Are there any Sephardi shuls in Brooklyn that don’t abide by the SY takkana against gerim?
It’s mainly aimed at people who convert for marriage which was a big issue when the takkanas came out. They aren’t against geirim in principle. Learn context. These other sephardic shuls in Brooklyn are newer and thus the issues of intermarriage aren’t the same now.
YU was always part of Yeshiva College, which follows a more Hirschian model of Torah im Derech Eretz.
If there wouldn’t be YU, there wouldn’t be Touro, there wouldn’t be an Agudah COPE program, and litvish yeshivas and seminaries wouldn’t combine with pay for degree private colleges to get degrees. It’s always been the same but things changed. In the litvish world it became a stigma to affiliate yourself with a University.
UJM there are bochurim in the closet in yeshivas. I heard stories that I won’t get into. So if you don’t think that there are bochurim struggling with this Yetzer Hara in the Daled Koslos of the best yeshivas, you just don’t have your finger on the pulse of where society is. Not everyone in YU agrees that there should be this club.
Legally today, if someone sued a Beis Midrash program that is an AARTS program or getting government funds that they don’t grant people certain rights, they would also be sued.
I see how you’re framing the question. For one, Rav Yitzchok (Yitzchak) Lichtenstein, Torah Vodaath.
Adding to that list:
R Avigdor Miller
UJM maybe you’d like to list them but there’s quite a list of American rishwi yeshiva that got semicha from RIETS.
Avirah if you want to be technical, every yeshiva that gives a college transcripts(AARTS) is technically the same thing. RIETS is a Yeshiva program that’s part of YU.
You forget to list the great Roshei Yeshiva of Rabbeinu Itzchak Elchonon Theological Seminary who are manhig people in how to be a baal habos and strive for excellence in learning
Like Harvard is the top academics in the university, Brisk is the tops in learning. There are schools throughout the world that pride themselves in helping students get into the top Universities, to get accreditation. Similarly in the Olam Hayeshivos, if their bochurim are getting into Brisk, they can be recognized in preparing their students to get into the top yeshiva. It doesn’t mean that Brisk is the best for everyone nor is the top university the best for everyone. There are people who excel in Yeshivas that you never heard of. The standard of learning among yeshivas is highest in Brisk.
Amil were no longer in the era pf jfk. The Marxist academics have taken over the democrat party. Bernie himself says he’s a socialist.
As a republican I think with gerrymandering that they will take the House but not by much and the democrats will pick up seats in the Senate. I wouldn’t be surprised if the democrats keep both chambers. The GOL has no vision and ideas in a post trump world.June 16, 2022 11:21 am at 11:21 am in reply to: is Yeshiva system making talmiday chachamim? or stifling them? #2097532
Unless you have a good memory you aren’t going to remember everything. Most Rabbonim specialize in different areas of Torah. You have to be Amal. Sleeping through a daf shiur isn’t ameilus.
You probably don’t know much about Jewish history but before Artscroll there were many seforim translated into English by Reform/Conservative Jews. I wouldn’t be surprised that people from Lakewood/Brooklyn don’t know this.
You can’t trust democrats who gave millions in weapons to the Taliban to pass sensible gun laws. The answer is that it isn’t only guns that’s the issue. They get ideas from Hollywood a democrat propaganda arm and video games.
You can’t trust democrats to pass sensible gun laws. they’ll just embolden the criminals and hurt the innocent middle class even more. That’s the truth. Should there be sensible gun laws? Yes. But Dems don’t go about any issue the right way.
There are tight gun laws in LA NYC and Chicago. Doesn’t stop the gangs. FBI sits on their laurels when they get a tip. Mental health isn’t addressed.
UJM no it wasn’t the US government who emancipated them. Do you read? And the money comes from the Treasury — public funds — from you and I. If you want to help a black person, donate to one of their causes.
Why don’t you donate to a black cause rather than make people who had no one to do with it pay. Maybe Jews should get it for getting turned away before the Holocaust.
Huju So did he know that he was empowering radical muslims in Iran? He was a fool. There’s a reason he lost in many safe blue states in 1980
Well for gas he made a policy decision to make the US more reliant on foreign countries. His head of transportation the symbol for Toeivah says let them all drive teslas.
He could have maybe done something to prevent Russia from invading. Now he’s acting after the fact and looking tough. If he really cared about Ukraine he would have done something before but this is just a distraction away from the terrible job he’s done.
Was it a good idea to give the Taliban billions of dollars in weapons?
Either he’s stupid or someone like Soros is pulling his strings.
He made people lose jobs over his vaccine mandates now boasts how jobs have gone up… because he eliminated them first.
The stock markets are doing terribly. Overall everything has gone worse under Biden’s leadership. He saw russia take crimea as VP and invade Ukraine now as president. He hasn’t learned from mistakes; he’s using an opportunity to look tough on Russia after the fact but he’s going about it completely wrong. Cancelling everything in Russia is hurting the American economy. Not everyone can rely on subways to get around or can have an electric car. He’s a moron.
