Not going to promise, but iy”h we should be wrapping up shooting tomorrow. Hopefully we should have something out for Purim. Thanks for the support!

I don’t know about other cities, but Hatzolah of Lakewood only accepts married members.
Golan Heights Winery in Katzrin is beautiful. I’ve been there. The brands they produce are Yarden, Gamla, Mount Hermon, and Golan. It’s about a two and a half hour drive from Jerusalem.
If you want to see a (presumably) non-drush explanation of the four yesodei habriah, see the Rambam Yesodei Hatorah end of perek gimmel/beginning of perek daled.
I know him for many, many years. Besides for being a very talented singer, he’s also a really sweet guy. Very easy to deal with.
How did no one quote this yet???:

Torah613Torah – My comment was said tongue-in-cheek. I didn’t think they actually used conch shells either.
If he thinks you’re being too OCD in your observance of kashrus, refer him to the eleventh perek of Mesillas Yesharim (about five pages in, depending on the print) where he talks about ma’achalos asuros.
For a real-life example of what he’s talking about, remember the Chicago Tylenol Murders, where an estimated 31 million bottles of Tylenol were recalled in response to a total of seven reported deaths.February 6, 2014 10:30 pm at 10:30 pm in reply to: What did people do before measuring cups were invented? #1004159
This question makes no sense. Measuring cups by definition are used to measure a standard, agreed-upon measurement. That measurement could not have been agreed upon unless someone had a cup which held that amount, or was marked off to show that amount. Once you have one, you can make a million.
Unless you’re asking how people measured ingredients for recipes before they had standards for measurements. I presume they had to test proportions (5 horns of black pepper to 1 1/2 conch shells of baking soda) until they found something that worked, which is the same thing they do nowadays.February 3, 2014 11:21 pm at 11:21 pm in reply to: Do people who are uglier have more yiras shomayim? #1002064
This question makes no sense because I’m super good-looking and I have loads and loads of yiras shamayim.
Become a shomer kishuin?
RisingSun613 – Good point. Also if you never have kids, you don’t have to worry about them ever not being tznius.
If you look in the Koren Tanach they have the “real” perakim printed on the side. I’m not sure what the origin of those are though.
Interestingly, in Tanach the perakim are insignificant and the pesukim are; while in Mishnayos the perakim are significant and the mishnayos are not.
P’rakim are of zero significance according to our mesorah.
See Tosafos in Bava Kama 17a about gadol Talmud torah (don’t remember the d”h at the moment).
Don’t understand your logic.
$.07 (cork) + $4.00 is $4.07. Your missing $.03!
Hmmm … I think The Jewish Press got it right, and you got it wrong. $4.00 is not $4.00 more than $.07
Here’s a link. No Links Allowed
Should be cork $.05 and bottle $4.05, am I missing something here?
oomis – Not to be motzi la’az, but you can’t put Helfgot in the same sentence. As Yossele. (See what I did there?) At best, he is a chazunishe singer.
Also, I wouldn’t say that Kossevitsky reached his notes effortlessly. Watch videos of him singing and you’ll see that his face turns beet red. In contrast, Yossele barely moved when he sang.
What are the lyrics to the famous Lubavitch song “Oy oy oy”?
In no particular order,

rationalfrummie – I don’t see how that conflicts with what I said, but if you want a nice explanation on that, see Ohr Gedalyahu on Chanuka (the one about Torah Sheba’al Peh). It’s a long piece, but somewhere in there he talks about this.
Sorry to burst your bubble, but no two anything are exactly the same.
(Also see Rambam Yesodei HaTorah 1:7)
oomis, VERY well-said. There is no such thing as true morality. For us Jews, eating pork and marrying gays is as immoral as murder. Obviously there is a concept of mitzvos kalos and chamuros, but there is no external form of “morality” playing any role.
Lawrence Kellerman uses the human race’s general condemnation of murder as one of his four approaches to proving there is a god, in his book Permission to Believe.
I can’t, my smartphone is broken. (Did I really have to be the one to say that?)

Personal choice would be Mesillas Yesharim, Alei Shur, and Igros Moshe, respectively. Tomar Devorah is a great sefer too, and generally not as hard to read as Mesillas Yesharim.

Hi, I want to get a tattoo to express my individuality. Do you mind if I look through this book of tattoos you’ve done for other people?
I think Weiss geirim should only be allowed to marry other Weiss geirim.
Big deal. When I was in school they made us clean toilets as a punishment. When we were 8.
I wrote them a letter:
So remember when you said that Max Stark had a list of enemies a mile long? Well I guess he had more friends than enemies, and now it looks like your list of enemies is two miles long.January 2, 2014 11:34 pm at 11:34 pm in reply to: How to convince 18 year old that getting a job is as important as learning… #997117

Not all jokes have punchlines. Think about non-sequiturs.
Did you know that if you took all the arteries from your body and laid them end-to-end, you’d probably die because you would have no arteries.
If you were stranded on an island and you could only bring ONE food with you, you better hope you get rescued.
