    As we all know, Joseph and squeak have been shteiging away in the Bais Medrash recently so have not been able to post in the Coffee room. Tonight being nittul nact, I think that we should hold a chess game between them. If you are here, show yourselves!!

    Nittel nacht was instituted in Europe when the Christians would go out and kill Jews on Christmas. The Chazon Ish said that in a country where there is no such danger, nittel nacht doesn’t apply, and is in fact nothing more than bittul Torah.

    Nittel Nacht predates the Chasidim. And the Chasam Sofer held of it.

    What are Moderators still doing up? Don’t they have to get up for shacharis tomorrow?

    The only retarded person who is still up flooding YWN with comments is some guy Halelujah.

    c’mon Moderators, you’re too tired to repond?

    Was in the middle of responding while you were posting this. Now can we get back on topic please?

    According to the chassam sofer, Nittel nacht follows the Eastern Orthodox (Julian) calendar, not the modern Gregorian.

    i’m happy to announce that i learned for a long time on nitul nacht. some people have a minug to go to sleep early and get up at chatzos on nitul nacht and learn. One of the maggidei shiur in my yeshiva (TORAH VODAATH) told his shiur to get up 4AM AND learn

    In Ukraine and Russia we do nitel next Thursday. Last year I inadvertently did it on the 24th as well and I was told it was not correct to do so.

    Tonight is nitel for me as far as work is concerned because unlike the 25th which is not a legal holiday here and the 6th which is not a legal holiday in the Western world, it is a holiday everywhere and I can’t even accomplish much online as I don’t deal with EY or Asia where it might not count for much. Because the streets are crowded with drunks and illegal fireworks I can’t safely get to the beis medrash or any other place where Yidden might be together.

    So I am posting away here until the fireworks show which I will watch since I can see it from my balcony and I am hardly joining the celebrations by watching from here :).

    In Creedmoor, our 150 quintillion multiple personalities of our dear Admou”r argue among themselves as to when nitel is. To keep order, the Admou”r has long since proclaimed all 1000 nights of the Plutonian calendar year to be nitel.

    In Atlantic City and Las Vegas they follow the chumra of the Admor MiCreedmor and are machmir to play not just every night of the year misafek, but even during the day. All day, every day.
