@DoubleAA Great. But if that's right, why did the sifrei specify 5?

comment Over what parts of current Israel do the laws of Shemittah apply?
@Matt Thank you. I look forward to your summary and could you please recommend a contemporary book on the laws of shmitah (which contains the section I need). I understand the point about political boundaries; however we know geographically what is meant by "the West Bank" and so from the geographical references, we can work out he answer.

comment Sliding tzitzis knot on Shabbos
This ehow explains how to tie tzitzis. At the end it says, "Tips & Warnings Wet all of the knots with boiling water then let them air dry. This will make the knots dry tighter and stronger to prevent unwinding." The threads shrink as they dry and this is what tightens the knots. I am unsure as to whether boiling water is essential or lower temperatures are also effective.

comment Is it correct to say now “Moshiach must come in this generation”?
@DoubleAA The statement made by the maggid shiur related to the conditions of Sotah 49b being fulfilled now. For the past he could argue that they were not fulfilled.
