In the top right corner, in English: Schneerson was born ninety-six years ago today 11 Nisan, He was born with a mission To change the world in which we live and lead it to the ultimate redemption as predicted by the prophets.
Appreciation of the Rebbe's impact on Jewish life around the world is not limited to his followers and Chasidim. Single-mindedly and single-handedly the Rebbe built and empire of outreach, teaching and humanitarian aid that has touched the lives of millions. He inspired the self-sacrifice of those who stoked the embers of Jewish life during the darkest decades of Soviet Communism.
More recently he dispatched scores of rabbis to rebuild the Jewish infrastructure in those same countries after the collapse of the evil empire. Under the harsh glare of hostile regimes, his Shluchim emissaries risk their lives to maintain Jewish education and celebration, while from Perth to Peru, young Lubavitch couples tend to the needs of the most far-flung Jewish communities.
On a more intimate level, the Rebbe is a source of help and hope to hundreds of thousands who turn to him for advice and blessing. His miraculous intervention on behalf of the sick, the emotionally scarred, and the materially beleaguered is truly the stuff of legends.
His awesomely accurate and prophetic ability to foresee personal and global developments, compel us to take note of his interpretation of the dynamic of the contemporary world. In the polar tension between miraculous global events on the one hand and the spiritual degradation is social values and human behavior on the other, the Rebbe has identified the threshold of the Messianic era, and ultimate redemption for all humankind.
The Rebbe predicted such major milestones as the fall of Communism, the victory of Israel in its wars, and its emergence unscathed from the Iraqi threat, well in advance of their occurrence. And the Rebbe points to unprecedented positive trends - towards peace among the nations, the curing of illness, greater prosperity and plummenting [[sic]] crime levels - as a clear demonstration of the unfolding of redemption, culminating in the Rebbe's prophetic declaration, [[ bold and italic: Moshiach's presence and achievements are already manifest.
The complete redemption and transformation of the world is imminent. Its fulfillment is something which we have the power and obligation to accelerate, by reinforcing our belief in the imminence of redemption and our acceptance of Moshiach. Celebrate the Rebbe's 96th birthday by drawing Moshiach that much more into the open. Only we can make it happen sooner, by committing ourselves to mitzvahs and acts of lovingkindness that will bring harmony and redemption into all of our lives. In honor of the Rebbe's birthday, I hereby commit myself to the following improvements in my lifestyle in order to hasten the arrival of Moshiach and Redemption for all mankind.
The plant sends runners or shoots, which flower and produce fruit.
Both blackberries and raspberries take two years to profuce fruit bienniel. The first year the runner grows, it flowers but produces no fruit. The next year, it flowers and produces fruit, and that's it. Nothing happens with that runner in following years except for its draining of the plant's resources, which is why the two year old runners are normally pruned off after the fruit-producing season.
Incidentally, raspberries have two main varieties one of which might be called blackberries by some peopleand blackberries have several popular varieties including boysenberry, loganberry, dewberry Or maybe I reversed it.
My point is, if you publicize your results, be mindful that what you refer to as a blackberry might be interpreted as a raspberry. Not that it would make a difference; my understanding is that the brocho on all raspberry varieties and all blackberry varieties is the same, since the plants grow in the same way.
The are other berries which grow in bushes, where each shoot branch produces fruit year after year. I believe blueberries are in this group. As far as papaya is concerned, I don't have information off hand, but I'm reasonably sure it's not related to berries.
Probably the safest way to continue your investigation would be to buy blueberry, raspberry, blackberry, strawberry runners, but I don't know the life-cycle off handetc. After three years, you would be able to see which plants do what, and draw conclusions appropriately. Or would that be a breach of mesora?
Wednesday, April 08, 4: I can,t get an answer here. In fact, I recently had a conversation with Rabbi Chaim Twerski, who is actually making Pesach and too busy to write at length, but said he will get around to it eventually, about shiurim, and was reminded that the Rambam gave the shiur in Egyptian drams, that somehow correlated to barleycorns, and that while R' Chaim Na'eh was really just validating the extant minhag, he did use drams and barley to confirm the measurements.
I recall that the Mishna Middos? Among others the dimensions of the Temple x amot do not fit unto the har habayit if one uses the Chazon Ish shiur. Yhere are many other similar cases. Akthough most mikvaot that have been found from second Temple days contain way more than the minimum 40 sa-ah according to all shitot there are some that are too small according to Chazon Ish.
