If someone chose not to attend the Siyim for whatever reason, is that a reason for their workmates to badger them afterwords about it, and embarras them publicly? I think not! Lets keep our personal lives out of the work place, can we?August 7, 2012 7:33 pm at 7:33 pm #889966emanParticipant
A Kollel Yungerman told me he specifically stayed home so he could learn. He said most B’nai Torah in the US were at the siyum(A great Kidush Hashem,but not shteiging) , the B’nai Torah in the E’Y were sleeping and someone had to keep the world going.August 7, 2012 7:56 pm at 7:56 pm #889967choppyParticipant
eman: He should’ve spoken to me first. I had the same idea… and was keeping the world running with my Torah for those 7 hours.August 7, 2012 8:02 pm at 8:02 pm #889968WolfishMusingsParticipant

Of course it’s not a reason. Embarrassing someone publicly is forbidden.

First of all there’s a concept of ????? ??? ?????. It was such a powerful program, it’s effects still materializing and blossoming. Secondly, who says one was not able to learn at the siyum? The speeches were also learning.August 7, 2012 8:09 pm at 8:09 pm #889970working harderMember
a mamin: please tell me you’re a troll and that this is not a real post.
Are you for real posting about your workmates badgering you?August 7, 2012 9:22 pm at 9:22 pm #889971WIYMember
You are correct. Some people just dont know how to behave. I know other people who didn’t attend and they were all harassed by friends and family. You dont know whats doing by yenem and you have no idea why they didnt go and even if they didnt want to go they have that right. Its very mean to make people feel stupid and put them on the defensive for such a thing.August 7, 2012 9:36 pm at 9:36 pm #889972a maminParticipant
No, it wasnt me. It was a friend, and yes he was badgered that he was disgusting! I would never have stood for that comment in my office, and no one wouldve said it.August 8, 2012 2:28 am at 2:28 am #889973KozovMember
Kollel Yungerman and choppy(?), its so krum I find it a bit disgusting.August 8, 2012 3:04 am at 3:04 am #889974147Participant
Some people didn’t go, because they are still allergic to English & addicted to Yiddish.
Then some people didn’t go, because they are Availim or had Yohrzeit that day or/& evening, and knew they would not get the Omud for Mincha nor Ma’ariv.
Then some people have young children, and a babysitter until so late into the nite is very expensive, and hard to find.August 8, 2012 3:42 am at 3:42 am #889975choppyParticipant
The Yiddish crowd was there in full force, constituting a majority of the audience. 4 out of the 8 rabbonim who spoke, spoke in Yiddish.August 8, 2012 4:25 am at 4:25 am #889976147Participant
of those 4, 2 went onto continue in English:- The Novominske shlita, and the Lakewood Rosh Yeshiva.
