It’s only a “crisis”, because the Jewish community is stunned that many women want to obtain a legitimate education and profession moving forward. I promise that it will not be the end of the faith, if individuals get married at a more matured age, versus being pressured into marriage at a point where they cannot even legally buy alcohol.
Women who wish to be responsible by pursuing a career and education, versus being burdened with the responsibility of children at a ridiculously young age? I can only hope that such a trend continues in the Jewish community.
I will only approve this post with the disclaimer that your referencing children as burdens is offensive and wrong.
Meno: Not all words are created equal, regardless if they define the same type of person.
Joseph: Yes, because the billions upon billions of non-Jews who have existed throughout history, have all harmed you personally.
How about we stop using the term goyim as a whole? It clearly possesses a significant, negative connotation to a group of people who have done you no harm.
Huh? We’re making it HARDER for them to get a weapon through the bill versus just allowing things to progress into even greater chaos.
You do realize that Iran was going to obtain a nuclear weapon no matter what, and that the bill at the very least forces oversight into their work, right?July 21, 2017 11:02 am at 11:02 am in reply to: ANOTHER shocking LETTER published IN the VOICE of LAKEWOOD #1322424
I’m not surprised to see such horror studies being publicized in droves recently. The yeshiva system has been failing significantly over the past decade, and a tremendous amount of reform and modernization is required to save its primary structure.
You might want to consider a profession change, if you genuinely believe your aforementioned comments regarding FDR.
Joseph: I sincerely hope you’re not planning on teaching history to children, given your revisionist and counterfactual history knowledge on FDR.

Abolish the shidduch system and allow individuals to organically meet on their own.July 17, 2017 12:34 pm at 12:34 pm in reply to: SHOCKING Letter Published In Lakewood Newspaper ⚡📰 #1318880
The selectivity among yeshivas and other private Orthodox institutions will be the downfall of the entire yeshiva system, should it refuse to evolve over-time.
How about we abolish the ridiculous shidduch system and allow two individuals to organically meet on their own? (:July 14, 2017 7:47 pm at 7:47 pm in reply to: Should Yeshiva world invite experts to interact with the audience on vital issues #1317930
DaasYochid: Your comment completely disregards my original point and is a straw-man fallacy.July 14, 2017 5:56 pm at 5:56 pm in reply to: Should Yeshiva world invite experts to interact with the audience on vital issues #1317881
Meno: Certainly, considering the Judaic education is likely going to be sufficient already, given that it’s a yeshiva.July 14, 2017 2:56 pm at 2:56 pm in reply to: Should Yeshiva world invite experts to interact with the audience on vital issues #1317848
Yeshivas should focus on procuring a sufficient secular education for their students before anything else.
I became a communist at Columbia, so likely not. (:
It’s baffling that in any situation where a Jew and a gentile (goy is a derogatory term and shouldn’t be uttered) are on opposing sides, we automatically side with the former because we share common religious beliefs. I hate to break this earth-shattering news, but not all Jews are diamonds simply due to the fact they are Jewish.
Let all verified facts be released before issuing a judgment for either side.
Hopefully the cult now dissipates with their evil overlord now deceased.
Dr. Nat, a BTL is completely useless outside of applying to a profession that requires standardized testing. In such professions like law, the LSAT score weighs far greater than the undergraduate degree (though someone with similar scores to another who attended a legitimate university will in all likelihood earn the spot over the BTL holder).
If you want to obtain the BTL as fulfillment of a prerequisite for needing Bachelors degree, then it’s not entirely useless. However, please don’t be fooled into thinking a BTL is on par with a degree at a respectable institution of secular learning.
Just keep in mind that not all BA or MA degrees for that matter, are created equal. Where you attended and how well you preformed can have significant impacts down the line too
Regardless of one’s adherence to the Torah, it is both immoral and cruel to force individuals who do not follow the religion to follow your own specific guidelines. It is most certainly not our place to dictate the law of the land as it pertains to same-sex marriage, nor is it our place to dictate any law from a strictly religious standpoint. The separation of church and state exists for a reason.July 7, 2017 3:34 pm at 3:34 pm in reply to: Another glorious nonsensical back and forth between Health and Ubiquitin #1313096
Meno, I was referring to his statements regarding a degree not being a necessity to become a professor. As it pertains to your comment, of course not everyone is capable of handling the rigors and pressure of college. However, my issue stems from the yeshivos completely disregarding college as an option for their students, and pushing their students towards learning regardless of the student’s specific skill set.July 7, 2017 2:16 pm at 2:16 pm in reply to: Another glorious nonsensical back and forth between Health and Ubiquitin #1313075
Avi, that statement is simply not true. Any respectable university hires adjunct professors who at minimum have a Master’s degree, and they will only give tenure to professors who have obtained a PhD that are actively publishing their workJuly 7, 2017 12:12 am at 12:12 am in reply to: Another glorious nonsensical back and forth between Health and Ubiquitin #1312765
I vehemently disagree, especially as it pertains to the Orthodox community. The refusal of many yeshivos to push college as a legitimate option for their students is precisely why some “non-learners” (otherwise labeled as second class citizens by many Orthodox communities) struggle to find their career path at an appropriate age.July 6, 2017 9:56 pm at 9:56 pm in reply to: Another glorious nonsensical back and forth between Health and Ubiquitin #1312752
“College is not a necessity”
It’s likely a necessity for those who wish to live a secular lifestyle. Moreover, everyone should have the capability of attending a public university without worrying about finances.July 6, 2017 7:09 pm at 7:09 pm in reply to: Another glorious nonsensical back and forth between Health and Ubiquitin #1312707
