  1. Torah would allow Crocs since they are not going to get in the way of true sadness unless you perhaps break a strap.

  2. HOW ABOUT TRYING TO FEEL WHAT WE WE DO NOT HAVE RATHER THAN WORRYING ABOUT CROCS–BIZMAN HABAYIS HATZIS MERATZEH !!!

  3. Very sharp and engaging, and I understood him due to my broad background, but for the wider olam it would have been nicer to slow down, speak clearly and use one language instead of five. I don’t recall the exact context, but I once heard an odom gadol comment with exasperation/derision “the whole world is not a yeshiva!”

  4. 3 points 1)in radin on shabbos chazon the people came into shul with their boots and clothes full of mud from the fields (heard from Rabbi ym Zaks
    2) according to Rav elyashiv (heard from Rav Yitzchok Berkovitz and Rav Nochum Eichenstein) american grape juice isn’t an hagafen rather a shehakol and isn’t good for kiddush
    3)sefer hayuchsin points out that the entire 10 martyrs isn’t accurate as some of the tannaim lived in different times Raban Shimon ben Gamliel, the first one, was killed on the day of the Churban, and R. Akiva almost eighty years after him, and the last ones were at the time Beitar was conquered, seventy-three years after the Churban also see avodaZarah 17b 18a Berachos 61b it seems the story was embellished so there is no proof or even question about vayechulu since its from the time of the geonim
