Adam muad laolam is only by monetary cases. By someone murdering someone else, there are different rules. On purpose, close to purpose and by accident.November 22, 2021 9:26 am at 9:26 am in reply to: What seforim does every Frum house need? #2031868
@ maskildoresh But thank you for standing up for kovid hatorahNovember 22, 2021 8:22 am at 8:22 am in reply to: What seforim does every Frum house need? #2031817
@ maskildoresh I meant no disrespect to reb akiva eiger. I meant extra for iyun and I wrote the wrong word. But I am glad that you fulfill the mantra of the site: quick to judge and to attack. Some times people make mistakes. I would change it now if the mods let from fluff to extras. I have a lot of respect for reb akiva eiger.November 21, 2021 10:29 pm at 10:29 pm in reply to: What seforim does every Frum house need? #2031663
I know many people who would agree with you and I would be incline to agree with you. But I personally have not gotten the “pull” from reb akiva eiger. And I know many other people who may not understand his phsatim. So that is why I didn’t put it on the list. But you didn’t put it on your list. Do you feel that everyone should have the tools to learn iyun or are you assuming that everyone is including the people who don’t learn iyun?November 21, 2021 9:49 pm at 9:49 pm in reply to: What seforim does every Frum house need? #2031648
I was talking about every home. I use all these seforim and they are helpful for both inyan and bekisus. If one does not have the skill to learn in depth, than one should have more english seforim to aid him. I did not mention rabbi akiva ayier, tofos rid, etc… because theses are extras. The ones I mention, I feel are important and very useful to understand rashi/tofos and halacha.November 21, 2021 7:37 pm at 7:37 pm in reply to: What seforim does every Frum house need? #2031583
I would say Tur, not Kovetz Meforshim on every/multiple meschanta, Rivta, Tzalch, Pnei Yeshua, Eyin Yaakov, English seforim on Kashrus, Brachos, children, niddah and shabbos.May 26, 2021 3:06 pm at 3:06 pm in reply to: Favorite herring flavors? #1977655
I really enjoy herring. Is it true that herring isn’t cooked?March 18, 2021 4:24 pm at 4:24 pm in reply to: Swimming shirts #1958580
The A”H’s heter is based off that since there is no hirhur therefore there is no problem of erva. The whole sugyia there in brachos is based off this assumption. There is a difference in “proper” erva which is forbidden even without concern of hirhur and between the additions that chazal added that are also forbidden because they generally lead to hirhur even if at that moment there is no hirhur.
But I don’t think you properly answer the OP’s questionMarch 18, 2021 2:00 pm at 2:00 pm in reply to: Swimming shirts #1958401
“we follow the custom of the current behavior” may or may not be a good argument but the proof from the A”H does not have legs to stand on. He is discussing that since rm”l married woman go with their hair uncovered, we can make brachos in front uncover hair. He holds it is forbidden to walk around uncovered both there and in even haever. The sugiya of making brachos has nothing to do with walking around half naked. There is an iyan to get dressed underneath covers. That would be more comparable than making brachos.
As in a side, We can make brachos in front of other man because their bodies to us isn’t eruvah just like a woman to another woman.
All the bestMarch 18, 2021 11:03 am at 11:03 am in reply to: Swimming shirts #1958299
With all due respect reb eliezer, that Aruch Hashulan has nothing to do with the question. There is no concept of erurah by the man besides for the evurah (and maybe the other private part) but besides for that, one may make brachos opposite a man wearing only undergarments. The chiddish of the Aruch Hashulan is not needed. And no one I know applies it to anywhere but to hair.
His question is based off sensitivity. Should one wear a shirt or not?December 31, 2020 3:52 pm at 3:52 pm in reply to: Tznius — Not Directly Handing Items Between Men and Women #1934135
It is an argument among the posikim. I believe it is discussed in aven haazer (shulan aruch). The general halacha is that it is muttar. But some still say it is a good idea to do it in order to avoid potential touching.July 16, 2019 8:01 am at 8:01 am in reply to: A Study in Trolls: Updated #1758672
@Kluger Yid. I believe that you have made some good points but I disagree with one premise of yours. Namely, the punishment reveals the severity of the sin. I don’t know fully understand why, but punishment doesn’t always reveal the severity of sin. For instance, it is brought down by many seforim that zera levavtala is a huge sin but it is “only” a lav. Other one is hugging or kissing niddah (or any other non relative) because one has to give up his life even though it is a lav but not shabbos. There are other examples but I can’t remember off the top of my head.
Your points of Western thinking is valid and I am only coming to argue on this one point.June 15, 2019 10:33 pm at 10:33 pm in reply to: Pilpul vs. Halacha #1742693
Neville, you missed my point that if they learnt differently, there would be a different flaw. (like they couldn’t learn in depth). Obviously, the flaw we have now is that they don’t learn halacha. You can easily fix it by learning halacha during halacha seder (which is at least a half hour a day). You have built in the system to learn halacha. And many do have a upbringing in halacha and learn during that time. The ones that don’t do this have this problem. You feel it is a majority but I disagree. I do feel though, that they incapable of deriving what the correct halacha is, since they never learnt it in depth. But they do know about the same amount of halacha as their wives. (if not, the difference is minor, not major).June 14, 2019 3:54 pm at 3:54 pm in reply to: Pilpul vs. Halacha #1742628
So whats the problem Neville? The bochrim either become a baal battim or get married and stay in learning and than learn halacha from their wives 🙂 . In my personal experience, the guys that learn halacha (Tor and S”A) during the afternoon seder, which is not the majority, tend to learn more halacha regarding Shabbos, daily life and niddah.
As in a side, all systems have flaws, so it may be beneficial to point out the flaws in our current system, but it doesn’t negate the flaws if we learnt differently. It is a though question to answer which negative is worse than the other one. So hence, my comment about our current limud.June 14, 2019 9:17 am at 9:17 am in reply to: Pilpul vs. Halacha #1742445
I think our Yeshiva system answers your question. But you don’t have a question, you just want to complain that no one who learns all day knows any halacha. Which may or not be true (I personally disagree), but our Yeshiva system was set up by Gedolaim. So this post and your post is a waste of time…….June 3, 2019 8:34 pm at 8:34 pm in reply to: Recommendation for shas #1737544
I recommend the Vilna Shas. It is only 270 and it is beautiful print. I personally like it because the the pages of the Rif is the same as most shases( sura hadaf) and there is list of poskim on the side of the gemera that are quoted by the gemera, rashi and tofos. I personally use them all the time.May 16, 2019 9:51 pm at 9:51 pm in reply to: How did Chabad change from being Anti Zionist to Pro #1728313

