Thalidomide was NOT a vaccine, but a drug supposed to counteract nausea of pregnancy. Not only was it never a vaccine, it was never claimed to have been one, and, like all other new drugs, had associated risks of unknown side effects. There is absolutely no comparison. Not in composition, not in biological pathways, not in action. The basic flu vaccine has been used for decades, and every single year is modified to include the new strains of the virus. Swine flu is just another of those strains, even if more virulent and more dangerous.
How about Backaxle kadmi?
True, all who desire to learn in Kollel SHOULD
But the community should also support only those that it COULD.
Therefore, if you can afford it, learn 24/7 ad meah ve’esrim. If you want the public to suport you, while having to pay tuitions for their own many children, you better prove to it that your learning will amount to something.
What exactly do Israeli business restrictions have to do with Yiddish? At least with blue shirts there was some thin connection.
A thread started with decrying the demise of a language, after stretching itself in every possible direction, from quotes to misquotes, from stories of the languages supposed holiness to tales of holy flying horses, from sensible debates to debates about the senseless, ends with discussion of reburial in Eretz Yisroel. It definitely does appear that a jargon buried in the USA is being reinterred in the Holy Land. This is even more poetic than the language itself ever was.
One doesn’t simply disinter a person, especially if his own last wish was to be buried in a particular place. A rebbe isn’t some chair, to be cut into little pieces and moved to another country.
Smile! Your government is watching
Well behaved people rarely make history
Don’t play stupid with me, I am better at it
Be nice to America, or we’ll bring democracy to your country
Don’t worry what people think; they don’t do it very often
I know what you are thinking, and you should be ashamed of yourself
Mind is a terrible thing
If you run in front of a car, you will get tired, if behind – exhausted.
My name is also Nachman, but I don’t stutter
Very very good, or do I say wunderbar?
Far vos redst du Shtusim 🙂
Which country is the most neutral one?
Its government doesn’t get involved even in its own domestic affairs.
Which country in the most independent one?
Absolutely nothing depends on it.
Only those who are wrapped in Turkish wool Taleisim do.
They seek donations precisely because they are MEKABEL, come on!
Is there a federal penitentiary there that is realted to speaking Yiddish??
I will wear pink, to avoid going blue.
The confusion arises when an Oisvorf has an Oifruf.
Yes, unfortunately most scrubs are in blue, or a shade thereof, which will be reviled on another thread. What can you do except group therapy, but that isn’t my field.
Scrubs are far more comfy, trust me
So Lovon didn’t speak Yiddish? Go figure….
Yes Star, and I cut and sew what the mutant ones create.
Unfortunately, precisely it ISN’T good enough
Forget the shirt, as long as one LOOKS frum!
Und vos is azoi schlecht, genoi, mit lachen nor a bissel?
It’s not Rome, it’s Milan. Don’t you know ANYTHING about high fashions? And they make designer jeans there too, nice ones.
Enough of this Blue Shirt! 🙂
It’s not mekubal to go to one.
There seems to be a heter for an electrician as well, but only be’shaas had’chak and if it’s hefsed meruba.
I venture to say that the Ribono shel Olam cares a lot more about official minyanim after the latest z’man tefila, that about the nusach used, more about being not offending the public with dirty clothing and body odor, that about jeans, and more about the time spent learning, than about the language one translates the Gemara into.
Where have the priorities gone to?
A beracha from any ehrlicher Yid is worthwhile. Even a simple person’s blessing carries weight. The Kabbalistic “prescriptions”, on the other hand, need to be handled with care. One has to know the credentials of who gave it, what for, and does it in any way violate halacha. Some are efficacious and real, others are bogus and nonsensical. It pays to inquire of a talmid chacham one trusts regarding which Mekubal to go to, if at all, and after the visit – which advice to follow, and which to forget about. A kameya may seem like a harmless piece of paper, if it’s not a real one, yet, unless one knows how upright an individual wrote it and what for, one may end up playing with fire, due to all the shemos therein.
I heard both sides from different people. On the one hand, there is a halacha that one may not turn an oni away emptyhanded. This applies even if you have already spent all of your ma’aser money. Yet, a peruta suffices. However, giving a dime to a collector shames him more than not answering the door. Therefore, I heard from a most respected posek that in such a situation one should open the door, and with respect explain that one cannot give at this time, while offering the person a drink, or a snack, something to alleviate the embarrassment inherent in collecting. Even then, not turning someone away only applies to a person collecting for himself – the oni, and not a gabbai tzedaka or a collector for a yeshiva.
