Its Not A Joke !
(הוא נתנה לי מן העץ (בראשית ג : י"ג
The Ba'al Haturim writes that אדם said to Hashem "שהיכיתני בעץ עד ששמעתי
beat me with a stick and forced me to listen to her". (first
day of marriage)
IS THIS A JOKE?
Someone wrote in one of the Torah journals
(הדרום ניסן תשכ"ה) that this must be a joke. Some
prankster must have added it to the Bal Haturim. He claims it
is a Mitzvah to erase this quote from the Ba'al Haturim.
The truth is this quote was not added by a prankster. The original
כתבי יד (manuscripts) still exists and it says so clearly.
Also the Chofetz Chaim in שם עולם* quotes the exact quote in
the name of the Midrash.
