    Hashem created the State. The Zionists were just His messengers.

    What does that mean? Surely you don’t mean that the fact that it exists means it’s good. There are plenty of things which exist (or existed) which we don’t consider good, yet could only come to be through Hashem’s will.

    Therefore i am requesting that someone kindly send me the citation in the Igros Moshe where this very subject matter is discussed.

    There is no teshuvah which discusses which shavets are muttar. Various talmidim of R’ Moshe’s have different opinions about which are muttar, probably based on which shavers they observed him approving and their interpretations of how it would apply to today’s shavers.

    Yes, the gartel does go on the outside of the cover of a posul sefer torah as I’m sure people have witnessed in shul. What’s your point in making that statement here?

    It’s a good response to ubiquitin.

    The Frierdiker Rebbe (1880 – 1950) once said regarding why Lubavitcher Bochurim don’t wear a Gartel over their jacket, (we do wear one before marriage, but under the shirt) “מיינע בחורים זיינען נישט פסול’ע ספרי תורה” – My Bochurim aren’t Posul Sifrei Torah.

    Implying that married men are?

    So why is a talis different than a one wearing purple hair and a nose ring etc, in terms of arousing any antisemitism..

    I don’t recommend that either

    I once heard a drasha from R’ Yechiel Perr, Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva of Far Rockaway who explained that wearing a talis in a visible way in the street might have caused an anti-Semitic response. I think he quoted R’ Yaakov that it was proper no to wear the talis openly.

    It’s a מגן אברהם in סי’ כ”ה, also brought in משנה ברורה.

    Meno: think of it like how in Litvish Yeshivos the bochurim don’t usually wear ties on weekdays, but their rebbeim do. The Rosh Yeshiva wears a longer coat at most places. We all have concepts of bochurim dressing less formally than their superiors for gaavah kind of reasons.

    Tieless is informal.

    Shirt untucked is unkempt.

    Bad example, but in concept, yes.

    It’s a bad example because we know full well that football is muttar (unless you want to kler maybe tackle football is a sakana…) and that recognized poskim have allowed and encouraged participation in sports (at least in chutz la’aretz…).

    However, a psak that tipping is mandatory when it is the norm is fully consistent with regular dinei Choshen Mishpat cannot be ignored unless you have a psak otherwise.

    @DasYochid
    Do you think any experienced adult should work for $4 per hour from the employer and have to live on the generousity of customers?

    It depends on the value he is providing to his employer. If he is an experienced, capable worker with marketable skills, employers will compete for his services, and he’ll get paid a lot more than that.

    You made two points there – one about pay amount per hour, and one about putting the burden on the customer. I don’t necessarily disagree about the latter.

    You can’t assume anyone disagrees, true, but you can’t assume anyone agrees either, in the absence of them so saying.

    I didn’t see anything about Rav Belsky commenting on this issue.

    I posted a link above

    But even if he did you can’t assume other poskim who didn’t comment on the issue necessarily agree with him.

    Au contraire, you can’t assume anyone disagrees without reliable information.

    Tipping is totally optional.

    No it isn’t.

    http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/tipping-waiter#post-687480

    Maybe if kosher prices weren’t too high, people would have more money to tip. Stick to your job.

    If you can’t afford the tip, don’t go to a restaurant. The price of kosher food in no way justifies withholding the waiters their due.

    Mammele, I believe he made a mistake when he wrote the boy wasn’t a carrier. His parents never tested.

    Yes, the way I understand it, it wouldn’t make sense to say that he actually has Tay Sachs but isn’t a carrier.

    Thank you, Winnie.

    In other words, perhaps the parents were carriers, but in the child it won’t be picked up by tests because it needs to be developed before it’s picked up by tests…

    If the genetics are the same, the test results should be the same.

    Sorry but I don’t grasp what is being said here? Am I understanding properly that Dor Yeshurim can not test for LOTS?

    According to how I understand Winnie’s very informative post, the test would show positive for Tay Sachs, but not specifically for Late Onset Tay Sachs.

    The Nitei Gavriel in perek beis, halacha tes (hilchos chanuka) brings down a psak regarding an almana who is supported from nicsei yesomim, that the yesomim must provide her with funds for neiros chanuka and enough for her to light according to the mehadrin opinion if she chooses. His sources are brought down.

    Are you addressing the issue of women lighting Chanukah candles? Everyone agrees that a woman living alone is obligated to light.

    The rebbetzen refused to give it to him during the year of time when their was no clear successor to Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak (presumably because he was not yet confirmed as the seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe).

    Or don’t get a watch at all. I didn’t get a watch in the yichud room and, according to most poskim, my marriage is still valid despite that.

    You don’t need to spend $1500 on a watch.

    There are a bunch of websites which sell watches at wholesale prices, and you can get a very respectable watch for $500-$800.

    I have said at least twice, that if there is even one comment, or one article, that had milim bishim, which means lashon hara, sinas chinam, whatever it is, any kind of thing that is asur to say, it is therefore not worth the entire web site. Are we clear on that?

    I’m not ch”v defending l”h, but why is that true? If someone once spoke l”h in a house, does that make the entire house worthless? If a person ch”v speaks l”h, does that make his whole life worthless?

    It’s your assumption that they’re trying to broadcast their heilgkeit. Why aren’t you dan l’kaf z’chus that they’re trying to be mechazek their kids (or themselves) in trying to uphold higher standards against the tide?

    The fact that people only want to daven in “THAT” shul is very likely because they daven better, there’s less talking, or a better environment. The fact that they only use “THAT” hashgocha is likely because they have higher standards.

    I’m sorry if you’re encountering people who are being baalei gsavah about their standards of frumkeit, but it’s so unfair to generalize.

    There is a difference between quiletly going to the store and only buying chalav yisroel products, that basically only your family knows about and it, Telling the whole world what a Helig yid you are because Chalav Stam never touched your lips

    With exception of Joseph on the CR, I have almost never encountered such a thing.

    The closest I’ve seen to that is in kids, particularly those who recently took on chumros their parents didn’t. They usually get over that within a couple of years.

    Does it ever occur to you that it is somewhat amazing that there are 60,000 Jews willing to undertake an arduous trip to the middle of the Ukraine. To leave their families, their homes, their comfort to spend a week there for Yom tov. To pay lots of money to find somewhere to stay, for the flights, the food for Yom tov, the Mikveh, a place in a shul to daven, taxis etc. Is there another gathering anywhere like it? Is there another gathering at home anything like it?

    Did it ever occur to you that some of their families don’t appreciate being abandoned for Yom Tov?

    Being מושך בערלתו is quite a drastic step. Not doing do doesn’t prove you’re happy with the מילה.

    I’ll give you an example. You go to buy a used car. You find one that’s affordable to you, large enough for your family, and the model you want, with low mileage.

    The only problem is, it’s green, and you really don’t like green.

    You’ve checked four dealers, and nobody else has the model you want with the other factors that make you want this one. So you go ahead and buy it. It doesn’t prove that you like green, it just proves that you don’t hate it enough to spend the extra effort, time and/or money to find the car you want in a different color.

    I dont see the connection. One is a personal bracha and one is a klall bracha.

    Why would that make a difference? Either way, it’s a bracha which the person answering amen could never say on their own, yet can still affirm someone else’s bracha.

    Also why would you answer a question with s question?
