Any time I try looking flights on google I get "Oops, something went wrong." Any idea what it could be?

General Discussion / Re: All Halocha Shailos and teiffa Questions

Make sure the Rov heard of מתה מחמת מלאכה, that a שואל is not chayev... Either way אמר רבי יוחנן: לא חרבה ירושלים אלא... שהעמידו דיניהם על דין תורה, ולא עבדו [=עשו] לפנים משורת הדין (בבא מציעא ל ע"ב).
Doubt this is מחמת מלאכה. And  שהעמידו דיניהם על דין תורה does not mean that when 2 people have a question if one owes the other money they can't ask a rav.

?s=20

Is that kind of letter effective in FR?
Cant even see what the letter says or who it's from (filter). But I just love how leadership is always defined by the leader agreeing with your previously held opinion.

I get where that impression comes from, but are there any published poskim (any orthodox sector) that state this outright?

and why isnot relevant/binding?
IDK of sources, but it's not brought in SA except for ervah and the definition of tznius is a characteristic. (As opposed to Shabbos or Yibum which are not characteristics). Obviously my own understanding.

That doesn't address his point, though.

 I would venture to say, not basing this on anything I heard, but just what makes sense to me, that technically as far as tznius we do go like minhag hamakom, but we have another problem that if we dress like minhag hamakom, the clothing worn today is Megareh Yetzer Horah, and would be prohibited based on that.

Just my 2 (worthless?) cents. Any comments?
I believe there are 3 issues.
1. ervah for brachos etc.. this has clearly defined rules.
2. midah. this is very hard to have clearly defined rules what's mutar. certain things to assur are clearly defined.
3. lifnei iveir for men. similar to 2.

The only relevance minhag hamakom would have would be to assur s/t that would otherwise be muttar in 2 & 3 (or if it was only assur b/c of minhag hamakom originally then it can be matir). To be matir s/t that's clearly assur would not be helped by minhag hamakom.
The obvious question is what makes s/t minhag hamakom. But it would def. only be because of yidden.

Even important women wear sleeveless gowns and pants these days.
He was referencing
but he said it refers to the minhag hamakom of the jewish women not of the world.

I have heard the argument (not from Rabbanim) that based on Minhag hamakom, pants and not covering hair are the way women dress now so it's not a problem.
Not covering hair is deoiraisa. Kinda hard to argue that.
As a (chareidi) female, I am following.
I've never been able to find exact halachos of tznius
There is a reason for that. Except in regard to halachos of ervah (davening/brachos/learning) it's a midah (that doesn't mean you don't have to follow, just that it's not gonna be set rules).

How long for AA to close the loophole that effectively makes all award redeposits fee at any time?
They won't close it. Just one day there will be a new thread about dozens of AA shutdowns...
