Stolen Wool and Credit

Update on cholim - We are still awaiting news on Franco's thyroid surgery, which was scheduled yesterday - I might not hear for a few days.

However, as promised, we did our first Happiness Conference Call last 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 next Tuesday at 9pm (contact me to find out how to join -

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

1. If a person made zizit from stolen wool it is unfit for use as the Torah says, '...and they shall make for themselves...' that is, from their legally owned property (Sh.Ar.11,6).  If that person repented and paid for his theft, he must undo the threads and retie them, thus obviating the problem of Ta'aseh, veloh min heassuy.  (Kaf Hachaim ibid. 23 and v. Biur Halacha) It is correct to make sure to pay directly for zizit and not to take them on credit. (Mishna Berura ibid. 27)

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.
