How do the purveyors define "Bais-Yosef" beef?

Is that definition the same as your definition?

In other words- Are you receiving Bais-Yosef as you perceive it to be Bais Yosef?

We believe NO!

Who's that?

We'll explain;

Lakewood - the-rishus-continues-when-will-it-end- The therapists, etc are the group responsible- Sidom at it's best

The Lakewood therapists, etc and their Rabonim etc ( a mafia style) are the group responsible for shalom Bayis issues, separations, divorces, breaking up families, etc.

We have been monitoring the methods and results of these so called therapists, etc for the past  few years.

It's not as bad as you think, it's much worse!. 

"Rishus" is too mild of a description.

Guest comment. [Hefker velt]

Its a Hefker velt, thats exactly how to describe what goes on when dealing with the sensitive issue of shalom bayis and  R'L divorce. There is no responsible system set up, no trusted agency al pi Torah and halacha. 

No communal standard that everyone adheres to, or even a bes din to turn to. Its unfortunate that so many homes are shattered as a result of total incompetence, inexperience in dealing with the issues and problems of shalom bayis. 
Its a Hefkervelt when any Askan, therapist, social worker or Rav, can do what they want with no accountability for their actions. They get away with it time and time again. There is no mirsas, no fear, no repercussions its do what ever you please. They dont have to answer up to anybody. 
Take one side of a story, give bad advice, dont do basic homework or due diligence its only nefashos were dealing with. So what if you have no experience in shalom bayis issues, who says you cant take it on all by yourself? no one is stopping you. No guidelines set in place making sure all 

Update: Lakewood "therapists & Mentors" are רודפים

Lakewood "Therapists & Mentors" just broke another family!!
Protect our children?

Don't push "Ritalin" on them like lollipops.
Ritalin? sure! so the School administrators can provide paying clients to their therapists.

Don't let Therapist [Terrorists](backed by Rabbonim) to break apart families. [Their success rate in at 99%]
Don't let the Rabbonim and therapists run for restraining orders against their husbands, who happens to be the father of her children.
She is throwing her children to the dogs. That's what revenge is.

Don't work in unison to support financially the therapists, by sending the parents, the children, etc. to therapy.

That's perhaps why children lost their respect for Rabbonim!

Don't allow the מקוה to break families. Terrorists & Rabbonim do it constantly R"L

מקוה schedules in WG are by pay-for-play? 
Get rid of the ones in charge, from the Rabbonim down. Get rid of the corruption in WG.
Don't play dumb.

Pros & Cons of "MUST go" to Seminary in Israel

There has been lately many that strongly oppose the ingrained concept that "must go to Seminary in Israel" in order to marry the right Ben-Torah.

The Pros are self evident.

The Cons;

The huge expense that most can't afford.

That $20,000.00 plus [saved] can help the new young couple.

Training for a parnosah delayed by at least a year.

They don't receive the tools needed to prepare for a Torah marriage, etc.
Delaying marriage by at least a year.

A girl should be under the supervision of their parents (enough said!)

We have heard of the tragic experiences in some Israel seminaries.

If we are talking about hashkofah, yahdus, etc in order to go into chinuch? Gateshead is more geared to that element.

There is a brand of olive oil Ptora being distributed in the area which is an Israeli product from the shemita year. It was brought in to Kosher Marketplace but has been withdrawn on my instructions. Poskim in Israel have ruled that returning heter mechira product to distributors does not constitute a violation of איסור סחורה בפירות שביעית.
However there are also people who have an open container and that is a real problem, Shemita produce may not be discarded even though it has been exported to Chutz Laaretz. But possibly it is already אחר שעת הביעור in which case it has to be destroyed. One person told me he has leftover oil in his Menorah from this batch, and now does not know if it should be destroyed or if he must use it.

Sabath "not-friendly" appliances.

Before one should rely on this feature a major issue has to clarified. When the refrigerator is in Sabbath Mode does any digital activity take place. I will give 2 examples of this issue but please remember there could be more depending on the complexity of the model purchased.
         1> The digital thermostat. Even in an instance that the thermostat is not triggering the compressor to go on or off and the compressor is triggered by a timer while in Sabbath Mode The issue is  the thermostat may still be recording the temperature i.e. the temperature inside is at 33 when you open the door the temperature will move to 34 this will not turn on the compressor but the digital thermostat will record the current temperature to be 34. This act of recording that the temperature is now 34 can involve chilul Shabbos .                                
            2> The door open/close sensors even though the automatic defrost will not activate regardless of how many times the door opens or closes when in Sabbath Mode. The sensors may be recording the number of times this is being done. This also may involve Chillul Shabbos. Unfortunately I could not find any specs to clarify these points. I would be grateful to anyone that emails or posts their knowledge to clarify this issue.

We must remember that the organization involved with the creation and implementation of this feature is headed by a person who has issued many dubious psakim over the years. Recently he wrote an article which concludes that one cannot run an on line business on Shabbos. He was forced to retract since it was obvious to everyone that he knew nothing of how the on line industry operates and the psak was completely based on assumptions that he imagined. He has other psakim using a light bulb for pas akum, which is a direct cause of intermarriage [heard from Reb Shlomo Zalman Aurebach, OB"M].

He uses a psak issued in the 1950’s for Bedikas Toloyim when everything was sprayed with DTD and says that we can do today what was done then. In relation to the Sabbath Mode he is Matir to adjust a digital thermostat of an electric range on Yom Tov when the range is in Sabaath Mode. Therefore  if the thermostat is active or the sensors are active I would not rely on his word that there is no Chillul Shabbos unless I heard the same from more reliable sources.

The good news is that Intermatic makes a timer which has a seven day span and allows for 28 settings. This would give you 14 off settings. For a 3 day Shabbos and Yom Tov you would have to divide these settings amongst 3 days. The model number is DT620 it costs about $15.00 on Amazon. The setting up is not that intuitive but after following the instructions carefully several times everything starts to make sense.
