    I just noticed the YWN login seemed to change to wordpress accounts. weird. YWN always used wordpress. It’s a great CMS for normal blogs. I do not know if they use wordpress.com or selfhost/.org

    i always liked the idea of letting only Leviim get public funding for learning. and maybe allow individual levi to swap places with a yisroel if they want.

    wouldn’t this system keep everyone happy?

    the gemara menachos basically says you need techeiles (unless the garment is ripped)
    Menachot 39b implies that a silk garment doesn’t need techeiles because its only derabanan
    the ramban said ‘R’ Zerachiah HaLevi did not wear any tzitzit his whole life’
    Meor is on the rif 11b shabbos (rif daf)

    the Ramban quotes the Maharam saying that one shouldnt wear tzitzis today because it requires tcheiles. In which case cotton or poly is better. using today’s tcheiles isn’t better in this regard because its unlikely the right type & tying pattern.

    i think i’ve seen his picture used as rat deterrence. not that I support that practice whatsoever. my point is people make strange things out of pictures of holy people and its very hard for me to tell much about a person even when seeing him live.

    There’s a new siddur that came out recently by rabbi Feigenbaum. It’s an amazing siddur made for teenagers that has translation, notes, and appendices. what is unique about is that it fills a void that is felt strongly by today’s youth. It addresses topics that most don’t such as why guys thank hashem for not creating them women and were men not created in His will.
    from as much as I’ve seen it so far it is an incredible work
