    riddles -4 years ago

    Riddle answers

    I think that Hashem changed the nature of the water so that the ice would cover the water and insulate it, so the fish could live.

    ice is lighter than water 2.176=22 times 8.22=number of letters in the alef bais.

    למה אין ברכה על מוזיקה? למה אין ברכה על טיפוס בהרים? או על הליכה לבריכה ולמרחץ?

    אין שהחיינו על ספירה? כמו שיש בחנוכה וכו'. וגם לא בפעם הא' של תפילין.

    ין מברכין על עשיית תפילין (ושופר וציצית מגילה ומעקה)-

    1-דעושין אחד לכמה שנים ואין בזה זמן קבוע כמו בנין סוכה(משנה ברורה ס׳ כב)

    2-תפילין כספרים ואין הנאה דמצות לאו ליהנות נתנו(תניא בסידור)

    3-לפי התוספתא ברכות פ״ו הט״ו הקונה תפילין צריך לברך שהחינו

    אין מברכין על ספירת העומר שהחינו-

    1-כנ״ל שמברכים רק על דבר של הנאה/שמחה משא״כ בספירת העומר אין בה שמחה והנאה, אלא נצטווינו בה כדי לזכור את עגמת נפשנו על חורבן בית המקדש שנצטווינו בו בהקרבת קרבנות, וביניהם הקרבת קרבן העומר (בעל המאור פסחים כח א מדפי הרי"ף. הובא בר"ן שם ד"ה וכתוב)

    2-ספירה אינו אלא הכנה לקבלת התורה(אבודרהם)

    3-ספירה בזה״ז דרבנן(בעל המאור פסחים כח)

    4-מצוות ספירת העומר בכל ארבעים ותשעה ימי הספירה, היא מצוה אחת מתמשכת שמסתיימת רק ביום האחרון של ספירת העומר. לפיכך אי אפשר לברך 'שהחיינו' ביום הראשון של הספירה, כיון שהספירה של היום הראשון היא רק חלק מהמצוה, ומברכים רק לפני קיום כל המצוה, ולא לפני קיום חלק ממנה (רבינו ירוחם )

    5-הספירה תלוי בזמן אשר נקבע בו חג הפסח, ומשום כך יוצאים בברכת הזמן שהחיינו שמברכים בקידוש ליל יום חג הפסח. (שבלי הלקט )

    קיט אבן עזרא

    1-what would happen if water doesn't become less dense at 4° ,the surface sheet of ice of ocean would lower to bottom and next layer as well etc. until entire ocean would be Ice that would kill entire aquatic life and ocean species and coral reefs and plants.

    Furthermore, ice expands from water additional 10% ,and since world is 72% water ,if oceans become Ice it will expand to 79.2% of world ,that's 7.2% of world would get wiped out  by this expanding Ice.

    2-chapter 119 posuk 122 ערוב עבדך לטוב אל  יעשקוני זדים because David hamelech didn't compose this posuk(ibn Ezra)

    Hi Rabbi Jacobson

    I am contacting you from EY we enjoy your lessons very much and want to say thank you

    the answer of the riddle about shechiyonu

    1) tefilin is not a mitzvah that comes from time to time

    2) sefirah is a remembrance of the sefirah in the time of the beis hamikdosh therefore we don't recite a shechiyonu on something which has a sad memory

    some say that the berocheh made on the night of pesach continues into sefirah

    3) only food and scent which enter our body are obligated to make brochah on here pleasure however there are berochos that we make on the beauty of Hashems world as a shvach like blossoms, the sea and big mountains

    The beni yisoscor writes that one could make a shehakol on a food and have in mind the pleasure that he is going to encounter even though chazal did not obligate him

    questions from children

    To Rabbi YY.. Question. Why when you had the QandA in Yiddish, you wore a suit, and when English, you took it of.

    אונזערע טאטע, האט צוגעגליכן די אלע וואס לויפן אין מקוה און דאווענען מיט מנין אין די יעצטיגע צייטן, אז ווען זיי וואלטן ווען געווען אין די צייטן פון די בית המקדש, וואלטן זיי געווען צדוקים און בייתוסים, זיי וואלטן געבלאזן שופר און געשאקלט לולב אום ראש השנה אדער סוכות וואס געפאלט אום שבת.

    איז דאס טאקע די בליק וואס די ערליכע יודן האבן געהאט אויף די צדוקים און בייתוסים אלס אובער-—פרומע???

    himon Bichler in Eretz Yisroel is very sad. He is one of 18 children. He just became a Bar Mitzvah.But he couldnt have a party. Maybe children would like to send him a gift and Mazal Tov greeting. Please send to Shimon Bichler Baba Sali Street 11 At. # 4 Beitar Eilite, Israel It would make him so happy. Thank you

    why does hashem give us a choice if he knows what we are going 2 do???!!?!

    I would like to appear live at this event

    I want to learn more during caronavirus ?

