Who here was against college:
Rabbi Avrohom Chaim Levin (Telz)
Rav Ahron Schechter
Rav Krupenia (Kaminetz)
etc etc etc
Many of the Talmidim from their Yeshivos went to college.
Didn’t Rav Kotler and Rav Svei come out strongly even against Touro College, kal vachomer all others? Did Reb Shmuel Berenbaum allow college for Mirrer talmidim? He ended night seder at 8 pm to prevent it. Come on, now. I do not know the individual policies of many on the list, but I don’t think this is a particularly pro-college group. These are the Chareidi leaders of America, and it is well-known that in EY the Chareidi leaders even forbid secular studies in High School. Are you really saying that the Chareidi leadership of the USA is pro-college? You well-know that is not the case.
Mods, while this is seemingly off-topic, it strongly relates to the thread as a whole. It is necessary to show that it is one unified hashkafa.
The statement attributed to the rabbis was quite vague especially with line such as asking that everyone “purge television-viewing from their homes”
What exactly does this mean and are there exceptions, e.g. for parnassah?
Correction: I meant Reb Shmuel ended second seder at 8 pm at night to prevent talmidim from going to college.
As long as you are only watching the news and commercials its OK.
As long as Gedolei Yisroel’s cries for everyone to “purge television-viewing from their homes” is heard loud and clear, you can step on my toes.
i’m back. hello everybody. i come and go. anyways if the yeshiva world can make a website, why not a TV station?
sometimes threads degrade into primarily an acrimonious venue of exchanging personal insults
