While we are on the subject of the Ch’Sofer, can someone please explain to me why many of his generations today, dont follow his derech re-gebrokst on Pesach?

Did it ever occur to anyone that besides the glitch fb had, the asifa was inspired by the two chasidishe women who went astray recently? Feldman and that other woman?May 24, 2012 7:35 am at 7:35 am in reply to: Video of Internet Asifa at CitiField – Full Video Feed for Satellite Locations #876247
‘You are correct, that it’s not inherently assur to access the web for purposes of Torah.’
somehow the feeling I got was that filters were a secondary solution.
The REAL MESSAGE was ‘get rid of the internet period'(maybe not for pple who need it for parnosoh)
Am I the only here who was reading between the lines, or did others get the same feeling?
If thats the case, how do you square that with the above quote made by DASS YOCHID,?April 24, 2012 6:56 am at 6:56 am in reply to: who would you say is the most intelligent CR poster? #870196
I declare the Chassidisher Gatesheader, the most intelligent CR poster.
Koach vs Moach (one of their slogans was ‘Nestles KOCHO’)
Maaseh Berieshis vs Yitzias Mitzraim
chutzah vs Penima
Bein Adam Lamokom vs Bein Odom Lechaveroh
I heard something recently. I am not sure if it is in a ‘joke’ category or can be tied into a Dvar Torah.
They say that making a shidduch is compared to Kriyas Yam Suf.
Not to forget that there were plenty of ‘MACCOS’ Lleading up to it!
Can you please fill me in on the details which I was missing?
Tks;) Just curious….
1.A kallah normally goes to the Koisel several times before she gets married. Why? She has to get used to talking to a wall!! lol
There was a story about an older Bochur who was looking for a shidduch .
Its brought down if you have a bad wife, you go straight to Gan Eden. He asked a shedchan to get him a real witch! He would like to secure his plaCe in GE.
The shadchan called him back a while later and told him that she found the perfect girl. She will make his life miserable guaranteed.
Fine, they married and it turned out that she was soooooo nice.
Always prepared beautiful sumptuos meals. She really tried to please him in every way.
The man approached the shadchan very disappointed. ‘I aksed for a witch, and you gave me an angle!’ he exclaimed.
The shadchan went back to the wife and asked her for an explanation. She had always had a name for being so mean. What happened.
Without hesitation, the wife replied, ‘YOU REALLY THINK I FARGIN HIM GAN EDEDN,,,,??????’
There is the Park Lane Hotel where I think Kosher breakfast is served.

OTB, Rabbaim and DH,
I heard it was Reb Itzikel of Pshevorsk. Could be he quoted R’ Akive Eiger…February 12, 2012 6:41 pm at 6:41 pm in reply to: The Koach of our Gedolim: A Story with Rav Chaim shlit"a #851411
Isnt it Rav Chaim Kanievsky??February 12, 2012 4:34 pm at 4:34 pm in reply to: The Koach of our Gedolim: A Story with Rav Chaim shlit"a #851407
A man was witholding a get from his wife for a long time.
When it came to the attention of the town rav, he was summoned to see him.
The Rav sternly told him that there were two ways for her to be free. Either he gives her the get as soon as apossible, and she will become a Grusha, or she will become an Almonoh.
He gave her the get immediatly!
Shticky guy, I heard that joke a bit differently.
Man 1: My wife is an angel
Man 2: My wife is also not humanFebruary 1, 2012 6:41 pm at 6:41 pm in reply to: Which are your all time favorite catch phrazes or slogans? #847487
There was a certain steak sauce (forgot the name) but the slogan was great!!!!!
It said ‘ A steak without (the particular sauce) is a MISsteak’
The previous Klausenberger Rebbe, Rav Yekusiel Yehuda Halberstam.
Without a doubt, the most inspiring individual who gave such chizuk in the most painful period in our history.
He lost 150 relatives, including 11 children during the Nazi Holocaust and continued being Mekadesh Shem Shomayim till the last day of his life.
His biggest revenge on the Nazis, he said was whenever he married off a child or grandchild ( he remarried after the war).
You made some valid points. However don’t you think the title of this thread is a bit out of wack??
‘LOST ITS WAY’ would indicate that the TOPICS brought on this website are of inappropriate content. Whereas, your point is that there were COMPARISONS made which might not have been ‘yeshiva oriented’.
There is a big difference!
When its time to do a shidduch , make a list of ten things which are important to you.
If your offered something which has 7 out of those 10 requirements, TAKE IT!!!!!!
Why is a chineese phone book so complicated?
There are so many ‘Wing Wongs’, you might WING THE WONG NUMBER!!
The examples you gave would be cut and dry proof that a guy like that
would WANT to give a woman a Get. Why would he withhold it and delay his chances of moving on with someone who is less of a lunatic?!
Cinderella, Sam2 and the others,
No one is trying to demean these akward experiences and I fully understand how uncomfortable these situations can be.
However to label them as your ‘2 worst nightmares’????
Dont you think thats overstating it?
Yes it happened, AND I am making a point.
The smile was not meant to be malicious but rather sarcastic.
‘and I can’t imagine that someone else’s greater tragedy should make her (relatively minor) misfortune seem any better.
Well I diasagree with you on that one. One always must be grateful for not having to endure painful experiences. As I do understand Cinderella’s unpleasant happenings, they might have been uncomfortable, but not tragic.
As you say,may those unpleasant experiences be her worst suffering!
I was at a wedding once where the father of the Kalla collpased at the Mitzvah Tantz and died of a heart attack on the spot!
Felling better Cinderella???;)))
I know a family who makes a pointof ONLy inviting outcasts.
when one of their kids approached the father and asked’ why do you always such pple, why dont you ever invite a balabatish crowd?
