    Klugeryid,… Please read my post on page 2.
    I’ll post one last time…. You’re pretending, right?? So let me explain it to you ‘Rochel Bitcha Haktanah.’.
    He doesn’t need to comment denigration outright.
    As per his MO, he sucker punched …. Regurgitating a topic which knows will offend, during the 9 days…. Right out of the blue… What’s the purpose?…Nobody here is stupid, klugeryid..

    I generally don’t comment here anymore, but on Motzei Tisha B’av on this topic, I just had to.
    , As with every Agadeteh, “Nashim Daaton Kalos” needs deeper discussion and learning .
    So when the males lost patience with Moshe’s return and made the Eigel Hazahav , and All women refused to hand over their jewelry, where was the daas of the men?
    And when most of klal Yisrael listened to the loshon hora of the great Torah scholars,the Meraglim handpicked by Moshe Rabbeinu, opening the Tisha Ba’av tragedies, where were the women? The women with their daaton kalos were the only ones who refused to listen …, Look it up.. Also, Tzelafchad’s daughters were an example of women loving EY, as opposed to the great Torah gedolim meraglim and their ilk.

    So On ben Pelles wants to join Korach’s rebellion…. Mrs. On, the lady with the daas kal, tells him – No way..
    Basically telling him, ” You’re a kal siding with Moshe, and you’ll be a kal siding with Korach. You’re nobody and you’ll stay a nobody.”
    She saves his life, this lady with a daas kal. How?….. She uncovered her hair, ordered On to stay inside the tent, and stood outside waiting for the Korach holy people including members of the Sanhedrin, who avoided looking at women, who were medakded in tzniyus, who were frum lifnei mishuras hadin….. to show up, knowing they won’t deal with her.And so it was… These frummies , who were medakdek in tzniyus, had no problem in causing a machlokes with killed hundreds if not thousands… Maybe some were even CR posters who may not be well, who preached frumkeit , knocking , mocking and denigrating other Yidden’s hashkofos, but had no issues in dredging up old OPs insinuating slights/insults , DAVKA in the 9 days , and hiding behind Chazals…
    Not to mention the males who encouraged avodah zara during malchei Yisroel, male kohanim who desecrated the Bet Hamikdash… not women….
    I don’t know what “kal” means, and from what I’ve read, nobody here does either.
    So you CR talmidei chachamim , go ahead and pick my post apart if you wish. I will not respond your drivel
    no matter how Chazals and seforim you present. Your motivation is not l’shem Shomayim… You know it … We all know it.,

    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…

    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.

    “…..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.

    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…
    Any vort, toire’leh , meysse’leh, against it is butel u’mvutal k’afrah de’arah .

    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
    USA.

    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.
