    When JRoute is off the air, 99% of the time I hear ONLY STATIC, so they are not cutting into the LI station’s business. No one is making money off of JRoute. The revenue generated by the advertisements don’t even cover their costs to run the station properly. This station has wonderful frum programming: Jewish music (no kol isha), weekly broadcasts by Rabbonim such as R’ Benzion Klatzko, R’ Dovid Goldwasser, R’ Zecharia Wallerstein, R’ Jonathan Rietti, R’ Mordechai Becher, R’ Duvi BenShushan, and so many more. Both Ashkenazi and Sephardic rabbonim are broadcast. They have a weekly show about Kashrus concerns; they have a shows about kiruv; a weekly show dedicated to classic Jewish music and one dedicated to current Jewish music. The content on JRoute is really valuable to the Jewish population both frum and non-religious. It deserves to be a community radio station as it functions as one already.

    We totally agree with you! We love JRoute and want it back on the air! There is no reason why it shouldn’t be considered a community station which does not cost the station any $. They just need to be approved for it. Everyone should contact their local representatives and request that they be granted that status!!! If anyone has any pull with local politicians PLEASE make a call and let’s see if we can get them back on the air consistently. (Btw, when I’m home or have wifi access, I still listen to them on the website or from the app JRoute Pro – android.) AZOI.IS, thanks for starting this thread!

    in reply to: Understanding The Haiti Tragedy #672891

    Pashuteh Yid:

    Yes, the earthquake in Haiti and its aftermath is very sad and very tragic. But we have to understand that there are things in life that we can not fathom Hashem’s intent, and we must trust that the Ribono Shel Olam is only good and does good for His creations.

    You remind me of the mashal of the man who has never been to a farm and he does not understand how grain is grown. All he sees is a beautiful field, with flowers and grasses, and along comes the farmer and plows out all the beautiful plants. The farmer ruins everything, and in its place is now just a field of overturned dirt! The man can not believe what he has seen, and cries over the destruction of such beauty. Imagine his surprise when the farmer then comes and digs holes in the earth and takes grains and buries them! What a waste! How could he waste good grain like that! Well, you can imagine how the story proceeds…He finally sees the wonderful field of grain and the farmer comes along and cuts it all down! How could he ruin everything he worked for like that?! It is the same with every step. Everything the farmer does seems incomprehensible to the man. Every time the man thinks he sees the reason and the good, the farmer does something else he just can not understand for the life of him! Why would you beat the beautiful plants you have just grown? Ah! To get the grain. But what is this? Why are you crushing all that grain that you have grown to dust? It is not until he sits down to a meal with the farmer and eats the delicious bread that the man can understand the farmer’s wisdom.

    We can not always know Hashem’s reasons, but we know that Hashem has a plan and always does chesed with his creations. Understanding this can give us nechamah when a horribly sad tragedy occurs.

    I hope this knowledge can ease your mind a bit.

    in reply to: Crawling #671747

    NY Mom
    Member

    I agree with those above who say that it is a little early to get your baby evaluated. Very normal to begin to crawl at 10 months. And some babies never crawl, but just scoot around on their bottom, leaning on one hand – kind of propel themselves along while in a sitting/leaning position. (Hard to describe, but anyone who has seen it knows what I mean!)

    Also, now that pple are putting their babies to sleep on their backs, rather than on their tummies, crawling later or not crawling at all, is much more common. This was the case with my own daughter, who is now perfectly fine B”H. I would just make sure she gets plenty of floor-time and plenty of tummy-time too. The therapist who evaluated my daughter advised that every time I change her diaper, give her tummy-time. I would put her on her tummy and put toys around her out of reach to give her incentive to move.

    Hope that helps!

    Wolf: When I said, “as long as the father is the genetic father of the baby”, I just meant to bring up the issue that the identity of the sperm donor might change the situation. As you just listed above, there are many possibilities, and the type of delivery is not the only determining factor. That is why SJS’s question was an interesting one.

    I think “Abba” is an uncommon name for a man. I only know one man named Abba. (Although, I know plenty called that by their own children. 😉 )

    as long as the father is the genetic father of the baby.

    That’s interesting. Why would that be? I don’t see why the identity of the genetic father would make a difference <>(provided he wasn’t a Kohen, Levi or non-Jewish [and I’m not even certain about that last one]).

    That was my meaning. If is makes a difference whether or not the father is a Cohen or Levi, then wouldn’t it be a determining factor when deciding if there should be a pidyon haben or not? (The non-Jewish genetic father I have no clue about.)

    SJS: That is an interesting question, but I think it is mostly dependent on delivery and not conception – as long as the father is the genetic father of the baby.

    I know of a mainstream girl school where the girls must deposit their phones in plastic containers in the front office at the beginning of the day and take them back at the end of the day.

    In one boy’s yeshiva high school that I am aware of, there is a rule that cell phones must be turned off during learning. If they forget to turn them off, they are definitely not allowed to answer. If they answer, the phone is confiscated and not returned.

    Cell phones are a problem for many reasons. If a yeshiva has a “no cell phone” policy, they must enforce it, with seichel.

    anon: Dictionary.com says we are both correct 🙂

    “Jes?si?ca [jes-i-kuh]

    noun

    a female given name, form of Jesse.”

    “Word Origin & History

    Jessica

    fem. proper name, from L.L. Jesca, from Gk. Ieskha, from Heb. Yiskah, name of a daughter of Haran [Gen. xi.29].”

    anon for this: NY Mom, I know a little girl named Yiskah. Of course Jessica used to be a very popular name, though less so now.

    Interesting. It never occurred to me that Jessica came from the name Yiska. As far as I knew, the male name Jessie is the English translation of Yishai (As in Dovid ben…), and I just thought Jessica was the female version of that.

    Phyllis: I don’t think Elana is uncommon. Less common than Rivky – yes, but I wouldn’t say “uncommon”, as I have known several girls/women over the years with that name.

    One uncommon girl’s name: Yiska.

    This was another name for Sara Imeinu.

    I only know one girl with that name.

    Would you let us know if they get engaged, at least?

    Doesn’t have to be immediately, so we wouldn’t figure out who it is.

    nameless: “Kloinemus” In some Chasiddish communities this is common. I usually hear it paired with Kalman – Kalman Klonimus.

    Unusual names I have heard:

    Odom – I know someone who gave their son this name as his English name is Adam.

    Noach – There are some, but not so common. Maybe now that R’ Noach Weinberg ztzl passed away it will become more common.

    Avigdor – I know of two. Has there been an increase in this name since R’ Avigdor Miller ztzl passed away? May not be easy to tell, because it would probably shortened to Avi, which could be a nickname for other more common names.

    Not only does it damage hearing, it is not enjoyable when it is so loud. You can’t even speak to the person sitting right next to you. Usually at a chasuna, if I want to have a conversation, we have to yell into each others ear.

    That is just inexplicable to me.

    Considerate baalei simcha should stipulate to the band that the volume should be at a reasonable level.
