Thanks Midwest2, that’s a great input.March 6, 2018 11:51 pm at 11:51 pm in reply to: Annoying Shidduchim Questions #1483203
I don’t know why you had to spill ink on this which is not the main point at all, but Wikipedia is available at your fingertips.
“White people is a racial classification specifier, used for people of Caucasian ancestry, with the exact implications dependent on context. The usage of “white people” or a “white race” for a large group of (mainly European) populations, defined besides other characteristics by their light skin and contrasting with “black people”, Native Americans, “colored” or “persons of color” originated in the 17th century. ”March 6, 2018 11:51 pm at 11:51 pm in reply to: Best Shidduch Story You’ve Ever Got #1483204

People who ask those questions do need to look at themselves in the mirror and do some soul-searching.
I have had a woman in shul point to a new guy at our shul saying we should get a shidduch without either of us knowing that guy – JUST BECAUSE WE’RE BOTH NON-WHITE JEWS. I almost stopped breathing!December 7, 2017 11:06 pm at 11:06 pm in reply to: Why are the lakewood rabbanim so against an eruv in thier Town?? #1422638
off topic but I heard over Shabbes from someone from the UK that in his kehillah there’s an eruv but no one carries within it and if anyone does, he will even be denied an aliyah!!!
You can always have politics, eruv or no eruv… I tend to think that having an eruv is always safer – if you can afford to arrange for all that property ownership…December 7, 2017 11:02 pm at 11:02 pm in reply to: How to help guys in Torah learning /prevent bitul Torah #1422630
Thanks all for the great replies! And I should surely daven for them more.
And yes, I work but also learn myself every day B”H… I have a chavruta from Jinspire One on One Learning whom I meet over skype – highly recommend that to anyone feeling alone learning in diaspora/ a small community by the way.
HaLeiVi – Actually the groceries are standard stuff for the public community the bachurim just happen to use them more, but thank you for your remark on tznius – will be careful 🙂
Gadolhadorah – you’re very on point for that, I’m on the way to getting a professional qualification which unfortunately is non-transferable to other jurisdictions (oy) but beezrat Hashem hoping to find something new that also pays decently in a frummer location where I would do shidduchim when I’m ready…November 21, 2017 1:37 am at 1:37 am in reply to: Funny Shidduch Stories #1407858
It’s so nice that you guys have such cute stories! I only have experienced/heard sad stories… BS”D not anymore in future!October 4, 2017 2:58 am at 2:58 am in reply to: Chumrot in women’s clothing – Help decide! #1378458
You all are amazing, thank you for helping me gain some clarity.
The yetzer hara likes to blur things up when you do the right thing 🙂
yid18 – thanks for pointing out about the married vs unmarried difference. That was very useful info that I didn’t know about. In any case, I also would prefer my husband wanting me to dress the way I do outside, and only dress flashy inside home if that’s what he would like. The Talmud on Abba Hilkiah’s wife dressing up to him coming home really speaks to my heart.
GAON – very helpful Torah insights. Shkoiyach.
A blessed and happy Sukkoth to everyone! A gut kvittel!!September 28, 2017 9:34 pm at 9:34 pm in reply to: Chumrot in women’s clothing – Help decide! #1373812
Thank you for the brilliant points raised.
Gaon, I’ve actually tried putting on some mint green nail polish after being shomer and I was grossed off myself. I used to like red polish etc but now not at all, I guess applying what everyone said I should pick out chumrot that I genuinely feel comfortable about and stick to those.
And yes Lilmod I am asking mostly due to worrying about what others think of me. Not a very leshem shamayim starting point I guess.
Gmar chatimah tovah to all!
Have an easy and meaningful fast.September 28, 2017 10:59 am at 10:59 am in reply to: Chumrot in women’s clothing – Help decide! #1372742
Thanks so much for the encouragement guys, I guess it’s just Amalek trying to discourage me as he always does 🙂
