Yes of course!
Go checkout the coffee room, see who’s responded to stupid comments on Yeshiva world, (and other Jewish blogs), add more of your comments. and repeat!
On the Lower East Side of Manhattan there is only one mikvah . It is primarily a Womens Mikvah so the rooms are of course private. It is however also available daily morning’s, erev shabbos & yomtov for men too. I know, cause I’ve used it. So that’s an option.
I don’t know the phone # off hand but you can certainly Google it. I know I’ve seen the info online. Much Hatzlacha!
To The Wolf……OY VEY!!
I thought you were Orthodox!
Can anybody help me and explain to me.
Is Sefaria kosher to use?
After all it seems to be run by non-religious people who probably one shouldn’t rely on for mesorah appropriate translations etc.
Also I’ve been told that they sometimes use Christian sources for translations.
Please all, It seems like a pretty good site, so I’d love to download from them but without any guilt or misgivings. Thanks all.
Thanks everybody for taking the time to answer my question….appreciated!
To “Geordie613”, Thanks! I had not heard of the book, perhaps I’ll look into it, Thanks again!
To “Forshayer”, thanks for your input, and that makes sense
To “sifsei chachamim”, be a mentch and grow up, if you don’t have anything to add to the conversation then don’t.
To “Joseph”, Oy what did I expect from you!
To “klugeryid”, thanks but I don’t remember any story, please fill us in.
To “hershh”, Oy almost as snarky as Joseph. There are so many tzadikim and many get lost in the shuffle. All I asked was that this Rebbe was never seen advertised as massively as this year, but from what I see of your response, I take it that you’ll just insult me further instead of sharing some mature adult discussion, Sheesh!May 9, 2019 9:20 am at 9:20 am in reply to: What is the origin and history of the electric menorah? #1724844
Actually,I’ve always wondered how it’s accepted across all shuls to have an electric menorah by the amud. Not saying there’s any problem with it, just seems like an item that would have been controversial when initially introduced, yet it’s acepted everywhere as if that’s the way it’s always been. But obviously it wasn’t there before the lightbulb!
Phil, never take anything Joseph says personally. It’s him not you. All he does around here is look for ways to poke and irritate his fellow Yidden under the guise of his alleged version of “true yiddishkite”.
Interesting conversation. I’d like to commend you guys today.
More often than not, the comments are just people screaming immature snarky remarks back and forth,
but this topics postings by most everybody are mentchlach and mature.
THANKS! EVERYBODY! I’m enjoying the back and forth! keep it going! 🙂
DaasYochid said that
“We don’t universally keep a day to commemorate Tach V’tat, and Shabbos is not a commemoration of the Crusades”
Tach V’tat may not be universally commemorated but it is commemorated and considered the norm to do.
And “the Shabbos is not a commemoration for the crusades”. Well we certainly are saying a tefillah about it EVERY shabbos year round, so if those Rishonim that instituted that, then SURELY the Holocaust which was multiple times more horrific should perhaps more certainly have a specific tfilah every shabbos. Just like the crusades.
I still haven’t seen anyone here explain why tach vetat is okay to have a separate day for it and not say ‘oh just include it on Tisha Bav’. Even more so is a kasha about ‘av harachamim’ which is for the crusades and is not only given its own special time, its done on EVERY Shabbos! When you’re not even supposed to do aveilos on shabbos. Even more so the crusades supposedly ‘only’ killed maybe 10-20 thousand yidden not 6 million!
What’s more fun at a campfire roasting pickles or marshmallows! Yay go marshmallows!!
(Especially those with toasted coconuts coating).
Joseph, what’s your source that Jews “uninterruptedly customarily worn a hat or other near full head covering since ancient times”?
It appears that that gemorah about wearing a head covering implys that it was a novel idea, or at least most certainly not a common minhag. And even then only when davening.
1)One of my relatives,passed away in 1968- in his early 70’s. Unfortunately, he had smoked when people were unaware of its deadly effects!
The Jewish world could’ve benefited from his tzikus for many years,if he had known how harmful smoking could be.
This relative was a Rav who had miracles performed for him. These miracles were witnessed by Rav Elazar Simcha Wasserman,zt”l.
2)If someone would take some time to provide information /suggest ideas re: my earlier topic: ** COURSES IN COMPUTER TRAINING ** , I would greatly appreciate it! As long as the courses are given in the 5 boroughs (preferably-Brooklyn/Manhattan/Queens)that would be great!
I’m curious, the OP said that if he didn’t give her a ride she wouldn’t have any way to get to work.
Well, when she took the job how did she plan on getting there?
This is my take of the story after hearing many versions over the years, including the picture the Mod previously linked to.
The Chazon Ish was an Illuy a genius, who used his knowledge primarily for Torah.
However, he would have been at the top of his field had he chosen any branch of knowledge.
So when the brain doctor hesitated to operate, the Chazon Ish spoke to him and asked to be shown a diagram of the surgical site. (That is where the famous diagram comes in).
When seeing the diagram with the explanation of how the standard procedure of operating was done, the Chazon Ish reviewed the info with the diagram and suggested an alternate approach which impressed the surgeon who followed through with that method.
Not to compare my wife to the Chazon Ish.
Many years ago my wife needed some facial surgery that was to include some plastic reconstructive surgery too.
She asked the doctor about what it was going to look like afterwards.
My wife was flabbergasted that she had to offer that suggestion even though she has no medical knowledge, just lots of common sense.
OOPS! someone just pointed out to me I made a typo in last post.
I made reference to a place “BoldDesign”. I meant BoldEdge. I don’t know if anyone noticed.
Anyway if any one has some more info to share about the mentioned places or other places….please share what you can. Since no decision has been decided yet! Thanks & Kol Tuv.
Thanks everyone for your input…
We’ve heard of BoldDesign, they only have classes women.
I’ve also seen in the “Torah Times” an advertisement from Bramson ORT for graphics design for men. It’s a 30 credit certificate. Anyone know anything about that?
Pixelate…Thank you for extended size post…appreciate the info…I’ll pass it on to my friend for whom i posted this…Kol Tuv
Nu! doesn’t anybody have some info to offer?…Thanks in advance!
RebYidd23 says “Female Dominated”? No men in this field?
Hey, everybody seems to have opinions on everything here in the coffee room, no one has any info to offer for my friend,
Yaasher Koach in advance!
