So mdlevine, you are neither pro-freikeit nor pro-frumkeit? A middle of the roader you say?
You know what happens to those in “middle of the road”? They get hit from both sides!
Look at YW’s archives. There were 2 asifas. Both men and women. Both have audio copies.
And whats the excuse for those lacking a JACKET by davening? NONE.
And this is especially problematic during SHACHRIS when some yodles put on a talis without any jacket.August 3, 2008 9:59 pm at 9:59 pm in reply to: The greatest financial supporter of Torah Jewry in the world #634041
If only people had listened to the Gedolim…
If only people had listened to the Gedolim…
All these troubles could’ve been avoided…
History has proven the Brisker Rav, the Satmar Rebbe… right…
FWIW, Reb Ahron Schecter holds the Choson & Kallah hold hands from the chupa to the yichud room (even though Reb Ahron doesn’t hold from the Mitzva Tantz.)
feifun, the comment mentioned examples of modern views i.e. hallel on israel independence, no jackets and hats, etc.
Whats the heter for not wearing a jacket and hat during davening, as required by mishna berura?August 3, 2008 2:42 pm at 2:42 pm in reply to: The greatest financial supporter of Torah Jewry in the world #634040
The government in Israel takes more money from frum Jews than it gives to frum Yeshivas. Break the relationship like Brisk (and Satmar and others) does. Don’t take their dirty money and don’t pay them taxes. We’ll be better off.
Sorry if SHULCHAN ORACH offends you. But that is plain black and white Jewish law. Now sometimes a Rav may for extenuating circumstances make an EXCEPTION. But the rule is a Gers former-life family no longer has shaichos to the Ger except as any other Goy – mere acquanintances.
A Yirei Shmayim wears a hat and jacket.
A Yirei Shmayim doesn’t seek excuses, its too hot, etc. too daven without kavod i.e. by not wearing a hat and jacket.
No hat is needed in shul because you don’t need it for the President, and no jacket is needed in shul because you do need it for the President!? Very smart.
Can you conjure up any other methods to throw out minhugim?
mosherose, is that the name of the same person who made the comment here?
I don’t mind so much that Obama shtams from a Muslim father, but the jerk is a neophyte and inexperienced. He has nothing in his resume to position him as President and Commander-in-Chief.
He has no track record on major positions. And he keeps flip-flopping on the positions he has taken.
Pushut, Who are YOU to go against SHULCHAN ORACH and call anyone in your way kanaim? What azus! What chutzpa! What rishus!
(Yes, if you want to know where you went against shulchan orach reread your words in this section. Any reasonable ben torah can see it.)
Pushut Yid, Neither Rav Shmuel Kamenetzky, nor Rav Ephraim Wachsman, nor Rav Mattisyahu Solomon said anything of the like. So who are you to spit in Rav Shmuel Kamenetzky, Rav Ephraim Wachsman, AND Rav Mattisyahu Solomon faces?
How can you stand opposed to Rav Shmuel Kamenetzky, Rav Ephraim Wachsman, AND Rav Mattisyahu Solomon on your own two legs? WHO ARE YOU TO STAND AGAINST THEM?
Stealing your neighbors lady!? Gevalt! How could you even ask…
Poshit, You just worry about getting your own wife and daughters dressed appropriately instead of trying to make sure everyone elses wives and daughters are dressed inappropriately for your benefit.July 27, 2008 7:26 pm at 7:26 pm in reply to: Out Of The Mailbag: (Flatbush Kiddush: Tznius & Drinking Out Of Control) #1142508
nameless, tsuz shver tsu zain ah yid. Yes, its hard to be a Jew. But one must persevere and succeed nevertheless.
Tznius MUST be enforced by ALL means available as the crime is not victimless. The victims of the purveyors of pritzus are the innocent men in her path. Yes, INNOCENT men who will undoubtable see it unwillingly and to their great constenation. And the farce about the goyim are dressed like that anyway is boneheaded, as people stick to and notice their kind.
Mr. Poshit Yid, Why are you soo allergic and antogonistic to the truth that Yidden are superior?
blogs are used by several reshoyim to malign and attack the Torah and its servants – Rabbonim and Talmidei Chachomim.
Baruch Hashem for the great display of Ahavas Yisroel and intellectual honesty by YW that they even allow posts by Jews so far off the derech that they openly and brazenly congratulate each other on who is the biggest (self) Sonei Yisroel!
(Now no one can say that the (self) anti-semites are denied a forum in the Yeshivish community where they can make their boneheaded arguments and be disproven on the merits.)
Thank you so much. This is a beautiful message to all of Klal Yisroel!
I have already printed out many copies and posted it for public consumption.
Hey Pashuteyid, don’t sneer. torahis1 is a charter member of the YW apikursus club. I remember still from before your time when he and the old (now long gone) Moshe Fox would wave their banner against the YW masses!
torahis1 – WE Yidden are the CHOSEN NATION. We are incomparably better than the umos haolam. We have kedusha. They have tuma.
yoshi, so it truly is purely coincidental that you “and” yossiesiegal:
1) both purportedly live in lakewood
2) yossie pops up for the first time on yw backing yoshi up
3) remarkably similar screen names
4) both accounts registered on the exact same day
you didn’t “put him up” now, did you?
Like new york lotto says, hey you never know – anything is possible!
Is it merely “coincidental” that besides yossisiegel having a strikingly similar name to yoshi and they registered their yw account the exact same day as each other, that one is highly complimenting the other?
