B”H doesn’t say one isn’t yotzei. He says “Nachon L’Hezaher Lchatchila”. Also that’s talking about a trivial shalach manos to an ashir. There is no definition of “davar pachus” nor “ashir”.
But you posken he isn’t yotze vadai.
Cherrybim- For the actual mitzva of shaloch manos, the recipient must feel good about it. In other words, you are not yotze if you give a niggardly shaloch manos to a choshuv or wealthy person because he expects better.
Can you give sources please. As i understand, whether you appreciate or not…the giver is yotze the mitzva.
yitayningwut, you can recycle all you want, but don’t give it to me for your mitzva because you would not be yotze.
Why wouldn’t he be yotze?
And another American Mishugas is the amount of people who learn Torah. In Europe, the men knew a little bit of Ein Yaakov, and the women some Tzena Urena.
And the women don’t even know tzena urena anymore!
And really the men don’t know Ein yaakov unless it’s an Artscroll.

Wolf- Note: My parents weren’t frum when the divorce proceeding started, so naturally they went to secular court. During the process, my mother and I became frum. When the judge asked to speak to me, I was already frum by that point. I suppose I should have refused to go, been convicted of contempt of court and been sent to juvenile detention.
When one his married civilly, besides the religious ceremony, then the parties MUST go to civil court to disolve the civil marriage. Dina d’malchusa dina.

We have arvus..we(each one of us) are responsible for every other Yid. When they do an aveirah, HKB”H asks us why. what did we do to bring them to Torah and Mitzvos. We are all obligated to do kiruv. No yid can be written off. Even though that would be the easiest thing, but L’fum tzara agra.We may not be able to accomplish the kiruv with certain people. that is sad. We have to feel bad about that.
1 of my favorite beverages s ginger kale.
He calls these minhagim “old wive’s tales”. He hardly refer’s to them as valid. They are minhagim that’s it.
And may we not be price gouged by am’cha Bais yisroel for Arba minim on Sukkos or matza on Pesach. Amen ken yehi ratzon!
“As for havdalah, even the litvish are more lenient – beer is perfectly acceptable for that (though again, I have never seen anyone make havdalah on any amount of whiskey).”
Interesting! Shabbos morning kiddush is derabbonon and therefore would be easier to be meikel. Havdalla is d’oraissa and one should be more machmir.
Boy i know I’m gonna get it for this but..methinks klal Yisroel has bigger problems than those that follow the Taz and make Shabbos morning kiddush on whiskey. Whether chasid or litvak.
People who drink whiskey rely on the Taz in O.C. siman 210. His shita is halachicly reliable and in fact is not contradicted by the MB. Stop this silliness. The shita is NOT neged halacha!
You have your work cut out for you!
yes SB is bitul zman. Unlike those posting in CR against the SB & YU who are doing avodas haKodesh.
I feel quite fortunate. I enjoy football and get a geshhmak from watching the Super Bowl.
One cannot learn Tanach properly witout learning it w/ meforshim that are based on Torah shebaal peh. Many pesukim translated by non-yirei shamayaim will result in garbage in-garbage out.
Here is david hamelech’s source. see bottom of page.
Sam2– I wasn’t arguing that the words aren’t Hebrew. Only that there is a basis to the babylonian names for the months that precludes us from going back to their original names. The babylonian names were good enough for the Anshei K’nesses Hag’dolah it’s good enough for me.
As is Adar.
chodesh Teves is mentioned in Esther.
Also left out the Krummer Rebbe, the Treifer Rebbe, the Chazzer Rebbe and the mishuginer Rebbe. Very choshuve dynasties.
Popa-Gimmee a break. You just looked up a list of eastern european towns and copied and pasted. Most of those towns never had a Jew besides the “Moshke.”
I don’t think Cleveland, Toldos Tzvi,Chabad, etc. are towns in Eastern Europe. Just sayin’
Please we don’t need to be mekatreg our bretheran. That is Sotan’s job!
