Following ICOT and BPG’s advice, I finally mustered up the courage to inform her of the situation. Despite a curt “thank you” and the door immediately closed, her face said it all. She turned sheetrock white in the face and looked like her world just caved in. I only hope she doesn’t now think I’ve been eavesdropping on her for however long shes owned that handset.
They will become servants to Jews, after Moshiach.
I’m glad to know that you disagree with the halacha (in determining that it is “not a very good use of limited Tzedakah money.”), zsdad.December 30, 2012 11:31 pm at 11:31 pm in reply to: When & why did we start giving children more than one name? #916336
shmendrik: For thousands of years, until about 90 years ago, girls were only educated at home and women generally did not leave their homes too often. Should we go back to our holy tradition and close the Bais Yaakovs?
downadin: Why not post your frugal and healthful ideas here for all to share.
DaMoshe: I see. It isn’t okay, to your way of thinking, to criticize Blacks or Jews as a demographic, but it is okay to criticize “frum Jews” as a demographic.
What denomination are you?
Those allegations are lies.
mdd: In your opinion. Others may differ. And in which seforim, specifically?
Then fall, squeak?
rebdoniel: Take your antisemitism elsewhere.
Making 25k-30k, the adults in the household would NOT qualify for Medicaid medical insurance. And they would qualify for only a small amount of food stamps.
That is not correct benignuman. The Ashkenazi Rishonim/Achronim lived under Christian rule and thus could not publish their Seforim with it saying Christianity is Avoda Zora, as the censors would not allow it.
I don’t believe the waitress.
Welfare receipients must renew/reapply every six months. And a renewal requires all the same information as a new application. Its always been like that.
zd: The Halacha is that if a rich man living on Park Avenue can no longer afford his rent, the community is obligated to pay his rent with Tzedakah.
Oomis: How were you able to communicate with the mods if you lost access?
How is attending an Anglician Church service, with cheese-n-crackers invoked and prayed to in front of a cross, not avoda zora? (Or different than a Catholic Church service, for that matter.)
torah613613torah: In any of those cases where you’ve seen an attraction develop, did the relationship go further?
Yekke’s wait three hours; it is the Dutch that wait only one hour.
But either way why marry a feminist? Marry a machist.
Hishtadlus would include moving to New York for shidduchim. You must do your histadlus.
He merged with 7Up.
There are definite downsides to living out-of-town. This is one of the many downsides to living away from a large Jewish community.
Many people, especially shidduch age, move to New York.
Hilchos Yichud are still in force when seeing a therapist.
Perhaps, even, especially so.
Wear a nice shabbos outfit. Most girls don’t wear fancy like wedding.”
Off topic, but why do girls dress nicer for a wedding than they do for Shabbos Kodesh?
Do a kallah and chosson not dress up more than for a typical Shabbos? Clearly the chassunah has a certain sartorial status that begs the wearing of a certain type of clothing. Nonetheless, people SHOULD dress up for Shabbos in their best clothing, even if not wedding style.
A Choson and Kallah are a Melech and Malka. So it is clearly justifiable that they dress up.
But a person should certainly dress up on Shabbos Kodesh more so than for a wedding. Certainly not the reverse.
(Also, some girls want to make Shidduchim, and they will be seen by and converse with more people at the wedding than on a typical Shabbos at Shul)
This is wrong. They shouldn’t be conversing with guys. And they certainly shouldn’t be dressing up for guys. That is as wrong as it gets. And Yeshivish girls are not shopping themselves to men at weddings, G-d forbid. And if they are conversing with other women at the wedding reception who may know someone for them, they certainly do not have to dress to the hilt, or dress to kill, for other women. Dressing as nicely for a wedding as they do for Shabbos Kodesh is certainly more than sufficient. More than that is very wrong.
Clearly these girls are dressing up as they do for all the wrong reasons.
Your father’s Reform “minhagim” have no bearing and are meaningless.
The takana is only applicable to the Syrian (SY) community; not the wider Sephardic community.
Any female singers at the concert?
The Chasam Sofer says IF there were extenuating circumstances (i.e. mental illness) that prompted the suicide, then we do not treat it as a halachic suicide. The CS does not exclude the possibility of some cases falling under the halachic penalties prescribed for a suicide.June 4, 2012 4:43 am at 4:43 am in reply to: MUST READ- Real Solutions to the Internet Challenge #922537
apushatayid: And there is no internet connectivity in any home in New Square. I’m pleased you appreciate the Skverrer Rebbe’s position on this matter. (Which is the reason no home in NS has internet.)
Wolf, I glanced at your profile and noticed that youve been fascinated with the topic of suicide for years now.
There are opportunities that a suicide can do teshuva (not all methods of suicide produce instantaneous death) and yet we still say that they have no chelek in olam habah.
Those type of suicdes, where he may have done teshuva, such as if he sufficates himself with a bag – we in fact do assume he did teshuva (ie after he could no longer remove the bag but was still concious enough to do teshuva). And in such a suicide we dont bury him in the outskirts of the cemetary, as we would if it were an instant suicide.
Suicide isn’t intrinsically worse than murder. Its just that a suicide leaves no opportunity for teshuva, while a murderer can do teshuva.
Someone “considering” suicide c’v can be dissuaded or change his mind. He should not be shunned. Nor should someone considering murder. He should be dissuaded and he should do teshuva.
M.O.: I’ve never seen such a thing in any of the many shuls I’ve davened in.
Rav Elyashev paskened that the RCA prenup can cause a future get to be a get meusa.
He joined Mod-80 in an old age home where elderly mods go to retire.
chulent: what is your source for your statement that you are not allowed to put things in your pockets on shabos?
What if the person is single or otherwise doean’t have a talis bag? (Or is a woman.)
The question pertains when there is no readily available garbage bin. (At least not without pushing through dozens of mispallelim to get there.)
A Yid speaks Yiddish.
Letzanus, as I indicated.
AZ: It is a real live binding psak. End quote. Newspapers are meaningless. No one gives them hechsheirim.
P.S. I am using a filtered connection at my place of employment.
P.P.S. Over 60,000 Yidden (rivivos alfei yisroel) heard the posek hador give his psak din live. Anyone else can hear an audio recording.
This appears to be letzanus.
Are you asking about yourself?
This is a a silly question (sorry), but why is this type of yeshiva located in Meah Shearim?
apushatayid: Can you please share with us a brief synopsis of what each of them related in that issue of their feelings of the asifa?
There is no reason to put psak in quotation marks. It is a real psak. Issued by a contemporary posek hador.
Rav Ovadia Yosef is one of the poskim who completely assur sheitals.
In theory, sure. Pikuach Nefesh doicha…
And it doesn’t have the issurim of the three shavuos. (Yes, the three oaths are binding, and I’m not going to enter a fruitless debate about them.)
But then again, how “Jewish” is Jewish?
But the fact the zionists first consideration was Uganda as the “Jewish” homeland, demonstrates the zionists complete lack of allegiance to, and despisal of, Torah and Judaism.
MDG: The Sephardic pronunciation has many errors in it. The closest to being correct, by far, is the Teimani pronunciation.
Feif Un: You are entirely incorrect and do not know of which you speak. The Baal Shem Tov lived a generation prior to the Vilna Gaon and the Gaon’s cherem never included the Besht, nor did he consider him what you said he did.
Is it a Meah Shearim type of Yeshiva?
