  1. more like it, consider your feelings of animosity toward these women and realize that if CHV”SH you are negligent in this same way R”L, you will cause that feeling toward the entire orthodox community. this is one message we can learn from this story.

  2. #7 More than that. We are human and they are human. It so happened that my ancestors merited to receive the Torah and theirs did not. Enough of this elitist/ hubristic (word?) attitude. It’s wrong to define ourselves by bashing others. We have gratitude that we were born into a special nation; we have a sense of mission. End of story.

  3. even with the ac on its still ebdangering the lives of the children. why? maybe the gas will run out and it goes off or otherwise stops working. something i didnt realize until reading the fine print. shomer psa-im hashem. we are all his creations, and must act accordingly. lifes value must go up to bring the lesson home.
