What’s wrong with 69?
It makes a very difference which county your in when describing ‘Oberlander’. If your asking about minhagim like Kittle on R”H, eating in the succah on SH”A, it is the same as Yekes.
The main difference is the hair length they consider chatzitzah. also Oberlander have slightly longer payos (after WWII when all shaved)
The Sfardim lean toward the Ashkenazim in E”Y because they were the ones who saved them from the Zionist’s SHMAD. There were no Sfardi Chadarim. Today they would rather be a Chareidi. This fact seems to be very pain full to the Ro Crawly(probably an anti-religious zionist). As evident the Zionist have a very hard time swallowing these Sfardim they worked so hard to uproot, are not only religious but respect these very Ashkenazim they tried to turn them against.
Whether Ashkenazi or Sfardi is not at all important in Torah True Judaism.
This thread was started probably to prove once again ‘The biggest Anti-Semits call themselves Jews’November 16, 2015 1:14 pm at 1:14 pm in reply to: DO WE REALLY HAVE A GOOD EXCUSE TO LIVE IN CHUTZ LA'ARETZ? #1112960
Health; There is internet in E”Y too. You can be mekayem ‘Ushmartem….’ there as well.November 16, 2015 11:20 am at 11:20 am in reply to: DO WE REALLY HAVE A GOOD EXCUSE TO LIVE IN CHUTZ LA'ARETZ? #1112959
ROL: It says Lavan was worse then Hamman. The zionist were and still are trying to fulfill the pasuk (NOT Mitzva) -???????? ????? ????.
Those Anti-religious of the past have created a generation of anti-religious of the present. In fact most who go OTD are very anti-religious and always try to take others down with them.November 16, 2015 10:18 am at 10:18 am in reply to: Differences between oberlandish and yekkish minhogim #1113131
Joseph : It is NOT a Chassam Sofer ruling for women to shave! Even if his daughters did. A parent giving their child instructions or advice, Even If This Person Is The Rav, does NOT make it a Hallachik ruling.
Why do you throw statement of accusation? Are you an Oberlander? Is your wife an oberlander? How can you say what oberlanders do or don’t do?
Many Americanized – formerly Oberlanders became Modern but continued to call themselves ‘Oberander’ which was another reason for religious oberlander to move toward chassidus.November 16, 2015 9:51 am at 9:51 am in reply to: Differences between oberlandish and yekkish minhogim #1113130
Joseph: What or were is a ‘Oberlander neighborhood’?
How many people do you personally know from either one?
I did not read wikipedia, But the term “oberlander” is not so much before the Chassam sofer. And most minhagim at that time were very similar if not identical. There was little difference before WWII. Like mentioned above there is an extremely common mistake That minhag Chassam Sofer is minhag Pressburg. He was the Rav there and made takanos to keep the kehilla from falling to the Neologgen. The ones who really made the ‘difference’ between them were the Yekkes who started calling them ‘Aust Yude’. So in return they got the name Yekke meaning ‘short jacket’. I guess you can say the difference is the length of the jacket which the ‘yekkes’ have cut.
Why is this important anyway? If you are Jewish as your Rabbi. If you are not Jewish, Why would you want to know? How would it affect you either way?
Sorry didn’t mean to. Will be more careful next time ?”? .
Poetry in Japanese. according to google.
Most people these days who lie in the name of ‘Shalom’ are really lying because they’re embarrassed to admit or just cannot face the truth.
Nobody mentioned Romans. Yevanim are Greek.
How do i change my username? i tried but got a msg something like ‘this e mail address has a name already’
Some have mentioned ‘Tinok Shenishbah’. This terminology ????? ?’ ??? -captive- started being used at the time of the cantonists. When the they literally kidnapped children even as young as 5/6 off the street, fed them treif, and made them serve in the army. They were FORCED away from yiddishkeit.
After WWII there were a lot of Yisomim for whom the terminology was also used. Again in the same context. They were young and FORCEFULLY torn from their yiddishkeit. Even one might use it on the Yaldie Teheran. When they came to E”Y were FORCEFULLY stripped of their Yiddishkeit. But that is totally not applicable to any American Jew.
This Kol Korei is not telling anybody what to do. It is just saying don’t start renaming things (i.e. calling a chimp a human). Don’t steal anybody’s identity.
Orthodox means sticking to the old – NOT starting something new.
Nobody is trying to make BTs with this. It is just a warning:” That way leads to quicksand”.November 8, 2015 5:13 am at 5:13 am in reply to: You’re In Charge of Brooklyn Jewry… What Do You Do? #1111346
2qwerty: Where would you separate bp and flatbush? What’s your boundaries for each?
