Trump's logic that local communities come first seems to follow Tractate Nedarim 80b: מעיין של בני העיר חייהן וחיי אחרים חייהן קודמין לחיי אחרים A spring in one town should be used for the local citizens drinking as their lives come before the lives of citizens of the other Towns. Logical Mitvos like honouring parents even Gentiles would be ...


There are numerous factors that need consideration for a full answer, and every scenario needs a case-by-case analysis. See here and here for a partial treatment. To answer the specific question of distance - there is no minimum distance that makes or breaks a minyan. However, the Minchas Yitzchok adds two conditions which must be met: תלוי בשמיעת הש"ץ ...


We should be cautious not to put the blame on any specific rabbi since coronavirus was a natural event. However, the Talmud (I forget the source but the point is definitely there) states that one who is killed due to irresponsibility loses share in the world to come.[1] As I have written previously here, the world works according to the laws of nature.

The Gemora 76b asks regarding the case of "it should be a Get now if i don't come back here in 12 months time (same would apply with returning to where she lives in 30 days)". How can we even know that he really came back to where his wife lives if the stipulation is between the husband and wife (i.e he could just say he came back and she'll never be ...


I don't believe the precedent of חקקו ולבסוף קבעו is relevant as is clearly stated that is because יש שם כלי בתלוש. Since a bathtub is unusable בתלוש even though it has a form of a בית קיבול it is not considered a כלי קיבול and is kosher for a mikvah.


i don't think the notion of חקקו ולבסוף קבעו is relevant as that is because שנקרא שם כלי בתלוש but a bathtub is unusable before installed to the ground. As far as the water could ice cubes be melted in the bathtub? i think most rishonim hold פנים חדשות באו לכאן שמג ןא the פסול שאובים

This seems to be a dispute between Rashi and Rambam. According to Rashi (Sanhedrin 72b DH Yatza Rosho), the fetus is not considered a separate entity. יצא ראשו - באשה המקשה לילד ומסוכנת וקתני רישא החיה פושטת ידה וחותכתו ומוציאתו לאברים דכל זמן שלא יצא לאויר העולם לאו נפש הוא וניתן להורגו ולהציל את אמו אבל יצא ראשו אין נוגעים בו להורגו דהוה ליה כילוד ואין ...
