        Rabbi Yisrael Reisman spoke about this some time back.  He said
that it is a mitzva to accompany the sefer, or to greet it when it is
taken out, and he wondered why this is not done as much in our shuls as
it should be.  So he asked the Rov of the Sefaradi shul across the street
from his shul if he sees this also,  and he replied that in fact he has
to ask people to be more orderly when they all go up to greet or
accompany the sefer.  Interesting contrast.

"shli sheloch v'shelchoh sheli - Am Ho'oretz'


Pirkei Avos (5:13): 'Ho'oymer shli sheloch
v'shelchoh sheli - Am Ho'oretz'

The question is obvious: Why call him an 'Am Ho'oretz'? Wouldn't 'shoteh'
be a better description of such a person?

Rav Yosef Zvi Dushinsky zt'l (in Toras Maharitz) explains that the
Mishnah refers to a person who makes a 'Yissoschor-Zevulun' deal with
a Talmid Chochom, and he says to him: "sheli sheloch" - my money will
go towards your financial support, "v'shelchoh-sheli" - and for that -
I will share the s'char of your Limud Hatorah.

And whilst it is without doubt that such a person will be greatly
rewarded for supporting limmud hatorah, however if he relies only on
the Torah learning of his 'partner' and doesn't do any actual learning
himself - he will remain an Am-Ho'oretz...

Hagbeh - MM's


Further to my earlier post and the responses thereto (plus to those who
sent private emails), I have looked up the Mishnah Berurah and it is
without any sofek that according to him Hagbeh should be done going all
the way round - by turning to your right and continuing to do so until
you have made the complete circle.

The Mareh Mekomos are SA (137:2) and MB sk 9
and Hilchos Nesias Kapayim 128:17 and the MB sk9.

I suppose the sensible thing to do would be

correction of the baal kriah


I was looking through the new Emes LeYaakov on Shulchan Aruch, which
are the comments of Rav Yaakov Kaminetsky, and found what Rav Yaakov
had told my father years ago: that one should not correct a baal kriah
who makes a mistake in mil'el/mil'ra, even though the meaning changes.
The reason is that the posuk stands on its own and is not subject to
the interpretation of the koreh based upon his pronunciation.

I recall the Rav saying that his grandfather Rav Chaim was the opposite:
he corrected everything because of a lack of "kenisinasa". Does anyone
know if the Rav practiced this lema'aseh?

According to R' SZ Auerbach (Halichosh Shlomo p. 153), if there are people
on all sides of the bimah, then the magbiah should turn right and make a
360.  However, if there are only people to the right and the left of the
bimah, then it is sufficient to turn right (so the people on the left of the
bimah can see) and then turn left (so the people on the left of the bimah
can see).

One other detail about hagbah: it is a hidur for the magbiah to open up more
than three columns (if he is able to without risk of dropping it, of
course).  I don't think this is well known, as whenever I see a magbiah do
this, I usually hear some grumbling about how the guy is showing off or
making a mockery of hagbah.

Dear Steven,
  There will be a sefer coming out soon called Igros Hagrid which
was worked upon by Rav Dr. Chaim Soloveichik, Rav Y lichenstein and Rav
Ilson on letters between Rav Moshe and Rav RYBS and I am sure sure it
will be excellent and on a high level. When I bought Harrei Kedem the

"Shaarei Tshuvah" 4


    The fourth instance in which we're likely to be moved to tshuvah:
    When delving into Torah.
    Rabbeinu Yonah isn't addressing halacha or hashkafa here, though, but 
rather mussar. His point is that we're most likely to be moved to tshuvah 
when we find ourselves "understand(ing) how agreeable tochacha is". That's to 
say, when it occurs to us how important bettering ourselves is, and how 
important (sensitive and altruistic) criticism is toward that end. And when 
we "see the warnings" as well as "the consequences to be suffered". Which is 
to say, when we see the consequences suffered by those in Tanach and Gemorrah 
who'd been warned and nonetheless didn't change, and suffered as a 
consequence. His advice for us then is to determine to improve ourselves by 
taking that all to heart.
    Rabbeinu Yonah's final point, though, is most daunting. He warns us that 
if we study those sections of Tanach and Gemorrah, and are nonetheless *not* 
affected by all that, that we'd be guiltier yet-- assumedly because we'd have 
read the warnings, seen the consequences, and yet haughtily denied our own 
failings (13).

RE: Besuros Tovos


In IM OC 4:67, R' Moshe provides his own nusach for the misheberach for a
baby girl, which combines the request for a refuah shelaima for the mother
and a mazel tov and krias shem for the baby.  (He notes that the popular
nusach for krias shem doesn't make much sense.  Ayin sham.

In his nusach, R' Moshe omits "l'torah" but he says that one may add the
words "l'torah ul'ben torah."

I remember seeing from R' SZ Auerbach (but I couldn't find it last night
when I looked for it) that one should include the word "l'torah."

Is there a source re: R. Y Caro's intention of making this a unifed codex?

