I was in ner israel and mercaz and i didnt smoke and neither did my room mstes
My son doesnt smoke. He does play ball alot. If theres only smoking or internet your saying in bais medrash EVERYONE either smokes or drinks or internet??? And what have bochurim done Before internet???? And filtered internet for breaks should be just fine
My son went to a yeshivish dorm where he says every room has a smosmoker or vaper and people get drunk every week. The rebbe also smokes. I worry for my son so i speak up! And im sick of the vaping in shul as well
It says One can not Rebuke a Lets as they make everything into a joke.
For example smoking and drinking is Addictive and a chilul hashem.
In the yeshiva referenced some get DRUNK weekly and its Not Purim. Is this a college dorm or a Yeshiva? And smoking and second hand smoke according to All Medical profesionals is DANGEROUS to health and life, It SAYS in the TORAH Vshamartem Meod Al Nafshosaychem and VChai Bahem and Kal Yisroel Arayvim Zeh Lazeh, That means serious chilul Hashem and Dangerous behavior should be STOPPED by Hanhalah in yeshiva. It also WRONGFULLY endangers through second hand smoke and PEER PRESSURE
Dangerous habits like smoking and drunkard level drinking are no joke
From the Surgeon Generals 2014 report on the Centers for Disease Control site
Every adult who dies early because of smoking is replaced by two new young smokers. If smoking continues at current rates, 5.6 million—or 1 out of every 13—of today’s children willultimately die prematurely from a smoking-related illness
This is pikuch nefesh and chilul hashem
It is pikuach nefesh and chilul hashem

I meant maybe in addition . Jewish networkinf. Also just pointing out some pitfals with a reminder all connections can see ones posts
It would be great if there was a jewish linkedin
I was also questioning “loving” heart sign posts as opposed to “liking”
I myself use linkedin. But if some are opposed to even photos of tsnius ladirs how would they feel of videos? And if shmoozing a lot with single or married women or vice versa is at some ppoint (???????) Wrong is it same by “posting”? And many many posts are indeed Not just business. Please see my earlier posted examples. Just things to be aware of.
Linkedin may be an important tool for business but there are pitfalls and shailos. Like is posting how much to articles by other genders at what point may be “flirting”. And if it is appropriate to “love” a post by another gender. One also needs to consider everything one posts or likes is seen by all connections. For example I saw a sheiteled person like 2 posts that included nivul peh and another (maybe a mistake) that liked a post ending praising an avoda zara. It alsoa sks how much video posting by women to what point is not tzniut
As an example I just saw a video post on LInkedin by a Heimish looking man with a big beard while he is jogging in the park with a fellow Linkedin Female connection who is dressed in legging pants.
I am sure YAted Neeman would not publish the photo. (is it just me or are these not ideal – especially to post to the internet?)
For example I just saw a video post by a Heimish man with a beard jogging with a Linkedin connection, who from the video was a lady jogging with him in jogging outfit. Is it just me or is this not kosher?
Where as in some communities in papers dont show womens faces in linkedin from heimish to goyish women post videos of themselves.
I useto look at linkedin as just a networking event buy now i see people posting or commenting on posts through out the day including heimish and chassidish as well as anyone men and women including many videos on internet and so often not exactly parnassa related.
