    no negativity intended, just the honest truth.

    very sad where the young parents of today’s generation versus our parents i.e. the parents of last generation, they are the grandparents of today’s generation. the way our young parents of todays generation are raising our children is far from the proper way to be mechanech a frum torah family. raising our children with the fanciest toys & technologies starting from as young as 8 or even younger, giving in to our children’s demands versus last generation when we respected our parents & kindly asked for something we wanted hoping they will allow us to have it & get it for us. oohhhhhhhhhh nooooooooooo those days are over our children are making endless demand, but our neighbor has this toy or went on this vacation etc…. & spoiling our children with unlimited unnecessary things that do not belong in the book of “the proper ways of being mechanach our frum children of a torah family”

    Sure we need to spend lots of time with our children & give them lots of TLC so they are happy but theres a limit when we are pushing it & going too far with putting at risk the mitzva of raising our children the proper frum way. “Better safe then sorry” with the proper way then learn C”V THE HARD WAY for spoiling them & giving into them so much as they head down the derech into kids at risk C”V its not worth it.

    there are many differences including:

    Chassidim get married at much younger ages then litvish families

    Chassidish families the shidduch is chosen by both sets of parents & they don’t base it on the dating & how they feel about each other (which i think is totally misplaced making it sound like the parents know better then the actual boy & girl dating each other)

    lots of more differences but too many to list more

    Is there anything wrong with a regular yeshiva person biking to learn instead of driving? Is there something wrong with doing exercise or going to gym to stay in shape ? (As you make it sound like it’s wrong ) if a person lives not far from work is there something wrong with him biking there instead of driving there? Is biking below a man’s dignity after a certain age or an embarrassment? Live within your budget and get what you need NOT WHAT YOU WANT so if you can manage with a bike and don’t need a car for most of your errands and needs then go for it and save on your expenses and think about the future.

    The difference is that they believe hashem comes first but their rebbe is an inch after. That’s pushing it WAY TO FAR.

    Our rebbes and rabbis are messenger to help guide us through life but their not like a G-d

    Coffee is not what gives you the real caffeine for the day to keep you awake neither is it a good night sleep that keep you awake by day. Your strength comes directly from Hashem “Boruch hanosein layoef coach” don’t let your corrupt psychological mind (yetzer hara) fool you

    Participant

    Cause hatzolah volunteers are there to help their brethren in need of help to save lives. Once you start billing insurance you turn the entire life saving organization into a business and throw the chessed of helping your brothers away.

    I.e. if your going to bill insurance then I will just use a EMT service that is a business of providing ambulance services and other emergency help etc… Versus hatzolah volunteers acting as chessed when in truth it’s all business and their billing insurance.

    WE HELP OUR BRETHREN TO SAVE THEIR LIVES NOT TO MAKE MONEY

    1)Eisav sonei ess Yaakov. I.e. klal Yisroel will ALWAYS be hated by the other nations we are living amongst us.

    2)when the hatred grows and gets worse R”L we are ALL supposed to face reality and openly be honest with asking ourselves why is the hatred getting worse R”L? we all know itscnit coincidence. If we wake up now and take the message from Hashem. Then we can have it stopped right away and will not need any more wake up calls from Hashem for Teshuva.

    in reply to: The real reason for gifts instead of money #1633584
    jakob
    Participant

    If you give a gift instead f money then they will never know how much you paid for it no matter what the value is. You might have gotten a cheaper bulk value and they will never know how much you feel they are worth spending on a gift for them.

    My opinion is to always buy them a gift and not cash or a money gift card to a place and the product gift handed over and looked at has real value and shows real appreciation to the person given too even if it costs a mere few dollars. Otherwise you would need to start heading up starting from minimum $18 to $100 and maybe even a $1000 cash gift card to be enough to prove to the person your appreciation for them or they’re value for birthday etc….

