Sorry Baruch Hashem I’m not deaf, although I know people who are. How do mute people make Brochos and things?April 23, 2009 1:18 am at 1:18 am in reply to: #643387
So are you saying that if I was going to get internet service but can pick up my neighbor’s network, that would be stealing from the company? Is that like burning a CD from your neighbor and not buying it?April 23, 2009 1:10 am at 1:10 am in reply to: Frum Girls Dancing on the Dance Dance Revolution at Arcades #689242
The girls who are dancing it, either don’t see that it’s wrong, or didn’t think so for which all these idea’s would work. The other type of girls would know that it’s wrong but don’t care, so these things probably won’t work.
No, it’s just curious. Nothing about communicating with deaf people. But if someone was deaf, could they?
There’s a very good book called Halachiclly Speaking, it’s hard to find Halachos for everyday living. It’s like those things you hear about but aren’t sure if they’re true.
What’s the difference between the two types of lightning? You don’t make a Brocho during a lightning storm on lightning?
Yeah Lipa was very good, I thought that Joe DiMaggio’s card and the Athiest Convention were also good. The Birchas Hachama video thing was amazing as well.
Random question are you allowed to sign language even after you wash before hamotzi, or is this considered talking?
I saw one the liesence plate said SHABBOS and on the thing around it, on top it said remember the… SHABBOS…underneath it said and sanctify it.
I did that. It’s really great. It tells you what to say for the day.
If someone wants to wear a hat and jacket in 90+ degree weather, what do you care? There is nothing wrong not wearing it, you don’t and they do, so what? If you meet someone you know wearing a hat and jacket, it’s okay, maybe they’re used to it. I don’t know how hot a hat and jacket are, but it seems similar that if a non-Jew asks a frum girl what’s it like to only wear skirts, and cover their elbows and knees in 90+ degree weather, it’s like I don’t know. It’s normal, what’s it like not to?
an open book – I’m not sure but it just seems that way. Why do you think otherwise?
just me – I’m not sure if it was Achar. I don’t remember who, it was someone’s Rebbi, but it’s said because of “Tzemer Yevani”, that it never left his lips and he was always reading Greek literature.
Whoever said money can’t buy happiness doesn’t know where to shop. Just think even after everything that you have to pay the left over money (a couple of millions) is sure more then you have left over lying around now, so why not splurge? I was thinking of getting a Rolls Royce and buying a house in Israel.
R’ Noach Weinberg was really an introvert, but he saw a need in Klal Yisroel and therefore changed his nature. He also started 8 yeshivos before Aish HaTorah. When he went to get a brocho from his Rav, I think it was Rav Hutner, the Rav gave him three pieces of advice. He followed the first two, but only suceeded when he listened to the third which wasn’t to take on partners.
Music affects the soul. So listening to Beethoven is probably better then listening to Matisyahu. I think Achar or someone in the Gemara that became an apikorus, was because he always was singing Greek songs. If he was such a big talmud chacham and music affected him so much then Kal V’chomer us.
But do the words make a difference? Like if it’s a Pasuk that is being sung to the tune of a Beetles song, is it better to listen to the original or the Jewish version?

aussie – hatzlocah. I also almost forgot. Luckily someone at the Seder remembered and said it so I just said it then to0.
I know someone who put a sign on their bed to say sefira, but don’t know if it worked.
So nobody did anything at all on Chol Hamoed? What a shame. My family would kill if we didn’t do anything.
If I don’t know what I do, how could I change it?
kapusta did you watch the Oorah CD? It has a whole presentation on Birchas Hachama. I think there is a machlokes in the Gemara and one person says in Tishrei and the other Nissan. They paskin that we go according to Tishrei for Shanim and Nissan I think for the creation of the world, I think.

