    I know a lot of Lubavitchers and they only eat Cholov Yisroel.

    Little Froggie – Thanks for pointing that out. I didn’t see that. I like my new subtitle! Thanks moderator! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Also – moderator – I like Little Princess but what’s with the 3 – cuz it’s 3rd generation on the CR?

    Well anyway, I guess we’ll have to wait until Little Princess can at least voice her opinion in writing. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Syag – We should never “look down our noses” at anyone. Who are we to judge? Hashem is the only Judge.

    We need more Ahavas Yisroel. Period!

    And the reason we have so many enemies from the outside is because we have so many “enemies” from within. It’s horrible that we don’t truly have Ahavas Yisroel. Yes – it’s preached all the time. But do we really practice it? Really? With all our hearts? I think we know the answer.

    Thanks everyone for your answers. I’m still a bit confused though as to what it means to “leave” Hashem and yet still hold the Torah. I get that holding the Torah would bring one back to Hashem, but if they left Him, why would they still hold the Torah?

    Yes Daas Yochid. It does say that in my post. However the first time I checked Arutz Sheva web site, I didn’t see it. Then I checked again a few hours later and saw something about it. So….it’s a done deal, Kever Rochel and Maaras Hamachpela belong to the Arabs? Or am I missing something?

    I heard that it came to be that way because so many people thought that’s what it was. Have you googled it? I will try later. I must get ready for work now. But I’m curious to see what the original version REALLY was.

    Syag – Obviously I don’t know the story here but is it possible that when she delivered that threatening message to you from the other person, she thought she was giving you a head’s up and protecting you?

    From your posts, it sounds like she has no clue that she hurt you. You asked her why she would would tell you such a thing but maybe it didn’t register to her that you are actually upset. Did you say outright that you are upset? Some people need it to be spelled out for them (slow learners).

    I also don’t get the connection between the book (and its messages) to your story. It doesn’t sound like she had that in mind when she gave you the message. Maybe I’m just totally missing something.

    Anyway, lots of times people hurt you and don’t even realize it. Maybe she just realizes from your comments that she made a poor choice in repeating the convo to you. I don’t know. Just guessing here. Some ppl are clueless and others don’t know how to apologize.

    I had situation a few years ago where someone got SO ANGRY with me and I honestly did nothing to hurt her. She misunderstood the whole thing. She called me up screaming at me at the top of her lungs. Never had anyone done that to me! She later told me she knew she was wrong and should apologize to me but wasn’t ready yet. She was never ready. She is now no longer among the living. At least it turned out that we were on speaking terms (we were in a store together and just started talking then she invited me to her simchas again) before she passed a away (btw- she wasn’t sick- it was sudden) but she never apologized. I did find it in my heart to forgive her after she passed away. Did it for myself and for her neshama.

    Maybe spell it out for this person – give her one more chance to apologize. It’s scary to think it could be too late one day. Anyway, I don’t know how much this person means to you so it’s your call if you want to write her off or try to be friends again (it also depends how close you were with her).

    In any case – hatzlacha rabba – and may you only be surrounded with true friends and family who only have your best interest at heart. <3

    flatbusher – yes, some of us are very sensitive to these things- to our own feelings as well as others. I don’t know if you are male or female, but maybe we can start our own chat. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    be joyful – no I’m not the type to have long chats or texts, so that’s not it in this case. But I guess for some, it might be.

    Where are your daughter and son in law moving? I know – hide the kids in your house somewhere – they wouldn’t leave without the kids. Then you get to keep them all here. Oh! It doesn’t work that way, does it? Anyway I don’t know how long the chevy on sleds will be living in chicago either.

    I’m hoping he will end up loving it here and not want to go anywhere else. I can dream, can’t I?
