I’ve tried MBD, Avrohom Fried, Shwekey, Baruch Levine, Meydad Tasa…I don’t enjoy any of them.
Who ever said watching movies, having girlfriends etc is a davar assur?
AMEN!!! Thank you!
The chassidish/Ashkenazic accent drives me CRAZY!
I started listening to Israeli Sefardic non Jewish music – but that’s the same as the English non Jewish music, except in Hebrew
I started listening to Jewish songs with the non Jewish tunes but it’s not the same. The other words pop into my head while listening to the Jewish version.
HaLeiVi – I don’t enjoy classical music. I need loud beaty music. The tunes of other songs drive me crazy.
person3- I tried that. I’m able to keep my word for 2/3 weeks and then I can’t hold back anymore.
FantabulousEyebrows- I know it affects the neshama etc. I listen to Jewish music too, but I can’t leave the other music behind.
cookies123- I make promises for myself to try very hard not to listen to such music but it doesn’t hold up that long.
yitayningwut- I’m a college student. Most of the time I’m on the computer doing my school work. As I do that, I listen to music. It’s not like I can do anything else while doing homework.
EWWW sleep with makeup?!?!
I always take it off…it can give you eye problems – the eye doctor told me that…
I come home after a wedding and take a good shower, including my hair.
I feel almost the same except the opposite
I come from a well respected family and Hashem blessed us with parnasa etc. – I’ve been going out with my bf for 2 and a half years already and his family isn’t the most religious (they wear pants) and they don’t have much money but ever since I’ve been with him I’ve brought out the best in him. He goes to yeshiva every night, he goes to shul almost every morning, he started wearing tzitzus every day – all of which he never did b4 he met me. Even though in the beginning I didn’t think it would work out because I didn’t think he deserved me (even though I’m definitely not miss perfect), I now see that he is the right one.
MiddlePath – I hope she makes the right decision – cuz money etc. isn’t all that matters.
cool I never realized 🙂
I just save it to my phone

6 years ago, my dad, who I was very close to passed away. Besides for prayers and going to a social worker, my friends supported me (I was only 13.)
I think it’s a bad habit cuz of the kind of music it is…there’s no point in listing names.
I don’t have an mp3 or iPod but I’m on the computer all day, every day.
I keep telling myself not to listen to it for a month. I started July 12th and broke it today. I only held back myself all these days cuz of the 3 weeks/9 days and all these days I’ve been listening to the AKA Pella CD (which was the same non jewish music with Jewish words)
worse…listening to non jewish music
Yay I got permission lol 🙂
the number is 718 331 8463
They dropped off the same envelopes by my house again today and when I went around collecting it, only 1 other neighbor had it on their step…it was weird. I wonder if the others took it home already.
they are quite a strange couple 😉
wow me too…it sent a chill down my spine
what’s the reliable source?
There’s a number I have that you call and put in your zip code and you have the option of choosing if you wanna hear the time for chatzos, alos, mincha etc.
Am I allowed to post the number?

making someone upset isn’t nice even if it is a prank, which I don’t think it is…
mods don’t have the right to upset people either…
I’ve just been a member for 2 days but I’ve been on other forums (non Jewish ones) and the ppl treated each other very nicely. This is an embarrassment to our own religion. I’m ashamed.August 3, 2011 2:48 am at 2:48 am in reply to: mods! when someone calls you a 'dolt' they're calling you an idiot!! #1034583

Hey Bar Shattya when you called me a dolt I ignored it but if you see its bothering somebody just stop and say sorry…
pizza, macaroni…Idk what’ll be the rest of the days but I was able to eat fleishigs yesterday cuz I’m sefardi.
Someone told me Ashkenazim can’t take a shower in the 9 days, I guess it isn’t true… Thank G-d!
It really annoys me when I walk into a grocery store and I walk past some Jewish men who I can’t stand near because of all the layers they wear! I didn’t wanna think about how it would be this week…
I wasn’t old enough to vote then…but if I was old enough I would vote M’Cain

