יִתְגַּדַּל וְיִתְקַדַּשׁ שְׁמֵיהּ רַבָּא: אמן

בְּעָלְמָא דִּי בְרָא, כִרְעוּתֵהּ וְיִמְלוֹךְ מַלְכוּתֵהּ, וְיַצְמַח פֻּרְקָנֵהּ, וִיקָרֵב מְשִׁיחֵהּ, וְיִפְרוֹק עַמֵּיהּ, בְּחַיֵּיכוֹן וּבְיוֹמֵיכוֹן וּבְחַיֵּיהוֹן דְּכָל בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל, בַּעֲגַלָא וּבִזְמַן קָרִיב, וְאִמְרוּ אָמֵן. אָמֵן יְהֶא שְׁמֵיהּ רַבָּא מְבָרַךְ, לְעָלַם וּלְעָלְמֵי עָלְמַיָּא

יִתְבָּרַךְ אמן וְיִשְׁתַּבַּח וְיִתְפָּאַר וְיִתְרוֹמַם וְיִתְהַדַּר וְיִתְעַלֶּה וְיִתְהַלָּל וְיִתְנַשֵּׂא, שְׁמֵהּ דְּקֻדְשָׁא בְרִיךְ הוּא: אמן

לְעֵלָּא לְעֵלָּא מִן כָּל בִּרְכָתָא, שִׁירָתָא, תִּשְׁבְּחָתָא וְנֶחָמָתָא דַאֲמִירָן בְּעָלְמָא, וְאִמְרוּ אָמֵן: אמן

יְהֶא שְׁלָמָא רַבָּא מִן שְׁמַיָּא וְסִיַּעְתָּא וּפוּרְקָנָא וּרְוַחָא וְחִנָּא וְחִסְדָּא וְרַחֲמֵי עֲלֵיכוֹן וַעֲלַנָא וְעַל כָּל קְהָלְהוֹן דְּכָל בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל לְחַיִּים וּלְשָׁלוֹם וְאִמְרוּ אָמֵן: אמן

עֹשֶׂה שָׁלוֹם בִּמְרוֹמָיו, הוּא בְּרַחֲמָיו יַעֲשֶׂה שָׁלוֹם עָלֵינוּ, וְעַל כָּל יִשְׂרָאֵל, וִינַחֲמֵנוּ בְּצִיוֹן וְיִבְנֶה בְּרַחֲמָיו אֶת יְרוּשָׁלָיִם בְּחַיֵּינוּ וּבְיָמֵינוּ בְּקָרוֹב אָמֵן וְאָמֵן: אמן

comment The Origins of the Zohar - Why is it accepted as being true?
@ShmuelBrin but if he had a stronger stance like his grandfather, he would probably say it is a miswo daoroitho to stop people from believing in this book for it filled with avodho zoro. just like his grandfather said .

comment The Origins of the Zohar - Why is it accepted as being true?
@ShmuelBrin zohar is only midrash it is not a must to believe in midrash. at most its a darabbonon. mori qafih olow ha sholom doesnt say it is an issur darabbonon but believing in midrosh is. if someone holds zohar to be a reliable midrosh from ban yohai olow ha sholom then that is what is being argued over. causing arguments over it is daoroitho while believing in the zohar or any midrosh is only darabbonon. so if you believe in it then believe in it and dont start fights. he was basically a pacifist due to living in israel where majority are zohar followers.he was scared of public resentment

comment The Origins of the Zohar - Why is it accepted as being true?
@mevaqesh when i wrote on top mori qafih i meant mori yahya al qafah olow ha sholom. however, i do remember hearing students of his talking about the zohar in regards to mori yusuf olow ha sholom. it was said that if you know his background you already know the answer. however publicly he never stated anything. again, this is because he didnt want condemnation. i somewhat of a student. i didnt learn from him personally but i learned from someone that did

comment The Origins of the Zohar - Why is it accepted as being true?
@mevaqesh almost forgot, there is some speculation that hakhom ovadiyo yoseif olow ha sholom may have rejected the zohar because mori qafih olow ha sholom sat on the same beith deen as him and they most certainly talked. it is of no surprise that ovadio yoseif olow ha sholom goes according to jamaro over zohar even in cases where zohar is prevalent according to custom today. i forgot what exactly was the example. but that is just speculation and it doesnt really matter to me as i am not his hoseedh