I once heard a quote in the name of Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach that the father of the Chazon Ish did not keep Chazon Ish shiurim not to mention the existing kiddush cup of the Chaftez Chaim. I know of no ashkenazi rav that accepts this, It is easy for a sefardi rav to pasken that ashkenazim should adopt sefardi halacha. There have also appeared several articles denying his allegation that Rav Yosef Karo has to be accepted as the posek for Israel. If you are recommending the group to individuals, please have them let me know and I will add them, no questions asked, on the assumption that you would not recommend someone not suitable.
I would appreciate if some of you might suggest questions to ask or guidelines to follow in accepting others who find out by chance of the group's existence.
The subscription privelege is really the only "filter" imposed on the group, and I think it is a good thing. If someone would also like to serve on a "subscription committee" or advisory group someone commented I'm taking this way too seriously, but I can't think of a less pompous term: Britta water filters Message-ID: He says that there is a vegetable substance in the filter, and Britta won't tell him what is in it.
So for the moment, don't use it. If anybody knows more, please tell us. We would like to use ours! That would be intersting, for he writesthat a person from Edut haMizrach woukld requier Hatarah! It's in Yechaveh Daas 1: Even with Hatarah, I don't see how it could be applied here, to a Sephardi girl who is married to an Ashkenazi man.
Sat, 11 Apr I am away from home for Pesach so would appreciate if someone might look there as I recall, perhaps incorrectly, that there is some minhag that Ashkenazim hold of that he says Sephardim may drop without hatara. I would like to remind everyone that you may reduce the volume of mail to one message a day consisting of a digest of all the past 24 hours worth of messages by sending the following message to listproc shamash.
Wed, 15 Apr Tue, 14 Apr I just planted some a few weeks ago, and I haven't been able to figure out if they're considered etz maachal w. My personal experience with raspberries and blueberries when I was a child, so I don't know how reliable my memory is was similar to the previous posting, but the book of sage advice on pruning which came with the plants said that blueberries also fruit on two year old shoots and that three year old shoots should be removed.
By the way, grapes clearly are chayyav b'orlah even though they are also pruned severely every year. Could the age of the stalk be a red herring?
The shulhan aruch doesn't define what makes something a tree in the context of orlah, only in the context of brachos. Thu, 16 Apr The difference between a grape and a raspberry is that the new stalks on a grape branches come from the trunk. The new stalks of a raspberry runners come from the ground or very close to itand are therefore categorically different than the new stalks of a grape. Tuesday, April 14, 8: Fri, 17 Apr Bais Tefila Learning Group From: Broyde, Ben Zion Ungar and all who have written about this topic.
As you are all not completely familiar with what is going on in Lubavitch, you have confused unrelated issues. Let me clarify once and for all: There are several at least 20!
The Rebbe was b'Chezkas Mashiach before his histalkus 2. Position 1 should be stressed, promoted and advertised 3. The Rebbe was considered Mashiach before his histalkus 4. The Rebbe has the status of "Vaddai" Mashiach even now.
Position 4 should be stressed, promoted and advertised 6. The Rebbe will stand up through T'chiyas Hameisim and be Mashiach very soon. Position 6 should be stressed within Lubavitch. Position 6 should be promoted and advertised outside of Lubavitch. The Rebbe never really passed away. He ascended to heaven in some way we cannot perceive. He currently has the status of "Yaakov Ovenu lo meis" Position 9 should be stressed, promoted and advertised.
Position 9 has practical implications, i. A "Rebbe" according to chassidus is "atzmus melubash b'guf" One may prey to the Rebbe chas v'sholom The Rebbe is [a] god chas v'sholom The Rebbe is still with us spiritually and still is the source of spiritual influx etc.
We will not have, and are not interested in another Rebbe until Mashiach and even beyond. We can still tern to the Rebbe for brachos and direction. The Rebbe responds to our questions via his seforim Igros.
The Geuloh is definitely quickly approaching, and great efforts should be made to prepare through adding in kiyum mitzvos b'hiddur and limud Hatorah. Position 17 should be stressed, promoted and advertised. The Rebbe is Mashiach Ben Yoseif. One should say "Yechi etc. One Should say "Yechi etc. Now as far as who holds what, Note: There may be a slight margin of error. Some say the Rebbe approved this position. Others believe that he clearly rejected it.
Objectively it can be debated if he actually fulfilled the Rambam's criteria for chezkas Mashiach.

I can see both sides. If anyone is interested I can elaborate. It is not really relevant because it is clear from the Rambam and al pi sevorah that after an histalkus of any sort one looses chezkas Mashiach. This Position was also originated by Rabbi Wolpe.
