It is well known in anthropological circles that Aschkenaz was the Hebrew word for Germany. Aschkenazic jews in fact, hardly migrated to turkey at all. Turkish jews never spoke yiddish. yiddish is well known to be a corruption of the german language. The yiddish language itself mutated into various dialects as jews migrated from germany to Poland, Russia, and the other European countries.
The term Aschkenaz is hebrew for germany. The jews of turkey are sefardic heritage.
I met my wife on Rosh Chodesh Av. I asked the mashgiach of Torah Vodas, Rav Wolfson what to do. He said if she doesn’t understand, then she isn’t what you’re looking for. Of course she understood. And we got engaged on Rosh Chodesh Elul.
The term Gaon is being used very loosely as a title. The minimum knowledge should be all Shas with all Rashi, Tosefos, Maharsho. All Chumash with Rashi ans Ramban. All Rambam, all Tur and all Shulchan Orech. Thoroughly.
THERES NO ISSUR OF HAVING ONE SINK. ITS VERY INCONVENIENT.
each chasidic sect has different ways of referring to previous rebbes. Ger for example called the Imrei Emes, the rebbe of Poland, frierdeker rebbe until the Bais Yisroel was niftar. In Satmar Rabbeni Yoel is just called the rebbe zl or rabbeini. There isn’t a set name anywhere. Its just something that pops up.
after all these comments, i’m still trying to figure out what i said wrong. it seems all bear me out. ok thats the way of this room, keep posting. am i ok now without caps.
Fruits and veggies which as raw usually have bugs, require a hechsher that they were washed for bugs. Blueberries do not have bugs. The general production method of freezing doesnt come near anything treif.
ALMOST ALL THE GEDOLEI YISROEL HAVE GIVEN STRONG APPROVALS FOR WHAT ARTSCROLL HAS ACCOMPLISHED. THEY HAVE OPENED UP SO MANY AREAS OF THE TORAH THAT WERE VIRTUALLY CLOSED TO THE MAJORITY OF KLAL YISROEL.

THE DONKEY TOO WAS REWAREDED FOR ITS CARRYING HUGE LOADS OF EGYPTIAN LOOT, HELPING THE JEWS LEAVE EGYPT.

RICE CAKES ARE PROCESSED IN A WAY THAT RETAINS THE PHYSICAL STATUS OF RICE, WHICH IS MEZONOS. THE AFTER BROCHO IS BOREI NEFOSHOS, NOT AL HAMICHYA. WHEAT CAKES ARE PROCESSED AND BECOME HO’ADAMA. ITS LIKE EATING WHEAT KERNELS.
RASHI NEVER ATE MASHED POTATOES OR ANYTHING POTATO. THE POTATO DIDN’T COME TO EUROPE UNTIL 1500 FROM SOUTH AMERICA. NEVER ATE YAMS EITHER. OR TURKEY. DEFINITELY NEVER HAD SNICKERS CAUSE ITS NOT CHOLOV YISROEL.

the original concept of a college education, liberal arts and sciences, was to give the individual a well rounded education as a member of a human society. it was not meant as a stepping point to a job or profession. that was in another educational setting, such as law school or medical school.
try mashing sardines with chopped onion and olive oil. on crackers with egg salad. and pop in a cherry tomato. theres a healthy lunch.
according to the chasam sofer, moshiach won’t be an obvious living tzadik but rather a dark horse type. he says that the geula is supposed to be like yetzias mitzrayim. moshe wasn’t the obvious person. after all, he was an egyptian prince, king of ethiopia and married a shiksa. thats moshiach? so keep your eyes open.
The so-called chasidishe and very strict hashgochos all rely completely on OU supervision of their ingredients. Their supervision is that they rely on the OU and just make sure that the firm buys only OU ingredients. The OU’s level of supervision is unmatched by the others.

Telz yeshiva in america was founded by rav eliyahu meir bloch ztzl, son of the telz yeshiva rosh hayeshiva maharil bloch ztzl. together with his brother in law rav chaim katz ztzl. it was founded according to the spirit and style of the lituanian telz yeshiva and is still operated in that path. telz chicago and riverdale are off shoots, also operated along the original telzer deredch by telzer talmidim of rav bloch and rav katz. although cleveland isnt as big as it used to be, chicago and riverdale are thriving yeshivos, among the best in america. those are facts. anybody cotradict that is basically complete not in the know of what telz is.
TRY THE BAND “BLUE”. THEY PLAYED VERY WELL AT MY GRANDSONS WEDDING LAST WEEK
Nusach Sefard has Hodu before psikei deimra because in the Beis Hamikdosh they said Hodu after the korbon tomid but before the schachris davevening. Nusach Ashkenaz considered Hodu as part of the Zimra as part of Hodu is from tehilim. Instead of just posting, why don’t you look this up?
the telshe yeshivos in america are indeed direct successors to lithuania. the sirit of telz litte is alive and well.
because an esrog is taken for 7 day mitzva and chosson is for 7 days
telz chicago is one of the best yeshivos in america, very quietly. the rosh yeshivas shlita are gedolei yisroel, baalos midos tovos, tzaddikim mamesh.

