i support the state of gelt & not the state of chabad. it seems to be a more powerful state then chabad
i agree with baltimore maven
but lets not forget that baltimore is approximately 15 years behind lakewood, versus cleveland 23 years behind etc… meaning in 15 years if baltimore continues growing at their current pace then baltimore can be just as much traffic & squashed in growth as lakewood is today besides the other destructive gashmius that has removed the kedusha from the original ihr Hatorah that Lakewood used to be of Harav Aharon Kotler ZT”L Which was filled with torah, simplicity, ruchnius etc…. Baltimore is blessed to still be filled with simplicity & Torah but not as holy as Cleveland which is even more Kadosh & filled with plain simple people even more devoted to ruchnius & torah etc…
only 25 years ago & all the years back since Rav Aharon Kotler ZT”L Opened up BMG in Lakewood it used to be as quiet & kodesh as south fallsburg is today. a small community totally devoted to torah & even the working parents do work in Avodas Hakodesh.
its a shame that kedusha left lakewood & instead was replaced with gashmius
Cleveland is the next lakewood. it is what lakewood was approximately 25 years ago, a simple town devoted to torah & growth that people are moving to so they can devote themselves to a life of torah & raise a torah family, Like Harav Aharon Kotler ZT”L Devoted his life to doing BUT Today Lakewood sadlt will never be that pure torah town it used to be. go visit lakewood today & see a business city like brooklyn with the fanciest restaurants & luxury clothing stores etc….
if you want to devote your married life to torah i would suggest moving to Cleveland or to a out of town community kollel that has no distractions of gashmius that is now filled all over Lakewood.
may Hashem give you Hatzlacha & guide you to the right community

if you want to make a risk-free investment then invest in charity its an eternal investment that can’t go bad & the stocks always go up, you don’t need to check on wall street every day where its holding you know already it went up in value. It also stays with you forever, while all other money is not even worth counterfeit once a person is niftar & heads to the olam Haemes its totally worthless paper.

Many more tips but too much to write
thank you YWN MODS
I guess i was right about the shocking messages i sent earlier. their too shocking for people reading the coffeeroom & are only for people who can take these shocking wake-up messages from Hashem seriously.
thank you for your great MOD work. after all that is your job
Boruch Hashem We have tzaddikim in every generation, these tzaddikim live a life of torah & know the entire shas & poskim backwards & forwards. Why is it that they are able to remember everything-from Shas to poskim & Shulcan aruch etc…- but we are not? If i ask 1000 people, everyone will give the same answer, of course Harav Chaim Kanievsky makes a siyum hashas every erev pesach & this Tzaddik learns Shulchan aruch 4 times a year etc… YES that is true BUT that is only the truth from this world (the olam Hasheker) what the truth from the olam Haemes? Whats Hashems Chashban? Hashem created each person with a brain & a memory, he also created something called forgetfulness, the only problem is if there was no such a thing as forgetfulness then everyone would say i learnt the entire Mishna Brura from beginning to end, so theres no need for me to review the Halachos of Pesach before Yom Tov. (or any other halachic situation) But when it comes to Tzaddikim-who learn day & night even though they remember it from last time-they don’t learn it once Be’eyun (seriously) & the next 50 times be’kiyus (lightly). Every time they learn it, its with the same Ahavas Hatorah as the first time they learned it (if they’re not reviewing it then they’re learning it in a whole new way) so there’s no need for forgetfulness & why shouldn’t Hashem give them Hatzlacha to remember everything? (do you think Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky SHLITA or any other Rosh Yeshiva or Mashgiach learn any less because they know the entire shas & shulchan aruch from beginning to end by heart?) Going from Torah to Ahavas Hatorah is not going from level 1 to 2, it’s actually going from level 1 to level 40, there are so many steps & levels between these 2 classes until a person can reach this high level of a Gadol Hador, where this is their Simchas Ha’chaim (happiness in life). While one persons Simchas Ha’chaim is a million dollars, anothers is a vacation or a fancy car etc… Torah is what gives these Tzaddikim a Simchas Ha’chaim. Now YOU can also become a gadol Hador & grow in Torah-with the proper work & effort-its never too late (even Rabbi Akiva started at 40 & look what a tzaddik he became)
if you pull up Rabbi google on the web you cant press “back” when done cause the webpage becomes shaimos lol
NO. a person is forbidden from embarrassing himself. unless its for a mitzva & mesiras nefesh & will be role modeling showing all his talmidim how low he will stoop for mesiras nefesh he will do for a mitzva
for any real shailos regarding yiddishkeit & halacha: he is uneffective cause it is against halacha to go to him & his computer sefer for these issues.
for jewish history & buying jewish products & locating them etc… he is a great tech rabbi to help you find them & even get some wisdom from him.
