Those ruling Taiwan are not the indigenous people. They are descendants of those who fled China when the communists too over.
And what is your point? What does Neturei Karta have to do with Jews, Iran or Morocco?? They are a unique cult based in the New York area.
Coffee Addict, do you think the Kushner suite is available for Shmini Atzeres? I assume Mar a Largo has the yuugest Succah in all of Florida with gold decorations. As Trump is still in Bedminster I don’t expect to see him the the Succah.
Can anyone explain why women are wearing these ridiculous garments?
Trump may believe that he won and is president just as there are people in the streets claiming to be Moshiach or have other delusions. That doesn’t give them authority to do as they want, they are usually ignored, laughed at or sent for psych evaluations.
Trump is German Xian and no Jewish ancestry at all unless the Germans are from the missins shvatim which is unlikely. The anti Semites may claim he’s a Jew like they did with Rockefeller.
I consider myself ‘modern orthodox” as I accept and observe all halacha but I have a secular education and work in a non Jewish environment. I wear a black hat, daven 3 times a day, hold by glatt meat and cholev Yisroel, am strict about tznius, don’t have TV or go too movies but read newspapers and interact with the world.
Everyone’s definition of “modern orthodox” differs. There is a huige difference between the teachings of Rabbi Samson Rafael Hirsch and Avi Weiss.

This Kennedy running for President a kook
You can get a Rolex real cheap from guys selling them on Canal Street.
They just post the news much of which isn’t very flattering to Trump who nobody thinks is an exemplarily role model for Yiddin. He has a long history of being a deadbeat, a serial liar and a serial adulterer and now he’s facing accusations and being held accountable.
Why drink coke on Pesach? What’s wrong with drinking heimish seltzer as our ancestors did?March 27, 2023 10:15 pm at 10:15 pm in reply to: Should girls wait for older sisters to get married? #2177577
I know of a 65 year old woman who is still waiting for her 72 year old sister to marry before she starts dating.
One reason that the prices seem high and there are potential shortages is the closure of the Shatzer bakery. In past years there was inexpensive matzah from the Ukraine which I doubt will be available this year. Don’t wain until erev Pesach to buy as you may be disappointed.
Here’s a link to a Satmar bakery: https://satmarmatzahbakery. com/
I don’t consider bourbon to be a food but Scotch is one of my favorite foods. Bottles of any single malt Scotch are much appreciated as shloch manos. For the 2nd item kichel or herring will do, anything except p’tacha.
My adult step children have been great.
The avreich should look into suing the NY Post for defamation. Their story differs greatly from the facts and he’s a private citizen.
Somebody must know who Yaakov M is.January 17, 2023 1:59 pm at 1:59 pm in reply to: Shidduchim Between Litvish Girls and Chasidish Boys #2157105
UJM, What is the basis of your assertion that there is a shortage of girls among chassidim? Assuming the proportion of male to female births is close to 50% among all Jews, why do you think the numbers differ between chassidim and misnagdin?
Nothing wrong with this kind of intermarriage. What is the ration of boys to girls among the Sefardim, and Bucharians?
Can anyone enlighten me as to what community standards I can violate if I become rich?

My neighbor dips a ball in honey at midnight before he bangs pots and pans. He has some unusual minhagim.
Yankel grew up in the Mt Eden area of the Bronx and was frequently seen walking with his father. I first saw him in Brooklyn around 2000 although I assume he left the Bronx much earlier as most of the Jews did.

If mainstream kashrus agencies would give hasgacha there are always the 2nd, 3rd and 4th tier hashgachas such as the Shakey K.
Contact with the married siblings machatonim can alert people as to how difficult they found the potential shidduch’s parents to deal with regarding the chassanah etc. I know families who wish they had been warned.November 21, 2022 11:54 am at 11:54 am in reply to: Florida Gov.

Do you all understand what pandering is?
Has anyone ever asked about their mesorah? Or who their great grandparents were?
Bakin 718-444-4869 a family owned company has moved several family members with no problems.
An interesting quote from one of those with an alternative lifestyle “This process violates one of our core queer Jewish values of ‘nothing about us without us,’” . Do they actually have Jewish values if they act on their passions in clear violation of what is most clearly stated in the Torah? There is no ambiguity as far as men participating in acts forbidden in Achrei Mos.
Smerel, where did you ever get the idea that Chuck Schumer’s wife isn’t Jewish? Iris is the daughter of
Melvin Weinshall and Ruth Weinshall of Brooklyn, parents with obviously Jewish names. There is a possibility that Ruth’s mother wasn’t Jewish, but 90 or so years ago intermarriage was a rarity.
I did not vote for Spitzer but have voted for Schumer who I’ve known since he first ran for Assembly many years ago.
I will not vote for the intermarried Jew who has a lesbian running made. There are something I just can’t do.

I haven’t noticed any comments about the fact that the yeshivas take government money or the possibility that parents could possibly be charged with educational neglect for not providing a minimal secular education.
My Rav told me to go to the wake rather than the funeral when I asked the shilah. The deceased was in an open coffin wearing a suit which he never did in the 20 years I knew him. He looked great!
I assume there are hetarim for a Chief Rabbi to attend a state funeral.
akuperma, do you have vultures in your neighborhood? Bird feeders have seeds and in the winter some include suet which is some kind of animal fat. Although they are birds, I don’t think vultures are attracted to bird feeders.
My next door neighbor has one and it never bothered me at all. What’s the problem with a bird feeder?
It’s not like throwing bread on the ground to feed pigeons and rats.
Curiosity, I saw videos of a surge of people with Trump flags and Trump hats breaking through barricades, attacking police officers and breaking doors and windows to enter the building but none of them being waved in. Are there different videos showing peaceful protesters being waved in? Where can I find them?
Why is Trump regarded almost as a deity who is infallible by so many?August 16, 2022 8:56 pm at 8:56 pm in reply to: The coffee room is ussor and I’m trying to make sure people chap #2115804
How does one determine if someone in the coffee room is a man or a woman? I assume Moish and Reb Eliezer are men but I can’t be certain that men are posting under those names.
I think I was wrong once.
Do any of you remember when Yujing Zhang weas arrested at Mar a Lago? Items found in her hotel room included a signal detector used to pick up the presence of hidden cameras, nine USB drives, five sim cards and a cellphone, $8,000 in cash and several credit and debit cards.
Mar a Lago was not a secure place to keep documents that even if declassified should not have been removed from the archives. The place is a resort with many people including possible spies of passing through.
At sentencing, the then 33-year-old said she went to Mar-a-Lago “to meet the president and family and just make friends”. It can be assume that there were others who weren’t caught.
