Can someone please clarrify? Is it true that once you write Tenoyim during the engagement, one cannot break the shidduch and must wait till after marriage?
Is that why Chassidim are makpid on Tenoyim?
Presented before you are two letters between an employee and his boss.
Dear Bo$$, A$ all of u$ have red from the new$paper$, the $ingapore economy ha$ come out of the rece$$ion. In thi$ life, we all need $ome thing mo$t de$perately. I think you $hould be under$tanding of the need$ of u$ worker$ who have given $o much $upport including $weat and $ervice to your company. I am $ure you will gue$$ what I mean and re$pond $oon.
I kNOw you have been working very hard. NOw a days, NOthing much has changed. You must have NOticed that our company is NOt doing NOticeably well as yet.
NOw the newspaper are saying the world’s leading ecoNOmists are NOt sure if the United States may go into aNOther recession. After the NOvember presidential elections things may turn bad.
I have NOthing more to add NOw. You kNOw what I mean.
I have edited the title / introduction and removed the contact information at the end of the letter. Although the letter appears to be authentic, it was wrongly attributed to someone (a fourth grade teacher) who forwarded the email to others.
LETTER FROM SOMEONE TO PRESIDENT OBAMA
WOW!!! This person should run for President!! She is right on the
money, and she’s not afraid to take credit for it either!! she left
her name and phone number at the end!
This letter you are about to read was written by a 4th grade teacher
this past week. She even gave the world her telephone and fax numbers.
We are in dire need of more true American citizens who are proud of
OUR United States of America . WAKE UP AMERICA . . . please . . .

I have had it with you and your administration, sir. Your conduct on your recent trip overseas has convinced me that you are not an adequate representative of the United States of America collectively or of me personally.
You are so obsessed with appeasing the Europeans and the Muslim world that you have abdicated the responsibilities of the President of the United States of America . You are responsible to the citizens of the United States . You are not responsible to the peoples of any other country on earth. I personally resent that you go around the world apologizing
for the United States telling Europeans that we are arrogant and do not care about their status in the world. Sir, what do you think the First World War and the Second World War were all about if not the consideration of the peoples of Europe ? Are you brain dead ? What do you think the Marshall Plan was all about?
Do you not understand or know the history of the 20th century? Where do you get off telling a Muslim country that the United States does not consider itself a Christian country? Have you not read the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States ?
This country was founded on Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles governing this country, at least until you came along, come directly from this heritage. Do you not understand this?
Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is an affront to all Americans. Our President does not bow down to anyone, let alone the king of Saudi Arabia . You don’t show Great Britain , our best and one of our oldest allies, the respect they deserve yet you bow down to the king of Saudi Arabia . How dare you, sir! How dare you!
You can’t find the time to visit the graves of our greatest generation because you don’t want to offend the Germans but make time to visit a mosque in Turkey . You offended our dead and every veteran when you
give the Germans more respect than the people who saved the German people from themselves. What’s the matter with you?
I am convinced that you and the members of your administration have the historical and intellectual depth of a mud puddle and should be ashamed of yourselves, all of you. You are so self-righteously offended by the big bankers and the American automobile manufacturers yet do nothing about the real thieves in this situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr.
Frank, Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelic, the Fannie Mae bonuses, and the Freddie Mac bonuses. What do you intend to do about them? Anything? I seriously doubt it.
What about the U.S. House members passing out $9.1 million in bonuses to their staff members – on top of the $2.5 million in automatic pay raises that lawmakers gave themselves? I understand the average House aide got a 17% bonus. I took a 5% cut in my pay to save jobs with my employer. You haven’t said anything about that. Who authorized that? I surely didn’t! Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be receiving $210 million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period, that’s $45 million more than the AIG bonuses. In fact, Fannie and Freddie executives have already been awarded $51 million – not a bad take. Who authorized that and why haven’t you expressed your outrage at this
group who are largely responsible for the economic mess we have right now.
I resent that you take me and my fellow citizens as brain-dead and not caring about what you idiots do. We are watching what you are doing and we are getting increasingly fed up with all of you. I also want you to know that I personally find just about everything you do and say to be offensive to every one of my sensibilities. I promise
you that I wil l work tirelessly to see that you do not get a chance to spend two terms destroying my beautiful country.June 12, 2009 4:47 am at 4:47 am in reply to: Tel Aviv search for mattress containing $1M life savings #647947
Just wondering if anyone found it!
I can only try;
Thanks, sounds yum.
Can you be more specific about details? What type of fruit, etc….
Imagine how Chassidim are shvitzing in their garb in 90 degrees. I remember in the Swiss Alps during August, the Vishnitzer Rebbe used to visit with his Chassidim every Summer.
Now the Swiss are not famouf or their sympathy to Jews and all the men were decked out in their Chassidish garb and very proud of it!
