Can a Non-Frum Yid Ignite the Fire for Bishul Yisroel? feature: Dayan Levi Yitzchok Raskin, Rov of Anash in London, explores interesting Torah questions and halachic dilemmas including grafted teeth from human or animal bones, washing for bread with warm water, nursing bottle with fleishig dishes, and non-frum Yid for bishul Yisroel.

The following issues are discussed by Rabbi Raskin in this week’s episode:

  1. Why is the verse והוא יפדה appended to Tehillim ch. 25 said in Tachanun?[1]
  2. Bone for grafting teeth, sourced from humans or animals?[2]
  3. We have a balcony that is 70 cm by 150 cm. Does the doorway require a Mezuza?[3]
  4. Bottles used for mother’s milk, may they be washed together with other dishes, fleishig or milchig?[4]
  5. May one wash for bread with warm water?[5]
  6. I began snacking ‘mezonos’ at a buffet, and now realize that I’ve eaten a large amount, enough to warrant the full bentching. But I wish to eat further. Should I wash Netilas Yodayim with a brocho and say haMotzie?[6]
  7. Does the Chazan say Kodosh and Boruch Kvod in Kedusha aloud after the Tzibur,  or does he say aloud only Le’umoson and uveDivrei Kodshecho?[7]
  8. Is a non-shomer Shabbos Jew r”l be entrusted with lighting a fire so the food should be considered as Bishul Yisroel?[8]
  9. Are pills Muktza? Can one person, say a spouse, pass pills to their spouse who needs to take them?[9]
  10. Feedback with re. putting on RT tefillin instead of Rashi:
  11. Feedback on walking between Hand and Head Tefillin: [10]