Does It Seem Linkedin Has Turned Into the Facebook of Adults? Especially now with many Video Posts. I see even Heimish and Chassidish men and women posting and video posting on LInkedin often posting many times each day. There are even such “Parnassa Needed” posts as reflections on family life. Is this a Problem? Including Nashim making innocently many video posts on the internet?June 25, 2019 10:20 pm at 10:20 pm in reply to: Jobs in frum community we need our own version of aoc advocatr #1747012
How can we spread word to different kehillas to avoid discriminating whether to males or not heimish enough (a yids a yid) or age discrimination. Parnassa for a yidish family. We need a frum aoc or bernieJune 25, 2019 4:50 pm at 4:50 pm in reply to: Jobs in frum community we need our own version of aoc advocatr #1746862
And at what point should we toos people out as “Too Old”!?! I know we dont do that for Rebbeim in Yeshivas though one needs sharp mind for gemarah. Only people within 20 years of tehir lifetime are classified as Not too Young or Too Old for Hiring?!? Maybe we need a FRUM EOC 😉June 25, 2019 4:49 pm at 4:49 pm in reply to: Jobs in frum community we need our own version of aoc advocatr #1746859
I dont like MOST of what Bernie and AOC stand for but I DO appreciate their advocacy for people needing help such as regarding minimum wage or college student loans or tuitions for those that have trouble paying.June 25, 2019 3:48 pm at 3:48 pm in reply to: Jobs in frum community we need our own version of aoc advocatr #1746857
In todays world with FEMALE dentists, dermatologists, lawyers, judges, CPAs, etc it doesnt make sense to code Female for low paying job. Also, some females may want higher paying jobs and some Males may settle for less as well. Not right to CUT them out automatically without a chance.June 25, 2019 2:19 pm at 2:19 pm in reply to: Jobs in frum community we need our own version of aoc advocatr #1746782
I understand if most office is female can leave door orocked or winwindows open. Only issue if just one man and one

A. Which nk meet with mahmoud. Abbas
B. No one said litvish or chassidish, though i did mention a connection to satmar (at least in part)
C. Ok lets focus on who ever joins in rallies with enemies of yidden that lust to wipe them (us) outMay 18, 2018 3:35 pm at 3:35 pm in reply to: WE SHOULD PUBLICISE PHOTOS OF NETR+UREI KARTA FOR POSTING IN OUR NEIGHBORHOODS #1522798
What could be the compromise? That we should smile while obvious yiddin encourage publicly rotschai yisroel blood thirsty enemies of jews?May 17, 2018 6:09 pm at 6:09 pm in reply to: WE SHOULD PUBLICISE PHOTOS OF NETR+UREI KARTA FOR POSTING IN OUR NEIGHBORHOODS #1522531
A question is Hiw Wide Spread in SATMAR Enclaves these people are.
Recall past YW videos of play Protests against ISrael in their kids camps.May 17, 2018 6:09 pm at 6:09 pm in reply to: WE SHOULD PUBLICISE PHOTOS OF NETR+UREI KARTA FOR POSTING IN OUR NEIGHBORHOODS #1522530
This, it seems to me, is not Even A Shaila. Palestinians OPenly Incite that They Want to Kick Out all the Yidden from All Erets Yirsorel and Massacre as Many as They Can! Hamas AND Abbas PAY REWARDS to THOSE THAT DO!! At these rallies Palestinians Often Scream Itbah LaYahud (Slaughter the Jews) These are MalShinim And Bogdim. We Pray As Per Anshei Knesset Hagdola every day VLamlshinim Al Thi Tikva VChall Oyvai Amcha Maira Yikaraisoo. In past generations the term used for Traitors was Mosrim.
Especially Those That Voice Support For Satmar against Israel at certain Rallies – Should Stand Up to Publicly Condemn Encouragers of Rotschai Yisroel! (Murderers of Jews)April 30, 2018 10:13 pm at 10:13 pm in reply to: Jewish Jobs – Shouldnt Say Female Only Very Many Times #1514034
Joseph. A)Are there any other males at the job B) Are there several frum or otherwise women there C) What do YOU do if you are home and the cleaning lady is there and you are alone in the house (keep door unlocked?????????????????????) Is “Yichud” realy a common reason for blocking frum men from parnassah? (given A, B and C)April 30, 2018 5:50 pm at 5:50 pm in reply to: Jewish Jobs – Shouldnt Say Female Only Very Many Times #1513625
Mr Chanberlain If indeed girls do not get paid less what is the Real Reason we so oftyen see it oppenly said GIRLS or FEMALES or even YOUNG ENERGETIC GIRL wanted.
If it is a female employer is she prejudice against frum men getting parnassah?
If its a male – the Hailig Yid jst wants a girl tp keep him company?April 19, 2018 3:27 pm at 3:27 pm in reply to: Jewish Jobs – Shouldnt Say Female Only Very Many Times #1508954
A) Techincally when people interview in their MINDS they may be free to Discriminate and Not Hire. Regarding a Shomer Shabbos worker many other employers may feel if they can get someone there all the time as everyone else and not know Rosh Ahshana, Yom KIppur, Sukkos (5 days of yom tov), pesach (4 days of yom tov), shvuos (2 days) are automatically not available for work and the day before you need to leave early they may choose (for no Expressed reason) to Not Hire You .
