comment Not allowing one's tzitzis to show in a cemetary according to the Rambam
@Yishai why is it pulled out of thin air? The Rambam puts not bring tefillin and a sefer Torah into a Beis HaKavaros in the SAME halacha as not bring those items into a Beis HaKisa and Beis HaMerchatz!

comment Not allowing one's tzitzis to show in a cemetary according to the Rambam
@Shokhet true but why did the Rambam mix those cases together (cematary, bathroom, bathhouse.) If he doesn't bring the case of tzitzis, which I'm almost sure he doesn't then it might be an interesting proof to the fact that he doesn't hold of la'ag l'rash and would fit in very well I think with other shitas. But maybe he does bring the din of tzitzis and I haven't found it? (No mention in the Beis Yosef or tzion to the Rambam on that daf gemara)

Where did you "hear" this from?

@GershonGold You're right in a way the quotes and lashon give it the wrong connotation. There are "made up" things that are both good and bad.

comment Quote from the Chazzon Ish about “Mizrachim”
@Lee absolutely! In it's presented form though it's a good example of the sinas chinam we find now a days. The way the person said it over would not be the way a Gadol or any Jew should speak that's why we need to get to the bottom of it.

@DoubleAA It definitely is and I'm sure this is isn't the first thing for chassidim to "make up". However I'm trying to find if there is any 'earlier' makor for it. Similar to that of when a Chasson leaves his town to get married in a different town there is a minhag among chassidim to make a seudah. Could also just be an idea of "תופסים סיבה לעשות מסיבה"

@Lee So this "Talmid Hakham" thought it was also okay to speak lashon hara or motzei shem rah?

comment Is there an obligation to be buried in Jewish Cemetary?
My late brother served in the US Army and my Father wanted him to have a proper military burial for his honor being that he was nifter young (33 years old.) However he found out that there was no "Jewish section" in the local veterans cemetery. So he of course decided to have him buried in a regular Jewish cemetery. Just sharing the story.

comment May one give a child a Meat meal on Erev Shabbos Chazon if they are always served on Erev Shabbos a meat meal?
Perhaps there is a misunderstanding about what age of a child we are dealing with.

@DoubleAA From the teshuva yes, however halacha l'maseh I would disagree.

comment What can one learn on Tisha B'Av?
@DoubleAA At the end of the day though it's still Torah. I'm happy to have gained the knowledge whether it be in Nach, Gemara, Medresh, Halacha, etc.

comment Studying mussar and philosophy on tisha b'av
Learning Mussar, etc seems pashut as most of these "drashos" said on Tisha B'Av and broadcasted around the world are usually about mussar, middos, being nice to one another, coming closer to HaShem, etc.

@DoubleAA So what about someone who derives pleasure from learning ANY part of Torah even the "sad" stuff?

Do you plan on swallowing it? Maybe you don't need a bracha at all? What about netilas yadiem?
