"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

"I have read your book and much like it." - Moses Hadas

***

One of the things you always ask:

Orthodox Judaism: Clothing/Old Testament

"Expert: Rabbi Ari Shishler
Date: 11/26/2007
Subject: Clothing/Old Testament

Question
I do not have the scripture reference verse, but you probably will find it quickly. I am curious as to why one of the laws was to not wear clothes of 2 different materials. Do you know what the reason for that might have been? Do you consider that law to still be in effect?
Thank you.

Answer
Hi Bill

The Torah prohibits wearing garments of a wool and linen mixture. There is no reason given for this prohibition, it is classified as a "chok", the unique brand of Torah commandments that have no known reason.

The purpose of this sort of commandment is to train us to serve G-d out of commitment and acceptance, rather than human appreciation.

I hope that helps you.

Regards

Rabbi Shishler"


Okay. A very honest answer.

If only everyone else were as honest.
