I tried to do some things that we don’t usually do, like we sang zemiros. Haven’t done it in a while. It was a nice enhancer. The project’s site has nice stories that are inspiring to read. May we use our good inspiration to keep growingNovember 2, 2014 7:58 pm at 7:58 pm #1039400oyyoyyoyParticipant

All the more a pity bp didn’t take partNovember 2, 2014 9:31 pm at 9:31 pm #1039404
We’re not interested in it and besides where do we have room for guests ?November 2, 2014 10:16 pm at 10:16 pm #1039405ivoryMember
Royal “we”? There are thousands yidden in bp who are interested and have room! Speak for yourself!November 2, 2014 10:28 pm at 10:28 pm #1039406ari-freeParticipant
If you’re not interested in it then don’t be surprised when your children aren’t interested in Shabbos.November 2, 2014 10:44 pm at 10:44 pm #1039407
I’m the community representive so what I say goes for everyone in bpNovember 2, 2014 10:50 pm at 10:50 pm #1039408
I’m the community representive, so wee have a bit of a problem.November 2, 2014 11:29 pm at 11:29 pm #1039409147Participant
I tried to do some things that we don’t usually do namely, that I spent Shabbos in Yerusholayim, to spite the Hamas who tried to scare us away from Israel this past summer.November 3, 2014 2:24 am at 2:24 am #1039410golferParticipant
Ari-f, that seems a little harsh.
Children are self-centered creatures. Having guests at the Shabbos table is nice as far as being mechanech them to do Hachnasas Orchim. But a lot of kids will enjoy Shabbos if they have their parents’ undivided attention at the table. They’ll enjoy talking and eating and singing and spending time together during Seudos Shabbos. Yes, even if that includes a little bickering with their sibs. I don’t know if sm29 has kids. But I’ll bet if he does, they enjoyed the Shabbos project without any unfamiliar guests.November 3, 2014 2:39 am at 2:39 am #1039411
@rebyidd no ur Flatbush representative I’m the boro park representative phishteists ?November 3, 2014 12:49 pm at 12:49 pm #1039412ari-freeParticipant
yes I realize it was too harsh. Just as you don’t want to turn people off from Shabbos by being harsh about it, I also shouldn’t turn people off from doing kiruv and hachnosas orchim by being harsh about it, making them feel guilty, etc. Torah should be made pleasant to all Jews and not just newbies.November 4, 2014 4:49 am at 4:49 am #1039413
Have we clarified who’s the representative of what?November 4, 2014 4:54 am at 4:54 am #1039414

We’ll see who wins the election for representative todayNovember 4, 2014 6:09 pm at 6:09 pm #1039418
The election doesn’t count. I’m permanently the representative of both. And I know what you are. You’re the representative of Norway.November 4, 2014 6:20 pm at 6:20 pm #1039419
How are you the representative of bp you don’t even know Yiddish you know what you can be a foreign ambassador for the non chassidim still in bpNovember 4, 2014 6:27 pm at 6:27 pm #1039420
Why says I don’t know Yiddish? And I’m a representative of everyone in Boro Park. You are the representative of Norway who sits in at our meetings to make sure our decisions do not affect Norway. (By the way, why did Norway send you? No other country has a representative who comes to make sure we don’t affect them.)November 4, 2014 6:42 pm at 6:42 pm #1039422
Die kenst takeh redden Yiddish ? And you have to be a resident of bp to be representativeNovember 4, 2014 6:51 pm at 6:51 pm #1039423
As the representative of Boro Park, I make the rules. And who says I’m not a resident?
