  • in reply to: Does Planet Earth exist, in Torah terms #935798

    i am not getting the thread,

    the earth surely exists, your question seems to be how it is referred to in biblical hebrew

    in reply to: SHMAD! #935730

    Gavra at work, starting with gedoilim is dangerous, starting with a p’sak of numerous gedoilim and poiskim is akin to starting with the toira itself.

    Also be aware that there were numerous gedoilim from previous generations who held this way, and the mainstream army has only grown worse.

    in reply to: Wherein Golders Greener Came Late For SchoolóSerial Story #993827

    But before the boys could even think about walking around the lakes, malfoy appered. He stamped down loudly on their unshod feet with his nailed boots enjoying heraing the creaking sounds of their bones as they bore his weight.

    Even as he had his foot on golders greener’s the woman with spikey purple hair waved her hand towards his feet, and shputed Accio shoes. For asecpnd malfoy found himself in his stocking feet standing on those of goldersgreener, but she soonshouted waved her wand a second and shouted accio feet, and malfoy saw his feet slip away from undeer him while he was left dangling in mid air.

    in reply to: Wherein Golders Greener Came Late For SchoolóSerial Story #993821

    Rabbi Corn… was sitting in the prinicipal’s office in the PH school, dreaming of further ways to torture his boys, when a sharp bang on his door brought his attention back to his surroundings.

    “Rabbi,” Malfoy burst in. “Golders Greener and chicken pulka are wearing muggle shoes”

    “They’re not wearing any shoes” responded voldermort. “I’ve cast a most brilliant spell upon their feet. There is no one who can undo it – unless Popa was involved.”

    “I think it was someone called shoe store assistant from the US.” responded Malfoy.

    “Garbage. How would she have known about platform nine and three quarters? How did she get here?”

    As soon as Malfoy left the room, voldrmort googled shoe store assistant, his rage boiling inside him. When he found YWW coffeeroom, his rage only increased. Why popa’s magic had cast it’s way here too. His body shaking with anger, he immediately deleted as many of her threads and posts as he could find.

    In the meantime, snape/maddern has called the poor boys together for their sports lesson and told them to remove all their footwear, and then hop around the yard.

    Toi, r’ Dovid obviously realised about you with his ruach hakoidesh.

    in reply to: Dear Popa Bar Abby (Advice Column) #1092044

    Having a system where everyone [perhaps including mods] realise that at least one person knows their name will itself make sure that people think twice before posting.

    in reply to: Suggestion #929636

    Shoe store assistant, don’t feel too stupid. I was wondering about it too. (although something tells me that you know more than you are letting on ????)

    in reply to: Dear Popa Bar Abby (Advice Column) #1092042

    No offence meant to anyone who posts here, but in view of what seems to be happening, perhaps it is time for a system where every poster gives his personal details and REFERENCES to the moderators before being allowed to post.

    in reply to: The Popa #929912

    He generally wasn’t considered to be such a bad guy

    in reply to: Wherein Golders Greener Came Late For SchoolóSerial Story #993818

    Keep working on it, SSA.

    The serial is supposed to be continued by the readers.

    in reply to: Israeli Supreme Court #929261

    The purpose of a supreme court is to ensure that democratically elected government do not make undemocratic laws.

    If one were to have a system as they do in America, then theoretically, were there to be a majority of a certain type of people they could force undemocratic laws on the people.

    In egypt, for instance, the president has appointed a court, and in turn they have approved a far more radical constitution, with sharia as basic law, which no legal figure would ever recognise as democratic.

    To put things differently, democracy is fair, but it is not necasarily right. [For instance why should i pay higher tax just because so many people were stupid enough to vote for Obama?]

    I am not justifying the israeli supreme court in any way, i’m just pointing that the system suggested defeats the entire purpose of the court.

    Just wondering what happens when you guys click on my name?

    in reply to: On the ball, and off the wall #929263

    Definitely an interesting idea.

    Why don’t you google the expressions and see what you come up with?

    in reply to: Confiscating Shoes #994365

    What a child wears is the parents decision. For the school to involve itself with the clothing or footwear is overstepping boundaries.

    There are two exceptions:

    If the school has rules about clothing, i.e. uniform, sports shoes for sports, etc… then obviously they should enforce them – without humiliating the child.

