    Rabbi of Crawley-That is awesome! I have never been there and can give you no advice but that is a place I have wanted to go visit. Such a pretty place. I’m obviously scared to go because it is a Muslim country. Are you going for pleasure or for business? Are you not afraid?

    I heard that for Sephardic Cohanim they are not even allowed to marry an almanah. She has to have never been married before…Is this true?

    Generally speaking.

    I personally know of people that had to home-school (online) their children because Yeshivah was too expensive and the limudei chol education that they were receiving was not so good at these yeshivas. However, these children missed out on making friends and having a set schedule to learn Torah.

    My thoughts are being pulled in two directions because of this. I value education and think that it is really important but the social factor is equally as important. I only wish that there were Yeshivot that value these two things as I and so many other people do. If tuition has become such a crisis, why isn’t anyone doing anything about it? So many children end up in public schools and they could go off the derech.

    “For all practical purposes, Edot HaMizrach and Sepharadim from Spain get lumped together in one category of “dark, exotic non-Ashkenazim”.

    Not saying it’s right or wrong, but that’s the reality.”

    Not the reality. Sephardim from Spain are actually very pale with dark hair.

    So from what I’m hearing is that it would be much cheaper for children to be home-schooled. Would you however take that route at the cost of the children’s social life?

    AND

    Has anyone ever done limudei kodesh at school/yeshivah and limudei kol at home? Do schools make such arrangements and lower the tuition cost for that?

    Sephardic Weddings:

    -Chuppah is by the Ahron HaKodesh

    -Chattan & Kallah are not allowed to fast on the day of their wedding

    -There is no “Yichud Room” (its considered a “davar mechuar”)

    -There is no “bedeken”

    -Kallah doesn’t circle the chattan 7 times

    -Couple usually faces the guest under the chuppah and the Rabbi’s back is to the guest

    -The “aufruf” is the shabbat after the wedding called an “Avram siz”

    So, I was going to take the old lady costume idea but now some kids told me that they are going to dress like an old lady and now I have no costume! because then they are going to say that I copied them. What do I do??!! I need some more ideas please. I am really bad with ideas for costumes.

    I learnt that when techiyat hametim happens, we are all going to see/recognize each neshama the way we knew it last. Since more than one person can have the same neshama (gilgulim) the physical body doesnt come together with the body at techiyat hammetim. For example, you can recognize one neshama as your grandfather and someone else can recognize the same neshama as their brother without you two even being related.

    It’s kind of a hard concept to try to understand what will happen but this is how I understand it. There could be more theories.

    I agree with WIY. I think it looks inappropiate for a bat Torah to wear once she starts getting older. Its a very much American mentality for those of you who say “Why not wear them, they are so comfortable.” Just like Americans like to wear pyjamas when they go out to do their errands. Why, not? “They are so comfortable”. It looks really bad.

    “…why do you have to add more chumras to an already very limited life style?”

    MorahRach, do you really feel that you have a very limited lifestyle?

    “The children of a jewish mother and non-jewish father are NON Mamzerim.

    Halachically a Non-Jewish father is not a father”

    What would be the status of a child if the mother was Jewish, father was not but then later the father converted and married the childs mother under the chupah?

    Does the father only become the childs halachik father after conversion?

    shein- Because you can’t really control the type of kids your children make frinds with at school.

    Even though you are sending your children to a frum/yeshivish school, it doesn’t necessarily mean everyone who goes there are as frum as you are.

    I would assume Shabbos clothes. Being that it is a “Torah” (religious) event, some kavod is required.

    Basicly what MorahRach said. What are some things that made you or could make someone OTD? Are there certain personalities that could make someone become OTD living in such a religious environment or living in a more modern one?

    And BTW, thanks for willing to share and help others.

    My family is really frum and I feel like one of my brothers is starting to go OTD because he hates sitting down in Yeshiva. He is still young and I don’t want to make it sound like a bad thing. I just hope that just because he hates sitting in Yeshiva it doesn’t mean that he has to become less frum or go OTD. Is there any specific way he should be guided?

    Apology accepted.

    I just don’t like anyone telling me something is assur unless they give me a source. The word “assur” shouldn’t be used so loosly.

    For anyone reading this thread and seeing that dating more than once is assur might have felt like they broke halacha while they were dating more than one person at a time. It might not look right according to many but it doesn’t mean it’s against halacha.(Unless I’m wrong?)

    “but its completely stupid since it will confuse the dater and have him/her making comparisons.”

    But wouldn’t this also help the dater have a clear mind of what type of person they really want by being able to compare?

    I have a love of languages and they all sound fascinating to me but if I had to pick, then the worst would be German

    and best: Spanish, but only when spoken in a real spanish accent and French.

    “You can use the water for washing, then drink it.”

    WHAT?! I thought it was dangerous to drink from the water that one uses to wash their hands with. That’s why we make sure to dry our hands before we touch bread.
