You’re a moron.
Perhaps it would be better to spend less time worrying about the shidduch crisis and more time learning to write English properly.
Simply want to wish CTL and Mrs. CTL and family a mazal tov! Wishing you all the best!
In honor of this debate, I went into our machsan yesterday and counted the bags:
Freezer bags, small 4
Freezer bags, large 3
Regular sized grocery bags 18
Net bags 1
All the freezer bags are from various places in the states, as are some of the grocery bags (mostly from Trader Joe’s).
” And because of the spike in disease from unwashed bags, they had to build a new medical school.”
JDF007, you can’t possible expect anyone with at least half a brain to believe this silliness.
I think there are more important things going on in the world to worry about than plastic bags. Just deal with it and move on.
If it bothers you that much put a band-aid on the boo boo first, then kiss it. My kids used to want the band-aid more than anything else.
I thought the “end goal” was E”Y.
“no clue why anyone would recommend a yeshiva boy to go to Ben Yehuda area, full of pritzus.”
No clue why any yeshiva boy would be walking around looking for fast food. Isn’t he supposed to be in the b”m shteiging away? What’s wrong with the food served in the cheder ochel?January 1, 2020 8:31 pm at 8:31 pm in reply to: shalom mordechai is OUT…..BARUCH HASHEM! Its Zos Chanukah #1815947
If it was a work day, I was working.
“Why do you think some Jews did not feel it? Would the same Jews lack joy in Moshiach?” Rubashkin is not Moshiach. I think that’s a good reason right there.
I worked, and I learned a bit. Same as other nights.December 18, 2019 8:55 am at 8:55 am in reply to: Calling 311 on someone blocking your driveway is mesira #1811836
Better to just take a pocket knife and slash the tires than to call the cops.December 9, 2019 3:45 pm at 3:45 pm in reply to: Why are the liberals going to bus dangerous youths from OOT into Flatbush? #1809394
To answer the OP, because despite what you think, Flatbush does not belong to the Jews.
You say they are “probably” safe. Why risk your life on a safek?
Please, I invite you to come to the shule where I daven shacharit during the week, and ask you to tell everyone there (including the Rav) why we’re all “violating halacha” because there’s nary a jacket or hat in sight (unless it’s cold).
We didn’t have stuffed cabbage. Come to think of it, we didn’t last year, either.
I asked my doctor about the flu shot last week. Her answer: “Just like everything else, אחרי החגים !”
If you’re not in the military, you don’t salute. Standing up and standing still is all you need to do.
This thread was started by oomis, one of the people I really respected in the CR way back when. I miss her posts.

“30 year ago this was normal.”
Ha! 30 years ago this August I went out with the young lady who became my wife. She lived in Flatbush. We went out, on our first date, to Bernstein’s. (I didn’t live in NY, and that was the only place I knew.) It was a Monday night, so the place was empty. Afterwards we went over to South Street Seaport and sat and talked until some early hour of the morning. We were married the following June, and still B”H married 29+ years.
The moral of the story: there’s nothing wrong with going to a restaurant on the first date.
“The Brisker R”Y said circumstances imposed by the Israeli government upon Bnei Torah living in Eretz Yisroel may compel us to move out to chutz l’aaretz to continue our Torah life.”
That would be impossible, as other civilized countries do not put up with rioting in the streets the way the Israeli government does.
Anyone not in E”Y IS OOT!
“We once had an adom gadol for a sukkos yom tov meal, we had a bar-b-q going on a low flame, so we served hamburgers, hot dogs and bar-b-q wings. The adom gadol complained that it is not yom tov’dik.”
An adom gadol should have enough common sense not to complain about the food at a meal to which he was invited. And by the way, our minhag for last day of Pesach is to BBQ for the day seuda. We had hot dogs, hamburgers, wings, and kebobs. A nice time was had by all, and nobody complained that the food was not fit for a meal on chag.
I said a (mostly) Shabbat morning P’sukei D’zimra, and Hallel (in it’s proper place in davening) with a bracha.
A meshuloch wandered into shule this morning 10 minutes after the last minyan ended. He still got up on the bima and made a speech to the 3 people left in the shule.
“Hot dogs and hamburgers off the grill . . .”
That’s what we’re having for lunch on the last day of the chag. Chicken wings too, I think.
“How many pounds/kilos of handmade shmura matzos does everyone here buy for their family to cover the eight-day Yom Tov?”
We buy 1 kilo for the 7 day chag. I’m the only one that eats it after the first day, and I have no problems finishing all that by myself. I love hand-made shmura matza.
Why wear a suit at all? I’ve worn a suit (and tie) exactly once in the last 11 1/2 years.