B)I am Talking about non Jewish school teaching, non Negiah necessitating jobs. Jobs Yiddishe men need to support themselves and families!April 19, 2018 2:30 pm at 2:30 pm in reply to: Jewish Jobs – Shouldnt Say Female Only Very Many Times #1508936
It requires Negiah so it cant be another gender – though a shaite macher that doesnt see married womens hair should be fine 🙂April 19, 2018 12:53 pm at 12:53 pm in reply to: Jewish Jobs – Shouldnt Say Female Only Very Many Times #1508877
Thats a very good question.
Obviously I was not talking of religous positions as morah or rebbe.April 19, 2018 12:36 pm at 12:36 pm in reply to: Jewish Jobs – Shouldnt Say Female Only Very Many Times #1508860
you’ll find these in the Jewish papers and on line all the time 🙁
So maybe the rest of us between Chassidish and so called Modern Orthodox might need this to Re JEW Vinate. Its just that in todays world (internet, cell phones, etc) we need all the Help we can get.
It is Indeed Very Great That Our President is Not Bound by “Political Correctness” to the point of obstructing Justice and Security and Truth! At thr same time it is understood SOME Political COrrectness IS NEEDED as in to be DECENT. It is a Breath of Frsh Air after Pres Obama to see this regarding the Crazy Left.
Now… If Only Pres Trump would be AS CLEAR AS DAY in this regard with the Racists and Anti Semites of the FAR RIGHT. ESPECIALLY the VILE Neo Nazis and KKK! Islamic JIHADISM And NAZISM Are of the Same EVilAugust 15, 2017 2:36 am at 2:36 am in reply to: Should We View Satmar Growth and Anti Israel Indoctrination as Concern #1338977
This was copied and pasted fromm the Yshivaworld news web site of video taped Satmar camp activities on Tisha Bav
Thousands of boys from the Satmar camps in the Catskills gathered at the main campus in Napanoch NY, with smiling youngsters carrying homemade signs bearing messages such as “Israeli army is not for Jews.” Rows upon rows of chairs were set up on the camp grounds, where a large stage was adorned with banners in English and Hebrew bashing the Israeli government including “Zionism = Brutality” and “Forced draft into the immoral Israel Army is nothing but an attempt to uproot our Judaism.”
The veteran director of the camp, Rabbi David Rosenberg, opened the event, explaining to the children that the first Satmar Rebbe ZATZAL said that every generation is obligated to continue the fight against Amalek.August 14, 2017 7:11 pm at 7:11 pm in reply to: Should We View Satmar Growth and Anti Israel Indoctrination as Concern #1338873
Firstly, Especially as we read in the news of the crazy racists in Virginia that rallied against Jews and black people and anyone that is not a white protestant recently, of course I think its great when the numbers of Jews, especially frum Jews, grow. We need to rebuild. And most satmar yidden are wonderful fellow Jews and people.
My observation from seeing videos this year and last year of many hundreds of campers being indocitrinated to actually strongly protest in rallies against israel and the israeli defense forces in strong terms exactly as Neturei karts who openly join with moslems in anti Israel rallies.
As these numbers grow and as the ranks of moslems, and “progressives” grow as well the Pro Israel community seems to need a major growth spirt.
Indeed we have seen that now 1 of the 2 New York senators, Gilibrand, questions if Israel has a peace plan and if she will vote for the anti BDS bill in congress. Maybe being from Upstate NY she sees whats going on at Kiryas Yoel.
And regarding if they will ask if you were pro Israel. I think when the Gemara says what we will be asked – if you learnt Torah in set times, if you waited for the redemption, etc it DOES NOT say “Did you Kill?” Did you commit adultery?” Because that is OBVIOUSLY Wrong – Just as Betraying Millions of Jews, Chilul hashem and being Tifrosh from the Tsibur (to the degree of Endangering millions of them)August 14, 2017 7:11 pm at 7:11 pm in reply to: Should We View Satmar Growth and Anti Israel Indoctrination as Concern #1338974
a mamin So is it okay to call “tsionim” Amalek????? As it is a mitsvah to Eliminate Amalek!
