The Aruch Hashulchan paskens that you can turn on a light on Yom Tov. Nobody agrees to that.
Wow, very nice!
Who is the Degel Machaneh Ephrayim?
thank you, 45
Does anyone have the lyrics to this song?
Sometimes things need to be taken away from us for us to truly enjoy it.
We burn our toast a little, and use those ashes.
There was a text going around a few years ago:
Q:What do Bein Hazmanim and Tisha Be’av have in common?
A: You wear crocks, You don’t learn a word, and You put Tefillin on in the noon
Really? Is this correct? I thought the main problem was the change of the tzuras hadaf, and that nowadays everyone toned down, and it is acceptable now.
Also, is the new colorful Koren Shas also Shteinzaltz?

Your professor is terribly misguided, and hardly a student of American History. Abraham Lincoln, an ardent reader of the bible an adherer of religious scruples, felt guided by none other than the bible for the civil war.
I urge you to read this article on the subject, by Britain’s outgoing chief rabbi:
If you find that it may help some classmates in their faith, you can anonymously post this essay on the bulletin board, or in your classroom.
But the question is, presuming Noach’s Teiva landed somewhere in the Asian continent after the flood. How did the buffalo cross the Atlantic, or the kangaroo cross the Indian ocean?
jewishfeminist- Aha! so I was right.
a) Jewishfeminist’s husband is wont to chime in occasionally
b) I think those questions posted are very relevant, even in your particular answer.
Is it a particularly difficult Mesechta, or is it an interesting one that you are Chazering. What setting is it in. How often. All these identifying questions are very apropos in true advice on the matter.
curiosity, I just got your title and subtitle! very clever!
Prior to the verdict, Al and Jesse called for piece.
curiosity, I just know that animosity of your fellow prayer-mate is not conducive to prayer. But I guess you were just calling it a ‘disease’ to bring out a point.
I don’t think Talmud Yerushalmi has any baring in halacha. It is not orderly, unfinished, and not authoritative.
Why is there such a thing as chassan shas and not chassan Tur or Shulchan Aruch, or chumash, etc..?
Curiosity, clearly the guy was a very rude person.
Also, pixelate, there is a difference between out loud and OUT LOUD!
Ok, but officially, your supposed to Daven P’sukei Dezimra “OUT LOUD”. (Though no one does.)
And no, the plural nusach of davening and your personal decibal level really have nothing to do with each other.
That wasn’t the point I was trying to make; I was trying to say that it is unity that brings our prayers together. Both his rudeness and your complaining equally detracts from The Tzibbur’s tefilah.
borninthebronx, Thank you for sharing that gem.
jewishfeminist02- Rabbi Miller didn’t say something without thinking deeply into the matter beforehand. I presume if you study human psychology and motions you can find the underlying reason for pacing. Google ‘why people pace’
1) I don’t see anything inherently wrong with pacing during davening- it is usually done in shteibel-type places. Also, to Daven Shmonah Esrei in a place where people could walk right through is not Lechatchillah.
2) I don’t know who people follow nowadays, but the Mishna Berura says that you’re supposed to Daven especially aloud. (except for the Shmonah Esrei, which just you are supposed to hear)
Try to find a Shul that is more grounded, like with pews- you may find yourself more concentration there.
3) Also, let us not forget that we daven most of Tefilla in the plural, so your Tefilos are more accepted that way, together.
Cellphones are a completely seperate story.
This thread breaks my heart. ^ all of it.

Sam2- The Rambam has a letter explaining the need for deadlines
If you are referring to Igeres Teiman, he does not explain the ‘need for deadlines’.July 9, 2013 11:05 am at 11:05 am in reply to: Has anyone ever died of sitting too long on the Internet? #964575
Shopping, I think it means sitting continually for 6 hours straight.
It is one of the most fascinating Shiurim I’ve heard.
Perhaps you’re right.
wriresoul, I think Gefen was refering to Will there be Wi-fi?
I know this is true in regards to gefilte fish, where much flour was added at expense of the fish, due to the extreme povery.
nebach, at the expense of the fish.
It is not a joke, malnutrition and extreme poverty was rampant in pre-war Europe.
