Re: EY…… transcends description of a location.
You mean locations like 13th, Central ,J ,Lee ,Collins Avenues, RT. 59 , The Loop, Eastern Parkway ,Lakewoods with their bagel holes and pizza joints?? These are the main highways in Gan Eden where the olam dance with the Shechina with a dveikus and simcha.
Don’t gave the stat page in front of me, but it could easily be checked. Most counties in NYS went for Trump. Hillary’s counties had huge population and Dem registration, giving her the state. ……Thank G-D for Electoral College and live legal voters countrywide who outvoted dead ones and double dippers for Hill.

Joseph @yesitsme, I know about your SHOISEKS and wasn’t interested in them at this time, TODAH RABAH .
Shotek, meaning The Silent. If memory serves, he didn’t speak for 20 years till his passing, but greeted people with a smile and nod without saying a word.May 24, 2019 12:13 pm at 12:13 pm in reply to: I noticed that Rebbitzen Golden P is blocked. Is that a good, bad or ugly thing? #1732669
At least half his stuff was tongue in cheek , his halachic “lifnei ivers” were no different then threads where people are bashing other peoples’ halachic presentations with THEIR rabbonim vs. the other side with THEIRS….. in a CR mind you, not in beit midrash. Plenty of bashing and lashon hara especially on some long threads, so let’s not take a holier than thou attitude, myself included.
His main issue, I think, was sometimes being nasty for no apparent reason when debating halacha which should be a logical debate instead of a fight…
Everybody has meshugaasin , I, you , and even the Mods🤣🤣
C’mon Rebbetzin, you know very well that R’ Tarfon was told by the tanaim that he was mischayav benafsho for following the Bais Shammai ( Brachos, Mishne3).

“……I’m beginning to suspect the “Rebitzen” is suffering from gender identity issues and in reality, is little Joey, posting from the basement nextdoor under a pseudonym …..”
Nope, it ain’t him. Totally different forensics in some areas. Besides, Rebbetzin’s style is hard to imitate.
Don’t worry though, Joe tries on a batch of masks, but the tell-tale fingerprints are there even if he tries to alter style. It’s his game.. hahahaha….
Re: The Ra’ah bird.
It has 3 names , all mentioned in the Torah, so that no one can mistake it, since it was called by these names at different times. Rabbeinu Bachaye explains Rav Abahu’s statement in depth. It has extraordinary vision and when it looks into EY from across the border , it sees only a dead carcass… His eyes scan the good, the beauty, the positive, but ignores all that and only sees the bad . hence it’s tamei and Hashem gave it unclean features, because such a creature MUST be tamei. Ramban adds that the siman of unclean birds is DRISAH- predatory attacking and fressing, tearing apart , which forever makes it unclean.
Luckily, most bird species are tahor ( Ofos hathorim merubim al hatmeim ) . Hameivin yovin.May 16, 2019 9:51 pm at 9:51 pm in reply to: How did Chabad change from being Anti Zionist to Pro #1728290

