AMI MAGAZINE marriage annulment

the recent Ami magazine had a cover story about marriage annulment - did anyone  who read the article  like to summarize the article?




  1. Please put up the whole: Preserving the Sanctity of Jewish Marriage and the Integrity of Our Immutable Mesorah by Rabbi Yitzchok Frankfurter
    AMI magazine wants $30 for me to read the article. I’d like to read the article, after what I went through, see
    https://www.supremecourt.gov/docket/docket.aspx has my legal briefs. Do search Gerald Aranoff.
    This week’s parsha ויגש:
    God struck Ancient Egypt with, maybe, 7 years of extreme weather conditions including extensive draught and flooding that would wreak havoc on people getting food to eat.
    “Let us not perish before your eyes, both we and our land. Take us and our land in exchange for bread, and we with our land will be serfs to Pharaoh; provide the seed, that we may live and not die, and that the land may not become a waste. So Joseph gained possession of all the farm land of Egypt for Pharaoh, every Egyptian having sold his field because the famine was too much for them; thus the land passed over to Pharaoh. And he removed the population town by town, from one end of Egypt’s border to the other. Only the land of the priests he did not take over, for the priests had an allotment from Pharaoh, and they lived off the allotment which Pharaoh had made to them; therefore they did not sell their land.” (Genesis 47:19-22).
    Hertz Chumash p. 177: “both we and our land. The old feudal nobility of Egypt disappeared in the Hyksos period, and from the time of the eighteenth Dynasty onward we find the land, which had formerly been held by local proprietors, belonging either to Pharaoh or to the temples. At the same time public granaries make their appearance, the superintendent of which became one of the most important of Egyptian officials (Sayce).”

    Joseph was a brilliant economist. You can see my economics articles on https:\\www.scirp.org/journal/me

  2. I didn't read the article yet, but what sanctity does marriage have in Judaism?

    Rabbonim do what they want, collect their checks, and then go to the Agudah Siyum Hashas. I heard he's getting to make the Hadran.

    No sanctity.

  3. MiMedinat_HaYam “I didn't read the article yet, but what sanctity does marriage have in Judaism?”
    No. A better question: What sanctity does the land of Israel have in Judaism? Sanctity = the state or quality of being holy, sacred, or saintly. "the site of the tomb was a place of sanctity for the ancient Egyptians"
    Kethuboth Chapter 13 Mishnah 11 “All can be compelled to move to the Land of Israel but no one may be compelled to move out. All may be forced to go up to Jerusalem but none can be made to leave, whether they be men or women.”
    There’s an opinion that Torah, written and oral, before Sinai, apply only in Israel. Some say that we must observe Torah today outside of Israel only that we not forget Torah when we return to Israel. Jacob’s wife Rachel died exactly before entering Israel. Jacob marrying 2 sisters was ok outside of Israel---before Sinai.
    “I [do this because], when I was returning from Paddan, Rachel died, to my sorrow, while I was journeying in the land of Canaan, when still some distance short of Ephrath; and I buried her there on the road to Ephrath”—now Bethlehem.” (Genesis 48:7).

  4. Read it.
    The article opposes annulment of marriages.
    No problem here.
