comment Obligation of community to support those who study Torah?
@DoubleAA I would be sincerely interested in an elaboration of the halachas and sources involved. There should be more answers to this question.

comment Obligation of community to support those who study Torah?
My Rosh Yeshivah was the late Rabbi Azriel Goldfein z"tzl, who got smicha at Telz Yeshivah and who was a talmid muvhak of Rabbi Mordechai Gifter. I have heard a shiur by Rabbi Gifter wherein he declares: "I am not an Orthodox Jew, I am a Torah Jew!", and Rabbi Goldfein held the same. In my experience he opposed the stratification of Judaism (he would have cringed to be called Chareidi or Modern Orthodox) so it is difficult to pigeonhole his hashkafa with a label.

comment How is shechitah done without machinery?
@Ariel It might have been uncommon privately, but it was definitely done regularly in the Temple, so there must have been a standard procedure.
