Re: Silent Killer
You are using a false absolute. Do you feel that self control is not a factor at all in the vast majority of addictions? If so how can a 12 step plan possibly help at all?
Is self control a component in the cure for schizophrenia? If yes then is schizophrenia just a lack of self control, or a Bonafide mental illness?

Re: Messianism among Lubavitch

I wouldn't go so far as to say they were directly led astray, .

As a non chabadsker, you should please properly study the Torah, the directives, and the actions of the leadership. - I doubt you have properly done this. - an unbiased person would objectively see the truth. - there are hundreds of strange and suspect sayings, actions that directly caused the confusion.etc etc. Etc.

I would guess that your familiarity of chabad world view is limited to what you heard from the opposition.

Re: Messianism among Lubavitch The whole concept of "nosi hador" is an invention. It makes no sense and is misleading. Wholly unesessary term.

Re: Messianism among Lubavitch
And the other viznitz don't believe their Rebbe is the manhig/nosi hador?
Noone but chabbad use term nosi hador.

Words matter. This term was coined to induce some kind of dynastic royalty attributed to the last couple of leaders.

No chassidim use this anywhere near in an extreme way as chabbad.

Re: Messianism among Lubavitch
How many Lubavichers do you know that won't ever say the Rebbe is mashiach in public but will tell you behind closed doors after a few shots? Thousands probably?

No reason the same can't apply elsewhere.

That's why I don't buy the Dan's whole "fringe luny aurgument".
The problem is deep and systemic. They just won't necessarily all say it all...

I assume you or some of your friends want to commit suicide if they would know they get into gan eiden. Whether you say it openly or not. Just know that... And understand what your statements say about yourself, that is what I have tried to show you in my past replies, that have gone unanswered.

Good night y'all. Hope there isn't too much to read up on tomorrow.
Just to give you a better night..

Actually, since tov lo lodom shelo nivra yoser mishenivra, it is actually very logical to want to die asap as long as gan Eden is guaranteed!

Re: Hurricane Irma
The Lubavitcher Rebbe never reasoned WHY the Holocaust happened. Further, these concepts are often foreign to judaism, Avraham tried to save sedom and amorah, evil cities, purely of the merit of 10 righteous.

The gemara (or Rambam?) says an ir hanidachas is spared if there is 1 house with a mezuzah in it.

Truly yes there have been times where entire communities were destroyed for the sins of a few but its foolish to assign reasons why things do or do not happen
Foreign??! Achzorius!

מצות עשה מן התורה לזעוק ולהריע בחצוצרות על כל צרה שתבא על הצבור. שנאמר על הצר הצורר אתכם והרעותם בחצוצרות. כלומר כל דבר שייצר לכם כגון בצורת ודבר וארבה וכיוצא בהן זעקו עליהן והריעו.

הלכה בעריכה

ודבר זה מדרכי התשובה הוא. שבזמן שתבוא צרה ויזעקו עליה ויריעו ידעו הכל שבגלל מעשיהם הרעים הורע להן ככתוב עונותיכם הטו וגו'. וזה הוא שיגרום להסיר הצרה מעליהם.

הלכה געריכה

אבל אם לא יזעקו ולא יריעו אלא יאמרו דבר זה ממנהג העולם אירע לנו וצרה זו נקרה נקרית. הרי זו דרך אכזריות וגורמת להם להדבק במעשיהם הרעים. ותוסיף הצרה צרות אחרות. הוא שכתוב בתורה והלכתם עמי בקרי והלכתי גם אני עמכם בחמת קרי. כלומר כשאביא עליכם צרה כדי שתשובו אם תאמרו שהיא קרי אוסיף לכם חמת אותו קרי.

Re: Law School
Not quite sure what the difference between a frum man and a frum woman is. Both are frum, both keep Shabbos/YT. Why is it "normal" if a frum guy works in big law but not normal/doable for a frum woman? It's almost like Jews are stuck in the 1800s while the rest of the world has moved on.
Oh, it's because frum women help their husbands fullfil the obligation to bear children.

After that female mothers are the needed to nurture the young children.

Is this news to you?

October 26, 2017, 07:29:35 AM
Re: Law School

So you're telling me that non-Jewish women either don't have kids, or they have kids but they don't nurture their children? Wow, that's really interesting.

Or, maybe, it's because many if not most "frumer" girls schools put these ideas in their students' heads that Jewish women should only get a degree in making chulent and kugel and if a girl would actually say that she wants to be a lawyer or a doctor when she grows up, she'd get looked at like she's from outer space. There's a reason why once you shift over to more modern schools, you have plenty of girls going to college / grad schools.

Correct. Non Jewish professional women almost never have kids before 30 (or 35+ if they are very career oriented). And even then they only have a couple max..

Jewish girls are educated to observe the Torah which commands a man to have at least two kids ASAP.
This has nothing to do with chulent. It's just reality. An apple is just an apple.

October 26, 2017, 09:25:29 AM
Re: Law School

-1 on the first statement. Plenty of non Jewish professional women who have kids before 30. I know people like this that I work with, that I went to school with, etc. You don't strike me as a guy who has any non-Jewish friends. So your statement is based on a sample size of what? 2 people? Maybe 3 if you're one of the more open minded people in Lakewood. 

As to the second statement - *facepalm*. You do realize that there are plenty of respectable Ravs who give heterim to not have kids right away, right? Reasons include financial, career, etc. Not everyone holds that you'll burn in hell if you don't try to set a record for the amount of kids you can possibly have between the age of 19 of 35.

A) correct that I have no non Jewish friends, but have worked with hundreds of non Jewish coworkers. Don't recall any that had kids before 30 but it's definitely possible. (- besides for one very very religious Muslim, who's husband from Islamabad insisted on it... Long story).

(I did have male co-workers though that had wives around 30 w kids... Those women didn't have much of a carreer.)

B) I did hear Rav shechters take on this recently on the headlines podcast... Don't  wanna get into this here... But it's not at all simple to snap your fingers and get blanket heter...

Re: Kosher, Kashrus and Hechsherim Master thread

As for the term Chareidy Hechsher, that is such a meaningless term. What defines such. In recent years we've seen new Hechsherim pop up like mushrooms. They slap on the word Badatz or Mehadrin and oilam goilam buys into it. Some might be more competent than others, and some might not have the resources, knowledge, or even skills to operate in today's food production environment (restaurants being a totally different story).

A bona fide left wing modern orthodox organization is very well defined though.

Re: Kosher, Kashrus and Hechsherim Master thread The funny thing is, that after all of these passionate comments, trying to "educate" me on how wonderful the OU is, I have learned absolutely nothing that I hadn't already heard for years.

Re: Do you Daven?
Please explain to me why it's an issue?

 If he told me he's done with this 'fake frumness' and wants us to move to a non-jewish community- I might even be ok with it.

If we define fake frumness as acting frum but not having any relationship with gd (ie not davening to him etc), then I hear what you are saying. Otherwise this needs work....

Better question, why does it bother YOU that he doesn't daven? Just cultural, or you are disturbed by the lack of commitment? Do you daven?

January 10, 2018, 06:11:05 PM
Re: Do you Daven? The big issue for me with all this is that the the primary source of yiras shomayim is only absorbed by children directly from their parents. It is not something that is taught academically for the most part.

So if the parents are very lacking, the kids are totally lost. They will probably end up orthoprax at best. Notwithstanding the millions invested in yeshiva tuition.
