As RSBA often reminds us, "hastu nachgeschaut?"  If you had, you would 
have found that OC 165 is "The law of one who went to the toilet and 
wishes to eat".

Never mind, the reference is obviously to OC 156.

Also, the machlokes referenced is on Kidushin 30b, not 29b as the 
article has it.  These things are important.  It's not honest to cite 
someone else's sources as if they were ones own.  If one is unable to 
look them up oneself one should cite them as "x as cited by y", because 
ones own source is y, not x.

This is simply not true.  He explicitly paskens that one must teach ones 
child a trade *or how to do business*, in other words like the Tana Kama 
and against R Yehuda.

Zev Sero            A prosperous and healthy 5779 to all