As total side topic; Rebbetzin, dog poop isn’t a problem for brachos. Only when you have your dog poop on hides does it have a problem of saying a bracho.March 29, 2019 12:00 pm at 12:00 pm in reply to: Mishnayos are the key to Shas #1704749
I have learnt Mishnayos and I think that one can’t understand Tumah/Tarharah fully without learning Seder Tarahos. Mishanyos is a “easy” way to finish Shas and is a Key to Shas as you put it. I highly recommend learning Mishnayos with the Tiferious Yisrael instead of the RAV (if you can’t do both) as he explains everything in great detail.March 14, 2019 3:04 pm at 3:04 pm in reply to: Ad D’lo Yada for Teenage Boys #1696203
To little I know: According to most Rishomin, they learn that one must get drunk. They all argue about the amount. ONE Rishon, Rabbinue Efraim, says that is forbidden. However, we don’t hold like him. The S”A holds literally Ad Dlo Yada and the Rama mentions the more lenient pasak. However, he ends off with “whatever you have a LOT or a little as long as you intend for kovad Shmayim”. It is clear that the Rama is saying that there is a mitzah to get smashed on purim. You can’t complain on being get drunk. You can only complain against the people who are only fulfilling the first part of his statement and not the second half.March 6, 2019 3:16 pm at 3:16 pm in reply to: Your cheap car stories #1690257
@whitecar On the car service record it records all oil changes that were done by a mechanic. The mechanic has to put it into the system. Obviously, if one does it privately it won’t show on the record.March 1, 2019 12:13 am at 12:13 am in reply to: Your cheap car stories #1687992
Don’t you have to change your oil on your lease? I thought that if you didn’t, than the leasing company can fine you. I agree that a private seller is better, but I have found that either they are overpriced or the car will require work after purchasing it.February 27, 2019 1:59 pm at 1:59 pm in reply to: Your cheap car stories #1686328
I have bought two used cars so far. My first was for 4500 and it lasted a year. Hopefully, my next one will last longer. I feel that buying a used cars, especially cheap ones, are not dependable. Buying a used car after it was leased may be a good idea.January 28, 2019 11:08 pm at 11:08 pm in reply to: Life of my HighSchool son #1670180

Funny, my Mishana says that one should DAVEN for the kingdom. It makes no mention of the specifically saying a tefillah (written by non-chazal) at kiras hatorah PERMANTLY. Also, this has nothing to do with saying a mishibrech for the IDF soldiers. Want to say tellim for the state? That is a complete different discussion.January 2, 2019 7:11 pm at 7:11 pm in reply to: The Killing of Nahal Haredi Soldiers and the Anti Draft Protests #1656510
anon1m0us: Why should you dictate how one or even a group of people do hakaros hatov? There are halichik problems of saying that teffilah (for example, one can not institute a PERMANENT addition teffilah that was not compose by chazal). Why can’t they express it in other ways?
If you claim that they don’t have any hakaros hatov, than I disagree.January 2, 2019 2:30 pm at 2:30 pm in reply to: The Killing of Nahal Haredi Soldiers and the Anti Draft Protests #1656346
Can all these posts be sum up in the following: The zionist want the chardiem to serve because of hakaras hatov and the chardiem are saying that we can’t serve. They aren’t denying hakaras hatov , they just aren’t doing it the way the Zionist want them to.December 25, 2018 11:30 pm at 11:30 pm in reply to: The Killing of Nahal Haredi Soldiers and the Anti Draft Protests #1651966

let me guess, all the MO want everyone to serve and all the Yeshivish/Chardiem don’t want to serve…..

