved but Yom Kippur also can be a tine of joy even if we fast. We fast on Yom Kippur falling on shabbos because forgiveness is our oneg shabbos.February 28, 2018 2:40 pm at 2:40 pm in reply to: President Donald Trump, Oheiv Yisroel Par Excellence #1479555
We find by the plague of the frogs the view that it was one big frog and the more you hit it , the more frogs appeared. All this might encourage more terrorism. Cutting off aid just gives them validity for their mission that they must fight for their own survival. The Marshall Plan helped against communism.
Finding all Rav Miller’s Torah in one place is performing the act of ויפוצו מעינותיו חוצה and their act is praiseworthy and they deserve credit by citing their source.
The source is the web site because of all the work they put in to collect the information which is public, and not Rav Miller Ztzl.February 27, 2018 11:01 pm at 11:01 pm in reply to: President Donald Trump, Oheiv Yisroel Par Excellence #1479112
I am not saying Trump is an anti-semite, but your quote encourages it. Like the difference between the chacham and rashe in the Haggadah. They sound the same, but the Chasan Sofer explains that the chacham uses similar language in order the rashe should think that he has a comrade in wickedness, saying you are a rashe I am also a rashe, and thereby he reveals himself. Similarly, if Trump is not careful with his language, he encourages the white nationalist to think that he is also an advocate of their cause.
Did Joseph cite the source? Would the source be Rav Miller ztzl or the web site?February 27, 2018 10:01 pm at 10:01 pm in reply to: President Donald Trump, Oheiv Yisroel Par Excellence #1479096
News: 57% more anti-semitic incidents in 2017 encouraged by Donald Trump.
If the web site collected all Rav MIller’s public shiurim isn’t that time and work that gives them some right over others?
I am confused. Who gave the rights to the website to distribute Rav Miller’s Torah?
It could be. We find by Chanukah who insists to use shemen zayis because that caused the miracle. Here also the Biur Halocha mentioned above, says that we are celebrating the drunkenness that brought the miracles through wine at the sudah.
The word לבסומי used in Shulchan Aruch Arech Chaim 695;2 from Tractate Megilla 7:2 as traslated by Rashi meaning to get drunk with wine.
It says ובתורתו the Torah is his. We pasken רב שמחל על כבודו, מחל not בזיונו.
Does not דיני דמלכותא דיני apply?
I think they are concerned that Rav Miller will not be respected by the comments on his shiurim, not so much the copyright infringement.
I know like sippur yetzias mitzraim there is constantly a new chiyuv after you drink untll you fall asleep, when you fall asleep there is no new chiyuv.
I wrote under the topic Purim Question;
The Chidushei Harim has an interesting idea about drinking on Purim. A man collected and set aside a lot of money to do an averoh. He met a very poor family who needed the money. Having mercy on them, he completely forgot why he put aside the money and gave it to them. The heavenly court became very impressed with his deed and decided to grant anything he wished. They became afraid that he will wish something that they are not ready to grant him, the redemption. So, they decreed that his whole life he will have to be drunk to be out of his mind. Purim is a very sacred day where they grant any wish כל הפושט יד נותנים לו whoever stretches up his hand is granted whatever he wants. We can ask for the redemption but it might not be time yet, so the chachomim decreed to be drunk this day.
The word עד in עד דלא ידע is not inclusive but drink until you cannot differentiate but stop a little before or until you fall asleep.
The mitzva of drinking is not a mitzva by itself but part of the sudah to be get lighthearted as explained before.
The Biur Behalacha 695:2 explains that we drink because all the great miracles happened through drinking. First, Vashti was killed because of drinking as we see when Achashverus became sober he regretted what he did. Haman was decreed to be hanged at the meal , where their drinking most probably encouraged it.
A joke comes to my mind where the Jews said that Nasser will die on a Jewish holiday. How do you know that? Whatever day he will drop dead will be a Jewish holiday.
The article says that it actually happened on Hoshanah Rabba of 1946 when the judgements are finalized. Maybe it was called Purim festival because of the destruction of Amolek.
When I googled Purimfest 1946, I found that at the Nurnberg trial ten were executed because Goering ym”s committed suicide. This happened on Yom Kippur which is like Purim.
I forget about the large vov indicating the 6th millennium.
(not only small letters but out of the ordinary letters included, large or small found in the sons of Haman , vov and zayin in Vayzoso and tov and shiyen ותשז).
