Ashkenazi is most defiantely not exclusive to Ashkenazim.
Three of my Syrian friends’ last names are Ashkenazi.
I took a baking class at The Center for Kosher Culinary Arts on Coney Island Avenue. It was fun and informative.
Definately check the place out. Their recreational classes are mixed gender, but the ongoing classes are separate.
Have fun 🙂
Well, I always wear wellies, but my lil sister stole them before I woke up.
And so, alas, I forged ahead into the open world without proper footgear.
Thank you peeps!
Between 10:00 and 10:30, Brooklyn experienced heavy rainfall (and I mean HEAVY), in which I was caught, sans umbrella.
You know what crossed my mind first? This thread I started yesterday! So I decided to put my own question to test. And guess what? I just splashed through the huge pools collecting at every street corner, let my freshly done hair get soaked, and let my new leather shoes shrink temporarily.
And I smiled to myself 🙂
Those facts and things about rain are really nice! Thanks!
Look, I get why you feel annoyed that the asifah was in Yiddish, but can I know why the fact that someone talks a certain language within their home and community bothers you so much?
Just live and let live, my good people!
Oh, dont be so square! Go ahead and enjoy your promotional-freebie-slurpee 🙂
No offense, but kids at teachers weddings are a bummer. They are active at the wrong times(chuppah), and they stand around whispering and staring during the dancing.
Russel Peters hands down, my friends.
Isn’t she/he someone you might eventually think of marrying?
Don’t ask US for help.
Get help from a professional therapist. He or she can get you to manage your anxiety and live life stress-free.
Also, check out some breathing exercises you can do if you feel the anxiety builing up.
Best of luck.
What a way to lose your appetite.
May this be your only dilemma.
Why all the labeling?
Live and let live, my friends.
In most cases, stereotyping can lead to Lashon Hara, even if its unintentional.
Wow. Could a thread be any more stereotypical this?
I was wondering, do any of you wear a shirt or tie that has large parts that are covered with a paisley pattern?
If you do wear a top like that, why do you think it is OK as far as attractiveness goes?
If not, why not?
No way! Really?
I understand that you can assume these things, but what say you to the idea that I am a male with a personality disorder? (Not the case…Or IS it…? Mwahaha.)
Seriously though, there are weirdo people out there (even on frum websites), so don’t be so eager to give out your info.
Listen to me good: Find someone who loves you, who is interested in you and who can help you. You should talk to someone, not email a stranger!
Best of luck and just remember: you are not alone in your plight, so try and get ahold of a trustworthy adult to help you get through your difficulties.
How on earth can you know if another poster is the same gender as you?
Actually, I can’t tell you the medical background for this, but I’ve heard a few times that the heavier you are, the faster you shed weight.
As you lose the weight, and your body settles into the routine of dieting and exercise, losing weight takes longer.
Dont be naive.
Us girls have had many instances in our teenage years in which we were less than proud of ourselves too.
What you should do is this: BE HONEST. Did you do anything that if you had heard this about her, you would break it off? Then tell her! She has every right to know!
We all went through that phase and stage in which we have made undesirable choices, but get over it! You have matured, and hopefully she will see that in you and get past it too.
Thank you guys!
So here’s the deal:
I’m probably not maiking an Aliya. It just disturbs things for us later on if we want to move back to the States.
I don’t think we’ll travel to Turkey, even for a short stop. I’m pretty sure it’s on the dont-fly-there-because-of-the-terrorists list 🙂 But who knows right? Do they have nice honeymoon spots?
Yes, I know there are perfectly great things in Israel, which is why I’m obviously buying a lot there. But tell me this: Do they sell fine quality china with US prices? How about Corelle? Silverware?
I speak a flawless Hebrew and I am iy”H moving to the heart of Yerushalayim! Whoo hoo!
I like that idea about calling El Al in advance! Do you know how much in advance is required?
