I thought the boy/girl gets final sign-off on the shidduch.
One gift on the first night. Are there really people who got a gift every night?
Yussel: What a sad existence you must lead. I don’t care about money or status symbols and I never will. Are you seriously saying that money is the deciding factor for you when choosing a partner for you and a mother to your children? How pathetic.
Women have been driving since horseless carriages were invented. Since when was driving considered to be a “mans job”? I don’t understand this whole issue, and noones yet given an explanation beyond “some rabbanim forbid it”. Noones managed to yet explain how exactly it is untzniyus.
As far as I see it, this is chumros gone wild. I’m not even going to be one of those who commend the women who dont drive. It seems silly to me.
Also, for those saying the “heimish” refers to a specific group or haskafah, what does it mean then when I visit a heimish bakery and eat some heimish kugel?
I don’t understand how it could be a problem talking to people here? The issur is getting too close and crossing the line of tzniyus with a woman. This is an anonymous webforum. There’s no pictures or even avatars. There is no issur of sending a woman an email either.
Seems everyone has their own idea then…
dont have internet: Does that mean Heimish people cannot also be Yeshivish?
Cantoresq: What kind of identity theft do you think could happen from saying what city you live in?
People have been made too scared by the media.
I don’t have any specific affiliation. I daven wherever and I do what I do.
noitallmr: Dunno. I don’t own one, I’ve just tried it out at the Apple Store.
jphone: It works just fine as a phone. Whats the question?
teenager: That does seem very wrong. How old are these men?
jewishfeminist02: I agree, a child of seven shouldnt be playing a wrestling game. But give him a sport, puzzle or adventure game and thats time well spent.

anon: Yes? You just quoted me twice.
noitallmr: The newest and most realistic game to date is Far Cry 2, which was just released, Here’s a screenshot: http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm60/XzN-Staff/Far_Cry_2_Pics_46-1.jpg
Incredible graphics, but does it look like it could actually be a photograph?
But thats not the point.
Even the most realistic video games are still obviously cartoonish. They don’t look like real life scenes. I’d rather my kids play violent games than watch movies.
What I can’t ever understand is the tendency of some parents to consider a movie “kosher” if it contains shooting and violence, as long as it doesnt contain any immorality.
jphone: You type the numbers on the touchscreen and hit send. There’s no real keypad, everything just on the touch screen.
They don’t. You can call it bittul torah, but they don’t create an inclination to violence. They may bring out violent tendencies that already existed, but 20+ years of violent games being played by kids all over the world has pretty much disproven any knee-jerk reaction to try and claim that playing violent games causes kids to become violent.
Frankly, I think kids should play games rather than watch TV and stuff. I learned alot from games growing up, problem solving skills, logical thinking and the like. A good adventure or rpg game provides hours of wholesome entertainment.
Now I expect to be drowned out in a sea of people telling me I’m wrong with no real proof or reason.
Domestic or international, I always book online through Travelocity, Expedia and the like.November 24, 2008 1:11 pm at 1:11 pm in reply to: A mitzvah for an aveira? or at someone else’s expense? #626721
There’s nothing wrong with accidentally touching a woman on a crowded bus. He should have given her his seat. To think that its better an old woman should stand on a bus or train than a bochur should rub shoulders with a woman is ludicrous.
000646: Since when did logic get involved with religion? If you believe the Torah is emes, then you fit logic to agree with that. There’s a famous saying: “If you would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things.”
