Question someone I know got concerning a contribution: Do you want your donation to the shul to be לעילוי נשמת ………

Response: I’d go with anonymous and pray that hkbh directs his accountant to allocate it to where it’s most needed. As a matter fact maybe that should be The inscription


Talmud Chulin 13b “… amar R’Yochanan nochrim shebechutza laretz lav ovdei avodat kochavim hein ela minhag avoteihem by adeihem” [my translation – R’Yochanan said non-bnai brit outside of Israel aren’t (true) idol worshippers rather their ancestors’ practices are in their hands (me – habituation)]. I’m often accused of being too cryptic in my comments – can you guess why this insight saddened me in some current implications? [hint – Pogo – “we have met the enemy _ _ _ _”]

  1. Hi!
    In reference to your question-it sounds like narishkeit. What does one have to do with the other. You could give Tzedoko l’ilui nishmas and daven that it goes to the right place
    If an oni comes to your door (where you know that he is an oni) and you give him an amount, surely you could say a tefilla to yourself that it should be l’ilui nishmas Ploini.
