What should teens be doing in their free time? For example long motzei Shabbosim, when hanging out is hock and staying home is not an option
Specifically for girls, why is it considered “a look” to be out past dark
Should the pizza stores be reserved for the boys? Separate hours..? LolNovember 7, 2021 2:01 am at 2:01 am #2025522Zaphod BeeblebroxParticipant
What do you mean by ‘hanging out is hock’? And no, they should all be in the pizza shops together, maybe it’ll solve the shidduch crisis 🙂November 7, 2021 6:52 am at 6:52 am #2025546☕️coffee addictParticipant
Ask a girl from Baltimore I think the star k specifically says restaurants shouldn’t be open on motzei shabbos so what do they do?November 7, 2021 3:18 pm at 3:18 pm #2025683takahmamashParticipant

Places in Baltimore certainly are open on motzei Shabbat. What, you think people can’t go out and get pizza if they want?November 7, 2021 4:12 pm at 4:12 pm #2025733CTLAWYERParticipant
My teenage grandchildren often go bowling Motzei Shabbos. No pizza shops to hang out in here OOTNovember 7, 2021 4:37 pm at 4:37 pm #2025743
Build a backyard bonfire, have a BBQ, a kumzitz
Or have a treasure huntNovember 7, 2021 4:37 pm at 4:37 pm #2025742
The Torah only listed non kosher birds because most birds are kosher. Most pastimes are kosher, so just count the ones which aren’tNovember 7, 2021 5:04 pm at 5:04 pm #2025749bored_teen 💕Participant
Talk on the phone with a friend, babysit, study for tests/do homework, spend time with family,etc. The list is endless.November 7, 2021 8:06 pm at 8:06 pm #2025755AviraDeArahParticipant
Shimon….mah inyan shmitah etzel har sinai
I could just as easily say that the Torah only allows one type of insect, so only specific pasttimes are allowedNovember 7, 2021 8:06 pm at 8:06 pm #2025782CL18Participant
Learn Torah! there shouldn’t be anything else on our minds!
We’re so busy with trying to find other things to do but learn Torah that’s the problem!
And YES a girl can learn chumash with Rashi ramban etc.
There’s also some other mitzvos a girl can do.
Bottom line: we’re so far away from Yiddishkite and that why we’re looking to entertain ourselves
Hashem should help is all.
Wer all good don’t get upset about this it’s just a piece of mussar to accept and better ourselvesNovember 11, 2021 4:57 pm at 4:57 pm #2027247Zaphod BeeblebroxParticipant
That’s all nice and good, but it wasn’t the question.November 13, 2021 11:54 pm at 11:54 pm #2027813ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤParticipant
what does hok mean?November 14, 2021 7:57 am at 7:57 am #2027890
Avirah, that’s the difference between you and me.
And by the way, haven’t you ever heard of סימן וסיבה? Do you really think grasshoppers are the defining method for pastimes?November 14, 2021 7:57 am at 7:57 am #2027891
CL, this is Torah. We are discussing היתר ואיסור.
And stop banging a nail into everyone’s heads. People are allowed to be human. This is why people turn to lashon hara, because people like you tell them they aren’t allowed to do anything whatsoever.November 14, 2021 1:31 pm at 1:31 pm #2028099ujmParticipant

Shimon, i wasn’t saying i think that – i was saying that the same way one can make a comparison to birds which is unfounded, one can make an equally unfounded comparison the other way to insects. Neither is valid because “mah inyan shmitah etzel har sinai”, as the expression goes – goyim would say you’re comparing apples and oranges.November 14, 2021 6:58 pm at 6:58 pm #2028256Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant
Chess was already mentioned. R Feinstein played as a kid, but stopped at age 9 as he felt e is wasting time from learning. chess has extra benefit comparing with other games: if you all devote about same time to the game, then it is a fair measure of how smart each of you are. In our time of everyone being above average, it is healthy to know how good you are at thinking.
