Feif Un: Wow Thanks soo much!! You Mamish saved me the trouble of
posting a ridiculously long post, covering all the stuff you did.
I didn’t know Rav Belsky mentioned the same thing that has been
bothering me for years.
Everything that is Assur, Today we have to find a way around it.
A cappella Definition see wikipedia below —->
A cappella (Italian for From the chapel/choir) music is vocal music
or singing without instrumental accompaniment,
besides, I find it more relaxing to listen to a choir/vocals
than a bunch of pathetic attempts at beatboxing/trumpets/weird sounds
it sounds like a bunch of “Meidlach!”
It’s not cool!July 12, 2009 9:13 pm at 9:13 pm #882811
A couple of summers ago, I was working in an office. During the Three Weeks, my boss would say, “Turn on the tape, it sounds like a cemetery in here.” When someone turned on the music, I would turn to my coworker and say, “Now it REALLY sounds like a cemetery in here!!!”July 12, 2009 11:41 pm at 11:41 pm #882812
da: are you poking humor at the A cappella style tapes?July 12, 2009 11:43 pm at 11:43 pm #882813
no not at all (ummmm)July 13, 2009 12:33 am at 12:33 am #882814HaQerMember
Are there any CD’s available that have just people singing without any attempt at instruments? I would like to listen to songs that bring out the feeling of this time of year. songs about Yerushalayim, teshuva, etc. What type of CD’s are available like this?July 13, 2009 3:47 pm at 3:47 pm #882815cherrybimParticipant
HaQer: If you’re looking for chumras, then according to these shitas, the CD/tape player or even the radio becomes the “Klei Shir”; making the singing (without music) assur as well.July 15, 2009 8:58 pm at 8:58 pm #882816
da: you seriously have to turn up the volume on ur pc!
Did you not hear the sarcasm in my voice?July 15, 2009 9:52 pm at 9:52 pm #882817

Will YWN radio be playing sefira music?April 8, 2010 3:31 pm at 3:31 pm #882826
I would imagine so.
Any reason why it shouldn’t?April 8, 2010 3:43 pm at 3:43 pm #882827
No, it just isnt playing it yet, so I asked.April 8, 2010 3:57 pm at 3:57 pm #882828
I don’t know much about the player. I believe it is currently active and playing music.April 8, 2010 4:22 pm at 4:22 pm #882829
yes its playing actual music (which I generally enjoy and listen to all day) and not sefirah “music”April 8, 2010 4:26 pm at 4:26 pm #882830
Sorry for all the confusion.

I wouldn’tApril 9, 2010 12:39 pm at 12:39 pm #882835Feif UnParticipant
someonesbored, R’ Belsky would tell you to stop. See my post on page 3 with his letter:
“There are other forms of a cappella which sound very similar to regular music, although no digital modification is done to the voices. These types of a cappella should also not be listened to during Sefirah and The Three Weeks”May 11, 2010 3:06 am at 3:06 am #882839YW Moderator-42Moderator
hayom shnayim v’arba’im yom she’heim shisha shavuos la’omer. My minhag is to listen to music on the 42nd night of sefira!May 11, 2010 3:08 am at 3:08 am #882840HIEParticipant

Wow! a year old thread touching on Halacha that is not closed yet. The real kasha is how we got from S.A. tav kuf samech: gimmel, to what we have today with a multilayered music industry of our very own, and people plugged into ipods all day. For the really adventurous, contemplate what the Navi (Hoshea 9:1) and Mar Ukva (Gittin 7) were trying to communicate. If Hoshea or Mar Ukva were magically tranported to the Flatbush of today, would they recognize us as Jews?May 7, 2012 10:49 pm at 10:49 pm #882843moishyParticipant
!!!**********BUMP**********!!!May 8, 2012 3:30 am at 3:30 am #882844☕️coffee addictParticipant
thanks for the bump Moishy,
I wanted to post something about sfira music
I was out grocery shopping and the place was playing a capella, so naturally I assumed it was an a capella cd until the singing stopped and I heard “Yeshiva Wooooorld”July 6, 2012 1:06 am at 1:06 am #882845
May Moshiach come first!July 6, 2012 6:21 am at 6:21 am #882846

Koma: With all the Chumros and Minhagim that we’ve developed since then, it’s much more likely that we wouldn’t recognize them as Jews, and you want to complain about those who rely on legitimate Shittos of major Poskim? (The Yam Shel Shlomo already complains about this, in the beginning of Chullin I believe. He mentions that the Gemara calls a certain topic easy to keep and he says that was only true in the times of the Geonim before we were Machmir for many Shittos of the Rishonim, but nowadays-i.e. in his time-it’s no longer so easy to keep.)July 6, 2012 2:43 pm at 2:43 pm #882849
Bump guy…in English please????July 8, 2012 7:56 am at 7:56 am #882850TheMusicManParticipant
Ok it goes like this:
Bumping on a forum (like this one here) means rooting about the archives for threads from months or even years ago, and then posting to the thread, so it gets “bumped” to the main forum page, even though the thread was started in 1994.July 8, 2012 10:33 am at 10:33 am #882851
got it! so who here listens to acapella during the 3 weeks? i did not even know that was a minhag till like last weekJuly 8, 2012 1:30 pm at 1:30 pm #882852
