While you’re thinking about that one, here’s another Q:
We may not put milchig and fleishig on the table at the same time unless you have a heker or it is far enough from each other that you cannot reach(similar to niddah). Why than do we not have those same restrictions in regard to fish and meat, especially in light of the fact that chamirah sakantah meisurah?
Ahhhright, so long as you are not cranky.
“What tells you that Nosen Taam of a person is Assur?”
Why not-it’s not nosen taam lifgam?
“Although, I think you’re right about the being alive. It’s not meat.”
A-who says it’s not meat.(you happen to be right but you failed to back it up with any explanation or mekor)
B-Whether it’s classified as meat or not has no relevance to this shailah because either way it’s not kosher(no split hooves and in most cases, not a vegetable)
C-Even if you disagree with B(I don’t see how)at the very least, it’s aiver min hachai
“if a pig stuck its foot in it would also be kosher.” Are you sure about that?
GumBall-that can happen when you laugh while chewing gum.
Can anybody make a sentence using only-or mostly-vernacular?
WADR, IOW translation please?
ZK go to sleep-it’s past your bedtime!
choc-Great story-I thought only guys call it a bais haKisai because that is the gemara lushon.
I know s/o who ran into a shul in desperation and asked someone eifo habeis hakisai- some one brought him a chair.
If you look closely at the book she is holding it says bais yaakov lchu vinailchuh. Amazing.
btw, that very moving poem you refer to (the huddled masses) was composed by a Sfardic Jewish woman (I believe of Iraqi descent) who was up till that time unheard of. It was submitted in a contest. She won against the famous poets of her time(I believe Jack Frost may have been one of them if my memory serves me correctly). I can’t access google-anyone know what the full poem is?
coffee-you were demoted? My condolences. Perhaps, one day you will merit reclaiming memberhood. 🙂
cuc-we are proud members!!!
“We are machmir like both shittos,” both shittos agree that is muttar if you never saw where the blood spot was(and it mixed w 2 other eggs).
I have a question for you:
If you stick your hand in the chulent pot while it is yad soledes bo (you wanted to get that piece of flanken before s/o else gets to it and you didn’t realize that the chulent was still hot) Does your chulent become treif?
When Osama got up there, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson etc. greeted him wielding batons and beating him. When he started yelling for his promised paradise they responded “here we are , your 72 Virginians”
whome-I had a different version of that lady on the bus story but the mods wouldn’t let it through. I guess your version was more tolerable. I’ll bet the mods laughed harder at my version though.
How many newly arrived bucherim came to Israel thinking that a bathroom is called a bais hakisai? 🙂
Shticky-?? ?? ?????? ???? .=He has fat fingers
???? ????? ???? ???? Where is your forehead
??? ?? ?? ????? ???Do you have a milk shake
stuffed-there are some who will not read about the holocaust because it’s “scary stuff”-you ok with that?
always runs with scissors fast-First of all Mazal tov. May you have tons of yiddishi nachas. Zulsti interfirin alleh kinder inter di chippi gizintiheit.
Some people you just can’t explain. So, when you recognize that you are in for the 3rd degree, why not try to turn the conversation around. wait for her to take a pause(usually to catch her breath) and ask her about herself. Most people(especially the type you just described)just love to talk about themselves. In fact they are infatuated. Let them drone on for a few minutes while you go about your business, make sure to say uhu once every 60-90 seconds and then tell her you’re really charmed but unfortunately you gotta run. Ahh, the beauty of the telphone.
Cucumber-:) I got member too. What a coincidence. And I love it too. Kinda gives me that cozy warm feeling inside. Maybe all poor posters with silly subtitles will one day earn their membership as well.
Coffee- take heart, you too will be a member one day.
It used to be considered improper to pick ones nose but evidently that is no longer the case.
Dip a cloth in lukewarm soapy water and clean thoroughly. If it’s acne try oxy 10.
How about an antique leather bound tehillim. (with interlinear translation)
Or a challah cover- judaica stores have really nice ones and it would enhance his shabbos table.
That is I read the first book. I cannot vouch for the second. I bought it but have not yet had a chance to read.
I read it-I let by oldest child read it. I think it helps bring an awareness and a sensitivity to a very serious issue that affect many in our community. The book is exceptionally well written. It is obviously not a children’s book, but I think it is appropriate for a teen. I’ll bet your friend does not feel the cr is appropriate. To each his own.
Junior Trivia-I skip the board and just let the kids answers all at once. It’s great on a long shabbos afternoon.
Choc- I shoulda known:)
geshmakebachur3- I never heard of such a thing. There is a collection every year to buy a chanukah present for the poskim in lakewood-they are so devoted to the klal. You may be referring to giving a present to a dayan that will be adjudicating a dispute you are involved in. Otherwise what could possibly be the problem? I doubt you need to worry that a posek will give you extra koolos because of your gift.
Yogi-kudos to you for being makir tov. Maybe ask his wife what her husband needs. Or ask the rav what his wife needs. She’s sacrificing too.
