The Loop

I still love the original loop

I'm not ready to just abandon the Loop, it's been around for a long time, and its fun to go back and look at the archives. I feel like the Facebook Loop won't be as good

Rosh Hashannah

This is probably an easy question but I cant think of an answer

Why is Rosh Hashannah consider part of the 10 days of repentance? We are not allowed to say vidui- We dont say Al chet- We dont say Ashamu etc. But according to the Rambam there is no Teshuvah without Vidui. What makes my question even odder is that the main Mitzvah of rosh hashanah is blowing the shofar which is to awaken us to do teshuvah- but we cant do teshvah without vidui ?
A conumdrum .
I will offer up a large SLURPY to anyone who can satisfy me with an answer.
(Americans can collect the slurpy at 7-11 and Israelis can collect it at Holy Bagel in MOdiin

the basement wall

i , with help of jeff lazar, am building a wall in the basement to make into a bedroom for our out of town guests when they come to visit. (really jeff is making the wall and i am handiing him the tools) but now we got to the hard part, the frame is done and now i need to put up the dry wall. the problem is jeff doesn't do drywall and when i asked someone if i could do it they laughed at the thought. so someone else suggested "finished " drywall. i thought that was a great idea so i bought 6 panels for the wall. i bring it home and now it doesnt make any sense how to put it up. i am very confused, please help

A בור ing question

I just came back from the kollel and am bothered by the following question. If anyone can help, i would appreciate it
It says in BABA KAMMA if one person dug a pit 10 tephachim deep, a second person added to it to 20 tephachim deep and then a third person came and dug it to 30 tephachim deep. Now an unlucky ox happens to fall into the pit- ALL 3 DIGGERS ARE OBLIGATED TO PAY DAMAGES. Why- I understand the 1 st guy is responsible- he dug a dangerous pit in a public domain, the 3 rd guy could be responsible because the ox hit the bottom of the pit where the actual damage occurred. Why is the middle guy responsible ?? Isnt it like a person falling off a building and just before he hits the ground, someone shoots him. He isnt guilty- he killed a dead person. The second guy didnt cause any damage // Sometimes the things that bother me are ODD.

I'm feeling fine

No need to go the Doctor

Remember when?

Remember when people would write things on the Loop like, "E is coughing and has a sore throat"? And then there was Facebook. And I'm taking him to the doc this morning.

don't know why, but this song has been in my it's in yours too. Yes, I feel better, thank you :)

How did Noach get all the animals, put in his tayva to fit
How could Avraham walk through a fire, without getting burnt a bit?

It must of been a miracle, a fantastic amazing miracle from the one and only Hashem
It must of been a miracle, a most amazing miracle from the one and only Hashem

How did Yaakov fight with an angel, and no he did not get creamed,
Yosef hatzadik – well he knew the meaning to everyone else's dreams
How did the Jews get out of mitzrayim where they all worked as slaves
Walked through the yam suf without getting wet, while the mitzrim were hit with waves.

It must of been a miracle, a fantastic amazing miracle from the one and only Hashem
It must of been a miracle, a most amazing miracle from the one and only Hashem

Why did the sun stand still in the heaven, in valley of ashlon
How did young Dovid kill the giant with nothing more than a stone
How could Daniel sit with the lion, who was so hungry and mean
King Achashverosh from all of those ladies picked Esther to be his queen.

How does tiny Eretz Yisroel continue to survive?
Surrounded by nations who wish to destroy her, there's only one reason why

Its gotta have been a miracle, a fantastic amazing miracle from the one and only Hashem
Its gotta be a miracle, a most amazing miracle from the one and only Hashem

You'll see real soon, something's gonna happen, that makes all the others seem small
Thunder and lightning, and the sound of a shofar, Mashiach's will give us his call.

It's gonna be a miracle, a fantastic amazing miracle from the one and only Hashem
It's gonna be a miracle, the most amazing miracle from the one and only Hashem

I forgot what I what I wanted to say

Over Shabbat I had a great thought, and it was funny, and every one of you who reads this blog would be laughing hysterically. Sadly, I forgot what it was. Sorry.
