comment Killing Civilians in a defensive war
@dotancohen without religion there is no morality. thats pretty low to compare such a holy man to islamist wackos

comment Killing Civilians in a defensive war
@dotancohen is it possible that Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu zt'l knows better than you the torah perspective on this question? we are in a state of war. if we lose even once, we will all be slaughtered brutally and mercilessly. what you are doing is noble but it might not be best policy long term

comment How are “Orthoprax” people treated in halacha?
@Matt and this is why i wrote in the answer that i'm not so sure they really dont believe. many are just confused souls who believe deep down but wont admit it

comment Killing Civilians in a defensive war
@dotancohen your policy is obviously not working. the arabs'desire to destroy israel is only increasing from all perspectives. i think we will see in the end that the rabbi was right. you have noble intentions but sometimes its just kill or be killed

comment How are “Orthoprax” people treated in halacha?
@Matt could also be that today taava/mental distraction/doubt is much stronger than in the rambam's time due to technology, darwin, etc, so the rambam may not be so stringent with his words if he lived in our times

comment How are “Orthoprax” people treated in halacha?
@Matt this was the last sefer he wrote so yes. how about adding your own answer which is probably betterthan this one

comment How are “Orthoprax” people treated in halacha?
@Matt because he knew the rambam and those after him. sefer hamitzvot is not a mussar sefer. the chafetz chaim wrote it as a practical work as he explained in the intro there

comment Can demons (shedim) masquerade Bas Kols?
if you are a pure and clean holy man, the shedim have no power over you as brought down in shaarei kedusha. see judaism.stackexchange.com/a/48552/1857

comment Why was Yitzhak “laughing” with his wife openly?
the zohar on bechukosai talks about this. see verse 12 yeshshem.com/zohar-bechukotai-section-2.htm "Abimelech, king of the Philistines, looked out at a window" (Gen. 26:8). It says here, "out at a window," and elsewhere, "The mother of Sisera looked out at the window" (Shoftim 5:28). AS THE FORMER VERSE PERTAINS TO WITCHCRAFT, SO DOES THE LATTER ABOUT ABIMELECH PERTAIN TO WITCHCRAFT.

comment How to pray for something
very good shiur. said alot about the importance of prayer and that it helps, but i did not find that it addresses the point of how to pray. ok, it says make a request, but when that is done, then what? do you keep repeating the same request over and over, or do you try to find new types of arguments?
