    if 40k is wealth, would you say amen when you get a bracha you should make every year 40k no more and no less???

    as far as which rabbonim say the bracha is wealth ie money

    minchas chinuch “the bracha is money”

    aruch hashulchan ‘i don’t know why it doesn’t work for everyone”

    rav chaim kanievsky “it’s talking about wealth, maybe it doesn’t work because of____” (he gave a few reasons)

    “our needs are more important than our wants”, that would fit well if the promise was “give masser, and you’ll have everything you need” that’s not what the promise is. if it was i would have no questions.

    poseach es yadecha umasbia l’chol chai ratzon actually rabbi reisman has the same question i’m asking on masser in regards to this posuk, he says the posuk means hashem gives us what we want, and that’s obvisaly not true. but that’s not my question for now.

    all the rabbonim agree that wealth is a lot of money! that was the promise and the reward, so it’s not really up for debate.

    whether wealth is a million or 4 million, doesn’t make a difference, ppl don’t have either one, so the main question still remains.

    and not one rav says that wealth means enough to pay your bills, so if that’s your understanding, it’s a daas yachid

    I don’t believe a person gets all he wants, you’re taking what i said out of context.

    you said you’re happy with 40k and that’s wealth for you i said ok, what about the guy who a million dollars is wealth? most ppl have higher standards than 40k a year!

    better yet maybe wealth is a dollar? so everyone has a dollar, this proves hashem rewarded them for masser.

    lets make this simpler so a 3rd grader can get it, if the torah promises wealth, then wealth is what is to be expected, not anything less. especially if hashem says you can test me.

    what is wealth? i tried to stay away from this argument because wealth can mean different things to different ppl,but I’ll make this even simpler so you’ll get it.

    MOST PPL DON’T HAVE WHAT THE AVERAGE PERSON CONSIDERS WEALTH

    so if someone says just give me 25k a year after expenses to have a small savings account, most ppl don’t have that! so again the question remains what happened to hashems promise?

    ps this question is not mine, 100’s have asked before me, including many sefarim, and there really is no good answer, that’s why i wanted to see what the ppl here had to say. all the rabbonim i spoke to, not one gave me the ludacris answers you’re giving! so stop with the 40k is wealth, stupidity

    so things in the torah aren’t meant to be taken literally?

    so was shabbos a suggestion? how about gan eden maybe that was an example of what could be there after 120?

    just wondering where do we start and stop? i for one grew up that the torah is 100% accurate, the gemarah on the other hand at times exaggerates a little.

    it took me a while but i get what you’re saying.

    basically because there might be one person that for him $100 million is enough, which hashem obviously can’t handle, his account is only good for a few thousand. therefore the whole posuk in chumash and tanach was a printing error! hashem never promised wealth, because what’s wealth for you is not wealth for me. got it!

    what else can we take out? shabbos is a little tough for me, can you take that out too?

    basic translation, which EVERY rav agrees is what it means, agrees give masser and the reward is wealth! period!

    you want to say wealth for you is 40k i respect that, but my question remains, what about the guy who wants more? and I’m not talking about 100 million (you like to go to the extreme to wash the basic question away) how about a guy who wants to pay all his bills and have money left over at the end of the month? is every guy giving masser getting that?

    how about a better question give him a simple living, but where he doesn’t have to worry about getting fired, or losing his big customers??

    bottom line if you’re happy with 40k a year that’s great i hope you get it, but don’t put words in hashems mouth, the posuk is as clear as day, and the question remains.

    now tanach give masser and hashem will give you back ad bli dai, dai means enough, translation is they’ll have wealth until they say enough, that’s literal translation.

    now gemarah, it says in many places the rewrd for masser is wealth, they get it from the torah and tanach quoted above.

    i don’t think hashem would promise wealth, and go as far as saying you can even test me, and then say well really the reward is i’ll make yoiu happy with what you have, of the fact you have an apartment and some ppl are homeless means you’re wealth

    based on what you’re saying the reward for masser is being happy with what you have.

    besides the fact that goes against every sefer and gemarah, which says the reward is wealth, which means a lot of money.

