Believe it or not, my Rov told me that when someone's wife is Niddah it's preferable next to an unrelated woman on a long-haul flight...
for all you Clevelanders out there I'm pretty sure rabbi c.gives the same guidance

::) What does one have to do with the other? If someone is falling you have an obligation to help no matter who it is...

I didn't say anyone was falling. But it just snowed the day before and there are piles of snow and some ice. Does one have to wait for the person to fall?

Is it also preferable to share a bedroom with an unrelated woman while ones wife is a niddah? This will ensure you don't accidentally bump into her like on a plane.

I'm just asking questions.

I flew one with a group of buchrim on LH, the flight also left 30 minutes late. They were very accommodating, switch around however needed, and they offered (gave) for the affected pax (not us...) a small chocolate or the like (don't remember exactly) and it didn't make the news, end of story.

You don't share a bedroom with your wife when she's Nidah? :o

Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

This is not going to become a thing on DDF, right? Please say yes.

I was not just "quoting my Rov". It was actually part of a long Shiur to my Kollel where he brought many sources that Negi'ah is more Chomur by Ishto Niddah than by a regular woman. This was years ago but I can try to look it up if I have a chance.

This is true, and is easily provable by the myriad restrictions that apply to ishto niddah but not to strangers.  Such as: passing things, sitting at a table without a heker, etc.

Did he also tell you that if your wife is a niddah and the sidewalk is icy that it's preferable not to hold her arm?


That is definitely the halacha.  If it is actually pikuach nefesh, I think that would be talui on the discussion brought in the shach regarding if you are a doctor and she is choleh sh'yesh bo sakana and nobody else is available to treat her.

But if it's pikuach nefesh, maybe you should just stay home.

Total idiots.
I just traveled 8 hrs in economy next to a woman and there were no issues.
It reminds me of what the Satmar Rav Z"L said about "litvish" dating "How many aveiros did they have to commit for this not to have an effect on them"

I can check back in tomorrow night. I am sure this nonsense will still be going on.
Why do these threads remind me of Groundhog Day?

Including your reaction to each of them?
