    Marriage to Moabite women
    B'H I really, really enjoyed this class! I love the implications on parenting & education (Orpa passing on her issues to the next generations).


    I am wondering how the sons of Elimelech married Rus & Orpa in the first place. How did they marry Moabite women? Thanks!

    Kisser ?
    One of the best and most fascinating Shiurs I'll ever hear.

    And on a personal note; being a Noahide, of typcal mixed Amsterdam blood, with a sister that converted and all that. I should watch it not becoming a kisser. But now that i am aware of that. I still don't know about converting but I should become a Noahide of utmost censerity and modesty.

    Inspired
    I wanted to express my sincere appreciation for last night’s new endeavor, “Rus”. Just thinking about this Shavuos appropriate topic is enough for me to hug you, but then to bring to fruition your concept in such a creative, dynamic, enlightening format leaves me speechless in expressing my thanks. since you started on Monday nights, I have been a constant participator. My stroke has horrific repercussions in demoralizing and confusing ways.

    I look forward to Monday nights especially as a lift up in my week. I must admit though that your recent re-broadcasting of previous shiurim has left me less excited. I still gain and am inspired by the repeated Parsha Shiurim, making my Shabbos experience better, but the Shiur last night on Ruth, reminded me of those “first time around” Chiddushim feelings I used to get every Monday night… Chazak U’Boruch cubed! Ok, I’m on a roll.

    For that matter, the entire Yeshiva.Net is Tremendously successful. I still create Audio CDs of both your Shiur and the Tuesday night Shiur given by Rabbi Yossi Paltiel. I go to Shul Wednesday nights for our Rav,Rabbi Boruch Lesches’ Shiur on Samach Vav[I plan on checking out Rabbi Braun]. I then give out the CDs. I have loyal “customers”, anxious to receive a Good Vort and something far better to listen to in their cars, than news radio. I have also had requests to create batches of your Shiurim from people traveling or that have long daily commutes.

    I am a Japanese convert-wanna-be. I fully understand the void of Arpah. If Yiddish Kait is taken from me, Chas Veshalom (G-d forbid), I would not get up from my bed, ever.

    Naomi/Ruth
    Re: Rashi's commentary. How could Naomi warn Ruth about the prohibition of yichud if there was no prohibition until the time of Dovid HaMelech? See Sanhadrin 22a.

      Re: Naomi/Ruth
      Dear Reb Chaim Aaron,

      Your question is a good one. I have not seen it in sefarim, but i will share my thoughts on the matter.

      As the Talmud explains there, and see also Rambam laws of Isurei Biah chapter 22, David and his Bes Din initiated the prohibition of yechud with a penuyah, with a single unmarried woman. Even earlier there was a prohibition against yechud with a married woman. This probably is what Naomi shared with Ruth.

      Even though Ruth was not married at the time, she was a penuyah, yet Naomi, as we know, wanted her to soon marry (and even arranged the marriage to some extent), hence she explained to her the laws of Yechud.

    Rabbi Jacobson, I predicted (a bit in jest) that you wouldn't rest until you created a chassidic university online.

    Clearly and fortunately, you were very serious and determined about this project. יישר כוחך and mazel tov on your being the first Yeshiva Dean in cyberspace.I'm proud to be enrolled in this "ivy league" university of Chassidus. On top of all this, I didn't even have to pass an entrance exam or write an exam.

    Thank you for your vision and tenacity and once again I express tremendous appreciation to Dovid and Eda Schottenstein.
