@Yishai - Perhaps he is talking about Rabbi Simcha Zeisel Ziv from Kelm?

comment Halachically, why are men allowed to use urinals?
Mishna Berura 21:14 allows one to urinate while wearing his Talis. This would indicate to me that the Mishna Berura was OK with urinating while standing.

comment Is it wrong to ask for financial help after a personal loss?
@Danno: I have no issue with collecting via gofundme. I personally, recently set up such a site for a friend of mine going through difficulties. I got 2 letters of recommendation attached to the site. I have received some funds for it, and never have I been threatened. I am not suggesting he collect only on his home turf, I am suggesting how he can have legitimacy on gofundme.

comment Is it wrong to ask for financial help after a personal loss?
@Danno: There can always be very unique situations. Most times a Jewish fellow has a connection with a Rabbi, Rosh Yeshiva, person who was Megayer him, person who was involved with making him Frum, and can get a reference letter even if they live in the Boondocks.

comment Is it wrong to ask for financial help after a personal loss?
Why would it be wrong to ask for help? I think the best situation is if you can get letters of recommendation from a Rabbi that is well known. If that is not possible even from a less known Rabbi attesting to the authenticity of your situation. Why one would threaten you is beyond me. If one feels you are being untrue they can just not donate. It seems like you are connected with people that are mean spirited (from making fun of your name, to threatening, accusing, etc.). Perhaps it is time to find some real friends.

@DanF: Yes I do agree to disagree. Yet if your case is in a unique situation it does not prove anything.

comment Mesader Kidushin late - How long to wait?
@DanF: At the weddings I attend the Mesader Kidushin fills in the Kesuba. So if he is not there the Kesuba has not been signed yet.

comment Mesader Kidushin late - How long to wait?
@DanF: I think it is not smart for a Chasan not to wait for his parents. I think it is a terrible lack of Derech Eretz.
