I saw in today’s Hamodia that Normans has released a greek yogurt. It seems like it will be in stores on Thursday. I am so excited to finally try it! Everyone keeps talking about it. Way to go Normans!December 5, 2012 9:23 pm at 9:23 pm in reply to: Ibuprofen for Children – Kosher? #911307
I know that Rav Belsky holds it is 100% treif. It has gylcerin in it and even if you dilute it 1-60 in water it is still no good.
We only use suppositories or Triaminic has an OU.
not a chance in the world rabbi belsky holds it is assur min hadin.

I hired Mr. Berman from budget exterminator. He is not cheap, but he did the job. I lived above a shul and all my neighbors in the building were infested. They hired other people because they didn’t want to spend that much and they had big problems. I never saw a mouse after he finished, and I lived there for another 2 years. I told the neighbors it was worth it to spend the money and know the mice were gone. A neighbor recently called me for his number and hired him to redo the apartment. Now he is mouse free. (He is Jewish but not yet religious) 917-709-9038May 1, 2012 1:56 am at 1:56 am in reply to: Chai Rotel Segulah #872543
I appreciate that Tzedakah is a good thing, I don’t think anyone is trying to deny that. I am trying to see if anyone knows if giving tzedakah for the festivities in Meron to celebrate the yartzeit and honor the Tanna Rashbi has proven success. It seems like it has and even tzaddikim like the Ohr HaChaim and the Bobover Rav (Kedushash Tzion)participated.April 30, 2012 1:57 am at 1:57 am in reply to: Chai Rotel Segulah #872532
It seems exactly as HaLeiVi describes it. I saw on one of YW advertisers websites, Yeshuos Rashbi. They describe that Rebbe Shimon promised whoever increases the simcha on his Yartzeit he will increase simcha in their lives. This is because the Zohar describes when he was about to leave this world he gathered around his talmidim and told them “This is my greatest day of joy”, because he was about to receive his portion in the next world.
It seems this is a very high and special day. For sure to donate Tzedakah and increase simcha on his yartzeit is a good thing.
I am sure Hashem will help. The idea of a tzadik is to learn from them and their teachings and to bring us closer to Hashem. Rashbi was from the biggest tzaddikim that came to this world and lit up the world with the Torah he taught. It should be a z’chus for all those that need!
