Chumra of the Month Club: Miami is Assur

Ok I told you that every month the charedim have to keep up their quota of wacky chumras, whether its for publicity or to just keep their die hard folowers in check and to make sure the Rabbis actually do something besides cover up sexual abuse scandals, and twirl their peyos. Well boys and Girls Miami has been deemed Assur.

    say as u want but i have heard from non right wing flame throwing rabbis that going to places where immodestly clad women will be is considered abizrayhu di’arayot and abizrayhu di’arayot are yahoarog vial ya’avor
    so u may say it is just a chumrah but do u know halach?
    or are u just trying to obfuscate the issue by bringing up child molestation.

    It happens to be that I do not go to Miami for this reason and that there is really nothing to do there. But if you say Miami is Assure whats next- walking down any street anywhere since there is pritzus everywhere. The issuring of everything is just plain dumb and leads to nothing but more immorality and more people going off the derech due to extreme measures taken to shield everyone from everything. It does not work and everyone knows it, so why keep assuring things for the sake of strictness- it makes no sense.

    This is the dumbest most asinine thing they have done yet. If you go to Manhattan in the summer there will be people dressed just as immodestly and I doubt they will ever ban people from going to The City.

    The same thing goes for Netanya and Tel Aviv in Israel. Will these people have the guts to make going to Tel Aviv or Netanya assur? No? Why not? Israel might as well be “Little Miami.”

    I’m truly embarrassed that these people call themselves Jews and I’m somehow classified in the same category. Thank G-d I’m Lubavitch and we don’t get all nutso every time some kabal of Rabbi’s makes a new idiotic psak.

    Let me just finish off with something my friend just wrote to me about this …

    “Losers … that just means shorter lines Motzei pesach for the pizza! Their loss is my Pizzalicious gain!!

  • February 15, 2007, 2:16 PM

    I think they should ban human reproduction since when a baby is a born thats one more Jew to do all these assur things. The less babies the less people doing assur things.

    While we are at it why not ban people from leaving their homes ever. We can be like the Matrix or something. Just have the Rabbis- who are our spokespeople- get all of our daily necessities for us because leaving the house is also a taiva.

  • February 15, 2007, 2:22 PM

    I think babies should be assured from coming out of the womb naked. I mean what kind of untznius behavior is this? If they can’t come out wearing normal (no denim!) clothing from the start, well, then it shouldn’t come out at all!!

  • February 15, 2007, 4:19 PM

    You rock Chaim!!!
    Maybe that will be my next post. I also think that going to the bathroom should be outlawed because of potential abuse IE: looking over/under the stall and only diapers will be allowed- ooh maybe someone has stock in Depends?

  • February 15, 2007, 4:53 PM

    “I think they should ban human reproduction since when a baby is a born thats one more Jew to do all these assur things. The less babies the less people doing assur things.”

    Yeah, and they are also born naked. If they can’t be trusted to wear clothes the first minute of their life, how can they be trusted to wear clothes the rest of their life?

  • February 15, 2007, 4:57 PM

    after i made my post, i realized that chaim had basically the same thought.

  • February 15, 2007, 5:57 PM

    Yo, I’ve made a contest, guess the next Ban, win a prize!!

    Right. You just believe that your Rebbe who is laying 6 feet under is alive, is Moshiach, and is God.

    What a hypocrite, you idiot moron. Why don’t you deal with your own stupid problems before bashing others???

    It doesn’t work for Jew bashers who are already off the derech. Such bans are only intended for erliche Yidden who are Yirei Shamayim who are seeking to get closer to God, not for Rabbinic haters like you lowlife bloggers.

  • February 17, 2007, 7:08 PM

    Did you know the chofetz chaim states that loshon horah about a whole community is the worst of its kind. I love how people lump all Lubbies into meshichist category. You just completely contradicted yourself by calling yourself Erliche.

    You also just lumped every single blogger into a low life category, wow thats erlich of you, F$%^ing racist.

    What exactly does off the derech mean to you? Does it mean that instead of telling people you go on the internet and look at blogs, you smuggled your computer into your house in an air conditioner box- because thats real Erlich- which I hear means honest.

    Or does on the derech mean that you look at one post- and judge everyone based on externals like clothing, and table cloth covers.

    It sounds like your the Jew hater buddy. Rather than alienate Jews who are off the derech like many of your kind unfortunately like to do, you should be striving to bring them closer. But you just proved to me and my 1000 hits daily that you are an ignorant shmuck.

    And you know what else- I think you hate Lubavitchers because their chicks are hot and dont have to wear those stinkin’ turbans, oh and did I mention they were hot.

  • February 17, 2007, 9:15 PM

    >Did you know the chofetz chaim states that loshon horah about a whole community is the worst of its kind.

    Tell that to chaim who said:

    “I?m truly embarrassed that these people call themselves Jews and I?m somehow classified in the same category.”