    how would you explain the ppl that give masser and are not happy with what they have? you can’t say they should learn to be happy, because that’s true for all of us, according to you the reward should mean that hashem makes everyone happy with what they have?

    interesting name.

    certain things are indisputable, for example hashem promises anyone who gives masser, so much wealth, ie money! until they say enough. that means more than, be happy with what you have, or you could have $10,000 less, or be happy your rent is paid on time, etc…

    hashem says clearly you will be WEALTHY, that’s CASH, and it will be so much you will say enough!! ppl don’t say enough already because their rent is paid for the month.

    if hashem did mean, give masser and you’ll have a nice job, and make $200,000.00 a year, the promise and guarantee should have been give masser and you’ll be comfortable, or you’ll always have food, or I’ll reward you that you’ll be happy with what you have, but again the promise! not bracha, is you will be an asher (a wealthy person) until you say enough!!!!!!

    no, there is no set amount to be called wealthy.

    but if someone has a modest home, drives a Honda accord, etc.. and doesn’t have more than six months worth of expenses put away (again, he can collect tzedaka with less than 6 months worth) i think everyone would agree he’s not “wealthy” comfortable maybe, wealthy not.

    lets do even better, shouldn’t the guy who gives masser, have at least 6 or more months worth of expenses in the bank (assuming he doesn’t have investments)

    in reply to: Segulos #1050794

    most ppl don’t have much money and live month to month, as per the halacha these ppl are not only wealthy, but are entitled to tzedaka (less than 6 month cash reserve, makes a person entitled to tzedaka)

    ad bli dai, dai means enough, translation is they’ll have wealth until they say enough, that’s literal translation.

    all the gemarahs, seforim, rabbi’s, tanach, say the reward is wealth, not that you’ll be able to make a living

    So we established the reward and promise is wealth, and that doesn’t mean being poor and happy!

    The question of what is wealth? 100 million, 500 million? great question, I’m not sure. i guess it would depend on what makes that person “happy” (that’s what pirkei avos means happy with what you have) but in either case it’s not living month to month, or even 10k in the bank. maybe you can argue if someone owes zero on his house, car, and has money put away for all his kids weddings, etc. that’s wealth, fine. how many ppl have that kind of money?

    not many, so we’re still back to the question of why not?

    the promise is not “to be happy with what you have” because if that was the case a pauper that gives masser, his reward is being happy and broke?? NO! the promise is wealth! and 99% of us are not wealthy.

    the question is why not?

    “The sad fact is, it really does cost more to educate a child than the school charges.”

    that’s not true, it cost about 4-4.5k a child, they charge between 6 and 8k because a large number of ppl don’t pay 4k.

    what they should do is charge 4k and ask for donations to cover the ppl that don’t pay full tuition

    i think every posik and rav says it does apply to masser k’safim. (otherwise you would be right)

    why do i wonder if it works, or why it doesn’t? how many ppl do you know are so wealthy they say “enough already” how many frum ppl do you know that are really worth many millions? compared to the amount of yidden giving masser very few.

    so it’s more than just wait it out and you’ll get the promise fulfilled.

    and I’m stuck with the question, why a promise like that, doesn’t seem to come true?

    everything you wrote is true, BUT that isn’t the promise hashem made!

    the promise is anyone that gives masser will be so wealthy they won’t be able to say stop giving, enough times. the question is why that promise doesn’t seem to come true.

    to make the question stronger, hashem says you can even test me on it, and this is the only time we’re allowed to test hashem.

    so yes we have to be thankful for what we have, and be happy with it, but why doesn’t the PROMISE and GUARANTEE seem to work??

    the main problem with schools is, when it comes to collecting money, they say it’s a community school, and should we turn parents that have no money away?

    on the other hand question something they do, they say it’s a private school and if you don’t like it leave, how about asking to see the books? if it’s a community school we should be able to do so, or like it was posted here, if there is a vaad, who is on it? what factors go into the decision?

