Re: When is this all expected to be over?
For you @CountValentine

It is said, “For this, let every pious man pray to You in the time of finding, that the overflowing waters may not reach him” (Psalms 32:6). With regard to the phrase, the time of finding, Rabbi Ḥanina said: The time of finding refers to the time one must find a wife, that one should pray to find a suitable woman to marry. As it is said: “He who finds [matza] a wife finds [matza] good and obtains favor from the Lord” (Proverbs 18:22). In Eretz Yisrael, the custom was that when a man married a woman, they would ask him: Matza or motzeh? In other words, they would ask the groom whether the appropriate passage for his wife is the above verse from Proverbs that begins with the word matza, as it is written: “He who finds a wife finds good and obtains favor from the Lord” or whether the more appropriate verse is the one beginning with the word motzeh, as it is written: “And I find [motzeh] the woman more bitter than death” (Ecclesiastes 7:26).

Re: Shop Local!! (When it's safe to do so) Worthy to add that at this time when there are no mikvas available, it's not that smart to purchase your Pesach kitchen needs online, and then struggle to figure out where to toivel them, vs. shopping at your local store with a mikva on premises.

give them toys 1 for each child minus 1

Re: This is getting serious... a somber thread about COVID-19 You need to listen to your Doctors about your physical and health behaviors, you need to listen to your Rabunim about your spiritual and yiddishkeit behavior.

Re: Corona virus and your shull
This is also the sad outcome of hagiographic biographies of the personages of the previous generations where stories are told of mesirus nefesh for [fill in the blank] when in fact those stories never happened or are embellished beyond any truth. The mesirus nefesh in the concentration camps was by individuals not hundreds or thousands.
Among the chilul hashem that is going on on this thread, the above one is on a total different level of low. Very sad to see how some emerge with their true colors in this crisis.

Anything you can give would be greatly appreciated - and תזכו למצוות!

Re: Halachik Status of Illegitimate Minyanim
He doesn’t. Pure שומע כעונה.
So now you know more than Rav Shternbuch? Seriously. It's a halacha in Shulchan Aruch that we give a suma an aliyah. He reads along with the baal koreh (in this situation the oleh would do the same, just reading from his chumash along with the baal koreh).
שומע כעונה לא סגי בקריאת התורה, דמדינא צריך העולה לקרות מתוך הכתב ממש כמבואר להדיא בשו׳׳ע, ואינו דומה לסומא וע׳׳ה שמיקל הרמ׳׳א הואיל וכבר נהגו, דשם הוא משום דרכי שלום, משא׳׳ כ בזה ואין כאן מנהגא, ועוד דהכא אינו עולה כלל

With that said, I would like to see the psak of Rav Moshe Sternbuch, If someone can post it please.

Depends where, Chasidishe don't oppose it for the most part, same as they do it in Israel. There is no unanimous consensus to oppose backyard/porch minyanim as it may sound here again and again.

Re: COL video about Maimonidies, a must watch
The hospital starving him was a little far fetched.
Can't open the video, so can't comment anything on that. But I heard "first hand" from multiple people who waited for a cup of water several hours. I heard from a very prominent doctor (Dr. Dov Landa) who was himself a patient in the hospital with the virus, that had he been 20 years older he wouldn't survive in these conditions. He blames (actually cried) that the protocol of not letting a single family member in costed many lives. NYU ftr.

Re: Succos supplies affected?
Last I checked the death rate for the esrogim were very low so the supply should not be affected.
Also given that Esrogim tend to cut themselves off the tree and then nicely pack themselves into boxes and onto shipping containers, without any human intervention, they probably won't be affected. Another plus is that the stay home orders were given only to humans, fruits got a waiver. All in all things look positive B"h.

Re: POLL: Wedding expenses in the frum Community - BH for simchos? or out of hand?
I don't understand all thr money on gifts/clothes etc.

We've been married 4 years, and nearly everything in my apartment was bought second hand or from ikea (a few things from the Raymour and Flanigan outlet).

You could add up the value of everything in ou apartment, and it's less than some of the gift amounts above. Insane.
Just take a walk down New Utrecht ave and take a look at the furniture stores, or 13th ave, only the subway screech will remind you that you aren't touring Rodeo Drive.

Re: Corona virus and your shul
I think this conversation is pointless because everyone here is biased with their own opinions. But in any case if everyone can do it in a safe way there is absolutely no reason not to daven with a minyan. The fact that so many have come out against and so few rabbaonim are pro minyanim is pure politics, they were pressured big time to come out against all these things. If anyone here took a second to think about it they would realize that if everyone Davens from their own space there is no health risk. Obviously if your rabbonim say not to then don't. I personally have not davened with a minyan in weeks because my rov said not, but he also thinks there's no issue. To the people staying home good for u, and u should continue to do so. But fact is look all over the country, parks are full, stores are full, planes are flying, and cars are driving. So IMHO its unreasonable and senseless to go bashing people who daven with a minyan because you were told otherwise. As to shuls being open, that's pure irresponsibility.
This should have conclude this thread 2 weeks ago, but in quarantine people seem to repeat the same arguments again and again.

Are you saying you agree? A simple “like” would suffice ;)
I can sure give you as many likes you want :), but I disagree, the wave of people dying was due to the virus had spread before the shuls were closed, most likely on Purim, when mayor De Blasio said it's okay to visit the grandparents.

Re: Corona virus and your shul
So seriously in fact that at least 3 70+ year olds were at the minyan this shabbos on my block. The reason: They are grandparents or great granparents of a baby girl that was named at the minyan. Very very very important reason that should not be discounted. Thats besides the pther guest that decided they needed to join the minyan and came to daven here on the street. Strolling back and forth is a requirement in a certain chasidus apparently.

 Also trespassing on a front walk and standing at someones door who isnt home for weeks is also allowed. The guy even had the chutzpah to hang his siddur in a bag on the door all shabbos so he didnt have to carry in the eruv because he doesnt really hold of that.

Thats my update for now.
The sidur and bag part I can easily digest.. But 3 70+ people left the safety of their home for a kiddish is moronic indeed.
