The Luni Muni


Teens-011813-muni-meter

The New York Muni-Meter system is a disaster! There are many issues that have presented themselves with this new idea and they need to be solved.

For example, sometimes you have to walk more than half a block to purchase a ticket to put in the dash board. This is quite time consuming.

The council voted 47-2 to allow for a 5-minute grace period at Muni-Meters before officers can issue a ticket. “I actually had officers standing next to my car waiting for the time to expire,” one driver remarked.

In addition, you can’t ask someone to feed your meter, you have to give them your car keys and then make sure to get them back.  Another problem is that the ticket needs to be placed in the dashboard on the driver’s side, which is sometimes on the street side.  People need to put their ticket in the car while traffic is passing right alongside them, which can be quite dangerous!  If one has a baby carriage, they are forced to leave their baby unattended on the sidewalk while they place their ticket in the car.

What do you do when it’s raining outside and your umbrella is protecting you, your baby and other children?

Sometimes, Muni-Meters are broken. After searching for a spot for a long time, you are now stuck because you can’t get a ticket from any machine.  I can personally relate to this scenario:

It was a rainy day when I finally found a spot in front of a store. Soaked to the skin I had to run to the Muni-Meter located on the other end of the block. I was standing while the water rained down on me, pressing the buttons on the machine to make it work.  But it didn’t! Even though it’s easier for the Muni-Meter money collectors to amass from one machine per block it is bothersome to the general population.

As you can see, the Muni-Meters need to be dealt with. Are you going to go into action and do something or just stand there and let the government get away with it!

Calmer Times. Breslov chassidim on erev Rosh Hashanah in 2012 at the grave of Rav Nachman in Uman.

As optimistic as Menachem Rosenberg is – and he said he is going to Uman – he’s sure that this year, most of the travelers will not tour other religious sites or places in Ukraine.

Three sets of three-day Yomim Tovim can seem overwhelming – especially when we are trying to stay healthy.

Is a missed opportunity to do a mitzvah considered a sin?

The sounds and scents of the kitchen are cozy, familiar, but loud in the silence.

Everyone has a weakness. For some people it is the inability to walk past a sales rack without dropping a few hundred dollars. For others, it’s the inability to keep their house organized.

Not enjoying saying no, I often succumbed to requests viewing them as demands I couldn’t refuse.

His entire life was dedicated to Torah and he became a pivotal figure in the transmittal of the Oral Torah to the next generation.

When you don’t have anyone else to turn to… that’s when you’re tied to Hashem the closest.

While we all go to restaurants for a good meal, it is dessert, that final taste that lingers in your mouth, that is the crown jewel of any dining experience and Six Thirteen’s offerings did not disappoint.

Today, fifty years and six million (!) people later, Israel is truly a different world.

There will always be items that don’t freeze well – salads and some rice- or potato-based dishes – so you need to leave time to prepare or cook them closer to Yom Tov and ensure there is enough room in the refrigerator to store them.

In Uzbekistan, in the early twentieth century, it was the women who wore the pants.

This is an important one in raising a mentsch (and maybe even in marrying off a mentsch! listening skills are on the top of the list when I do shidduch coaching).
