Polish Jewish Property and "Operation: Last Chance
HaRav Shach zt"l had a standard approach to evaluating new
suggestions: "Whenever we raised new ideas . . . he would

always followed the same path: First, was there any prospect
of harm arising in the future from what was being proposed?
For What Careers Should Jewish Girls Study?
I want to comment on a matter that needs constant

Rosh Chodesh: A Yom Tov -- But Why?
A Day of Celebration
By HaRav Tzvi Weisfish
In several places in Shas we find Rosh Chodesh referred
to as a mo'eid, an appointed time, the general term
used for all the Yomim Tovim. The gemora (Taanis
29) derives this from the posuk (Eichoh 1:15), "He
has declared a mo'eid against me, to break my youths,"
the subject of this declaration having been an extra day of
Rosh Chodesh Av. Rashi (at the end of Taanis 17) cites
this as the source for the gemora's calling Rosh
Chodesh a Yom Tov.
What is REALLY Happening?
An accident at the intersection. Two cars have collided and
are stuck. Thank G-d there are no casualties, though some of
the passengers were slightly injured and are being treated.
The cars were extensively damaged, however; they are deeply
dented and there is glass all over the asphalt.

Politica: "Prime Minister" Omri Sharon
Who says Ariel Sharon is the prime minister? And if he is,

and his partner has seniority. The partner's name is Omri
Sharon, who just so happens to be Ariel Sharon's son.
