    So instead of plastic straws let’s destroy all the trees to make paper straws which last maybe one drink before falling apart and then we all have less oxygen and food. Do you liberals think these ideas through before blindly following? Liberals don’t do anything right.

    Shimon, the liberals often create new environmental issues when they try to restrict the use of one material by replacing it with others. They can’t do anything right. Ok don’t use fuel so use more batteries instead. It’s narish.

    The chasidim who are wealthy and there are a lot give back more to their communities far better than modern do. The ones who are poor are able to make weddings b’kavod because the chasidim give back . MO communities often they’re the majority of the community and they are too soft to take over the local governing boards and they don’t all have bussing. The chasidim take over the towns and use power for their benefit. The chasidim can accomplish for their towns in 6 months far better than the MO do in ten years. E.g. the one shared mikveh that’s a mile away.

    There’s no passing grade on the SAT. You don’t really need one altogether. The modern orthodoxy approach to modernity is let’s try to incorporate the left wing view to Yiddishkeit not what does Yiddishkeit think about the left wing view.

    AAQ MO people need filters. Everyone does. They know what’s on there they just don’t want to talk about it and tell their community to get a filter because it’ll get backlash.

    Yserbius there are more chesed and advocacy groups within yeshivish circles than in modern. Did you ever hear about an Asifa? The agudah convention? Modern communities don’t have these things.

    In Lita it wasn’t uncommon for a woman to know gemaras due to the learning they were accustomed to hearing from their fathers at home.
    When I was single I didn’t really understand the issue of with it; once I got married I understood pretty quickly why women should not to learn gemara, Hameivin Yavin.

    On average chasidish boys will come off as too controlling to litvish girls. The inverse makes more sense.

    And CTL making simchas wasn’t the example I was getting at. Though I do think that if a wealthy person makes a party where the scene is not fitting for Jews than such person should be admonished. e.g. wild dj parties playing goyish music or lack of tznius. A bar mitzvah and wedding shouldn’t be a club scene.

    Overall it was worse in Europe than in Muslim countries. Zionism incitied rage in Arab countries towards Jews. It’s a fact that Zionists won’t admit but it’s the truth.

    CTLawyer right but the difference is the rabbis won’t admonish a wealthy person when making an over the top event but will preach to others not to.

    The Arabs didn’t want a partition. They want the whole thing. The so-called Palestinians won’t recognize Israel. There was an idea was that their land be Jordan and the Jews get Israel but the BH British changed their minds.

    A dating picture of a woman is usually featuring her with her best looks e.g. dressed up and full makeup at a Simcha or other rehearsed photo. It’s safe to say that women don’t always look the way they are featured in Shidduch profiles. It can be a bit disappointing if the way she appeared looked different than the picture but it shouldn’t be a dealbreaker. A mature adult would know that the picture is for show and that she’ll probably not always have her hair done and have makeup on and if the girl looks ok still that he should give her a chance to know her before saying no on account of a picture.

    The fewer divorces among the chasidim may be due to women feeling powerless.

    CY why can’t a hashgacha lead the way and tell people who are closed minded not to judge. If an employer doesn’t treat employees right will the establishment get a hechsher? The lines get blurred. There are often different demographics within a community.

    Shmili it doesn’t mean you can’t take advice from more than one Rabbi. I think that’s the flaw with the chasidish world. Whenever one person says that’s what’s done or your in cherem.

    Recognizing Jerusalem as the capital is supporting Israel which means Jews. Democrats not doing the same was because they support Palestinians who hate Jews. Democrats hide their antisemitism by hiding. Trump supported Jews with action. Obama a follower of reverend wright and Farrakhan didn’t pardon rubashkin when he could have because he doesn’t like Jews.

    How many Democrats believe anti-zionism isn’t antisemitism? A great many Democrats are anti Israel but think they are a separate issue from hating Jews? Many progressives are allies with Islamists. Go to a university with a kippah and you’ll get harrased by such liberals.

    The thing is the Reagan revolution was a populist movement vs the Bush/Rockefeller elite types. We need both but we need policies and but to respond to everything with “but it’s socialism” when we’re already a half socialist country. Democrats are smart. The promise big and give you a little to make it look like they’re helping. Republicans just try to obstruct.

    Jackk because trans people are sick and the Democrats want them to dominate every space. Every Democrat supports same sex marriage that’s the difference. The federal government isn’t supposed to be involved in deciding marriages. It should be up to the states. This is Democrat big government fascism.

    I must admit that the Sefer mentioned in the op is not the one I was thinking about. Indeed there is a Sefer Pshuto Shel Mikra by R Cooperman Ztl which has approval by R Weiss there is no ban for this Sefer. A number of years ago, the Leshem publishing company put out a Sefer, pirush on Chumash called Pshuto Shel Mikra which is under this ban. As it stands this Sefer of controversy is indeed alleged to not have legit haskamah.
