2qwerty- my friend actually had that issue 2 months ago: one night he went to the dr and his wife was going to have a procedure the next day to turn the baby and he spoke to a Rav who told him to make sure all his seforim he owned were rigth side up, the next day when they got to the dr they didnt need the procedure, apparently this is a segulah that the Steipler Gaon mentioned
10952- This isn’t the only alleged incident. As someone who has family living in BS, I know of many women who have had rocks thrown at their cars, bumped in the supermarket with the carts (even when pregnant) and other incidents. This is not a new problem and is much worse than spitting.
If the Beis Yosef had a copy of the Megillas Taanis (which is pretty clear wasn’t available back then) the question would never have gotten off the ground. The megillas taanis, which is the original source of Chanukah in addition to the megilas antiyochus and the Bimei Matisyahu, says that Chanukah is 8 days because that is how long the CHANUKAS Habayis lasted.Period. The end
Depending on how much time you have left, I suggest getting the Princeton Review book and spending some time on it. Focus on the type of math questions they ask as well as how the test is formatted and how the grading works. Knowing these things will help you the most.
Take your time at the beginning and make sure to get the beginning questions correct and you’re guaranteed a decent score. I did fairly well on the test by making sure to do well at the beginning (because these are weighted).
totally false, he never said that. it’s a rumor that goes back to the mid 90’s that he said it on Oprah but its not true. He even went onto Oprah to talk about how absurd the rumor was.
At my firm I work with tens of Koreans all of whom go by their real names. Also, the Indians go by those names. I am not saying that you have to officially use your real name as your email, you could still put your legal name on that but is Shaindy and Shlomo so hard to pronounce?
I personally think its really silly that many of the frum guys I work with (who all come from a large Jewish town in south Jersey) go by a goyish name at work. Its one thing if people can’t pronounce a “ch” but ppl can all pronounce Shmuly, Shlomo Ari…. The koreans, muslims and japanese dont all choose to go by a diff name at work and those names are impossible to pronounce
As someone who works for a major accounting firm, I think that unless you have a frum interviewer, the person will likely be put off by a not well kept beard. i know it sounds silly, but maybe ask your rav if he thinks its better to shape your beard rather than shave it off fully.
the most important thing to think about when it comes to these interviews is to show why you are different than the rest of the applicants who all have the same background and good grades.
Yumi Lowy is very good, he is not the cheapest out there either (he’s in the $1500 range). One very good singer I have heard who charges less than a thousand is Yonatan Shlagbaum. He has a very nice voice and is very, very leibedik. He sings with all of the different bands. If you’re looking to spend in the $1500 range then I recommend either Yummi Lowy or Benny Friedman. Benny is AWESOME!!! Great voice and very leibedik.
Thank you so much for your help. One more question- what is the story with early childhood care before kids start school, do people have babysitters or is there some sort of nursery for babies?
In terms of hashkafa, is there a mix of people?
