  1. Yeshar Coach. The advice you give is spot on. Keep up the good work. 🙂

  2. Simple question-the Talmud in Bava Basra 88b, as well as Rashbam there, as well as HaEemek Davar on Vayikra 20:2:, points out that while Teshuva from Arayos is relatively easy to accomplish, it is virtually impossible to do Teshuvah for improper weights and measurements in one’s business because of the sheer number of customers that you defrauded. If that is the case, how do we understand the clamor for filters, etc, in the face of proof that filters don’t work?

  3. I think this shiur was the best in the series so far. These things haven’t been said, and you have the zechus of saying it first.
