Don’t Ask NOW! (5772 Noach -repost)

Don’t Ask NOW!.

A fascinating post by Rabbi Simcha Weinberg at Foundation Stone.  He posits that we should ask Halacha for its opinion on an act before taking the act, rather than questioning in retrospect, and ties this to Noah’s behavior in this week’s Parsha and the deal for Gilad’s release.

What is your opinion of Halacha?  Is it relevant today?  How do you address the decisions that lie before you?  What are your standards for success and failure?  Do these equate to emotions like happy and unhappy, or a positive or negative state of affairs?
