Copied from facebook:

"There is an inverse relationship between how awful and evil an Israeli politician is and how many foreign heads of state come to his funeral.

Yehuda Avner z"l wrote about Menachem Begin's death/funeral in his first hand account of his work as the personal advisor to 4 Israeli PMs in "The Prime Ministers":

"The curtain descended and the lights went out on 9 March 1992. Menachem Begin, Israel's 6th prime minister, died of a heart attack, and Yechiel Kadishai opened the envelope which Begin had entrusted to him. The handwritten note it contained read:

My Dear Yechiel:
When the day comes, I request that you read to my dear ones, to my friends and comrades, this request: I ask to be buried on the Mount of Olives next to Meir Feinstein and Moshe Barazani. I thank you and all those who will carry out my request.
With love,
Menachem Begin

World leaders readied to fly to Jerusalem to attend the funeral, but Israeli embassies were swiftly instructed to inform governments that, at the request of the deceased, the funeral was to be a traditionally Jewish one: no lying in state, no military guard of honour, no official delegations, not even eulogies."............
==============================
I don't remember either many  foreign heads of state at Itzchak Shamir's funeral...nor at Reahavm Zeevi, זצוק״ל, הי״ד, or at Rafel Eitan's, זצוק״ל, הי״ד

And after all he did to ensure that thousands of Jews were murdered for the sake of "peace", this is what "they" think about him:

I never thought I would see the day when sensible people on the Right would be calling Shimon Peres a "good man".

It's comforting to know that all is forgiven once you die, and that you are suddenly a hero.

If he was even slightly responsible for the creation of Israel's Nuclear Program then he was nothing less than a hero

Israel would have had nukes with or without him. Also, don't forget the little factoid that Israel was attacked from two fronts on Yom Kippur 1973, AFTER they had nukes.

Ah, resorting to name-calling.

Perhaps you should explain your statement. Explain how the nukes saved Israel before declaring Peres a hero. I just proved to you that the nukes did NOT deter Syria and Egypt from attacking Israel in 1973.

From the school:
Quote
Shua was patient, genuine, and a great peer and friend to his classmates. He always offered his time to help his fellow students and externs. He could balance home and school in a way many cannot accomplish. His work on externship and internship with patients was exceptional. In his admissions statement, he wrote, My dream is to be a lamplighter; to transform the darkness of our world to light and happiness. For the five and a half years he spent with the program and in his clinical placementshe certainly was able to bring light and happiness to our community and spread it to his patients. The Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program and LIU Post have lost a wonderful aspiring psychologist.

And regarding the YWN drivel, what's the point of the below paragraph? (And why not include something about his gadlus btorah and as a manhig Yisroel instead of the implication of some voodoo style sickness)

In a shocking twist of events in the past three weeks, his oldest daughter suffered a fatal heart attack two weeks ago, and was suddenly Niftar. Rav Shteinman had never been informed of the bad news but literally moments after her petira his conditioned worsened and rapidly turned critical. His condition continued to deteriorate for 12 hours, but miraculously stabilized.

What does it say?
Quote
I ask that there are no hespedim, not before me or any atzeres or gathering of any kind.
No major writeups in newspapers not daily weekly or others. My photo is sufficient and not writing as is customary for others. Ten persons at the levaya is sufficient.
Do not print pashkavilim, dont make announcements via loudspeakers or radio.
Make an effort to bury me quickly and prevent delay between my petira and kvura.
Do not write any titles on the tombstone other than פה נקבר רב אהרון יהודא לייב בן רב נח צבי שטיינמן
My burial place should be the simplest, least expensive. Do not waste money on a burial site.
As the minhag is to visit the kever at the end of shiva and shloshim, not to waste more than necessary for it is better giving money for limud and for certain, not on devarim beteilim.
If seeking a place to daven before the amud results in too much time, it is preferred to engage in limud torah lshem shomayim.
Anyone seeking to assist me (it is for us in essence), lean a chapter of mishnayos daily until the end of the 12 months. Women can recite 10 chapters of Tehillim daily, including Shabbos and Yomtov.
I request not to remember (Refer) to me as a tzaddik or a Yirei Shomayim so I am not insulted in the Olam HaEmmes.
I ask mechila if I offended anyone and if there is anyone I owe money to, and in reality, he will not collect even though he has the right al pi din, please be moichel me.
My children should not follow the aron for kvura as is minhag Yerushalayim.
Do not name children after me but do not prevent it either
If you wish, give money to tzedaka instead of a tombstone, to give but not to buy.
(Last addition) Since many err, I am advising not to name children after me but I do not forbid it.

