Buyer Beware - Must be Made LeShem Mitzva

Update on cholim - We are still awaiting news on Franco's thyroid surgery, which was scheduled this past Thursday - we might not hear about results for a few days.

However, as promised, B"H we did our first Happiness Conference Call Thursday night on skype, reading the Rabbi Pliskin Happiness book as a merit for these and other cholim - we thank those who participated and hope you will all join us for the next installment this coming Tuesday at 9pm (contact me to find out how to join -

p. 36 Chapter Twelve   What Makes Zizit Unsuitable for Use Al Hashulchan

2. Since there are special laws when zizit are halachically suitable or not, one must be careful not to buy zizit from just anyone but only to buy from a trustworthy person who has fear of G-d and who knows that they were made for the purpose of the Mitzva.  If they were not made with this intention then the wearer does not fulfill the Mitzva of zizit and his blessings are said in vain. (Od Yossef Chai, Noach 5)

Note from us: Please consult your own rabbi to find out what to do - these are for learning purposes only.
As quoted from:
Shulchan HaMelech, a Kitzur Shulchan Aruch in 3 volumes as compiled by Maharan HaRav Shmuel Laniado z'al, 1923 with the supplement "Al HaShulchan" containing various opinions compiled by Ezra Basri, Chief Justice of the District Court, Jerusalem in 1992.

We would like to dedicate this learning for the speedy and complete recovery of two people: our friends' 5-year-old son, Joseph Benjamin, son of Ireneusz Khrystof, diagnosed in April with ALL leukemia, and a longtime friend of the family, Frank, son of Joseph, who should be recovering from thyroid surgery. Please have them in mind when studying. If you would like updates on their progress, please let me know so I can tell you when I find out from either or both.
