Is anyone planning to live-Tweet the event?
You are only complaining because it is the Siyum. If it were a rock and roll concert or a sporting event, you would not have an issue.
These are the general charges by the box office.
If a concert producer was charging such a high handling charge and was providing the same level of service the complaints would be there.
$8 is definately too high for a service that sells seats without the ability to know beforehand what section thay are in and provides no indication or choice of how or when the tickets will be shipped (or if the order is even being processed).
Oops, I meany polygamous.
And, under Jewish divorce law, is it true that it generally awards all marital assets (house, bank accounts, etc.) to the husband?
Halacha doesn’t recognize marriage as a financial partnership (such a partnership is impossible in a poligamist society) so there is no division of assets when the partnership is dissolved.
The elevators are pre-programmed for more weight [i.e. using exgtra elecricity for much higher weight than is actually in elevator/lift] than will probably be the weight of the several passengers in the elevator/lift at any time of use
There is no way to pre-program how much power will be consumed by an electrical motor with varying loads. Whether or not a variance in power has any Halachic ramifications is dealt with by the Poskim.
It has been mostly an honorary title since 1291 and is claimed by a number of royal houses. The only legitimate monarch today that claims this title is Juan Carlos I of Spain.
Prior to Bomberg there was no such thing as a mass producible full Shas.
When, and who, established the daf system we use today in the Gemorah?
Daniel Bomberg in 1520-1523

Interesting, what about those that aren’t counted in the Minyan?
If you’re looking for suggestions, I’s suggest changing the tense of the last paragraph to past perfect.
According to many if not Most Damascus is part of HALACHIC Eretz Yisroel
BTW Elat is NOT part of Halachic Eretz Yisroel
How do you define/determine the boundries of Halachic Eretz Yisroel?
Does the issur of making non-parve pread extend to corn bread?
What cities in Chutz L’aretz do we know had walls at the time?
Baghdad, Damascus and Prague.
Yeshivas have been banning books forever, even Shakespeare only makes it into Mechinas after a lot of use of Sharpie’s.
Much of Shakespere’s work should be removed from yeshiva curriculums.
Are there any ‘segulos’ anyone knows about?
Davening Shachris at sunrise.
Giving Tzedakah to everyone that asks without questioning them.
Yiddishe Zach, Your pofile doesn’t come up on YWN… can you post the link to your profile.
How is this relevant to the topic.
And this may be a silly question, but can you give yourself a haircut?
I give my self a haircut regularly.
If you buy a haircut machine, you can give yourself a buzz very easily and for sure for your kids.
I only once gave myself a buzz.
There is a haircutting machine for men specially made that you can give yourself a haircut, i saw the advert of it.
You don’t need a sepcial machine, I use an Oster Classic 76.February 28, 2012 2:59 am at 2:59 am in reply to: New news story- OTD Lakewood woman with 4 kids wants custody #857291
There are specific requirements for custody arbitration to be legally binding. This is from Fawzy v. Fawzy:
Finally, the Court addressed the process by which parents can bind themselves to arbitration over a child custody dispute. The Court emphasized the importance of ensuring that parents understand their rights and the ramifications of their decision before they agree to arbitrate. The Court thus required there be an agreement in writing or otherwise recorded that clearly establishes the parties 1) understand they have a right to a judicial determination of their dispute and knowingly agree to waive that right; 2) understand and accept the limited circumstances in which they can challenge the award; 3) have had enough time to fully consider the consequences of their decision to arbitrate; and 4) have entered the agreement voluntarily.
If a Beis Din stated that they wouldn’t preside over a Get unless she agreed to custody arbitration, than such an arbitration can be challenged.
On the subject: Can someone explain to me the rationale behind taking a product (for instance, I think I’ve seen Twizzlers) and putting a sticker over the OU with not only a different hashgacha but also a different brand name (I believe it’s Oneg in this case)? What is the point? Is that run and only that run certified by the second hashgacha? What’s the point of putting another brand on the sticker?
I can’t speak about any particular case but unless the sticker specifies what added benifits they provide, I assume there are none.
Someone who is not in the military is prohibitted to wear a military uniform. Simalarly someone not in yeshiva is prohibited to wear the Yesivah uniform.
Except as otherwise provided by law, no person except a member of the Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps, as the case may be, may wear –
(1) the uniform, or a distinctive part of the uniform, of the Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps; or
(2) a uniform any part of which is similar to a distinctive part of the uniform of the Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps

