    great shiur
    The novelty seems only relevant to Agripas, why would the author of the Talmud incorporate this teaching in the Talmud if it's not relevant toanyone (other then Agripas)? Is there perhaps, something that is gleaned from this novelty which would be practically relevant to the nation at large?

    Thank you for the great class, looking fwd to the next one.

    The histrocial tidbits enhance the class v much, helping somewhat to bridge the gap of up to almost 2000yrs (timewise).

    more learning
    thanks Rabbi for another great article.

    Are going to Miami Beach to teach?

    I'm sure Rav Schapiro would like to hear from you if you are.

    Be well and look forward to learning with you.

    ב"ה b"H inyan: the willow does smell


    Shalom, Rabbi, 

    Everything you say here is good and very powerful. Only with one thing there is a problem, which is really none: the willow does indeed have a smell - especially when it is shaken or beaten. Don't you remember the smell of a regular Shul after beating the Arovos? Oy, smells like a dog that has been running hell-bent through a swamp of Arovos. If you have been clutching and shaking the Minim long enough, you can smell the willow even on your paws...excuse me, hands. I think cat. It is kind of a primaeval smell, somehow - simple, powerful and as primitive as musk. It is wild and swampy - a reminder of water, Palgey Mayim. 

    You and your "bible" - oy, oy, Rabbi, oy, oy, oy. 

    This is assimilation. You should think thrice, before you say that. 

    I think of what my mentor rabbi from Chabad would say to something like that. Oy.

    Chag sameach. G'nar tov.

    Be well, and take care.
