    “until the world lost its mind”

    styles are constantly changing, what was considered respectable 100 years ago is not necessarily what is considered respected now just like clothes from 200 years ago wasnt respectable 100 years ago. In the last few years especially jeans has become a perfectly acceptable style of clothing for everyday use. The only argument against yeshiva bochurim wearing jeans is that its not the accepted uniform plain and simple. It is possible to wear a nice pair of jeans and look just as respectable as someone wearing dress pants. Nobody’s trying to nitpick just stating the facts

    “Shemona essray takes a few mins, the ambulance takes a few mins, no difference!”

    @syag Lchochma- while what your saying makes sense in theory, its not so practical. If your wife is calling you over and over when shes nine months pregenant during shemonah esrei would you really say ill call her back because she can just call hatzolah so she doesnt need me? If your wifes calling you, for her sake, and not your own self-rightous davening habits, you should probably answer. Better to be safe then sorry. If your willing to take a chance that its not an emergency then you can wait….but if it was my wife i know what i would do

    ive had to stop for reasons other than that but i cant go into details. Sometimes there are extenuating circumstances that play a factor

    @more_2 “Would you seriously answer your phone in the middle of shemonei esray if your wife was in her ninth month and was ringing without stopping?!?! Think about it you are davening to the melech malchai hamlochim, so myanswer would be shes in the best of the best hands… Hashem is babysitting her for you. What do you guys think?

    If you are davening to hashem nothing will happen until you are finished.

    That’s my answer.

    So I hold, turn off your cellphone!!!”

    question for you. If your wife was in your ninth month and ringing without stopping would you really ignore it? maybe you have more emunah than me, or your just dumber….either way i feel bad for your wife

    SO at the end of the day whats better, untucked white shirt black pants (b/c tucked in white shirt is obviously the best), dressy jeans (because normal jeans are obviously the worst), or cargo pants

    PBA- haha regardless of gadol or not gadol. of course your free to disagree with anyone. I do it all the time

    Logican- The emphasis was that you dont know him so dont assume he is a clown ( and he didnt say that hes a clown).

    And your right about him laughing if he knew people were calling him a gadol….however its my personal opinion.

    “I don’t really think the gadol question is worth discussing. Nobody is going to convince me that anyone on the roundtable cast is a gadol”

    i have to disagree with you on this one. As you said yourself you don’t know any of them so please dont be so quick to judge

    Logican- do you not see the difference between calling someone a gadol and a clown…in case you dont ones nice and ones not….im basing this on the premise that were all basically good people who try not to rip on others

    regardless of what anyone may say it is possible to wear jeans and be a frum jew, In fact its very common. Certain communities like to make everyone wear the same style clothing but sometimes people get too caught up in “dressing like a ben torah”. Being in yeshiva and wearing black and white does not make a person a true ben torah. Serving hashem the correct way does regardless of whether you wear jeans or dress pants. It doesnt reflect the inside of a person

    Yes calling someone gadol is a subjective statement. That is my point exactly. but it seems like according to you, you shouldnt ever say anything that is subjective?

    Rav Bender is not simply a elementary school principal he is a rosh yeshiva for the biggest yeshiva in the United States…I disagree with your statement on the concept of a gadol. Calling a person a “gadol” is a subjective statement. Instead of getting caught up in the precise defintion, what matters is that he is a special person and not simply a “clown”

    Do you really think Rav —-


    believes emotional abuse is ok?

    I don’t know him, except by the stuff he writes. And I don’t really keep track of what he write from yated to yated.

    Just to get your idea straight: So I am not supposed to criticize any school principal?

    These people are not gedolim. They are at best nice principals, and at worst clowns”

    @PBA im very aware of the high status you have acheived blogging however you are dead wrong on this one. Some of these people are gedolim, if you know anything about Rav Yaakov Bender you would know he is not simply a “nice principal” but a tremendous gadol in the community of Far Rockaway. Please think before you say anything negative about such a person whom you’ve clearly never met
