    a mishna in meseches Soita –
    בְּעִקְּבוֹת מְשִׁיחָא חֻצְפָּא יִסְגֵּא,
    וְיֹקֶר יַאֲמִיר.
    הַגֶּפֶן תִּתֵּן פִּרְיָהּ, וְהַיַּיִן בְּיֹקֶר.

    I’m not really part of the debate being that I know nothing about medicine i got vaccinated because my rabonim told me to
    I just wanted to say that I got covid after two phizer shots and I was pretty sick and so was my wife so I dont know where the info that people who were vaccinated dont feel covid is from, but it should be checked

    I think most Sephardic minyanim daven vosikin on Rosh hashana when I was a kid I used to be embarrassed to tell my friends that we finished davening at 11:30 while everyone else was finishing at 2 or 3 pm

    which is also supply and demand
    since you have a specialized demand the suppliers can charge you more

    when it comes to prices the answer always is supply and demand
    since they’re supplying they can ask for as much as they think you will pay
    and there is demand because you have to buy

    are you talking about a girl or a boy?
    because if you’re talking about a boy the dance lessons itself should paint his face red if any of his friends were to find out

    there are places in Eretz Yisroel that don’t have enough police cars for law enforcement so they put up flashing blue and red lights just as a deterrent

    Participant

    if you feel hakoras hatoiv i think you should buy him something nice
    in my opinion a cake is not something that will make someone feel indebted to you
    but it will show him that you appreciate him and what he does for you

    my Rosh Kollel once said that when young avrech comes to get accepted he asks them where they learned in yeshiva if they answer in the Mir he asks them but where did you learn
    because in the Mir if you want you can learn but you also can do anything else you want with no real hadracha unless you yourself seek it
    this not to say that a bachur cant grow in the Mir I know quite a few chashuva avreichim that started out in the Mir
    about other yeshivas the rabbeim in your HS should be able to help you choose the Yeshiva that is best for you or the Rav of your shul

    i think the idea was that serving trump on rosh hashana when we are supposed to be serving the True King is a contradiction
    which is true but not funny
    its sad that people dont understand that voting for trump dosent mean we have to see him as the almighty

    the whole reason for testimony is chesed with the perpetrator so that he gets his atonement they a the first to punish bec. this shows their integrity and it gives them a chance to finish the chesed they started but still if they refuse they may be over an asei i’m not sure
    but either way the rest of the punishment will still be carried out bec. if not the perpetrator will miss out his caporoh

    the system works in Israel too
    unfortunately the system is run by government run hmos which means you cant always get the meds that you want because its hard to get a prescription for something thats not in the Sal Breut

    an Anglo ghetto is fine but the prices are outrageous
    especially the furniture packages that are offered to the unknowing Americans they range usually between 5000 and 15000 dollars for used furniture
    while you can furnish a small apartment very nicely for 3000 shekels or even less if you’re willing to go second hand
    and like my brother always says the reason they give out the red string at the kosel is so that everyone knows who the Americans are so they can raise the prices 🙂

    in reply to: Is trump really immoral #1835227
    yuda the maccabi
    Participant

    first we have to define what is meant by moral or immoral according to the Torah not oxford
    second, we cant judge just by what we see in the media being that the media shows only what they want us to see.
    and what someone wrote about being chasidei umos haolam – the definition is not someone who saves yidden it is a goy who keeps sheva mitzvos bnei noach – so if he ever stole anything he is already not a chassid unos haolam
    and there is a machlokes if a goy can do tshuvah

    contrary to common conception
    being happy is a choice or bechirah
    “ושמחת בכל הטוב אשר נתן לך ה’ וכו”
    to choose to look at the good instead of the bad is to choose to be happy

    contrary to common conception
    A person chooses to be happy or not
    “וְשָׂמַחְתָּ֣ בְכׇל־הַטֹּ֗וב אֲשֶׁ֧ר נָֽתַן־לְךָ֛ וכו'”
    the choice to focus on the good or the bad
