DY, the poster 42 mentioned (and you linked to) posted about a minute or two ahead of the poster squeak mentioned, on the CR’s very first thread (which can be found easily), where they were the first non-mod comments. (This also doesn’t take into consideration posting on the main site, which precedes the CR.)
squeak, are you answering the title or OP? While you may be correct about the OP, you’d take the cake on the title. (-:
You are in good company. Moshe Rabbeinu had a stuttering problem.
So one should roll their shirt sleeve and/or jacket sleeve over their arm on top of the Retzuos and Tefilin? Certainly the Tefilin and preferably the Retzuous too?
Also, does anyone else have trouble getting their shirt sleeve over their arm and/or their jacket sleeve over their arm? Any suggestions?
A degree in “business”, imo, is almost useless (from any college). It has no meaning. You need something else that you can get a job with coming out of college with a bachelors. (Unless you intend to get a masters or doctorate.)
Does forgiveness require that you love or like the person as much as before he insulted or hurt you?
Goq: That sounds very bitter.
Wouldn’t you raise the issue with authority figures (parents, rebbeim) or even friends that you felt hurt? Why should this be different?
Since a child may be iy”H born as soon as 9 months after the wedding, the couple can bond during their shana rishona.
Shana rishona is taught as being important to chasanim and kallahs.
$20 a person for 100 people is $2,000. Overkill for a bas mitzvah and the OP said a $400 limit she wants.
akuperma: My understanding of the new law passed by Congress last night is that it ONLY raises taxes on individuals with income exceeding $400,000 or couples exceeding $450,000. Where does your $105,000 figure come from and what does it represent?
If you tell airport customs or security that you are taking a package for a stranger, how will they react?January 2, 2013 5:03 pm at 5:03 pm in reply to: Help! Have Gallstones; Can I Avoid Gallbladder Removal?? #925594
bb8: Are you saying the risk of cancer increases if someone with a gallstones problem does NOT have the surgery to remove it?
DY: If you were away from school for a couple months and the day you came back your teacher announced to the class “the pig is back”, you wouldn’t feel bullied?
The most important point is to make sure that your mother-in-law knows as soon as your mother knows. One should NOT get preferential treatment in knowing sooner than the other. Otherwise, you have a recipe for disaster.January 2, 2013 3:21 pm at 3:21 pm in reply to: how does Hashem want girls with good voices to use them? #917095
WIY: The vast majority of people who have a good singing voice, including men, never perform publicly. And they do not feel unfulfilled at all.January 2, 2013 3:16 pm at 3:16 pm in reply to: What did the dirty diaper-throwing individuals hope to accomplish? #917387
What is the penalty for misdemeanor littering? 400 NS fine?
gaw: Must he sell his shirt too and buy a cheaper t-shirt? That’s what your other must-sell items (i.e. hat) leads us to believe.
Use a frum barber.
ChanieE: You may not singlehandedly solve the homeless problem regardless of what you do, but the best practical suggestion for an ordinary person to help alleviate THIS problem is to give Tzedakah to organizations working on it (and there are such organizations) or better yet to give Tzedakah directly to homeless yidden.
A chup is hair that’s too long.
ChanieE: Give Tzedakah.
Usually the weather and the latest sports.
Canada and Australia call it soccer, much like the U.S.January 1, 2013 6:15 pm at 6:15 pm in reply to: how does Hashem want girls with good voices to use them? #917076

Presumably, by now, a decision was made one way or the other.
What does delayed mean?
Is it really that difficult to get a barber’s license?December 31, 2012 6:29 pm at 6:29 pm in reply to: Does the Gemoro say that we should have fewer children when times are tough? #916956
Yichusdik: You disagree with Rashi so you simply write Rashi off as being “inconsistent”?!?! That is simply mind-boggling.December 31, 2012 4:12 pm at 4:12 pm in reply to: Does the Gemoro say that we should have fewer children when times are tough? #916948
The idea, even in the form of a question, expressed in the title of this thread is borderline chutz lmachne.
The OP wrote that he already had a conversation with his wife and that it didn’t help.
