Audio: Rav Mattisyahu Salomon weekly Shmues
Ki Sisa 5771
Shmuess to Bochrim
What about men? Wasn't reb aharon staunchly against collage? What's the new trend of BMG yungerlite leaving yeshiva and becoming accountants? Do the roshei yeshiva give their blessing?
the way many many in lakewood do without collage, bitochon, managing with less, no having massive houses and fancy cars....
Reb Matisyahu Shlita is trying "lehachzir atara leyoshna"! He is trying to reach the real b'nei aliya - not the average "gotta sit in Kollel till my shvers kest runs out" yungerman. To the b'nei aliya he's saying you should strive to live with pashtus, not needing as much.
So the mashgiach lives in a very simple house& has a very simple lifestyle on pas bemelach toichal?
BTW I didn't here the shmoose, only about being in a makom Torah a transcript would be easier & appreciated.
Dosent Rav Yisroel Nuemans daughter go to college?
"He is trying to reach the real b'nei aliya - not the average "gotta sit in Kollel till my shvers kest runs out" yungerman."
If you cheat on programs, are you STILL a 'Ben Aliya'!!!
I for one do not believe in living off the father in law and shnorring from every government program possible. There are many kosher options for college which are a lot more expensive than non-jewish colleges. Some people can afford this and some cant. Those who cant should ask their rabbi a shailah. I will not go against the words of the rosh yeshiva but I am commenting to the above commenters. Don't be stupid and think that the shver can afford to support you and all your eight kids. He is in more debt than you'll ever know. It is time to stop fooling ourselves. One can be a ben torah and live a very toradige lifestyle even if it means going out to work and supporting a family. One is supposed to support his own family, and not rely and the rest of the world.
As someone who knew him from England, it always amazes me how Lakewood and the US have made him into a gadol.
= actually the frum programs are cheaper.
I have been thru the frum colleges and thru the community non jewish colleges. the frum colleges are A FEW THOUSAND DOLLARS MORE per semester! dont talk if you havent been there!
All the people that are trying to object to R' Solomns speech based on findings that Gedolai Yisroel's relatives went to college is fallacious. Who ever said that they agreed with what their relatives where doing and who ever said that they didn't object to it.....very weak objection... And those that are trying to object with the vehement rhetoric about "programs" is once again a totally irrelevant objective. If one objects to R Solomons comments, please bring pertinent and relevant proofs/arguments not irrelevant and unsubstantiated objections....
