It’s sort of like asking how does Hashem control nature, aren’t there intermediaries. Yes. That is “how” Hashem does it. But our human terms do not suffice to”explain” G-d.December 11, 2016 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm in reply to: What does it mean to be a real Jew? #1198082

I have figured out several people on the CR based on only a few details. You have to assume that minor details are made up to disguise who the person is. Usually the major details are correct, as well as details that the person deems insignificant.November 29, 2016 12:07 am at 12:07 am in reply to: Is Israel Safe #1196719

Just be glad that there are many minyanim.November 29, 2016 12:05 am at 12:05 am in reply to: Shidduchim and overweight girls #1196181
The true answer is, yes many boys will say no on weight.
however, I have plenty of married friends who were overweight. Or who took medication, or who had a genetic issue, or whose parents were geirim, or who were very poor family, or who had a sibling with mental illness or OTD.
There are plenty of mumim in shidduchiim. Most people have at least one. If your worst mum is being overweight, you will probably get married. If you have emotional issues with relationships, you will have a much harder time getting married that you will with any or all of the mumim above.November 21, 2016 5:32 pm at 5:32 pm in reply to: Converting to Judaism, how do I explain to family about Xmas? #1193158

I’m not afraid of anti-Semitic people. Hashem runs the world and ??? ????? ?? ????. I’m much more worried about Jews who don’t keep mitzvos or live up to our responsibility as a Jew because Hashem might punish us for not doing enough to help them.November 21, 2016 5:28 pm at 5:28 pm in reply to: Tzena Urena – ????? ????? #1196770

Kapusta, you should have started your own thread: Apple theory of the shidduch crisis.

So they made a miscalculation one year. They are producing a much desired product until then.
Most people want to turn over their kitchens at least a few days prior to Erev Pesach, (especially those of us who can’t cook anything otherwise!) and there is no mitzva to stop eating chametz until Erev Pesach anyway.April 14, 2016 2:26 am at 2:26 am in reply to: Second-hand clothing in BP #1146394
Are you looking for cheap or free?
If you just want cheap clothing, I would go to Pnina’s on like 13th and maybe 38th or 40th st.?? It’s new but classic styles and at cost price, it’s run as a tzedaka by a very special family.April 14, 2016 2:25 am at 2:25 am in reply to: Is Crohn's Disease a real issue? #1146390
yekke2, that’s a great story.April 14, 2016 2:21 am at 2:21 am in reply to: Should frum children have a library card? ✡️👪📚💳 #1149558
I agree with RebYidd that children should have a library card and go together to the library.
Supervision is also very important. With the sadly lowered morality of the world around us, it is important to make sure that our reading material does not affect us negatively in a spiritual way.
Personally, I prefer to place a hold online for books I want and then pick them up, because browsing exposes us to so much garbage.
For those who don’t get it, there’s a joke that goes around every year about a group of people who have nothing to eat on Pesach… ashkenazimMarch 14, 2016 11:58 pm at 11:58 pm in reply to: Bread Theory of the Shidduch Crisis #1142358

Thank you DY for bumping.
Bored on the job, I completely agree.
I also agree with what squeak said at some point – that you can’t make plans for major social engineering, without knowing what the effects are, with no actual factual basis.March 9, 2016 12:43 am at 12:43 am in reply to: age for marriage #1141609

Taking Motrin can give you ulcers
Taking Tylenol can give you liver failure.
It’s a medication. It doesn’t work for everyone and it has side effects. Doesn’t mean it’s not a good thing for other people in moderation.March 9, 2016 12:32 am at 12:32 am in reply to: Pink and white/ Blue and white/ Yellow and white cookies #1141372
I have a close relative who was the only Jew in an African American workforce for 30 years.
They used to bring black and white cookies to work for MLK day, until they got nervous in the past few years that it would be taken the wrong way by someone.March 8, 2016 12:01 am at 12:01 am in reply to: Now I Know What It Feels Like… #1141533

Dating is like a box of chocolates.
There are only so many chocolates in there, and once you’ve tasted each one to see if it’s good, there are no more whole chocolates to eat.
I’m not sure what my point is either.