I agree that one shouldn’t fly to close to shabbos. However, feed went a little (or a lot) over the top. People should anticipate delays and plan accordingly. While I will personally never want to drive to the Catskills on a friday, it would be preomus to decide that everyone must do so.November 18, 2018 10:49 pm at 10:49 pm in reply to: The world is in a state of Geula- and don’t misunderstand us! #1625811
Syag, She never said that she and the Rebbe loved Rav Shach and Rav Kolter. She just repeated her statement that he loved every yid.

He is refering to Daf Yud Dalad amud aleph. However, he is incorrect. If you look there, E”Y paskened for a Rosh Yeshiva that sinai is better. But the gemera ends with an argument about which is better (for non-R”Y) .October 25, 2017 6:48 pm at 6:48 pm in reply to: divorce prevention tips! #1389886
To the OP, it is easier to avoid a major mistake than it is to be a good husband/wife. To get more practical advice, you are better off for asking advice what you should do. My tip, housework jobs isn’t dependent on gender and nothing is anyone jobs. Whatever you and your spouse work out together is fine. It may take some time in the marriage, like a few months, for you to figure it out.October 18, 2017 7:35 pm at 7:35 pm in reply to: difference between “stama” and “safek” #1386554

Moshe, depending on your level of CY, you either have to make sure a OUD product doesn’t contain milk (because CS equipment is fine) or have to avoid it entirely (because CS equipment is a problem). Either way, both can sometimes be inconveniencing. Either way, Justsmile should just ask his LOR, just like everyone said.October 18, 2017 1:29 pm at 1:29 pm in reply to: What should the Second Amendment say? #1385349

Why is the first part needed?October 18, 2017 1:08 pm at 1:08 pm in reply to: difference between “stama” and “safek” #1385303
I don’t know this subject so well, but stama generally means that we can assume that it is use for A”Z, while safek means that we have a doubt. The Shach is saying that since it is the regular way of villages to create their statues for A”Z, we have to assume that it was built in this village for A”Z as well. However, it is the normal way for cities to build the statues for beauty. Therefore, we can assume that it was not used for A”Z and we don’t even have a doubt about it. However, if in the village case, there is a reason to doubt if the statue was built for beauty or A”Z, we are machimir and treat it like A”Z. I hope that this is helpful.October 18, 2017 10:03 am at 10:03 am in reply to: Are all these protests in Jerusalem really a kiddush hashem? #1384990
Take2, I can’t believe that you are degrading Rav Auerbach! He is a gadol. Period. The halacha of Yachid vrabim halacha krabim doesn’t Hass Vashalom mean that the Yachid is a nobody. Rather it means in HALACHA, we go like the rabim. However, the Yichid’s students can go like the Yichid. And anyhow, this is a case of haskafah, so your logic is flawed.October 17, 2017 9:04 pm at 9:04 pm in reply to: Are all these protests in Jerusalem really a kiddush hashem? #1384782
It seems to me that everyone is being very judgmental about the protests. They are being called animals and other names by many posters. If they are following Rav Auerbach’s instructions, people have no right to insult them. Does anyone <b>really know<b> that they are not listening to Dass Torah or are they just assuming that they are not? If they are following Dass Torah, please stop insulting them. It doesn’t matter if your Dass Torah says the opposite. They are doing what they know is right.September 19, 2017 1:57 pm at 1:57 pm in reply to: Why its important to show pictures of Married Couples #1366928
Meno, if you find it aspiring, good for you. I personally don’t feel that way. Even so, it doesn’t prove the OP’s point that we need these pictures. We don’t need good chazzans but we need A chazzan. A nice one makes davening nicer. A picture which could be problematic, because we don’t want to show pictures of woman, isn’t needed. It is at most a nice thing.September 19, 2017 10:18 am at 10:18 am in reply to: Shmiras einayim sunglasses and covered bus windows #1366699

I don’t understand the premise here. Why do you need a picture of a happy couple to teach you to love your spouse? This picture or any other picture of a happy couple doesn’t teach you anything about marriage. All it shows is a husband and a wife sitting/standing together. Which like WinnieThePoo said, can be even by a couple with a bad marriage.September 18, 2017 2:03 pm at 2:03 pm in reply to: Why its important to show pictures of Married Couples #1366311
All that you proved was that a man should love his wife. I agree. But you didn’t prove that woman should be in any picture, wedding or magazine.
