Worse was done in Russia against a Putin rival (he almost got killed and then they put him in jail) and there was no condemnation
Isn’t there a Mishnah in chagigah that says the chachamim told hurdos not to cry because he’s a brother (i know it was to make him feel better, but wasn’t there something that his mother was Jewish)
Sorry yabia he isn’t a troll
To answer the OP,
Rav Shmuel kamenetsky
You mean with a cloth?
Don’t want to start a new thread and don’t know which thread it should go in so I’m putting it here
I saw on Arutz sheva that Zionism started with n tisha bav
Take what you want out of that
I think if a rich Baal tzedakah publicizes his donation it shows that the mosad is worth giving to, just because baalei tzedah are rich doesn’t mean that they give money to any and every thing so those people are showing that it’s worth it to donate to this cause
“The point is for free expression of ideas, I have no issue expressing my beliefs, and when I ask one what his belief is and he wont answer something is strange.“
I asked him the same question about believing that the Rebbe is moshiach and he answered me
Yes, my name is based on the Gemara (ירושלמי ברכות פ”ב ה”ד) that says that Moshiach’s name is Menachem.
(וכ”ה באיכ”ר פ”א, נא. משא”כ בסנהדרין צח, ב דשם גרסינן מנחם בן חזקיה)
I chose this profile name for two reasons:
1) Since my name is actually Menachem (get it? מנחם שמו?)
2) It’s nice to remind myself about Moshiach when I’m online (every word makes a difference – “צריך כל אדם שיראה עצמו כל השנה כלה כאלו חציו זכאי וחציו חיב. וכן כל העולם חציו זכאי וחציו חיב . . עשה מצוה אחת הרי הכריע “את עצמו ואת כל העולם כלו לכף זכות וגרם לו ולהם תשועה והצלה see Rambam Hilchos Teshuva 3:4)
“henceforth it is proof that the rebbe can be moshiach?”
Maybe I’m trying to prove that I can be Moshiach…
[Regarding the names of Moshiach listed in Sanhedrin, the Rebbe’s father Reb Levi Yitzchok writes that all the opinions are true – כל הדעות אמת הם ואלו ואלו דא”ח (לקוטי לוי”צ על מארז”ל ע’ קו)]
Maybe he doesn’t want to turn his thread into a debate about the rebbe just like you told him to start a new thread so really what difference does it make
So to paraphrase a former First Lady that lost to the 45th president
“WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE”
And the democrats deal with manchin will only exasperate it
“My suggestion – Joe Manchin. He is already holding the partial Presidency for 1.5 years and everyone except Progressive (40% of Dems?) are happy with that.”
From YWN WhatsApp group
In a startling turnabout, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sen. Joe Manchin announced Wednesday they had reached an expansive agreement that had eluded them for months on health care, energy and climate issues, taxes on higher earners and corporations and federal debt reduction.
The two Democrats said the Senate would vote on the wide-ranging measure next week, setting up President Joe Biden and Democrats for an unexpected victory in the runup to November congressional elections in which their control of Congress is in peril. A House vote would come afterward, perhaps later in August. Unanimous Republican opposition in both chambers seems certain.
Just hours earlier, the expectation was that Schumer, D-N.Y., and Manchin, D-W.Va., were at loggerheads and headed toward far narrower package that Manchin was insisting be limited to curbing pharmaceutical prices and extending federal health care subsidies. Earlier Wednesday, numerous Democratic senators had said they were all but resigned to the more modest legislation.
A democrat is a democrat is a democrat
Then I guess the question is who will more easily turn on us a frei yid or a non jew
Do you know how people contract monkeypox?
May I ask, is your name based on the Gemara that says moshiach’s name is Menachem, henceforth it is proof that the rebbe can be moshiach?