There's a slight mistransalation in the last item of the tzavaah, in Hebrew it says "הרבה טועים בי" which means many err in me, meaning they think I'm a Tzadik, and am worthy of being named after.

Many people misunderstand this, I also did till I found out the context. The guy pressing him was playing devil's advocate in order to get a good reaction for the camera. He was very close to Rav Aharon Leib, he founded tens of Kollelim, he's a big personality, and was "raitzing un the matzav"

Spoken like a true child. Thats normal? Play a Gadol Hador for the cameras? Playing devil's advocate is how we end up with piskei halacha in the name of gedolim that were never their intentions. This video if taken out of context can be seen for the and of the following and more:
1. The Rosh Yeshiva called someone a meshugener.
2. The Rosh Yeshiva called a certain yeshiva communist.
3. The Rosh Yeshiva told someone to send kids to the moon.

I mean come on. There is so much wrong with this. It is a good window into seeing how people can drive gedolei yisroel crazy with hypotheticals and "what ifs" to get the result they seek. in this case baby shtick of "raitzing un the matzav"...

Maybe straighten out those earmuffs and have your hearing checked.

Now for the response:

I wan't defending the totality of the questioners actions, I was just saying that he himself didn't believe what he was saying, Rav Aharon Leib knew that (he knew him very well), and therefore wasn't screaming at him, but at the people that sent him to ask the question.

I was just clarifying that point.

Is he right for every other part of what he did, I think you make a great case about that.

I understood it this way too after noticing that Sorotzkin was motioning to the camera to come closer after HaRav Shteinman Zatzal was getting into it. It appears that Sorotizkin wanted to get this statement from him and publicize this, that selectiveness is terrible and stems from things totally antithesis to Kedusha.

R Shteinman famously once asked this person being videoed how much of what he did was lishmah and how much was shelo lishmah. The person (R' Sholom Ber Sorotzkin, although if you didn't know that then you shouldn't be commenting on this video) answered 90% shelo lishmah, 10% lishmah. R' Shteinman said "It's a pity it's not 100% shelo lishmah, or we'd have another 10 kollelim".

possibly under 6 hours is the 'default' for asap?

This seems to be in place in some Israeli restaurants, busses, airports, and hotels. Plus it's the length of time after meat until dairy. So maybe it's an asap measurement, i.e. k'Zayis, revi'is, etc..

He accomplished unbelievable things despite devastating disability, a trait to be admired.

But that aside, what are the criteria for mention in this thread? A man, created in the image of G-d (that he did not believe in IINM,) left this world for the eternal one.  Do his life and accomplishments not warrant acknowledgment?  Does his family not deserve our compassion?

He went to great lengths to justify the denial of G-ds existence, with unprovable theories about the universe before the Big Bang that themselves required faith...

He was born into a society that accepts those unproven and unprovable theories as fact.  Many of our brethren with extensive Torah education are also starstruck by "scientific consensus."  Now he knows the truth.

He was a human being and deserving of our compassion. But he made it onto this thread because he was famous, not because he was human, and (much of) what he was famous for is not good stuff. The fact that there are people in this forum who may look up to him (not for his overcoming struggle in life but for the agenda that he spent his life pushing) is precisely why I felt the need to speak up.

Hope this all makes sense.

So we agree. That's why I called you out. I hate friendly fire.

Anyway, thanks for setting it straight. You're a good man.

Bottom line: Hawking stood for bad stuff. It needs to be remembered right now while the larger world is singing his praises as if he were some kind of secular saint.

Hugh Hefner
Would love to hear your thoughts on this one.
Title: Re: RIP/BDE Master Thread
Post by: Freddie on March 14, 2018, 01:43:44 PM
Hugh Hefner? You mean how did I let @ChaimMoskowitz slip that one by me?

