Something missing from Mis-nagid's Masbia Mission.


Omitted from Mis-nagid's post last week was "how much to donate to Masbia".

Kolel Yungerleit and others may choose to give 18 for Chai (or some nice multiple thereof). The Kabbalists will undoubtedly donate something like 26 for Yud-Kei_Vuv-Kei. And some others may give some other long cherished Gematria. Like 52 for someone looking to sire a son.

Hmm. Here's where the skeptics and heretics have it difficult.

So lets start with the obvious.

(Here's where I get into trouble with poor Hebrew Spelling. Or maybe it's my math.)

We can go for 441 which is Emes, after all that's what were searching for. Others will insist we give 306 for Kofer, cause thats what they call us. I would think something like 114 might be appropriate for Madah but others will say 418 for Taavah (did I spell that right?) because they believe we have ulterior motives. I say 240 is really appropriate for Safeik and I imagine Godol Hador will want to donate 516 for Taiku.

One thing seems clear. It's much more expensive to be a Skeptic than a Maamin.

    According to Shulchon Oruch the soup kitchen must collect daily so big numbers would make you bankrupt
