  1. Great job Lema'an Achai!

    It is wonderful to see Lema'an Achai address this most serious issue in our city.

    I hope that there is a big turnout of parents who may have this problem in their home already and also other parents who wish to prevent it before it happens.

    This is just another reason why I like to support Lema'an Achai!

  2. Haskama from a Rabbi?

    God Help us! What have we come to?

    A guy who is an MSW and Certified Psychotherapist needs a "haskama" from a rabbi to practice his profession?!

    Has everyone gone insane? And this is posted from Lemaan Achai!?!

    Will Klempner be paskening on the status of shechted cows during his lecture? Whether or not brushing teeth is permitted on Shabbos? Maybe he'll try to slip in a psak on when to observe Purim in Beit Shemesh?

    Cant take any chance. Phew. He has a Haskama from a rabbi.

    Get me out of here.

  3. And if he didn't have the haskama from Rav Twersky I'm certain that Lema'an Achai would be blasted for hosting someone who isn't "kosher enough". I know this Binyomin Klempner and his "haskama" is that Rav Twersky feeks he is qualified both from a professional and Torah viewpoint.

    After all it is Rav Twersky and not someone in Bnei Brak giving the haskama here.

    Get a life.

    Jeez, Lema'an Achai is damned if they do and damned if they don't!

  4. Rav Twersky feels..oops

  5. I attended the lecture. What a shame there was a small turnout.

    Binyomin Klempner was informative and interesting to hear.

    He peppered practical advice with stories, hashkofa and straight forward common sense.

    I hope that he and Lema'an Achai will offer more such lectures in the future.
