the Ad I’m seeing on the side right now is for ”wheels to lease” they have a 2012 accord for $169/ month good car, awesome price!
on a bottle of cleaning product:
“BEFORE USING, READ DIRECTIONS, CAUTIONS, AND WARNINGS CAREFULLY”
“If you do not understand, or cannot read all directions, cautions, and warnings, DO NOT use this product.”
I see this all over New York:
The other answer is: if you haven’t had a car until now, don’t bother with it…
Leasing and buying (new) cars, are the biggest waste of money, even if you buy a new car and you plan on keeping it for 10+ years.
Buy yourself a 1-3 year old car, that’s in better than good condition. A car loses approximately 30% of its original value as soon as it is driven off the lot (in the first year) and a 1year old car will last you for ten or more years… If you get it certified from a dealer, you will probably pay a bit more, but you will have a warranty on it. If you buy it privately, you will save money.
From personal experience I can tell you the following: whatever you decide if it’s a used car, certified or not, spend the 80-100$ to bring it to a mechanic you trust and have them check out the car. Just because a car is certified, doesn’t mean it doesn’t have problems… Oh, also, ALWAYS GET A CARFAX (for the vehicle’s history, accidents etc.) – a dealer should pay for one, private seller, not necessarily – anything that has had a major accident will give you problems forever.
happym19 – how did i realize that I didn’t need it… Baruch Hashem, I was involved with a great organization who showed me that I didn’t need it. it was hard at first, but I managed… things to do….?
go for a walk…
i think its going to be hard to make her feel like its a regular day, because she knows its not… chesed might be your best bet…
when in doubt: shehakol potar et hakol… ?
you said: she used to keep shabbos but now feels she just cant.she knows that its important but she just feels its really not interesting and she said shes tryed a bunch of times but just doesnt feel she can, shell just be so bored and feel she has to do something.
The most important thing here is that she should know that she has support. if you are her friend, then you should be inviting her for shabbos as often as possible, let her know that you’re there for her for whatever she needs, support her, encourage her, NEVER make her feel obligated to anything, and make sure she knows that no matter what happens, you will keep doing that. if her family doesn’t keep shabbos, then obviously its going to be incredibly hard for her. so open your home, make it a ‘safe haven’ and show her the beauty of shabbos with your family, and do whatever it is u do to entertain yourselves on shabbos, and I’m sure things will work out.
for the record, Im not a rav or anything, just a baal techuva whose been through a kiruv organization, who has done some kiruv. work, and thats what I think.

The point I was trying to make is: why should smoker/non-smoker be such a deciding factor… just because a guy smokes, doesn’t make him a bad guy
WOW! I know that smoking and shidduchim don’t mix, but I never realized how STRONGLY people feel about it. I used to be a pretty big smoker (while in Yeshiva in Eretz Yisrael – i probably went through a pack every 1-2 days) now back home, I definitely don’t smoke as much, a pack usually lasts me a week, sometimes more)
I’m not proud of the fact that I smoke, I would never encourage it, and I’m constantly trying to quit (sometimes successful for longer periods of time than others)
Something to think about is that, the girl you will marry more likely than anything will not want to marry you if you smoke. If that girl means enough to you, then you will quit smoking just because of the kavod that you have to give to your wife.
Sometimes I light up a cigarette, and think to myself ”why am I bothering with this?”
The answer: because I have nothing better to do after davening, learning, school, and work, I have nothing better to do, so I smoke.
Im from Montreal, so my english isn’t the best… I hope I got my point across… !?!?!??
???? ????? ????? ????? – i don’t know if I spelled it right, or if it fits – mitzvah gedolah le’hiot be’simcha
I’ve never had an issue… people usually don’t have the chutzpa to say anything anyways. I’ve asked a couple times when I saw people come in if I was in their spot, and even then, when it seemed pretty clear that I was, they told me it was ok.

real brikser: Uhm… not sure of the proper terminology… yeshivish hat… brim down i guess ?
