The only words that didn't translate when I went from a litvishe school to a Chabad school was Bo Bayom, Bekiyos, and Gehenom.

How about Shtaygen?

Interestingly, I've heard more about gehenom from Lubavitchers on this forum than in all of the yeshiva I've been in put together.

But only how we don't talk about it.

Void needs to make a comeback, so long as it doesn't bring its surrounding culture with it.

There are days when I still hear HaRabi 4 part harmonies with shouts of, "Voidness!" in the background.

I definitely have covid. Originally had a cold and small cough, now I just lost my sense of smell and taste. No fever the entire time. I'll probably have a positive result from the test tomorrow.

Can we have a rendezvous somewhere in Abia so can boost my antibodies?
