I love that story, laskern. Thank you for sharing it.
ZionGate: Traveling for business/parnassa is a different halachic shaila than traveling for pleasure. Especially since one can travel for pleasure at alternative vacation places that DO have minyanim three times a day.

Do you have the right to work if you’re not a mentsch?
Beis HaTalmud (in Bensonhurst.)
There are two mods. Joseph and another mod.
The rest are alter-egos of Joseph.
I may be off about the specific examples, but the halacha gives specific examples about which types fall into which category.
Jews are tht default, unless otherwise specified. Pru Urvu only applies to Jews.
Mammele: Halacha, i.e. S”A, gives specific examples of each. If I recall correctly suffocating is considered to have time to regret, which we assume he did. Hanging is considered immediate.
Especially was the wrong word. But you point it out well. It is the man with the mitzvah. And if the woman is a gentile then the baby is a gentile. So aside from the terrible aveiros of living with her, any births aren’t fruitful and multiplying the Jewish people.
Because you know that then his buddies will kill you anyways as well as kill thousands of other Jews — immediately. Other Jews who might have otherwise survived, but certainly many of those that were then immediately killed would have survived longer than an immediate fiery burnt to death.
And those thousands and thousands of others who were immediately killed did not acquiesce to your taking action that will result in their immediate deaths.
Especially if it is the woman who is the gentile, thus resulting in a birth of a child who is not Jewish.
Mammele: According to Halacha the way we determine if he regretted the suicide, and therefore we don’t treat it as a suicide, is if the method of suicide does not result in immediate death, thus giving him time to have regretted starting the suicide even though he could no longer stop himself from dying. If the suicide method results in immediate death, giving no time for regret, it is halachicly treated as a suicide.August 9, 2018 8:49 am at 8:49 am in reply to: If a pig was genetically modified to chew its cud, would it be kosher? #1571359
The Gemora says Rabi Akiva was wrong for supporting Bar Kochba. If I recall, I believe even Rabi Akiva was moda as such in the end.
Who with big enough shoes has said that we now change Jewish practice from thorought the ages as a result of the Holocaust? You cited Rav Ziemba, but a) the source for that is not entirely clearly accurate and b) even if assume the apocryphal quote as accurate, it is a single source going against the entire corpus of Jewish rabbinic history up to present.
You admit that a band of Jews with guns can’t fight the Czar’s army but you think a couple hundred Jews with guns can beat the German war machine? You argue that both opinions are legitimate and you’re not saying either is more correct than the other, but how can you fathom that a couple hundred armed Jews can initiate a gun fight against the Nazis when the inevitable result — and which occurred — was the immediate murder of 6,000 Jews in the ghetto, who never agreed to die as a result of the several hundred armed Jews who took on the Germans, by their being burned to death, the most horrific form of death, when they burnt down the ghetto house by house with the Jews in them?
As you know, if someone kills someone who was mortally ill and expected to die within minutes or hours before he was killed, the killer is guilty of murder and subject to the death penalty. Even if you assume most of the ghetto residents wouldn’t have survived the war anyway (even putting aside the reality that some likely would have survived), their being killed earlier than otherwise — even it is were “only” months earlier — is a horrific crime.
Who have a couple hundred people the right to engage in action resulting in the early murder of thousands and thousands of Jews?
No. A vacation is not a shas hadchak.August 8, 2018 2:04 pm at 2:04 pm in reply to: Is the goverment responsible to implicate the 7 mitzvos #1570904
Gain, for violating any of the seven mitzvos, the penalty is death. For violating other laws the Goyim set up, the penalty can be something else.
Gaon, I’m not Satmar.
1. What is your authoritative source of your alleged quote from Rav Ziemba?
2. As Shopping pointed out, the rabbonim by and large opposed armed conflict in the ghetto when there was no prospects of benefits of it saving Jewish lives and there was very much prospects of it immediately costing countless Jewish lives.
3. Throughout Jewish history, as noted by Chazal in the Gemora before the Churban and the zealots looking to fight the Romans against the admonishins of Chazal, Rav Yochonon Been Zakai, Beitar and countless other times recorded in Jewish history before and after of us not engaging in a fight we couldn’t win.
ubiq: 1. Don’t put words in my mouth or create strawmen. Nobody said anything about if “Jews were peaceful and listened”. Refraining from taking up armed fighting against an army you cannot defeat is not equivalent to listening to what you’re told.