Well, I guess I could just say that I failed to catch it. (I do have another job aside from monitoring DDF.)

However, I think the better answer would be that I don't think that anyone here is going to be misled and think that because @ChaimMoskowitz posted Hugh Hefner to the RIP/BDE thread that he was an okay person. Everyone knows he was a lowlife scumbag who contributed to the moral decay of society. Heck, even the mainstream media didn't try to eulogize him. Everyone knew what he was (aside for a few perverts and contrarians.)

But when stam a forum-member (sorry, can't remember who was OP on this one) posts Stephen Hawking, and the whole world is busy singing his praises, I guess I feel the need to speak up and say that we should remember that this was not a person worthy of tribute at all.

They are all Rabbonim already.
He has 14 children, 8 sons and 6 daughters. His sons serve as Rabbonim in Vishnitzer Batei Midrashim around the world. His oldest son, HaRav Pinches Shulem ZATZAL, served the Kehilla in Borough Park, Brooklyn, New York; Rav Yisroel is the Rov in Monsey, New York; Rav Mendel is the Rov in Kiamesha Lake, New York; Rav Yitzchok Yochonon is the Rov in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The other sons serve internationally: Rav Eliezer in Yerushalayim, Rav Aron in Montreal, Canada; Rav Duvid in London, UK; and his youngest son, Rav Buroch Shamshon, in Beit Shemesh.

A will can clarify regarding property, foresight in discussions between a father and his children including public statements during his lifetime, while not foolproof, can avoid machlokes afterwards as well. There is a reason why Dovid Hamelech passed on the throne to Shlomo very publicly in his lifetime at the advice of a navi. While I used the term estate planning, I was referring to all this. Hopefully the Vizhnitzer Rebbe ZTL was able to have this resolved in a way which avoids machlokes and can be used as an example for others.

This is true for everyone.  Most people on DDF are young, so you've probably not thought of estate planning.  But you should have life insurance, and a plan for the care and upbringing of your children, CV"S.  Talk to the substitute guardians and your parents, so no one is shocked and upset that they weren't chosen.
For those with grown children, letting them know the disposition of your assets will give them the chance to come to terms with anything in the will they don't like.  If you're not man enough to face them when you're alive, do you really want to leave things like that when you're dead?

+100000000.......

Way too many families have been ripped apart by arguments over inheritance.
Fights happen even when inheritance is modest. The more assets are involved, the more potential for fights.

Even very smart business people find it hard to deal with this, or just procrastinate. The situation is worse if there's a family business and some of the kids are involved. There are many potential solutions that can keep everyone happy, but step number one is to acknowledge that a huge problem potentially exists, and having the urgency to deal with it.

One of the most heartbreaking stories I am aware of is of a person I knew who dies suddenly and unexpectedly in his 70s. He went to a Madison Avenue law firm to draft his will, but when every minute with the attorney (who is in no rush to let you go, because the attorney wants to do a proper job, which requires a lot of probing) costs you $10 (and additional billing by the attorney to draft documents when you're not sitting in front of him), many people will eventually cut corners. In this specific case AFAIK the family is still fighting, and the value of the estate has suffered.

Another thing to be very careful. You can go to a top attorney and have everything drafted according to "law" perfectly. However if this isn't done properly according to Din Torah, they will end up in Beth din.
Not only that but in many circumstances the legal will does not carry any weight Al pi torah and Beth don't will have to go Al pi torah totally ignoring the will.

That's a totally different issue. I've read many different opinions about how Beis Din looks at legal wills (which is far from simple). Regardless of whether there's a din torah or not, it is highly advisable to have everything reviewed by a Halachic Authority that specializes in these matters and is fully aware of the local laws, or else there's a risk of violating torah law in the distribution of assets. I've heard of someone who's siblings insisted on dividing assets based on civil law (in Israel) even though they were halachically not entitled to anything. I guess he was מוחל after the fact, but does that make it right? Properly drafted halachic (such as שטר חצי זכר for example) could have avoided such issues.

