    in reply to: Choson & Kallah Walking Together Into Wedding Hall – Jewish or Gentile? #1475480

    Benignuman: I’m not sure how many such Jewish weddings you’ve been to, but unfortunately the ones I’ve been to that do this shtick in almost all the cases the Choson and Kallah both came in to the door going into the women’s dance floor, even though there’s two doors, one leading to the men’s dance floor and the other leading to the women’s dance floor. Nevertheless they didn’t each go directly to their respective gender, initially.

    No. The vast majority of women who call themselves Chareidi are Torah observant and would never consider violating prohibitions against women being judges or against arkaos, serving or participating in a non-Jewish/non-Din Torah/non-Beis Din case.

    Benignuman: I was so told by several non-tribesmen (indeed all those I asked) that this is a common or standard fare at non-Jewish nupitals. I was also told by several older members of the tribe (indeed all those I asked) that in the alte heim the Choson and Kallah didn’t jointly walk into the dance floor of one of the genders, but rather each walked into the dance floor of their respective gender (without their new spouse appearing on the wrong side of the dance mechitza.)

    Additionally, they didn’t have the now almost ubiquitous (in some quarters) announcement of “Welcome for the very first time, Mr. & Mrs…”, that is also (I’m told) a common theme at weddings of non-members of the tribe.

    Gaon, if someone doesn’t drive the strong likelihood is that they’ll be outside less often than if they’re a licensed driver with a car.

    Phil, while you’re focusing on the Rambam, I also cited, in the same sentence, the Shulchan Aruch on it. We do pasken from S”A even if not necessarily from the Rambam. The Shulchan Aruch doesn’t pasken two times; the Mechaber only psakens that women shouldn’t go outside too much, without specifying a number. This isn’t a “fake halacha”, Phil. This is an actual Psak in the Shulchan Aruch.

    What is “too much” is probably different for each woman and each circumstance. But it certainly is Halacha l’maaisa that women should not be outside unnecessarily or too much. For example, girls or women certainly shouldn’t be congregating on street corners shmoozing. This is Halacha from Chazal, Shulchan Aruch and everything in between and since.

    And this Psak from the Mechaber plays a direct part for the shittas that rule that women aren’t permitted to drive.

    Regarding eyesores, if you c”v saw a Jew eating a cheeseburger in McDonald’s that too would be an eyesore. Ever seeing a Jew doing something inappropriate is an eyesore.

    1200 lost neshomas/spiritual lives (40% of 3000) is a far bigger holocaust than four lost physical lives.

    Avi, with all those government programs, for whoever gets them — certainly far from all Yeshivish families, Yeshivish families still pay a huge portion of their income, on average, for Yeshiva tuition.

    Avi, Yeshivish families don’t get any government scholarships to reduce their Yeshiva tuition costs.

    “it is a well known ma’amer of Chazal I am quoting. It refers, I believe, to eating. Not jumping.”

    You believe the Chazal means that if someone failed to eat General Tso’s Chicken or Chinese food in his life, he’ll be punished in Shamayim?

    Maybe we should say Al Naharos Bavel instead of Shir Hamaalos, I mean that tis where the passuk of Im Eshkacheich is found.

    Gaon,

    Rav Vozner is not Chasidish. Everything you just said doesn’t dispute the fact that it is minimally the “minhag” hamakom.

    Are you really trying to claim that if a Kiryas Yoel woman or a New Square woman or a woman from one of the many Chareidi (including most non-Chasidish Chareidim in Eretz Yisroel) communities where women do not drive, wants to drive then she can disregard the community and simply drive at will?

    Takes2: No one disagrees that it is a machlokes haposkim, with great names on both sides, whether women may drive.

    ghdora: The Mechaber didn’t give this Psak “over a thousand years ago.” And Klal Yisroel has accepted the Psakim of the Mechaber given in the S”A as binding. Furthermore, this Psak comes directly from Chazal. And even moreso, no one, that’s right no one – not before the Mechaber and not since the Mechaber, argues against this Psak in S”A (that’s also in the Rambam.)

    Rav Avigdor Miller on saying Lashon Harah About Golda Meir

    Q: Isn’t it lashon horah, slander, to talk negatively about a personality; for instance the way you spoke about Golda Meir?

    A: And the answer is it says לא תלך רכיל בעמיך – “You should not speak gossip or slander among your people.”  And the Gemara says בעושה מעשה עמך – “Only when they do the deeds of your people.”  Now, if somebody breaks away from her people and she becomes a Marxist, and doesn’t believe in Hakadosh Baruch Hu, then she’s an atheist, and she doesn’t deserve any consideration. And therefore it’s a mitzvah to tell the truth about that person. And the truth is that she is a Socialist and a Marxist, and is an enemy of Hashem and the Jewish people. And therefore, there is no reason why should we spare her the truth.

    “Moderator: The order of my posts matter. You put reply 1469551 before 1469549.”

    If the order matters, it is best to put the replies in one post. The new system orders posts based on when they were approved, unlike the previous system that did it based on when it was submitted. You can tell which were submitted earlier, even if they were approved later, since the earlier posts are assigned a lower number even if approved by a moderator later.

    “The Mishnah Berurah uses that example regarding the issue of covering your head for mentioning Hashem’s name in general, not specifically for bentching or davening. It’s clearly two separate issues.”

    How are you separating them? You obviously say Hashem’s name during davening and bentching. If you need it in general for Hashem’s name, kal vachomer for davening/bentching.