“ymr: They looked up to me and tried to emulate me.“
This is the funniest line I’ve seen today
Another interesting observation is that commonsaychel didn’t call the person a troll and is actually trying to help a newcomer
If it wasn’t for the aforementioned comment I would’ve thought I’m in a parallel universe
“Do you view Joe Manchin as a “profile in courage”?“
However I know the answer already
“She is a profile in courage, one of the very few on todays political scene. I disagree with her on many issues but can’t help but respect her for standing up for truth, justice and the American way.“
In other words “she has a vendetta against trump and I hate trump, so the enemy of my enemy is my friend”
You sound like someone that believes in flat earth
Write her in on your ballot
I’m sorry, I didn’t know….
But anyways are you saying that’s why your statement is true, because you have no one to be the other side politically?
“Unless things changed in recent years, Rav Shmuel was easily reachable on his home phone. He usually picks the phone up himself when it rings.“
Yeah, I called a number (7-8) of years ago and spoke with him
IMHO R Shmuel is the epitome of gadlus with thinking of other people and being easily accessible
“The Shevat Sofer interprets the pasuk אעשה לו עזר כנגדו when she is voicing an opposite view, she becomes a help. He can see the other side of an argument and does not get lost in tunnel vision by seeing one side only.“
I take it your wife isn’t a republican which explains a lot 😉
Trump wasn’t mentioned
There is winds and cloud covering involved too
I got a number from google maps and the number goes to someone that doesn’t answer and it goes to voicemail
I might have to change my plan
The sun goes closer and then further away as the year goes on
I appreciate the Mazel Tovs but really want to know if the Yeshiva is operating or even if R Shmuel will be there
“The murderer and the gun are together responsible as this parable“
Are you saying people can’t get killed other ways? (Ie car, knife….)
And this was from 11 years ago and I said he is 17 months
If you look at my profile it says I’ve been a member for 14 years 7 months
I have to be old if I was here for that long
So Acs wouldn’t be called and kids taken away if a parent hits their kid in public?
Yeah I saw that (the first part)
Why are schools different than parents?
And Reb eliezer agrees with it!
Democrats are מרחם when it comes to bail reform so it’s understandable that they are cruel when it comes to abortions (or even to arresting a bodega owner)
It all comes from the same place
Wow, I never knew that
כל המרחם במקום אכזריות סופו לאכזר במקום רחמניות
The reason being is because it comes from the same place
“Maybe if more people recognized the pain of these suffering youth, we can do more to actually prevent these acts“
I think instilling in them fear of G-D and authority would prevent it too
It’s more than what the goyim will think, it’s what the goyim will do (put the teacher in jail) if you’re not afraid of that then do something that will get yourself arrested, you’ll understand
“CA: By us Yidden, every aspect of life and daily activity must be viewed through the prism of Torah Judaism. Even a discussion of tying our shoelaces or taking a shower or what/when we speak must be viewed through how we are obligated to do so according to the Torah.“
You’re reading too much into this, if that’s what he’s trying to do then he should ask a shaylah to his Rav not to the CR even if it has such esteemed members as Reb eliezer
Who was talking about yiddishkeit, he’s complaining about a website, so don’t use it
I’m perfectly fine with what moish wrote , I’m just suggesting that he can go somewhere else if he doesn’t like the website, no one is forcing him to visit the site
Not everyone can afford an electric car and when gas prices go down you will still have to pay off your car
If you don’t like the news go somewhere else orstart your own website
Maybe call it Real Yeshiva News
We are in a democracy you know
“just climb the stairs from your basement hideout and discuss life with your mommy“
There you go again
If it’s unbecoming of a Jew I think you should check your yichus
“Must you do the same?“
I see you calling the 45th president names too, you are you acting like him and therefore unbecoming a Jew?
I’m happy you know all there is about that religion and that you think there aren’t other opinions there
“YWN still adheres to minimal editorial standards and the Trump “rallies” have become more like a traveling circus with the same cast of clowns“
You mean like the Jan 6th committee with the same cast of clowns like shifty schiff and Liz Cheney
Stand up when he comes into the room
Don’t sit in his seat
Don’t argue with him disrespectfully
Don’t interrupt him
Ask him about his day first
Serve him food first
Anything else that would show he’s the king of the house
“and he needs to focus on what he does best, not make noise just because.“
It seems that “what he does best” is annoy and expose democrats
Now that is a link
How do you know he hasn’t yet?
