Full Of Bull


In the Torah months have no names. They are numbered (1st, 2nd etc.) except for ניסן which is called חדש האביב.

In תנ"ך we do find different names for some months.
 ניסן = אביב, אייר = זיו,  תשרי = ירח האתנים, מרחשון= בול

The months אלול,כסליו,טבת,שבט,אדר & ניסן appear in 
תנ"ך (as is) Chodesh Cheshvan in תנ"ך
 (Melochim 1:6:38 is referred to  as ירח בול  month of Bull.

The Midrash (תנחומא) writes that after the מבול
it used to rain heavily for 40 days starting from Rosh
Chodesh Cheshvan. Shlomo Hamelech after completing
the Bais Hamikdash davened for the heavy rains to stop.

Therefore the מ from מבול was removed and changed 
to בול. (The month the Bais Hamikdash was completed)
The פרי חדש writes if a גט was dated ירח בול it is
a kosher גט.
The רמ"א (Hl. Gittin 126 :6) writes to spell the month
מרחשון  (not חשון ) in a גט.
The Poskim (Pischei Teshuva- Get Poshut)  rule if it was written חשון “  it is כשר בדיעבד.

Harav Hagaon R. Y.S. Elashiv zt"l ruled, If a Rosh Yeshiva,
Rov etc. was Mesader with a Kesubah spelled “ חשון“ ,    
since בדיעבד it is Kosher, you should not embarrass him
to make him correct his mistake.


  1. May I humbly suggest that in the future,
    this blog talk about the importance of avoiding:
    Lashon HaRa, Onaat Debarim, Nibul Peh,
    and talking in synagogues during prayer times?

    “Israelis like generals, but most of them
    have lost all patience with those parties
    — no matter who leads them — that push for
    trading more land for peace when they know the
    transaction will turn out to be land for terror.

    The next election would be a good time
    for Americans who think they know better
    about what’s right for the Jewish state
    to spend more time listening to Israeli
    voters than lecturing them.”

    What a Political General Teaches Us
    ABOUT the Israel-Diaspora Disconnect

    “While SJP and BDS can’t hurt Israel, they
    do pose a genuine threat to American Jews.

    It is Jewish students who are singled out
    for opprobrium, and isolated and attacked
    on campuses by SJP activists with the aid
    of their anti-Zionist allies in radical
    pro-BDS groups like Jewish Voice for Peace.

    It can create an atmosphere in which
    it is difficult for Jews to publicly
    express their identity.”

  2. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout
    of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?


anything that is not relevant to the post will be marked as spam.
