Pecking like a Pigeon + 2 more items

Questions are good. They show you’re alive and thinking. But you’re not going to get the full picture of Torah by pecking like a pigeon at crumbs on the sidewalk.

The only way to comprehend what Torah is saying is with a consistent schedule of study and a good teacher. ~ The Lubavitcher Rebbe zt”l

I want to let you all know that when I posted that link about the Kosher Switch 2 weeks ago, it was the day they launched and before the controversy over it began.  Since then, many respected rabbis have spoken out against it.  Therefore, please consult your Rav as to whether it is permitted for use on shabbos or not before you purchase or use it.  In the meantime, here is an excellent shiur, recorded almost 4 years ago, by Rabbi Aryeh Leibowitz in which he discusses all the halachic issues with the Kosher Switch.

Second, last month many of you started learning Mishna Berurah Yomi either on your own or with Rabbi Aaron Glatt’s 15 minute shiur on the OU website.  Now, there is a new daily email following the same cycle which is really well done.  It contains a brief overview of that day’s page of the Mishna Berurah, as well as a brief review of the previous day’s learning and a preview of the next day’s.  It is embedded right in the email and even contains pictures.  I highly recommend you try it out as anyone who signs up right now will receive the subscription absolutely free.  Signing up takes about 5 seconds.  Click here.
