    To clarify what resident of ds9 wrote, the only soap that can be used on Shabbos is liquid soap. (Not bar soap.)

    COMFORTABLE SHOES!! You’ll start out wearing your cute shoes but then quickly realize that you’re not on 13th Ave. anymore….You’ll walk your feet off over there, and wear out shoes faster than you’d think possible.

    Yekke2: I’m not sure who’s being ignorant.The mekor for this is in Gemora Sotah,Daf 11a.”Why was it called Ramses? Because it would crumble(misroses)…And why was it called Pisom? Because “pi t’hom bol’o”,the mouth of the depths would swallow it.” Rashi says that whatever they built would sink into the ground. Now whether that means quicksand, small earthquakes,unstable ground, I don’t know. But just because you didn’t know, please don’t assume ignorace on the part of teachers.

    If this will be of any chizuk- I know of a young couple that got married and had two sons in fairly quick succesion. Then nothing…and nothing …for a long time. Of course they ran to specialists,etc. When their younger son was over seven,they had healthy twin girls!!

    Attention,Zeena.Kasta- I am very close to a young woman who recently attended Darchei Binah. For answers to your questions,spend time on their website darcheibinah.org. There’s loads of info on it. Next,call Mrs. Kermaier at the sem at 011-972-2-6410266 with any questions. She’s a sweetheart who’ll be honest with you and be very helpful to you. And by the way,the young woman who was there had an outstanding year.

    I just noticed this thread,and I’m surprised that no one mentioned this helpful hint. If you mix the medicine into cold Kedem concord grape juice,the bad taste is masked.It works beautifully.

    To Shprintze- I find it so very sad that you don’t know all that you were asking about.Covering knees and elbows is basic halacha.Covering toes is a machlokes that most communities are makpid on. PLEASE get yourself to a seforim store and buy a copy of “Halichas Bas Yisroel- A Woman’s Guide to Jewish Observance”,by Rav Yitzchok Yaacov Fuchs. In Volume One there is in-depth coverage with detailed footnotes of halachos of tznius. I think you (and many others!) would find this very enlightening.

    There’s also the idea of Olam Haboh in the frum world,that the others participating in the sport don’t have.Do you have any idea how beloved in the eyes of H-shem you are by following your Rav’s psak? You should express your frustration and get it out of your system,then try to think outside the box to see what you possibly ~could~ do.

    Interesting that so far no one has pointed out that the question,”What do you want to be?” is not the same question as ,”What do you want to do?”. Being a doctor or a plumber is a way to make a parnassah,but does not define who you are. In the secular world they don’t usually differentiate between the two…

    in reply to: Tisha B'av, kids and parenting #795679

    Quoted from Rav Simcha Bunim Cohen’s sefer “The Three Weeks,Tisha B’av and Other Fasts”,-“Children who have reached the age of understanding the concept of mourning(i.e.,7 or 8)should be trained to wear non-leather shoes on Tisha B’av.However, nowadays the custom is that even children below that age do not wear leather shoes.” The footnote to this states (in translation)”this is the custom everywhere.” AS for hearing Eicha, after you get your kids to sleep and won’t be disturbed,sit on the floor and read it yourself.

    There is an excellent Artscroll English sefer “Mourning in Halachah” that contains a tremendous amount of halachos and minhagim.For anyone in that situation it’s a must-have. That being said,you must have a Rov to ask shailos to,as there are many situations that can’t be covered in a book,and there are many situations that can and do arise that need hadracha from a Rov.

    If I was brought up in a non-religious home (I was), and later in life (as a teenager)became acquainted with frum Jews (I did),would I care to find out what it’s all about? YES.And would I make the drastic,life changing decision to become frum? YES! Boruch Hashem! And it’s obvious that a number of other posters here (and at least one mod)also said Na’aseh V’nishmah at one point in their lives.

    I am quoting from the sefer “Halichas Bas Yisroel”- “In some communities,it is customary for brides to cover their hair before the wedding ceremony to ensure that it will be covered at the moment of marriage.Elsewhere,brides cover their hair after yichud.Still others wait until the following day to cover their hair.”There are 3 footnotes in the sefer that bring down exactly where each shitta comes from,and they are all valid,major poskim.Feel free to look it up.

    Pac-Man-You should know that there are different “shitos” regarding covering the hair. Some davka hold that the kalla should have uncovered hair by her chasana (to show that she is a besulah),and that she is not mechuyav to cover her hair until the following morning.

    READ TO YOUR KIDS!!! This is one of the best ways to develop closeness with your kids. Read to them something that’s of interest to them.The book could be a story,factual information that’s interesting,whatever they like.Then talk with them about it-“How would you feel if that was you-would you act like so-and-so in the book did? “. Reading to your kids(whether age 2 or 10) is a springboard for talking with them about just about anything.
