Tell her that unlike the other more popular religions, Judaism doesn’t believe in “saving” people because every nation has its own purpose in the world. The non jews have their own set of rules (7 mitzvot bnei noach) and as long as they follow them, then they too will be able to happily experience moshiach.September 14, 2013 11:45 pm at 11:45 pm in reply to: Where can I find Vidui with additional Aveiros? #974761

Pot doesn’t need a lid…. ?January 21, 2013 5:20 pm at 5:20 pm in reply to: Girls in Shidduchim wearing sweatshirts ? #922941

what? no way… no money… if someone signs up with a shadchan for the Israel scene because that’s where he is… and then later moves to the US … I think its pretty fair that he should be able to switch shadchanim… and if the shidduch works then then shadchan gets a nice chunk of reward money…. i don’t see any chesed from SYAS because all the real work is done by the shadchanim….October 16, 2012 7:36 pm at 7:36 pm in reply to: SawYouAtSinai Issues #934454

note his first words in that section: “minhag avoteinu vadai hu torah” so this seems to predate his writing it.
the apter rebbe died in 1825. the book was not published until 1863.
i’m not saying i’m for or against it, but this is the oldest reference to the minhag that i could find.

dont need the NY Times to tell you something that Mesilat Yesharim already discussesFebruary 26, 2012 1:15 am at 1:15 am in reply to: Machon Lev JCT jerusalem #853976
You should know that for the past few years, a business degree has been provided completely in english. Rumor has it that they will soon be providing computer science in english too.
tahini: something that many don’t know is that there is a high school on campus too. it is a very hard program to get into but students who are accepted do 5 years of high school and finish with a high school diploma and a Bachelors in Computer Science. the same degree someone would get going through the normal comp sci track post high school. so it provides a huge advantage, finishing high school at the age of 19 and also having a college degree.February 26, 2012 1:08 am at 1:08 am in reply to: Machon Lev JCT jerusalem #853975
I’m in my last year (4th year) here at JCT – Machon Lev studying Electro-Optics Engineering. There is an american program which provides some classes in english. Over the years it’s been called a few different names (E.S.P., JCT International School, T.M.M.E).
What degree are you interested in?December 26, 2011 4:49 pm at 4:49 pm in reply to: Seminary Where the good girls go #1115054
