Interesting Posts and Articles #297

Tznius cult members
  1. This week's Haveil Havalim hosted as Esser Agaroth.
    .
  2. Today there is an 'inyan' of saying parashat Hamon, this Tuesday of parshat Beshalach. See why I am somewhat flippant about this fad.
    .
  3. DovBear feels that choosing the more fantastic of two explanations of Rashi disrespects Rashi, since it discards Rashi's intent. I agree, but can see how people who have very different approaches to understanding Rashi don't see this, such that it is not necessarily disrespect.
    .
  4. Menachem Mendel notes some interesting SMS teshuvot, on women, tefillin, and angels.
    .
  5. A Mother In Israel about a tznius cult in Beit Shemesh.
    .
  6. At Hirhurim, a follow-up post in defense of mezonot rolls. See the earlier Hirhurim post here, and my brief discussion of it here.
    .
  7. Mystical Paths reports on the Tzedakka ATM:
    Very cute, but a very misguided idea, which highlights how this Vaad HaRabbanim charity has segulah-ized tzedaka. Anyway, see Emes veEmunah on this.
    .
  8. Also at Emes veEmunah, Rabbi Maryles considers the impact of blogging to his family.
    .
  9. Here on parshablog, a liver is the heart of Pharaoh, and discussions of the Zohar's antiquity based on the appearance of Rabbi Abba and Rabbi Yesa.
