message: my fa homilylds that shabbat ends exactly 25 hours after it starts (ie 4:30-->5:30...) however, i bored at people who hold 72 min. do i have to wait the extra 12 min. to do melacha? also, i make a mezonot on matza and they make a hamotzy, if th...
reply: Years ago in foreign countries especially, people never ate Matzah, except on Passover. So if they ate it by chance during the year, they made Hamotzie. Now Matzah is very commonly eaten similar to bread, as an official meal, and is therefore Hamotzie f...

my fa homilylds that shabbat ends exactly 25 hours after it starts (ie 4:30-->5:30...) however, i bored at people who hold 72 min. do i have to wait the extra 12 min. to do melacha? also, i make a mezonot on matza and they make a hamotzy, if they use mat...
reply: You should wait till 72 minutes out of respect for your hosts, but you can do things quietly in your room. Everyone should make Hamotzie on Matzah. AA...
33.  Netilat Yadaim  by Yakov on 1/21/2004 12:19:00 PM
Kavod Harav: May one wash hands in the bathroom sink (without "having gone" to the bathroom first - I know there are special rules for this), dry them outside the bathroom, and then recite the netilat yadaim bracha before making Hamotzi? Or, does th...
reply: you can wash your hands in the bathroom. Then, dry them off outside the bathroom while saying the Beracha. CYA...
34.  Gluten  by Simcha on 1/6/2004 9:40:00 AM
L'chvod Harav; I must eat oat matza the entire year for birkat Hamotzi due to gluten intolerance, which for me is deadly. 1) The matzot break because they have no gluten. I rarely have a shleima. There are no bar mitzvah age children left at home. Shou...
reply: Oats are not one of the five grains. Your Matzah is not Hamotzie, but rather Haadamah at the very most. 1) Yes 2) Do not eat these as Matzah on Pesach. If you are allergic to Gluten, you are not required to eat Matzah on Pesach. Feeling bad about that ...
35.  re: salad  by jack on 12/21/2003 11:32:00 PM
but wat beracha does one make on the salad? ha'adama? what about the croutons- they're hamotzi, and the fish - they're shehakol?...
reply: It would depend on the salad. There is a main ingredient, and at times we cannot determine which is the main. In such a case, you find something else to make a Ha'Adamah on, and a cookie for Mezonot, and some cheese for Shehakol, or even a mushroom for ...
36.  Bracha on Pizza  by martin on 12/21/2003 1:15:00 AM
Dear Rabbi, Please clarify the correct Bracha on Pizza. Whether it`s for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and 1 slice, 4 slices or 2 pizzas. I`ve been given different answers based on these parameters. Isn`t Pizza, by definition, pie? Thanks, Martin ...
reply: Pizza is not like pie. Pizza is always Hamotzie, and we must wash and afterwards say Birkat Hamazon. The ones that say it is Mezonot, are not aware of the reasons behind the laws. They heard something else is Mezonot and they tried to compare. Comparin...
37.  blessing  by alex on 10/28/2003 12:39:00 PM
What blessing do you say on croutons, like the ones you put in a salad? Blessings wise, assuming the same ingredients, what is the halakhic distinction between crackers and bread? Thanks ...
reply: crackers are eaten like crackers, as a snack, but bread is eaten like bread, a meal. Croutons that are "real" pieces of bread, are Hamotzie. Most packaged croutons are made specifically as croutons and are like crackers, Mezonot. AA...
38.  rosh hashana  by BOB on 9/25/2003 6:25:00 PM
kavod harav, 1)there appear to be several sheetot in how to eat the seemanim and recite the yh"ratzon. what is your recommendation(before hamotzi or after, etc.) 2)am i correct that you have explained that women should not light on the second night of...
reply: 1) It's up to each person. There are no set rules. 2) Correct! 3) one candle is not enough, you need a few wicks. Havdalah is the blessing of Havdalah specifically, & not the other two blessings on the Besamim & the fire. Those are not a requirement of...

reply: 1) Not everything is Pareve. I'm not sure how you determined that. 2) They have ingredients, read them. 3) Hamotzie 4) No problem. Just don't let them use a Pizza oven with cheese all over. I doubt that would happen. AA...
40.  Water Challah  by jouziel on 8/25/2003 10:34:00 AM
Rabbi: In response to Rob's inquiry regarding whether differences exist between Sepharadim and Ashkenazim regarding Hamotzie for challah, you wrote: "All Challah is the same for all Jews. To look into this, you need to learn Berachot 6th Perek, an...
reply: Look at the Mishneh Berura & Biur Halachah. It is an issue only if the taste of the honey & Tavlin are enough to..... Look it up. AA...