    Your right. All medicine is bad and fake cause in real truth and HONESTY nothing and No one can heal you besides for Hashem. So if you know someone sick the only medicine you can take for a refuah is tefilla to Hashem for a healing.

    Time for serious teshuva as one loving nation together On all levels from frum to Frei to chassidish etc and stop the sinas chinam occurring in klal Yisroel today. How can we expect mashiach to come when the sinas chinam today is worse then the days of the bais Hamikdosh that was destroyed because of sinas chinam?

    Hashem is not waiting for the personal Yom Kippur teshuva. We need to return with teshuva to a loving nation of achdus together as one no matter how Jewish we are including Bernie Sanders and Mark Zuckerberg.

    A holocaust survivor that was hiding during the Pittsburgh attacks said this reminds him of the pre-war Nazi days. Start making aliya to Israel before things get really bad and the anti-Semitism gets worse than it is already C”V

    May this start happening ASAP before any tragedy strikes C”V

    In the Muslim bible it says ” there’s a rock behind you kill him” Muslims believe that the word rock is referring to a jew and just like we have a mitzva to destroy amalek, they have a mitzva to destroy Jews.

    For a Muslim being a suicide bomber. They feel like they have nothing to lose and 3 things to gain 1)they believe that they will go straight to heaven 2)they’re family
    gets life support from the PA government and3) they get to kill Jews.

    Bnei Yishmael-muslims, which includes iran, iraq, saudia arabia, Afghanistan and the Palestinians etc….-will be the last ones to fight klal Yisroel before mashiach comes.

    May mashiach be here very soon-we just need to first do teshuva as one loving nation together

    Cleveland is the new original Lakewood

    Cleveland today is what lakewood was approximately 22 years ago. People moved to lakewood to devote their lives to Torah bit sadly that has all changed-so a few people could pocket the money -to a town filled with the fanciest restaurant and ladies exquisite clothing stores etc that don’t belong in a town devoted and built for Torah by Rav Aaron Kotler ZTL

    now that is what Cleveland is today. A beautiful small Torah community with telz yeshiva and free education to raise a Torah family

    If a person doesn’t have a way to return the stolen money either because he doesn’t know who it belongs to or another reason then the seforim say he should do community service work so that whoever he stole it from will gain from his work and it will be like his pay

    Or he can give it to tzedaka and Hashem Has A Way For It Get Back To The Person He Stole It from

    Some of the card I have saved in a pile are from over 10 years ago, they really bring back happy memories and friends or family who value you nd it really doesn’t take up a lot of space.

    All news media is fake news.

ALL MEDIA NEWS from websites to newspapers etc…-HAVE AN AGENDA yes even Jewish media (who are the role models and should really be %100 honest true news) have an AGENDA and yes money talks so if you pay them gelt….. They will make the most dishonest corrupt person/company (like crooked hillary) sound honest and make it into a nice story. And IT WORKS THE SAME VICE VERSA.

    Welcome to the dishonest and corrupt world where your human psychological mind (yetzer hara) convinces the most frum person that he can do something even though he knows that it’s pure stealing.

    don’t own 3 cars and 3 vacations a year and then be shocked when a person is broke and in dept C”V wake up to reality and face the issues a person has. Yes making a wedding and school tuition is a lot of money. So wife/husband we are running right and cannot afford to send our kids to camp or go on our usual summer vacation this year etc…..

    Don’t lease. You pay more each month and end up with nothing at the end.

    Of you can’t afford a used car then save up money for a few months until you can afford it otherwise but it with financing which is still costly but much better then leasing a car and ending up with nothing

    Hatzlacha

    Note: sure buying a home cost tons and requires a mortgage which accounting says at the end of 30 years a person pays approximately DOUBLE the amount he bought the house for.

    So if you don’t NEED to buy a house now it might be wiser to save up money and wait longer and then when you need it have more then the minimum %20 required to buy the house
    Versus buying now as a young new couple with just the minimum needed to close and pay DOUBLE what the house is bought for.
