maybe the kids that the yeshiva want get turned off by the colored shirts. maybe they want to keep up their excellent standards and feel they can’t unless they attract those kids.December 4, 2011 2:29 am at 2:29 am in reply to: Articel on NY Post Web-site on religious Jews child abuse #832523
Thank you yitayningwut for your excellent posts. ALSO, to
mikehall12382 and other rabbi bashers out there NOBODY IS DECLARING RABBIS TO BE MALACHIM OR INFALLIBLE. what people are saying is that in general, al pi rov, most rabbanim are warm caring people who truly care about our kids. honestly, after seeing the way rabbis are being bashed constantly in our communities, constantly being micro-scrutinized on every action they take on every issue,etc. do you honestly believe that most rabbis just care about the money or kavod. honestly, how much money and kavod is there. I’m not saying that there is no kavod involved and that rabbonims’ judgements are never clouted by negious but come on. most rabbonim are in their position because they honestly care about HASHEM and the khal. Maybe we should give them the benefit of the doubt that as a whole they know what they;re doing.
I think everyone here can realize that because of the severity and sensitivity of this issue that it should be handled by the right people. for the past 3300 years we as a nation have believed those people to be those carrying the flag of torah. this issue has many serious Halachic issues and like all halachic issues should go to those who spent there lives learning Torah. They know what Hashem wants alot more than the bloggers, baalei batim, askanim, and activists. Unfortunately there are many people who don’t know what bracha to make on their chicken soup but think that they can decide weighty halachic and hashkafic issues better than all the gedolim since Moshe Rabbeinu
the roshei hayeshiva of cc brooklyn are great talmidei chachamim and are extremely dedicated to the mesora that chofetz chaim tries to give over . if they see a need to make a white shirt policy they probably know what they’re doing and probably spent many hours deliberating.
obviously, the only people who would call themselves names such as bombmaniac, rasha gamur, mos yumas,itbach al alam,etc. are people that have a disturbing tendency towards violence. the same type of people who spend chol hamoeds at shooting ranges, atv parks or drive around holding bb guns. why don’t you pick a normal screen name such as chofetz chaim or mod80 or bar shatya
hmm an assassin for hire. how much? 20 bucks a potOctober 23, 2011 7:53 pm at 7:53 pm in reply to: Temple Beth El in BP ought to become an Aish Kodesh type shul! #822235
rabbi snow has had success attracting people. I repeat again there might be other factors involved. honestly, this topic doesn’t really belong on the cr. any suggestions should go to someone involved in the shul who can make proper decisions.
is that all you can come up with how about gumball or the goq. talk for yourself are you homicidal?October 23, 2011 5:41 pm at 5:41 pm in reply to: Temple Beth El in BP ought to become an Aish Kodesh type shul! #822230
the rav of YIBP has been mekarev many people over the years and tries very hard to get new members including non-frum, non-shul goers and people who need a different atmosphere. please be careful before putting him down.there may be other reasons why the shul doesn’t attract the large crowd anonymous wants them to get
i don’t think most threads turn into lashon hara. unfortunately though, i have noticed some serious lashon hara on the cr over the past few weeks starting almost right after yom kippur. let us try hard to work on our lashon hara and think twice or three times before posting anything that may involve L”H
which highway is begamatria “you will be pulled over and get a ticket”. on a totally different note why would someone call himself rasha gamur. beats me
part of perek shira is to realize that the world is a song and hashem is the conductor.everything is in his hands and it’s all for the best. the zechus of bitachon alone helpsOctober 18, 2011 2:03 am at 2:03 am in reply to: What to do to the chazzan who takes too long for hallel #818599
leave and make a breakaway minyan outside. when everyone leaves he’ll get the hint
what about spitting on a wound and saying “kol hamachala asher samti..” sounds like a good segula to me. maybe a disastrous side effect such as ein lo chelek beolam habba but whadya know
the real question is are you allowed to play paintball. it’s like painting just not on paper
have a refuah shelaima and chag kosher vesaneach. may you have the ability to enjoy yom tov.
sam, the medrash says that the dor hamabul was destroyed bec. they legalized gay marriage and bestial marriage. That people performed these toaivos wasn’t enough to warrant destruction. “leagalizing and creating a philosophy out of it was.
rosnr, judaism may sound primitive but we believe in G-d and that he rules the world and controls everything in the world. Hashgacha Pratis is true. I don’t know what the “modern more mature ” way of understanding is.
