We tip our mailman, sanitation collectors, and UPS delivery guy.
Besides the fact that by the small tip ($20-$25) we give them once a year we get great service from them throughout the year, it also shows them and my children that we have Hakaros HaTov.December 13, 2010 6:34 pm at 6:34 pm in reply to: Seforim to Sell #716726
Trying to be helpful,
Thank you. Great idea.December 12, 2010 8:46 pm at 8:46 pm in reply to: My new "shtick" that Im trying to get others into… #716893
It’s in Gitin 62.
See also Berachoth 6b, and Maharsha there.December 12, 2010 6:54 pm at 6:54 pm in reply to: My new "shtick" that Im trying to get others into… #716884
See Talmud Bavli 62, that Rav Chisda would be Makdim sholom even to a non-Jew.
Rav Moshe Feinstein ZT”L used to tell everyone good morning, even non-Jews.
The Lubavitcher Rebee ZT”L used to say good morning to anyone he met in the street, even women. (I heard this from someone who constantly saw this.)
The word “hello” can change someones entire mood or attitude.December 12, 2010 6:45 pm at 6:45 pm in reply to: yosheiv beseser… mipach yokush midever _____ what? #718386
Haoovoys makes more sense.
In Karbonos do you say “Tanya Bar Kapara” or “Tanya Bar Kafra”?December 12, 2010 3:23 am at 3:23 am in reply to: Seforim to Sell #716722
You can email me at [email protected]. I’ll email back to you a list of the seforim.
ThanksDecember 12, 2010 3:14 am at 3:14 am in reply to: iPhone vs Blackberry #1063387
I have an iPhone 3GS. I love it!
Blackberry is better for someone who uses a phone a lot for text, IM, email, etc.
iPhone is better for web browsing, apps, and just to play around with. I think the iPhone is cooler too.December 12, 2010 3:04 am at 3:04 am in reply to: Naming A Child After Someone With Weird Name #1121115
If you feel uncomfortable with the name, take the guts and don’t give it to your child.
Giving two names and not using one name is absurd. The kid nebech has this name attached to him/herself, and the person that is officially being respected by giving the name to the child is not repected. To the contrary, he/she is being disrepected by purposefully avoiding to use his/her name.
Who cares what parents and grandparents think when it comes to this issue. It’s your child. Do what YOU think is right. They will eventually get over it, but you might not.
THINK FOR YOURSELF!December 12, 2010 2:56 am at 2:56 am in reply to: Gift Ideas for Men #1000490
I’m a man.
A wallet or a shawl is a great idea. Macy’s has great varieties of these!
Any gift should be something that the receiver would love to have but doesn’t feel him/herself desrving to spend money and get it for him/herself.December 12, 2010 2:48 am at 2:48 am in reply to: Seforim to Sell #716720
Seforim are recent publications and in new condition.
I live in Brooklyn, New York.
These seforim are also good for a shul or yeshiva that is looking to build up their seforim library. If anybody knows of such an outlet, please let me know. Good seforim for great prices!
