Thus, cravings can be satisfied by visiting the coffee room:)
or by offering them as a korban to Hashem to achieve closeness.
My personal experience is that the more I attempt to satisfy my cravings, the more I crave.
I just keep away from sugar and white flour so no more cravings, just minor temptations.
Make that Greenville, and I guess that’s the Jersey City kehilla already mentioned.
A heimish/chassidish community was founded a few years ago in Greenfield, NJ.
Just go to law school, Joe. Actually, I always wondered why you didn’t.July 18, 2017 10:46 am at 10:46 am in reply to: SHOCKING Letter Published In Lakewood Newspaper ⚡📰 #1319720
The little I know and golfer:
You are probably far more knowledgeable in this area than any other posters here, and your age, experience, and wisdom render your comments noteworthy.
However, In my limited experience with my own family and assisting friends with placing their children in appropriate schools (in Brooklyn), I have not encountered this bigotry that you mention, even in the most yeshivish yeshivos.
Most people want to fit in with the crowd at their children’s schools, so a man who wears a blue shirt would usually not apply to a school where everyone wears white ones.
If he does apply and is rejected, it is most likely not because of an elitist attitude; rather, his wife may not have the requisite level of tznius for that school, or they may have unfiltered internet, and that is against school policy.
I have seen people who are not of the “nouveau yeshivish” class (working or from different backgrounds) be accepted into those schools because they conform to the standards of the yeshivish decision-makers in matters of kedusha, not the color of their shirts.
Let’s go fly a kite…
Take note of previous post. Chuckled? Good. Now, here are mine:
Yanky and Shabbos
Boruch learns about Shabbos
Those two have made a big comeback in my life in recent years, and lots of people here think they’re underrated.
Joseph, even if slacking employees don’t get fired, their supervisor can make them want to quit.
If they have such thick skin that the sup’s not succeeding in making their lives miserable, chances are they are already supervisors themselves, and at that level, yeah, they’ll fire you for slacking off.
Joseph- whites are not fired more frequently if they do their job properly. That is the extent of my experience…
I think marriage at this point is a great idea if you can subscribe to these two conditions- with no unsubscribe option ever:
1- I will devote myself entirely to this person and will fulfill my obligations to him always.
2- I understand that this marriage is for the duration of our lives; therefore, any difficulties that may arise are to be fixed and not used as an excuse to absolve myself of my obligations.
Firstly, try to figure out why the yetzer hara tripped you up before and what changed when you were in sem.
Are you back in the same situation/conditions/relationship dynamic that tripped you up in the first place?
Secondly, utilizing our strengths productively (think job or chesed), maintaining an attitude of gratitude (think gratitude journal), and strengthening our relationships can help us maintain a growth mindset.
This is why I’m working on my communication skills…
Regarding health insurance, NYC employees can have great medical, dental, hospital, and vision coverage without premiums and only minimal deductibles and copays while NYS employees have to pay premiums and higher deductibles and copays for slightly less extensive coverage.
Job security depends a lot on your color.
Zahavasdad: did you answer your own serious question? Hmm…
Melamed Academy is a great option for those wishing to homeschool. They have a kodesh and chol curriculum and are registered as a New Jersey school.
They service grades k-12.
