Zoo Torah – Response Back Up

‍‍י״ב אדר ב' תשס״ה - Wednesday, March 23rd, 2005

It's worth noting that R' Nosson Slifkin has put his responses back up at Zoo Torah - The Book Controversy. Last month, in a noble attempt to bring closure to this issue, R' Slifkin took down his responses, lest anyone mis-interpert them. However, after about a month with no evident effort by his accusers (there are my words, not his), he has restored the site. Personally, I'd like to see this concluded, and not just hushed up or swept away, even if he were to win. I think the issues here are too important to have an "out of court" settlement, but I could understand his reasoning last month. Nevertheless, I'm glad to see that he is continuing to fight for what is right. His comments on his reasons are also available.

(Not-baby) Anu Ratzim, V'Hem Ratzim

‍‍ל׳ אדר א' תשס״ה - Friday, March 11th, 2005

Anu Ratzim, V'Hem Ratzim. I wonder, assuming Israelis believed in traffic signs, would the supreme court here would allow this?

Quality captions

‍‍כ״א אדר א' תשס״ה - Wednesday, March 2nd, 2005

I saw an interesting article in the Jerusalem Post about women and daf yomi. My only major gripe was the caption they put on the picture in the article. Does the person on the right really look like she's doing what the caption claims she is? Or, ironically, is she immortalized in photography engaged in a more traditionally feminine task... knitting? See for yourself.

NYTimes on a new Kosher law in NY

‍‍י״ח אדר א' תשס״ה - Sunday, February 27th, 2005

I just saw an interesting article on the New York Times: State Offers Details Online to Help Determine if Food Is Truly Kosher. Based on the description in the article, this makes the new Kosher law sound somewhat similar to New Jersey's laws, where the state basically asks companies why they consider it kosher, and the enforcement is to verify whether or not the company sticks to these guidelines. In New York's law, there is a registration database that allows one to easily determine whose supervision is on a given product, while allowing agencies to define their own standards without government input. Sounds good to me.

Interesting post from R' Carmy on the Rav & Christianity

‍‍י״ח אדר א' תשס״ה - Saturday, February 26th, 2005

Although I can't say I'm in full agreement with R' Carmy on many issues, he has some interesting points on the Rav and Christianity here.
