What is the difference between Ir HaKodesh and Ir HaTorah?
(Besides the 7 time zones)August 23, 2012 5:05 am at 5:05 am #1013382
“SJS asked how far away from the yeshiva is considered another town. That is a fair question. In my humble opinion, if one shops in the major shopping areas in and around the town, then her home is considered to be a part of that town.”
This would imbue the whole southern New Jersey with the restrictions of LKWD.
The Second Temple did not imbue the whole of Judea with the status of Jerusalem.August 23, 2012 5:44 am at 5:44 am #1013383GetzelParticipantAugust 23, 2012 7:15 am at 7:15 am #1013384Rosh ChamParticipant
Know whats awesome? the fact that in the USA anyone can move anywhere,dosent make a diffrence who you are and where you want to live. there /threadAugust 24, 2012 1:20 pm at 1:20 pm #1013385WhiteberryMember
Know what would be even more awesome? After you moved to wherever it is you wished to move, you would be able to get your children into the local yeshiva (I’m talking a situation where you toe the line so to speak, but still can’t get in because you are perceived as “them” not “us”).November 19, 2013 5:40 am at 5:40 am #1013386
This thread provides insight on at least two Torah laws:
Prohibition of Bamos once the Mikdash was built in Jerusalem and
Requirement to eat the Second Maaser in JerusalemNovember 19, 2013 9:41 pm at 9:41 pm #1013387golferParticipant
Josh31 that was a great comment. Insightful and thought-provoking.
But I’m not sure I’m ready to equate BMG and the Bais HaMikdash.November 20, 2013 1:41 am at 1:41 am #1013388
The prohibition of Bamos shows that a small elite group should not break away from the rest of the Jewish people and form their separate path of serving G-d.
See my earlier post about the tribe of Levi.
The mission of the tribe of Levi is to interact with the Jewish people, not to be isolated.
Maaser sheni being eaten in Jerusalem shows that having places where all Jews can eat is a part of the most holy city.November 20, 2013 2:46 am at 2:46 am #1013389golferParticipant
Thank you for clarifying, Josh.
However, as I mentioned, it would be inappropriate to equate BMG with any other place, no matter how holy, or to equate the BMG community with any people who preceded them. The feeling they project is that they are in a class and category of their own, above all others and above reproach.
The rest of us should take heed.April 29, 2014 3:23 am at 3:23 am #1013390thinkingoutloud91Member
Lakewood was once that.
So was other places .
We need to surround ourselves in good. we should not be basing our lives from what other people are doing/ dressing/ acting.April 29, 2014 1:14 pm at 1:14 pm #1013391
Why do you find it necessary to bump this thread and respond to someone who probably doesn’t remember that he wrote it? What are you trying to accomplish here? just to stir up some controversy?April 29, 2014 3:49 pm at 3:49 pm #1013393
it seems to me that you were born in 1991
this thread began 4 years ago
that means that at that time, you were the equivalent of someone who was born in 1995April 29, 2014 5:50 pm at 5:50 pm #1013394Little FroggieMember
And one who was born in 1995 was the equivalent of someone who tried to be born 4 years later four years ago, minus 4 years adding four years.April 29, 2014 6:30 pm at 6:30 pm #1013395oyyoyyoyParticipant
you dont needa bump something everyone knows theres a thread onApril 29, 2014 7:26 pm at 7:26 pm #1013396
It troubles me why you explain it the way you explained it. It can be said much simpler.
One who was born in 1995 was the equivalent to one who was born in 1999April 29, 2014 7:38 pm at 7:38 pm #1013398

Hey! how did I get this subtitle?
That is also a question.-100April 30, 2014 3:36 pm at 3:36 pm #1013406
Yes my dear mod THAT is the question. whether tis nobler to suffer the slings and arrows of a quick subtitle or to take arms against the haste, and hope for a subtitle more apropos for the prince of Denmark. ay there’s the rub, for in that recognizance of a subtitle in the first place may be honor enough tis a consummation devoutly to be wished
aye there’s the pointApril 30, 2014 4:47 pm at 4:47 pm #1013407
But Is it not monstrous that this player here,
But in a fiction, in a dream of passion,
Could force his soul to be content with but a simple subtitle? to think that the man who was from the greatest princes should now gaze upon his posts and see so simple a designation.
Though this be madness, yet there is method in’t.April 30, 2014 5:13 pm at 5:13 pm #1013408
my subtitle too was given to me by a modApril 30, 2014 6:09 pm at 6:09 pm #1013409
Forsooth! now I doth under stand, how the system worketh. This is the short and the long of it
The poster doth protest too much, methinks.April 30, 2014 6:15 pm at 6:15 pm #1013410
That was a very palpable hit. OK I’ll stop 🙂 *Audible sigh on the part of the mod*
The play’s the thingApril 30, 2014 6:48 pm at 6:48 pm #1013411
I only started this as a response to the person who bumped this thread trying to create controversy.I Thought that making a joke out of the post would stop him in his tracks although I may have gotten carried away. And asking for a new subtitle is an idle and most false imposition; oft got without merit and lost without deserving
Confound the ignorant, and amaze indeedApril 30, 2014 7:20 pm at 7:20 pm #1013412
Does that make me a troll? No I’m new to this posting business. Welcome I’m asking seriously.

Has the landscape of Lakewood changed even more since this thread was started 4 years ago?April 30, 2014 8:00 pm at 8:00 pm #1013414
Mod, while we have you here, why was my name shortened to BoruchSchwartz? It was originally BoruchSchwartzenegger
It wasn’t me. -100
“Not I”, said the mod – 29
“It was me”, said mod – 127, who does not approve the racial reference.April 30, 2014 8:15 pm at 8:15 pm #1013415

@ boruch schwartz
seems like you werent paying attention in math class because obviously you dont know how to count
anyways I too just came upon this thread and big whoop,May 1, 2014 2:54 am at 2:54 am #1013420
Hmmph, uncultured boors *unintelligible muttering*May 1, 2014 1:18 pm at 1:18 pm #1013421
how do i not know how to count?
were you not the equivalent of one born in 95 4 years ago?May 1, 2014 3:54 pm at 3:54 pm #1013422
He was 95 four years ago, that makes him 99 tomorrowMay 1, 2014 4:29 pm at 4:29 pm #1013423
if he was born in 91 lets say he is 23
therefore, 4 years ago, in 2010, he was 19
that is the equivalent of one who was born in 1995, which would be a 19 year oldMay 1, 2014 4:40 pm at 4:40 pm #1013424
You are right. and in reference to you’re previous remarks from yesterday, I do not love Shakespeare, I just think his plays have a lot to say about our human conditionMay 1, 2014 6:48 pm at 6:48 pm #1013425
Fortunado has done me a thousand wrongsMay 1, 2014 8:29 pm at 8:29 pm #1013426
I’ll have a word with himMay 1, 2014 9:30 pm at 9:30 pm #1013427
To be or not to be
let me test you
say a jew was born in the year 1980
what was his equivalent year of birth 15 years ago (in the year 1999)?May 1, 2014 10:00 pm at 10:00 pm #1013428
I was never good at math. 1965 ?May 2, 2014 1:19 pm at 1:19 pm #1013429
You made the same mistake all the beginners make
Think of it like this
He was born in 1980
So hes 34 now
15 years ago how old was he?
What year was a 19 year old born in?
1995May 2, 2014 4:42 pm at 4:42 pm #1013430

Come home to Eretz Yisrael and you can live in entire cities and towns that are Torah based.
This is the Jewish country why you trying to implant yourselves on foreign lands, when you can come home.
This is crazy.