2. “obviously, though that was never the goal”.
If that wasn’t the goal, what WAS the goal? Martyring themselves and ten thousand others as “heroes” for “fighting back”, as the Zionists glorify them for? Otherwise what did they expect or hope to accomplish. It is clearly yourself who fails to grasp history, the Holocaust or the futility of shooting when the obvious result will be immediate death of oneself and many many others.
Because the Satmar Rebbe is a Tzadik Yesod Olam. A leader of the leaders. He was one of three Gedolei HaDor (the other two being Rav Aharon and Rav Moshe) who built the Torah community in America into what it is today. The Satmar Rebbe’s higher gadlus was held from by everyone across the Torah world spectrum; even by those who disagreed with him on some issues.August 8, 2018 12:05 pm at 12:05 pm in reply to: Is the goverment responsible to implicate the 7 mitzvos #1570794
Yes, every goy and goyishe government is obligated to follow all Sheva Mitzvos Bnei Noach fully and completely, upon pain of death (even for the simple mitzvos such as not stealing or eating from a live animal), as well as is required to implement the 7 mitzvos as their laws and make them fully enforceable in their courts.
ubiq, it was clear from even before it began that the Warsaw Uprising could not possibly defeat the German Army. It was clear before it began that it could only result in a massacre of the Jews in the ghetto. And that there was no possible positive outcome from having an uprising that could save Jewish lives rather than result in the immediate massacre of thousands and thousands of Jews.
Jones, who I never listened too, appears to be a loony bin. But being a loony bin is not illegal. Big Tech, which is run by liberals, has decided to censure those they disagree with. Which is, as private corporations, their legal right. But it should be called out for what it is. They do not shut down and delete the liberal loonies and liars. Of which their are very many on their platforms.August 7, 2018 7:12 pm at 7:12 pm in reply to: EPIC! The Great “Color Break Out” Of 2018 & The Six Flags 3 Million Dollar Fine #1570527
The $2,051,575.00 figure for the supposed loss is an obvious and easily spottable elementary mathematical error that is very obvious when first reading it, that should have immediately let anyone know this is phony.
The judge is a wimp. If this happened in my courtroom I’d have had put soap in his mouth.
Like in the good ole days.
ubiq: There’s nothing unserious that the Warsaw Uprising was a grievious error on the part of those who organized it.
This is the worst thing that President Donald Trump, may he have arichas yomim vshonim, has done. May the Ribono Shel Olam continue to bless him with much hatzlacha and brocha.
Mom knows best.August 5, 2018 12:32 pm at 12:32 pm in reply to: President Donald Trump, Oheiv Yisroel Par Excellence #1569213
We should all add a special tefila in our shemona esrei for the success of President Donald Trump.
We’re supposed to reach Mars first.
Simcha613: Most frum Yidden will stand for the America anthem because they are American patriots; not “so as not to offend people.” They happily want to stand for the Medina Shel Chesed, as Rav Moshe called it. OTOH, the atheist state of Israel, born and living in sin, carries no such allegiance among the Bnei Torah who opposed its creation and the Zionist’s continual policies. The frum living in Eretz Yisroel (that you’re complaining about) are not Israeli patriots.
If Christians are offended that a Jew doesn’t bow to the Pope when meeting him, as is customarily expected of those who meet him, we will still not grant the Pope that honor when meeting him in order not to offend others.

Welcome to the 21st century.
Rav Shach was a strong proponent of Yiddish. He told the American yeshivos to learn in Yiddish.
Was I correct, my dear Curiosity?
Curiosity, you were still a teen when you started posting six years ago? Never woulda guessed how young you are!
Before you know it, we’ll have the return of feivel, squeak and mosherose. Then it’ll be Coffee Room circa 2008.
YY, that doesn’t make much sense. The very point of this topic is to tell people to stop expecting informal quick paced internet postings to be viewed with a legal microscope.
WB OOM! You’ve been gone for decades… What’s doing?
I never thought you to be a peasant, RY23.
Let’s make a L’Chaim! (Don’t sweat; I’m not suggesting that you skip tachnun…)
YY: Are you looking to take over haifagirl’s old job as the in-house language police?
This thread is way below my intelligence.
“If your optomotrist is very specific and thorough”
What does that mean? Which optomotrists aren’t specific on a prescription?
How does Zenni compare to other online prescription glasses stores?

CTRebbe: Please share which cities.
And how are those yeshivos dealing with it? And how are the out of town children in those yeshivos coping with this tragedy?
