Machine Made Tzitzit

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

3. When the strands of zizit are woven by machine the machine operator must say at the beginning of the process 'Leshem Mitzvat Zizit- for the purpose of the Mitzva of zizit.'  There are authorities who are stringent concerning machine-made zizit and consider them unsuitable for use; therefore those who follow this strict ruling and buy hand-woven zizit shall receive a special blessing. (Sefer Halacha 75)

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, Franco, 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.

Update on cholim - We are still awaiting news on Franco's thyroid surgery, which was scheduled for this past Thursday - we have not yet heard about results.

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 (tomorrow night) at 9pm (contact me to find out how to join -
