Thou shall not post material that is against the Torah.July 16, 2012 2:09 am at 2:09 am #931865
Using this format is Chukas Hagoyim, right? It’s from the King James translation. No one would ever speak in the “thou shalt not” or “thou shall” form nowadays otherwise. I actually think speaking (maybe you could be Mechalek for posting but I don’t hear that) like that is an Issur D’oraisa.July 16, 2012 2:13 am at 2:13 am #931866

Sam you are confused these are not the ten commandments but the ten crommandments its ok to use old fashioned english for this list.July 16, 2012 2:35 am at 2:35 am #931869choppyParticipant
Et tu?July 16, 2012 2:36 am at 2:36 am #931870
Syag: Shakespeare spoke in old English and certainly parts of it are still used because of him, but the “thou shalt not” form comes from the ten commandments in the King James bible. At least, that’s where common usage comes from. I’m sure he (and by he I mean whoever translated it; James just financed it, not wrote it) didn’t invent the form. He’s just the reason it’s popular today, which is all Chukas Hagoyim should care about.July 16, 2012 3:18 am at 3:18 am #931871

Just to be clear, I was 100% serious when I mentioned the Chukas Hagoyim issue. I actually think that it’s an Issur D’oraisa.July 16, 2012 3:34 am at 3:34 am #931876

Mod-42 and all other heilige mods.
Can I make a crazy request? Technically it is now Ereve Tisha Baav. Unfortunately there is a tendency for many topics to get heated and people either get insulted and offended which brings machlokes and sinah or some loshon hora slips by modding. Although this thingust be avoided at all times I think it must be avoided at all costs the day before Tisha baav (or 2 days if you want to nit pick). Maybe take it under consideration to close the coffeeroom until after Tisha Baav, or go into hyper modding mode (much harder!) where you basically make sure all comments are rated g for general audiences or e for everyone. I hope you can honor at least one of my requests although in honesty its best for everyone to take the day off. Maybe post a message on the top that you are taking the day off to prepare for Tisha baav. Theres plenty to do between taking a look at eicha, the kinnos, or reading up on the churbon Bayis as well as other churbanos that have happened over the centuries of our bitter galus.
I thank you in advance and sincerely wish that this tisha baav will be a Yom Tov where all Jews will be united in praising Hashem and doing His will with a complete heart.July 27, 2012 1:52 pm at 1:52 pm #931886
Kozov: I highly doubt any Jews spoke English as their native language at the time. They were all expelled from the country. I don’t think there were any Jewish English translations until the 20th century. But I’m no expert in that. I’d have to look it up.July 27, 2012 2:18 pm at 2:18 pm #931887Feif UnParticipant

Why is it different from using any other phrase made by goyim (ie, whats up, that rocks, etc)? Heck, the whole English language was made up goyim – does that mean it’s an issur di’Oraysa to speak English?July 27, 2012 8:31 pm at 8:31 pm #931889KozovMember

thou should use tau instead of pi pi is wrong
there is a theorum going around that one should use tau instead of pi
tau is a cute little symbol that looks like the greek numeral t
google search it
and you will never use pi againJuly 30, 2012 7:11 am at 7:11 am #931895

Toi: And a tosfos in sukkah too, so what? The gemara and the tosfos there make it very clear that these are approximations. In fact, they use much rougher approximations than most mathematicians do.July 30, 2012 5:47 pm at 5:47 pm #931898CuriosityParticipant

Ummm… you guys can start a tau thread. We’re supposed to talk about the ten crommandments. (Which apparently there are more than ten.)

Sam2 – according to your logic the Torah is over on chukkas hagoy by saying yegar sahadusohJuly 31, 2012 4:41 am at 4:41 am #931902
Pcoz: That’s not a religious phrase. “Thou shalt not” is a phrase that came into common usage because it was borrowed from the King James Bible. Therefore, using it for any purpose is an Issur D’Oraisa of Chukas Hagoyim. I don’t see why people are having such a problem with this, other than the fact that they never thought of that before. It’s fairly simple though.July 31, 2012 4:42 am at 4:42 am #931903MammeleParticipant

According to Rb Mordechai Gifter z”l judaism is not a religion – religious connotes conformity – keeping the Torah is not conformation to a set of rules. It is a logical mode of life. Therefore the Torah is not scared of information which is derived from the vernacular of different times and places.July 31, 2012 3:23 pm at 3:23 pm #931905mw13Participant
“mw13: This was done for religious purposes. That’s the difference.”