Funny thing is, at Osher Ad the big plastic bottles of Kedem are cheaper than the Israeli grape juice, so that is what we use. And I did ask our LOR about this tonight, and he told me the Kedem (regular, I didn’t ask about the lite version) is fine for use all year round, including for the Seder.
I’ll take a bus to Yerushalayim. If he’s not Moshiach, I can always take a bus home.
First thing you have to do is get off the internet.
“Im confused why people proudly announce they have no filter. No Rabbanim condone that.”
For all the “chareidim” here who claim to follow this or that Rebbe, shlit”a, or this or that Rosh Yeshiva, shlit”a – none of their Rebbiem would allow their followers to be on this website, let alone be on the internet for non-parnassa reasons. So all the people on the internet, even with filters, well, that defeats the whole reason of “following a Rebbe” to begin with.March 12, 2019 11:16 am at 11:16 am in reply to: Danger in America anyone else considering moving?!?! #1693553
“Did the gedolim say to move to Eretz Yisrael? Please name them.”
The Torah says to live in E”Y. Gedolim aren’t always correct.March 9, 2019 8:47 pm at 8:47 pm in reply to: Setting up a MO girl with a serious Lakewood bochur = good idea or not? #1691786
As long as her parents have the required $100,000 check for the boy, there’s no problem.
“It’s assur to leave Eretz Yisroel for a visit.”
My parents were ill and dying, and then for the shiva,. Still going to maintain that it’s assur?
“You Zionists will really jump on any opportunity to derail a thread, won’t you?”
“It’s amazing to me that i can visit מדינת ישראל and see people that think it’s not גלות even with a pride parade going on in ירושלים
Still better to be here than there.
I have an LG 3. I think I bought it used, and I have no idea how much I paid for it. It works, that’s what’s important.
“. . . 5T may seem OOT but it really has it all from the perspective of a frum couple or family seeking to relocate but stay close to real world . . .”
You’re living in a fantasy world, my friend. The “real world,” such as it is, is not anywhere on the western side of the Atlantic. Your 5T is certainly OOT, as is Monsey, Williamsburg, Boro Park, Flatbush, Lakewood, and the list goes on and on.
It’s sad that the “frum couple or family” you mention so often treats E”Y as a spiritual Disneyland, but never gives a thought to what Hashem has written in his Torah over and over again. It’s amazing to me that I can visit the U.S. and see people read the words “וקבצנו מארבע כנפות הארץ לארצנו “, yet it apparently makes no impact.
Shwekey, Im Eshkachech.
If he’s singing it, he needs to make sure he can hit the high notes, or it ruins the song.
I’ve got about 1800 songs, and my music is always set on shuffle. I never know what’s coming up next.
I hope by now that mik5 has learned to be on time for davening!
Many years ago, I davened regularly in a largish shule. My makom was in the front. In the row in front of me were several talkers, who happened to be machers in the shule. On one Shabbat, they were talking particularly loudly. I turned around (so I was not facing them), and shushed them quietly. One of the men took exception to this, and berated me right then and there.
I changed seats the next Shabbat, and I never did move back to that spot.
Right before Rosh Hashana that year, he came up to me, apologized, and asked mechila for embarrassing me the way he did. He said he realized that he was wrong, and that he had been working on not talking during davening. He even invited me to move back to the original seat. Of course, I forgave him, but I didn’t move back to the old seat.
And by the way, to 1: There is a conservative shule down the street from where I daven in the mornings – they have well attended minyanim 3 times a day, every day. So yes, many go only 3 times a year, but there are some who go 3 times a day.
“Please, no home made stuff!”
You’ve obviously never tasted my wife’s chocolate chip cookies, have you. You’d be begging for more.
Chummus, is that better for you?
RY23, what “dirt” are you referring to?
I wanted to update my post “upthread” concerning the no longer published Minchas Yerushalayim siddur.
One of my daughters was looking through my old Coffee Room posts, and saw what I had written about this particular siddur. She took it upon herself to ask on a few Yerushalayim based Facebook groups if anyone had this siddur to sell or give away. One woman did; all my kids chipped in and had it rebound, and gave it to me as a birthday present. I was (and still am) ecstatic!
(BTW, as it turns out, I knew the woman who gave the siddur to my daughter!)February 3, 2019 11:20 am at 11:20 am in reply to: Is it healthy for yehiva bochurim to learn from a artscroll? #1672878
Poor boy learning from Artscroll will probably have less shidduchim redt to him, thereby increasing the shidduch crisis.January 27, 2019 11:41 am at 11:41 am in reply to: shopping at a new super grocery store vs the corner grocery store. #1668740
I shop at the bigger stores. The makolet will invariably be more expensive. Many of the makolets will insist on a minimum charge to use a credit card, which is in violation of their agreements with the credit card companies.
