    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?

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    We usually make a minyan for Sefira towards the end of the second Seder, and finish about 2:30 AM.

    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?

    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.)
