    1. It’s the best metric for comparing different neighborhoods and pandemic phases with different testing rates.

    3. Herd immunity is not static. If the social behavior of a population changes, so would the % needed for herd immunity. Weather may also play a role.

    and Rav Shmuel Aurbach

    among many others.

    You cannot do any act that allows or encourages a Sakana, even if the other person thinks it’s Mutar. In fact, one is obligated to be Mechalel Shabbos to save someone from danger, even if it’s against that persons will, and even if the risk is only small, and even if it’s only a long term risk!

    In reality what this Baal Hamachsir is (unintentionally) doing is helping cause families of Almanos and Yesomim. And he’d never even know who.

    “L’maaseh there will be people smoking on pesach/chol hamoed. Do you want them being over on two aveiros, or rather only one?”

    1) Many simply don’t smoke on Pesach and some even quit as a result – ????? ????? ???????.

    2) It certainly created legitimacy for smoking, especially when they advertise in some of the religious newspapers here in Israel bragging about their Hehsher,

    3) At the very least there should be a disclaimer regarding general Halachik permissibly. Would anyone give a Hechser to a salmon & beef sandwich?

    4) And then you of course have the issue of Chilul Hashem. Last year when they advertised the Hechsher it generated some horrible Facebook posts among secular Israelis.

    sh0wj0e “i know plenty of non smokers who use esigs”

    Are they ever-smokers? Are you talking about experimentation or continious use?

    My source is study titled “Use of electronic cigarettes in Great Britain”

    and review titled “Electronic cigarettes: review of use, content, safety, effects …”

    The Goq “even if i was a smoker i would wait awhile to see what the health affects turn out to be”

    If you were a smoker (& not quitting), you should switch to something with a significantly lower toxicological profile asap. You’re taking a definite risk by waiting. There’s no chance that these things are worse than real cigs with 5,000 known chems, 40-80 known carcinogens and >200 known cardiovascular & pulmonary toxicants.

    As someone who did much research on the topic (even though I’m not a smoker)

    1) They work by evaporating the solvents propylene glycol and/or glycerin. Being that these have a high boiling point, they quickly condense into an ultra-fine aerosol. These solvents also are widely used in the food industry as flavoring carriers. They are also widely used in medicinal inhalers (which work differently).

    2) They’re orders of magnitude less dangerous than is smoking, based on toxicological studies and some tests for acute cardiac and pulmonary clinical effects. There are no major known side effects for those switching. Though, some may experience dry-throat.

    Two cases of lipoid pneumonia were reported – due to someone putting oil into the liquid.

    The most important toxicological review on the topic is titled “Peering Through the Mist..”

    3) You can get EC w/o nicotine, however there’s a significant difference in cessation levels among EC with nic and w/o.

    4) There’s almost no level of continuous use among youth who never smoked. Experimenting among never-smokers is rare (~0.5%).

    Try “Drop-Smoke,” in BMG it’s extremely popular and it’s Kosher too. I asked people and they all seem to like it. They have a website.

    Also, I have friends who used e-cigs and claim they enjoy them, but then a year later they’re smoking again (some of them). It seems the best strategy with e-cigs, are to use different levels of nicotine juice, slowly weaning yourself off. But then keep it in case of a craving

    “But not neccesarily in their final form. For example, one of the scrolls has Tehillim 145 (Ashrei), but it has a “nun” passuk (whereas, by the time of the Gemara, it was well established that there the “nun” passuk was omitted).”

    That’s not a proof. In many scrolls this group tried amending the variations between Kri and Ksiv – to make them “grammatically correct,” similarly they would’ve tried amending what would seem to them “the missing Nun” of Ashrei – as they were a group which seemingly were Tzedukim and beleive in Torah Shebal Peh

    “is it better to not do something cause your a good prson, or cause hashem said so. killing for example”

    I take “not do something cause your a good prson” as the other (human) party’s interests being an END in the decision. The question being when being Mekayem a B”O lachaveiro Mitzvah, should the other person or Hashem be the end of your decision.

    After thought, this great question is fundamentally flawed: G-d is not only plain “the Creator,” but the Ultimate Good. Thus, you cannot separate the two sides of the question, and doing the mitzvah for Hashem’s sake, is doing it for morality’s sake and for the Mitzvah’s sake at once.

    Despite what YFL said, archeology, for the most part, doesn’t “directly” anything.

    Furthermore, for anyone with questions regarding archeology, R’ Gil Student did a great job in his articles at Aishdas dot org slash toratemet. Of note, Kenneth Kitchen — a leading scholar of the ancient Near-East, and probably today’s leading egyptologist — wrote a veritable telephone-book sized volume to counter biblical minimalists — who in his words “didn’t do their homework.”

