if your near Jackson, on the corner of countyline and pinepark/kent rd. is a basement minyan known as Fish ( the name of the owner of the home) all types, very accepting.
in general i must say it’s a kiddush hashem the way many of the shuls in lakewood are made up of many different types of people yeshivish, chassidish, more modern etc. obviously a minyan in a new complex is going to be a bit homogeneus, but out in the town it’s not like that.
Fyi, there is an exiting masters available now called Mental Health Counseling (MHC). It’s still relativly new in NY (as opposed to other states, in NJ it’s called LPC)but it’s on the way up. The advantage over MSW is that it focuses only on clinical practice. as opposed to MSW where the first year at least is spent on social justice and the professors are rarely with clinical experience. you finish as an am haaretz in psychotherapy..in my opinion.
If you’re planninig on working in a clinic or social service center than MSW is the way to go. but if you’re bent on private practice, then I would suggest MHC.
To qualify as a certified Tuna Beigel you must be a guy who’s obviously chasidish but trims, wears a sweater, must have a blackberry and your peyos are either behind your ear or very small and tightly twirlled on your face. Otherwise your NOT a TB.
The general implication is that he’s enamored with the “velt” while remaining chasidish, which is wonderful if you asked me. better than stopping to wear the levush.
Incidentally, I don’t believe the term came from a guy ordering a “tuna beigel” in a store, because noone (even a tuna beigel) asks for a tuna beigel. You ask for a tuna sandwich or tuna on a beigel or a beigel with tuna …..
I have recently heard them called Teena beigel, which may be more accurate.
In any event, it is a derogatory term and would definately qualify for “michane shem lechaveiro” which carries a sever onesh. L’toeles, if you hear this about a person at least you’ll understand what it means.
I have a whitelist for the sites i need (apparently I need Yeshiva world..) it actually blocks even the ads on the sidebar of Yeshiva world’s homepage!
however i have a very limited number of sites i need and i don’t constantly need new ones. if you constantly need access to different sites, a whitelist can get inconvinient.
in any case, let’s not minimize the problem, and i applaude chofetzchaim for writing an important post.
i was in EY by the last dibbuk (1999). the place they did the dibbuk evacuation from was open to the public. there were guys walking in and out, checking out the matzav…..that one turned out to be a shpiel. let’s see about this one….
