Увидел месяц — благослови!


Нашёл статью, подтверждающую моё давнее мнение: что идея "энтузиазма выполнения заповедей" предполагает произнесение благословения на новую луну при первой же возможности (а не ждать минимум три дня или до ближайшего моцей шабата).


Typical Jewish calendars list two particular z’manim for “the first time that one may begin to recite kiddush l’vana (or birkat hal’vana).” The first is referred to as minhag yerushalayim or minhag haperushim, or simply “the three-day minhag,” and the second time, to wait for seven days to pass from the start of the lunar month to recite the blessing, is attributed to the Shulhan Aruch. These two times are calculated as exactly either 72 hours or 168 hours after the average molad of each Hebrew month. These positions do not truly reflect those of our sages, nor of the Rishonim, and nor of the Shulhan Aruch. The usual shul calendars, like the Ittim L’vina calendar and the Tukachinsky calendar, mislead the public with regards to when the earliest time for saying the blessing really is. The issue is based on a number of fallacious calculations, including misapplying a chumra of the Pri M’gadim regarding an opinion of the Rema to an opinion of the Shulhan Aruch, and assuming that the Shulhan Aruch completely dismissed the halacha as described by the Talmud in favor of a later, kabbalistic opinion. The purpose of this article is to argue for a reevaluation as to how the typical calendars present these issues to the laymen and to call for a more accurate presentation of the z’manim as understood by Rishonim like Maimonides.

Новые должности

Легализация марихуаны в Массачусеттсе в 2016 (реально раскрутить аппарат розничной торговли заняло до июля 2018 — жернова штата мелют медленно) привело к появлению новых рабочих специализаций:

Marijuana Joints Roller — крутильщик марихуановых самокруток
Overnight Marijuana Packaging Associate — ночной упаковщик марихуаны, работа с 11 вечера до 6 утра

Ну и, естественно, специалист по обслуживанию клиентов с охранной функцией.