    If a child misuses an item of clothing or footwear, say he throws his shoe(s) at a teacher or classmate, then obviously it is the educators right to proceed as they see fit. I have given another example in the above thread.

    Confiscating footwear if a child comes late to school is definitely overstepping boundaries. The punishment is also out of proportion and unreasonable.

    Always remember, a child’s ego is very fragile, and humiliating them in public is never a good idea.

    in reply to: Waking Up Your Kids #993756

    I don’t know who restarted the confiscating shoes business again, but I will just say as follows.

    If you really want to use this as a way to get child out of bed, I would suggest parking your car within ten metres of your front door, and at whatever time that you are supposed to leave for school taking their shoes out to the car.

    Always remember, a child’s ego is very fragile, and humiliating them in public is never a good idea.

    in reply to: Two Things to Remember Before You Order Your Palestinian Passport #906824

    I can think of numerous other things to remember before ordering a palestinian passport – including that tehri constitution still forbids any yid to live there, and forbids an arab to sell land to a yid on pain of the death penalty.

    in reply to: BDE because of obama #906254

    Guys, how do you get bold and italics? I don’t seem to be able.

    in reply to: LEITZONUS !!!! #923184

    SSA, I don’t think elected leaders are included in the halachois of kings.

    Somehting about taking off your shoes does ring a bell, but i think it is only when you ask mechila, and probably only someone who has real semicha.

    Are you sefardic by any chance? I think sefardim are much more stringent about halachois of kevoid chachomim.

    Sorry guys, but i think we need better ideas on what to do now that we have four more years of obama.

    in reply to: Oomis, We Miss You! #1091378

    i second that

    in reply to: The chazoin ish, hurricane sandy, and generators. #906518

    perhaps ironic. probably not much more.

    Rabbaim is that what you meant too?

    in reply to: AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO IS BOTHERED BY THIS? #908328

    what botheres me about the story is that most the terms and ideas can only be understood by a chassidishe. How many of our posters know what “mudneh” means, or have any idea what a chassidishe shtiebel looks like on a yohrtzeit?

    in reply to: Cousins Marrying #930413

    147, are you sure that you do not mean R’ azriel Auerbach? It would make more sense

    BTW, see the end of parshas behaloischa what happened to tzippoira when she expressed her opinions about a godol’s “marriage” – and she was a sister, and on a much higher madreigoh.

    in reply to: Coincidence or Not? #902079

    I think mrs katz’s theory is not a contradiction to all teh all the other theories. As long as there is sholoim by frum yidden, hahsem protects everyone. once there is no sholoim, then perhaps the middas hadin is mekatreig?

    in reply to: My Mother in Law's complaints #901421

    mrs. katz, it is a pleasure.

    BTW, there is no need to answer every suggestion on YWN, or to release more and more personal info about your kids ages, genders or where they walk in theri socks.

    in reply to: Vizhnit – MEOR CHAIM – Ernster's #907141

    The little i know – you seem to know more than me.

    Could you tell me how r’ velvel ernster is related to the meisels of seagate? And where does the satmar meisels fit in?

    in reply to: Ruach Kodesh #1031393

    Just thought that i would share a good story with you guys. there was once a meeting of group of Poretz’s in poland. one poretz announced that he has a jew in his neighborhood who can forsee future events. The other poretz’s made fun of him for his naivete.

    Finally one poretz stood up and said, “let us call him and ask him if he knows when he will die. Then immediately afterwards i will kill him, and i will prove that he does not know what he is saying.

    They called the yid and asked when he will die. He said, “poretz, i don’t now what day i will die, but one thing i know, that you and i will die on the same day.”

    you can rest assured that the poretz did not kill him.

    in reply to: My Mother in Law's complaints #901415

    I feel a bit like that mahts one were they keep on repeating PEDMAS time and time again.

    SSA, shoes are not a big issue, paper plates are not a big issue, and the average person does not resent her mother in law buying her children shoes.

    HOWEVER, every person seriously resents being controlled by a mother in law. A mother in law who tells a grandchild shabbos shoes are a waste of money, or inversely, your mother neglects you, i will buy you shabbos shoes, or even i don’t care what you do in e”y, but you are not coming to my chasuna in your dirty clompy sneakers, is seriously overstepping her boundaries, and is sure to be resented by her dil.

