It’s an honor and a privilege to live in the second greatest country of all time. (Eretz Yisrael during Bayis Rishon and Sheni being first.)December 19, 2017 1:53 pm at 1:53 pm in reply to: Explaining to girls that only boys light the Chanukah Menorah #1430167
Women are allowed to light a Menorah. In fact, they should be encouraged to do so.
It’s important to know the information that scientists are presenting in order to properly debate them. For starters, according to scientists, the age of the Universe is around 14 billion years old, Earth around 4.5 billion. Modern humans (Homo Sapiens) according to them started between 200,000 – 300,000 years ago. Our Rabbonim and Frum Scientists should figure out a way to challenge their conclusions.
Gasp!… Chas V’Sholom.
My father inherited a coin collection of mostly ancient Jewish and Roman coins from my Grandfather. It’s worth around $120,000.
I’m sorry for being impolite in my reply yesterday, I was in a bad mood.
@RebYidd23, There is no Kosher Shrimp, Bacon, Cheeseburgers etc. ; therefore your point is moot.
What is so hard with keeping Cholov Yisroel? If you can keep Kosher which is harder to keep(complex Halachos etc.), it should be a piece of cake keeping Cholov Yisroel. Also, there is a wide variety of CY products, so a lack of options is not an excuse either.

They should evacuate ASAP! This storm is probably the worst Hurricane to hit Florida in USA history.
PS.. There is no advice to give them if they plan on staying…
It’s 10+ days before any potential impact, which means it’s virtually impossible to know where Irma will go. That said, the Computer models I have been looking at, the GFS, ECMWF etc have been trending towards an out to sea track. (I’ll try to update later)
Joseph, you’re a direct descendant of Rashi? wow..
People are generally more sensitive about their emotional/spiritual health, than their physical health. Speaking from personal experience, I’m only willing to discuss my emotional issues with my parents or close friends.
You said he is very religious, who cares if he is Litvish or Chassidish.
So whats the problem?
I can’t answer your question about the cost of living in Lakewood, but I do know that is virtually impossible for a woman without a degree to support a family on her own. People who live like this are setting themselves up for a financial disaster in the future R”L.July 19, 2017 11:38 am at 11:38 am in reply to: Should we stop bochurim from chilling and drinking beer at a bbqs.🍻🍖 #1320884
The Alcohol by volume (ABV) of Beer is generally between 4%-6%, the ABV of wine is 9%-16%. Your son would need to drink at least 6+ beers to get drunk. In other words drinking 1 beer once in a while is not a problem.June 21, 2017 5:52 pm at 5:52 pm in reply to: Israeli Frum Soldiers In Meah Shearim Shuls – Solution #1302068
@ Joseph I wouldn’t wear a punk rock t-shirt to Shul; but during the 2014 war in Gaza, I wore a Tzahal t-shirt under my davening jacket.June 9, 2017 2:44 pm at 2:44 pm in reply to: How much say should parents appropriately have in who their children marry? #1292532
The answer is No to all 4 questions.
@ubiqutin Here I copied and pasted an article from the Jewish Journal about the founder of Open Orthodoxy “Rabbi” Avi Weiss.
The Agudath Israel Council of Torah Sages has issued a statement suggesting that a New York rabbi should no longer be considered Orthodox because of his decision to ordain a woman.
Last month, Rabbi Avi Weiss announced that one of his female students would now be known as rabba—a feminized version of rabbi—replacing her previous title of “maharat.” He declared in a statement that the name change “makes it clear that Sara Hurwitz is a full member of our rabbinic staff” at Hebrew Institute of Riverdale, a Modern Orthodox synagogue in the Bronx where he is the spiritual leader.
The Agudath Israel council, comprised of leading haredi rabbis, declared in its statement Thursday that “these developments represent a radical and dangerous departure from Jewish tradition and the mesoras haTorah, and must be condemned in the strongest terms.” The statement, which was signed by 10 members of the council, added: “Any congregation with a woman in a rabbinical position of any sort cannot be considered Orthodox.”
Hurwitz, who has served at the Hebrew Institute for nearly seven years, performs some rabbinic duties, but cannot perform others because of her gender, including acting as a witness, leading religious services and being counted in a minyan.
In recent years, a handful of prominent mainstream Modern Orthodox synagogues have hired women for roles like Hurwitz’s, in which they carry out certain functions that historically were the sole domain of male rabbis, from offering guidance in spiritual or Jewish legal matters to teaching classes and delivering lectures.
Agudath Israel spokesman Rabbi Avi Shafran said that the council’s objection to Hurwitz’s situation is that she is considered a “full member” of the rabbinic staff, in violation of the Orthodox value of “tzniut,” or modesty, for women.
“Some of the roles intended for the ‘rabba’ are in fact roles that women even in the Haredi community have played for centuries, such as counseling and offering wise advice,” he said. “ Others, though, are not, especially those that thrust a woman into a public venue.”
The council also objects, Shafran added, because any change in Orthodox norms must be backed by a “world-class Torah decisor,” and no such authority has lent his name to Wiess’s actions.
Meanwhile, The New York Jewish Week is citing an unnamed source close to Weiss as saying that The Rabbinical Council of America, the Modern Orthodox rabbinical group, is considering kicking Weiss out of its organization. Like many members of the RCA, Weiss received his ordination from the Yeshiva University-affiliated Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary.
If this story is true, then they are a tremendous danger to our community and should be disbanded immediately.
Hi, could I also post links to articles about this hated minority? http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/news/featured/1286560/watch-eida-chilul-shabbos-protest-jerusalem-shabbos.html

