    How could you just unfunnyize like that? In times like these?? It’s a bright sunny day today. (somewhere, in the forbidden outside, on top of those gloomy looking clouds!)

    Liven up, cheer up a bit!!! You’re alive (I suppose). GREAT!! Something especial to be thankful about these days. וחי בהם, to live life…

    SMILE… IT’S (ALSO) CONTAGIOUS. Do it for me. For you. For the world!!!

    WOW!!! Still around spouting these messages….

    We all need to do teshuava, some more than others. Yeah, you guessed it… little me. Major job in store, big renovations in all areas of YiddishKite, hope to get at least somewhere.. HELP!!

    HOWEVER… none of this has anything to do with the haphazard jungle of synapses spewed above. Yes, everything in the world is for us, for us to learn something… for us to take to heart… הכל בשביל ישראל, it’s not for us to claim these “messages” straight from above.. or that “HaShem is just waiting / needing for our message to be broadcast…” Or better yet “He’s waiting for you to join our movement”

    I have a niggling feeling somewhere that a Navi didn’t go around shouting “See what happened to the Yankeess? that happend on (Goyeshe date of)… turn the numbers upside down… SO THAT’S A SIMAN YOU SHOULD DO TESHUVA….” I have a feeling messages “from Above” were of a different nature…

    And the messengers too, they were נביאים טובים, good, caring, humble, sincere and all the other exemplary fine character traits HaShem would look for to send His word earthward through. They had no need to speak to Bnei Yisroel condescendingly.

    Thanks for that one, too. Actually I’m in to planes, too (I’ve flown a few times), that was one of the reasons for my s/n (unique spelling). But the real reason was the above, it came to me as a flash, two years ago, when someone actually DID call me that (gasp!)

    Actually, if I may, there is a reason for standing up for a Kallah too. One is supposed to stand up and give honor to ANYONE on the way to do a Mitzvah. (I think that is why one stands for a chasan going to his chuppa)

    kfb:

    Actually, he meant the same gender, regardless if Jewish. If I remember correctly, afilu nachri bshuk, even a non-Jew in the street. It does not say the same about a woman. Please read my earlier posts. I’d not like to get into arguments. (It bode me no good previously). I will ??”? not be drawn into machlokes, argument, bickering etc. It’s not what I’m here for.

    Regarding your statement about our religion now being “judgmental”, kindly remember the sheer hatred Rabbi Akiva had, when yet unlearned, towards Talmidei Chachamim. Do you begin to fathom the Kedushah that permeated our nation then? How every single issue was weighed and analyzed from all angles before taking action. Our code of laws nowadays is but an echo of the laws and customs followed in the era of the the Tanaaim, Bais Hamikdash.

    They sure were ohev as habrios umkarvon ltorah (take a peek at Avos), but it definitely was not a free-for-all, anything-goes, friendship, brotherhood society. No. Not at all.

    Oomis, honestly I don’t know about your first statement.

    About your second one, again, I’ll just posit that it matters where one finds oneself. In one community it’s just proper to do so, rude not to. In another it’s flirting, an extra word or attention extended to the opposite gender.

    If I recall, there’s a woman in the Torah named “Shlomis bas Divri”, I think Chazal say she was accustomed to greeting all (even men) in the street “Shalom alach, Shalom alach”. It didn’t do good for her.

    In my opinion, it depends on the community you’re in. In some communities they consider it flirting, in some communities that’s the norm. Remember, Bruia chastised a Tanna for speaking to her two extra words. So in a community where it’s not done, they may consider it flirting. In a community where it’s done, to not do so would be snobbing, rude. That’s my opinion.

    WOW, Right on!! I’ve heard that too. A lot of BT come back with full zest, while the FFB look outside perhaps longingly.. And, I think, that’s another reason why a BT stands higher than a tzaddik gamur. His/her new ever-burning zest to strive for Ratzon HaShem.

    But then again one must make sure this BT has gone through the proper process, headed completely in the right direction, else…

    I certainly don’t think following HaShem’s explicit commandments is making a chilul HaShem. What kind of issur d’oraita is there? And furthermore, as far as plain mentchlichkiet is concerned, just a bit of an explanation will do.

    Yekke:

    I have no idea what those characters mean.

