Re: What precautions are you taking now? Do you think you're immune?
No need to wait. It didn’t flare up in Bp Monsey KJ Williamsburg.
Here we go again.

Re: Lakewood Shul has 2 types of minyanim
Haven’t seen a mask yet and I’ve davened indoors in three shuls
Which is why I'm still outside. Luckily, we still have an outdoor minyan.

Re: New Virus Hot Spots
That's like saying lakewood is Jewish. Yes there are parts of Sullivan that are Jewish. But places that these cases are not the Jewish area
That's doesn't help. They can still say the Jews brought it up there. And they may or may not be right.

Re: So How Was Your Shul This Week?
I am presuming that he is referring to how CH was hit by the virus.
I think he meant because the police hang out there all day as enforcement is difficult there. CMIIW.

Re: New Virus Hot Spots
It reads-- BH the non jews are getting it
I highly doubt he meant that. I think he meant it as @Dan understood it.

Re: Corona virus and your shul
No one was challenging the rules. It was more about logistics, as not every minyan ran so smoothly with the transferring Sifrei Torah, etc.
That's great! Things can always be figured out if there is a will.

Re: So How Was Your Shul This Week?
Because no-one imagines that you have herd immunity there, unlike the Jewish communities in the NYC area that strongly believe that herd immunity is here now.
Imagine is the right word....

Re: Violent protests erupt across the country
As I am just  a little bit young to remember more violent protests, when was the last time protests like this happend in America?

Are these the most widespread most violent ever ??? ?
Yes, you're too young. :) You have welfare programs as a result of them.

Re: Violent protests erupt across the country

Is this a real headline? If so, it's beyond shameful. War on Americans? Calling in National Guard to protect store owners from violent mobs and restore law and order is "War on Americans"? Is this an alternative reality that we live in?

Re: Bill D’Blasio Warns "The Jewish Community"
This might be crazier than his jewish community tweet. And Gov Smith had the same sentiments.
They’re straight up saying these are the order of priorities:
1. protesting peacefully in a crowd
2. covid safety
3. earning a living/religious rights in a crowd

Protesting and being religious are both 1A. Both (or neither) should trump covid b/c of importance.

That guy is seriously a piece of garbage.

Re: Bill D’Blasio Warns "The Jewish Community"
His quote was infuriating. As if people wanting to open up are just antsy to get their nails done. How can someone who thinks that of his constituents govern?
Typical elitist class disdain for the honest working class.

Re: Violent protests erupt across the country
Same goes for every public official making these heartwarming statements.

Someone should tell this guy to keep his mouth shut and not make fun of former presidents. If he claims to represent us, he should grow up and act like a mentsh. I don't see anyone from the Agudah behaving that way.

Re: Corona virus and your shul
as in facts you don’t like?!
Yes, there's ~9-10 DDFers who've been gleefully pointing out how shuls etc are fully back to business with no masks. As if somehow opening a shul with masks is a bad thing.
Exactly. People act as if it's over and, worse, never existed in the first place. It's not the most comfortable thing to wear a mask in shul, but it's just common sense to do so for the time being.

June 07, 2020, 06:36:52 PM
Re: Corona virus and your shul
are you implying that the people Not wearing masks don’t have common sense?! ::)
Why are you more disturbed by my expressing my observations than by the people who are actually doing those things?

Re: would you fly now?

“If you’re going back out to restaurants again and that sort of thing there's no particular reason why flying is more dangerous to you,” Seth Kaplan, an airline expert and transportation analysis told FOX Business.

“The air on airplanes is actually rather clean and it's designed to prevent the spread of disease. The reason you get sick on an airplane is because you’re sitting right next to someone who's sick or because you touched a surface that someone who’s sick did. It’s the people around you. Whether you’re on an airplane or somewhere else," Kaplan explained.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines say that people may be less likely to contract a virus on a flight because of how the air is circulated and filtered on airplanes, but they may be more likely to get sick from being in close contact with others on airport security lines or from coming in contact with frequently touched surfaces.