It was excepted by many Lubavitchers, although not as many as position 1. His reasoning was that since the Geulah may come al pi tevah oni v'rochev al chamor, according to GRA and Ohr Ha'Chaimnatural means must be employed to have him accepted by Klal Yisroel. Yet it took many years until he was finally accepted by Klal Yisroel through a natural progression. This is independent of Position 1. I think the latter three can be proven to be objectively true al pi Torah.
A group of am haratzim hold this view. They are primarily insulated in Crown Heights and Kfar Chabad. Not to be confused with the magazine which beers that name. They number perhaps several hundred. Although it is no real threat [as there is not the slightest indication that this has effected their performance of any mitzvah etc.
Intervention from outside sources is counter-productive, as it only strengthens them. Same as 4, except a much smaller group. They are however very vocal as the Gemarah says: A few are wealthy, and support all their activities. Their main supporter just went bankrupt and ran away with his family, so hopefully we will see less of their stupid ads etc.
This is the position of the majority of Lubavitchers, including a large percentage of Talmidei Chachomim, Rabbonim, Roshei Yeshiva, Shluchim etc. Even though if one has to resort to Techiyas Hameisim there are many excellent candidates besides the Rebbe, there is logic to this position.
A smaller group within 6 perhaps half? There is a bit of logic to this position, although I do not support it. If anyone is interested I can explain it. A much smaller group within 7. I have as yet to receive a clear explanation to their logic, so don't ask me. Although it does not violate any halacha one iota chas v'sholom, however clearly the position of the overwhelming majority of Shluchim is that any promotion of the Rebbe as Mashiach in any form is divisive, counter-productive, and detracts from the main mandate of Chabad to spread Yiddishkait and Chissidus, and thus should be shunned.
This position is held by many though clearly not most of Lubavitchers and is even supported by some though clearly not most of the Talmidei Chachomim in Lubavitch. There are other sources as well. A much smaller group within 9. Supported by a small fringe of am haratzim maybe a hundred or so?
It is a deep expression of "ain od melivado" and a complete rejection, in fact the exact opposite of, avodah zara chas v'sholom. I have never met, spoken to, or confirmed the existence of any Lubavitcher who holds this view. Rabbi Springer's ad in the NYT quoted by Rabbi Keller was a grammatical error, as he is not proficient in the english language.
He did not mean to tern to the Rebbe in prayer chas v'sholom, but rather to turn to the Rebbe to pray for us. A simple phone call to him would have confirmed the above. Although allegedly there are a handful of crazes in E. Yisroel, and one nut-case in Crown Heights. To put it in perspective: Over the past several years a handful of Yeshiva boys in various "Litvesha Yeshivos" were caught doing immoral acts r"l.
If one had an agenda to engage in malicious slander against "Litvesha Yeshivos" one can deceptively claim that there exists a "group" in the above Yeshivos promoting znus r"l.
I do not support this position. This is the view of Isser Zalman Weisberg. He claims it is based on the GRA and he can prove it to any "open-minded" ben Torah.
I am not so sure, but he deserves a chance. Many Lubavichers I don't know what percentage. It means different things to different people. There are other possibilities. If anyone is interested I can try to explain. I hope I have clarified things. What is the b'racha on Pizza? Bangabhasha o shahitya Bengali Language and Literature in Bengali, first published inand History of Bengali Language and Literature in Englishbased on a series of lectures delivered at the University of Calcutta and published in He also produced many other books including an autobiography.
All his life, Sen remained a devoted, tireless researcher of Bengali language and literature. Dinesh Chandra Sen wrote and edited about 55 books in Bangla and twelve books in English in addition to a large number of research articles published in various learned journals. The majority of people in the western areas are Hindus, while in the east Muslims predominate. Although there are strong feeling towards Bengali and Bangladeshi nationalism, broadly speaking the term Bengal designates the Bengali-speaking area.
In most characteristic feature of the Bengali landscape is its vast river system which characterizes the Bengali people and their literature. Among the main rivers the Ganges and the Padma are the two most important and these are referred to in many literary compositions, including the carya poems. Bengal was famous in ancient times for river and sea crafts.
The arts of navigation, boat building and maritime warfare developed because of the many rivers and the long seacoast. Bengal carried on a large sea trade mostly through the ancient seaport of Tamralipta. River and sea voyages are often characterized in Bengali folklore and literature, particularly in the Manasa and Chandi poems composed later than the caryas.
