The opposition to the idea of evil people ruling the world is not exclusive to the Notzrim. The push for religious Jews to become secular is ages old. The push for ethnic equality is [also] ages old. The anti-chip and anti-vaccine ideaologies have to do with how some peopel interpret sceicne and less to do with the Notztrim.
He made the Republican Party better. It use to cater more towards Neocon, Libertarian, and Protestant Christian but now appeals to people who do not fall into any of those 3 categories. As a person who volunteered in the Trump promotion office, I saw people from different cultural backgrounds who felt incentivized to vote because of Donald Trump.
To the original @techeles.
Moving to Canada isn’t a good idea for an American Jew unless he has a real reason too. There’s plenty of more Limud in Lakewood than Toronto. Many Torontons end up moving to Lakewood.
I do admit that American Jews don’t understand what it’s like to be a 2nd World country like Israel or let alone a conflict region since they are comfortable in a 1st World country. The same is true for Canadian Jews. Many Americans learn in Israel but then come back. I think someone should just find a place and stick to it.
@charliehall, in the time of Yithzak Rabin, there weren’t many advocates for an Arab State in Israel as there are today under the looney social justice warriors. So in today’s world, the card-carrying Right-Winger Netanyahu has had to at least claim to endorse some type of Arab state. It will be very strange to teach Israeli history…
Biden isn’t the worst, but given his current mental state, the people running the show might make it a bit harder. We really have no way of knowing.
1. We do more testing than China.
2. China probably lies about their number.
2. We have more people than most countries in Europe. In fact, California has more people than Canada.
4. Controlling 4 million people in a country (like Norway) might be easier than controlling a country that has as many people as the USA.
5. Trump was called a “Racist” for blocking flights from China.
Why not be in America or Israel as opposed to both?
I plan to live in Israel, so I will be learning there before marriage. For someone who intends to live in America, then keep learning here.
I think the crisis people have isn’t a crisis in shidduchim but a crisis in society as a whole. Whether it’s how people look at finance or how people look at relationships as a whole. Western society is decaying.
Want to know more idealistic solutions:
1. Not encourage women to pursue an education and instead, marry a man who has skills
2. Not frown upon someone who learns and works (which many of our sages did)
P.S. Men tend to marry women their age or younger but rarely older.
Joe is too dumb to remember his crimes.
I an moving to Israel regardless of who wins.
The above 28 year old is exactly what I was saying about kollel culture and wanting girls with rich parents. This is an upside down understanding of limud hatorah. Our sages learned without this “system”.
Also, I come from an environment were both men and women had to figure out their lives at a younger age. FFB communities with such a problem is a result of a failed culture. However, I don’t know if every community in the frum world is like this.
As a late 20’s single who is still in the פרשה of שידוכים, I can say the following:
1. I admit to have been more picky that needed.
2. I have been told that because of my B”T background, some parents were skeptical of me dating their daughters.
3. I was told that I’d find better learning and dating opportunities in Israel.
4. Paying for a dating site means nothing since you have no way of knowing if you’ll actually get anywhere. Having a resume/profile is good enough.
5. Some שדכנים don’t understand basic, human compatibility.
*Remember that it’s all from Hashem.
1. Trump was the best for Israel.
2. Joe isn’t really mentally there, so his policies could be dictated by a secular, Left-Wing, San Fransicko nutcase who inter-married a non-observant Jew. That Yid doesn’t have a strong Jewish identity. The so-called “Jews” that will be in the Biden/Harris administration are likely to be relatively worse than their Trump/Pence counter-parts.
