Unbelievable class on the inner meanind of the Cherubs, the angelic statues above the Holy Ark. It's an intermediate level...he translates most of the Hebrew he quotes so don't be scared. JEWS--Learn your heritage!
you do realize that frummies are overrepresented on freeper?
What does that mean? All mimsy were the borogroves?
There is even a thread on FR concerning Rav Yisroel Belsky, and no, not to belittle him for being unelightened; it was for his refuah!
There are a ton of conservative Jews on this site (and by that I mean politically first, “conservative Jewry” second....) So I have a feeling that brave people that conservatives are, they can open up a shiur and give it 30 seconds to decide whether to continue or not.
Ping me when there is a transcript, please?
"Frummies" is a slang (sometimes derogatory, although that's not how it was meant here) term for ultra-Orthodox Jews, from the Yiddish word frum (Orthodox) which is in turn derived from the German word (I'm not sure if I'm spelling it right) fromm, meaning "pious."
Oh. Learned something new. Thanks!
That’s OK, I don’t understand the more arcane Christian references on religion threads.
It's also credited to a 1940's writer but I remember it as a child, the tune and some of the words.
The chorus:`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.'
Yes, I love that poem, and after a beer, I can recite the whole thing from memory. Just a warning...
Sounds like something you’d hear in an Irish pub...
You using the term frummies could be construed as a put-down or making fun of the entire Hasidic community. I suggest you choose your words wisely.
I would imagine that you are aware that I am not only Ortho, but my son just returned from Israel studying in Reischit and I am a founder of the largest friendship circle chapter, and my wife is a direct descendant of Yehoshua ben Perichya. So I will refer to myself and my community as frummie. Pinchas didn’t mind.
I didn’t mind, true. But if we revealled to our Christian friends that the Jews are taking over FreeRepublic.... (Just kidding... )
Then please accept my apology. I do not know you or your sense of humor.
