    Your carry on cannot weigh more than 8 kilo. On my way there from EWR I had to check it in as a second bag. On the way back, I had to shuffle some seforim from the carry on to the suitcase to satisfy the carry on weight cap of 8 kilo. This was Jan 28 to Feb 4 of this year. Todah

    I agree that the OTD may gain from the relationship, but what will the son of this person have from it? A relationship needs to be two way, similar to a marriage, I guess. When one has something from it and the other doesn’t, “doesn’t” feels used and the relationship will fail. In our case, you’re opening up the possibility for the frum kid to save the relationship by bringing himself down to the level of the OTD, and that’s a disaster in the making

    A friendship is a two way relationship, jus like any other relationship. Both sides need to get something out of it.

    Can anyone please tell me the benefit that the son will have out of this relationship?

    (BTW, my son’s best friend went OTD, and yes, I was advised by Gedolim to discoursge my son from having anything to do with him. And boy am I happy that I listened. Other kids that said, “No, we have to be nice to him” are now right there with him, while my son K”H is shteiging away.)

    Black & white? What does that have to do with the OP’s question?

    He wants to know if he should allow his son to befriend his OTD friend. And the answer is, no, stay away like the plague. And yes, YELL IT OUT TO EMPHASIZE THE POINT. There is NO BENEFIT, I repeat, NO BENEFIT to the son in upkeeping a relationship with a close peer that is into drugs and the L-rd knows what else.

    I agree, it’s sad that this happened, but for the son’s sake DISCOURAGE him from maintaining this relationship.

    YOUR WIFE IS RIGHT.

    KEEP YOUR SON AWAY LIKE THE PLAGUE. THERE IS NO BENEFIT THAT YOUR SON CAN HAVE FROM THIS RELATIONSHIP. ONLY DETRIMENT.

    observer-

    I grew up yeshivish and still am yeshivish, but the way the women dress today is a nisayon for EVERYBODY. Whether they admit it or not, it’s a nisayon. BIG TIME. Women are revealing body parts that have been covered forever. Yes, even yeshivisha women are doing it. Come to my neighborhood, you’ll see a typical yeshivisha guy with the unkempt beard and dirty eyeglasses walking with his wife dressed like you wouldn’t believe; short, tight, etc. The scary part is, the younger generation of women are growing up with this, and they’re thinking it’s normal.

    As a manager of a (large) store, let me weigh in here. (Let me just say that in my store, we have a scanner system PLUS each and every item has a price sticker.)

    DaMoshe is CORRECT! Kvetching and complaining will not work most of the time. By causing the manager to have one of his employees dedicated to do a ridiculous, unnecessary, and preventable job, i.e. putting back all the more expensive brands that you brought up to the register, he will think of ways for this NOT to happen & then conclude that it’s worth it to make the prices clear. In the long run, it’s not only the prices that bring people in, it’s the pleasant shopping experience. Not having prices displayed makes for a rather unpleasant shopping experience.

    ATTENTION PEOPLE IN LAKEWOOD:

    You know those funny lines that they put on all the parking lots? If I’m not mistaken, I think that possibly, you’re supposed to park your car IN BETWEEN THE LINES. In other words, there should not be any part of your car over the actual line.

    I just spoke to someone who bought the Bosch with the stainless steel bowl online from cutleryandmore.com. It turns out that the stainless bowl that they sell with the machine is NOT the challah bowl. It’s a steel version of the plastic bowl, not the challah bowl.

    Nechomah,

    The older Bosch machines came with a metal “cap” that you click the wire whisk beaters onto. In the newer Bosch machines (4 -5yrs. old) that cap is PLASTIC. When mixing a cookie dough, if you use the plastic cap and whisk beaters, the whisks will bend or come apart and the plastic cap will bend into a pretzel. (I’ve seen it all!) For cookie batter, you need the METAL cap AND the cookie paddles. If you have the cookie paddles already, all you need is the metal cap.

    Clear?

    WIY,

    The steel bowl that they’re selling for $79.99 is a steel version of the plastic bowl. For challah you need the Steel bowl that mixes from the bottom. The dough hook from the plastic bowl will NOT work on the Challah steel bowl. You would have to buy the bowl with a cover and a dough hook and that one they’re selling for $169.99.

    A Bosch complete with BOTH bowls and dough hooks is $450.00 from them & $500.00 where I sell it.

    As someone who sells Kitchen Aid, Bosch, and Magic Mill, I can say with certainty that the Bosch outsells all the others by far.

    Those of you who are getting a good deal on Bosch mixers from the internet, just know that they don’t come with the Stainless Steel Bowl which you’ll need for Challah. To buy the bowl seperately will cost you in the area of $125.00 or even $150.00 (or more.)

