I recently heard a shiur from Rav Avigdor Miller Zt"l and he said that taking a non Jewish tune and using it for a Jewish words is like taking a goy and being m'gaayer him

What about taking Jewish words and using them for a goyishe song?

Is that like shmad'ing them?

How about this. You might even ask a DDFer to visit their HQ and check them out.

The owner is a frum yid, so chances are the "Dan" in "DDF" knows him

Wow. I've never heard of this. Is this seriously legit? Where did you see this?For how long have you been using it? Any issues?

I've been using them for 2-3 years with no issues.

Its free, but they have 2 "add-ons" that cost $12.50 a month.
1 - Have them file and pay the taxes
2 - Have them set up direct deposit for your payroll.

I use 1 and not 2.

Never heard of מנחם מענדל ב"ר מנחם מאיר? (father was known as Meir, but full name was Menachem Meir).

Nope.

Could just be a hergesh

Right.

I don't get exactly what you're saying. I was trying to say that there shouldn't be a space (or hyphen) between the names.

My point is that it is one name, made of two parts.

People only have one name in a name. If your name is Chaim Berel then it's "Chaim-Berel" not two separate names Chaim and Berel. I don't have any proof besides for that we say וקרא שמו and not שמותיו.
You can have multiple names like Moshe or yisro (even that, could be it's a nickname but that's not mistaber) but not two names in one.

Minor correction, but otherwise I agree. I've seen this written about naming after someone, but in practice I don't know anyone who would give a name of a living parent/grandparent even though they add another name with it.

They clearly write in the email that the last year it became a Ponzi scheme. The money they swiped went to no business operations.

..hey, why was the email deleted?

Maybe their lawyer got involved and suggested that confessing publicly was not a good idea?

Ok I deny beating my wife.

See it's that simple. Thing is that some here think it is kefira to deny what I posted. They can't deny believing in shituf virtually exactly as defined in the Wikipedia I quoted.

 Sad.

@ExGingi wrote explicitly that no one (except you) believes that chassidim believe what you claim we believe.

Your gleeful ignorance of the basics of chassidus does not make me into a kofer, but it does say a lot about you, which is why I'm going to follow my own advice and
give these comments the same weight you would give to the high school kid who thinks he "destroyed" religion by coming up with the question of theodicy.

He says it was "already established". He and no one else has denied that this is the belief. Read the thread.

And again you refuse to tell us when you will stop  beating your wife. Why?

Me? I understand that this is *your* belief. And the fact that you all are evasively noncommittal on it either way is corroborating my well founded suspicion.
What is " evasively non-committal" about this?

I don't think anyone other than yourself reads into this as such.

We've already established that YOU are the only one who understands it like that.

Also, when will you stop beating your wife?


To me it is all total hogwash - I wouldnt dream of "trying to understand". It is yehareg Val yaavor.

Yet, you seem to have  no problem quoting Christian theology...

Vote now and help save my shalom bayis!

You have to tell us which option to choose to save your Sholom bayis. Otherwise we might make it worse...

You are a few hundred years too late. The Gra already cast the chassidim as kofrim due to the false testimony given to him, and its likely that the chassidim would have likewise considered the Gras understanding of צמצום כפשוטו......

FTFY

And the mainstream frum world today (starting from the Nefesh Ha'Chaim) don't hold of the shita of the GR"A and hold (at least closer) to the shita of chassidus
