After the Zionists murdered Dr. Yaakov Yisroel de Haan.December 27, 2012 1:47 am at 1:47 am in reply to: Jews protesting against a job fair! How low will they fall? #915849
That’s a lie and you don’t even believe what you just wrote.
And what if the winner gave 1000? How will they eat their nearly $1Mil loss?December 26, 2012 8:41 pm at 8:41 pm in reply to: Jews protesting against a job fair! How low will they fall? #915836
Great point, Wolf. And the Native Americans are granted a measure of self-rule and sovereignty from the U.S. So your point must be that the Chareidim should be granted self-rule and sovereignty from the zionists.
I could not agree with you more.
The Chareidim were there before the Zionists, and did not ask for zionist rule. In fact, they are on-record as protesting the pending zionist takeover of the Holy Land. Aside from their anti-zionist stance being a well-known historical fact and the public record, this can easily be verified with pre-’48 documentation they filed with the United Nations (and is available on the U.N. website.)
The Chareidim were there first and did not seek or wish zionist rule. They ought to be exempt from it. Despite any infrastructure enhancements the government created on their own initiative.December 26, 2012 5:13 pm at 5:13 pm in reply to: Jews protesting against a job fair!

The chareidim lived in Eretz Yisroel before the zionists came.
Usually people disturbed by others don’t confront the person.
What does the Gemora say about him? And did the church censors force us to edit it out of the Gemora?December 26, 2012 1:49 pm at 1:49 pm in reply to: Jews protesting against a job fair! How low will they fall? #915817
The famous Ran in Nedarim says dina dmalchusa does not apply in Eretz Yisroel.
Wolf: That depends whether you hold of the Orthodox kratsmich or the Catholic kratsmich.
Daven for him.
That is not the case, jmh. The vast vast majority of yeshivaleit and kolleleit are serious learners and want to remain in the Beis Medrash despite other opportunities.December 24, 2012 4:38 pm at 4:38 pm in reply to: Jews protesting against a job fair! How low will they fall? #915756
+1 Derech HaMelech
Is there anything objectionable for a ffb to seek a shidduch exclusively with a ffb? (Similar, perhaps, to how a rov might seek shidduchim for his children exclusively with other families in the rabbanus.)
Business perspective indeed explains everything you correctly critique. If anti-semitism sells, it will be published.
WIY: Which other “rabbanim”? Names, please. Cause that ain’t the truth.
Better than an Ivrit counter-culture telaviv night-club.
Being suspicious that one takes precautions is a lower level of suspicion than judicial conviction and punishment under Jewish law.
chalila: There are no victims. Not the first or the imaginary others.
Remember that the halacha is that we only execute a murderer who received a warning beforehand that he acknowledged.
Lacking that vital condition Beis Din does not execute him.
akuperma: Except that in this chess game real people are getting killed.
What about Levi Aron?December 21, 2012 5:37 pm at 5:37 pm in reply to: Verifying Validity of a "Get" Before Marrying a Divorcee #914600
WolfishMusings: It is far from being a pointless argument. Rav Elyashev ruled State “Get Laws” to potentially render a divorce to be a get meusa. (Others might disagree, but most people I think would rather not marry someone that even some major poskim will consider their future children to be mamzeirim. Who would want to have their children considered kosher by their own posek but mamzeirim by other poskei hador???)
Because one is true while the other isn’t true.
See what Rav Schwab zt’l, rov of RSRH’s Kehilla, said about MO itself. It’s published in his Seforim.
Virtually all Chareidi Rabbonim (and hamon hoam) support Republicans, especially in national elections.
RSRH and TIDE are the polar opposite of MO and TuM. See what Rav Schwab, rov of RSRH’s TIDE Kehilla, said about MO and TuM.
This horrible attitude is exactly the problem. You should exactly be dressing up when at home alone with only him and NOT when going out in public.December 20, 2012 3:45 pm at 3:45 pm in reply to: A bit bothered by some advertisements in frum publications #1009210
zsdad: Absolutely correct. It is much much better to give tzedaka without having your name on the building.December 19, 2012 8:45 pm at 8:45 pm in reply to: A bit bothered by some advertisements in frum publications #1009198
are we done fixing ourselves, that we have to go tell someone else what he has to fix?
