7/31/21 – Shiur 332 – Should birthdays be celebrated? Is having a birthday cake and candles a problem of Chukos Hagoyim? Can they be blown out?
Is a birthday a day to celebrate? If so, how? Are there more significant birthdays, like the 70th? How should Jonathan Rosenblum celebrate his 70th this week? Have the gedolim historically celebrated their own birthdays? Is there a problem of Chukas Hagoyim to have a birthday cake? To have candles on it? To blow out the candles? To make a wish?
