obviously it looks like Mishpacha. The one who started was the editor for Mishpacha until very recently. I would love to see it though does anyone know if its sold in Israel?October 27, 2010 8:59 pm at 8:59 pm in reply to: What Product, Device, Etc Would You Like To See Made? #704294

Gateshead Old is by far the best seminary out there. It is probably also one of the oldest.
First of all the fact that it is a three year course as opposed to one year makes you internalize what you learn in a very storng way. It becomes part of your life as oppose to floating on a cloud somewhere for a year and then crashing down to earth.
Also most seminaries stuff you with lots and lots of knowledge but Gateshead actually trains you how to think, it changes your way of thinking forever gives you a deeper life!
They also teach you to really appreciate Torah, not to just want to marry a “learning boy” but to actually appreciate every minute that your husband is learning, to really feel that every word of Torah is priceless!
Also a tremendous advantage is that your teachers are all Rabbanim. not ladies. and chushuva rabbanim at that.
and as someone mentioned you can create exceptionally meaningful relationships being that you live with these girls in a dorm for three full years.
If you are an intelligent young woman and would like more than just a wonderful experience, you want a better quality of life, then old gateshead seminary is a great choice.
good luck getting in.October 19, 2010 11:37 pm at 11:37 pm in reply to: Limericks! #1221144
I made these up many years ago when I was in school.
Let us wonder for arguements sake
why ___ _____(fill in name of school) had so many rules to make
for if there were none
It would be no fun
for there would be no rules to break!
Mommy had 12 children too many
quite often she whished she had not any
when they jumped on her “Kup”
she just got fed up
and sold each one for a penny!June 24, 2010 10:06 pm at 10:06 pm in reply to: Making Stuff Up and Sources #687985
this is a very inappropriate topic to be discussing in an open forum like this. It does not belong on YESHIVA world news. Moderator I think you should close and delete this thread. Keep in mind there are some young teenagers who come to the coffee room too. although everyone is anonymous it’s completely inappropriate and untzniusdig to be discussing your marriages.June 20, 2010 12:31 pm at 12:31 pm in reply to: Please Help! #687294
this post is to bring this topic back to the top of the list! also you should really send out an email to whoever you know asking them to vote and to pass it on to as many people as possible I think that is the best way to get the message to the most people. I will do that too.June 18, 2010 11:34 am at 11:34 am in reply to: Making Stuff Up and Sources #687885
bp totty: the guest was actually Reb Meir Shapiro. reb Meir said he will only come if the Rebbetzin does not eat in the same room. The chofetz Chaim said he will ask his Rebbetzin. She was not Maskim, so he said she comes first.June 17, 2010 9:49 pm at 9:49 pm in reply to: What's going on in Emmanuel? #686738
Actually the school is a chinuch atzmai school. Chinuch Atzmai is partially funded by the gov. not fully as a compromise that they should be allowed to run the schools how they wish and so that their schools are not public schools which have to accept anyone who applies.
Also it’s not an issue of the gov funding. these parents took their girls out of the school and sent them to bnei brak but the court is forcing them to go back to their original school.June 15, 2010 3:37 pm at 3:37 pm in reply to: Please Help! #687283

