New Sefer!

One of the Ohr Somayach alumni who was a ben bayis by us has published my "collected [English] writings." They are available for free download or purchase at:


http://www.lulu.com/reuven


(reuven's Storefront - Lulu.com)


An excerpt from the site:


" Bigdeh Shesh (Hardcover)

(From the back cover) "Think, Ask, Internalize!" This title of one of the many gems within this volume sums up the writings of Rabbi Yosef Gavriel Bechhofer. Whether it’s Chassidus vs. Misnagdus, Talmud Yerushalmi, Eruvin, Medical Ethics, History, Biographies, or any number of Hashkafic topics, the Bigdeh Shesh never ceases to bring up something new, something interesting, and most importantly, something to think about! "


Please note that neither he nor I make any money off the book - only lulu.com does.

  3. I think there's a difference between tzora'as as a disease, which can be noheg b'kol zman u'b'kol makom, and tzora'as as a tumah, which is only in EY u'b'zman ha'bayis.