3. I would be less skeptical of the Biden/Harris administration if it did NOT overturn any of Trump’s policies that made it easier for Israel. For example, if they didn’t move the embassy to Tel Aviv or denounce the Golan, then I wouldn’t be as critical. However, Israel is also affected by other countries, and if they turn a blind-eye on Shia-Islamist Iran, that could be a problem for Israel as well. It would also be an issue for the Gulf Arab states too. It’s all a big chess game.November 8, 2020 9:54 am at 9:54 am in reply to: State Legislatures Should Give Trump Reelection Win #1917747
Trump issued orders that fixed America more than Clinton, both Bushes, and Obama combined.November 8, 2020 9:53 am at 9:53 am in reply to: Could someone explain it to a non American please…? #1917746
The media is corrupt, the Democrats are corrupt, and the political establishment is VERY corrupt.
Bill didn’t steal the election.
Joe did via rigging.
1. Historically, men married women younger than them.
2. FFBs aren’t as open to marrying BTs as they could be.
3. Fathers and Father-in-laws shouldn’t be in the מצב of not marrying off their kids because of kollel sponsorship issues.
4. Stricter categories of working vs learning are an issue.
5. Encouraging men and women to look a certain way.
6. Lack of בטחון.
What about authoritarian leaders that actually fixed things? South Korea was once Authoritarian-leaning, and the ancient Kingdom of Israel most certainly was not a democracy. Then again, neither was Pre-Communist Russia.November 4, 2020 12:37 pm at 12:37 pm in reply to: Finding out who won the presidential election 2020 #1916791
And voting machines weren’t working in Brooklyn.
And I’m sure something was up in AZ (which is predominately Republican).
Esav literally killed a man. Trump has yet to kill someone. This is a pathetic attempt at establishing a comparison between Esav and Donald Trump.
@Besalel , made a better analogy – comparing Trump to Akhashverosh.
Note: If your wife wants to wear the non-wig headcovering, let he do so.
If a the world’s most politically powerful man eats like a dog but is good to the Hebrew nation, then how is he bad? If he keeps the 7 Noahide Laws but interrupts people to call them a “liar”, is he a bad person?
The Unstumppable Trump is the greatest president in American history who has done more to fix the economy and military.
Traitor Joe would make it easier for Communist China which puts Uighurs in concentration camps and is a threat to Japan as well as India.
The city that Harris represents had an increase in crime when she became more politically powerful.
The Left didn’t have multi-city protests when people, who so happened to be Black, gunned down Jews in NJ.
To the first post, Harris isn’t as vocal on supporting the Arabs as much as she’s vocal on other issues, but given the people that this woman is affiliated with, she will be putting Anti-Israel politicians into power.
To Reb Eliezer, given both countries are now allies, it isn’t. That would be like saying that Russia is Anti-Russian for selling guns to a Russian ally.
To UJM, That means that Biden is getting help from foreign help for a campaign. Where’s the Biden-Abbas Collusion story, here?
Get racists like Biden out of the US Government!
Make America Great Again!
PRAY THAT DONALD BEN FRED WINS THE ELECTION!
MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!
I don’t live in NYC, but logically, getting money for schools is more important than having rights to play in playgrounds. If you’re already paying taxes to NYC, bout might as well get some benefit from your own taxes. Logically, just sitting this out is logical.
Now, besides that, there is a wicked double standard I do not like when people have the right to go on planes (which is a small space) but not shuls (which can be much larger). The Corona pandemic is being used by the secular elites as an attack on our traditions.
MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
Nefesh Ha-Chaim isn’t an ancient book while the gemara is literally ancient teachings. The gemara is not clamming to literally support Anarcho-Communist extremism. In fact, democracy is not necessarily a Jewish value.
The A1 visa seems good. The student visa would be good (as I am still single). Perhaps, when the lockdown gets less locked, I could try to at least get a student visa or travel permit. Though, the A1 seems like it’s worth it for the long-run.
I would consider going to an Israeli Embassy in America since I did meet someone who obtained an Israeli passport via it.
The cases for allowing abortion don’t come up that often. Most abortions in the world are forced, and goyim can not take a life with leniencies that apply to saving Jewish women. But again, I repeat that you can’t have a government built on leniencies that are based on rare situations. Even former abortion “doctors” do not claim that there were actually any life-saving operations done from their sins.
