    Adolph Hitler, too, was a great orator. Did you ever see a video him speaking — and how he would get the crowd roaring? He too was very telegenic.

    I don’t know of it technically qualifies as chukas hagoyim, but it certainly is a very unjewish thing to do. Quite ekeldik.

    Actually, Oberlanders usually do get lumped together with Chasidim while Yekkes usually get lumped together with Litvaks/Misnagdim. Regardless, my above point about the comparitive equivelence of government aid between chasidim and non-chasidic chareidim holds true whether or not you include Oberlanders and/or Yekkes in the sample size. Both Oberlanders and Yekkes are a very small minority of the Frum Ashkenazic population.

    Yes, some people have certain genes that make them more prone to be a serial killer, homosexual or adulteror. Those people must overcome those tendencies. Otherwise they are reshoyim gemurim. We must not make public support “clubs” that do nothing more than legitimize these sickos.

    anon1m0us: Please read the gemora. It clearly demonstrates that something as minor as the color of a shoelace can define Jewish clothing. And as the gemora says, the Jewish clothing were for reasons of Jewish modesty as well as for us to consciously choose to seperate ourselves from the Gentiles.

    Yes, there is disticntive Jewish clothing and dress code today as there has been throughout Jewish history from the time we were in Eretz Mitzrayim.

    You have statistics? No you don’t. You merely have preconceived notions that you are projecting on others. Other Chareidim (non-Chasidim) are on government assistance at the same rate. Furthermore, no other frum groups have established the numerous chesed organizations (not to mention mosdos) as the Chasidim have at great financial cost. That money is not coming from the government.

    Chasidim are no poorer than other Chareidim. And in fact may be overall richer. Look at the great mosdos, yeshivos, tzedakah organizations and untold other chesed organizations they built. Witness who runs the diamond districts in New York and Europe. Witness B&H Photo, etc.

    Gershomi:

    1) How old was she when converting – under 12 or over 12 years old?

    2) Was she converted through an Orthodox Rabbi? If so, which Rabbi?

    If it was a kosher Orthodox conversion where she intended to keep all the Mitzvos (and from the vague information you provided it sounds probable it was), then once she became a Jew at her young age she will always remain a Jew.

    “Creamed”? Whatever that means. He is seeking attention. And what you might consider embarrassing for him on the radio interview, he doesn’t and actually considers he embarrassed the host.

    mi pueblo: Someone already tried that. But what happened instead was that the guy who tried it ended up in a cast for a few months. Wasnt a good idea.

    I don’t understand why the school is being so stubborn and doesn’t let the boys into their boys school instead of giving everyone the problem of a girls school having a couple of boys roaming around every day.

    Curiosity: You completely missed the point, either intentionally or unintentionally, of that gemora in Sanhedrin. The gemora clearly demonstrates that yidden have a unique yiddishe way of dress. And that unique yiddishe style of dress can go down to being as specific as a shoelace color. Now the gemora then goes on to say that during a shas shmad if the goyim threaten your life if you don’t stop wearing “the Jewish shoelace color” then you are obligated to be prepared to die rather than change from wearing the Jewish shoelace color. But that doesn’t change the gemora’s starting basis that even during normal times (with no shas shmad) there can be such a thing as a specific shoelace color that is “The Jewish” form of dress.

    Oh, and great point you made associating a nazir with a chup.

    Being a soldier in the Army requires a uniform.

    The uniform includes the haircut.

    So does being a soldier in Hashem’s Army.

    No. Since they are ovdei a”z you need not take any corrective action. (In fact, it may even be halachicly assur to take corrective action since it benefits ovdei a”z.) This is based on the presumption there is no likelihood of them realizing their error.

    No. The insurance companies (yours and his) sue each other (or settle) to determine fault. Everyone expects that one or both people in an accident may have lied to the police officer. It’s very common to lie.

    Sam: The Mishna Brura and others say to wear a double head covering.

    The mashgiach of a prominent yeshiva told my brother that the only reason he wears his hat at the shabbos meal is that his kids do.

    He was kidding around. He wouldn’t just blindly follow his children’s narishkeit. He wear it because its the right thing to do.

    There are no more misnagdim. The Gra’s biggest talmidim today learn Torah with Chasidim, join Chasidish Rabbonim on issues for the klal, consider them gedolim and marry Chasidim. And have been doing so for over a hundred years.

    I have the same problem. No talis bag and no eruv (so can’t put in pocket.) The garbage is near the hallway and I would have to trip over 25 people in middle of davening to get there. (Some of them in middle of shemone esrei sometimes.)

    So I put it on the table near the guy sitting across from me. Just kidding. I put it near me.

    rabbiofberlin: You are incorrectly comparing the UTJ and Shas to the Chilonim. The OP is comparing them to MO/DL. You should only be looking at the DL-only parties. You also need to consider the fact that a lot of Chareidim in EY do not vote al pi shitta (i.e. Eidah, Brisk, etc.)

    Yichusdik,

    Stop calling the words quoted verbatim here from the Seforim Hakedoshim as being my position. It isnt. It is the Seforim Hakedoshim’s position. Not mine. I take and took no position other than to accept what the quoted Seforim state. Your disagreement is with the Seforim, not with me. Even if you falsely wrap your 20th century beliefs around general statements by Achronim.

    yichusdik,

    Forget about reconciling facts, evidence, experience, or knowledge with my or others here assertions. Simply acknowledge, accept, embrace and love the sweet and heilige direct verter of the Seforim Hakedoshim as simply stated in the Medrash Talpiot, Nitai Gavriel, Shulchan HaEzer and Chesed L’Avraham and others. And IY”H when you get married, take advice from the Seforim Hakedoshim. It has helped countless Yidden over many many generations and centuries.

    Chachmei Yisroel, with siyata dshmaya from the Aibershter, never let us down.