600 kilo do you know the Brooklyn murderers familly to declare them all responsible.Because a child had an accident that may cause mental problems the parents should assume that the kid is a cold blooded killer?!
i guess the question would be who told you to get sunglasses? the eye doctor or the “cool” individual in the picture wearing the glasses
i know some people that went there. they came out to be fine bnei torah. there is a lot of individual attention given to each bochur. the hashkafos are the same as every other chofetz chaim.
mp thank you for your post. i found this very inspiring. may Hashem help you find the right shidduch and build a bayis ne’eman bi’yisroel
i’m surprised it wasn’t brooklyn. well cc did have a push to finish gitin
let me guess which cc branch? brooklyn
” Of course, the ones doing the learning are also taken into account. There are those who will always be a little better and those a little worse.”
true but most guys do two blatt a week.
jews have been hated millenia before adversos judeos. i’m sure there would have been another ‘reason’ for anti-semitism. eisav sonei es yaakov
maybe gedolim don’t tell us to be an ohr lagoyim because we have to work on most of klal yisrael first
whats your point.
4 blatt a week for cc is a little too much (especially if you do first time second time) but 2 blatt a week is average
it’s slightly ironic that chofetz chaim, the “slowest” yeshiva on the block covers around 60 blatt gemara, rashi, tosfos, in bekiyus
nu, uncle sam is throwing free money into the street. it would be a chillul hashem not to take advantageJuly 6, 2011 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm in reply to: Two points from this weeks Yated – Kollel & Agudah #787362
bombmaniac if learning after high school makes a big difference as you admit why should it not be the first shidduch question? yes, there are people who work who are better than people who learn but whether or not a boy is learning speaks volumes about him. always? no. most of the time? yes. what else should a boy be guaged by? his parents wealth? whetehr they stack plates?
the branch of chofetz chaim? rabbi goldman?
i am far from a posek so call your local rav. however, i will say one thing. the siman in shulchan aruch that klach quoted (C”M 388 )definitely sounds like there is no mesira in this case. (metzair rabim)
my rebbeim always said that “chitsonios meorrer es hapnimious” only works if you are close to the madrega you are acting out. acting like a madrega way above you may just be gaava, fooling yourself, etc
honestly wolf, why should a stupid comment offend you? alot of people say a lot of stupid things. if we were offended by every one of them our lives would be miserableApril 21, 2011 3:00 am at 3:00 am in reply to: How many times did you say Sh’monah Esreh tonight? #1012057
maariv was like a minefield so many things to remember
why dont you speak to his rebbe or menahel and see what they have to say
i never dated a lawyer or a graphics designer yet i hate all of them
usually when somebody selects a career choice its because they feel they are reasonably good at that profession and that it could make them a parnassa. therefore they dont need a backup plan.On the other hand, a profession of harbatzas torah is chosen by someone devoted to hashem, his torah, and klal yisrael. it might not make a decent parnassa. therefore a backup plan is a good idea
rav chaim kanievski shlita was asked this question. its printed in derech sicha. i dont remember the answer
once you come to terms with the fact that hashem created the world and gave us the torah its not so hard to believe in everything else. after all the creator wrote it
very nice story. gives a little insight into what it means to care for others. where did you take it from? did you write it yourself?
Why is tzitzis out a gauge for a persons level? There are many good torahdik reasons not to wear one’s tzitzis out. I highly doubt that a guy with an untucked shirt with tzitzis flying out is any holier than a normal neat person with his tzitzis in.
a person should do whats right for him. he’ll hopefully find a shidduch and probably have a better marrige than people that do the wrong thing to get a good shidduch
ask your rav or mashgiach they’ll know. better than heter shopping online. try heterbay they have good deals on heterim
i notice that some of the posters here are quick to blame the gedolim or rebbeim or the system (which many times is a code word for gedolim). it might help to actually turn on the brain and realize that there are countless rebbeim out there who understand kids, the internet, and the times better than half the posters here. gedolim are not ‘backward’, ‘live in the 1700s’, or unrealistic. gedolim know what they are doing and if they feel something is inapprpiate they may have a valid reson why
rabbiofberlin: you quoted the rambam but failed to remember that kollel money is not tzedaka. anyeays rav moshe ZT’L has a teshuva explaining why even according to the rambam we can take actual tzedaka money for learning
central park,museums, toys r us,shooting range, pomegranate hang out in shnitzi’s, ice skating, build a bear workshop, barnes and nobles,learn all day without batteling a single minute, disney world, apple store, take the subway, bowling,
