    Is this not a contradiction:

    yichusdik: They are usually very lean and therefore can be tough and dry, especially if overcooked. …which also means they cook quickly…

    musictomyears: Cook on lo-medium flame for a couple hours until tender.

    Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit.

    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    Philosophy is wondering if that means ketchup is a smoothie.

    Also, Avraham Fried sang a song about playing with fire, how your soul is a heavenly fire. Was it ever recorded for an album?

    Playing with Fire has been recorded and released (song 7) on Avraham Fried’s latest album, Bring The House Down.

    Fried writes in the album booklet:

    To all those who have been asking and waiting patiently for this song, here it is. Let your heavenly fire keep you warm. Share the warmth with others.

    Composed and Lyrics by Avraham Fried

    Lyrics to Playing with Fire performed by Avraham Fried joined by Bentzi & Shmuel Marcus (8th Day) at the Young Israel of Kew Gardens Hills concert 2008

    There’s a place in your heart deep within

    known as the Kodesh HaKodoshim

    There’s an alter there

    With a heavenly fire burning

    That’s why you’re always yearning

    That’s why you’re always yearning

    This fire takes you higher if you

    let it burn

    Inspire your desire to

    live and learn

    If you ignore it

    and don’t absorb it

    brother, your playing with fire

    Your heavenly fire

    Its there to take you higher

    and higher

    and higher

    and higher

    This fire takes you higher if you

    let it burn

    Inspire your desire to

    live and learn

    If you ignore it

    and don’t absorb it

    brother, your playing with fire

    Your heavenly fire

    Its there to take you higher

    Learning Torah, lights the flame, watch it glow

    Come in out of the dark, lights the spark, watch it glow

    A Mitzvah too has the power to ignite

    Your soul down deep inside

    Your soul down deep inside

    Beneath the light, in a room, oh so dark

    Don’t look too far, know right there, in your heart

    There’s an alter there with a heavenly fire burning

    That’s why your always yearning

    That’s why your always yearning

    This fire takes you higher if you

    let it burn

    Inspire your desire to

    live and learn

    If you ignore it

    and don’t absorb it

    brother, your playing with fire

    Your heavenly fire

    Its there to take you higher

    and higher

    and higher

    and higher

    This fire takes you higher if you

    let it burn

    Inspire your desire to

    live and learn

    If you ignore it

    and don’t absorb it

    brother, your playing with fire

    Your heavenly fire

    Its there to take you higher

    There’s a place in your heart deep within

    known as the Kodesh HaKodoshim

    There’s an alter there with a heavenly fire burning

    That’s why your always yearning

    That’s why we’re all returning

    Just found this:

    After “sitting around” for a while, a song about 9/11 composed by music superstar Avraham Fried has been released.

    By COLlive reporter

    Jewish music superstar Avraham Fried has commemorated the 10th anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks with releasing a preview of a new song in solidarity to the families of the victims.

    The song, which Fried composed, was originally meant to be included in his latest album, but plans fell through and instead it was presented at a recent HASC concert and was arranged by Yisroel Lamm.

    “I felt it was important to write something positive,” Fried told COLlive.com. “If 19 people can create so much negativity, imagine what we all can do to change the world for the better.”

    He said the song has been “sitting around” for a while, and he plans to rerecord it for an upcoming English-Yiddish album.

    “After tragic events the Lubavitcher Rebbe always encouraged Jewish people to look for that glimmer of light and hope and make the correct conclusion,” Fried told music site Shlager.net which posted the recording this week.

    “That is what the song is actually about. One day in September changed our lives. It was no doubt a day of blinding darkness, however, we have the power to dispel it. It is in our hands,” Fried said.

    LYRICS:

    Some people say the world has gone mad

    Evil has stolen the day

    Some people say ‘Just throw in the towel’

    I don’t feel that way

    ‘Cuz every good deed that you do

    And every kind word that you say, has a way,

    has a way to change the world

    Chorus:

    There is so much we can do to make this world,

    A kinder better happier place

    There is so much we can do to change the world

    Let’s change the world today

    That day in September changed our lives

    The darkest day by far

    Oh, they broke our heart but woke up our soul

    We’ll show them who we are

    ‘Cuz we are towers of light

    And we have the power to do what is right

    Let’s illuminate the night

    Chorus

    Don’t need a reason or season my friend

    You don’t need fortune or fame

    Go out of your way, make someone’s day

    Now that’s the name of the game

    ‘Cuz we are towers of light

    And we have the power to do what is right

    Let’s illuminate the night

    Chorus

    Some comments on this post say that this song is an old camp song (Camp Emunah)

    Was the song ever released on an album?