    <Frankly, your suggestions and comments that we should have the state pay for yeshivos through subterfuge, chicanery and outright fraud (calling money clearly meant for tuition relief “lunch money”) are very disturbing to me. Your complete lack of respect for the rule of law and your lack of understanding of state and federal government workings (such as suggesting that the state government could just ignore the Blaine Amendment if it wanted to) is also troubling.>

    It’s not fraud, if the state is willing to give the money, but will do so only if it’s called “lunch money” and THEY KNOW it’s more than lunch cost, it’s not fraud. laws are manipulated like that all the time. (and i don’t even like that word, it’s more like finding a loophole to make something work, and again it happens all the time)

    the constitution says there should be a separation of church and state, why is the federal government close for a christian holiday?? are they breaking the law?

    How did NYC open an Arab public school with our tax money?

    maybe that’s another solution have the state build a public school, where we’ll send our kids, have them pay the full cost, and we will rent the building for a few hours a day for anything we want, which will happen to be religious studies.

    I’ll say it again being this is my last post on the subject, if the state wanted to pay tuition for us, they know better than you and me how to do so, I’m not saying they should or have to, that’s a separate discussion, and not for now.

    I like many others enjoy a good debate, but now we’re going in circles so this is my last post on the subject, unless something new is posted.

    You seem to think that splitting the yeshivas up into two schools is somehow the government’s responsibility. when did i say that? i never said or implied that.

    It’s not. If a yeshiva wants to try this to get around the state constitution, then they are free to try. No one at the state level is stopping them from splitting their schools in two.

    The reason they aren’t doing it is because they can actually the constitution for themselves and see that even a secular school that is owned by a religious organization is ineligible for state funding. Your refusal to see this point is most mind-boggling.

    what’s mind boggling is how little you seem to know about politics and life. if there was a meeting between the state and local yeshivas, and the state was convinced they want to help us with tuition, (not that they should or have to, again my point is if they wanted to help us they can) they will say OK I’m sold, but we have a legal issue, the yeshivas can say (this is one of a hundred ideas) we will have 2 schools both renting space from a 3rd entity (a church can rent space from you, doesn’t mean you own a church or that you’re a priest)now the state is helping ONLY a secular school with no religious affiliation!!

    You seem to think that if the state wanted to, it could simply wish away the Blaine amendment. But government doesn’t work that way — despite your assertions to the contrary. it actually does, take your head out of the sand and you’ll see the government can and does do as it pleases, it bends laws, it breaks laws, it changes them as it pleases. welcome to politics, but it is what it is!

    i don’t have the time, but if you open your mind you’ll see how politicians, judges etc.. do with the law as they see fit. look at decisions from courts, go to your local DMV and sit there for an hour, one is found guilty and the judge winks at the officer, while another person is found not guilty and we know the judge hates that cop.

    2) Make 2 seperate schools one is religous one is not, I mentioned this before you chose to ignore it.

    I didn’t ignore it. The state isn’t stopping any yeshiva from doing this. If it’s such a good idea, how come not a single yeshiva has done it? Perhaps because the amendment applies not only to schools that teach religion but also to any school (even a secular one) that is owned by a religious institution.

    the reason no school is doing it, comes back to my point because the state is not looking to help yeshivas, if they wanted to this could be one of many ways to do it.

    3) Call it “lunch” money or “computers” or pay 4k per child for transportation, again if NYS wanted to give the money they know how to do it.

    Because the Constitution doesn’t allow for “lunch” money or “computers” money. And transportation is only allowed to cover the actual cost of the transportation.

    really? hmmm guess what yeshivas currently get lunch money, and computer money, and book money, and bus money. the reality is we do get millions, just not enough that parents don’t have to pay twice, once as a tax and again to yeshivas.

    4) Don’t give the schools money but give parents a break in taxes, for “private” schooling, nothing to do with religion.

    That may be workable, but then you have the issue of the fact that it’ll be difficult (if not impossible) to pass through a tax break for private schools when the state is flat broke, not to mention the fact that it would be perceived as a “tax break for the rich” (since private education, whether correctly or not, is closely associated with the rich).

    the fact that the state is broke is a silly argument, I’m talking about a general lack of interest on the states part to help with private tuition for many years, they said no when they had millions of extra dollars. so to say today well their broke, that’s not why it won’t work.