At least anecdotally it would seem that the average black male is being failed abysmally by the current system. Many are barely literate, lack even basic skills, and are de facto consigned to a life of public assistance/ and or crime. If would seem that prior to 1953 they were more productive, and less apt to enter the vicious cycle of crime and incarceration. Thee is no question that minorities were mistreated in many ways, but its likely that the liberal policys of the last half century have unwittingly harmed the African American community perhaps as badly or worse that the treatment they suffered under segregation....

Browns most profound irony may be that answers to closing the achievement gap lie buried in the history of the schools that Browns implementation destroyed. What are the answers? Dedicated teachers. Strong principals. Order. Discipline. High expectations. Community and parental support. It is astonishing how many Black children attended schools during segregation that delivered on these objectives, and how few do so now.

But that's the problem with public schools and society as a whole, it has nothing to do with being black, just that there may be less dedicated teachers in predominantly black neighborhoods for whatever reason?

No, it has to do with the closing of black schools due to desegregation , and the fact that blacks are now overwhelmingly taught by white teachers who dont relate to them and have changed the whole dynamic of black education. Its not PC, and liberals will say its all worth it to fight the scourge of racism ( the same way theyll throw $25,000 at a failing public school but wont even consider  a charter school system despite a successful track record) but its the truth. To quote the above articles:

This lack of black educators has meant that black students are less valued in general. White teachers, typically women, who are educated in white neighborhoods and white universities, make up the majority of educators in minority classrooms. Many are fantastic, quality teachers and a gift to all students. But many are ill-equipped to meet the educational needs of black students. And studies indicate that they treat black children differently.

A 2012 study from the American Sociological Association found, Substantial scholarly evidence indicates that teachersespecially white teachersevaluate black students behavior and academic potential more negatively than those of white students. Another longitudinal study shows that teacher expectations account for 42 percent of the difference between white and African-American students realization of their potential.

As Black children were put into an environment perceived as controlled by whites, the phenomenon of young Black kids equating academic excellence with acting white arose. In the Black schools, Black students largely cheered their classmates for achievements. But after desegregation created a clear division of white and Black, the association shifted and Black students began to tease one another by pushing their smart peers into the white category. Ever since then, we have seen that Black kids tended to perform more poorly when mixed with whites.

And of course, the education system directly relates to poverty, crime, public assistance, etc. When I see the way the average urban black male is trapped in a desperate existence with no future, a shortened life expectancy due to violence and substance abuse, a father figure that is usually MIA, or at least incarcerated, and a PC public policy and public assistance system that enables and perpetuates this hell on earth, its clear that despite ostensibly good intentions, these activists and policy makers are guilty of gross abuse, or at the very least, wanton neglect of a whole class of people who deserve much better.....

50 years ago today we lost the greatest civil rights leader we have ever seen.

Martin Luther King Jr.

Known best for his advancement of civil rights with non-violent civil disobedience movement, Martin Luther King, Jr. was an African-American clergyman at Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama. His way as the most famous civil rights movement activist started with the Montgomery Bus Boycott. In his career he delivered powerful speeches promoting desegregation and peace. Kings most famous speech is I have a Dream delivered during the March on Washington. Martin Luther King Jr. won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1968.

We should stop reporting on them. Glorifying suiciders. He's probably a copycat from the one earlier in the week. He saw all the raving press about her.

Just like we should ignore the attention that mentally ill school shooters seek.

Disagree.

Suicide awareness is very important.

Someone put it well in regards to this story:

"Depression and anxiety is real. It doesnt matter how much money and fame you have.  If you know of someone who needs help reach out to them

So often we talk about how we are there for others. The greatest lesson we can take away is that compassion should be blind. There should be no self interest in who you reach out to. There are many in our community who need help and this is a good reminder to always reach out and take the extra step. You never know what people are going through."

(As for sharing the name/pic of school shooters, I agree, it should be stopped.)

You can also not report on the identity and make it a point that although everyone knows who it is, they shouldn't be talked about in the articles. The message can come across without all the raving coverage Spade got and Bourdain is getting now.

So suicide should also kill a persons legacy as well?

Sounds a bit crazy. It's not like their legacy is that they shot up a school, or even that they killed themselves. When someone dies, however they die, I think they deserve to have their accomplishments celebrated. It'd be pretty low to try and take that away IMO.

