Re: COVID-19 (Wuhan Novel Coronavirus) Pandemic
I can't talk about that, but if my family all had the virus and recovered, and my BIL's family all had it (mostly worse than my family, and actually confirmed by tests) and recovered, would it be wrong to get the families together to celebrate my grandson's Upsherenish?
I think  many people have the same thought process.

Re: Maimonidies
I don't understand why the people of Boro Park think they're special and entitled to have visitors in the hospital right now, to the extent that theyre fighting with the administration and even sneaking in right now against guidance. I went through the Top 10 Hospitals on USNews, and NOT A SINGLE ONE is allowing visitors right now.

These guidelines, while difficult for patients and families, are in place for everyones protection. By going and sneaking in, as alleged above, you are risking cross contaminating and infecting non-covid patients that are currently in the hospital, hospital employees, and your community when you leave.
This has nothing to do with entitlement. This has to do with ensuring that your loved ones are safe. You want to believe that what's going on in the Cleveland Clinic is the same as Maimonides? A mediocre hospital during the best of times is falling apart right now. Patients' families are allowed to ensure they are getting some care. Someone I know refused to go to a local hospital because when he was there last week they did nothing for him. Was convinced to go to a different hospital because he had double pneumonia. Yes, there is triage situation, but some hospitals are worse than others.

Re: Maimonidies
This is what your armchair quarterbacking from the comforts of the home of your 'long term boro park family'

This is the mess you want to send extra visitors into, to act as roving fomites and spread infection.  👏
You are making blanket assumptions here. I never said it's not a mess. I never said put people all over. But you are saying these things are not happening. You do not know what is going on in every unit. I know they are dealing with chaos. That doesn't remove the need for some oversight here. You can continue to ignore it, if you want.

Re: מי כעמך ישראל - Post your stories here Personal sacrifices. From a sheitel macher.

I am doing it for my family
I am doing for my entire family
My dearest Jews all over the world .
I dont want to sit anymore and hope that some jew somewhere will bring the karban we all need so badly !!!!
Instagram is my business space
It has brought me hundreds of clients
And tons of free pr
But isnt it Hashem who gives us the parnassa
Why would I think its been my work
My Instagram -gorgeous page . Its HASHEM
The same HASHEM that took away all my business from this week and possibly next
Thousands of dollars owed to me
From clients who cant get their wigs
I owe thousands to vendors
And its sitting mid air
But hey I have the best marketing skills
I have an attractive Instagram page
With zero work to show for myself

Rabbanim ask us to sit at home and think about where this corona virus has hit us
In my own home I have a lot to work on
And Im my other home my work -this is where I shall start .
Throwing away the Instagram famous page of xxxxxxxxxn
And giving it up as a Karban to Hashem
And at this moment I am bawling my eyes out davening
That Maybe because this is the most heart wrenching gut wrenching thing for me to do that this karban is big enough to take away this virus from klall yisroel
And bring Mashiach right away !!!!
Heal those who are sick !!
Bentch those who need parnassa !!!!
Give shalom bayis to each and every home !!!
Give children to parents who are begging !!!, parents should have pure nachas from their children always ! !!!

My plea is I beg HASHEM to continue to make me succesful , to continue to have people trust me although they dont see it on Instagram .
I want customers who are loyal , customers who appreciate me . And not the hype. I hope and i am sure Hashem can do that all , because He has been all this time .

I think she's a tzadekes. I am in awe of her courage and I believe there are thousands like her who are trying to do cheshbon hanefesh. Like Hillel, she obligates us all.

Re: מי כעמך ישראל - Post your stories here Isn't this the positive thread? Sorry I even posted. Rabbi Wallerstein related a very scary story about bashing Jews. G-d does not want to hear people criticizing His children. He knows good and well what's going on.

Rabbi Motti Katz was not his brother.
His brother is Rabbi Mutty Katz from JEP.

Re: Government Seizing Property During Covid-19
No one is denying they can take the property but the way it's supposed to work, is by calling the individual asking to purchase it and if there is no agreement they can seize the property. 

I don't think it makes sense to just show up with a few tractor trailers with dozens of FBI agents,

They can always place a unmarked car outside the location where its being held and see if its leaving.
Exactly. Why wouldn't the Office of Emergency  Management  just make a phone call instead of 40 agents with guns etc? I'm beginning to think those who are calling this a police state are right. These guys are getting a thrill throwing their weight around.

Re: Corona virus and your shul
I always wondered why Jews were blamed for the black death.
Always assumed regular anti-semitism, but it makes a little more sense now :(

There's still plenty of anti-semitism, but we need to do better.
There was no medical knowledge of disease transmission then. Outsiders, including Jews, were always blamed for poisoning the waters or cursing them. it was anti-Semitism and nothing more. Actually, Jews were perceived as suffering less from the the plague; due to certain halachos that kept Jewish quarters free of waste and dead bodies. It was a perception that may or may not be true, but the facts are that Jews did bathe, wash hands and bury the dead differently than the rest of Europe at the time. Please rethink your comment.
