you should post where you get your tidbits from.
besides the fact we don’t know if it comes from a reliable source, in this case daily halacha.
it’s also brought down that it’s to be done. (learnt from Esther she quoted Mordecai)December 5, 2010 3:37 pm at 3:37 pm in reply to: Older Singles #716457

i beg to differ.
i really didn’t get wolf’s post, so no comment on that part.

now that you pulled me into this topic (all i said before was it’s not pashut)
the poskum DO say you shouldn’t make it a career choice, look at
Divrei Chachumim page 192:47,
Kinyan Torah 1:54:5,
Darchei Teshuva, Maharam Shick 152,
Zera Emes 2:45,
Yehuda Yalei Y.D. 1:177,
let me know when you’re doneDecember 2, 2010 6:01 pm at 6:01 pm in reply to: help, can I design pritzus clothing to sell to goyim? #721959
“You can even manufacture christian crosses to sell to goyim. “
that’s not true. you can’t make or sell things that are used for avoda zara, and it’s not poshut about the cross.December 2, 2010 5:59 pm at 5:59 pm in reply to: Popularity of Bourbon #731328
if your price range is in the 30’s you won’t get better than woodford reserve. it’s an excellent choice, go with it.
ps if you don’t like bourbon or scotch try amaretto.December 2, 2010 4:13 pm at 4:13 pm in reply to: When an infant is niftar R"L… #714798
there is a famous story with the baal shem tov, a woman couldn’t have kids for many years, finally had one and he was niftar at the age of 2. she went back to the baal shem tov and asked why?
he said there was a person that was a huge tzaddik, whom every year went higher in gan eden, until one year they said no more!
because he was nursed by a goy, he said that wasn’t my fault!
they decided to bring him down to earth again, nurse from a yid and continue going higher and higher in gan eden. the baal shem tov looks at the woman and says you were zoche to be his mother and the one to nurse him!!!

good for you!!! all the seforim bring down major brachas for being Dan L’kaf zchus, as well as not answering when being insulted.
anyone else work on being Dan L’kaf zchus?November 30, 2010 10:24 pm at 10:24 pm in reply to: working on something together #715741
i actually did, i saw your idea and realized it’s a step by step process
first we have to be Dan L’kaf zchus
than it’s easier not to get angry
last if we’re Dan L’kaf zchus and not getting angry, we would automatically speak less lashon hara?
looking forward to hearing of your positive results 🙂November 30, 2010 9:31 pm at 9:31 pm in reply to: working on something together #715738
lets start with Dan L’kaf zchus

ps i’m of the opinion ALL bread, rolls, bagels are hamotziNovember 30, 2010 5:41 am at 5:41 am in reply to: Johhny Lingo's 8 cow wife #866924

I checked it out, you misunderstood it.
he says you shouldn’t dream of owning something someone else has, that you CAN’T get.
he brings the example of simple farmer not dreaming of marring a princess.
if you can’t afford a gold becher, you’re right don’t think of it.
if you could afford it, the Ibn Ezra doesn’t apply, and let the person buy what he wants, and use it as he wants. don’t forget there are times that we’re supposed to be using our “best” and if someone is worth a billion, the $50.00 becher others use would not be his best.November 29, 2010 4:00 am at 4:00 am in reply to: Things are getting out of hand #713878
I think it’s beautiful, as a matter of fact i almost bought it, i just couldn’t get used to the gold as I’ve been using and seeing silver all my life.
how could you put a price on a mitzvah? jealousy is a terrible middah!!
as far as a lexus etc.. ppl can and should spend what they can afford. if G-d gave it to them let them enjoy it, as long as they’re giving tzeddkaNovember 26, 2010 2:09 pm at 2:09 pm in reply to: Entertainment for Chanukah Party #713616

