PBA- right. if they have problems then the internet allows them to do whatever they want a little easier. Why don’t they deal with their problem as a problem. What happened before internet, I’m sure there were problems then too.
I don’t know but try to relax before the fast starts. It’s too late now, but, I would take something (meds) to relax. Please check with a doctor to see what’s going on. Wishing you a refuah shelaima and an easy fast.
thanks, I don’t want to sound like I only read chick books, those sound more guy oriented, (I heard of some of them)
We all do stupid things sometimes, our conscious wakes up before/ on Yom Kippur.
Personally, I would thank them for calling and try to forgive them as much as possible. It’s really hard. It’s also hard for them to call as well.
OneofMany: Thanks, I’ve read a couple, but it looks like a good list. (The book’s usually better than the movie)
Do I have to klaap “Al Chet”?
jk, I’m not that prudish as long as it’s worth reading
“What’s your tolerance level? :)”
“The term “dank” refers to a HIGHer quality.”
isn’t “dank” weed?
“Fiction or non-fiction?”
either. something you enjoyed, something interesting to read(unpredictable)
No. dinner is normally twice a week (on a good week). But it would have come up or he’s doing a good job at hiding things…this whole idea leads to spying on your husband or visa versa…. Have you?
or it’s Shalom(goodbye) Bayis…
As a wife there’s certain expectations my husband has that we’ve had a mutual understanding about. It’s my responsibility to dress tzniusdikly. We all dress the way we feel is tzanuah at our level. I think my husband would & has told me to return something he feels is too tight/provocative. I feel it gives him the respect he deserves when I dress modestly. It carries into your Shalom Bayis. Keeping your relationship exclusive and intimate.
I just read the article on Artscroll pretty fascinating. I wasn’t under the all/or nothing mentality to begin with. But it’s interesting to see examples of this discourse. I guess it gives more room for discussion as to what personal bias or philosophy motivated such rendition. I have read other articles similar to this in terms of Jewish thought and perspectives.
“…This is felt in the rigid, my-way-or-you’re-an-apikores-dioraysa mindset…”
I haven’t found them to be too rigid. What are some examples of this? They cover the broader Jewish community. (across the board right-left)
I don’t know about you but I wouldn’t have gotten through school without Artscroll.
I’m not so savvy in learning but do you notice a difference in translation &/or perception of meaning between the sefer and Artscroll?
Be happy she’s going to shul!
I don’t think we have any right to turn away women who dress “immodestly”. Yes. It might not be comfortable for some. But be grateful she went and got dressed to daven in shul!
Give her some credit.
Filters really bother me.
I don’t like the idea that something’s blocked. Basically, I trust myself and hubby and we haven’t had a problem. Apparently each family’s different.
Just curious what’s the source for a yarmulka? (Men covering their head) Is it allowed to just wear for eating,davening, doing mitzvos?
Why would the Pope wear a skullcap?
I would reread r9913’s post.
I agree, The same goes with the Smoking thread.
It’s your life you make choices that you have to live with. I don’t think having a filter eliminates the problem. Practice self control.
Truthfully, If someone wants to watch whatever they will regardless. Those people need help.
I guess if you can do Hagba, your Rabbi prob. didn’t want you to end up like Samson/Shimshon!
I agree with SecularFrummy,
Kids who will grow up into adults need to start taking ownership of their actions.
If you choose to smoke it’s your choice, as with everything else in life.
The more we educate kids to make smart decisions; the more we will trust our kids!!
Nice job! I appreciate a good argument and but I can’t say you play your cards too well.
You question my unwavering belief in G-d and ask how can I who hasn’t answered for the fundamentals. Be ever so knowledgeable in attempting to refute him.
I for one haven’t answered a darn question.
So here you have it, I am very astute and well aware of the fact that atheists are intellectual seekers.
They happen to be wonderful people. I happen to have cultivated a friendship with a self-proclaimed Atheist. They want to find truth and are very motivated in their agenda. (READ: AGENDA!!)
The clearest and most apropos response is to speak to a Rabbi.
Personally, I have studied a multitude of text related to the fundamentals of Judaism.
My recommendation is given not as a cop out rather as a conduit for further growth and introspection. (READ: I don’t know the source or basis of his atheism)
I hope this message goes to whom it was intended. I truly pray that your Yom Kipper be a day of atonement and self introspection.
For the High Holy Days; I would suggest to go to a synagogue which has a scholarly Rabbi and operatic Cantor who will inspire throughout Yom Kipper.
We all need forgiveness, whether we believe or not!!! (that’s not from me that’s quoted from a legitimate atheist!)
eclipse: yes I studied Evolution.
It’s horrible to say, but I gotta say I love atheists. They question and question and tend to get very defensive about their doubts (as though we religious folk never had doubts).
Then when instructed to go speak to a Rabbi.
They say well I studied did my religious search “G-d (Chas V”Shalom) ain’t there so I ain’t gonna believe no more!”
This is based on a couple of atheists I know personally!
I recommend going to a social services facility in your area and obtaining the necessary welfare benefits you are qualified for.
I would not recommend you going for another degree, just continue searching for a position.
It is illegal for an employer to discriminate based on disability.
Find a mentor to study Torah with and you might be able to find a position in a Yeshiva. Which will enable Torah scholars to study.
Best of luck towards furthering yourself and best wishes for success!
I guess Lakewood001 knows something we don’t?
Hey maybe s/he’s god! Maybe we should all go bow down to his sapling and pray and dance 100 times (signifying each of it’s rings)around that darn thing?
Truthfully, If you question why don’t you ask a competent Rabbi who can advice on what you should do.
It seems you are wavering and doubtful in your belief.
Please don’t delude yourself that help in Judaism can come off the internet.
I heard the Yeshiva Neve Zion has an amazing Rabbi “The Mash”, Rabbi Solomon, R’Milstein, R’Wallerstein, R’Klatko, R’Skaist. and I’m sure there are others who guide all Jews with their scholarship.
BYM: How so???
Are women’s emotional, intellectual, hormonal, social, sexual, physical psyches similar to men??
Have you read, “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus”?
Wouldn’t you know since you repeatedly conveyed that you are a erudite science aficionado!
I believe that’s what Ben Levi meant.
