    I felt really tired this morning and Davened on my iPhone in my pajamas. I felt really bad after fir doing it that way and wanted to repeat shachris with a siddur and dressed. But I was afraid that it might be a brachial lvatola… What do you guys think?

    There are two separate issues, the iPhone and the pajamas. Either way, it would probably be a bracha levatalah.

    The iPhone might be a sensitivity (and that’s your opinion) but it absolutely doesn’t make your davening on a lower level.

    The pajamas, if you’re a girl and they have pants, may be an issue. Otherwise, I think you just need to be wearing something, though it’s probably much better not to wear pajamas.

    You more_2 are a Tzadik Gomur for having recited thy prayers, and B’H you repeated nothing when you got your tuxedo on, because this would have been a violation of the 3rd of the 10 commandments Chas v’Sholom.

    As far as I-Phone, B’H for this technology; At least if you enter a restroom with I-phone in your pocket, no Halachic issues. If enter restroom with conventional Siddur in your pocket, Halachic issues arise.

    Because of Tzadikim like you who know how to put this wonderful technology to good use, I am not wasting my time at this anti-computer gathering in Flushing on Yom Yerusholayim. Even more so, because I know couples who met on Frum dating sights & are happily married.

    It it not appropriate to daven in your pajamas if you are capable of putting on respectable clothing. The pasuk says ??????? ????????-?????????? ??????????, “Israel, prepare to meet your God” (Amos 4:12), and Chazal support the idea of dressing respectfully for davening from there.

    In any event you still fulfilled your obligation.

    147, Why do you assume it’s an anti-computer event. I was under the impression that it is somewhat “pro-computers” – when used properly, and this event is supposed to teach us how to use it properly (filters, shmira, proper chinuch, etc).

    @mod42, I wouldn’t be fooled by that. It is just another “get the computer out of your house, ban the internet, if you dare use the internet we will kick your kids out of school” speech like all the others.

    In any case, even if I would live in NY I wouldn’t go since it has no relevance to me, my business requires me to have (unfiltered) internet.

    thanks! I know she is! Although she’s the one that irons my shirts so we should turn it into nekeiva, or I’m assuming by calling her a Tzadik gamur you are refering to her me,no?;)

    The Chassidishe Gatesheader, do you have inside info about what the asifa will be about that you are making such a statement on a public forum?

    I do have inside info and you are wrong. I am sorry and I hope I am not too blunt for you.

    The ads clearly says “you cant live with it and you cant live without it”

    If you arnt interested in going, then dont, but please dont badmouth the event with facts that you arnt sure about thus discouraging others from being inspired.

    I know cops who put their guns to excellent use by shooting dangerous criminals. Therefore, I recommend we all keep loaded guns in our homes, to be used indiscriminately, by people of all ages, with no safety precautions whatsoever, and stop legislating gun control.

    147, get a life.

    I’ve seen a number of statements from R’ Matisyahu were he said that if he could make an effective ban of the internet he would. Even though this isn’t the goal of the asifa, it isn’t embracing the technology, just tolerating it.

    yitayningwut is a Tzadekes Gemuroh for having recited her prayers; The more prayers recited, the more Nachas Ruach to the Ribbono Shel Olom.

    & if you “more” are her husband, you are a Tzadik Gomur for giving Yita space & time to recite her prayers. Kol haKovod to both of you.
