Try sam’s club or bj. It’s about $300 for the trampoline and $150 for the net-which is an absolute must. Get the 16′ diameter.
crazybrit-I assune you mean divrei hamaschil-as in the words starting with.
divrei hamaskil would be more like a quote from Herzl or Mendelsohn.
I wonder if Nasi would pay a guy 14k to marry a 29 yr old and spare all the to do with a shadchan.
It wa$ great having you at our $imcha.
Seriously, mention in casual conversation that you hope they got your invitation in the mail, because several invitations came back return to Sender and you weren’t sure if theirs was one of them.

Why worry about his kashrus-you don’t plan on eating there?
oh, I get it, it’s litoeles harabbim-you’re worried about others!
you’re right no one should go.
But wait, what about minyan?
simple-organize a group, caterer, safer torah, baal korah pay for it…
and let everyone join your minyan for free.
Sorry Bowwow you’re barking up the wrong tree.
sushe-I’m not sure if your question is sincere or sarcastic but either way there’s no exact science, usually it would have to be by word of mouth from people-more than 1 or 2-with first hand experience dealing with that rov-not from fans who are gushing about him but have never actually worked with him on sensitive situations.
I just had a situation where a rov was rodef me,falsely quoting a gadol against me, he got a second rov involved who later admitted then he went along lishem shamayim without doing any factual research. I contacted rabbonim who knew the story well and who quickly approached the gadol who confirmed that I was in fact the victim in this case. The 2nd rov backed down and apologized admitting his naivete, but much damage was done in the interim and the point remains that one must choose his rov carefully. I know of many stories where a rov either sided with an abusive husband or gave the wife foolish and irresponsible advice. Choose a rov carefully is all I and other posters are saying.
Actually it’s insulting, not amusing. S/o should speak to artscroll. Tribe evokes images of barbarians in loincloth.
“DO NOT SPEAK TO A RAV.”
Whoa-That needs some tweaking.
A respected and experienced rov can be your greatest asset, however choose your rov wisely, because the wrong rov can end up being a resource for your husband and a nightmare for you. Many, many rabbonim get their position because they know how to learn and are strong personalities, and people are enamored by them, but in truth they may lack sensitivity, judgement and sometimes character. proceed with caution, do your research,look before you leap.
If you tell us which area you live in or next to, we can suggest some rabbonim that are qualified for this kind of situation.
Also, all his stressful situations may be rooted in a deficiency in knowing how to deal with people and situations properly, so by getting him to a therapist you may be killing 2 birds with one stone.January 8, 2012 7:24 am at 7:24 am in reply to: Winter Vacation & Minyan Problem- your opinion please #842401
It don’t sound kosher to me. I agree with Aries’ sentiments. You may want to contact the caterer and ask if he is ok with you paying a smaller amount for only benefitting from the minyan etc. I am willing to bet that he can get you a room for the same price as you would get on your own since he is doing this a s a group, and he would make a profit. You can also ask him if you can pay per meal should you change your mind and decide you are sick of tuna sandwiches. Enjoy your vacation- and if you don’t mind please tell me where this is-I’m looking for a place to take my family.
The first question here is does he even acknowledge that there is a problem? Does he want to change?
And if he is no good-which may be the case, then it is even more so that you need to have a psychological advantage over him. He needs to know that there are askanim involved, you are not alone and vulnerable, you can and will stand up and fight for yourself. Your kids need to be out of the emotional and physical reach of your husband ASAP, and askanim should make therapists available to them and to you to speak to whenever they need.
It is important for you to realize that your husband is an insecure, person. Faulting you and not being able to find anything to compliment you for reflects poorly on him not on you.
Also, take pictures of the bruises and record a conversation with your daughter describing what happened. You should also record one of his outbursts. In many states this is legal and admissible in court.