Send him regards next time you use him
they keep on reviewing their learning over & over again non-stop. there is never enough times for then to stop & it stays in them.
REVIEWING IS THE MOST IMPORTANT KEY TO LEARNING TORAHOctober 15, 2017 12:40 am at 12:40 am in reply to: Moving to the suburbs to escape the Orthodox ghetto #1380549
moving away from the busy city can actually bring you closer to Hashem when a person wants to move to a quite suburb to devote himself to a life of torah & ruchnius & away from gashmius in Brooklyn NY or other big cities.
Lakewood used to be a little town that people moved to if they were ready to devote their life to torah & ruchnius. To sad that today its values have changed (all for a few peoples pockets to fill) & now it is a city filled with fancy restaurants & the most exquisite ladies clothing stores etc….
Cleveland today is a good example of the original Lakewood. It is a town of simplicity & ruchnius if you are ready to serve Hashem then Cleveland[& other quite simple & frum communities] are a great location to focus on serving Hashem with no distractions of gashmius filled physical pleasures & desires. I remember 20 years ago when Lakewood was kadosh like cleveland is today with no yetzer haras of gashmius to distract you from focusing on a life of ruchnius
Brooklyn is filled with distractions & desires. removing a person from FULLY focusing on his ruchnius & serving Hashem
how many times will every yid be screaming out to Hashem tomorrow on Hoshana rabba “HOSHANA L’MAANCHA…”? HUNDREDS of times (perhaps it even reaches over a thousand) but how can YOU expect to be saved by Hashem if YOU are not ready to accept his direct tragic wake-up calls for teshuva????? theres only a few hours left until the last day of last years sins of teshuva is over at shkia tonight. WAKE UP MY LOVING BRETHREN WAKE UP…. we dont need any more horrific wake-up calls,
“Nothing in life is coincidence” every tragedy has a direct message/reason from Hashem.
may we all finally wake up to “FACE REALITY” & each person admit to his problems so s/he can work on themselves to solve them (from ruchnius to gashmius problems) %80 percent of solving any issue is admitting to the problem a person has.

most people only burn their 3 minim of lulav with the other 2 attached, before PesachOctober 8, 2017 11:53 pm at 11:53 pm in reply to: Simcha and pride in being jewish. Especially yom tov season. #1379258
educate your children with each yom tovs specialties & that goyim do not get to dance with the sweet Torah Hashem gave us or the excitement of each part of the Pesach seder that goyim do not get to take part in etc….
you can find the sweetness of each mitzva & the specialty of it if you look a little deep into it.
chessed is when someone does a kind deed to someone that is more then normal & also someone that goes out of his way for someone in a case when he was not responsible to & could have just told him we dont sell A++ esrogim only regular esrogim but the person is desperate so the seller seeks another seller & helps him get a top A++ esrog he wanted. thats going out of his way & is a big chessed
sure after 40 years of devotion & loyalty she deserves a raise but not after 1 or 2 years when it comes to just 3 or 6 hours a week
part time can get a raise too but not a cleaning lady who just works once or twice a week for a few hours total.
please learn your definitions & understand why cleaning help or a waiter that only works once a week doesnt deserve a raise versus full or part time
part time=9am-1pm or 1pm-5pm etc..
cleaning help=once or twice a week for a few hours (is she comes every day t oclean then shes a full time worker & deserves a raise after working for you for a long time)
1)were not talking about underpaid, she is getting the correct pay but wants more then what she is getting now.
2)when you work full time then yes workers get raises after a year of devoted work & each worker get his raise privately between boss & worker. this is cleaning help that comes to your home once or twice a week that we are talking about
finishing up yom kippur. no cleaners can clean anyones black or navy dirty suit. the person first has to clean himself & THEN upon coming out fresh & newly clean for a sin free year ahead he can start to clean his belongings
the medrash says that when mashiach comes the moon will become as bright as the sun is now & the sun will become 6 times as bright as it is now.
you misunderstood, sure you can say no & she can leave the job on her own if she will only stay if you give her that raise but if you give in to her demand for a raise then you will soon be causing all your friend & neighbors & entire community to be paying the new higher price demanded as word spreads in the cleaning ladies union.October 1, 2017 10:59 pm at 10:59 pm in reply to: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Why Are Guys Stuck With The Dating Bills? #1376308
dating does cost but you can go on many less expensive dates & still have a nice time. you can go to plaxes like star bucks or Barnes & nobles or go down town & walk around the buildings, go to parks & many other reasonable things to do to have an enjoyable & affordable date.
