Isn’t the Pinchas halacha/principle more inclusive than just with a non-Jewish woman?May 11, 2012 10:23 pm at 10:23 pm in reply to: Having Respect for Your Elders, Kohanim and Rabbonim #898088
Must you stand up for your older brother every time he enters the room or just every time he comes into the home?
And, according to the shittos that say the oldest brother is entitled to kavod even if he has older sisters, do his older sisters have to give him kavod too?
So a woman or a Ger couldn’t become a chief of police?
Since when can you recreate your own rules?
Great point, Health. The reason everyone’s choosing the siyum over the asifa, is because they’d rather not hear the mussar – and instead go to a celebration.
Does being a rebbetzin, by itself, make her a bigger authority in anything than anyone else?
Should people with tempers not get married?April 29, 2012 4:03 am at 4:03 am in reply to: Davening With A Minyan vs. Davening Without A Minyan #871559
popa: What’s your take? I saw an old post of yours saying that its okay to miss minyan. (Or at least not so bad. Talking about bochorim waking up late or vacationing.)April 29, 2012 1:47 am at 1:47 am in reply to: Davening With A Minyan vs. Davening Without A Minyan #871557
sam4: Which question are you answering?
Sam2: 7 days a week, 3 times a day per MB?
I have two questions:
1. Why can a father marry off his daughter like this, but a mother cannot?
2. Why can a father marry off his daughter like this, but cannot marry off his son like this?
Yes, but there is a specific halacha allowing him to.
Sam: Minors (legally) get married all the time in NY and EY.
Sam: Why would what the goyim “label” it make a difference as to whether its rishus or not? What if the goyim start labeling kosher shechita as inhumane and outlaw it (like in Switzerland)?
Why would the Torah create a specific halacha to marry her off at that age if it is rishus to do so? That doesn’t sound correct.
And how would it be more evil today than it was in some other generation?
In New York a 16 or 17 year old can get married with parental consent and a 14 or 15 year old can get married with parental and judicial consent. Under 14 there is no legal way to marry in NY.
The men can tell their wives and daughters.
Yungerman – Annual income isn’t relevant. It is money/assets he currently owns that count.
I think one of the reasons the Torah doesn’t allow a wife to divorce her husband is because women would be too quick to pull the divorce trigger. (As we see the case is with the gentiles, where they can divorce him.)
The $37,000 isn’t income. Income can be greater, as long as cash-on-hand (and cash-like/liquid assets that he can turn into immediate cash) are less than $37K, he could collect tzedaka.
Using that formula, a family of 7 (5 children) that doesn’t have at least over $37,000 on hand (that’s without even offering a greater allowance than $5/meal for Shabbosim and Yomim Tovim – 7x5x3x354=37170) can collect tzedaka.
Presumably they must take into account all their liquid savings (including retirement accounts, if any). I would assume if they own the home they live in that would not be taken into account for this purpose.
Sam2: The Mishna Brura says so, which many people hold by. (It says so elsewhere too, probably in Shulchan Aruch HaRav, which is why Lubavitchers also hold like this.)
Actually, 354 not 365. But, presumably, 384 on leap years.
That’s odd, because my Rov said it is a good thing to take on some chumros. Especially in this inyan we are discussing.
MorahRach: For chinuch many start younger than 3, since by 3 she needs to be used to always being tznius (without exception).
Who started the minhag of men wearing pants?
So figure that, nowadays, a meal probably cost $5 a person. Multiply that by the amount of family members multiplied by 365 x 3. (3 meals a day, right?) Maybe add an extra allowance for Shabbosim and Yomim Tovim, and you should have your figure to determine if you’re eligible to collect tzedaka.
MDG: The ages given in the OP are their mandatory latest ages. But you’re correct. Many parents start even earlier altz chinuch.
Does the Chareidish oilem go by the Mishna Brura (Chofetz Chaim)’s psak?
Children need Mom’s to be at home.
You need to be 16 to get a permit?
I know of a woman with a beautiful marriage who had three close friends that were divorced. These friends kept telling her how wonderful it would be to get divorced and how horrible her marriage was. She pushed them off for a while, but they kept badgering her until they convinced her to get divorced.
The Gedolim of the Yeshivaleit are dead-set against it. In the strongest terms possible. And the Yeshivaleit follow their Rabbonim. So the issue is non-negotiable.
simcha613: Not everyone in Yeshiva is a talmid chochom who is unafraid of his sins. (And non-talmidei chachomim have every right to be in Yeshiva, inasmuch as talmidei chachomim do.) You are also disregarding that these are not milchemes shel mitzva.
YosH: The Yeshivish, and especially the Chasidish, oilem have a greater stay-at-home Mom proportion of families than either the MO and the secular.
My mother is a stay at home mom. And that’s how it is in our family too.
Haleivi: You are absolutely correct. Meddling parents are the largest single cause of divorces. And they are so unnecessary and avoidable and sadly unfortunate.
I don’t understand. According to those that say (Sam?) that it is less of a problem for a guy to touch a gentile woman than a Jewish woman, is it also less of an issue for a Jewish woman to touch a gentile man than it is to do so to a Jewish man?
Is it true that Boro Park is the largest Jewish neighborhood outside Eretz Yisroel?
Is the implication that women who give birth to children while in prison have their child seized by the State and forcibly put up for adoption?
I don’t believe that to be the case.
BaalHabooze: I forget which godol it was that cried during his first Shabbos in America due to the blatant chillul Shabbos he saw with Jews driving.
MCP: I agree with you (regardless of your seriousness.)
I have family that was at Rav Dovid and Rav Reuven’s chasunas. They had seperate seating.
Men aren’t permitted to see women dance and women aren’t permitted to dance in the presence of men. This is something that is unfortunately neglected at many modern weddings (and other events.)
Can you figure out which female posters treat their husbands right and which do NOT?
Rav Chaim said the book (Haleivi is referring to) was apikorsus but the author wasn’t an apikorus.April 24, 2012 11:28 am at 11:28 am in reply to: The Missing 165 Years – Discrepancy Between Jewish and Secular Calendars #1014184
What will happen after the world ends?
How is it in Kiryas Yoel and New Square? Do any (non-emergency) cars ever drive on their streets on Shabbos?
MorahRach – Please don’t leave. I enjoy and appreciate your posts.
Established business. You can see its success.
When a Litvak asks Rav Elyashev shlit”a for a bracha or to daven for him, he too – like a Chosid – is asking for him to be an intermediate with Hashem.
As far as segulos are concerned, aside from finding them throughout the Seforim, we find it in the Torah itself. Like arichas yomim for Shliach Hakan (and Kibud Av).
