    If he is mature enough to start dating then why not? If he isn’t then wait. The question is how to decide whether he is ready.

    I sure hope your story isn’t true. It’s really disgusting to humiliate a kid that way. Also i think school;s discipline should be limited to school time, anything that goes out of the school is overstepping the boundaries.

    One of my nephews in a chasiddishe school, where if they come in sneakers they have to take them off for davvening. I don;t think it is such a bad idea by itself, since it teaches them ideas of kovoid hateffila.

    It was a bit not fair to my nephew, because he misplaced his shoes, and he doesn;t have shabbos shoes, [the cause for another thread on YWN], and after a couple of days the rebbi took away his shoes for a recess too.

    A fellow in my school once put up a see through oak tag gainst a wall and scribbled over it. The principal came in and asked who wrote on the wall, so this guy was like it’s me, so the principal started shouting at him, and the principal says your going to pay to ahve it removed, so he said no problem, and he sauntered over to the wall and removed the oaktag.

    The principal already had the guys shoes, since he had come lat to school tha day, and he didn;t give them back to him, so he had go home in his socks.

    akuperma, if your reasoning was correct; then we would wear Shabbos shoes [and clothes] every time we daven. We don’t.

    Shabbos is obviously different, because of the halocho of ?????? ????? ????? ??? ??? ????? ?? ??? ??????? ?? ?? (??? ???)

    Are shoes included in this halocho?

    Shimon Peres definitely comes from lithuanina background – not Alexander chassidim.

    Yitzchok Rabin and Ya’ir lapid are both from chassidic dynasties, And Rivlin, although more distanly connected is an tenth generation descendant of the baal hatanya. He actually spoke at a labuvitch ceremony once on yat teves in binyanei ha’oomah.

    I think since many of our gedoilim were blessed with unusaul talents and/or tremendous determination and persistence it makes sense tha there fried out einiklach ended up much further in life.

    nfgo3 – i think the OP was making a point, that independent of what the kid did, forcing a kid to walk outside in socks is not a fair punishment.

    Akuperma, churchill clearly expressed goal was freedom. He continuously reminded the brittish that it was worth giving your life for this ideal.

    “And men will say “this was our finest hour””

    “Never has so much been owed by so many to so few”

    Please note it was during his tenure in the 1950’s thta England gave back much f it’s colonies. [it started with Atlee in 1947]

    Sheim mi’shmuel explains [not on this specific question] that the people Yaakov hinted to are those who had middos that reflected on yaakov’s own hcildren.

    Efraim is yehoishua, efraim learnt by yaakov, while yehoishua was the ultimate tlamud of moishe, compared to the moon which receives light.

    Shimshon was don, acheiving great things even when all looks hopeless, chushim, me’asef lekol hamachanois, etc…

    Dovid and Yehuda are malchus. {see ramban as to sho’ul)

    One can suggest that yaakov gabe the direct brocha to levi, that of ??? ?????? ????? which obviously includes moishe

    Come on guys.

    Churchill was responsible for saving much of the world. If not for him Englnad would have surrendered and who knows what would have happened.

    I still remember one of the chochuve morei hoira’ah in London saying a few words when the british marked fifty years since WWII.

    Whether he was an antisemite has long been debated – although everyone agrees that his foreign minister [anthony Eden] and his succesor [Clement Atlee] were. However even if he was wwe still owe him a huge debt of hakoras hatoiv.

    Mandela undoubtedly acheived something – but on a much smaller scale. People outside S/a have little to do with his acheivements. we do not deny what he did, and at least i personally respect him for it, but we also remember that he gave legitimicy to Arafat, and was one of the first world leaders to do so.

    The BBc bias lies not only in the way it reports, but WHAT it reports. They failed to report the soldier being killled in it’s own right, only mentioning it when israel retaliated.

    But even say the Iran deal, when they mentioned Netanyahu opposition they made it like his main problem is the new kesher between US and Iran and that the us is less responsible for israeli security. They didn’t even bother informing the public about the obvious concern that absolutely no supervision was introduced for any sites other than those the g6 have already found out about – and even those the us only knows about through info from iran’s internal opposition.

