Re: COVID-19 (Wuhan Novel Coronavirus) Pandemic Master Thread Killing people is not political incorrectness
what do the chinese people expect? that the government let it spread even more? its a difficult situation but if it would be in the U.S. wouldn't it spread faster because of political correctness?

im trying to think what, if anything, makes sense in this situation ???

Re: Will the truth come out how this administration made blunder after blunder? Wait, is anyone of the position here that the federal government did not botch up the response to the emergence of Covid-19? If even we DDFers were apprehensive about it in early January and @yuneeq had sounded the alarms and put together a response plan, why didn't the federal government which is tasked with safeguarding its citizens do even the basics to keep this virus out of our borders and contained? Nevermind, that they botched up even later when it was apparent to all already the grave dangers that the virus posed.

Re: Corona virus and your shull Just want to point out before I jump out of this thread, that not everyone who calls himself a Rav is indeed a Rav, and that it doesn't work like diplomatic immunity where you are immune to prosecution.

Pick up the phone. Call your friends who might be joining such minyanim. Speak to your local Rav. Have him publicly speak out against such minyanim. Etc. Use all resources available to you to save a life.

Re: Corona virus and your shull
putting myself aside.
People in the community do not use these services. Fact.
so they are anyway in the street. fact.
so if they make a minyan, its just the 1 time in the day, they do something justifiable.
It's not justifiable. They are not doing a mitzva period. They are just doing it because that's what they're used to. If they thought into it, they would never do it, because it's not a mitzvah.

Re: Corona virus and your shull מכתב מאת הדומ"ץ הגאון רבי אשר ישעיה זלפריינד שליט"א:

 *בעניין תפילה בימי הקורונה ה"י*
אור ליום שלישי פרשת צו אור לו ניסן תש"פ


במענה לשאלת רבים 


בענין השאלה האם לארגן מניינים בהתר בגניבה על הגגות ובחדרי המדרגות ובכל מקום היכול להביא לאינטרקציה וקירבה פיזית בין אנשים אפי ביותר משני מטר.

עד כמה שידוע לי מהמציאות כעת נראה לענ"ד דיש להיזהר ולהישמר בכל היכולת שלא לפגוש אנשים גם לא במרחק שני מטר. והמזלזל בכך קרוב להיות שופך דמים ח"ו בשוגג הקרוב למזיד ודמו ודם חביריו תלויים בראש המזלזל ומיקיל בזה השם ישמרינו.


זכינו למצוה נדירה של פעם בכמאה שנים

מצוות הצלת נפשות כפשוטה ע"י כולנו לא רק חברי הצלה לא רק מנתחי לב

והוא סגולה הכי גדולה לקבלת התפילות

כל השומר את עצמו מלצאת מחוץ לבית שלא לצורך חיוני כקניית מצרכים ופרנסה הרי הוא עסוק בהצלת נפשות בפועל ממש וזכותו גדולה עד אין לשער.


יש בתפילה בציבור ב' חלקים

א. מצוה. וכעת המצוה להתפלל ביחידות.

ב. סגולה. וכעת הסגולה הכי גדולה נרכשת על ידי שמירה מלהיות בגדר רוצח [וכמעט שאפשר לומר בצחות אפרומער חסידישער רוצ... רח"ל] ח"ו.

וע"י הלב נשבר שיש לכולנו בבחינה מסוימת מהמצב.


 כל השומע לענ"ד ירחק נפשו בימים אלו מתפילה בציבור אפי בשטח פתוח.


 זה בלתי אפשרי שלא להתקרב זה לזה. 

ועל פי חכמת המתמטיקה והסטיסטיקה כל פגישה בודדת כהיום שוות ערך לפגישה עם יותר ממאות אנשים לפני שבועיים.


בימים אלו מתחילים לראות את זרעי המוות והפורענות שנזרעו בפגישות זה עם זה לפני כשבועיים אמנם בעיקר בחו"ל אבל זה בדרך לכאן על כל שונאי ישראל והלוואי והשיי"ת יחוס וירחם עלינו שאתבדה.


התורה מעידה עלינו רק עם חכם ונבון וגו' ואיזהו חכם הרואה את הנולד. 


