What’s mainstream chasidim? The Alter Rebbe succeeded Rav Dov Ber ben Avraham of Mezeritch, who was a disciple of the Baal Shem Tov. The Alter Rebbe’s father was close to the Besh”t as well. If anything, Satmar is late to the party.
Boro Park has more supply withing close proximity to each other. Lakewood there may be a lot of stores, but much more spread out and car centric.
The Secular Zionists mission is to shmad up every Jewish kid to be brainwashed in the army and become secular. How many chiloni kids don’t know how to say shma and never heard of Moshe Rabeinu. So yes becfore the mass aliyah movements, there were Jews living in EY who found situations that were manageable and their kids didn’t fall prey to the secular zionists.
Every neighborhood that has yiddishkeit in the Tri-state area have shtark young couples. Monsey has all kinds of neighborhoods ranging from more modern/RW YU to chasidish.May 22, 2023 5:07 pm at 5:07 pm in reply to: Imagine if Trump removed IRS Teams for Investigating #2192365
He just funds them in Ukraine instead.
Avirah so then don’t use the electricity or roads it provides.
The biggest Rabbonim have filters. Ain Apotropus L’arayos.
It’s not the seminaries fault. Their purpose is good and needed. It fills a void that no program in America fills. We need a way to continue the ideals they learn in seminary in a balanced way once they get home. In an Israel Seminary, they have a chance to grow in a more spiritual environment. They aren’t constantly bombarded with goyish advertisements and ideals when they go out into the street. The Avir in EY is irreplaceable (Regardless of what a Lakewood PR spokesman would say). The American Beis Yaakov system may have outlived their purpose. These girls come out of it as confused as anything.
Marxist, the IDF wasn’t official on its own then.; they were with the British. No there were special Rabbis and those who were deep in Kabbalah who davened that it shouldn’t happen.
Don’t be so confident that Israel can just obliterate a country. They are still under the norms of International Law. They had a miracle in 1967. Since them they haven’t been as successful in warfare. The EU UN Arabs Russia and China would not let it happen. They also wouldn’t want to ruin the Abraham Accords.
They didn’t bother the old yishuv as much because they were respectful and didn’t come to be kovesh the land forcefully. The Torah that spread in the Old Yishuv is unmatched and these Zionists want to destroy it by drafting people into the army.
Be’din Malkus? This is a shalton hakofrim. They’re ratzchanim. Rav Chaim is right. These people are nicer to Arabs than Yiddishkeit.
The Zionists definitely reitz upped the Arabs. This is valid and something Zionists wouldn’t admit. Not every Jew who moved to EY in the 2nd and 3rd waves were ideological zionists; they wanted to leave Europe where it was dangerous and after WWI very unstable. The British thankfully offered to give them land where they could leave peacefully. The British bit off more than they could chew and brought instability to every place they occupied. Jews wanting to return to their homeland isn’t provoking Arabs. The Arabs wouldn’t accept any deal that allows Israel to exist. It’s they who need to fix it. Jews gave back most of Chevron, Gaza, West Bank, what more needs to be done?
It’s not about wanting or not wanting. If it’s Heimish, anything goes and qualifies.
I’m seeing it creep into organizations that aren’t officially Chabad.
It’s 100% better than sports games and beer parties. But are these farbrengen going on too much to the point that it takes away from learning?
Are you surprised? J Street are big supporters of Democrats. If you vote Democrat you are with them.
The Democrat party of the south wasn’t far right on economic issues(TVA – FDR program). I’m talking about from the 1970s and until now. It went for Carter twice and Clinton in 92. GA in particular is different from say Mississippi and Alabama.
Obama didn’t get Rubashkin out of jail; Trump did.
er Trump isn’t in office but there are currently quite a few loud Democrats in office who are anti-Israel if they don’t outright support BDS they are supportive of other pro-Palestinian policies. ANTIFA and BLM caused more violence than this meeting.
Reb E because you are a Democrat and like Republicans who cave to Democrats.
Jackk the rot is a disconnect lack of awareness of how to appeal to a national electorate. Trump won because he ran as something different than the old republicans who don’t do anything.
Where does it say you can’t go “Kulah shopping” Muttar is mussar assur is assur.
Avirah but clearly there are a lot of Singles out there for different reasons who struggle because they don’t feel like they have their place in Klal Yisroel like married people do. What do you tell someone who goes on dates connects with shadchanim and does all the hishtadlus and yet Friday night and YT they are lonely and don’t have shabbos and YT in the same way? Change singles is a very simplistic answer to an issue that is complex.
agutyar also In litvish communities most people don’t typically have one Rav for Halacha. There needs to be more reasons than Rav so and so said.
But why does one Rabbi have to be the one Rabbi for everything? It’s all within the framework of Halacha?
