you didn’t answer my first post about stealing.June 23, 2011 5:50 am at 5:50 am in reply to: Kula Creep – The Creation and Use of Non-Existent "Kula's" #779733
What about the prohibition of Geneivas Daas? Is that also allowed in certain cases?June 23, 2011 5:06 am at 5:06 am in reply to: Kula Creep – The Creation and Use of Non-Existent "Kula's" #779732
“It’s not stealing because they give out the money anyway”
“The only problem would be stealing, but it’s not [stealing] because they are giving it away to those who meet their guidelines”
Do you give out/pay money to those who meet your guidelines? And if i dont agree with your choices am i allowed to steal it from you?
Why do people think maaser = 10% ? That’s a minimum you have to give and many poskim will agree that once you are this rich you have to give 20%. And they will probably allow you to give beyond that also.June 19, 2011 10:40 pm at 10:40 pm in reply to: Are you allowed to buy cut up fruits in a non jewish store? #778571
By the way, the other possible problem with fruits/berries is bugs! And also bugs/copepods in the water that is used to wash them.
I’m just providing problems to think about im not paskening either way.June 19, 2011 10:21 pm at 10:21 pm in reply to: Are you allowed to buy cut up fruits in a non jewish store? #778569
hello99, thank you for explain the side for permitting it. I wasnt paskening against i was just mentioning 1 possible problem that might come up. It’s possible there are more problems that we didnt think of and like any question everyone should trust their own Rav and not the internet.June 19, 2011 4:03 am at 4:03 am in reply to: Are you allowed to buy cut up fruits in a non jewish store? #778558
1st timer, and how should the goishe owner or worker realize that just by cutting his sandwich he might be violating kashrus rules?June 19, 2011 2:46 am at 2:46 am in reply to: Are you allowed to buy cut up fruits in a non jewish store? #778555
if you order take out from a fleishig place and goish delivery guy brings it without any seal, will you eat it? just because there is only a slight chance doesn’t mean we should start trusting non jews with our kashrus
1st timer, I was taking about personal lunch so doesn’t matter that meat is not sold there.June 17, 2011 10:44 pm at 10:44 pm in reply to: Are you allowed to buy cut up fruits in a non jewish store? #778546
Blueberries might need to be checked for bugs they are not the same as grapes.June 17, 2011 9:23 pm at 9:23 pm in reply to: Are you allowed to buy cut up fruits in a non jewish store? #778544
Yes they have a special knife but if the guy needs to cut his bacon sandwich that he has for lunch do you think he would hesitate using this special knife?
I think the more they know us or about us the less hatred there will be towards us. Think of some other nations or types of people who are different from us and we might think they are strange. But once we get to know some of them we start realizing that they aren’t so different and they can also be nice people.
That’s why i think its best for us not to get to know them so well so it shouldn’t lead to mingling.
(btw, I’m a guy and even i know about Ali)
There is a Rashi that basically says tamid doesn’t mean constantly but on constant basis.
When you get to schacharis on time and you get a good feeling that Hashem is helping you do the right thing. When you see a nice view and you are thinking this world is so beautiful wow what a miracle it is. Or in the middle of the day you just start asking Hashem for help, in your own words just talking to Hashem.
I think all 3 examples would qualify because even when you are not thinking of Hashem but of His actions or His creations, I think that is the main point.
If the girl is too young to read this type of books maybe you should read through the book and once in a while mention to her the lessons from it.
did she already ask you for a ride? what did you do/answer?
Bais Din of Rabbi Gestetner is free and you can google it for more info.
why do you keep taking them?June 3, 2011 1:58 am at 1:58 am in reply to: Need help ASAP with windoows movie maker(please dont ignore this call for help) #775315
try saving it to a usb memory card. you can even borrow one from your digital camera if you don’t have a spare one.
Englishman, no one says he should look. Just open it and leave.
Notice that only holding the door into a room may cause this problem. However, as the previous date mentioned opening car door should still be done since then there is no excuse of guy walking behind.
When I receive something for my donation, auction prize or even aliya, I try to not count that value as my maaser. So I only bid on things that I’m willing to pay for from my non maaser fund (aka my credit card).
A shadchin once told me there are no girls who want to stay at home with kids so I shouldn’t even hope of finding it.May 20, 2011 5:14 am at 5:14 am in reply to: Jewish Crohn's & Colitis Support Group 'Education Event' #1137354
If you feel burning in the stomach its most probably not Crohn’s but you should still see a gastroenterologist to figure out what it is.
From what i know there is no 1 definite test to figure out if someone has crohns or not.
Many happily married couples will tell you that they never thought they would marry someone like that.
People have too many ideas who they should marry instead of allowing Hashem to make a suggestion to them.
Cooking with any plastic and/or foil is dangerous.
I just heard a shiur that thur night is also fine for ashkenazim. But sefardim have to wait till monday morning.
When you feel the person is not giving you too much choice that’s called taking advantage.
But when you chose to help them by yourself you are a tzadeikas.
I agree with you but for this idea to work the teachers have to be very good and the students have to be mature and focused. So its not very practical for the masses.
its difficult to argue with “facts” but I wonder how they missed east side of brooklyn. anyone who drives on belt exits 8-19 can clearly see water.
I think brooklyn is surrounded by 3 sides which gives it enough of a heter d’oraisa. And both Coney and Brighton have man made board walk which serves as a mechitza.
Add some juice to it because sometimes a little flavor is all you need.
How about a magazine about health?
I think anyone can overcome this disease just by watching what they eat. And I don’t recommend eliminating any food group just have to figure out what can be eaten with what.
I know someone who overcame it and stopped taking all the meds.
how many hours do you need? and how much are you willing to spend?
If you can’t handle criticism then you are right you won’t be successful in business.
Anyone working with people has tons of stories about crazy requests, demands, random stupid suggestions and so on. You just have to find humor in everything and keep doing what you are good at because even though they complain they are still coming back to your schwarma and not to the one in Israel.
Yes I certainly meant that there are complications which are more embarrassing and more of a problem long term. But you are right Im sure obstructions are much more painful.
I may have an idea for you and I tried to contact the mods but no one responded.April 1, 2011 6:25 pm at 6:25 pm in reply to: Live out of town and I need (fresh affordable) food for Pesach #755126
there is a website called kosher, check it out.
Yes I can. Ask you own Rav, if you can rely on a psuk from R Roth and let us know his answer.
Many litvishe Rabbonim including those that follow R Belsky wouldn’t hesitate to send their followers to R Roth for certain type of shailas. Also, according to R Roth b”d brooklyn has enough mechitzas to be considered karmelis. I want to see how many others went all over brooklyn and said otherwise.
lets say I’m not.
you know I meant orthodox so why are you changing the subject?April 1, 2011 12:58 am at 12:58 am in reply to: Chasunah Policies – What are the details? Do they make sense? #754610
koch, invest the money youself, I suggest either bonds or etf stocks.
ozm, I heard of worse things in crohns patients. But you are right everyone is different and have different side effects.
feif un, ask any rabbi in bp, and flatbush rabbis admit that they don’t know enough about it and don’t want to make a decision.
The gemorah that I learn goes by majority not by who is greater as you suggested before.
popa what’s your problem with eruv? majority of the rabbonim in brooklyn allow it. (I’m only counting those who made a firm decision about it)
Its fine if it touches gluten but sometimes even small amount to eat may cause some problems. Its not as crazy as nuts but try to avoid it as much as possible and don’t cook gluten with non gluten in 1 pot.
Some people with crohns have embarrassing symptoms so you can’t compare it to diabetes.
