How can anyone ever even think omer muttar on mixed swimming?? Certainly anyone engages in that activity knows he is sinful and couldn’t care less. Why would he think that is muttar but chazzer is assur? The only difference is he has a much greater taiva to swim with girls (or boys) than to eat pig.

Where does violating a rabbinical decree, that isn’t a drabonon and isn’t even universally accepted, fit in? i.e. Cherem Rabbeinu Gershom isn’t a drabonon (it was not instituted by Chazal) and wasn’t universally mekabel by all of klal yisroel. So if someone from a community that had accepted the cherem violates it, what aveira — if any — has he transgressed?
Dont be such an anti-semite. Would you rather the welfare dollars go to single welfare queens living in the hood?

Sam, no inherent issur for a man to dance with his wife in public?!
If makes the nochorim envious. And that leads to no good.
Some folks are uncomfortable being asked for tzedaka anytime. Its still a mitzva to ask them for tzedaka.
These bochorim look at girls/women as little as possible, and won’t be checking out their ring-finger.
Tzedaka is a mitzvah that isn’t pushed aside by a date.

Yes, collecting tzedaka is an even bigger mitzva than giving tzedaka. And we all know how great a mitzva it is to give tzedaka. So we can only begin to imagine the greatness of the mitzva of collecting tzedaka.
Collecting tzedaka by bochorim should be further encouraged, especially among bochorim who have not yet had the great zchus of collecting tzedaka.March 30, 2012 3:41 pm at 3:41 pm in reply to: Are these young women nuts, selfish, out of it or something else? #865108

This is unusual, as you yourself said that usually they acknowledge your favor.
My issue is with complainers who always have complaints against people. Especially to complain about people who are frummer than themselves.
Go to civilized NYC, and let your heart enjoy NY’s Krispy Kreme’s.

Thank You for standing up for Kovod HaTorah.
