Re: FORGERY!! By Pro-Tekheleth video

Basically forgery is okay. Got it. (In actuality, the word purpura here refers to the color purple, not the creature. The second translation is obviously innacurate. Either way, photoshopping an existing translation is DISHONEST.)   If you say so. Purpura being purple or the purple snail (which is ...

Re: Cooking the murex dye

Dr. Ziderman mentions in his articles that sybthetic mbi can turn blue if it is cooked at 60 c. He also mentions that the murex can turn blue if the garment is cooked after it is already dyed. He never mentions if the MUREX would turn blue if it is cooked BEFORE it is dyed. A friend of mine tried i...

Re: Techeiles in private?!

It seems to me there are two general schools of thought among Rabbonim who have adopted techeiles to varying degrees. 1.) Those who view it as vadai, and a complete chiyuv. 2.) Those who are not convinced but believe it has enough grounds to count as a sofek, hiddur, or chumra, etc. (Possibly some ...

Re: Trapping in Water

I thought that people would be interested in seeing this relatively new source from שלמה משנתו on שבת (עה, א) (from Rav Azriel Aryeh Leib Rakovsky, 19th century, newly printed from manuscript): הצד חלזון. אין ספק בזה שעיקר צידה הוא בברואי המים שמכוסים מן העין וצריך רשתות וחחים ללוכדן, וכל צידות ברו...

Re: Are There Secular Records Describing Fake Tekhelet?

Here's an open question: we know that both India indigo and woad/isatis are referred to as Kala Ilan. Woad has always been indigenous to Israel: India indigo hasn't. Does woad naturally fade over time? If that's the case then perhaps we might have found the answer: the chemical tests work with woad,...
