to 2cents: He may be allowed, but its an abuse of the privilege.
Talk about abuse. I work near a couple of well known hospitals on the upper east side. A member of Hatzola, whom I think is a (male) nurse, takes advantage of his EMT plates to park in a NO PARKING area every day. Parking is hard is this neighborhood, and parking lots are expensive. If you take a job around here, this is the price you pay. He has a large HATZOLA parking placard in his window, his not on any call — what does the average pedestrian goy think?
I for one, admire Rabbi Purzansky for his out outspokenness. There is nothing he is saying that isn’t true. Perhaps someone from Teaneck can tell us, “Does he say these things from the pulpit”? Given the makeup of his shul and community, I would applaud him if he did. This must be a man with a lifetime contract. Kol Hakovod!
The book is called “Mr Popper’s Penguins. It was written in 1938. There is NOTHING wrong with book.
In New Square all the Skvere chasidim wear boots on shabbos.
I hate to break your bubble zahavasdad, but Avrom Fried does not do concerts for free. Take the HASC concerts, he get in excess of $10K each year. Good for him, he has a talent and he exploits it. So what if he does weddings on Tuesday nights? A guy gotta make a living.
The beard for Matisyahu was part of his persona. It’ll be back –or they won’t let him in the mikva!
I know a mother who is trying to save her son some time. When he gets home for Bain Ha’Zaminim, he “needs” to date seriously. To save him time, the mother “pre-dates” the girls. She will meet 3 or 4 young ladies for a cup of coffee and chose which ones he should date. So, here the girl meets the boy’s mother before meeting the boy!
Well Eman, you’re lucky that the Starbucks gave you an outlet to plug in your laptop. Many no longer do.August 16, 2011 1:46 pm at 1:46 pm in reply to: Kohanim not being able to go to exhibits with real dead people. #800173
To MDG — There is a Tshuva written by Rav Moshe zt”l to Rav Shimon Schwab zt’L regarding kohanim and going to med school. Rav Moshe makes it very clear that it is forbidden.
Question for kohanim — I hear that its a problem going to the Liberty Science Center. Can anyone confirm this?June 28, 2011 6:24 pm at 6:24 pm in reply to: A third of Litvish families I know, have one or more single daughters 25 and up #909048
#health — I don’t think that Rabbenu Gershon was influenced by the goyishe societyJune 28, 2011 5:43 pm at 5:43 pm in reply to: A third of Litvish families I know, have one or more single daughters 25 and up #909041
#Health “The avg. Jewish woman here in our society could never imagine letting their husband be married to s/o else! Why? Because it’s against the Goyishe society. ”
I think Rabbenu Gershon would disagree.
To: Mother in Israel. Marrying your (former) brother-in-law is quite common and 100% Halachicly permissible.
Just this past shabbos, in learning Gemora Yevomas, the Magid Shiur spoke about a case he was involved in. A young man died childless – and the only brother was 4 years old. In order to do Chalitza, you need a godol. Not just bar-mitzvah, but a bona fide godol. The poor widow now has to wait 10 years before she can remarry.
“But nursing is and no man should go into it. We learn that from paroh.” By that logic, no women should become a doctor, we learn that from the Rambam (who was a doctor).
You can’t have it both ways — you want your wife to go to a female doctor, you want a frum doctor who understands the shailos — but no women and chas v’shulom, a frum women, should become a doctor. Wake up.
Since this article was about in E”Y, what happens when they turn 18 and HAVE to go to the army?
I think they should replace the barcodes with RFID tags and put it in their wallets. This way you could (1) automatically keep track of when anyone entered or left the bais medrash (cuts down on the slackers) and (2), you could just walk near a fellow to read his tag. No need to squint to read the barcode. Even better yet- with enough RFID readers, you could keep the exact location of anyone in the Bais Hemedrash in an updated database, accessible from a iPhone app. Wow! I think I have an idea for a new business!
