Happy birthday to you. it must be your birthday today with becoming 1 year older now
you are right that this world is a was te of time cause in truth it says in seforim including pirkei avos that this-temporary & physical-world is simply just a-long & bumpy-path to take us to the next world which is the olam haemes-the true real world.
so if a person is niftar young C”V the positive side is that he is now actually doing better then if he would still be alive & remain in this temporary physical worldSeptember 12, 2017 6:14 am at 6:14 am in reply to: How much unproductive time do you spend online each day? #1361517
way too much time wasted
rather its in the coffeeroom many times throughout the day or its reading news for probably average 2.5 hours a day. that an insane amount of precious time wasted just on reading the news. i wish i could stop but i feel the need to know whats going on worldwide.
why is reading news a waste of time when a person should know what happening around the world? the answer is this news happening does not affect you & if there is something local to you that effects you & you need to know about it then trust me you will find out about it a different way without reading the news you read on the web
its all in the hands of Hashem what will happen during Jose. its in our hands with the gift of free-will to decide if we have had enough homes destroyed in Harvey & Irma together with many other public tragedies if we are all ready to do teshuva & make a final halt to all future tzaros in klal yisroel.
i.e. Hashem can stop it right now but only if we accept his wake-up calls for teshuva & finally do something about it & not just sit around watching all the tzaros go from tragic to horrific. a person today would need to be crazy to watch all this & live in denial thinking that this is all coincidence & we can just sit around without doing teshuva for the sins thats are causing these tragedies to occurSeptember 11, 2017 11:48 am at 11:48 am in reply to: Why is the frum world seeing more divorces while it’s dropping by the secular? #1360459
the jewish divorce rate is higher because many FRUM yidden have R”L joined facebook which is the website that has cause THOUSANDS & THOUSANDS of divorces & intermarriagesSeptember 5, 2017 9:41 am at 9:41 am in reply to: Ok…About The Whole Hair Measuring Thing…Please Help Me Understand 👧📏✂️ #1354716
Posting on Social media went live to remind people that:
1)they are being watched by Hashem 24-7 & you can’t hide from Hashem for Hashem sees everything &
2)to put pressure on people & let them know that if they do not act properly-as in this case & thousands more-then it will be found out all over the world in just a few hours & they will have alot of remorse & its really not worth it so just be an honest person & do what is the right thing & NOT what YOU want to do. trust me its just not worth it, a persons entire life can go down the drain over 1 stupid thing (as in this case over measuring innocent girls hair & the bad name it has put on this school forever & has been read & video watched WORLDWIDE)
HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY
Usually the seats of eating tables are not Right in front or beside the loud music their usually in the back center of the dancing floor which makes the loud music much lower by the time it reaches way out to the eating tables around the hall
if you cant stand the loud music then move further away from the stage where the speakers & players are all workingSeptember 3, 2017 7:08 am at 7:08 am in reply to: The key to ending intermarriage in the Jewish world #1353331
that will not be enough to stop it you also first need to remove “Facebook” the website/issue that has caused from thousands to almost millions of intermarriages & divorces
“The OP’s point is that our mainstream yeshivos can easily be more inclusive by providing a wider array of services. Some of this requires additional staff with specialized training. Other ideas might be better training of the regular staff/faculty. Both of these are likely to meet up with considerable resistance. So even to the degree that we may agree with the OP, remaining skeptical that these ideas will fly is predictable.”
That is the problem, that we are letting the people on the top-Principles & school administrators-choose that its not worthwhile to invest in training the teachers to implement the new methods. The system is broken, our schools pretend that all students are A students or at least average & there is no such thing as a struggling student IN THEIR SCHOOLS. this is why it is time to take a stand & find ways to help our students instead of just standing by & watching them struggle. It has gotten so bad that the struggling students feel they have no one or no where to turn to as in the case Of Malky Klein A”H. If we all take a stand on this issue then IY”H there won’t be another Malky Klein Situation
perhaps Rabbi Berger’s Yeshiva in Lakewood would be a good suggestion.
sure they don’t like each other, cause chabad believes they are the 1st & only ones worldwide doing kiruv all over in every tiny town while in truth Breslov also does kiruv just in a different way-through chizuk stories of kiruv with rav nachman & other ways etc…
chabad also hates all the fame of breslov in uman for yomim noraim & wish chabad can get the same popularity & fame for their living rebbe forever
no i’m not breslov or Chabad, neither do i have any Rebba when i need help i go & call straight to Hashem from my heart. karov Hashem lchol….. as the mussar seforim say, when you depend on 2 things i.e. Hashem & a rebba also then you lose both, so who do you choose can help you more Hashem the ruler of all worlds or a Rebba? decide on your own & let Hashem know, he loves you & is waiting for you to call out to him from your heart for ANYTHING you need help
im against it but in truth did you ever hear of “supply & demand”?
