interjection: An engagement diamond indeed is a modern day meshugas instituted by the De Beers diamond giant as a way to trump up business. There is no historical basis to giving a Jewish bride a diamond.
Um, Cardozo honors gays with their own YU funded and officially university recognized Toeiva Club. So why all the outrage here? Show the outrage for the true abomination.
So, tell me ,dear posters, do you say the “kinos’ that were made specially for the Holocaust? I suspect that most of you do not say it- thereby proving that you really do not want ANY commemoration. And that, I think, is truly sad.
Of course I say the special holocaust kinoses every Tisha B’Av. And every shul I’ve ever davened in on Tisha B’Av, both in the city and upstate, has said it. I’ve never been to a shul that skipped it.
You can take a NYC taxi ride and also notice how many times the driver mentions his god everytime someone cuts him off.
ubiquitin: What I mean is that just as the city is today opposed to MBP tommorow they may be opposed to Bris Milah in general. Or at least aim to regulate. And mandate signed forms to be signed before Bris can be performed. At least as a first step. You of course should support that for the same reasons you support the constitutionality of mandating signed consent for MBP.
Just ask Rav Reisman if Rav Yaakov brought a TV into the Yeshiva and made a shehechiyanu.
ubiquitin: You would support the city’s approach, too, if the city distributed literature in hospitals warning parents against having a Bris Milah due to the health risk or death a Bris can in a small number of cases cause. And you would, of course, support the city’s mandate requiring all Mohelim to give parents a form to sign before they are permitted to perform a Bris, that advises the parents that the city recommends against having a Bris due to the health hazards.
