I asked this to a Rav in Israel a few months ago. He said I should dip 5 times. Once to remove the tumah, one two be mekabel the tahara, and once for nefesh, ruach, and neshama.
You can go to Rav Gamliel Rabinovich. He has open hours at his home on Monday and Wednesday nights from 7:00-9:30. Make sure you take a number when you walk in. You will not feel rushed at all and can ask anything you want. His address is #2 Rechov Moshe Chagiz and its the fourth floor up. He speaks yiddish and hebrew.
I do not think you are being hypocritical at all. Have any of us learned something in the mishna berura or some sort of halacha where the next day we did not adhere by it? Everyone is on their own level and it takes a lot of siyata dishmaya to say the right things in kiruv and make it have an impact on the person.
Secondly, Dovid Hamelech says “heemanti ki adaber” meaning I believe because I speak. By you talking about it more and more makes you into a firmer believer. When you are saying these things to the one you are trying to be mekarev, you are talking to yourself as well and and it could potentially have a greater impact on you than the other person.December 8, 2010 3:52 pm at 3:52 pm in reply to: Shaitle Fraud Chillul Hashem Video: Sha'ar haTumah haChamishim #717904
A few questions. Firstly, she says she has two shaitels one fall and one full wig. The first thing that came to my mind was what is that she is wearing on her head at the actual court case? Secondly, for all those who are asking how did she call Georgi wigs or how did she know this and that its really very simple. If you would notice in the beginning of the video that the husband pulled out a bunch of papers so obviously one of those papers would be the receipt fro Georgi with a phone number that would be submitted to the judge for review as well. Lastly, for all those who are questioning whether they were lying or not, one can tell so clearly that they were busted just by watching their reactions at the end of the video when the guy outside the court room asks them did that really just happen? They have no excuses left for themselves.
Random1- I actually have a great recipe for whole wheat doughnuts I make at home every night of chanuka and they are so delicious! You are more than welcome to come over (wink,wink) and come for a taste test. Also use ‘Ungers” jelly for your donuts.
Yes I know of a place!!!! It is called not having any and just abstaining from the donuts. You are like the guy who orders 5 cheese burgers and fries but a large diet coke for you to justify it for yourself. Lets not fool ourselves here and think just because its a whole wheat fried donut stuffed with jelly and sugars galore that its ok to eat.
While I think it is very important to bring your cell phone on the date just in case G-d forbid something happens (flat tire, dead car etc.) one should not be checking txt messages or anything on the actual date. It should either be left in the car or on silent in your pocket. A date is short and all time should be focused on getting to know the person and seeing if it is a potential mate, not your friends asking if he is cute or if she is pretty.
sammygol: is he extra makpid during the 9 days?
Haifagirl- Yes I agree that there is nothing essentially wrong with asking those kind of questions, there is something wrong if those are the top priorities and the “deal-breakers”.
I am still in shock that this is an actual thread. This is the problem with society today that we base our judgment of people solely on the exterior. We would rather run to make a shidduch with the “yeshivish” guy wearing a hat and jacket to mincha but on his cell phone the whole time rather than the guy davening so ehrlich but he wears a colored shirt. Where have our morals gone? When calling for information on a boy, our questions should be does he learn well? Is he a good friend? not what color his shirt is or what company makes it. Its very nice to put on a good show to the world but how about not fooling yourself.