It is our duty as Jews to spiritually help and correct others.
in fact, when you think of all the Torah sources related to this, you have the halacha of giving tzedaka to the rich man to let him live according to his previous lifestyle, you have R’ Yehuda Hanassi who was known to be fabulously wealthy, and you have the idea of hiddur mitzva.
You gotta be kidding. 1) We would not give $40,000 tzedaka so a formerly rich man can buy the Rolex he is used to wearing. 2) Rav Yehuda Hanassi was wealthy but very far removed from ostentatious. 3) A Rolex is a “hiddur mitzvah”??? Surely you jest.
Syag: Not sure your point, but moi aussi is correct that zk was ayc’d. (Like that term? Kinda like a judicial nominee getting “borked”.) Was a total replay of the ayc saga.
Syag: The comparison of the two cases moi made in his first paragraph is spot on.December 19, 2012 3:42 am at 3:42 am in reply to: A bit bothered by some advertisements in frum publications #1009176
CV: What IS the reason? Gaaiva.December 19, 2012 2:11 am at 2:11 am in reply to: A bit bothered by some advertisements in frum publications #1009172
CV: We don’t need to. But he’ll naturally be angered that his gaaividik watch that he spent a fortune on was one-upped by a cheap imitation that few can tell any difference between. Don’t wear the imitation to anger him; but be advised that’ll be his likely reaction.December 18, 2012 11:46 pm at 11:46 pm in reply to: A bit bothered by some advertisements in frum publications #1009166
Wear a fake Rolex that cost $100 and that looks real and like it cost $40,000. Then you’ll make the rich guy with the real watch angry.
What DOES Emunas Chachomim mean to you?December 18, 2012 8:38 pm at 8:38 pm in reply to: A bit bothered by some advertisements in frum publications #1009158
Oomis: Hashem takes away tzadikim from the world as punishment for the sins of non-tzadikim. So we see that innocent people are punished for the aveiros of others.
And for every teacher. And school staff. Even the janitor.
Heck, even the students.December 16, 2012 11:46 pm at 11:46 pm in reply to: WAKE UP!! Our Yeshivas & Schools Are Open To The Public!! #913718
Hello! The school on Connecticut had all the security precautions… buzzers, intercoms, locked doors, etc.
The madman just shot his way in, defeating all the protections!!!
DY: Even according to the meforshims on zivugs, they say someone’s rightful zivug can be lost for whatever reasons.
Dr. Lamm is still Chancellor Emeritus at YU. Why has he not lost his job now that this came to light? He failed to report two child molestors he was aware of while they were committing their heinous crimes on children in YU, to the police authorities.
By the way, five new students have now come out and said they too were abused.
DY: Are you trying to say that a person does not have a zivug (or that a zivug is not set before birth)?December 16, 2012 6:13 am at 6:13 am in reply to: Does a Divorce indicate a Family lacked Shalom Bayis? #913362
The Gemora and Shulchan Aruch talks about divorcing a wife for burning dinner or even finding a prettier wife, examples that may be non shalom Bahia issues.
Being Adam LMakom is not less severe than bein adam lchaveiro.December 14, 2012 3:34 pm at 3:34 pm in reply to: Does a Divorce indicate a Family lacked Shalom Bayis? #913350
DaasYochid: Those halachicly required divorces you are referring to are generally speaking, too, an indication of a lack of sholom bayis.
BaalHabooze: How much is “full tuition”? The list price some schools publish only expecting a gvir to pay? If not, how much?
Extremely new phenominon? Not by a long shot. This is a very old issue that never changed. Much of the MO population from the pre-1950s are the bedrock of the Conservative movement as well as much of the completely unaffiliated and assimilated American Jews.
Just as fitting for him to have peyos.
far east: The answer to your question to me is essentially what popa replied. We agree (for example) that the “conservatives” are not a valid approach to yiddishkeit. You feel that the approaches you are referring to are acceptable. We don’t.
