By not spending much, you are already over the $3,000/month threshold!
Good luck, and may you and your kallah build a wonderful Jewish home!
Impossible. If he isn’t wearing a white shirt, he is not yeshivish. It doesn’t matter what he learns, how he behaves, who his friends are, how he respects people. So long as he can schmeff, and wears black and white, he is yeshivish.
Why is the question about bochurim? Even if you could venture to say that textng by bochurim has gotten out of hand, doesn’t it apply, perhaps even more so, to the girls??????????/
frumguy, I’m happy it wasn’t what I initially feared-thank you very much!
yungerman – agreed, but for some reason I don’t remember it being as widespread as a few years ago – maybe I don’t have the most vivid memory though.
sam2 – i thought there was some ka’eyleh during sukkos and shavuous too, maybe during yom tov itself and not chol ha’moed. However, also realize that I was referencing mussaf chazaras hashatz which is prevalent during all yomim tovim obviously.
Frumguy, sarcasm won’t get you anywhere. I just wanted to hear members of the CR’s opinion on whether they do what I described above, and why they do it. If you weren’t being sarcastic then I thank you sincerely. Have a great mo’ed!

This makes no sense. Does anyone really think these yeshiva guys have the marketable skills to be hired, especially with little or no training??? Maybe I could see them schlepping some boxes or selling things, but there’s no way they could work behind a desk in a secretarial or administrative capacity. By the time they learned what they were doing, their month would be u.
And why would any employer ever hire random yeshiva guys for a month. People with training try hard to get internships, and even that is after training.
WHAT THESE YOUNG BOYS SHOULD BE DOING IS BAKING MATZOS IN FACTORIES FOR PEOPLE! IT WOULD ALLOW THEM A DOCILE JOB AND THEY CAN PUT ALL THE HALACHOS THEY LEARNED IN YESHIVA TO GOOD USE!!!!!
If you are interested in Ambit Energy, I advise against it. Period.
In case nobody realized, calling himself the “King of Jewish Music” is a great marketing ploy. People do this all the time. It’s called business.
I once heard that Yeshiva bochurim used to don the long sideburns in the manner of a certain goyishe singer known as “The King of Rock and Roll”. A rosh yeshiva came out and actually ordered them to be cleanshaven to avoid going in the ways of the goyim.
The issue someone brought up was that buying life insurance constituted a lack of bitachon in HaShem, but Rav Moshe ruled that not only is it not a lack of bitachon, it is beneficial to have life insurance for your family’s sake.December 21, 2011 12:11 am at 12:11 am in reply to: why do the rules of dreidel seem to change every year? #836467
Funny. In my family we play several varieties of dreidel, none of which have been talked about yet.
There’s the game were we have points awarded based on how long you can spin a dreidel for. (I always win)
Then we have a game with dozens of dreidels, and the objective is to get as many as possible to spin before the others stop spinning-get the most simultaneous dreidels to spin. (I always win)
Also, there’s the game were you have to spin the dreidel upside-down. (Due to severe fighting, the winner is usually unknown)
How about the answer to the Beis Yosef that the 25th day was for the dedication of the mishkan? I like that answer too.
That might explain some of their theories, and also the fact that a growing number of Reform Jews are not Jewish according to traditional halacha.
BaalHabooze, I think the answer to your question on why we dont celebrate a 9th day because of sfeika diyoma is that Chanukah isn’t a yom tov mentioned in the Torah-it is a yom tov midivrei sofrim, as the Mishna Berurah says it, and I don’t believe we ever keep an extra day for something Midirabonon.
The question I have is why Yom Kippur isn’t 2 days long!!?? Why don’t we say sfeika diyoma? Maybe a possible answer is the same answer as in the SHulchan Aruch? (I think) that we don’ want to go two days without the possibility of burying a mes-the same reason why Yom Kippur is never on Friday or Sunday, though that itself may be based more on Hoshanah Rabbah not falling on Shabbos, an additional question now that I think about it.
What a shame that in 2011 shidduchim has become a BUSINESS. Yes, shadchanim are entitled to a fee, but it has gotten outrageous that there is now a going rate that needs to be raised in order for the shadchan to work harder for you, regardless of financial status.
It was a joke intended for the Wolf but evidently everyone took it personally. Sorry. 🙂
To your question, yes you theoretically can date her like that, but it is not seen as appropriate in many circles.
I don’t know about you, but when i daven of Shabbos morning, there are many perakim of Tehillim in davening. Does this answer your question?
It’s because of the seat belt.
It may never. Who knows.

