    Hakatan et al,
    Zionism didn’t need a state in order to shmad. Betwern socialism, communism, and a whole slew if isms ( of which zionism was probably the smallest ) Eastern European Jewry was well on it’s way in the late 19th century to abandoning Yiddishkeit.

    Do we have to go through this again? There is no such thing as a Jewish tune! Throughout our history we adapted local tunes for our purposes. That’s why, for example, the music of Iraqi and Syrian Jews sounds Arabic, Bucharian Jewish Music sounds like all Bucharian music . The major difference between current Jewish music and older music is that we don’t remember the goyish song it was adopted from.

    What ive found most distasteful are the post election commentaries on MSNBC, CNN and the networks , particularly Joy Reid. From the extended clips that I’ve seen, ths loss by the Democrats was due to racist voters. Education was a dig whistle for white supremacy. What none of them mentioned was that the “racist” dog whistling voters also elected the first black woman to state wide office ( L t Governor ) in Virginia history.

    BTW, Reb Eliezer before you call someone a liar re Critical Race Theory, make sure you’re not getting all your facts from CNN.

    Yes, the 2020 stolen election claims should be forgotten. But why has Stacy Abrams been able to build a career on claims of a stolen election and Hillary has kept calling her 2016 loss fraudulent?

    It’s not necessary to search for mystical reasons for multiple, sometimes contradictory , opinions in the Oral Torah. For an accurate transmission of anything as extensive as the Oral Torah you need a stable environment. King Menashe’s 50 year reign of terror saw nany chachomim murdered and others forced into hiding. The Babylonians and Assyrians slaughtered hundreds of thousands and exiled others. The Romans did the same, creating an environment making it difficult to accurately remember. Just look at Masechet Succah. Much of the gemarah deals with the fact they couldn’t remember how many walls were needed nor the minimum or maximum size, and that was only 3 centuries from the churban.

    Syag, I’ve observed some odd behaviours at shiva houses. A friend and his father were sitting shiva for his mother and shadchanim came to check out the father. Real estate agents came to a friends shiva in Far Rockaway ( with his mother’s passing the house was going to be sold ) and handed out cards. Miahulachim from Israel came to our Rav’s shiva to sign their letters so they could go collecting in the community

    GH, you have to admit that Democratics denigrating Republican claims of fraud, legitimate or not, are somewhat hypocritical. Afrer all, Stacy Abrams gained prominence in the Democratic Party precisely because she never stopped claiming, without proof, that she was a victim of voter fraud. Hillary still calls Trump the illegitimate president.

    Noone has ( unless I missed it ) the 2 major reasons for wives going to work:

    1. The kolel system. Unless one or both parents are providing support, somebody has to bring in income while the husband is learning
    2. Yeshiva tuition. In my experience, yeshivas are reluctant to grant reductions in tuition to enable the mother to stay home

    What was the sin of Banks and Jordan? They wanted to ask questions as to why pleas of the Capitol police for more help was ignored ( by Pelosi ). Pelosi only wants committee members who think like her, which will result in a lack of any belief in the accuracy of its findings. Recent polls have shown that the % public having confidence in the committee is dropping
    To GH and jackk- had the unarmed protestor shot dead by the police been BLM , would the two of you still be so quick to exonerate the cop?

    This commission is a far cry from being impartial. Pelosi rejected Jordan and Banks but included Adam Schiff, a hyper political politician who repeatedly lied about having ( but never presented) damning evidence about Trump? She included 2 anti Trump Republicans. In many respects, this is simply Pelosi’s third attempt at impeaching Trump.

    An example of a kashrus overreach. About 25 to 30 years ago, the Vaad of the Five Towns decided to add a second page to their hashgacha posted in store windows. Right side dealt with. Kashus in the store. The left side dealt with how the owners lived at home ( i.e. tznius, hair covering, did wife wear pants, did man daven with minyan etc ). All the stores refused, saying their personal lives were none of their concern . The Vaad backed down

    20 years ago the yeshiva my great nephew told my niece that he was ADD . Basis for the diagnosis? They expected him ,at the age of 7, to sit at his desk from 9 to 6 with virtually no recess and 1 hour for lunch. To the school’s surprise by 3 pm he would get antsy, lose concentration and would get hit by the rebbe for not knowing the place.
    Instead of medicating, my niece found another yeshiva that was more accommodating and by the time he was 9 he had the zitzfliesh to sit and not get antsy