I was told that this Julius Streicher is implied in the small letters of the children of Haman in the Megilla 1946. תשז
It says in Kaheles חופר גומץ בו יפול one who digs a pit for the other will fall in it. In the Torah כי בדבר אשר זדו עליהם, in the pot they cooked they were cooked in it. Haman was hanged on the tree he prepared for Mordechai.
lesschumras you are right. Guilt they can retract but not acquitel except if tzodukim agree. see Rambam above.
What is the difference of eidei hackchoshe and eidei zomemim? In eidim zomemim they are destroying the credibility of the eidim whereas in eidei hackchoshe they are not destroying the eidim but their argument.
What he says is true when acquitting once there is a verdict on something that the צדוקים אין מודים בו but not on guilt. Rambam Sanhedrin 10:9
The Yalkut Shimoni 1091:2 Achashverus regretted killing Vashti saying where is Vashti. The seven rulers said you killed her. He said, and who gave me the advice? After this, we don’t hear from them anymore.
This hitting something or making noise by Haman is mentioned in the RMA SA O”CH 690:17 as discussed above. Minhogim are sacred and do not dismiss them. The Chasam Sofer said מנהג has the letters גהנם.
Health you are right. The reason we make noise by mentioning Haman’s name is because we want to erase his name yms”v to perform the mitzva of annihilation of Amalek.
The Chasam Sofer explains that since the sudah was made by Achashverus as a celebration for the beis hamikdash not being rebuilt anymore, it is considered like an a”z and filling themselves up before the sudah would not have helped because by a”z שלא כדרך אכילתו is also forbidden. It doesn’t say thatr they ate but they enjoyed themselves. We see that Hashem, even at the time we are sinning, is helping us with the demise of Vashti.
I heard that George Bernard Shaw was a non-conformist. He did not see any benefit in the brim of the hat so he cut it off. Even though, I think, it protects you from the sun rays.
Hashem’s name is not mentioned directly in the Megillah because the miracles are hidden. We must read Megillas Esther in order, night and day, recognizing the tzoras and hatzolah , by uncovering the hidden as the words Megillas Esther represents in its meaning.February 25, 2018 9:23 pm at 9:23 pm in reply to: Litvishe chasanim wearing frocks at their chasunas #1476712
Is the kitel worn on the outside or under a coat?
According the Rabbenu Bachaye the words כי תשא can mean to elevate or off with his head as the two servants of Paraoh. This depends on how we count the Bnei Yisroel. If we count them normally, it can bring a ch”v plague. Why? The above commentary explains, that if we look at the Bnei Yisroel as a whole, they are all righteous. But , if we count them normally, we separate the good and the bad. if we count with machtzis hashekel, we recognize that all belong together because individually we are only a half a person. Bolok recognized this. He said to Bilom, go to a place where you can only see part of them but not whole. Seeing the whole you can’t hurt them.
The Seder Hadoros under 3395 says that Vashti was reincarnated in the cow that was sold to a chasid and the cow did not want to plow on shabbos when the chasid whispered in her ear that it is shabbos today. This was a punishment for having Jewish girls work on shabbos.
Achashverus converted to Judaism because of this.
The Bnei Yisoschor says that it says in Eicho לא מצא מנוח Monoach was an am haaretz everyone knew כל המיצר לישראל נעשה ראש, whoever hurts Yisroel will be elevated, like Haman because Hashem wants to fight him and the greater they are the harder they fall.February 25, 2018 4:51 pm at 4:51 pm in reply to: President Donald Trump, Oheiv Yisroel Par Excellence #1476382

Is that why he hired Banon as his advisor?
See MB 62:2 to pronounce the words in K”S correctly is against the nature, but because he is fighting it, Hashem cools off the gehinam for him which is against its nature.
Maybe he is named after Joseph who went against his nature fighting his yetzer hora in whose zechus the yam split as written in the zetil katon 15, that is our assignment in this world.

As a married couple we made together a shiduch such that I knew the choson and my wife knew the kallah.
The sefer Tiferes Yanoson by Rebbe Rav Yanoson Eibshutz explains the Dor Haflogah that they built the tower in order to escape another flood by moving to the moon knowing that it is a place to settle.February 23, 2018 11:58 am at 11:58 am in reply to: Choson & Kallah Walking Together Into Wedding Hall – Jewish or Gentile? #1475501

There are two tables set up for the choson. A small one on the men’s side and a large one at the women’s side.
