That is a disgusting way to describe anyone, let alone a yid.
Halevai that would be true. Many extremely frum Guys and girls from really frum homes have fallen real fast- and it started with a click of the mouse. And they fell real bad, unfortunately.
I know many of these people, very well. And its very scary, and very sad.
The yetzer hara does not discriminate between circumstances. If anything, he tries harder on those who are stronger.
Rational Frummie: “If you have a good support system of values and love of yiddishkeit from home, the Internet is absolutely no problem. If not, it can lead to aveira”
Shalom to You: “WIY- it’s only a problem for men. Women may not understand the Yetzer Hora since they don’t have it”.
That is simply absurd. Of course women have that yetzer hara. Maybe not as great, perhaps but big nevertheless and I know many, many girl/women from great homes whos entire lives were destroyed by the internet.
I don’t think there are more OTD kids in Lakewood than anywhere else.
There’s OTD kids everywhere, unfortunately.
writersoul lol- mine says that all day long. I just have to look at my phone and its says “please say a command”. Like my eyes conveyed that I was looking to command it to do something.
Says me: I agree wholeheartedly with the 8th grader one- they were sooo cool when I was in school.
DY- you are right, in our minds we know that reform etc is not Judaism at all, but a goy will have a very hard time wrapping their mind around the fact that people that call themselves jews, aren’t observing Judaism altogether.
Actually just the other day a non-jew asked me if there is different kind of judiasms, and I told her no, that there is just one- that we follow from the Torah.
She asked me why some people are “jews” but virtually assimilated. So I told her that being a jew is a born status. Some people choose to observe the religion, while others don’t.
I did not, however, mention about reform, conservative etc cuz I had no idea what to answer her on that
Peerimsmeach- Why are you screaming?May 1, 2013 12:15 am at 12:15 am in reply to: Upgraded from a smartphone to a kosher phone? Tell us how your life improved! #950005
Shraga 18: I think its great what you did, and kol hakoved.
However, I dont think that theres an issue with a regular simple verizon phone without any internet access or games etc…
My phone has just call and text, and I use text for convenience.
If I wouldnt have texting, it would be difficult.
Don’t get me wrong- I would do things even tho its hard if it really has to be done. I downgraded to a simpler phone without internet capabilities even though its much harder now that I have to go in to my office every time I want to check my emails.
However, I do not see that texting has a negative effect on my life.
Apparently it did on you, and now that its working for you- yasher koach!
But I dont think a reg simple phone that’s not a kosher phone is an issue for many peopleMay 1, 2013 12:07 am at 12:07 am in reply to: Separate Times For Bochurim & Sem Girls In Gateshead #1029731
I think that in a town where there is just so many people in such a tiny place, it needs to be separate.
If Gateshead had many more stores and a bigger area, it might not be that way
Doesn’t the Torah give capital punishment to those who kill others?
If that is what the Torah decides is befitting, then it must be so.
Cherry Bim: “Newcommer, cheer up. We don’t live forever. So whatever is troubling you; it is only temporary. In a hundred years, it won’t make a difference and no one will care”.
Now,thats not very comforting! Maybe in 100 years, it wont make a difference, but 100 years is a long time! Besides, we have to live in the moment and focus on being happy right now, not waste our life away cuz in 100 years, its not gonna matter anyway.
Newcommer: Try to sit down and think where your source of unhappiness is coming from. If its coming from a fear or worry abt the future, strenghtening ur emunah may help.
If if its fixable, try to fix it. If its a general feeling of unhappiness with no cure then try excersizing, socializing, and being busy.Strengthening your connection with Hashem will always help though, since living with Hashem gives you comfort, meaning and feeling that you are not alone.
Good Luck!!April 28, 2013 2:53 am at 2:53 am in reply to: Letter circulated in Brooklyn about Motzei Shabbos hangouts #950780
To Rational Frummie and everyone else in agreement with him.
I am confused as to why on earth this arguement is going on in the first place.
Hashem, through his Torah clearly states the socialising between genders is assur. PERIOD.
