qwertyuiop: Thanks I appreciate that! Btw whats up with the $ sign?
ames: Lol- ur starting to read me like a book!
ames: Thanks!-Its nice to know that I am making friends!
asdfghjkl are you really a mod.?You seem to run the show here-lol!
hey MOish1- Where is my banner -curious maybe you can beat him to it!
I have a feeling that some of the mods are using other user names?
Otherwise how would they keep us in check?
For the past day and a half I haven’t seen to much moderator action on the cr.Maybe its b/c we are all behaving ourselves-LOL!
A big welcome to teen.The CR is like one big family!This place is addictive. I am pretty new here to.I haven’t been able to stop posting.
A big welcome to the new mod.
Word of advice get urself a shield.
I wonder how on earth does one become a mod? With out getting to personal can you please explain Mr. mod. how one goes about getting this job!
ames: I wonder where the mods. are tonight.Do you think all of the bickering over here drove them away?
Yes.there is a Jewish Community there.There are people there that are associated with the Yeshiva(The Mesifta of Long Beach) that lives there as well.
To wolf: Some crazy people have a problem with ketchup on shabbos.Because ketchup is not a “classy food/very weekdayish” and they dont want that for their precious child.It doesn’t fit with their ideal/their shpitz of a Shabbos meal!I seriously feel that some peole need to be certified.
I agree with you that we need single functions.However nobody wants to make them for the younger crowds.When I go to chasunas there are so many boys and girls.Let them meet with proper supervision for lets say dessert or right after the chuppa before the Chosson and Kallah come in for dancing.Or have some sort of speed dating thing.Where nobody has to commit to everything.There are lots of cases where a boy’s mother will say no to a girl because she dosen’t think that the girl is pretty enough for her “Moshe Rabbeinu”.However her son may feel diffrentley when he sees the girl.The girl is rejected by the mother while her son may think that she is gorgeous!
Don’t tell me that its untznius because I don’t buy that.In the time of Chazal there was something called Tu Bav.Where a girl was not judged by her yichus and money!The girls use to dance in front of the boys.I am not suggesting that.However a tznius meetings/events with supervision needs to be made.
Nowdays in shidduchim it is very important to have a few things in mind:
1. Get your name out there if you have any relatives or family friends that have boys may know of boys from work or a Yeshiva.. let them know that you are looking for a shidduch.
2.Every Person needs to find a quality person. By quality I am refering to middos and Yaraei Shmayim, and Tznius.Quality does not refer to money, yichus, laces,tableclothes, ketchup on Shabbos ect.. or any of the other ridiculous quuestions that I get asked.Which people seem to think are what makes up a quality people.There are plenty of people that look all frum and have gone to the best yeshivos and Bais Yaakovs but are not really to frum and are involved in/with things that you dont want to be -vhameivin yavin
3.The most important thing of all:Someone gave me this piece of advice:
Do not let the Yetzer Hora get to you!Don’t let the Yetzer Hora bring you down.Try to think positivley and surround your self with positive thinking people.
4. Daven and don’t stop .This time period I have come much closer to Hashem.My Davening has a diffrent meaning now.
There is a shidduch crisis/mess whatever you want to call it.You can pretend it doesn’t exsist by burying your head in the sand.I have lots of friends that have been out of seminary from anywhere to 3-6 years and have never had a date they sit there waiting for the phone to ring, and they done plenty hishtadlus.However they are not “good enough”,”rich enough”,”yichusdig enough” -fill in the blank_____________.
The shidduch parsha is a tough one belive me I know.However you can’t give up hope.You have to do your Hishtadlus but at the end of the day it’s all in Hashem’s hands.There have been moments were I felt like packing my bags and going to an island where nobody knows me.There are times where I have had it.Shidduchim can be very fustrating.
However you have to remember that it is not Lakewood,or a Swiss Bank account, or any shadchanim that are going to guarantee you/get you your zivug it is Hashem.Hashem dosen’t take a two vacation to Florida, Eretz Yisroel ect…He is there for you 24/7.Shidduchim is like crossing Kriyas Yam suf.Some people have longer paths to take and others have shorter ones.I hope that all those that are still wating by the water banks that your sea voyage is a really short one!

