    3/4 * 5 = 3.75/3= 1.25. 76th percentile. Was that question multiple choice?

    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

    Unfortuately, nothing that is supposed to be kosher or Jewish is free. Yeshiva tuition, shul dues, food proprietors pay a fortunate to have their place kosher. And it’s all marketed through guilting the masses. Any challengers? K-9 is really not practical, it slows down computers. Would you download a virus?

    If people can name their chassidic sects after goyish towns in Poland, then there should be no problem with English. Mind you, it’s pretty weird to name a Chasidic sect St. Mary, that’s just me.

    What makes turbans even more tznius. Turbans make women stand out more. It’s not the norm for women in western countries to wear turbans. (whatever those hassidic/haredi women wear)

    R klonimus kalman did you ever spend a year in Israel? More people learn better in Israel than in America. It also depends what age. Teens age (ages 18-20) see better changes overall thatn ppl (21-23)who came to Israel just to freeze for a year. There’s nothing wrong with town as long as you’re not doing anything that’s assur

    Gabie, read my question carefully and answer it again intelligently. MDG the mishna brurah does say one must wear a ‘hat’ it doesn’t specifically say what kind of hat. To my knowledge not everyone in Europe wore a yarmulke all the time, except davening. mishna brurah se’ef katan 12.

    I don’t know how difficult it is to understand (akuperma) that more American Jews speak English as a first language. We’re in America speak English like a normal person, and the people who live in Wiliamsburgh can’t speak normal English or Yiddish, they just jumble a mixture of the two languages into one sentence. YIddish is a dead language, wanna have speech in yiddish, keep it in BP, Williamsburg, New Square, Monroe, or a radical area in Israel. Don’t have yiddish speeches at a public venue in America, it’s psychotic IMHO.

    Read this:

    Remember a few weeks ago how the Australian government was getting ready to spend many millions of dollars on internet porn filters? We ridiculed the second part of the plan, which was to force ISPs to filter the internet, but the first part of the plan was to hand out free client-side filters that could be installed on computers by parents. The cost to the government was a mere $84 million Australian (about $70 million US). It should come as no surprise, though, that a teenager claims it took him all of about half an hour to crack the filter. Even better, he says he did so in a way that the icon still shows on the computer, so parents will think the software is still working. Of course, there are always ways to get around filters and it’s not hard for many kids to figure them out. Still, rather than recognizing that the government has wasted many millions of dollars on a futile program, one of the main political backers of the program said it only highlights why the country needs to spend even more on filters, including those ISP filters that won’t work either.

    gather all of the high schools and yeshiva gedolahs. Smoking should stop already . High schools tolerate under age smoking. dina d’malchusa dina. Smoking causes bitul torah, fact. I’m sure people leave davening to smoke. It ay be a chill hashem.

    I can relate to your brother. I was rejected from a few H.S. as well. rejection happens at life. some ppl experience it at school, some who are seeking jobs, and others experience it in their dating life. But I realized whatever yeshiva I went to was perfect for their respective times. I was in one h.s and 4 B.m. programs. some places are not meant to be. If your brother is self disciplined and falls into the right crowd yeshiva of far rockaway might be a good idea. Most ppl get accepted

    Drinking coke on a daily basis is extremely bad for you. Driving in boro park or anywhere in nyc is extremely dangerous. I think the issue is starting smoking. That is probably because there’s a physical/psychological addiction that isn’t easy to overcome.
