However, if you are still moving to Montreal chat with Rabbi Meshulam Emmanuel, head of Montreal Kashrus. He is very helpful and knowledgeably of local conditions.
nobody is sticking up for anyone, the facts speak for themselves, our society is not as sheltered as we would like it to be. Chashdaihu vekabdaihu and not the opposite, kabdaihu ve’chahdaihu/
stanleyc, you are a person indeed in need of help. It appears you have no shame. I assume you are not Shomer Shabbas as your words and actions do not reflect those of a Ben-Torah. The words you choose and act upon in the confines of your home have no bearing on the world, once you step out of those confines it behooves you to think prior to speaking and mocking others. You do this so well in the guise of hiding behind a non deplume. In the real world you are nothing but a coward and a bully and more than likely very insecure, hence the inherent need to mock others.

stanleyc, if you think you are funny, humorous, you are a shame and disgrace to this site and should be banned forthwith. Making fun of someone created betzelem Elokim, think twice, and now for the famous Freudian quote, yes some of us are educated, never is a truer word said in jest, stop hurting others it is not the Jewish way.

most of what we know regarding Availus is minhag, minhag, did i forget to say minhag. I have sat shiva three times for family and have learnt to understand the extremities according to various situations. By the way just in case for those who choose to berate and spew negative rhetoric the bais hamikdosh hashainy was destroyed, yes you guessed it sinas chinam. I feel it necessary to highlight as it appears some of you have forgotten this.
Learning is challenging at best however if this is the end result of what our kollels are producing, such open and vial hatred then my friend i suggest you go back to learning basics.
This is not about taking sides, remember, this is a public forum. Behazlocho to all of you. By the way i have sat shiva more than, once,twice, three and four times. You ask your Rov and follow that minhag that is what makes Am Yisroel so great. Bottom line we must be mindful, and yes respectful of another person’s minhag even if we disagree. So go ahead and bring all the proofs from here and there it is still minhag,(translates to CUSTOM)
politicians have to make a living so they make us nervous. Taxes here taxes everywhere, H-shem provides us with what we need not the politicians, so people get with the program..If you have an ounce of sincerity in your observance of Yiddishkyte we will I”YH make it through this storm; Mi ke’amcho Yisroel!!
The ad in Israel to stop smoking went something like this:
Al tiftach peh la’sartan (Ivrit for cancer)
or Cancer cures smoking permanently.
Either way smoking is not healthy.
when you figure it out please let us all know or better still write a book it is guaranteed to be a best seller
do not assume anything,talk with him, find out how what when where. Perhaps it was friends, again assume nothing and walk in with a positive attitude, try to engage and involve him in the decision making by asking his opinion, let him also be a part of the solution. If it comes even partially from him it will be a very compelling situation allowing for resolution with a minimum of hostility.
Good luck, tread very lightly, he is still your son no matter what.
The New chief Rabbi is from South Africa his father was
rov as well. The family is very distinguished and very suitable for this position. He is honest to a fault. Behazlocho
your heart will never lie your mind might try to convince you. If you have to be convinced it is not for you. So why is it for you, because you cannot explain it. No control factor
Remember the golden rule:
Do your best
Leave the rest
Hope and pray
Thing will come out okay
You are a poet and don’t even know it
Because it rhymes in time.
the answer is so simple, no critique, just write a handbook with instructions
and have in mind to enjoy, remember perfection is exclusive to malachim.
I became observant when shall we say it was not fashionable, attended prominent yeshivas just like our true brethren ( from the ffb club)speak ivrit , Yiddish all fluently i might add, and just for fun people, yes a reminder is thrown in periodically not meant to necessarily hurt, however, yes it does. One would think perhaps as this might not be the case, i hate to use this word, but for lack of a better one, bigotry is alive and well, flourishing on all levels here in the USA. Yes i am an import. I was shocked to the core at the level of hurt the our ffb brethren, not knowingly of course, inflict on the BT community.
I am grateful someone has the gumption to spearhead a campaign
of awareness and highlight this uncomfortable situation which exists in our community. Amazing as this may sound there is no level of discrimination when accepting our checks for tzedoko. Moron ve’raboisai, wake up, there are still mitzvois bain odom le’chavairo we can fulfill and not rely purely on bain odom lamakoim to serve the Ribono shel Oilam.December 24, 2012 2:06 am at 2:06 am in reply to: A Gartel, a tie and An Arab string around headdress – what is the connection? #915019
If the shoe were on the other foot how would you react then? To be judgmental is not a healthy attribute, be nice and what goes around comes around. The golden rule.
this is above our paygrade
This name is already taken, you need a chevrusa to learn Torah, then perhaps these “posts” will slowly be minimized. Seriously!
People are seriously bored, what would your chevrusa say!
g73; no disrespect, the war is being fought there not here. the war of words is being fought everywhere, join that one. H-shem is in charge whether we choose to accept that or not;having participated in a previous war in the ranks of the IDF. nothing is perfect in this world except malachim and H-shem. As Rochel from abroad mentioned nisim are everywhere in Eretz hakodesh as in the world as a whole. G73: be positive in your criticism and try to encourage people to respond. Just in case you forgot, a courteous reminder, in NY we are dealing with the wrath of Sandy and the aftermath.If it is okay with you i suggest in summation as a former great leader in out times used to say; think positive and it will be positive;
have a great day and be safe..