Maybe you are a pleasant mix:)
Either way, you have a good point-which I am perpetuating.
Mods please correct my post. it’s supposed to say make up.
My family invented a new fast paced draidel game that’s loads of fun.
You will need a lot of draidels for this. Here’s how it goes:
Each player gets 5 draidels. On go you start spinning all 5 draidels , and you cannot allow more than 2 draidels to be down at once. As one falls or starts slowing down you have to pick it up and respin it to keep it going. Who ever keeps it going longest wins,
Another version is to spin as many draidels at once as possible-as soon as one falls you stop and count how many you had going at once. Who ever gets the most wins.
Goq-your posts always give me a great laugh-thanks!
always- it could have been worse. My wife once found our 3 year old with all her expensive make all over the floor and my daughter’s face. It was a funny sight, if it hadn’t been so expensive.
Congrats Gumball!!!! Will you learn punctuation by any chance??????
BTW I think LOL is becoming an official word in Websters English dictionary, and whatever has been officially recognized as a noun, verb and adjective.

ha ha – is Popa your brother?
In the picture of him he looks like a druggie and the picture he posts of himself is meant to represent what he stands for and who he is. He also mentioned that he took on too many restrictions-which,without clarification, sounds like prikas ohl. Then he mentions going to daven and the mikvah. He should be transparent about where he stands. Transparency has to do with honesty and whether he is on or off the derech I’m sure he can agree that we must all be honest and unambiguous about where we stand.
coffee addict-“Personally I don’t think he’s good for yiddishkeit to begin with (there actually was a story…”
Coffee-you are usually such a positive person that this post seems out of character.
There was a national nightly show that had Mattisyahu as a guest and they asked him about shabbos, and when he told them emphatically that he would not do a performance on shabbos they asked him what if the contract was for $1,000,000,000 and he said he still wouldn’t, and I think that was a kiddush Hashem.
If his shaving his beard is not symbolic of where the rest of his yiddishkeit is going and he is still shomer torah umitzvos, then he is to be commended, because I believe he serves an important purpose.
real israeli-Thank you. Great story. Puts things into perspective. I feel motivated to say asher yatzar with kavanah.
BTW, I have Yeshivah net, which allows YWN but not google etc.
Is there a hotel near a ski place where frum yiddin get together- no official caterer or anything, just individuals who arrange a sefer torah, their own food etc and ski on Friday and Sunday?

Glatt is a borrowed term which evolved from it’s original meaning and implies extra strict hashgacha. Ask your off the D friend if he ever used the word “walkman” on brands other than sony and there are many other such examples.
Michitin-there’s no word like it in English.

originial thinker-“Stories like Moshe Dayan”
Moshe Dayan left his faithful wife for a newer model, and when he died, he left his first wife’s house which she inherited from her father to his second wife leaving his first wife and children destitute. He was promiscuous. I can continue on with your other “role models” but you get the picture. Please, we have so many beautiful role models from our gedoloim, why choose this shmutz.
How inspirational. Thank you. May you be zocheh to build a bais ne’eman bi’yisroel
This is a very real and very serious issue. Not only can the parents not afford it, they are setting a high standard of life style for their children without a hope of helping them live that life style. They are setting them up for disappointment. It is hypocritical and goes against the message of what mesiras nefesh for yiddishkeit is, what ehrlechkeit is. It negates “der poshutah yid”. It sends our children a terrible message of where our priorities lie. And even people who would not ordinarily follow such practices are sucked into it because they don’t want to look like the beggars on the block.
WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT THIS?
Toi-“shticky- i think the best would be “as an aside”
“i thought to save was ratevven? “
ratevven is to save from harm or more precisely to rescue, ahnshpurin is to save money, as in by buying in bulk men kehn ahnshpurin asach gelt.

BaalHabooze-“(HATE that word!)”
IM not so HO it is derogatory and should not be used, especially in front of children. “Meshulach” is appropriate and bikuvidik. If s/o cannot afford to give, they are not absolved from treating another human being with respect and dignity, especially those less fortunate than us.
If only s/o could infiltrate their ranks and start chanting gibberish and see if they chant along.

is 4 cigars a day dangerous?
I assume you mean cigarettes. It’s not considered a lot, but is still unhealthy.:(

As George Burns said at his 100th birthday-My Dr told me smoking is dangerous. He’s dead, and I’m still smoking!
