  1. Yap him is right for his comment that’s just the way he DAVENs
    However AtarA has a point
    We must look within
    By us bettering our avoda these tzaros will not be neccesary

    Chasima tova to all

  2. When all Jews Ashkenazi, hasidish, sephardi will unite all probls will go away.. I feel the hatred around all Jews because of lack of unity.. WE are not united!!!!!!

  3. As in previous Tzores , many gedolim contribute it to talking by davening.

    Let’s start a campaign, NO Talking in Shul by Davening!!!!

    No if or buts!!!

  4. Y2r
    Kavod for a shul has gone down big time I agree. I can’t say that this the reason for anything but there’s no question that we need to change the way we behave in shul and how we daven. All the talking and quickie minyanim have to stop.

  5. Is it possible that no one down here knows what causes Tzaros to happen? Perhaps no one is in that category of Gadlus or Nvius these days?

    Has anyone figured out with total confidence the reason the Holocaust happened?

    Perhaps we ought to just be as good and Trading as we can and leave the philosophizing and blame game out of it because its only a guessing game.

  6. y2r, gedolim don’t CONTRIBUTE it to talking… the ATTRIBUTE it to talking… Believe me, the gedolim are not contributing to the problem by talking by davening. No ifs, ANDS, or buts.
