How do boots serve to keep toes warm on the hot summer days they are worn? It must be something more than that.
Boot pumping women came into style when the shmutz emanating from Paris made it the fashion rage.
How much money do you blokes waste — err spend, on a typical Black Friday?
A post from today (above) and a post from last week were both made by you on Shabbos. This site should not be facilitating your being mechallel shabbos bfarhesya right here on a frum site.
I don’t understand why PuhLease is tolerated here when she posts on Shabbos, as she did again now and as I noted on the first page of this thread when she did it last week as well.
Even though PuhLease says she is OTD, I don’t think it is right to allow her to publicly violate Shabbos right here in the coffee room by posting her comments made on Shabbos. (Per the timestamp, it was Shabbos at the time of the post in America, Europe and Israel. And she previously indicated she lives in the US.)
Sorry, I didn’t pay attention to the time.
There is no such thing as a “Chareidi” or “Yeshivish”. Those who people refer to as “Chareidim” have mostly never referred to themselves as such – in America you can go to Yeshiva from Kindergarten through Kollel and you will most probably never hear “we are Chareidi” (or “Yeshivish”) and you may even never hear the term used at all.
I generally do not use the adjective “chareidi” because it is misleading. It originated in Eretz Yisroel as a way to describe those who followed the Eidah HaChareidis as opposed to the Rabanut. But it has evolved, and has come to mean basically anyone who is not Modern Orthodox/Religious Zionist. But then it is simply the generic, default, traditional manner of being frum. And by using a brand name for the generic you are giving the impression that it is not the generic.
Chareidim do not follow any specific teachings of any specific Rebbi, nor do they believe in any specific values not already in the Torah. Chasidim follow the specific teachings of the Baal Shem Tov and his disciples; Telzers follow the teachings and Minhagim of the Telzer Yeshiva; the Mussar movement was started by Rav Yisroel Salanter – but “Chareidi”? There was no beginning to “Chareidism” except on Har Sinai; no particular person whose teachings they follow except Moshe Rabbeinu, and no particular Minhagim they perform.
And because words matter – it’s a strange thing but people often tend to form impressions of reality based on words and phrases rather than creating words and phrases that reflect reality – I do not use the term “Chareidi” because by giving the generic, default Judaism a label it conceals the fact that this Judaism is in fact the generic and default.
I see some Chaveirim guys now have a parking placard in their windshield. Does this entitle them to parking in restricted zones? (Some also have lights and sirens.)
not am yisrael, you lack any rachmanus on the yidden who tragically lost their neshamos to the iShmutz.
Such conceit, ayc. You harbor contempt for Yekkes too. One thing I can assure you, the inventor of the cellphone (and its far more sinister derivatives) murdered more souls in one year than the the knife killed in 100 years.
ayc, You should ask mechila from those that lost their neshoma (which much worse than losing ones guf) thanks to destructive technology.
You’re mocking halacha, ayc?
What a zchus the guy who invented the gun, the atom bomb, and gas chambers must be receiving in gan eden!
Atom bombs don’t kill people, people kill people.
It was a good think she kicked the bucket when she did rather than her continue to spread her immorality. Well deserved too, after she did what she did.
The girls don’t belong overseas unattended by their parents for a year. For what?
Halachicly it is ganeiva to report him.
