Koirach 2018: The First Earthquake?

Raboyseyee and Ladies: The First Earthquake?   Many years back, while still valgering in yeshiva, the Rebbe tried convincing the future Oisvorfer and a few dozen others that he had a magic shteken (staff) if you chap, which nebech he did.  Ober in reality, magical shtekins appear only in the heylige Toirah:  Moishe Rabaynu had […]

Shelach 2018 – Spygate in Torah Times & Tzitzis Save the Day

Raboyseyee and Ladies: Spygate in Torah Times & Tzitzis Save the Day This coming Tuesday will correspond to the 29th day of Sivan. What the hec is Sivan and what happened on the 29th day?  Sadly, a number of the Oisvorfer’s readers do not know that the Yiddin mark their holidays, birthdays, and all else, […]

Bihaloischo 2018: Tifilin, Jesus, Trump & Trumpets

Raboyseyee and Ladies:   Tifilin, Jesus, Trump, & Trumpets   The entire country is busy with Trump.  Some love him, others, not so much.

Bamidbar / Shovuois 2018: Seminal Events

Raboyseyee and Ladies, Seminal Events:   Shoin: having recited chazak three times as we ended last week’s parsha, hopefully you’re all stronger and in better shape to take on Sefer Bamidbar and lommer schnel unfangin (let’s quickly begin). The emes is that you’ll need strength just to stay awake because a more boring parsha is […]

Behar Bichukoisai 2018: Torah Sanctioned Loopholes

Raboyseyee and Ladies: Torah Sanctioned Loopholes   First the good news: Behar is a tiny parsha, only 57 pisukim (5th shortest) barely enough time to engage in a decent conversation with your chaver. It ranks 8th in number of mitzvois, not too shabby for a tiny parsha. Behar is the 32nd of 54 parshas and next to last […]

Emor 2018: The Proper Brocho (Blessing) on Matzo

Raboyseyee and Ladies: The Proper Brocho (Blessing) on Matzo Following two consecutive double headers, welcome to Emor, a single parsha we’ll learn this week. Ober settle in: it’s a biggie and chock full of mitzvois, mamish. In fact, just so that you can sit at the shabbis tish and say something intelligent, you should know that […]