Being situated in the extreme east of India, Bengal served as the connecting land link between the sub-continent, Burma, South China and the Malay Peninsula and Indo-China. Bengal not only acted as intermediary in trade and commerce but also played an important role in the cultural association between the diverse civilizations of South East and Eastern Asia.

There is an affinity between the scripts used on Javanese sculptures and the proto-Bengali alphabets. The influence of ancient Bengal was of Tibet and China. Diverse civilization and cultures met in the Bengal delta. Various races entered India during pre-historic times through the North West of the Indian sub-continent and lived there until they were driven further east.

Bengal continually attracted people from outside. There are many accounts and references which point out that the ancient people of Bengal were different in race, culture and language from the Aryans who compiled the Vedic literature. The original inhabitants of Bengal were non-Aryan. Many linguists and anthropologists believe that the early tribes of Bengal were Dravidian, but belonged to a separate family1 It used to be accepted that the Brahmins and other high castes of Bengal were descended from the Aryan invaders who imposed their culture upon the primitive barbarian tribes of Bengal.
Although we know very little of pre-Aryan Bengali civilization, it is now generally held that the foundations of the agriculture -based village life, which is also believed to be one of the foundations of Indian civilization, were laid by the Nishadas or Austric -speaking peoples of Bengal. Chatterji, the Austric tribes of India belonged to more then one group of the Austro- Asiatic section, i. It may be presumed that Bengal had developed a culture of its own which was non-Vedic and non-Aryan.
The primitive culture became absorbed but it also influenced its adopted religion The rise of the anti-Brahmin and the anti-sacrificial ideas of the Buddhists and the Jains among the eastern people or Bengalis shows that other strong traditions were established before the Brahmins came and that Vedic ideas brought by the Brahmin did not inspire the masses.
Dinesh Chandra Sen, the country was for centuries in open revolt against Hindu orthodoxy. Buddhist and Jain influences were so great that the Hindu code of Manu prohibited all contact of the Hindus with this land; hence Brahminism could not thrive there for many centuries.
With the revival of Hinduism the Sanskrit pundits did not accept works in Bengal were carried away to Nepal and Burma as Buddhism was gradually suppressed in India by the Brahmins. Sanskrit scholars from outside Bengal who brought about a Hindu revival in Bengal abhorred the simple Bengali language. Sen's literary output Along with the proliferation of Sen's literary output, his worldly status had also gone up. Inhe was appointed reader in the Department of Bengali Language and Literature of Calcutta University and was entrusted with the responsibility of building and developing the new faculty.
He was made Ramtanu Lahiri Professor in Calcutta University conferred on him the degree of Doctor of Literature in recognition of his work in and Jagattarini Gold Medal in Sen, today, is truly a man of the past. His almost exclusive identification of Bengali literature with the Hindu heritage, his idealization of many patriarchal and Brahmanical precepts, and his search for a pure Bengali essence bereft of all foreign influence will today arouse the legitimate ire of contemporary critics.
It is not my purpose to discuss Sen as a person. But, for the sake of the record, it should be noted that, like many other intellectuals of his time, Sen was a complex and contradictory human being. This ardently and by his own admission provincial Bengali man loved many English poets and kept a day's fast to express his grief on hearing about the death of Tennyson.
For all his commitment to his own Hindu-Bengali identity, he remained a foremost patron of the Muslim-Bengali poet Jasim Uddin. The inclusion of a poem by Jasim Uddin in the selection of texts for the matriculation examination in Bengali inwhen Hindu-Muslim relations were heading for a new low in Bengal, was directly due to Sen's intervention at the appropriate levels. And his patriarchal sense of the extended family did not stop him from encouraging his daughters-in-law to pursue higher studies.

A poem by a Muslim writer in the Matriculation selections! And that too under the auspices of the University of Calcutta?
A teacher of mine told me a story about this. There was forceful opposition in [the University's] Syndicate to the inclusion of by a student. Apparently, he countered the opposition by saying, "All right, please be patient and just listen to me recite the poem. He read the poem with such wonderful effect that the eyes of many members of the Syndicate were glistening with tears. Kabita, gadya o smriti The poet asserts he gathered material for his plot from actual happenings in his own Faridpur district.
For the friendship of the sannyasi and the insight he gave " him into Hindu culture,J asim Uddin is still grateful. It seems to me his broadmineledness and sympathy for Hindu as well as Moslem tradition are among his best qualities as a writer.