hey all you misnagdim. anything chasidim do is strange to you. apples are considered holy cause it says chakal tapichin kadishin, holy apple orchards. throwing the aplles shows an extra measure of love to the chasidim. you misnagdim will never understand this.
They enjoy the spiritual feeling of being with the shechina.
In the time of the gemorah, women in general, in all socities, were considered second class. However, the Zohar says that women have less mitzvos because they are on a higher spiritual level than men. Although the Torah is eternal and Torah life is the way we go, times and cultures change. In the early 20th century, girls were not happy with their place in society. They felt empty. This caused terrible departures from yiddishkeit. Sarah Schnierer saw this and recognized the need for educating Jewish girls in Torah so that they would fel meaningful and that yiddishkeit would be relevant in their lives. All the Torah gedolim of Poland and Lithuania and Germany agreed with her and gave her strong support, especially the Gerrer Rebbe ztzl. Result: we have generations of Torah true girls becoming strong supporters of Torah learning. Yes, women can have their own schar for learning Torah.

So eat meat and drink wine. Or go to Century 21 and buy yourself stuff. I’m a man and buying stuff always makes one happy.
Astroland, kids love rides. Central Pk zoo, great for adults and kids. Watch them feeding the seals. Watch feeding the penguins. Or you could take your kids to the beis medrash and learn. OK OK so I made a joke.
an esrog should be kosher period. if you start looking for the best of the best, then hashem looks into your neshomo to see if you are perfect. i just make sure that i see nothing bad with my plain eye and hope that hashem looks at me and says, not bad, have a great year.October 14, 2016 12:12 pm at 12:12 pm in reply to: Do you think Jewish men should start practicing polygamy again? #1190846

probably the only ones who really ready themselves for the yom hadin and do teshuva, are the ones who have never sinned at all during the year. the rest of us poor shmos just sit around waiting. but in the end, hashem will forgive us all and bring a blessed good year to everybody. kol yisroel yesh lohem olam haboh letova ulebrocho.

lavon, father of rochel and leah. spoke up ahead of his father.
The Satmar rebbe felt that the gemora and medrash say that the jewish nation made 3 oaths after the beis hamikdosh was destroyed. one ws that there wouldnt be a medina in eretz yisroel. the problem was that the early zionists were actually apikorsim, like hertzl. they were purely cultural nationalists. that’s why the european gedolim instituted an agudas yisroel. to work on behalf of frum jws and to counteract seculr zionism.
ou.org has excellent shiurim online. try rabbo moshe elefant daf yomi shiur. terrific.
Many people who know davening by heart, especially shemoneh esrei, still daven in a siddur because seeing the words, the holy words, aids in concentration. look at the words as you say them and think about the words, the prayers and who you are standing in front of.
you barely know arithmatic and you want to study advanced calculus? zohar wasn’t made for just anybody, no matter what the so called kabalah experts tell you. have you studied all of shas gemora 15 times yet? do you know tanach by heart? don’t fool yourself. go back to basics and learn chumash, navi, gemorah, medrash, halachos.

SADLY TO SAY, MANY OF US DON’T GIVE ENOUGH TIME TO DAVEN WITH KAVONO OR AT LEAST SOME THOUGHT. ALL OF SHACHRIS IS IMPORTANT IN SOME WAY. BH I’M RETIRED AND CAN DAVEN WITH A MINYAN THAT DAVENS AT A DECENT SPEED SO I CAN SOMETIMES PUT SOME THOUGHT INTO IT. I ALMOST ALWAYS SAY FULL KARBONOS BOTH SHACHRIS AND MINCHA. BH.
i find it interesting that a website with the name “yeshiva” should be anything but yeshivish. there isnt a thing yeshivish in this site. the coffee room itself is full of loshon hora and inane subjects and some plainly heretical. so much for yeshiva world.
