Are you a baal teshuva by chance? --Jellyfish 23:57, 17 June 2008 (EDT)

Frum (for you goyim out there, that's Yiddish for religous) from birth, yeshiva educated, semicha (that's Rabbinic ordination) AND Liberal. DLerner 00:02, 18 June 2008 (EDT)

What state are you in? --Jellyfish 00:06, 18 June 2008 (EDT)

For the next few months I'm in Australia. What about you, what's your level of Jewyness? DLerner 00:08, 18 June 2008 (EDT)

lenient baal teshuva right now, plan on getting more religious when I marry a f.f.b. --Jellyfish 00:11, 18 June 2008 (EDT)

What state are you usually in and are most Orthodox Jews there conservative or liberal --Jellyfish 00:11, 18 June 2008 (EDT)

I'm from Michigan, but I haven't lived there full time for years for years. I've been at yeshiva and Shlichus (for those not in the know, look it up), but I may be heading back to Michigan in a few months.

As far as the politics of Orthodox Jews: It depends, many orthodox Jews are conservative Republicans because of Israel, vouchers for private schools, and a variety of religious reasons. However, you also have liberals like me.

What about you? Where are you from? DLerner 00:19, 18 June 2008 (EDT)

I'm liberal from Texas, The younger Orthodox Jews I have noticed are more conservative than their parents, I don't know what that is though --Jellyfish 00:27, 18 June 2008 (EDT)

There is 5 rabbis in my neighborhood and all are baalei teshuva, 95%+ of the Orthodox Jews aged 17-35 are baalei teshuva, it is also really hard getting a job since I can't work on Shabbos --Jellyfish 00:30, 18 June 2008 (EDT)

Talk to you later I have to go to sleep --Jellyfish 00:31, 18 June 2008 (EDT)

Yeah, sometimes that's what happens, typically to the guys that listen to Limbaugh and Hannity every day (personally I'm a Stewart, Colbert, Maher and Olbermann person myself). There are some older members of the community that are pretty conservative, but contrary to what Andy would have us believe, I get along with them just fine. We drinking scotch together at the Kiddush while we discuss politics. Here in Australia, the people don't follow the politics too well, so I usually have the last word when it comes to American politics. What's funny is that there's a family I'm very close with, they are pretty liberal, very intelligent and yet they but into the "Obama is a Muslim" nonsense.
I heard that some of the supporters of Clinton also are saying that, to slander Obama --Jellyfish 00:40, 18 June 2008 (EDT)

Ridiculous nonesense on Liberapedia[edit]

Ben Stein[edit]

Can you add a link to your front page Ben Stein story that actually links to Stein saying this, or a news report of it? All the links currently just go to internal RW pages. DogP 19:49, 24 July 2008 (EDT)

Transclude your enormous signature or suffer my wrath[edit]

~ Gloom(is never asleep) 05:46, 27 July 2008 (EDT)

OK, How do you do it?

OK, I think I figured it out הרב ד.לערנער Ask the Rabbi a question 06:08, 27 July 2008 (EDT)

NOPE, how do you do it? הרב ד.לערנער Ask the Rabbi a question 06:09, 27 July 2008 (EDT)

(Edit conflict) Not quite. You need to make a second template and call the first one through it. Otherwise it isn't actually transcluding, and you may as well just have put that code in your prefs directly. See instructions below:
User:DLerner/sig -- Done.
User:DLerner/sig2 -- just contains "{{User:DLerner/sig}}"
And the sig field in your preferences should contain "{{User:DLerner/sig2}}".
Any questions? ~ Gloom(is never asleep) 06:13, 27 July 2008 (EDT)
Yes: Why don't you put this in the help files instead of having to explain it all over again every time? --AKjeldsenCum dissensie 06:16, 27 July 2008 (EDT) 06:16, 27 July 2008 (EDT)
I was going to make a special template to drop on people's talk pages. It would say something like "Your signature is far too big! Please learn how to transclude it by making the relevant inquiries here." ~ Gloom(is never asleep) 06:19, 27 July 2008 (EDT)
That would be very not-nice of you. Why would you dangle the faint, volatile hope of competent assistance in front of people, only to have it crushed by the harsh light of reality? --AKjeldsenCum dissensie 06:26, 27 July 2008 (EDT)


