As Flatbush Guy said
I really wanted to attend camp, as I had done for a number of summers and really wanted to be a counselor. However, the Elul zman that year was starting on August 10th and it was impossible for me to get a job. I was so devastated. I always looked forward to camp during the year, and it really brought out the best in me. I had an opportunity to spend a summer without seeing any chilul shabbos. It was an environment of Kedusha in the highest form. However, I could not get a job and leave two weeks left to the second half. That summer, my friends and I floated. We davened at all hours, sometimes even beyichidus. We went up to Toronto for a few days. Then we spent a few days in bungalows of our friends, barbecuing each night. As I look back, I am disgusted at myself.
So camp and Yeshiva overlapped. So what should Bochurim do? Go on trips/programs like SEED etc.? No, can’t do that (even Flatbush Guy who did it was disgusted by what he did)
So, should they go to camp/take the job and skip the first two weeks of Yeshhiva?? I can already hear the yelling and screaming from Roshei Yeshhivis, Rabbonim, Rabbeim, Parents, YWCR Posters and many others.
So I ask you (including Flatbush Guy) what do you want Bochurim to do during the summer? Sit in the Beis Medresh all day? They need a break the same way (or maybe even more then) a buissness man needs a break.

You have a serious issue. I suggest you see a therapist and get some pills to help you with this issue.
By the way, its Yosef, Moshe and Dovid
Many of the Gedolim today probably watched it when they were kids! I know a really good Rebbe in a really good Yeshiva (when I say really good,I mean a big Yeshiva in Flatbush) who would sometimes sing songs, like, We’re off to see the wizard etc. in class…
Plain old tea with lots of sugar is just perfect

Thanks for the very nice welcome!
The little I know, if you only know a little, then I must know almost nothing because I never knew that. Thanks!
I say Al Tira, but not because its my Minhag. I just say it because its there. However, my father told me he says it too, so I guess it IS my minhag!
The Wolf, thanksb for the good laugh! I love you!
About saying Good/Gut Shabbos after Mincha:
By Shabbos Mincha, we say Tzidkoscha which contains 3 pesokim of Avelus because at that time, Yaakov (I think, or maybe it was Yosef. Will check later), Moshe and Dovid were Nifter. This is why on No Tachnun days we don’t say Tzidkoscha, because its a sign of Avelus. This is where the minhag of not saying Gut Shabbos after daveningMincha and saying Tzidkoscha. So on a Shabbos when its not said, youbcan say Gut Shabbos.
About greeting people with hello or hi, in Eretz Yisroel everyone says Shalom, which means hello (as well as goodbye, peace, a name, Hashem’s name and more…)
And about between Shabbos and Motzei Shabbos (or anytime really) how about Ah Gutten Tomid (A Good Always)!
Ah Gutten Tomid!
On youtube there are some very good videos about what to do and not to do if your pulled over or cops want to search you or your house. Also theres a video about never talking to the police (and when he says NEVER, he means it!). Very informative stuff! Check it out…
Nad, never break the law, of course! (But even if you NEVER, NEVER do ANYTHING wrong, you can still get pulled over._
