Hamodia published an editorial strongly criticizing Mishpacha for publishing Hillary’s picture. Mishpacha responded claiming that they got approval from “genuine gedolim and poskim”, but they adamantly refuse to identify any of them even when advised that the tzibbur won’t accept that claim at face value without names of rabbonim.November 6, 2016 9:44 pm at 9:44 pm #1190308👑RebYidd23Participant

When I first read the title, I thought it said “Machasheifa ….”
I guess we sometimes see what we want to see.November 6, 2016 11:36 pm at 11:36 pm #1190311👑RebYidd23Participant
YWN has pictures of Hillary.November 6, 2016 11:49 pm at 11:49 pm #1190312
WELL DONE Mishpacha!! It was there, but ‘wasn’t there’.November 7, 2016 11:00 pm at 11:00 pm #1190313writersoulParticipant
I thought it was fine. (I mean, I think they, or not specifically they but these sorts of publications in general, should publish pictures of women, so naturally I thought it was fine.) I’d think it’s too little too late, as many people I know do, but I know the kind of pressure it would’ve taken to get to this point at all, so this does seem like the best they’d do under the circumstances.
An ad in the FJJ did the same thing, actually (also to Hillary). Someone wrote in to complain about it, except that the guy who put it in was the guy who owns the paper. (Someone also wrote in to complain about how his glasses make him look like Harry Potter, so either way it seems like the bar can’t be set too low in the letters section of the FJJ…).November 7, 2016 11:31 pm at 11:31 pm #1190314Person1Member
It surely made a lot of people angry and it didn’t benefit the world in any way whatsoever. I can’t think of any reason why they did that except to create the illusion that they deal with “important and sensitive” issues.November 8, 2016 12:34 am at 12:34 am #1190315Lilmod UlelamaidParticipant
Ditto. This conversation reminds me of the letter in the editor I once saw in the Yated complaining about how terrible it is that people eat chulent during the week.November 8, 2016 12:50 am at 12:50 am #1190316
Yisroel Besser’s letter hit the nail on the head. see the main news article http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/news/headlines-breaking-stories/482751/HEATING-UP%21-Hamodia-Attacks-Mishpacha-Decision-To-Publish-Photo-Of-Hillary—Contributing-Editor-Of-Mishpacha-Sruli-Besser-Fires-Back.htmlNovember 9, 2016 1:40 am at 1:40 am #1190317yehudayonaParticipant
LuL, I hope they weren’t talking about leftover cholent. If nobody ate it, that would violate bal tashchis.November 9, 2016 1:45 am at 1:45 am #1190318Lilmod UlelamaidParticipant
YY- no, I don’t think so. I think they were talking about Thursday night chulent and the chulent served for lunch in the middle of the week in many chadarim, etc.
I told this over at a friend’s house whose husband is a menahel of a cheder. He agreed that there can be an issue with eating chulent during the week as it is supposed to be special for Shabbos. So his wife said, “So why do you serve it in your school during the week?” He shrugged and said, “Cuz it works.”November 9, 2016 4:23 pm at 4:23 pm #1190319
I recently heard this on the subject.
What’s the difference between a bocher and a yungerman?
A bocher eats cholent Thursday night, Friday night and Shabbos. A yungerman eats cholent Shabbos, Sunday night and Monday night.
