(Sorry, I don’t mean me..!!).
My friend from seminary went to the mikvah yesterday, finishing her geirut process. She texted after her last beit din meeting, so I knew it was happening and I couldn’t wait until a reasonable hour in her time zone to text her yesterday morning, haha.
She called me after the mikvah to tell me about it (she has been shaking & crying saying the brachot), give me the bracha that it should soon be by me, that I should then my find my besheret and build a bayit ne’eman b’Yisrael.
I sat on the couch and just burst out crying as she was speaking. What a powerful moment.
I second Basi’s Tehillim rec. It’s all in there. ♥
Sometimes when I’m feeling down, I really want to pray and ask Hashem for guidance and opportunities to be better, but I don’t know how. I feel like the internet keeps leading me to dead ends or Christian sites. I still haven’t gotten a siddur, although I don’t know if a prayer like that would even be in there. Do you guys know of anything helpful? Sometimes I just think my thoughts to G-d but I know I can do better.
Send me assumptions you make about me and ill answer true/false
can anyone recommend a book of tehillim? i’d prefer one that is english/hebrew (but no transliteration) and not artscroll.
Sigh. Feeling really quite uncomfortable while my self-identifiying as frum roommate is curled up on the loveseat with her BF an he’s stroking her and had his hand across her chest.
Maybe I’m just really overly sensitized, but squick.
Find another hobby to quench your attention deficit.
That literally made no sense, and you’ve already gotten more of my time and energy than you deserve so you’ll get no more of either. Whatever your personal status is (which it’s clear you have issues about), may you find peace with it.
know your place
Oh, HELL no.
If you are a halachic convert, you have as much right to have opinions and be validated as anyone else. The Talmud teaches that you stood at Sinai, and you have a Jewish soul.
Miss lady needs to remember the halacha around reminding geirim of their previous life. And of speech and respect.
(Thought taken from a Shiur by Rabbanit Yemima Mizrachi!)
This year we have Adar א along with Adar ב — which means 60 days of Adar. Which in turn means 60 days of simcha. (Okay, okay 59 but hush, poetic license!).
GUYS. Remember hilchot kashrut?? May all of your probelms, troubles, struggles, insecureties, and general non-sameiach-ness be BATEL B’SHISHIM!!(Mind! Blown!).
Got an email from seminary with a video Shiur (on WoW/WfW stuff!) this morning. Took me back in such a bittersweet way.
I used to learn in that room! Hey, I remember that picture on the wall and that podium! Oooh, there’s my old roommate!
I miss being there so much..!
(Now I just have to find a spare hour to actually listen to the full Shiur…).
