WB JF02! It’s been a veeeery looong time. And happy belated 22nd birthday! (I’m exactly one week late, but you can’t blame me considering your 3.5 year absence.)
P.S. We got a new English enforcer during your extended leave. Her name is Haifagirl. She took off quite commendably where you left off.
DY: Why would you assume the case of a wife spending her husband’s money without reshus to be different than if someone took his dorm roommate’s money and bought something with it, without reshus? (Assuming it could be proven it was the roommate’s money and the roommate claims he gave no reshus.) Would you similarly say that the storeowner could keep the money with hamotzi mechavero alav haraya?
zsd: It certainly is halacha. The key issue is whether she had reshus or not, either implied or expressed. In the OPs case, it is clear she had no reshus from him. Not even implied reshus.
anon1m0us: You completely misunderstood. Of course you can’t demand any compensation from your wife, as she has no assets, it is all yours. But you have a legal right in beis din to demand that other women your wife gave (your) money to, to return it to you, as it was your money and your wife has no reshus to spend it without your permission.
akuperma: Nowadays the goyim almost as often have kids outside a relationship. So who the father is typically isn’t contingent on marriage, and the authorities usually recognize that.
This sounds like a common enough problem that you could inquire with a simple phone call to a lawyer or even an online legal forum/discussion board.
The chareidi rabbonim warned the Israeli government not to bring over the Russian goyim BEFORE they did it. So, yes, it certainly is their fault. They should never have brought those gentiles into EY.
No, you dropped the ball. No one writes a kesuba without the intent to consume it with the maaisa. Who are you kidding? If they write the kesuba, they are doing the maaisa.
So the two possibilities are either the mishkav zochorniks doing the maaisa with a kesuba or without a kesuba. If we could outlaw and otherwise stop them from doing the maaisa altogether, we by all means should work on accomplishing that very worthwhile goal. (And it should be note that, in fact, the maaisa itself was illegal in the United States until in the not too distant past. So it isn’t only a pipe dream.) But considering that writing the kesuba on top of the maaisa makes it that much worse (as we all agree), we should certainly at least work against letting it advance that far (i.e. with a kesuba).
And that is exactly what we see the Gedolim shlita advocating, as we saw above from Rav Shmuel shlita.
A wife cannot spend money without her husbands approval, since all the money is his. If she does, the husband can demand the money be returned to him from the person it was given to.
That’s what you should do.
benig: What you are basically saying is that the maaisa of mishkav zochor is terrible but doing the maaisa plus witing a kesuba for it is even worse than just the maaisa without the kesuba.
Is sending billions of dollars a year to Egypt a better use of money than to feed starving Koreans?
No ties? The U.S. and N.K. are currently in a state of war. (And have been so since the Korean War in the ’50’s.)
You got the facts wrong. Or, I should say that your questions only applies to those guilty of what you say. As to the rest of us, we don’t defend the medina or its PM at all. (Nor do we uncritically support Republicans, though 95 out of 100 times they are the better deal than the alternative.)
The U.S. used to send them emergency food aid but they stopped it after the two governments kept getting at each other throats.
The situation may be better or worse. Most likely the report has no bearing on the actual truth. Reports out of North Korea have historically been notoriously incorrect.
We didn’t ask the government to pave over the original pre-48 roads, etc.. We were happy using them. We can continue using the roads, etc. as we always had before.
I said ALL chareidim will stop paying any and all taxes. Working and non-working. Then they don’t have to fund our institutions and stuff.
There have never been reliable reports out of the reculsive North Korea, as no reporters are allowed in that country.
So take everything you read with 10 grains of salt.
The Chareidim will stop paying Israeli income tax and their stores wont send in VAT/sales tax and wont pay any other taxes or fees, and the government wont have to send our yeshivas money.
They dont pay us and we dont pay them. Fair enough.
torah613: Of course it is ethical. That is what a date is all about! You can find out more about your dating partner in one “getting lost” incident than five other dates combined.
Guys test girls reaction by pretending to get lost. Girls, you need not only be on your best behavior when he gets “lost”, but if you reject a date because he got lost then you failed the test. He wants to be “rejected” if that’s how you feel. He doesn’t want to marry a picky girl who flips out when someone gets lost.
A few short years ago they also said Tommy Lapid wasn’t going away anytime soon.
And see where he is now.
Limud Torah IS national service.
benignuman: Try to find any historical example where the gentiles officially sanctified and/or recognized homosexuality as a so-called “marriage”. That is a unique issue that the Gemora takes a stronger stand against than even “mere” relations outside of a recognized (so-called) “marriage”.
The Generals have publicly stated on the record that the Army is doing perfectly fine currently as it is without the Chareidim and they’ve clearly and unambiguously stated that the Army DOES NOT NEED THE CHAREIDIM.
They could not be clearer. What is so difficult to understand about that point?
They said the one and only reason they want to draft the Chareidim is for political reasons for the chilonim.
gavra: I got the “joke”. The point is that it is misapplied and off.
I don’t see any Satmar chasidim protesting the TSA or anyone. All I see is an article that makes some claims that it attributes to no one in particular.
mdd: Eretz Yisroel is not the chilonim’s home. Eretz Yisroel is the home of the Bnei Torah and the chilonim are the guests.