What a load of stupidity. "Airplanes are totally safe, it's just there's this thing called people who are sitting right next to you that's the problem. But airplanes themselves? Totally safe."

Re: Lakewood protest
Police chief Meyer responded to the criticism:
I agree with him. It is their job to ensure that protests remain peaceful. So it makes sense that he would join with them. The only question remains why they couldn't at least attempt to keep the protesters 6ft away from each other? Though, they were probably afraid of it escalating if they did that.

June 09, 2020, 10:35:00 AM
Re: Lakewood protest
Indeed, I think it's a good answer. But it doesn't explain why Mayor Coles was there, and even more troubling, OC Prosecutor Billhimer. He is in charge of upholding the law, but he is not a field law enforcement official.
There's reasoning for that, too. They also can help with keeping things calm since it shows that they are being listened to.

June 09, 2020, 10:41:53 AM
Re: Lakewood protest
hmmmm, okaaaay. Perhaps.So if they come to close my shul, we should just get out of control and they'll come daven with us?
I'm not excusing the picking and choosing. I'm just explaining their reasoning. And, yes, life is not fair. The kids who act out aways get more attention in school.

June 09, 2020, 10:54:42 AM
Re: would you fly now?
Love the hypocrisy. Airplanes are just like restaurants. The reason you get sick on airplanes is from surfaces or sitting close to someone sick. So in summary, go on airplanes if you go anywhere else, same risk.
I think 2020 will down in history as the year of unmasking, not the year of masks...

Re: Life Hacks, Post Your Favorites! For those posting tech tips, isn't there a thread for that? Not to take away from their usefulness. Btw, for whoever posted regarding clipboard history, that was added in a recent version of Windows 10 and has to be enabled. Just make sure you don't get your bosses clipboard history (that happened to me, must have been an early big with the feature).

Also Windows key+shift+S replaces the snippet menu on recent versions of Windows 10 and is much more convenient and useful.

Re: Are we going too far?
Really scary. The issue with this, is that this attitude is only getting more and more prevalent. Are we still in America, land of free and healthy debates? It seems like this trend to silence anyone not conforming with some radical outlook and sentencing them to a virtual death sentence is only accelerating.

Re: Violent protests erupt across the country
Hypocrisy at its finest.  ::)
I'm not really involved in this whole debate, but I can understand why Ted Cruz would approve of Jews breaking open the lock in an act of defiance against Bill DeBlasio's hypocritical, emphatic support of the rioters while absurdly cracking down on children in a park.

Re: Will the truth come out how this administration made blunder after blunder?
Fauci literally testified today in front of Congress that nobody was ever asked to slow down testing. It was a joke.

So promising to stop lawlessness (that's exactly what this autonomous zone is) is now considered threatening and should be removed off Twitter? "Wiping Israel off the map" is ok with them?

Re: Long Term Effects of COVID-19

But some others

Here, DDMS comments, Whatsapp, everywhere.
Oish. May I recommend some therapeutic treatment?

I just heard a recording of the Klausenburger Ruv (his yahrtzeit is today) relating how he refused to eat Treif when he arrived at Auschwitz, and how desolate he felt when all of a sudden someone came looking for him with food and he came to the realization that Hashem was with him even there in the camps of death.

I found his way of expressing himself so candid and honest. It was very refreshing after living in our times when we are all surrounded by so much deceit and lies, all we hear on the news is more dumb politics, and more dumb politicians.

ETA: I really shortened the story. Here is an audio clip of the Klausenburger Ruv Zatzal relating the episode (with English subtitles).

Marriott person I spoke to when I called to reserve said 5th night is only free when booking completely with points. No certificates or cash + points.
Same here, I spoke to a supervisor, too. They couldn't show me where in the T&Cs it mentioned free night certificates and that they were different than points. I'm supposed to be getting a response via email from their rewards team. 🤷‍♂️
