This is all very enlightening.November 21, 2008 2:47 pm at 2:47 pm #1175353Mayan_DvashParticipant
I work for Honeywell. In Hebrew that would really be Ein Dvash, but that could be confusing as Ein can be translated to “lacking” or “eye” as well. I could use Be’er but apostrophes are generally not accepted in user names. Mayan translates to spring which is close enough.November 21, 2008 3:05 pm at 3:05 pm #1175354TOHIGHSCHOOLGUYMember
b/c that’s what I amNovember 21, 2008 3:07 pm at 3:07 pm #1175355oomisParticipant
Oomis comes from my married son’s nickname for me from the time that he met his future Kallah. He called her by an affectionate nickname, and added part of that nickname to each of our names. Oomis is an altered form of Ema.November 21, 2008 3:29 pm at 3:29 pm #1175356WolfishMusingsParticipant
You can do a Google search on my name to find out why. 🙂

My initials and location.
Shindy – is that a nicknam for Shaindel? A totally different name? I’ve never met anyone called Shindy before.November 21, 2008 5:29 pm at 5:29 pm #1175358gavra_at_workParticipant
I don’t have internet at home.

Because Yiddishkeit should be about how much I enjoy Shabbos and doing mitzvos and not about how much I can deny and make it harder on myself and othersNovember 21, 2008 8:18 pm at 8:18 pm #1175361AnonymousInactive

Not sure :-
(that sounds very intelligent, no?)
Just curious, is that with a “long i” or short?November 22, 2008 9:38 pm at 9:38 pm #1175364jewishfeminist02Member
Because, despite what some people here have said, I believe that there is NO inherent contradiction in being an observant Jewish feminist. And because my birthday is February 2nd (02/02).November 22, 2008 10:33 pm at 10:33 pm #1175365Mrs. BeautifulMember

It’s with a long I. Why do you spell your name intelligent INTELLEGENT? (with an E)November 23, 2008 12:18 am at 12:18 am #1175369beaconParticipant

(em) not for halachah L`maaseh (/em)November 23, 2008 4:46 am at 4:46 am #1175375Ashrecha YisroelParticipant
I chose my name because I feel our main focus here on YW should be the praise of the Jews. We are a great nation dedicated to Hashem.
Besides, it’s hard to argue with someone with such a complimentary name. 🙂November 23, 2008 4:50 am at 4:50 am #1175376JewessMember

I guesse because its neutral! I dont claim to ‘know it all’ nor do I think I should be the one to decide that some posters should ‘havemoreseichel’etc,,,,
I want to remain modest, and I’m proud of that! lol!November 23, 2008 7:38 am at 7:38 am #1175379RBS_gimmelParticipant
thanks to “Will Hill” for starting probably the nicest thread in the cofferoom!
I once got a brocha from an Odom Godol to learn Kitzur Shulchan Oruch, so I started a website http://www.kitzur.net (surprise, surprise 🙂 to promote learning this sefer.November 23, 2008 9:37 pm at 9:37 pm #1175380NobodyMember
My name says what I am. Nobody. Just someone who minds his own business and gets on with life, happy to be a nobody that no-one else would give a second look at.November 24, 2008 2:06 am at 2:06 am #1175381
Joseph hasnt posted here yet!!
I was curious about his name because if he is as “frum” as he says he would go by Yosef, not Joseph.November 24, 2008 2:26 am at 2:26 am #1175382JosephParticipant
SJSinNYC, rabbiofberlin advised me it is correctly spelled as Joseph (even though it is pronounced Yoseph.)November 24, 2008 3:05 am at 3:05 am #1175383zimbyMember

i had no idea what to make my screen name 🙂November 24, 2008 5:19 am at 5:19 am #1175385Chuck SchwabParticipant
I use my personal name (that I also use as my d/b/a in my brokerage business.)November 24, 2008 11:09 am at 11:09 am #1175386
Joseph – since when do you agree with ROB? (just teasing you!)November 24, 2008 3:03 pm at 3:03 pm #1175387mdlevineMember
Some people are very clever,
but with me it is not the same.
So, I stuck with what I was given
and thus, mdlevine, became my screen name.
If I was clever and had sat and pondered,
perhaps I would have chosen something not so bland.
Like YW-Moderator,November 24, 2008 3:04 pm at 3:04 pm #1175388noitallmrParticipant
Oh please SJSinNYC. This thread was so neutral let it not become a war zone between Joseph & the Rabbi. By the way do you live in Berlin ROB?November 24, 2008 4:41 pm at 4:41 pm #1175389
noitall, it was just a joke 🙂November 24, 2008 5:41 pm at 5:41 pm #1175390smalltowngirlMember
I am what I am – yes there really are Jews outside of NY…
I know I know its a difficult concept to grasp…November 24, 2008 5:47 pm at 5:47 pm #1175391squeakParticipant
Yes, we know there is life outside of NY, but since space travel is not yet widely available we have never seen such a person.November 24, 2008 5:54 pm at 5:54 pm #1175392havesomeseichelMember
Remember that the axis of the world runs through prospect park….and the world revolves around it!
oh, and there are no “humans” outside of Nyers… no one speaks english as well as they do!November 24, 2008 5:57 pm at 5:57 pm #1175393cantoresqMember
Mine ought to be obvious. Cantorial music is my passion. Lawyering is what I do for a living.
