    I’m not sure you dumped him. Maybe you couldn’t sit still for more than 3 minutes. Focus on improving your hasmadah

    @shalom-al-israel

    I’m so confused. Why do you assume they are innocent just because they were born afterwards? Did they do teshuva?? How did they attempt to make ammends? Did they at the very least ask forgiveness?
    All people are responsible for the sins and crimes of their ancestors so long as they have not taken any steps towards teshuva. That is also why we are responsible for the chet ha’egel, and that is why Mashiach did come in the days of Ezra, because they did not do a complete teshuva for avodah zara even though they were already the next generation. When we say viduy, we always acknowledge our fathers sins. Why? Is it just ceremonial, symbolic, or superfluous? It is an integral part of teshuva. It is absolutely fundamental to the process of atonement.
    So yes, they are indeed guilty. And I suspect that are also proud of what their fathers and mothers did. If they have never even begged forgiveness, why would anyone think otherwise?

    Don’t answer if you agree

    We are going to be living in Karmiel almost definitely. If there actually is an American kollel here, I haven’t heard of it. That would be ideal, but even Afula is also good. Can I please have more details?

    Montreal, Mont Tremblant in Quebec.

    Boston..
    Niagra Falls, I went there last year, and it’s beautiful during the winter especially the hike along the Niagara River. There’s also Fort Niagara nearby. It’s from the war of 1812. You can see the Toronto skyline across the lake.

    If you truly want to know what is a gadol hador, take lessons from sefer shoftim. It is not an anointed position. It is conferred upon someone through haskama of the klal. There used to be in recent decades a wide selection of agreed upon gedolei Yisrael from many backgrounds. Now, we have very few that are recognized by most. This is what is foretold in parshas haazinu.

    The further you go back in time, pathogens and viruses were less and less frequent among people. They also had cures that were lost and forgotten over time.

    AAQ, maybe you have a habit of being rude to others. I was only talking about doing what’s right. We’re not here to be marketers for the world. We just do what Hashem wants, regardless of how others perceive us.

    Baum, precisely yes. That is exactly what I mean. I wouldn’t expect a lubavitcher chasid to grasp this mind blowing concept.
    It seems as though you’re under the absurd impression that Hashem needs your help to be mekadesh His name. That is similar to what Hindus believe. They think their gods need assistance.

    As long as we do the ratzon Hashem, it doesn’t matter in the slightest how it appears to others. Sof sof, Hashem orchestrates His world and His creations as He sees fit. You just do your part and don’t try ro be a back seat driver.

    Your average LOR or pulpit Rabbi would probably tell you a chilul/kidush Hashem means making sure the goyim and secular Jews like us. This is very foolish. They don’t like us regardless of how nice we act. The average gentile couldn’t care less about our Torah and how special we show ourselves to be.

    Ujm got it right. Just do the right thing. It makes no difference at all of how others perceive our actions as long as it is the correct way.

    I had an Israeli friend who was very liberal. He was always talking about how terrible the Palestinians are treated. I told him one day, “did you hear about that bus full of kkk members that fell into the river?” No, he said. I said, yeah they all drowned. “Great!” He exclaimed.
    I then said, no I actually just made it up. But what if it was a bus full of Palestinians? They’re just as racist and evil as the kkk.

    If the average robot brained liberal would reflect on this for a moment, might they lose their sympathy for them just a little?

    There are many types of people, and using a traditional shadchan just doesn’t work for some (a lot of people).

    My advice to you is just be straightforward. No need for many fancy words. Just text “let’s go out again.” Show that you’re confident.

    Avira, you can coddle all you want but you’ll only do harm in the end. I have rachmanus, so I’m warning her that if her parents continue behaving like this her husband will likely divorce (worst case scenario, but not good for shalom bayis regardless). The in laws need to leave them alone.

    Keep your last name as insurance. Your husband is likely to divorce after a few miserable years of your parents breathing down his neck. (Seriously)