Since we agree that anyone who desires to learn Torah full time is entitled to do so, even if he doesn’t have a good head, let me ask you what DaasYochid asked earlier: If the State forced a certain percent of Chareidim to join the army and leave the Beis Medrash, who will choose who is going to be forced to leave the Beis Medrash? A test cannot be the answer, since as we agreed someone who cannot learn well but really wants to learn is entitled to do so.
1. If we shouldn’t take legal funding, we must be exempted from all taxation. Additionally, the rules specifically exempt us from the draft (as they have since the first day the State existed), so in this sense we in fact ARE following the rules.
2. A desire to learn Torah most certainly IS all that’s needed. Even if one doesn’t have a good head for learning. Of course effort must go along with it. See YD Hichos Talmud Torah 246:21 and see Rambam who says all that’s needed is to desire to learn.
3. The Israeli army is FAR more pritzusdik than the average American job.
4. They should continue having an army. No one said otherwise. There are plenty of chilonim to fill the army.
5. The Generals and Israeli politicians publicly said as much. And it was reported in the zionists own press.
The Amish also do not serve as an entire group. But we have much better reasons, as I enumerated above.
1. Because we (the Agudas Yisroel, etc.) oppose the very existence of the State. We cooperate with it since it de facto exists. And we don’t advocate its dismantelment since once it was born destroying it completely is worse. But we minimize our interaction and cooperation with it to the bare minimum.
2. Because anyone who wants to learn Torah full-time is entitled to do so even if he is a poor learner. All that is to be expected of him is to DESIRE to learn Torah.
3. Because the State Army is full of pritzus and will inevitably make many frum draftees into chilonim.
4. Because Torah learning is the true and best protection for Klal Yisroel, much more effectively than being a soldier.
5. Because the Army doesn’t need us. They are doing fine without us. Even their own Generals publicly admit that drafting Chareidim will NOT help the Army and, in fact, will make the Army’s job more difficult.
If you need to save money on groceries, there is a strong possibility you qualify for food stamps. You should apply to get it.
It is certainly and unquestionably assur to post a negative review on a subjective matter such as how the food tasted at a restaurant.
In the early part of the last century heroic yidden in America were moser nefesh to not work on Shabbos Kodesh. They would lose their job each and every week in order not to work on Shabbos Kodesh.
Now we celebrate looking for heterim — which may not even exist?
WM: To understand if and why anyone might disagree. There was no why’s provided by the respondent I addressed. (And I don’t believe any why’s will hold water, but would like to hear any theories.)
Regarding your first question, indeed you wouldn’t know beforehand if there are any negatives. [Though it is reasonable to assume most places with more than a few reviews will likely contain some negatives.] Since you know there might be loshon hora among the reviews, you ought to refrain from reading them.
V. Meshuganar: Sure it would be assur. Why shouldn’t it be?
Rav Yeruchem Gorelick (of YU) would refer to him, when speaking to others, as simply “JB”.
This is more informative:
zsdad: It was Rabbi Avrohom Sherman shlita, not Rav Eliashev, who ruled Druckman’s mass Russian conversions were not valid as he was converting Russians en masse who never accepted the mitzvos and never kept the mitzvos, even the morning after their mikva dip.
And, by the way, Rabbi Sherman is a religious zionist.
Rav Eliashev quit working for the rabbunut because of disgust with Goren’s reprehensible conduct in the Langer matter.
There is a health risk by using a bluetooth?
When did the period of “Achronim” end? Or are we still in the Achronim period today? If not, what are we in?
No he isn’t correct. No one ever changed anything after the fact. Not nowadays, not ever. What rabbonim have done, both nowadays and always in the past, is make a legal determination whether a purported conversion was ever valid in the first place.
This is one of the biggest chasodim that a person could do! Imagine, you will be living a lifetime of chesed. Every day you will be married to your spouse and tolerating her chasorins and helping her along with it. That is piling up chasodim each and every day of your married lifetime.
Unfortunately I cannot engage in this tremendous form of chesed due to cherem rabbeinu gershom and that I am already married to a wonderful spouse without any chesronos (other than having married me.)
danny: take your political diatribes elsewhere.
Y. Doe: That Klass member didn’t dispute the quote, he merely questioned its source. It is a well-known quote and that Klass (he is a cousin who works in the paper’s advertising department) himself said he heard the quote many times when he was growing up and in yeshiva.
It is a complete halachic violation of every precept of tznius. And that is true even if both dating parties agreed to practice date beforehand and both knew there is no prospect for marriage. This is even putting aside the false representation and lying to the dating partner if he/she is unaware that he/she is merely being used as a guinea pig.
2scents: That is still an abuse of the placard. The Department didn’t issue him the placard so that he can illegally park at a No Parking zone while he goes to work at his private employer.
(Hospital nurses in NYC aren’t issued placards to park in No Parking zones. MonseyFan indicated he saw a large Hatzala placard being displayed in his windshield. This happens a lot more frequently than is being admitted.)
Wolf: Where’s your Italian spirit? 😉
Thanks for the correction.
P.S. How would you address the substance of the question?
