No educational institution should honor someone who does not live the ideal lifestye (however they define it).
Any man who is not willing to honor their commitments as written in the Kesubah has no business getting married.
If anyone makes a statement, it is OK to question whether they have ulterior motives. (And I do mean anyone.)
One can always head over to Fort Lee, NJ bike across the GWB, down the West Side to the Brooklyn Bridge, save the tolls and still catch Maariv at the Marriot.
You’re better of taking the Bayonne Bridge, Staten Island Ferry, and Manhatten Bridge.
I was about to guess Winston Churchill’s cigar.
Why? Because it’s an int?
Imagine if every baseball player had a batting average of 0.
That is a perfect example of why I hate GPS. I discovered that trick 30 years ago and no one wised up to the stupidity, but now that every idiot can effortlessly do the bypass I have a feeling it will be stopped.
Don’t worry, these idiots are still trying to figure out how to get to Staten Island.
I have a feeling that this line is going to cause problems.
The Winter Solstice is always in the 11th month of the Chinese calendar so the New Year is almost always on the second new moon following the Winter Solstice. The exception being when a leap month is added after the 11th or 12th month.
Amex points are not the same as airline miles.
Technically they can’t be sold. The way around this is the broker purchases a ticket (or upgrade) for the “buyer” using your miles. As a result the miles you are selling have no shelf life and unless someone has an immediate need for the miles you won’t get a buyer. Additionally you need to have enough miles for the reward because the buyer can’t shop around for miles from multiple sources.
Unfortunately hardly anyone is buying miles because the airlines keep placing restrictions on what the miles can be redeemed for.
Titanic was not only a motion picture production. It was a real news event way back when. I’m sure the YWN was referring to the original Titanic and not to a Hollywood production.
Except for the fact that the last survivior of the Titanic died in 2009 as reported on YWN so nobody alive can make that comparison.January 22, 2012 5:57 pm at 5:57 pm in reply to: question about rabbenu tam zman for ending shabbos #845607
One is permited to Daven before the Zman. Making Havdalah before the Zman (without a candle) is a bit more complicated and IIRC it can only be done when the person cannot do it after the Zman.
Regarding Havdalah after the Zman but before the time your Minhag is to end Shabbas (unless you really follow Rabbenu Tam) you could be Yotzei if you wanted to but probably wouldn’t want to.January 20, 2012 5:27 am at 5:27 am in reply to: Can a candidate with an immoral past be president? #845094
Are we talking about the same case? A married man and an unmarried woman do not constitute an adulterous relationship according to Halacha.January 20, 2012 3:52 am at 3:52 am in reply to: Can a candidate with an immoral past be president? #845092
Being faithful to ones wife isn’t an obligation under the Noahide laws.
There are three basic rules that need to be understood first:
The order of operations in this case is first parentesis, then powers and finally multiplication.
When raising the product of 2 factors by a power, both factors need to be raised.
When muliplying the product of 2 factors by another factor, only 1 factor needs to be multiplied.
Starting with 3m^3 (which cannot be simplified) the first step is to square both 3 and m^3 giving 9m^6. The multiplication step only needs to be performed on one of the factors so we’ll just multiply 9 by 4 giving the result of 36m^6
I first came across Gershonides a couple of weeks ago…I laffed. 🙂
Philosophers are assigned Latin surnames if they don’t already have one. That way they can be referanced consistantly in other works. (I’m not sure why there is an exception for Greek philosophers.)
I’ve had 6 donuts but like spread over 4 years. How can someone physically eat that many donuts?
R’ Avigdor Miller said that when saying Shelo Asani Isha, one should thank Hashem for pockets on his clothing, I guess there is more to be thankful for.
I forced myself to learn how to swallow. M&Ms are great for learning (though it feels like such bal tashchis).
It’s definately Bal Tashchis. You should a Parve Heimish knock-off instead.
Today, I ate 6 krispy kreme donuts.
1 original glazed
1 chocolate frosted cake donut
1 cinnamon bun
1 boston creme
1 chocolate mousse
1 frosted blueberry
And they all tasted just fine. Exactly like cholov hacompany.
Next time be sure to try a sour creme doughnut. I don’t recall ever seeing one at DD but KK makes them.
I still haven’t figured out why nobody (that I know of) makes a Cholov Yisroel doughnut. Doughnuts are supposed to be made with milk.
This has its source in torah sh’baal pe, that part of torah that until today has not been written in books.
You’ll have to provide a better source than that.
The best solution at home, is to install K9 web protection,
which is free. (do a google search for it). As long as
nobody knows the password, the only way to defeat it, is to
reinstall the operating system.
I have succsessfully uninstalled K9 Web Protection without knowing the password. It’s not that hard.
How funny would that be if I ask my little corner yiddishe, kosher grocery store if he can carry in stock “fair trade” coffee.
I see nothing wrong with it. I’ve asked shopkeepers in the past for Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena.
I always thought one was not supposed to initiate conversation with a mourner. How is that possible with a phone call?
