    How about thinking by yourself about what they gave you and what you wish for them rather than someone else’s ideas?

    If whistling is assur on shabbos that would suggest that it is muttar during the week, no?

    There are tens of teshuvos on the subject of brain death which rely on Rav Moshe’s psak as authoratative. Are they all to be ignored in light of the fact that everyone on this list except for me believes that the forgery is true?

    Laskern –

    when you wrote: – Tosfas in Baba Metzia 59:2 starts לא בשמים הוא, can be explained that the Bas Kol revealed that what it says אחרי רבים להטעות, we go after the majority, which can mean either in quantity or quality , is in quantity.

    Perhaps you meant אחרי רבים להטות ….. even though the רבים occasionally is wrong also,

    Gaon –
    My comment was aimed at the moderators of the group.
    Who decides who can be defamed?

    If someone were to say that Rav Moshe Feinstein zt”l copied a teshuva from someone else or that Rav Aharon Kotler zt”l forged someone’s signature, would the moderator not censor it? I would hope that he would.

    I am not comparing the personalities or their galdus b’torah but merley pointing out that I would expect the moderators to prohibit anything which might be libelous. No damage can caused by being machmir in that .

    Perhaps I am missing something here and I am new here so maybe I need orientation.

    Am I the only here who is disturbed by the rechilut/ lashon hara about a Rav (which is relevant regardless of the truth of the rumor) .

    To the best of my knowledge, Rav Moshe Feinstein’s psak about brain death was well known in his lifetime. What right does someone have to blatantly spread such a ruimor?

    And what exactly is the relevance of zaken mamreh? Is Rabbi Tendler being accused of rebelling against the Sanhedrin?

    It appears that I probably should not be a member of such a group.

    Why does the mdoerator allow the following to be written?

    “it’s known that Rabbi Tendler forged the teshuvah on brain death”

    Is it open season on calling Talmidei Chachamim dishonest?

    I would expect the moderators to take action on this issue immediately.

    In the early 1970s the Vaad Hayeshivos in Eretz Yisroel suggested shortening the bein hazmanim. Rav Chaim Shmeulevitz, z”tl said that between the sefarimof the Torah there are three blank lines and if they are not there, the Sefer Torah is pasul.

    BY Maidel
    It souinds like you seriously want to learn Gemara. if so, why waste your precious time arguing with people who think that you are off the wall or off the derech? Enough arguing. Go out and learn! Or alternatively, go to the website of the Virtual Bet Midrash where you can get all the shiurim which you want, given by first class talmidei chachamim, under the heading of “Talmud”.
    Life is too short to waste your time on pointless arguments.

    The same is true about Bet Shearim. The burial caves there do not predate Rabi Yehuda haNossi.

    I don’t think that anything minted by Matitsyohu has ever been found. On the other hand, there is a wall “painting” found in a house which existed during Bayis Sheini which has a picture of the menorah with the branches curved.

    Might I remind everyone that Chazal say that the Ribbono shel Olam created and destroyed many worlds before ours? This would seem to defuse the entire issue.
    Happy Chanuka

    I am rather new here and rarely post. The following may be new to many of you and I am just reporting what was written. I am not able to properly represent Rav Aharon Lichtenstein zt”l, who was head and shoulders above all of us and who is no longer alive unfortunately. I ask that everyone treat him and his memory with respect even though you can obviously disagree agreeably, if you feel that you are on his level.

    Rav Aharon zt”l was fully aware of the dangers and halchic pitfalls which a medical student and a doctor encounter and nonethess felt that a doctor is involved, on an ongoing basis, in the fulfillment of the mitzva of “rapo yerapei”. It was clear to him that our society needs good doctors and good Jewish doctors, especially in israel.

    In a response to a talmid of his who considered entering medical school, Rav Aharon Lictenstein zt”l posited that training to be a doctor is considered “osek b’mitzva” ,