Gedolim aren’t neviim. If a gadol advised a yid to stay in Europe, the gadol felt that is what was best for the person. Actually it probably was the best thing. Going to America for the most part was a ticket to chillul Shabbos and a life of hefkarus. Yes, Europe meant almost certain death, but with olam haba.
OOps I meant Enunas Chachomim.
I think people are mixing up the concepts of daas Torah and Emunas Chachoming.
Enough already…One Goal’s superb middos are completely due to my wonderful influence on him!
Yehuda Tzvi- If women have a chiyuv to bentsch then why not to make a mezuman?
With that logic if women have a chiyuv to daven then why not make a minyan?
ItcheSrulik-Anyone know what ????”? stands for? It was on the Ezras Torah luach.
I think the letters may be mixed up. If you mean samech zayin kuf”lamed…that would be sof zman kiddush levana.
Maybe you should concentrate more on your davening and less on other men’s talleisim. Just saying.
WIY- How pat and convenient. That totally takes us and our responsibility out of the picture. We can improve in many areas and we have to and we have to stop waiting for our Rabbanim to do this and say that and the other. Just take a good hard stare in the mirror and decide enough is enough!
I never said that each Yid shouldn’t take responsibility for his actions. But,I am not taking on myself to Poseach Pi L’satan mekatreg Klal Yisroel.
“in terms of our tachlis as The Jewish Nation, as a whole, (in spite of the wondrous Baal Teshuvah spirit, and a small kernel of Yidden) we are presently the worst we have ever been since Matan Torah”
I prefer to think of it as the the yetzer hara is the doing his job BEST since matan Torah.January 19, 2012 11:43 pm at 11:43 pm in reply to: Can a candidate with an immoral past be president? #845091
BT Guy-Oh, I left someone out.Thomas Jefferson.
You also left out JFK & LBJ and FDR there is enough documentation that these three were not faithful to their wives.
Zionism is not diiferent than any other “Ism” (Communism, Evolutionism, Capitalism, Charadism, MOism, etc.) that takes one away from the goal of Avodas Hashem and Kiddush Shem Shomayim.
You left out Juda-ism.
So happy he is acclimating to his new surroundings. HKB’H should continue giving him hatzlach in his learning.
Syag, How is One goal doing? I expect reguar updates 🙂
I cannot answer if it is considered “normal” for a kollel guy to play games, but I would assume that most don’t.
And the kollel guys that do play probably won’t ask their Rosh kollel if it’s ok. 🙂
“Soccer (or any other type of ball playing). Real Charaidi Neigborhoods (such as Beitar) do not have any ball playing.”
It gets in the way of hafgana practice.
“What does phony mean? Why would someone collect if they don’t need money?”
It’s easier than getting a legit job and it’s tax-free money.
I’ve always wanted to(but never did it) Save a box from Shmura Matza and put a pizza in it for shaloch Monus. And of course a wine bottle with beer in it.
Mostly Music sells singles.
“Some Gedolim Banned people from coming to America calling it a traif medina.
If my great-grandparents had listend. I would not be here “
Even more so many who listened to rabbonim not to go to America, the treife medina, were murdered in the Shoah. How does that shtim w/ daas Torah? Anyone?
I prefer a blue one with a red “C” on the front.
Is it spelled Kwanzaa or Chwanzaa or Hwanzaa? 🙂
You guys are the best!!! Wishing 2 much hatzlacha in his learning in E”Y. 1 must be so excited to have 2 nearby again.
Oh Syag I am blushing. I think the birthday wishes were meant for me. Thanks so much. I took my birthday off from the CR, so i didn’t see the post. You must remember my b-day cuz it’s the day after your bro’s.
Oops…that was a bad mistake. Anyway, I am so excited for you. Learning In E.Y. I never got that opportunity. So shteig!
WOW, Now I know who One Goal is. He/she had me fooled. I had no idea. Well, hatzlach Rabba. When you become a great rosh yeshiva can i tell people i knew you when you were 6 and that you were a..gasp…White Sox fan. Ok..there I said it. Oy….
