Hakirah Volume 3 - Pre-Publication Notice . Metzitzah Be- Peh article available on line now.

It is my pleasure to announce that Hakirah Volume 3 is at the printers and will be available for distribution June 24.

This issue contains very exciting articles on a variety of subjects and by prominent authors. Several articles address issues that affect our community and are very pertinent to the current debate. The article by Dr. Sprecher addressing the issue of Metzitzah Be-Peh is available now in full on line at http://hakirah.org/Volume%203.htm and I urge you all to read it. It is an eye opener and I believe will bring a new dimension to the debate.

I also urge you to subscribe and reserve your printed issue as this volume has taken our small enterprise to a whole new level of scholarship. The Y2K article is proposing a solution to the 166 missing years that will completely revolutionize our understanding of that whole issues. The articles on the Eruv issue brings a new perspective to the whole controversy. With a total of 10 articles this is the most ambitious volume we have published so far.

    None just a sentence. But they were not wrong but rather polemical and for a good reason.In fact they knew the true calendar and told us about it if you know where to find it. i will say no more. Read and you will not be sorry. Unfortunately that will only be available to subscribers after June 24.

  5. I am waiting to see what Chaim Milikowsky has to say on the subject when his Seder Olam finally comes out. Although First summarizes Chefetz's argument in Megadim, does anyone know where the article itself is available? I have never seen a Megadim for sale in the USA.