The father replied in a heartbeat, ‘those pple have where to go! People like these are not wanted by anyone, so THEY need a place!’
Why is it different then dumping someone after a long courtship?
Just because pple dont know doenst mean the pain less !
This is probably a specail custom made piece with an exclusive foundation.
You can get a top quality sheitel for about 12 or 1500 US dollars.
Yummy Cupcake started this thread! Why dont you make the same of his/her intentions?
I once heard a very significant vort:
‘If a relationship is supposed to be a secret, you shouldnt be in it!’
YES, I obviously use a screen name.However, if anyone should ever figure out my identity, its not as if I stole, murdered, or commiteed any other major offense that would put me to shame.
If posters think that it would be devastating to blow their cover, why actually are they posting?
It certainly cant hurt.
However, with re- to segulas, I am of the opinion that the key to being helped is to be an erhlicher yid. Do wht G-d expects of you.
Try to be your best between friends and G-d.
These segulos dont want wash down any wrong doing and it certainly is not a replacent for teshuva!
Adorable, thats correct. It was the Brisker Rov.
I would like to share an inspirational Moshol I just heard recently:
There was a young girl who was blind. When it came time for her to do a shidduch, she obviously was in a very difficult position, being refused on a constant basis.
Finally she found the most wonderful boy who agreed to marry her. He treated her like a Queen and took the utmost care of her. She was his greatest priority.
A feww weeks after marriage ,he had met with a doctor who would be able to perform a surgery which would restore her sight.
Excitedly, he came home and brought her the news, and as she was delighted to hear, she agreed to start this procedure as soon as possible.
However, in a turn of events, the Doctor decided that the oepration cannot happen for another 20 yrs as he wanted to wait till it was more perfected. Saddned , the huisband relayed her the message.
For another 20 years this man continued , to treat his wife with extreme care , love and respect (yoser megufo).
Finally, after all those years, as she was waiting in the operating room for the surgeons to come in, her husband shocked her with an admission. ‘I too am blind’, he told her.
After her successful surgery waz performed, they took off the patches and DID see that her husband was in fact a blind man. This time, it was her turn to do the deed and she spend years looking after him, the way he did her.
It came to pass after a few years, that she was able to see, there were other men around who had their sight and were capable and independant. she decided that she wanted a normal life and couldnt commit to caring for her husband anymore. She asked him for a divorce, and he lovingly gave it to her but asked her to promise him one thing.
‘You got your sight back BH’, he said.
‘Please take care of
those new eyes you have, because they are MY EYES,’ he continued, ‘I donated them to you before you had the operation years ago, because I wanted you to able to see’.!!
We are all created Betzelem Elokim. Hashem gives each and everyone one of us a neshomo. We should take good care of it, use it the most positive ways.
Gemar Chasima Tovah to all,
Her mother was born a Rothschild????
Do you have a source for this info?
She may have made a mistake , but as Shmoel says she was hardly a role model to bring to the forefront . Especially not as the coming days ahead approach.
If you want to take an example from a Righteous Gentile, I’m sure you can do a lot better.
What are the halochos vice versa? If a frum man takes a Jewish woman.,?
I think he has to be killed as well.But what about divorce?
I know a story where a man divorced his wife because of infidelity, and remarried her a few yrs later….
I know a case where there was talk about a woman being unfaithful.
The husband said he was not mikabel the rumour and they stayed together.
I meant to say if the wife of a Kohen is seen in a suspiocious situation with another man (such as out having drinks), that would consitute a Ch’shash that there MIGHT be infidelity.
Whereeas if the wife of a Yisroel is seen in the scenerio, its not enough grounds for divorce.
Isnt it a fact that a Kohen is not allowed to remarry a woman he divorced whereas its would be a MITZVAH for a Yisroel to do so? (even if she was unfaithful)?
Arent there supposed to be Eidim and Hasruoh?
Tks for elaborating. Now I can sit down:)
Its not so simple to divorce if she was unfaithful unless there are witness and warning. Certain questiions have to be adressed and answered in very specific time scales . Its more complicated.
A kohen THOUGH, has to divorce evn just with rumours.
I stand to be corrected but I think the Gemoroh says that even if a wife mistakenly burns her husbands meal while cooking, he has grounds for divorce….
You gotta strike the iron while its hot!
Yes, I hear what your saying. But as far as this particular minhag,I think thre is a Kabbalsitic reason which pple fear.
I’ve once heard that it can shorten the life of either party.
Is that familiar to anyone?
Its says that a minhag breaks a din!
‘about not having a shver with same name as you – i think it’s from R’ Yehuda Hachassid. I’ve heard it said – halevai he would have written the Aseres Hadibros!
If your point is, that its a small issue, I know there are some Rabonim who are VERY machmir Not to take a SIL with the same name.
As far as gebrokts on the 8th say ONLY, most pple hold that way.
The ones who don’t, are the exceptions.
Not walking side by side with your spouse—-Ger
There are some other exclusive Minhagim with Gerrers. Can anyone name them?
Also, which minhag is it not to take a son in law with the same name as the father of the girl? Or vice versa?
No fish on Pesach stems from Vishnitz…..
There are also some who actually dont even eat Gebrokst on Achron.
I think some Munkatchers if I am not mistaken.
Doing a ‘kneidel’ dance on Achron Shel Pesach, in the evening to give the women time to make the kneidlich-Belz
……….’and no girl is going to say “no” to a tall boy
What if she doesnt like him????
Aries, come on, your supposed to be smart!
You wana mull over that sentiment for a minute??
Read the second post:
‘Its a Machlokes’
There are those Rabonim who takeh dont beleive in taking the Dor Yishorim, claiming that Hashem watches over us all.
However going to the Doctor when your not well is another issue. A Doctor is supposed to be a shliach. How is that comparable to the topic at hand?
