My second seder chavrusa is dripping yeshivish, what? So today, in middle of seder (es chato’ay ani mazkir hayom), he starts making fun of me, and the fact I grew up in a more chilled environment. So he exclaims,”Ya, whudever, you grew up eating McDonalds and Hershy bars and..and…what are those orange things called? Umm…Umm…oh yeah, reeses peanubudder cubes!!”
And I died of laughter.May 12, 2013 9:29 pm at 9:29 pm #956039wanderingchanaParticipant
Is it a Yeshivish thing to make fun of someone and remind them of having eaten treif in their past? Is it a FFB thing? Or is it just a lack of good middos?May 12, 2013 11:07 pm at 11:07 pm #956040batsevenParticipant

I have a question by which no offense is meant- but I have always been curious- what’s the deal with everyone in brooklyn having to stare at a folded newspaper no matter where it is (American/goy papers, not Jewish publications)- whether it’s half folded in the dispensaries that sell them or if its quarter-folded in the little red home delivery bag, I always see frum people on the way to shul stop dead in their tracks to bend over and read whatever letters are visible on the exposed surface, even if it means awkardly standing bent over someone’s front doorstep squinting at the ground until they finish reading whatever is on there..
If you do this- please explain what the fascination is and what you’ve gotten out of it
If you don’t- please tell me I’m not alone and you’ve seen this a lot too!May 13, 2013 1:33 am at 1:33 am #956049ChesMember
Brooklyn Chareidim dont have tv, so newspapers represent a large portion of their news sources. (It is also true outside of Brooklyn but 1) they arent as concentrated outside of Brooklyn so it less noticable 2) outside of Brooklyn there are less opportunities to read the front page of a newspaper you dont own.)May 13, 2013 1:51 am at 1:51 am #956050

EOM I’ve only seen them try and read Hamodia in the street boxes. I get to newspapers delivered daily – not tabloids – and with the exception of Yiddin opening them on Shabbos to look at the sports scores, I’ve never seen Yiddin stare at the papers.May 13, 2013 2:36 am at 2:36 am #956054VogueMember
Where I live, they have plenty of newspaper dispensaries, but most people these days read the paper online and pay for the e-subscription.May 13, 2013 3:08 am at 3:08 am #956055147ParticipantMay 13, 2013 3:22 am at 3:22 am #956056crisisoftheweekMember
I love that Hershey bars get equated with McDonald’s.
Hilarious.May 13, 2013 4:22 am at 4:22 am #956057
DY: Meant in good humor is irrelevant. The worst of insults are often meant in good humor. Taken in good humor might change things, but how can you say that L’mafrea whether or not your action was Assur depends on if he cares or not? Maybe if you know each other well and know that this insult isn’t an insult it’s okay (there seems to be a wide number of Shittos about nicknames and whether it’s okay even if he’s Mochel and presumably it’s the same issue).
Also, I’m amused that McDonald’s and Hershy’s [sic] are equated.May 13, 2013 5:56 am at 5:56 am #956058haifagirlParticipant

Sam, which Gemara, the one about Vichikisem Bashem or Lista Bilistayusei Yada?
(I hope this is not Onoas Devarim, but I found Daas Yochid’s Chukas Hagoyim good and funny.)May 13, 2013 7:25 am at 7:25 am #956060
lol. I was actually a little insulted for a second, but it was funny. It’s fine, though, because I hold there’s no Ona’as D’varim on an anonymous forum. (Unless you’re using real names or things like Facebook and Twitter, there shouldn’t be Ona’as D’varim on the internet. The internet is entirely habited by trolls. If you don’t have a thick digital skin, Ihu Hu D’afsid Anafshei.)May 13, 2013 4:43 pm at 4:43 pm #956061
just to clarify, i grew up frum all my life and never ate treif, though my family does it chalav stam.
dripping yeshivish is a common expression, and i happen to be pretty yeshivish myself, i just thought his mistake was hilarious.
i wasnt at all insulted, we were making fun of each other.
didnt mean to insult anone here. sheesh.May 13, 2013 5:20 pm at 5:20 pm #956062May 13, 2013 5:21 pm at 5:21 pm #956063May 13, 2013 5:45 pm at 5:45 pm #956064WIYMember

