    CTL was a typo. I meant employers 1099 their workers. I know what the definitions of what an employee, worker, and independent contractor are.

    Gadol and prominence don’t always correlate. The yeshiva was floundering in the 90s already, at no fault of Rav Shmuel Greenbaum. Torah Temimah mesivta has a bigger presence than elementary. Chaim Berlin has a presence because there are people there that who know how to run an institution.

    Torah Temimah and Chaim Berlin are ahead in terms of presence.

    You did and it’s not false. I live in Brooklyn and its prominence fell about 25 years ago.

    Unfortunately it doesn’t stop frum employees from 1099ing their workers. If these people ran commerce there would be 1910s child labor

    Yes there is. Halacha recognizes fair value. Yes technically slaves are allowed but there are costly provisions.

    Yeshiva aren’t saks fifth avenue. Parents send their kids to yeshiva because they don’t really have a choice. Yes, tuition should come before expensive vacations or bungalows. Should parents have less kids because yeshiva costs are too high? If people in the frum NY are a had guts they’d send their kids to public school, to boycott the tuition costs. It’s pretty obvious which crisis will be covered in the Jewish publications.

    If someone has such an addiction that the fast becomes so unbearable, it’s allowed b’tzina. On a practical side, it will make you thirsty and probably cause headrush.

    Some are literally non-jew because they amd their parents marry non-jews. Some have a status of a non-jew. There’s nothing to be done about them. If they had full control of the US govt, yeshivas would be banned. Their religion is to be far left

    It’s a problem. You can thank all the Jews who helped Obama and the demd gain a mandate which was set to destroy any good that was left In American culture which is based on Jewish ideas. In every generation there are going to be fake rabbis. You can’t worry about them.

    ZahavasDad The Chilul hashem has been because the narrative has come out that these people are black and Rav Yitzchak Yosef has called it racism.

    That wouldn’t mean the eidah is causing the chillul hashem. Learn what a chillul hashem and chumra are. That sounds like a political statement.

    Chillul hashem doesn’t mean pleasing the liberal media.

    Joseph “the general public doesn’t need to worry.” You aren’t qualified to comment on this because you don’t have kids. It does happen. The yetzer harah has an open door for any sin.

    President Jefferson Davis. Jews thrived in the South, before the civil war. Lincoln expanded the power of the federal government; very overrated. Other choices would be Andrew Jackson, Theodore Roosevelt, Warren Harding, and Calvin Coolidge.

    It’s called life. You need money to pay for things. Utimately, Hashem is the one who decides how much you get and where it’s coming from. It’s a very big factor. The politically correct marriage therapist/shadchan crowd will try to make believe that it’s not there. It’s a factor. It could be manifested in a number of ways: does man have a job or in school to pursue a medical or law degree? Does he plan on learning in Kollel. The check won’t pay for your utilities, rent, or food. In that case, does she have a job or do both or one family have the money to support this?

    They invite Hamas and mess over Jews. They cause thousands oof Jews to drive on shabbos. They officiate questionable weddings. They want to destroy everything that’s holy in Israel. Thry preach that voting Obama and democrats will bring tikkun plan and that Donald Trump (best president to the Jews, so far) is Hitler.

    TGI I don’t know if you are aware but Chuck Schumer blamed Trump for rising gas prices. Though Chuck mainly deals with Washington, he should propose the idea of taking out sales tax from gas prices to our local Democrat thiefs, instead of trolling the president.

    Also people who live in nyc pay: property, city income, state income, and federal income taxes. Some employers have to pay employer portion of fed tax. Florida and Texas don’t have state income taxes. Only rich ny real estate hockers get away with not paying taxes.

    This is very subjective. Really depends on how much said kid is eexposed to the outside world. I would say don’t restrict it but ddon’t invite said kid to listen. In the middle East, the Rabbonim new the Arabic music.
