You can learn some Yiddish. It’ll make you more different than the goyim, which is a good thing.
I stand up and salute you, msseeker!
Everything is directed from above. It is no coincidence that facebook’s IPO flopped within days of the Asifa.
In Orange County, California, the sewage water is filtered back into drinking water that is sent to the tap. Imagine removing the filters. That is unfiltered internet. Sending the water flushed down the toilet directly to your kitchen sink to drink unfiltered.
You’re thinking since it was 2/3 Chasidish 1/3 Litvish you define it as a Chasidish event. But in fact that is a fair breakdown of the frum demographics today. There are more than double the number of chasidim than their are litvaks and other Orthodox. Simply due to the long-standing mathematics of their respective birth rates. Thus, in fact, it was a broad and representitive representation of the Torah world.
Hebrewbooks and the like would be approved by the filter.
Halevei everyone did as you. The ones who don’t is whom I addressed earlier.
Rav’s Ahron Schechter, Ahron Feldman, Elya Brudny, Harari Rafael, Matisyahu Solomon, Malkiel Kotler, etc are Chasidish?
Nope, Yiddish will be present in a prominent fashion at the siyum. If that doesn’t suit you, you are of course free to make your own siyum with 9 of your friends at home.
Rav Chaim Kanievsky, Rav Kotler, Rav Solomon, Rav Ahron Feldman, Rav Ahron Schechter, Rav Harari Rafael, and many other Gedolim participated in the psak.
David, I take it a “filthy” magazine has a place on your coffee table. It goes without saying that you, of course, skip the inappropriate pages.
How do you apply this S”A in your life?
Sam, you’re suggesting the S”A be disregarded here?
Hello99: 1. If the owner of the air rights is diferent than the owner of the property rights, if the owner of the air rights dies without transfering its ownership, who then owns those air rights? 2. How much above the property does the property owners rights end and the air rights owners begin? 3. How can an airplane trespass the airspace of all the property owners over which it flies?
Really, how are they “different”?
The Shulchan Aruch [91-6] writes that it is the way of chachomim and their students to daven only when they are wearing a jacket. The Kaf Hachayim [91-26] writes that since all people would wear a jacket when meeting with a king, one should do so during tefillah.
So how is it that sometimes certain people don’t wear a jacket by davening (especially Shachris, with no jacket under the talis — but it occurs too frequently even by other tefilos).
Who says I need a Heter?
Isn’t that the psak of the poskim (Rav Chaim Kanievsky, Rav Shmuel Wosner, et al)
Didn’t they also say you need a heter to even have internet with a filter?
Certainly for anyone here, the first course of business is to speak to your mora d’asra or posek and ask him what kind of internet access you may or may not have. The second course of action would be to immediately implement his directives.
When Moshiach comes all the cholim will be healed from their sicknesses IY”H.

Blacklisting is ineffective since you will never be able to comprehensively block all inappropriate sites by maintaining a blacklist. You need to ONLY allow access to pre-approved sites, that were verified as kosher, on a white list.
As far as filtering on the personal computer versus filtering on the provider level, filtering on the provider level is certainly preferable and far more effective. In addition to it being much more difficult to bypass the filter, you need to consider the fact that if you are only filtering directly on your computer that you yourself can bypass the filter with the filters administrative password. Plus, you can hookup a different laptop or tablet to your internet router or wireless connection, thus bypassing the filter. And, finally, a provider-level filter has the additional protection that you must go through a third-party to request any bypassing or adding additional sites to the approved list.
One other vital protection is to insure you have setup that a third-party, preferably a Rov or friend who will keep on top of you, receives an automatic periodic e-mailed list of all the websites that anyone on your computer went to.
Anyone failing to take these basic precautions is akin to giving matches to a 3-year old to play with unattended.
apushatayid: In simple English, the Rov was saying that 99% of the time they are both at fault, and only 1% (i.e. rarely) of the time is it only the fault of one of the parties.
popa: The question was about “feel threatened”, not actually threatened. Your example is of an actual threat.
You can legally attack someone, in any state, just because you feel threatened by her, even if she didn’t do anything to you?
It’s typically an issue of the wife picking up additional weight with each pregnancy, and keeping it thereafter.
What it means is that she will have much more of an inclination to be the more passive one in the relationship if someone would do this.
I’m glad you’ve finally come around to this point. Mochoh timche suggested something along similar lines above, and yet was put down for that. Earlier it was insinuated that the Seforim were somehow wrong based on folks here’s personal svaras. I don’t see anyone above suggesting that this remedy has a 100% ironclad effectiveness, as you suggest was suggested.
Sorry, I can only suggest ones with unrefined, bad boys.
Where can you find an online 100 year Jewish calendar?
How big is Stolin?
TCG: +1 on Kahane.
Does Artscroll offer such a sefer? I’d think an English sefer would be most suitable.
Personal preference. Nothing else.
There’s no such “minhag” in Judaism.
I know someone who never flew on an airplane in her life, due to fear of air travel.
Not flying makes her feel more secure. Zehu.
I’m so glad you are being honest about this issue!
Sheep: what’s a Shmaatsa?
yichusdik: That all sounds so nice to put your feelings, somehow, into what Tannaim said. Yet their still your feelings that you are trying to justify by dreying them into what how you’d like to interpert a Tanna. You could argue against any Rashi, Rambam, or anyone for that matter, without any support from any Amora, Rishon, Achron, etc by simply saying the authorities you dont like are somehow going against a Tanna. Yet, it is still you against the authorities, unless you bring another authority to support your position.
So who disagrees with this Medrash Talpiot and the other Acronim above, other than the Chachmei HaCR, that you can directly cite rather than trying to drey that the Achronm are going against the Tannaim without any authority agreeing with you vs the Achronim?
Beating someone on account of his race is no worse than beating someone on account of his wealth.
Clearly Rav Eliyahu HaKohen, and all the other Achronim who approvingly cite this, agree with this remedy.
I sincerely doubt any of us here in the CR are anywhere near any of their (Medrash Talpiot, Nitai Gavriel, Shulchan HaEzer) levels, to argue with them.
Florida law allows him to shoot to kill in self-defense (even if his life wasnt in danger.)April 12, 2012 3:36 pm at 3:36 pm in reply to: Shemone Esrei: Putting Feet Together and Davening Quietly #871949
Your feet should be lined up and touching each other when saying Shemone Esrei.
If you realize in middle that you have to restart Shemone Esrei, I would think you immediately stop in middle of whatever brocho you are in midst of and start from the beginning of Shemone Esrei. It would seem that to finish the brocho would be a brocho l’vatala.
Sam2: The Tzitz Eliezer, and poskim of his caliber, have the right to make certain svaras that *we* (as in us CR simpletons) do not have a right to.
Depends how you define young. A man, of any age, has a mitzvah (or obligation) to have children and to marry a woman capable of bearing a child.
Give it up, shuli. He’s gonna be much stronger than you and get you before you know what hit you. Then you’ll be completely under his thumb for the rest of your life.
” Mishna and Zohar are the cutoff line for enough kedusha to make it possible to imbibe from it just by reading the words.”
Says who? Who decided that is the cutoff line?
You have a heter if going to work, since you need parnassa. That doesnt apply to going to stadiums.
Also, you are not sitting next to these profane people for three hours on the D or F train. And you can usually move if there is a problem. Its not half as bad on a train as sitting among beer-guzzling crazed sports fans.
The fans in the stands engaging in profanity and dressed pritzusdik.
