CTLAWYER, well said!
Eating halva with lo mein or having halva for dessert? I would think mixing both would create a very ‘flamboyant’ taste, lol.
I was listing top foods I like, not what goes with the other.
Why do you insist I think there is a problem with Chinese food? I initially posted it as to change the previous subject and talk about something less serious. By the way, I have tried kosher Chinese it tastes great in my opinion. It was some traditional rice with vegetables and hot sour soup. Yummy!
I also never said that the food you eat makes you a certain person. I said there are similarities between many of the Ashkenazi and Russian/Ukrainian cuisines. I think certain foods were adopted by the Jews from Eastern Europeans during the Pale of Settlement life, correct me if am wrong.
I can’t disagree, LU. If a moderator would be kind enough to delete it, close it or at least remove the name from my first post, it would be best. It actually is leshon hara thread when I took a second look. Thank you!
I’m sorry to intervene in your thread but what does sushi grade fish mean?
WinnieThePooh, very informative answer! I am interested in the Jewish life in the United States, and primarily in New York/New Jersey area, so it is interesting to see the opinion of the people who have experience with or know about it (kosher Chinese).
My family comes from Russian roots, and it is a staple to eat pelmeni/kreplach, holubtzi/holishkes, bagels, lox, cream cheese, kefir, herring, and braided bread; I have now started purchasing challah from a Jewish store they bake every Friday. It is immensely similar to Ashkenazi Jewish food and I’m very happy about it.
Hashemisreading, can I add hummus and halva? Now that’s yummy alongside Chinese food.
No, it’s alright, I understood what you meant.
I want to take the chance to say I might have been wrong for mentioning your name in the CR trend thread, LU. I meant no harm , and if my actions were seen as offensive, I apologize.
Pointing a gun? Eerie! I’m interested to hear what happened.
Kinderlach sounds sweet, I would call my children that one day.
Meno, I am sure Lilmod Ulelamaid’s intentions are friendly and I never got the impression her appreciation was not enough or insincere. Quite the contrary, she is absolutely nice. Sometimes words aren’t needed indeed, I’m not saying it’s plus one instead, but if she feels like it’s a better way for her express herself I don’t see a problem.
My only problem is when people try to shove “trendy” things in others’ faces just because they are trendy. And if you don’t do it like them, they judge you. That happens to be people from the secular ‘modern’ world. Yuck!
LU, I understand you.
Anyways, is kosher Chinese food a good thing? I read there are a few restaurants in New York that serve kosher. Would you eat there?
LU, I don’t object. Also, if your influence has been CR and not ‘facebook’, then no judgements. The moderators should reach a consensus and decide whether they allow it or not. Regardless, LU, I will always look forward to read your posts with great interest.
Hashemisreading, same. I also seem to be quite well sheltered.
I appreicate your words, golfer! I have had experience with the vowels, and it does seems hard but certainly not impossible. Thanks for the motivation; I will make sure to come back to tell how it went once I learn Hebrew (whenever that may be).
May Hashem bless the person who found it. Everything has its reasons, I believe. It might be a call to action, maybe to focus less on your phone when you go out. I’m very happy you can have it back, Baruch HaShem!
YW Moderator-20, I agree completely about the outside references being kept at a minimum. I might be the only person here who has only this website and an e-mail as a way of communing with people throughout the world. I do not like secular influence being brought into others who wish to stay away from it.
Lilmod Ulelamaid, I will be biased and say whether you use numerical points or not, you are my favorite poster so I hope any changes in the moderation do not affect your posts as you are very helpful.
Hashemisreading, sometimes we wrongly interpret written words. I don’t say or deny that bashing comments exist, however most of the time we just need Rashi’s commentaries to explain us what exactly a certain person is trying to express through their choice of words. In other words, what could look like a bashment (creative!) could be an encouraging word of advice, even if we don’t realize it.
Maybe CR has always been an encouraging place, it’s just that only a few realize it.
Thank you, LB 🙂 I won’t use exclamation points, since you don’t like them.
I’m glad you are well and everything went normal for you, Baruch HaShem.
Thank you a lot, Lilmod Ulelamaid! Tremendously encouraging words.
I understand the frum lingo containing Yiddish, as I have studied German at school. Last week I learned the alef beis, cursive, and have watched films from the 1930s, understanding most of it, ???? ??? ????; also take time to practice it by reading old Yiddish newspapers. I want to learn Hebrew (for Torah study only) but it will take a very, very long time and plenty of effort. So far, I feel comfortable among this online Jewish community here, and learn many things from everyone.
