on the subject of tachanun, how come some girls do say tachanun, and some dont? are we supposed to?
Talking about step it up- can it be connected to a TV screen, or must it be computer?
Hmm Kapusta, you’re right. I’ll try to find out and come back with an answer iyh.
hudi, I’ve also heard that it has to do with the cheit, just didn’t know the explanation. It makes sense though
I am no rov, but this is what I’ve been told (I could have mixed something up, but as of right now I think it’s all correct)…
1. Left hand- ring, pointer, pinky, middle, thumb.
Right hand- pointer, ring, thumb, middle, pinky.
2. Should cut finger nails on Thursday night and toe nails on Friday
3. Yes, I have heard that
4. I have heard that as well
I think ‘The Living Letters’ children’s book says something about the melochim. I could be wrong, as I haven’t read it in quite a while and I dont have it handy at the moment..
Definitely your mint green option- It makes the room look so much more spacious!
Keep in mind that any colour you choose, it will look darker once you actually paint the wall. So in my opinion, whatever you choose- keep it light 🙂
Hatzlocha with your decision, and let us know how it turns out!
Ditto to Kapusta
How can you tell someone that they are wearing shatnez? You can tell by just looking at a garment that it is indeed shatnez?
Thanks mysterious mod
What nice rounding off I have 🙂
Did I write offensive things 5 times, that had to be deleted? 🙁
One was an empty post. Two were deleted threads. One was an outside link. Only one was mildly offensive. It was the joke about the pope and the rabbi.
Oh I suppose thats alright, then 🙂
I’ve been wondering- is there a way to delete our own posts (even while still in the edit stage) or must we make them blank and wait for you mods to delete?
I dont remember posting a link, but I believe you 🙂
Cute that you have records of what exactly was our deleted posts. And in retrospect, I’m happy the joke didnt get up 🙂
What are my statistics?
(This looks like fun) 🙂
Thanks Kapusta 🙂
Does anyone know the words (and meaning) of the last sentence of ‘Beep beep’ – Country Yossi
“He held on to his shtreimel, and yelled out loud and slow….?”
Thanks Wolf, I’ll test it out now 🙂
Guilt will kill you if you let it. Be careful, but live a normal life.
Well, I spose there really is nothing to do but keep living. Here’s what happened: some friends and I found some nosh in school (dw, ’twas hefker) and ate it, but only realised after that they must’ve been from before pesach (we checked the expiry date) and most likely was not sold… Whoops. Better be careful next time!
My laptop doesnt have a numeric keypad on the right. 🙁
Well, atleast now I know how to do it 🙂
And if it WAS eaten?
BTW, how do you italicise?
What is the halocha on eating chometz DURING THE YEAR, that was possibly not sold over Pesach?
Is it halachically ‘inedible’?
I like how you phrased that Daas Yochid 🙂
Halevi, how do you make a smily face?May 22, 2011 6:14 am at 6:14 am in reply to: Why don't jews have dogs? It is clear in the gemara and shulchan aruch that #770380
I may have misheard, but someone told me that reshaim come back as dogs as gilgulim, and therefore some jews dont like having dogs as pets.
Anyone else heard of this?
Does anyone have an update on what happened today at the courtcase? Thanks
Never heard of such a halocha- so interesting! If anyone has the actual source, I’d be most interested- Thanks!
Thanks aries. You make a lot of sense 🙂
apushatayid~ Why, what happened?
LSS glad to see you took my advice for your thread- we shall see if it works 🙂
#1: True, I have been to sleep away camp more than twice, but I agree with Stuffed Cabbage 😛
#2: False, unless I’m so talented that I even know how to hide my talents from myself…
ursula~ no, I wouldn’t tell her that I had this ‘dream’ about her.
aries, bpt~ So true! And that’s why I brought the shmiras haloshon example in the first place.. Funny thing is, I’m learning about rechilus at the moment, and it’s exactly the same concept abt something that’s not true and you CAN’T believe it!
Either way, I dunno how I can PASS the test, the dream felt so real! Also, thanks for understanding my the issue
boredinoffice~ I don’t generally have such vivid dreams as this one was. And especially I don’t remember them when I wake up.
