I’m sephardi and I always wondered the same thing. When someone hears that an ashkenaz married a sephardi, many act as though something was wrong with the ashkenaz person who therefore had to marry a sephardi.
But I do think that I have a different mentality than most Ashkenazim. However, I went to regular Ashkenaz school so I do plan on marrying someone who’s half and half cuz a full sephardi will have a different mindset than me even though I have a different mindset than a regular Ashkenaz because of my family background.
My siblings (under the age of 13) watch PG 13 and I’ve never seen anything inappropriate on there – it’s a regular kids channel. Why is it ok for kids to read Arthur books but not watch it? The book uses the same language as the show and the show is rated PG 13.
Oh haha thanks… college student is good enough for me 🙂
Idk why but my family makes it seem like the couples who get married at 18 or 19 are the ones who get divorced cuz they didn’t know what kind of person they wanted to marry.
I know a couple who invited another couple to their home and the husband who was the host got divorced and married the other guys wife…it was so sad…
How do you change your subtitle?
I always heard that you shouldn’t wave it out either. We just put it down to go out itself. But the matches are too small for me and it always gets too close to my hand by the time I’m done and It’ll come closer by the time I put it down so I blow it…
smartcookie- sefardim first say a bracha and then light (just like you first say a bracha on food and then eat it)
People who text on Shabbos are usually the ones who can’t go anywhere without their phone, in other words they’re addicted. They know it’s wrong so they try rationalizing. Unfortunately, I’m one of those people who can’t go anywhere without my phone. I was only mechalel shabbos once 2 years ago. Many of my friends are regular bais yaakov girls who look just like everyone else and they text on shabbos…it’s sad.
My halacha teacher this year said ayin hara doesn’t happen unless you believe in it.
Then he showed us something cool to see if you have ayin hara or not.
He filled up a bowl with 6 spoons of water then you dip the tips of your 10 fingers in the water and put in on your face.
After that, count how many spoons are in the bowl. If there’s more than 6, you have ayin hara on you. 2 girls in the class tried it. 1 girl had less than 6 spoons and 1 girl had more. My sister tried it at home and had 9 spoons at the end!
I’m a teen and I don’t watch movies 🙂 – does children’s movies watched at home once in a while count?
I think people who don’t have TV’s at home have a greater desire to wanna see what the world ”out there” is like.
I have a TV at home but barely watch anything.
Also, my parents taught us from when I was little of what’s ok to watch and what’s not ok and they didn’t make the TV be our babysitter.
