Trust- that is so true. “Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.”
That’s the halacha. As far as being disgusted, didn’t Rivka Imeinu wear a nose band? That would be cartilage piercing.
oomis- an eved’s ear is pierced in the cartilage part, not the lobe, which is just skin.
I heard an explanation on that chazal- although tzadikim want to do a lot, they can’t be sure that they will physically be able to accomplish as much as they’d like. They say the minimum because their words are precious to them and they don’t want to go back on what they said. So they start with the min and end up doing the max.
Talking about ahavas yisroel and things like that is different, because it’s not a specific action. When we discuss it, it stays at the forefront of our mind and then we end up bit by bit accomplishing a lot until it becomes second nature.February 3, 2014 5:16 pm at 5:16 pm in reply to: Do people who are uglier have more yiras shomayim? #1002063
All of the prophetesses were known to be beautiful… Some were wealthy too.
…like a tricycle without handles zooming downhill and a rainbow ice pop and then it hits a big rock and goes flying and land somewhere a few miles away and keeps going…
Reborn so many times…
LF- assuming that ry23 meant what he said, and that my theory is correct, then yes. But then again, if he didn’t mean it and it’s not correct, then you probably meant it anyway.
Not that I don’t appreciate tremendously what he did for me. I mean, I would NEVER lend ME my car even for a day. I’m fixing it anyway. But I’m still curious what the halacha would be.
I think when people say what they really mean, other people respond the same way. I mean, there are exceptions- LF, did you mean that?
WOW. BUSY GUY. How does he find the time?
Peek at birkat cohanim. I’m soooo curious…
What if you have more than two voices? Like three or four…
“save water, drink wine”.
Having two screen names is not in itself schizophrenic, but is probably a cause for it. There are constant voices going- “Now I’m me. Now I’m the other me that is completely different from the first me”. Its also confusing probably.
im not here. anyone else not here?
How do you know? And besides, if i was quoting someone, then it probobly was not you, which would make it completely irrelevant if we are related or not.
To quote someone famous,”Normal is relative; we’re not related.”
Is there anything wrong with admitting that Hashem guided the christians to separate perakim in a way that brings out a point to anyone who wants to find a cute remez? KZ was just reminding us of Hashgocha Pratis in every area
Can someone explain with clarity and brevity exactly what the problem is with zionism?
