One comment

  1. The firm stand on Kapparot is particularly interesting given that there is no makor in the Talmud, and the makor in Rashi is for plants, not animals. Given that the underpinnings have been lost, one might conclude that it is hard to be certain as to what the original intent was.

    The spate of articles on the 40th anniversary of the Yom Kippur war , and the mesirat nefesh of those who fought and suffered and died for klal tisrael is overwhelming. Especially since the sifrei meitim (literally) are open tomorrow, may we all pray and act on their behalf.