Anytime she asks for a raise. Besides it not being a full time job to ask for raises your also going to be the cause for all your neighbors & friend having to pay more for their cleaning help cause they will also ask for a raise.
how will you ever make up for the loss of everyone higher cost of cleaning help?
thats the problem affecting the ENTIRE WORLD today (jewish or not) it s called “FACING REALITY”
What happens today when tragedy strikes? everyone blocks it fom his face & says to themselves “what does hashem want from me?” i have nothing to do with 9/11 i dont work in NY i dont even go visit NY. i dont know who leiby Kletzky is…. but the truth is that we get Hashems wakeup call for teshuva in the back of our heads were just not ready to accept reality & tell Hashem that yes we get your message & we will do teshuva so that we dont need more tragedies to happen C”V. “we can’t fool Hashem” a person is the fool if he thinks he can fool Hashem. its one of the 13 ani maamins/ priorites of faith to be a yid. that hashem knows every thought that goes through a persons mind…..
may we finally all wake up to reality & face it. ex. better to face a problem when its small then live in denial & wait until its a much bigger problem. rather its about a child falling behind in school or a tiny health issue that can grow much worse C”V
This is what i posted here last week but the editor for some reason didnt post it writing:
what you wrote & explaining that first Hashem sends us a hint to wake to teshuva by hitting other nations with tragedies so we ask ourselves why is this happening. if this sadly Chas vshalom does not work then sometimes klal yisroel needs to be hit by tzaros R”L (as we see in the solomon family in Nvei Tzuf to the 3 soldiers in Hadas aram etc….)
Hashem is not waiting for personal teshuva, that was just done yesterday on yom Kippur. Hashem is waiting for ALL klal yisroel to come together for international teshuva of achdus & bein adam lchaveiro. to return together as one loving nation from all levels of frum to reform to chasidish etc…
may it happen very soon so we can spend succos at the bais Hamikdosh rebuiltOctober 1, 2017 12:42 am at 12:42 am in reply to: Can someone help me put up my schach I’m not tall enough!!! #1374173
ever heard of using a ladder with your wife or child passing it to you while your on top of the ladder if you cannot carry it up while going up the ladder?
there are currently 2 bais medrash yeshivas in their building this year & they have rabbeim living there & some traveling there each day.
Miss the days when i was a student in the original-now legendary- Adelphia Yeshiva
Thank you Rabbi Shain Shlita for all you did for klal yisroel & still continue doing today
Are the streets of toronto as tight living & grided like boro park or is it more spread out & roomy?
gemar chasima tova to everyone in the Coffeeroom, in the tea room & in the Trump room & to gantz klal yisroel, yes even to the jewish crazy democrat senator Bernie SandersSeptember 24, 2017 1:12 pm at 1:12 pm in reply to: Is hanging pictures of leaders considered to be Avoda Zora? #1368150
if the household puts it up so he & his children can look at the tzaddik as a role model & hope to learn from his ways then it can be hanging in his home or office
on the other hand if it is a rebba or mekubal etc… that is looked at or viewed/treated like a g-d/avoda zara then it cannot be hanging in his house.
i.e. if you need someone to turn to or depend on then turn to Hashem for help. who is there more of a chance of being answered, Hashem straight or a messenger of Hashem
“Would you please explain the meaning of this portion of your comment: “the current obamacare which offers more coverage but is democrats & might not be the best versus trumpmcare that might not cover enough for the middle class frum family.”
What i meant is that if you support obamacare then it means you are going with democrat obama which we all know did not accomplish even 1 good thing in all 8 years he was president & is a muslim that hates Israel & did nothing for them all the years he was president BUT in this topic of healthcare he is better then trumps situation now of wanting to head towards repealing obamacare which would make healthcare much less affordable for the middle class who can now barely make ends meet with obamacare
“In particular, what do you mean when you say Obamacare “offers more coverage BUT IS DEMOCRATS.” If you want more coverage, and you know that Obamacare offers more coverage, what is the relevance of the political party that gave more votes in Congress for Obamacare?
As much as i am a republican & voted for trump cause he is better then hillary-who if she had won would have been worse then Obama- I believe staying with obamacare is better then trumps plan of repeal & replace it (although we don’t yet know what the new plan will be, theres a %95 chance that it will be worse -then obamacare-coverage for the middle class working person. I.E. if someone (obama) offers you a great deal but he’s a anti-semite or never keeps his word etc…. do you vote for him & hope that you get what he promised to give you (the only reason you voted for him according to your view) or vote for the other politician who you believe is the right person for almost everything?
“Re CTL’s comment: Yes, the proper name of Obamacare is Affordable Care Act, or ACA. Republicans started calling it “Obamacare” because they thought it would stigmatize the proposal before it was enacted. But the Obama name has stuck and will wind up as a tribute to the man that so many Republicans vilify. I’m OK with that.”
so does the obama phone use his name , which is why i don’t have one cause i don’t want to think about him (a sonei yisroel & bnei yishmael) every time i pickup to answer his phone
BDE to you MIL