-Pres. Bush pushed the button to the elevator in the white house. He was alone. The door opened up and he went in. Inside was Moshe Rabeinu. Bush gasped. Moshe ! The real Moshe. I need to ask you many things. Moshe was silent. Please Moshe tell me about all of the plagues and the wonders. Again Moshe Rabeinu was silent. The doors opened up and Moshe walked out and down the hall. Bush went after him and shouted Moses why don’t you talk to me? Moshe finally replied, ” The last time I spoke to a Bush, I spent 40 years in the desert!”

A rabbi dies and is waiting in line to enter heaven. In front of him is a man dressed in a loud shirt, leather jacket, jeans and sunglasses. Gabriel addresses the man, “I need to know who you are so I can determine whether or not to admit you to Heaven.”
The man replies, “I’m Moshe Levy, the taxi driver.”
“Gabriel consults his list, smiles and says, “OK. Take this silken robe and golden staff and enter Heaven.”
Now it’s the rabbi’s turn. He stands upright and says, “I am Benjamin Himmelfarb and I was the rabbi of Temple Beth Am for forty years.”
Gabriel looks at his list and says, “OK rabbi. Take this cotton robe and wooden staff and enter Heaven.”
The children were lined up in the cafeteria of an elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The teacher made a note, and posted on the apple tray:
‘Take only ONE . God is watching.’
Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies.
A child had written a note, ‘Take all you want. God is watching the apples.’
moish01 and asdfghjkl have already very graciously welcomed me on other posts! Thanks it is good to know that I will have people/friends on my side in the YWN coffe room- It can get dangerous in here at times -it is like World war III on some posts.LoL!
As the rest of you guess I am kind of new here.I have posted before on YWN before the coffee room came into existence.I am going to try an be an active member on the coffee room and post as much as I can.However as others might not belive I actually have a life.I dont want to get to personal over here but I have a full time job and I am in college( a Jewish one of course).I will check in and post when I can.
To moish01: I found this technical explaination:
Taking water for an example, its density is exactly 1. However the density of ice is around 0.8 because of air bubbles that get trapped during the freezing process. Lets say you put this liquid in a closed system (such as a beer bottle). Everyone knows density is weight / volume. Since the weight remains constant (you aren’t adding or subtracting anything from the closed beer bottle) that means you must change volume in order to decrease density. Since volume is on the bottom of the divisor it has an inverse relationship. That means you must increase volume to decrease density during the freezing process. We know that a beer bottle can only hold so much volume of liquid, so when that volume starts increasing its going to put pressure on the glass. This is about when it cracks and makes a mess. a bottle of beer is left in the freezer it will explode.
In other words the beer will explode-i know however the BMG/beer thing its just a joke!
If you want to get all analytical over here maybe we can come up with something that when BMG is in the freezer their ego expands when they are redt to thousands of girls, and then they feel the pressure when a thousand shadchanim and well meaning friends and relatives are running after them and by the time the freezer is open they are a mess – have exploded/are ready to explode, and are ready to run away!Lol!
To asdfghjkl: from what you posted before about JMAs- there were JMA awards in Eretz Yisroel.I belive that MBD and Shwekey were some of the performers that have previously won.I dont know if they still have the JMA’s. I belive that you can veiw previous JMAs on cds that they sell in E”Y called Chasidishkiet(only certain ones) hosted by Menachem Toker.
-Whats the diffrence between BMG and a beer bottle? The beer starts in the market and ends up in a freezer,BMG you start in the freezer and end on the market.

-A Breslover chassid was bragging about his Rebbe to a Litvak.
“You know that every Shabbos we give the Rebbe an aliyah, and even though he has been niftar for 200 years we all hear him say the brachah and we say “amen”.
“That’s not so impressive” said the Litvak. “Let me know when you plan on giving him hagbah
To asdfghjkl: Thanx for the warm welcome!No I dont have any other screen names.I have posted previously on some older posts on YWN before the YWN coffee room came into existence.I wonder if the YWN editor took this coffee room idea from BMG?
I have heard even “better” questions than the shoe laces and table cloth questions.
Does the boy/girls family have ketchup on their shabbos table with their coldcuts?
Where does the mother place her candels/leichter on the shabbos table or on a seperate table?
What color is the girls kitchen?
What size is the girl? If somebody asks me that question again I will ask the person what size pants is the boy.The boys relative dosent want a “fat” girl.Well guess what I dont want my cousin/friend/neighbor to marry a “fat boy”.
I get more crazy questions coming from the boys relatives than from the girls
