    Reminds me of something my great great grandfather, Reb Elyah Lopian said. When telephones were not yet commonplace he remarked how odd it seemed that one could pick up a handset and speak with someone across the world. Reb Elyah said that it was a perfect mashal for tefilah. We talk, using a specific code, and i reaches the Recipient. The telephone made it easier for him to understand tefilla.

    This is how gedolim think…

    In all honesty, I think that people who talk on cell phones in the middle of the street ARE insane, but maybe I am missing the point. 🙂

    I do miss those mincha’s in an airport phone booth.

    We agree again….

    The difference between placing a cell phone call in public versus conversing with HKBH, is that with a cell call one is bringing in someone who is not there and shutting out (or disturbing) those who are, but with tefilla Hashem is already present, and does not require noisy chattering to engage Him.

    Ahhh, yes, I have used the cell phone to “talk” before…very good response from the rabbi.
