Hyper focus. Do things that you enjoy and get absorbed. Find things to do with your kids that you find stimulating.
Why does it bother you? In what way are the competing shuls worse than yours that you aren’t sure if you should change?
Thank you for saying it so eloquently. You speak for a lot of us.
A Jewish “meet at a bar” system isn’t for everyone. You need to know both who you are and what kind of girl you would meet at that kind of venue. It’s not something I would be comfortable with, but if that’s your crowd then go ahead.
You are the only who decides who you marry. You decide who you go out with. If you’re information system is broken, then you need to figure out how to fix it.
Wow, I’m at a loss where to begin.
A shadchan does not decide who you go out with. He will recommend a girl based on a few different variables. Your background/family, your yeshivos/education, and information you tell him and what he heard about you. Maybe you can ask the shadchan why he recommended a particular girl and why you felt he was off the mark.
Ridiculous. When we disagree with our officials we respect our askonim who work tirelessly on our behalf. We should go outside 7:00 daily to applaud our askonim.
Joseph doesn’t know.
What makes you ask? Are you Jewish? Are you divorced? Then you know! If not, then who cares?
Joseph: based on your lack of basic mentchlichkeit, many of us are wondering about your parent’s parenting skills.May 6, 2020 10:22 am at 10:22 am in reply to: Lawsuit in NJ to force the state to allow worship service #1857646
I agree with charliehall. In addition to suicide, people are suing for the right to be a rodef. It’s an embarrassment that a Rabbi joined the suit. I feel that Agudath should put out a letter that said Rabbi is speaking for himself and not the rest of the community.
Is this some joke? Aren’t your kids doing schoolwork and stressing about it? My kids would much rather be in a live classroom than phone conferences and tons of homework!
google it and use the recommendations of a reputable source.
Here is my experience.
Train with wet alarm. Have some natural consequences. Child does own laundry etc. Psych the child that he can do it. Set alarm clock for half hour before his usual time of bed wetting. Have child do things that are hard for him and tell him he can do anything that he sets his mind to. (Researchers included jogging in place until too tired and then adding one more minute.)
As a Rebbes working from home, the workload is impossible. I create Kahoot games, prepare and e mail sheets, need to log on to Zoom and teach the same curriculum in less time to boys who are distracted. AND YOU WANT TO PAY ME LESS!?
You need to be proactive in shidduchim. Call and zoom or FaceTime with shadchanim. Network with friends. Get to know people. Hatzlacha.
Lower, can you post the onion mushroom recipe?
Chicken and potatoes, onion, water to cover. Cook two hours
How are the bar mitzvah plans coming along, still discussing the invitations?
I strongly disagree with Joseph. I believe that there are plenty of moral non-jews. Their standards might not be up to Joseph’s, but he shouldn’t demean people in a public forum.
Joseph: an intelligent statement would b that you had spoken to mesader gitten and they said that there is no difference between age when it comes to gitten. Not that anyone would be believe you!
To say make a statement and then say just ask is irresponsible.
Does trolling make people feel better? Is it apikorsus to say that people feel better after they troll?
Joseph, you say chassidim have a lower divorce rate. Can you back that with any factual research?
If all the boxes were checked, then why not? Why are posters stating their personal boxes that might not be checked? If they were, would you approve? I know people who were working for plumbers and electricians at that age. Others who are mature, but wanted to learn for 2-3 years with various means of assistance, including parental.
People need to understand that they can have opinions without denigrating others. That being said, I always vote for for both socially and fiscally conservative candidates.January 14, 2020 1:25 pm at 1:25 pm in reply to: Why hasn’t the frumvelt embraced democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang #1822637
The simple answer is, nobody embraces a loser. If he was polling at 30% it would be a question.
The simpler answer is, we aren’t socialist Russia! Their economy couldn’t sustain it’s people! We need to know that the harder you work and the better the product that you produce will bring for you economic gain! Getting free $$$ for doing nothing is a terrible idea!
I think it’s great that people learn in kollel. It means a few things.
