getzel: +1. Beautiful OP.
I’ve seen some shuls create a side minyan for a second chiyuv, while others hold one larger minyan is most appropriate.
147: You didn’t mention the equivalent applies to those that leave early (i.e. prior to the completion of Aleinu.)
Oberlander is neither Chasidish nor Litvish but rather their own minhagim. The Chasam Sofer is probably the most well-known from the Oberlanders.
Amount of people who learn Torah? Are you kidding? Much less than ONE PERCENT of Jews learn Torah full-time.
yichusdik: Yes they may make a mistake. But they are greater than us. And if you or I think a godol made a mistake, it is probably you and I who are in fact mistaken, and not the godol. So don’t feel free to point out their “mistakes”, since you are much much more likely to be the mistaken one.February 24, 2012 4:24 pm at 4:24 pm in reply to: New news story- OTD Lakewood woman with 4 kids wants custody #857258
000646: A B”D is most certainly in its right to deny a get or use it as leverage, depending on the circumstances as I described above. Indeed, contrary to your feelings, halacha does not allow a wife to demand a get-on-demand whenever she feels like it, with or without cause. It needs to be halachicly justified. And if she refuses to fulfil her halachic duties, the B”D can, and justifiable does, withhold the get.
Wolf: The Kuzari doesn’t need you to find reason for him to “be excused”.
HaLeiVi: Which ones did the Arizal reveal? Did his knowledge of them come through Ruach Hakodesh or another mean?
usa: How much do they charge for a ticket, and how much cheaper are they than their competition?
Thank you, Goq. That is a useful way of finding what I asked about (although much less efficient than if an actual alert was made when someone replied.)
All gas stations sell the same regulated quality gasoline, I believe.
yitayningwut: Those areas were either Chasidish or Oberlander. Somehow I got the impression you were more on the Litvish side of things.February 24, 2012 10:47 am at 10:47 am in reply to: New news story- OTD Lakewood woman with 4 kids wants custody #857254
000646, If she is discarding halacha and is using secular courts in non-accordance with halacha to, say, deny her husband visitation to his children, then the B”D has the right to withhold her get until she stops using the secular courts to go end-run halacha and the rulings of the Jewish Court. If she end-runs the Jewish Court, she has no leg or basis to stand on to insist the beis din facilitate a get for her — which is probably to only effective levarage the B”D has to get her to comply with halacha (which in the example she is denying child visitation to her husband by using th goyish courts). Once she gets her get she can, and by her actions has made clear she will, spit in B”D and halacha’s face regarding her halachic obligations, after she got her halachic needs (i.e. a get) facilitated by the Jewish Court.
Has Rabi Akiva’s kever (and the kevorim of other Tannaim) been marked, and known to Klal Yisroel where it is, from the time of his petira 1,500 years ago until today?
There is a well-known story of the western visitor who asked an elderly citizen of Mukachevo in Ruthenia (Carpathia) about his career. Born in Hungary, was the reply; then apprenticed in Czechoslovakia; saw war service in Hungary; married in the Soviet Union; and now retired in Ukraine. “You’re a much-travelled man” observes the stranger. “No, I’ve lived in this house all my life.”
Even most secular historians credit the seven day week to the Jews.February 24, 2012 12:43 am at 12:43 am in reply to: New news story- OTD Lakewood woman with 4 kids wants custody #857247
000646: One example is relatively recently a Brooklyn Family Court judge was arrested and charged with taking bribes and deciding custody based on bribes. He was busted; imagine how many are still getting away with it and other travesties against justice.
If a party to a case discards Jewish Law, he or she should not expect a Jewish Court to facilitate his or her Jewish Court needs, such as getting a get. This has nothing to do with children.
The Chasam Sofer and the Chofetz Chaim had separate seating by simchas. The CC didn’t have separate seating in his home with his wife – that is what your story is about, not a simcha event.
Neither the CS nor the CC were Chasidish.February 23, 2012 9:03 pm at 9:03 pm in reply to: New news story- OTD Lakewood woman with 4 kids wants custody #857238
000646: As they very well should. Opposing a psak in secular court (or choosing a secular court to arbitrate as opposed to beis din) is strictly against Jewish Law, as you very well know (assuming you are an Orthodox Jew). As such, a beis din is completely within its right, legally and morally and ethically, to use communal pressure to encourage someone to adhere to halacha. (And applying such pressure is completely within the secular law of the land.)February 23, 2012 6:50 pm at 6:50 pm in reply to: New news story- OTD Lakewood woman with 4 kids wants custody #857232
000646: American courts are as corrupt as they get. Whatever problems may exist in beis din, they are thousands of times worse in secular court.
Furthermore, if the wife tries to discard the Torah and halacha in using arkaos (secular court) against halacha to seek more favorable treatment in custody and asset distribution issues, the beis din would be correct to advise her to also try to get her “get” issued by a secular court. Since if she refuses to use beis din when she is halachicly required to for money and custody issues, beis din in turn will not be at her service in getting a “get” for her. She shouldn’t think that when it suits her needs she can choose to demand beis din help her get a halachic get, when at the same time she refuses follow halacha in other areas beis din has halachic jurisdiction.
If not being a druggie or drunk is the definition of success by the secular, soliek,I wish such a pinnacle of “success” upon all my enemies.
Can we get an alert when someone replies to a comment we made? (Is there already somewhere you can check if anyone replied to your comment?)
Those that changed their Nusach, what was their halachic basis to change their families minhag?
DaasYochid: I overread one of your comments. Please disregard/strike my reference to you. But otherwise the point of my comment remains.
yitay: Minimally you would need to inquire of your guests if they can eat off your keilim, even if the food being served at the time is otherwise up to their standards.
yitay: Most people couldn’t eat in your house or from your keilim as a result of your stance on kashrus, as DaasYochid said about himself earlier in this thread, and as you acknowledged in the closing of your last post. Does that give you any reason for pause or concern?
Do the gedolim admit visitors when they are visiting the United States?
I think Terri Kalker’s regular rate, like almost everyone else, is $250.
Nechama, Litvaks and Yeshivish folks have a rebbe.
Does Rabbi Schachter have a basis in Shulchan Aruch to decide unilaterally without a duly constituted beit din that someone is encouraging or assisting a m’sarev?
Reading your OP, am I understanding that this is the first time in 7 years that he acted physically (seriously) on one of the children?
I agree with your approach in seeking your Rov in helping with this situation.
No one ever called it modern. Pretty standard yeshivish and some chasidish.
A ‘snooker’ table (measuring 8 metres by 4m) with 4 ‘pockets’ (measuring 0.5m and placed at diagonal slants in all 4 corners) contains 10 balls (each with a diameter of 0.25m) placed at the following coords:
…and red balls…
1m,5m… 2m,5m… 3m,5m
1m,6m… 2m,6m… 3m,6m
1m,7m… 2m,7m… 3m,7m
The white ball is then shot at a particular angle from 0 to 360 degrees (0 being north, and going clockwise).
Just to make it clear, a ball is ‘potted’ if at least half of the ball is in area of the ‘pocket’
Assuming the balls travel indefinitely (i.e. no loss of energy via friction, air resistance or collisions), answer the following:
a: What exact angle/s should you choose to ensure that all the balls are potted the quickest?
b: What is the minimum amount of contacts the balls can make with each other before they are all knocked in?
c: Same as b, except that each ball – just before it is knocked in – must not have hit the white ball on its previous contact (must be a red instead of course).
d: What proportion of angles will leave the white ball the last on the table to be potted?