Lol @lostpark not at all. Many Israelis drink coffee out of plastic cups.
Another one of many fascist liberal laws
You don’t find this extemism in Litvish circles.February 16, 2022 12:45 pm at 12:45 pm in reply to: NPR Is a Joke and Shouldn’t be Funded by Tax Dollars! #2061037
Actually they got a lot in Stimulus money so you don’t know what you’re talking about, Luna
Because the election was stolen
If Democrats aren’t communists, why aren’t they letting Cubans in as refugees. Seems they are helping out a communist regime. Also they tolerate Iranian terrorists.
CTL what world do you live in?
People from Cuba voted for Trump because they see the Democrats going down the path of communism. The cheap statement written by someone in the White House isn’t enough. Most of the Democrats between 18 and 60 are communists.
Jackk Biden doesn’t know what he wore yesterday. He is a figurehead of the Harris ran white house.
CTL correct just most of the democrats who do support social programs are Communists. Yoi have a limited view of today’s world in your CT compound. Spend some time in the village downtown Brooklyn west coast and you’ll have a clue.
FDR was a light communist as well.
I vote Republican usually but are you really voting for a guy who walks around in a red beret?

flowers I’ve asked friends and they weren’t very helpful. I started going to a dating coach. He’s helped a little but so far the results haven’t been realized. I think dating coaching is a scam but I’m doing it as part of hishtadlus.
Thank you all who responded, it was helpful to get this off my chest. I am a quiet person in real life. Most people don’t know my political opinions. And I am polite in real situations.December 7, 2020 9:43 am at 9:43 am in reply to: Was Every Married Guy Perfect when they Went Out on Dates? #1926565
@RebEliezer I never bring up politics.
@rechDin Dressing I dress in the nicest suits. Car I drive a nice car. Figure I’m in pretty solid shape. Communication – it’s something I have been working on and the most recent ones there haven’t been silent pauses. I have a solid career path going for me also.
100%. Vote in person and you should be verified by showing photo ID. If you aren’t responsible enough to get an ID, don’t vote.
Not Trump but definitely someone who will put America ahead of the globalists and one who doesn’t stab Israel in the back. I like Ted Cruz but in 2016 I felt he couldn’t have flipped PA WI and MI. He wasn’t running a campaign to bring manufacturing back to America. I don’t think he could win a presidential election. The GOP has a problem. They don’t have anybody. Mike Pence happens to be very good. You’d have the results of a Trump Presidency sans covid like a good economy friendly to the jews stop Radical Muslims immigration etc but less tweet distractions and he wouldn’t curse out someone like McCain. Nikki Haley will run but I don’t think she’ll get far. Trey Gowdy is a great speaker and debates well. He knows the DC swamp and is more America first than Ted Cruz. One of the Trumps will make an attempt probably Donald Jr but I would not endorse him because I don’t think he can win. Basically the GOP needs someone who can stand up to the Democrat bullying. Pence or Trey Gowdy would be my 2 favorite candidates.
Jackk Biden threatened to cut off aid to Israel in 1982 as a Senator. Vice Presidents are also involved in the foreign affairs of a president. Being the swamp hack he is he obviously never disagreed with anything Obama said.
Of course. Democrat Presidents always do. Oslo disaster & Iran deal come to mind; Obama meddled in Israeli elections to try to oust Netanyahu in order to get a weaker prime minister in Trump, that way he could force Israel to make concessions and give up more land. Trump didn’t start any wars. Under Biden the radical Muslims will come out of the woodwork and we’ll go back to pre-2016 conditions. My hope is that countries like Egypt and UAE who have tensions with Iran as well help keep things safe in the middle east, as those countries don’t either like Iran.
So explain why in the battleground states they found just enough mail in ballots to give Biden the lead, some of which took 3 days.
The media doesn’t declare the Presidency
Because the democrats rigged the election. For 4 years democrats refused to accept the results of the 2016 election. Donald Trump has the right to drag this out until January.
It’s not easy to get Canadian citizenship. They might be liberal in a lot of areas but immigrating there is not easy.
The 2 GA senate races will go to a run-off. If the Dems flip those seats it will be 50/50 with Harris as the tie-breaker. That wouldn’t be good.
Biden does not have good character. He cheated through law school and plagiarized a speech during his 88 try. He’s a liar through and through. If it’s about character Biden isn’t it.
Jews care about the results. And the results of the Trump presidency has been good for the Jews..
Mod can you delete this thread. It was a foolish mistake. Thank you.
It’s not unheard of. Nowadays it’s extremely difficult to get accepted first year. Mir bochurim don’t get into the dorm right away so you’ll need to find a Dira. You have to make sure you’re going to be in a dira where guys are solid guys.