Also, on a sociopolitical note, if you brainwash goyim to murder their own children, they’ll murder our’s. That already happened in many countries, and the idea that you can’t see the long-term damage done by heavily promoting such a leniency. Sometimes, a nation has to be stringent.
P.S. The political party that overtly promotes abortion also promotes sexual immorality.
There will be new world order when the mashiach becomes king of Israel. The evil elites are trying to create their own kingdom but will ultimately fail.
We already live in a morally torn society where abortion and sexual immorality are normal. Americans look down upon families with many kids, the food is unhealthy, and you can’t watch most TV channels or hear appropriate lyrics on popular music radio. These evil animals already influence this place.
I am late on this, but Americans and Canadians have a higher standard of living. Therefore, the neighborhoods cost more.
1. You don’t have to feel like you should marry her after one date.
2. You need someone who is emotionally compatible with you.
3. Some shadkhanim are unreliable.
The last comment is true. Morroco and Tunisia aren’t as heavily involved in the Islamist ideologies that are affecting countries like Yemen. Pakistan is somewhat more influenced by the English-speaking world (given its history). They’ve had some respectable leaders that wanted to make Pakistan more decent.
However, the original post would practically make sense for Oman. The Sunni-led gulf states have an incentive to seek help to deal with the Shia-led Iran.
Saudi Arabia has also undergone some serious changes in the past decade, so their kingdom’s historic anti-Jewish sentiment might decline with the rise of some newer leaders.
I’ve been doing more introspection due to spending more time alone. I was able to note what mitsvos and middos I need to work on.
The actions of Bill and Hillary are not the same; Bill was not in the Obama administration.
Kennedy was the last Democrat to do anything special for us since the Post-1948 world. However, he was killed while in power. The other democrats’ since him were not that great even though Bill Clinton pardoned many people. However, Obama had his entire administrative era to pardon Rubashkin. Obama was generally weak with Observant Jewish people.
With Trump, Orthodoxy is on the spotlight (which would be good for our future even if it means very little now), and America has a better relationship with Israel (which matters even if you’re not a Tsionist since most Jews live in either America or Israel).
Harris is not ideal because she’s generally progressive. Biden is mentally unfit for office, and Trump is at least doing a better job than tat Bush, Clinton, Bush 2, and Obama. If I’m voting this year, I’m voting for Trump.
They don’t support him [either] because he’s an idiot who’s not qualified to run or doesn’t have any good policies.
NYC has been a broken and corrupt place for ages. The culture of Non-Khasidic Yidden living in Brooklyn is limited to only a small number of places. It’s over. Queens is pathetic too! And Manhattan is more modern for my type. If you’re a Frum Yid living in NYC and plan to stay in America, you have a better option in the Greater Lakewood Area (including Jackson and Tom’s River). You also Frum communities in or near other cities like Philadelphia.
I don’t think Hashem wants me to move to NYC.
I haven’t left Ocean County since I came back to it after the recent Pesach week. I don’t intend to move there, and don’t see why anyone would. Maybe there’ll be some Lubavitch enclave still at Crowned Heights, but even that crowd will move out.
Trump is not as much of a pathetic looser as modern-day Democrats.
For goyim, hostility to Israel invites open hostility to Jews. The Left opened the doorway to it. The Left openly supports the secularism of America and wishes to make it bigger.
To Sam Klein. I am criticizing them in a constructive way. The Jewish community needs to seriously consider teaching musical theory. I learned it, and it has help me not steal Goyish niggunim for a Jewish-lyric song. FFB people need to learn music if they are taka going to play!
FFB people aren’t privileged with musical theory classes that teach people how to write nigunim.
MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
Are back to normal
Restaurants are not.
Obama is evil and masks it with a nice personality.
China can get away with things that Israel never could.
Trump is already critical of China as a whole.
And Chinese Muslims helped China take over the Uighur region.
