    I agree with the T.I.D.E. guy!!! Thats the way to go, but if you are in shudduchim be wary of the fact that most girls today are looking for boys who at least for the first few years are committed to full time learning. You may be advised to put off college for a few years and even though its harder after marriage and kids, it is do able…

    i entertain a lot and i love using and getting and giving little decorative cocktail forks and spoons. I use them for chrain, pickles, olives etc. i can never have enough cuz i keep losing them. also the little dishes that would accompany such a thing are nice. fill them up with shabbos treats. nice gift. Kosher pallette books are also nice, but everyone seems to have them all. Eichlers has a new line of really nice resin washing cups that are very artsy and make nice gifts. My daughter just got one. they are 50 dollars though.

    I once heard, and i think this has merit, Watch how dogs and kids react to him. Sounds crazy but there is some truth to it. See how children react to him. Although Charedi dating is shortlived you can still spot red flags. and dating is an Indicator of how the person will act in real life. So while uneccessary nipicking isnt called for, look deeply into certain actions that bother you, because those little things now, in real life will be magnified.

    Absolutely pay close attention to how he talks to other people. IF in a restaurant, does he order the staff around. Is he never pleased with the service> does he send back his food. ABSOLUTELY listen to how he talks to his mother. ANd honestly before you get engaged. put yourself in a situation where you watch him interact with his mother, cuz that is how he will treat you down the line. NO MATTER WHAT THE CIRCUMSTANCES ARE llike she is annoying and You are not” (i am assuming you are a girl)

    I think as long as you are both enjoying each other’s company , you keep going, If its meant to be it will develop into something more serious. If its not it will usually fall apart on its own. If there is a haskafik or physical issue, than by all means break it off asap. FOr eg. he want to learn full time and you want to marry a doctor, or he wants to live in Israel forever and you can t leave Flatbush, If there are issues you just cannot be mevater on then dont drag it along. But that “:feeling: you are looking for “comes” with time. More dates are usually the answer.

    firstly, YOU have to stay calm. Babies know when you are frustrated. Second if you are giving a dairy formula switch to soy. or if you are nursing, you yourself go off dairy.

    in reply to: Regretting doing the shidduch #733711

    rc
    Participant

    I have to disagree with most on this board. If you have feelings of regret there is a reason for them. (I’m assuming they’re not based on shallow things, like this is the first boy, how does she know whats out there? type of thing…or we wanted real money and this guy is from a family of mechanchim) . the RBS”O doesn’t make us feel this way for nothing. Speak it out to a Rav who knows you and can sense what your issues are, if they are valid it may be important to act on your feelings. You know your daughter well, probably better than she knows herself, and if you feel ill at ease, look deep into those reasons and seriously ask yourself if they are important. If what bothers you is a pgam in his middos, I would verify it with his Rebbe, and act upon it, very rarely can people change, and the little things you (really meaning your daughter) notice now become magnified as life unfolds. MOST IMPORTANTly, AND I KNOW THIS WORKS>>> DAVEN FOR CLARITY!! in a way you have never davened before. i teach preschool for many years and can say with almost certainty, that when a conflict arises between a parent and child and the parent does not know how to handle it, its usually because of a middah that the child possesses that is foreign to that parent (meaning it came from “the other side” . I tell Kallahs the reason its important to look at the boy’s family, and to look at the silblings, is to see if they possess middos that you can respect and identify with, because even if the chosson does not have those shortcomings, it will most likely come out in the children. And it causes alot of pain and heartache. I don;t know what your issues are, I just know usually if you feel something is wrong it probably is… Get help soon so as not to make this worse down the road. and at the very least, keep dialogue open with your daughter, listen to her as she talks about her chosson. maybe she knows him in a way you dont. or maybe she just really needs a reality check. My shitta is that you are the parent, and you don;t stop parenting until C”V one of you leaves this earth! Hatzlacha Raba..

    Miami, same story. However we dont even have the cheap chessed hall option. We are all going to NY and while for some it works better (cuz their familes are there) for the guests its getting ridiculously expensive to go to NY for everyones simcha. Even if we had a “chessed” hall, the catering alone couldnt compete with NY> We just dont have the volume…

    thnaks mine is on a pedestal and spinning great although the highest spin is really like a jet engine. but its quiet and doesnt jump around, I just mean its really powerful. I love my new machine. Cant say enough great things about it. but i can see how it might not be practical in a house full of little ones because the door does need to stay opened to dry out.

    I am so glad i can help you solve this issue. I just got my Electrolux IQ touch from Sears after much research and deliberation. I am so obesesed with this machine, i have washed everything in my house. MY biggest problem now is that it holds so much laundry in one load (I’m talking motzai the nine days in the bungalow colony big!) that I only need to do one load of laundry a week. My poor machine is sad and lonely all the other days!!! (we are four at home now, and most of my stuff is hand wash) any way. heres the deal with the front loaders. ELectrolux was the only company that owners did not complain about the mold smell. I will tell you this, when the wash is done, the door and gasket are WET (think laudromat) YOU MUST KEEP THE DOOR OPEN OR AJAR between washes. So if you have a toddler roaming about and this is a concern for you, dont get a front loader. Also the dispenser can get gunky and slimy (again think laudromat) and that too is wet after use so leave it open too. those are the only annoyances i can see. THis thing holds tons more than your old maytag with an agitator. It is so gentle on the clothes. but…The spin is litrerally like a jet engine, so always choose low spin unless its towels or blankets. The machine is so quiet and easy to use and a pleasure to have around. I love watching it work. You can pause the cycle AT ANY TIME to add things. the way the water fills you are always able to open the door. Remember with any front loader you have to buy special HE soap which is expensive but you only use a small amt. I am obsessed with Persil (sorry its German) but I used to use it in Israel and its great for front loaders. for more on that check out my blog at http://www.thebabyessentials.com where I review Persil MegaPerls. I looooovvvvveeee that soap. ALl in all I could not be happier with my purchase. Water usage was also important to me cuz i have septic tank. Now i am using 15-20 gallons instead of 60 Yes all top loaders use up to 60gallons per load even the new ones!! As long as you are willing to keep the door open and buy the special soap you will be thrilled with it. I even put my son’s cotton tzitzis in (dont tell him!) they came out perfect. I put the strings in a wash bag .. the machine is so gentle they werent knotted at all. Oh be sure and spring for the pedestal. Yes it is a waste of money, but its great having the laundry at waist level. otherwise its hard to reach the clothes inside. and yes you need the factory pedestal you cannot just build something yoruserlf cuz this thing spins like a jet plane, it needs to be properly anchored. I love my machine!!

    dont bring shampoo.. its a waste. you need the israeli/european ones to work with the hard water. and according to my girls they only wear the same black pleated skirt, and black sweater every single shabbos. THey have also never worn their fancy shabbos robes. or their high heeled fancy shabbos shoes. you do alot of walking there so those steve maddens with the thin sole are not gonna last you!!! and they also make you go sliding down slippery streets like in shaarei chesed. You may want to bring spiral notebooks in your hand luggage. YOu cant really get them there. Any type of “dorm appliances” you can get in Israel. and sforim you can order online at shenkys and he will deliver it to you… GOod luck take half as much as you think you need.

I also cannot understand how if you take government money you can expect not to have the govt control the standards of the school. seems like such a simple solution. Dont they have “private” chareidi schools in Israel>? Raise money. start a school, problem solved… simple am I missing something? Instead of all those chareidim standing out chalshing in the heat today, couldnt they all just donate one dollar to the private school and they would have already had 100,000.00!!