    But no, I’ve not been cleared as yet (1 1/2 months later). Pain still here. No apology sent (OBVIOUSLY she knows my email, she had it virtually broadcast here for all, to maximize damage), no retraction from that allegation. So while it’s only an online thing, those terrible stinging and damaging words made a big dent. As I wrote somewhere else, I used to hang out here as my second home (ok, a bit too much), I’d give & get chizuk, pieces laden with feeling, comfort. To make a difference in someone’s else’s life, as well to brighten my own. A cute quip, a smile, a hearty laugh – SUNSHINE. It’s down to a shadow now, I doubt if I’d EVER be able to resume.

    I’m aware there were some who were annoyed with my appearance before, I understand why they came to join the Halbanas Panim party, what I can’t understand is the rest of the people here, how they were so easily swayed.

    I personally think one shouldn’t view HaShem’s mitzvohs c”v as frustrating. Not that I really suspect the posters here of that.

    I’ve heard (in the name of some Gedolim) that due to the previous generation’s viewing mitzvohs as such, even though they were meticulous, got the younger ones turned off.

    My take?

    I also think the changing table would have been the proper option (though I’ve done it DISCREETLY in the provided cradle). But she was TOTALLY out of line, totally. So it wasn’t your husband’s actions that really set it off, it was her. No. There is no shortage of sonei Yisroel. And your retort, while I really don’t think you’d do that in a calm, peaceful atmosphere, was brought upon by her. OK, it was incorrect, but ??? ??? ???? ?? ??? ????, a person cannot be held accountable for something he does under extreme duress, pain. It was some sort of attempt to deflect from your humiliation, mortification. An attempt to “fight back”. I don’t blame you the least.

    Think of this episode as another painful galus wound, another tear bringing our geulah closer.

    WOW, I commend you for your righteous approach. Yes, that should be the ideal way a G-d fearing person should approach an undesirable situation. Me, as a outsider, bystander, cannot tell you that. But yes, an earnest apology, truly making up, would certainly do. It certainly can heal.

    One more word, if I may. I think you’re dealing here with a bochur. They’re also known to have mood swings. Big ones. So at any point in (seemingly random) time, he can, and we all pray should, make a sudden u-turn, full force, all engines burning, and head straight for a Bais Medrash, a refreshing dive into Torah, Torah life and Avodas HaShem. IT DOES HAPPEN!

    WOW, I haven’t been following your saga for some time. I wish I had the right words to say.

    The last paragraph, however, caught me. I cannot fathom the bitter pain you feel, the anguish at which you wrote those words. So let me try to talk my heart.

    Firstly. Every discomfort, pain, grief, however minute, is going toward a specific purpose. Nothing is going to waste, nothing is being overlooked in Shamayim, no tears go lost. NOT A ONE. Everything is being measured by HaShem’s direct attention. And though it may seem to you now that the bully is doing great… Remember “..they grind exceeding small”. Sometimes in life we’re not able to wittiness a “hot” nekamah.. sometimes HaShem, for His reasons, sees fit to dish it out cold. But THERE IS JUSTICE in this world.

    Secondly. I once heard from Rav Mattisyahu Solomon shlit”a, that one who causes another to stray, that person won’t be allowed into Gan Eden, whereas the one who was led astray, may actually earn it…

    May we hear from you Besoros Tovos. Bekarov!

    OUCH X 100!!

    Don’t know about you. I’ve never read any fancy parenting books, I’d NEVER, EVER, EVER leave a baby crying. Yidden are labeled Rachmanim, how it rubs against me. It should rub against any parent. And we’ve had the run, regulars, colicky. As I noted on a different thread, HaShem deals with a person as s/he does. When picking up a crying (undeserving) baby, say to HaShem, “look, my baby’s crying for no good reason, but I can’t stand to ignore it. You too, take note of our crying..”

    Oh, btw, my children, Baruch HaShem, grew up – they don’t cry any more. They’re saturated (spoiled) with feelings of care and love etc., Baruch HaShem.

    ?’ ????

    HaShem deals with a person, as s/he deals with his/her fellow man. Bein adam l’chaveiro, to really put yourself in another’s position and give a shoulder, that really helps. Shmiras Halashon (in the same vein) was also found to be a real segulah.
