It’s not a push.
He is visiting America to raise money for his yeshiva.
His illustrious yichis just goes to show his worthiness and that of his cause.
The fact that he is a massive tzadik and talmid chacham, and was raised by R’ Chaim, might say something about his gadlis.
DaasYochid-It’s very nice that you’re working on yourself in terms of sinas chinam, but instead of looking for an excuse to hate him, be dan l’kaf zechus and look for an excuse not to hate him. If you can’t think of a way to be dan l’kaf zechus, just forget about it, and excuse it as “he probably had a reason”, which is none of your business, and get on with life. Smoking is horrible (and אסור), as is unfiltered internet (as you can see in the recent “Aren’t Smartphones Assur?” thread, I’m not sure why people are complaining about smartphones when the real problem is unfiltered internet. Perhaps you can shed some light on this.) Sinas Chinam, along with not being dan l’kaf zechus and labeling, are undoubtedly worse.June 13, 2018 6:21 pm at 6:21 pm in reply to: Why do people think they could “trust themselves” with smartphones? #1539007
The Little- exactly. people are stating things that are very broad-what you said- blanket pronouncements. Just like the creator of this thread-MasmidInTraining.
For more about sinas chinam and smartphones, see the thread “Aren’t Smartphones Assur?” started by MasmidInTraining.June 13, 2018 1:05 am at 1:05 am in reply to: Why do people think they could “trust themselves” with smartphones? #1538419
MasmidInTraining- Every time you post you are getting yourself stuck deeper and deeper. It’s like a white lie-progressively getting worse and worse. לכתחילה, you should write down your posts on paper (or maybe press them into stone, because pens and paper are technically technology too(so is pressing into stone.אין לדבר סוף)) and mail them to a moderator, thereby limiting your use of 👿 technology.

Toi- you seem to be obsessed with tofu.June 10, 2018 11:00 pm at 11:00 pm in reply to: Why do people think they could “trust themselves” with smartphones? #1536898
Takes2-2tango- Maskim. Not being dan l’kaf zchus (labelling & judging) is a major problem, especially in yeshivishe circles. I daresay it is worse than unfiltered internet. It leads to שנאת חינם, which we know is a major problem. A smartphone (or computer, the point is the internet, not the size of the device) that lacks a proper filter will affect you, but not being dan l’kaf zchus will affect you & others. MasmidInTraining-you sound like that שוטה from the AC Is Assur rant. And yes, most things are technology-even shoelaces and toothbrushes. So next time, think before you open the pandora’s box of “Assur”. Let me guess- music’s assur too, right?

Masmid In Training- La’aniyas daati, regarding internet/pritzus there is no difference between a phone and a computer. May I ask by which medium you are posting to this forum? Did you hire a goy (or a guy who used to be a yid but now wears colored shirts) to sit at a device-which obviously you don’t possess-to post to this forum for you? JUST BECAUSE you have a dumb shita which is being choshesh many yidden (Oh sorry. Yehudim. 😉 ) doesn’t mean you should sit in front of a michshal (which, as we know, isn’t filtered, because why would we be dan l’kaf zchus?) and write them. When you’re in someone’s house-let’s say a rebbi or rov or someone else you look up to (obviously not some random guy off the street 😉 ), and you see a computer, you assume that it is filtered. If you saw said person with a smartphone, you would obviously assume that it’s filtered. Why, when someone is seen with a smartphone, are they all of a sudden a goy or a rasha?
Why aren’t you dan l’kaf zchus as you would be with a chashuva person? Judging and labeling are huge problems nowadays, and definitely more destructive than a smartphone with a filter or lack 😉 thereof.
You sound like a bachur (hence MasmidInTraining) who is full of dumb shitos. I know some people like that. Instead of using a computer-obviously not fitered-why don’t you just tell them to your friends?
V’shom Naaleh-not Neired 😉
Yes it was. Now I’m trying to find somewhere to buy it but no one has it online.
Daasyochid, I just posted my comment while yours was awaiting moderation, and now that you answered my post makes no sense. Thanks so much for the answer.
Thanks. That’s a good starting point. Anyone have any other information?
On the topic of original recordings, does anyone know if there is an actual studio recording of the song Sameyach which was composed by Mona Rosenblum and sung by MBD on the live In Jerusalem CD and HASC 5, and played by Moms on HASC 6 in a Mona Medley?
So I clarified with my friend today and he said it was Toronto, not Miami. Thanks. iacisrmma, I am referring to the one sung on MBD & Friends.
