    The Tumah of Utensils

    How are slingshots like Tefillin? What is the difference between a sack and a sock? How is an earthenware oven different from other earthenware utensils?

    Parashat Hashavua

    Holy Talk is Not Cheap

    why did Moshe not merit to enter Eretz Yisrael? Considering that the Torah says the reason is Moshe’s misstep by hitting the rock to have its waters flow, another way to present the question is: what was so bad about hitting the rock?

    The Chief Rabbinate Is 100. Has It Fulfilled Its Goals?

    To mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Chief Rabbinate of Israel, let us return to the original intentions of its founder, Rav Kook – who knew that bridging the gaps between the vision and its implementation would not be easy.

    Rosh Chodesh

    7. The Custom for Women to Refrain from Working on Rosh Hodesh

    One may work on Rosh Ĥodesh. Ideally, though, one should not do so, as is the law on Ĥol Ha-mo’ed. The rule is that the holier the day, the more it is designated for holy endeavors, and the more one should limit his involvement in work.

    The Melachot

    Can there be Smoke Without a Fire?

    May I place cold frankfurters on top of a hot pot to warm them on Shabbos? May one derive benefit from a cheese dog, which is a grilled hot dog with added cheese and chili sauce? I will be traveling overseas for Yom Tov and Shabbos, and it will be difficult for me to have cooked food ready for an eruv tavshillin. May I use lox as my eruv tavshillin?

    Korach

    Preserving the Old, Inspiring the New

    Why did Moshe respond so differently with Korah and his gang than with Eldad and Medad? Regarding the latter, he prayed that everyone should be a prophet - yet with Korah, he was greatly angered at the claim that "everyone is equally holy." Why?

    When the Bobover Found the Torn Page from Sanhedrin

    the story of the time during World War 2 when the Bobover Rebbe found himself in the office of a General, he miraculously saw a torn page from Massechta Sanhedrin and as he held it close to him he felt like he had all the riches in the world. Today, one of the most beautiful parts of a Jewish home is the walls lined with Sefarim, the question we have to ask ourselves is 'how much simcha does it give us?'

    Winners & Choosers

    In Parshat Shlach, the majority of the greatest spiritual leaders in the nation conclude that the time was not yet right to enter Eretz Yisrael. In Korach also goes against the Establishment. So how do we decide when to go against the grain, & when to respect the existing status quo?

    Ein Aya

    Forego Humility to Let Our Children Know About Our Good Actions

    Ein Aya Shabbat 2, 281

    Parents, educators and rabbis often grapple with the question: "I don't want to sound like I'm bragging, but if I don't tell my children/students about my volunteering, learning, tzedaka and the good deeds that I do, how can I educate them of their importance?!" It's not enough to speak theoretically about ideals, but the best is to show by personal example, and my kids aren't always around to see! Similarly, certain topics are uncomfortable to speak about, but if we shy away from them, our children won't learn of their importance.

    No News

    news is really not news, but it is a great deal of opinion, bias, and bitterness that brings divisiveness amongst the listeners whom it is meant to serve.

    The Logic Behind Marit Ayin

    I don’t see consistency in how marit ayin is applied. There are cases that are forbidden where the likelihood of mistake seems remote, while cases I view as more problematic are permitted. Can you explain why that is?