From whence do you know this? The Rambam makes the point that nothing will change except for our subjugation by the nations. Presumably that means that there will continue to be rich and poor amongst us.
You’re wrong in this respect; the Rambam says both (very last piece in Yad)
WIY- Abie has a comedy song called Matzoballs lecture. Its cute.
What is the name of the CD?
The first Beis Hamikdash was built by Shlomo Hamelech (King Soloman), the wisest of men. Meaning, his intellect far surpassed the inventions of the industrial revolution, the cyber revolution, and whatever revolutions contemporary scientist can only speculate of.
Possibly, the Beit Hamikdash was replete with inventions beyond our times.
It is interesting to note the famous Ben Yehoyada in Gittin, that Shlomo Hamelech used to speed down the streets of Yerushalayim in a coal-powered car, and everyone suspected he was being carried by Sheidim.
The Midrash and Meforshim say that at the foot of King Shlomo’s thrown, there was a golden lion that would spring to life to guard the thrown from anyone other than Shlomo trying to ascend, and that birds would carry a Sefer Torah to him.
Perhaps the power of Kedusha will circumvent the need for electric in the Beis Hamikdosh.
Although, the pulley and irrigation systems in the Beis Hamikdash were not nearly as sophisticated as modern-day technology.
There are some that speculate that it is man’s purpose to live in harmony with nature, and avoid any technology that interferes with the cycle of nature- (an idea defied in today’s sedentary world).
Perhaps this ides is supported by the Jewish custom not to burry in a casket, but rather upon the earth, to encourage decomposition and land enrichment. The drainage through irrigation under the Beis Hamikdash, as well, works in harmony with this biological cycle.
As far as the manual, relatively unsophisticated, pulley-system, there were clear and open miracles that took place in the Beis Hamikdash on a daily basis. So there was definitely an intended extent of miracles and automatically-run things, and the beginning of requisite human effort in the Beis Hamikdosh.
-I am curious to hear the views of Sam2, rebdoniel, and WIY on this.
E-O-M, Thank gd for this country and time that we live in.
Shopping, writersoul- you guys should hook up somehow.
My guess is because in Europe, where poverty was omnipresent, instead of a peice of chiken, matzoballs were added for the filling factor.
I know this is true in reguards to gefilte fish, where much flour was added at expense of the fish, due to the extreme povery.
(BTW, why is this inspired by Abie Rotenberg?)
Sam2 – since when does Mima’atim mean eliminating completely.
Also, my shul says hallel
Moshe says to Gad ad Re’uven: You want to stay here while your brothers are in battle?
That he wrote his whole will to Tzedaka.
That he gives everyone a lot of Mitzvos.
That he uses a protractor when he puts on Tefillin
That he learns Torah very loud in middle of the night.
That he smiles at Galachim.
That he licks his lips before kissing the Sefer Torah
That he doesn’t shower in the three weeks.
That he pours the Havdalla wine over his head and into his pockets.
That he wears two ties to Shabbos Mincha
That he says Asher Yatzar every couple of minutes
That he tastes all the food Lekavod Erev Shabbos
That he eats Milchigs on July 4
That he doesn’t tie his shoes on Shabbos
That he wears smaller suspenders on Yom Kippur
That he swears in Yiddish
I like this ^ thread, shopping. Great Jewish takeoff idea!
I don’t understand this ^ whole thread.- Why does a messy mik mean they can’t charge you to use it?
It cost money to build, right?
Biology- Ford was anti-Semitic, but some German car companies actually labored Jews under the Nazis.
Most people cannot bring themselves to drive a car boasting the logo of a company who tortured their brothers.
That is why in “compensation”, Israel is given German cars at a discount. Ford is a different story.- He was just an anti-Semite
(I’m sure like many others at that time).
(Because FDR was an anti-Semite, I can’t use dimes?)
Ironically, one of the higher-ups in Ford is a Jew, and may some day become the next CEO of Ford motors (Henry’s turning in his grave)
all your stuff.
Rav Aurbach z”l (Iforgot his first name, but he was a famouse posek in Yerushalayim,) was once on a bus in Israel, and an immodestly-dressed women sat next to him.
So, not to cause a chillul hashem or embarras her, he stayed on the bus, got out by the next stop and boarded another bus.
