Re: Why do some Jewish communities prohibit women from driving? הגר"ש ואזנר שליט"א בשו"ת שבט הלוי חלק ד' סימן א' אות ב' שכתב בזה"ל, מן הנסיון למדתי שהוא דבר שראוי לאסרו איסור גמור, כי עצם הלימוד [של־נהיגה] גרם כבר וגורם לפריצות, והוא ההיפך הגמור מכל כבודה בת מלך פנימה, כמו שעצם הנהיגה הוא ממש להיפך כל כבודה וגו'. האשה חושפת עצמה בזה בשווקים ורחובות לעין כל רואה, נכשלת ומכשלת את האחרים. ואין דרכה של־אשה במרכב, עיין פסחים דף ג' ע"א. אעפ"י שהמציאות של־רכיבה על גבי בהמה אינו דומה לגמרי להא דידן, מכל־מקום בעצם אין דרכה בכך דומה בכמה דברים שקשה לפרש בכתב וכו'

Re: Why do some Jewish communities prohibit women from driving?
I have enough confidence in the chinuch I give my kids not to be adversely affected by such a class mate.

I also have confidence in my kids schools to give such solid chinuch, that if there was something inappropriate about parents הנהגות, it would eventually resolve through והשיב לב אבות על בנים.

Looks like your doing a good job!

My point throughout this thread is everyone has a line they don't want to cross. We are judging someone else's line.
Most here are fine with a woman not being able to smoke, as opposed to men but question the legitimacy of not letting them drive.
Most here are fine with a woman not being able were short sleeves or pants, as opposed to men but question the legitimacy of not letting a woman drive.
Most don't want there kids in a class with a non-shomer shabbos kid but question someone else lines.
Some understand a family exposed to TV internet Movies as a valid line but question others line.


My point being as long as you have a line how can you judge some else that want to draw a different line.

Re: Why do some Jewish communities prohibit women from driving?
I'm not sure that you haven't blurred some lines with your statements.

There's most definitely a difference between women wearing short sleeves and many of your other examples.

Going back to the original question of driving, I think the original reasoning has to do with כל כבודה בת מלך פנימה, not so much as a tznius issue, but more as a royalty issue.

After all, yidden are בני ובנות מלכים, and just like a prince isn't expected to drive, but rather be driven, it might be viewed as unbefitting. Now, different people have a different level of איידלקייט, and some might appreciate certain things, while others might not see anything unbefitting in it. The mistake IMHO is when one tries to enforce a "standard of איידלקייט" which I think is an oxymoron.

The Satmar Rabbi seems to mix כל כבודה בת מלך פנימה with tznius

Re: Do you Daven? A good thing that I got from reading this popcorn.
When I started davening today in the morning I thought to myself about struggles others have with davening.
I questioned myself am I davening the way I should? 

It made me daven with more kavonah and try to take it to a higher level.

Re: PSA: Group For Victims Of Alex Kay Scam He had a business in this field that supposedly went bankrupt/closed shop.

This story happened after he had closed already.

I think buying miles from A reselling it to B and then using it for yourself is "cheating people on purpose".

Re: PSA: Group For Victims Of Alex Kay Scam
He used to be very reliable. Back then

That how I got connected to this. My BIL called me up he has an offer from Alex for 1.6 on UR. He asked if he was reliable.
I had done a transaction with him 9 months before and was paid a large amount. I vouched form him without checking.

Only after he didn't pay I found on DDF that he claimed to have declared bankruptcy long before!

Re: YWN Toronto Airport Agent Takes Apart Jewish Travelerís Tefillin
Seriously guys? I didn't think the title needed any editing. It said "YWN" as the first words.

What did y'all expect, I thought that was the best disclaimer a thread could have.

Sorry guys I was trying to get my post count up. I hope that even though it was moved to JS I still get the post count form the original location.

As @jj1000 said I thought YWN was enough of a disclaimer. In hindsight, it should read  "YWN Claims Toronto Airport Agent Takes Apart Jewish Travelerís Tefillin"

Re: RIP/BDE Master Thread - COVID-19 related
Not that it mitigates the pain and tragedy at all, but I don't believe this was Corona related.
Is this confirmed Covid-19 related?

Dr fauci was asked how to fill out death certificates for untested deaths but seem to have a relationship to cover 19. His answer was to put it as coved-19 death.

He said we see other countries with low coved-19 reported deaths but a sudden rise in other causes of death. It's can't be true.

Same here ppl dropping to death all of the sudden has an underlying reason

Re: SBA PPP and EIDL Small Business Loans (some money is forgivable)
Kabbage.com just sent out the following:

DW got the same email.

I also just got an email from my bank (small bank located in MO) that they are now again accepting applications. Any point in applying there too? Multiple banks? Through AMEX?

Last round there seems there was loading problems with the SBA
So having an approved application by a bank may not mean it will be able to load it to the SBA in time

Chase advised its clients to try other banks too

Re: Areivim USA - Coronavirus

This (I have been to a few Areivim meeting with these Rabbonim)

Harav Elya Brudny, Rosh Yeshivas Mir Flatbush;
Harav Yitzchok Isaac Eichenstein, Galanter Rav;
Harav Doniel Geldzahler, Rosh Yeshivas Ohr Yisrael;

Re: Areivim USA - Coronavirus
What percentage of Arevimís recipients donít have/need crowdfunding campaigns? My guess is the $100k/orphan is a pittance and theyíre going to need a lot more. You canít market Arevim as mitigating the crowdfunding if the payouts arenít enough to mitigate it.

That's why life insurance with Areivim is the way to go. So at your high point where you have many children unmarried and a million dollar policy won't cover funds will be raised in a dignified manner

Re: Areivim USA - Coronavirus One thing I find also very interesting

Re: Unemployment Help
Tax Credits: Covered employers qualify for dollar-for-dollar reimbursement through tax credits for all qualifying wages paid under the FFCRA.
Qualifying wages are those paid to an employee who takes leave under the Act for a qualifying reason, up to the appropriate per diem and aggregate payment caps.
Applicable tax credits also extend to amounts paid or incurred to maintain health insurance coverage. For more information, please see the Department of the Treasuryís website.

Is this done on the quarterly 940?


On UI you'll get your Weekly Benefit Rate plus $600 for all claims 3/28-7/31.

Can I choose to get paid from the employer or go on UI?

Small businesses with fewer than 50 employees may qualify for exemption from the requirement to provide leave due to school closings or child care unavailability if the leave requirements would jeopardize the viability of the business as a going concern.
Is this a self-assessment?

Question is is there Avia in doing mitzvos

We all believe there is Avia by not treating a nonjew on Shabbat
We all believe there is no Avia for doing mitzvos in public

against the law
or not against the law but maybe perceived by a nonjew as endangering the public if we have avia

Re: Re: So How Was Your Shul This Week?
Let Ohio know they should revise their data to zero.



I think the only metric that indicates if it's going up or down is hospitalizations

Deaths are most likely from people that got sick long ago

Testing positive still does not mean it's a new case. Lots of people never tested until recently.

Re: So How Was Your Shul This Week? I love this thread (and others similar) They show how we are so close but so far apart.

P.S. just another example how we can be so close but so far
A litvish bucher and father sat down next to me in Shul learning.
The young boy points out to his father that he found a kidushin gamara next to a chasidush guy.
He points out to his father how weird this was! Kedushin is a yeshivash mesechta, and chasidim don't learn that they learn weird mesechtus
