So the heter is ” I feel like it”. Anyone else?
The mishna brura paskens one must always wear a hat for davening and bentching.
Ribis and geneivas daas only applies to a Jew. It doesnt apply with Walmart or Citibank.
More Jews are irreligious than religious.
More gentiles speak English than French. Lets end French.
The BDA judges are heavily left-leaning.
Tell that to 750,000 frum yidden and bnei Torah across the globe to whom Yiddish is the mama loshon, their native first-language, used for everyday speech. Many of whom aren’t even fluent in any other language. (They can sometimes “get by” with a botched English.) And the many more to whom Yiddish is their second language, that their Limud HaTorah is conducted in.
To them it isn’t 2012. It is 5772.
BITTLE: How did you get them? And what is a DEA card?
Avram: Have you often seen topics of discussion here be used externally from this site as fodder to attack the frum or make us seem backwards?
His very presence was a light upon Klal Yisroel.
Bat Tzion?? I never heard of a name other than Ben-Tzion. And I have seen it spelled as two words in English.
Can someone please explain what homeopathy is?
Like Ben-Tzion is two words.
That’s what the Bris Milah Day, every year’s anniversary, does.
How come they don’t do this in the boys high schools?
IY”H, I’ll be having the same offer outstanding next year on the second Sunday in March.
Do you know anyone, notably a rov, that shares your opinion on this?
I never heard an Ashkenaz called Bassheva. It always seems to be Batsheva.
What kiruv? These guys are often born frum.
Is it an alternative medicine?
If someone says Tikun Chatzos every midnight, that practice might fairly be described as kedusha vtahara. Now, that doesn’t mean that all the people who do not say Tikun Chatzos lack any kedusha vtahara. Just that those that do have an extra kedusha’dika practice.
Nothing wrong with that. And same principle here I believe.
What if the sidewalk is narrow? Who said that is fine?March 13, 2012 8:02 pm at 8:02 pm in reply to: Do any Brooklyn Rabbonim say its OK to report molesters to police first? #860078
Why are you rabbi shopping? You ask the same rabbi all your shailos. Not look for a rabbi whose answer you’ll like.
bpt: You speak from your own perspective, and perhaps what you say is correct in your own home, but you are very incorrect as a rule. The boys in the frum community are wonderful and being brought up beautifully.
That’s like a Jew not having any Rov and saying his rabbi is Moshe Rabbeinu.
If you tried Good Shabbosing everyone you passed on the way to shul in BP (and possibly Flatbush), your voice would be hoarse by time you got to shul after passing dozens and dozens of folks. And if your son (or anyone) was walking with you to shul, they wouldn’t be able to get a word in edgewise with you since you’d be too busy Good Shabbosing someone every 3 feet. Now wouldn’t that be ruder, and not to mention a lack of attention to your son?
seedys: Why’d ja blow it so fast? I almost made $500!
Shticky: The clock moved from 2 to 3, so two minutes doesn’t help you.
BT: We need Atomic Clocks.
Would any of you claimants be ready to pay me $250 if I can prove you weren’t there precisely 2:30 AM this past Saturday Night/Sunday Morning?
It’s too bad nobody showed up at the appointed time Saturday Night.
13th Avenue is bumper-to-bumper Jewish shopping, on both sides of the street, from 39th Street through 54th Street. 15 city blocks straight. That isn’t replicated elsewhere.
If the seforim say we make a celebration on the 13, 60, and 70 birthdays davka, obviously the underlying basis is that we don’t do it on every birthday.
There’s nothing wrong with mentioning someone specific. Others might have mentioned Rav Moshe Feinstein. Others the Satmar Rebbe. And others who 147 mentioned. All would be correct.
Service while flying in the air, or on the ground?
The FAA prohibits Wi-Fi, and no U.S. airline offers wireless service.
How so, wanderingchana?
Someone should check Snopes to see if this is just an urban legend.
Anyways, just hold you’re breath for a few seconds when you hiccup.
I would trust Haaretz as much as I do the Iranian News Agency.
ambush: The BIC doesnt write everyone should do it. He writes “There are those that have a custom… And it is a good sign.”
I heard this when I was a child. I almost forgot about this. No idea if has any basis.
Just cause you don’t like it, doesn’t make it wrong if its a standard practice for ticketing events.
They are noheg to walk a few steps ahead of the wife, when walking in public.March 11, 2012 4:51 pm at 4:51 pm in reply to: Sephardim, Marriage, Gittin, and Cherem Rabbeinu Gershom #901463
Why wouldn’t they be able to divorce at will?
Lately they’ve been called Orthoprax or Heterodox. But whatever you call them, they’ve been around throughout Jewish history. They tend to disappear from the Jewish scene and assimilate into the gentiles after a generation or two (or a bit longer sometimes.)
In the sefer Afraskta D’anya he writes that the tradition of the Chasam Sofer is that one shouldn’t celebrate his birthday. The Minchas Elazar writes that the Rabbonim of the previous doros didn’t celebrate birthdays. And the Gemora in Avoda Zora lists the Roman holidays and celebrations (in an uncomplimentary way), and one of the Roman celebrations mentioned is birthday celebrations.
Bronfen? Isn’t the Yiddish word shnaps?
Haleivi: Do you follow all of the Ben Ish Chai’s minhagim? What was his minhag, anyways?March 11, 2012 6:33 am at 6:33 am in reply to: Help! Have Gallstones; Can I Avoid Gallbladder Removal?? #925576
How does a gallstone attack feel?
Perhaps “gut feelings” is an appropriate yardstick?
Getting back to the original questions, how many times do you dip your fingers and where do you apply your wet fingers to (which pockets, ears, eyebrows.)
Getting back to the original questions, what does it take to get you drunk and how do you act once drunk?
There is almost always a place on earth where it is not Shabbos at any particular moment.
