So many people hold of bp eruv but flatbush eruv is the same halachicly.
For an online community try frumsupport website.
Yes but I’m applying his general logic to brooklyn eruv. Also, what about a case where Rav Moshe allowed an old woman to use a walking stick in brooklyn?
So you are saying Rav Moshe was greater than Chazon Ish?
I like when the argument gets to be about who is greater. And since no one can compare to Rav Moshe nobody elses opinion matters. The fact is there are Rabbonim who can argue on Rav Moshe. Also, if I told you that according to Chazon Ish eruv should be fine, does that mean I should tell you not to listen to anyone else?
There are plenty of Rabbonim who allow it so there is no clear answer.March 25, 2011 1:29 pm at 1:29 pm in reply to: Frum Company Owner Ripping Off Employees – What to Do??? #752622
entitled? was it part of their contract? was the amount specified?
casio refers to a keyboard
There is a famous blog that talks about eruv and discusses the whole issue in great detail. I’m sure if you google any eruv related arguments you’ll come across that blog and you can get all the answers there.
I suggest to ask your doc or if you are really curious just google the info about it including the reviews.
Both of them have the same obligation of not accepting tzedokah but the practical difference is that only one of them has another option.
We might have an obligation to help the rich person but the rich person has an obligation (for lack of a better word) not to accept tzedokah. So if he wants to take until he gets back on his feet that’s fine but he can’t expect it to go on forever and he should sell his house eventually.
Ask your doctor about Victoza, its not for everyone, there is a risk, and mostly only for type 2 but you might be surprised how well it works.
People say it works better than insulin and helps with weight loss.
I dont know if they are doing the right thing but as far as you are concerned, think of this…
When Avrohom Aveinu was talking with Hashem he noticed 3 men, he interrupted his conversation and ran to them, and after they left he went back to talking with Hashem.February 21, 2011 2:04 pm at 2:04 pm in reply to: 'Old Fashioned' medical treatment or modern – which are better? #742746
Health, why not give a patient that choice?February 21, 2011 5:07 am at 5:07 am in reply to: 'Old Fashioned' medical treatment or modern – which are better? #742744
The problem with old fashioned medicine is that it might be risky, today doctors will choose a method that is more likely to save a life over a method that might insure better quality of life. It all has to do with being afraid of being sued.
I recently heard a shiur about it. Basically, for mitzvah purposes we wait till the second Adar to be sure but for everything else we can use first one.
So for bar mitzvah we wait extra for the second Adar.
But for yartzeit we can use first Adar.

I think the other problem of taking pills/vitamins on shabbos is that you might grind it.
list of preferences:
1 any pikuach nefesh
2 Torah study
3 med bills of poor
4 building a shul
5 all other needs of poor
read the description carefully. some have confusing titles such as:
ipod 32gig and then you read further and they are just selling a case for it.
or free laptop and they will sell you instructions how to get it but it will probably involve you applying for 5 mortgages and 20 credit cards.
I know the easiest way to solve this argument…
Contact SNAP or read their eligibility requirements and see if this program was meant to be used by kollel or college students or not.
I was quickly scanning through their site and i noticed things like: not owning a car worth over $2k and Able-Bodied Adults should either work 20+ hours per week or join their Employment & Training program.
If someone truly fits their eligibility then kol hakavod (pun intended).
If the person is really poor its tzedokah, and if you look Jewish its Kidush Hashem. You never know who else is watching you.
I agree that its not fair to involve you and if the store owner knows their address why doesnt he visit them and ask for his money in person?
However, I keep thinking of the mitzvah, dont turn away from the lost object of your friend.
So my suggestion is ask your LOR.
My favorite places for skiing here shawneemt.com or here belleayre.com
It’s here, just saw it instead of mendys.
So Joseph, did you ask your Rov if you are allowed to create many screen names and deceive us into thinking that its different people?
Am I the only one who thinks it may be a halachic problem?
Is there a halachic problem with having multiple screen names?
mdvar sheker tirchak?
