Dvar Hashem Me'Yerushalmi: Killing Lice on Shabbos
The problem with the Bavli's position that killing lice on Shabbos is permitted because they do not reproduce sexually is well known. However, according to the proposed girsa of the Sha'arei Toras Eretz Yisroel to Yerushalmi Shabbos 8a , who substitutes eil...

Shiur at the MTA field day at Camp Monroe, 24 Iyar 5775. Since the shiur took place outdoors, the video is poor quality, but the audio is fine.

Dvar Hashem Me'Yerushalmi: Beisa k'man d'malia dami
In the Bavli, Rashi in a couple of places says that beisa k'man d'malia dami is because a house is dark and its air is thick. The Yerushalmi Shabbos 4a clearly disagrees, as its sevara - which has no parallel in the Bavli - is that avir mechitzos k'mamasha....

I have been banking with Citibank since 1985. One of my names does not appear as the official name on the account, but I have it on my checks and on other financial instruments I use. I have deposited hundreds, perhaps thousands, of checks in that name with no problem. Once before I had a deposited check returned, went into a different branch, explained the problem to a teller, who deposited it without any problem. Yesterday I had a deposited check returned for the same problem, and went into the Suffern branch. The teller would not deposit it without the approval of someone higher up the chain of command, but was reasonably polite, even trying to be helpful. The first fellow from behind a desk was not particularly polite, and certainly not helpful. He bounced the issue up to the manager, who was downright nasty. I have never been treated as a criminal in a bank before, but this fellow pretty blatantly and rudely charged that I was trying to pass a check made out to some other person (who just happens to share my last name - that this person's first name also appears on my check he attributed to my chicanery, since one can personalize a check any way he wants). I was shocked at the treatment. It was incredible. I walked out embarrassed and shamed. I strongly recommend staying away from these horrible people.

They told me on the phone I could have a used 06 Corolla for the price on the website for the same price certified. They also said it had ABS and side air bags. Guess what? When I got there, no ABS, no side air bags, and I had to pay more to have it certified. They tried to sell me something much more expensive by explaining how the payments would be the same, trying hard to avoid mentioning an actual price. They tried to make me feel guilty for actually expecting what they said on the phone to be true! All this with long periods of downtime to leave me to stew,
