Do any women like herring?November 29, 2015 3:50 am at 3:50 am #1115627
How about the smell of it?November 29, 2015 4:18 am at 4:18 am #1115628
Some on the other side do NOT like it, nor the smell. In fact some get really nauseous from being in close proximity to it… Ew.. just thinking about it…November 29, 2015 4:20 am at 4:20 am #1115629profound101Participant
Why not?November 29, 2015 5:28 am at 5:28 am #1115630

I’m a teenage female and I’m NOT chassidish and I like herring so ha!November 29, 2015 1:10 pm at 1:10 pm #1115633CTLAWYERParticipant
My wife and daughters eat herring, I can’t stand it.November 29, 2015 1:26 pm at 1:26 pm #1115634zahavasdadParticipant
I can tolerate Gefiltle Fish if drenched in Horseraddish. Herring is just inedible and I wont even touch it. They rarely even serve it as kidduishes in my shul because nobody eats itNovember 29, 2015 3:05 pm at 3:05 pm #1115635
Midoraisa a husband can divorce a wife who insists on eating herring. But not vice versa. (This is more relevant to Sefardim who don’t have Rabbeinu Gershom.)November 29, 2015 4:26 pm at 4:26 pm #1115636
J… let me show this to Frogette… (after I hide the pots and pans)November 29, 2015 4:31 pm at 4:31 pm #1115637
Kidding aside, I am makir tovah, acknowledge and appreciate the kindness my family accords (and puts up with) me, when these and other such “foods” are served, they put it on the other end of the table.November 29, 2015 5:51 pm at 5:51 pm #1115638zogt_besserParticipant
in my experience, women like the creamy, sauce-drenched herring, while the men who eat it at all generally prefer the real shmaltz stuff.November 29, 2015 6:57 pm at 6:57 pm #1115639theprof1Participant
My ex-wife loved herring, as did her mother. Her mother made a great schmaltz herring. I would make matjas herring. She loved that too.November 29, 2015 9:55 pm at 9:55 pm #1115640skripkaParticipant
in the words of my beloved wife ‘ EEEEWWWW!!!!!!!November 29, 2015 10:07 pm at 10:07 pm #1115641
You feminists, trying to pretend women like herring like men. You just want to be men.
It is not tznius for women to eat herring. A woman’s tafkid is not the same as a man.November 30, 2015 2:02 am at 2:02 am #1115642profound101Participant
…and a man’s tafkid is to eat herring!November 30, 2015 2:18 am at 2:18 am #1115643amazing jewParticipant
this is extremely racist hiring has to do with your taste buds not with your sex therefore if you like it you like it if you don’t you don’t it’s the same as any other food for example hot dogs some people like them some people don’tNovember 30, 2015 3:01 am at 3:01 am #1115644
It’s not that it doesn’t have to do with your taste buds, it’s just that it’s unseemly for a woman to take a man’s role.November 30, 2015 3:27 am at 3:27 am #1115645charliehallParticipant
I don’t like herring.
No wonder I landed in an Open Orthodox synagogue.November 30, 2015 3:29 am at 3:29 am #1115646
i personally think herring is vile but i wouldnt want to insult anyone.November 30, 2015 2:46 pm at 2:46 pm #1115647
What does a man’s role have to do with herring?November 30, 2015 2:54 pm at 2:54 pm #1115648flatbusherParticipant
Women do like herring but those who make kiddushim must think they don’t because most of the time herring is not served on the women’s side of the kiddush. Speaking of kiddushim, have you noticed that the fancy cakes go on the women side and men get the typical kiddush cakes. I guess they think men eat anythingNovember 30, 2015 2:56 pm at 2:56 pm #1115649theprof1Participant
I would like to ask those who think that herring is vile. Do you also think that sushi is vile?November 30, 2015 3:07 pm at 3:07 pm #1115650
just the fish and seaweed. otherwise i really like it.November 30, 2015 3:08 pm at 3:08 pm #1115651
I guess they think men eat anything
or they know who is judging the kiddush by the looks and who by the taste.November 30, 2015 3:10 pm at 3:10 pm #1115652
So judgemental.November 30, 2015 3:17 pm at 3:17 pm #1115653
so informed. which, btw, is why i don’t go out much.November 30, 2015 3:19 pm at 3:19 pm #1115654
Cheer up!November 30, 2015 3:34 pm at 3:34 pm #1115655
oh, im actually quite happy this way. i dont have to worry about seeing erva, pritzus, drunk men, or hearing lashon hora. life’s good.November 30, 2015 8:47 pm at 8:47 pm #1115656
The fact that you felt the need to ask that question shows that feminist values have infiltrated our community.December 1, 2015 4:10 pm at 4:10 pm #1115657
How about herring on a date?December 1, 2015 8:07 pm at 8:07 pm #1115658
I am a feminist. I see no problem with being a feminist Jew.December 1, 2015 8:44 pm at 8:44 pm #1115659December 1, 2015 9:04 pm at 9:04 pm #1115660cherrybimParticipant
I’m in the mood for some genuine cured corned beef; the kind that took several weeks to prepare. Does anyone still do it or are they all overnight chemicals doing the curing nowadays? To borrow a phrase, if you youngins never had the original corned beef, you never ate corned beef in your lives.December 1, 2015 11:24 pm at 11:24 pm #1115661
Homealone, that is an excellent question. I’m surprised nobody bothered to answer you.
Here are some questions for you-
Have you been on many dates? Did they go well? Did you go out of your way to make the experience pleasant for the person you were dating?
Just curious…December 1, 2015 11:27 pm at 11:27 pm #1115662CTLAWYERParticipantDecember 1, 2015 11:28 pm at 11:28 pm #1115663
And while we’re discussing herring-
Does anybody remember the story of the tzadik nistar/milkman in Yerushalayim who dipped his hat in herring brine? What was his name? Is it a true story?
Bottom line, if it is true, it would seem a lot of ladies are not big fans of herring…December 2, 2015 10:52 am at 10:52 am #1115664
Golfer, um thanks for your concern but I was totally kidding around…December 2, 2015 1:54 pm at 1:54 pm #1115665
um, yea, homealone, kinda figured you were…
But how about that Yerushalmi milkman?
No one else ever heard of him?December 2, 2015 3:22 pm at 3:22 pm #1115666
I did too. And I also forgot the name.December 2, 2015 5:37 pm at 5:37 pm #1115667dafbiyunParticipant
My wife will not touch herring, but whenever we have company she feels compelled to buy a half a dozen types of herring for shalosh sudos.. Ditto with all other delicious/unhealthy/high calorie food. I’m not complaining,but what chance do I have at trying to lose 10 pounds? None.December 2, 2015 6:45 pm at 6:45 pm #1115668oomisParticipant
Love, love, love it! Especially in cream sauce. Never get the chance to eat it, though.December 3, 2015 12:01 am at 12:01 am #1115669screwdriverdelightParticipant
Do any women like the anisakis worms in the herring also?December 10, 2015 5:03 am at 5:03 am #1115670☢️ Rand0m3x 🎲Participant
Reb Betzalel Milchiger (not his actual last name, which I don’t remember).
According to a comment on another website,
it was sour milk that he dipped his hat in.
