You're suggesting WHAT...?[edit]

At the Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of people who went to heaven alive did you just suggest that the article in question be moved to your User page, or was that a typing error? If in error, please clarify. If not, please justify. ;) Noroton 16:57, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

I actually suggested that it be moved to Category: People who went to heaven alive, just that when I typed [[Category: People who went to heaven alive]] it didn't show up in my comment. --רח"ק | Talk | Contribs 20:59, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Toras Moshe[edit]

Would you please reconsider your 05:42, 8 April 2007 edit to the Toras Moshe article. "Principal" is a keyword in the standard info box and changing it causes the desired information to not be displayed. Truthanado 12:10, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Fine, you can revert it if you want, but I don't really think the term "principal" is applicable to a post-High School Talmudical seminary. --רח"ק | Talk | Contribs 04:00, 11 April 2007 (UTC)
I have modified the info box to show Rabbi Moshe Meisleman as the Director, which I trust is more appropriate. If not, perhaps some knowledgeable Wikipedian can create a Yeshiva infobox with the correct terminology. Shalom. Truthanado 01:12, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

"Jewish descent" versus Jew[edit]

Der Rosh Yeshiva[edit]


You took that picture of Der Rosh Hayeshiva, Ruv Usher Weiss SHLIT"A?? --Shuli 14:18, 29 April 2007 (UTC) It was my chavrusa who snapped the photo. --רח"ק | Talk | Contribs 21:37, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

Reb Chaim HaQoton[edit]

Hello. I appreciate your comments explaining your use of a blog in the external links for Reb Chaim HaQoton. I actually didn't remove that from David as you stated, but in fact removed it from Davidic line. Wiki has standards set about blogs, and they are not to be used. I didn't set the standard. BTW, the so called "sources" in the article are not verifiable as they link to nothing. I couldn't get one link to open up. It's not really the issue though.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jeffmichaud (talkcontribs) 18:26, 13 July 2007.

Next time please sign your name when posting comments on my TALK page. If you look at the end of every article on Reb Chaim HaQoton you will see a list of all the footnotes and the sources cited, these sources can be easily verifiable. I do not feel that posting the link to Reb Chaim HaQoton was a violation of Rule 11 of Links normally to be avoided in Wikipedia:External_links for the above cited reasons. I do intend to revert your edit to the article unless you can prove your stance. רח"ק | Talk | Contribs 04:49, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

I don't need to prove anything. The verifiability of the content of the BLOG is not in question. Blogs aren't allowed. I didn't make the rule. This blog article isn't contributing to points made in the articles. Rule 11's exemptions apply to links being used in the article as a source. This isn't being used in the article at all, nor is the content of the blog relevant to the content of the articles. It's just using them to advertise the blog. If it's so relevant to the content of the article, why aren't you contributing it to the article? Jeff 06:09, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

This discussion should continue here Jeff 08:22, 15 July 2007 (UTC)


it lists in those other places i quoted the names of the gentile prophets which number 8 one of whom was female thus 8 female prophets--Java7837 15:16, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

ok...--רח"ק | Talk | Contribs 17:30, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

Can u please give me the info on the 48 jewish male prophets that u were talking about--Java7837 18:28, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

Sure. See User:Rachack/48 Prophets. --רח"ק | Talk | Contribs 19:02, 15 July 2007 (UTC)
In english please--Java7837 19:05, 15 July 2007 (UTC)
Sorry, I don't have time to translate/transliterate it.רח"ק | Talk | Contribs 19:06, 15 July 2007 (UTC)
that ip keeps putting all those guys under prophets if we had the list translated it will final proof that they aren't i believe the ip is catholic he keeps putting the latin name next too the common english name under christianity--Java7837 19:26, 15 July 2007 (UTC)
perhaps it is time to report about this guy to Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/3RR. רח"ק | Talk | Contribs 21:22, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

the ip stopped after a long period of time I think he just didn't realize there is different criteria in Judaism for a prophet than for Christianity--Java7837 21:24, 15 July 2007 (UTC)


see this guy keeps adding joseph ruth ezra noah and nehemiah to Table of Prophets of Abrahamic Religions under judaism can u plz talk to him about this he seems to think my reverts are vandalism--Java7837 19:08, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

done. --רח"ק | Talk | Contribs 19:13, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Zvi Block[edit]

An article that you have been involved in editing, Zvi Block, has been listed for deletion. If you are interested in the deletion discussion, please participate by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Zvi Block. Thank you. -- Jon513 21:46, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Again? --רח"ק | Talk | Contribs 00:19, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

Rabbi Zvi Block[edit]

Hi. Some of those are impressive, and I'll modify my comment at the AfD page. I recommend that you edit Zvi Block. At a minimum, add those links, with the titles and sources of the articles, as External links or Further reading. It would be better still to incorporate them as footnotes to the article, but I realize that would take quite a bit of time that you may not have right now. — Malik Shabazz (Talk | contribs) 06:48, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

