No polygamy

Yesterday Yeshiva Darchei Torah hosted its annual Tisha B'Av kinos. Among the illustrious list of speakers was Rabbi Greenberg who spoke very well and covered a number of key points, one of them is mentioned in the post I linked to in the previous post.  Another point he made was a reference to Rabbeinu Gershon, who held the title "meor hagola" [the light of the diaspora]. What did he do to earn such a title? The answer, attributed to R' Leibel Eiger was that his edicts were an assurance to the Jewish people. Of course he is famous for his ban on polygamy. In addition to that point for a monogamous relationship, he declared that no man may divorce his wife against her will. The Jewish people's relationship with G-d is always compared to a marriage.

A Shabbos of Vision

There are several Shabbatot within the Jewish calendar that carry a special name.  for example, Shabbos HaGadol  is the name designated for the Sabbath day that falls out just before Passover,Shabbos  Shuva-- for the one before Yom Kippur ,Shabbos Shira --- when the Torah portion ofBeshalach is read, and there are several other Sabbaths named for theHaftorah[a selection fromBooks of the Prophets] portion read on them.  This Sabbath is among those, namedShabbos Chazon [The Shabbos of Prophetic Vision] for theHaftorah portion read from the beginning of the book ofYeshayahu[ Isaiah 1:1-27).  This haftorah is the culmination of the three sections foretelling the tragedy fo destruction designated for reading during the3 week period .  These prophecies are meant to remind us that the loss of the Temple is not part of ancient history but relevant to our lives now.  Concentrating on the words associated with those events of two thousand years ago is supposed to remind us that they still apply…
