OFFERING HELP TO A BAALAS SIMCHA REVISITED

Dear Editor:

I think the letter about helping the baalas simcha was spot on! I can truly understand what the letter writer was describing as I too, have been in the position of running around B”H for good things and was unable to feed my family at the time. Perhaps people will become aware of this concept that offering to make supper for a family busy with simchos and see that it’s a great idea!

Editor’s Note: I think the concept is around that people make suppers for people who have just given birth. Perhaps you would like to start a Gemach of sorts to provide suppers for busy baalei simcha.

BACK EDITIONS OF YOUR LETTERS

Dear Editor:

I really enjoy your weekly stuff. I teach English to chasidim. At the time of Black Friday, I read your letters to the editor to my class and they really enjoyed it. One of the columns mentioned DansDeals.com. If there is any way that I can get all those letters to the editor piece from that week, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

B.M.

Editor’s Note: You can probably find it on the website www.thevuesonline.com. If not, you would have to indicate which issue you’d like and we can look it up in our archives.

WONDERFUL PUBLICATION

Dear Editor:

I love your magazine and get it every week, not necessarily for the sales, but to read the paper. I love the articles and I also like to read “Speak Ur Vues.” I had some difficulty reading the article written by R’ Berach Steinfeld in the last couple of issues. It was in such small print that I could not read it, even with my magnifying lenses! Maybe you can find some more space in your magazine to use a little larger print for this particular article. it’s always so interesting! Thank you. Shabbat Shalom

Editor’s Note: I think your point is very well taken, especially for the part of the public who have to use reading glasses!

HAT BRIMS

Dear Editor:

What do you feel is the right size brim for bar mitzva boys to wear? Small brims or large brims? What do you feel about boys keeping their brims up? Is there a difference between yeshivish boys and non-yeshivish boys?

Editor’s Note: It sounds like a style discussion. Let everybody choose their style they wish to wear. Just be careful not to take styles from the goyim.

HOME SCHOOLING

Dear Editor:

What is this new phenomenon that people are starting to homeschool their children? The Yeshiva system with all its flaws is still the best option. I believe there is too much knocking against Yeshivas. Our yeshivas work very hard to educate our children and because there are some who have had not such a good

experience start gossiping against the yeshivas and cause irreparable harm. We need to show appreciation to all those in chinuch who are often underpaid and their pay comes late.

Thank You,

Father in Flatbush

Editor’s Note: I don’t think homeschooling is a good idea. Children need to interact with other kids their age.

TALMIDEI CHOCHOMIM TO BE HEEDED

Dear Editor:

Those who say that Rabbis should stay out of politics please see Reb Moshe on P. 123

“There are people who maintain that Talmidei Chachomim are not qualified to decide political matters, that Gedolei Yisroel should limit themselves to Torah and Halacha. Such people cannot be considered within the Torah camp. One might well say ignoring the advice of a Talmid Chochom is far worse than violating a commandment. One who violates a commandment because he is too weak to resist temptation, at least knows that his action is wrong. By contrast, one who ignores the advice of a Talmid Chochom denies that a Torah scholar’s wisdom is superior. This is a far more serious breach.”

I think these words speak volumes.

Moshe S

Editor’s Note: As the mishna in Avos says, “Hafoch ba v’hafoch ba dikula ba.” Everything is in the Torah. So when one needs guidance, in all areas, he should turn to his Rav.

STOP TALKING IN SHUL

Dear Editor:

Hundreds of thousands of Jews were murdered during Tach V’Tat, the Tosfos Yom Tov says, as a result of the widespread talking in shul. I believe we should stop the talking in Shul.

Isaac P.

Editor’s Note: You are echoing the stop talking in shul campaign which is definitely bringing Moshiach closer!
