    welcome back chayav!

    you’re the man (or woman?)

    in reply to: Rav Chaim Pinchos Scheinberg & Baseball #867063

    “D. Dovshtein: A man learning Torah 12 solid hours every single day or a woman doing Bikur Cholim 12 solid hours every single day is both a mitzvah and a madreiga.

    Don’t ever tell anyone not to learn 12 hour every single day or not to do Bikur Cholim 12 hours every single day.”

    Shaychus to anything I said? (besides the fact that you’re wrong)

    in reply to: Rav Chaim Pinchos Scheinberg & Baseball #867061

    RABBAIM- So how come prishus is the 13th perek of msilas y’sharim coming after z’hirus, z’rizus, and n’kiyus? and it’s linked with chasidus (going lifnim mishuras hadin)?

    Maybe do some research before rattling off mitzvos out of context.

    13th perek look it up.

    Prishus is a madreiga. It’s something you do when you’re holding by it, not like tzitzis and t’filin that you do no matter what.

    in reply to: Quality of language in YWN comments and postings #866939

    Agreed but besides the grammalicious quality of language –

    People should watch the mussar and menchlichkiteness of their speech. Just because it’s not in person and you’re speaking with a fake name doesn’t mean you could insult people and make them feel bad. THINK before you speak (and you even have a few seconds after with the ‘edit’ button)

    in reply to: Rav Chaim Pinchos Scheinberg & Baseball #867056

    Umm no sorry incorrect that’s a fallacious deduction.

    A person “need not strive” for PRISHUS until he’s holding on the madraga for it.

    in reply to: Is smoking mutar? #954577

    Sorry about the cynicism, and I don’t smoke so this is not getting defensive. I just think it’s pretty ridiculous to have a thread with everyone making up their own “opinions in halacha” about an issue that the g’dolim have already dealt with.

    in reply to: Rav Chaim Pinchos Scheinberg & Baseball #867052

    Shmoel – who said he was happy about finally getting the “TUMAH” of professional sports out of his heart?? (I think you made up the “tumah” part) Maybe he was just happy to have the ‘distraction’ out, or to reach a level of Prishus and Kedusha of having a heart fully devoted to Avodas Hashem.

    That’s why I think this story is not necessarily a proof that no one should ever start following sports. For some people it’s good to follow sports. It’s a raya that when you’re a gadol on R’ Scheinberg’s level, then, you should be happy to not be following sports.

    in reply to: Is smoking mutar? #954576

    Oh you’re right!

    The Gadol Hador must have missed that step!

    Quick call him up!

    Sorry, I apologize, he must have been “mis-informed” (That’s the great heter going around nowadays for everything right?)

    in reply to: Is smoking mutar? #954573

    The little I know – please provide your sources.

    From R’ Elyashiv: It’s assur to *start* smoking (because sakana), but once someone is addicted, it is a tzorech for him so then it is not assur.

    Background: The Noda B’yehuda was asked if hunting is mutar; he said no because there are many accidents, so it’s a sakana. But, if it is a tzorech for someone (i.e. his parnasa) then it is no longer assur. So too, someone that is addicted to smoking has a tzorech to smoke so it’s muttar.

    Why dont we make a shiduch in the coffee room!?

    in reply to: Anxiety-And Symptoms #795294


    I 100% agree with most of what you said and ur general suggestion, but:

    “No one ever would tell a diabetic that their illness comes from a lack of Bitachon.”

    Thats because diabetes is a physical problem. Anxiety is a mental problem with physical symptoms; therefore, (in limited situations, I agree) it could be dealt with on working on bitachon, which is a mental thing.

    in reply to: Anxiety-And Symptoms #795289

    lol no they talk about emotional health too dont worry. I agree with u totally i was just suggesting internalizing those things cuz sometimes, in some situations that is what works. Therefore I was just suggesting it here because different ppl are working with different issues and this tactic may work for some.

    And stam, bitachon’s always comforting along the path because other processes may be longer, so bitachon keeps ur head up and mind focused

    in reply to: Anxiety-And Symptoms #795287

    PBA: I hear wat your saying, but i have been told one time when i was anxious that its a lack of bitachon. I dont think its a stira; you can fight anxiety/nervousness by either uprooting the core cause of it like an emotional deep insecurity, etc. or by bitachon or covering it up with just getting used to it. (I’m dealing mostly with speaking in front of ppl / a person)

    in reply to: Wheres knish? #763181

    ya i agree that ‘welcome’ made our humble coffee room seem like an exclusive business meeting that u cant speak up in unless u’v been there for ten yrs.

    in reply to: Anxiety-And Symptoms #795277

    Ya i also have really bad nervous/anxiety issues. (not sure what the difference is if anyone wants to fill that in for me??)