Re: Reshoyim or tinok shenishba…
Great question. Also…. Is somebody who is a mored against rabbonim and admorim who forbid Internet and certainly blogging , and especially 24/7 a rasha or a Satan addicted tinok shenishba?
“…..Too bad you denigrate Torah by saying compared to zemiros, Torah is c”v ….”
Rebbetzin, Rebbetzin, Rebbetzin..
You KNOW I didn’t mean that. Re-read my post again. If you don’t appreciate music as also a way to express avodas Hashem, that’s your call. The zmiros weren’t composed by CR folk like you and me, so you go ahead and knock it on your own.
“….. zemeros are not a participating activity for me, while divrei Torah remain an open season, to indulge, participate and wallow in delight…..”
Fine, your call. I delight, indulge and wallow in song, love every bit of it and feel as connected to Torah as you. As you yourself wrote; Time to sing , time to learn… and may I add… Time to discuss it in the CR when both of us should be learning…. or singing,..
“……There was this yid that was brought up with beautiful zemiros every shabbos, when he grew older, he completely left yiddishkeit, but still each and every shabbos he would drive to the chassidic shteibel to listen to his beloved zemiros. If only he would have had Torah to keep him pure….”
So there were ( and are still ) Yidden who listened to deep pilpulim in Poland and Lithuania and became mechallelei Shabbos , joined the Haskalah , but always loved to learn gemarah on Shabbos while smoking cigarettes w/o a kippah. Too many today are not even opening the gemarrah at all anymore and going off, so your story doesn’t prove a thing.
Anyway, I’m not going to do a back -and-forth with you , but let you continue to entertain us if you wish.
You’re the life of the party, in case you didn’t already know. Have a wonderful day, and a better tomorrow.
Oh…. How many tunes does anybody know for Menucha V’Simcha?? I know 5… Tra-la-la-la-
Chazak Ubaruch for meriting the Aliyah makes sense.
The Ashkenazic Shkoyach which connotes “thank you ” is presumably for the Mi Shebeirach when the Oleh mentions and blesses another congregant’s name. The original Yasher Kochacho which morphed into Shkoyach is similar to your Chazak . Maybe that’s how it happened.
“……..also a story about a talmid chochom that sang many zemiros at the table but his children never got a geshmak for Torah, instead, they dropped out of yeshiva and became singers at concerts. He said this was because he never showed the children the beauty of divrei Torah…..”
Rebbetzin– Please- You know that you don’t believe a word of it… Fake news, a 3#$ bill, a fairy tale, a Moby Dick.
Zmiros are inherently part of the Shabbos seuda, composed by great and holy people, and based on Torah psukim, Chazal, midrashim etc… Zmiros ARE Torah.. ! I have one that comes with commentaries and meforshim that can easily be discussed at the table as divrei Torah in case the baal habais has a tin ear, doesn’t like music or has a voice like a hyena…. Say a short vort on the parsha.. Who’s stopping you ? Zmiros are holy, beautiful. We see that Tehillim is full of song, shira, zimra, Lamnatzeach, Lamnatzeach… conducter, music, singing. Leviim in BH, singing playing musical instruments , beautiful, soulful. Music is avodat Hashem … Torah.. It’s Simcha, and nothing is loftier than Simcha… especially on Shabbos…. especially at the Shabbos seuda, especially with family and/or friends…

… correction.. I meant ” hasheim”
Travel agents who see good business have tapped into this. They’ve advertised in all Yiddish publications, and now all over English speaking media which fueled the latest “in”.
Not knocking the pilgrimage per se, but people are desperate for yeshuos and this is now the hottest spot.
Also, I’m a member if two different unions. Their monthly magazines mailed to us unionites have over the last 18 months increased their shrill about diversity. Diversity, victimhood, diversity, diversity,disadvantaged, racial… Anybody who gets them can easily read between the lines and photos. Not rocket science… Whites are inherently racists. The honchos are mostly white but they ‘re in doglapping, dogwhistling, kowtowing, cowtowing mode that makes you nauseous.
They’re progressive left on every issue….. of course.
Condescending preachers of what’s moral..
….Universities, media….. Founding Fathers evil white men.. Racists… Tear down the statues, rip up the Constitution, Decl. of Independence racist.. White privilege, white cop shoots black man, and Hussein O & Holder pontificate before the facts are in..
Wisconsin Dems realigning districts to limit white vote power, just ask Scott Walker.
Are you kidding???
Where has everybody been? Joseph is correct . The media, media hosts, professors, journalists have attacked white men with increasing ferocity over the last few years. There are too many examples to mention, and if you’ve not paid attention, do the search on any engine and it’s all there. Of late, it’s been bounced around again because Bernie and Joe, frontrunners, are white.
It’s not some looney group- it’s mainstream. As the late, great Bob Grant predicted some 10 years ago; the white male is becoming the most discriminated against “minority” in the
Rabbeinu Bachaya on parshat Tetzaveh, describes the physical and spiritual aspects of the colored stones inserted in the choshen. It’s fascinating.
Not to take anything away from bread & wine , but making a bracha with kavanah on any food or drink infuses it with spirituality. Especially on Shabbat, as we can see how the zmiros mention all kinds of delicacies lichvod Shabbat. With proper intent we can elevate ourselves even with a smell of a rose to spiritual heights.
Redleg is right. Revision of history in many areas of the frum past, especially bios, is shamelessly rampant and repugnant to the memory of the deceased and families. Brachos and all are great but Mrs. Schneirer herself was the founder. End of story.
Terrible event? Good of Klal Yisrael?
Good for you that you’d be able to withstand more than 1 wife, not me. I mean, she’s great and everything, but…. you know. As for boys marrying younger, I’m coming around to believe it’s not a bad idea after all.
Male or female:
…but disagree with him on verification…
We Jews are despite our differences, aware of what’s going on in our communities.. I’m getting hung up on the word ” crisis.”
Can we say it’s a significant issue?
Agree with Joseph.
Why can’t I trust my eyes? I’ve written before what I observe in my neighborhood, and it’s most probably true in others as well. Who’s going to give data? We’re going to knock on singles’s doors and ask questions? Then we’ll question the data , interpret it and disagree over it.
I agree with Little I Know.. There are singles reading stuff and they’re live humans.. If we have nothing constructive to help, then it’s better we don’t keep talking about it.