For Maternity clothes:
Come see our fabulous collection when looking good is TWICE as important;-)
I like what Shindy wrote:
The obvious fact is that money cant always buy what we need or want, as the following parable will prove:
There were two families in a town both named Klein. One was a very wealthy entrepeneur who did the finest shidduchim with his children and provided them with the best money could buy.
The other was a poor man who always was struggling for Parnosoh(lets call him Yankel).
The town always provided for him so he can offer dowrys for his daughters to marry.
One day, the wealthy man’s wife took very ill. She was constantly in the hospital undergoing treatment and suffered a lot of pain. As her husband once left the hospital, someone approached him and asked his name. He answered’Klein’. Assuming that
people with problems always have more, the man asked ‘are you Yankel Klein?’
to which he quickly responded, ‘Leider nisht'(unfortunatley not)
When the Klausenberger Rebbe ZYA, was liberated from Aushwitz, he was asked what they could do for him.
After losing his wife and 11 children to the NAZIS Y’SH,
this great Tzaddik requested Kosher food for the survivors and a car to take the bodies in order for them to get a proper Kevurah.
They say too much of ANYTHING is no good!
The only thing I can think of which one cant get enough of is,,,,,,MAZEL!
Thats what I wish for, AN ABUNDANCE OF MAZEL!
What about uncomon names?
Interestingly enough, I know a family named Ungarisher of Polish descent.
And the name POLLAK happens to be common amongst Hungarians, funny isnt it?
‘Whatever his name, yidden have been slaughtered and buthchered in that name for more than 2000 years. Do we have to talk about him? ‘
HE was the excuse, not the REASON!
Thank you Joseph;)
One more question, does the Gemorroh not refer to his mother as a woman of ill repute? If so, he would have been considered a Mamzer, so why was he accepted as a disciple? He in fact should not be accepted amongst Klaal Yisroel,,,,
Also, what is the story with ‘him’ and someone ben prachia?
Does anyone know the last name of the Rebbe Reb Elimelech?
Cantor Yaakov STARK and Shloime SIMCHA

,,when you notice that Joseph hasn’t commented!
It nice to be important but its MORE important to be nice!
What you are,is G-d’s gift to you. What you MAKE OF YOURSELF is YOUR GIFT TO G-D.
I guesse because its neutral! I dont claim to ‘know it all’ nor do I think I should be the one to decide that some posters should ‘havemoreseichel’etc,,,,
I want to remain modest, and I’m proud of that! lol!
What do you mean a girl is not allowed to learn Torah Shel BAAL Peh?
One is not permitted to learn Torah Shebichsav WITHOUT Baal Peh.
So how do you explain girls who learn Limudei koidesh in school without learning both?
I have a friend who told me that whenever they speak a shidduch for her son, she checks to see if the girl is on facebook. If she is, she WONT GO INTO IT!October 7, 2008 11:05 am at 11:05 am in reply to: Yom Kippur/ Tisha Bav Warning! (no mussar enclosed) #897606
They say to drink water with lemon juice before the fast. Apparantly the lemon keeps the fluid in the body for a long period of time.
The only verification I can give you is that the Rav who told the story was Rav Unsdorfer Shmuel Alexander Unsdorfer ZATZAL, former RBD in Petach Tikvah. He told this story when he still lived in Canada years earlier. Apparantly, he heard it form the gentleman on the bus . There cannot be any confirmation unfortunately because the Rav was niftar a few years ago.
Sorry, I cant be of further help besides standing by the integrity of this former Torah Giant
and father in law of the current Sanzer Rav in Natanya.
Thanks for the advice. However, I assume that during this delicate time, people will think before they mouth off anything which borders on heresy.

Very well said! However, if the Gedolim make these takonos and STILL attend weddings even if those takonos are not implemented, doenst that send mixed signals and confuse people?
Many Xtians have been responsible for persecuting us in the name of their G-d, J, a crime WE never comitted and one that happneed over 2000 years ago!
If they want to continue spilling our blood for SO many generations in revenge for something that happened eons ago, we can refrain from supporting Germany 60 years later!September 11, 2008 6:13 pm at 6:13 pm in reply to: Scene at OíHare Airport in Chicago This Past Sunday Afternoon #621995
What happens at the ‘Beteken’ before the chupah? Doesnt the father bentch the daughter in PUBLIC,?
Furthermore, how do you know he LITERALLY puts his hand on her, maybe his hands are slightly raised,,,,,September 11, 2008 5:51 pm at 5:51 pm in reply to: Scene at OíHare Airport in Chicago This Past Sunday Afternoon #621993
Wow! My emotions are running high and my keyboard is getting soaked.
I witnessed something like that a few years ago at JFK airport in NY. It was the most beautiful scene watching father’s bentch their Yeshiva Bochurim and encouraging them to ‘shteig’ as they leave for their journey to EY. It happened to have been a time when there was alot of tension in the Middle East which made the circumstances even more touching.