    Never heard of these tapes – what are they and where do i get them? and for how much $? (are they jewish or stam?)

    I believe (I’ve been told) really focusing on bitachon, ain od milvado, Hashem will NEVER EVER EVER let you down and will ALWAYS do the BEST thing for you whether you DESERVE IT OR NOT can help these situations… cuz after all is there anything to be nervous about? ur like a child being held my its mother-obviously ur mothers gona take care of all ur needs.

    Also focusing on ha’olom hazeh domeh l’frozdor and everything’s just a dream world here and nothing(like embarrassment etc) really matters because this worlds not the ikur, can help. Imagine ur on a boat to an island where ur gona stay forever. if u travel in first classic cruise, u’ll be simple on the island. but if the ride is hard work and u travel in the lowest of the low – on the island ull be THE MAN. obviously u wouldn’t care if u were traveling in the sewers if u just thought about that for a second!

    But obviously thats MUCH MUCH easier said than done, it requires hours of mussar b’hispaalus ‘n stuff

    in reply to: purim songs and poetry #747112

    Ttto: one day (4purim)

    In bed I lay

    Its shachris soon

    I just thank g-d I’m breathin

    Then I say

    Just hit the snooze

    cuz I’m goin back to sleepin

    Sometimes rebbi gets fed-up

    But I never let ’em wake me up

    And then negativity erupts

    They hope one day that we’ll all show up

    but I say:

    All my life iv been prayin for

    Iv been waitin for, for the people to say

    That we won’t wake u up no more

    We’ll just let u snore

    Just keep dreamin away

    One dayyyy one dayyy one dayyy

    in reply to: purim songs and poetry #747111

    So anyways practice in advance

    And diet too be able to fit in tite pants

    Don’t eat all month save ur calries for drank

    And stay up all nite thinkin of the r”ch prank

    in reply to: Limericks! #1221298

    sorry im not exactly sure if this is the right thread for my songs… im not exactly sure what the rules of “limericks” are

    in reply to: Limericks! #1221297

    And this is a hakaras hatov song to my yeshiva/rebbi:

    Thru the years and all the times

    I just can’t seem to speak my mind

    To express wats going on inside

    Wen I think about the place

    The fun and challenges we faced

    Iv found the treasure where my heart resides


    Dear rebbi u hav taught me evrything I kno

    From amelus batorah and developing midos

    Ratzon and bitachon and my job in this world

    Rebi ul be always in my heart and soul

    The back and forth evryday

    Sugyas challenged in every way

    Developing our true Yiras hashem

    Hashkafa mussar how to live

    To learn to grow and mostly to give

    Connecting with emotions once again

    in reply to: Limericks! #1221296

    This has similar ideas but its not the song:

    Just can’t seem to figur things out

    Things aren’t rollin the way they shud

    Minds all clouded I duno wat its about

    Heads on fire I wud smile if I cud

    Ain Od Milvado He’s got it in control

    U just do his ratzon and then things roll

    Ur heating depression is His fleeting test

    Evry little thing that happens is the best

    UR best interest not anyone beside

    Give it some thot let ur heart decide

    It won’t take long

    To realize ur wrong

    And all thots are long gone

    Except for one song…

    Ain od milvado hashem is one and true

    And His entire world was created just for you

    All the mountains and the trees

    And that perfect cool breeze

    Its all from the One

    All for You- his precious son

    2 dallas to ZA

    From milwakee to the Qween

    Wata scene kno wat I mean??

    Fleishix-pizza, playin ball?

    Indoor outdoor wats the call

    Ideas bouncin off the walls

    But in the end it all just falls

    Knokin down the list 1by1

    Wat not to do wat won’t be fun

    & the nite wastes into lines n rhymes

    But the hack itself creates good times

    in reply to: Limericks! #1221295

    Heres a song im working on, it has a tune but i cant exactly post that:

    Ur on a boat its on its way

    To paradise not far away

    To remain ther for eternity

    If u sit in the first class

    With pleasures no one can surpass

    Wen u arrive u will live simply

    But if u ride with nothing

    On the island u will be a king

    The choice is urs – where do u take ur seat?


    This world is one big hallway Wer only passing thru

    Nothing that u have here Comes with you

    U do ur hishtadlus Hashem covers the rest

    The only goal we have here Is to stand thru every test

    Motor cruise ships left and rite

    Seem to carry thru the nite

    But wen they fail – they sink in sea

    If u don’t give in to the urge

    Ur little boat will not submerge

    Just set ur sail – the wind comes naturally
