Who made up this rule? won't even grace it with calling it 'halacha'.
What about your oven or sink or stove top?How about your counters? your silverware?
Chuchem #1 wants to keep eating treif b'shot nefesh
The etc. of #4 is a major nekuda.A lot of people hang their hat on Rabbi Heinemann's questionable leniency that you can kasher a plastic microwave by cooking water far a por minut. It's not so poshut to eat in yenem's home when you don't hold of kashering plastic. And even if you do kasher plastic, who says this water trick is kebolo kach polto?
From a practicality point of view the Rabbi has a valid point and more likely to happen.Workers want something quick where they wont be detected. True,it might not be a Halacha (I would still ask a Rov) but this happens all the time.Regarding a stove or silverware. It is easily detectable if someone comes in unannounced. Could it happen ? Yes,but not as much as a microwave where its quick and cant tell if anything was done.The Rabbi means only good,dont be so quick to shoot him down all the time.
rabbi heinemann does not allow kashering plasticall the major hashgachos allow kashering the microwave since its not a kli roshon
Maybe it's not kli rishon only when following the manufacturer recommended practice of covering the food when nuking it. How many people always cover the food?So maybe Rav Heinemann thinks he can claim he is against kashering plastic by making a questionable distinction that a microwave is not begeder kashering.Star K does publicly insinuate that things that R' Moishe was mesupek if you can kasher, like Teflon, is basically hamaykil tavo alav beracha
Very nogaya for mayser kessafim as well as the viability of many tzedaka organizations going forward.There is much negotiating lately between Obama & Republicans on eliminating or drastically limiting tax deductions for charitable donations. Right Wing Conservatives who are against touching this deduction & are against other Obama intentions have lost their power in a struggle where center leaning Republicans have taken control of the Republican Party and want to cave in to Obama so that the public does not blame them for anything the next time they come up for re-election. This is probably the reason why Conservative Senator Jim DeMint announced this morning he is quitting the Senate effective in 3 weeks.The NY Times had a major article yesterday on the tzedaka tax deductions & mentioned that many organizations have swooped into Washington to twist the arms of Obama's inner circle to leave the deduction alone. The paper mentioned that one Obama stooge who is being surrounded is Obama Chief of Staff Jacob Lew. Lew is a Left Wing Modern Orthodox Liberal who grew up davening at a Queens Vaad shul in Forest Hills. The Times quotes unnamed tzedaka organization officials describing Lew as not giving any ground with the talking point that Obama's Socialist programs have to be funded from somewhere, so if it comes down to even tzedaka money, then so be it. Lew has previously been profiled by the Times as a fierce Lefty who drives Republicans insane during negotiations because he refuses to budge an inch while being moser nefesh for Obama's Socialism.
Jacob Lew is not the only modern orthodox lefty in the Obama administration. Rahmbo Emmanuel davens by Asher Lopatin, who is likely the most radical left rabbi in the OU network. Emmanuel is allowed to daven in that OU shul and receive aliyos & kibudim despite that his wife is l'halacha a shiksa and his children are goyim. Lopatin claims its "none of my business who he's married to". Lopatin was also mattir Rahmbo making phone calls on Rosh Hashana for economic matters which he poskened is "pikuach nefesh" for "national security". Lopatin bases his "psak" on the premise that his rebbe Rabbi J.B. Soloveitchik at YU was "machmir altz shitas Brisk of pikuach nefesh"Rahmbo's brother Ari Emmanuel is the chief architect of Obama's health care plan and the originator of the immoral idea that old & terminally ill people should not be treated, as a way to save money for other socialist programs.The father of Rahmbo & Ari, who like them is Israeli, but unlike them is not a yored, is so disgusted that he does not speak to either of his sons as reported in the newspapers.And then there is OU's Menachem Genack's cousin, Julius Genachowski, who was appointed as Chairman of the FCC. Obama the Dictator has been threatening to use the FCC to shut down conservative viewpoints on broadcast radio. (Did the Genack branch of the family have their surname shortened by an INS officer at Ellis Island or did Rabbi Genack shorten it in the style of Conservative rabbis who prefer less Jewishy last names?) Genachowski was raised in a shul on the Queens-Nassau border whose rabbi is Pesach Lerner's brother and a former Vice President of the Queens Vaad.Maybe the Queens Vaad troll who often spreads his VHQ propaganda on this blog can remind us again how proud he is that the Queens Vaad has a chinuch division overseeing all the Jewish schools in the area. Very interesting track record that they produce these kinds of luminaries masquerading as orthodox Jews who are the brains behind the Marxist sonei Torah veYisroel Obama Administration.
