Well, really the only thing to take comfort in is to know and truly believe that this new stage your beginning has already been planned out by hashem. As much as we have to do our hishtadlus, our shiduchim have already been hand picked for us, so if you keep that in mind there will be no worrying, no anxiety and no “competition” with your friends, because you know that your friend will get her husband who is right for her and you will get yours.
Dont trust in this shiduch crisis nonsense.
True, but i was assuming it was a child in this case since the op didnt specify and its more common in kids. And in a childs case its easier to get under control with a cooperative school administration. As oppose to adults who would need to take legal action to stop it.
I dont think mozart or bach is any better than whats on the radio nowadays. Also the words to these songs are problematic, they are not the only issue with goyish music. A rabbi once gave a shmooz that the person who created the beat and tune to these songs “neshama” enters these beats and infiltrates yours, I’m sure nobody would want to be affected by these recording artists dirty souls.
Now if your going to get into songs that have dirty words and meanings, the problem is clear. How can one hear these disgusting lyrics and fantasies and then learn gemara the next day the same way he would if he had not heard the song. And the songs that may sound clean usually have some underlying message that you cant dig up from the surface.
whats a “chup”
Theres not one solution because every “bully” has a different reason for doing this. If this is for your child or someone school aged, ill assume that because he chooses to express himself over the internet instead of in person to the kid hes bullying shows that he has some fear about what hes doing. Once you point out who the bully is, you should show your childs principal the evidence and everything he needs to reprimand the bully. Im sure the school will be helpful in stopping this.
Well first off, the eye doctor will tell you when you first get them that you should take them out for naps, showers, swimming etc. however that doesnt have to be done.
I have mistakenly slept with them in all night a few times, only noticing it when i can see my alarm clock too clearly!, all that happens is they become very dryed out and almost stuck to your eye so you have to peel it off and imediatey soak it in solution
For a nap i wouldnt worry, depending on my mood i take them out. if i know im napping for more than 3 hours or so i take them out but not for an hour or two, worst that can happen is that they get sticky and you need to wet them…
Im not sure about the right and wrong on this issue, but i did hear from my rebbe that the text from the actual paper siddur have kedusha to it which you dont get from reading/praying from an electronic device.
What im saying is that we have to be careful that this day off doesnt soon turn into us celebrating this goyish holiday, especially since it doesnt have the leniency of being an “american holiday” as thanksgiving does – xmas is purely a christian holiday and no one will argue with that. We do see in our history as jews where something starts off innocent and can turn into avoda zara, or an aveira without anyone noticing it.December 18, 2012 4:22 am at 4:22 am in reply to: WAKE UP!!

simcha613- no one is saying to take it out of the rebbes salaries. There are tons of places to cut if the administration looks carefully at their spending. Not to mention that many schools DO charge a “security fee” with the tuition which could be around $750 and we are still left without any security guard or even a lock on the door. Ridiculous.December 17, 2012 3:32 am at 3:32 am in reply to: WAKE UP!! Our Yeshivas & Schools Are Open To The Public!! #913726
A Sheep without a spleen….You can’t say that having a security guard is throwing out yeshivas money which could otherwise benefit the rebbes. You would need to say the same for the computer classes, or the installation of security cameras or any other upgrade to the school. Part of opening up a school, be it a yeshiva or secular school requires certain necessities. Top notch security SHOULD be right up there with a good gemora curriculum.December 17, 2012 3:23 am at 3:23 am in reply to: WAKE UP!! Our Yeshivas & Schools Are Open To The Public!! #913725
I am in 12th grade in a boys yeshiva in brooklyn. We are about 150 boys, and im sad to say but if this man would chas veshalom had tried this on my school, the result would be worse than what happened on friday. Our security policy : “everyone is welcome to barge into our doors and go wherever you would like in our building, but we have cameras!”. This story really scared me because you cant really get any less security than what we have in our yeshiva, and im sure this is the same case for many of the yeshivas around the area. something has to be done, and a student approaching the administration about this wont help
easier said than done…but i feel that if i invest time at night reading about how to help myself, during seyder ill remind myself of what i read and it will push me