התפילה ביחידות בימים אלו אינו קולא אלא חומרא. ולא חומרא להידור אלא חומרא וחובה מעיקר הדין. בשביל להינצל מאיסור רציחה הקרוב למזיד ח"ו.


כל המתפלל ביחידות בבית יקבל על זה שכר השמור למציל נפש אחת ונפשות רבות מאד מישראל. 


כאשר יתחילו רח"ל ההלויות של [ששהשיי"ת שלא יהיו כי אם רק אצל שונאי ישראל ח"ו] כל שונאי ישראל רח"ל כבר יהיה מאוחר מדאי


עלינו לתפוס את עצמינו כעת לפני שיופיעו אצל שונאי ישראל התמונות בהמודיע שרואים כעת מאחינו בבורו פארק ויליאמסבורג ומונסי ולייקווד וקראן הייטס וכו' עם הזקנים הלבנים המשובצים בזקנים שחורים.

כעת מוטל עלינו לזכור איך שהם הם המזכירים לנו את דברי יהודי אונגרין בשלוותם היחסית כאשר הגיעו איליהם פליטי  פולין וגאליציה היו לא תהיה.


כמובן שלא מדובר במספרים כ"כ גדולים ואין ליכנס לפאניקה מוגזמת אבל בכל זאת מדובר בחיים של שלנו ושל חברינו לאורך ימים ושנים טובות ונעימות.


וכל המשים אל ליבו כעת להישמר ולראות את [שאינו רוצה שיהיה] הנולד הוא זה שיוכל לומר בעז"ה ידינו לא שפכו את הדם וגו' ומכלל הן וכו' ומידה טובה מרובה. 


דעה זו היא דעת רבים המתריעים על כך מזה כמה שבועות. ולדעתם של רבים אלו ברור שכל או כמעט כל האומרים ומפרסמים דיעה שונה הרי זה משום שלא הביאו להם את כל נתוני האמת בדבר סכנה זו.

אלא שעד עתה היתה דעתם של המתריעים כקול קורא במדבר. 


אולי יש שמסתכלים עליהם בענין זה כתמהוניים והזויים וזה מרתיע ולא נעים לדבר באופן כל כך חריף אבל אני הקטן כשלעצמי אינני יכול לטמון את ראשי בחול.

 הסכנה ברורה!

 הכתובת רשומה על הקיר !

 והמצב ש[לא]יהיה כאן בעוד שבועיים פלוס ג"כ ברור........ לכל מי שאינו מנסה להשלות את עצמו!!!


חוסו על נפשותיכם והתפללו בבית ואל תצאו איש מפתח ביתו

וכל המתפלל בבית מציל נפשות ויבא על שכרו.


אלא שיש לעשות זאת ברוגע בלי פאניקה כי בכל זאת ברוך השם האחוזים מאד נמוכים ואינם מצדיקים בהלה ופאניקה.


פשוט שראוי לכוון את הילדים ואת עצמינו לעשות זאת באופן חינוכי. כגון להקצות פינת תפילה ולהתפלל בשעה שידוע שיש בו רבים המתפללים ויה"ר שנצליח לעשות זאת בחכמה ובאופן חינוכי.


ב"ה שריחם עלינו ומזה כמאה שנה ויותר לא היתה מגיפה רצינית.


אבל כל מי שקרא בספרי קדמונינו יודע שבכל הדורות נהגו כן בעת מגיפה להסתגר בהסגר אין יוצא ואין בא.


 אין זה חידוש של דור זה אלא בכל דור בעת מגיפה היו בהסגר כמובן שהכל תלוי לפי חומרת המגיפה ואם המגיפה היתה חזקה היו מקיימים הפסוק בישעיה כפשוטו וכפשט רבי ישעי' מטראני

לֵ֤ךְ עַמִּי֙ בֹּ֣א בַחֲדָרֶ֔יךָ וּֽסֲגֹ֥ר דְּלָתְךָ֖ בַּעֲדֶ֑ךָ חֲבִ֥י כִמְעַט־רֶ֖גַע עַד־יַעֲבָר־זָֽעַם: (ישעיהו פרק כו פסוק כ)



חביבה מצוה בשעתה נאמר גם על מצווה גדולה כתפילה בציבור.