LU, that was nice of you; with G-d’s help, it will happen.
My only interests are Jewish holidays and Yiddishkeit, not secular or gentile holidays.
I’ll do it instead of him: Goyish.
It could be that some wear fedoras and some homburgs. Many fedoras are larger than the homburgs and thus you might have thought they have gotten bigger. I could be mistaken, but I think it is a valid point.
Correction: I meant to say too much vegetable oil conspumtion is unhealthy, not vegetable consumption as in potato consumption.
Here’s my explanation:
I would suggest cholent, best way to preserve the vitamins of the potatoes and it is yummy to me.
LU from what I have seen is a very intelligent person. She is always trying to help, and I think she gives great advices. Lightbrite, you seem young and interested in learning about many things Jewish. I’m not even Jewish (yet) but I am as interested as you are, however not as knowledgable as I have a long way to go.
Thank you both for contributing to my previous threads and being as helpful as always! (Sorry lightbrite, I had to use an exclamation point)
Good you pointed that out, I am not used to the great geographical size of the U.S. as comparable to where I live. I googled NY1 news and the video shows most of Northeastern United States is wholly affected. Oh wow, that storm might be a sign of something.
Regardless, may Hashem bless everyone!
LU, I’m very happy you also play chess. I have read about Natan Sharansky, a refusenik, who said the only thing that kept him sane throughout his time (9 years) in prison was playing chess. Baruch HaShem he made it safely to Israel and now helps many Ukrainian Jews from conflict zones to make an aliyah. After all, it seems to be true that those who prefer to play chess are very intelligent.
IQ score does matter to me and I agree with LU that a having an immensley high IQ could be negative thing.February 4, 2017 10:36 pm at 10:36 pm in reply to: Do you recognize the do you recognize the state of israel thread? #1214680

I like kosher Chinese food. Do you?
Zahavasdad, the community is Sephardic, however, I will be leaving Bulgaria in seven months and what I will attend is not an actual conversion, but a conversion course. It prepares a ger for their journey to Jewish life and religion, and once you are ready you can start the actual giyur. I will spend the months I am in Bulgaria strictly attending each course. There is a Chabad organization as well here, but it is pretty small and it does not offer these courses. I will be granted a U.S. visa (not sure the word is right), kein ayin hara, in a few years and I will be able to begin my actual conversion in New York where the actual immersion into Judaism is going to happen. I hope that clears up any ideas that I am starting that early my conversion. I believe times is important and only G-d knows when I will be part of the Nation. Yiddish is important for historical reasons to me, I myself stem from a Bessarabian family and the Yiddish language was prevalent and healthy during the time my ancestors were living there.
Have a good Shabbos!
It’s up to you to answer what does it mean.
My Orthodox sources for Torah, Talmud, Midrash, Jewish law are as follows: Aish HaTorah, Chabad, Ohr Somayach. I do read on Jewish Virtual Library for Jewish history, and being a secular website is not as issue to me now. I have simply had a wrong perception about the Hebrew revival’s authentic history. To your surprise, I have a meeting with the Orthodox rabbi of the synagogue next week, so you can pray for me it goes well. Good points on the rest, but I never argued about them, so responding is unnecessary.
Gut Shabbos, Nechomach!
I wouldn’t trust that website as a source; however I checked on JVL and it does seem to stem from the secular changes the Haskalah movement brought to the European Jews. I seem to have had a wrong perception of the Hebrew revival. I thought it was meant to replace Yiddish as the language G-d chose to reveal Himself and communicate to the Jeiwsh people.
Rosh Hashanah challah*
Okay, maybe I spent too much time to Yiddish learning the last hour or so and did not realize what I had just typed. Or maybe I love Hanukkah as a joyful celebration a bit much? Either way, it was an interesting mistyping by me.
Doesn’t it contradict the Aharit HaYamim?
I do not think it is compatible with Jewish teachings, and slightly strange why wouldn’t they prepare for the coming of the Moschiach instead?
Also how could they prepare to survive if they think it will be the end?
Or maybe I have misunderstood the question?

I would have to agree with Rabbi Kroloff.
A Chinese man was detained for flying a drone in very high altitudes and dangerously close to airplanes preparing for landing. It should be restricted to science and military use only.
Lightbrite, haha, yes. I actually read about Joseph’s immunity from ayin hara today. How could I have missed that? I need more IQ practice.
Is this a Reform thing?
Kein ayin hara. Here, I said it for you.
The problem is I am not sure if it is. I will talk to the rabbi before I do anything.
