A Little bit of Knowledge

 
3rd Adar, 5770

DID YOU KNOW THAT

If the Sheliah Siboor – the cantor – started the repetition of the Shemoneh Esre – Amidah – while there were ten men present and then people left leaving less than a quorum of ten in the room – he continues the recitation of the blessings until he completes the entire Amidah.

However, in situations where the Kohanim would bless the people in the middle of the Amidah’s repetition – ten must be present when the Kohanim start the blessings. Should some of the people who were present when the Sheliah Siboor began the repetition of the Amidah leave he may complete the Amidah but the Kohanim do not bless.

Once they do begin the blessings with a quorum of ten they may complete the blessings even if people leave and there are less than ten left in the room.

Through suffering we discover the great power of brotherly love. At no time are we as capable of giving love and receiving it as when suffering knocks on our door.

A Little bit of Knowledge

 
2nd Adar, 5770

DID YOU KNOW THAT

One who is reciting the Keriyat Shema may not signal with his eyes, or mouth out words with his lips, or indicate with his fingers during the first paragraph, which, is the essential portion of acceptance of the yoke of Heaven. These activities belittle the Shema which, to the contrary, must be an established firm commitment not a casual one.

A Little bit of Knowledge 27th Shevat 5770

DID YOU KNOW THAT

There is a custom to eat dairy foods on Shabuot. The customs vary.

Some eat only dairy foods.

Others eat dairy foods before the standard holiday meat meal.

There are those that eat dairy foods as part of the meal. These people must eat a parve food, then drink and wash their hands before eating meat.
