I Asked...and Got an Answer

Blogroll Me!

I've had a Pesach-related Halachic question floating around my brain forever. Back and forth, back and forth, my husband and I have tossed the matter around over the past few years. He has his minhagim, I have mine, but we'd agreed on this minhag. However it was time to find out if it was just our family traditions ruling us, or if there was any Halachic basis to our years-old practice.

I just got off the computer (thought I was going to say "phone," didn't you?) with a religious adviser from www.askmoses.com. Aside from it being a web site offering insights, I received immediate gratification with receiving an answer after my online discussion with the "agent" at the other end.

This service is run by Lubavitch, and I've used it before. It is a wonderful resource for some quick responses, if you don't want to call your own rabbi or another religious educational institution/organization.

Please go ask Moses your questions. He is online 24/6!

It really is cool. I've used ot before, you can actually talk to a live person, they have people online that you chat with in real time.

Yes, it is cool indeed. To have a question that's been a topic of discussion prior to Pesach every year for the last number of years, and to have that question answered in a matter of short minutes is wonderful.

Again, I advise people to link to www.askmoses.com

AskMoses is swell, but why did you not ask your own rabbi? Also, in matters influenced by local custom, I think AskMoses gives the Chabad answer, which might not be the right Minhag for you.Of course,I'm at a great advantage on these things. I can ask my husband, and if I'm not happy with his answer, the books are all here and I can show him where I got my ideas from. If we really aren't sure, (or can't agree) we call his rabbi.
