Sitting in shull

December 31, 2006

1

I shifted my weight uncomfortably in my blue fabric seat, I switched the leg I had crossed to the other one and casually stared around the cramped basement shull. The sea of black hats fluttered in and I noticed their stares toward my direction, the lone non-hat wearing guy. I tried not to stare into […]

Please visit my new site for more shidduch crisis rants and videos as well. This site has moved to http://frumsatire.net So the shidduch crisis or shall I say the “accumulating older frum singles” crisis is upon us at least thats what everyone keeps saying. Yet I still do not notice many things changing which should […]

Shabbos in Monsey

December 31, 2006

1

I walked into shull 20 minutes late and couldn’t find a seat. I knew that would happen, my cousin warned me when he knocked on my door earlier that morning. There was a bar mitzvah today. At least the sidduri were in the back so I didn’t have to make a scene as a walked […]

My Quarter Life Crisis

December 28, 2006

2

I just tried to get a job, the perfect job it may have been really. Two women just came into the store and tried to bargain with me on pretty much everything in the store. They were obviously New Yorkers, I despise them usually. They spoke of my lack of marketing for the store, why […]

More labels that didn’t make it to the main list: Sheitle Hookers– You those women you see walking down central avenue in the five towns, wearing a tight leather skirt, hooker boots, breasts falling out of their shirts as long as they have their sheitle on. This is thanks to a compliment about this post […]

A friend of mine sent me this article from Haaretz. It is shocking and horrible- so why not spread the negativity as some of you may think. But actually this is just the tip of the iceberg with regards to the “frummer than thou” mentality that has already existed in Israel with the throwing stones […]

Gelila: a mockery of the shull reject

December 27, 2006

0

I posted this several months back- I have reworked it and changed some stuff. Hope you like it. Gelila is a weird event, according to some sources it is held to a very lofty position and one who gets it is honored. Well I have noticed that over the years Gelila has been cast down […]

The mystery of the spoiled milk

December 27, 2006

4

So my roommate keeps cholov yisroel and therefore only drinks New Square milk. Problem is that for some reason of which I will discuss the milk never lasts more then 3 or 4 days. It is delivered every Thursday to Price Chopper, and then once you buy it it pretty much spoils right away at […]

My New Blog – www.frumoutdoorsman.worpress.com

So for some time I had another blog called The Frum Outdoorsman, but I didnt publicize o even update it. I have decided to try and keep it up to date. I hope to get some comments and emails of folks who are interested in the Outdoors and happen to be religious Jews- since they […]

How was your weekend?

So I bet all of you are wondering what I did this weekend. It was a long weekend not because of the red suited fat old rabbi looking guy but because the weather was mighty fine and I had to enjoy it because well you never know in December. On Thursday night I loaded up […]
