An Eventual Resolution ‘May The Likes Of You Increase Manifold In Israel’ (Bechoros 45b)

Mitzvah Shopping

He must be a very important person to get such an important mitzvah, I heard them say, as Mr. Loewenstein, the local assemblyman, stepped up to recite the Torah blessing before the reading of the Ten Commandments. And Mr. Kleppish was too embarrassed to tell his wife that he only got third galilah on Shabbat Rosh Chodesh Chanukah.

Unauthorized Repair

As Yisrael opened his garage on Friday morning, Eli was already waiting there. "I'm driving to Baltimore for Shabbos," Eli said, "but funny things have been happening with the car recently. Can you check the battery and brakes?"

Sheva Berachot After Shalosh Seudot

Question: Normally one may not eat or drink after Birchat Hamazon of Shalosh Seudot until after Havdalah. What is the halacha, however, if one schedules Sheva Berachot for a Shalosh Seudot meal? Should the groom and bride drink from the wine of Sheva Berachot or not?

The Great Escape

In June 1967, even skeptics and agnostics admitted that the people of Israel, who only days before were digging their own graves, were saved by nothing short of a miracle. Over the years, however, however, the miracle, so obvious when it occurred, became camouflaged in a shroud of strategic, military terms.

Daf Yomi

Beware Big Brother! ‘All The Defects Which Come About By Man…’ (Bechoros 35a-b)

Sarah’s Laughter

Question: Why did Sarah – one of our four righteous matriarchs – laugh when she heard the angel prophesy that she would give birth to a son? How could she have doubted God?

The Ball Over The Wall

Mr. Marx was relaxing in his garden Sunday afternoon, savoring the remaining days of sunshine. At least he was trying to relax. From over the wall of his garden came the steady thump, thump and shouting of the local teenage boys playing basketball in the neighbor's back yard.

Daf Yomi

Not Necessarily Good For The Goose, Gander Or Any Fowl ‘On The Festival, Plucking The Wool Is Permitted Because…’ (Bechoros 25a)

Resolving Halachic Dilemmas

Question: Who should resolve halachic dilemmas?

Jack Of All Trades, Master Of None (Bechorot 29 a)

There are no problems in life, only expenses. The compensation for performing a mitzvah is the opportunity to perform another mitzvah. These two truisms often conflict because, like most everything else in life, the performance of mitzvot often requires funding.

Forgotten Fill-Up

"We are pleased to announce we have been donated a car for communal use," read the sign in Kollel Mishpat. "Members of the Kollel can use the car g'mach, as available, in coordination with Dani."

Anim Z’mirot (Part II)

Tax Evasion And Tax Avoidance: Bechorot 34a; Berachot 35b; Sanhedrin 5a; Gittin 81a.

Donating Money For Aliyot

Question: Is it proper for a synagogue to establish a policy that no one is to donate money for receiving an aliyah to the Torah?

‘Forget About It!’

Yanky was going through difficult times. "My company merged over a year ago and I got laid off," he poured his heart out to Moish, a neighbor. "I've been trying everywhere to get a job, but nothing's available."

Kashering Meat

Strolling around an antique shop in Pennsylvania’s Dutch Country, I was reunited with many of the items that inhabited my mother’s kitchen. There was a scrubbing board and a metal oval-shaped tub with which one would scrub and wash clothes and a ringer through which one would dry them. I also saw a charred metal grate that reminded me of the one my mother used to kasher pieces of liver.
