    Seven Mile Market and the owners give enormous amounts of support to Baltimore Jewish institutions and individuals in need and has done so for decades.
    And they don’t have to asked for assistance, they are loyal partners of the community and know the community well.
    It is unlikely that any interloper kosher supermarket will come anywhere near to Seven Mile Market’s commitment.
    For this alone, Seven Mile Market should be supported exclusively by the Baltimore Jewish population.

    The intermarriage rate in the USA among Jews is over 60%; this includes Orthodox. Among the non Orthodox alone, the rate is over 70%. When you remove the Orthodox from the numbers, at least 35% of the non-Orthodox Jewish population are not Jewish since half are female. When factoring in other considerations, the proportions are much higher.

    Yiddish is holy to us who are fortunate to understand or speak this beautiful shprach of the g’dolim. It is torturous for those of you who don’t.

    Actually, I was told by a Rav in the name of a highly respected Rosh Yeshiva and Posek that themed mishloach manos are stupid and, therefore, Assur to give.

    Moderator-29, a while ago, I was pretty active in the Coffee Room and had lots of deletions. So I had to figure out how to bury my politically incorrect messages in pareve posts.

    You do not fulfil the mitzvah of mishloach manos when you give a simple niggardly mishloach manos to a choshuve person, such as myself. It’s a turn off. Some will re-gift but when I get one of those, it goes right into the garbage.

    It also depends on your priorities in Kashrus; and there are conflicting types of hashgachos.
    For instance, some food items are Yoshon but not Cholov Yisroel or Pas Yisroel.
    While other food items are Cholov Yisroel or Pas Yisroel but not Yoshon.
    Some foods are Glatt, but not as reliable as the non-Glatt alternative.
    Other hashgachos rely on the oven light for Pas Yisroel or a timed ignition while some want a live person to light the fire. Some will rely on a camera to act as a mashgiach while others want a live person.
    M’ikor hadin, based on percentages, reading the ingredient content on the wrapper or box is good enough. I heard this from a Torah giant many years ago.
    I miss the good times when that’s all we had to do.

    It is no coincidence that Cuomo visited the Satmer and Square Rebbes before the November elections while the edicts came from Cuomo after the elections. Very sneaky. Did he get the votes he was looking for from these communities? if he did, it seems the chasidic leaders did a terrible job.

    YTV needed someone in the royal family as Rosh Yeshiva in order to restore its status among the “top” echelon. That is why certain individuals and Yeshivas will never be included and accepted, no matter how qualified or learned, as the minimum requirements are not there.

    Goyim in Israel who speak modern Hebrew make up about 25% of the Israel’s population, so it does not qualify. Hardly any goyim speak Yiddish.

    As you are aware, a large portion of the Israeli population are goyim and they speak Hebrew. This takes Hebrew out of the holy language rule.

    cherrybim

    All of our wedding customs are original and copied by the goyim, including, as per the Talmud, the throwing of rice or grain at the Choson and Kallah.
    The only exception is when the Choson and Kallah come into the hall together. Our current custom is entirely fake and meant to be politically correct to appease the more modern among us and it distorts the emes way of starting out in a new marriage together.
    It had been the custom for Yidden going all the way back, that the Choson walks into the hall handcuffed to the Kallah to show everyone in attendance who is really boss. I feel there would be far fewer problems if we reverted back to this custom as the Kallah would understand early on her place in the marriage.

    No one actually knows the shape of the original menorah nor would that shape apply to the Chanukah menoras we use. In fact, the Chanukah menorah is a relatively modern invention of convenience to keep the lights in an orderly separate group. The menorah is not required to fulfill the mitzvah of lighting Chanukah candles; wax or oil.

    Orthodox Jews are held and should be held to a higher standard. Torah Jews broadcast to the world that are we are the chosen people and on a higher level than others so the goyim make sure we keep to our commitments.
    And, who is fooling who? We have been through this many times before in different situations. And when found guilty, we Orthodox receive the highest penalties available; again because the goyim hold us to what the Torah demands of us.
    The vast majority of goyish welfare cheats are not shown living in massive new houses with manicured gardens. But the non-Jewish populations are justifiably chagrinned when the abusers are displayed living the lifestyle out of a movie set. I am too.

    Joseph, you say that loshon hora and dan lechaf zechus only apply to Shomrei Shabbos.

    But your own acceptance and spreading of loshon hora is what brands the Kushners as non-Shomrei Shabbos. However, in most respects they could be far more ehrlich and greater shomrei mitzvos than you. Does that mean that people are permitted to spread loshon horo about you?

    You are dan lechaf zechus for yourself but not for others. Don’t you have anything to do tshuva for on Yom Kippur?

    It is known that Joseph is a student of Rabbi Shmuel Brog. Rabbi Brog was a Tzadik and would never refer to Rav Goren as Goren or to Rav Soloveitchik as J.B.
    Unfortunately, this is not so with at least one of his wayward students.

    Joseph, you can’t have it both ways. Rav Goren actually held like you.
    Rav Goren maintained that the geyrus for the principal in the Langer case could be revoked since he was not nizhar in halacha after the geyrus.
    As a result, since the principal was still a goy (as you also maintain in the Trump case); Rav Goren, therefore, held that there was no mamzeirus.
    I guess you, Rav Goren and other Poskim at the time employed similar logic in order to avoid mamzeirus in Yisroel.

    Rav Ovadiah Yosef, Rav Elyashiv, and many others of their stature, had halachic disagreements with other Poskim and Rabbanim.
    These Poskim still maintain their status in Klal Yisroel, as mature people know the disagreements are l’shem Shomayim .
    However, the peanut brain critics will continue to complain and spew hatred as did Korach and his ilk.

    It baffles me why anyone would risk violating the d’oiraisas of lashon hara and “you should love the Ger” concerning Ivanka Trump.
    In addition, it is very rare that a Ger or a Baal Tshuva keeps all the mitzvos immediately. It is a lifetime work in progress as we know. We are all Gerim /Baalei Tshuva and we all struggle with our yetzer haras in observing all the laws of the Torah.
    Improving our own levels of Torah observance will bring us closer to Hashem and please Hashem ; lashon hara however, will not help anyone.

    “For adults, a typical serving is 4 ounces of fish.”

    Not to worry, after considering the fillers in frozen commercial gefilta fish (matzo meal, onions, carrots, eggs, etc.) four ounces of fish is probably what is contained in a 20 ounce loaf.

    Also, there is hardly any fish in fish sticks as well.

    It’s nuts to use expensive cuts for chulent. Second cut brisket it great and you don’t need to cook for 24 hours. Also, minute roast; use thinner front end for roast and back part for chulent. Finally, calachel meat is very good. Grain finished is best for any meat but not necessary for second cut brisket chulent meat.
