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?May 6, 2012 11:58 pm at 11:58 pm #872683writersoulParticipant
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.May 7, 2012 3:04 am at 3:04 am #872684147Participant
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.May 7, 2012 4:36 am at 4:36 am #872685yitayningwutParticipant
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.May 7, 2012 6:45 am at 6:45 am #872686YW Moderator-42Moderator
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).May 7, 2012 8:05 am at 8:05 am #872687
@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.May 7, 2012 9:15 am at 9:15 am #872688HaLeiViParticipant
Hey, 42. You are giving out the company secret!May 7, 2012 10:07 am at 10:07 am #872689moreMember

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?;)May 7, 2012 8:39 pm at 8:39 pm #872690PosterMember
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.May 7, 2012 11:25 pm at 11:25 pm #872691LogicianParticipant
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.

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.May 8, 2012 3:13 am at 3:13 am #872693147Participant
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.May 8, 2012 5:01 am at 5:01 am #872694yitayningwutParticipant
147 means more_2.
