    1. Title: Minhagim
      Author: ogorekb ,

      Regarding what you said about reevaluating mihagim as to their appropriateness in each generation; what comes to mind is קטניות and rice. Should that not be reevaluated?

    2. Title: Well done!
      Author: Pinchas Rosenthal ,

      It is refreshing to hear a Rabbi speaking AGAINST superstitutions, segulas and magical thinking - for a change!

      Chazak V'amatz!
