Rabbi Reisman Relishes Receivables

Lekavod Purim:

I was told that Rabbi Reisman received an assortment platter of cookies for Mishloach Manos.

One of his visitors asked him if it is "Reisman's"?

Rabbi Reisman replied: "Now it is."

We live in a generation where we'd rather witness an event than experience it ourselves. Shame.

Papers Pervert PAC Photograph(s)

There was a time in recent memory when the Frum publications published pictures of women. The Artscroll biographies included many such pictures.
Recently, however, there has been a push to disallow pictures of women and girls, to the extent that publications blot out the faces of little
girls in their Purim costume advertisements.

Now I have no issue if a publication wants to cater to its readership. If you don't want to print pictures of women, that is fine. But then why print a picture of Rebbitzen Pam?

And finally, it is geneivas daas in my opinion to print pictures that are altered to make people think that there were no women in the picture.

Of course in this case it is entirely possible that the women were asked to step aside during a male only picture.
