    If you feel the waiter did a good job (though most times it’s the chef who’s slow or if food is made too fast it won’t come out right) it’s your right to tip. Paying waiter shouldn’t be thr responsibility of the customer. The customer already pays for labor.

    Maybe every employee should get a tip? Maybe the cashier at a grocery should get ripped as well

    Its the responsibility of the restaurant owners to pay their employees fairly, not the customers. Customers already pay the price of labor.

    The job of a mashgiach temidi is not to tell people what they should do with their money; it’s to make sure that the food the customers are eating is kosher. Not everybody who eats out can afford to tip. The prices of kosher food leave less money for customers to tip.

    Maybe if kosher prices weren’t too high, people would have more money to tip. Stick to your job.

    That isn’t a chilul Hashem. Stick to your job. Tell their bosses to give them raises. The prices of kosher are expenses as is and you are part of the cost.

    I think you should go to a yeshiva in Israel. You’ll get to experience being in an authentic Jewish environment and it will impact your life forever. What happens in yeshiva in America is that someone in your situation will be accepted in yeshivish that don’t have the best environment for growth. Though difficulty in yeshiva can mean a lot of things.

    There was an actual picture of Franken. There was an allegation against Kavanaugh which was unfounded. The Kennedy family are known womanizers.

    There’s one daas yochid in Flatbush who allows it. Then there are unnamed rebbes from boro park allowing ex Chasidim to carry in Flatbush on shabbos.

    You’re not an apikores for asking a question about halacha, but you might be for going against R Moshe. When will these rebbes who are permitting the eruv speak publicly?

    How come no rebbe makes an official statement that the Flatbush eruv is kosher? There was a kol kore written by many gedolim, not too long ago,that it’s not a good eruv?

    Converting someone isn’t being a light unto the nations. You refer him to a rabbi who deals with these things, if you feel that he’s sincere. I heard a rabbi say that the reason why the number of converts have gone up is because there’s a divine force that is replacing the reform, those who intermarry, and other secular Jews, with converts who seriously take up Judaism. If you go to AISH Jerusalem or Ohr Somayach, you’ll find converts who learn gemara 8 hours a day. And some of these converts know a lot of tanach, from when they were raised as christians.

    Besides gay rights. What about the party that is anti-Israel and sympathizes with Hamas? You elect people like Corey Booker, and when they get comfortable and after paying you off, they expose themselves for what they are.

    Joseph, some people who follow the CR, most of Williamsburg, a good portion of boro park, flatbush, and other neighborhoods, as well.
    Yitzchokm, that’s where they get you. They slowly shmad us, by giving us money.

    Joseph I think ubiq is talking about explanatory kinnos, where only a few are said btzibbur but the ones that are said are preceded by speeches relating to the kinnah. Sometimes the speeches are relevant sometimes they are hot takes which are inspirational but have nothing to do with the kinnah

    CTL I wasn’t aware of the barber renting chairs arrangement. However this isn’t 100% of the case among barber shops. Tipping allowances still allows EMPLOYERS to avoid paying EMPLOYEES the full minimum wage from their own pockets.

    CTLawyer What you’re saying is true but it still helps them get around not paying $7.25 out of their own pocket. I know what the laws are in regards to this.

    ZionGate ill have an easier time explaining to my family why I’d go to Uman than going to a Sephardic minyan. Though I’d love to go to a Sephardic minyan. When I was in Israel and remember the vibes I’d get from the sefardim singing their selichos.

    The underlying issue is, should rosh Hashanah be a time for trips? Maybe making a trip to Israel where our homeland is, Should be a better place.
