Hmm you’re right, I was being too harsh. Not sure why I reacted that way, I think I was trying to figure out whether OP was trolling.
what a backwards question.
who’s the best person to talk to?
what’s the best thing to eat?
what’s the best thing to read?
Identify what you want your child to succeed at, what your world perspective is and then ask what Yeshiva is suitable to match those needs.

@phil the great halachic leaders of the past had no issue with it (Shulchan Aruch, Ramah, Rambam) and the current stance of today’s mechanchim are opposed to it. It’s a fluid issue.December 27, 2018 2:03 pm at 2:03 pm in reply to: Corporal punishment must remain an option for teachers #1653010
@catchyourself I’m well aware of the Maharal’s understanding of the Torah’s civil justice system, however, I very much doubt we would feel comfortable using public flogging, beheading and pouring lead down a person’s throat as a government policy used as a scare tactic that is seldom applied. The fact is that the sensitivities we have in the current era are extremely sensitive to physical punishment. I feel I must reiterate that I don’t believe in corporal punishment, similarly to the view of most mechanchim. However i am mature enough to understand that this is a result of growing up in a very sensitive culture that doesn’t reflect the Torah’s view on these issues.December 27, 2018 1:43 pm at 1:43 pm in reply to: Corporal punishment must remain an option for teachers #1652970
@phil Rav Ovadia was commenting on the Rambam who paskens that a teacher should only hit with a small belt and not a heavy instrument. Rav Ovadia qualifies that certainly a father who is hitting should also only use a small belt and not in anger.December 27, 2018 1:22 pm at 1:22 pm in reply to: Corporal punishment must remain an option for teachers #1652953
I think to a larger extent, we tend to disagree with the more draconian punishments listed in the Torah, and validate our feelings by thinking the Torah must ‘not have meant it for us’. Imagine if we would hold public floggings every time someone transgressed a lo saaseh with hasraah. The public outrage would be insane. Our 2018 minds can’t handle thinking that physical punishment is ever appropriate, yet the Torah is okay with it.December 27, 2018 1:10 pm at 1:10 pm in reply to: Corporal punishment must remain an option for teachers #1652944
@phil ahh and this is what we call discussion. You argue that corporal punishment is permitted in certain cultural settings and situations whil Joseph may argue that it can be extended to differing cultures. Welcome to the table.December 27, 2018 12:48 pm at 12:48 pm in reply to: Corporal punishment must remain an option for teachers #1652934
@RebYidd I agree with you there. I think that the results of corporal punishment today would be traumatizing and harmful.December 27, 2018 12:04 pm at 12:04 pm in reply to: Corporal punishment must remain an option for teachers #1652895
Unequivocally? Phil have you actually spent any time looking into he subject or are you so horrified by the subject matter that you can’t differentiate between pork as tarfus and an educational discussion? Rav Shlomo Wolbe z”l was known to say that hitting is never appropriate nowadays, however Rav Ovadia Yosef z”l allowed it, cautioning one should not hit during moments of anger. Similarly the Peleh Yoetz (around 200 years ago) allowed hitting students except in cases where one recognizes that the student will react by rebelling even stronger.December 26, 2018 8:19 pm at 8:19 pm in reply to: Corporal punishment must remain an option for teachers #1652649
Wow, seriously you guys get triggered so easily. Joseph is raising a legitimate point of view that was followed in the times of the Gemara, to the point of death sometimes (the Gemara qualifies that this Rebbe was let go for hitting too hard)! Yes, mechanchim nowadays don’t find this to be an appropriate form of discipline anymore, at the same time everyone should stop freaking out and calling Joseph a rasha and what-not for raising an interesting question. I don’t advocate hitting children, but I can appreciate hearing arguments on both sides for the sake of discussion.December 9, 2018 9:23 pm at 9:23 pm in reply to: Specific stock picks amidst the current market volatility !!!!!!! #1640132

this comment section is great entertainment as usual. People losing their minds over a stuffed mascot and an obscure comment in a kids video.
simple solution: paraphrase instead of direct quote.
fyi – a quote from a body of work, even word for word is permissible as long as it’s credited to the source.
Hi, I have some experience with this. The blood work should indicate whether there are strep titers and how high. This will confirm whether PANDAS is at play here. Antibiotics will get rid of the infection, but persistent symptoms might require IVIG treatment to bring the symptoms to an end. Let me know if you need more info on this.