WTP has got it right, you feed them until they start spitting it out & show they don’t want Anymore. if its older kids then give them a full dinner but you can’t force them to finish the full plate if their full.
goyim are already getting ready not just for halloween but also for cratzmich already now months before the holiday
the lottery winner just went from a true living life to a dead life with no schedule, just sitting all day in front of a TV in a fancy house in Florida with 3 cars parked in front sitting all day
as a healthy person with a schedule YOU BORUCH HASHEM HAVE A LIFE spending time with you r family & at work etc….August 26, 2017 10:21 pm at 10:21 pm in reply to: Best Minyan for a modern orthodox jew in Lakewood Jackson Brick area?? #1347686
congregation sons of Israel went from MO to yeshivish, today they are a full black hatter shul with barely a few no hatter people left, the MO of the lakewood community were either holocaust survivors that were niftar over the past 20 tears or their children all got married & went to live in a more MO community like edison or highland park or Teaneck NJ ETC…. i watched as the MO of lakewood got less & less until it was gone. Its only a matter of time before cong. sons of Israel becomes CHASIDISH there are already a few people with streimels that daven there.
Yes that is th e history of the 1st frum Lakewood shul & Lakewood dayschool That the Rosh Yeshiva of BMG Rabbi AM Kotler went to that today is not open anymore & instead a new frum cheder is there instead
thats why we they make reflector belts to waer at night in the dark which they even make ones that can be worn on shabbos without involving carrying even though its not actually sewn onto your coat
besides saving your life or anyones life/ hatzalas nefashos overrides shabbos
people who rant the magic segula ring or magic segulah cloth etc…. if you do this & this, is what we call magic prophecy which is pure avoda zara & is going against Hashem & trust in Hashem. still have even %1 doubt? then you are doubting Hashem & your trust in our loving father Hashem which is not a pure yid & is also chayav misa for believing in another G-D
1)start working on yourself on putting your trust %100 in Hashem & turn straight to Hashem in your times of need.
2)Make a daily learning seder of Sefer Chovos Halevovos (duties of the heart) which will change your life to the better by a lot & bring you closer to Hashem & start seeing Hashem with an open eye how everything is actually coming directly from Hashem & EVERYONE else doing it are just Hashems messengers.

get yourself a pair of those eclipse glasses to wearAugust 20, 2017 8:17 am at 8:17 am in reply to: How were you successful keeping your personal Kaballah last Rosh Hashanah? #1342815
depending on what each persons kaballah was some are harder then others, so until you let us know what level or kind of kaballah your holding on even if we do tell you how it will not help you stay %100 on track of your kabbala which can be a much harder one.
i.e. its a very easy kaballa to pick from midnight for a half hour to never talk loshon hara when there’s almost no one to call or speak to besides your spouse at the late hour versus same kabballa but at 12:00pm for a half hour or a different kaballah in the middle of the day
no cause actually his twittering is letting every US citizen know the truth of what is going on in the FAKE NEWS media & how much of what they are saying is really lies & what the real truth is (what he post) & sadly he needs to post so many times daily cause if he would leave even one event untwittered of his opinion of what really happened then the FAKE MEDIA would make it into a big story filled with lies to put a bad name & get more people to dislike trump & go against him AS IS THE FAKE MEDIA’S MAIN AGENDA TODAY since he won the election over 7 months ago, cause they were pain to support clinton & are now still being paid by democrats-who will never admit that they lost & move on in life-to go Anti-trump…. “Kesef ya’ana es Hakol YES MONEY TALKS” & the fake media is getting gelt to write against trump
a proud trump supporter
i want to meet the mods who are amazing non-human angels that work 24/7 & are always doing an amazing job making sure each post is kosher with a good hechshar & no secret information.
