  1. #4,
    I see your logic, once the husband gave $ for pidyon shvuyim he is “Motzie” his wife and therefore she is “Potur” from the “Obligation” to give more $ for pidyon shvuyim.
    Hmmmm, I guess it follows, once you give a guest who is eating at your home the “Shiur” of a seudah, you are “Yoitzie” and are “Patur” from the obligation to give him/her any more food.

  2. wow what a Kidish Hashem only in Lakewood do you see such chsed for 1 Jew May Hashem answer all the Tefillos for Reb Sholom.
    IKs there anyway to get a copy of the speeches.

  3. es iz nisht aza klutz kashe since its the husbands money even if his wiffe is the one who earned it, he is the one with the chiyuv tzedaka oib azoi if he already gave tzedaka than by his wiffe giving its only moisif on his chiyuv but does she have a right to give his money if he was already yoitze??

  4. if the women would have been at the event with their husbands as was originaly planned do you think they would each give their own check?

  5. I’m very sure that the wives that wrote checks had first asked their husbands if they should give (again) and also how much to give. Not to mention I’m sure their were some unmarried girls that were there that wrote checks.

  6. According to Rabbi Shapiro every “kopeckle” helps, so I gave a few dollars I had in my pocketbook. My husband had already given a much larger amt., But, he didn’t mind and B”H all the “kopeckles” added up.

  7. i think both mr & mrs rubashkin need chizuk, so its appropaite we hold two events & all have the z’chus of being part of this kidush hashem
