A Simple Question: Yes Or No?
Do you find that when you are learning halacha you just want to know the final ruling and are not as interested in the myriads of discussions throughout the centuries that leads to the final resolution?
All of the discussion revolving around each halacha reminds me of a recent conversation in my house:
I asked my wife whether she wanted me to to take an old cardboard box out to the trash. She responded, "Well, it is full of ...... and then again we could..... so.....maybe it would be good to...or..."
I replied, "Should I take it out? Yes or no?".
And then I got my answer, "Yes".
This is how I like my halacha.
As a working person with limited time for learning, I am a Kitzur Shulchan Aruch kind of guy. I just want to know the final psak.