OOM, no milchig meals? What religion are you from? Do you have smicha too? ^_^
I once had a quick fleishig meal after the early morning kiddush and then woke up 6 hours later for cheesecake 🙂
If my cheesecake is white with dripping black chocolate does that make it dripping yeshivish?May 13, 2013 8:37 pm at 8:37 pm #956067
I didn’t grow up eating Hersheys and Haagen Dazs. I still eat them. And I haven’t grown up yet ^_^
About the newspaper thing, I see this a lot on Shabbos morning with people trying to check sports scores (perhaps the news too though that doesn’t usually change much between Friday afternoon and Shabbos morning).
If they are looking at a Jewish paper than it is probably because they’re curious to see it but don’t buy it themselves.
If you are seeing this daily I would say that it is just regular curiosity to know what’s going on in the world. Goyim would do this too if they hadn’t read the paper yet. They read it first thing when they get up with their breakfast while Jews go straight to davening so don’t always have a “newspaper seder”.May 13, 2013 9:51 pm at 9:51 pm #956068

Hey 42 – that’s what we did last year and are going to do again – the big people who stayed up the whole night plus the big girls, we all made kiddush right after netz daavening and had chopped liver with our challah to satisfy the requirement for a fleishig meal. Then we all got up 6 hours later and had lasagna, quiche, and bagels/lox/cc – a rarity here in EY. Such a fun meal. We’re going to do it again tomorrow, byz”H.May 14, 2013 4:05 am at 4:05 am #956070May 17, 2013 2:30 am at 2:30 am #956071

I miss the pralines and cream flavor havent seen it in ages!May 23, 2013 9:55 pm at 9:55 pm #956076
takah- we all know that bagels here arent as good, cream cheese isnt comparable, and lox is something like 20 sha’ch for 4 pieces. so having the real deal is quite the rarity.May 23, 2013 10:40 pm at 10:40 pm #956077NechomahParticipant
Yeah, and forget about chumros like waiting for the new chometz from after Pesach (no lasagna noodles this year, whereas last year they had them and I also can’t buy the ready made graham cracker crusts or the premade pie crusts in the freezer section) and also for us folks who only eat a few of the hechsherim available it’s not always easy to find the stuff. My daughter i still looking for cinnamon raisin bagels like her grandfather z”l used to buy when we would visit the U.S. We started making our own cream cheese last year with pretty good success. I actually found cream cheese with a B’datz Eida Chareidis hechsher recently. It was a little stiffer than what I make (probably don’t let it drain long enough) but for the cost, I’ll deal with a little bit of a looser product.
Actually, as far as lox goes, I heard that there is a store on Beit HaDefus near Gutnik that makes the stuff and all of the other smoked fish products. I was told that you could get lox trimmings for 20 sha”ch a kilo, which is a tremendous price. I’m actually going to be not far from there next week, so maybe I’ll stop over and see what’s available. If it’s true, it would make an awesome lox spread with homemade cc, no?May 24, 2013 6:40 am at 6:40 am #956078
we just made a batch of homemade cc. ill split a kilo of lox w/ you. let the mods arrange an exchange.May 24, 2013 7:04 am at 7:04 am #956079
we all know that bagels here arent as good
There’s actually a artisan bakery on our yishuv, with a real brick oven, the whole deal. He makes all kinds of breads, and his bagels are really good – as good as anything I’ve had in the states. People swear by his bialys as well, but I’ve never had them. See what you miss by not living out in the sticks?

There is no chiyuv to be at the kotel every day. It’s only an hour or so from where I live, so I’ll stay here – where there are no traffic jams and no parking hassles. B”H, I don’t need to take an 11 hour flight and pay $1200 just to get to the kotel (or anywhere else in Israel, for that matter).May 31, 2013 7:22 am at 7:22 am #956083Prankster-123Member
I know someone who’s yeshivish:
Yechiel Michel Rephael MenachemMay 31, 2013 11:17 am at 11:17 am #956084
so ill keep close to the kotel, and you keep your bagels. and if i really want some, ill make the hour drive. have a great shabbos.
