Recent Interesting Links

  • Rav Shteinman Shlit"a says Tefillot should be increased, including Tehillim chapters 20, 93 83, 130, and 142 due to the matzav.  R' Adlerstein over at Cross-Currents tells us that the next week is likely to be very scary and the best way to conquer the Palestinians' request for a state and the violence that לא עלינו may arise from it is "davening up a storm".
  • Rav Ovadia Shlit"a said that right-wingers are G-d-fearing people, while left-wingers are destructive angels.  Relating to the hurricane in the U.S., Rav Ovadia said that this was decreed on Rosh Hashana, adding, "For us, Baruch Hashem, there is no Typhoon - we have Ribbi Tarfon - we sit and learn Torah."  May he continue to do so for many more years to come.
  • After Dov Bar Leib posted his thoughts that Hoshana Rabba is the last time for Teshuva for common decency, Shirat Devorah has some more info about the harsh decrees that were לא עלינו decreed upon us, saying it's delayed until Hoshana Rabba.

Why are we reading all sort of rumors and stuff and not a word about Shlomo Rubashkin?

Should we say 83 instead of 93? I'm wondering if 93 was a typo.

Daniela, the unfortunate Sholom Rubashkin verdict - which I saw on Friday - was not on my mind at the time that I wrote this, but I agree it's important news too.

Anonymous, you're likely right as the Kikar article mentions 83 and anyways, 83 is the one usually read in these situations.
