comment Are the airuv rav compared to tza'ras?
I have vague recollection of learning something to this effect once and it would make a killer addition to my shavuos dvar torah

comment Are you culpable for things done under hypnosis?
@MonicaCellio you can certainly extend the question to being drugged though hypnosis is much easier to do through simple verbal suggestion. regarding damages see judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/6397/…

@MonicaCellio 1. it is possible that he was hypnotized unwittingly and 2. from what i understand on purim you are not culpable for damages caused while drunk.

comment how do you pronounce the soft reish?
@DoubleAA not being a linguist i'm taking kaplan's word that the hard one is what we currently use, not the soft one.

comment how do you pronounce the soft reish?
@msh210 kaplan lists 14 used in 10 discrete words, my question is how exactly are those letters properly pronounced. ps. you should totally open a sefer y'tzira, it's awesome.

comment Are conservative, reform and those “off the derech” part of 'amcha'?
without devolving into a discussion of when to apply the precept of judging someone favorably i will say 1) someone who is "off the derech" is clearly violating torah law willfully, if that's not a rasha i don't know what is 2)there are certain parts of judaism that make you a mumar l'kol hatorah kula. Can we agree that if he violates those he is no longer part of amcha?

@Dave the question wasn't posted seriously, just to mess with you. @ Hod - characters left before it would let me post that comment.