Mod 80-“tactless Israeli’s- let’s hear them speak Enlish”
“so whats the big deal i cant speak Enlish either.
what is that anyway? some elfish dialect from the hobbit or something?”
According to Webster’s Enlish dictionary it is a language that originated in Enland, spoken by the Enlish(named after their language) Do not feel bad if you are not fluent in Enlish. Rosetta Stone offers a course. A little practice and you’ll sound like a native.
BTW what’s a hobbit?
“When it comes to marriage, I couldn’t care less who your grandfather is.”
That is, unless gramps is moving in!:)
Wolf-“we are all proud that we are bnei avrohom yitzchok and yaakov.”
“Big deal. We all are. To paraphrase a movie line: “If everyone’s special then no one is.”
The Wolf “
We are merely .05% of the world population (if that). Our achievements in proportion to our numbers are staggering. Has that nothing to do with yichus? And no, not “everyone” is special(hence the hatred of the nations throughout history)
BTW do you shtomm from shvartzi wolf? Is that why you use the hei hayidiuh?
Please don’t tell anybody, I laugh at my own jokes. It would be ok if the other guy was laughing too. A blank stare don’t help much It’s ok though cause I find my jokes pretty funny. Here I go again. Another laughing spell.Gotta go.
A relative of mine was convinced that Israelis call “techina” “tahini”(maybe the labels in America read that way?). When she asked the guy at the falafal stand to put tahini in her falafal(the only 2 words in her hebrew vocabulary) they were howling with laughter(tactless Israeli’s- let’s hear them speak Enlish)
Let’s not pretend- we are all proud that we are bnei avrohom yitzchok and yaakov. If your father is famous or a millionaire it matters to you. If your father is a tzaddik that matters too, and it matters to a potential shidduch as well. There is something that gets passed along-either it’s zchus avos or genes or something. You find very often that greatness or wealth stays in a family. All things being equal, it’s definitely a major plus. Having said that, the first priority is that (s)he be a mentch. Avrohom Avinu was mishadech with besuel not because of his yichus-a better mechutan he could have found. It was the imahos’ middos that put them on top of the shidduch list.
ma ma ma=mother
ma ma ma ma=mother come fast!!!
So long as it’s not a four letter word?
Do onto others as you would have them do onto you. See pirkei avos for more moving tips.
Choc-“>And of course the classic: “ani lo tachas omed”
That took me a LONG time to work out”
It took me a while too, but now I tachas omed.
Gefen-“she turned around to the girls and said “mooo”
mooo is Japanese. It means what fine young ladies!:)
All seriousness aside, people should be more considerate. I hope they said slichah.
“Family time is NEVER counter-productive.” I’m sure Zahava agrees with that, but IDK…
“Something will come up” Good point-It’s 5:00 I’ll close up shop, get off the cr and head home.
Wolf- maybe your kids will have a good influence on you:)
Mod-Any job openings? I’ll settle for a beamer.
Goq- If I’d do it, it would be under the terms you described, but it’s really up to the school to decide if it is or is not a real holiday. I have to follow their rules, and my kids need to know that.
I am-that’s what i love about the cr. I can do my socializing virtually.:)
Adorable-thanx I think you may be right.
I spend a decent amount of time with them. Probably not enough, but they get my full attention when I am with them. We do a lot of family visiting which they love. We’re also big into outings but not much exciting trips, which the parade would be considered. I kinda would love to do it for them, but I wonder if ultimately it would be counterproductive. I will try to compensate by taking an outing.
Shrek- If I go I would probably do that but it still doesn’t cover all the issues.
“There was a “Chinuch Roundtable” in the Yated regarding this a while back; the panel was mixed.”
Which week? I would really be interested in seeing it.
“Who is this Miss Yeshiva?
What does she do?”
LOL! She’s on the mixed panel.
Thanks for all the advice. Against overwhelming odds to the contrary, I am leaning towards Daas’s view. They are boys and it involves bittul torah. I can’t imagine that the school would allow them to take off. At best, they would turn a blind eye. And I certainly would not allow my kids to lie about where they were. I can make it a point to spend quality time together-a fun outing, batting practice or something-after school, and bring them to a bonfire on motzei shabbos. I think the main thing that they will remember is that I gave them quality time and undivided attention, which I plan on doing.
Here’s a quote from R’ Avigdor Miller zt”l: (Not exatly on topic, but worth repeating)
When the sign on the store says come in and save, I stay out and save even more.
“I don’t know the charge for a phone consultation. “
It’s ok if she does-so long as her # doesn’t start with 1-900 😉
I had a relative (recently niftar) who did it for his immediate family. He was an exceptional yid and a talmid chacham. I never spoke to him about it, but there seems to be certain mekoros for similar things such as what coffee mentioned. Anyone know the mekor?
doodle-I’m with you-Le Chocolate (not the packaged brand in grocery stores- the one in Monsey and Deal) is $20 per lb and it’s is worth every penny. I love their pareve chocolate.
No worries-This thread is just warming up!!!