Thanks all for your suggestions.
AOB no one could survive a 110 fever and only miss school for one day. Sorry it’s impossible.
aussieboy the problem with telling her straight out is that she has low self esteem issues I think. Her parents treat her like garbage.
Maybe we’ll right her a letter nicely saying it to her.
what lying? My friend tried having a heart to heart kind of talk with her about just everything and she was just bragging and lying. It’s hard, I don’t talk to her really outside of school and she’s a really nice girl.
There recently was a death of a 98 year-old lady named Irena. During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the WarsawGhetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist. She had an ‘ ulterior motive ‘ … She KNEW what the Nazi’s plans were for the Jews, (being German.) Irena smuggled infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried and she carried in the back of her truck a burlap sack, (for larger kids.) She also had a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers of course wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants noises. During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants. She was caught, and the Nazi ‘ s broke both her legs, arms and beat her severely. Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out and kept them in a glass jar, buried under a tree in her back yard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived it and reunited the family. Most of course had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.
Last year Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize … She was not selected.

GOD BLESS HER May she rest in Peace.
My screen name has nothing to do with my age. I am not 22. It’s more like a sentance. 2 2 old gold. I can’t really explain.
I have a “friend” that lies and brags about the lies and everything else. It is really bad to the extent that when we are all sitting aroud talking and she joins soem friends just leave because they can’t take the lying. The others turn her off. We all feel bad for her, her parents treat her like garbage and she is really a nice girl. How do we get her to stop lying without telling her outright?
How do you break, it’s more like a bad Middah, but you don’t know when you do it? It’s like getting angry and people tell you, you have to stop getting angry but you don’t know when you get angry (it’s not that)?
My friend said that Pathway to Heaven or Prayer was really inspiring. It might help (for Shmoneh Esrai) to picture standing in front of a King and that you can’t get anything without his permission. I also have more Kavaneh on the Bakashas HaYachid since it’s more personal. Think of the meaning of the words and apply them to yourself.
When is it?
What about the YBC live?
Say something nice to at least one person, but not obvious.
Do some secret act of kindness a day.
kapusta – I asked my father if you could say amen after you wash and he said yes as long as you didn’t say Hamotazi yet.

Someone who just posted on New Members thread. She didn’t want to come back on because of the response she got to her hi.
Princess123 thinks you guys are dissing her and think she’s weird. She’s really very interesting, funny, smart girl. Can you tell her that’s not true?
moish – i don’t listen to Rush Limbaugh that much, but there are other things that say stuff as it is. If someone is a Liberal they’re going to go on Liberal sites. If someone is a Conservative they are going to listen/go on Conservative sites. Nothing is going to change.
Last year we went to Central Park. We met up with friends there. My brothers played ball and the girls talked with friends and ate.
This is a great thread. Does anyone have any ideas?
symcl – totally
sammyjoe – you just want people who are anti Obama to say that he is the best, which they’re probably not. You won’t say that Obama is bad. You probably read very Liberal things. Why don’t you listen to Rush Limbaugh? Where was Obama born? If he hass nothing to hide why doesn’t he show his birth certificate? What’s with his priest? He’s anti-Sematic, whites. How can you say that he’ll be good.
In order to break a bad middah (or habit) go to the opposite extreme. You’ll end up somewhere in the middle.

thanks anonymisss, it’s not really like that. My parents aren’t really sure if we’re moving. We would move to Ramat Beit Shemesh, and be living near family. My sister is the one who’s raising all the issues. We would come back every summer and I don’t have that much school years left.
When I think of moving, I don’t think of it in the permanent sense.

Say you’ll give money to Tzedakah every time you do it. After a while you wont want to give away money, so you’ll hopefully stop. I don’t know if this works for this but if you say you’ll learn two Halachos of Shmiras Haloshon and you can davan for whatever you want. The Chofetz Chaim goes and pleads on your behalf in front of Hashem. I’m not one who’s really into these type of things, they never work, but I did it once and looked for something and I found it. My sister lost something really important, she thought someone stole it, and I told her to do it and she found it. It won’t hurt to try.
