Welcome to my blog.
I have started this blog to help readers navigate their way back to sanity in Orthodox Judaism.
Have you ever wondered why Mom/Dad and Grandma/Grandpa never checked vegetables and fruits the way your (or anyone else's) Rabbi instructed you?
Did you ever see a shiur announced on the subject of kashering your dental fillings for Pesach and wince at the very thought?
Did anyone ever tell you that you are absolved of responsibility for your actions beyond asking a competent Rav a she'eila and following whatever he tells you?
Did you ever wonder how the Rambam's 13 principles can possibly be the last word on Jewish theology when so many people around you ask the angels to bless them on Friday nights?
Have you ever heard someone say that Halakha never changes and wonder how that same person sends his daughter to a school that teaches chumash ... which is prohibited by the Shulhan Arukh?
The purpose of this blog is to help readers navigate their way through Rabbinic literature and discover things their Rabbi may never have told them.
The author of this blog will rarely take his own positions, but will reference readers to sources they may never otherwise have seen.
