Interesting that there are actually Jews who are jumping to take the word of an Iranian official over that of an American. Besides the fact that in September 2018 Israel itself announced that it had attacked Iranian assets in Syria 200 times, no secret here.December 29, 2020 2:36 pm at 2:36 pm in reply to: The Trump Vaccine for the Chinavirus Developed via Operation Warp Speed #1933214
trump vaccine because he said he wanted it? He had nothing to do with its creation, skilled experienced scientists did. Operation warped slow motion, only two million vaccinated, when they said twenty million would be done by the end of the year. More incompetent bungling.
to me there is something wrong with chewing gum anywhere
“the gum chewing girl and the cud chewing cow
are different yet similar some how.
oh yes I know now,
it’s the intelligent look on the face of the cow!”
how about just a little saichel; why did the Iranians even come to the table, because they are big tzaddikim, ohavei shalom? No, they came because sanctions are hurting them, the answer is clear continue and strengthen sanctions, that’s the alternative, not war as the president & Kerry would have us believe
many of the people who run for office seem to be dummies, so all people should have an equal opportunity to vote for them
I often hope that some of the comments I find are actually jokes and the purpose is to get a rise out of people.
Here is a mitzvah, hachnosas Kallah, which is listed as ochail pairosahem b’olam hazeh v’hakeren kayemes l’olam haboh. A mitzvah of chesed based according to the Rambam on v’ahavta l’raacha kmocha THE Klal gadol baTorah. Who is Patur from that? Who would want to run away and avoid that?
Does anyone think that hachnosas kallah is just for showing up to the chasunah?
the snow is a siman tov; Purim-Yom Kipurim there is tremendous rachamim and kapara on Purim; says the navi- lechu na v’nivachacha im yihiyu chataaichem kashani KASHELEG yalbinu

I would say all leadership in both houses on both sides & ALL tea party members, then maybe Congress can get back to the business of getting things done for the country. If that doesn’t work, keep cutting them.
Use the Chayei Adam’s list; that’s sufficient; as my rebbe taught us, why is viduy in alef-bais order? if not, you wouldn’t know when to stop.
whatever the motivation, this is very good for Klal Yisroel, as the Ribbono shel Olam runs the show. they are busy butchering each other & leaving us alone.
As Rav Hutner z’tl said when told about the Iran-Iraq war, “zol zei beder matzliach zein!”
CharlieHall is correct, private gun ownership in Israel is illegal. You have to be in security etc to get a permit & you must renew it annually.
this morning I heard a third party, namely another passenger on the plane, say on the news that there were a number of students disobeying repeated requests to be seated & turn off phones.
some may not like it, but it’s the discretion of the airline to decide how to handle such a situation.
when in doubt-BEHAVE LIKE A MENTSH!
Chilul ‘H comes about from Yidden who are supposed to present a higher standard, what difference does it make which “type” of yeshiva?May 29, 2013 5:55 pm at 5:55 pm in reply to: Thoughts on Someone Selling His Olam Habah on Ebay #971235
as the story goes, don’t know if the buyer gets it, but the seller certainly lost it!May 28, 2013 5:34 pm at 5:34 pm in reply to: An Open Letter from R’ Shteinman Shlita Regarding IDF Draft #955882
my Rav gave a very good moshol: would you go to war with guns but with no ammunition? Chazal say limud haTorah is maigen, so it is a weapon of defense against our enemies. it is normal that chilonim do not understand this concept, but I would assume those here should.
SaysMe, are you having cheesecake? it’s only a minhag, not a chiyuv
why go thru all of that when there is soy product that is very good, & you can put on real pizza!
as Rav Shlomo Brevda z’tl stated:
“learning Torah- vadai
reason why things happen- safek”
I believe it’s safe to say there are no neviim in the CR
see Pachad Yitzchok, the maase of Rabba & Rav Zeira demonstrated tchiyas hamaisim
I hope not for his sake, otherwise we’d see all the holier than thou’s telling us he wasn’t frum or frum enough for them, & why was he buried in a goyishe cemetary etc
it’s difficult to read some of the posts here, so am I to understand that if someone else eats chazir it’s ok for you to eat it?!?!
if someone says lashon hara, it’s ok for you to speak it?!?!
the world is going mad, r’l
only at the seudah & only yayin.
