Yeshivas should have their own secular education so they can control what to teach, otherwise you are right the government will force us to attend public schools.
ולא יכלו אחיו לענות אותו כי נבהלו מפניו and the brothers could not answer him because they became frightened infront of him. The Midrash says, Aba Kohen Bardleh says wow to us what will do when when each of us will be admonished according to his being. What does this mean? I think, that a person is judged above according to his own behavior. If is conceeded, then he is judged above on a higher level, what his responsibilities are towards
Hashem, but if he is humble, he is judged on a lower level as his responsibiity being a human being.December 12, 2018 5:03 pm at 5:03 pm in reply to: The world is in a state of Geula- and don’t misunderstand us! #1643352
CS, I am answering the meaning of the Zohar. The Torah encourages us to unite ואהבת לרעך כמוך the Tanya says that he is like you by having the same holy neshama, and be one which makes us one with Hashem as demonstrated above. It says מי כעמך ישראל כוי אחד this is the same one as it says כי חלק ה’ עמו Hashem is part of his nation.December 12, 2018 5:03 pm at 5:03 pm in reply to: The world is in a state of Geula- and don’t misunderstand us! #1643357
coffee addict, we have to satisfy both since Aisov has to fall in the hand of Yosef but Moshiach comes from Dovid. We have to build the Beis Hamikdash together with Moshiach on which will come the one from fire.
Avi K, This MB would answer the Tosfas Yom Tov’s kashye about laining on shabbos and not worrying about carrying the Sefer Torah. People go to it and not that it goes to the people.
I believe in demand side economics by putting more money in the pocket of people, consumption increases and thereby investment increases. Supply side economics is voo-doo economics where there is no incentive to invest. This type of economics advocated by Democrats is closer to the Torah than the sink and swim type advocated by Republicans. Avi K, raising minimum wage gradually will not create unemployment.December 12, 2018 8:16 am at 8:16 am in reply to: The world is in a state of Geula- and don’t misunderstand us! #1642350
Eli Y,, The mitzva is being in the sukkah, קיום המצוה and not tthe going into the sukkoh, מעשה המצוה so the consciousness in sleeping doesn’t matter.December 12, 2018 12:13 am at 12:13 am in reply to: The world is in a state of Geula- and don’t misunderstand us! #1642246
coffee addict, your reason for Eli Y, I don’t think is correct because RMA above needs an exemption to clear someone from the mitzva of sleeping in the sukkah, indicating that normally if the exemption does not apply there is a mitzva, but his reasoning eliminates the mitzva altogether.December 11, 2018 10:32 pm at 10:32 pm in reply to: The world is in a state of Geula- and don’t misunderstand us! #1642197
Eli Y, I think what DY is saying is that an exemption applies under some circumstances and does not apply under other circumstances, but over here this mitzva has no possibility because it always applies since it is not possible to be conscious and sleep so the mitzva will never occur.December 11, 2018 10:27 pm at 10:27 pm in reply to: The world is in a state of Geula- and don’t misunderstand us! #1642179

The Aroch Chaim in Parshas Tetzaveh says in the beginning on taking pure olive oil that the last redemption will come with the strength of Moshe Rabbenu. It could be that is why his name is not mentioned in the Parsha because it is a hidden strength. The Yaaros Devash explains the gemorah ולא ידע כי בז’ אדר מת משה ובז’ אדר נולד משה the fact that he died on zayin ador he knew but he explaines that after he died he is reborn spiritually when the
redemption comes. The Tana Debai Eliyahu says that this strength comes when we are mechadesh something.December 11, 2018 5:02 pm at 5:02 pm in reply to: The world is in a state of Geula- and don’t misunderstand us! #1641999

YeshivishRockStar, what do you do with הים אם בקלו תשמעו? The Ramban predicted the coming of Moshiach in the beginning of Bereishis.

I took chemistry in Chasan Sofer and asked the teacher, what is the use for this? He said to me, you are able to see the greatness of G-d. He created a small solar system in every atom.

As I mentioned many times that extremes are not good. If the yeshivas avoid secular education altogether, then the government will require extreme measures in secular education like six hours. They don’t want the students after they grow up to rely on welfare because they can’t find a job to support themselves sufficiently.December 11, 2018 1:29 pm at 1:29 pm in reply to: Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah Fighting NY Department of Education #1641622December 11, 2018 1:27 pm at 1:27 pm in reply to: Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah Fighting NY Department of Education #1641612
Joseph, I went to Chasidishe Yeshivas, Adas Yereim Wiener for elementary school and Chasan Sofer, HS, with proper english classes graduating with an academic degree with all the regents. I went to Brooklyn College majoring in Math and in Computers graduating with a BS degree. Afterwards, went to NYU Courant Institute in Mathematics for 12 credits.December 11, 2018 1:26 pm at 1:26 pm in reply to: The world is in a state of Geula- and don’t misunderstand us! #1641595
coffee addict, thanks for straightening me out, but Rebbi placed it Pirkei Avos to teach us a good lesson to learn at a young age Shabbos 21a גירסא דינקותא, when a person has a good memory, he writes on a new paper rather than at an old age when he writes on an erased paper as the memory goes.December 11, 2018 12:21 pm at 12:21 pm in reply to: The world is in a state of Geula- and don’t misunderstand us! #1641518
‘אלישע בן אבוי in Pirkei Avos speaks about his own concerns. He must have learned Torah at the later years when there is a danger to forget because the memory weakens with age as writing on an erased paper compared to the early years when you write on a new paper.December 11, 2018 12:01 pm at 12:01 pm in reply to: The world is in a state of Geula- and don’t misunderstand us! #1641543