On conservapedia you said that you did not like the cp:Kosher article because it was not comprehensive enough. Could you give me some suggestions. Also I just created cp:Wikiproject:Religion since you are a rabbi could you help us on Judaism articles? --TherealDeborah 23:54, 28 July 2008 (EDT)

Marriage Essay[edit]

I never saw the Marry a Conservative essay until I saw it from your user page. Wow. I mean, wow- talk about vagina dentata. I'm curious- as a rabbi, do you have a synagogue? I used to be completely ignorant of Judaism until I recently moved to NYC. Now I'm only probably 70-75% ignorant. CorryTalk 23:10, 30 July 2008 (EDT)

Hehe, I wonder if we need an article on "vagina dentata"? Hmmmm... ħumanUser talk:Human 23:35, 30 July 2008 (EDT)

I do. A little anecdote: my great aunt, a very old and sweet little lady from a small southern (US) town was visiting NYC for the first time with some family. It was 1992, and and the Democratic National Convention was going on, and she saw all the people decked out in red white and blue, etc. and asked somebody what was going on, and they explained that the convention was being held in Madison Square Garden. She then saw some Hasidim, and having never seen any before, asked "I wonder what convention they're going to?" CorryTalk 11:09, 31 July 2008 (EDT)


What does "transclude" mean, exactly? and why should I do it to my sig, pray tell? Spica the Hiver If you tolerate this, then your children will be next... 06:54, 31 July 2008 (EDT)

It means "to include everything on another page here", and on your sig, if you want, you can make it short on pages, but as pretty as the transcluded page. Please see our help pages. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:02, 8 August 2008 (EDT)


I clicked on the link that said "Can't read it? Learn how to speak Yiddish". But there's no Yiddish language program here, as I expected, just a bunch of arse instead. What lies have I been fed? Where is the Professor? What is the curriculum? DogP 23:41, 7 August 2008 (EDT) "Arse". It can smell, sometimes. ħumanUser talk:Human 01:53, 8 August 2008 (EDT)


It translates to "Andy Schlafly is a putz". Godspeed אנדי שלאפלי איז א פאץ What, you can't read it? Learn how to speak Yiddish 08:52, 10 August 2008 (EDT)

Har har. Godspeed to you too Sir! DogP 12:25, 10 August 2008 (EDT)

Sorry 'bout that[edit]

Sorry my friend, I use the word freely in my personal life and usually do actually make distinction between actual brown-shirts and people I am just laying abuse at. Like if I called someone a muthafuck I am not suggesting they actually do such a thing. However, for all my psycho-babble, I respect you veiw and will refrain. Thanks!

Not to worry my Kiwi friend. It must cold as fuck down there, even here in Brisbane it's cold. ДЛеяиея Come see if I suffer fools gladly | A place for my stuff 05:46, 11 August 2008 (EDT)
Un-freaking believable cold. I shudder to have to go outside to smoke but horrible healthy girlfriend insists. BAH! I say. Ace McWickedBipedaling 05:49, 11 August 2008 (EDT)

DLerner abusing power[edit]

First of all, DLerner was abusive in the way he spoke to SockofCPuser; second, he has no right to block him for mentioning his existence. MYOB is not an answer! It paves the way for abuse and must be stopped! NorsemanWassail! 22:23, 25 August 2008 (EDT)

Not meaning to question your mighty Joo powers, but I thought that your unwelcoming of User talk: for his edit to the list of conspiracy theories was a teensy bit harsh. A quick Google search shows that the Lennon-Reagon-King conspiracy theory does exist. I haven't looked far enough into it to tell if it's a legit whacko theory or a satirical one. But even if this wasn't the case & the user was making up, surely that would constitute harmless not-unfunny wandalism. I.E. It's not actually undermining an article to contradict our missions, like most of the vandalism to this site does. PDNBTN! weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 08:35, 26 August 2008 (EDT)
Weeeeell, you see, the problem is that the Nixon/Reagan/King/Lennon story is not a conspiracy theory, it's simply the truth. :P ħumanUser talk:Human 19:20, 26 August 2008 (EDT)