or try the following:

make light of it to help when you ‘highlight’ it, it works much better.
No matter what my highly intelligent collegues are coming up with a few rules apply. Dirty laundry is not aired or discussed in public, it takes two to tango and ultimately if you have the need still to blame one and justify ones existance then perhaps be bold and say we were not compatible, why is it necessary to assign blame. Always remover the golden rule about divorce, there are three versions. His,her and now for a chidush the truth.
Name calling is not a very Jewish way of doing things, or are we becoming to goyish ?
Places to eat for Shabbos, shidduchim,jobs
One stop shop, not limited to NYC or the surrounding areas, try it you might just be surprised
??? ????? ???? ???
Opportunities do not fall into our laps, we make them happen with help from H-Shem
The police in Brooklyn work on quotas and what ever it takes. This is an ext. of their work.. There are highways in certain parts of the world where tickets are issued on highways via security cams for years.
you have all managed to squash the joke so eloquently. poor tomatoes.
Sam, The Halacha supports you with one exception if the person eating does not have their own sukka yaish al mi lismoch. however at first glance one should be nizzur involving this inyan.
It’s all part of the master plan as put forward by H-shem
no, he was just ‘moonlighting’
it is truly amazing that despite the 11 year time lapse from then to today the memories are as vivid as ever. interestingly enough this yortzeid is remembered twice every year, once on 9.11. and then the Yiddish date, 23rd Elul. It appears that most people associate 9.11 as the yortzeid. any thoughts
Never forget the Jewish date Elul 23, which was Sunday night/ Monday.
This topic is ad nausium.A story was recently told to me by my daughter-in-law.in the erev shabbos mock party in the play group the little boy who played tatti was sleeping at the table, the morah asked if he was tired to which he replied,no, his tatti sleeps at the shabbos table. You do not see your children the whole week, working oh so hard,then when you are home you still do not see the child, so yes they will tend to raise themselves. DO NOT RELY on the yeshivas to raise or instill the values, they are concerned with tuition bills. can’t blame them, staff need to get paid, very vicious cycle. hence more responsibility falls upon the ‘
parents, stop ‘sleeping’ and be a part of your children’s lives.
ps this is pure common sense which by the way is not common to everyone, so get common…
no great ‘shakes’ ask a Rav and follow his ruling not every Tom,Dick or Harry who may have had this issue
Are you a yid shomer torah and mitzvos? priorities, and no i am not a zioni
I knew him personally for many years of his life. His ‘gadlus was that he did not have to prove anything to anyone, try to impress you. He was just himself and that like the old Honda add which was the car that sold itself. He kept it simple, not to many cords in the music, friendly to all, had a good kind word to all. No person is perfect in this world, only malachim, and of course they are not human. We can emulate the good aspire to do better by thinking and helping others. If you have a gift use for the positive to enhance the life of a fellow Yid.
pardon my asking but what qualifies you as experts in determining this shiddich’s validity or not.Our world is full of eitza gebbers, if there is a need for a professional, then consult one, you could do more harm than good, if a person is old enough to get married then they get to make the ultimate decisions as well. Daven to H-shem and be positive and things will crystallize for you very quickly. Old wives tale, if you you to convince yourself to like someone it is not for you, to explain why someone is for you is also not necessary. Hazlucha meruba. Simchas by alle Yidden
the same way they are put on
i learnt Yiddish, here in the USA and am not Chassidish.Another language never will hurt you.
my cleaning lady is born in the USA and speaks primarily Spanish. She respects her heritage, perhaps, and perhaps we should respect ours?
if they are soliciting then according to the letter of the law, guilty.
Is this a new brand of Yiddishkyte? It sounds pretty close?
