  1. About tahorapp.com… I was one of the many who saw a blue-and-black dress as white-and-gold. The whole brouhaha over The Dress has made me skeptical about a rabbi’s ability to determine that it is indeed an easy question. Compared to blue vs white, the difference between some shades of red and a tahor light brown is nothing.

    It would seem to me that to be able to use this tech for mar’os, we would need to give the user strict instructions about lighting. And even then only stick to “easy cases.”

I don’t know much about it or the technology, but that is what I’ve been told. Since responsible people are involved, I wouldn’t assume the worst.
