Resting & Proofing (dough) — Typically, when making bread, dough is kneaded a first time, then "rested" – allowed to sit and rise (leaven), kneaded again and then "proofed" (a second, shorter, rest period for a final leavening).


Modern European Rabbinic Reforms

: From floor cleaners to lipstick

Modern rabbis contravening Dᵊvâr•im 13.1 (and mindless followers contravening Shᵊm•ot 23.2) have expanded the list of products to include pages of listings – from condiments to ice cream, dish-washing soap, hand soap, bath soap, kitchen cleaning products, water softeners, lipstick, toothpaste, coffee, soft drinks, used toothbrushes, laundry detergents, floor cleaning products, bleach, Chandelier Cleaner, Coppersmith's Polish, European Jewelry Bath and silver cleaner, Fine China Separators, Fork Cleaner and grain-based whiskeys. Today, in order to satisfy Orthodox rabbis, one must consult a list at the Orthodox Union website or the like. This is the inescapable, ex falso quodlibet, result of insisting on the false premise that the Sages cannot have been mistaken. Moses erred!

– Sham "Sale" of to a Gentile

Scripture prohibits the universal Orthodox (and Ultra-Orthodox) practice of placing offending products in a cupboard or closet that is then taped closed for the period of Khag ha-Matz•ot. The offending contents are still located within one's borders. The subsequent, absurdly sham, "sale," at a ridiculously symbolic price, to a gentile cannot override the Scriptural prohibition. (The contents are then "bought back" after Khag ha-Matz•ot.)

Needless to say, the Nᵊtzâr•im do not accept either these contraventions of Scripture or this sham.

Preventing : Kneading-To-Cooking Time Limit

The kinds of grain that form after being wetted and allowed to "rest" were defined by Talmudic times as The Five Species; and the maximum time that flour from The Five Species were permitted to set before evidence of was observed was set at the length of time it takes to walk a Roman mile [.92 mi., 1.48 km], when the surface of dough that had not been seeded with would begin to pale. (indicating this was almost certainly tradition handed down from practice in the time of Ribi Yᵊho•shua – which, therefore, logic dictates must be assumed until proven differently), the rabbis defined five bread grains that, under two other conditons, form .

Therefore, unless carefully guarded, might develop (and contain) leaven (yeast). The list of modern products has grown from cereals to pages of listings from spaghetti to canned foods and powdered soups, to condiments containing yeast, dish and kitchen cleaning products, water softeners, lipstick, toothpaste, coffee, soft drinks, used toothbrushes, laundry detergents, floor cleaning products, bleach, Chandelier Cleaner, Coppersmith's Polish, European Jewelry Bath and silver cleaner, Fine China Separators, Fork Cleaner and grain-based whiskeys. Today, one must consult a list at the Orthodox Union website or the like.

Scripture

  3. Ho•sheia 7.4 – … burning like the oven of a baker, until He shall cease – from the kneading of the until (A reminder: Reconciling 𝕸 with Tar•gum Yo•nâ•tân has baffled the Sages.

(m.n.)

The following (exhuastive) Scriptures instantiating prohibit the universal Orthodox – and Ultra-Orthodox – practice of placing offending products in a cupboard or closet that is then taped closed for the period of Khag ha-Matz•ot. The offending contents are still located within one's borders. The subsequent, absurdly sham, "sale," at a ridiculously symbolic price, to a gentile cannot override the Scriptural prohibition. (The contents are then "bought back" after Khag ha-Matz•ot.) Needless to say, the Nᵊtzâr•im do not approve the sham.
