Sam: You haven’t addressed gregaaron’s point early in the thread where he said:
Actually, I think we hold that purely al pi halacha, there is no reason that he CAN’T divorce her (last mishna in Gittin). It’s strongly discouraged, of course, but there’s a 3-way machlokes and I think we go the third way.September 16, 2011 5:11 pm at 5:11 pm in reply to: Halacha on Divorce #810513

I will say I would rather break shabbos and get an averia so that someone does not fall or get hurt. Let hashem decide if I was right or wrong.

How is the citation of the Sefer Chofetz Chaim Ch. 6 on lo yilbash out of context? And if the S”A permits trimming by a mustache, the implication would be it is different (i.e. not permitted) by a beard.September 15, 2011 4:12 pm at 4:12 pm in reply to: Am I the oldest person in the CR.

If the sheva mitzvos bnei noach have to do with torah, then democracy fits in to #7.
Using that logic you can equally say in North Korea that the hereditary communist dictatorship fits into the Torah.

No, Raphael Kaufman. In an ideal situation, halacha is enforced by court.

hello: Perhaps the fundamental point Rav Elyashev used to prohibit it is the same as the fundamental point the Chofetz Chaim used to prohibit it. Otherwise, why not clarify the point with Rav Elyashev?September 12, 2011 9:22 pm at 9:22 pm in reply to: Relationship advice! #1049256

mommamia22: Are you seriously suggesting that you are taking “virtual” advice from anonymous members of the cyber community over the assistance provided to you in real life? And you are assuming these anonymous posters have “more life experience” even though for all you know they may be 15 year old adolescents pretending to be 60 year old professors or grandparents — all while having a good time projecting their false virtual image to boot? And on as serious an issue as to leaving a marriage? Really?September 12, 2011 2:17 am at 2:17 am in reply to: how do Israelis shave? #809784
