I know quite a few nursing students who graduated last year that can’t find decent jobs. Social work doesn’t pay all that well at the beginning, but once you go private and build up a clientele, you can make at least 100-150 an hour. I don’t know many nurses who make that much. Granted, you will be required to attend trainings to maintain your license (I don’t know if that’s require of nurses), and it’s recommended to keep up to date in the newest research and therapies. Nurses also can have grueling hours, while social workers can generally make their own hours. At the beginning, a nurse might make more, but in the long run, if you are an ambitious person, you can do well for yourself as a social worker.
Cheftza, as I mentioned earlier, I’ve never had any issues with people eating at my house. I don’t serve them foods without a hechsher, and they have no problem with the keilim.
Truthfully, do you really know what goes on in other people’s kitchens? I believe there is a concept that it is permissible to eat in someone’s house if they are shomer shabbos (correct me if I’m wrong).
Cinderella – we all make mistakes. I just hope lesson learned.
Astounded – I want to add that I live in a very religious community, and no one has ever had a problem eating at my house. And they are all very aware that I follow Rabbi Abadi.
astounded – yup, I sure do. As per exact directions from my rav.
There seems to be three issues being discussed –
1. Whether or not it is ok to rely on ingredients alone to determine the kashrus status of a product.
2. Whether or not it is ok that the OP opened her mouth to a complete stranger about something that did not affect her.
3. Whether or not it is Lashon Hara to discuss this at all.
My opinions are as follows:
1. It is imperative that every Jew follows a Rabbi for everything. If your Rabbi says this practice is ok, then it is. If he does not, then it is now. You can argue until your face turns blue, but those of us who follow the ruling that it is ok trust our rav, so it really doesn’t matter how you dispute it.
2. Personally, as I stated earlier, I feel that it was absolutely none of her business.
3. I’ll have to abstain from commenting, as I am not well versed enough on the laws of shmiras halashon. But as a side point, there is so much lashon hara that goes on here, that if anyone here is really so concerned, s/he would stay away from these forums altogether (which is exactly why I usually do… but nobody’s perfect).
Astounded – your ignorance astounds me. Do you have a rav that you follow for everything? I do. And he says that it is 100% ok to read ingredients. As yitayningwut wrote earlier, Rabbi Abadi can back up his psak with halacha. Yet you bring up the holocaust to back your point, so you must know what you’re talking about.
P. S. I use my oven and dishwasher for dairy and meat, so you def don’t want to eat at my house.
Yitayningwut – I couldn’t have said it better myself 🙂
Au contraire, syag – the rude one here is the op who feels it necessary to meddle in others’ business.
As an aside – Rabbi Abadi bases his psak on very mainstream rabbanim (did any of you ever hear of R’ Moshe?).
Cinderella – are you really speechless that there are others who have different religious standards than you? While you may have thought you were doing her a favor, quite frankly it was none of your business.
72 – I can’t comment on your specific experience, but there are those who hold that FDA is enough supervision, as any company that doesn’t follow their guidelines to a tee faces very large fines. As such, some rabbanim hold that that is sufficient.
I’m speechless too… this is what you felt was worthy of this thread title? If you’re old enough to be on the internet unsupervised, then you’re old enough to know that not everyone is like you. I do the same as yitaningwut, as per my (very Orthodox) Rabbi. As do many people I know.
It amazes me what a warped view most of you seem to have of Lakewood.
What about those of us who have been harmed by squeak? Let’s not forget, lashon hara, particularly when not true, can harm someone.
Nothing like sitting down to a good Dr. Seuss book with a glass of fermented plum juice..
ames?! <rubs eyes in disbelief>
I think it’s time for both sides to get over their mutual obsession

Some of us are just better than others I guess
Hi fellow blue man 🙂

Wow I wish I was as cool as you. I want my name to be in blue too!

This is all too much for me.. I’m going back into my cave.

Yes, 26, everyone needs to remember their proper place..

And when I saw that fly go past, I asked him why he went so fast.
I asked him why he shook with fear, I asked him why he said Oh Dear
He said, I MUST GET OUT OF HERE!
I saw him shake, he shook with fear
A fly went by, he said, “Oh Dear!”
I don’t know, aren’t you the one with the mouse in the house?
hmm I’m eating it right now.. nope, doesn’t taste like vomit.
Great.. I thought you would at least be able to explain it to me, Mom.
areivim – I don’t get it?
I kinda rely on you for that stuff. And I’ll bet you’re so proud of yourself right now..
Thank you, feivel. I will now dispose of all the parmesan cheese in my house.
2 more that I left out – “these ones” and “I’m being there” (as opposed to “I’m going to be there”). Those are really bad, but you’d be unpleasantly surprised at the number of people who speak like that.
Oomis – add to that list – “irregardless”, “a whole nother” and “all of the sudden”.
Check out this thread, and you’ll see what a hopeless cause this all is.
Am I missing something here? There was a full fledged (Modern) Orthodox community in Lakewood before the yeshiva started. Most have them have since left, as their community grew smaller and smaller, but the biggest change to Lakewood has been the Yeshiva. Maybe they think the Yeshiva “ruined” Lakewood. Although I’m sure none of them would write such a letter, because aren’t we all Jews? Does the letter writer really believe he is the ultimate Jew and all others must be like him or leave? At least I am comforted by the fact that most comments don’t seem to agree with his holier than thou attitude. There is hope after all. May we merit the coming of mashiach very very soon.
Thanks everyone for your help.. going to have someone in Israel see if he can pick one up for me 🙂
asdfghjkl, do you know that these places have it, or are you just suggesting? I don’t live in bklyn, but close enough to drive if I knew I could find there.
First of all, I can’t believe so many of you actually googled mariner’s post to see where he got it from. Seriously..
But more importantly, mariner, I really hope you were joking when you wrote that when speaking, it is ok to say “me and Moshe”. Most people who have any command of the English language say “Moshe and I”. Your third grade teacher is in good company.
Mariner – although what you wrote is correct, that rule does not apply to the sentence in question.
“I recently joined this forum, and I am wondering why it is that most of the people that post here cannot put together a proper sentence.”
Contending that the coordinating conjunction is adequate separation, some writers will leave out the comma in a sentence with short, balanced independent clauses. If there is ever any doubt, however, use the comma, as it is ALWAYS correct in this situation. So, while the comma does belong there, it’s not because it’s in a series of three or more items, but because each line on either side of the comma can stand on its own as a full sentence.
And Zishe, while “The comma after “atrocious” may be debatable”, it certainly is not “dead wrong”.
