    so, the first one not only does a beracha levatala and sniling, as adimsts doing one every time she travels.
    the second basically says she can’t focus
    and the inmate? he has a tatoo in hebrew? this is just stupid, some people think that tattoing god name or some other hebrew word is like a segula

    See, the thing is — there are a lot of different versions of Yiddishkeit out there. Some of them are halachically legit, and some of them are, well, not so shayich.

    You know how there are all those documentaries and exposes about how “the Orthodox” live and what we REALLY think? Well, this is our chance to see what secular Jews and other Jews think about their Judaism….

    Damn straight Matthue but your an Apikores then

    It’s so easy to forget that there are Jews who not only disagree with us on details (And we love disagreeing over details) but have much bigger philosophical differences, and we can’t just assume that our set of assumptions is so much better that it renders their actions and intent invalid.

    Avraham, what makes the think the man with the tattoo was an inmate? The video showed him sitting in his living room with a drum set for Rockband and a large TV. The man’s black (perhaps mixed), so he’s automatically a criminal?

    It’s refreshing to see there are not yet frum yidden that have enough of a concept of G-d to make tefilah a real part of their lives.

    The video raised some important questions. Like why ask for something from He that knows all. A simple answer is that He wants us to ask.

    Avraham, getting gods named tattooed in Hebrew might be stupid, but labeling this guy an “inmate” takes the cake. Where did you come up with such nonsense? And if it was a joke, seriously, not even close to funny, and I love racist jokes.

    FS/H – You and orthodox would call someone like Matt an Apikores. But the nonorthodox would call you a douchebag and would completely ignore this notion of a heretic. Who is to say who is right…age old argument.

    Seth W: read the blog a little longer and you will know I was joking – Matthue is a good friend of mine.

    Was it just me or did everyone else think that the coolest part of the video was them showing 770?

    The dude’s beard is uneven, anyone notice that?

  • Hornball June 18, 2009, 12:41 PM

    Yoni is one weird cat.

    wonderful.

  • matthue June 19, 2009, 1:30 PM

    thanks for the good words, everyone! and thanks for the backup, seth. i do appreciate anyone who has my back against this Heshy cat.

    hornball: i always thought that uneven beards meant that you’re FFB…otherwise you get that post-shavey evenness.

    F.S – I feel like you posted this video just to get a yeshiva world/vos iz neias reaction in the comments

    Henry’s logic is more circular than a baseball.