If the OP had said we should change the coverage of suicide to help prevent more, by giving people more reason to live, I agree.

But the fact that awareness is important isn't being disputed in that article or that tweet. Just google it and you'll find many articles explaining why it's important.

It seems the person in that tweet didn't commit suicide, maybe hearing about it and dealing with those problems she had for 10 months actually made her stronger and less likely to commit suicide.

Totally uncalled for!!!
I understand there is a time and place for everything, but when it comes to suicide prevention, I think pretty much anywhere anytime is good.

Are you a professional political pundit? I can't think of a reason why trying to set boundaries in a specific discussion group and keeping things on topic means that I (or anyone else) want suicides to continue.

In fact, since you are an admin I will ask you this question -- if I posted in a major price mistake by Delta in which you could get a R/T to LA for 92 cents, but I put it in the Amazon group, would you replicate it in the correct thread and still leave it in the Amazon thread to make sure that everyone saw it?

Yes you may, as would I. But when you see someone nodding at you from a distance, not seeing their full face, and while you're rushing to reach someone while being awed by the size of the crowd, the mistake was made, but was immediately realized as a mistake, though wasn't sure who it was at that moment.

chicago's gun violence is terrible. In regard to Eliyahu Moscowitz, there are memorial pages at Jewel in Evanston where he worked for people to write their comments and positive memories as a collection for his family.
There will also be a memorial gathering this Thursday with some featured speakers including Rabbi YY Jacobson:

its a tricky street bc although not quite a full fledged highway, the cars do go highway speed, and yet its in between far rockaway and Lawrence where plenty of ppl walk across daily.

I understand that's not what you meant, but it may come across a bit harsh. Any death should really be a reminder to us all, that our lives don't last forever. We hope to live to a ripe old age but it obviously beyond our control. Make the most of it in every sense. Regardless of the situation here, or the above that Dan mentioned, it's probably a good idea to be as safe as possible when walking. Not going to end it all, but definitely have to do our part. Tragic losses.

Did you ever sit in a daf yomi shiur where the maggid shiur is reading from the gemara and he says R' Yochanan instead of R' Yonasan? Everyone is following along and knows that he meant to say R' Yonasan, but some guy has to correct him and make him repeat it anyway, as if this was krias haTorah where every word is m'akiev (even though names sometimes are not, but I digress).

This is like that 10x over.

No one really believed that the person who posted about the death of his best friend was saying that his best friend's mother was 32 years old.

Even if she had a kid when she was 18, that would make his best friend 14...and no one would think that was the case.

Time and again people are picking at other people's posts when there is no reason to do so...much the like maggid shiur who get corrected when he accidentally reads the wrong word when reading from the gemara.

I usually keep my mouth shut, even when I hear the same guy time and again correct the maggid shiur.

But here the video from Simi talking about the tragic death of her husband and the comment to the video by the woman who is clearly in pain about her son suffering from the same death and when the poster states that this woman is talking about his best friend...unless there really was a hav'amena that the mother was 32 there is just no reason to make the correction.

Rant over.

Ahem...

Do you realize that right now, you might be sounding like the one that keeps on correcting?

I would guess that most people read the post as it was written, saying that the mother is 32 years old. Thinking that maybe the poster is a teenager, or that there was some kind of typo, and moved on. One DDFer pointed out how the post actually reads, which allowed the poster to correct it, but you seem to get ballistic and hung up on this.

במהלך מסע ההלוויה בבני ברק, הכריז ראש עיריית בני ברק, אברהם רובינשטיין, על המינויים החדשים ברבנות בני ברק: "על דעת גדולי התורה, אדמו"רים, ראשי הישיבות ורבני העיר, הוחלט כי כל ענייני הדת והכשרות בעיר יתנהלו על ידי הרבנים הגאונים, בנו ממלא מקומו על פי בקשתו הרב חיים יצחק אייזיק לנדא שליט"א והרב שבח צבי רוזנבלט שליט"א, בשיתוף פעולה מלא, והאמת והשלום אהבו"

Let's hope that a dual appointment by agreement will enhance Sholom and Achdus.

