    “Which would make him a Ba’al Davar, and a pasul Dayan.”

    Rag Feivel never said he was a dayan. He said this is a matter for Beis Din.

    He was asked a shailah as to what would be proper. That is exactly what he responded to.

    You seem to be somewhat confused about the meaning of certain titles throughout this whole discussion.

    “Sure, my question is why does Rabbi Cohen have jurisdiction in Lakewood “

    Rav Feivel Cohen is a most certainly a “Senior” Posek. R Elyashiv used to refer shailos in America to him. And he lives in Lakewood.

    And apparently what he said is that this is a matter for a Beis Din.

    I don’t think he said what the Beis Din should pasken.

    I am guessing Rav Feivel was asked by people who live in Pine River Village, which is right across from the proposed mall and is also where Rav Feivel lives.

    The Rockland Jewish Federation and the Rockland Board of Rabbi’s both protested the article. Neither is in anyway affiliated with the Orthodox community in Rockland to put it mildly.

    That should tell you something about the articles.

    And that should shed some light on the commenters who feel there was nothing wrong with the articles in the Urinal news.

    LC,

    Her concerns were that they are building this mall almost immediately opposite where she lives.

    I will acknowledge that I did not listen to every word that the woman said. But I do know what the sentiments and frustrations of the people who live in that area are.

    SO yes, she is worried about a mall opening across the street from her and that will result in her grandkids “playing” in the mall “parking” lot. Which will extend to the front of her house because of all the resulting congestion.

    GAW,

    I do mind, because I do not know if she does want her name included here.

    And I can say I wouldn’t blame her.

    LC,

    The issue is that right in the middle of a very congested area there are plans to develop a huge mall (50 acres, with almost 900 parking slots. 13 large stores). The infra structure cannot support so much additional traffic. It is not just off a major highway. It is off of two lane through streets. Or something like CIA for Cedarbridge.

    The original plan was for corporate buildings, which would not generate nearly the same volume of traffic.

    It appears that according to a certain poster here, that because he peruses the internet all day, the lessons taught to us by Chazal, about what we have to understand from tragedies, do not apply any more. The internet has made Chazal no longer applicable.

    And that one who follows the words of Koheles, (7, 20) is following a Christian Ideology.

    Expanding on Avram in MD’s post, if one feel drawn to search Google for natural disasters and tragedies, the appropriate response to becoming aware of these events would be take them to heart and have at a minimum a hirhur of teshuva.

    It should not , C’V, be used as reason to say “these are regularly occurring, thus it is clear that Hashem does not send messages to Klal Yisroel”

    I do not profess to know why certain occurrences happen, however, a hirhur of teshuva is certainly appropriate for everyone, as it says “Ein Tzadik Bo’oretz Asher Yaseh Tov V’loh Yechtah.”

    Or, perhaps you were just reaffirming what I was saying, that we have become desensitized to these messages and now we get instantaneous messages of tragedies within our own communities?

    But you are saying that these are everyday occurrences, and not messages! What type of messages do you want us to get? They are unfortunately messages arlready that tear at the hearts of normal feeling Jews. Oy how much harsher messages do you want us to get?

    The Chofetz Chaim said about a earthquake in Asia, that it is a chisaron in emunah not to understand that this is a message for Klal Yisroel.

    Apparently in this generation we are not getting the message and thus we have to get the instantaneous messages from anywhere in the world about tragedies that we can identify with, in order to get a message.

    And these are tragedies because times have changes and these terrible occurrences are out of the realm of our regular thinking.

    The big minyan factories in Monsey are Vishnitz and Skver, although I think Satmar has one as well.

    New Square is not in Monsey. So if the OP wants or needs specifically Monsey then it’s Viznitz or Satmar in “old” Monsey. And as Efraim said Ohr Hachaim in Forshay.

    Do you know that “suspect” is different from “assume”? I wouldn’t assume that you do.

    The Mods talk more about accepting a psak. Such as saying that striving to reach one’s tafkid (yes I am paraphrasing) can lead to issurim and is wrong.

    Chatzos will vary significantly across the whole time zone. But in any place it will not change significantly.

    But noon changes by every time zone by an hour.

    Your issue was that someone could not be consistent with “noon’ in a specific area, because you were considered about a train schedule. Which would be a specific place.

    The difference in “noon” or, actually, Chatzos only fluctuates by a few minutes throughout the year.

    Defining noon is not an issue.

    All this focus on trains and their schedules is odd, to say the least.

    Most people who are learning, live local to where they learn and thus the commute time is less of a burden.

    And I know that ZD is under the impression that learning people are not serious about their time, but I know that where I daven there are number of Kollel yungeliet who learn with working people every morning and they are learning from 5:30 am. And those same yungerliet have full day sedorim and learn to 10 oclock every night, even missing family simchas not to miss sedorim. And they will show up at 6 M on Friday after finishing a Thursday night mishmar at 1AM.

    That is beaides a seperate Kollel that learns in the same location which starts davening at 7:15 and stays straight to the end of afternoon Seder.

    The hours are longer than almost any working person I know.

    And it is even on Sundays.

    Having a course. seminar, sermon on ethics is not sign of a lack of ethics. Quite the contrary, those who are concerned with ethics are those who have classes, sermons, seminars and courses about ethics.

    CPA’s, Lawyers, Doctors and many others are required to obtain credits regularly in ethics as a condition to licensure. Is that a sign of a LACK of ethics? (This is for the DdM crowd)

    I assume you would refer to Rav Chatzkel or even R Yisroel Salanter as lacking in ethics since they constantly studied mussar (yes that’s ethics).

    Quite the contrary, it is those who are against public lectures about ethics who are likely lacking in ethics.
