“When our gedolim make a decree they dont do it becuz of culture. What goyish culture does doesnt mean anything to us. if they dont call there wifes by there first names than its because thats what the Torah wants of them (and us). It has nothing to do with goyish culture or goyish society.”
I am not certain, but exactly WHEN did our Gedolim make the decree that it is assur to call one’s wife by her given name in public????? I must have been out taking a walk at the time.
“If it actually said that in the Torah or the Talmud, I would agree. Please show me the exact place and quote where it does, and I will not say another word on this subject. “
If thats the way our gedolim do it then thats obviously the way were suposed to do it. Our gedolim show us the way.
Mosherose- that doesn’t mean A THING. There are many CHUMROS that people, including rabbis take upon themselves. But it is a chumra, and not Halacha and therefore the whole kahal can follow if they are part of that kehilla.
Oomis, thats the problem – you were out taking a walk! Women should only be in the home and go out once or twice a month.
