My point was those flight attendants were antisemites plain and simple who will blame Jews regardless of how faultless Jews are. And since in polite company you can’t say Jews, they use euphemisms.
bjj, How do you find it affecting you?
The maccabeats proposal had eidim, so why wasn’t the marriage consummated then and there?
bein_hasdorim, is that story a joke?
There are mitzvos I am uncomfortable with. I still do them without question or hesitation.
“Just curious would any of you like to stay in a fairly clean hotel?”
Good point bein_hasdorim.
Maybe not to a particular Torah institution, but at least to Torah institution(s).
How did Yeshivaleit propose in Europe?

Don’t believe everything some antisemites say in private.
What averia, if any, is witticism at an anonymous poster?
“Gabbo, so what’s your point?”
My point simply was that as much as the feminists demand to wear the pants, the child’s gotta have some last name. So what are they gonna do? Hyphenate the kids to? And when those kids get married to another hyphenated spouse, will the now wife and grandkids have FOUR hyphenated last names? And the next generation eight; etc. So they realize the absurdity of their quest.
I don’t know about your circles, but everyone I know does!
How is it that every shidduch I know of – i my family, friends, acquaintances, etc. were all made by friends, family, and acquaintances, and none by professionals? It appears the professionals only represent a tiny portion of shidduchim that are made.
There is nothing wrong with someone looking to marry someone notably younger than himself. If that is what he seeks, Hashem should help him get what he is looking for. And very frequently he does.
Ofcourse: “Now, how would you suggest singles in the frum community meet, starting today?”
With friends and family as shadchanim, like most people do and the vast majority of shidduchim come from.
Nothing wrong with a guy marrying a girl half his age. Don’t be jealous of those lucky guys.January 10, 2011 1:43 am at 1:43 am in reply to: Did the political tone influence yesterday's shooting. #727379
I don’t think so either. Like you said, the killer is a left-wing commie nazi lunatic. And his intended victim is a right-of-center Democrat. And the killer has been ranting about mind control and currency stuff unrelated to any politics.
Even though I am only one Gabbai, I am one of several Gabboim.
So how do you change lanes if no one in the lane you are trying to get into allows you to enter (i.e. they move closer to the car in front of them to leave no space)? The only way often is to force your way into a tight break, effectively “cutting off” the car.
What are you talking about? The vast majority of Jewish people are non-carriers. And the majority of shidduchim are between two non-carriers. Therefore their children are also non-carriers. So it doesn’t pass on the next generation. At no point with current practices will a majority of people be carriers. (Even if children of a one carrier parent becomes a carrier. And I’m not even certain if children of parents where only one is a carrier automatically become carriers themselves.)
Explain the simple truth.
The point being that if you find a poster annoying or nasty or whatever, you do have the option to ignore (even without a function built in for that purpose.) You don’t have to respond to a post you don’t like. And you certainly don’t have to berate a poster you don’t like.
“Often” isn’t good enough. I want my food to “always” be kosher, according to how my Rov defines kosher.
Whether the guys are being unreasonable or not, they are getting what they want while the girls not necessarily so.
The Sefardim are originally from Spain. So they too were just as far away.
willi, your family does beshow’s or goes out on dates?
My Rov’s understanding of S”A or your Rov’s understanding of S”A?
Unless you fully and completely trust someone and their kashrus – plus they have at least the same kashrus standards as yourself – you cannot eat their food or in their home. Like someone said, even if they agreed to make a certain food up to your standards, their utensils they use to prepare the food were previously utilized with their lower standards.
I agree. There’s nothing wrong – and everything right – for a guy to stick to his demands for a shidduch. BUT not for vanity. If his list includes physical attributes he is out of line. Not to mention he will likely end up with a “beautiful” witch, who’s got the looks but lacks the middos. But if he is looking to learn and wants a Kollel type girl, Hashem should bless him with that and everything else.
Even the feminists that keep or hyphenate their maiden name generally give the fathers last name to their children.
There is nothing wrong with it. MANY older guys marry younger girls. Always been that way. The Chazon Ish (or perhaps it was the Steipler) said they should though be within 10 years of each others age, as a general rule.
Yichus is something to be very proud of.
You’re parents brought you into life and brought you up. You owe it to them. Tell them when they expect you to tell it to them.
How should I answer this if my date asks me?
and, please, change the last character of the post (OP) from “>” to “?” (a question mark).
Is there a kind Mod available that can add the letter “s” as the fourth character in my new thread currently titled “It’ A Man’s World” ?
It would be most appreciated from the moderator.
Isn’t shnayim mikra mean the pasuk twice and tagume once (pasuk by pasuk)?
It is a fair question to ask, to those who promote the “importance” of weight and looks before marriage, if after a few kids if the weight and looks are no longer optimal, if the wife no longer looks or weighs what the husband demanded for shidduchim, if he will be giving her an ultimatum of fix your nature — lose enough weight (and regain your look if applicable) or we will be meeting in divorce court.
anonforthis, has your husband always been supportive in your efforts to limit your children’s contact with their grandparents?
aries2756, it is untrue to state that Reb Moshe and Rav Pam had a practice to open the door for their wives. I’m sure they’ve done so many times, but it wasn’t their “shitta”, to put it nicely. I’m sure their Rebbitzen’s opened the door for Reb Moshe and Rav Pam many more times than the other way.
The coffeeroom should put a “TV” mark under the screennames of posters with televisions, so others know where their non-Torah views on Jewish issues come from.
My great-grandfather was about 40 years older than his second wife (my great-grandmother); the Ribbnitzer Rebbe was about 50 years older than his second wife. So if the CC was 50 years older, and she was born in 1888, she may have lived until over 100 years old.
Same place it says a Yirei Shamayim shouldn’t fress a hot dog in public.

The Gedolei Yisroel shlita (zul zei zan gezunt un shtark ad meah v’esrim shonah) can come out with ideas how to implement. Some things that come to mind are, which clothing are appropriate – to insure that the leghnth is sufficient, isn’t tight, make takonos against stores that sell inappropriate clothing.
Cite?? You think everything a Yirei Shamayim would do is written down somewhere?? Vi shteit az ah yirei shamayim shouldn’t fress a hot dog on coney island avenue?
Before feminists pushed their wares on society, even goyishe women knew they had to listen to their husbands. Even goyishe women stuck to marriages, and didn’t leave at the first chance to prove their so called equality. Before feminists, even goyishe women stayed at home by and large, and brought up their kids.
A Yirei Shamayim will choose to give a Yid parnassa whenever possible.
Unless your boss gives you reshus, it is pure geneiva to go online for non-business purposes during working hours.
My name is so common, there is almost nothing in google on me. And whatever little there is, is buried under 100’s of other items that come first.June 11, 2010 8:38 pm at 8:38 pm in reply to: Breach in Tznius: Recent affliction attacking Klal Yisroel #1025279
Just like we have hashgochos for food, we need them for tznius matters.
A Yirei Shamayim doesn’t read fiction.