People keep saying that, and I smile and nod knowingly to mask my ignorance, but how do I go about that? Who do I contact?
Actually I’m moving right after I get married, but I’m still unsure about making Aliya.
I don’t either think that a second siutcase will cut it…
Ok, ok, i know i said all ideas are welcome, but really!
I need serious ideas. Like, dishes and clothes and pots and and and and…I gotta schlep all of that stuff! HOW???
Many guys do pilates.
It’s a great form of exercise, working on strenghthening your body, flexibilty and endurance.
Do you like his voice? Then he’s good.May 1, 2012 12:58 am at 12:58 am in reply to: Did I ever tell you about the time I almost got gored by a bull? #874119
“he was threatening to bash it down now”
Can you tell me what my goldfish thinks? He (or she) seems upset sometimes too and I’m afraid he might just come CRASHING through the oh-so-thin glass that seperates me from him.
Wow, this is a tough situation.
My friend has this all the time at work. She is afraid to wear anything new or different, because of the slew of comments that would follow. I had to beg her to get a haircut!
You know what? You are your own person! Be strong and do your own thing man! Just smile when the commentary begins and show your self-confidence.
This sounds like a complicated situation, but standard advice for people with anxiety:
Breathing exercises (google it)
Read the book “Letting Go of Stress”, by Miller E.
Try and get good professional help.
Empty room, translated siddur and the understanding that davening is a fundamental way to strengthen your belief and love for Hashem.
Remember: It’s the ULTIMATE connection to your creator!
I don’t think there is a fair way to grade the current chinuch situation. All that I know, is that I’ve had many teachers and mechanchos throughout my “career” as a Bais Yaakov student.
I’ve known some mechanchos who were terrible role models and teachers.
Then again, there were many treasured lessons and inspiring teachers who helped mold who I am today.
Remember: No system is perfect, and there’s always room for correction.
I am honored.
Is there a ritual I need to undergo? A contract of sorts I must sign?
Guys, a segulah doesn’t “work” or “not work”. Hashem works!
Yes, there are amazing segulos with real mekoros, but always remember where the yeshuah is REALLY coming from!
I understand the tremendous chizuk you are getting, but some of the ideas presented here are detrimental for teens who need guidence and love.
As long as you have appropriate help other than from your friends at the CR, then by all means, keep posting.
Oh come on. That’s a utopian idea, if I ever heard one.
Listen, we are visiters in America and don’t you forget that. Just look both ways before you cross the street on Shabbos, and pray for the Geulah soon!
write or wrong: I really hope you’re not taking any advice from the faceless strangers here. Please go to a frum, trustworthy Rabbi and therapist for help and opinions!
Please! Get advice from people who truly care!
May Hashem listen to all the prayers of mothers with searching children.
I had Sunday school through 11th Grade. So, girls do have school on Sunday. I guess it depends on which school your talking about.
Oh wow I always do that after the guy who has the best chair leaves. But I always make sure to return it before i leave so he doesn’t know. No harm done.
In your situation: Is he a veteran in your office? Are you the rookie at your job? Who’s older? I’m pretty sure these things matter.
Maybe we’re not shy. Maybe your are just being overly nosy. That’s one possibility.
My sister was the queen of all those people who say , “Oh I would never name my kid something mean”, and guess what? A few short years later, she is happily married and goes and names her daughter- well, not Yenta, but something to that effect. So, never say never.
Maybe try to stop eating your favorite ice cream?
Hey I always hated that smell too! Smells a bit like a dirty diaper.
But listen, if its not your car, you cant dictate what someone eats in it. If it is your car, then you can tell them politely that you hate the smell.
Mod-42: Uuuuh, yeah. You funding that?April 26, 2012 2:58 am at 2:58 am in reply to: S(h)morgasbord. Love it. Love the word. Whats your favorite? #873494
I like the word frothy. Like a frothy milkshake. Yummerz.
I’m having Esa Einai by Shalsheles at my wedding iy”H.