    Also see with comments, the recent guest series on Torah Musings by Dr Joshua Berman – a Lecturer in the Department of Bible at Bar-Ilan University. He claims that those studying treaty forms are highly convinced of a strong biblical parallel with the Hittite vassal treaties of the 13th century BCE and do not share consensuses that exist in other fields of bible study.

    Also, you can refer to my previous comment if you don’t consider the remaining puzzle-work inevitable for a subject this kind.

    Moshe Rabeinu your approach is not one of Moshe Rabeinu. He explicitly says (Devarim 13:2-4) explicitly says G-d would test us with suggestions arising from empirical evidence:

    See also Sifre ad loc.

    It seems pretty explicit; according to R. Yose HaGlili G-d may actually test us by changing the laws of science! Whereas R. Akiva holds G-d would only do so having formerly reliable sources send us false information.

    Bottom line, according to Moshe Rabeinu G-d will likely test us from science. All the more so according to a plethora of our own sources showing that before Moshiach will be a time of great ???? ????.

    “All of science is based on the inductive application of the observed to the unobserved”

    Our knowledge of the outside world is based statistical extrapolation of patterns in our minds sense impressions. The patterns may be random, but probability rules out (yes, I know U dont like the phrase “probability rules out” and that “Ur almost sure about that”) a pattern forming from pure randomness.

    The statistical extrapolation of our sense impressions are representative of a reality what we refer to as the co-ordinates of space-time. The statistical extrapolations of the patterns of space-time coordinates is known as physical science. Barring extrapolation from observed to unobserved, would require that observation is a causative factor in the observed phenomenon – something which is complex in a specific way, and thus mathematically unlikely. Furthermore, even if observation is a causative factor, then “physical science” would still be the science of observed phenomena and you can still make inductions to the observed phenomenon.

    It should be noted that Rav Moshe’s Teshuvah was about relying on a manager of the company, where the information was given meant for a Choleh not Kasharus, and there was liability (it may not be that not all these were criteria for the Heter).

    In the new Rav Moshe book it brings that he told Rav Avrohom Blumenkrantz he can/should pasken even “SHVEREH” Shailos,( ???? ???? ??? ??? look up Rabbi Blumenkrantz in the index).

    On the other hand Rav Belsky has told a Talmid to do the opposite of whatever it says in the Pesach Book.

    I heard Rav Belsky criticize the method of calling up a company or writing to them asking if their product contains xyz, saying that any info a company would give would generally be in a way that won’t cause them any liability and that companies are careful about that, and many times the one responding to the inquiry doesn’t even have full access to the info necessary.

    I think he was referring to Rabbi Blumenkrantz’s method, though i’m not 100% sure. I’d apreciate if anyone has more info.

    “If such a video exists, tell us where to find it; otherwise, I will assume it doesn’t exist” PH wrote “I myself, saw the video last week Sunday morning at the shul of TriStar in Woodbourne” so it’s a ????? ?????? ??????. Ask anyone who stays in that area, it shouldn’t be hard to find out I know people who went to that ?????. Also the audio Rav Chaim Kanievski is now available at this link: torashatcheiles.blogspot.com. Twisted ???? in the Rambam included blue (see ???? ??? ?????”? ?? ????”? ??).

    AVihaben wrote “I sincerely doubt he said it in the context quoted. At minimum he was quoted grossly out of context” I’m not sure what the big chidush is to you that he said if your convinced it’s Tcheiles your ????? to wear it.

    Patur Aval Asur-

    “???? is more of a normal word to describe green”

    You’re again basing yourself on modern usage. ??? ???? is not green (see ??? ??? ?”? ????’ ???”? ???”? ??).

    Ok, so there’s a ?????? if maybe an Acharon holds it’s green. That doesn’t carry weight against the Mesorah ??? ?????? ????? that ???? is blue, geonim, all (or almost all) Rishonim, scores of Acharonim, ????? ??????, ????? ?????, Philo and Josephus who himself saw the ???? ?????.

    I wrote “Also the itself can be green or blue” I meant to write “Also the ?? itself can be green or blue” so obviously both are ???? ???.

    ???? ??? ???????? there’s the 2 latest ???? ??????? have allot

    about this shaila and there’s an Igros Moshe that says ??? ???????? ?????? for Tefilin that’s ??? ???? where you don’t have another pair.

    I think murex is a ???? so it’s not ???? ????? here.
