Simmer down folks. You're all going to be ok. It does not have to be so painful for you all to hear what the Torah says about any particular subject. I'm not telling anybody what to do, I'm just giving a Torah view.

If you're feeling attacked, or defensive - well that's your nashama speaking with you, not some guy on the intranet called TFF. I'm just a sheliach (agent) who was placed in your lives by Hashem. Must be there's something for each of you to learn from me. I'm trying to learn from all of you - must be there's a reason for me too that ours paths have crossed at this particular time.

Would any of you mind translating "kol tuv" for me?

Ahhhh another CORRECT translation is needed: performs an act of legal significance for the benefit of others.


Furthermore shaliach may only be appointed for a mitzvah or other halakhic Jewish legal affairs that he or she is obligated in. So when did we appoint you?

Probably. You're showing me all the good reasons one should stay far away from fundamentalism.

Keep in mind, per his words, the statement:

I'm just a sheliach (agent) who was placed in your lives by Hashem.

translates to:

I'm just a person who was appointed for a mitzvah or other halakhic Jewish legal affairs that he is obligated in who was placed in your lives by G_d.

And here is a simple link that explains its usage:

Shaliah - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Which per the link it states a Shaliah is a person sent by another person. In which he replaced the other person with G_d. Now that we know what the word entails than one can answer the question.


My answer is:

Have any if you heard if the concept of hashgacha pratis? It's the classic Jewish idea that nothing in life is chance, and we are meant to find meaning in every single occurrence in our lives, no matter how minute.

Translation again:
hashgacha pratis=Divine providence

The correct quote is "kara mei Hashem" which means "It happened from G-d," meaning that the world is not run by random forces without rhyme or reason, but that G-d`s guiding Hand is constantly with us.

Now back to the thread.....

Remember when your extended relatives were making you cranky a long time ago? I told you this. I didn't know the Hebrew words, though.