HAKOL~ no, I never would’ve imagined such a thing, and I really don’t think that I would believe it if someone told me.
The slight difference in this case, is that I ‘SAW’ it, and that’s why I find it so difficult to ‘unbelieve.’ Ideas? Thanks
*think it works better sentence by sentence, but let’s try 🙂
LSS, remember yesterday’s discussion about how to make this game simpler? Can I suggest 1 person asks a q, and then everyone answers that q until people get bored of it? (I’m only saying this bc it seems that some people’s statements don’t make it bc the next person has already posted, y’know what I mean?
True. But only when I’m in a hiking mood
Now, since it says LSS posted 3 hours ago, there may be tonz of posts in between, but I’ll post a statement to be truth or falsified (if that’s a word)
You’ve got 3 neice/nephews
Sally~ Sounds about right
That’d make you hot. Yeah, but no 😛
So thats why we don’t do things (music etc)? And the reason why ppl keep a diff 33 is bc we are unsure which 33 days? (I made that up- is there a diff reason..?)
Also, what’s the Arizal’s minhag? Why do the full thing?
Can you guess
Sally~ Don’t need mine, your suggestion is perfect 🙂
true- you said ‘sometimes’
Ever tried eating a mango not with fingers? 😉
* that was in response to school. Never tried stuffed cabbage so I wouldn’t know
sometimes (does that count)
This game is complicated when you need to reply to the person above you, bc not always does your post come thru first..
You like quiet reflection by the sea after a long day
true (most mornings at least.)
You have a mobile phone
false. It’s raining outside
1- In my fam we keep the whole thing, but listen to music both chol hamoed and lag b’omer.
2- What are the different minhagim regarding the time you ‘keep’ it? Why 1st half, why 2nd half?
We both thought the same thought. If I would’ve stopped and thought a thought about the thought,like I ought, then I might’ve thought quite a thought- that the thought was already thought 🙂
Haha seedys, great 1!
Oh my! I just looked up and saw… I didn’t even realise! Sorry 😉
I thought a thought. But the thought I thought wasn’t the thought I thought I thought. If the thought I thought I thought had been the thought I thought, I wouldn’t have thought so much
Well, if you’re part of the British Commonwealth, then I suppose it’s part of your future 🙂
Otherwise, yeah- just another 2 randoms are now married.
s2021, now that you mention it… It makes sense.May 1, 2011 3:52 am at 3:52 am in reply to: whay are stockings allowed if they are see through? or are they not allowed? #763732

Yes! I’m always hungry come motzei Shabbos, though Shalosh seudos not so much..May 1, 2011 3:30 am at 3:30 am in reply to: whay are stockings allowed if they are see through? or are they not allowed? #763729
s2021- but isn’t there also a problem with measuring by ‘denier’ these days, bc they’re making the stockings ‘stonger’ but not thick enough? (or something like that- I heard somewhere that it’s an issue…)May 1, 2011 3:26 am at 3:26 am in reply to: whay are stockings allowed if they are see through? or are they not allowed? #763728
Well, on page 337 it goes on to say “In some communities only light coloured tights are allowed. This refers to medium brown, beige, light or dark grey and mild shades of off white. They do not allow dark shades such as black, because they are viewed as modern, etc…”
“In other communities, black tights and in some places even dark navy blue tights are worn, provided they cover the leg…”
Guess it depends on your community and what they deem acceptable.
But it looks like that instead of ‘see thru,’ you’re supposed to wear a ‘light’ colour.
Anyone to back me up on this? This is what I understand from the sefer…

In Rabbi Falk’s sefer, Oz vHadar Levusha, p329-330, he states that “see through tights are unacceptable because when such tights are worn, the legs remain fully visible and even more attractive than legs that are not covered at all.”
Then, in response to how much of the legs need to be covered- “Although the lower sections of the legs must be very well covered.. there is no obligation to screen off the legs so that they cannot be seen – in contrast with the upper section which must be hidden and disguised behind a dress or skirt. The upper sections of the legs contains the thigh, and the thigh and all that belongs to it must be completely screened off. This obligation does not apply to the lower sections of the legs which are not part of the thigh area.”
Brotherofurs, does this answer your question?
