One Chashuv rosh yeshiva told me “we all do millions of averios and chazal say there’s an onesh for each one”

what kind of wacko would choose a name rasha gamur?? It’s disturbing.
“It is a pleasure to read so many opinions from well informed Jews, the sources, arguments and texts used to represent differing ideas are informative and stimulating.”
I never knew apikorsus is considered to be well-informed. Furthermore, opinions that don’t reflect halacha are quite problematic and have no place in judaism. Additionally, that one can find such heretical ideas stimulating seems extremely dangerous.
“Part of being Jewish is debate and opinion, without it we lose our intellectual heritage and genetic makeup.”
Debate and opinion bound by the dictums and axioms of halacha, yes. Openly agnostic toward gedolim and shulchan aruch, not so much. In fact, it is probably more accutrate to say that such “debates” serve only to undermine authentic judaism and weaken the mesorah.
“As a mother of girls and boys attending Sem and Yeshiva, the ability of my kids to debate and question is something of crucial importance to their spiritual growth.”
True, but not in an unregulated vaccuum.
“hmm an assassin for hire. how much? 20 bucks a pot”
C’mon. Don’t insult me or I might target you. The going rate per hit is early a million, and that’s for a low level target.
“If i were to ask you who is greater – Rav Ovadiah or Rabi Avika — would you say you cannot compare people? Rav Ovadiah or the Rambam? Avraham Avinu?”
We have this concept of niskatnu hadoros, so any comparisons to previous generations are of course going to be quite unbalanced in favor of the older ones.

“That is a fallacy.”
Really? And what orginization is in charge of all kiruv anywhere? There is no umbrella orginization that supervises kiruv. That is not to say there aren’t any “kosher” kiruv orginizaitons – there are. Just they don’t constitute the majority of the kiruv workforce. besides for which i have heard in the name of gedolim whom i cannot quote by name due to the potential controversial aspects of this sensitive topic say exactly the same thing. And no, chabad is not under guidance of any accepted gadol (or even one not accepted (and the deceased rebbe doesn’t count)).
You?? Chas Veshalom. Not yet anyway. . .

There is an inyan of the kovod of Torah that is not true by stam people, which thay cannot be mochel.
You should look at the CR as an oppurtunity to be mekayeim mitzvos d’oraysa, such as standing up for the kavod of gedolim, denouncing heresy, defending the honor of Torah, preach fidelity to real, religous, judaism as passed on through the generations from Chazal without any heretical changes such as reform, conservative, zionist modern, etc.
i also took off for yom tov
Torah Lo Bashamayim Hi. So our seichel is what decides halacha!! we can do whatever we want!!
“We should utilize proper respectful debating skills:
challenge the belief but not the believer…”
There is a mitzvah to stand up and defend aggressively the kavod of gedolim; to belittle apikursos; to shame ovdei avodah zara. Unfortunately, that mitzvah is often applicable here in the CR.
popa is infallible, didn’t you know?
“In other news, when a rebbi teaches something wrong in the torah, you are supposed to stab them with a spear, as the gemara says in Baba Basra 21b”
The pasuk says sword, not spear.
Calling wolf. . . I challenge you to a duel

Original conservative siddur?

These overzealous mods. . .
It’s a bad idea to be matriach the rabim for your mitzvah – it definitely won’t be looked at as all that chashuv in shamayim. Rav Yisrael many times was very meikel in halacha to be machmir in ben adam lachaveiro, for example would use minimum amt of water so the maid wouldn’t have to get more, which back then meant a whole long arduous trip to the well to carry a heavy bucket.
Many gedolim lament the fact that so many people go into kiruv without the proper hashkafic training and therefore violate and throw out halcha whenever they feel it’s appropriate bec the “ends justify the means”. One put it this way: The kiruv movement, unlike almost all other major international religious jewish orginizations, has no guidance from gedolim at the top and no one in charge; rather it’s just a bunch of people doing there own thing the way they feel it should be done. Furthermore, many kiruv people are more concerned with their “stats” and as soon as they get a guy to keep shabbos, kashrus and taharas hamishpacha, they leave him and don’t follow up. (Nor do they give them any real halachic knowledge to live the other aspects of their lives or even for the fundemental ones aforementioned!) Kiruv can only be undertaken by those with years of Torah learning, hashkafa training, and a Rebbe to call with shailos as they arise.
P.S. his is not to take away or minimize in any way all the tremendous good that has been accomplished by the kiruv movement.
Man and woman are two halves of a neshamah. The gemara therefore states that a man without a woman is but half a man (ie human).
there’s no issur to do teshuvah.
If you drink off getting dumped, there was probably a good reason she dumped you.
Taka. Some official in Washington said something about it.
“No such thing as a minor mitzvah…”
Some mitzvos are more important than others. That is pashut.
