    it’s very easy to just ban something . an adventurous teenager is “hanging around” so to speak because they have nothing better to do. If the yeshivas were really interested then maybe some rabbeim should arrange something for the guys to do 2/4 motzash a month.

    before Rav Meir Kahane ZT”L was in Brooklyn College, communists used to hold cultural events on campus then one day his group and he wrecked the show and after that they were afraid to perform in BC. I think there would be no better way to honor his name than to have a group show some guts and stop it even if force is necessary. There are many non-jews who like israel also

    Really Layzer? Would you like to be drafted into the army against your will? I don’t think most people would. Fact is the U.S. army has a huge army on a volunteer basis. The Israeli government forces everyone to go in order to fit into the political machine.

    popa I’m getting the idea that you didn’t have a social life in high school. Because if you would you would know how someone’s social life can affect someone. Many times it’s due to the crowd they hang out with. Does your home accept rebellious or potential rebellious kids or does the school?

    Most people get their rebellious ideas in yeshiva/camp. It’s more likely because of the yeshiva than a parent.

    bygirl doesn’t understand anything about guys. Also, If a girl finds a rich guy or a kolel husband from lakewood of her dreams then she’ll most likely convince him to quit. If a guy is physically attracted to a girl he’ll do many things to marry her

    Yekke2, yekkes are known to be intelligent people. I think you would know that obesity results in diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, etc. Maybe bloomberg is right. Maybe some Jews need that kind of government intervention

    Smoking is cool. Most bochurim stop at a certain point. If that’s the only bad thing he does then it’s fine. Yea it’s unhealthy, but there are more obese Jews than smokers. It’s a social thing. If your friends in yeshiva, camp, etc smoke then chances are you will. If not then you probably won’t because smoking is a social activity and most people don’t start smoking by themselves. I don’t believe one should smoke, but its possible to control it. Most people don’t enjoy every cigarette they smoke. Once in a while is enjoyable. The taste of rich tobacco on a brown topped cigarette is a good taste. Weed is slowly creeping into our yeshivas and I don’t think many rabbis know how to deal with the situation or realize it before it becomes more prevalent. That is a problem as well. Many people who grow up in sheltered homes where kids aren’t exposed them to many possible outlets can go on to smoking.

    @ voldemort, I never stereotyped, I was merely stating a fact. He learned under r’ soloveitchik at YU. This makes him a YU rebbi, there is nothing wrong with that. Do you know 90% of what goes on in YU?

    You aren’t going to come across a mekubal on the YWN coffee room. Most dreams have to do with things that happen in your life while you awake? YOu dream about deceased relatives because you probably miss them and think about them every so often. Do your siblings rely on you for support?

    Definitely the opposite of a Meah shearim type of yeshiva. R Ilson is a YU rebbi
