Nov 22

       
The Maharil writes that we start saying ותן טל ומטר  on the 22nd* day in November and the siman is בך יבורך ישראל
?

The Mahril (1365-1427) had  the Julian calendar. 60 days from the Tekufah** was November 22.

In 1582  the Gregorian calendar was Introduced.60 days from the Tekufah
is Dec.4. (until year 2100 then it will be on Dec.5)***

*The Abudraham mentions the 22nd & 23d

**Solar year divided by 4 (Tekufos) 
=91days, 7 hours + x minutes

***every 100 years it keeps moving up by
a day, except for a century that is divisible
by 400 example 2,000 (in the year 2000
we didn't move to the 5th

  1. Notice this unfair double-standard:

    Europeans tolerate numerous Muslim
    “no-go zones”, filled with Muslim immigrants.

    But Europeans would NEVER tolerate even
    ONE “no-go zone”, if it were created by Jews!

    ===================================
    Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

    “It is true that the American legal system
    derives much of its content from the Old Testament
    [also known as the Jewish Bible or Tanach]…

    When we were growing up, my friends and I
    would take great pride in discovering the
    Jewish sources of American laws, such as:

    the privilege against self-incrimination,
    the requirement of two witnesses for certain
    types of crime, and the very idea that punishment
    must be proportionate to the crime committed.”

    ===================================
    Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz
    grew up Orthodox but later became secular.

    He said this about Orthodox Judaism,
    many years after he quit it:

    “I cannot leave my progeny any legacy
    comparable to the Orthodox commitment to,
    and intimate knowledge of, Jewish tradition
    and practice that my predecessors left me.

    Though I have not abandoned my Jewishness
    – far from it – I have also not carried on
    the tradition of daily religious observance and
    total immersion in the sources of the tradition.

    Sometimes I regret not having done so.”

    ===================================
    Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

    “…Zecharia, like so many of his contemporaries,
    worked for a time in a sweatshop.

    The shop he worked in, making pocketbooks,
    was located in a building just east of
    Washington Square [in Manhattan], site of
    the ill-fated Triangle Shirtwaist Company.

    On the Saturday of the great fire in
    [March 25,] 1911 [CE] that engulfed
    the building and killed 145 workers,
    Reb Zecharia was at home.
    It was the Jewish Sabbath.

    He learned two lessons from this:
    he vowed that his children would never
    become factory workers and he vowed that
    they would never work on the Sabbath.”

    CHRONOLOGY:
    Zecharia Derschowitz moved from Galicia
    to the USA in 1888 CE. He was the great-
    grandfather of Alan M. Dershowitz.
