Marvelous Middos Machine is indeed a wonderful classic for all ages.

However, I just noticed that the aforementioned letter from the Beis Din of Crown Heights was issued a very short while before Hey Teves 5747, its impact might have been drowned in the Mashke.

Can we stay on topic??????? whats the latest? is wolff responding to VRL? who is his to'ein?!

Bigger problem
A bigger problem (only because it isnít as known) is Keter size 20 tzitzis. While most people assume they are 100% kosher but they are not (according to the alter rebbeh) because they are not 1 amoh from the bottom of the neckline


Shaygetz all of you!! go burn your keter tzitis

Reminds me of how off topic they get in the gemara.

Where is Rav Heller on this?

I know my brother is very close to Machom Stam and they advertise in his publications. I think the live mezuzah walkthrough is my brother though it's my cousin in the video lol

Basically, when it comes to stam I let my brother / father do what they want, I just hand over my tefillen and mezuzos when they want to check and my father is always on my case about replacing retzuos and the kesher and ugh..

I am curious if they should invent weatherproof mezuzah cases?

Some are, but it's not 100%. Heat, cold, and direct sunlight will affect the Mezuzah.

I have had it damaged by rain. I mean if you invest $150+  on a good mezuza, cases should be westberproof and even theft proof

Was your klaf wrapped in wax paper? Did you specify to the seller that this mezuzah is to be placed outdoors and you want a waterproof case?

Keter is an issue for everyone.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I see a new scandal video coming out on this one. I've got my PC ready!

Direct sunlight burned my mezuza a few years ago. In a water proof case

It was a metal case.. was really bad - the plastic wrapping melted into the klaf and half the mezuza was browned and a solid hard mass.
Pretty disturbing...

Plastic wrapping? They didn't use wax paper, or parchment paper? In any event, it is always recommended to tell the sofer (or merchant, if they're knowledgeable and experienced) where the Mezuzah will be placed, so that it's wrapped and placed in the most optimal way for the setting.