@mevaqesh i suggest you read academia.edu/11074987/Mori_Yusuf savi langerman studied under mori qafih olow ha sholom for 6 years in mora navukhim in original arabic and he learned other things as well. he writes something bout the navi'im and the ma'asa markavo but doesnt elaborate. he uses the language of the rambom and his son and mori qafih aleiham ha sholom when it comes to keeping something secret but letting you guess in and try to find clues in the paper for the answer. you will like it

comment The Origins of the Zohar - Why is it accepted as being true?
@mevaqesh from what i read the r emden olow ha sholom did say the entire zohar is a forgery. it was the hatham sofer which said it was only added with things from later generations. shadal olow ha sholom said it was a forgery as well

comment The Origins of the Zohar - Why is it accepted as being true?
@mevaqesh mori qafih olow ha sholom was of the opinion that one shouldnt cause mahloqoth as that is daoroitho while believing in the zohar and other things are of darabbonon in origin. thereby do what you do and leave others alone. you can argue with your own same minded people but not with others. they wont get you and theres no reason to do it. its pointless.

comment The Origins of the Zohar - Why is it accepted as being true?
@mevaqesh mori qafih olow ha sholom didnt specifically write about his opinions on the matter. he even uses the zohar for mussar and quotes it a few times here and there. however, his grandfather's olow ha sholom movement, dor doi'eem which mori qafih olow ha sholom sorta inherited and lead was afraid to make their school of though public in israel because of condemnation. therefore whatever was said was said privately in secret or during mori qafih's olow ha sholom mora navukhim lectures.

comment Is it permissible to cheat at board games?
@Maimonist its not about gambling games. its bout middoth ro. having even the slightest of such a middo is unacceptable if i remember correctly

comment Is it permissible to cheat at board games?
we are not allowed to play gambling games not even with minors without money so as to not teach them middoth ro.being deceitful even in a board game is a middo ro and can cause you to be deceitful in more important things like business transactions. therefore it is forbidden in my opinion

comment Did any Achronim Write Books Comparing Arabic to Hebrew?
@Maimonist its obvious rasaj zl is too late. its obviously teimonim(and all those around rasaj zl) that pronounced with a jeem didnt start when rasaj zl was writing the book. its obviously much older. rasaj zl is 9-10th century while scholars say it is already from the 7th. academia.edu/8770050/… go to page 54 second to bottom paragraph and down for scholarly opinion

comment Did any Achronim Write Books Comparing Arabic to Hebrew?
@Maimonist actually the scholarly opinion for the spread of the jeem throughout the arab world is after the quran in the 7th century because of the badawi invasion. none city dwellers like the badawis spoke their own dialect which influenced others to speak that way once they got into power. it is said that muhammad might have said geem. however the jeem is much older and goes back to babylon even from where the teimonim come from. they didnt come from aras yisroeil but from boval. in boval they already had the jeem and it is even purported that our prophets spoke this way as well maybe.

comment Did any Achronim Write Books Comparing Arabic to Hebrew?
@Maimonist not to mention that msa is not used in day to day between countrymen. they speak their own dialect of arabic and only use msa to speak to other country men. also i have no clue where you got the idea that jeem was made standard for all teimonim in aras yisroeil because the adhaneem still say geem and qof and those from saana still say jeem.

comment Did any Achronim Write Books Comparing Arabic to Hebrew?
@Maimonist yes the teimonim from sanaa pronounce is as jeem while those from adhaan and near by areas like sharaab pronounce is as geem and qof, however that is also the same with the arabic of those regions. the arabs pronounce the jeem as geem and gof as qof in those areas. it is in no way right to say that "majority" of teimonim pronounce it s geem and qof. the masri dialect is widely spoke now. modern standard arabic is the masri dialect but hence the name modern stanndard arabic. and even in msa people pronounce the jeem and not geem. only northern masrim pronounce it as geem.