A ‘hairy’ is the Harryish way of saying Harry. Being as I don’t pronounce Harry ‘hairy’, I guess I am disqualified.
quark2, correct me if I am mistaken, but I get the impression that the point of your question was not just an innocent survey, but in reality an act of justification. Either you or someone close to you has watched or watches movies, and you want to know if it is justified by the mere fact that others are doing this. This is not the way to look at things, regardless of whether what you are doing is kosher.

There is a dearth of cholent parties in Flatbush.
Why would switching to a different school solve your problem?? You appear to be an anomaly, and I doubt there is a school out there that can accomodate you, other than maybe a homeschool, or your own school. I assume that you, as a young bas yisrael, don’t need to daven with a minyan. Therefore, you should wake up at 7 A.M. and daven at home for as long as you want.
Disclaimer: I personally agree with Wolf and don’t see anything ‘wrong’ with davening for an hour; on the contrary maybe it’s a very good thing. However, you can’t be the iconoclast in this situation. (p.s. I hope I used iconoclast correctly)
1)Are they Jewish, meaning the message was (likely) solicited?
2)What exactly did the message entail?
3)Are you upset at this development, or merely showing your irreverence for those who may have betrayed you?
Cinci, you are mistaken with regard to F (defending the patnent).
F is also capitalized under GAAP.April 21, 2011 2:30 am at 2:30 am in reply to: How many times did you say Sh’monah Esreh tonight? #1012053
I only said it once, even though I initially forgot vi’sain bracha. However, I caught on to my mistake (thanks to the guy davening next to me LOUDLY whispering “vi’sain bracha!”) and inserted it during shema koleinu.
mw13: while it’s true that this belongs in the halacha thread, I think that even if it were, say, assure gamur, ppl would still do it without realizing their error.
i also know some people who take shopping bags from stores without permission-i doubt this is halachically and certainly not ethically correct if the owners dont approve- WHY SHOULD THEY WASTE THEIR SUPPLIESS ON NON-CUSTOMERS!?

Is it permitted for a man to wear a dress??
Have I answered the question??
A good question would be if men are allowed to shave/trim their eyebows/unibrows?
Or if men can use hair-dying products if they’re made for men, like Just-for-Men hair products?
Here I am in Israel and I’m running for the past 3 days and the streets are still beautiful!!!!!!!!! The buses are running, there is plenty of mail, only one train in hupitzville isn’t running and I’m happy. I’m so so elated that our city doesn’t have to deal with a few feet of snow like they’ve never seen this before. We pay taxes!! Im happy who’s with me?? Come move here!!!

Now I’m not siding with the proponents of Global Warming (a.k.a. Al Gore), but to be honest, their claims are that the weather has increased a few degrees in recent times. This explains how we can still have cold winters.
Although 2-3 degrees farenheit doesn’t mean much to us here, it actually has enormous weight near the Poles, where melting glacial masses as a consequence of Global Warming may mean increasing high tides and flooding for coastal cities worldwide in the not-so distant future.
Just saying, not siding with those people.

We all (should) know of the famous Chazal/Midrash/Gemara (someone please fill me in) that after 120, when we go up to judgment, we will be taken to a room and shown any resume from among millions to choose. We will end up choosing our own lives. (even homeless people)
What most people fail to realize is that G-d gave every person their own distinct personality and attitude, which allows that individual to operate in the perfect symphony of good and bad, known colloquially as the ‘peckel’. For example, you could have the richest guy with a beautiful wife and children, and even perfect health, but he IS DEPRESSED. Maybe his ruchniyus life is bad, maybe he has emotional distress, etc… On the flip side, you could have a poor man, trying desperately to support his family, he has little income, and his children are troublesome, YET he is a happy-go-lucky guy.
BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REALIZE IS THAT WHAT SEEMS TO BE GOOD FOR ONE PERSON IS NOT GOOD FOR THE OTHER!!!!!
So even if someone wishes in his heart, “If only I could be rich like him”, maybe if his wish becomes reality, his personality will not allow to function the same way he did in his original ‘peckel’.
