The prevailing practice is to always to chalitzah and not to do yobum. Why avoid doing yibum? From the description of the chumash chalitzah at best serms like the lesser option so why avoid the mitzvah of yibum?

  • "The prevailing practice is to always to chalitzah and not to do yobum" Huh? On what basis do you say that? That doesn't seem true – Double AA Jul 13 '17 at 11:42
  • @DoubleAA proving this is not true could be an answer – Laser123 Jul 13 '17 at 16:09
