RebRY – as a BT FFB I hear you and wish I didn’t agree.August 27, 2012 7:38 pm at 7:38 pm #901113
What’s a “BT FFB”?August 27, 2012 7:53 pm at 7:53 pm #901114
Also I forgot to mention, being that I am a ger it does not matter how much I learn or how frum I am I will always be “The Ger” and be a second class citizen. People are jealous and don’t like that a goy can become a Yid and become better then them. most people are nice but that is because Hashem commanded 36 times to love a ger and I am just like a lulav or piece of matzo or other thing that is used for a mitzvah. I like to quote the pusek “Hager ashe b’kirvechu yaaleh alechu maala maala v’ atu sereid mata mata because that is what is happening today.( I know that it is talking about a ger toishav but is it is nice teich.)August 27, 2012 8:17 pm at 8:17 pm #901115
Chaverim did not start in Wiliamsburg, it was in Boro Park first.
And the directors have nothing with Satmar.

Thank you to those that have responded positively. To those that have nothing nice to say, I am not shocked. You probably learned that from your parents.
In the interest of saving myself any more grief, I will not be responding to any more posts in this thread.August 28, 2012 5:45 pm at 5:45 pm #901117
RebRY – as much as I agreed with your previous post, I completely disagree with this last one.August 28, 2012 5:57 pm at 5:57 pm #901118
A BT FFB is someone who was FFB, went OTD, then became a BT.August 28, 2012 6:17 pm at 6:17 pm #901119
Well the “truth” is that I didn’t mention Chaverim, I wrote about CHESED rides which in “truth” did start in wmsbg.
Next time read the post before you question the “truth”August 28, 2012 7:02 pm at 7:02 pm #901120
Englishman – In my case I am an FFB who became more observant, sincere and knowledgeable than I was growing up. B”H no OTD involved.August 28, 2012 9:00 pm at 9:00 pm #901122
Please do not let plain bad manners and small mindedness take away the thrill and achievement of being you. The problems of the frum world are not about being jewish, but about being human and giving into weakness and temptation, everyone has a bechira point, and as Rabbi Dessler said, for many frum people lashon hara is that very vice. Ignore them, they are beneath you and everyone else, the dysfunctionality around us is due to inept parenting and superficial communal exptectation and pressures, a very dangerous combination.August 28, 2012 10:50 pm at 10:50 pm #901123
No one answered my question:(August 30, 2012 2:01 am at 2:01 am #901124
more_2: faranrak margolis is a frum jewish lady of persian descent (hence, faranak). her book is highly acclaimed by mechanchim/kiruv professionals, and has several haskamos. the only one i remember off-hand is from R’ Kelemen from Neve.
fyi: there are plenty of ehrliche, frum yidden without obviously jewish names, there’s no need to be condescending.October 29, 2012 12:29 pm at 12:29 pm #901125
I realize that I’m going against what I said about not posting again, but I am going to add one thing to here.
You stated something about my “own father” in an earlier post. I would like to inform you, kindly, that my father is deceased. But allow me to thank you for rubbing salt in a very open wound. Again, you’ve done a beautiful job of making my point for me. Something you must have learned from your own obviously holy parents. They must be so very proud. Good for you.October 29, 2012 3:07 pm at 3:07 pm #901126
Mods: this entire thread is pretty much nothing except hurtful and hateful. Perhaps it’s time to close it down once and for all?October 29, 2012 5:33 pm at 5:33 pm #901127
“Something you must have learned from your own obviously holy parents. They must be so very proud. Good for you.”
I take no political nor religious stance. I will support those who believe differently than I when they are kind and disagree respectfully. I feel for you,I really do, and agree with some points. But your condescending attitude and bias make it hard to see you as any different intrinsically, than those you are angry with.
