Do you not know?
CTLawyer that makes it even worse. You’re part of a force that allows abortion. “Settled law” doesn’t change the issue. You’re an example why Jews shouldn’t be lawyers.March 18, 2019 12:51 pm at 12:51 pm in reply to: GAN DY: Should beis medresh bocherim have dorm counselors? #1697705
Nowadays, it is needed for bochurim aged 19-20. A few bad apples can turn a yeshiva into a drug rehab.
How do you get to marry rich, if you aren’t?
The democrat party is worse for us in 2019. We shouldn’t be endorsing people like Cuomo or We Blasio.
Not all Jews put their focus on a rebbe.June 2, 2017 10:19 am at 10:19 am in reply to: Anti Zionist demonstration planned in Barclays Center #1288896
It’s 2017. Get over it. Israel is a state. Move on. If you love the PA so much, move to the west bank.
Cancel your con ed account and ride a horse
No, then the antisemites will win. The French Jews in the financial sector are not leaving France, no matter who wins.
There are also jobs
@joseph You are lost. Tznius and kosher are two opposite things. How would you legislate tznius?
“Halachas are, effectively, legislated. Thus, keeping kosher and keeping tznius is legislated.”
Kashruss is effectively legislated by establishments having certification. How should tznius be legislated? You want a vaad tznius who goes around intimidating people?
There’s nothing you can do.
If they are hostile it means they are aware
All jews are aware. Some care and some don’t. This is the reality.
This isn’t even a controversy. Someone in your family broke off from your tradition. It’s not reverting; it’s restoring your tradition. Go for it. More people should follow in your footsteps. Nusach Sefard shouldn’t be a monopoly.
It’s not a mainstream flatbush/lakewood if you get my drift kind of place. It’s a very diverse place. There are guys that have come from flatbush, five towns/far rockaway, OOT , South Africa, Canada, UK, and Australia.
The Yeshiva is right next to town; for some, it’s a challenge that’s difficult to overcome.
The Rosh Yeshiva is a central focus. So, it’s a place where one can gain a connection with said person. Rabbeim and Kollel people encourage guys to stay there a long time, and the hashkafos are a bit different from mir, and the like. Definitely hadracha.
If your friend witnessed the style of learning, then he has an idea of what it’s like.
Calling a Jew “Charedi” has the same connotation as using the N word to describe a black person. Those who can’t understand this, need to do soul-searching.
Charedi is a perjorative used by modox, reform, zionists, etc because of various insecurities that they have. Don’t go there.
False. Any Rabbi who uses the charedi label is being politial and is questionable.
Yes. No debate.
It’s not Avodah Zara. There is a source for it. It’s not yeshivish, but it has a basis.
President doesn’t mean he owns you. He doesn’t preside over you, but he presides over the affairs of your country. He is your representative, at the executive level. Did you ever go to school?
Jews don’t really shave because we don’t use razors.
Turning the USA Republic into the USSA
If Trump ran on a D ticket, all you liberals jews would vote for him.
Obama has many similarities to Bush. FYI.
A gartel does not have to be worn. Davening mincha before shkia or shachrus before zman tfilah are more important imho
Hiring Biden, would take away the opposition.
Probably harder to regulate the use of brass knuckles
Franklin Pierce didn’t even know how to ride a horse
I think GWB was a great guy, but he didn’t execute the right policies. For that, I think he did a worse job than Bill Clinton and Obama. I’ll always vote Republican, but the Iraq war was a total disaster.
It’s not all about guns, but the 2nd amendment says, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Hence, well regulated means gun control.
And of course, we live in an Era when people in general don’t have to be responsible for their actions; so, divorce is a way out for some. There are many reasons.
Because the Jewish community has normalized it. Also, marriage counselors wouldnt have jobs if everyone was happily married… let’s be honest.
According to the literal definition, what you are describing is get refusal. What you choose to do is your business, given the halachic ruling. That’s the most neutral and objective answer.
I’d take Bannon in the white house, over Podesta and Huma Abedin. And frankly, HRC.August 7, 2016 9:13 pm at 9:13 pm in reply to: Why the ashkenazi schools don't accept sefardi children #1164133
Solid three weeks conversation.July 17, 2016 8:19 pm at 8:19 pm in reply to: Does anyone know of any good modern or yeshivish high schools in Jersey #1159488
anybody have the chords/sheet music to ninth man by moshe yess/abie?
I felt the parade was a bit dead. In my experience it has been more lively in past years
In my opinion It starts with education. These seminaries brainwash girls into marrying the top lakewood boy even though there are only few of the top lakewood boys. Then yeshivas don’t convince guys to work. Most of these guys only want to learn if they get supported. You have a bunch of ignorant boys and girls who don’t know what they’re doing. There has to be radical changes in most of the yeshivas. There isn’t a shidduch crisis, people have their heads in the clouds.
Don’t waste your money. Get an education from a human being.May 28, 2013 4:46 am at 4:46 am in reply to: Message From Harav Yaakov Bender About Serious Drinking Problem In Frum Communit #1084982
people have always drank on shabbos. The problem is people act stupid about the drinking. Drinking on shabbosis supposed to be a classy thing, not parading around with full glasses of whiskey.
yea I don’t think we should take advice from the most radical faction on the planet.
fleury: giving irrational confidence to teams since the ’12 flyers. it was a shortened season. in an 81 game season the devils would have been in the playoffs instead or at least the jets.
whoever thinks amnon’s is still good is behind
if you like toppings benny’s has the kosher best pizza in the world. it’s not a debate. it IS better than pizza time.
