  1. Title: Baking Matzoh in Erev Pesach
    Author: Milton Spinner ,

    Rabbi H. Schacter,

    I can't locate the Rashi in Pesachim 120b requiring the baking of matzoh in erev pesach. However, you are most likely referring to R. Shimshon M'shantz (Rash) which the Mordechai brings down at the end of the first perek in Pesachim.

    Thanks for a great and thorough presentation.

    However, I like to point out that baking the matzhos erev pesach as a minhag is generally accepted by all, including the Tur, Beis Yosef, Moken-Avrohom, Taz, and HaGro.

    Thanks,

    Meyer

     

     

     

     

  2. Title: Potatoes/Corn
    Author: Milton Spinner ,

    Rabbi Schacter,

    How come potatoes were accepted and are excluded from Kitnius whereas corn is included in Kitnius.  Both items came from the newley discovered Americas.

    Unless Corn appeared on the European scene earlier.

    Thanks!

    Meyer
