Unfortunately don't have a copy but definitely the first thing I'm doing once we sort this out
Do you have an employer that photocopied your passport when you started working for them? You can ask them for that copy.

I buy this brand and they are great
Have to disagree. Not a fan of the taste or packaging.

I have this in my amazon cart and im confused, on the one hand the preview has kosher sources but he's written some strange stuff too

http://www.amazon.com/Stabilization-Rabbinic-Culture-C-E-350/dp/0195387740?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_1&smid=A2PTFCA406K9UV
I am sorry I know nothing about him, or most academic sources. However, just because something quotes "kosher" sources means nothing. Academics misunderstand them all the time and even if they understand them correctly they draw false conclusions from them based on their biases. Also, just taking a quick look at the book he has a "haskama" from someone who has written kaferia.

Again, you should not be reading this stuff. If you don't know Hebrew there is so much available now in English from sources that are not dangerous. Start with artscroll you already can spend a life time going through shaas bavli and yarushalmi and medrash translations.

Anyway, good night. Popcorn thread is getting too excited...

Wow  did you open this thread to show how much you've already read?  ::)      jk vry impressive  8)

Do you hav an opinion on Marc B Shapiro?   changing the immutable sounds interesting
I like the fact that he brings my attention to a lot of sources, but someone who has no idea how to learn should not take his word what the sources actually say as he sometimes misreads them, and also draws wrong conclusions. See this book review for many examples.
https://www.ou.org/jewish_action/06/2007/the_thirteen_principles_of_rambam/

IE if you don't have a strong learning background better not to read.
