Ninja Beis Din?
Klein’s father-in-law, Brian Hirshman, 52, was charged with robbery and assault.
Rav Zev Leff’s Daas Torah – Issues of Jewish Identity blog pretty much copies and pastes the same item from the Post, and leaves it there for his trusted readers to comment on. And they do, and quite well.
Chaim Manis says the get recipient would be committing adultery if she remarries, and her children from another husband would be mamzeirim. He also wishes her husband will “never giver her a Get now, and she’ll grow old and lonely as a lesson for her actions.”
Rabbi Michael Tzadok says the mamzerim comment “is fairly harsh considering that surprisingly little is known about the entire case. He lists the variables of the case which the Post, not surprisingly, does not provide:
Was there a Beis Din ordered Get? Was there a valid case of domestic abuse? Which spouse initiated breaking up the marriage?
He notes that if her father and his buddies acted on their own initiative, then the entire affair and its outcome) (i.e. they aren’t her actions).
So a guy nicknamed Emes Le Yaacov really goes old testament on Rabbi Tzadok:
“ORA (Organization for the Resolution of Agunot) propagandist Tzadok is once again obfuscating and confusing the frum olam with irrelevant questions.
“In the very unlikely event a kosher Beis Din ordered a forced Get, using masked witnesses will disqualify even a forced Get. Using masked thugs in ski masks has nothing to do with Judaism, its just NY street gangsterism.
“When will Tzadok stop trying to sell us feminist gangsterism as Judaism?”
Is that cool or what? I can just imagine those two inside a small beis medrash, hopefully without sharp objects handy. Go, join the mayhem, it’s just starting. And, of course, say hi from Tibbi.
|WHY DO WE EAT DAIRY ON SHAVUOT – II|
Today we visit the home of Ask Moses, which promises heavenly answers to human questions. So, why does Moses think we eat dairy on the day he came down the mountain with the tablets?
Rabbi Baruch E. Erdstein and Nechama Dina Kumer say it’s the love.
“On Shavuot we celebrate the giving of the Torah. This gift was one of complete compassion and loving-kindness, for with the Torah we were given the tools (i.e. knowledge, commandments) to connect with the infinite and otherwise unknowable Creator.
“Dairy foods are associated with the loving, nurturing generosity exemplified by a mother nursing her baby. It is this supreme love that we connect to on the anniversary of the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai. New beginnings and connecting to the Source is what Shavuot is all about.”
OK, first, what does that say to the huge portion of the human race who are lactose intolerant? I’m not being PC here, I’m just wondering.
Second, mother’s milk is decidedly not dairy. There may be a problem if a grown person consumes it, but it’s not because it’s dairy.
Otherwise, sure, milk is fun, if it doesn’t keep you up all night with the runs…
|PRAYING FOR OTHERS, WHAT A CONCEPT|
The Rebbetzin’s Husband wonders when he should take a person off his Tehilim list, which is a similar dilemma:
“I began saying two paragraphs of Tehillim each morning before Shacharis some time back, and the practice has grown on me. Aside from the contribution I believe I am making to people’s health, I find it helps me get ready for my own davening, as well as feel good for the day.
“But I have the question myself: When do you take someone off the list?
“I am not talking about halting Tehillim [Psalms] because a situation is hopeless; rather, I’m talking about halting Tehillim because it seems that a person has recovered, or, at least, seems to be out of danger.”
