Not sure what you mean by “factors affecting parnassa”? Do you mean that depending on which side of the “vs.” you fall on for each of these things affects the parnassa God grants you? You you mean that the act of earning a parnassa will affect which side of the “vs.” you fall out on?
Please explain.November 17, 2010 2:38 pm at 2:38 pm #963239chesednameParticipant
Thanks for posting.
That was a nice chesed!November 17, 2010 3:54 pm at 3:54 pm #963240
It means that Hishtadlus in parnassah doesn’t mean you will have parnassah. It. Means that there are other factors at play that can affect your parnassa. Which could in some cases explain why some people are highly educated with advanced degrees and out of a job and accepting welfare. (Your Hishtadlus in Parnassah is the smallest factor in procuring a parnassah for your family)

I’m very unimpressed with Nahman Hassidim. They usually are a source of great hillul hashem, and traffic.July 1, 2013 4:12 pm at 4:12 pm #963251mewhoParticipant

There are Breslov Chassidim and Nanachs. Breslov chassidim by and large are Ehrliche yidden. Nanachs by and large are crazy drug addicts and criminals and made up a religion called Nanach that has NOTHING to do with true Breslov, has nothing to do with true Chassidus, and has nothing really to do with Judaism. They are unfortunately dirtying the name of the holy Rabbi Nachman Mibreslov who was a Tzaddik yesod Olam.July 2, 2013 2:24 am at 2:24 am #963254jewishfeminist02Member
To “bump” is to write an arbitrary or unnecessary comment on an old thread (usually just the word “bump”) in order to “bump” it up to “recent posts” so people will read it and revive the discussion.July 2, 2013 11:58 pm at 11:58 pm #963255
Wow, I was SURE it’s been 3 years, guess it was only 2?
