my grandfather used to play with him and run around in shul together with him – they were best friends.
My great grandfather was the Chazzan in the (father) Mattesdorfer’s shul. The “Matesdofa Roof” only allowed one person to daven there Yomim Noraim – my great grandfather – cuz he was the only one in America that knew the right ‘Nisuch’May 26, 2022 4:09 pm at 4:09 pm in reply to: Every Yids a safek mamzer #2091362

in lakewood, the chassidim say tachnun even if it’s an hour after the first shkiyah.May 24, 2022 11:55 am at 11:55 am in reply to: CAN WE TAKE A TIME MACHINE TO THE PAST OR FUTURE? #2090331
Time is very relative. It is a creation – just like space and matter.
Just like we can manipulate space and matter, we should be able to manipulate time as well.
All of creation is contained in the first particle of light, Time, space and matter.
There are parts of the universe today that are from a bygone past – and there are parts of the universe today that are part of a future era.
Time and space go together. As time goes on, we enter a different space.
To time travel, all we have to do is travel to that space.

@sensibleyid: we dont pasken like rebbi that tchelis is me’acev.
The askenazi rishonim pasken like Rava that all minim are d’raysa, but the Sphardi rishonim pasken like R Nachman and Tana Dbei R Yshmael that only Wool and Linen are D’oraysa.
(FYI, the Gaon wore Linen – not cotton, big difference! because his other undergarments were linen and he didnt want shaatnez – but linen is also d’oraysa for sure;
but Rabenu Tam held wearing linen is Assur mdrabanan because might wear tchelis (wool) on it on a nighttime garment – which wont be doche the lav of shaatnez)May 10, 2022 4:07 pm at 4:07 pm in reply to: eretz yisreal #2085280

Doing your best is doing his best to compare this Corona which really was a hoax, as we found out years later – but we knew all along.
big difference, though, a war cant be staged – an invisible spiritual fictional virus – who can know if it’s real????April 8, 2022 1:29 pm at 1:29 pm in reply to: Is there any difference between a religion and a cult? #2076917
and the truth is that ALL MAN MADE religions started as cults 100%
The ONLY difference between one and the other is that G-D HAS a true WILL –
once you find that TRUE WILL – you will know the difference between man made CULTS which became respected religions over time – and the true WILL of G-D will can AND will have major consequences for those who don’t follow it (if they are supposed to…..)
And while there SHOULD be discussion about the what the TRUE will is, there should NOT be discussion about if it matters or not, once it is proven to be true.April 8, 2022 1:28 pm at 1:28 pm in reply to: Is there any difference between a religion and a cult? #2076916
@Yserbius123 and Reb Eliezer,
to say that religion doesn’t have consequences is LITTERALLY the dumbest thing you could say:
throughout history ALL religions, including Judaism had – and WILL have soon – MAJOR consequences for dissenters – something a lot of ppl here might not be so happy aboutApril 6, 2022 10:21 am at 10:21 am in reply to: Is there any difference between a religion and a cult? #2076117
ATHIESTS are just as religious as anyone else – they are polytheists %100.
They worship the gods of Creation – and their belief system is just as religious as everyone else.
just as radical as everyone else.
Dont try to make it sound like they arent religious – that is PROPAGANDA!!March 28, 2022 1:29 pm at 1:29 pm in reply to: BACK PEYOS OR FRONT PEYOS? #2073091
@inquisitive girl :
the jews in eastern europe spoke a Germanic language – not a slavic one (like the ppl in eastern europe)!
be MORE inquisitive and actually study history and language.
no they wore long coats cuz that is what everyone wore back then – a robe and turban became a long coat and fur hat. (im doing good btw)March 25, 2022 10:32 am at 10:32 am in reply to: BACK PEYOS OR FRONT PEYOS? #2072359
btw, many jews had long peyos way before chasidim – just like jews wore long coats and spoke yiddish way before them. in fact, most of what we “call” chasidish today, is actually what mot jews had all along. (so “chasidish” is actually reffering to something else entirely)
The yeminite jews have had peyos for a long time, and the LITVAKS and graniks (cant get any less chasidish than that) had peyos and STILL have peyos. it was the modern yeshivas in the 1800′ that took it all off.
Thank You for the history lesson!December 13, 2021 4:06 pm at 4:06 pm in reply to: taanit notzrim #2041217
All goyim had holidays on Sunday which is for the god Sun (the Shamash of the heavens and Son of all powers). Gm avoda zara first perek. the Christians moved sabath to sunday to appease the goyim.
The original girsa was like maharsha, “gelilim”, but later ppl changed to notzrim cuz they thought the censors changed, but didnt. thats why we have it.December 1, 2021 12:38 pm at 12:38 pm in reply to: Keeping my last name when married #2036711

The principle reb jacobowitz is amazing. There’s being open houses in 3 places tooOctober 5, 2021 9:46 am at 9:46 am in reply to: Kayin builds a city #2012417
Obviously, we all know that lemech killed kayin, if you look in Koheleth Rabbah 6:3 it only says that the mabul washed away his body so he didnt have kvurahOctober 4, 2021 5:06 pm at 5:06 pm in reply to: Kayin builds a city #2012220
You guys are all forgetting that Kayin lived hundreds of years and he probably built this city hundreds of years later, at a point that they were thousands of people around. Remember, each person “Vyoled banim ubanos” there were TONZ of people by then.October 4, 2021 5:06 pm at 5:06 pm in reply to: Kayin builds a city #2012222
this was HUNDREDS of years later and by then there were TONZ of people around for cities.