    >I love how people lump all Lubbies into meshichist category. You just completely contradicted yourself by calling yourself Erliche.

    I didn’t. I said that the bans are for the erliche. I never said I am one of those. Before you bash away, learn how to read.

    >You also just lumped every single blogger into a low life category, wow thats erlich of you, F$%^ing racist.

    Again, in your eagerness to bash, you didn’t read properly. I said:

    “not for Rabbinic haters like **you** lowlife bloggers.”

    >What exactly does off the derech mean to you? Does it mean that instead of telling people you go on the internet and look at blogs, you smuggled your computer into your house in an air conditioner box- because thats real Erlich- which I hear means honest.

    You have no idea who I am. I might be some MO guy disturbed at all the jew bashing.

    >Or does on the derech mean that you look at one post- and judge everyone based on externals like clothing, and table cloth covers.

    Or judging them for their high level arrogant shown when they make a mockery of everything their pea-brains doesn’t comprehend.

    >It sounds like your the Jew hater buddy. Rather than alienate Jews who are off the derech like many of your kind unfortunately like to do, you should be striving to bring them closer.

    That’s no excuse to make a mockery out of everything a Gadol decrees.

    >But you just proved to me and my 1000 hits daily that you are an ignorant shmuck.

    Look whose talking. The shmuck himself.

    >And you know what else- I think you hate Lubavitchers because their chicks are hot and dont have to wear those stinkin? turbans, oh and did I mention they were hot.

    I don’t hate lubavitch. I was pointing out the hypocrisy of bashing others when the basher has his own problems.

  • February 17, 2007, 9:31 PM

    Ok end of discussion you got me but I do feel priviliged that I got you to use swear words like shmuck which means you are just some guy who likes to bash and start a fight on blogs, but its good because it generates comments and email- which you can by all means do because then I will sell your name to some organization so you can do teshuva for all your sins.

    Did you hear the internet was ASSUR as well as Blogging? I guess you are not adhering to your laws.

    PLEASE ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ALL LUBAVITCHER CHICKS ARE HOT AND YOU WANT TO BANG THEM SHMUCK!!! of course only after a dip in mikvah to make them kosher

  • February 17, 2007, 9:36 PM

    First I would like to say I appreciate your web site and I have had many a good laugh. However I do take offense to your constant referal to Lubavitcher girls as “hot”. Though I understand comenting on our looks is meant as a joke, and a roundabout compliment. I am sorry, but i do take offense. It is demeaning. There is so much more than our looks that make lubab girls special. And anyways we’re not all “hot”. :]

  • February 17, 2007, 9:40 PM

    It happens to be I have written man a time that Lubavitch girls are also much more intellectual than other frummies as well as worldly, I do apologize for offending and will tone it down in the future.

    Oh and boy can they cook!!! and they are the only frum girls I know who have eclectic hobbies and interests. You people ROCK.

  • February 17, 2007, 10:16 PM

    >Ok end of discussion you got me but I do feel priviliged that I got you to use swear words like shmuck which means you are just some guy who likes to bash and start a fight on blogs,

    You have some serious reading comprehension problems. Take a look at who called who a shmuck first. If that’s too difficult for you, here, I’ll help you. YOU called me a shmuck first. I simply threw it back in your face.

    >but its good because it generates comments and email- which you can by all means do because then I will sell your name to some organization so you can do teshuva for all your sins.

    Blackmail, eh? No doubt, a significant part of your sterling character.

    >Did you hear the internet was ASSUR as well as Blogging? I guess you are not adhering to your laws.

    I’m the anti-basher, out to bash the bashers.

    >PLEASE ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ALL LUBAVITCHER CHICKS ARE HOT AND YOU WANT TO BANG THEM SHMUCK!!! of course only after a dip in mikvah to make them kosher

    Stop talking to yourself. It makes you look stupid.

  • February 17, 2007, 10:28 PM

    Never said I was smart, in fact I never graduated high school and am now unemployed and spend my time skiing and riding my mountain bike.

    So if someone called you an MF would you merely throw it back- its still counts as a swear word because you said it as well. But I thank you for all your comments you should check out some of the other postings- they are quite good really. and the life-of-rubin blog also has a good posting as well as contest on who can guess the next crazy chumra to come out of Saudi Arabia ahem I mean Charediville wil be- you can win a bag of super snacks you know.

  • February 17, 2007, 10:35 PM

    >Never said I was smart, in fact I never graduated high school and am now unemployed and spend my time skiing and riding my mountain bike.

    Even better. Unemployed skier/biker do-nothings blasting Gedolim for issuing bans. The Chutzpa is beyond pale.

    >So if someone called you an MF would you merely throw it back- its still counts as a swear word because you said it as well.