I find it very difficult to read and it’s really getting annoying. please do something about it.
it’s totally perfectly normal for her not to be crawling yet, health clinics (especiallly tipat chalav in israel) always get you nervous dont worry… even if it’s a drop slow which i happened not to think it is, theres certainly no need for therapy yet. each child at its own pace,December 16, 2009 11:40 am at 11:40 am in reply to: Most Moving Jewish Song In Your View #1096804
Mama Rochel. (Aby Rottenberg, i think) the tune but especially the words are absolutely gorgeous. (I’m not sure this is the most heartfelt etc song ever produced but on the spot its the first one i can think of)December 16, 2009 11:36 am at 11:36 am in reply to: Crazy Shidduch Story #683740
mod 42: “he wasn’t interested in a boy for her just because he was known as the best learner in his Yeshiva.” there are many reasons to want a real serious learner for your daughter other than because he’s known to be the best. To be married to a real talmid chacham is a tremendous zechus (of course he also has to “treat his daughter well and be a good ehrliche Jew who will build a Torah home”)
EDITEDDecember 15, 2009 7:45 pm at 7:45 pm in reply to: Low Profile #670200
I don’t think the issue is only chilul hashem, there is certainly an inyan of keeping a low profile even if what you’re doing is perfectly ok I’m not sure what the mekor for this is [I can try to find out) but when we are in Galus we are not supposed to do anything which might anger the goyim unless of course it’s a specific mitzva. Dressing like a frum yid probably goes into the catagory of a mitzva and is a personal thing which can not be compared to lighting a public menorah, there’s no reason a goy should be angered by the way a yid dresses, however a huge menorah is inescapable and can be very annoying to a goy to see juadiasm glaring in his face like that. besides that this is something new and has never been done in history before certainly not by any gedolim whereas dressing like a yid has always been a part of yidishkeit.
(most of us even light indoors today because in Europe the goyim were hostile towards us and so it wasnt safe to light outside, Kal VaChomer a huge public Menorah.)December 3, 2009 11:08 am at 11:08 am in reply to: Attention Mods #1048983
what makes you close a thread?
we frum yidden believe in Torah SheBal Peh there are hundreds of Rishonim and Achronim who explaim all these situations in ways you probably wouldn’t even understand. It’s a bit hard to explain things through writing in a forum like this but I seriously recommend that you go to a rav and have these things explained to you Al Pi Hashkafas Hatorah!
Rabbi of Berlin I’m not sure what so hard about understanding that people’s nisyonos are on different levels. as you climb in your avoidas Hashem your nekudas habechirah changes and things that may have been difficult till now are not a nisayon anymore, and that doesnt make you any less human. so saying that the yetzer hara of the avos was different than yours just means they were greater tzaddikim than you. Does that sound too close to apikorsus too? If you still don’t get it then i give up!
Bein Hasdorim: Thanks,
Pashuteh Yid: please reread what I wrote: “if you think you have any concept of the yetzer hora of either Yakow Avinu or Yehuda….” I didnt say they didnt have a yetzer hora. every person’s yetzer hara is according to their level. a simple example is if lets say you talk about the yetzer hara regarding kavana in Tefilla, for a regular person it would mean maybe concentrating on the words as best as we can, for a great gadol it might mean having all the perfect kavanos of each shem Hashem according to pshat drash and kabalah… or transcending this world entirely and not hearing or noticing anything at all outside of their tefila… whatever, get the point?
“Chas V’Shalom to even consider that Yaakov Avinu did not take looks into account. There’s a reason why it’s mentioned and there’s a reason why looks are taken into account”
are you such a big Talmid Chacham that you know the “reason why its mentioned”, or are you quoting that from some kind of reliable source? BP totty said a really valid point that many people seem to be missing, I’m not sure where you guys learnt how to understand Torah so superficially that you can make assumptions based on your own levels. Feif Un:”However, that doesn’t mean the yetzer hara wasn’t there in those days. Look at Yehudah and Tamar!” if you think you have any concept of the yetzer hora of either Yakow Avinu or Yehuda then you’re bordering on apikorsus!
Tamazball: “and of coarse yaakov avinu married rachel fo her looks, ” according to reform rabbis you might be right….
I actually do agree that its important to like the way you’re spouse looks, but wether or not this can be deduced from these pesukim can only be determined based on reliable Mefarshim(and talmidei Chachamim who know how to learn them!)November 25, 2009 8:15 pm at 8:15 pm in reply to: Slideshows/Presentations #1016236
It can be done easily with microsoft power point(and with windows movie maker too, however i found that dificult to work with) but maybe other programs can do it even nicer.
if there is a reliable mekor for a certain segula then what’s the question? the idea of segulos in general is certainly not made up although many of the present day segulos are. but either way the best segula is to keep the mitzvos, work on ourselves and daven. I once heard a rav say “if the 613 mitzvos would’ve been written as segulos, then everyone would keep them”! people today are certainly too much into segulos cuz it seems like an easy way to get what you want, today everything is about getting the easiest way (Kosher, Parve,and Mezonos)November 8, 2009 12:51 pm at 12:51 pm in reply to: Jew V.S Muslim #671416

Thanks everyone, I’ll let you know if anything works out
the city mini is great and not too expensive. it’s compact and lightweight and folds really easily and rides very smoothly. I have it and am really happy with it. it costs $219November 4, 2009 12:33 pm at 12:33 pm in reply to: A Job in Israel? Any Ideas #684265
Thanks everyone, I’m listening to all your ideas… but so far nothing is right for me. Yeah ambush you really do need creativity that’s what i’m asking you for some creative ideas… Starwolf, I learnt computer programming a couple of years ago, not that i remember much of it though.October 29, 2009 8:48 pm at 8:48 pm in reply to: Tznius Support Group PLEASE WOMEN ONLY, even reading #665273
by the way a great idea for open necks is a bobby pin! you make a seam at each side and stick in a bobbby pin to hold it, I’m not sure how clear that is but if you get what i mean it’s much neater than a safety pin and it’s not a problem with getting the shirt on and off
