Joseph: “Does going into a Hindu Temple in NYC and destroying all the Idols a Kiddush Hashem or a Chilul Hashem?
I find that hard to believe. Do you have a source?July 28, 2019 8:00 pm at 8:00 pm in reply to: DO WE REALLY HAVE A GOOD EXCUSE TO LIVE IN CHUTZ LA'ARETZ? #1766258
According to most rishonim it’s a mitzvah deoraisa even these days to live in E”Y. According to some it’s a chiyuv. (See Rav Ovadia Yosef’s tshuva in the 11th chelek of Yabia Omer who prices that it’s a CHIYUV GAMUR to live in E”Y especially nowadays when it’s so much easier than before.) Anyone that has yiras shamayim must have a very good excuse for not living in E”Y. Just because there are non religious people there, doesn’t take away the Mitzvah and the Kedusha.December 31, 2018 4:40 am at 4:40 am in reply to: HELP – How Do I Stop Getting The Piece Of Trash Lehovin Newspaper? #1654173
Can everyone please stop taking with such hatred? We’re all.. brothers regardless of our different points of view. The Bais Hamikdash was destroyed because of sinas chinam and will be rebuilt when we have ahavas chinam.
Read the Teshuva, Rav Elyashiv says in regards to the Beis halevi’s reason for not wearing the Radzyner’s techeiles (that if people were dyeing with it since the time we had techeiles it’s as if we have a mesorah that this is not it) ״אנא לא ידענא״ if this טענה applies to the murex techeiles. Which (I think) means he didn’t look into it entirely because it’s known that the Romans banned using the murex dye.
I heard rabbi forscheimer says it’s not kosher, I don’t know why though. Does anyone know what the problem could be? (It says on the website it doesn’t cut as close as a razor)
All the reasons not to techeiles are at best a heter that you’re not mechuyav to wear it. But there is no one saying that it’s assur, therefore logically anyone with yiras shomayim should be jumping to have a chance to be mekayem a mitzva de’oraisa that we didn’t have for 1000 years
mms601 – “It was completely a one sided presentation, without objectively presenting the halachakic pros and cons of coloring ones tzitzes with murex dye.”
As far as I know there aren’t any halachic “cons” to wearing blue strings, or any other color for that matter.
Forshayer- thanks I’ll look into that but what about the number of blue strings? Why is it that the majority doesn’t hold like the Rambam?July 19, 2017 4:05 pm at 4:05 pm in reply to: Should we stop bochurim from chilling and drinking beer at a bbqs.🍻🍖 #1321143
Scottsdale21- I find it funny that u think drinking a beer is bad for shiduchim. Even the best bochurim chill and drink beer bein hazmanim. I would be more worried if your kids never drank beer
Are there any sefardim here who wear techeiles? I want to start wearing and i’m not sure how many strings. Being that the Mechaber always paskens like the Rambam unless the Rif and Rosh argue, shouldn’t sefardim wear one string (half)?
You guys are forgetting the main reason why bochurim don’t wanna go to BMG- the freezer! Many guys love learning in Eretz Yisrael and only come back to America to date
People have to understand that everyone has a different taste in music. Just because you dont like a certain style, doesnt mean its bad. In fact it is uplifting to others and brings them closer to Hashem. Most (if not all) of the frum singers making modern sounding music are doing so in order that the younger generation will not go to non jewish music, since old jewish music does not sound good to most of them. And btw the jewish sounding music of nowadays was considered crazy not so long ago.
Definitely Gad Elbaz- Unreal voice both powerful and emotional, and amazing songs, both fast and slow, hebrew and english (check out his new album L’chaim)
Rebyidd- where’s your source? according to you many of the nigunim from rosh hashana and yom kippur are asurDecember 22, 2016 1:18 pm at 1:18 pm in reply to: The Sephardim's Relationship to Ashkenazim in Israel? #1205857
You have to understand there’s a big difference between sfardim in Israel and in the US. I’m not gonna go into details but ashkenazim in Israel know that and usually have no problem accepting american sfardim into their schools
if the music makes you happy and the words are good, then automatically it will make you want to be a better person because thats what happens when your’e in a good mood and for some people EDM is what makes them happy and someting like mbd makes them frustrated at judaism
@apushatayid I said classic Jewish music not classical, meaning mainstream Jewish music which I hope I don’t have to describe to you.
P.s. Yaakov shwekey is coming out with a new album later today
I’m talking about music that for some people will bring them closer to Hashem even if it sounds wild to other people (like Hashem Melech) as long as it doesn’t make you angry or want to do aveiros I don’t see the problem. And it doesn’t have to be taken from goyish tunes, there are plenty of talented frum people who can make different styles of music, the problem is there’s no market for it because a lot of people are close minded and won’t accept anything that doesn’t sound like its from the 1800’s. So people copy goyish songs because it’s a lot cheaper and faster than making original music. If only people were more open minded there would be a lot less teenagers listening to goyish music which often leads to a lot worse things.
Jerks who think they’re perfect and never make mistakes
@sefardiguy Senders in monsey or Senters in israel? they’re both not MO
I’m sfardi i grew up eating sfardi foods and i like ashkenazi food better