    Additionally, the use of the term Jim Crow by Biden cheapens the term. I know how I feel when non Jews use Holocaust to describe relatively mild situations. Actual Jim Crow entailed lynchings and severe restrictions on voting rights, civil liberties ( i.e. separate white and black bathrooms, water fountains, schools, lunch counters)

    GH, I would venture to say not one ballplayer has actually read the law. They very likely are going by the calm words of our great uniter, President Biden, who dishonestly called it a Jim Crow law.
    The President was awarded 4 Pinocchios for his distortions by the left wing Washington Post. For example,the President said that the polls would have to close by 5 pm.
    If anything, it is the Democrats and people like GH who are the true racists. After all, they are alleging that black and Latino voters lack ID’s and the intelligence to be able to understand what it takes to acquire one. BTW, is it racist for Delta to require a picture ID to board a plane? For the Post Office to require and ID to pick up your mail? To get a passport?
    Major League Baseball is being very hypocritical. Rob Manfred, the Commissioner, is a member of the Augusta ( Georgia ) National Golf Club and plans on attending the Masters Golf Tournament this week. Until recently only white men were allowed to be members but this doesn’t bother Manfred. Baseball has also formed business relationships ( as has the National Badketball Assoc ) with China, which has put 1,500,000 Uighurs into concentration camps

    The language didn’t change, just the alphabet. Noone really knows why the change was made. Some of Bar Kochba’s minted coins have Paleo-Hebrew on them. I sometimes wonder when I hear a crush based upon the Aramaic letters in the Torah since that’s that how the Torah was written for centuries . How do we know that sifrei Torah had been written in Paleo-Hebrew ? The Sanaritans, who copied everything we did when the Assyrians brought them in, still write their sifrei torah in Paleo-Hebrew.

    Um, I know about the Arizal changing the minhagim. But all the people who subsequently became Chassidim changed their minhagim and nusach to do so. Did they all do ateras nedarim? Ask their fathers permission? My point about the chassidim is that they are an example of when minhagim were subject to change

    Reb Eliezer, you picked a poor example. We’ve had a calendar for approximately 1700 years so the reason is extremely unlikely, if not impossible. to reoccur.
    I also wonder how Chassidim were able to abandon centuries of minhagim, to the point of even changing nusach and th ed definition of zman tefilah. I’ve heard the reasons but all it means is that you can’t change/abandon minhag except when you want to.

    Scenario: you’re at your doctor and he’s just given you your eighth refill for a powerful antibiotic. You worriedly ask, how sick am I?
    He responds that you’re healthy, the infection is long gone. So, you ask, why the refills. He replies that even though the original reason for the antibiotic no longer applies, it’s now become your minhag and you have to keep taking it.

    Here’s what I find fascinating. Liberals and leftists fight against any measure that requires a photo ID for registration and voting. They base it on the belief that it somehow discriminates against people of color and poor people. Yet there is no objection when it comes to air travel as the truth is anybody can easily obtain, and in fact already has, as an ID

    Most airlines require a photo ID ( usually a driver’s license ) and it has to match name on ticket. An upgraded form of driver’s license ( or non driver ID) called Real ID will be required to board any domestic flight as of October 1, 2021

    Bored guy, states rights was Confederate post-Civil War propaganda. If you examine prewar Southern newspapers and speeches, particularly those by Jefferson Davis, states rights was very low on the list of reasons. Slavery was number 1. It was only after the war, as people were trying to recast their images, was states rights highlighted as part of the “Lost Cause” fairy tale.

    Some facts:

    3. The nursing homes were not prepared to deal with Covid
    4. Cuomo’s Dept of Health supervises the readiness of nursing homes. Of 600 nursing homes, 100 are rated one star ( out of 5 ) only because you can’t be rated no stars
    5. The Javits Center and the Navy hospital ship were available April 7

    Charlie, ct lawyer where were you for the last 9 months? What happened in Washington was an inevitable outgrowth of the continuous unchecked rioting and violence in Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis and elsewhere. Police were told to back off as noone was prosecuted. People were assaulted, raped and murdered in the peaceful Seattle autonomous zone. A CNN reporter reported peaceful protests in , I believe Wisconsin, while fires raged behind him. Did you protest when BLM looted and destroyed businesses with impunity? When they killed that retired cop in St Louis ? When BLM rioters in LA branched off to deface shuls and day schools in Fairfax?