    Hi! My name is chaya. Why do we call the תורה a עול and make it sound like a burden when really it's the greatest privilege? Thank you!

    Hi Rabbi Jacobson. I am struggling with severe side effects from Carona, since March 25. Its so hard to stay strong when Im too weak to talk or move around. I nd chizuk. I dnt knw wat to hold onto anymore. Tamar

    how do i approch a situation at home when me and my father and not getting along well. i feel like he is always looking out to catch me doing something wich isnt good. hes always pointing things out telling me im doing wrong. and i feel like diffrent chumros and הרגשים that are important to him he trys to enforce them on me to. i want to talk to him and explain that im 19 and old enough to make my own decision on how i want to live my life according to the way i was taught and understand but i am scared to confront him out of fear that i developt growing up. i want to feel comfortable at home with my parents with my family and be able to speak up for myself and explain whats bothering me without being afraid

    If hashem knows what were going to choose why do we have to choose or how do we have free will? Thank u

    A lubavitcher chusid was giving me an aitzah to learn tanya but this is not in line w my hashkafos what should i do

    hi my name is Ruchy Mermelstein from monsey. my question is if hashem knows what were going to choose why do we have to choose and how do we have free will?thank you so much! i love your shiurim!

     how do I figure out my purpose in this world? (betzalel teich

    why are there so many children, people who think it's about punishment as opposed to making yourself better? where do they get these ideas from?

    Hi! My name is Chaya. Why do we call the תורה a עול and make it sound like a burden when really it's the greatest privilege? Thank you!

    Questions from various children

    How does Hashem see us without eyes and how does he live

    why are ladies not obligated  to Daven?

    How do we know what our mission is in the world there is so much torah to learn and so many different mitzvos to do. it can get overwhelming. what should we focus on.

    what do you say to Reopening Anerica? Is it too soon? Some say yes. Some say no. Who are we to believe? I understand the economic perspective, but aren't lives more important?

    Is a draft in isreal for every citizen a good thing? Is this the jewish custom as the jews were soldiers when they went into isreal the first time, 2993 years ago?

    I don't really have a connection with hashem so I stopped davening because I don't see a point to. Can you tell me why its so important to daven.

    Is God just as a woman as he is a man?

    Hashem is the Mekor of pity and he feeds all creatures with mercy, I'm sure he wants all of us to do the same. Why did he create the world that big animals eat the smaller ones so brutally w/o mercy, why didn't he put into nature a more polite way of feeding them?

    A few days ago in chitas it said a goy can bring a Korban outside the beis hamikdosh but a goy doesn't believe in hashem so how can he bring a korbon?

    hi Rabbi Jacobson I hope you can help ,me I have some kind of an issue with my sis as in everything she does I go mad. its not even as though I am jealous any suggestions I am m sure will be helpful thank you

    Hi rabbi Jacobson I struggle with a lot bad thoughts, thoughts of kefira- heresy. I know it's all foolish but sometimes i feel the yetzer hara has me in a tight grip and I can't get out. I'm a good person who only wants to serve hashem with pure thoughts. Can u please give me some advice on this matter?

    Some times I really feel stressed about the situation what would you advice to do ? Pinny gefen London age 9

    I would like to know why we make a fire on lag buomer

    Hi Thank you for such an amzaing program. Here in england we have something called a Lag b'omer outing, not sure if you hav eit in the states but i wanted to know what is the reason behind this? Thank you

    Thank you for your time

    Looking forwards for your response

    Rabbi jacobson, did hashem create this virus because he wants us to say more tehilim?

    Rabbi Mendel Kessin for 30 years. His material (largely based in Ramchal's teachings) in his"Current Events" shiurim are a nice adjunct to Rabbi YY's extraordinary & beautiful insights. He recently came out boldly to say our current POTUS is a reincarnation of Marcus Aurelius... Just FYI, may be something to look into...?!

    Tefillin - we don't say shehecheyanu because, while it is a great mitzvah, it comes at the cost of a cow's life. Sefirah - shehecheyanu may have originally been recited, but now we don't say shehecheyanu during sefirah time because it's a mourning period. Bracha on music (and other things) - we don't make a bracha on things that are not universally enjoyed.

    the riddle with ice

    The riddle of the water in avodas Hashem.

    Even if it seems like according to nature your situation or mindset can’t change and things are just getting worse and 'colder' in life or ones avodas Hashem. don’t give up hope because when one is so cold-that itself can bring about within them a change that actually makes them float. And ride way above where they ever were before. Through falling so low it brings them to heights, realizations and passions that one may never have been able to achieve before.

    We are learning about Birchas Yaakov. My teacher said that because of what Reuvain did, Yaakov took the b'chora away from him and gave it to Yosef. What did Yosef actually get, since he gave the kehuna to Lavie and the malchus to Yehuda, which should have gone to the B'chor.
