Rav Aharon Kotler said that people (in his days) should speak Yiddish for three reason. (Some wouldn't apply today)

1- To be a Havdalah from the Amim

2- So that Jews around the world can communicate with each other even if their native languages vary. (not applicable today)

3- It has become a holy language because Torah was learned in Yiddish for hundreds of years.
So why not Hebrew? All those reasons should apply.
1- We need a havdalah from the zionists too. :)
2- Maybe.
3- Nobody has been using hebrew up until very recently, plus, a language made for unholy reasons will never be holy.

Anyone verify whether parking in non-Agudah sections of the mall is free?
I heard agudah backed out of the mall parking contract

The language is from the troah. Whether you want to use modern Hebrew or not, the core is still from the Torah. According to the Rambam it's a Mitzvah to speak lashon hakodesh.

The language is most definitely not from the torah, it uses words of the torah and many times contorts their meaning.
In addition, the language was intended with the express purpose of promoting an anti-torah philosophy. That in itself makes it unholy.
The Rambam would be referring to an actual holy tongue, not that trash.
R' Ahron Kotler himself ruled it was assur for the Bais Yaakov to teach in that language.

Mincha at the siyum: Never been by any davening with this many women, and it be this quiet.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

That's unnecessary. Plenty of men regularly talk in shul.

It's a joke, not jawbreaker. Don't take it so hard.

My son just reminded me how I the way out from the last siyum we heard two of the staff commenting to each other how they never got so many thank yous before.
