The husband’s employer donates thousands to Ohio politicians, including this judge. This judge is corrupt and the mother doesn’t stand a chance!!
The youngest 4 are being raised by the father’s GIRLFRIEND!! The father smeared urine on the face of one of the boys for wanting to do mitzvos!! Where is your rachmanus, people??
Cruz would never lower himself to being Trump’s VP. Trump is antithetical to everything Cruz believes in, as well as everything we believe in as Torah Jews!
Trump is an immoral, amoral, opportunistic, vulgar narcissist.
I’ll still be voting for Cruz in our primary next month.
Never Trump – Never Clinton!
That’s like asking, which is worse – mumps or measles?
Dear Little Froggie,
Thank you for posting your thoughtful response to Takahmamash’s thoughtful post. It was very sweet of you. ðŸ™‚
I echo Little Froggie’s thanks and condolences. I’m sure your parents are smiling down with nachas at your beautiful middos!
Dear Git Meshige,
Thank you for thinking of others, even if they didn’t think to thank you themselves. But really, I’m sure your gifts and presence enhanced their simcha! ðŸ™‚
Instead of spending weeks or months on a heartfelt creative gift out of love for the recipient, I’ll just get a cheap tchotchke at Amazing Savings since it will be valued as much…
So, seriously. Send a simple thank you note. It would kill you?
Yeshivas and shuls no longer have to waste staff time, money, and trees sending thank you notes to donors…
No more expensive dinners honoring people since they donated thousands *purely* for the mitzvah…
People will donate without expecting their name on an ad in a journal since those are expensive to print…
Git Meshige, this actually is working in our favor. If we are expected to be dan l’kaf zechus that they would have said thank you, that means the presumed recipient can be dan l’kaf zechus that we meant to give them the gift in the first place!
Since not writing a thank you note saves money on envelopes and stamps that get thrown away anyhow, just think how much not giving gifts at all will save – no more wasting time and money shopping, wrapping, writing a card, shlepping to the simcha, gas money, tolls, perhaps even airfare and hotel… We can just stay home from the simcha and learn hilchos middos on YWN instead. LOL
P.S. If saying “thank you” has become so passe, then does this mean we don’t have to bentch anymore? Yay!! Moshiach is sure to be just around the corner!!!!!!
What about down the road, if he is ever tried, found guilty, and sentenced? Could you imagine the outcry if Snowden got less jail time than Pollard?June 11, 2013 12:53 pm at 12:53 pm in reply to: Most important Jewish (Torah) values to impart to your children #958260
Torah and middos
This thing about Lakewood is being used to obfuscate the issue of perception. Perception is different than culpability or blame.
Writersoul, you write beautifully for your age (for any age) and I admire your willingness to stick with the issue. Please don’t let your studies suffer for this!
If they don’t make any sense, how can you tell whether if they’re wrong?
Like jewish source said, it does not make a difference if they were right or wrong at this point. Perception is reality. YOF needs to issue a statement making it clear they do not condone the behavior as reported, whether they believe it is being reported accurately or not.
No different than some boys who put on their black hat and jacket every morning. The more important question is, do these kids have good middos, or is it a costume?
This is a massive chillul Hashem and the YOF has some major damage control to do for the sake of all Yidden.
Since perception is reality, it doesn’t matter whose fault it was or if the kids were sitting with their hands folded in their laps or if the fight attendants were out of their gourds.
It went straight to the national media and the comments sections are crawling with Jew-hating comments.
Again, IT DOESN’T MATTER if they were being complete angels.
Apologies from YoF board, hanhala, parents, students, janitors, etc. are in order on the same scale as the national press.
I would think “for the ten-lesson program” would put it in context.
Did Moshe Rabbeinu speak of the Toyrah on Har Sinai?
Is it a Yeshivish thing to make fun of someone and remind them of having eaten treif in their past? Is it a FFB thing? Or is it just a lack of good middos?
I see what you did there.
re: K-Mart: I refer you to Dustin Hoffman in Rainman.
You’re both wrong. It’s “na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na BAT-MAN!!”
I am the walrus, coo coo ca-choo
I love when they called and act absolutely astonished when I tell them that we only give locally (which is not Brooklyn). BTW I save all telemarketing and robocalls under one name on my cell phone so I know not to answer the next time they call.
Get/borrow a yapping dog, like a terrier of some kind.
Haifagirl can proof the EY edition and I’ll proof the chutz la’aretz edition!
What does greacy/Greeci mean?April 14, 2013 4:27 am at 4:27 am in reply to: Agudas Yisroel of America Plans Mass Tefila in Manhattan Against Draft Gezeria #945372
Perfect – perhaps they can coordinate with the OU’s Jewish Communities Home & Relocation Fair, also downtown next Sunday.
Get a t-shirt instead.
all star – you wrote “This year especially I had pizza at 1:00am on moitze yom tov. I couldnt resist. Maybe next year I’ll wait longer.”
For all we know you ran out the send you did havdalah but waited in line until 1am. So is it the bidding you are against? whst if the proceeds went to tsedakah?
We don’t have a dog in this fight. It’s either St. Patrick or the snakes.

If you feel like you’d be marrying your brother or a roommate, run. Both can be great people but you don’t want to marry them.
Could you elaborate? Is there a minyan at a hospital nearby?
What about Congregation B’nai Jacob of Park Slope?
Toi: can i say, haifa, plaese stop driving me nuts, and then youll listen? awesome.
Let me help you increase the chances: Can I say, “Haifa, please stop driving me nuts”, and then you’ll listen? Awesome.
“Wouldn’t it be “the group that uses”, rather “the group that use”?”
*rather than (correcting my own typo)
Why would it be right in the UK? One group uses, two groups use.
Shnitzy +1 ðŸ™‚
Why can’t you just use a blowtorch? Less messy, unless a fire extinguisher becomes necessary, in which case you have more to worry about.
Ha… I got two wrong on the HS quiz, and one on the other. I never did get perfect tenses straight, and I haven’t studied the rules of grammar in X decades…
I loved the comment ‘I can spot an extra space in a 5000 page document’. That’s more where my strengths lie. Or is it lay? LOL…
Maybe we need to get through the shock and denial first. It’s only been two days since we lost a beautiful couple and only a day since we lost the ray of hope that their baby would survive. We know everything is min Shamayim but it’s heartbreaking to even think about what happened and the pain the family must be feeling.
Wouldn’t it be “the group that uses”, rather “the group that use”?
If you’re missing a letter on your keyboard, for example “b”, just copy a b from the screen and paste wherever you need.
Copy (control-c) this: b or this: B
Then paste: bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb
(Reading that last part out loud at the dinner table is also bad manners.)
Self-serving, no; more like, diversionary in the traditional style of the CR.
Haifagirl knows that I am a fan of correct grammar, spelling, etc., but I think it makes her slightly uncomfortable. LOL…
I wonder if any of these bochurim have had trouble with shidduchim because they or their fathers are bald/ing?
(Sorry!! It’s like scratching an itch!!)
I had to work hard to get decent grades in high school and I had to work hard to succeed in college. The pressure was awful. I wouldn’t want to go back to those days.
left to write – that was a beautiful answer!
So when you see ‘to whom it may concern’, does that really mean ‘to him/her who it may concern?’ yikes…
HG – Thanks for the ‘replacing him with whom’ tip. I don’t think I’ve ever gotten that right.
