The Gemora mentions the incident where Raba shechted Rabbi Zeroh so the Rishonim forbade to get to this level because of its danger but others say that this was not literal but figurative. The word until in drink until he does not distinguish is not inclusive.
ושתי something about the Megillah, it says, להביא את ושתי המלכה, malkoh after Vashti but when she refused to come it says ותמאן המלכה ושתי malkoh is before Vashti explains the Malbim, Ahasverus said without me, you are nothing just Vashti. Vashti said, no I am a descendant of Nebuchadnezar, so I am a queen on my own and therefore she did not want to come besides the tail she grew.February 19, 2018 12:54 pm at 12:54 pm in reply to: Kallah Taking Chosson’s Last Name Upon Marriage- Jewish or Gentile? #1471865

The RMA 695:2 says that a person should drink as much too fall asleep, at which he cannot differentiate Haman and Mordechai, whom to bless and whom to curse. The Eyin Yaakov says that there is a logic to bless Haman because 48 neviim could not accomplish what he did, whereas there is also some logic to curse ch’v Mordechai for starting up with Haman for not bowing down to him so he would not know whom to bless and whom to curse. The truth of the matter is, explains the Chasam Sofer, that even though the others were able to bow down to Haman, Mordechai could not because Haman was his slave and so people will say that he is bowing down to an idol form Haman was wearing not to give respect to him.
Levi – לוי
It says תחת השמים לא תשכח by the annihilation of Amolek. If you take the letters under השמים for example under ה is ו and so on you get a gematria of 526 which adds up to the word שכור indicating even when you drunk don’t forget Amolek.
The word for marriage in hebrew is Nisuim to elevate that is to put each other on a pedestal and only see good in each other.

A man will not have anything to do with a woman having another man’s surname as long we apply the prefix Mrs.February 18, 2018 3:07 pm at 3:07 pm in reply to: Kallah Taking Chosson’s Last Name Upon Marriage- Jewish or Gentile? #1471398
I see the opposite in the Zohar she is either tied to the father before marriage or to the husband after marriage through her surname.
If your minhag is to put on Tefilin on Chal Hamoad put it on privately at home but not in public, if it is not the minhag hamakom.
The Baal Haturim explains that Mosheh Rabbenu’ s name is not mentioned in Parshas Tetzaveh because he asked to be erased from your book you wrote. It looks like this is a punishment. It could be that this is a commemoration of his greatness. His two outstanding character traits are his compassion and humility. This could commemorate both as this statement above was said for the forgiveness of the Bnei Yisroel of the sin of the golden calf. It also indicates his humility feeling that he is not worthy to be mentioned. The GRA says that this commemorates his yahr zeit which is every year at Parshas Tetzaveh.
The Ohr Hachaim in the beginning of Parshas Tetzaveh says that next redemption will come because of the zechus of Mosheh Rabbenu. Learning Torah lishmah will bring Moshiach. Could be that is why his name is not mentioned. The Gemora says that Haman did not know that Mosheh Rabbenu died on 7th of Ador and he was born on the 7th of Ador. That he died on 7th of Ador he knew? The simple explanation is died then because he was born then, but the Yaaros Dvash says that right away when he died he was reborn. We get the strength to be mechadesh from Mosheh Rabbenu. It could be his name is not mentioned because this strength is hidden.
Look at the brim question that I mentioned where even on what kind of hat to wear we cannot agree.
The isur is not the goy doing a melochoh on shabbos because he can do it for his own benefit, but doing a melochoh for the benefit of a Jew.
There are others who are matir. I think the difference is that a goy has a mind doing it, even if told erev shabbos, on shabbos for the benefit of a Jew, whereas a shabbos clock has no mind.
I told you that you are a Yochid Mumcheh. I did not read the whole Teshuva so I jumped to conclusions.
It says כשם משנכנס אב ממעטין בשמחה כך משנכנס אדר מרבין בשמחה the same way as when Av comes we diminish joy the same Ador comes we add joy. How are the same. Rabbi Yosef Baumgarten explained that fasting we certainly fast for the heaven’s sake but not eating. We should behave similarly when it comes to eating. Even though we don’t currently have the Beis Hamikdash, Purim gives reason to hope that even though they sinned at the party of Achasveros, they were still helped by the killing of Vashti. Even though we are not worthy of our redemption, Hashem will help us to bring the redemption in our time speedily.
I get the impression that by cooking where no action is involved it is permitted to use a shabbos clock but not by anything else besides putting on a light.
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.
DaasYochid, please explain isn’t A/C similar to cooking that once it is turned on, no action is necessary?
Joseph, thank you for clearing up how the order is created for posts.
It says, create for me a temple so I should be able to rest within you. The Meforshim say that through the Mikdash, Hashem rests within the heart of each of us.
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.
So the man should see an opposite view, feeling and thinking, when he wants to sway from Hashem.
Who is the father and mother?
The Little I Know, see what I said on the topic of hachocho in the name of the Shlah Hakodash about a letz.
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.
Mishneh Berurah (91,10) in the name of the Bach covering with the hand is no good because it is part of the body but the sleeve is ok.
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.February 16, 2018 1:03 pm at 1:03 pm in reply to: Kallah Taking Chosson’s Last Name Upon Marriage- Jewish or Gentile? #1470626
There is nothing wrong with it tying the wife to the husband. It helps against adultery.
Is covering your head halacha or midas chasidus?
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.
אדם לומד מה שלבו חפץ a person learns what his heart desires. When it comes to learning and Avodas Hashem we have to bring someone to recognize the sweetness of the Torah and Avodah. This will encourage him to shteigen to Leilech Michoyil el Choyil to elevate oneself from level to level.February 16, 2018 11:34 am at 11:34 am in reply to: How to increase Torah learning amongst Klal Yisroel (Kollel, Shiurim…) #1470601
YWN with its coffee room is very helpful. Create chavrusas using the speaker phone.
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
The Baal Akedah on the ten commandments לא יהי לך says that currently the greatest idol is money. People rush after it forgetting who has bestowed them with it.
I don’t think the 2nd amendment applies anymore. It was created at the time when there was no police and people had to protect themselves.
Didn’t Yaakov Avinu do the first cloning with the sheep?
I agree the psak was about a steam ship where the person is being rocked. I think a car would have a similar ruling. Other poskim are matir for that reason.