    They don’t care if it looks like a tax break, don’t you get it everything is politics, if there was a reason to help private schools they would, as of now there is no interest, so they have a hundred reasons they can’t.

    Like I’ve said many times already if there is a will here is a way!!!

    look at 4th period or dot. which states “Scientology would receive a special religious education tax deduction for its members. Scientologists can deduct tens — sometimes hundreds — of thousands of dollars per year for their private religious education. This kind of religious education deduction appears not to be available to Catholics, Protestants, or Jews sending their children to private religious schools. The Tax Notes Journal published by the prestigious Tax Analysts’ organization, a nonprofit organization which provides information relating to U.S. tax laws, also noticed this most unusual inequity. According to Tax Analysts, The IRS’s Revenue Ruling 93-73 may give a tax break to the Church of Scientology which is not shared by other churches.”

    Basically they get a tax exemption other religious institutes don’t receive.

    As far as NY state law, there are ways around everything, I don’t know why you’re not getting it. If NYS wanted to give us money, there are a million way they can.

    1) Change the law without a vote, not every law needs a vote.

    2) Make 2 seperate schools one is religous one is not, I mentioned this before you chose to ignore it.

    3) Call it “lunch” money or “computers” or pay 4k per child for transportation, again if NYS wanted to give the money they know how to do it.

    4) Don’t give the schools money but give parents a break in taxes, for “private” schooling, nothing to do with religion.

    The main point I was making, and still trying to make, is we don’t get money because they don’t want to give it, not because it’s illegal.

    it states clearly they get a tax break for education (tuition), not donations. it even says catholics, protestants, and Jews don’t get that deduction!

    Have you actually read the paragraph I quoted?

    YES and I’ll say it again and again, if we get money for the “secular studies” the state is NOT paying for anything religious.

    What Scientology got in its secret IRS deal

    The IRS agreed to dismiss all tax penalties and liens against Scientology organizations for an undisclosed number of years before 1993.

    The IRS would grant tax-exempt status to 114 Scientology-related entities in the U.S. This stipulation itself gives Scientology an ongoing financial benefit of an estimated $100 million per year.

    The IRS would drop its tax audits of the mother church, the Church of Scientology International (CSI), and 12 other Scientology organizations.

    Scientology would receive a special religious education tax deduction for its members. Scientologists can deduct tens — sometimes hundreds — of thousands of dollars per year for their private religious education. This kind of religious education deduction appears not to be available to Catholics, Protestants, or Jews sending their children to private religious schools.

    The IRS would cancel payroll taxes and penalties it had assessed against church entities and officials.

    The IRS’s Exempt Organizations Technical Division was “instructed not to review the exemption applications filed by the Church of Scientology and its affiliates for compliance with non-profit IRC 501(c)(3) tax regulations.”

    The IRS agreed not to audit the church for any year before 1993 and dropped its litigation in pursuit of church records.

    it’s not actually against the constitution, they use that as an excuse.

    1) they can give the 4k and say it’s for the secular education.

    2) if we would really enroll in ps, you’ll see how quickly they can change the law, especially when their cost goes sky high.

    You’re actually wrong on all 3 points

    1) while technically we can go to public schools, the fact is, it cost them between 8k and 15k per student per year. if we or any other group says we would like a better school system (forget religion) and it cost us less than what you’re paying now, so help us with 4k a year, per student per year, there is no good reason they can’t or don’t do so.

    2) of course taxes are based on usage, if a municipality estimates there are 400 police calls a year, 400 calls for ambulance, and 400 fires per year, they know how much staff they need and that’s part of the taxes.

    if the call volume doubled so would the staff and that part of the tax bill.

