Here’s a great idea. To those who enjoy Lipa, Please continue to enjoy him. For those who don’t, please don’t listen and leave the others alone. Each of us has a right to choose what music we like. Is this the next question on the stupid shidduch list questionnaire? Does the boy listen to Lipa? How shallow have we become?
Bogen, I don’t really think it’s fair for you to come out here and judge people. I myself go to minyan many many times w/o a hat and jacket. Therefore, according to YOU, I am disrespectful and have no kavana. Forgive me for asking, but do you have a direct line to Hakodosh Baruch Hu? Are you so perfect that you have a right to judge? Take a good look in the mirror and think about Tisha B’av. It’s people like YOU that remind me why the Bais Hamikdash was destroyed. Maybe, from now on, I will just stop davening with a minyan if I don’t have a hat or jacket, because YOU might be there to judge me. I would say what’s really on my mind, but it would get censored.
How stupid will the topics get? People, get a life.
my dear jent1150: Allow me once again to answer your silly condescending comments. You see, went I went to Yeshiva (yes, one of the big ones), they provided us with something. It’s called a secular education. We actually learned to speak complete english sentences. Therefore, many of us have heard that term many many times. You (and the “we” that you mention) never learned how to do that. However, I do take solace in knowing that you are a very ehrlicher yid. Much more so than I will ever be. But at least I know that Derech Eretz Kadma LeTorah. That’s something that you and your “we” friends will NEVER understand.
jent1150: Allow me to answer your question regarding “holier than thou”. All you need to do is read your reply to me and you should have a <B>VERY, VERY CLEAR</B> understanding of what it means. I don’t know where you get the unmitigated chutzpah to say that I am not and ehrlich yid (as you so obviously are), however, I have heard many many frum yidden using that particular term. With Tisha B’av fast approaching, you should stop and think why the Bais Hamikdosh was destroyed. It’s from the sinas chinam that <B>YOU</B> and those like you spew forth.
Sad to say that the way our society has become, this “holier than thou” attitude is turning many people off. The author has it right. Why can people (Josephf?) live and let live? People have different interpretations of hilchos tznius, etc. Let’s face it, just because it was decided in Monroe that silver/gold shoes is not tzniusdik does not make it halacha. This is just one example. Until you put yourself in someone else’s shoes, please don’t preach. Not one person that is busy sticking his/her nose in yenem’s business is perfect. As the saying goes, “physician, heal thyself”.July 17, 2008 3:49 pm at 3:49 pm in reply to: Out Of The Mailbag: (Bungalow Colony Binge Drinking) #619605
<b>jent1150</b>: well said. about time people started acting like adults. At this age, they do not need Rabbonim to tell them how to behave.
<b>gsix</b>: I agree with you too. I see absolutely NOTHING wrong with sports. It is a very healthy outlet and I wish the yeshivas would give the kids a little more play time. Any doctor would concur.July 3, 2008 3:50 pm at 3:50 pm in reply to: Out Of The Mailbag: (Taking Issue With School Administration) #627629
And then we wonder why our kids grow up with an attitude, but little education? Look at the role models. Wish there was a way we could bring back the education we got back in the 60s and 70s – with real teachers and a full high school curriculum. But, alas, that cannot happen because then, G-d forbid, the boys will want to go to college and get jobs (and become second class citizens). A friend of mine attended a high school graduation last week at a major Bklyn yeshiva. One of the speakers told the graduates that they should NOT go to college, and another said that it is the parents responsibility to support the kids into their 30s. I can’t comment because it would mean too many four letter words.