Neither is eaten by vegetarians
Geordie: That is factually wrong! Many women started smoking during or due to WWII. Even after moving to Bnei Brak. Obviously, they did not do it in public but that does not mean they did not smoke.
ZD: The reason for the marketing was because women complained about discrimination.
Having lung cancer is NOT an indication that person has smoked But, may have merely been in the presents of smokers. It may (or may not) indicate that 2nd hand smoke is worse than 1st hand.October 26, 2015 5:27 pm at 5:27 pm in reply to: Real talk: Present day frumkeit is aimed at 110 IQ tenth graders #1108346

Who hijacked my account and posted this as if it were me? I also do not know what it is talking about.

Writersoul: You find it hard to be like R’ Meir or Acher? What do you find hard to eat the fruit or throw away the peel, or you mean to separate them?

Who tested all these people? Where do these numbers come from?
It actually goes against Chazal who say “Chochmah bagoyim taamin”. There are smart goyim! Just because one has to be smart to understand the torah properly does not mean every jew is smart nor does it mean the average jew is smart. It just means that the gedolim who understand and interpret the torah correctly are smart.
Mammele: Very well written, you sound like a good mammele.
What is the Bitachon question, saying yes or saying no?
Sounds like a single parent issue. And the mother is the one who cannot handle the ‘no’ not the boy.
Why would you be interested in reading ????? ? What’s going on? Try to find a Rabbi/Mentor/Teacher to talk to? Don’t try to be metaken those who wrote them.
Do you read hebrew?
Mod: In the CR! You know abut YWN on-line courses?!?
You can get such high degrees it can really get the coffee to boil.
One Liner: Your 100% correct!
Flatbusher: I actually started looking at new computers, are you trying to say ‘refurbished’ are no good? Do you have any experience?
SDD: Thanx! If it lasts, your advice was helpful and i’d be happy to pay the bill – provided it does not cost more than 1/2 a new computer.
Should i google “bills sent by mail”????
Thanx to all!
LF: You’re right! But only temporarily. I guess i should change that diagnosis to by polar/ moody. If i can read it it’s o.k. but few seconds later it might not be.
It’s possible he was just a spy and really was not jewish.
This whole moshol is so flawed i don’t know where to start.
Almost every teenager doesn’t like to help and gives every excuse possible. What is not written is if the other children are helping or is the work done by the mother or cleaning lady. All it says is “he objects to doing any chores he wont take out the garbage or clear the table or get the clothes from the dryer he pretty much refuses to do anything to help the family.”
In the secular world, if a student is an ‘honor student’ do they get any special privileges? scholarships? and what not?
Most of all, what is the mothers attitude? Is she happy with her choice school? Does she really want him to turn out a Talmid chacham or not? Because that sets the tone in the house for the rest of the children. If she values her choice of school and is happy he is that way, the other children will either emulate him to the best of their ability or at least respect him for what he is. But definitely they wont scream not fair – that is not a torah attitude. This mother is setting the wrong tone.
It’s really hard to imagine a good learning boy will demand a raise in allowance when his siblings (his age or older) are not getting. Why is he asking for later curfew? is he out learning at that time? That is what typical 14 yr olds do

If somebody figures out who somebody else is, then what happens?
I might sound ignorant or maybe just new -not very new- but not long enough to know the answer.
Rebyid23 is there a Roshai Taivos directory?
To clarify/repeat. All what i said was, the Torah writes ??? ????? ????? Three extra words instead of one word ???? on animals that Jews are not allowed to eat. To teach us not to say disgusting on food that a human consumes even if it is a goy. Kal v’chomer a Jew.
ZD: Nobody called the gefilte fish ‘Holy’. Just that people eat it. And why does it have to be an animal to be considered by you food? Chickens are not animals they are birds. Are they food? What about bread? Is milk considered animal or animal by product? B’kitzur how do you define ‘food’?
Syag: That last question was for you too.
LF: That’s a contradiction because the sages said it was for chutz laaretz and now its being kept in E”Y. Back in the day when they were around nobody from chutz kept 2 days if they were Oleh Regel. Besides there is the concept of Minhag Hamokom. Like Tzinding lecht. If your at somebody’s house who makes early shabbos in the summer, you tzind the same time they do even if you usualy are not m’kabel shabbos early.
popa: Your definition of racist is when you call a Japanese made product China, robing it from its proper origin.
