No, he’s supposed to go outside and look for three more people to complete the minyan, talking freely while doing so, then come back and say yishtabach and immediately start barchu without waiting for his three captives to catch up
It is bad, but I think you should let him go just once or else it will just be worse.
However, more concerning is the kind of friends he seems to have. If he continues to accompany friends like these, it is certain he won’t be on the derech before long
Ujm mistook halacha for shiite islamism. It isn’t a sum game. It can very well be that Reuven is just very weird and has issues, or it can that he’s actually a huge parush. The point is, it depends on each person. If Reuven isn’t supposed to be machmir like he is, then I will be bold as to say that no, he won’t necessarily get more olam haha for doing it
It just so happened that there isn’t any such oath and never was. Some people are just very gullible
Avira, so let’s see
Avira, let’s see if you can say from memory the first three pesukim of any parasha (bar mitzva parashas excluded)
NO CHEATING!! GO!
Ujm, the gedolei Yisrael don’t approve of girls learning halacha? Sheker gamur.
Avira, so the GRA isn’t mesorah? He says that every boy must know all of tanach and be able to remember all of chumash b’al peh. The Rambam in hilchos talmud Torah, says that everyone must know all of mikra and dedicate a third of his limud to study mikra (unless he’s already a baki in all of Torah)
Ujm, girls are chayav to know all of the shulchan aruch that covers hilchos shabbos, kashrus, tefila, chametz, and much much more. Can you say you covered all that? It sounds like you’re a neo tzeduki
It already is taught and has been taught for ages. What planet are you from?
Avira is wrong. It doesn’t say anywhere oseh maaseh amcha in regard to that pasuk.
Also, not every Jew is a tzadik. The very definition of a tzadik is someone is not a beinoni. Someone who is never mesiach days from the Hashem (at least according to the best of his abilities).
They lied to you in preschool. Get over it. Maybe give your kids some quality chinuch yourself instead of entrusting all of their initial Torah learning to a handful of underpaid young women who are barely knowledgeable themselves. As a general rule, you cannot fulfill your obligation to teach your sons Torah by leaving it all to women. This is a great way to have your child off to a bad start.
The shtetl life mostly ended by the mid 19th century
Besides, there is no mitzva to financially benefit a heimish Jew over any other Jew who is shower Torah umitzvos. Perhaps we should seek to benefit talmidei chachamim, but they are rarely the ones to head big enterprises
Chachamim aren’t tools for marketing. And the fact is that there is hardly such a thing as a heimish company. Companies aren’t individuals
What exactly makes them heimish? Do you personally know the owners’ lifestyles?September 15, 2022 8:07 pm at 8:07 pm in reply to: Eliminating secular subjects from yeshiva curriculum #2125146
This may nor seem obvious to some, but it is a very real concern.
If you separate the yeshivos from the school system, many thousands of families would stop sending their kids to yeshivos altogether. Some would suffice by homeschooling both lemudei kodesh (a terrible and devastating prospect) and lemudei chol. Others would end up accepting public schools as a legitimate option for their children. We would undo a hundred years of progress, only this time infinitely more catastrophic.
Avira, what about all the hesder kolelim? Are they barely observant? They are definitely a lot more learned than you are
כל הפוסל במומו פוסלAugust 16, 2022 8:41 am at 8:41 am in reply to: How much is standard to spend on an engagement ring? #2115565
Wow I totally forgot about this thread. The engagement didn’t work out with that girl. It was called off almost right before we were supposed to announce it. I got married to someone from Israel just before this Pesach. I spent 2800 shekel on the engagement ring. Funny thing, I think the other girl married an Israeli too.
There’s no maale whatsoever in in imitating 18th century European nobles
@rightwriter that’s exactly my point! People also ate food and did many things before matan Torah. It means absolutely nothing
Where does your question start? Hindus also eat food and breathe air. Does that mean anything at all?
@commonsaychel I don’t disagree at all with advanced planning. I was specifically replying to the op who asked about road trips. He didn’t mention a set destination such as Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia.
Aaq, according to the Rambam you would be allowed to travel by boat on a river on shabbos. That was a major conflict between him and the rosh yeshiva in Bavel of that time.
Instead of driving (literally) your family crazy looking for a fictitious minyan, why not open a shulchan archive? You’re only required to travel up to a certain distance to find a minyan. If there are no jews in your area, then why not fly to catch a minyan?
The reason why it is safer in other western countries is because people do actually own guns, regardless of what the law is
Hundreds?? Are you sure? How CAN you be sure?
I’m not sure you dumped him. Maybe you couldn’t sit still for more than 3 minutes. Focus on improving your hasmadah
Reb Eliezer, thanks. That’s really great advice
Cs, I think this the origin story of every chasidus only with whiskey involved
Teenagers don’t follow shulchan aruch? What about kiddush, cos shel bracha, arba cosos?March 11, 2022 11:40 am at 11:40 am in reply to: Clarity: Ukraine, bloody Nazi past and the current innocent #2068354
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?
I completely forgot I made this thread. I do speak fluent ivrit, my kallah talks to me in ivrit. I just don’t want to be in an Israeli yeshiva – preferably. @beurbest which one?
והיה כשבתו על כסא ממלכתו
Montreal, Mont Tremblant in Quebec.
Poconos, there’s a Wegmans there with kosher meat.
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.
Darchei Torah in Far Rockaway. Several alumni were accepted to Harvard. You might not want to go to Harvard after learning there..
Carecube sounds like the best option
I haven’t found any urgent care that is open Saturday night.
Aaq, how can I find one of those?January 12, 2022 9:16 pm at 9:16 pm in reply to: What Steps Will the Charedi World Take to Try to Prevent Abuse #2050845

Take a lesson from Shimon and Levi. Make people think twice before trying anything
Lubavitch is like shevet Binyamin during the crises of pilegesh begivah. We’re not goreis you, so it doesn’t matter who you hold of
Aaq, it’s not a modern trend or a matter of popularity. It’s a pasuk in dvarim. When did people stop learning chumash?
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.
I just want to say you’re all wrong
Scientifically, it actually makes perfect sense.
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.
He is a kapo
The truth is, if someone is פורק עול תורה ומצוות, rest assured he has no chelek
Fake story for sure
Cs, no it isn’t. You are making it up or don’t know how to learn a basic gemara
Honestly, I would think in this scenario it would be easier for a girl. Either way, New York is the best place to find a shidduch no matter who you are. Although many New Yorkers have found their zivug elsewhere