1. Middle class and wealthy people have income that they can donate.
2. Parents have income that they can give to their children.
3. The young couple works. Wife can have income or husband can tutor in the evening. They need income as well.
Giving out free $$$ means that everyone will have less. Less people can hire a tutor. Lessbpeople can hire kollel wife. Parents will have less. Donors will have less.January 5, 2020 11:19 am at 11:19 am in reply to: מאימתי קורין את שמע בערבית משעה שהכהנים נכנסין לאכול בתרומתן #1819025
Those of us by the siyum learned it already. Remember what R. Grand said last siyum, you need to learn something every day! A dad, an amud, a mishna or halacha, but YOU MIST LEARN SOMETHING!
Personally, I don’t care to hear Rechnitz speak. I want to hear gedolim speak about the gadlos of Torah. I enjoyed the R. Lish and R. Farhi presentations about people who have mesiras nefesh for Torah, as well as R. Paysach Krohn. But I went to hear gedolim . Not wealthy baalei tzedokah.
What he is doing is wrong. Moral and halacha wrong. If you damage his car you are liable for damages. If you have it towed you might have issue with mesirah. You are asking complicated halacha questions from unknown people who may or may not be qualified to answer this question. If you ask your Rav, please let us know what he says.
I once heard R. Bluth zt”l say, when people divorce there are two choices, they can come to me for mediation or they can give all the money to divorce lawyers.
I recommend that all civil issues are resolved before the Bais Din Get.
I think it’s a great idea for people looking to move.
Hershh: what is the divorce rate compared to Yeshivish?
It should be a logical decision. But, if there aren’t any feelings then something is missing. Figure it out before proceeding
While you seem to be an honest person, please understand that there are plenty of trolls here who will write anything just to troll. Some people might not take your story seriously.
All the best
Are cholent and kishka considered two items or one?
If you receive GroupMe as a text it can be annoying, as an untold amount of people can have conversations the whole day and your phone will keep dinging.
Raleigh, chalet. If u want something more informal, food delivered to your insulated bungalow, Highland Park. I haven’t been to any of these places so can’t give more information.
OP: lol! One of the funniest trolls yet!
There is mitzvah to love G-d. People naturally love their loved ones. I don’t get how someone can use the word love for pizza. Enjoy, like, prefer are fine.November 13, 2019 1:23 pm at 1:23 pm in reply to: After millions spent on promotion why are 30% of seats unsold? #1800414
GH: come on, isn’t the price of admission worth bring there live? Dancing w the crowd and answering amen yehei shmei rabboh? Being a part of it?
CTL; Thanks so much for being part of the CR. Your vast knowledge and life experiences are always interesting and your comments are on point.
Unless you have a mesorah of going to mekubalim, I don’t recommend you going to one. The Vizhnitzer Rebbe from Monsey and Skloner Rebbe both yelled at people for going.
It isn’t our mesorah to hear al pi Kabbalah what is going to be happening. A Brocha or advice from a Rebbe or Rosh Yeshiva or local rabbi is preferable.
BTW, this might be a great question for your LOR.November 5, 2019 12:09 pm at 12:09 pm in reply to: Can you request an online purchase for delivery on shabbos?? #1797591
Why is it okay to leave out garbage for sanitation workers on Shabbos?
Yytz: R. Moshe is discussing place where you can be seen. Urinals which are private are okay.
Yytz: I looked up R. Moshes teshuva and you are correct. I will discuss it w my Rabbi, as my shul has urinals.
Rosh: ask your rabbi; poskim say that our mikvah does not have an issue of Bais hamerchatz and you may go with your father. R. Michel Steinmetz (heard on a CD) and R. Moshe Fogel, heard from a friend.
Yytz: some rabbeim? Could you be more specific? Sounds ridiculous to me, every yeshiva and many shuls that I’ve been to have urinals.
YF: unsure which culture you are referring to.
Also unsure if people need to discuss their emotional issues in a public CR.
Unsure how large a segment is suffering with this issue, have you done any research?
Peacho, I’m not trying to be funny or rude. There is nothing immodest about going to the mikvah. Nor is there something unsafe. You go to the mikvah and that’s it. Don’t focus so much on yourself and just do what you need to do. And don’t feel that it’s some weird Jewish thing, it’s perfectly acceptable all over the world.
YF: if someone has a tattoo and doesn’t want anyone to see it, then I get it. Otherwise, I don’t. You are a male human being like anyone else around and you go to the mikvah. Big deal!