I truly do not have time. In fact, I'm moving to Israel this week, and I probably should be packing, not spending my time on Wikipedia! --רח"ק | Talk | Contribs 06:51, 22 July 2007 (UTC)
I would advise you first very sharply edit the list. Mentions are not significant references. Listing of religious services in LA are not notables; presence of his name on a petition or a letter is not notable. The award in your ref 44, for example, might be notable. The program in no. 27 might be notable. Then perhaps you will have time to enter the few that are. DGG (talk) 06:55, 22 July 2007 (UTC)
See my changes again to User:Rachack/Zvi Block/Links. רח"ק | Talk | Contribs 07:02, 22 July 2007 (UTC)


I really would appreciate if you could translate that 48 prophets page i know will take some time so can you do over a span of time say a week i am very intersted in knowing what it says.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Java7837 (talkcontribs) 09:16, 22 July 2007

I am really busy, I truly don't have time, I am moving to Israel later this week and I have a lot of stuff to take of. Perhaps after I'm settled I will have more time to translate it. Or you can ask another Wikipedian who speaks Hebrew to do it for you. Sorry. רח"ק | Talk | Contribs 16:37, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

Re: Chavos Yair[edit]

I apologize[edit]

Between December 14, 2005 and June 7, 2007, I vandalized Wikipedia under my previous username (YechielMan) and under various IP addresses and alternate accounts.

I recently reviewed the contribution logs of all the accounts and IP addresses that I can recall having used. My goal was to identify all of the intentionally harmful edits I caused, and to apologize to the individual users who reverted those edits, or warned me, or blocked me.

Hence, I apologize to you and to all of the following users:

Adam Bishop, Amarkov, Antandrus, AntiVandalBot, Bdj (Badlydrawnjeff), Conk 9, CanbekEsen, DLand, Downwards, Eagle 101, Ericbronder, Gogo Dodo, High on a tree, Hut 8.5, Interiot, Jayjg, Jrwallac, Kingboyk, Kuru, Noclip, Patrick Berry, PFHLai, PhantomS, Pollinator, Rachack, Ranma9617, Rx StrangeLove, SlimVirgin, Tfrogner, TommyBoy, Vary, Woohookitty, Zzuuzz, and some anonymous IPs. (I also reverted one edit myself after it went unnoticed for three weeks.)

Thank you for maintaining the integrity of Wikipedia against everyone who has attacked it, including my old self.

If you wish to respond, please do so at my talk page.

Best regards, Shalom (HelloPeace) 19:26, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Gedolim Pictures[edit]

I saw your article about gedolim pictures and was going to nominate it for deletion because wikipedia is not a dictionary, but I think there is a possibility of fleshing out the article more to make it encyclopedic rather than dictionary-ish. Do you? If there isn't maybe it should be deleted, but I don't think it's right to just jump peoples articles with deletion tags. I'd also like to help. I bet we can find articles somewhere about the children collecting them. I know some schools do it as a prize for good attendance, etc. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Question on a previous edit[edit]


On 2007-03-30, you modified the following page:

with the following edit:

In your modification, the 'Banishment in the Bible' 'See also' reference has been completely deleted and replaced with 'Pulsa denura'. Since according to the article, cherem "developed from the Biblical ban", I think the 'Banishment in the Bible' reference is appropriate for this article, and would like to check if you have any opposition to returning the reference to 'Banishment in the Bible' back into the article.

TfD nomination of Template:ORBCOTW[edit]

Template:ORBCOTW has been nominated for deletion. You are invited to comment on the discussion at the template's entry on the Templates for Deletion page. Thank you. — Shalom (HelloPeace) 23:44, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Chaim Michael Dov Weissmandl[edit]


In the March 28 2007 Revision of the Chaim Michael Dov Weissmandl page you write as fallows,

"Nonetheless, later, some of these letters have been found, and when compared to Rabbi Weissmandl's account, they are very similar, if not word-for-word in some instances".

I have a big interest in Rabbi Weissmandl; since I’m a student of his yeshiva of Nitra, during my years in the yeshiva I’ve herd similar claims, of some letters being found.

although I don’t for one second question - g-d forbid - anything this great sage said and wrote I would still love to source this fact for others, so Bauer's attacks on this great man can be disputed.

Proposed deletion of Ram (Bible)

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Ram (Bible), suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Rabbi Tzvi Block[edit]

SOmeone keeps changing the Rabbi Block page and writing terrible things about him, they add more terrible rumors and Lashon Haraah everyday. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Hakimd (talkcontribs) 04:34, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

It's not Lashon Hora (It's not terrible rumors, I'm in possession of documentation R. Zvi Block has signed his name to that are under question), they are undisputed facts. In fact Zvi Block refuses to meet with an attorney and refuses to be recorded. You should question this man and the threats he has made.

You should question yourself, for defending a man of unscrupulous character!
