We were married for a number of years before our first child, a girl, was born. My fellow mispallelim all expressed their joy with 1 exception. This person, who was probably spaced out asked me what the mazel tov was for, I said my wife gave birth to a girl. His response “such a fuss over a girl”.October 5, 2012 1:06 pm at 1:06 pm in reply to: Working parent letter: two implementable ideas I posted #899365
I’m going to say something radical. Why do yeshivas give off on Chanuka. Chanuka is a time to reinforce Torah.
I had a Rebbe who would give a Bain Hazimanim Shmuz. Before Chanuka, he would say “You are now going to be m’kayim the mitzvoh of L’hashgichom totosecha u’lhaviram mechukey retzonecho.
The Chofetz Chaim wrote a sefer for soldiers. One can and should reference that rather than paskening in the CR.

edited. I changed my mind about the links.
working harder- I am talking the difference between a wine glass filled with wine and a water glass filled with wine.
Let then eat cake.
I was at that wedding too. Not only was that tacky but the chossons friends showed excessive drinking and crude behaviour. I would like to know which Yeshivah this was as I will stay clear when looking for my daughters.
More- Could you please give your phone number. You seem to have a direct line with Hakodosh Boruch hu, and many people would like to speak with you.
A Kollel Yungerman told me he specifically stayed home so he could learn. He said most B’nai Torah in the US were at the siyum(A great Kidush Hashem,but not shteiging) , the B’nai Torah in the E’Y were sleeping and someone had to keep the world going.August 7, 2012 1:26 pm at 1:26 pm in reply to: Why was the National Anthem or G-D Bless Ameirica not sung by Siyum Hashas? #893621
If they would have sang the National Anthem, then some people would have expected the Israeli NA.
If anything would have happened we would know about it. PR is what they know.
Hey AZ, when are the shadchanim going to be paid for the shiduchim made over 4 years ago?
If they played 5 innings its an official game.
Someone who has gone through Shaas should know that a Talmud Chochom can distort the truth when it comes to advertising his learning.
To put it on your car or in your house is not befitting a Talmud Chochom.

I think I have connected the dots.
Limited names of Gedolim. Giving the impressions that this is for everyone’s good and then hitting their pockets.
Sponsors to cover the expenses.
Chofetz Chaim going.
The answer- The same people that have promoted the North American Shiduch Initiative.
I guess they need money since the first shiduch may be made.
Not only do I do laundry, but each of my sons had to show me their capability of doing laundry.
Will the real NASI please stand up.
First you promoted that boys date older girls and paid the shadchanim to promote it.
This received Rabbinical endorsements which you are still using to this day. (see recent ads in papers)
When you couldn’t find the money to honor those commitments, the project was abandoned and the parents were blamed.
Then you had merchants sponsor your organization.
Now you are run a program to get the girls or the parents to pay an outrageous amount, which has only been documented with anonymous accolades.
The time has come for the Rabbonim to close your organization down.
Shovovim ended Mishpotim. Shovovim Tat is only in a jewish leap year, not a secular one.
When this Zaidy was young and in Yeshivah, I went around before the Superbowl and asked who was interested in a minyan after the game(night seder was optional in my days as this was a college yeshiva).
A few bochrim attack me telling me I’m making a mockery of tefiloh b tzibur. I couldn’t get the minyan together so I missed part of the game to daven btzibur. The attack bochrim were no where to be found at maariv.
To answer the “let’s don lkav zechus” people. This was the early 70’s in Manhattan and there were not many minyonim in the neighborhood.
No we are at the end of Vayeilach.December 7, 2011 1:34 pm at 1:34 pm in reply to: If you've read "NASI Project Responds", have you changed your mind? #847949
This still does not answer the question asked by the shadchanim, who were promised a fee back in 2008, which has not been paid. They owe a lot of money to a lot of people.

