Subject:  Jeans and Oven
Message:  1. Re. jeans, shouldn't we go by what society regards as proper and respecful -- e.g ., you wouldn't go to a funeral in jeans, so since in the U.S. jeans are not regarded as that nice, you shouldn't wear them on Shabbat.

2. If you cook milk and meat in the oven at the same time is that a problem? If so, then how do we know that some of these companies making products are not doing that.
Reply:  1) A funeral is the only time the Yeshiva outfits actually fit. It's like the clock without the battery, it's accurate twice a day.
There are many a people that wear a nice pair of blue jeans and a sports jacket to a nice restaurant for dinner. Sure, don't wear dirty old worn-out jeans, but the same goes for that dirty old worn-out suit and hat.
2) It's not a problem, but I don't recommend you do it at home. It can cause you problems if you spill something and your supper will be in the garbage. In companies this is non-existant.
