The website jewish pathways seems to discuss this very issue and concludes based on the Mishna Berurah and the Schulhan Aruch that that ikkar v'taffel is handled differently with mezonot food: Rule #1 – A mezonot food receives its own bracha even when it is the tafel. [MB 208:23] Rule #2 – When mixed with other ingredients and made into one food, a ...

It is a good question and in fact it is answered only by reading between the lines. The Halachic terms are Ikkar ("main component" in the question) and Taffel (a lesser component). From the Shulchan Aruch (Siman 212), the Achronim have concluded that the Taffel actually does require a Beracha but that it is included in the Beracha of the Ikkar. The ...

The Shulchan Aruch doesn't seem to mention it, but the באר היטב in 'סעיף ח of סימן שטז - צידה האסורה ומתרת בשבת mentions the Rambam: פטור. דהוי מלאכה שא''צ לגופה. העלה דג מן הספל של מים והניחו עד שיבש כסלע בין סנפיריו חייב משום נטילת נשמה דשוב אינו יכול לחיות רמב''ם גמ'. וא''כ צריך לזהר שלא יצוה לעכו''ם ליטול דג מן החבית של מים אע''פ שירא שימות. מ''א: ...

Rabbi J. David Bleich addresses it in "The Case of the Poisoned Sandwich", Tradition 41:3. There are one or two Israeli poskim who are gung-ho about taking the law into your own hands, but practically I advise against it in the strongest of terms. The Vilna Gaon's reading of the Yerushalmi, Dmai 3:5 is that you make take no action that will cause harm to ...

The Vilna Gaon writes that the definition of oneg shabbos is the enjoyment of things on shabbos itself, in contrast to kavod shabbos which is the all the preparation one does before shabbos. Rav Ovadia Yosef in Kitzur Shulchan Aruch (רמב) says this explicitly as well: הכל איש מישראל מחוייב בכבוד ועונג שבת. וכבוד שבת הוא מהדברים הנעשים קודם השבת, ...

See this article. I'm assuming that you mean fresh (raw, unfrozen) strawberries. If one wants to eat the strawberries whole: Peel off the entire outer layer of the berry (including deep cracks and the place where the leaf is attached). Rinse well after peeling From the phrasing as well as the illustration, it seems that this needs to be done ...

It says (in the name if the arizal I think) that one who does not eat chametz on Pesach will be protected from sinning the whole year. (That a person will be protected from shogeg you can still sin if you choose to.) So if one only eats food that he saw from start to finish the chances of eating chometz is greatly reduced. And since chometz is an issur ...

The Kesef Mishna (Shechita 1:3) writes: וא"ת סוף סוף נימא דבעו אסיפה בעודם חיים. וי"ל שאילו היה אפשר לומר כן אה"נ אבל כיון דא"א לאכלם בלא אסיפה שאפילו קלטן בפיו ולא אספם בידו מ"מ בעת שהם בפיו נאספים הם אם כן אינו דבר מיוחד דמזהר עליה קרא And if you want to say that in the end of the day we should say that it requires gathering while it is alive, one ...

I wrote to Dr. Ari Greenspan and R' Dr. Ari Zivotofky, who have hosted "Mesora Dinners," serving foods with interesting Halachic statuses, in various places. As far as they know, there are no kosher restaurants that include locusts on their menus. When they held the Mesora Dinners in the United States, the menu did not include actual locusts; they just got ...
