You may have listeners but honestly I don’t think anyone really cares about your posts (no offense)
VS. Hashem who waits for every tefillah and truly cares!!!!!!
Maybe before each post say a kapital tehillim I think that would be a perfect balance 🙂
How about a moderator?
Maybe become that?
Why would anyone want to go to Montreal now- they have strict covid rules. Additionally, it’s freezing cold- not my idea of vacation
I like North Miami. There are some nice villas with a pool. Kosher food and everything. It’s warm and super relaxing.
Arizona is also really nice
How to save the world:

Before you marry a person you should make them use a computer with slow internet to see who they really are
Do you think clouds look down at people and think “that one is shaped like an idiot”?
I think everyone believes what they want to believe. It is then always easy to find sources that are reputable to back one’s belief. Nobody can know all the biases behind a seemingly reputable source.
When one believes vaccines and masks work- they can find plenty of reputable sources backing their belief.
But if one believes vaccines and masks don’t work- they can also find reputable sources backing their belief.
So everyone sticks to their beliefs.
AAQ- you seem to have the mistaken assumption that my mil supports us. What I meant by her giving more $ to my husbands siblings is like by chanukah gifts (which we appreciate and she can chose to give whoever however much she wants) because they work.
I am so leaving this conversation. I came in to discuss teachers salaries and why I left teaching.
From states like NY (and other democratic states) who believe very strongly in their no bail law. Like when you have repeat offenders they keep letting them back on the street with no bail. Common knowledge
Thanks Avira- But, it makes it more real. Kollel is not something my husband was encouraged into- its a path we chose despite the difficulties- which makes us stronger. But, I was surprised to see so many ppl against kollel. Like it’s not your child, so who cares?
As for programs- When a kollel family really needs the funds and they are eligible they should completely take it. AAQ has equal preference for his taxes helping a T”Ch or a homeless beggar. His whole reply has so many wrong points I wouldn’t even know where to begin to respond.
And UJM is correct. If someone is eligible for govt programs that means they are making very little money for a non frum lifestyle and a frum lifestyle is way more expensive. And if they take the higher goal of teaching (which is what this post started with) at least they should be taking govt programs to help them with basics like foodstamps for food.
Just my (and my ravs) opinion.
Reb E- so nice.
I’m super close to my sisters (I speak to them a few times a day). I’m really good with my brothers wives (speak to them once in a while). I’ll have a geshmake conversations with my brothers (when I see them which isn’t too often). I have a polite formal relationship with my sisters husbands.
My husbands family is not so close-knit. We have a nice time when we see each other and we share in each others simchos but otherwise……
Hey, I chose this life and am very happy BH. Yet, I don’t know why, but the other people I know whose (thanks takamamash) husbands are learning have monetary support from their parents, so I feel like our lives are not really relatable. Years ago I think it was more common, but today…..
Do you realize that I didn’t get a single response from someone in my shoes- just shows……
Hashem tilted the axis after the mabul.
Reb E- When democrats believe in putting criminals right back on the streets instead of locking them up then the only possible conclusion is that democrats love criminals.
Would you rather your taxes go to the homeless than to a talmud chacham?
My husband is a MASSIVE taldmud chochom. It would be a waste to the world if he would go work. So which is better? We tried without programs and didn’t have money for food. Literally. We then spoke to our rav and said we are allowed to be on programs IF we can’t live without it.
BH now that I’m not teaching and working in an office (I am going for my degree) I am not eligible for programs BH!!!
And for my mil- she’s coming around. She just will never respect my husband as much as his brothers with jobs. She ironically gives them more money than she gives us. Buts thats ok she doesn’t owe us anything. We chose this life and we live with it.
I didn’t realize you were talking about public schools.
Oh and I taught for 10 years. Get your facts straight
I don’t know a single school that pays $4,000/month. I was getting waaaaaaaaaaaaaayy less ($25,000/year) range. And I taught for ten years up until this year. Get your facts straight.
I don’t know which schools in america you’re talking about in brooklyn I was making $28,000/year teaching. It’s not possible to live off that. When I moved to Lakewood my salary went down to less than $25,000 a year. This year I left teaching and starting working in an office. I don’t know anyone that makes $4,000/month teaching
Also gadolhadorah and thelittle- you sound like my mother in law. She also thinks my husband should go find a job (he actually learns at least 12 hours a day). If this is the life we chose why do you care? Why would it bother you if a couple decides that the husband should stay in kollel? No-one is forcing the kind of life they think is right on you so don’t chose for others.
I was a teacher for 10 years. I loved it! I put my heart and soul into teaching. Until it wasn’t working. I was making less than $25,000 a year, working hours at home (because if I do something I do it all the way) and was coming home daily wiped out.
This year I started working in an office. I make double, work less total hours (no home work), and come home with energy to be a wife and mother.
Oh, and now I can afford to treat myself once in a while without thinking how in the world will I pay the credit card bill vs. teaching that didn’t even cover my basic living expenses
I’m happy that teachers are waking up. Supply and demand works- the less teachers available the more schools will have to pay to attract teachers.
