« § Controversy of Contrivance: The Attempted Justification for Uncovered Married Women's Hair by R. Yosef Wiener and R. Yosef Ifrah –
Two kollel guys write a lengthy article to rehash old arguments against R. Michael Broyde's article on womens' hair coverings ... »
New Periodical: Dialogue 1:1 | Hirhurim – Torah Musings
Is this Eid naasah Dayyan?!
The two authors brought telling proof texts which question R Broyde's entire thesis
BUT - I think they should have left the challenge as Kushiyot uVayot and not promoted themselves from testifying to JUDGING R Broyde's article EG "as Contrived."
Throwing down the Gauntlet? GOOD
Drawing Negative conclusions? Questionable
I say to leave the Judging to the Blogs and present the scholarship in the magazine.
A DIALOGUE should allow for debate. Perhaps R Broyde can answer the challenges presented?
Let's have positive feelings that we have solid sources brought to bare
And pray for withholding judgment until later. B'Tzedek Tishpot Amitecha.
