The notebooks of Latzar Long

Click on the title for the original.

What is the halacha? Again and again and again - what is the halacha? Shun wishful thinking, ignore obscure cabala, forget 'a good segula', avoid blogs, care not what the minhag Yerushalmi is, never mind the unguessable future 'daas toirah' - what is the halacha , and is it d'oraita, d'rabbanan or minhag? You pilot always towards Olam Haba; halacha is your only chance. What is the halacha?

The Long Non-Vidui

This may be humor (or at least irony) but it certainly isn't simcha.
So I'm publishing it on erev Rosh Chodosh Adar, which is to be celebrated this year as a Yom Kippur katan.

Not everything that is thought should be spoken aloud
Not everything that is spoken should be written down
Not everything that is written should be published
Not everything that is published should be read
Not everything that is read should be believed
Not everything that is believed should be acted upon
Not everything that is acted upon should be admitted to aloud

If we perform this whole cycle once, let us lather, rinse, and repeat