i would also love to meet our updated Shver (father-in-law) to make a lchaim face to face with him & to thank him on behalf of everyone in the coffeeroom for all the advice he gives us from his law firm experience. all with a smile at no charge. by now most lawyers would be the YWN coffeeroom a $5,000,000 lawyer bill
if hes a yid i would wrap my loving arm around his shoulder & tell him nicely that if he puts it back now quietly that i promise not to report him to the owner of store or police & it will stay between us for life & no chillul Hashem wil have occurred, otherwise he leaves me no choice for his benefit-so he never does it again-& my torah responsibilities- of preventing someone from sinning-but to report him to the owner & if necessary to the cops also.
when your children go to the store with you they don’t view & look at the signs the same way as adult parents do. they are going on a trip while us as parents are focusing on prices & going shopping etc…
i.e. they don’t realize & have wisdom to know that the reason why school supplies is in front of the store now is because school is almost starting, their childhood brain & mind level makes them think that this is today’s sale etc…
sorry but Iran is GOG not korea
we are ALL at fault for letting these innocent OTD people fall off & down the bridge of yiddishkeit into the ocean, We watch them going from bad to worse long before they are gone but do nothing to stop them from getting worse. From parents to teachers & rabbonim etc… to just neighbors on the street who see them everyday but do nothing. Ever heard of Kol Yisroel areiivim….? yes we are ALL responsible for each other & if someone sins because we didnt stop them with mussar then we get punished too for the sin he did. The same applies to children who went OTD & could have been saved by us loving yidden to save our brothers from going lost.
when lakewood was a full %100 ihr Hatorah 15 years ago & before then, schools were not a business & money was NEVER a issue to hold a child back from being accepted into the school. the business office & CEO of each school put their faith & trust in Hashem that they will make it through the year financially. School lunches are paid by the government together with lots of askanim who sponsored the learning of TASHBAR so they can be part of the mitzva too
i am not your daas torah but perhaps if your going to call anyone then call shomrim first before he goes public with police, perhaps shomrim can solve the issue before he gets in trouble by going public with police
when lakewood was a small community 20 years ago & before then, every school open then was open to every child & it was not hard to get your children into school even if you did not have money to cover tuition (a full year was about $1000 wish it would still be same price now)
in todays generation EVERY PERSON feels %100 that their way of life is the correct way to live (smoking or not, learning or college etc….) and if someone is even a drop different then their way then something is wrong with him/her & the person-different then your way of life-has issues & needs to change.
i agree with you & its a shame that true schools today have been destroyed & are now businesses like a college & your innocent kid & parents get tested when applying to see if they are rich enough or the type for how we feel we want our students & parents body of my school to be.
what a shame of returning to sodom
Lakewood Mesivta is very lkarge & has a few classes in each greade versus most have only 1 class, they are also betten %65 to %75 chassidish although the rosh Yeshiva & dean are not at all chassidish. They do not have an english program & learn a full day although they are still high school boys (not sure how they get a diploma after 12th grade but could be they don’t worry cause at least %90 of the boys learning there stay learning for a long future ahead even after they get married)
honest people who do what is right in the world & not just whatever they feel like doing even though they know its dishonest & corrupt & not right to do
they remove it when they know they will not be having any more children in the future, so they don’t have to keep taking down & then putting it back on for the new baby, they keep it on forever until the mother is finished having more children
better to not even know the reason(s) or get involved with curiosity. its a goyish thing that yidden should not do although its not a christian religious thing
1)trump is not a doctor or a pharmacist
2)only Hashem is the real Healer of all sicknesses & is the one to turn to for a refuah & help in any situation you need help in life
mazel tov to the entire family & the entire coffeeroom family also as we are another section of CTLAWYERs family & everyone should make a small lchaim for this wonderful Simcha & thank Hashem.
CTLAYWER Has been a member of the coffeeroom family for many years already & his opinions & advise are always great. Dont run away from us now for the next week until after sheva brachos we need you around & are thinking of making a live satellite famous sheva brachos for the chosson & kalla in the YWN Coffeeroom
“brooklyn is the best place for a frum family to live anywhere outside EY.”
is that so?
a frum community filled with hundreds of stores of physical pleasures & fancy stores of food & expensive clothing is the best? better for frumkeit then a simple torah community like williams burg, new square or if not chasidish how about cleveland which has a large growing frum community but remains simple away from all the fantasies & yetzer haras (lakewood used to be a torah town devoted to torah & only stores of necessaties but now sadly the brooklyn crown brought the yetzer hara of the fantasy life with them when they moved to lakewood R”L &lowered the kedusha of lakewood)
you cant find any they are all taken & way too expensive to afford the rental, better just save up to buy a house so at least your monthly pay will go to a mortgage versus just rent
say the special bracha for seeing a rainbow & then prepare for serious teshuva on behalf of klal yisroel with personally begging Hashem not to destroy the world
(do you remember what seeing a rainbow is a message from Hashem for?….)