Apple hasn’t committed to replace all units with 6th gen models. Once they have enough 1st gen units back they’ll probably refurbish them and start sending them back.
Watch the Yetzer Hora in action…we started talking about Torah and look where the conversation is veering…
Ablution is to broad of a term, baptism is more specific.
It was the name of a ship.
I think you got your movies mixed up. The Matrix had a ship named Nebuchadnezzar. I don’t remember any ship with that name in Star Wars.
His position (which is shared by others as well) is that Christianity wasn’t started by Jesus but by Paul.
No, he earned that title by resisting Potifar’s wife.
A zonah is not a paramour. That would probably be closer to the definition of pilegesh.
No a Pilegesh is a comcubine and a Noef is a paramour. I’m not sure what a Zonah is. (Although in the broadest definition Zonah could mean paramour.)January 8, 2012 9:56 pm at 9:56 pm in reply to: Winter Vacation & Minyan Problem- your opinion please #842420
I have yartzeit that shabbos and really need maftir and an amud to daven by.
No, you don’t need maftir. The gabbai can give you whichever of the 11 aliyos he chooses to give you (depending on your yichus).
There is no subsitute for Heinz Ketchup, for that reason I don’t eat any ketchup on Pesach.January 8, 2012 6:17 am at 6:17 am in reply to: Winter Vacation & Minyan Problem- your opinion please #842400
Don’t take my quote out of context and then attack me for it.January 8, 2012 5:28 am at 5:28 am in reply to: Winter Vacation & Minyan Problem- your opinion please #842395
Am I wrong for doing this?
It doesn’t pass my smell test.
Can the caterer keep me from joining the minyan?
I’d imagine that the room booked for minyanim is his to decide who is allowed in.
Am I possibly stealing?
I don’t know.
That being said, If I was at a hotel and learned that there was a private minyan, I would attempt to join.
Kiddushin (18a I think) calls Esav a “Yisrael Mumar”.
Maybe, but when I first looked at it, it seemed like how to catigorize Eisav is not obvious.
I found a Gemara though which seems to say we hold like the brothers. Is that Yadua too?
Which Gemora is that?
I’m just curious, by the way, where did you hear that Yosef thought they were B’nei Noach while the brothers thought they were B’nei Yisrael? I thought that was my Chiddush.
I thought it was common knowledge, based on Eiver Min HaChai. (It also makes an interisting drasha on Genesis chapter 44 where for a brief moment Yosef and Yehuda switch their views.)
And thanks for the info regarding a half sibling. I’ll have to look it up, I didn’t know that.
so that makes them a brother and sister through father only (a half sibling) which is permitted for bnei noach
First of all regardless of what was supposed to happen, Shimon and Dinah were full siblings. Secondly do you have a source that half siblings are permitted for Bnei Noach?
Anyways, only Yosef held that they were Bnei Noach, the rest of the brothers (at least the first ten, not sure about Binyamin) held that the Halachos of Bnei Yisroel applied to them.
Isnt a mashgiach an eid?
The Mashgiach’s role is to ensure that the establishment is following protocal and inform the Rav Hamachshir of any problems. The decision of whether an establishment is certified is made by the Rav Hamachshir and not by the Mashgiach.
Yaakov only kept the Mitzvos when he was is Eretz Yisroel and this occured in Mitzrayim.
However, he may as well just remarry without that, since that is just a cheirem, while you note that the Ran holds divorcing against her will is d’oraisoh.
But he probably wouldn’t be able to get a Mesader Kiddushin with the Cheirem in effect.
Oops, I made a slight mistake. The Philadelphia Mint will be closing on Janurary 3rd for renovations, until then it is closed for the New Year.
So then should I get for all 4 wheels, or only for the drive wheels.
On a vehicle only drive wheels should have chains.
They are size p185/ 65 R14
You’ll need chains sized specifically for your tires. Check with the manufacturer, most passenger cars require S.A.E Class “S” chains but some cannot use any chains at all. At 14″ you probably won’t find much of a variety.
Although the Mint headquarters are in Washington DC, there is no mint there.
The current mints are:
Philadelphia – Currently closed for renovations
Denver – (303) 405-4761
San Francisco – No tours
West Point – No tours
What’s the point of writing in Yiddish when the vast majority of YWN readers read English?
What about limiting the number of accounts from each ip address?
What about limiting the number of accounts from Australia?
popa: You are definately not a retard. This does’t mean you’re not crazy.
So what was Shlomo planning to do if both mothers said don’t chop?
In that case he wouldn’t have chopped. The real question is what if both of the mothers would have listened to Shlomo, after all if he says that it’s a fair solution who were they to question him?
I think it would be a good idea to add personal blockers to people we suspect to be trolls
Following threads is complicated enough due to the moderation delay. Imagine if the thread was going in opposite directions because two groups of posters aren’t seeing each others posts.
you haven’t answered his question
You mean how a nonexisting rule would apply to a hypotetical user?
But what abt us quiet, innocent people who might have a question or discussion to start?
I’d imagine that users who are here for five months and have already responded to 43 threads would be able to start a discussion.