This past Monday, the internet was down in my house. I spent the day in Starbucks, drinking coffee (first cup 1.63 small 2.12 medium reefills 50 cents). For under 5 bucks, I had internet all day plus coffee.
Without a suit.
My daughter had a date during the 9 days and my LOR paskened she should wear shabbos cloth.
When I put on a raincoat on my little daughter, she said “I look like a geek”.
My response- I rather be a dry geek than a wet non-geek.
My in-laws Alehem Hasholom, got married in Bergen Belsen in 1945, They would have been happy with hot dogs and hamburgers.
Some answers remind me of my high school days. We asked our Rebbe if we can go to the movies during sefirah and he said we’re allowed to go just like the rest of the year.
If you take 100 random people (say a shul) the odds are on your side that 2 people have the same birthday.
When I am in the situation, I have either brought my own food from a Kosher restaurant or brought a La Briut meal. I’d call the resturant in advance and tell them I eat Kosher. I would ask if they provide kosher meals (none have responded in the affirmative). They welcomed me (since I was part of a profitable group).

I heard a story where an older brother was having a hard time finding his bashert. His younger brother was redd a shiduch and asked the older brother for reshus, which was granted. A year later the younger brothers shvigger made a shiduch for the older brother.
If your at an internet cafe use, set up an account on googlephone.
There are toupes.
They are heterim to sit indoors w/o a head covering.
They are heterim to shave during sefirah.
This thread reminds me of an incident I had a few years ago. A prominent Rov in my neighborhood spoke about how the “casual look” at work is a yeridah in respect, kovod etc.
I pointed out to him (it was during sefirah) that this casual look in the office allows me to sit in a bank office with a yarmulke and sefirah beard.
There was no reply.
The answer to the question
How many descendants of Queen Elizabeth II are still married to their first spouse?
As of Friday 1.
And this is supposedly the choshuveh family of Great Britain.
Here is a Royal family trivia question.
How many descendants of Queen Elizabeth II are still married to their first spouse?
I’ll post the answer sometime tomorrow.
Here is a shiur on Rav Moshe’s Teshuva on Life Insurance
Much better than the NYC subways.
We was married for a number of years without children. When we were blessed with our first child a friend come to me with a hearty Mazel Tov. A bystander asks what the Mazel Tov was for so I said we had a girl. His response- A girl doesn’t get such a Mazel Tov. When I told him we were married a number of years he wanted to crawl into a hole for his comment.
Part of the problem is that for a boy to be a “good boy” he has to be in yeshiva(whether he is cut out to learn or not). For a girl to be a “good girl” she has to dress properly and act properly. It is probably easier to be a “good girl” than a “good boy”.
The solution is to create programs for boys who are not full time learners and then the girls will be willing to go out with them. I realize that for a Talmid Chochom to learn with 20 something working boys does not generate the kovod that a Rosh Yeshiva gets.
I just redd a shiduch between 2 24 year old 3rd cousins which was rejected for that reason.

how nout wedding anniverseries?? my husband says adar beis but i think he says that cus feels bad he might of forgotten
It depends if your anniversery feels like a birthday or a yarzeit.
I served on a tuition comitee and came across the following cases
1. People working in family businesses making “bubkes” but living well.
2 A person who’s husband I knew was self employed showing W2 forms and refusing to show tax return with Schedules A-C filled in
3. Someone who changed jobs the previous year and showed w2 form only from 1 employer.
This happened a number of years ago and I have not even mentioned these families to my wife.
When I have rejected these families on shiduchim, my wife doesn’t understand what is going on.
IMHO the reason 1 man bands have become more popular is because the quality of their music has improved over the past 10 years.

I am not a lawyer but the way I understand the law, it goes as follows. If with reasonable accomidation, the shift can be switched, then the employer is required to do so. An example that happened to me as a computer professional was that everyone had to be on call 1 week every 2 month (24/7) for problem solving. The company wouldn’t hire me because I could not be on call that 1 Saturday every 2 months. I argued that I could switch with someone and take Sunday. The hiring manager wouldn’t agree, but when I went to the head of Personnell, he almost killed the hiring manager.
Regarding Basar V’chalav with basar neveiloh you cannot guarantee that all the pet food comes from neveilo. The kosher slaughterhouses send their treifos (including sofek traifoh) and the hind of the animal to the Aino Yehudim for processing.
The Tzedokas have the legal right to call. Personally, I call back and waste their time. The store that call are calling with total disregard for the Do Not Call list. I am going to ask a shailah if I can take the business to secular court(small claims) and get a judgement against them. They will stop pretty fast.
