there should be “like buttons” under every post….
i (being 16) happen not to enjoy smoking and i don’t get any pleasure, relief etc. from it (ive tried it twice like once two yrs ago and once a yr b4 tht…) but if i did there really would be very little stopping me…
why? (this is especially applicable to those rationalists with the belief that the gemara could be misinformed on certain issues, but even according to non-rationalists, it is still a question)
lol +1 for daas yochid.
and yahud: if its purely scientific than its a just a saying from someone, albeit a very great someone, who lived over a thousand years ago. Why is something kadosh just because Ravina/Rav Ashi decided it should be published in Talmd Bavli?
its right here.
maksim to u dull. if a few chassidim walked into a fancy business meeting collecting $ because they knew ppl there had money, they wold be kicked out right away. it definately ruins the decorum of omeid lifnei basar vdam. although, you do have do balance that with da lifnei mi atah omeid, be reminded of Hashem, and scissor’s comment about ze keili v’anveihu…
heres an interesting q: is it better to give the change in my pocket to the guy playing guitar on the subway if the change thats in my pocket will end up in the pushka?

i was going to ask that… Is there any Halachic reason for a religious person not to assume a role of power? or is it just impractical and not plausible?
From a friend of mine at camp:

oh tht reminds me,
Chuck Norris lives in Alaska, AND davens bizman.
thank you so much! and btw , its not that i care about the time, i enjoy spending time davening. its just the unanswerable 3rd question and a odd disliking for tachanun in particulair tht bugs me… but thank you for ur answer, although shiva is already over.
and the shul i davened shacharis at didnt say tachanun today! (i think cuz of rambam’s yarhtzeit? is that a valid reason not to say tachanun?…)
Chuck Norris says tachanun on his left hand…even with tefillin on.
Chuck Norris can do Hagbah and Gelilah…with one hand
Chuck Norris throws candy at the kehila on his bar mitzvah
Chuck Norris davens at the latest minayn and does daf yomi
Chuck Norris wears a kippah srugah and a black hat
lol my counselor in camp told me the same thing, but especially when he announces that there is no tachanun on a monday or thursday 🙂
but no one answered my q. of: y we dont say tachanun in a beis avel?
gemara in kesubos 111A says the pasukim- “hisbati eschem bnos yerushalayim…” refers to 3 shavuos. one of them is “shelo yaalu yisrael b’chomah.” rashi says “b’yad chazakah” meaning klal yisroel promised we wont forcibly take back eretz yisroel before mashiach comes. The reason a majority of Rabbonim do not find this to be problematic is because we did not “conquer” the land of israel, we diplomatically were given it. The Satmer Rebbe R’ Yoel was against the state of Israel. I’m not sure how exactly those who follow his view use this gemara.
depends. if youre just hanging around and need a beverage, iced tea. if ur @ breakfast, iced coffee. if u need a refreshment, iced coffe. cold nestea also works, but not real iced tea.
actually, when life hands me pumpkins, i make pumpkin pie…
i would like to believe tht non-modern orthodoxy puts value (even if its not inherent) into secular studies, bt only so tht u get a better understanding of Torah, but they dont. modern orthodox does (albeit they also give it inherent value). Yeshivism may say it believes tht secularities can help u with Torah and understanding of Hashem, but they shun away from philosophy.
wearing jeans is only negative because wearing jeans is negative. In Yehsivish communities, wearing jeans is offensive, so wearing jeans is rebellious, so wearing jeans is probably significant of BAD. in modern communities, its not, so its not. Now ur left with the prob of when a yeshivish person sees a modern person or vice versa. then u get into the argument about which community is actuality better. and thts nvr going to b solved. Modern guy going to yeshivish event- understands yeshivism so he’ll wear suit pants. yeshivish guy going to modern event- cant be less frum, he has to be proud of his frumness so he’ll also wear sit pants . :/
I didnt realize how much of a little community existed here. one of u should make a blog which summarizes all ur views into one article, or where u can post full length articles (like Cross-Currents and Emes Ve-Emunah) cuz u guys put together have interesting views on contemporary issues. Although almost anytime anyone is started, it gets pretty sidetracked :p . anyways i guess im new so hi.December 27, 2011 5:08 am at 5:08 am in reply to: Increase in OTD Children… are made to feel like second-class citizens, #839789
technically, the point of all the guidelines for tznius are so that the woman should appear refined, and stand out as tznius. so in those days woman were being equally tznius. but nowadays were the yeshivish community has formed its own society with its own dress norms, breaking those codes is against halacha. (same goes for the black hat). the problem though, is that tznius (and th black hat) are no longer a thing of respect for religion of HASHEM, but only a thing of peer pressure. In the case of the black hat, now it is no longer required, because lack of it (if it were against halacha) would technically be lack of extra kavod and not a lack in tznius. however tznius is based on accepted dress code, which in the self formed yeshivish community is pretty strict.
