  1. “I can assure you that you will not be disappointed!”

    A touch of hubris there…

  2. Apologize for my previous comment, I could have said it nicer….You would probably be more effective with a “softer” sell.

  3. It is not hubris. He says that if you enjoy his postings you will not be disappointed by the book. He is trying to give people a taste of what the book is like, and he is saying that it is like his posts. So if you don’t like the posts, the book is not for you, as you won’t like it either.


  4. hey,
    I am not in israel. how else can I get your newest sefer?

  5. Just reading through your list.
    Kissing children is wrong in shul (or hitting them!).
    Going to the zoo is a mitsva.
    Our tekufa is wrong. It should be the season change.

  6. Meir-

    ….youve just proven that youll really enjoy the books!!

    All the information in the post is valid for anywhere in the world.

  8. On simchas torah during hakofos. A person holding a sefer torah gave it away to hold his grandchild instead. It reminded me of kissing a child in shul.
    The tekufa today has four applications. One when to start saying tal umotor. Two when ‘nittal’ is. Three when to ‘throw’ out the water and four when to say birchas hachamo. Since the longest night is not December the 25th he most likely was not born then but a few days earlier.
    Folding a tallis. One should not do this on shabbos unless you have used someone else’s (without permission!) and not the same folds.
    To fold it after shabbos is a ‘segula’ for sholom bayis. If you wait till the next morning you have to shake off the ‘klippos’.
    The shabbos before the wedding the boy gets an aliya and has an aufruf to prove to the girl he wont change his mind. If the wedding is in the middle of the week it should ideally be done the shabbos before since there should be seven days from ‘tovua’.

  9. Please consider publishing it on LULU (if feasible), that way it’s a lot easier for us outside of Israel to place an order.