That is Halacha. And all your proofs in the world aint gonna change the halacha.
And besides, Hashem never, ever, commands us to to anything that is not possible to do. So what you are essentially saying is that you think you are smarter then Hashem.
Just in case Hashem needs someone CV to back Him up, there are plenty chassidish/yeshivish people who do not socialize b4 marriage and date perfectly fine, albeit slighttly akward in the beginning, get engaged, and live beautiful marriages.
on the ball: Popa is just making fun cuz he gets nervous from the word clarity
sure! we daven for it in ata chonen.. insight, understanding- all means clarity basically
huh? My brothers have been walking arond for weeks now telling everyone that Bello died!
Nope- cuz I have this weird thing that if something is advertised, I dont want to buy/use it!
Iww.. GROSS. that video was totally disgusting!!
Hashem please help your people!
And if you dont understand what is terribly wrong about that video then may Hashem look after you and protect you……..
fyi Gateshead New is the most amazing place on the planet earth
when my sis was sem age abt 8 years ago, her whole grade went 2 israel except 2 girls. This past year, only 20 girls out of 65 in the grade went to israel.
so the fad is dying down- im gladDecember 5, 2012 3:26 am at 3:26 am in reply to: You were just served a heaping plate of freshly fried delicious potato latkes… #911553
rebdoniel- glad u didnt
Caleefornia- as a girl in the shidduch parsha, my personal opinion is that you wear shab. def. but not wedding. I would wear heels if you r comft. walking in them.
To SaysMe- well said.
Thats exactly what I was going 2 write

AVOID THE GUY AT ALL COSTS. It is not our job to run around trying 2 bring these crazy and dangerous individuals back.
By engaging in conversation with them, you are putting yourself in possible danger. You might laugh this off and think its silly, saying you’re way 2 strong 4 these guys, but the truth is no one is and we dont need to hear their garbage anyways.
Just protect yourself and your kids from these guys.June 28, 2012 2:59 am at 2:59 am in reply to: Which singer can you listen to completely nonstop without getting “figuratively #882046
No one that I know of. If you listen to anything “completely non stop” your’e gonna get sick of it- at least for me!
Kol Hakavod to you.
I know that Chai Lifeline has many oppurtunities to do chesed like you describe. I am a volunteer in NJ but I know they have a huge operation in Brooklyn as well. You can become a “big brother”, and do hospital respite.
As well Mesameach in Lakewood is always looking for volunteers to cheer ppl up and visit hospitals, I dont know if they have a base in bklyn also.
As for learning, you can become a Oorah Torah Mate- call them!
Hatzlacha with your quest for chesed!
Some of EG acapella cds are very “kosher” with just singing and noises with the mouth but other songs like ashrei, amen, and yavohh are real music! They have drums, some clinging noises and they make the voices in to a tune so it sounds like real music…
yungerman ur just halarious
I am a teacher in a classroom of 8 year old boys and one of my students are definetely passively agressive. He won’t say no to my face when I say something, he’ll just not do it in a quiet passive agressive way or take on purposely a veeery long time to do it as if 2 say- I dont have 2 listen- but in a very quiet way. Its often hard 2 see passive agression since it is very subtle, but still defenitely has 2 b addressed.May 1, 2012 9:25 pm at 9:25 pm in reply to: Horrific story of Frum Jew imprisoned in brutal jail in Bolivia #875705
cherrybim- nothing. they havnt even looked in to the “allegations” made against him yet…
Shticky Guy, this week in the Ami they posted a list of what we can do for him and senate memebers #s 2 call… you can look it up there…
However, the most helpful thing we can do for him is 2 DAVEN DAVEN,DAVEN!!! Keep him in your tefillos always….
His Tehillim name is: Yaakov Yehuda ben Shaindel.
May Hashem grant him a yeshuah bikorov…
I have actually asked Rav Yisroel Belsky this question and his answers was that its stealing to copy music from someone else instead of buying the cd. To those who say that u wud not have purchased it, who said? If u are copying the music, them u obviously like it and may very well purchase it! Honest yidden try to make a parnassah and we prevent them from doing so by copying music from other people. Rav Belsky told me that u already bought the cd, and u wanna copy it so u cud have 1 for the car, and 1 for your house, then its mutar since u wudnt have bought another 1 just for your car.