Is Rabbi Lau, Chief Rabbi of Israel, Amalek? Are the Agudah members of the Knesset Amalek? Did the Palestinian that killed the grandfather and his 2 children recently in a yishuv kill 3 members of Amalek?August 14, 2017 1:15 pm at 1:15 pm in reply to: Should We View Satmar Growth and Anti Israel Indoctrination as Concern #1338336
yekke2 I did not know endangering millions of Jews in Erets Yisroel by showing politicians that together with Moslem Americans and anti semites there are many tens of thousands of Satmar – Neturei Karta to count on as anti Israel is “Political”.August 13, 2017 10:20 am at 10:20 am in reply to: Should We View Satmar Growth and Anti Israel Indoctrination as Concern #1337886
If You look at Videos in YESHIVAWORLD .COM you will see Satmar having Practice Anti Israel Demonstartions in Camp – Incouding on TISHA BAV!! (when it was SINAS CHINAM that destroyed the Bayis Shaini)
Many people happen to feel in the eyes of may chassidim they look at other frum as “Goyim”
In the article it claims they believe “tsionim” are AMALAIK. “tsionim” includes all soldiers – including the many thousands of frum! And millions of frum live and are physically protected by them in eretz yisroel where they are free to learn torah and daven and learn satmar! To say millions of YIDDEN are AMALYK is to say their Lives deserve to be eradicated! And INDEED in the video IT LOOKS LIKE SATMAR IS NETUREI KARTA!August 13, 2017 12:11 am at 12:11 am in reply to: Should We View Satmar Growth and Anti Israel Indoctrination as Concern #1337782
baruch hashem for the growth of jewish from,,,but sadly it is a warning to us that we need to think what to do for Klal Yisroel particularly in Erets Yisroel, 7 MILLION, including religious and secular. We need to somehow get the Message Across to Decent UnBrainwashed embers of Satmar that it is BAD to join with Murderous enemies of millions of Jews – with Jewish blood on their hands or lusts – to protest to elected officials or provide encouragement to them Against Israel who are surrounded by enemies seeking to kill all the Yidden there!
Secondly, as we see what seem to be thousands of children being indoctrinated – to bolster all our own selves to come out in defense of the Security needs of Israel!

Now we hear yet again of a stabbing attack in Jerusalem of a Charedi man by a Palestinian woman.
ColumbiaGrad The bill starts off with freeing BILLIONS OF DOLLARS to Iran, Who FInance Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah! It also Stops any US or Israeli plan to bomb Iranian facilities for at least 10 years.
After about 10 years Iran can then rush to create many nuclear weapons without a restriction. Why do you think so many werre against the deal?!?!?
RebYidd23 I am not sure of your background. Not everyone has wealthy parents or can have both parents working. In my case I am the only breadwinner and work a complete full day and try some part time as well. Do yu know why when somneone was found dead near a city the city elders needed to say their hands did not shed this blood?! BECAUSE THE COMMUNITY IS RESPONSABLE FOR ALL ITS MEMBERS – PARTICULARLY those that cant afford it. At the same time I must say there are many Great Very Praiseworthy fine YIdden who are very kind and helpful to so may. I hope one day I may be zoche to be a little as kind as they are. One fot eh great hallmarks of the Jewish community is our deep caring for each other. Mi KiAmcha Yisroel.
thinkingclearly – it would not be an avayrah if you mentioned which school(s) you senf your kids to. PLEEASE let us all know what wonderful place this is
Meno If the baord of ed GIVES FREE LUNCHES to financially strapped families in schools that qualify and the particular school Chooses instead to charge all parents for catered food – who do YOU blame???????
Meno – There should be available to qualifying financially distressed families FREE lunches in school from the Board of Ed – to Yeshivas also! But instead some charge ALL parents for CATERED FOOD. If the claim is board of ed food is BAD – does that mean the public schools give Bad food to most NYC kids????(I dont think so)
Now for a Brooklyn frum yeshiva in Flatbush I am charged $650 for the lunches for one child.
I know for Public schools there is FREE lunch.
How can we say every yeshiva is utilizing whatever aid IS available from the government to help frum parents carry the burden when for example there can be free lunch and we are charged $650 per child?!? The public school population is eating “horrible food”??? THey also seem healthier.
I dont understand??????????????June 21, 2017 5:53 pm at 5:53 pm in reply to: Israeli Frum Soldiers In Meah Shearim Shuls – Solution #1302064
Correction – such yeshiva bochurim that do wear t shirts and when they are not in yeshiva may wear and or daven in such, in a jacket or not, should go there to daven. It is MORE DISRESPECTFUL to be in shul and FIGHT others who just want to Daven then to Daven with a SHirt!
