Hmmm, another guy, and a goy no less, was also giving you unwarranted attention? Honestly this whole situation stinks.August 26, 2011 10:34 pm at 10:34 pm in reply to: Earthquake + Hurricane during One Week in New York #802740
Sam2: Someone living in New York would be correct in focusing more on a crisis happening in New York than on a crisis happening in Louisiana.
Sam2: Why might it be assur?
Sounds quite inappropriate what he did. He was hitting on you.
Great move, Be Happy.
There’s fashion and there’s fashion. Red nail polish and lipstick is also fashionable.
What do you mean grapple with it? If they allow it, that’s the psak.
momma: Not much different than if you wronged someone in a lesser way (i.e. you punched him in the face) and he later passed away before you asked for forgiveness.
If one of those shallow boys requests a picture, send a photoshopped pic.
The women in the British royal family are famous for their immodesty.
One, two, three, four, and more generations ago the hamon hoam all wore hats. Going hatless or headgear-less is a newfangled idea picked up from the outside.
Mike: The victim is the deceased and the mechilla would need to come from him, not family. Perhaps he needs to go to the kever and ask mechilla, but teshuva is always available in Judaism.
For all the good reasons to move to EY, and there are many depending on the situation (i.e. it’s not necessarily for everyone), I don’t think physical safety is necessarily one of them.
How do you know if someone did teshuva for a public aveira?
A bigger Talmid Chochom could so inform him.
Have him checked out.
Sam: The best way to accomplish the goal you seek (which is a very worthwhile one), is that every Torah Jew wears a black hat.
Boys dress like they would to go to a wedding for a first date, and girls should also.
When you find the ‘searching for old threads’, it will tell you how to search for old threads. Then you will be able to search for the ‘searching for old threads’ thread.
A wife devotes her life to her husband. This is completely normal.
I don’t know how it fits in the tznius aspect, but wearing sunglasses does draw attention to oneself. Whether on the face or on the head.
cantoresq: Because they would require a University level education, which will bring along with it those negative influences that would affect both the individual as well as those who he is associated with.
I agree. Let’s abolish all these nutty terms for various Yidden.
MDG: The point of Rav Dessler was his quote of Vayikra Rabbah 2:1: “One thousand students enter to study Mikra… and only one emerges to hora’ah.” That the Yeshiva system was designed to give that 1 in 1,000 student the ability to become a godol b’yisroel. That unless the Yeshiva system was as demanding as it was, that 1 in 1,000 wouldn’t become the godol he could. And we need those gedolim.
cantoresq: Rav Dessler point was not that the other 999 will become poor am ha’aratzim c”v. Rav Dessler specifically pointed out that the Roshei Yeshivos would do all they could for the other 999 to remain bnei Torah. (He wrote: “They tried as best they could to help those who could not remain in the yeshiva as bnei Torah.”) A ben Torah is in no way, shape, or form an am ha’aretz.
That book has been withdrawn from publication at the direction of the gedolim shlit”a. In any event, it is unrelated to the point you quoted.
I would tend to think the Canadian public is almost about the same pro-Israel as the American public is (which is overwhelmingly the case.)
Mike: How old are your children?
Sam: Nor have you heard anyone of Rav Elyashev’s stature disagree with this psak. So by your own point and admission, you are not one to disagree on this case.
He may know you. But he would have no way of knowing that based on your posts here.
Have rachmanas. She’s an almana.
hello99: Why wasn’t the cancer case considered rodef? By the baby preventing the mother from taking life saving medicine, is not the baby being rodef? Also, in this case, is being that the baby is yet unborn not a factor?
P.S. Do i know you?? Your details sound familiar…
How is he supposed to answer that? Think of everyone he knows with the initials rfs?
MDG: That’s a quote from the Rambam. Nowhere, no place, has Rav Dessler or anyone suggested that any bochorim in the Yeshiva be sacrificed. The heavy price Rav Dessler refers to is that the intense Torah study in the Yeshivos mean many of the students aren’t cut out to put all their energies exclusively on Torah learning and would leave, and the Yeshiva *helped* those students who left to stay as bnei Torah in the workforce. (Except those that chose to go to University, which the Yeshivos cut off contact with, in order the university students should not negatively influence the Yeshiva students.) Nowhere does he suggest anyone be “sacrificed” c”v.
BTW, tzitzis in or out is a machlokes. The Arizal would wear his tallis kattan, tzitzis and all, under his other garments. Rav Chaim Vital explained that this was because the tallis kattan and the tallis gadol relate to two kinds of reality: the internal reality (pnimius) and the external reality (chitzunius). The tallis kattan represents the internal level and is therefore worn within other garments, while the tallis gadol represents the external and is therefore worn over the other garments. (Pri Etz Chaim, Shaar Tzitzis I.)
Sam: Torah Jews have always been identifiable by their clothing.
yic: Chacham Ovadia Yosef alternatively either wears a black hat or a turban.
cantoresq: That’s a total myth. Rav Dessler’s exact words (from Michtav M’Eliyahu 3) is “One thousand students enter to study Mikra… and only one emerges to hora’ah” (halachic decision making). Nowhere has he ever said *anyone* is sacrificed.
Sam: You have no reason to think he would have changed his mind. He made a statement, vzeh hu. If you start projecting, you can discount everything any godol said by saying “well if he were around today he would have changed his mind and agreed with me.”
Give her some hugs and be there for her to talk to.
Every aveira? There is a humongous difference between skipping a tefila and arayos/talking to girls.
Can someone rely on a psak issued to another person, if he has an equivalent situation? (If not, what are responsa seforim for?)
Does he still do a children’s show? Or raffle off prizes?
Sam: He didn’t say it was always the uniform; he said it is the current uniform. And why should he say differently today? If there has been any change in the last 10 years since he was niftar, it is that more and more of Klal Yisroel have begun donning a black hat.August 24, 2011 1:32 am at 1:32 am in reply to: Divorced and Remarried Woman–didn't cut her losses #801454
Wives are at fault at least as often as husbands. And they can be real witches.
A boy who talks to girls WILL negatively influence his classmates. The Menahel had to weigh hurting one person vs. hurting 25 persons in the class.
aries2756: MiddlePath has previously made clear the Rabbonim dealt with this situation correctly and appropriately. Please do not continue to look for excuses to bash Rabbonim, something you seem to take sport in.
Middle age is more than a bit older.
Anecdotal. Do you disagree? Certainly proportionally much higher.
