    You remind me of a story. Once two litvish Bochurim came to the yeshivah in 770 to get tested for semicha. the rav testing them gave them a much harder time then the Lubavitcher Bochurim. When the litvish bochurim asked why the discrimination? The Rav answered the Lubavitcher Bochurim are getting semicha to fulfil their rebbe’s instructions. you are getting it in case you need to know what to do in this and this case. if the lubavitcher bochur encounters a problem which he learnt about he wont have the yeshus to pasken for himself so he will ask a rav even though he got semicha on it. But if you (the Litvak) get encounter a shaila, you will pasken for yourself (since you don’t have an inyan of getting semicha) and I want to make sure you know it well so you wont make a mistake paskening for yourself.

    (please don’t take this the wrong way😁)

    I always hated when anyone called me a blondie but it doesn’t happen often except when one of my magedei shiur called me a blonde and I just didn’t take it personally.

    Syag, i have no issues with you, quit the contrary, I find it intriguing that you are able to pick up such small details and figure out information from that. Its a talent. (from someone probably 9 years younger then you (: )

    good point syag. you probably know my social security number by now and then you’l realize we dont have social security numbers in New Zealand. Syag, what else (not private) info did you gather about me?

    in reply to: do goyim have bchira chofshis? #2021297

    on point two maybe pharos free was taken away only for thatchoice but for other choices he still had free choice. i.e. maybe on an issue that was unrelated he would not lose his free choice. the reason why his free choice was taken away was not a punishment it was just to make an example of paroh as in this is what happens if you mess with the lord of the isralites.

    Avira based on that do i have a choice what flavored instant soup i have?

    it is important to note that even if a goy is a good goy, you are connecting to to the etzem of a goy wich is not what a yidishe neshomah should be connecting to too,

    in reply to: Baruch Hashem: Obligatory? #2020721


    In his early years, before he went public with his teachings and disciples came from far and wide to learn from him, the founder of the Chassidic movement, Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov, was an incessant traveler.

    Dressed in the clothes of a simple villager, he would travel from town to town and from hamlet to hamlet, asking questions. “How are things?” he would inquire of the water-carrier yoked to his pails, of the market-woman minding her stall, of the child playing in the doorway of his home. “Is there enough to eat? Is everyone healthy?” “Baruch Hashem, blessed be the Almighty, all is fine” or “Thanks to the Almighty, things are improving,” these simple, G‑d-fearing and G‑d-trusting Jews would reply, and the traveler would depart with the gratified step of one who has found what he was seeking.

    One day, Rabbi Israel arrived in a village and made his way to the study hall. There, in a corner, sat an ancient Torah scholar over his books, wrapped in tallit and tefillin. This was the village porush (“ascetic”), who led a life of holy seclusion. From sunrise to sunset, not a morsel of bread or a sip of water would pass his lips; he spoke to no one and never lifted his eyes from the sacred tomes. For more than fifty years he had kept to this regimen, utterly removed from the mundane cares of material life.

    So why was this stranger pestering him? “How are things?,” he was inquiring, “Is there enough to eat? Is everyone healthy?” The ascetic made no reply, hoping the stranger would go away. But the stranger only leaned closer, and his questioning grew more insistent. Impatiently, the ascetic waved him away, pointing him to the door.

    “Rabbi,” the stranger now asked, “why are you denying G‑d His livelihood?”

    The words had their desired effect: the old man was roused to indignant attention. G‑d’s livelihood?! The audacity of this uncouth peasant! “What are you saying?” he demanded in a thunderous voice. “How dare you disturb me with such blasphemous babble!”

    “Only what King David, the sweet singer of Israel, proclaims in his Psalms,” replied the Baal Shem Tov. “Tell me, Rabbi, what is the meaning of the verse , ‘And You, the Holy One, who dwells by the praises of Israel’1? ”

    “We mortal beings,” continued the Baal Shem Tov when the porush made no reply, “subsist on the sustenance that G‑d provides us in His great kindness. But what does G‑d ‘subsist’ on? On the praises of Israel! When one Jew asks another, ‘How are things’ and his fellow responds by praising and thanking the Almighty, they are nourishing G‑d, deepening His involvement with His creation.”

    ujm what is ahavas yisroel? what is ahava? if we all come from the same shoiresh we dont differentiate.

    in reply to: What does “Yeshiva World” mean? #2018319

    Literaly yeshivah means: an Orthodox Jewish college or seminary.
    literaly world means: the earth, together with all of its countries and peoples.

    does that answer the question?

    ujm WHAT??????? when did you make this up. sorry im just astounded by such ignorance. EVERY yid no matter how far is a yid and belongs to the yisroel in ahavas yisroel.

    in reply to: bums? or finding their own path? #2017291

    Philophisor, theres one issue, i dont believe this theology cause ive been told it works ive seen love and warmth help people i know both tinoiks shenishba and people who went otd come back to yidishkeit. my grandfather sheyichye helped over 10 people become baal teshuvas in his shlichus. he was always an optimist and he never ever looked down at a single yid. he would have the most not observant yidden come to eat by a shabbos meal or come over to help them. he never looked at a yid by his aveiros, he looked at yidden like they were yidden with heilike nishomos that came straight from the eibershter! his aproach of love and warmth has helped tens become baal teshuvas or return to the derech. your aproach is negative and has no place in a yidishe derech. we live in a yiridos hadoirois and negativity only pushes people further.

    i have a harder time sitting through a class or a test (yes as syag figured out im only 17). by the end of year exam several years ago i mamash couldent sit still and i started walking around and got 150 kids upset at me for just walking around during an exam when your not allowed to stand up. so yes we learn diffrently but im in no way dumb. i just have a hard time sitting still and focusing

    in reply to: bums? or finding their own path? #2017276

    philosopher excuse my language but your a ‘Yesh’! a Yesh is someone who thinks he exist thinks he is great enough to be able to look down at another yid. this is clearly violating the fundamentals of ahavas Yisroel to look down at another yid especially if nothing good comes out of it. ahavas yisroel is not to shomer Shabbos individuals or those who follow your customs. Its harder to have ahavas Yisroel to another yid whom you consider lower, so in order to have a proper ahavas yisroel you have to realize that all yidden are brothers Mamash! “וְלָכֵן נִקְרְאוּ כָּל יִשְׂרָאֵל “אַחִים” מַמָּשׁ, מִצַּד שׁוֹרֶשׁ נַפְשָׁם בַּה’ אֶחָד” we come from the same root and no matter what we do we cannot change our root just like brothers have the same source, their parents, we have the same source, hashem, and how can we look down at a brother if at the end we are all from the same source? I think its integral to learn perek lamud beis tanya to understand why what your saying, philosopher is not only wrong but against torah. Im not trying to be harsh, im trying to come out of ahava not to ch’vsh try shteching you.

    we must encourage them not look down at them. negativity is only good for corona tests we must look at them as a fellow neshama with a deire to serve hashem that has been hidden by some dirt. help them clear away the dirt and they will see the bueetiful engravement of a rotzon far der eibershter inside.

    “מִי יוֹדֵעַ גְּדוּלָּתָן וּמַעֲלָתָן בְּשָׁרְשָׁן וּמְקוֹרָן בֵּאלֹקִים חַיִּים.” who are we to look down on a fellow yid. who knows how great his neshama is? who knows how great his tests are? who knows if we could stand the challenges he has? this is the fundementals of avas yisrael as described clearly in tanya!
