I think we should stop judging others and look at ourselves ONLY. If we see something we don’t like either offer to help or GO AWAY. We are very comfortable drawing conclusions without knowing the facts. We don’t need to know the facts we need to MIND OUR OWN BUSINESSES and concentrate on doing mitzvos and helping others. Criticism of others is wrong, counter productive and drags our middos down.January 15, 2014 8:42 am at 8:42 am in reply to: Newlywed and having guests #1121920
I don’t see what the big deal is. Why shouldn’t we be open to doing chasadim. One whole week of having guests is not too much to ask. They won’t be by you for 24 hours a day – I’m sure they work etc. Just make some rules – ie: you need to have certain hours free etc as you are in shanah rishonah. In my experience these things tend to be difficult if the person doing the chesed doesn’t make reasonable conditions.September 14, 2011 7:54 pm at 7:54 pm in reply to: NOT TZNIUS "BUBBIES" (also some fish, honey, and vinegar) #1200252

Sam2 – R. Moshe’s psak came from straight halacha – not his opinion regarding what actually happens in the relationship.
??? ????????? ?????? – this is halacha. Noone is trustworth when it comes to this issue.September 13, 2011 6:51 pm at 6:51 pm in reply to: Popa bar abba's gone missing!! #1115367

mosherose – the Torah demands that we live happy lives and create our own chelek in Torah. This means different things for different people. Rabbi Pliskin once said that we are obligated to do as much as we can to make ourselves happy (obviously correct choices). If constant Torah study etc makes you thrive and gives you fulfillment then that is the correct choice for you. However I feel that it is making you judgmental and narrow. Our Gedolei Torah who are as steeped in Torah as is possible to be are not as judgmental and narrow. Each person needs to find for himself what enables him to be a happy and well adjusted person in order to be able to grow.
A new halacha computer has just been developed.
You program in the question and the answer you would like and it tells you who to ask.September 13, 2011 8:41 am at 8:41 am in reply to: Girl wearing tallis and teffilin #809034
The whole issue is not whether it is allowed or not. But why she should want to do it something unusual in the first place. The biggest rebbetzens don’t feel the need to do it – they have other ways to come close to Hashem so why would a woman choose to do make her connection in that way. It smacks of feminism and being uncomfortable with her role in Yiddishkeit.September 13, 2011 8:38 am at 8:38 am in reply to: Platonic Relationships #810060
Rabbi Orlofsky’s shiur is amazing and puts the whole issue in perspective. It is informative and of course really entertaining.September 13, 2011 8:34 am at 8:34 am in reply to: Am I the oldest person in the CR. Anyone else nearly 50 #810397
What is wrong with asking others to comply. Noone has to respond if they don’t want to.September 12, 2011 8:56 pm at 8:56 pm in reply to: Am I the oldest person in the CR. Anyone else nearly 50 #810382
Each new age comes with so much more experience. It opens up new worlds. I really enjoy being my age and am looking forward to a lot more ages.September 12, 2011 8:42 pm at 8:42 pm in reply to: Am I the oldest person in the CR. Anyone else nearly 50 #810380
Yeah!!! Let’s hear it for age and experience……………..and fun!!!September 12, 2011 8:31 pm at 8:31 pm in reply to: Am I the oldest person in the CR. Anyone else nearly 50 #810376
Is that a subtle way of saying she is close to my age? Are you volunteering someone else’s age for them?September 12, 2011 8:20 pm at 8:20 pm in reply to: Am I the oldest person in the CR. Anyone else nearly 50 #810374
Are you going to leave me to do this by myself???????????September 12, 2011 7:39 pm at 7:39 pm in reply to: What do I tell myself? #809408
This is very painful. But most children have issues with friends who may not like them just for who they are even if they don’t have specific disabilities. Don’t be passive. Ensure that your child has what to give to others. Maybe he can learn a musical instrument or take some kind of art or other activity. Monitor his friends very carefully and encourage friendships from those who can help him be who he is. He doesn’t have to be friends with everyone and we can’t shield him from disappointment but he can built up to know that he has what to contribute to others.September 12, 2011 5:56 pm at 5:56 pm in reply to: Washing negel vasser before getting out of bed #1090512
Right – em0616 – that is what I heard. But I also heard of someone who was very sick and they were told to washing negel vasser before putting their feet on the floor so that they would have a refuah shleima.September 12, 2011 4:39 am at 4:39 am in reply to: shidduch crisis #808889
It is not a numbers game.
There are more good girls than boys.
Girls have less of a selection to choose from than boys.
A man walks into a bakery with a fish under his arm and asks for fish cakes. The baker says – excuse me this is a bakery – the supermarket is next door. The man looks at her in surprise and says, pointing to the fish, ‘but it’s his birthday!’.
I know both Rabbi Twersky do and also Rabbi Pliskin.
I’ll try and find an article
This is real obsession. The psychologists say you have to make a conscious effort to think about something else all the time. You cannot think about 2 things at once – so have a back up thought to fall back on every time you start to obsess and then you will get out of the habit of thinking about her. You also have to fill your life with meaningful activities to make you fulfilled and then you won’t need her so much.September 11, 2011 8:17 pm at 8:17 pm in reply to: Negative date! #809267
I don’t think this is anything to do with you or him. Sometimes it just doesn’t go together. I had some awful dates when I was young and dating – I am thinking of one in particular – and my good friend ended up marrying him. If you don’t bring out the good in each other it is not worth pursuing.September 6, 2011 10:38 pm at 10:38 pm in reply to: Where To Be For Sukkos #806353
Oh well. It was a thought. If you strike it rich next year…… then you’ll probably upgrade to the Plaza etc
You need to speak this out with another member of your family so you can learn to deal with disagreements in a different way than your parentsSeptember 6, 2011 10:28 pm at 10:28 pm in reply to: I want to be the most perfect wife be'esras hashem bekorov! #806424
Don’t try and be perfect that always is an instant depression. Pick one thing you find easy to work on and stick to it no matter what. That will automatically lead to other stuff.September 6, 2011 10:26 pm at 10:26 pm in reply to: New Hangman! Join the fun! thread (to replace the broken one) #863980

uSeptember 6, 2011 8:46 pm at 8:46 pm in reply to: why do girl/boys blush at the opposite gender? #806176
Oh, the gift of blushing – it is so embarrassing – mostly because everyone finds a need to comment and tell you you look cute. Thank the l-rd I grew out of that – age toughens you up. Now instead of blushing I just get defensive.September 6, 2011 8:41 pm at 8:41 pm in reply to: midwives.. #807239
My daughter wanted to study nursing. She asked Rav Steinman for an eitzha. He said that she should wait until after she is married and then learn to be a midwife.
