8 Elul 5764 – August 25, 2004
Two events that seemed to fit the days before Tisha B'Av happened recently.

Q & A: Bal Tash’chit During The Nine Days (Conclusion)

1 Elul 5764 – August 18, 2004
QUESTION: May leftover meat from the Sabbath during the Nine Days be used during the week so as not to violate "bal tash'chit" - the prohibition against wastefulness?Rabbi Yaakov Spivak, Rosh KollelKollel Ayshel AvrahamMonsey, NY

Q & A: Effort And Diligence In Torah Study (Conclusion)

22 Av 5763 – August 20, 2003
QUESTION: I recently read your Daf Yomi column (JP, June 13, 2003), where you cited the Chikrei Lev's comments regarding the standard of 'Sinai' in Torah study, that is, having extensive knowledge of the Torah. He stated that this is not as important today because the Mishna has been recorded.My question is: Was the Mishna not recorded in Rashi's time? Commenting on the first verse in Parashat Bechukotai, Rashi notes (based on Sifra) that "Im bechukotai tele'chu" means "shetih'yu amelim baTorah." In yeshiva I was taught that this means that one must toil with much effort to learn and understand Torah. If so, how can one not be expected to have an extensive knowledge and yet be amel baTorah?Zvi Kirschner(Via E-Mail)

Q & A: Pesach Sheni

13 Sivan 5763 – June 13, 2003
QUESTION: What is the significance of Pesach Sheni, which seems to be just another notation on the calendar?Shlomo FeivelsonCoconut Creek, FL

Q & A: Al Achilat Matza (Part I)

30 Nisan 5763 – May 2, 2003
QUESTION: I have noticed that when we eat the matza at the seder on Passover, we recite the blessing of Hamotzi lechem min ha'aretz, followed by Al achilat matza. Why don't we say Al achilat matza when we eat matza during the remainder of Passover?Moshe JakobowitzBrooklyn, NY
