Um, whoever decided I’d like a subtitle (esp. as that)…
No, not yet… I’d like to remain low.. (y’know what I mean?)
and besides a Rov, I think, shouldn’t be monkeying (or frogging) out here there or anywhere.
I’d prefer to remain as myself… (OH! How about “Moderator”?)
Actually people would say “Avira dEretz Yisroel Machkim” (I would know better if I’d be living there!)
But to get to the question (and fake being sincere for a change)
Yes, the OP has a real valid concern and message. I, too, know of some who went there supposedly to “shteig” and ended up.. (or should I say down).
Eretz Yisroel is the land of Am Yisroel, kedusha, inherent kedushas ha’aretz, the land chosen by HaShem to suit the needs of His people. A sincere individual, looking for shleimus and kedusha will have an easier time there. There’s a reason why all our greats had a special attraction to that land, besides for the mitzvhos connected with being and living there. Read up on Ohr haChaim – how he describes Eretz Yisroel time and again, over and over… other seforim, full with wild enthusiastic praise of chibas ha’aretz.
And yet the “opposite side”, the yetzer hara, has not thrown in his towel yet. Ze leumas ze, he works overtime, especially in situations and circumstances of potential for great “Aliya”, he does his work, cunningly… (the game’s not over yet). So b’davka in such a setting of a potential of endless aliya in Ruchnius, Torah, Yiras Shomaim, Middos, you’ll find such a powerful force pulling to the opposite!
Now, let’s take a more down-to-earth look. You send your darling bachur off to a faraway place, he knows your not gonna peek in on him tomorrow… with a bunch of his friends.. They all chip in for a “dira”… Then some more “friends” move in… Sure.. Ameich Kulom Tzaddikim… they’re all tzaddikim (’cause all it takes is ONE rotten apple), all seeking the same Aliya. Sure. Ma yaaseh haben shelo yechta… everything’s pulling him to the wrong side.. teen feelings of freedom.. “friends”.. unsupervised boarding..
Again, everything has to be weighed and all sides and circumstances considered… still, there’s nothing better than a closely supervised Yeshiva setting – 24/7. A bachur at this stage must FEEL he is accountable for each action, each minute..
I wrote earlier, you’re the only one who drives on the right side of the road there.
Well, I can’t say I’m a tzaddik.
Me? I don’t use such expressions, I’m not wild, no, not at all (oh, really?) Deep down, I’m really tame..
And do you get paid for doling out compliments, praises by the dozen?
(actually you do, from Above, and to Him you’re not at all anonymous!)
cb, (as I wrote to you once before, I’d rather not spell out your negative sounding s/n), OF COURSE you’re wanted. And needed. You’re the only you. Nobody else can be!!
Having a thread I started [closed].
Having a post I worked on [deleted] (or worse, [edited]).
Someone taking something I wrote, out of context.
Hallo?!? Where are you? (I thought the sun never sets over there)
Just wanted to tell you to be careful how you drive. A NORMAL brit drives on the wrong side. A crazybrit drives on the right side… so if you ever meet up….<oish, I’m closing my eyes in fear>, JUST BE CAREFUL.. We need you..
(whoops, I think they only want GOOD old timers)
As I wrote some time before, I have a Certificate of Normalcy. Where’s your’s?
I know EXACTLY what OP WANTED to write. Something about selling a vacuum CLEANER.
If a vacuum had dust, it wouldn’t be vacuum!!!
(and mind you, I’m not drunk!!)
drunk maybe are the people who pick up a machine and call it by its brand name – ie. ‘Hoover’ (vacuum cleaner), the famous ‘Casio’ (electronic musical keyboard), ‘Tiger’, ‘Tender’ in Israel (bus, van).
No, silly, they don’t put item names on the items. (I went out and bought myself an extra Dell that plugs into my dell. When I turn on my Dell and Dell, then click with my Dell on the file, I can print it on my Dell)
You’re supposed to know yourself what the item is. (yeah, come to think of it, I never saw a sign “CAR” on a car, , neither in the front, back, sides or underneath)
Sorry, I don’t “catch”. (I’m slow today)
Coolest mod won’t <Zapped>
How could a vacuum collect dust?
If I read through it all, you’ll reopen…?
<OK Sidi, Does this meet your approval?>
I do too.
(ps a pear of spectacles or better yet a larger screen, would reveal that his s/n is actually SiDi)
Oh.. (if I must spell it out)
I was only joking that I was only joking that I was only joking that I was only joking that I was only joking that I was only joking that I was only joking that I was only joking that I was only joking that I was only joking that I was only joking that I was only joking that I was only joking that I was only joking that I was only joking that I was only joking that I was only joking that I was only joking that I was only joki<<Endless Loop Detected>> Cancel, Ignore or Continue?
Glad they catch on!!! (finally, after three years… maybe the rest would start coming out… ever so slowly)August 17, 2014 6:58 pm at 6:58 pm in reply to: color war 2014 is here !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #1027882
Push ups… shouldn’t be hard for a froggie. Esp. a little one!
