How do you go for the (last) great grand bash?July 31, 2013 12:16 am at 12:16 am #1030110
You need an averia bucket list?!July 31, 2013 2:58 am at 2:58 am #1030111
No, no aveiros chas vshalom, only some good (over) indulgence in some lasting, refreshing fun, pleasure, excitement, entertainment. You know, something GOOD to last through the blah, bleary, boring winter …
Anyone??July 31, 2013 3:03 am at 3:03 am #1030112
This premise is so against everything which Torah-true Yiddishkeit stands for. What would Rav Avigdor Miller, zt”l say?July 31, 2013 3:28 am at 3:28 am #1030113
I don’t know what he would say. I’d rather not ask him now.July 31, 2013 3:54 am at 3:54 am #1030114
You could start a ridiculous topic in the CR.
Oh. You’ve already done that.
Actually, until now I’d never made the connection between Elul and Lent. So you’re trying to do the equivalent of Mardi Gras?July 31, 2013 4:58 am at 4:58 am #1030115
The poor guy just wants ideas of something to do in his last week of vacation before the new zman in yeshiva and everyone is giving him a hard time.July 31, 2013 5:13 am at 5:13 am #1030116
Agreed, but it was poorly worded. That’s why everyone misunderstood.July 31, 2013 5:16 am at 5:16 am #1030117
How about doing a duet in middle of the night out somewhere on a boat?July 31, 2013 6:11 am at 6:11 am #1030118
I had a post planned but yehudayona beat me to it.
Oh! I got it! The premise of this thread is Chukas Akkum!July 31, 2013 1:34 pm at 1:34 pm #1030119
Wrong mindframe greeny!
😉July 31, 2013 4:40 pm at 4:40 pm #1030120
That would “sound” like fun. However
1) We would need a lake
2) a boat too
3) someone to go withJuly 31, 2013 6:33 pm at 6:33 pm #1030121
I don’t know what he would say. I’d rather not ask him now.
Actually that does sound like fun, get a couple of guys, some scotch, and dig some people up.July 31, 2013 8:04 pm at 8:04 pm #1030122
Ooooh, digging people up? No, that’s not my cuppatea, believe me. Any thought of these morbid related and accessories causes me to get quite queasy, putting it mildly.July 31, 2013 8:14 pm at 8:14 pm #1030123
So how about just bringing them up?August 1, 2013 6:51 pm at 6:51 pm #1030124
Bringing them up? Mrs. Ov did, Shaul haMelech asked her too. (scary, it was head first)August 1, 2013 7:49 pm at 7:49 pm #1030125
(Would it be any less scary, the other way around?!)August 1, 2013 8:10 pm at 8:10 pm #1030126
Less scary for Mrs. Ov. She was nebach scared out of her wits.August 1, 2013 8:20 pm at 8:20 pm #1030127
Shrek!August 1, 2013 11:20 pm at 11:20 pm #1030128

Chas veSholom! Nothing could be further removed from the truth.
Ellul:- Serious-Absolutely! Sad-Absolutely not! We are reading the very last Parshiyos of the Toroh:- Sefer Devorim eagerly heading me’Eivel leSimcho from Devorim on Chazzon to veZos haberocho on Simchas Toroh.
It is so wonderful anticipating a month long of Chaggim & intense closeness to haShem. As children the excitement of the approaching Chaggim was incredible; All this with no worries about cleaning out Chometz. & the days are getting shorter, so Motzei Shabbos will once again be at decent hours.
When my kids were very little I made a special point of bringing them to Shul in Ellul to hear Tekias Shofor daily. Needless to say, I blow Tekias Shofor for my wife everyday before I head out to work.August 2, 2013 1:28 am at 1:28 am #1030129
I think this must be a period to make amends with G-d, ourselves, and others. Kol shofar and the sound of selichot calls us to do exactly that: to recognize we’re sinners, often wretched, in a world that is characterized by brokenness, sadness, and yearning. May our teshuva and our sincere desires to reconnect with the RBSO result in a better world as we approach the new year.August 2, 2013 3:24 am at 3:24 am #1030130
Needless to say, I blow Tekias Shofor for my wife everyday before I head out to work.
You’re not supposed to blow shofar b’yechidus in Elul. But I appreciate the effort.August 2, 2013 3:59 am at 3:59 am #1030131
Hey, these guys are getting a head start. Don’t jump the guns!! It’s still bein hazmanim. Summer in full swing. There’s still time yet to sober up. (Yekkes have a saying morgen morgen..)August 2, 2013 5:05 am at 5:05 am #1030132
147, what does all that have to do with Yom Yerushalayim?August 27, 2014 4:15 pm at 4:15 pm #1030133
oops… too lateAugust 29, 2014 3:42 am at 3:42 am #1030134
smoked a couple of cigs right before i quit.August 29, 2014 6:43 am at 6:43 am #1030135
“Letting looxe” beore the “mad” rush just cost us a life in Yerushalayim.August 29, 2014 5:16 pm at 5:16 pm #1030136
I think getting in a fight about this wud be counterproductive so im just gonna say i think youre jumping the gun
