comment Touching a woman and the first Pesukim in Melachim
Chas Vesholom to even say he couldn't. The Gemoro (Sanhedrin 22a) relates that Avishag begged David to have relations with her. He refused. She said to him that the reason he refused is because he was too old for it and did not have the strength. David sent for Batsheva his wife to come in, and in front of Avishag had relations with BatSheba 13 times in a row to show to Avishag that it was not from lack of strength that he refrained from having relations with her. Rather he refrained for Halachic mixed will moral reasons.

comment Jewish concept of angels
@msh210 in that case what do you define as free will? Perhaps God is giving them the will so you anyway cant call it free will. Regardless the Yalkut is clearly mashmah that on a usual basis the Malachim have the power to choose but in this special case their power was revoked.

comment Goshen, the most immoral part of Mitzrayim
@sethJ (Rashi says the word Ervah not Tumah). I think it is a bit of both. The Rashi would seem to be more natural and the first vort would seem to be a Hanhagah of Hashem!

agreed, but the only difference between Tehillim is the plural. I doubt that the meaning would have changed. +1 for noting the Nusach Ari, it makes it even more interesing. When was it first printed and what was the format then?

comment Amira Lakum: say you can't say?
@sam That Mishnah Brurah actually asks my question of how you get around the problem of being Neheneh from a Maaseh from a Goy on Shabbos. He answers that in his case he already could read and his reading ability only improved, so it is not counted as a proper Hana'ah! In the air-con case however, it is making the room properly warm whereas before it was cold. Once again, perhaps Kivuy of Air-Con is not called Hanaah too.

comment Amira Lakum: say you can't say?
can you source your presumption that one can hint and say "it is cold in here", hoping he will realize and shut the air conditioner? Its not that simple at all. If it cold enough for the people nearby to be considered to be a Choleh, one may say it outright. If it is not so cold, then I dont really see why it is Muttar. Why isnt it benefiting from a Malacha of a Goy that was done for a Yid that is Ossur. Perhaps though 'shutting off' is not benefiting!

@DoubleAA When you learn Perek Kirah in the evenings, it does!

comment What foods are considered Mitztamek Veyafe lo?
@DoubleAA definitely not. Tosafos in Shabbos 38 is very clear that whether something is or is not mitztamek veyafe lo is not dependent on how cooked it is. He says that water even when not cooked at all because after it is fully cooked is not mitztamek veyafe lo, it has a Din of Eino mitztamek veyafe lo. Mmitztamek veyafe lo depends on whether the food improves after the fully cooked stage!
