Answer A: How can we grow this community?
I can answer all your questions here. Why no one bothers answering any of your questions is because they always get downvoted without any reason. And that is not only for answers but even for perfectly good questions. I have noticed that during my months suspension (which I suppose is your idea of...

Comment Post #284927 well of course it was to satisfy greed and thereby avoid death. If esav would be satisfied he wouldnt come to kill him. Not surprised this site gives upvotes for stupid posts, and downvotes for clever ones. No wonder no one ever looks at it.

Comment Post #284927 What would you do if your life depended on it. Esav was about to kill Yaakov, would you not employ 'optics' to save your life. I know a silly question. You would not, you would play by the book.

Comment Post #278321 well the midrash says after the akeida he sent yitshchak to learn by shem. Why he hadnt learned enough till now is a good question and if you ask it I will answer it. We also find that yitschak went to get ketura or hagar I think. We also find that that yaakov cooked lentils on avrahams death and ei...

Comment Post #282335 You have come to the wrong place for an answer. No one here knows much about christianty and even less about islam. All we can tell you is what Judaism is, which I think you already know. You may also like to know what Jewish rabbis living near to the time of the founder of Islam thought about him an...

Comment Post #283553 The adjective is correct. There is really a word missing in the torah. It should say she the woman is hated. Like saying she is black or white. But the other one is a verb called a present static one. Similar to boruch.

Question smichus amolek to bikkurim
At the end of Ki Setze we talk about Amolek. The next sidra, Ki Savo, starts off about Bikkurim. In chumash everything has to have a connection. So what is the connection between them?

Question Why must yefas toar be allowed
We have in Ki Setze the laws of 'yefas toar' meaning a non-Jewish woman captured in war whom a Jewish man now wants as his wife. The meforshim (commentators) say that the only reason this was allowed is that if there were a law against it it would not be kept since the yetser hora (temptation) is ver...

Comment Post #281340 i think he is saying that rashi doesnt mean 'or' but both sometimes this happens. So he explains why you need both reasons not knowing how to shake it and not knowing the brocho. But in matsa it seems not knowing how to eat it doesnt exist only not knowing the brocho. So not knowing the brocho means ...

Comment Post #281272 @robev. You dont address my question of why people dont come here and instead like yourself go to SE which is more important than what you ask me. People are not interested to come here to gain votes, but that doesnt mean they want to be abused by downvotes. There is a lot of interest in the SE chat ...

Comment Post #280891 A pity only five have seen my post. It deserves a much wider audience. It is so important. And means no one is keeping nidda today.

Comment Post #280891 @sabbahillel They certainly do. Not everytime is the woman tomai because some blood is not considered dam nidda or from the menstrual cycle even coming from the womb. That depends on doctors not on laws of the torah. You had better go to your rabbi and find out. In plain English there are heterim whi...