Was a huge gadal, big talmud chachum, thousands of people went to him for brochos and aitzos throughout his life..
  As the years go we keep on loosing another Adam gadol...

Nothing to do with population....

Just going to add my 2 cents here, Skulen Rebbe was an erliche yid, just what his cronies made f him the last few year is pathetic, I still remember passing by in the afternoon years ago being asked to come in for minyan.

now this street closure is super crazy, crazy will be an understatement. Millions of people are not coming, and this is not Bnei Brak and most people work for a living and most won't be able to take the day off. Given that it's a cit where people live and work, I just got a call from my son's school that big chance there will be no pickup in the morning and "everyone should find their own means to get the kids to school". The radius that the streets are being closed also doesn't make scene, Skulen is by 13*54 so why is 60&61 Street being closed? I work there and it's gridlock everyday from local businesses that will struggle tomorrow with their clients why is it closed till 16th Avenue? thank god they aren't closing down 13th Avenue.
Same reason why by Yanky Mayer's flagship tehillim event in Bobov shul every year the surrounding streets gets closed for no normal reason.

They're expecting 2 speakers in BoroPark.


Part of the reason for so much 'no parking' is to give the crowds where to stand and also, the buses will need a place to park.


And that is part of where the crowds will come from.  Buses from yeshivas and other neighborhoods.

Problem was that after being so careful the entire time to keep everyone off the street & 14th ave, for some odd reason when it was really needed cleared they let everyone onto the streets. The cops just quietly moved away & let everyone crowd the streets. Its possible they got faulty info that the hearse went a different direction last minute.

The original plan that was published, was that the procession would turn down 58 st. But the van kept going along 14 Ave.  That's where the accident happened and maybe that's why.  The van stopped for a bit, then continued and turned the other way at 60th street. ( up to 13 Ave)

They opened 14th ave before the aron ever left the shul. One minute they were still yelling at everyone to stay off the streets & the next minute they just walked away. By the time the aron came to 14th there was nowhere to move. It took half hour just to get to 14th

Zachary Baumel Z"L 37 years late.

About 25 years ago, I met his parents at an event to get college students to campaign for his and other Israeli POWs release. Sadly his father was niftar 10 years ago, without having the closure of burying his son. May both of them rest in peace.

There were 6 of us, we learned at the kerestier shtiebel, we we're known as the cheder.

I grew up watching and talking to many of the admorim of the last generation.

I was a chabad kid, I didn't understand who Reb shlomole of bobov was or the beirach Moshe of satmar.

But the survivers burned in me a fire of yiras shamayim, hisbonenus and devaykus!

There was a man we called the kavana man, he would daven untill noon,he'd shukle and shake and throw his hands in the air. His story? He was in the gas Chambers, he davend "God, save me" And at the last minute a German officer came and said he needed 50 workers and this man prayed every day as if it were his last.

I remember lipshitz from Chicago, he survived Treblinka, he told me how one Chanukah in the Warsaw ghetto his brother wanted to go to the mikva. They snuck out and found a lake, they had to break the ice. I don't recall what happened to the brother.

But one yid made the most impact on my life, one day we were playing outside and it was hot. I went in to get a cup of water and then I went into the shul to see what was up.

There was a bentch by the mizrach wall, it was in between the shtenders of the rebbe Reb shlomole of bobov and one by the wall to the left that Reb shamshon and other characters used.

And that day, seated on this bentch was a man in chasidishe rebbishe malbush. His face was red, in a stare of incredible devaykus, kipnei malach hashem.

His payos long and wet, seemingly from having just gone to the mikva.

Yet here was a man who was clean shaven. I said to rabbi grosz, how can there be a rebbe who is shaved. He told me this is the holy kaliver and told me his story.

If I'm yarei shamayim today, even the slightest. It's because I looked at the holy kaliver and saw what mangle yimach shemo did to him.. and saw his yiras hashem and truly Reb yollish was right...

Over the years I wanted to visit the kaliver and tell him the impact he had on me.. but I was scared..

Years ago I used to go to Israel for yom Kippur and sukkos and we davened in his shul.

