    Is that accurate?

    No “proof” has been given. People are giving their own boich sevaras.

    How many people do you know who really gain more in ruchniyus by going away to some place with no minyan?

    Hint: not too many.

    What do you say “especially”? Women don’t have a mitzvah of p’ru ur’vu to begin with.

    I think people should only be banned if they are encouraging violence.

    Tach V’tat may not be universally commemorated but it is commemorated and considered the norm to do.

    I don’t understand your point. Are you claiming more people commemorate tach v’tat than the Holocaust? I don’t think that’s true.

    And “the Shabbos is not a commemoration for the crusades”. Well we certainly are saying a tefillah about it EVERY shabbos year round, so if those Rishonim that instituted that, then SURELY the Holocaust which was multiple times more horrific should perhaps more certainly have a specific tfilah every shabbos. Just like the crusades.

    So you’re making a new point – that we should commemorate the Holocaust every Shabbos just as we do the Crusades. I can’t speak for anyone else, but when I say Av Harachamim, I don’t specifically have in mind those who died al kiddush Hashem during the Crusades, I have in mind all those who died al kiddush Hashem throughout the generations, including in the Holocaust.

    We don’t universally keep a day to commemorate Tach V’tat, and Shabbos is not a commemoration of the Crusades.

    When Rav Herzog suggested Yom Hashoah to the Brisker Rav, he responded by quoting the paytan from מי יתן ראשי מים.

    שִׂימוּ נָא עַל לְבַבְכֶם מִסְפֵּד מַר לְקָשְׁרָה,
    כִּי שְׁקוּלָה הֲרִיגָתָם לְהִתְאַבֵּל וּלְהִתְעַפְרָה,
    כִּשְׂרֵפַת בֵּית אֱלֹקינוּ הָאוּלָם וְהַבִּירָה,
    וְכִי אֵין לְהוֹסִיף מוֹעֵד שֶׁבֶר וְתַבְעֵרָה,
    וְאֵין לְהַקְדִּים זוּלָתִי לְאַחֲרָהּ,
    תַּחַת כֵּן הַיּוֹם לִוְיָתִי אֲעוֹרְרָה,
    וְאֶסְפְּדָה וְאֵילִילָה וְאֶבְכֶּה בְּנֶפֶשׁ מָרָה,

    Supply and demand.

    Maybe the question is on us – why don’t we value our children’s Jewish education enough to pay their rebbeim and moros a fair wage commiserate with the value they are providing?

    As far as part time=low salary, tell that to professional athletes who work half a year and get paid millions.

    Instead of bashing those who may very well be the ticket to our Olam Habo, perhaps learn to appreciate the tremendous skill and dedication which the vast majority of mechanchim bring.

    BTW, most mechanchim I know take summer jobs out of financial necessity, despite the fact that the intense nature of their jobs takes an emotional and physical toll well beyond the hours they spend in the classroom, and they could really use the break to recharge.

    in reply to: Yeshiva Tuition – question for executive directors #1565298

    DaasYochid ☕

    Parents send their kids to yeshiva because they don’t really have a choice.

    I think one could have a better attitude and view it as a privilege to give one’s children a Jewish education.

    Of course, it is an obligation as well, but still, why does that put the impetus on the schools?

    Someone gave an analogy of an ice cream store. Ok, poor analogy, because ice cream is a luxury, and a Jewish education is a necessity.

    How about a grocery, a landlord, a clothing store, etc.? Are they required to operate at a loss because they deal in necessities?

    Tuition is, for many families, a tremendous financial burden, and people are frustrated. I get that. But it’s really unfair to bad-mouth the mosdos which actually do give many parents breaks and educate their children for below the actual cost, because of a misguided perception that they are obligated to swallow even more.


    Should parents have less kids because yeshiva costs are too high?

    Someone making that choice depends on their level of bitachon. Hashem prepares the finances for each child as they’re born.

    According to an old NYT article, in the view of Dr. Max Weinreich, who “notes that Yiddish includes a few words from Old Italian and Old French…, Yiddish was invented by Jews who had arrived in Europe with the Roman army as traders, later settling in the Rhineland of western Germany and northern France. Mixing Hebrew, Aramaic and Romance with German, they produced a unique language, not just a dialect of German.”

    Kof K says the same.

    The South African Beis Din doesn’t allow it.

    Many Israeli hechsherim don’t allow it.

    In any case Im not looking to prove how great the Rebbe is our the nevuos he said that came true –

    That’s a really bad idea to call his predictions nevuah. If his predictions were nevuah, he was a navi sheker ch”v, because some did not come true, most notably the immediate arrival of Moshiach.

    By the 90s, the Rebbe told us the world is all ready for the Geula, everything that was needed has been accomplished, and the only thing he could think of why were still in golus is because it has to come from us!

    He should have reconsidered his thought that everything that was needed had been accomplished.