Oh, don’t worry. I don’t either.
(I was just writing that I could invent an auto-bump apparatus…)
I am in an old thread?!? (How old do you think I am?)
And I am supposed to have been eaten?
Why does any Jew want to discuss this hollerday?
Why don’t you just put kugel mix into the oven and bake it?
I could auto-Bump if you’f like. I would have to first work on it, though… Y’know, go out, buy the parts, bang ’em together… wires, dials, lights, bleepers… it would take about two weeks, but I think I could be done…
PLEASE!! Not on my….
Morbid… (it’s not chodesh elul yet)
Hey Mod, where’d you get that title from?
Bump for Sidi!August 14, 2014 4:14 pm at 4:14 pm in reply to: color war 2014 is here !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #1027859
Shopping, for me that’s not a problem. My parents see always. Anytime, anything I write… (right, Mommy?).
Count me in on the red team. I love to see RED. It get’s me turned on!!! Mad!! Wild!! RRRAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!
<mad bull escapes..>
Gamanit: What would you say about me? I generally take on all three sides of an argument.August 14, 2014 3:17 pm at 3:17 pm in reply to: Forgetting to close the fridge light before Shabbos #1039228
maybe try taping it to ON, always, even when the door is closed.
Seriously, with today’s modern equipment, one must really know exactly how it works, completely, in order to avoid Chilul Shabbos. Some sensors work by magnetic. Some, even if bulb is turned off, still causes the fan to go on or off, causes displays inside to go on. There are many makes and models to contend with, many variations.
Just like all other things… You say not for mods and it’s they who peek… (kidding, I mean frogging)
Anyways this thing was on my mind for years… pondering, dreaming, imagining what it’s like…

Oops, sorry. That’s a real war..

Mods vs. Posters (we the people)
First thing is telling US. Your best and closest friends!!!
(I think there was a thread specifically about this topic)
There is no shidduch crisis. A guy in Meshpacha said so. (problem is only for those that don’t have yet a meshpacha)
I have the weirdest cravings… I’d give myself away if I’d specify..
A real light (lofty) answer.
One shouldn’t make light, loose etc. when referring or referencing to HaShem. Just my humble thought. Honored personalities, Rabbis may have a different say. (daas froggie hepach…)
See the koach of one letz!!
LF (and accessories) is Jewish. And (in)famous.
This is so funny… Just today I was thinking of the need to make one (last, oh really) bash party here. SiDi – you beat me (ouch).August 10, 2014 6:46 am at 6:46 am in reply to: Relating the Tisha B'av message from Hashem in Today's generation #1204267
OK. Time for some fun here.
Could someone here (or anywhere) please explain to me what the “message from Hashem” in reference to this 9/11 thing has to do with being a “wake-up call for Teshuva”? The Baal Haturim is full with remozim, gematrios, roshei teivos, sofei teivos etc., yet I never found him saying “OK, that’s your wake-up call to do Teshuva”. (or better yet “I got it straight from Hashem!)
We have to do Teshuva whether or not any relation to the Churban has to do with those numbers or not. Or of Tehilim. Mixed Secular dates with Yiddish ones… I’d like to hear more of these “messages direct from Hashem” – BEFORE THEY HAPPEN.
Or is the OP trying to eliminate any notion one may have that something happening in the world is c”v coincidence. So now I know it’s not coincidence, because of these haphazard “signals” straight from above…
Oh, and now that we finally have the web, emails etc., we can finally have the “movement Hashem needs and is awaiting for…
And lastly… I don’t think it’s up to anyone to take another to task for not being able to feel the Churban. Medrash Aicha says that Rebbe Yochanan didn’t feel as much a Rabbeinu Hakadosh, since he was later on.. No one took him to task for that (we just wanna have a good time & don’t care about another persons sad situation…)
OK, we’re now at the very end of our long journey. The fact that there are those that do (or to any extent), the fact that one feels the need or want to partake in this communal national mourning, should surprise and amaze you. Ashreichem Yisroel!!
yentachaya, the coffee room is down, time to do Teshuva. It’s that simple.
Why it’s down? Some froggies got into the system.
Mod (one who edited above), I still think question borders on avak l”h. I may be wrong, I don’t know all halachos (or maybe any).
Asking for recommendations for a dentist is not l’h. If someone tries to post a negative report about a dentist it won’t go up
Sorry about your broken items (tooth, account). We had a good experience with him.
However I don’t think such questions should be allowed in the Coffee Room (or in any public domain). We just watched a production yesterday…
he asked about having this dentist fix it, not complaining he broke it
42, BROTHERS?!?!? No way!! Maybe you, I’m something.
(oh, btw I’m not a monkey, though my similarity…)
“Moshiach is COMING”
You heard it first, right over here in the Coffee Room!!