a rebbi once told me, it means more to get a small amount a few times a year, then once a big check.November 25, 2010 5:40 am at 5:40 am in reply to: How Can I Change My Attitude About Shabbos? #712857
shabbos is about relaxing, and spending time with your family. when you see them devour your challa, slurp the soup down, and eat the cake as if it was the first time they had cake. all that should put a smile on your face, and some satisfaction for your hard work.
now the question is, does everything have to be home made and so delicious? the challas are a special mitzvah given to woman, but maybe bake every second or third week.
fish and chicken can be bought. if money is tight buy the fish, it’s not much more than making it at home.
cakes, how many do you make? 2, 3, or 1? that’s all that’s needed.
you didn’t mention how many kids, or their ages. can they help set and clean the table?
toys, make a program no shabbos nosh until the toys are put away. if that doesn’t work, maybe ignore the mess until Friday morning so you’re only putting them away once. it’s kavod shabbos to have a mess, if the kids are playing and enjoying themselves, most important they’re enjoying shabbos.
certain areas have high school girls come as a chesed, call a local school see if they such a program, and utilize it.
can you go away once in a while? parents, in-laws, sister, brother, friend? that would take a huge strain off you.
bottom line shabbos like many things is a mindset, if you do what you can without killing yourself, you’re mind should tell you not to feel guilty, that you only had one kugel and not two.
whatever you do, don’t clean the toys on shabbos, that’s your day of rest too.
bsha tova on the next one!November 24, 2010 6:47 pm at 6:47 pm in reply to: Thanksgiving: Church Holiday #1146273
that’s very kind of you, and very big.
i have nothing against “you” i just don’t like ppl posting things against halacha, where due to the vast quantity of readers here, many can come out with the wrong halacha.
why we don’t we switch from “what’s wrong with it” or “it’s not cooking so it’s fine” as a statement of fact, to a question?
“we can’t cook for them, but can we make the food beforehand?”
i think that will make everyone happy, especially being there is nothing wrong with a question.
on a side note, in the infinite wisdom of the moderators, they deleted posts i had, where there was nothing wrong in it, one of them said clearly you’re not an apikoros because you claim to have self-esteem issues. i said you “would be” (never said you are) an apikoros if you had the attitude of, so i’m a rasha who cares.
hope this all makes sense, with nothing being capitalized.November 24, 2010 2:18 pm at 2:18 pm in reply to: Thanksgiving: Church Holiday #1146254
this is a good example of what separates a ben torah from a apikoros.
a ben torah says if that’s what the posuk hador, rav moshe zazal says, that’s what we’ll do, we can try to understand his reasoning, but there is no room for turkey on that day in my house!
an apikoros says, i don’t see what’s wrong with it, so I’ll eat it, until and unless you convince me not to.
wouldn’t this be the one thing that’s easy to adhere to? and not spend time looking for heterim? i purposely don’t eat turkey (which i like) to show i listen to gedolim, and proud of it!November 22, 2010 9:35 pm at 9:35 pm in reply to: Proactive Mussar #711152
i looked on line ( i don’t have a chumash on me) so i might have missed something, from what i saw in Veeschanan Rashi doesn’t say anythingNovember 22, 2010 8:25 pm at 8:25 pm in reply to: Proactive Mussar #711150

am i the only that cares of the hypocrisy here?
wolf says what he wants, you disagree, he says prove it, when you do he says ok enough of this conversation.November 17, 2010 7:46 pm at 7:46 pm in reply to: Inviting Non-Jewish Co-Workers To A Simcha? #1143996
“Good job! Now was that so difficult?! “
uuh i dunno lolNovember 17, 2010 7:39 pm at 7:39 pm in reply to: Inviting Non-Jewish Co-Workers To A Simcha? #1143989
i find it interesting, you rant and rave how you outsmarted the torah. you made sandwiches before yom tov.
i kept saying it’s still not allowed.
you claimed to ask a rav, and asked me for proof it’s not allowed, i proved that proof. why the secret who the rav is?
and if you have nothing to back up your claim, you shouldn’t be posting non existent halachos on line.
if you would have formed it as a question that would be fine, but not well i serve sandwiches so that’s OKNovember 17, 2010 7:30 pm at 7:30 pm in reply to: Inviting Non-Jewish Co-Workers To A Simcha? #1143983
tb believe me if i wrote better, life would be easier. i don’t write much as my employees do it for me, so what you see is how i dictate it to them, not used to correcting it.
one thing for sure if i wrote like wolf, he wouldn’t stand a chance 🙂
arc stop wasting your breath and my time.
