If Threads are too Thick to Loop Around to Measure

p. 35 Chapter Twelve   What Makes Zizit Unsuitable for Use

--update on cholim - Franco is scheduled for surgery today and doesn't have internet for the next few days - hopefully we'll hear good news soon. For updates on Joey please go to

3. When (in order to measure if the threads are in order) we need to know if there is enough thread of the zizit to loop around the other zizit and the threads in question are too thick to loop around, and if they would have been thinner there would have been enough, then they are in order (Sh. Ar. ibid.) (We calculate according to average-sized threads. Rema ibid)

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, having thyroid surgery soon. 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.
