Why? Are wealthy people better at shidduchim? Or do you think they have more free time? Or do you just have a grudge against that entire segment of the community?
L’ Hadar Kevodo (sorry; couldn’t resist)
HaKatan: What’s your source for ” Rabbi JB Soloveichik created Modern Orthodoxy to institutionalize compromise of the Torah seemingly based on what he felt (against the gedolim of the time) was necessary for then-modern America, and on his mistaken assumption that traditional Orthodoxy would become a museum piece.”?
If the winning ticket was bought last Thursday afternoon in xyz store, and that is common knowledge, I’d venture that most of the people who bought tickets there that afternoon have already looked at their tickets. I don’t know the amount of tickets sold that afternoon, but if it was, say, 100, and 97 of the people checked and weren’t winners, your odds of winning are very high. So don’t sell.

Should you leave 911 for urgent emergencies and call 311 or something for downed wires etc.?
Huh? I picked 13. What about 15, 17, 19, 31, 35, 39 ?
You should check out the Columbia University seal. What do you think of that?
Ralph Lauren’s Romance seems to be still in stock at amazon. Perhaps you should stock up.
health- “lifnei michshol”? Do you mean “lifnei iver”?
you should consider flying to Buffalo, and driving to Toronto from there. You can rent a car. Flights run from 330.January 17, 2012 10:37 pm at 10:37 pm in reply to: Frustrated Mothers of Girls: Can we hear your ideas #845546
What do you think of this?
Let the boys, who will be learning their whole lives, start dating at 18 (ben shmonah esrei lechuppah), and the girls, who will be supporting their large families and don’t have the obligation to marry early, get good serious graduate degrees and be earning decent parnassahs (maybe already owning homes) before they start dating. That would take them to late 20’s. Then the girls (sorry- women) would with Hashem’s help be able to pay their children’s tuitions, etc., and the boys could sit and learn with yishuv hadaas.
Measure twice, cut once.
(The underground railway line is dangerous. If the train stops between stations, stay inside. Do not go outside. Follow the instructions of the train operators or the police.)

miritchka: “working before getting a degree” in MEDICINE?
maybe if you explain to your boss what you explained to us, they will let you work for a while and show your diploma in a few months, after you have paid the tuition.
I’ll take a wild guess: They escorted the chatan to shul for his aufruf that morning and got a little overheated. So they loosened their ties, and opened their collars. Loosening the tie pulls up the ends (remember this is a guess), and if they loosened the knot that would make it look fuller.
guess number two: Someone in their crowd heard that a full Windsor knot is more formal. So they all decided to wear it. Now, by it’s nature this knot uses more material in the knot, so less is left for the ends. Hence, the short-looking ties. Also, a full windsor should have a spread collar shirt, and since the guys didn’t have one, they opened their collars to accomodate the wider knot. They also wore their loudest ties to show off their knots.
I might as well bring up the point that I think some people don’t hold by this kind of knot on Shabbos, considering it more of a permanent knot.
Old man: Great post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just remember that cupcakes bake faster than cakes so cut the baking time. Usually about 20-25 minutes does it but check for doneness.
This is just a guess, as I don’t know you, but I vote clothing design or fabric design (for clothes or home furnishings). Consider studying at FIT or Parsons.
OP: I’ll take a stab at it:
BMG-Beth Medrash Gevoha, Lakewood’s premier yeshiva
UIC-University of Illinois at Chicago
MUOhio- Miami University in Ohio
UWM- University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee
(with thanks to google, and ignorance of what these schools ar like)
Hacham: sure you need an excuse. It’s a mitzva.
Thanks to midwesterner for answering abe so well. I hear OOTers are more likely to make aliya, not less.

Don’t worry about it, it only adds to your charm.
Itche-Court dress?August 22, 2011 12:38 am at 12:38 am in reply to: If Im the ony one to give complete down payment to children… #800726
It looks to me like OP really would prefer to make the down payment a loan rather than a gift. That way you can get it back and do with the money as you wish. If you need security, why not look into putting a second mortgage on the property.
half-sister? step-sister? cousin-by-marriage?
also, the date July 19th wasn’t any special date, so it’s really stretching it to already say it was 1/365 chance of Paul being born on that day ( it is 1/365, but it’s also 1/365 for any day he would be born, and 100% that he would be born on a day). Note that in any random group of 23 people, there’s a 50% chance that two people will share a birthday, a statistic that jumps to 99% with 57 people, and of course 100% with 366 people. see, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birthday_problem

thanks for not yelling cool.
Are your kids old enough to bathe without an adult? If not, isn’t it dangerous to leave them to answer the door?
My family and I love the oreo cookie cheesecake. We wait all year for it.
bezalel’s quote is from the scarecrow in the wizard of oz, for those who missed it. And it’s totally wrong. The Pythagorean Theorem states: the sum of the SQUARES of the LEGS of a RIGHT triangle is equal to the SQUARE of the HYPOTENUSE.
Rav Wein quotes Rav Kahaneman, “Rabbi
Yosef Kahaneman, the Ponevezher Rav, told me that he flew
the Israeli flag from the roof of his yeshivah building in Bnei
locals complained about this, he
answered them with the following: ‘I
flew the Lithuanian flag on the roof of
my yeshivah in Ponevezh on Lithuanian
Independence Day. My friends, it is no
worse here.'” http://www.ou.org/pdf/ja/5767/summer67/30_32_33.pdf
Mr. 80: What is that all about? You’re against the State of Israel because they WHAT????? “push for the murdering of babies” ??? This has to be some anti-semitic blood libel I haven’t yet heard of.
adorable, do you also have a name for affection?
Thanks for the advice SJS. They have a depot where we can bring our garbage but I’d still like curbside pickup as its a big chore to lug all the garbage to the depot. But I think I’ll call the mayor. We do have a large Jewish population (about 57% Jewish). But I asked our Ward Councillor, and he said it’s “impossible for both cost and logistical reasons”.
JayMatt19, I have a couple of tips: The lefty scissors make it easier to cut, they’re worth buying when he starts using scissors. If you’re not sure what hand he will be most comfortable catching with when playing baseball, try out both kinds of mitts before buying. And if there is any question about which hand he should lay tefillin on, ask a shailah early. There are people who are lefties for some things and righties for other things.
The Rimon Inn is great.
What is the shiur called? I’d love to hear it.
Moderator: The double negative in the title makes no sense. Perhaps you would like to edit it?
correct. double negatives are a big no-no
I don’t have personal knowledge of him, but I’ve heard that people in Toronto recommend Mendel Green, of Green and Spiegel.
Of course, if he logged in on one clock and logged out on another, it would be theft, not owning false scales. Here, I’m only talking about owning false scales.
How could it come to theft? One could be talking on their portable phone and say, “oh, it’s four o’clock” without remembering that the clock is wrong. Or one could take a call in one room and walk around talking, then think they were on for forty-five minutes when it was only a half-hour.