Why are women who go OTD automatically labeled as “promiscuous”?
Same reason they are a no go for someone in the military
Just because someone is enlisted in the military doesn’t mean they have to always be in uniform.
Get shelves made from lumber core plywood. Or if your existing shelves are thick you can cut grooves in them and inlay steel bars.
Why do they have to be frum?
Glatt as a basic requirement for Kosher.
You forgot Lumbar. If you exlude Cervical and count Sacral and Coccygeal as being 1 each, you can get to 18 or 19.
My previous post was not in response to you but it does adresses your last question.
Nearly unanimous is a meaningless phrase.
Gedolim get sick just like everyone else. It’s just that when I get sick it’s not newsworthy so unless you know me personally you wouldn’t know.
Minhagim used to be geographic. When a woman got married and moved to her husband’s city, she would follow the same Minhagim that her husband was already following.
u can jsut bake em in the oven instead of frying.

Usually the moon phase is taken into account in determining when to attack.
Why not?? It decreases the things the young coupe has to get used to and it increases Hashkafic compatibility!
A smaller gene pool also increases the chances for recessive genetic diseases.
I think it would be covered by copyright. They decribe their layout as having “clear instuctions, copious subtitles, and precise page headings”. If these elements are original than the layout can be covered by copyright.
Why aren’t their hundreds of hours invested in a new typeset protected?
Copyright law only deals with new intelectual property. Regardless of how great the investment is, if no new intelectual property is created there is nothing to be protected.
What determines that?
Usually a judge, But I’ll give my opinion about 3 seform I have nearby:
Artscroll Interlinear Siddur – IP in layout (That’s my interpertation of the law, personally I’d leave out the “I” in “IP”)
Oz VeHehadar Gemorah – IP in layout, but most of it is already in the public domain (being newly typeset has no affect)
Beis HaLevi (Mishor) – No IP in layout
Assuming they didn’t merely use a photo offset of a non-copyrighted edition, I believe they would hold the rights to the layout, even without rights to the content.
The layout is only protected by copyright if the layout itself is “Intellectual Property”.February 8, 2012 2:28 am at 2:28 am in reply to: why hasn't the pre-geula teshuva movement started? #850027
Av is the 5th month, not the 11th month.
The formatting and layout (of the printed version) are also copyrighted
I’m not familiar with this edition. Is there something special about the formatting or layout to make it eligible for a copyright?
He certainly is a godol, but he seems to act as any Litvishe rosh yeshiva does. He does not have any Chassidim in the tradtional sense from what I recall.
He used to be a Rosh Yeshiva at YRSRH. He was pressured to become a Rebbe after his father’s death.
Looks like they moved to a different port on a different server but didn’t update all the links yet.

The elementery schools teach that Columbus was a genius in a world of idiots that thought that the earth was flat while in actuallity he was the idiot that underestimated the size of the earth and couldn’t tell America apart from India.
Why did Devorah, who was the olden day equivalent of the best girl in BJJ, marry an ignoramus, was the best guy in Lakewood taken? Perhaps we can hijack Popa’s thread and turn it into a picky girls thread 🙂
Maybe her father was too cheap to get the best guy in Lakewood.
I think that post 350078 should stay. Despite the fact that it is hurtful to some, it shows a sentiment that many feel but supress for various reasons.
Longrakel: yet not all sefardim. i.e. the Teimanim can marry multiple.
Teimanim aren’t Sefardim.
I sometimes go to Al Jazeera.