Theres a psak halacha from a Gadol with out any of us coming up with our own opinions.
bp27- well put
I do not really understand what this whole discussion is about.
The halacha states clearly that it is assur to touch the opposite gender unless it is your immediate relative.
It is not a chumra of any kind but a serious sin if trangressed.
Mazal Tov! My sis had a baby boy- my first niece or nephew! ðŸ™‚
WOW- Giggle Girl.
Whatever u said was completely true- and very well written.
I was thinking of formulating a response but then I read your post and it says everything I wanted to say!
That is the very truth about emunah and bitachon.
Thank You so much!
Just informing you that I, for one, am 1 person who does not take a thing you say seriously.
Actually, I pity you.
pretty impressive that u chose a middah and u wanna work on it.
Like with all middos, we have to slowly work on it, piece by piece till we get better and better. Running 2 the opposite extreme is dangerous and will in all likelhoods end in a flop.
Choose something small to start working on. This could be 1 person who u find hard to give to and once a day give something to him. Or this could be 1 act u find hard to do (such as let a car go b4 u u) or whatevr and do it once a day. As you start training urself more and more and u feel the barriers of selfishness falling a bit more each day, u cud add on something else 2 “practice”. Eventually, u will find it starting 2 become more natural 2 u. Remember that breaking middos is hard and may take a long time- (even a lifetime!) but with hard work, u’ll get there Iyh.
Im sorry but I just had 2 make this thing in 2 1,000 posts.lol
Hey! How did u know- I think I have this fridge opening door syndrome…
Any cures- Please- I think I have a very severe case of it.
I stand every morning in front of the fridge for hours to decide what to eat… and then Im late for work.
I have a suggestion for you.
How about emailing the guy back and asking him straight?!
I am really sorry to hear of the tremendous pain you are in right now. I can not offer you any medical advice since I am not learned in these subjects.
However, I can tell you that I know the MOST EFFECTIVE cure for any disease in the world- tried and tested with best results…
Tefilla!! I am not saying that you are not davening. All I am saying is that if you write with such helplessness, there is a great chance that yo do not FULLY believe that Hashem is more powerful than any doctor and is able to turn around your situation within minutes!!! Maybe the reason why you are left so helpless is because Hashem wants you to turn to Him with complete dependance and faith. If you tell Hashem, “Hashem, right now there is no medical way to get me out of this mess. However, I believe with complete faith that You are the One that gave me this nisyaon in the first place, and You are the Only One that can take it away. I know that since You are my loving Father, you only want whats best for me, and I trust that you will send me a yeshua now.” Then Hashem will surely hear your tefillos and answer you!Also, I would go to Gedolim for advice ( to see if there is any other option) or just for a bracha. I would also still make hishtadlus whenever possible, keeping in the mind that really only Hashem holds the key to your yeshua.
May you only see yeshuos and nechamos quickly!
Asking for information about a seminary on such a public forum such as the YW coffee room, is treading on very dangerous grounds, such as Lashon Harah. Not that there will fosure be bad things to say! I do not even know of the seminary at all. I just know that whenever we talk about an institution, there is always likely to be someone who was not happy, leading to public Lashon Harah- a terrible aveirah.
You do have a right to inquire about the seminary though, so I would suggest that you ask someone in pivate, where you could be sure that all the conditions needed for Lashon Harah Litoeles, is met.

great for the shalom bayis- a wife and a husband were in a fight- they were passing by a farm- with pigs. The husband to the wife-“relatives of yours-huh?” The wife”yeh- my in-laws”
We went to the pocconoes with all my daughters friends-we went snowtubing-if u check it up online, i dont remember the name, and we slept overnight by an inn nearby. but if that’s too far or too expensive, then even a iceskating trip, and then a party together, hot cocoa..etc was enjoyed by all. Hats of to you for being so involved with your kids!!!
