Re: Corona virus and your shul
Itís not really gleeful, just an observation of the strange dichotomy. Itís not like one doesnít see masks in the grocery. one of the shuls even has a couple of masks on a table in the hall, but they are so completely absent that if one of the hundreds of mispalelim were to wear a mask during davening it would almost be like a frum soldier in shul with his gun in the US- just really unexpected.

Then on reads the guidelines from Bergen County and itís so different is like another planet. I donít think it has anything to do with glee.
You're not one of the people I had in mind.

Re: Jewish Music (New CDs, hock, and opinions)
There is a beautiful song Malachei Rachamim from the HU LEVADO album sung by MBD.
Does anyone know who composed it, or if it originally appeared on a different album?
IIRC Moishy Roth composed it. I don't think it's been recorded anywhere prior.

Re: Corona virus and your shul
Yes, this morning, that's my problem/ question??
It's crazy how boro park and Flatbush which are mere miles apart, are now world's apart, and even in shul, everyone's distancing and masks!! But in bp is like a reg day pre Corona, bh!!!
Can you explain your apparent glee?

Re: Corona virus and your shul
When the "experts" reasoning is shown to be made up, why would people follow the "experts" made up reasoning over their own?
You're conflating politicians with scientists. The medical experts didn't "make up" their reasoning, it was based on history and studies with other infectious diseases; the entire time they were saying, explicitly and implicitly - "we don't know, but based on what we do know about other viruses we should be doing XYZ".

(And the jury is still out on whether the medical experts got it wrong.)

Re: Is there any good news in the fight against COVID-19?
The good news: doctors offices are empty in Lakewood. Apparently social distancing does work, at least when it comes to strep, ear infections, conjunctivitis etc. The bad news: doctors are starting to lay off staff.
Oh is that why certain doctor(s) are strongly advocating reopening schools etc, and to minimize SD (only needed for >60 years old)?

(This is tongue in cheek, mostly.)

Re: Corona virus and your shul
Here is what they do "know":

1. The medical community at large doesn't really know much about this virus. It has a ton of unanswered and unexplained questions and phenomena related to it. That same community initially made fatal mistakes in treating covid-19 patients.

2. A huge percentage of their community was exposed to the virus. Tests are only partially reliable. It clearly seems that those that got it aren't getting sick a second time (at least this season), and for most people contracting the virus isn't fatal.

3. They see facts and outcomes. Whether the "scientific medical community" agrees with premises underlying those treatments or not, they trust their senses. That is why those same communities will trust and embrace alternative treatments for a variety of issues, even if practitioners won't present establishment accepted credentials.
And why there are so many anti-vaxxers in the community.

Re: Is there a second wave?
Yup exactly right. As I wrote few weeks ago, some ppl here would love to see a second wave. I donít know why.
Do you say the same thing to a parent who makes their child wear a bike helmet? "He just would love to see his kid get hit by a car and fall on his unhelmeted head."

Re: COVID-19 (Wuhan Novel Coronavirus) Pandemic Master Thread
Hospitalization, but not deaths.  They're more likely to withstand the ravages of the disease.

The experience in Maimonides was that younger victims were likely to be obese and/or have high A1Cs. That's often not mentioned, so they're referred to as not having comorbidities.
This is way more prevalent than you may assume amongst younger folks in our community.

Re: yeshivas that are open @S209 give it up, it's too subtle; grammar isn't really a strong suit around these parts.
