    Tutoring? The time you spend tutoring is still learning.

    Tutoring, leining, or bechinos come to mind. In the slightly longer run, maybe learn a klei kodesh skill like safrus and make some money checking tefillin. You’re still learning when you do that too.

    is that a request, or are you daring me?

    just kidding

    #1133683

    Well, all my real posts get deleted. Can you please put the one up about yeshivish yeshivas. There is nothing wrong with that. In fact my sister just married a lkwd guy.

    By the way mod 80, if you are not married, I have a really good shidduch for you.

    The best money is in Shabbos and early morning hashgacha jobs. Think spending Shabbos in a nursing home or being a mashgiach at Shabbos catered events.

    Leining can be good money if you combine jobs at different shuls, or if it is a far walk.

    Tutoring can be good money if you do research and find a good paying gig.

    Tutoring sounds like the best. I don’t know where you are located, but people in Israel can earn extra on Fridays by washing building (hallway) floors.

    #1133690

    Have your wife bake cakes and sell them during supper on Thursday nights for Shabbos and…oh wait…

    #1133691

    Derech: Most “bochur’s” (as the title indicates) don’t have wives. In fact, none I know do.

    Smuggle cigarettes and sell them in Yeshiva.

    Then, smuggle cigarettes and sell them in prison.

    #1133697

    rb, tmb: you’re both fired.

    I’m writing your names down and never making a joke within 14 posts of your own!

    I indicated at the end of my post that I understood this and was just making a joke when I wrote “…oh wait…”

    Also in E”Y you can get 10 shek per haircut, which isn’t bad if you know how to do it really well.

    #1133698

    10 shek per haircut??

    I think I’m going to EY for my future haircuts.

    If someone knows how to cut hair really well , he will take far more than 10 shekels. If all a yeshiva boy wants is a buzz, then 10 shekels is quite a large sum of money per allotted time.

    #1133700

    tmb: I didn’t mean in the barber shop I meant in yeshivah. At least that’s what the guys charged where I went.

    Still the barber shop only charges about 20 shek as opposed to americhka charging like 13 dollars.

    #1133701

    10 shekels is about $2.50. That’s closer to what you tip a barber in the US, then what you pay.

    and what about high school girls???? any tips for them to get rich and make some money???

    How do you define a whole day?

    In U.S.A. a whole day of learning is usually 10-2 and 4-7:30 unless you have a morning and evening kollel.

    So if you are here in U.S.A. there is time for doing a bread route for a bakery, taking an elderly man to shul, teaching English to lower grades,cleaning a shul,delivering for a grocery or others.

    Remember it’s not a sin to work, it’s a sin to steal!

    In U.S.A. a whole day of learning is usually 10-2 and 4-7:30 unless you have a morning and evening kollel.

    My schedule was 9:35-1:15; 2:45-6:30; 7:30-10:45.

    I’m not sure which yeshiva you’re referring to, but I think my experience is more standard.

    If you are looking for a get rich quick scheme go back to sleep and keep dreaming.

    If you are looking for some pocket money or to start saving up some money. There are many things you can do if you look for it, use your imagination or look around your own neighborhood.

    #1133715

    yes my schedule is basically the same as popas
