Hebrewbooks.org has a book with that title by R Shlomo Zalman Mirkash containing the ruling you reference about women and counting the Omer (available here).

I believe Rav Nachum Rabinovitch, shlit"a, is meikil. (I believe Rav Yoshe Ber Soloveichik,z"l, was meikil regarding listening to music in general during sefira.) Similarly, Rav Belsky is lenient with regard to continuing music lessons during sefira: Refer to opinions of Harav Elyashiv Shlita and Harav Korelitz Shlita quoted in Piskei Shmuos page 53, see ...

See this article . My inference from this is that considering that there was a debate regarding shaving in general, plus even for those opinions that prohibit shaving, there's a debate if that means only the beard, there are leniencies to rely upon regarding shaving your neck. As there is no consensus, from what I can tell, CYLOR. If you DO shave your ...

The Chok Yakov ( O. Ch.489) writes not to say the kabalistic tefilos after counting the Omer.

I assume that you are referring to the paragraph that appears in most siddurim following the actual counting. This is an additional / optional paragraph that is not part of the essential mitzvah of counting. Additionally, part of the paragraph references one of the Kabbalistic "sefirah" terms related to that day. The point is, that each day, there is a ...

The allowance you reffer to is mentioned as a hetter concerning the acceptance not to sing as a zecher lichurban. Ever. There are specific instances where it applies and where it does not. See Shulchan Aruch o'ch 560 siff 3 and mishna berurah 13. Seemingly working in an office would be more comparable to a sheppard singing, or a woman doing her housework, ...

It is an odd assumption that we would be celebrating a failed revolution of Lag Baomer. Another point. There is actually no need for the Talmud Bavli to hide anything negative said of the Romans. Their Parthian hosts would be more than happy to hear such stuff. And in fact they didn't hide negative statements about Romans.

the fact that the sources say he had 24000 students leads me to speculate that this number was known because of a count taken as they enrolled as part of bar kochba army- there a count would be taken-otherwise at that time there were no needs or practice of counting students---second rabbi chaim kolitz in his book rabbi akiva-says the wording pairs of pupils ...

chacham ben tzion aba shaul in chelek alef-36 and chelek 3-16-5 understand the behag differently. he says even the behag agrees that its 49 seperate mitzvot . just that if you miss a day, youre lacking the continuous flow and therefore youre out. rav soloveichik is quoted also as understanding such. acc. to this , one can begin even if they know they will ...

The verses regarding the mitzvah of counting read: Leviticus 23:15-16: וּסְפַרְתֶּ֤ם לָכֶם֙ מִמָּחֳרַ֣ת הַשַּׁבָּ֔ת מִיּוֹם֙ הֲבִ֣יאֲכֶ֔ם אֶת־עֹ֖מֶר הַתְּנוּפָ֑ה שֶׁ֥בַע שַׁבָּת֖וֹת תְּמִימֹ֥ת תִּהְיֶֽינָה׃ עַ֣ד מִֽמָּחֳרַ֤ת הַשַּׁבָּת֙ הַשְּׁבִיעִ֔ת תִּסְפְּר֖וּ חֲמִשִּׁ֣ים י֑וֹם וְהִקְרַבְתֶּ֛ם מִנְחָ֥ה חֲדָשָׁ֖ה לַיהוָֽה׃ And ye shall ...

Chanuka is inherently connected to Sukkot where the Musaf offering includes a "countdown" of bulls. Sefirat HaOmer, on the other hand, is a biblical command to count 50 days from the offering of the Korban Omer which only makes sense incrementally since the actual date of the latter korban of the shtei halechem is dependent on that of the former of the omer. ...

R' C Cohen writes in Dose of Halacha .. There is another machlokes as to whether women are obligated at all. Ramban (Kiddushin 34a) holds that women are obligated, while Rambam (Temidin Umusafin 7:24; Sefer Hamitzvot 161) and the Magen Avraham (OC 489:1) hold that as it is a time-bound mitzva, women are exempt. The Mishna Berura (489:3) quotes the ...
