42: Can I please be mesader kedushin between you and popa?
The Gemora in Sotah (21a) tells us that the Torah protects us from pain and affliction.

zahavasdad: Who cares about those apikorusdika losers. Let them dance on their head protesting every Torah event. It doesn’t bother us and it’s their gehenim, no one else’s.
Boys Yeshivos don’t give mid-winter vacation, like girls schools.
Because boys are in school 13 hours a day (Going to shachris 7am – finishing mishmor 8pm, starting in 6th or 7th grade elementary school!), 6 days a week. Girls start at 9 and finish by 3, with less school days per week to boot.
Nope, Rav Hutner’s release was negotiated. No Israeli army.
And no milchemes mitzvah’s today.
Boys have much less “after school time” than girls. Boys have early shachris through late mishmor.
The correct answer is that the Frum Yidden should protect Klal Yisroel by learning Torah while Chilonim should do so by joining the Army.
Klal Yisroel needs a strong amount of Limud Torah. The Chilonim are completely neglecting that. So the responsibility of Limud Torah is falling fully on the shoulders of the Frum Yidden. Therefore the Frum should learn Torah while the frei go to the Army.
If you think Torah will protect you from a Terrorist

And Rav Hutner was saved!
The US Government isn’t implementing a Shaas Shmad to force the Torah leit out of the Beis Medrash and into an infamously immoral army.
Mod42: Many sites allow you to choose your own security question.
mdd: You tell ’em. You’d of made a great spokesman for Czar Nicholas II. Those Russian Jews kept trying to defy the laws of Russia. Evading the draft. Running away from pograms. And they wondered why they suffered negative consequences!? They should of enlisted in the Czar’s Army as the law demanded!
So let them deny the vote to Arab citizens.
If they want to deny Chareidim benefits, Chareidim will no longer have to pay Israeli taxes. No more income or sales or VAT tax for Chareidim and they won’t take benefits.
The Gedolei Eretz Yisroel said this Gezeira Rah to draft Chareidim is a Shaas Shmad. We have to be willing to go to jail or give up our lives rather than join their army.
ICOT: Your post gave me some new info. I had a basic idea of the difference, but not the details you provided. Thanks again
golfer: A Heimish Yid, at minimum, hold from Daas Torah and mesorah. It may mean much more than that much, but that is a fundamental across the board.
As an aside, it is a hemishe minhag that the fathers walk the choson and the mothers walk the kallah to the chupa. Though a minority eschew that.July 10, 2012 3:58 pm at 3:58 pm in reply to: How the CR got it's name and if you could have named it, what would it be? #883948

Even in 1973 Ger Chasidim, as a rule, did not serve in the IDF.
We can agree to your last comment that we each all follow our own Gedolim.
We’ll respect you following your Gedolim on this issue. And you’ll respect us following our Gedolim on this issue. Nothing could be nicer and sweeter to the Torah.
You follow your Gedolim’s wishes and serve in the IDF (if you live in Israel.)
And we’ll follow our Gedolim’s wishes and not serve in the IDF.
I’m glad that we, B”H, were able to come to an accommodation with each other, b’Shalom.
Not the same Aramaic as the Gemorah is written in.
Are you volunteering?? Because it is a difficult and unpaid job. Are you ready for the harassment by everyone whose post is deleted or edited?
I would think twice — long and hard — before offering to volunteer as one.
Yes, it’s assur. But you agree that I was kidding about the forgery, right? So who cares?
mdd: He doesn’t have to convince the zionists fanatics; they are already sold.
I don’t think its against halacha, but its completely stupid since it will confuse the dater and have him/her making comparisons.
Sam2: It’s not the same prohibition as gezel.
Sam2: No, it’s only gezel akum.
RT: What gives you the idea the images are even remotely authentic?
hello99: You sure have a looooong memory.
I thank my Hewlett-Packard laser printer for my graduating with honors. I thank it, too, for the great jobs it has helped land for me.

They don’t serve. (Some individuals associated with them may have enlisted on their own initiative.)
IS: Modern Hebrew is neither the language of the Torah nor unifying, nor, IMHO, any different than Turkish or Farsi – it is the language of a secular culture complete with all those things that we want to stay away from.
How’s a netbook different than a notebook?
So in other words, a shirt being more expensive does not necessarily make it any better than a less expensive shirt. You can get great shirts that cost less than the “brand names”.
Yiddish is truly a beautiful, unifying, language.
Sam: Why is he considered a b’chor if he was born via c/section? There is no pidyon haben.
Heimish means someone who is “varem” or a warm personality.
How’s a netbook different than a notebook?
How much do the white shirts you posters are recommending, cost?
If the b’chor was born via C/Section, does he still get a double portion?
If the text is more than 160 characters, it’ll be sent as multiple texts. No biggie.
sam4: $45 on one shirt!?!
The Brisker Rov was always known as The Rov (or Der Rov). Even in Europe.
I don’t have a suggestion offhand, but did wish to salute you for wearing white shirts!
Here we have a shining example as to why we have a “three weeks” and a “nine days.”
Agreed. The Gedolim wrote that the creation of the medina delayed the coming of Moshiach.
