    I work for Honeywell. In Hebrew that would really be Ein Dvash, but that could be confusing as Ein can be translated to “lacking” or “eye” as well. I could use Be’er but apostrophes are generally not accepted in user names. Mayan translates to spring which is close enough.

    #1175354

    b/c that’s what I am

    oomis
    Participant

    Oomis comes from my married son’s nickname for me from the time that he met his future Kallah. He called her by an affectionate nickname, and added part of that nickname to each of our names. Oomis is an altered form of Ema.

    You can do a Google search on my name to find out why. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My initials and location.

    Shindy – is that a nicknam for Shaindel? A totally different name? I’ve never met anyone called Shindy before.

    I don’t have internet at home.

    So I am only “here” when I am work.

    Because 646 is the gematriah of my name!

    Because Yiddishkeit should be about how much I enjoy Shabbos and doing mitzvos and not about how much I can deny and make it harder on myself and others

    Not sure :-

    (that sounds very intelligent, no?)

    Shindy,

    Just curious, is that with a “long i” or short?

    #1175364

    Because, despite what some people here have said, I believe that there is NO inherent contradiction in being an observant Jewish feminist. And because my birthday is February 2nd (02/02).

    #1175365

    Cause thats what my Chusheve husband calls me…(I wish!)

    Intelligent-

    It’s with a long I. Why do you spell your name intelligent INTELLEGENT? (with an E)

    #1175369

    beacon

    Because I liked the sound of it, primarily because it goes with “of light”. Random…

    #1175370

    at the end of the day, differences and titles aside, are we not all a chasid of Hashem?

    #1175371

    Chacham
    Participant

    I call myself Chacham because that is what (I am now).

    ps i used to be called a baal gaaveh to answer that up i caleed myself then the biggest anav

    #1175372

    Because it’s an impossibility, and yet somehow using it tick people off.

    Because I just decided I have S`michah 15 minutes ago

    (em) not for halachah L`maaseh (/em)

    Ashrecha Yisroel
    Participant

    I chose my name because I feel our main focus here on YW should be the praise of the Jews. We are a great nation dedicated to Hashem.

    Besides, it’s hard to argue with someone with such a complimentary name. ๐Ÿ™‚

    #1175376

    Jewess
    Member

    Because that is what I am…

    #1175377

    sometimes i talk to people who just dont get it… Before I joined, I read a few posts and had to comment- people were just not using seichel!

    #1175378

    nameless
    Member

    I guesse because its neutral! I dont claim to ‘know it all’ nor do I think I should be the one to decide that some posters should ‘havemoreseichel’etc,,,,

    I want to remain modest, and I’m proud of that! lol!

    thanks to “Will Hill” for starting probably the nicest thread in the cofferoom!

    I once got a brocha from an Odom Godol to learn Kitzur Shulchan Oruch, so I started a website http://www.kitzur.net (surprise, surprise ๐Ÿ™‚ to promote learning this sefer.

    My name says what I am. Nobody. Just someone who minds his own business and gets on with life, happy to be a nobody that no-one else would give a second look at.

    Joseph hasnt posted here yet!!

    I was curious about his name because if he is as “frum” as he says he would go by Yosef, not Joseph.

    #1175382

    Joseph
    Participant

    SJSinNYC, rabbiofberlin advised me it is correctly spelled as Joseph (even though it is pronounced Yoseph.)

    Joseph – since when do you agree with ROB? (just teasing you!)

    #1175387

    mdlevine
    Member

    Some people are very clever,

    but with me it is not the same.

    So, I stuck with what I was given

    and thus, mdlevine, became my screen name.

    If I was clever and had sat and pondered,

    perhaps I would have chosen something not so bland.

    Like YW-Moderator,

    Oh please SJSinNYC. This thread was so neutral let it not become a war zone between Joseph & the Rabbi. By the way do you live in Berlin ROB?

    noitall, it was just a joke ๐Ÿ™‚

    #1175390

    I am what I am – yes there really are Jews outside of NY…

    I know I know its a difficult concept to grasp…

    #1175391

    squeak
    Participant

    Yes, we know there is life outside of NY, but since space travel is not yet widely available we have never seen such a person.

    #1175392

    Remember that the axis of the world runs through prospect park….and the world revolves around it!

    oh, and there are no “humans” outside of Nyers… no one speaks english as well as they do!

    Mine ought to be obvious. Cantorial music is my passion. Lawyering is what I do for a living.
