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.
one doesn’t have to do it with his mouth
not all mohelim do metzitzah
squeak think before you type. I hope you aren’t serious
not even a contest swiss > elal. if you’re flying with friends you can get like a 10 hour stop over and do something cool
it’s not just to force anyone work for the government.
mods please close these sem threads. everyday it’s another one. you can’t take these seminary reviews from people you don’t know seriously
In brooklyn, no chance that works. Out of towners or maybe someone from manhattan might be more open to that idea
if jasonx isn’t jewish and wants to kknow. we don’t really care as long as he isn’t spreading libels and slander against jews
there are enough jews out there the question is do chasidim want to marry ltivaks do ashkenazim want to marry sephardim
Jews have always been neurotic. The Woody Allen stereotype isn’t baseless
In new york the regents matters. Generally most graduates from ny have a regents diploma.
So if somebody finds his zivug he won’t get a kollel check? Makes sense.
“proper grammar” isn’t correct usage of the English language. Good try though
Beningum man you need to read about the JDL and what their protests changed.
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
mdd just because countries have a draft doesn’t make it just. it’s not just to force people to serve in the army. students were able do avoid the draft in us wars but good try.
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.
they don’t have pork or anything it’s probably just as kosher as dd bagels would be
i hate israeli politics it makes no sense
we welcome you to the dark side
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.
We don’t wear techeiles because we don’t know the exact animal. Some say it’s from a fish.
Why would google take it off? Pornography is a multi-million dollar industry.
True. If one would grow his own tobacco the dangers are much less.
YU is adjusting their tuition based on family income
You don’t understand guy chills, your knowledge is empirical. As your title suggests you are a naive person.
money, looks, the kollel guy of her dreams, etc.
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
It isn’t rude in everyone’s eyes. I personally don’t wear a hat during meals, in fact not even for kiddush. But some people are used to it.
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.
3/4 * 5 = 3.75/3= 1.25. 76th percentile. Was that question multiple choice?
Or the fact that not all Jews are closed mindedJune 10, 2012 10:12 pm at 10:12 pm in reply to: Can someone with unfiltered internet be a ???? ?????? #1134132
Who says YWN is permitted?
I think it is good. Recently much of the news regarding Jews has been negativity.
who BUYS music nowadays
musser zogger there could be a lot worse things.
don’t keep OU but you must agree with the internet asifa?
BTguy, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out how to put a hat on.
Truth be told somebody stole my umbrella in shul.
So the government should legalize marijanna, coke, and heroine.
If you are so into achdus as the asifa, then you would go to the parade.
My pointing him out to be a YU rebbi is to contrast him from your traditional Lakewood/Brisk type of Rosh yeshiva.
@ 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
they lived in the same era look on wikipedia
