“The Chasidim have survived the past 60+ years in America without a serious secular studies program”
Thousands can never get real serious jobs due to their inability to spell etc.
I have a 35 year old chasidish friend, who just checked himself into night classes to learn how to READ ENGLISH.
And here is another issue. Not only do they not know how to read English, they no longer know how to read Yiddish.
So no, they are not surviving at all. they are failing miserably (in my humble opinion).January 23, 2013 11:03 pm at 11:03 pm in reply to: Busiest Hour in the Coffee Room #923138

The amount of comments which we (the mods) have not been approving are too much to handle.
It’s one thing to discuss this sad story, but it has reached a sickening new low of personal attacks, name calling, as well as people trying to post all types of other sensitive information.
Conversation is over.January 20, 2013 4:52 am at 4:52 am in reply to: Owning a Dog #922210
No reason whatsoever not to have a dog.
There is a reason why there are very clear halachos of how to take care of a dog on Shabbos (walking it etc). If it was osur to have a dog, it would very clearly say that.
Go buy one if you desire.

Bibi will do anything to stay in power. That is why he partnered up with Lieberman of Beiteinu. In reality, he hates his guts. The day after the elections, he will can him.

“but its not the same hat worn in Yehsivas. It seems similar to a hat the Famous Rambam Pictures have”
Actually, your dead wrong (over and over).
Again, Chacham Ovadia Yosef along with all Sefardim wear REGULAR black hats that are worn by all Yeshiva bochrim and avrechim in Eretz Yisroel.
He wears the clothing that the Sephardic “Rishon Letzion” wear only by his drashos, simchas, and when he appears in public. When he davens he wears a regular black hat like any other Rosh Yeshiva. His children wear the same hat as he does.

Chacham Ovadia Yosef wears a regular black hat, as do all Sefardim.
The clothing he wears to his drashos and simchos is the clothing that the sephardic rishon letzion in Eretz Yisroel wears.January 2, 2013 8:10 pm at 8:10 pm in reply to: Should "shmedrick" stop posting? #918088
Let it be known, that “shmendrick” has in the past used “goldenpupik” as a screename, before he was quickly blocked for being a troll.
He also claimed he was a woman in that screename.

The biggest honor by the Sefardim is to name a baby after a living grandparent. Most Sefardi grandparents have grandchildren named after them – during their lifetime.

Take him for a visit to Sloan Kettering Hospital in Manhattan. Show him the skeletons walking the hallways attached to their chemo drips, and he will think twice.

Sometimes there is one person using 12 different screenames to provoke response.

Wow, Mod 42, I was reading that 00:07:25 as 7:25am instead of 12:25am. You are correct, none of the posts I thought might be on Shabbos were. I apologize to Half. Please be mochel me for suspecting you of chillul Shabbos. I was trying to be dan lchaf zchus that maybe you woke up in the middle of the night and started posting without realizing the day but this is a much better explanation. Sorry again.

Nechoma, obviously we can’t be sure based on the IP. But like I said s/he was posting at the same time on Fridaay and Saturday (9am). There is nowhere in the world where it is muttar to post at both of those times the same week.December 15, 2011 10:05 pm at 10:05 pm in reply to: The Mechalel Shabbos Troll #839159
As far as I know there is nothing halachikly wrong with someone in Israel posting while it is still Shabbos in NY. The mods won’t approve it until after Shabbos wherever they are though.
Australia is about 15 hours ahead of NY so it makes sense that someone with an Australian IP is posting around 9am Saturday NY time since Shabbos is over by then. But it seems to me that this same prolific poster of many screen names is also posting at the same time on Friday morning when it should be past Shkia in Melbourne.December 2, 2011 3:10 am at 3:10 am in reply to: POLL: Do You Think YWN Should Have More Mods To Go Faster #832215
