If not for my wife, I wouldn’t have known of Hurricane Sandy

As some of you may have noticed I haven’t been online much lately, no real reason for that, except for one day realizing that I hadn’t blogged, facebooked or wasted time on youtube or wikipedia for a couple of weeks and not missing it all. If not for that wife of mine on her droid telling me about the super storm some of you folks are experiencing right now I wouldn’t have had any idea it was happening.If you’re unhooked from the web and spending your time cooking and mountain biking, there’s not really anyway I could have known that New York is having some killer white water kayaking conditions right now.

To tell the truth, it’s quite easy for me to just not use the internet at all. Checking your email after 2 weeks is kind of a drag and I do have to pay most of my bills on the tenth of the month, but suddenly it all seems like a waste to me. You can thank Mr. Rosenbach for a very long winded inspirational email and my wife for nudging me back into this blogging thing. I can’t say it will be like before, now that I couldn’t care less about comments or getting that extra couple hundred people a day, but who knows.

If you have any good Jewish Hurricane Sandy pictures that are fake or real please email them to me at frumsatire@gmail.com

    First you marry a lubav…then you stop using internet….What’s gonna be next?

    Things begin, things end, and people change – nothing in this world is forever. I understand; I really do. But I have followed the blog for a long time, and sincerely hope you decide to keep it going. It is so much more than just satire. It is – we are – a community – a very diverse religious community. I can’t speak for others, but I am more observant because of Frum Satire.

    In any case, thank you Heshy for all the joy you have brought into my life over the years.

    RIP frum satire. It was nice knowing ya.

    It was inevitable that this blog would end after you got married.

      Given that it was his wife who had the Android phone, I wouldn’t be so sure.

    Heshy was just blogging to get chicks 🙂

    Dear Brothers and Sisters of Lakewood

    With much of Lakewood NJ still without power for days, I humbly feel that Hashem is trying to send us a message that: “we” are putting out the light the power of the beauty of Lakewood, the largest town in the US of Torah learning. The light of the Kedusha the light of thousands of Torah learners right here in our town of Lakewood is being distinguished by us with our actions

    We have more Yeshivas and Mesiftas than in any other town or city in America BY”H so we have more responsibility to keep Hashem happier with our way of life, get closer to Hashem as to be an example to the world how a Ben Torah is to behave

    It’s time for all of us to make a Cheshbon Hanefesh and see what could be corrected to bring back the light of the Shechinah to Lakewood the town of Torah and Chessed the town that was build by the big Rosh Yeshiva z”l

    If we don’t take the message from this storm seriously who knows what other difficult messages Hashem might have to send us in order to wake up and do Teshuva?

    Take a moment and think…are we truly living a spiritual life at least similar to our great grandparents, the way they lived when they arrived in America some 60 years ago? or are we indulged in our clothing, i.e. shoes, jewelry, belt, coat, & mink coats, handbags, boots, sun glasses, non-stop shopping, hunting for bargains, living in restaurants, redoing our kitchens every so often, always planning our next vacations, now Leshem Mitzvah we are busy planning our winter vacation, and of course don’t forget Motzai Shabbos hot Pizza & fries, eating it in the pizza shops with mixed company, we have turned into a major “planning board” not leaving enough time to see and plan our lives as “how to serve Hashem better

    Lets be honest it’s almost impossible to walk the streets and keep our eyes clean, and yes, I am referring to neighborhoods of Bnai Torah and Chassidim, not in Harlem, Miami Beach or Las Vegas etc.

    The “Franken-Storm” effect has been felt by many of us, we are all suffering because of it, one way or another, but….. The million dollar question is: are we waking up to Hashems cry?

    Now it’s our duty to be strong and say to Hashem:
    OK we are ready to change our lives, our materialistic lifestyle that we have lived up to now, will change!!! Well start getting ourselves ready for the coming of Moshiach by living a true Torah life. BTW when Moshiach arrives there will be nothing left of all our Gashmius, so get a head start…and get rid of it now. Lets be more careful with all of the Halochos and 613 Mitzovos of our special sweet Torah.

    Thank you for giving up your time and reading this note of Chizuk. Please copy and paste in Shuls, schools etc. so others can get Chizuk too.

    s.p. It would be nice if everyone takes the Frankenstorm warning from Hashem very seriously to prevent future catastrophes.

      What Bullshit.

      Maybe God brought Hurricane Sandy BECAUSE of Lakewood. Families going bankrupt supporting laytzanim who never show up to Seder or ruining the beauty of Judaism with stupid chumra’s that have no basis on Halacha or maybe because of the way the “charedi” community relegates our women to second class citizenship or is it the Hashgacha cartels that squeeze our Kosher eateries in ways that could teach the Gambino family a few things.

        maybe god brought the hurricane because the jets refuse to start Tim Tebow, God’s son

        what have you been smokin?

  • Mr. Dov Tov November 4, 2012, 5:49 PM

    I applaud Heshy for withdrawing from this web site and from the internet in general.

    The best posts on this web site are the ones from people other than Heshy.

    The less Heshy appears on this web site, the better it will become.

    • huh November 4, 2012, 6:24 PM

      The more dead it will become. Are you aware that the reason this blog got a lot of traffic was because of Heshy’s posts? If Heshy quits like he indicated, traffic will be down to less than half of what it was.

    • huh November 4, 2012, 6:26 PM

      in fact, the blog is in its dying throes right now. A proper blog cannot be maintained without fairly frequent posts. In October and November, there have been eight posts, and only five of those had actual content.

  • hebrewnational November 8, 2012, 5:47 AM

    Heshy- i’ll admit to missing your posts; I’ve checked periodically, and was dismayed at the lack of activity. I think you do a good service to the community of “oft-disenchanted-but-still-committed” frum folks. Not to put pressure on you, but keep it up if you can. I’m not sure you realize the positive implact you have on the jewish world.

  • hebrewnational November 8, 2012, 5:50 AM

    Dude- if not for y0u, I have to routinely check that creepy dude Shmarya’s “failedmessiah” site.