For the record when I said you could make a 7% ROI, I meant ‘annually’ not monthly. Aymdock mentioned they use Forex trading, that is very risky ie. you can make a lot of money but you can lose a lot too. Considering that’s what Trade 24 does, I can’t recommend using them especially if you plan on investing all your money with them.April 1, 2017 9:21 pm at 9:21 pm in reply to: #1248156
The average ROI of stocks is around 7% (long term and if you invest wisely), 7% of $20,000 is $1,400. I strongly recommend getting a real job if you only have 20k in the bank.

The downside is money, Prebuilt systems are generally overpriced with low price-performance. If you link me the computer you’re looking at, I could tell you if it’s worth it.
That Depends on what you’re using it for, gaming or work?
Question, do you use a separate washing machine for men/women’s clothing?
Answer: Probably not, the same idea applies to hangars, there is no special energy on them, ie. they are used by both genders with no problem.
Purim question, or serious?
Wait another week before asking this question it’s not Purim yet…(No there is nothing wrong with wearing a blue sweater)
The origin of the Minhag to say “you should live to 120!” Was because Moshe Rabbeinu lived till 120.
@ Meno I said that you should tell them to take a “Deep” puff, by doing that it significantly reduces the chance they will like it. (btw I wasn’t being serious)
I’d say 6 years old, give them a cigarette and tell them to take a deep puff… I guarantee they will never smoke again their entire life. 🙂
@ProSemGirls -@Pro Jews- after reading Moshe1994’s response, I agree with you. I am pained to see such virulent negativity on a Jewish site.
I think (hope) you meant virulent rationality.
If it puts pressure on these fools to stop this “Minhag” then it’s 100% beneficial.
Source, from Quora:
When one pilot dies their place is taken either by another pilot traveling as a passenger or by a cabin crew member who assists the other pilot with check lists and other tasks. Many cabin crew members are either pilots’ themselves or have had some training for this kind of emergency. In addition, they are known to the company and so they can be trusted.

@LU What do you mean by “our heroes” and why can’t American soldiers especially the ones that liberated us from the holocaust be included in that category?

The Neturei Karta desire the destruction of the State of Israel, and allow the Arabs to take control; with the logic of better that Arabs run the country than secular Jews. If C”V something like that happened it would be 1492 all over again with a mass expulsion of the Jews R”L
Kj chusid: That’s not true “true Torah Jews” is satmar run and operated,not to C”V lessen the goodness of Neturei Karta but there 2 seperate things
Do you Support the Neturei Karta!?

I agree 100% that 27 years in jail is way to much time, and is completely anti Semitic. But considering the nature of the crime he is accused of, I don’t think Trump will pardon him.
On May 12, 2008, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security agents raided the plant and arrested 389 workers who lacked documentation. At that time, it was the largest raid into a workplace in the United States.
On October 30, 2008, one day after the Iowa labor commissioner fined Agriprocessors $10 million for wage violations, Rubashkin was arrested on federal conspiracy charges of harboring illegal immigrants and aiding and abetting aggravated identity theft. Federal officials claimed that Rubashkin intentionally helped illegal workers obtain false documentation. After making an initial court appearance, he was released the same day on $1 million appearance bond after agreeing to wear an ankle monitor that tracks his movement, to limit his travel to northern Iowa, and to surrender his and his wife’s passports.
Considering these facts it’s unlikely that Trump will pardon him.