ויה"ר שלא  נהיה כמו

האוכל חמץ בסוכה בליל פסח משום שאוהב מאד את מצוות סוכה

והאוכל מצה בבית בחג הסוכות משום שאוהב מאד את מצוות מצה

החביבות של תפילה במנין הוא רק מפני שהקב"ה צווה עליה

והוא זה המעצאוה שציוה עלינו כעת להישמר מהסכנה ולחוס ולרחם על חיינו חיי חברינו.


הנני חוזר וכופל בזה את הנראה לענ"ד כי ממהר האלוקים לעשותו על כל שונאי ישראל ליזהר בכל היכולת שלא לצאת כלל מהבית ללכת ליד ובסמוך לאנשים.  הוא, בניו, בנותיו, ובני ביתו. כי אם לצורך קניית  מצרכים חיוניים שיהא לגוף ולמערכת החיסון כוח ע"י אכילה ושתיה ברווח כל אחד לפי צרכו.

או לצורך פרנסה שעל זה התירה התורה להסתכן.

וחוץ מלצורך מצרכים חיוניים ופרנסה יש להיזהר מאד להיות סגור בבית עד כמה שאפשר.


אי"צ לציין לחסידישע יידן את הגלוי וידוע לכולנו שיש להיזהר מאד מאד שכאשר די וועלט וועט צוריק זיין וועלט חזרה מצווה למקומה ביתר שאת וביתר עוז להתפלל בציבור עם כל העניינים הגדולים שבמצוה גדולה זו שיש ליזהר ולהתאמץ מאד בעבורה הן מצד עצם גדלות המצוה והן מצד הסגולה.


מיותר לציין שצריך לעשות כל מאמץ להיות בשמחה ובנחת וברוגע ובשלוה ביותר מבימים כתיקונם. וכדברי מר"ש במכתב קדשו. ומי שמרגיש בעצמו צורך להתאוורר להרחיב דעתו ייצא לשוח בשדה וברחוב לבד במאה מטר הסמוך לביתו.


ובזכות מצוה גדולה זו המכרעת את כל מצוות התורה נזכה לכל הברכות שהבטיחה התורה בגשמיות וברוחניות ולאריכות ימים ושנים רבות טובות ונעימות נשמה בגוף בהאי עלמא לנחת רוח לפניו יתברך מתוך שמחה הרחבה וכל טוב סלה.

That's your opinion, there are some that feel otherwise. I'm not one of the "some"  but I learned in life to respect others decisions regardless if I understand it or not.  While for the time being I don't agree  with their position I do get thier perspective.

You have a right to stay home and "protect yourself", others have a right to do as they wish if they are within the law. The government has a right to change the laws if they deem so is necessary.

Re: Is your Shul Secretly Open Right Now?
For someone who never misses a minyan this is a truly troubling situation. Someone who misses minyanim for non essential travel will obviously not show up now, thus they aren't a proof of anything.

But if the guy who makes a minyan in these times can't get up for netz byichidus it proves he isn't either legit.
Not if your Rov is wrong. Do you think a Rov has some kind of mystical powers?
But in this case he is right. He follows the Torah that says that safek nefashos trumps most.
You're just proving @Dans point. That the reason they're doing it is because they are worshipping themselves and their "winning streaks", not Hashem.

Love it. I bet most of these types during regular times will miss minyan for non-essential needs (e.g. travel for pleasure)
Could you stop with the missing minyan thing? We all know you wouldn't go anywhere where there isn't minyan three times a day and you wouldn't take any flight that makes you miss a Minyan.

Re: A goy does care.
Not hard. Challenging. Like missing minyan even though you really might not necessarily kill someone by going just this once
Now that you mention it, maybe this is why the Ari Zal says that you should be mekabel on yourself the Mitzva of Veahavta Lrea'acha komoicha before davening Shachris, so you won't go daven with a minyan and kill someone. (Derech Halotza, obviously).