Use coupons.May 24, 2012 4:09 am at 4:09 am in reply to: Video of Internet Asifa at CitiField – Full Video Feed for Satellite Locations #876241
Thanks again, JS. I was trying to save a copy for myself. I presume saving it from YT will be a lower quality than if done from the original. If it is complicated to describe how to do from the original, that’s okay. I appreciate your help.May 24, 2012 1:46 am at 1:46 am in reply to: Video of Internet Asifa at CitiField – Full Video Feed for Satellite Locations #876239
Just Smile: Thanks a bunch, that was very helpful. Did you copy that off the link in your OP? How did you manage to save it?
P.S. I thought YT had a time limit for videos. How’d you get past that?May 23, 2012 8:59 pm at 8:59 pm in reply to: Video of Internet Asifa at CitiField – Full Video Feed for Satellite Locations #876234
Is it possible to download the video feed from the above site and save it to your computer?
The litvish and chasidish have a different havara. Just as almost every language has people speaking it with different dialetcs. They are still the same language. And in almost all cases people speaking the same language with different dialetcs can easily communicate with each other.
Think Southern drawl.
The M”B says a hat is needed in addition to a yarmulka.May 23, 2012 7:22 pm at 7:22 pm in reply to: Whitelist vs. Blacklist & Remote vs. Local Internet Filtering #876460
Regarding ISP-side filtering, although in practice I think that all the Jewish services require human intervention to modify the filter, theoretically the ISP could setup a simple administrative password-based login to add sites to the filter. But even in such a case, it would still be more difficult for a non-administrator to hack around the filter compared to beating a local system based filter. Though as far as self-discipline for the admin himself, it would be all-too-easy to allow oneself past the filters via the administrative access.
Yidden always had a unifying language that was unique to Yidden. For the last thousand years, Yiddish has served this purpose. It is no coincidence that Roshe Yeshivos give their droshos in Yiddish in America, Eretz Yisroel and the world over.
Ladino is very uncommon even among Sefardim. And even those that know it, it is their second language, not first like Yiddish.
During the asifa the vast majority of yidden, even those not fluent in yiddish, were paying attention to the yiddish speaking rabbonim shlita. They were looking at the scrolling English translation at citifield or asking their neighbors (ie at the other venues) what the rabbonim were saying. Many got a sense even without a translation. Just like the Polish Minister who understood the Chofetz Chaim, who spoke in yiddish even though the Minister didn’t, and there was no translation.
I agree with rebdoniel about the problem of creating a get me’usa (and mamzeirim) by forcing a get kneged halacha.April 6, 2012 6:39 pm at 6:39 pm in reply to: The Longest Seder Contest�How Late Will Your Seder End? #1199585
We usually make a minyan for Sefira towards the end of the second Seder, and finish about 2:30 AM.April 6, 2012 2:42 pm at 2:42 pm in reply to: Problem Being Unable to Consume Much Alcohol – And Can't Get Drunk #866386
Sam: That would work, thanks. I could dilute the wine with grape juice and tolerate it just fine. Is it correct though that that would be lchatchila lchol hadeios? And does it matter with any deios how much is grape juice and how much is wine in the mix?
Also, does anyone think a very low alcholic content wine (i.e. 3.5%) might be more tolerable for the stomache? And if it is, is using such a wine entirely, more m’hudor than mixing a higher alcohol wine with grape juice?April 6, 2012 11:56 am at 11:56 am in reply to: Problem Being Unable to Consume Much Alcohol – And Can't Get Drunk #866384
popa: Yes, like mentioned earlier, I can perfectly tolerate any amount of grape juice. Yet, I would much prefer to use wine, and would appreciate suggestions as to what wines might be easier consumable.
Very relevant. Kabbala touches almost everything we do as Jews today.
What are the borders of halachic Eretz Yisroel?

So what do I do for the Seder? After the second Kos, my stomach is kicking from the wine.
Well, the eardrum busting musicians make sure no one would hear it anyways. Do the women hear the men sing despite the decibel volume of the band?
(You still have the dancing in front of men issue outstanding.)