    Keep on trying to nail me. You’re so far doing a terrible job at it. Maybe you’ll soon have some better luck.

    Only a bored dummy (as per your own admission) like you would sell his soul for a bag ‘o snacks.

  • February 17, 2007, 11:43 PM

    Anti, why don’t you leave the public library where you sign on from and go back to Kollel. I don’t think your Rebbeim would be happy knowing your on a blog, let alone online to begin with. Your just a bored loser with too much time on his hands.

    Your embarrassing yourself and even worse, your wrong on so many levels I don’t want to waste my time on you to count them all.

    If you actually believed in all of these retarded bans you wouldn’t be here desperately defending them. Get. A. Life. Now let that nice non Jewish lady waiting to use the public computer get her chance to use the library internet.

  • February 18, 2007, 12:14 AM

    >Anti, why don?t you leave the public library where you sign on from and go back to Kollel.

    And pray tell Mr. Chaim, which library is open late saturday night?

    >I don?t think your Rebbeim would be happy knowing your on a blog, let alone online to begin with.

    Like you have the faintest idea of who I am.

    >Your just a bored loser with too much time on his hands.

    Not a bad description of yourself.

    >Your embarrassing yourself and even worse, your wrong on so many levels I don?t want to waste my time on you to count them all.

    What an amazing response. Pat yourself on the back, genious.

    >If you actually believed in all of these retarded bans you wouldn?t be here desperately defending them.

    I aint defending them. I’m bashing those who bash them. Just mind your own business. Especially the unemployed high school drop outs.

    >Get. A. Life.

    Same to you.

    “Especially the unemployed high school drop outs.”

    Great, that’s coming from some Kollel loser reject who can’t even spell the word genius right. Priceless. What a loser. I guess in life there will always be those who advance the cause and those whose only job on earth is to go around knocking people down because their own lives suck. Anti, if you’ve got “home” problems you should really consult a specialist, not be trolling around on blogs.

    PS – It’s caleld SpellCheck. or is that banned now in your kollel also?

  • February 18, 2007, 8:12 AM

    Oh and I can also post my post twice for dramatic effect. Or is pressing buttons to hard a task for you?

    Talking about spelling. LOL!!!!

    And the double posting was a browser error.

    >Great, that?s coming from some Kollel loser reject who can?t even spell the word genius right. Priceless. What a loser.

    I’m not in Kollel for over 10 years already. And I make enough money that I can afford to take my time to bash the bashers.

    >I guess in life there will always be those who advance the cause and those whose only job on earth is to go around knocking people down because their own lives suck.

    A perfect description of this blog-owner. Well done!!

    >Anti, if you?ve got ?home? problems you should really consult a specialist, not be trolling around on blogs.

    My problems are with bigoted Baal Gaavaniks who think they know best, and the minute they come under fire, they resort to counter-attacking with every ad-hominen under the sun.

  • February 18, 2007, 5:09 PM

    Your are a child, go home to mommy, it’s time for your supper. I don’t think you are ready to play with the big boys anyway. Stop defending child molesters, women abusers, and fat ugly obese future heart attack victims who do nothing positive for the Jewish community but sit in their huge houses paid with stolen money from the government and their expensive cars who feed off kavod from bottom dwellers like you and tell good people just trying to live their lives the best the can that G-d hates them and oh ya, here is another thing g-d doesn’t want you to do.

  • February 21, 2007, 2:35 AM

    Now, if we’re done bickering…
    The author of the unmentionable Bizayon is here to inform y’all that he did a write-up on the issue, including a condensed transparaphrasing of the ban’s text.

  • Yerach November 20, 2007, 10:57 PM

    Anti just who are the “gedolim”?
    What constitutes a so called “godol”?
    Because Aguda,Shas,HaModia or Yated Neeman says so?
    This whole shtus with kosher cellphones,really I’ll have mine with onions & ketchup & this crap that I can’t I sit next to wife on a city bus?
    Neither RavMoshe Feinstein,ZT”L,Rav J.B. Soloveichik,ZT”L nor the Lubavitcher Rebbe,ZT”L said we need these things.
    Those were the true gedolim.
    Todays ayatolaesque so called “gedolim” can’t measure up.
    If I am not mikabel an individual or individuals as gedolim they are not so for me.
    Until the Sanhedrin is reactivated this whole concept of gedolim is total bulls**t!!!
    I will do as I have done most of my life (I am almost 50) consult with my local orthodox rabbbi & my mashpia.

  • JoJo November 20, 2007, 11:31 PM

    Forget the pritzus; I’ve always wondered how chassidim could stand to be in Miami wearing all that. I sweat buckets just in t-shirts if it’s not the middle of winter.

    Anyways, sounds like they only outlawed Collins and 41st, not NMB, Aventura or Hollywood.

  • Hesh November 21, 2007, 3:32 PM
