Shulchan Aruch yes, but suits?! They should dress in a dignified manner. Throughout my schooling, my teachers did not wear suits. They wore skirts and tops.

Thank you Rabbi Jacobson

I look forward to your weekly webcast and I try to take in and apply the lessons in my life because everything one sees and hears has a lesson in avodas hashem as the baal shem tov taught! Thank you

Please clarify

I thoroughly enjoy learning from Rabbi Jacobson’s talks and disagree with the comment #4 that it should not be publicized. He was speaking in general and there are different levels of infidelity, perhaps some just emotionally based. But I find it hard to believe that a Rav would say a couple must divorce if the women is unfaithful. That does not sound believable or correct. Could Rabbi Jacobson please hopefully clarify that those commentators are wrong? Thank you!

good point

Teachers should have a dress code.
They should be obligated to wear Shaitels
And SUITS.
A policeman has a uniform, a nurse has a uniform
A teacher in a Chabad School where thew girls
See her for many hours Must conform to the
Shulchan oruch!
I work very hard that my daughters
Should dress properly.
They tell me that they dress Better then
Their teachers.
In Saver the women teachers vs.not

It was not made clear on the audio that his whole premise (of rebuilding the relationship) only refers to a case where the husband did wrong. This is not a criticism of Rabbi Jacobson but it is crucial to make this clear. I hope he does so.

Reconciliation halachicly permissable?

If the wife remarries, she is not allowed to her prior husband. That much is clear- So if she is unfaithful wouldn’t it be the same? I am not a Rabbi and I may be wrong. But this is an important issue, so if that’s the case, it should be stated clearly on the next program!

Rabbi Jacobson was replying to a letter about a husband who followed his yetzer hara, not the wife.

Rabbi Jacobson, yasher koach for a wonderful program. You are filling a real void in the community by dealing with all these varied issues head on in an honest, open and al pi chassisus way.
I am learning so much and am so grateful. May you go meichoyil el choyil.

ta'a bidvar mishna?

I really appreciate these insightful, articulate, and enlightening classes (as I’ve commented on previous classes).

A small critique of the conclusion of this class: A woman who is unfaithful is forbidden to live with her husband – forgiveness doesn’t help. They must divorce.

(The mishna – see Sotah 28b – and the SH”A cited there in the Ner Mitzva)

I think it is critical to point that out.

Thank you. . But. ..

They say don’t be so open minded that your brain falls out. . Well here I would say don’t be so open to discuss anything that is up for discussion in a very open way. .. It may need to be done in a eidel and discreet way. . Otherwise if discussed in a public forum it gives it a certain sense of legitimacy and norm o and it removes the gravity and severity from this very sensitive and grave issue. While I’m not implying to totally not discuss it but to be more eidel and discreet and possibly telling… Read more »

I was waiting for Rabbi Jacobson to give this advice

Infidelity
May 11, 2014 11:49 pm

Does not the laws of Sotah apply today? That if there was infidelity they are NOT allowed to be together again? If they are not allowed how can there be reconciliation and if they do not apply… Why not?

SCHOOL INCONSISTANCIES

RABBI HODAKOVS ONCE GAVE THIS ADVICE TO A PARENT THAT CAME TO HIM WITH A PROBLEM IN SCHOOL.
THERE IS POWER IN NUMBERS.
GET AS MANY PARENTS AS POSSIBLE TOGETHER, AND IN UNISON PERSONALLY OR WRITTEN, APPROACH THE HANHOLLA ABOUT THE MATTER, IN AN AIDEL MANNER.
IT WORKED!