Re: Seder in Nepal
Big deal. We’re booked on the floating islands, Lake Titicaca, Peru. Management promised all chometz tasting very kosher for P lemehadrin babkas, 4 Daf shifts a day, and a 300 man
chorale at both seder finales to sing L’shana Habah B’Yerushalim guaranteed to make young and old weep with longing and dveikus or our money back. They may surprise us with an encore- Al Naaros Bavel Sham Yashavnu… bocheenu..etc. to make grandmas swoon and grandpas shudder. If it’s as promised, maybe we’ll do it again next year…. and the year after.

Clarification: That he can visit him on yom tov, but not the whole day…
… but a comment to laskern & Rebbetz. I believe the discussion about visiting your rebbe is in Meseches Succos, and some meforshim explain it to mean bezman Beis Hamikdash- that on yom tov only if he lives nearby because has to be home to be mesameach his own family.
Can’t recall the daf this moment.

Before we jump all over him, let’s consider the highly educated who say ” eKcetra” for etc… et cetera, and “pundiNt” for pundit.
Speaking of the Satmar Rebbe and gematria puns, supposedly a gevir , way back in the 50s, told the rebbe that he’ll donate in honor of his name , Yoel which= $47.
The rebbe reminded him that in the alter heim he was called

….and smartphones galore recorded the event, so please…..
… Want to emphasize that I was not a chosid of some of his shitos which were kanoi, so I don’t have an axe to grind. But I support the bochorim 100%.
I’m not a Skulener ( I knew his father Z”TL, a tzaddik ) but there’s something wrong here.
First, let’s deal with the rules that the bochorim broke. Ok, so punish them , make them eat dry bagels with halvah for a week, let them stand in the corner for 10 days, and gamarnu.
But I’d like to hear from that rosh yeshiva as to what his real reason was… the real emes…. Quoting Shulchan Aruchs isn’t going to cut it. A levayeh is Torah, it’s one of the most important mitzvos – showing kavod to a human, a Yid, and especially a beloved rebbe.
I’m convinced that some, many, if not all of these bochorim’s parents knew what they were going to do.
They didn’t cut seder to play at an arcade. So, kibud av is also part of this picture.
A similar thing happened to me , where a rebbe of my offspring disallowed him to be with family for a simcha ( I don’t want to give pratim). So the rebbe disregarded kibbud and respect for siblings, parents, grandparents, and in our case, a great-grandparent, who was since nifter. Derech eretz kadma l’Torah..
I’m bothered by the control that is exercised by roshei yeshiva and rebbes here and in EY who refuse to allow a bochur to come home for an occasion or leave the yeshiva for a while for another pressing need.
Besides- what he did here is to to re-open the old anti- Chassidc feud, which is already making the rounds.
You’re right, I’m confused. Maybe a researcher on a grant could write a couple of volumes on what admorim said, how it was denied by “witnesses” , how it morphed from what was actually said , if said at all, to what the Tell Overs repeat.
It’s happening all the time with a He Said that is denied later, brought back to life by signed pakshevillin which in turn are
challenged to their veracity,and on and on. Your computer has already taken over the world.You described it accurately.
