You know what I find ironic, that you even started a thread about this in the first place.
You worry about other Jews being on TV and while I am sure you didn’t watch it (cuz chas veshalom you should watch TV) apparently you knew about it, which means that you, someone you know or somewhere you work you picked up on this. Which apparently makes you just as bad as them if your considering TV so horrible, cuz you are even considering talking about goyish topics such as TV shows.
So please, stop fussing about what others are doing that doesn’t meet your frum standards. No one else is you. No one is as frum as you or will ever be. Focus on yourself before you go start trying to get others to bad mouth other jews.
Am yisroel would be better off if we turned our pointed fingers at ourselves and said where am I going wrong…July 22, 2016 3:07 pm at 3:07 pm #1160398
OURtorah, welcome back.
To whom was that comment directed?July 22, 2016 3:56 pm at 3:56 pm #11603992scentsParticipant
truth to be said, its a reality show they show only what they want to show, they edit it which ever way they want.
its all about what makes good TVJuly 22, 2016 4:51 pm at 4:51 pm #1160400
the person who started the thread.July 22, 2016 7:11 pm at 7:11 pm #1160401
OURtorah, I think you badly misunderstood his intention.July 22, 2016 7:58 pm at 7:58 pm #1160402
No I understood his message: he wants to know if it a tznious thing for a frum jewish person, who looks jewish (wearing tzitzis, kippa etc), to be on a TV show.
I simply dont understand why this is something he is bringing up. Who cares if they go onto TV. None of the people described above did anything to make a chilul hashem. If they don’t care seeing girls dressed innaproprtialy thats their problem, not ours. If you watched it, you would see that if was simply people expressing their talent to the world. Their intentions and meaning behind it is irrelevant.
You want to discuss a problematic group that would give jews a bad name and make chilul hashem, talk about neturai karta.
My point is that were all being so frum saying that these people shouldnt be on TV because its not tznoius, not frum or whatever. Meanwhile we all have our struggles, including this guy who clearly needs to start pointing fingers at others struggles and including me and you. So why can’t we simply say after seeing something like that “baruch hashem they didn’t do anything that would give Hashem a bad name, thank God I don’t feel the sruggle of wanting to or needing to be in the spotlight of the world being exposed to certain innapropriate things. I wish them the best.” Smile at the fact that those two boys who if anything are showing the world that Jews can still be Jews even if they join worldy things. Not everyone can do that or wants to do that.July 22, 2016 9:20 pm at 9:20 pm #1160403
So it’s okay to criticize someone to your right, but not someone to your left. Gotcha.
I don’t know what was on the show, but I have no idea why you think the OP was trying to criticize.July 22, 2016 9:21 pm at 9:21 pm #1160404TheGoqParticipant
Ty DY OT maybe you missed my later post on this thread where i stated i think it is cool i was not judging something you could learn from.July 25, 2016 12:09 am at 12:09 am #1160405TheGoqParticipant
Nothing like a good hit and run.July 25, 2016 5:34 pm at 5:34 pm #11604062scentsParticipant
Why would anyone think that it is not appropriate to discuss these people, they went on to the show knowingly that this will be a TV show, they for sure knew that they even might be portrayed as fools, the producers can decide whatever they want.