    3) why not? if i feel the public school system does a lousy job, or has some tough kids running around with weapons as long as the alternative is cheaper the state should have no problem with it.

    as far as hatzoloh they do get money, not as much as they need, but they do get money

    Good stuff i will call you rabbi I can only try

    like everything else it’s a machlakos, as far as the gemarah if masser applied outside e”y the gemarah would have answered the question as such. “why are ppl wealthy outside e”y? answer they give masser as well” if masser on money is an obligation that would have been the answer even if they were talking about things that grow.

    the following hold it’s not a darrasa 1) maharil tshuva 54 as well as 56, 2) rav chaim yosef david azulai, 3) rav yechiel michal epstein. others hold it’s just a minhag 1) rav meir rothenburg teshuva 131, 2) rav yoel sirkes, 3) dayan weiss, 4) rav shlomo zalman auerbach.

    for the record i always say bli neder so i can stop if c”v i have to.

    on a side note ppl don’t realize masser and tzedaka are 2 different things, tzedaka is darrasa and an absolute must, but not masser.

    ps if according to thoise that holds masser is darrasa why isn’t the promise coming true? the promise is we won’t be able to say stop enough times, even the wealthy ppl are not THAT wealthy!! and you can’t say anything that will include 100% of klay yisroel, there is no one now or ever before that was so wealthy they said enough already!

    I can only try

    you can start by looking at gemara shabbos 119A

    look at halachos sefarim, where we paskin it’s mostly a minhag, if you need me to quote the halacha sefarim let me know.

    to tomin tihye

    1) I’ve heard or read can’t remember, that a rav paskinded ppl should get rid of all debt (besides morgage and financed cars etc) before giving tzedaka

    2) if a person has no money to give, he can give masser to a poor person who then gives “his masser” back to you. so the 2 of you gave masser but didn’t lose anything.

    3) you can technically give yourself masser, although it’s the least preferred method

    4) ppl don’t know this but, there is no chiav no give masser outside of Israel at all! as a matter of fact i don’t know if the promise of wealth would even apply.

    1) Does one get an aveirah every time he forgets? that’s what’s brought down, but i think it only applies if he was negligent and that’s why he forgot

    2) Is the prohibition violated right away, even as you’re learning, or only after a while? as soon as you forget it

    3) Is there a certain amount of reviews after which you don’t have to worry about this? if a person is engrossed in learning it might not apply, i think it applies if you don’t learn consistently and that’s why you’re blamed for forgetting your learning

    4) What’s considered difficult in that if you can’t remember it it’s an oneis? What if you understand it,but know you’ll lose it or have already lost it?

    5) After 120, will I remeber what I have forgotten? YES, you’ll only know what you’ve learnt in the past

    6) Should you chazer something you’ve already forgotten, if you think you’ll forget again? yes

    7) Is there a problem with listening to Divrei Torah since I know I can’t memorize an entire speech? What about the Seder? no problem the more you learn the more you’ll remember even if it’s a different topic

    8) Do you have to remember everyhting, or just the main details?

    9) How often should I chazer? I heard to review when you’re memory span is at it’s limit, but I sometimes forget while I’m leanring, so… 4 times

    10) I literally can not do anything without something going on in the back of my head, which is a part of the problem. I’ve tried madicatin, long story. Does this affect anything, since it means I am not concentrating 100 perecent? no

    11) Is something learnt silently considered learning? yes

    12) How do I do teshuvah for this? learn, spend more time learning

    13) How is it possible for anyone to review everything they’ve learnt regularly enough to remeber it all? not possible

    14) How can I go onto new things If I can’t even hold onto the old things? when learning new things old things come back to you

    15)Do you need to be able to remember everything instantly, or is it enough to be able to remeber details if asked specifically about them?

    what is your problem?? anonymrs wrote “i am the wife of a smoker, and i would not trade it for any other addiction”, how can you argue with someones opinion???

    you write “It is not an either/or situation.” yes it is, if you look back the topic was which is a better vice, which means a person would have one vice.

    on a side note how does smoking effect you if no one smokes in your house or near you? if levy is smoking now does it affect you? i could understand being forceful if someone smoked in front of you, but in the privacy of their home, it doesn’t affect you, get over it.

    ppl keep in mind the camp usually charges x amount for a summer lets say 3k, they look at the fact they don’t charge the counselor as paying them 3k because they gave them room or board.

    I’m not saying it’s right or wrong, side there are always 2 sides to look at things.

    and as i said before this is simple business 101 supply and demand, as long as ppl are running to work for 5/hr or even free that’s what they’ll get paid.

    if every bus driver said they won’t work for less then 100/hr and the city can’t find a replacement for less, guess what the bus driver will be getting paid???
