Yeah, different havaras tend to sound differently.
That’s the same word, ZD. Those are simply examples of two different havaras of the same word.
mentsch1: Those that hold that the kula of Cholov Stam (i.e. relying on governmental oversight instead of a Yid) is invalid, hold that such milk is therefore Cholov Akum and non-kosher. Even if it is really cow’s milk that was milked by someone not Jewish with no Jewish oversight, if one doesn’t accept the C.S./government kula the resulting milk is deemed C.A./non-kosher.
Pashut Halacha from Chazal is that any milk that came without the oversight of a Yid is considered Cholov Akum, and therefore treif, even if it is cow’s milk. Cholov Stam is a kula that you can rely on the government instead of a Yid for the oversight. If you don’t hold that is a valid kula (and many poskim do not, especially in the Chasidic world) then the milk is Cholov Akum/treif even if it is cow’s milk with an OU-D.
Sam, be a deep thinker. If someone gets out of NK they’re not flying directly from Pyongyang to New York. They’re certainly going to another country first. So they’re already out of NK before they get to the US. Keeping them from the US only means they must stay in whichever other country (South Korea, etc.) they’re already in. Not being allowed to travel to the US (which is one of 195 countries in the world) certainly does not mean being forcibly repatriated to NK.
There’s no such thing as too Hareidi. The more, the better.
And there’s no justification to dress to attract when in the public street even when one is in shidduchim.
It’s like the DUI defense. “You’re Honor I’m not responsible for the crime since I was under the influence of alcohol.”

I think the guys with the fancy cars and watches tend to end up marrying the gold diggers with too much makeup, manicures and bedeckled in jewelry.

He says the minhag of upsherin is cited in the Radvaz 2:608 and in Sefer Mat’amim Erech Sa’aros V’Otzar Minhagei Yeshurun based on Sukkah 42a.
Sorry, I don’t have the mekor offhand.
Judge Moore is a true American hero. He will be a real asset to the United States Senate and a representative for all traditional Americans.

I still don’t see a differentiation between a statue of a man and a photograph of a man in the sugya.
Let’s face it, those people who kick guests out of their seat, by and large generally do not help the poor guest find another seat. Those that do are in the minority, by far.September 27, 2017 11:08 pm at 11:08 pm in reply to: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Why Are Guys Stuck With The Dating Bills? #1372494
To the women kvetching they spend more than men due to their hairdos, makeup, nails, clothes and jewelry: all that put together doesn’t come close to what the guy spent buying his car and watch.
Would you say it is okay for someone who, like most, holds with the Psak of Rav Moshe and most contemporary poskim regarding an Eruv in NYC being assur and chillul Shabbos to carry, to give someone a package on Shabbos to carry within the Flatbush or Boro Park Eruv since the Flatbush and Boro Park Eruvs has on whom to rely?
dafbiyun, if your Posek holds Cholov Stam or sherry casks are treif (and the shitta assuring Cholov Stam because they consider it Cholov Akum effectively holds it is treif), then you cannot give that tarfus to another Yid even if he holds it’s kosher. Since as far as you’re concerned it is treif.September 27, 2017 5:38 pm at 5:38 pm in reply to: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Why Are Guys Stuck With The Dating Bills? #1372370
RY23, how does that explain the Yiddishe minhag that the Kallah’s family gives the Choson a dowry?
If you hold sherry casks are not allowed to be used, then you can’t give it to another Jew — even if the other Jew uses it.
If someone doesn’t use Cholov Stam he shouldn’t be giving it to other Yidden. (Since he holds it is assur [as his shitta is that it is Cholov Akum], he can’t give it to a Jew.)
What is the reason you don’t use sherry casks (whatever that is)?September 27, 2017 3:25 pm at 3:25 pm in reply to: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Why Are Guys Stuck With The Dating Bills? #1372000
1. The first several dates with any girl could (and should) easily be done in a lounge, which you listed as costing $9.52.
2. How many are considered to be the first several dates can vary bein gavra l’gavra, but l’chol hadeios it could be the first two dates.
3. So the higher costs are really only kicking in starting on the third or fourth date. How many different girls do you even get that far in numbers of dates? Most dates that don’t work out, stop before too many dates occurred. So you only incurred the lower costs of the first or first few dates.
4. You wrote that even other than lounges you found, effectively, cost-free dating venues. You can re-use those same cost-free, or almost cost free, venues every-time you reach a third or fourth and higher number of dates with each different girl. Just because you went somewhere already with a different girl doesn’t preclude you from going there with another girl. After all, your very worthwhile goal is to reduce costs.
5. Many of the venues you listed, especially the higher cost ones, are completely inappropriate for a Yid to be dating at. And they should, and easily can, be avoided. Movies — really? Goyishe professional sports arenas? C’mon. Even eating out dinners you can find much lower costs eateries than you listed. No one needs to show off what a fancy shtaty guy he is by going to La Mizerei (or whatever crazy names these restaurants use.)
6. There’s a lot be said about the very Yeshivish and Chasidish dating systems. Virtually all of your diatribe would be entirely inapplicable in those systems. I assure you that our Zeidas and Bubbes in the Alte Heim did not date in fancy restaurants — if they went anywhere outside of their homes altogether when meeting prospective futures Kallahs. And they found very good shidduchim.
For the record, what Judge Moore stated was “I want to see virtue and morality returned to our country and God is the only source of our law, liberty and government.” In other words, he advocates enacting Biblical law into American law.
He advocates having the Aseres Hadibros in all public courts, not a tzelem.
Sam, if domestic U.S. law directly contradicted Halacha on a certain matter where American law required you do something that is assur, will you follow American law or Jewish law?
Does milk need a hechsher for someone who is meikel to drink cholov stam?
Because the entire idea of cholov stam is to rely on the government’s “hashgacha” for milk without needing Yidden.
The Nitei Gavriel has a comprehensive discussion on this inyan regarding the upsherin.
The yingele shouldn’t see anything tumah (hence wrapping him in a Talis when taking him from home to Yeshiva).
I only use OU certified shampoo.
The Toronto frum community is the same demographics as Boro Park?
That’s news to me.
Any talmid of mine is a real student.
Avi, why do you think an Eved Ivri who wishes to remain an Eved gets his ear drilled?
And why do you think Halacha explicitly discourages a Yid from freeing an Eved Knani?September 26, 2017 1:56 pm at 1:56 pm in reply to: Is hanging pictures of leaders considered to be Avoda Zora? #1370143
What’s your halachic basis for differentiating between a statue of a person and a photograph of a person?
in Prague when the alteneushul broke away there were many teshuvos written and you can research those
The fact that so many teshuvos were written is an indication that this is a real shaila and not, as some are dismissing it, “Why do people insist on complicating everything” and just do whatever/however you feel.
When did Hannity quote YWN and on what subject, coffee addict?