The seven lights of the menorah were against seven chochmas were the Torah was in the middle all facing the center because all other chochmas require the Torah knowledge e.g. the Rambam says in, shemona perokim, that illnes c’v comes from the body getting out of equilibrium. Freud’s Super Igo, Igo and Id comes from the Torah.December 11, 2018 10:38 am at 10:38 am in reply to: Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah Fighting NY Department of Education #1641495

CS, ישראל ואורייתא וקב’ה חד הוא what does this mean? It says והוא באחד ומי ישיבנה it should have said אחד says the Shlah Hakadosh that we must unite and be one with Hashem like we say שמע ישראל ה’ אלקינו ה’ אחד the meaning of shema is to unite like it says וישמע שאול את העם meanig he united them. This can be demonstrated to the Jews are all around a circle and Hashem is the middle and our purpose in life is to make the circle smaller through Torah/the Rebbe’s teachings and unite into one point with the center. Everyone originally is equal distant from the center.December 11, 2018 9:59 am at 9:59 am in reply to: The world is in a state of Geula- and don’t misunderstand us! #1641389December 10, 2018 10:11 pm at 10:11 pm in reply to: The world is in a state of Geula- and don’t misunderstand us! #1641135
The Chasam Sofer in sefer Chut Hameshulosh says that if someone like himself was picked as posek hador, he is helped from heaven that he should not make a mistake. He thought twice that he made a mistake and retracted his psak, but it turned out that he was correct originally.
CTLAWYER, it is a common practice in modern english to verbilize nouns e.g. authored, loaned, impacted
Shakespeare should have said, Neither a loaner nor a borrower be. The correct word is lend not loan.
coffee addict, what Hashem Yisborach does to us is more appreciated accumutavely, from birth to the present as I posted above, and that can only be done by keeping our precious memories intact.
In the Megilla, Achashverus appreciated favors done to him and therefore created the book of memories, recognizing that memories are precious to be able to show appreciation and thereby Mordechai was elevated.
coffee addict, from your posts it looks like that you don’t seem to appreciate your memories.
coffee addict, you missed the whole point. First you must be young so you don’t have too many memories, second nothing extra ordinary happened to you and third you are taking everything that happened to you for granted believing that all of it you deserve.
The gemorah Taanis 24a where the father was upset on his son for asking figs before its time because he was matriach Hashem for something unnecessary, therefore we are only permitted to daven for something necessary. That is the reason that the man above was degraded for the miracle of nursing because it really was not required as it could have been done by a woman.
Over here by the oil, they showed their love to Hashem not to rely on impure oil, so He also showed his love to them by creating the miracle. Therefore, we follow the mehadrin min hamehadrin which we usually don’t do.
A miracle where its probability of hapenning is practically infinitesimal shows the love Hashem has for his children the Bnei Yisroel to change the nature for willing to serve Him diligently. The gemora says on the man who was able to nurse how ugly it is that the nature was changed for him, so normally Hashem does not change the nature.
The modern called it חג המכבים emphasizing the battle over the oil forgetting that Hashem helped in order to gain spirituality recognizing the importance of the Oral Law which was validated through the miracle of the oil that became impure through the decree of chazal.
This herd immunity is similar to a king who told his servants to bring wine to fill a barrel. One individual thought why should I bring wne? I will bring water and nobody will notice, but if everyone wil do that, we end up with water. Similarly, if people do not immunize relying on others, they won’t have any immunity.
It says באבוד רשעים רנה we praise Hashem for the destruction of the rashaim, why? It says ויאמינו בה’ ובמשה עבדו they believed in Hashem and his servant Moshe, they recognized the importance of reward and punishment, hashgacha of Hashem and therefore, אז ישיר משה so Moshe sang the praises to Hashem, but the malochim had no benefit and nothing to gain so they were not allowed to sing.

cmberzon, I think you are missing a comma as you don’t want to say on chazal the expression lowlife.
The Pri Chadash says that the winning the battle was the neis the furst day. Others say that has happened before so it was nothing special and the importance was the oli to restore spirituality.
coffee adict, what are you going to do with memories you cannot recreate because the individual is not here anymore or you were saved from illness or from other tragegy?
Thank you ZionGate you expressed my sentiments very eloquently. coffee gate stop kidding and destroying something precious.
coffee addict, memories remind us of all the good that Hashem Yisborach has bestowed on all of us through out our life from birth to the present.
coffee addict, maybe you don’t understand me because you don’t want to. It has nothing to do with your memory but your mind.
The answer about memories or a million dollars is not that simple. When a person reaches a ripe old age, he has much to thank Hashem which no one else can fulfil only himself. This is why the chazal had us say Modim Derabonon and it is not enough the Modim of the Baal Tefila . It says מה אשיב לה’ כל תגמלהי עלי that responsibility rests on me and no one else can fulfil it. Those memories are precious and for no price are you willing to sell it.
When Pharaoh dreams he says הננו עומד על היאור but when he tells Yosef he says הננו עומד על שפת היאר the Bnei Yisoschor says that he wanted to test Yosef if he knows the dream, so Yosef said שפת לא ידעתי אשמע I hear a sefas that I don’t know what it means.
