Do you go ahead and cancel your fast, climb into bed and try to ride it out? Do you ask your doctor if you are well enough to fast? Or do you take some other approach?
Oooooooooooooooo another test!


One who has no strength to pray on Yom Kippur need not be upset. The chazzan's prayers cover for all those who cannot pray due to circumstances that are beyond their control. Thus in case of a medical emergency, or even if there is any question whether the condition is a medical emergency or not, one should be given food or medicine immediately.

Well this is very simple, I would poke my girlfriend awake and have her diagnose me to determine whether I go to the ER that instant (this would be most likely, because fevers in adults are VERY dangerous unlike children) or just sit in bed the rest of the day.

Here's one of his video's and you decide if he's really worth taking advice from.

That was great. I actually lasted 5 minutes before I was laughing too hard at his watch analogy and had to shut it off.

I have great respect for my rabbi (and most rabbis in general). It's the ones who are essentially leading cults trying to brainwash people and covering up horrible scandals that I don't have any respect for.

Not true in my shuls. You've had a lifetime of exposure to Jewish people, though, but you know I had to pipe up on this one.

We have no disdain for REAL Rav's (Rabbi's). We only have disdain for people who act like Rav's in this forum yet don't have the education to be one.
