Cutting Hair/Nails On Shabbos

DK Says Nice Things about AY at Beyondbt.com

DK is David Kirschner and he sits in the front right section of the Shul on Shabbos. I'm not sure where his wife Bella sits in the women's section when she comes.

In a recent post at Beyond Teshuva titled Davening in Shul or Yeshiva he explains why he is now regularly davening at AY.

R' Yechezkel Rosenberg on Eating Your Vegetables (how much?) and Joining In Zimun- mp3

In R' Yechezkel Rosenberg's chavrusa program this morning we explored whether you must eat a kezayis of vegetables to join in a zimun and whether somebody who joins in based on vegetables has to say an after brocha or can he be yotzei with the leaders benching. An interesting footnote was the Chazon Ish's reference to the Chofetz Chaim as the GRIM.

This particular sugya was one of the most difficult to date, but R' Rosenberg made it digestible for all those present. If you missed it, you can download it here.

Mosdos Toldos Aaron
On behalf of Mosdos Toldos Aaron we take great pleasure in inviting you to an evening of inspiration with the participation of the Admor Shlit"a. Anyone who has ever visited Yerushalayim does not need an introduction to the holy Mosdos Hatorah that enrich the spiritual lives of so many. The chinuch of Torah and Avodah exemplified by this kehillah touches the lives of us all and surely brings the "shefa" that we need here in the United States. The financial burden of the Mosdos is impossible for them to bear alone, and it is up to us to help them continue in their holy work.
Please honor us with your presence.