And his emphasis in the Shma after he went through what he did was also amazing.  Sad to see all these older generation holocaust survivors go...

Yup, it's really sad to see them die out. I chrish the memory of shaleshudos tishim with rabb grosz and Reb shlomole and the beirach Moshe and when the survivers sang "gam ki eiliach b"gai tzalmuves" you could really feel their fearless walking in hell.

I've had 29 surgeries, but in my head I hear them sing "ki ata hashem imudi"

How they retained their faith after everything?!? How they rebuilt their lives with emuna and simcha?!?

He was present at the rebbe rayatz tahara. But he told me that the building was stolen from them.

This. When I was little we used to go to my grandparents for shabbos and davened in Laundau's, as I got older and went less often I would notice that every time I went a few more of my grandfathers friend's were no longer there. At this point IDK if there are any left :'(
I don't remember the old Rabbi Landau, but I remember that the Ruv's seat was empty for a bunch of years when he wasn't well (the son of the original Ruv) until he passed away and his son (the grandson of the original Ruv) took over, it was weird to me to see someone sitting in the Ruv's seat that was empty for as long as I was able to remember.

As a Bochur he was sent on a shlichus mission of sorts behind the Iron curtain. He was a brilliant man with a photographic memory. I was a student of his in High School, and had the opportunities to hear some stories of his exploits in Russia first hand.

Sure, shoot the messenger.

If the parents phone/shoe/purse was on the child there is a chance the child might be alive.

Its unfortunate and tragic that people forget their child in the car and it reflects very poorly on our culture. However in most cases the parent was distracted/under other pressures and leaves the car without the child. You can leave a car without a child and not be physically hindered, its tough to walk out of the car without your shoe.

Your a saint. Most of us are human.  Its been over a decade, but I can think of at least a couple of times it almost happened to us. I dont remember the exact circumstances but I seem to remember there were a dozen things going on- doctors visit, another kid missed the bus, other parent had a change in schedule etc., Im the slightly paranoid type who checks three times anyway, but I honestly thought I was just going through the motions and had already dropped the kid off when I checked. Yes a shoe in the backseat would make the difference.

Then there was the time I pulled into a spot at the local park and started putting up the car windows and my 4 year old decided to stick her head out the window at that second. I happened to see her and stopped with the window just barely resting on her neck. I shudder to think what could have happened in another couple of seconds. And we are attentive, conscientious parents.We can try our best but we are not always in control. Sometimes God has other plans.

Someone who lost a child who was forgotten in a car recently made a wedding for the next sibling. I am sure they are still suffering. All we can do is feel for this poor family, not point fingers.

I was not judging the parents. They have to live with themselves and I dont envy them.

I am astonished at the suggestions to help someone remember they have a kid in the back. Change of schedule or routine is whats used as the reason in most cases. I just dont understand that. There is routine and sometimes things change. Kids die because of that? Just cant make that leap in my mind. Thank you for bestowing sainthood on someone who can just adjust to changes in "routine". What I think im seeing is failure in critical thinking skills translate into not being able to adjust to simple change in routine.

We are not discussing where a parent runs out to get some groceries and leaves the child in the car "for a minute". That would be pure negligence and would warrant some of the over the top comments here.

Usually these stories happen when someone's routine is changed and they're not supposed to have the kid with them at that point.

...in most cases the parent was distracted/under other pressures and leaves the car without the child.[/b]

Usually the change in routine where father takes the child to playgroup instead of the mother, father gets distracted from work/personal issue, child falls asleep, father doesn't remember that the child is there and ends up driving to work instead of playgroup...I've read a lot of stories about this, it can and literally does happen to to the most loving parents. We are all familiar with the "Don't leave your kids in the car" warnings, but those warnings only help for people that are aware that their kids are in the car. When they're not in your car 364 days a year, and they fall asleep, its very easy to fall back on routine.

Heck, a couple weeks ago I was dropping off 2 kids instead of 1, I drove past the playgroup because I was so used to only dropping off the other child. Obviously nothing happened, but it goes to show, we think we know everything and this can never happen to me and I'll never forget that my child is in the car, but the truth is some people have to get off their high horse and accept that it is completely human to forget and this is an unfortunate accident.