The second side is that giving everyone a dollar does very little, while giving let’s say all 25 to one individual carries some weight in his situation. Should one, thus, pick those whom he considers in greater need, denying to the rest. If the rest are personally poor, you have the issur of turning an oni away. We aren’t obligated to personally fully provide to any individual, while we are forbidden from not giving to real aniyim.
Therefore, giving each a dollar, explaining that you simply cannot afford more at this time, and doing so besever panim yafos, is the best way to go about it. After all, a person collecting, due to his own state, realizes that not everyone has, and will not be offended if less is given, if it is given nicely.
Why bring the Mishna, or the Ramban, when one can much easier misquote something written in modern times, taken out of context. It is harder to do so with ancient sources, although some do manage still, with myriad twisted proofs about the undead.
What do YOU think?
A turkey, in holy Yiddish 🙂
With Thanksgiving coming up, maybe we could rename this thread as “The Importance of Indik”?
No, no! He showers before every musaf, but for Yale Veyavo he uses soap as well.
Jothar, it’s also a greater mitzva to learn Torah than to devote one’s time to probe into the 18th century fashions, to attend nigh-long tishen, or to demonstrate against every little thing. However, some have a difficult time opening a sefer, and find it easier to fulfill their religious obligations through the trappings.
William Schakespeare ascribed to Julius Ceasar the infamous words – He thinks too much, such men are dangerous.
Our President is dangerous for precisely the opposite reason.
Garlic crusted nails, yummy. Adding raw onions to strengthen those sore gums, and fresh horseraddish for thicker hair roots, will definitely rank high on the local shiddush listings. 🙂
Jothar, when the mitzva of mechias zecher Amalek will resume, upon Moshiach’s arrival, won’t Yiddish have to be forgotten, as well? The same people who claim the mesorah that Germany is Amalek, can’t let go of the last vestiges of their language.
Sehe Wolffenstern, wir habben nicht gegessen die Traubenfrucht in der “heim”,……. therefore all the old world remedies worked fine, especially the non-existent ones. Bankes, leaches, cinnabar, spiked wine, and cod liver oil, for those who could afford it, enabled those people, who suurvived the childhood diseases, to live to ripe old age of 38, before succumbing to pneumonia. Better yet, they were already dressed in white.
Once you wear a colored shirt, marrying a shikse is the obvious next step.
It has nothing do do with citrus, rather 6′,7′-Dihydroxybergamottin, a compound in grapefruit, which inhibits cytochrome P450 in the liver, which is a family of proteins with extensive metabolism for many medications, that is involved. Therefore, since the usual metabolism of these compounds is inhibited, bioavailability is increased (they stay longer in the system), which can reach toxic levels, similar to overdosing.
SHOULD? Are you advocating teaching the Sefardim Yiddish, so that YOU can be connected to them? There actually IS one language that has always united the Jewry – that is the same tongue in which Hashem Yisborach spoke to us at Har Sinai, in which Moshe Rabeinu wrote the Torah, and in which we say our daily tefilos.
Not having changed our language certainly doesn’t mean HAVING adopted midieval German, inserting few juicy Hebrew phrases therein. Interestingly, at the time Yiddish was spoken by the Ashkenazi Jewry, it was exactly the same tongue that the gentiles were using. Just because we never updated its vocabulary and syntax, it doesn’t mean that its origins had anything Jewish about them, not unlike taking on the dress of Polish nobility. At the time, it was a gentile dress, and only NOW it looks so, oy, freem.
Yes college, no college, mutar, ossur…..
As long as one speaks Yiddish and carries within the BP eruv, one is OK either way. It is only when one becomes modern, forgets the Mamme Lushen, and still feels that Shmiras Shabbos applies to a safek deorayso, THEN, only then does a college education become a serious issue.
You learn Yiddish to be able to understand the German rock song that starts with “Juden, Juden, kommt nach hause”
Grapefruit juice DOES interfere with antiobiotics, especially with some macrolides, via cytochrome P450.
When it is already Shabbos in NYC, it is still daylight farther West, for real.
If this thread continues to be strung much longer, it will encompass an area greater than 12 mil square, making it posul.
On the other hand, since according to the Rambam, to be a valid tzuras hapesach, there has to be less than 10 amos between the posts, and since neither side is giving the other as much as a tefach, it may still be kosher.
The machriah should be that, even if YWN site is a reshus horabim, and although the total number of comments may go up to 600,000, the people writing them remain small in number.
I hereby proclaim that you may not rely upon the eruv of under the halachic guidelines as set forth by sammygol and that posting in the CR during Shabbos is still not allowed. Posted on behalf of the CR Moderation Panel
It surely is; and what does that have to do with what you wrote before?
How about seforim that aren’t usually available in Yeshivas.
