Re: Thrown out of Yeshiva for? I think that if the yeshiva believes it was unproper for the bochurim to go, and the bochurim believe that they must go, everyone should be happy with the way things turned out. Bochurim (and certainly high school age) should not be in a yeshiva with such a different philosophy than their own.

Re: Thrown out of Yeshiva for?
C' never disagreed with your yeshiva?

About something so fundamental? No. And if I did, I would do what I think is right, and accept whatever the consequences were.

Never banded together to do something? Thought if everyone is doing it...

If there were bochurim who went because everyone was going, not because they thought it was important (and my guess is that there probably were some), should pay a heavy price.

Re: 2019 Israeli election
Chabad voting for mizrachists time and again with excuses, just obscures that their sympathies lie there and that's it.

You have Satmar lunatics, Charedi mainstream, Chabad chardalim, and mizrachists.

Back to work.....

B"H, now that we have a dose of sinas chinam this thread is a real Israeli election thread.

Re: Lakewood Forest Fire
Here is the Kol Koreh. I know that at least one of the yeshivos that were signatory felt that it was wrong to prevent the event from taking place but ended up signing nonetheless.

I just noticed the pasuk they used in the date, and I'm having a hard time not coming to the conclusion that this is an elaborate troll...

Is it me, or is there always a huge spike in simchos when you book travel? I have three weddings, a bris, and a vort I'm gonna miss.

Kein ayin ho'ro. Your family should send you on vacation more often.

Re: Vaccine Discussion Master Thread
Why are they reaching out to folks on the above locals rather than Passaic, five towns, etc.? Perhaps because the latter have the education and access to information that makes them less likely to swallow the hogwash being peddled by the organizers?

The idea that non-vaccination is exclusively (or even primarily) amongst the uneducated is just plain wrong.

Re: Thoughts on abortion, religion, and morality

But it's okay to abort a fetus that was the result of incest?

What does singling out incest, in a separate category from rape, add to this conversation? I'm assuming you are referring to a specific category of rape, namely rape, statutory or otherwise, by a relative. So why mention that category explicitly?

To the heart of the question, no-one is rejecting the idea that a woman carrying her rapist's baby brings unimaginable pain to the woman. Pro-life people just as much sympathy for the woman who is going through that. We just believe that two wrongs don't make a right and that abortion is wrong.

Re: Throwaway email providers
But that will still send you mail going forward, the point is not to get spammed with all the unnecessary stuff

You can set up a filter that any mail going to that email goes straight to spam (or even deletes).

Re: Thoughts on abortion, religion, and morality

Just like you,  I believe that there are two wrongs here - the first is the rape itself, and the second forcing the woman to bear the fruit of this evil attack. It's bad enough that this woman needs to bear the scars of the attack itself - why do we doubly punish her by forcing the illegal fruits of the attack on her?

I would hope than many rabbonim, if presented this situation, would find an opportunity to provide such a victim with a heter to have an abortion.

It is not us forcing this baby on her, its the rapist (and G-d). I don't think you "fix" a horrible situation by doing another horrible thing to an innocent baby.
