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 donít believe in the zionist state. He was saying how itís 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 Iím 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....