We truly are a great nation! We prove time and time again that we dont fear anyone or anything besides the Almighty.

Here’s MY question:
If leider’s message is so weak and baseless, why are people commenting with pseudonyms? If everyone is so sincere, why not just post with your real names?
‘She said a learning boy is better for HER!’
I know what she SAID. But it doesnt take a genius to read between the lines ,,,,,
For every ONE story like this on the part of a Jew , there are about 1000 disgraceful incidents (even more reprehensible than this story) amongst Goyim.
that those boys are in YESHIVA cause they want to be?
Does that sound like someone who is ‘INADVERTENTLY’conveying a tone?
Did it ever occur to her that those boys are in Yshiv
‘Lets call a spade, a spade.’
You want to tell me that Hispanics are tidier than Jews? Please, they probably assumed that for them English would be sufficient,,,
On another thread, you accused me of ‘nasty generalization’,
What is your last post if not PURE, CUT AND DRY stereotyping?
Well Itzik, I’ll have to disagree!
Not every boy is cut out for learning! They do their best and if they NEED the Parnosoh, working is the only solution. The Bochurim who are planning to learn indefintly or even long term, are looking for very specific type of girls as I mentioned in my previous post. It might not be fair but its a fact.
The writer seems to be judging those boys who are interested in a profession quite harshly. I suggest you read the post again. Besides, if aboy is mikayem the mtsvah of ‘koveah B’eitim aside from being an intellectual, he can be just as worthy . The Rambam was a doctor, remember?
‘Itching to be out of the yam shel torah, wanting that moment harder than kriyas yam suf to happen so that ‘
Hmm, pretty nasty generalization for a girl who wants to find a true Ben Torah. Well I have news for you my dear. The type of boy you want is looking for a ‘yam shel kesef’if not aprominent yichus. If you got more to offer than just the will to support a husband who will learn, then you have a good chance. Otherwise, you’d just have to luck out.
For now I suggest that you judge every boy lecaff zechus, whether he wants to study or not. Please dont assume just because he’s out for a career , he’s superficial.
Good luck to you
Why A cholent?
I make a delicious, creamy, appetizing, barley soup(gershten soup)
a bit of oil,
a whole onion,
2 garlic cloves,
2 turkey bones, or chicken quarter
In are REGULAR pot;
Saute all of that for a few minutes, then add a cup barley and a few cups water to cover the mixture, Let it cook for about 2 hours, taste to test, then put on blech before shabbos,
ABSOLUTLEY DELIGHTFUL !
The point is to feel that your spouse is A LOT MORE AMAZING now after years of marriage than she/he was whe you were dating. If you dont feel that, than its just as sad .
As far as the ‘surprises’ are concerned, they are certainly not evident while dating.
These are normally faults which you accept because at this point, your happy all around. But it IS possible that had these faults been obvious at the beginning, one might have terminated the relationship, so SQUEAK makes agood point!
Cantoresque AND whoever else want to join hands with this ‘charming’ team,
If you feel you can improve in your standards of cleanliness , speak for yourselves and DONT lump in the rest of us!
The reason those signs were included in Yiddish is simply because they want Chassidim to understand the rules, not because they think the message applies to them more than to others!!
Thanks for the compliment, but can you please tell me the ‘valid’ point which were rasied in this tacky post? To me, its shocking enough if ONE individual scribbles up such bogus drivel, now I notice, its a COUPLE!!!!
It happens to be that we had rented a car this summer wher a goy had driven it previously. The guy at the rental said it was returned a total fiasco and that we would never believe how it looked before. There were peanut shells all over the place, burnt out cigarettes etc. The car stunk to high heaven.
Ofcourse we are responsible to keep every thing in order, but its not a Jewish sickness a t all, its individual.
Your post and your TITLE is nothing short of unconstructive LH. If you wanted to make this point(which is relevant to all) you should have done so WITHOUT labelling Jews the way you did!
I think the headline of this topic is very inappropriate!
FYI,GOYIM can be just as untidy and disheavled. This is aquestion of education, not religion or denomination!
One thing is unfortunately true.
When there is MONEY then;
1,A broken home, suddenly is not so ‘broken’
2,If there is a
prob in the family that would normally be an issue, becomes LESS of an issue
3,A parent who was once shady in business or in other areas, is not so bad.
HOWEVER , these cases are more carefully taken into account EVEN if the father is a TCH or an ASKAN or a Miyuchas.
Why is that ?????
Its MRS; Nameless FIRST OF ALL,
Secondly,lets scratch 5 and assume that its a great girl in any case, what would be the next priority of the 4 choices?
I understand that but the point I wanted to make is that if an individula like that is entitled to zechusim, that can affect his children as well and will be an appealing criteria for a
