comment Why Didn't Yosef tell Yaakov He was Still Alive?
@LarryK I don't agree... LEHAVDIL ELEF HAVDALOT Let's say you were a really big sports fan and you had no way of knowing if your favorite team had won (you didn't think they were going to), then some people that were at the game come- would you ask them if you're team won knowing they didn't have such a chance?

@jake because the Zohar isn't only Kabala or most other Kabbala books. The Zohar has Kabbala in it, but it also has what we would call today chumros.

@jake the Bet Yosef brings down Halacha many times from the Zohar. Example: Tefilin on Hol HaMoed. As I always say, we bring down halachot all the time from the Zohar even the Yalkut Yosef.

@jake the Zohar prohibits the taking of other books and using them to explain or even aid Torah study.

I heard that he does not hold of the philosophy of YU at all and has a totally different one, probably more similar to the Chofetz Chaim one.