    That is a basic point missing in the deal, and when one thinkks about it one relises that Obama is probably nuts, but the BBC simply didn’t find it necasary to tell the public

    Democaracy may be fair – but it is not a always right.

    See Egypt, where democracy brought the muslim brotherhood to power.

    I think ut was R’ Don Segal shlit”a who said “democracy iz de groize getche fun America” – basically if it is pursued worshipped in it’s own right it is Avoida Zoro

    Rabbi of berlin and yihcusdik:

    If i understood R’ miller zatzal correctly he was saying that although the torah undoubtedly includes a mitzva of kibbush ha’aretz, nonetheless that mitzvah is limited to a time when we it is clearly rotzoin hashem, additionally the matoro must be not only kibbush but also malchus beis dovid and a beis hamidkosh.

    No one is chas vesholom suggesting a new religion, take a look for instance at the ramban in mitzva 4 she’shocho harov, etc… just to quote r’ moishe sherer, zion yes, zionism not.

    Hakoton:

    I feel much of r’ wasserman;s position has been taken out of context. He waas not chas vesholom suggesting that there is no mitzva of kibbush ha’aretz in the right times, rather he was saying that making it the main mitzva in the toira and denying the purpose of other mitzvois is avoida zoro.

    Calling a letter a troll – alhtough i’ve no idea why one might think so is just decide so – is simply denying that the letter writer mught have a valid point.

    Jewish feminist:

    Your moshol is very sweet, but at least in the leter writer’s opinion, the moshol is that of a man drowning, who, when someone offered him a rope to enable him to stay alive in the water accepted it, when asked why he didn’t appreciate he said, “you sent a rope because you wanted to fish, and hey, it was you who threw me in the water in the first place.”

    Yichusdik:

    I clearly heard R’ avidgor miller say that k’lal yisroel have ZERO nationalistic aspirations OTHER than those that are clearly rotoin hashem. I am happy to hear if other gedoilim held differently, but it has little bearing on whether those who are opposed to basic idea of a jewish owe hakoras hatoiv to soldiers.

    Vogue, no one debates that anyone is entitled to take money for necesities from tzedoko. The question here is taking money for things that some people obviously consider extras.

    Think again, if you had a pair of shoes that you could wear, and then a chasuna ccame up, and you wanted a pair of expensive insole shoes that also looked good, would you take money from tzedoko for that?

    What shoe store assistant hadn’t realised was the sheer extent of Korn../voldermort’s abilities. Every time she came to help, another thread of her’s was deleted or closed on YWN coffee room.

    when she saw her thread closing in front of her eyes, she asked me if i could reopen it on her behalf which i did.

    After seven floors the boys realised that they could climb no more. With bated breath GG pulled his wand out from under his cloak and shouted “Accio Shoe store assistant.”

    For the second time in one day shoe store assistant found herself flying over the atlantic, only this time she was holding tzeddoko vouchers instead of shoes.

    “I will help you if you promise me to no longer wear shabbos shoes.” she told the two poor boys.

    GG was only too happy to agree, as he had only one pair of shoes anyway, but CP wunced as he thought of the new patent leather shoes with a buckle that his mother had bpught for him only that week.

    Yet shoe stores incantanations were not working. “this seems to be ancient magic.” she said finnally. “Since Talmudical times. It must have been put here by Popa bar Abba himself.”

    I happened to be passing the top of the stairs when i overheard them. After hearing the problem, i explained that the solution was simple. If they would spell Kornhauser’s name with a K their spells mught work.

    It is totally unfair to read things into his letter. there is always room for improvement every where, but fact is that the yungerleit in eretz yisroel are creme de la creme.

    By the way GG, do you remember that for a couple of weeks every year they used the gymnasium for GCSE – public exams, and we used to sports on the stage in the school hall? They had proper carpet there and there was no climbing equipment, and we used deliberately turn up without our sneakers and enjoy ourselves in our socks.
