What’s the difference? Unless you live in Ohio, Florida or one of the few other swing states your vote won’t matter in the Electoral College. Electoral votes in New York, California, Illinois, etc are going 100% for Obama.
Was meant to be funny.Chareidim in general are not narrow minded and intolerant. But seriously, if all I knew about Chareidim was from YWN and the coffee room I would think them being narrow minded and intolerant is a generous description. Some on YWN who indicate they adhere to Chareidi Yiddishkeit come off as downright mean and intolerant of differing views of Orthodox Judaism. a non-frum Jew would be repulsed from and not drawn to Yiddishkeit.
Chareidi comes from the Latin word chardos meaning “narrow minded and intolerant.”
Sam2- Baal: I’m not sure if that’s true. We weren’t saying Tachanun on Lag Ba’omer long before they had Hilulas.
Sam2, Then when did we stop saying Tachanun on Lag B’Omer? Was it long before hilula d’Rashbi? When do you figure?
No Sam2 I think you missed the point…but of course you meant to.
You just didnt want to speak to the OP’s question.
Huh? Yaharog V’al Ya’avor are the big 3.
Wat iz a cheep car? car bird drive hahaha
From who? From Jew? WAT?
I always learn during Chazaras HaShas.
Please don’t disparage weirdos…we have feelings too.
Simon says “wear a black hat”.
If you look at photos of Jews back in old Europe pre-Holocaust, you will see that most of them are not wearing black hats; most are wearing gray hats.
Yes. This is correct. If you look at pre war photos of bochrim from the Chofetz Chaim’s Radin Yeshiva most are wearing gray fedoras. Even rare pictures of the CC show him wearing a cap. This black hat custom is an American Yeshiva modern Orthodox thing probably started in Telshe or Lakewood. Definitely no mesorah for it from the alte heim.
Loyal jew- Yichusdik, my point is that today there are blogs and boards for all purposes. We agree that people who believe in toeva r”l shouldn’t post here. People who think Torah is a waste of time r”l shouldn’t post here. So MOs who still believe in the medina shouldn’t post here. It’s not a question of open mindedness because right and wrong aren’t “differing views.”
I get it! So what you’re saying is :
1) People who propagate sinas chinam by “knocking other frum Jews shouldn’t post here.
2) People who use hateful words to other frum jews who disagree with them shouldn’t post here.
3) People who use onaas devarim in the CR shouldn’t post here.
Thanks Loyal jew, I got it!April 17, 2012 8:33 pm at 8:33 pm in reply to: Harav Hagaon R' Chaim Pinchas ZTVK"L!! Please share stories about him #867968
The R”Y ztz”l should be a meilitz yashar for Klal Yisroel.
BTW, One Goal, great hearing from you. Continue to shteig!
We also heard it’s to protect against fires – specifically to protect sefarim.
And all these years I thought HKB”H protects us and our sefarim.
RSZ”A paskens KH”T is chovas tzibbur. so no need to hear a missed Parsha.
“Be careful, as this may mean your kids won’t get accepted into a good yeshiva.”
or be redd a good shidduch.
You were kidding about the “feminist angle”. How about the “un-orthodox” comment. I’d appreciate you not denigrating a Gadol B’yisroel. You started out this post denigrating a person sitting, learning in bais medrish and then speak badly about the heilige Aruch Hashulchan. I believe you have lost your credibility.
Sounds like Chelm…I couldn’t resist.
MT: That’s explicitly wrong. The Poskim say that you put a Gemara on top of a Nach.
Sam2 can you please prodide sources for this statement? Thanks!
If you were so involved with what he was doing…how come you weren’t learning instead of watching him. Sounds like bitul Torah.
And certainly you should be dan him l’kaf zechus.
In fact since he was looking in the sefer and you were watching him, he was probably learning more than you were.
Chas v’chalilah it’s assur…completely assur. Rabbonim have spoken out against going to ball games for the last 500 years. I’m surprised you haven’t seen it in the Shailos u’teshuvos of the early acharonim. Do some research before asking such questions.

No difference between wine and grape juice at all!April 5, 2012 6:16 pm at 6:16 pm in reply to: Problem Being Unable to Consume Much Alcohol – And Can't Get Drunk #866380
“Red wine is most hudor for the Seder. Any wine is better than grape juice”
So Shein is it safe to say you are iber poskening Rav Shlomo Zalman ZT”L?April 5, 2012 5:01 pm at 5:01 pm in reply to: Problem Being Unable to Consume Much Alcohol – And Can't Get Drunk #866377
RSZA says in Halichos Shlomo ( dont have exact citation at the moment) that grape juice is fine for the arba kosos.
People pay upwards of 250 dollars or more for a lemon every year in the fall and it is chalked up to hiddur mitzvah.
The overwhelming majority don’t pay anywhere near $250 for a “lemon” But must pay that for their families “flour and water”
women don’t reequire a “lemon” but must partake of “flour and water”. One can use a matana al m’nas l’hachzir with a “lemon” but can’t do that w/ “flour and water”

My 2 favorite teams are the Cubs and whoever is playing the White Sox!
I second that Goq. Go Cubs!!!
1) will treif up a non-gebrochts keili.
This is definitely not universal and the language borders on bal-tosif. Tzitz Eliezer in chelek 12 53:2 poskens that one doesn’t have to use separate keilim.
1) will treif up a non-gebrochts keili.
oops i meant 2) how do “non gebroks” people dipping their korech in charoses to mekayaim the 2nd dipping?
1) Is it bad form for someone who eats gebroks and is a guest at a non gebroks host to dip hid matza in soup?
2) how do gebroks people dip their korech in charoses to mekayaim the 2nd dipping?
Halacha is plain and clear about shabbos + yom tov, we do not say sholom aleichem nor eishes chayil. IIRC we do say the last part of Modeh Ani.
Where in Halacha is reciting Shalom Aleichem and Aishes Chayil on Shabbos and Yom Tov mentioned let alone being “plain and clear?” Please give sources.

I’m asking about all facets of the Cherem. Marrying 2 wives and opening letters. What is earliest source material?
I tried but I kept mixing up Haman and Mordichai.
You were M’kayem a d’lo yada. 🙂March 9, 2012 4:53 pm at 4:53 pm in reply to: Sephardim, Marriage, Gittin, and Cherem Rabbeinu Gershom #901456
What is the earliest source (sefer) that tells us of Cherem d’Rabbeinu Gershom? Any Ideas?
Not sure about ayin hara, but it sure is irritating!
I see no reason Sam2 should need a source for that, sounds pretty simple – a drink is a drink (water being the exception).
What about week tea? Crystal Light is merely flavored water as is tea. Would tea qualify? Just asking?
Who cares what “they say”?March 1, 2012 7:07 pm at 7:07 pm in reply to: can anyone remember which thread spoke about mezuman for women? #856858
That’s the wrong way about it. We don’t first decide what we want to do, and then go researching for sources to support what you want to do.
Though this is precisely what those who want to get drunk on Purim do.
What do you mean by “times that i need to be besimcha”?
How often is that?
I think he means shabbos, yom tov and any day that end in “y” 🙂
I attend shiurim of Rabbonim and Poskim. The opinions I stated are not mine.
Then quote your rabbanim and teachers. You quoted a vague and ambiguous B”H and stated “not yotze”…just sayin’.

I agree with you 100% on everything you stated. Couldn’t have said it better myself.