Syag: C”V Of course I’m not comparing. I would never touch any dog food / made from dogs/for dogs. Just the name is repulsive. Do you actually know the ingredients of hot dogs or how they make them? At the same token, do you know the ingredients of gefilte fish? Would you also say -GULP- on sushi? What about meatloaf do you eat that?
DY: That thread doesn’t say much. What am I missing?
Syag: Do you call Hot dogs food? Or meat loaf?
Unless it’s some type of computer program or something – I’m not tech savvy.
What is YWN CR manufactured ‘gefilte fish’?
Did anybody dare think that the OP might have an old phone wiht no screen. Or maybe can’t see well. It might just be nice to collect a few cents each and get a speaking phone. (To understand that is an art of its own!)
Seems like that means Chassidim and Misnagdim can’t mix. Just like Bais Hillel and Bais Shamei. But “kol machlokes Shehi L’Shem Shamayim Sofa L’hiskayem”. That means everyone keeps their own. (meaning choosing a mahalach and sticking to it).
There is no safek about that. That depends on if you are European and call it Johrtzeit or American and call it Yartzeit. The safek is, if there will be any difference between Europeans and Americans at that time and how they get to E”Y.
What Yartzeit or Johrtzeit will be held after T’Chiyas Hamaisim? The of their own past death? The day of the Tchiya? Both?
It is halachikly Assur to say disgusting on food another person eats. The torah teaches that to us when it says about the non kosher animals “Asher ainnenu tehorah” and does not use the word “Tameh”.
FrozenThaw: Mentioned somewhat earlier about davening quickly/slowly this might have changed. Because it is well known the Belser rebbe zy”a said to daven quickly so no disturbing thoughts should have time to interrupt your kavana. On the other hand, it is also known that Brisk pronounce words slowly to be mdayek.
mw13: “Hachama niskasa m’eyneinu” must be the zman because Tzais is Tzais and not Shkiya. How long does it take from Shkiya till tzais? for that you have many answers. Also, dividing the world in different places to calcullate. Just like time zones can change. How do you calculate when it is cloudy and you cannot see any stars?
In Yerushalaim Chabad has a minyan maaariv mtzsh”k 25 min after shkiya, also 60, also 72. The debretziner paskened in NY it is 56. But of course you have to know where you live. Go to Gateshead or Alaska and in the summer some hold 72 even there. Is it Ameratsus or Shitah? (no difference, just stating)
DY: If you have such a question you should ask you rabbi. If you are a Rabbi, don’t pasken based on internet info.
Those yeshivish Talmidei Chachamim who don’t eat Chssidish Shchitah choose not to do so but will not take b’chirah away from you since it is not treif just a hiddur. And hiddur you are not allowed to be machbid on the tzibur. If you don’t want to eat Satmar you don’t have to. There are many options. There is no reason to come out against them. Since a learner would know ” Asse L’choh Rav”. everyone asks their rav .
Klal Yisroel started with 12 Shvatim, Each had their own Nasi. and they did pasken differently and none was Neged halacha.
ZD: Just because it is done doesn’t make it Halachikly Oisgehalten. ‘People do it’ doesn’t right away mean they are correct. As you point out, the purpose it to create a ‘Personal relationship’ which is precisely what we are trying to avoid.
Joseph: The op question differs greatly from the one you now asked. Do you really expect an answer from anybody? Who owes you a Din V’Cheshbon?
you’re allowed to lie for Shalom.
That is incorrect. The story with Rav Moshe proves it. “If she doesn’t ask don’t tell”. That does not say “if she asks say I DIDN’T”. It’s more like ?? ????? ????? ???? ???
ZB: What you’re saying is true today. But, some are bringing proof from Rav Pam and then times were different.
CA: If your name is not Donald Trump it will not be called “The Donald Trump Way”. It will be called “Jews expelling innocent arabs from their homes”. Even though the world Knows good and well they are not so innocent at all .
ramat: You’re missing two words “in public”.
I heard they were removing changing tables from airplane bathrooms did anyone travel recently and notice? 10 yrs ago they had them on planes, in airports and big stores like Wallmart, PathMark etc.
To add one one more thing to ‘adocs’ list of reasons not to ask here, because nobody on YWN is a competent Rav. To go with your wife’s opinion is always the safest for Shalom Bayis. (which many people don’t consider important these days because there is always somebody else available).
For one thing “Native Americans” do not want to be called “American Indians”. They rightfully claim, Columbus made a mistake when calling central America “West Indies”. They had nothing to do with India and therefore are not Indian nor “American Indian”.
A poem written in 1785 is after the British came to America. So could be they learned it from them, or he plainly wrote a poem about something in America without writing it explicitly its source.
