    is also the time pope (and later saint) sylvester died and is a celebrated event around the world due to many believing their luck for the coming year will be enhanced by this saint/pope.
    Unfortunately sylvester was a vicious anti-semite and was responsible for the deaths of many of our brethren. So, by celebrating new years one indirectly also celebrates this anti-semites holiday !!!

    Yenikas Hachitzoynim question still stands.

    This question came from what you said about nittle, notthe Rubashkin case. In Tanya it says that evil does not exist and is just an absence of light. But we also know there is power in evil.. as you recognized Dec 25th as a day where we don’t want to feed the yenikas hachitzoniyus. So does evil exist but or not? It does but it’s not real existence?

    Thank you

    MOST IF NOT ALL FRUM YIDDEN DONT KNOW OR WANT TO KNOW ABOUT THIS. SO WHY MENTION IT?

    WHAT WE DO KNOW US ITS ALL SHTUS AND MOLEI TUMA. NOT NOGEA TO US.

    Thank you. I found this very episode very informative. Explaining the bckground related to the “new year” gave me context and demystified what i was previously confused about. Yasher koach.
