I think everyone has seen it- it was sort of public!
If they are searching for emunah in Hashem, they definitely should continue keeping the mitzvos.
It depends. If they truly want to believe in Hashem then they should listen to proofs from our side. Rabbi Orlofsky and Rabbi Lawrence Leib Keleman have some great shiurim on proving Hashem and the Torah, you can find them on torahanytime.
If someone doesn’t want to believe, then no one anyone says will convince them of anything.
Secular Frummy- Sorry, I read the question wrong. I thought you said mechalel shabbos b’farhesia…
I think the proof is there for anyone who is open to listen. Its actually quite obvious! But there are many reasons someone may not be keeping the mitzvos even though they believe. And I know a lot of people who are outwardly shomer torah umitzvos and are hiding that they are not frum.
Oh, cuz I didn’t really understand the question “So shomer shabbos b’farhesia is enough to be yotzei the minyan for kriyas hatorah?”
Well that person should be considerate of the other people and refuse to daven/read from the torah.
What about someone mechalel shabbos secretly- what happens with the wine in their house that isn’t mevushal?
Are you asking or telling?
But I do know people who dont like it though… I still can’t understand why.
So what is the answer to the original question?
Yes, if they are hiding that they don’t believe.
All I can say is practice, practice, practice!
Same here, coffee no longer has an effect on me. I usually just drink it for the taste.
Hey, you learn something new every day! Thanks sharp!
And thanks mod for the subtitle- makes me really feel part of the CR!
Loving my subtitle! Thanks! Shaychus Irish though?
So I guess I never asked nicely. Mods, please can you give me a subtitle?March 6, 2013 1:04 am at 1:04 am in reply to: Rather than Staring Blankly at the Four Walls, You… #934730
Stare at my computer.
Agree with just my hapence- Hermione says the Arithmancy is the hardest exam.
Well then apparently I don’t have much common sense 😉
Youre talking about the quiz on the bottom right? 10 questions?
In what sense- hard to get into? Very good name?
Did you take the grammar quiz on that website? Definitely showed me how little grammar I really know! Sort of burst my bubble, but oh well.
Controversial topics definitely!! Or interesting titles…
Didn’t even see my welcome until now.. Thanks! 😉
Well they say its really complex to become an Animagus and very few underage wizards achieve it. Maybe part of the complexity is doing the magic without a wand.
I’m actually not quite sure how they are dealt with- possibly sensory integration therapy? OT? I dont really know..
Yes, thanks! 😉
Many people give children away but usually only in the communities where that is encouraged. There are families who are ashamed of their children. And there are many people who look down and children (and families) with special needs, so you can not blame the families!
Excuse me, but that is an absolutely untrue and offensive comment! Who said siblings will get “2nd tier” shidduchim?? There are MANY people who have siblings and are very happpily married even without the “huge positive”. I’d love to know where you got your info from!
So what do i have to do to get a surprise subtitle change?
The point of trying so hard is NOT to get hashem to answer your tefillos. You try hard for you.
Yes it is true- what you want may not be good for you. But as you grow what is good for you changes. So you may be davening for something and it wasnt being answered because it wasnt good for you. When you change, what is good for you changes too
I think Down Syndrome is less of an issue today… But theres still definitely lots of stigma!
Wow! Good luck!
Ohel Bais Ezra has sibling support groups- run very well! They combine activities, discussions, its a great way for kids to meet peers who also have sibs.

Misoponia definitely sounds more severe than sensory issues.
anon91- Regular things can bother someone with sensory issues. For example, the feeling of a clothing tag, or a strong smelling food. With sound, certain sounds will bother them very much. Sort of like the feeling people get when someone scratches a chalkboard for a long time- it bothers you tremendously and makes you tense and anxious. But with a regular sound- such as certain ringtones (different for each person)
Technically, there is little difference.
“Insanity, craziness or madness is a spectrum of behaviors characterized by certain abnormal mental or behavioral patterns”
There are many negative terms that were originaly clinical terms (mental, idiot, dumb,etc.)
The difference between saying retarded is that mental retardation is an actual diagnosis. Imagine if someone you know was diagnosed with MR and then you heard people throwing around the word retarded.
This btw, is the same thing as people saying I’m so OCD or ADD. It is very offensive to people who actually have those or know those who do!
Can you explain the difference between this and sensory problems? thanks!
Helpful for the radio, i tried this for a bit but stopped- take radio of your main menu list. This way when you turn your ipod on it wont be right there for you but if you ever want it, theres still a way to access it. Youre doing great!
They also have shabbatons in different communities
The reason it is offensive is because their are many people actually diagnosed with mental retardation. It is a clinical term! When you call someone or something retarded you are in essence insulted those who really are “retarded.” Which by the way, is not used very often anymore because it became an insult. Please dont use it!
