ames- re: mamazetz- I think nobody was really able to assist you because the expression/word is really “mamazetzER”. And as Joseph did mention earlier, this means the “the-mother-of-all” & has that type of connotation. In your example: it was a mamazether of a house- the biggest, grandest house everFebruary 18, 2009 9:59 pm at 9:59 pm #1083776
areivim: i believe squeak explained it.$February 18, 2009 10:36 pm at 10:36 pm #1083777
i always thoughtmy siblings were from another planet huh guess i was wrong 😛February 18, 2009 10:41 pm at 10:41 pm #1083778
chutassi- please forgive me! for I have sinned.
you see, squeak has been gone for so long I’m already attributing all his quotes to Joseph. That’s really sad- I was definitely his biggest fan. no doubtFebruary 18, 2009 10:54 pm at 10:54 pm #108377922OldGoldParticipant

Moish- you got that right!( The 3 R’s-Reading,writing, and arithmatic)See how smart you are!February 19, 2009 1:49 am at 1:49 am #1083781
ames: please don’t start writing mamazetzer(i like the word, but i won’t steal it from you) posts now.$February 19, 2009 4:08 am at 4:08 am #1083782
yeh i know my reading, riting and rithmatic. achshav ani mamash iluy.February 19, 2009 5:24 am at 5:24 am #1083783
ames: CH”V, i meant don’t write long posts, it had nothing to do with anything, i just wanted to use the word.$February 19, 2009 7:06 am at 7:06 am #1083784
BasYisroel2: wow great ones!!!
ames: it sounded ok mamazet, in the way you used it as you have made a mamazetzer of a mistake!!
qwertyuiop: as to your fave word hazeeta: my sister started using it, i donno where she picked it up from[not here for sure]!!! it drives me nuts when she uses it, cause i keep wanting to yell ”hey that’s my dear friend qwerty’s fave word!!!”February 19, 2009 9:43 pm at 9:43 pm #1083785
whats hazeeta?February 19, 2009 10:11 pm at 10:11 pm #1083786
i thought hazeet was syrian’s fav- meaning ‘nebach’
confusedFebruary 20, 2009 2:51 am at 2:51 am #1083787
i’m confused now, i thought it meant nebach, ames or syriansephardi, please explain.$February 20, 2009 3:43 am at 3:43 am #1083788JosephParticipant
ames, yes.February 20, 2009 5:17 am at 5:17 am #1083789
qwertyuiop: seriously everytime she says it, which is very often, i think of you!!!
areivimzehlazeh: qwertyuiop uses it alot, especially on the homepage comments!!!
ames: yes sounds correct for nebach!!!February 20, 2009 5:57 am at 5:57 am #1083790
asdfghjkl: does she use mamazetzer, because that’s my 2nd favorite word.$
ames: i believe so, and no i didn’t get confused from that, i got confused because syriansephardi said it means nebach, and you said it doesn’t.$February 20, 2009 8:59 am at 8:59 am #1083791
yoshi!!!! you havent been here in ages! youve been missed!
ames that very funny whenever ive heard the word used (outside of the CR) it was always haazita and i was wondering why everyone was saying it without the a at the end.
moish maybe to help prove the point (even though language wasnt one of the three r’s) lets say achshav ani iluy(a) mamash
could we go back on topic now?February 20, 2009 5:52 pm at 5:52 pm #1083792
you mean in pirkei avos when it describes the seven traits on a chochom and then the opposite seven are a golem?
shoel keinyan umeishiv kehalachaFebruary 20, 2009 6:10 pm at 6:10 pm #1083793
qwertyuiop: nope, she doesn’t use mamazetzer!!! it’s a cool word, i’ll start using it!!!February 20, 2009 6:51 pm at 6:51 pm #1083794

moish is an anav in addition to a talmid chochom.February 22, 2009 3:47 pm at 3:47 pm #1083798
joseph, you mean a person could be both?? 😉
and i don’t know where you get these weird ideas from. “not stupid” does not mean “talmid chochom.”
just by the way, define the term “talmid chochom.”
you’ll see i don’t fit into the category.February 23, 2009 6:20 am at 6:20 am #1083799anonymisssParticipant
moish, I’ll turn the challenge over to you. Define the term talmid chacham.
~a~February 23, 2009 7:19 am at 7:19 am #1083800
well, notice that people don’t get called a chochom, but rather a “talmid.” i’d say that a talmid chochom is someone who is learning from a chochom, which i just said is probably non-existent. so is it someone who is a talmid of chochma? which i would say is torah?
either way, i’m not a talmid of anyone.February 23, 2009 7:33 am at 7:33 am #1083801
anyone who has something to offer can really be called a chacham, no? so if someone learns something then why wouldn’t he be a talmid chacham?
ames great quote and lolFebruary 23, 2009 7:40 am at 7:40 am #1083802
not really. think of great rabbis. you still call them “talmidei chochomim.”
i guess it’s probably because there’s no end to learning. maybe it’s supposed to be mussar or something. don’t ask me.February 23, 2009 7:52 am at 7:52 am #1083803
ames: nice quote there!!!February 23, 2009 7:53 am at 7:53 am #1083804
ames, you missed the point 😉
jk, i know you do, but they’re still called talmidei chochomim. the title “chochom” is instead of saying “rabbi.” seems like there are too many so-called “rabbis” that they need to differentiate between the real ones and the wanna-bes somehow… (tell me i’m not too far form the truth!)February 23, 2009 8:12 am at 8:12 am #1083805
i told you on friday. there are a bunch more but i’m not quoting them to you because i’m gonna get “talmid chochom” remarks from you and joseph and i’m not interested.February 23, 2009 8:13 am at 8:13 am #1083806
ames: great quote.$February 23, 2009 1:57 pm at 1:57 pm #1083807anonymisssParticipant
I’m liking the turn that this thread took!
the root of the word talmid is learn. A talmid is someone who is learning and there is no specification as to from where he is learning. Chacham is a smart person.
I’ll leave y’all to draw your own conclusions…..

i think that’s right. someone correct me if i messed up somewhere. you want translations or you think you could manage?
oh now where exactly does it say that a chochom applies what he learns? (i’ll admit that i might be a tipesh, but the opposite of a chochom here is a golem.)February 23, 2009 7:54 pm at 7:54 pm #1083809
sorry about that. i probably could have googled and found them typed out in hebrew.February 23, 2009 8:10 pm at 8:10 pm #1083810

there are seven traits in a golem and seven in a chochom.
- doesn’t speak before one who is greater than him in wisdom or in years
- doesn’t cut in while his friend is speaking
- doesn’t rush to answer
- asks questions that are on topic and answers appropriately
- answers what’s asked first, first and second, second (answers questions in the order they were asked)
- when he doesn’t know something he says “i don’t know”
- admits the truth
and the opposite seven are a golem.February 23, 2009 8:55 pm at 8:55 pm #1083814
oh…thanx 🙂February 23, 2009 8:59 pm at 8:59 pm #1083815

I must be a golem – I am terrible about interrupting people I always rush to respond and I generally change the order 🙂 I don’t have a problem saying I don’t know though. I guess I am only part golem and cannot accompany Frodo.February 23, 2009 9:42 pm at 9:42 pm #1083817
