@Haimy a word of caution:
There are some unqualified people giving shiurim on that site as well. They’re not all rabbis.
…I really gotta pay more attention when typing
Whoops. I should have added another ” after the last “and mpre”
I personally don’t have such an extreme case, but for about a year after I graduated, I did not want to learn anything (aside from a few halachos) at all. I avoided learning because I felt guilty, like I had voices in my head asking “that’s it? Why not learn more? And more? And more? I avoided it entirely because I wanted to get away from all that. My Yeshiva didn’t approve of “wasting time”. (Well, not in their rules, but in the culture, if you know what I mean)

Ya know, it might not be necessary to have these if TUITION WASN’T SUCKING PEOPLE’S MONEY UP
So how would be the appropriate way to say that holiday?
So how WOULD be the appropriate way to say his name?December 6, 2017 10:31 pm at 10:31 pm in reply to: [Fiction] A Nazi attempting to unleash a biological weapon in Israel #1421624
A lot of people got happily married through meeting their spouse by themselves. Just because that’s currently a cultural taboo, doesn’t mean it’s “unacceptable in a frum home”.December 6, 2017 9:53 pm at 9:53 pm in reply to: [Fiction] A Nazi attempting to unleash a biological weapon in Israel #1421619
Oh yes of course.
We all know that Avrohom, Moshe, Yaakov, and David Hamelech all consulted their Shadchan…December 5, 2017 3:32 pm at 3:32 pm in reply to: [Fiction] A Nazi attempting to unleash a biological weapon in Israel #1419279
“The Shadows”, which is currently being serialized in the FJJ, has a “guy meets girl and they get married in the end” part to the story…December 5, 2017 2:26 pm at 2:26 pm in reply to: [Fiction] A Nazi attempting to unleash a biological weapon in Israel #1419172
The sad thing is that this all exists… there is no innovation at all. It’s all just retelling the same plot with different characters and placesDecember 5, 2017 9:09 am at 9:09 am in reply to: [Fiction] A Nazi attempting to unleash a biological weapon in Israel #1418659
It exists… There was one that got around that problem by having it affect only those that drunk alcohol, which excluded “good muslims” who didn’t drinkDecember 5, 2017 8:41 am at 8:41 am in reply to: [Fiction] A Nazi attempting to unleash a biological weapon in Israel #1418626
I Agree… innovation seems to be lacking in that form of entertainment
I think it may be because when people see such an insular people, they want to know more about them. When they do something wrong, they have a brief glimpse into their lives and are interested. Which makes it more newsworthy
I’m not sure about the statistics, but a lot is still a lot despite percentage
Sorry if this sounds like defending anti-semitism, but the welfare scams kinda make sense
All over the internet, PEOPLE KNOW that a lot of orthodox Jews cheat and it makes sense to me that they are finally sick of it (please correct me if I’m wrong, since I did not hear of this “anti-semitic practices” till now)
As well as some interesting articles on Chabad.org
Well, I’m not entirely sure… I guess it’s that I was never actually taught the language, and everyone around me just picked it up somehow…
Well, I find it harder to sit with a gemara since I have to decipher “Artscrollese” as well as aramaic…
Mostly Halacha seforim, I guess
Me in a nutshell… I do understand a little… But it’s not worth the trouble
English seforim are everywhere nowadays, so I do not believe it is entirely necessary
Are you just reading snapple facts?
So Mobile games aren’t even considered video games by actual gamers. It isn’t even called casual
To say “I am a Gamer” implies that I play games as my main hobby and it is my main source of fun.
Mobile games are filled with ads, microtransactions, and are (mostly) not professionally made.
If someone were to say “I play candy crush so I’m a gamer” he is insulting all gamers by associating himself (who plays the lowest form of what can be considered video game) with people that actually appreciate the value of a $60 game and are willing to pay it for actual fun. Not ads, microtransactions, made to addict, and all around unprofessional games
Not at all
People who play candy crush and call themselves gamers are an insult to actual gamers
True…although the ESRB does exist…most parents don’t seem to care
That comparison makes no sense
I don’t know… But this sounds interesting
@Lilmod Ulelamaid that wasn’t the point
(That was sarcasm, by the way)
Yes, video games were created by the yetzer hara… just like computers, cell phones, newspapers, board games, and the internet (which, in case you don’t know, you are currently on)
I’m pretty sure he wasn’t dead serious when saying these things
Why do anything for fun? Just walk back and forth! You can’t possibly go insane from doing the same repetitive over and over again without purpose!
Not always applicable. I was in a school comprised of 2 extremes. There was no “middle class” (at least, not that I know of)October 18, 2017 10:43 pm at 10:43 pm in reply to: Are all these protests in Jerusalem really a kiddush hashem? #1386642
I doubt there is ANY chance at all for the government to be run 100% according to Jewish law
So what’s the point? It’s a chillul hashem for nothing?October 18, 2017 6:53 am at 6:53 am in reply to: Are all these protests in Jerusalem really a kiddush hashem? #1384919
If they live in A country that defends them against next-door terrorists then why aren’t they contributing too? That just sounds so ungrateful. IT’S WAR! NORMAL RULES DON’T APPLY so what possible argument can they possibly have??? They should defend their country along with everyone else
Please correct me if I’m getting things wrong, but this is how I, and 99% of the world thinkOctober 17, 2017 9:29 pm at 9:29 pm in reply to: Are all these protests in Jerusalem really a kiddush hashem? #1384811
Yeah, but doing what they think is right, is causing massive anti-Semitism so I think being concerned is appropriate