    The thread of this post was not is it normal to buy your grandchildren a second pair of shoes for shbbos, i am 100% sure that in MOST cases both the parents and children appreciate it, the point was how hsould mrs. katz deal with a controlling personality.

    in reply to: Cousins Marrying #930408

    I am really impressed with all your guys kowledge of history.

    By us it was once noigea’ah so we went to ask a Rav and he told us,

    a) only to do it if the siblings and spouses – potential mehcutanim – are not strong characters, as there is often a certain amount of disagreement with mechutanim, and if they are siblings it can really get out of ahnd.

    b) to take care of allblood work and financial discussions before the couple meet.

    c) he told us that if it looks good, it is really worht doing, because you already know all the chesroinois, and you are much better off than with someone that you do no know.

    in reply to: Gateshead #935673

    The seminary there are supposedly very good.

    There is an option for courses in a moissad called AWIT run by a family Grunbaum. the seminaries allow girls to pursue courses there in their spare time, and i think their courses are recognised by many of the english universities. Hatlzocho.

    in reply to: Gateshead #935667

    In terms of schools, the boyts schools actually end at tenth, it’s the girls schools which end at eleventh, but many schools have the option of twelth. they call it sixth form.

    in terms of community gateshead is extremely strict, with seperate times for boys and girls to shop, all sorts of rules what the shops may sell… etc. it is also extremely litvish

    in reply to: Vizhnit – MEOR CHAIM – Ernster's #907133

    The official rebbe is R’ moishe ernster, who is in nineties and suffers from alzheimers ?? ?????. his son r’ velvel is basically in charge. he is a son in law of the Veitzener rebbe from chicago.

    in reply to: My Mother in Law's complaints #901410

    BTW,oomis, i always thought your name was short for omnisprescent!

    in reply to: My Mother in Law's complaints #901409

    I feel really privileged to communicate with the a bubby like oomis, and even more priviliged to have been agreed with by goldres greener. (2nd time on this thread!)

    ???? ???… ????????

    in reply to: My Mother in Law's complaints #901406

    Shabbos shoes themselves are not a big issue, nor are paper plates or walking around in socks, what is a VERY BIG ISSUE, is that mrs. katz has had a VERY TRYING yom tov, with a mother in law who does not know limits.

    ?? ???? ??? ????? but say your kids live in eretz yisroel, and seemingly pople there do not have shabbos sheosm your children will probably not wnat to be the rich americans on the block with shabbos shoes. when i grew up no one had shabbos sheos, and perhaps in soem places parents consider it to be spoiling their chidlren, etc..

    in reply to: My Mother in Law's complaints #901394

    i really feel privileged to be communicating with you, oomnis!

    in reply to: what's the big issue #900389

    ZD, venahapoich was joking, see various other threads to get the joke.

    BTW, why would nobody listen? If say, the belzer rebbe would say what footwear to wear, i am sure th chassidim would listen. [he probably does already.

    Mrs. Katz it is a pity that people do not from last experience, and stop the fighting this time round.

    in reply to: My Mother in Law's complaints #901389

    Oomnis, it depends a lot on the way it is doen. If someone critisises her dil and tells her that her children look neglected, and she wants them to wear different shoes on shabbos, or “there is now ay they arre coming to the chasuna looking like that” then they are asking for trouble.

    Yes, a caring and doting – and responsible bubby can buy her grandkiks shabbos hsoes, but it can also be done very wrong.

    Remember slao that if the children live abroad or in a different community, they may feel uncomfortable standing etc…

    Bottopm line, it all depends on seichel

    in reply to: what's the big issue #900385

    The chief Rabbi has loads of power in terms of opinion. He appears with every freign leader, attends every event. Let’s say it goes to a mizrachi and he expresses his opinion that everyone should do aliya, or all chareidim should go ot the army. With the title of chief rabbi of Jerusalem the media will all pay him homage, and write up on it.

    in reply to: One More Shoe Question #911420

    WIY, how could he have worn Shabbos shoes if shabbos hadn’t yet been created?

    in reply to: My Mother in Law's complaints #901375

    Mrs. Katz, one more point.

    I would not advise you to appraoch your mother in law on any of these indivual issues, because if you show the need to convince her, that in itself is empowering her.
