    The voice of truth has echoed the hard truth. It is so easy to complain, criticize, berate and of course be negative. Nobody has answers, we as a community need to rally behind do good, unconditionally and no other reason. People are looking to blame the Yidden for any reason. Let us not give them that opportunity. We are accountable for our actions. At Har Sinia we all agreed and said Na’ase Ve’nishma. Let us
    Let us enter the final days of Yom Tov bikdusha ve’tahara. Daven or do not daven with a minyan, we are all Yidden. Not to judge each other but fulfill the mitzvos.
    Wishing you all A Git Yom Tov.

    Highly doubtful if you will receive any visibility on this forum or is it just rave and rant. Perhaps contact your local council person or state representative to push these ideas. It is a vicious cycle almost catch 22. However, may I point out that the good old US of A is the only country in the world where doctors pay mal- practice insurance hence the insanely high cost of medicine. Just a thought. Good luck. Have an easy fast and hopefully we can continue this conversation in Eretz Yisroel as Mashiach will have arrived and of course resolved these issues.

    I did basic training, served in one of the wars, my son, son-in-law, many first cousins, to many to count served their time in all branches of the military. Lesson one about the military, you follow orders from your superior officer without hesitation or question. You do not judge. For others who say otherwise have never served in the military or any of their branches.

    touche. while politics may indeed (hurt) food production in fact it has retarded the food growth in 99% of African countries. As a former “African” and now American, traditionally as African countries obtained their independence from their former rulers economically things became substantially worse. While there is an excellent potential to grow food, tachlis, this is not happening. Sometimes it is a good thing to learn about a subject prior to giving expert testimony.

    i wish you a goed gebenchter yor. Your mind is made up and cannot be confused with the facts. Some of us actually lost very close family (siblings) on that tragic day in case the message was not crystal. For that reason it is incumbent as a Yid to follow that path of remembrance.

    The coffee room as it states is a discussion room where is no need to shtech someone else. You have reshus to rave and rant on to your hearts content,i however will no longer dignify you with any further replies.

    again just for clarification, the loss according to simple halocho is Elul 23, hence the redundancy for the ‘second yortzeid’. I observe Elul 23 for this reason on all accounts. Perhaps you should glean from the answer and remove your hostility given the current timing on the Jewish calendar, or perhaps this has no bearing either for you.

    good luck when you have that lucky charm share it with everyone pleased. Taxes in the past 11 years have spiraled out of control and lurched forward at an amazing 150%. Only if your income had become attached to that fly away situation. Lawyers can help seriously but do do cost money and the govt is counting on you doing nothing, they are desperately short of income

    Politics is about winning and/or losing mix the the two you lose.

    Yiddishkeit is about the the observance of mitzvot. Then you win no matter what. The agendas we put forth are conditional. Judaism has no place for the this concept, it is about unconditional acceptance of the Ribono Shel Olam and the observance of the mitzvos.

    aptitude testing discerning the core competencies of the person and then using that as a catalyst to bring the next level opportunty into the equation. This should not be treated lightly as the cost of running a household appears to have just left the stratosphere and is in a new dimension. There is help available how to recognize core strengths etc and proceed on a path of caution and potential realizations to where this can go and achieve. There are many eitza gebbers out there who perhaps misguide people. This is a real problem however there are long term solutions that can work in tandem to achieve these goals. There is light at the end of the the tunnel. You must reach out to these persons in order to do that.

    has anyone heard of emotional cheating. People today are not empowered with the correct tools when transitioning from the yeshiva world to the big ugly outside world. Try anything once is the motto, consequences etc. We need some big changes in schools of thought to empower people in dealing with the outside world which needs to come from the top. Rabbi Twersky had a very controversial article recently to teach rabbonim in early detection of problem areas and redirect them to the appropriate source for kosher assistance. This is a good start, unfortunately it appears daas torah is not sufficient to save marriages.some require professional help.

    Emotional cheating is almost as bad as physical. This is more like the preamble the physical. Remember if you walk into a fish shop, only to browse and do not buy the smell remains on you irrespective.

    So people make conscience choices that you do not expose yourself in harms way, no matter good your marriage is. A malach is perfect, we humans, bene odom, are not. Try rolling the dice in roulette, is this really any different?

    We ask H-shem everyday not to put through nisyonos, don’t create them either.

    rebdoniel; my mother A”H, two months ago, always looked for the positive

    in someone or a situation. If you cholila began to talk loshon hora

    about someone she would very politely change the topic so not even by remiza would you understand. It is time in these forums people start to see the good in others and not all this negativeness. I am appalled that Yidden shomrei toira & mitzvois are stooping to these low levels and of course to degrade themselves. consult your local Rov regarding this matter and I am quite sure his opinion of how you express yourself will perhaps surprise you. Torah Yidden try always to look for the good in other Yidden So in conclusion if it is okay with you please raise the bar here a notch or two or three.

    the dynamics of yiddishkyte permits different interpretations providing we do not transgress halocha. Most yidden it appears besides having so many opinions, hizharu bedivraichem, so that ultimately you will not be held responsible for encouraging them to stray from yiddishkyte. We learn from our learned sages that before you ‘rebuke’ someone, positive reinforcement needs to be first advocated and then gently invoke what you must. So many yidden are on the edge, it does not take much to ‘push’ them over.
