comment If a virgin birth actually disqualifies a Messianic candidate, how then should Isaiah 7:14 be interpreted?
'Twas my bad, I misread on my first pass.

That her naming would be prophetic is mentioned by Rashi, but he doesn't specify that that is what the proof is. "and this is the sign, for she is a young girl, and she never prophesied, yet in this instance, Divine inspiration shall rest upon her. ... And some interpret that this is the sign, that she was a young girl and incapable of giving birth."

comment Hassidim and white shirt
Assuming that the answer is yes, the reason is so that the right side of the garment should be buttoned over the left, thereby putting chesed on top of gevurah.

comment Hassidim and white shirt
Hey @maaaan, welcome to Mi Yodeya! Usually, it's the opposite: Chesed is connected with the right side and gevurah with the left. Also, what do you mean by "button these shirts from the left?" You mean that the buttons are on the left side (from the wearers perspective)?

comment Mesorah of the Lubavitcher Rebbe
Ah, that is true, thanks! Well, if the chain is made up of people who they just "learned from," that ought to be very easy, but if the chain is more of "rebbe to rebbe" (i.e., mentor to mentor) than we're back to the Baal Shem Tov, I think.

comment Mesorah of the Lubavitcher Rebbe
Out of curiousity, why ask about Lubavitch? Your question is really about the Baal Shem Tov's mesorah, right?

comment What's wrong with “we want moshiach now”?
Was R' Shimon referring to the demand, or to the repetition?
