    And I know many children who were 8 years old when they moved from E”Y to the USA that they totally forgot all of their Hebrew and only spoke in proper English. A shanda! Misken!

    It happens to everyone, Jews and non-Jews.. You just pick up what’s around you being immersed in a language. I’m sure the Chinese parents were horrified that their children refused to speak Chinese at home when they came back from school daily.

    The new part of Givat Ze’ev. There is a “vaad ichlus,” so don’t expect America. Expect America<u>ns</u> who are charedi.

    Agan Ayalot – Plenty of us Anglos work here, but we are all charedi Americans, not just Americans in Israel. Half of the Israelis also speak English.

    More or less we believe you, @maataomer – I posted my comment before the moderation showed up.

    I have PERSONAL experience with Trade-24. I have been in their Ramat Gan offices, and met their advisers.

    They talk nicely, but they make it seem easier than it is. Their platform for following traders seems nice, but you don’t know anything about their traders history.

    I lost a bunch of money because of their sweet talking “this is not risky” when it very much is.

    If you have $20,000 with forex, don’t expect to be learning in Kollel on the level of risk they’ll want you to go into. 5% monthly is amazing in Forex – but they’ll try to convince you for 20%. 5% on $20k is $1000/month (assuming there are no extra fees). If you had $200k, that’s great. but you’re going to enjoy $1000, and it won’t be enough, and you might risk more.

    They are a broker who trade against the trader, assuming (95% of the time they’re right) you will fail and lose everything. They will send you to “mirror” other traders – which basically means there is no accountability.

    You are in Kollel, you might think there’s no way to earn a living otherwise. It’s NOT true.

    If you want to invest in forex, I ONLY recommend “Goldstar” from the Simple Trader platform. The problem is that US citizens are officially barred (due to the Dodd-Frank act) from participating in Forex. Trade-24 is doing something that is illegal if they are catering to US citizens. Not that it’s against halacha, but their brokerage could theoretically get shut down and your money stuck.

    They hate it when you try to withdraw. They will give it to you eventually, but it will be a fight.

    I have better ways for you to make money. I think investing in Fintech, especially in Merchant Cash Advances, is a better way to make 10-20% yearly return on investment. And not much work. I’d love to give you advice.

    I am by far NOT holding in gittin with halacha. However, we much all realize the approach to the concept of a get in the first place is from the Torah HaKedosha. As heard from one great speaker, if nobody is “in charge” of the relationship, the woman is not a wife – she’s a “pilegesh,” or, if you want to rile up the person asking the question, say it in English: a concubine. There’s no direction or leader – there’s just a mutually agreed idea that they are together.

    Jewish marriage has responsibilities on each side, and the Torah, Moshe Emes v’Toraso Emes, and Chazal the bears of the mosora of Torah she ba’al peh, had nothing but the most pure and best intentions for marriage to work. A get is a part of that process.

    I just wanted to make sure everyone knows why the halachic debate being had here is germane in the first place.

    In other words, to answer the question of the asker, it -is- sometimes proper to withhold a get. The main point of the get is to show that the husband has a certain control. And that -is- respectful to women. V’Ain Cahn Makom L’ha’arikh.

    We have to make sure we don’t insert our false and sometimes, unfortunately, ingrained Western Feminism values into this discussion. The Torah is NOT Western, and it is NOT American. It is JEWISH, the best feminism that exists.
