My Dear Haham,
I was intrigued by your reply to a recent question regarding use of digital stove top settings on yom tob. Your reply was as follows:
“That whole concept of only taking from an existing flame is completely misunderstood. I can elaborate at a later date. Please remind me after the Pesach madness. In the interim, you can use the electronic oven buttons and a hotel room key. Everyone does it anyway. lol”
I have probably adhered to the most stringent interpretation of this halaha. Please explain the misconception referred to in your answer at your convenience.
