    In myshul they had a similar maysa.

    A guy was saying kaddish and someone yelled ” don’t answer, it’s not our minhag”

    I can start you with bmg.

    They’re a makom Torah, not a yeshiva

    Ppl cone from all over to learn there.

    Very little hashkafa involved

    I have a better question,

    How do you tell sometimes children that their parents are misbehaving in shul and in social settings?

    This is probably the more common problem

    Do you know anything about the yeshiva to be saying that?

    Other yeshivos in Brooklyn that one might consider yeshivish are pretty bad.

    Do you know anyone who went there or are you just hearing rumours from the neighbors who are upset about their new building?

    Although sometimes i try to say good shabbos to ppl, it is not mandatory.

    I’ve been in Brooklyn, queens, Chicago, and all the communities are the same, you get some who say it some who don’t.

    I personally think that if the person is a stranger there is no reason to greet them.

    Shabbos shouldn’t really make for a difference in getting ppl.

    I would never have dated a cc guy either. But then i was redt to a guy from they’re lighter satellite yeshiva called Ma’ayan Hatorah. He’s working, going for his master’s, and sitting and learning 3 sdarim a day.

    I think this one might work, and would suggest it for that girl you were talking about.

    It’s uncommon for a woman to smoke because they would have to give it up for a pregnancy. Men don’t have that problem.

    So we shouldnt do kiruv. They might not like the torah or mitzvos

    We all realise that if 1 single person was inspired and eventually became frum (even if the shabbos just started the process, and he was mekarev 50 years later), the entire concept is worth it.

    Sometimes that “feel good” matziv just sets the tone.

    So yes. There is probably absolutely noone lined up after havdalah to meet the rabbi, but in a couple (maybe even 10, 20, or even 30) years. You never know

    The yeshivos giving off for bein hazmanim is a direct result of the culture we live in. So you can blame the culture we live in.

    The culture we live in is based on our leadership in this world. So you can blame the potus.

    The potus is a direct result of muslims. So you can blame the attacks on the muslims.

    There is also a much shorter route. The attacks were made by the muslims. And therefore blame it on them.

    It depends what your goal is:

    Do you want to get him out of the house? Than yes

    Do you want to teach him life skills? Than tahkamamash dad mayne had the right idea

    But if youre just doing it cuz youre bored than there are other ways to fill your time

    these days there are actual chassidim but there are, unfortunately, also fake “chassidim”. These are the guys that are completely litvish except they dont wanna eat in a sukkah on shemini atzeres and the like. (“Oh were chassidish, dont worry”)

    And you would be right if i went ahead and started changing the gemora. But were talking about great people who heard shiur and though, based on his knowledge of his rebbes style, thought it was one way and was then proved wrong. It happens on a much lower level every day in our yeshivos

    Obviously one has to go to shul even in the rain.

    By “does behab” you probably mean that the tzibbur does behab, because no individual actually does it.

    Most of the velt is burnt out of selichos already

    The point is to tell the person your not ignoring them.

    Were i live there is no such law. Dina dimalchusa dina is out the window. Therefore why pick one thing that ppl do ti harm others, there are more, getting smartphones, making lavish bar mitzvahs…

    And you answeres your own question.

    The rabanim dont say anything because if people need it, they might not want to do it because the rabanim said no.

    Even though they should go!

    I am not arguing that point. The problem is that calling it “adorable” and adding the “le” at the end is making me barf.

    Let me guess, you used to walk 20 miles to the schoolhouse at the top if the hill barefoot and you cant understand why a kid nowadays cant do the same.

    As any good gathering of zeidies would say “kids nowadays”

    This is not a question for the cr. some of my friends continue to FULLY support their children, while others do less and less. Its up to you. My opinion to your chinuch is irrelevant.

    I love when old people come on and comment about things like this.

    They expect all of us to believe that when they were waiting in an airport or waiting room they did “productive” things.

    Bunch of garbage, they just read the magazines in the rack.

    They didnt make conversation with total strangers either.
