Vort For Parshas Shemini

PARSHAS HASHAVUA

 

אל-תְּשַׁקְּצוּ, אֶת-נַפְשֹׁתֵיכֶם

 

The  Bais Yosef (Y.D. 121) quotes the ארחת חיים who says:
“The same way one needs to Kasher a vessel that has absorbed איסור, so too must one Kasher a vessel that absorbed 
דבר מאוס (repulsive) like urine etc. You should not be מקיל on this מנהג”

The
ב"י argues. He holds " This מנהג of Kashering such a vessel has no source and nobody follows it.
 All you need to do is rinse clean the vessel and may use it without Kashering."
I once heard an explanation on the מחלוקת ארחת חיים & ב"י, is if the איסור בל תשקצו is an איסור גברא (subject)
or איסור חפצא (object).

The
ארחת חיים holds it is an איסור חפצא, therefore, when it is absorbed in a כלי it is no different than any other איסור 
absorbed which needs Kashering.

The ב"י holds
בל תשקצו is an איסור גברא therefore since the vessel was cleaned and he is not repulsed by it he can use it.
Therefore there is no need to Kasher it.

  1. Let us never forget:

    [1] During World War II, the Arabs were on the side of the Nazis. There was a pro-Nazi rebellion in Iraq.

    [2] Hitler’s original plan for the Jews was expulsion, until the Mufti, the religious leader of the Palestinians, persuaded Hitler to burn the Jews instead.

    [3] British Mandatory Palestine was a refuge for Jews fleeing the Holocaust, until pressure from all Muslim nations from Pakistan in the east to Morocco in the west persuaded the British to close that escape route.

    [4] The Mufti, the religious leader of the Palestinians, celebrated Adolph Hitler’s 60th birthday by sending 60 Jewish children from Jerusalem to Germany,
    where they were killed and their skin used to make lampshades.

    [5] In the decades following the Holocaust, Syria was a haven for convicted Nazi war criminals, who were promoted to high-level government jobs in Syria.

    [6] In the decades following the Holocaust, many Arab leaders publicly praised Adolph Hitler many times.

    [7] Even today, Mein Kampf by Adolph Hitler is a best-selling book in Arab and Muslim countries, where it is prominently displayed in book fairs.
