The concept bothers me; it seems too close to the issur of owning incorrect scales (especially for people who charge money for their time).
What we really need are shidduchim. I understand you’re good at them; most people aren’t. How about coming up with an innovative way to redt them? Some thoughts are: online, computerized, maybe get people together with a cup of coffee in the coffee room, etc.
Seriously, if you’re looking for a need in this market, shidduchs is it. ( Unless you can lower tuitions, help with parnassah, or get people’s children into yeshivas and sems of their choice).
Who’s to be paying for this? Am I to assume the shul membership as a whole?
Hi, I’m sort of starting another issue about BYs. Does anyone have any idea why some BYs put on plays, and why the plays are considered such major productions? Shouldn’t the girls be spending their time learning Torah, or household skills, or how to make a living, or getting healthy exercise?
Aren’t plays from the goyim? What’s the hashkafa here? We should tell our girls watching movies aren’t for them, but its okay to spend countless hours on producing and acting in plays? Anyone get it?
There is a store “Laura” that has a large petite section. I think they also have a fair amount of tzniusdik clothes.
I also wonder whether anyone has any halachik opinions about women learning the laws, le’havdil alfei havdalos, of other nations? Any problems with that aside from the shidduch issues that started this thread? Like women lawyers, you know.
“”Women learning” ended up being a Machlokes between most Chassidim and Rabbi Miller in one corner, and Rav Kotler and most Litvish Rabbonim in the other. (that is an opinion, not fact)”
Which side allowed, and which side forbade it?
Also note that squeak, moq and popa believed it, as did I.
help for helpful-
“. However, not all lawyers want to make partner in a top tier firm. I work in a small to mid-size firm and my main focus is Tax Certiorari, it is a rare occurrence when I get home after 7.
I also find it interesting that your legal training has spilled over into your every day life. People are usually quite shocked when I tell that what I do, I guess it’s a personality difference. “
“I didnt go into law to open up my own firm. Fine, I want to become a Judge… but thats just because I like the robe ;)”
“Techinically I am not an Esq. since I never took the Bar. Thats my single biggest problem the “what if” what if I move out of NY and then I would have wasted all that time studying for the NY Bar… I think I am what you call a JD equivilent.”
I’m with homeowner on this one. Sacrilege, your words are unquestionably deceptive and your attitude unacceptable. I’m not a long-time frequenter of the coffee-room, so I don’t know what the culture is here in terms of honesty; people use false names but the CR is part of Yeshiva World News so maybe we should expect some truth.
I think Sacrilege should apologize and ‘fess up. What is your position and education?
Also, I have to answer this:”We all have our weak points, maybe carefully going over language is yours…”
Carefully going over language is ONLY a strong point, especially in law.
Sac- just a bit of unasked-for advice from someone who has been there. Consider taking the bar. If you can make the time now, realize that it is easier now than later as you still have the habits and knowledge from school. Also, you may not have as much time as you do now in the future. And if you do move out of New York, it will probably always be useful and helpful to have been admitted to the New York bar.