    For those who don’t find the Bosch good for the heavy cookie dough, they have for sale a cookie paddle set that comes with a metal cap, that should take care of that problem.

    I really feel bad bad for them. Imagine being so destitute that you have to go around collecting in shuls. Nebach, how I feel for them. They have no morning, no night, just rush, rush, all day to put some pittance together so that they can finally fo back to their families. I really feel bad for them.

    I give them whatever I can, and when I don’t have or I can’t, I simply smile warmly at them and tell them (or gesture) that I just don’t have any money.

    in reply to: "Dating Early" Kol Koreh- Who's missing? #918298
    Yatzmich
    Member

    Pardon my frankness, but to have bochurin start dating early is a rediculous, non-sensical idea! If the divorce rate among young frum couples is on the rise, which unfortunately it is, then having bochurim starting to date at an earlier age will increase that rate tremendously. Today’s bochurim are less mature, not more mature. SaysMe is right. Have the girls wait till they’re 21 at least, to start dating. They’ll be more mature too, and they’ll probably have some type of career path set up and have a more solid stance on what their looking for in a husband, as well.

    As far as who is missing from the so called “Kol Koreih,” Start with many of the Ziknei HaDor such as Reb Yosef Rosenblum Shli”ta, Reb Chaim Epstein Shli”ta.

    In the State of New Jersey, one needs a specific “Barber’s License” aside from the regular local township “License To Do Business.” To acquire this Barber’s License one needs to take a state sponsored course on haircutting. That’s why you don’t find any frum barber shops around.

    This is one of the reasons that I stopped looking at Ami magazine many months ago. Many of their stories and articles leave you sayin, “What’s the point?” Some of the stories are just simply pointless without any (positive) lesson to to be taken from.

    Also, many of their articles are just “a bi” to get under your skin or to cause animosity towards someone or some group.

    myls87,

    Be smart & stay as far away from Lakewood as you can. The OTD rate for teens is climbing fast. Even for pre-teens. It’s rediculous. And Tznious? Forget about it. The women’s clothing is getting tighter & shorter by the week. Even by the “yeshivisha” people.

    And as far as getting your kids in to schools in Lakewood, be prepared to be humiliated and degraded and thrown from one bin to another.

    Princess,

    I assume that your a 15 year old girl.

    If your asking this question then you’re aware of the dangers lurking in these places.

    Forget the eating and stay far away from these places on Motzo’ey Shabbos. It’s almost impossible not to get caught in the trap, one way or another.

    Invite a few friends over and play a game or something, you’ll avoid the whole thing and feel good about yourself, too.

    Stay safe.

    Why do some women wear a sweater when it’s 80 plus degrees outside?

    For small areas, ceramic heaters are very good. They’re safe, and most brands shut off when tipped over. They’re also (relatively) cool to the touch.

    For larger areas, a good quality oil filled radiator heater is effective. An even larger area could require a second one, but usually not.

    Whatever you choose, especially the radiator, just give it time to heat the place up. They won’t heat up a room instantly, they need time to work.

    (P.S. I sell them.)

    To all you rediculous people that say that the men are looking too close, cut it out already.

    A woman on line in front of you @ the bakery is about 2 feet, probably less, Is THAT too close?

    What about the whole group of women that you have to navigate around sometimes to get out of shul on Shabbos, is THAT too close?

    What about the woman in front of you on line in the grocery that bends down to adjust her stroller or something and reveals about 6 to 8 inches of her lower back, is THAT too close?

    The bottom line; Women are revealing parts of their body that have been off limits for years, and the standard has lowered to levels of issur. Period. Stop. There’s nothing left to say. It doesn’t make a difference if it’s my daughter, your wife or somebody else.

    Rabbosai,

    I’m not paskening a shailoh or telling anybody what to do, I’m just responding to the following statement from zahavasdad, “Maybe B & H disables their websites, but you cant do that with eBay and Amazon.”

    As an aside, anybody who knows anything about the operations at B & H can figure out the high madreigah that they have to be on to totally shut their site to buyers on Saturday. It’s one of the most, if not THE most, popular day for online shopping and B & H does TREMENDOUS volume through their site. For them to just cut it off on Friday at sunset for 25 hours, is an amazingly high madreigah and is a lesson to all.

    zahavasdad-

    On eBay you can set your auctions to end not on Shabbos and if you’re only offering a buy it now, you can set you your items on vacation settings every Friday.

    On Amazon as well, set your account every Friday that your items should NOT be listed for sale.

    Do that and you’ll be on the same high madreigah as B & H.
