Re: Random Posts
One year the talmidim of R' Nachum made a Purim tisch. A bochur decided to make a joke and said it says in the parsha
ויהי בשלח פרעה את העם - ולא נחם

R' Nachum on the spot answered
דרך ארץ - פלשתים


The continuation goes like this:

In פרק במה מדליקין it says: ולא בחלב נחום - you are not allowed to use Nachum's oil/wax for Shabbos lights.

Why again are we discriminating against poor Nachum?

The answer is: Nachum had a candle factory in Mitzrayim and did not want to leave since he was doing good business selling all the candles for מכת בכורות.

Since he did not leave with כלל ישראל he was punished that we can not use his candles for Shabbos lights.....

Hope you get it.....

Re: All Halocha Shailos and teiffa Questions
What does the person gain by stating that straight out? If that's the halacha then that's the halacha.

Because if it's not stated from the beginning - it is considered ribis ketzutzah - because the general norm is accepted that the borrower will pay off the interest that he caused - it's considered as if you have actually agreed that he will pay the interest unless you specifically agree otherwise.....

Hope I was clear....

Re: 2019 Israeli election
Would anyone know where I could find info on the litvishe shita on the state of Israel in general and specifically voting?
 I was shmoozing with a friend today and he was all upset about what satmer is doing now with their asifa in The stadium this week and their ads that they put out, saying that Torah Jews dont believe in the zionist state. He was saying how its a chillul Hashem. So I answered him that the truth is, that our (litvishe/yeshivish) shita is much closer to what satmer holds than to what Netanyahu ( or more correctly the zionists of old) holds. And he was shocked, but I think Im right. Does anyone know of any books or a website that would explain it?
You have it wrong:

Satmar's main priority with this demonstration is not to protest against Bibi - it's to protest against most of Chareidi Jews and their Gedolim for not being in line with their "shitah"....

It is indeed terrible......

Re: Selling Chometz Some have the Minhag of tipping the Rabbi for this service and it's an opportunity to tip for all he does the whole year round....

An the Halachic side, I once heard that the reason we pay the Rabbi to sell the Chometz is because a "Shaliach" only has a Chazakah to carry out the "Shluchis" while a "Poel" can we more so rely on to carry out what he was paid to do....

Any issue to go to kvarim during the 9 days?

Don't think so - there is even an inyan to go on Tish B'av....

Re: Random questions.
Is it ok to say:
I seen a Jew...
or should it be
I seen a Jewish person...

I don't think it is correct to say "I seen..." altogether....

Re: Re: The current state of COVID-19 in Israel
🤷‍♂️ I like to think as myself as a pretty tolerant person, but I don't see what the heter is to stay quiet and look the other way at someone who is planting Avoida Zara within our midst.

Maybe the Heter is based on the fact the not one of the Gedolei Yisroel decided to do as you see fit?

Never mind besmirching the name of one specific Gadol; who do you think you are, and why do you think you are smarter than all the other Gedolei Yisroel that don't seem to feel the need to do what you are doing?

Re: Re: The current state of COVID-19 in Israel
Good thing נחשון בן עמינדב and Pinchas didn't use that logic.

It seems you are missing the basics of chinuch for הכנעה to Gedolei Yisroel. It's not something that can be taught to you on a public forum. It takes Chinuch from a young age....

Good Luck!

Re: The Funny/strange/interesting/random Tweets Thread
16m in 1939 growing at the same rate as the rest of the world = 55m in 2020 using an annual growth ratio of ~1.6%, but if you apply the same growth ratio to the 10m who survived the Holocaust, you'd still have 35m in 2020.

Of the 'missing' 40m Jews, half are probably due to assimilation, not the holocaust.

It's also a very conservative number, the growth ratio is closer to 1.8% which would make it 50m 'missing' Jews.

I never understood why people say that the Jewish population is shrinking due to assimilation.

To say that there are more people unaware that they are Jewish is one thing...

But at the end of the day there are x amount of Jewish women who are having x amount of children whom are all Jewish whether their husband is Jewish or not....

Re: The Funny/strange/interesting/random Tweets Thread
And all the children of intermarried Jewish men are non Jews

But that's irrelevant - because the same amount of Jewish children are being born to that specific generation whether the Jewish women marry Jewish men or not.

Think of it for a minute....

Re: Czar Cuomo
You can apply that logic to question why the whole world considers slavery out of question. That was universally accepted, until it wasn't. Same for women working and then women voting.

The same Torah that defines marriage as between one man and one woman, gives man a right to sell himself to be looked after and provided for as a slave.
I think the Torah allows for marriage between one man and more than one woman.

בכירים במערכת הבריאות: השמיים יישארו סגורים עד אחרי פסח
מערכת JDN
י״א באדר תשפ״א 23.02.21


ישראלים שמחכים בקוצר רוח לפתיחת השמיים ייאלצו להמתין, לאחר שבכירים במשרד הבריאות הודיעו לשרים שהשמיים יישארו סגורים לפחות עד אחרי חג הפסח אל תמהרו לתכנן את הטיסה הבאה שלכם לחו"ל


גורמים במשרד הבריאות מצננים הערב (שלישי) את ההתלהבות, ומזהירים מעלייה בתחלואה כתוצאה מפתיחה מהירה ולא מבוקרת של המשק, אחרי השקת מתווה הדרכון הירוק, כחלק מהפתיחה ההדרגתית של ענפי המסחר השונים.

לפי הדיווח של קרן מרציאנו וירון אברהם בחדשות 12, החשש הוא בשל העלייה במקדם ההדבקה, שעומד כעת על 0.86. בינתיים, מקדם ההדבקה נותר מתחת ל-1, מה שאומר שהמגפה נמצאת במגמת התכווצות.

עם זאת, גורמים במערכת הבריאות מסבירים שהנתון הנוכחי הוא תוצאה של עלייה מתונה שהתרחשה בעשרת הימים האחרונים. המשמעות הפתיחה המתונה והמצומצמת של המשק הובילה לעלייה המדאיגה במקדם ההדבקה.

לטענת אותם גורמים, אם מגמת העלייה תימשך, לא יהיה מנוס מדחיית שלב ההקלות השלישי, הכולל בין היתר פתיחת בתי קפה, מסעדות קטנות וגני אירועים. בנוסף, הזהירו במערכת הבריאות מחזרה אחורה בתוכנית היציאה ומהטלת הגבלות נוספות על הציבור.

יתרה מזאת, ישראלים שמחכים בקוצר רוח לפתיחת השמיים ייאלצו להמתין, לאחר שבכירים במשרד הבריאות הודיעו לשרים שהשמיים יישארו סגורים לפחות עד אחרי חג הפסח.

Re: Israel And Ben Gurion COVID-19 Reopening Master Thread
One other development is that you can go in person to משרד האוכלוסין in Yersualayim (only)(Queen Shlomziyon St 1, Jerusalem, 9414601, Israel) and they will give you an ishur in person for entry of eligible individuals. Apparently the process is very quick, people are in and out in 20 minutes. From 8 to 10 you can come without appointment, after 10, by appointment only

Is this still relevant?

Is an appointment needed?

Does the Israeli first-degree relative have to go to the office or can I send someone else with the documents?

On another note: Would it help to resend my documents to the NYC consulate or would they just get aggravated and delay it more (Israeli style)?
It's already 8 days since I sent it in with no response...
