Yichus: Jews are much much better and greater than goyim in ALL respects. Period. It’s not even a close call.
mdd: Nursing is known to pass herpes.
Do you propose nursing (and anything else that contains risk) be banned? Or is the proposal only that the ban apply to the stuff G-d told us to do?
Great point, ndg. The anti-semites (including the self-hating Jews with or without a yarmulka) have no logical explanation why they wish to forcibly ban MBP all the while allowing other activities with greater risks (such as breastfeeding, as you elequently pointed out) to continue unabated.
Sam vs. the Achronim.
Sam, please don’t be embarassed to recognize that Yidden are far better than goyim.
I agree with WIY. You petty imbecilec trolls ought to lay off with your idiotic comments. aurora is one of the most genuine posters ever on these boards.
Sam: You aren’t arguing with WIY. You are arguing with the holy Achronim cited here. You think they didn’t know the counterarguments you present here?
Do Yeshivas like Mir, Torah V’Daas, Chaim Berlin, etc. do these classics in high school nowadays?September 20, 2012 10:13 pm at 10:13 pm in reply to: Not Eating Chrein Between Rosh Hashana and Hoshana Rabba #897157
Frummy: Thanks for explaining my question (correctly.) One thing I will add is that one must’nt change their mesorah or family minhagim without an extremely good justificiation. There is even an old proverb of “minhag k’halacha”.
TCG: There IS a halachic requirement to eat meat sometimes. (See the discussion here earlier for one current example. Korbon Pesach is another historical and future example.)
It is pure sheker and l”h to assert that the yiddishe shochtim today mistreat the animals.
Obviously Gottfredson is referring to a comparison between two individuals performing the same job, with the same training background, one with a higher IQ and the other with a lower IQ.
rob: The Sefardim and Teimanim do MBP. And the Ari was Ashkenazi (as was his father.) His mother was Sefardi.
How do your brothers know your SN here?
Could it work if a shy guy married a quiet girl?
But it is SO much harder these days….
Sam: It would defy logic to assert that a straw or squeeze was used. Such an obviously disingenuous claim (if asserted) is a clear attempt to deny the obvious. It makes no sense to have gone from a straw to b’peh.
Sam: You can prove metzitza is thousands of years old, and it wasn’t done with a sterile tube 2,000 years ago.
Sam: How do you suppose Chazal performed metzitza? You thought they used a sterile tube?
Sam: Mishna Shabbos 19:2, Gemora Shabbos 133b.
We’ve been performing MBP at least since prior to Chazal’s time. So measuring the timeframe in thousands of years is indeed correct.
A Jewish judge can’t handle a case that violates arkoyos. Saying that since there are frum judges on the bench so they must somehow have been allowed to violate arkoyos, doesn’t make any sense. How is the prohibition overcome?

If Mr. Green brought about such achdus among Orthodox, Conservative, Reform and Reconstructionists Jews, as AZOI.IS indicated, all while entertaining them at the same time, who is to complain?
Feif: I don’t know what that is, but he is probably someone different than who Sam is referring to anyways.
Thank you, aurora.
What is the distance in city driving?
I’m sorry that you don’t “approve” of Rav Shlomo Zalman and Rav Elyashev.
“none of the Poskim read it Kipshuto.”
Aha! There’s the answer in your own words! All the poskim say something and them some yodle comes along the highway and matirs what is assur, “against everyone else” as you so elequently put it?
See, after thinking about it a little bit you figured out the answer yourself! 🙂
Sam: So I can kill all those girls I see talking ‘n driving?
Radar detectors are legal in NY.
No it isn’t a defense at all.
And yet you still cannot produce a coherent defense for it.
So you’re the baki, I take it, to find it defendible?
This opinion is indefensible.
It’s not just the past sinning. It’s the active and ongoing sinning of have the device (and its sinful capabilities that the rabbanum in EY made a takana against.) Upholding the takana is legit.
Perhaps that is your wife posting?
And yushke rising from the dead is more believable that Smith?
What did you get a ticket for?
Not every rabbi’s opinion is defensible.
That was written for soldiers involuntarily drafted (i.e. into the Czar’s Army.)

You don’t need a secular education to learn math. It’s right in the Gemora.
HaGaon HaRav Dovid Cohen shlit”a has a Sefer called “Yiddish: The Holy Tongue” (written in Yiddish, of course.)September 4, 2012 10:37 pm at 10:37 pm in reply to: What's the point of participating in an opinion based online forum? #894954
For intellectual stimulation.
Curiosity: While that may be true for many or even most, for others the benefits may be worthwhile. The decision needs to be made on an individual basis.
aurora: You’re mother spoke some Yiddish words even though she was brought up as a non-Jew?
The Cherem was established because the goyim were persecuting the Yidden since the goyim were jealous Yidden could have more than one wife, while the goyim’s religion prevented them from doing so. (Limiting to one wife is inheritantly a Christian value, not a Jewish one.)
Which is also why the Cherem was only accepted by Yidden in Christian lands, while the Sephardim and other non-Ashkenazim (i.e. Teimanim) never accepted the Cherem and continued to be allowed to have multiple wives.
Now that Christian persecution of Jews is B”H mostly a thing of the past, I don’t see why we couldn’t do so again today. (BTW, the Fundamentalist Mormons openly practice polygamy in America today. They even have a tv show about one such family. Mitt Romney is a regular Mormon, and his great grandparents were polygamists.)
According to the CDC, NYC has the cleanest tap water is the country, and is one of only three places in the U.S. that is exempt from filtering its water, since it is so pure.
You can’t be Mechallel Shabbos to prevent your collegue from being penalized (with 100 pushups or whatever.)September 3, 2012 3:18 pm at 3:18 pm in reply to: What Food Item Would You Like To See Get A Hecsher? #895459
