I heard that Rav Noach Weinberg ZT”L told one of “his boys” who said it was difficult for him to give up secular music, that it’s not such an “avlah” to listen if that’s the only thing preventing him from becoming frum.
The Mishna Berura says openly that it is not allowed to learn during Chazoras Hashatz.
In addition, what kind of Kavanah can someone have if his mind is split between Davening and learning?
Yasher Koach, Red Adair.
There’s nothing wrong with reminding fellow Yidden how to act as Mentchen. I personally shop at KRM Supermarket and whenever I park down the block or see a stray cart, I bring it back to the store.October 31, 2019 7:27 pm at 7:27 pm in reply to: How much $$$ does a typical Frum family spend on groceries per week? #1796381
My family of six spends about $165 per week. Not including Yomim Tovim. But then again, we shop at KRM Supermarket (lowest prices).
Where was the cop stationed? If he/she was behind you then how could he /she know that your brights were on? Was he/she on the other side of the highway? How did he/she get to you — by crossing over the divider?
Yes, I try to be extremely makpid. Boruch Hashem for Artscroll — they designate the havarah and shva’s clearly.
Did anyone hear that it’s to scare off the Ayin Harah?
According to historical reports, Hitler, Yemach Shemo, actually commissioned the Volkswagen Corporation to build cars to suit him and the Third Reich. That’s why I chose Volkswagen.
Heargod: Part of Germany’s reparations to Israel for World War II was the export of its cars at highly- subsidized prices. So taking “advantage” of this by buying a German car is the way Israelis help Germany “make good” (if possible) on reparations. This doesn’t apply to Americans buying these cars.
Yes, Mr. Addict. Exactly.
I’m sure that 99.99% of parents, when asked, will claim that their son is mature enough to get married. I hate to break it to them, but most of them are NOT.
I encounter Beis Medrash bochurim daily and see how tremendously selfish and uncaring they are. Parents need to have a reality check when it comes to marrying off their children.
I would venture to say that your number 1 is quite universal. All frum Jews believe in that. It’s not necessarily a Lubavitch idea.November 12, 2018 10:15 pm at 10:15 pm in reply to: Is there a word in davening that you always mispronounced? #1621758
Way too many shlichei tzibbur mispronounce Hakadosh Baruch Hu’s name. It is with a cholam (Adonai), not a cheerek (Adeenai).
I believe the tzibbur is not even allowed to answer Amen when it’s mispronounced.
Yes, there are ads, including a movie theater (FEH — TRAIF!).
It is put out by folks that have NO CLUE as to what’s going on in Flatbush. Although the neighborhood is turning more frum, they insist on TV schedules, sports “star” interviews, glorifying Medinas Yisroel and plagiarizing the letters sent in to this very Coffee Room.
How long does the davening take?
Mazal Tov CTLAWYER. What’s a “Yuntif??”
I assume you mean Motzei Yom Tov Sunday night?
I’m also not looking for a full-catered meal — I see macaroons & seltzer playing a big part.
Esrog Jam is really one of the vilest, most sour tastes that I’ve ever tried.
I save the esrog and burn it with my chametz on Erev Pesach.
I don’t even see any advertisements for a concert this coming Chol Hamo’ed. Unheard of!
I’ve used both and have always gone back to bamboo poles. They seem to hold up better and, believe it or not, are easier to put up.
And what does the fellow sitting next to you in shul think of the constant metronome hocking?
Hi there, CTLawyer:
Do you mind giving free consultations to readers of The Coffee Room? Isn’t that what you went to school to have a profession? If you don’t mind, may you continue doing many more chassadim.
But, Joseph, it isn’t a law — just a suggestion.July 27, 2017 11:59 am at 11:59 am in reply to: Petira of R Meir Goldberg Administration Vaad Harabonim of Flatbush #1326371
I did some work for him at the Vaad and he was a real mentsch. He truly raised the level of kashrus in the Flatbush community. I hope that the Vaad continues in his way.
I agree 100% that curling peyos is Levush of a woman.April 23, 2017 9:52 pm at 9:52 pm in reply to: Question for those who favor vanilla over chocolate #1260587
Sweetness over bitterness.
They also changed the configuration — they’re much smaller.
I currently Norton Internet Security installed Is that any good?
I’ve been using CCLeaner. It doesn’t seem to affect the internet speed.
A little help with the locations, please.
Hey, lilmod ulelamaid: Count the number of letters in umbrella…
I really enjoy doing that – I know exactly what you mean.
I meant the night before.
But why apples?
And who said that Sherayim is allowed to be “thrown and fought over by the chassidim of the Rebbe?” It is food, after all.
I never thought that there would be so many of you out there that would agree with my assessment!
My follow-up question is, naturally: who has a dentist’s name (preferably frum and in Brooklyn) that they wholeheartedly trust? By the way, I’m also looking for a reliable, honest car mechanic.
It would probably be a chatzitzah for my tefillin shel rosh.
As I mentioned originally, places that conduct Tefillos and Limud Torah do have a Kedusha. I’m specifically talking about cemeteries and kevorim.
Let’s try to stay on the topic. The word “Zionism” doesn’t appear anywhere in my opening post. I’m just focusing in on the concept of Kedusha.June 27, 2016 8:24 pm at 8:24 pm in reply to: Are the Agudah and Rabbinical Council of America Connected? #1157877
Agudah has a more Chareidi clientele and the RCA caters to the Modern Orthodox.
Why do think you DON’T want to? Do you feel that it’s against custom? If so, then perhaps you’d feel more comfortable in a traditional, Orthodox shul.
Read about what Reb Moshe ZT”L said about shtenders in Tiferes Yerushalayim. He was very much against them.
I’m more for bein adam l’chaveiro and achudus, than some over-the-top chumra.
And how do you intend to match singles? The moderators won’t allow any inter-communication.
I think I have it — but how do I get it to you??
Do you really think that these ads will accomplish anything? If they want to drink and possibly endanger themselves, they’ll find a way, unfortunately.
There were issues raised a number of years ago. Hence, they lost nearly all of the frum clientele.
For your information, the gates have been down on the store for quite a few months now — they seem to have gone out of business.
This story is so upsetting to me. I empathize with you mazal77 – you are in the right 100%.
Regarding being oveir any issur, I’m sure that since we hold of Dina Dimalchusa Dina, the store owner is certainly wrong on that account.
If you could (or should) report the owner to the Dept. of Consumer Affairs is proof that he did something against the law. There are many sources in Chazal which discuss misleading a potential buyer.
I hope that you told the owner or manager that “he lost a customer, with a whole family of eye glass wearers.”
I’ll probably go with whoever is the Republican nominee — I’d prefer Cruz. JEWS FOR CRUZ!!
