According to the GaRNa"T at the beginning of Maseches Kesubos, there is a school of Rishonim which holds that Nisuin is not a "transaction" (קנין) but is rather the initiation of their living together as husband and wife (תחילת הנהגת אישות). According to this school of thought, at least, one would not be able to send a shaliach, as Nisuin is not an "act of ...

First of all, as Double AA commented, לפניו is not exclusively male. In Hebrew, when referring to a group of males and females, the male form is used. That also applies when the reader is of unknown gender. The Chida (author of Birkei Yosef) wrote this several hundred years ago. In that time, it was not common for women or girls to come to shul at all. ...

The של׳ה found in שער האותיות ק׳ קדושה אות כ׳ח says מפני שפגם הלבנה גרמה האשה הראשונה דהיינו חטא חוה. This is different than the מגן אברהם's wording מפני שהם גרמו פגם הלבנה. The של׳ה can be understood as saying the exact opposite, that the מיעוט הלבנה is connected to causing the original sin. I don't have an out right proof but if you read the section in the ...

רמב"ם הלכות גירושין פרק יא הלכה יד ובכלל לאו זה שכל אשה שזינת תחת בעלה נאסרה על בעלה ולוקה עליה שנאמר אחרי אשר הוטמאה והרי נטמאה, אלא אם כן היתה אשת ישראל שנאנסה, לפיכך כל אשה שנאסרה על בעלה על ידי קינוי וסתירה אם בעל אותה מכין אותו מכת מרדות, ואם עבר והחזירה אחר שגירשה יוציא בגט. ‏ Mishneh Torah » Sefer Nashim - Gerushin - Chapter Eleven - Halacha ...

What an important and difficult topic! First Look at Kiddushin 70a-b and the commentators about the prohibition of inquiring about a woman's situation (sh'eilat shalom--a topic which includes speaking to them), particularly the language of Meiri and an important Ben Yehoyada; and see Bava Metzia 87a in the middle of the page. See Shulchan Aruch 21:6 and ...

The grandson of Aryeh Levine, reports how he witnessed Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach zt'l would go to the women's section during simchas to wish them a mazel tov. He says Judaism used to be alot more normal back then. could be today people have a harder time talking to women without thinking sexual thoughts

Here is some info. You weren't clear if the issue you are concerned with is seeing them or hearing them so here are some random sources. Reb Moshe in Igros Moshe Orach Chaim ch. 1 siman 40 writes in a tshuva to be careful not to look at a woman's face even when talking to give her a halachic ruling. There is a long eizer mikudash (the butchatcher rav, ...

R' Avraham Yosef (son of the late R' Ovadia Yosef) was asked this question. He replied that there's no difference, and that the Ezras Nashim counts as the Shul and thus forbidden. ?האם מותר לתת נשיקה לחברה בבית הכנסת בעזרת נשים, כשאין ספר תורה בחוץ בביהכ''נ לא מנשקים כדי להראות שאין חיבה כחיבת הקב''ה

The Mishna in Niddah 8:3 records a case of a woman coming to ask Rebbi Akiva a niddah shailah. מעשה באשה אחת שבאת לפני רבי עקיבא, אמרה לו, ראיתי כתם. אמר לה, שמא מכה היתה ביך. אמרה לו, הן, וחיתה. אמר לה, שמא יכולה להגלע ולהוציא דם. אמרה לו, הן. וטהרה רבי עקיבא. This implies that the woman can go, although it's always possible that she wasn't ...

Without getting overly involved in a discussion of interpreting aggadeta and esoteric literature (particularly those that might relate to sod bereishis) I would lay down a few points that are potentially relevant to answering your question. Firstly, Medrash was not written to be taken too literally (see, e.g., the Rambam in his hakdama to the Pirush ...

Her name was אמתלאי בת עורבתי. ואמר רב חנן בר רבא אמר רב אמיה דאברהם אמתלאי בת כרנבו אמיה דהמן אמתלאי בת עורבתי וסימניך טמא טמא טהור טהור Bava Basra 91a See also my answer to What was Avraham Avinu's mother's name?

Let me introduce myself enough to say that I am an ultra-orthodox (or preferably hareidi) rabbi, a mesader gittin, shochet, mohel, sopher. Shulcha Aruch Yoreh Deah 268:3-4 deals with this subject. The Shulchan Aruch begins by saying that all of the requirements of a convert must be done in front of a beis din of 3 including informing the convert of the ...
