How do they explain the famous mishna “Al Shalosh Devarim haolam omed ” in Lakewood?
Torah: The boy has to learn.
Avodah: The girl has to work.
Gemilas chasadim: The parents have to support them.July 11, 2013 2:48 am at 2:48 am #973158TheGoqParticipant
I don’t think this is the time to be making fun of fellow Jews.July 11, 2013 3:01 am at 3:01 am #973159Git MeshigeParticipant
It is quite apparent that one who makes “jokes” about other Yidden a few days before Tisha baav, the day that we mourn the Bais Hamikdash that was destroyed becuase of people being insensitive to others, has no feeling about the churban and how to better ourselves with that regard. How sad.July 11, 2013 3:30 am at 3:30 am #973160WolfmanParticipant
While I don’t think the joke is particularly funny, I do think that the two subsequent critical posters posted as they did because it was an opportunity to take a shot at a venerable contrary opinion in the CR.July 11, 2013 3:47 am at 3:47 am #973161scy4851Participant

Wolfman nothing could be further from the truth I know rebdoniel is not a popular poster here but i think he has every right to express himself as he sees fit, I meant what i said this is not the time to be making fun of fellow yidden.July 12, 2013 1:07 am at 1:07 am #973163
In retrospect, I find this to be less of a joke and more of an apt social commentary and accurate description of a decrepit state of affairs we’ve found ourselves in as a people.July 12, 2013 4:13 am at 4:13 am #973164☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant

You have an odd way of expressing your so called love for all Jews.July 12, 2013 7:45 am at 7:45 am #973165
The fact that so-called Torah Jews ignore Torah injunctions to work, teach one’s son a trade, defend Eretz haKodesh, etc. are certainly things I’ll be lamenting on Tisha b’Av this year, just as I lament the fact that there are Jews who eat treif or carry or drive on shabbat.
When Haredim come to the defense of my rabbis, I’ll come to the defense of theirs.July 12, 2013 12:05 pm at 12:05 pm #973166SaysMeMember
i’ve heard the joke from many who are living like that- they didn’t seem to find it slightly offensive. Interestingly, those who weren’t in that life feared it offensive.July 12, 2013 12:26 pm at 12:26 pm #973167Torah613TorahParticipant

It’s the Ten Days of Repentance but I will laugh at this.
