Chronicles Of Crises In Our Communities

Is this world crazy or am I?

Seen it all!

Dear Seen,

Yes, I’ve noticed and have had the same thoughts many a time. Not for naught does our religion teach and stress the laws of tznius. That said, even the secular world is aware that females who seem to have the need to let it all hang out are either desperately lacking in self-respect or self-worth or both — not to mention that in today’s world too much emphasis is placed on the physical and too many people allow themselves to be swayed by outward appearances.

Speaking about looks and lawsuits and the strange times we live in, it doesn’t get much weirder than the lawsuit that was recently filed by a man in China against his wife for deceiving him.

True story: A handsome man and his pretty woman had a baby girl who, as it happened, was exceptionally unattractive. The husband was miffed and suspected his wife of cheating on him with another man, until she admitted that it was she who was probably to blame for their unsightly offspring.

Turned out she had been an ugly duckling herself before spending $100,000 for intricate plastic surgery to transform herself into a beautiful swan. Of course when she met her husband-to-be, she kept that bit of information to herself.

Hubby subsequently file for divorce and sued. The judge sided with him, citing that she had married him under false pretenses. The victimized husband was awarded $120,000 in damages.

Getting back to your issue, on-the-job dress codes might be one way to curb naughty behavior to some degree, and schools would be wise to institute rules that would keep scantily dressed girls from contaminating their hallways.

Thanks for sharing.

This year, 40 couples were helped. The organization needs the support of the extended Jewish community so that it can continue in its important work.

In the introduction to the first volume, R. Katz discusses the Torah ideal, arguing that the Torah’s laws are intended to craft the perfect man and are not to be regarded as ends unto themselves.

A highlight of the evening was the video produced by the Kleinman Family Holocaust Education Center on the legendary Agudah askan Reb Elimelech (Mike) Tress, a true Jewish hero.

Until recently his films were largely forgotten, but with their release last year on DVD by Re:Voir Video in Paris they are once again available.

Though the CCAR supported the Jewish right to emigrate to Eretz Yisrael, it strenuously objected to defining Palestine as the Jewish homeland.

“Well, you are also part of this class! If someone drills a hole in the boat, the boat will ultimately sink, and even the innocent ones will perish as well. The whole class must be punished!”

Nouril concluded he had no choice: He had to become more observant.

I find his mother to be a difficult person and my nature is to stay away from people like that.

Here are some recipes to make your Chag La’Illanot a festive one.

Does standing under the chuppah signal the end of our dream of romance and beautiful sunsets?

We aren’t at a platform; we are underground, just sitting there.
