Always have been a fan of my hometown, Salt Lake City
As a YU guy I say go for it. The guy sounds like he’s from the more yeshivish side of YU. Besides just because you go to YU doesnt mean that you can’t be Yeshivish. There are plenty of people that went to YU in the yeshivish world. YU just has a broad spectrum. Also you should be more concerned who his Rebbe in YU is then the yeshiva he went to in Israel. His rebbe would have the most recent influence on his hashkafa.
@147 You do know that the main Jewish community is half in Baltimore and half in Baltimore county. Most of the events that are happening in Baltimore are happening in the inner city. That is just like saying (20 years ago) that since Harlem is such a terrible neighborhood it is unsafe to live in Kew Garden Hills. Where the Jewish community is in Baltimore is safe to live in.
@cherrybim ok but if this is true that means they are moving to Baltimore and something tells me that Jewish people would not move to an unsafe area. Also I think you need to view how many of them went to the Baltimore Yeshivas and stayed.
147 you sound like you have a personal vendetta against Baltimore. Perhaps you had a bad experience with something associated with the city but that does not give you the right to spread nonsense about the city.
The bigger question is why you feel like you are going to panic. Try and figure that out then ask when the right time to panic is.
People are stupid and say stupid things because they need to ostracize everyone who is not like them because they have an inferiority complex.
Then how would we be able to flex?
I have friends in the 5 towns and the A train is just the most convenient but I heard that it isn’t so safe.
I’ll just take the LIRR or meet them in the city
This complicates things
Some shuls have the minhag not to say tachnun until the 14th of Sivan.
Has nothing to do with D Day
@42 why are you bringing up a post that has been dead for 2 years?
Go and ask your Rebbi when he thinks it is appropriate for you to date stop asking the coffee room
There are poskim that say that if you normally shave for shabbos then you can shave on fridays during the omer.
But then what else would the mods do?
And these professors also told you that the world is round *gasp*

Have a conversation about this with him. She should say what she really feels and hopefully he will be willing to talk.
This is overkill

I got my license at 14…April 24, 2014 2:41 am at 2:41 am in reply to: Important notice about child-rearing and dentistry! #1028281
thank you for wasting my time
She will not be overshadowed by other students. They offer Academic scholarships to those that deserve not based on need. (Im saying this more based on Stern, don’t know as much Turo) I have heard of people getting full rides for that score.
@BMHEE Both colleges are aware of how FAFSA works. They factor in financial aid based on the amount of sibilings (At least stern does). What I would suggest is calling up their respective financial offices and talk to them because they will be able to answer your specific questions and work with you. Asking us over here is not going to help unless you talk to them.
@macklamore The real question you should be asking yourself is why you have not made aliyah yet. Then you not have these questions
It all depends if you qualify for their honors programs. Go and check that out and then start asking the questions.
go to YUtorah.org and search for it
What would be the reasons why you would not be able to go?
They get people like you to do it for them
and that’s the challenge
I once posted on a thread that hasn’t been posted on for
wait for it
How crazy of me to do something like this. This must be one of the craziest things ever. Top ten for sure.
@little Froggie I did not know that the torah is called the bible. Thank you so much for clarifying it for me.
Ok it seems that I was wrong about my sources but based on the community I was raised in, It is common for people to say good shabbos to people of the opposite gender. That is what is considered polite. Maybe in your communities this is not the norm. However I am going to trust the Rabbis and the community I am from.
Chazal made statements about touching people of the opposite gender, I don’t think that they made statements about not saying good shabbos to the opposite gender.

Im thinking that I would rather be in YU, I feel that it closer to what im looking for. But would like more information if anyone knows anything about yeshivas near Stanford
Thanks for all the help
Im not really looking to go to college in the New York area and if I got into universities like Stanford and Carnegie Mellon why would I want to go to places I have never heard of like Empire State College?
but now that you mentioned University of Maryland, does anyone know how far silver spring is from the main campus?
yeah but MIT is better in robotics. Anyways anyone know about anything near Stanford, Northwester, or Carnegie Mellon?
Sam2 – Aside from YU am I able to get a good job after attending any of these places? (only reason I am not saying this about YU is because they are a top 50 school)
Popa – Georgetown is in DC, Ner is in Baltimore 40 miles away
Popa – any idea how close the mesivta is to MIT’s campus?
I thought all the talk about this died down already… guess not
