Why dont you just let people make their own decisions on things that are not a dvar halacha. If a cup of milk spills into your chicken soup ask your LOR.

Kaplan never spent a day in YU. Quoted from an online bio: “He graduated from City College of New York, was ordained at the Jewish Theological Seminary and received a master’s degree from Columbia University. He served as associate rabbi of Kehillath Jeshurun, an Orthodox synagogue in New York”.January 18, 2009 3:08 am at 3:08 am in reply to: Curiosity….Rav Yosher Ber ZTL #692411

Ya, pretty lucky. Huh?January 16, 2009 6:18 pm at 6:18 pm in reply to: Curiosity….Rav Yosher Ber ZTL #692406
OK, good so you made an educated argument. That is allright, I assumed it was a yeshivish jerk-reacton to the realities of history. However, your theory is the best I could come up with also but its very far. R’ Shaul Lieberman wasn’t the chancellor at JTS. Nor would anyone make a connection between someone learing in Slobodka with R’ Ruderman to then, being his student in Marylnand and becoming chancellor .January 16, 2009 3:05 am at 3:05 am in reply to: Curiosity….Rav Yosher Ber ZTL #692404
The Rosh HaYeshiva was the head of the Yeshiva, R’ Shmuel Belkin. Rabbi Solovetchik was the Rosh Yeshiva, along with R’ Lifshitz, R’ Alpert, R’ Zaks etc. Like a magid shuir in the Mir is a RoshYeshiva but not the head like R’ Noson Tzvi Finkel.January 16, 2009 12:29 am at 12:29 am in reply to: Curiosity….Rav Yosher Ber ZTL #692403
I dont know who he is refering to. but why would you automatically assume it isnt true? That is very naive.January 15, 2009 12:23 am at 12:23 am in reply to: Curiosity….Rav Yosher Ber ZTL #692393
For further reading on this topic there are a lot of interesting books:
Between Berlin and Slabodka (also has a chapter on R Yitzchok Hutner)
The Rav – 2 volumes (R Aaron Rakeffet)
Orthodoxy Awakens (victor Geller)

um, i was actually being serious. It is a merit to the Rav that his talmidim and admirers (very few here now, mind you) who hav gathered here are being very respectful. My point was that in another topic which draws other crowds I doubt it would be this way. again: if you understand what i mean.January 14, 2009 4:19 am at 4:19 am in reply to: Plans For Winter Vacation #637115
no i have been around for a few months. I was actually recenty wondering if when people see my name, if they recognize it and identify me with my previous comments and opinions.
No, it isnt difficult at all, ive done in alreday in Miami. I bring a beach bag with ice tea, tuna and crackers, a Gemorah and a Kol Haolam Kulo.January 13, 2009 2:00 pm at 2:00 pm in reply to: Plans For Winter Vacation #637102

Right, how could i have forgoten R. Meiselman (the Rav’s nephew) and R. Shurkin. Not familiar with R. Islin though. Is he a Rosh Yeshiva at REITS?
Also, I don’t want to miss R. Shneur Kotler who learned in the Rav’s shuir.January 12, 2009 8:39 pm at 8:39 pm in reply to: Curiosity….Rav Yosher Ber ZTL #692372

Probably his son in law R’ Ahron Lichtenstein, followed by R’ Herchel Shachter, R’ Ahron Rothkoff-Rakefet and R’ Menachem Genack.

Wow! i dont even know what to say to that.
You by addmiting to being a hypocrite, ipso facto admitted to using the internet for purposes other then what the rabbonim recommend. Therefore either (1) you dont really agree with them and chose to do what you want, or (2) you agree with them but cant help your self, and you are the type of person on the internt that the rabbonim are worried about.
I guess i was able to think of something.January 9, 2009 3:34 am at 3:34 am in reply to: Living In A Modern World #630379
Isnt everybody in this forum who is arguing with gawker being a hypocrite? I dont understand how people can say things, true as they are, like: “It means adapting our lifestyle to fit the Torah, as espoused by the Gedolim Shlitta”, “why do we always think we our smarter than the rabanim”, “we have to trust our gedolim”!!!! and not listen to the gedolim.
HELLOOOOOOOO, arent you the very people not currently using the internet for business but rather for information and enjoyment? if these are truly your beliefs than go read WallStreetJournal.com and invest your money on E-Trade. but what are you doing here?January 6, 2009 10:33 pm at 10:33 pm in reply to: Posuk in Tz’fanya (Trei Asar) About Zman Moshiach #630877

Its possible the chosson Ezi Gellis is a friend of Shloimy Steinman. Maybe he’s not a real singer. He should be though.December 21, 2008 5:32 am at 5:32 am in reply to: Who’s Your Favourite Singer(s)? #1055089
I heard Shloimy Steinamn at a chassuna in New York. I would say the name of the families if I could so people could recognize the singer if they were there. (if they wont delete it the chossons last name was Gellis). He was singing with Shloimy Daskal which I know has CD’s out in stores. He’s also very good.December 21, 2008 5:22 am at 5:22 am in reply to: Who’s Your Favourite Singer(s)? #1055086
Nobodys heard Shloimy Steinman at a chassuna? I thought since he’s so good he would be at a lot of chassunas.
I also like Yirmiyahu Daman (Belz).December 21, 2008 4:57 am at 4:57 am in reply to: Who’s Your Favourite Singer(s)? #1055080

Misachek Bikuvia is only when one gambles for a living. occasionally gambling is not Misachek Bikuvia and thus the player is not posul l’edus. This may not “sound” right and it may hurt your sensitivities, but thats the halach and this is not assur at all.December 12, 2008 2:29 am at 2:29 am in reply to: Is There an Eruv in Lakewood? #627181

It’s not really a question of muttar or assur. It doesn’t fall under the category of “mesachek b’kuvia”December 12, 2008 2:28 am at 2:28 am in reply to: Kvitlach. Muttar or Assur? #837279

Can we please stop it already with the chumras and prohibiting things that are a natural part of modern life. If we allow things to just keep getting tighter and tighter around everyones necks it will result in a lot of people leaving the fold (oh ya, i mean more than it’s already caused).
When I was growing up my frinds in yeshiva who didn’t have TV’s were completely obsessed with it. they were at their grandparents house every sundaay to watch and whn they went to friend homes with Tv’s all they wanted to do was watch TV.
The key is: everything in moderation. And you cant keep poeple away from things as normal as a portable telephone.December 5, 2008 7:12 pm at 7:12 pm in reply to: The Yetzer Hara of Bitul Zman – Online – Internet Addiction? #1076950

she must live in Israel with Moshe because he grew up with her and she is a person he recognizes. Its possible he doesnt even really know his grandparents.