We should be concerned with anti-Semitic attacks but running to the ADL and embracing the cancel culture makes it worse. The left wing Jewish organizations only claim anti-semitism when someone attacks Soros and if it’s someone who was remotely affiliated with a republican or Trump but they don’t claim anti-semitism when it comes from a fellow democrat like Ilhan Omar Tlaib AOC a fanatical muslim the government of Iran or other anti-Israel organization.
Jackk it’s a sad day when you’re defending LGBT and trans people for the good of your party.
Avirah it’s not clear if this was as rampant among all sefardim. The French occupied Syria in the early 20th Century and that had an influence on them becoming more westernized and less Arabicized. Co-ed schools help Jews who are weak in their Judaism not intermarry.
AAQ did you ever hear of the Spice Route? Sefardi merchants. They’ve been merchants going back decades which requires them to venture out of their shtetlach.
Though Acharonim offer a different Pshat than Rashi, none state that their pshat supercedes Rashi.
You could see what the old yishuv was like. Not too much development and slight disagreement with authority driving people away.
It could have helped more Jews survive and defend themselves. If the Warsaw ghetto had a United front they could’ve been more successful. Without an armed Israel the state of world Jewry would be perilous today.
Philosopher let’s say you have a client whose born male and thinks he’s a female and says he feels really depressed and wants to end his life, how would you treat him? There are quacks in every profession but the job of a therapist isn’t to be a Rabbi. A Rabbi gives moral guidance, a therapist tries to help you live your life. Mussar doesn’t work for someone who isn’t balanced.
The have an effective majority with Harris as the tiebreaker but if the Republicans are at 50, it’s harder for the Democrats to get things done.
Well like COVID. There are a lot of ignorant people in the frum world about mental illness and effective treatment and we don’t need quacks running around.
There’s a way other than the Lakewood Bubble.
On average how many people do Lakewood Kollelim connect with people who aren’t frum and help make them frum? The numbers aren’t nearly as successful as those of Kiruv organizations and Chabad.
Jackk if the Democrats weren’t emptying the treasury for Ukraine would you be the same passionate? let’s be honest you’re a DNC hack
In 2018 she never conceded. Democrats spent 4 years trying to prove Trump Russia collusion. Why is it taking so long to count these races? Democrat tricks?
People don’ always have the same signatures
Because Republicans would be responsible to vote on Election Day, bring their IDs or have one in order to vote, and make sure their absentee ballots on time while democrats know a certain demographic within their base are less likely to follow the norms of voting.
Al Gore was
Yserbius you’re probably the type to blindly trust government shutdowns and vaccine mandates and that there’s nothing to Hunter Biden just because the DNC tells you so.
Republicans don’t have a platform. Like is said in my OP. There’s no leadership and platform. While you might not like things like M4A, free child care, and free college, LGBT rights, and abortions'(I don’t). The reality is the country is left of center now rather than center-right. Progressivism is on the rise and not going away. There’s no clear platform in the republican party to counter these ideas. While it’s easy to blame Trump for his firebrand style, he’s there because there’s a void in the party.
jackk because the Democrats are in power and are running all the federal agencies
Shimon Nodel maybe he’s attracted to these friends because there’s something he’s being deprived of at home.
Rav Shach said to vote Netanyahu vs Peres
Right after Oslo and giving away most of Hebron, the violence got worse.
Yemenites were for a long time a very isoldated community. They might have a mesorah on some things such as identifying grasshoppers or their dikduk, but the Rambam had to teach them a lot of basic things. When it comes to learning in the Ashkenaz world you can trace american yeshivas back to who their roshei yeshiva learned under in Europe. When you go back enough you can trace it back to Rashi and Rabbeinu Gershom Meir Hagolah. In the sefardi world it some came from Spain and some of them (Mizrachi Jews) were there from the beginning of exile.
YU is different than most yeshivas because it’s a University which tries to abide by the guidelines of having a university while having a Yeshiva and Semicha program. If there wasn’t social pressures to have these clubs, they wouldn’t. But now there are lawsuits and it gets complicated how we deal with these things. There’s nothing wrong with having a therapy group if it’s done withing the right parameters. YU in general I think makes up its standards as it goes along, as there isn’t a Rav Soloveitchik Zt”L to give guidance. There are frum people who went to YU who learn every day make honest livings whose wives dress tznius and there are some people who went to YU who know as much yiddishkeit as a conservative Jew. It’s not a perfect system, I don’t think even most of modern orthodox people would admit to but for a certain demographic in America it serves a purpose. The battles of a community in a more established Yeshivish community is not the same as those of in a more American modern community. Growth takes time. I think in the long run the “Right Wing” YU types will establish more baal habatishe institutions.
