Is this true? Would he not get business elsewhere? Is each sale an Aveirah per se?

comment What's the deal with female Rabbis?
@sam That's a little harsh. There are also plenty of Rishonim who make no mention of such a prohibition and it isn't found in the Talmud or the Shulchan Arukh. Moreover, it isn't clear what a משימה is technically and whether or not a modern congregational leader is under that rubric. Their contract is renewed by the board after all. And as you know Dayanus is not really at stake here. Most Orthodox male Rabbis aren't even qualified for that.

comment Why is a woman allowed to get pregnant?
@user6591 Hevel was a shepherd. Clearly it's not just farming but any kind of work which generates a marketable product. So actually it was your anti-(anti-kollel) vitriol that snuck in.

comment Why is a woman allowed to get pregnant?
I wouldn't say we are allowed to die. We try very hard to avoid it and do it against our will. Should we act the same regarding pregnancy (try very hard to avoid it)?

comment Why is a woman allowed to get pregnant?
The Ran is the only thing hear which seems on point, and I'm not sure that even it is enough justification to put herself in danger.

comment Should Jews be environmentalists?
You can edit your post to undupe it or emphasize the non-dupe part and how it's not duped. Also we can consider merging the answers one way or the other.
