What makes you think everyone can decide for themself? This is a matter one should consult with their Rov to decide.

BP Totty: Your point is well made, yet doesn’t answer the OP’s stated concern.May 17, 2010 10:20 pm at 10:20 pm in reply to: Breach in Tznius: Recent affliction attacking Klal Yisroel #1025060
“When you say “Torah She’baal Peh,” exactly what does that mean?”
The Torah She’baal Peh is the oral Torah handed down orally by Hashem at Har Sinai to Moshe Rabbeinu and Klal Yisroel and passed through the generations via the mesorah.
The Torah She’baal Peh is as much a part of the Torah, as relevant and as mandatory to follow today, as the Torah Shebecsav that you read from the Bima at least 3 times a week.May 17, 2010 10:13 pm at 10:13 pm in reply to: Breach in Tznius: Recent affliction attacking Klal Yisroel #1025059
See above. There are enough common denominators on tznius that we don’t need to find excuses to avoid the halachic issues altogether based upon the differences.
Let’s start educating the public on the common ground.May 17, 2010 10:07 pm at 10:07 pm in reply to: Breach in Tznius: Recent affliction attacking Klal Yisroel #1025057
rescue37: I’m perplexed why no one asked all these questions before the CCHF opened shop. “What about if there is a machlokes on how to interpret loshon hora laws? This Rov’s standards, that Rov’s standards, my Rov’s standards, your Rov’s standards?” There is far far more gray areas in loshon hora than tznius, so this should have seemingly been an even greater concern. Yet despite such questions, there was (appropriately) no reluctance or such issues raised establishing the CCHF.
Great point.May 17, 2010 9:54 pm at 9:54 pm in reply to: Breach in Tznius: Recent affliction attacking Klal Yisroel #1025054
The Torah Shebecsav and the Torah She’baal Peh.May 17, 2010 9:33 pm at 9:33 pm in reply to: Breach in Tznius: Recent affliction attacking Klal Yisroel #1025050
rescue37: So I take it you would be willing to work with me to establish a Chofetz Chaim Tznius Foundation to educate and work with the public the same way the CCHF works on the loshon hora issue.May 17, 2010 9:29 pm at 9:29 pm in reply to: Breach in Tznius: Recent affliction attacking Klal Yisroel #1025048
We must educate and stress to our brethren the laws of loshon hora (ala Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation, shiurim, etc.), tznius, and other areas that require brushing up on.May 17, 2010 9:10 pm at 9:10 pm in reply to: Breach in Tznius: Recent affliction attacking Klal Yisroel #1025044
Acheinu Bnei Yisroel must worry about each others ruchniyus moreso even than their gashmiyus. Why do we have the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation constantly reminding us the laws against loshon hora? Since they are worried about our ruchniyus. No one complains that the CCHF should stop their anti-loshon hora campaigns and only start worrying about their own ruchniyus. Here too this applies.May 17, 2010 6:33 pm at 6:33 pm in reply to: Breach in Tznius: Recent affliction attacking Klal Yisroel #1025034
50% aren’t failing. It is a much smaller percentage. Yet even this is too much.
laguy: Limudei Kodesh needs to be taught in the morning prior to secular studies.
gavra_at_work: I fully agree. If Wal Mart & Target are the best income a parent can secure, they should not be embarrassed to accept a position there. But just keep in mind, parents working in Wal Mart & Target will not be able to afford anywhere near full tuition.
gavra_at_work: Thank you.
Obviously those halachas are if the parent is negligent in refusing to secure an income where possible. OTOH if the parent tries his best to obtain an income and is unsuccessful or the income is wholly insufficient, there is no right to shame them.
“question if a person can’t afford tuition, do they have a right to have more kids?”
chesed name: I am deeply perturbed a Frum Torah Jew could mouth such a question! Every one has an absolute unfettered right to have as many children as HKB”H blesses him with. Without interference. Even if he is perpetually unemployed without any current or foreseeable income.