I am aware that RYK wanted a limud of halacha psuka that could be
chazerred periodically. By the time the mappo and otehr nos'ei keilim
came out, it was afaik abandoned.

And afaik the Levush though he would supplant the SA/Mappo combination
and it took off for a generation or two and fizzled.

BTW the ONLY unified code afaik taht encompasses both ashkenaz and sefard
is the Tur who had the rare privilege of living in both societies.

And the point of the Dor Revi'i is that this must be done by a Beit Din that
is specifically intercalating a particular year, because it is weighing all the
relevant considerations appropriate to deciding whether that specific year
should be intercalated, not by an automatic process initiated x hundreds of
years before hand.

It is not a shemitah year because the prerequisites for shemitah are not
satisfied.  There was no beit din that weighed all the factors that need to
be considered in deciding whether the year would be intercalated.  If
intercalation occurs via automatic pilot, the conditions for the rabbinic 
obligation to observe shemitah have not been satisfied.  Even if the p'sak 
of the Rambam were relevant to the DR's point (which I question), it 
would not be a proof against him, because presumably the Rambam's 
p'sak relates to a situation in which there is a d'oraita obligation to observe 
shemitah, not to one in which the obligation is only rabbinic as we are
assuming.

I had the zchus to leyin for the Rav a few times (I didn't live in the 
immediate vicinity of Maimonides, but for a while when I was in 
high school we davened there on Sunday and Legal Holiday 
mornings, and I got to leyin a few times). He most definitely did 
correct everything. Also, when he got an aliya, he would leyin along 
with you in a normal voice (not in an undertone like most people 
do), so if you weren't sure of yourself, you were a goner....

First, note the change to the thread name [and venue -mi].

See Eiruvin 19a.  R. Hershel Schachter in his Eretz HaTzvi deduces from this

The relevant sources are brought down in Tur and Shulchan Aruch Even
Haezer siman # 16. The Rambam holds it is dioraisa and you get malkos
and so writes the Mechaber. He also ads that Midivray Kabala it is
Kares. The Rama adds that Yesh Cholkin and say no Malkos. But the Rama
does add that it is Yaharog Veal Yaavor and Kanoim pogin bo, and is a
very severe issur. See all the Achronim brought down.

Thinking over my position on Leiberman, I realize that he really shouldn't
be blamed that much. I actually am starting to feel bad for him. He put
himself in a Nisayon that it is virtually impossible to overcome

The Cheshbon took in consideration the "Tkufoh and Oviv" which the Rambam

I am sorry for being so thick, I will try to be clearer :-)

AIUI the D"R was proving that since we have a Shmita in a Shana Muberes, 
something which is against the prohibition in Sanhedrin 12b, we must conclude 
that it is not a true Shmita, the question against this position from the 
Rambam is that since the basis of our calender is based on a Cheshbon of 
taking in consideration Tkufah and Oviv hence there can be a true Shmita and 
be a Shana Muberes.

Har Sinai and Arvos Moav


The Ramban on Devarim 29:11 comments that the b'ris mentioned here
is a new one made in Arvos Mo'av, in addition to the one made at Har
Sinai. (RYBS has a shtikl Torah on this as well.)

In his d'var Torah email of a few weeks back, R' Binyamin Hecht of Nishma
contrasted two definitions of Jewish identity. I'd like to apply the
idea I picked up there to contrast the two brisim.

At Har Sinai, we were "k'ish echad bileiv echad". We were unified because
we *chose* to follow a common objective. Man joins the community --
the connection is made outward from the individual.

Rashi on "vehaniglos lanu ulvaneinu la'asos es kol divrei haTorah hazos"
(29:28) quotes the opinion of R' Nechemiah that with these words we
accepted areivus zeh lazeh. That lanu, bilashon rabbim, falls the
responsibility for the chata'im geluyim of indiviuals. The community
is responsible for its members, even those who choose not to follow
its goals. "Atem nitzavim hayom kulchem." The connection is made from
the community in toward the member -- and so the member gets no say on
the subject.

It is something like RYBS's chakirah between the am, the community of
destiny; and the eidah, that of fate. Man chooses to follow his destiny,
fate is imposed upon him. Note the purpose of this second b'ris: lima'an
hakim osecha hayom Lo *li'am*, viHu yihye licha lEi-lokim (29:12).

I also saw the MB and Mogen Avrohom on this - but it
seems unclear if they are saying a MINIMUM of 3 columns
or MAXIMUM for someone with the strength to do so.

Do you have a source for saying that more - is a hiddur?

girsa in the Rambam [found at the Cambridge Libray cat. # 62, a
Yemmenite ms. and a ms. in the British Museum # 486-87] that shows
that the rambam wrote: "v'noheget sheviit ba'aretz M'DIVREIHEM v'chen
hashmatat kesafim b'chol makom m'divreihem".

Thus, the Rambam does hold that shmita bizman hazeh is d'rabbanan and
not d'oraita.

I remember seeing it recently...I thought I had seen it in Halichos Shlomo,
but I couldn't find it now when I checked.  I'll keep looking...
