    We should all have extra kavanah when we light the Shabbos candles, and daven for our Yiden.

    Most of my weddings are in Brooklyn in the Ateres halls. That’s what I am referring to.
    How about this: We in this forum can do something. Sometimes, it only takes one person to change things. Maybe when we go to a vort, , we can gently suggest to the baal simcha that when they
    book the music they might want to put in a clause not to have it too loud. If we keep doing that, it might change things. We can each tell our friends of this idea and it might become popular.

    In other words, instead of talking, let’s all take action. Let’s try it and see what happens.

    To apushatay, if you stand next to the band, the music goes into the chest.

    There have been some good suggestions to my inquiry. We should add a clause when booking a band.
    I would like to request that one man bands need not be so high and screechy. Sometimes they are louder than 5 man bands.

    I am thinking of keeping cotton balls in my bag when I go to weddings. Then, next time I see a baby in middle of the loud music, I can offer the mother two cotton balls for the baby’s ears.
    Maybe, after a while this will take off.

    If any branches come into your backyard, I believe you are allowed to cut them. My neighbor’s branches
    used to come into my backyard and they were blocking the Succah, so after asking permission of the neighbor I had them trimmed,. You would have to call a tree guy and pay over $100 but it might be worth it for you, for menuchas hanefesh. We Yiden are not supposed to harbor enmity. When we have a problem with someone, we need to try to work it out, especially now in Elul.

    I hear that the movie is about a father not being able to raise his son because he is single. The son has to live with family. This may true by certain Chasidim, but it’s not so by most Yiden. The goyim will think all
    Yiden are this way. I don’t feel this depicts us in good way.

    I am certain it’s a good movie. I had seen Menashe himself on some you tube clips and he was quite funny.
    My issue is that it’s playing in movie theaters, thus drawing Chasidim to go to the theatre. If this would play in heimish venues, just for our people, it would be much better. In case anyone is interested, last week’s Jewish Press had an interesting article about the movie.
