Judaism And All Kinds Of Shit For Sale - Come One, Come All, To Our Holiday Sale

From An Aish Hatorah Advertisement.

Eternal Kaddish Service $540.00* tax-deductible donation

[Mishnayot forms the basis of the Talmud. The word Mishnah is comprised of the same letters as Neshama -- soul. Tradition teaches that study of Mishnayot on the Yahrtzeit brings great merit to the deceased, connecting the soul to the foundations of Jewish history, and strengthening the eternal spiritual bond with God.]

This book provides the comforting voice of wisdom at life's most painful moment, offering everything you need to know about mourning and coping with loss in Jewish tradition. Included is a 30-day guided exercise that both comforts the mourner, and according to Jewish mystical tradition, provides spiritual elevation for the soul of the departed.

On each Yahrzeit, Kaddish will be recited three times.

Mishnayot will be learned.

A Yahrzeit candle will be lit.

Please click here to fill out the Kaddish Request Form in order to begin Kaddish immediately.

As soon as we receive the name of the departed, we will start Kaddish. Upon receipt of payment, the name will be permanently instituted in our records.

This stinks to the heavens. Getting a donation is one thing, "selling" these services is disgusting.
Just another example of Judaism going into the commercial toilet.

Here is a true story. I must remain anonymous for this. I am a so-called "Ba al Tshuva". When I was at my BT yeshiva some years back, my grandfather died. I had been close to him, and I was sad. I told the Rosh Yeshiva. His eyes lit up, and the first thing out of his mouth to me was a question about getting donation to the yeshiva in my grandfather's memory. That's not what I needed to hear. Why I stayed frum after that is a good question.

Everything became a business today.

What used to separate us from the rest of the nations was the "BUSHA" or shame factor.

We're no different than animals anymore, we crap all over the place and on everyone, dead or alive without a scintilla of shame.

Their providing a service for people who want some learning done for a relative. Its a zechus for the person. THe only problem is the way its being done. The set amounts
for each service. People should be able to give what they can or feel is required. Is this the reason uoj is against this form of fund raising? Its the way its done?
Also, to anon. above the rosh yeshiva was wrong in the manner in which he responded to you.He should have done it with a little more class. However, theres nothing wrong with paying someone to learn for a deceased person,its a chesed and merit.However to sell it on the free market is kind of
cheap. do you agree?

Anon, 10:07,

Of course you're right.
To PUT A PRICE on these items is apalling.
One gives what they can. What an ugly, evil way of squeezing one for money at such a vulnerable time of one's life.

To the previous anonymous who lost his grandfather, please e-mail me the Rosh Yeshiva's name, he'll never know it's coming from you, I want to(verbally) slap him around a little.

Do you think that Aish HaTorah would turn someone away if they couldn't afford to pay the entire sum? I'd have a hard time believing that they would. Aish is definately over commercialized, and perhaps $540 is going to far, but I doubt they would turn someone away if lets say, they could only afford to give $100. I know a yeshiva that charges $1 per day to say kaddish. Sounds pretty reasonable to me.

The fact that there are so many Jews who don't say kaddish on their own, enough that a "business" can be made off of them, is also pretty sad. Most of them are probably relieved to be able to pay the money and get rid of the burden of saying kaddish. This way, they don't have to feel guitly and brake the promise they made to their parents that kaddish would be said for them.

Aish is one of the better organizations, yet they use these CRUDE tactics to the unknowing.

Advertise in a way that does NOT alienate thousands of secular Jews that feel exactly the way I do.

A simple comforting ad " In your time of mourning, please contact Aish".......

Trying to live the right way.

BTW, I think you should give an "Honorable Mention" to the low-life Shelly Silver for not appearing at the Policeman's funeral. What a shmuck.

Sheldon Silver is the greatest disgrace for his "protect the molester" and all his communist policies.

Give Shelly Hell!! UO.

I think we should have a protest demonstration in front of the Bialystoker Shul and seranade Shelly.

"Shelly Silver is A Shmuck!!"

Maybe the PBA demonstrate as well.

What a Chilul Hashem.

This cop gave his life so that scum like Shelly can walk the streets of the Lower East Side in safety. As the most powerful politician in NYS, you don't have the elementary human decency to go to the policeman's funeral?????????

Your answer, Shelly, when asked why you didn't show up at the funeral was;

"I don't go to public funerals."

Even Al Sharpton showed up and also paid a condolence cal to the 70th Precinct.

You piece of shit.

ponzi israel sells these services too. The plaques (and uoj must have several) are priced by size.

Kaddish is big business. Yahrzeit is regular income, bread and butter.

Why pick on one group and not your own?

Let the world know UOJ's proud "old fashioned" yeshiva, Ner Ponzi, also runs a business.

selective in whom we attack, no?

let's hear the dirt on all the places you benefited from, whose supporters might guess your identity, who will connect the dots and who will think even higher of you than you think of yourself.

We'll wait patiently for that blog.

They read me all the time, I listen to the chazaras hashatz and krias hatorah shmoozers, and get great pleasure in their cursing me out. Of course I agree with them, that if caught, UOJ should be sent to the hospital.