as long as the condition looks like brand new then why not, the person getting the gift does not need to know where you got it from, to him let him think you just got it brand new from the store
every person needs to do their hishtadlus in life (which in these questions are all the choices besides Hashem) but the real answer for each question in “do you believe?” is HASHEM
i.e. from your physical yetzer hara department you are convinced that all the work & effort in everything you do in life is what brings you the success but we all know the truth that all hatzlacha comes directly from Hashem just through different messengers to get it to you & in different ways (ex. 1 person makes his money through a rich smart investment which involves little time cause he knows how to spend his time wisely & is not in need to be kept busy to keep him away from sin. 2nd person gets his parnassa from kollel support from in-laws because he is spending his time with Hashem learning & his in-laws are making EXTRA income from Hashem to be able to also support their new son-in-law. 3rd example is a simple person working in a store thats makes just enough to make ends meet & works full time very busy, cause he is needed to keep busy away from sin C”V & is not holding by being responsible to run his own business cause then it will cause him to feel great & forget that his parnassah comes all straight from Hashem)August 3, 2017 6:07 am at 6:07 am in reply to: Market hits record high under Trump Administration #1331250
don’t let your yetzer hara (evil inclination) fool you & corrupt your mind into thinking that this is all because of Trump. The melech malchei Hamelochim (king of kings) HASHEM runs the entire world 24/7 including wall street & decides every step of a persons life & step of a business how it should go up or down. Hashem decides when to send you to your boss to ask for a raise & how pleasing or not to ask it. (sure we all have equal free will & it might look like the boss choose yes or no on a raise but at the end of the day we all know that it was hashem who REALLY DECIDED YES OR NO
avraham in MD is correct
look more into his resources to get more information.
gun of course requires classes & a gun license.
make sure for hishtadlus that you have a camera AND Alarm system in your home covering every room & wondiw with video recording so that you have backup proof if needed C”V.
Make sure your property is properly lit up at night & also always looks occupied even when you go out for a wedding & not only when you go away long term to have a system setup to make your home look occupied. this includes timers for your lights, mail picked up daily-& not once a week- by a neighbor etc….
all over located from closeby but only 2 bedroom in a big apt. building or a 3 bedroom separate basement entrance of a house for as low as 650 currently. best place to find out about them is hundreds listed in a ad book called the masa u’matan of lakewood. ask a lakewood relative to go through it for/with you if you can’t get a hold of one
the basements actually are legal & are built in the beginning by the contractors & approved by the zoning board which makes them include extra parking for the basement rentals also & it helps the owners towards paying their monthly mortgage & is why they rent it out

are you sure that you always did your proper hishtadlus? when it came to finding a shidduch or a job before giving up? how many years were you working on it before stopping? 5 10 or 20 years or more? a person should NEVER give up his hope for success & help directly from Hashem forever until he is niftar. That would mean still looking for a job & a shidduch. Why did you stop? nothing is impossible. I know many people who have gotten married first time in their 50’s or 60’s etc… & many people who have found jobs that can work for them even in their 70’s so they can make ends meet & also keep a daily schedule etc…
start to work on yourself, by looking for a job that is in your league for your age now & speak to some shadchanim with your resume updated to today’s information etc….
for a nice 3 bedroom basement yes you can get it even lower like 675 or 700 ALL BASED ON THE LARGE SUPPLY & LOW DEMAND
the drivers & the beeping that goes on in lakewood now come straight from the people who moved there from brooklyn & now beep away in Lakewood thus they cause original lakewooders to also beep away & make it a big chillul Hashem.
if everyone would just drive with patience-as it is not as squashed & narrow street as brooklyn-& with safety then it would be such a pleasure to drive through lakewood & the goyim would not cause so much anti-semitsm, Which has just started alot recently in the last few years since lakewood started overcrowding with density. when lakewood had room, the neighbors were all friendly with the goyish neighbors & there was no hatred… but theres just a limit we can go before we have pushed it too far & cause hatred & anti-semitism. Lakewood frum community blew that 10 years ago when the ystarted building like crazy with causing major density & not caring about the communities “quality of life” thus affecting the goyim also & bringing it to hatred & anti-semitsm. GOYIM NEED TO REATHE & LIVE TOO
