Would it have been so hard to include it right after shemona esrei and aleinu just like almost all other “simple” siddurim?
What’s strange is that they do that in the Sefard siddur.May 25, 2018 4:25 pm at 4:25 pm in reply to: Why does Schmaltz Herring cost $22 a pound? (excluding the onions & oil) #1526283
They sell Rolls buy 2 get 1 free , any roll you want at most stores
No they don’t

if you calculate the price per pound of just fish in a roll of sushi, it probably comes out to something like $50/lb
Sure, but how much can seaweed cost already?May 25, 2018 10:45 am at 10:45 am in reply to: Why does Schmaltz Herring cost $22 a pound? (excluding the onions & oil) #1526199

Some BT’s do have a problem getting a Taavah for something they can no longer eat
Ask an FFB about Lobster and ask a BT about it. An FFB would likely be repulsed by it, but a BT might have a problem if he smelled one
I’m sure you would agree that despite someone having a taavah for it, it would still be assur.
I’m not sure why that part of the analogy to a smartphone doesn’t work for you. Whatever the rabbonim feel about smartphones (assur, unwise, only filtered, etc.) shouldn’t be affected by the fact that people have them, the same way lobster isn’t muttar for a BT.May 25, 2018 12:14 am at 12:14 am in reply to: Why does Schmaltz Herring cost $22 a pound?

DY: Unfortunately, I don’t have time to run to every store, purchase the $7.50 or $10 minimum to get the sales price. If one does have hat time, kol hakavod.
Just curious; then why did you ask?May 25, 2018 12:14 am at 12:14 am in reply to: Why does Schmaltz Herring cost $22 a pound? (excluding the onions & oil) #1526063
Fill the container with herring & charge 9.99. At least the majority of the container should be herring, not onions & oil.
I’m looking forward to seeing that in stores soon, under the name “Haimy’s Heimishe Herring”.May 24, 2018 10:28 am at 10:28 am in reply to: Why do people think they could “trust themselves” with smartphones? #1525536
We don’t trust ourselves with arayos, that’s why there are hilchos yichud as well as other harchakos.
If you think you’ll walk into Wendy’s because your yetzer hora will be so strong, don’t go anywhere near it. However, specifically in the area of arayos, the yetzer hora is so strong that the Torah and Chazal instituted extra harchkos.May 24, 2018 12:08 am at 12:08 am in reply to: Why do people think they could “trust themselves” with smartphones? #1525393
The difference is a FFB frum jew never ate Treif (Or at least was not supposed to)
But what if he did? And what about non FFB?May 23, 2018 9:57 pm at 9:57 pm in reply to: Why do people think they could “trust themselves” with smartphones? #1525373
Why stop at smartphones?
How can you trust yourself to not be mechallel shabbos,eat traif, hilchos nidda,
You’ve partially answered your own question. We do find that you’re not allowed to trust yourself for some things, hence hilchos yichud.
Is it a wonder that some put an unfiltered device in the same category?

Exactly how Sushi is related to Smartphones is beyond me
Samsung’s flagship line of smartphones is the Galaxy S. S stands for sushi.
They’re saying it’s been sitting on the shelf since October 1st. It’s now May 23rd.
You didn’t answer my first question.
Also, who’s “they”?
Which liverwurst? Why not?

He replied that it is because he never once heard a non-jewish song in his life
That’s demonstrably untrue. In fact, there are at least two songs he recorded which were non-Jewish: Kumbaya, and the second part of Ki Va Moed.
It’s amazing that this myth keeps being repeated.
Presumably you cant burn Issureoi haanaah for fuel/heat.
Right. Which nobody is doing here. The hana’ah they’re getting is the mitzvah, which is muttar because mitzvos lav leihanus nitnu. Any ensuing celebration is a celebration of the mitzvah and not hana’ah from the item.
If someone toiveled (during the winter) in a mikva which was ne’esar b’hana’ah to him, which is muttar because mitzvos lav leihanus nitnu and there’s no physical pleasure, he can definitely make a party to celebrate that he was m’kayem the mitzvah of tevilah.
Not sure what relevance pyromania has to your question.
So for a pyromaniac who gets Hannaah from burning is that a problem? Or is it davka physical hanaah
There’s no heter of mitzvos lav leihonos nitnu on pyromania.
So it’s not relevant to this case.
But if said destruction is “fun” isnt that hannah
It’s not hana’ah from the item of issur.
though as I recall using a mikva that one made a neder on is assur in summer
That’s physical hana’ah from the actual item of issur.
But isnt hosting a dance with music inviting friends dancing to celebrate said destruction and having a grand old time, having haanah from the item?
It supposedly was a recording of the word laurel on the vocabulary dot com website.

DY, eiva and chillul Hashem do intersect.
I didn’t say otherwise; I said (implied) that they’re not the same.
T2, you can continue to quote how bad chillul Hashem is, but that simply wasn’t.May 15, 2018 5:23 pm at 5:23 pm in reply to: Chashuve Rabbonim participating in Public Events with Goiyeshe Prayers #1521167
Its a חלול שם שמים בפני כל עם. There is no teshuva for this.
Repeating it doesn’t change the fact that it isn’t. You are obviously not familiar with what the definition of chillul Hashem is.
What do you think it means?
How about a Shavigger?May 15, 2018 7:00 am at 7:00 am in reply to: Chashuve Rabbonim participating in Public Events with Goiyeshe Prayers #1520709

The scientific name for the Atlantic herring is actually Clupea harengus.
I don’t see it.
How do doctors give less time to Medicaid patients than to their other patients?
By checking them more quickly (therefore less thoroughly) and spending less time answering questions.
waiving a copay is not insurance fraud
It can be considered an illegal kickback, or a violation of the contract with the insurance company (and therefore fraud).
Who says they’re allowed to?
if a yid bounces a very large check to you, as bad as he may be even if he did it intentionally and refuses to pay up, there’s not even a hava amina in the S”A or poskim that you might have a heter to press criminal charges against him
If he’s likely to do it again, and this is the only way to prevent it, it might be a chiyuv. As Per Shulchan Aruch.
I think jail is dehumanizing and should only be used for violent offenders.
How would you punish Bernie Madoff?
The Rosh is right. I don’t even think the Rif argues.

Anyone have an opinion on buying marijuana stocks ?!?!
Did they make it in BOBOV 45 and BOBOV 33?
The original Bobover version was on an album titled “Eizehu M’komon”.
Was your previous comment directed at the Bob Dylan post? I’m quite skeptical.
On the topic of original recordings, does anyone know if there is an actual studio recording of the song Sameyach which was composed by Mona Rosenblum and sung by MBD on the live In Jerusalem CD and HASC 5, and played by Moms on HASC 6 in a Mona Medley?
It was actually composed by R’ Baruch Chait and first appeared on a Kol Salonika tape called V’somachta.
According to the back of the record, it was composed by Shlomo Zolty, and Mordechai Paul also had a solo.
The problem with this question is that we don’t know which song he is actually referring to
We do, because it’s the one MBD sang on MBD and Friends.
First Toronto record. About 1974 or so. Soloist was David Buzaglo.