Maybe he took the bottle just to show that he isnt baal tashchis.
I think the problem with any older single person is that they dont have a good mentor/Rabbi. It has to be the type of person who wouldnt mind telling him/her how to improve and whats unreasonable to look for in a mate. But also the single person should be open to change based on the advice of the mentor.
Is everyone in agreement that cheap, angry, ungreatful and impolite people shouldnt be married?
I think those are just personal preferences and doesnt mean everyone should look for it.
One thing that does apply to everyone is abusiveness but how can you spot it?
The Gemara in Bava Metzia (42a) states “Rav Yitzchok says, a person should divide his money into thirds, and invest 1/3 in real estate (which is the most secure investment), 1/3 in inventory (to turn a business profit), and 1/3 should remain liquid so that it will be available in case merchandise is suddenly available to him at a bargain price”.
No mention of tzedakah.
Famous pita used to be open till 3-4 but I dont know the current schedule.
If a poor person is in front of you asking for help you are allowed to give more than 20%.
So go visit a shelter or kosel or other similar places.
Maybe you have the wrong kind of mirrors. Try looking at the inside of a reflective spoon, you should see yourself upside down but right/left will remain as is.December 29, 2010 2:22 am at 2:22 am in reply to: Is it permissible for a frum man to wax facial hair? #722390
My original post didnt go through for some reason, mods?
You are not allowed to destroy hair of the beard. However, mustache and eyebrows dont have that problem but waxing those areas might be a problem of acting like a woman.
If you mention more about your skills maybe someone here will think of an opportunity for you.
Whats your profession?
Bereishis 6:3, also see Ibn Ezra there.
I was also present by a birthday party of someone just over 100 and I also thought how it may sound strange to wish him until 120.
Would you rather be disgusted by your patients physical problems or mental?
For some reason people dont consider the actual job only how it sounds.
In such cases the easiest way for you to get to the truth is to discuss it with the owner.
Email and battery are about the same the only big difference is typing.
Some may think that bb physical buttons are easier but once you get used to typing on the screen it will even out.
Well there is no single cure because every Crohns person has different symptoms. I think its important to treat each problem separately and not get stuck on typical cures.
Instead of flagyl you can try xyfaxan.
Instead of remicade you can try humira.
Instead of scd you can try to figure out which specific foods give you the most problems.
Also, with Crohns its very important to drink lots of liquids but try different ones because some drinks may do more harm than good.December 9, 2010 3:46 am at 3:46 am in reply to: Charity — What's More Important? The Act or the Amount? #715799
Dont you get mail requests from different organizations? I think you should keep automatic payment for a certain amount but leave some money for other (not your typical) charities which you would pay manually.
You can google baking soda to see many uses for it. I personally use it mostly for polishing silver.
Ive been told not to work with friends/family well I did both at different times and had only good experiences with it. It depends on personalities and ability to take things lightly not to stress over every problem. Based on what you’ve mentioned I would say definitely go for it.
In Brooklyn you should try Natural Village Cafe
I completely agree with you. And it reminds me of the following story…
A student of Rabbi Yisroel Salanter once approached him with the following dilemma. “I’ve been a shochet (ritual slaughterer) for many years. As I grow older, I become more concerned about my responsibilities. The fear of causing others to eat non-kosher meat is overwhelming. I would like to stop slaughtering and go into business instead!” Rabbi Yisroel Salanter asked him, “Are you an expert in the laws of slaughtering?” “Of course, Rebbe, I have studied the laws of shechita for many years!” Rabbi Yisroel Salanter then asked, “Are you expert in the laws of business?” The student laughed, “Of course not, very few people learn Choshen Mishpat (the section in the Shulchan Oruch [The Code of Jewish Law] that discusses business law)!” Said Rabbi Yisroel Salanter, “You are not making any sense – If you are prepared to stop slaughtering because of your fear of sinning, even though you are an expert in the laws, how much more so should you fear sinning in business, in which you have no expertise in its halachos!”
Bukharians are mostly Jewish.
