Shabbat Parashat B'haalotcha| 5771
Beha'alotcha | 9 Sivan 5771 | 6/11/2011
The commandment that opens our parasha has a special significance beyond its practical information as part of the service of the Mishkan: “Speak to Aharon and tell him: ‘When you make the lights go up, opposite the menorah should the seven lights give light’” (Bamidbar 8:2).
A friend asked me to buy her a food product without a hechsher. May I do so?
Woe unto the house that turnips pass through it. Is that so? Didn’t Rava say to his assistant: “If you see turnips in the market, do not ask what we will eat together with bread” [in other words, “Certainly buy the turnips”]? Abayei said: [the problem is] without meat. Rava said: [the problem is] without wine… Shmuel said: [the problem is] without wood
A husband (=def) sued in the Rabbinical Court for divorce and linked to it a request of litigation on property matters. In the midst of the litigation, his wife (=pl) requested a tzav ikul (sequestration of def’s property) in order to ensure her rights. Def claims that since he is the plaintiff in the proceedings before beit din, it is he not she who can request ikul by beit din. Def claims that ikul is a supplementary decree for the plaintiff who officially opened the proceedings.
