BIG QUESTIONS:

(Sunday, February 5th, 2006)

TONIGHT:

I have a serious question to ask the oilam.

As many of you know, the Lakewood “FREEZER” is opening up in approximately one week.

For those of you who are wondering what the “FREEZER” is, I will give you a brief explanation. When boys come to learn in BMG the Hanhola does not want there to be hefkeiros with boys coming there with the intention of getting married right away and shter the z’man. So they instituted the “FREEZER”. This means that if a boy arrives in BMG after Succos he can’t start dating until Tu Bisvat (or according to some poskim, the “Shevua Sh’chal Bo”!!). There is one loophole and thats if the boy is in fact dating a girl BEFORE he arrives at BMG he can place the girls name into an envelope and if and when he gets engaged they open up the envelope and make sure it’s the same name. [What would happen if a boy would Chas V'sholom get engaged to a DIFFERENT girl, I have no answer for].

Now this coming Sunday night, Reb Yehuda Jacobs Shlita, one of the Chosheva BMG Masgichim will be giving his twice a year “shmooze” to all the boys who will be exiting the freezer on dating tips. They include where to go, where not to go, how to act etc. It’s a very nice thing.

Now comes the kicker.

As most of you know, this Sunday night is Superbowl Sunday.

So I have a few questions.

Where will the oilam be, at R’ Jacobs Shiur? Or a Superbowl party? Or at the Superbowl itself? Perhaps some guys will come to the Shiur during the “Halftime Show”? Or maybe R’ Jacobs will be giving his own Halftime Show?