    Also, Avraham Fried sang a song about playing with fire, how your soul is a heavenly fire. Was it ever recorded for an album?

    By the HASC Concert 24, in the finale, Avraham Fried sings a song with the following words:

    Some people say the world has gone mad, evil has stolen the day.

    There is so much we can do to make this world a kinder, better, happier place.

    Anyone know what song this is and where I can find it (album)?

    Orchestra will eat when guests have their main course and the keyboard player will provide soft background music that allows conversation at the dining tables.

    It is nice that you are taking into consideration the band’s eating needs. But is a second keyboard player really necessary? Have the orchestra play some prerecorded music (their own or one of the many “relax disks” out there.)

    The orchestra doesn’t need the full dinner service to eat either. Give them some time to eat and take care of their needs and get back to doing the job they were hired to do. They can even eat during the chuppa and take a 20 minute break for Marriv during the Simcha.

    In my opinion, hiring another player just for the meal is a waste of money.

    malei daas torah

    i heard the same guy wrote “hava nagila”

    From Wikipedia:

    Abraham Zevi Idelsohn, a professor at Hebrew University, began cataloging all known Jewish music and teaching classes in musical composition; one of his students was a promising cantorial student, Moshe Nathanson,[1] who (with the rest of his class) was presented by the professor with a 19th-century, slow, melodious, chant (niggun or nigun) and assigned to add rhythm and words to fashion a modern Hebrew song.[citation needed] There are competing claims regarding Hava Nagila’s composer, with both Idelsohn and Nathanson being suggested.[2][3]

    The niggun he presented has been attributed to the Sadigurer Chasidim, who lived in what is now Ukraine,[2] which uses the Phrygian dominant scale common in music of Transylvania.[citation needed] The commonly used text was probably refined by Idelsohn.[4] [5][original research?]

    In 1918, the song was one of the first songs designed to unite the early Yishuv [Jewish enterprise] that arose after the British victory in Palestine during World War I and the Balfour Declaration, declaring a national Jewish homeland in the lands newly liberated from Turkey by the Allies and entrusted to Britain under the Treaty of Versailles.[citation needed] Although Psalm 118 (verse 24) of the Hebrew Bible may have been a source for the text of “Hava Nagila”,[citation needed] the expression of the song and its accompanying hora (“circle”) dance was entirely secular in its outlook.[citation needed]

    Get a OnePlus 2 or Moto X Style or Play. Great specs (comparable to the major flagships coming out), brand new and half the price of a iPhone or Samsung flagship phone.

    The decision to go Apple or Android is one you have to figure out yourself. They are two different operating systems and depends which you prefer. A die-heart Android fan will say Android and a die-heart Apple fan will say Apple.

    On April 18th, 1930, the BBC famously informed listeners: “Good evening. Today is Good Friday. There is no news.”


    Did you know?

    The following is from daysoftheyear.com:

    Date:

    11th Sepeach year

    Turn off the TV and radio, unhook from the web, and cancel the newspapers. If the weather really matters to you, look out of the window, and, be honest, when was the last time a traffic report actually turned out to be useful?

    As far as I can determine, No News Is Good News Day was set for September 11th long before 2001.

    …even if you have a modem/wi-fi card installed. You have to connect to the internet, or you have no internet access.

    That is not necessarily true. If the computer has a WiFi card installed it is fairly simple to connect to any open networks in the close vicinity.

    However, most older computers do not come with WiFi cards. Laptops, notebooks and tablets do. So if you get a desktop computer make sure it does not have a WiFi card.

    Please note: even if the computer does not have WiFi, anyone (spouse, children) can buy a USB Wireless WiFi Adapter for as little as $5 and can connect to open networks in your area.

    The best bet is to install a program that will block any Internet access.