DaasYochid: mechilas kevodcha, this, along with many other comments in the coffee room, is FULL of lashon hara. those who speak of the aveiros of another are opening themselves up to being scrutinized in shmayim, H’yerachaim!
acharei-mos, kedoshim, emor I’ve always heard, better to err on the side of caution (true yiddishkeit)
perhaps engage his rebbi, since he is such a gevaltige bochur, I’m sure he would take what the rebbi would say to heart. you should have nachas!
your question was should you send condolences, why not? what’s the question?
perhaps it’s lashon “kineh”(jealousy), find a chaver with qualities YOU (lcha) want to emulate
I once saw Rav Shlomo Brevda z’tl quoted:
Talmud Torah kneged kulam- vadai
davening with kavnah- vadai
why H’ brings natural disasters- safeik
the issue (removal of bekeshe) it would appear is the lack of kavod, could this in any way be a result of machlokes??
“A flawed concept with no basis in classical Jewish thought.”
complete am haratzus; take a look at pasukim (no less) Devarim 17:9-13. Lo sasur min hadavar asher yagidu lecha.
mishna: aseh lecha Rav.
I imagine if you’re a person who wouldn’t be learning any other time, perhaps…otherwise it seems like a real bizayon of Torah. Would you jog in the Bais haMikdash even if you were properly clothed?
this question baffles me; we train our children not to speak loshon hara, why not nivul peh as well?
We should all have stronger kavana & simcha as we daven Hallel these last days of Yom Tov-hakores hatov to the Ribbono shel Olam.
I was troubled (at least the reports I read or saw) that Noam Shalit thanked many but made no mention of Hashem.
because the oil companies who have a monopoly want even more money, supply is up & demand is down, figure it out yourself
looks like he never learned the Rambam…
Ktoret11- savage spends a lot of time bashing/being mevazeh Torah observance
see Darash Moshe in Lech Lecha, he says a person should put much effort into procuring a makom kevurah
I assume that you may not be sure if the earth is round ðŸ™‚
my rebbi quoted Rav Yaakov z’tl as saying to this question, “yes it’s a lack of bitachon, but who is going to pay the bills?” Rav Yaakov was a very practical person.August 28, 2011 4:11 am at 4:11 am in reply to: Earthquake + Hurricane during One Week in New York #802760
it would be worthwhile to see Halekach v’halibuv (Rav
Avrohom Schorr) on this week’s parasha-that deals with katrina
“The gum-chewing girl
And cud-chewing cow
Look quite alike
And what is the difference?
yungerman- fact, Biden didn’t say they’re terrorists, rather the behavior was “like terrorists”.
now, is this worse than calling the President of this country a socialist, a communist, someone who pals around with terrorists, is not really a citizen, hates this country, hates the military etc there’s plenty of guilt to go around- I believe that’s a fact worth notingMarch 15, 2011 3:49 am at 3:49 am in reply to: lighting shabbat candles in memory of family murdered #750104
Ainohd-lighting with having them in mind as a zchus mitzva
the makor why it should be yayin: the mishte was of yayin; the gemara connects Purim & Pesach, arba kosos are yayin so too seudas Purim! may we all be zoche to simchas Purim
as far as drinking, the mitzvah is ONLY with yayin
there are obviously different connotations as to what baal teshuva means; however, in the contemporary vernacular it refers to someone who was not shomer Torah u’mitzvos & became shomerFebruary 9, 2011 12:23 am at 12:23 am in reply to: Is it harder for Frum adults to form new relationships and make close friends? #737914
I have lived “out of town” & “in town” meeting & having good friends in both venues. could it be that that’s the concept of veahavta lrayacha kamocha?
my Rav gave a shiur to our Kehillah; in an eruv it is muttar to shovel snow; each person should consult with their own Rav on this and ANY halachic question! I can’t believe people are seeking a psak halacha in a chatroom
please take a nap…