Re: Halachik Status of Illegitimate Minyanim
I am curious with your opinion that porch minyanim in the US was cancelled for health reasons whereas in Israel it is being done legally EVERYWHERE and there are no issues. Why is one country different then another? the only reason I can see is Eiva. It makes no sense that people cant stand on their porches to daven for health reasons. If there was a health issue then dont go play in your yard either.
Because it's not only porch minyanim. People are standing around on the grass, too.

So you assir everything because a few people will break the rules? That makes no sense when it comes to davening with a minyan. If you can keep the rules then do it. If not then dont.
1. It's more than a few people. Almost every minyan turns out to be like that.
2. When it comes to Pikiach Nefesh you have to be very machmir.

מ״ה answered - 5,000. In the end 25,000 people died.
BST came back to the  מ״ה asked what happend I thought only 5,000 were supposed to die?
MH answered him- 5,000 did people did die from the plague, the rest were from panic.

Re: Unemployment Help
How can it be a dollar amount when everyone's base rate is different? 25% makes a lot of sense because for 3 days you receive 75% of your base rate, for 2 days 50%, for one day 25%, and at 0 days your at 0%.

What do you mean by saying benefits are increased by 20%? An increase in benefits for working more days and being less unemployed?
From NJ DOL website: https://myunemployment.nj.gov/before/about/calculator/
Quote
If your work hours were reduced, but not completely cut, you may still be able to collect Unemployment Insurance benefits.

NOTE: When claiming benefits, you must report your part-time wages when earned, even if you have not yet been paid.

How we calculate partial Unemployment Insurance benefits

When you claim your weekly benefit, you will let us know if you worked that week. We will ask how many hours you worked and how much you earned (gross) for that week.

To be eligible for partial benefits, you cannot work more than 80 percent of the hours normally worked in the job. For example, if you worked a 40-hour week, you won't be able to get benefits if you work more than 32 hours. If your employer offers additional hours that you choose not to accept, your benefits may be affected.

For any wages earned from any employer:

If you earn 20 percent or less of your weekly benefit rate from an employer, you can still receive your full benefit amount for that week. However, we will not pay you more than your weekly benefit rate.
Here's an example, using a weekly benefit rate (WBR) of $500. Let's say you worked a few days one week and earned $300. For $500, partial weekly benefit rate (PWBR) is $600.  Partial weekly benefit rate PLUS 20 percent.  You would receive $300 as your unemployment benefit for this week.  Your PWBR minus your earnings of $300 equals $300.
Let's take a look at another example. Let's say that one week you worked a few hours and earned $50. For a $500 WBR, your partial benefit rate is $600. $600 minus $50 equals $550. However, since we will never pay more than your WBR, which is $500, your benefit for this week $500. We're not penalizing you (cutting your benefits) because you were able to squeak out some more hours while you were collecting unemployment. We want to get you in the door to work even a little bit, since that's a step toward full reemployment.
If you earn more than 20 percent of your weekly benefit rate from an employer in a given week, your partial weekly benefit payment will be reduced dollar-for-dollar for all gross wages earned that week.
For example, if your weekly benefit rate is $200, your partial weekly benefit rate is $240 (20 percent more than $200.) If you earn $50 (gross) during a week, you would receive $190 in unemployment insurance benefits ($240 – $50 = $190).
Report your gross earnings and all hours worked for the week in which they were earned, not when they are paid.

Most of the liberal media won't call it the chinese/wuhan virus bc that's racist but that same media will blame the Jews whenever they could during these times
So this is a liberal/conservative issue, I thought you were saying it's a religious issue?

Re: Corona virus and your shul
A question on the topic from a different angle.

Some neighborhoods allegedly have minyonim going on in a manner that is not adhering to the medical and legal guidelines (either in shuls with limited participants or on the streets without proper social distancing), some places (like Lakewood by and large) have outdoor minyonim with social distancing and some places (like passaic and five towns) have no minyonim at all.

Are there new people contracting the virus at a higher rate in the places that are being less careful?
You're not going to get any scientific answer to that. Just use your common sense. It's unbelievable that we have to literally bang the basics into peoples' heads.
