    Fakemaven: yeshuos malko treats nignaz as literally. That disclaimer at the end simply says that if techeles is 100% rediscovered without any doubt or dispute, then obviously it’s no longer nignaz. But until then, it’s nignaz, and any dye substance is bechezkas not techeles until it’s vadai otherwise. Keep looking, and while you are at it, let me know when you find the תחש

    Fakemaven again quoting out of context.

    Here what Rav Eliyashiv actually wrote.
    והנה טענת הבית הלוי נגד התכלת של הרבי מרדזין ז”ל
    הוא שאם הדג היה במציאות וגם הוצאת צבעו היה ידוע בכל זמן
    מהזמנים מעת שנפסקה התכלת מישראל ועכ”ז לא לבשוהו אבותינו ה”ה כאילו יש לנו בקבלה ומסורת מאבותינו כי זה הדג וצבעו איננו החילזון והתכלת אף שיש בו כל הסימנים שסומנו בו חזל – ואנא לא ידענא מה עם ההמצאה אשר המציאו חוקרי זמנינו אם גם עליה חל הטענה הנל

    I don’t know if the bais halevis argument against the radziners , tecehels applies to the newly discovered techeles.

    I’m not understanding anything out of context. I’m simply quoting Rav eliyashiv who says (by quoting the yeshuos malko) that nignaz is understood כפשוטו. This was in response the the claim that “nobody” can possibly understand נגנז כפשוטו.

    The claim that the rishon as group all understand nignaz meaning something other than it’s basic understanding, is quite dubious. Be either way, I’ll Rav eliyashiv and the yeshuos malko decided for themselves whom they can argue with. I’ll simply follow 99% of contemporary poskim who for the past 15 years were simply not impressed and not convinced, that tzitzit strings dyed with murex is the mitzvah of techeles.

    והגאון מקוטנא בספרו ישועות מלכו ב’ כבר הוחזק אצל ישראל זה יותר מאלף שנה שנכנס התכלת, ופשט לשון הספרים פ’ ברכה ומדרשו של האריז”ל מסכים לזה שאין תכלת אלא בזמן בית המקדש.

    Sounds like נגנז means נגנז to them.

    I wrote “without objectively presenting the halachakic pros and cons”

    Quoting rabbonim to use as bait, and for a straw argument to knock down, is the definition of a one sides presentation.

    I saw it. Nothing new in there and no real details about the production of techeles. Mostly it was just some historical background about the use of blue dyes and a theory of why we lost techeles.

    Then two arguments for the use of techeles 1. There was an ancient blueish dye that was produced from the murex snail and we don’t know of any other candidates for Techeles, so it must be this. 2. Why not use murex dye on your tzitzis on the possibility this is the correct source of techeles.

    It was completely a one sided presentation, without objectively presenting the halachakic pros and cons of coloring ones tzitzes with murex dye.

    As long as the family hanhaga is the same. For example, Yeshivish Sefardi can marry Yeshivish Ashkenazi, Chasidish Sefardi can marry Chasidish Ashkenazi, Seryian Sefardi can marry Syrian Ashkenazi, etc. Minhagim and blood lineage barely matter. A very bad shiduch would be a boy from a very yeshivish low profile family, marrying into a fancy rich baalbatish girl. Even if they have the exact same same minhagim, great grandparents, father’s were chavrusos in the mir 25 years ago.

    A siddur for woman would be great. Why do woman need to be forced to use a men’s one size-fits-all siddur? There should be a siddur for woman with no tzitzis, no talis, no tefilin, no karbanos (woman don’t donate towards the karbanos tzibur), no tachnun (certainly no v’hu rachum) leave out weekday laining, maariv, kiddush lavana, tikun chatzos, and the list goes on. Woman deserve their own lightweight siddur and tehilim, without all the woman-unfriendly pages. Think about how much more a woman would daven if her siddur was more portable. No more flipping thru pages while hanging on to the bus. Do you think the few minutes a day that a woman has to daven, it should be most efficient?

    The mesora is lost, let’s move on. When Eliyahu comes he will reestablish mesora, until then it’s conjecture, you are not yotze a mitzva when the possibility if it is rotted in conjecture. It’s not a sofek it a shot in the dark. Next.

    (don’t compare this to the chazon ish and esrogim, where we know what an esrog is, we know what it looks like, but we want a mesora on a spesific esrog that it’s not from a murkav. That is what he said he rayos are as so good that the esros can be treated as if there is a mesoroa on it that it’s not murkav. over here, we don’t know the color, we don’t know the species, we don’t know the process, can be yotze tzitzis, etc.)

    1. “An error free version” implies that what we have has errors, and that is incorrect.

    2. “Scientist” have no authority in Torah.

    3. Our mesora is %100 correct, that’s what mesora is.

    4. The “matchs most exact record is meaningless”

    5. Chasairos V’Yesairos are not different girsaos.

    To the precious student..

    I received and read your letter. I must say that I have not reached a level where I can give advice to people, telling them exactly what to do. However, I will reply and respond to your remarks according to my limited understanding.

    It seems to me that you are trying very hard to grow in Torah and Yiras Shamayim and that you are certainly fulfilling your required efforts and Hishtadlus in this regard. However, you now find yourself in a position where you simply need help from outside. The logical explanation for this, is simply because all lofty and spiritual pursuits requires special assistance above and beyond our physical capabilities. Therefore, I am providing you with the name and address of someone who can surely help you.

    They call him God.

    Whoever will give you different advice, it is only a waste of your time to pursue such advice. Simply turn to the one who can truly help you (Hashem Yisborach) and grab hold of him and never let go until you achieve that which your heart desires!