Am I allowed to say Disney World on this forum?
People usually refer it to women that they should be tzinus – not just clothing wise.
About a month ago, they dropped off white envelopes by everyone’s house so I went out collecting them from everyone and threw them out.August 2, 2011 2:18 am at 2:18 am in reply to: West Africa – Orthodox Brooklyn Man Dies in Sierra Leone #792701

Oh ok sorry so can I at least post the story or is that not allowed either?
If not there’s no point in this thread: it can be deleted.
Please post the story. But please do not cut and paste it. There may be legal issues with that also.
I think I’m having a problem starting a topic can someone help me how to?
Arthur is rated PG13 I just checked today when my sister’s watched it
Why is it ok for a rebbi to make something an issur d’oraisa if it’s not written in the torah?
Not only chasidim believe in spiritual powers of their rebbe. Sephardim (at least the ones I know) believe in kabbala and in kabbalistic rabbis.
I agree that internet should be taught to be used when filtered and for productive purposes. I feel that if people just have a filter and aren’t taught the reasons for having it and don’t know the real dangers of the internet, the filter has no purpose.
When I was studying for a CLEP, I was using a non jewish forum where users were able to send messages to each other. It happened coincidentally that there was a chassidish guy using the same forum and sent me a message. I answered him back. After that he kept sending me messages and told me where he’s from. He told me he’s married and has 3 kids but he kept talking to me inappropriately until I ignored him. I don’t know how but he figured out my cell number and kept calling. He told me he doesn’t have internet at home. This guy lived a few blocks down from me and it really scared me. I didn’t wanna tell his wife cuz I wasn’t sure if I’m allowed to… anyways the point of me telling the story is to show that we shouldn’t categorize like saying “all MO take the easy way out and all chareidim are all good”
There are modern Jews who wouldn’t do wrong things on the internet and there are chassidish people who will…
If there is a reason, not all my friends will find out about it – I don’t tell everyone what goes on between me and another person.
It’s best to just ask the person before.
Chacham – to answer your question: Who are these mechalelei shabbos texting? And are they being responded to?
They are regular frum people – I was shocked when some of my friends texted me and sometimes they are answered to by others.
I actually know a Jewish school in Flatbush that many students text on shabbos and the school knows about it. It’s a more modern school. But the school still tries working with them instead of punishing them.
At one point the students all decided not to initiate the text. They would only respond to texts. After shabbos they all came back saying they didn’t text anyone because no one started the text.
HaHa I actually just read this joke in the Community Magazine 🙂
I had a guy who kept calling me.
I switched my number and didn’t tell anyone not to give him my number.
It was understood.
mikehall, what you’re saying is true.
A lot of them go to Israeli Day Parade…I always meet them there – it’s very cute to see 🙂
I have a friend who knows that I keep shabbos and texts me anyways. A few weeks ago on motzei shabbat when I checked my phone I saw 3 missed texts and one missed call from Friday night. It was not for an emergency and it hurt me to think that she thought that I would answer back – and this was a regular ashkenaz bais yaakov girl.
aries, I agree with you. The one and only time I texted on shabbat (2 years ago) frightened me – I didn’t tell my parents and they still don’t know. I was afraid I would be punished/yelled at. Instead I told one of my friends who gave me a rabbis number who saved me from doing it again…
Well the sephardim and ashkenazim in my area have nothing to do with each other.. we don’t play with them or anything…It’s not that we hate each other chas vishalom. If we see our neighbor coming outside when we’re outside, we say hello – but that’s where it ends.
I find it very frustrating when people give out my number without getting permission. What if I don’t want to talk to that person?
I always ask the other person b4 giving out her number.
The halachos of sephardim are also very different…
Sephardim can get haircuts during the 3 weeks – the prohibition of cutting hair and listening to music only starts after Shabbat Hazon (just to give an example of 1 halachic difference).
I went to school with Ashkenazim and we had many disagreements that came up in the class where I just decided to keep my thoughts to myself cuz I knew the teacher would think I’m weird. They (Ashkenazim) were the majority and I didn’t feel the need to voice my opinion.
Any other Sephardim on here to help bring out my thoughts?
Arthur books are in bais yaakov libraries…
