Description

TheTorahApp. Why the issue of mechitzah was more dominant decades ago than other violations of Halachah. Reasons for honoring one's in-laws (Yoreh Deah 240:24): 1) They're older. 2) Husband & wife are בשר אחד. Mishneh Halachot 7:155: Mother-in-law, a widow, living with daughter & son-in-law insists on washing dishes, making beds, & food shopping. Is this allowed? R' Tarfon's mother walked on his hands. R' Yishmael's mother washed his feet. Concept of שיריים: An explanation & a source in Yerushalmi. R' Menashe Klein: The husband & wife have separate but supportive roles & above all Torah study must dominate. Meaning of עבודת פרך in Egypt: 1) Unlimited work 2) Even worse, פרך means male slaves did women's work & vice versa. The ghetto. Torah adapts to all civilizations. R' Moshe Deutsch. דרושי וחידושי הרמבא"ד pg. 22b: Wives start fights with their husbands and blame them for everything bad that happens, just like Amalek did. 3 ways wives make husbands' lives bitter. Presidents of shuls joke. Wives of great rabbis were wonderful. Teachers are our future. Uri Zohar. Mishneh Halachot 10:224: Parents insist daughter who teaches Torah excellently resign & join family business.