Avi, dearest. My comment pertained to desiring to be a slave to humans. Which, as I stated, is prohibited for a Jew to desire. A goy has no such proscription.September 26, 2017 10:22 am at 10:22 am in reply to: The Top Ten Challenges the frum world faces right now. #1369942

Exactly. Post #1369859 is a perfect example of that.
Meno, which course at Touro was that in?
A Jew is prohibited from desiring to be a slave. Jews are masters in this realm. Hence the Eved Knani.September 26, 2017 12:27 am at 12:27 am in reply to: Is hanging pictures of leaders considered to be Avoda Zora? #1369801

Chochom: Not every Rebbe’le is from the Gedolei HaDor. That’s all I meant by differentiating between the Chasidishe Gedolei Yisroel and other Rebbes. For example, the Satmar Rebbe zt’l was a Rebbe’s Rebbe.
As far as the difference, sure, but how is it different as far as avoda zora is concerned, which is the topic under discussion here.

chochom: You think every Rebbe’le is on the same level as, say, the Satmar Rebbe, Gerrer Rebbe, Skulener Rebbe, etc.? Of course there are Chasidish Gedolei Yisroel.
And how is hanging a picture of a Godol different than hanging a picture of another leader, insofar as A”Z is concerned?
iac: I was responding to catch yourself’s comment immediately preceding my response.
If someone asks a guest to move in your Shul, who is responsible for finding him a new seat — especially if by time the regular guy finishes his coffee and arrives just before שׁוֹכֵן עַד there are no more other seats?
Actually they are contractual employees, not independent contractors. But this is irrelevant because even if they were independent contractors the team has a right to provision their contract that they are required to stand for the anthem or the team will have the right to immediately terminate their contract if they fail to do so.

Actually Chasidishe Gedolim tend to be the most makpid in prohibiting such photography.
Forcing guests to wait until Borchu to sit down in unclaimed seats is unreasonable. That is way late, and by time the minyan is up to Borchu guests aren’t going to suddenly start moving around into unclaimed seats in midst of davening. If Baruch Sheomer passed and a seat is unclaimed, it is late enough to be hefker.
Also, often when a guest asks others sitting near an unclaimed seat whether it is available, they either don’t know, shrug or they say it is late enough that it is available. Then the late bird shows up thereafter when the guest is already seated there.
