Making fancy themed shaloch manos is the equivlant to avodah zara (included in that catagory is cars fancier then mine, vacations that cost more then mine, buying cloths that cost more then mine, fancier simchas then mine and of course spending more money on aliyos then me)
One is CHAYIV MISAH for behaving in such a way
No one cares
LOTR92 cause this isnt what mordechai and esther had in mind. This isnt about me. This is all lesheim shamayim. And is this what were supposed to show to our kids what is important?
For me please no wafers, zazas and hamentashin. Want choclates, beers and sodas
and @uncle ben thank you in advance for the next spelling lesson
Ok lets say everyone did the simple shaloch manos. Hamentashen and grape juice (and those zazas).. imagine by the end of purim you’ll have say 10-35 (depending how chosguv you are) of those small grape juices and way too much hamentashin. Now that we have themes it allows us to have a variety of items which can be eaten in a nice fasion. Soda cand and snack bags for kids snacks. Cakes and cookies and hametashin for shabbos. Choclate is good for anytime and so on. You want to keep it simple keep it simple. I wont remember who gave what anyway (or ill just give it to someone else as their shaloch manos, i dont care)
People like to express their creativity with shaloch manos. If you dont want to, you dont have to, and no one will think less of you for doing something simple (and if they do, you have awful friends or family). To tell people not to do something because you dont want to is a bit outrages though

Once again. @ywn posts an article about hawaii banning smoking so of course the most appropiate thumbnail is 2 youmg chareidi boys smoking!
Why on earth would you use that for a story that has no relavance to them? We get it @ywn you really dont like them and you fully believe in your self righteous opinion that they are practically not even jewish, but how do you justify that and say its not at all loshon harah?
Make a coffee room thread
Any cons to this?
Winnieh the pooh your probably right about that, another issue i should have mentioned is that we did go through our friends and my circles and hers are very different from each other. That being said, it seems that situation is the exception and not the majority of marriges. However ill try again. Avacado is right, its selfish if you might be the one who can bring two ppl who were meant to be together, but you gave up too soon.
Actually i drive alot for my job. My hand which is exposed to the sun through the windshield got sunburnt (and is hurting like crazy) . Google it, sunburns can happen in the winter. Apparently it doesnt come down to heat
I try im married for year and a half, almost all suggestions i come up with are either not or barley considered. Gets annoying after a bunch of times
@CTL perfect. This looks perfect next to my car next to it and I put some MAGA stickers on the mailbox as a token to our friendship and loyalty to the republican party. Thank you for the check, i made a donation in your name to the RNC. We greatly appreciate your generosity
@mammela i had a white car when i made my account. Now i have a gray car
Yes @daas yochid I agreeDecember 11, 2018 9:56 am at 9:56 am in reply to: Who else is getting sick of YWN telling us what to think #1641383
@yichusdik you must be new to this site. Ywn has a clear bias to the circles it the owner owner doesnt like (chareidim, berlanders, lev tahor ppl) not that they are wrong but their titles are filled with hatred. They feel its their job to influence our opinion. We can read articles for ourselves and form an opinion but no. Ywn will tell you what opinion to form before you even click on anything. Such disgusting ppl
@Toi there is one I know of in Brachos where I believe it was Rav Nachman (i could be wrong) asked his shamesh that if he falls asleep in the morning while saying shema, if he didnt finish the first paragraph then he should be woken. Otherwise dont wake him even though he has not completley finished. I heard that (i forgot who) this was so the shamash wouldnt cause Gezel Shaina (since r nachman holds only the first paragraph is a chiyuv and therefore must be woken up)November 26, 2018 12:58 am at 12:58 am in reply to: Why Are Torah Observant Jews Overwhelmingly Republican/Conservative? #1630368
Are you serious or just trollingNovember 21, 2018 7:33 pm at 7:33 pm in reply to: How important is it to you to have a nice mailbox? #1628670
Maybe for chanukah
Then why are Rabbonim not giving heterim and if there are Rabbonim that are, who are they?
We did alot better then what is the norm
Yay i was right
@joseph there are so many possible outcomes (as opposed to a presidential election) its possible that dems take the house and senate by a huge majority… but i do not believe that will happen and am willing tonbet my money on that
Also bob hugin will not win ( as much as i hope he does)November 4, 2018 11:25 am at 11:25 am in reply to: Calling 311 on someone blocking your driveway is mesira #1616424
I know Rabbi Shay Tahan says yes
Everything is in the hands of heaven except for yiras shamayim. Just cause your not in range of the well known challenges, Doesnt mean your on the golden road to gan eden.

@yeshivishe kup whats wrong with a bumbucket?October 2, 2018 9:15 pm at 9:15 pm in reply to: Why are there no Gibson guitars in Jewish Music bands #1597509
Does the tone of the Gibson (very fat) clash with the band as opposed to the Strat which has a very clean sound?
Well what type of wines and whiskys are we talking about?
@CTL we’ll find out who you are 🙂
Meant not about meeting them, but if you met that number of people, you probably in general had a different life and seen things and lived through things most havent which for someone like me would find interesting
@CTLawyer or @Amil Zola did you (or your husband) ever write a book? (I know i might if I met and chatted with those people)
@CTL what is your opinion on Hillarys economic views, Her Diplamatic Policys and Morals? Also the 2018 Democrats? And which Democrat would you like to see beat Trump in 2020? Im asking you cause the other Democrats in the CR seem to only hate Trump and Republicans out of emotion, not reason.
@CTL are you Alan Durshowitz? (Ik your not since he defends Trump on legal basis but after seeing yout list I initially thought you might be)
Or fix it up from within. Any extreme either way would be awful
Even when he was dying he had to get the last punch to Trump. He preaches about not sowing discord but his whole farewell letter was a hint to oppose Trump.
I dont rememberAugust 23, 2018 12:01 pm at 12:01 pm in reply to: Answering “what type of guy are you looking for” in shidduchim? #1579261
Well simple answer to give is working or learning, but in my opinion if you really want to narrow it down, say I want a guy who’s put together and knows where he is going in life. In my personal experience (as a guy) there are not to many people like that, but that is the underlying factor of a growing person!August 21, 2018 7:00 pm at 7:00 pm in reply to: President Donald Trump, Oheiv Yisroel Par Excellence #1578426
@jnn exactly, thats why Obama and Carter were one of the best presidents we ever had. They knew the truth
@ anonymous jew, keep your self righteousness to yourself. Thank you
