I just took a look at the first post on this thread; the basics she mentions are just that – basic tznius standards.
I think we all would do well by using the first post on this thread (maybe printing it), and using it as a handy guide to basic standards for tznius.November 27, 2008 6:46 pm at 6:46 pm in reply to: What is Your Hashkafic Affiliation? #626916
Count me as a Ben Torah who coincidentally (and of no great importance) is of Ashkenazic stock.
As far as the other terms, I’ve heard myself being called Baal Habatish (whatever that means), Heimish, Yeshivish, Frum, Orthodox, Ultra-Orthodox, Chareidi, and a host of other names I don’t remember, nor care to.September 24, 2008 4:56 pm at 4:56 pm in reply to: Mochel Loch… time to forgive and be forgiven! #1184851

never heard of that supposed story at the agudah convention. and no reference to it through google.September 16, 2008 7:01 pm at 7:01 pm in reply to: The Jewish National Anthem #622527
I believe the correct translation is thus:
G-d is our King,
We are his servants
The holy Torah is our Law
We are loyal to it.
We do not recognize the Heretic Zionist Regime
Its laws do not apply to us
We walk in the ways of the Torah
In fire and water
We walk in the ways of the Torah
To Sanctify the Name of Heaven

What is the shverkeit of this Torah? It only becomes shver if you subscribe to American equality, a non-Torah concept. This is a pushut Gemorah that Rambam paskens on. A) The wife has specific responsibilities (it is listed above.) B) If she refuses to carry out her responsibilities, there is a specific method (listed above) how to enforce it. Rambam says with a stick and Rabad says by reducing her essentials, including food.
It should be noted though, that it is a two-way street. The husband has certain responsibilities as well. And if he violates some of them and he refuses to change his behavior, Beis Din is empowered to enforce it, including with corporal punishment.August 24, 2008 4:35 am at 4:35 am in reply to: Dating Dilemmas #621276
And the Rambam, in an indication of how serious the matter is writes in halacha 10 “Any woman who does not do the tasks which she is obligated to do is forced, even with a stick.” The Rabad wrote in his meforesh on this ruling: “I have never heard of hitting a woman with a stick, but one reduces the necessities given to her and her food until she gives in.”August 22, 2008 5:20 pm at 5:20 pm in reply to: Dating Dilemmas #621266
I think its a good idea for the girl to open up the door for the boys on dates because it is good practice for marriage.
Rambam writes in Laws of Interpersonal Relations, chapter 21, halacha 7: “We find that every woman performs five tasks for her husband. She spins, washes his face, hands, and legs, pours his drink, makes the bed, and serves him. There are six tasks some women do and some don’t: grind and bake and cook, wash, nurse children, and feed the animals.”
