Re: Seminary/Yeshiva Israel Rebbeim
Again - what's the source? Are you simply speculating or have you read this somewhere? While I'm sure that the 'Chutznik Gap Year' brings less than a blip to Israel's economy, at some point Israel needs to re-open up to tourism. Don't know if it's going to wait that long.
He's just making it up. Like most people on ddf, fear mongering and flat out lies. Throw in a WhatsApp voice note about some guy shutting down the country, and you'll have it figured out

Re: Corona virus and your shul
Just out of curiosity, globally, where are there still minyanim?

I’ve heard they have in Israel from porches and at army bases, plus three daily ones at the Kosel.
Lol, all over the tri state area. Lakewood, Brooklyn,monsey the list goes on and on

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.

Re: Re: 5 Towns/Rockaway Master Thread
Glad your showing off your ignorance in a way everyone can see it.

Far Rockaway and the Five Towns closed before Lakewood.Both Shuls and schools. It was the Friday before public schools closed. Passaic also closed before Lakewood. Brooklyn was spotty. The Sefardim closed before Lakewood too. Lakewood only closed when they were required to by law.

As you might not be aware, right now Five Towns/ Far Rockaway is doing much better than most other places in the region. Numbers are all the way down. And we are still the only place where the anti-minyan activists are going full force.

In addition, you don't belong on this thread if you live in Lakewood. Besides the fact, you simply don't understand the argument. According to Rabbi/Dr. Glatt, and according to some of our local Rabbis, you committed a grave sin by davening with a minyan this morning. Nobody believes you can violate the social distancing rules required by law. The question is to add additional takanos. As I said, either you didn't read the thread, or you simply don't understand what you read.
5 towns was closed before most places in tri-state thats 100% true. They did get hit very hard originally but now its quiet. And I can back you up that a very large number of rabbanim are pro minyan and just aren't interested in the politics behind it. My brother is a very close Talmid of R Jaeger and he told me that the rosh yeshiva is being very protective about this situation because he's very close to it and feels a huge responsibility. But otherwise lots of local rabbanim are giving the go ahead to outdoor minyanim. And if someone doesn't know the exact details of the happenings in the 5ts community, Idk why they would be commenting here.
And anyone davening with a minyan now, no matter the circumstance should stop complaining.

Re: 5 Towns/Rockaway Rabbonim Ban All Minyanim Due To COVID-19 (Split Topic)
Why would someone have to “switch sides” to issue a psak that is different based on new facts on the ground? Presumably some more Rabbanim are going to be allowing porch minyanim as the danger level (seemingly) subsides, much as more Rabbanim stopped allowing minyanim as the danger levels (seemingly) rose in the beginning. They weren’t switching sides, the metzius was changing.
R u stam making hock??? You clearly don't live in 5ts, so why are u just making thing up? In 5ts it very much is sides, even now.

What are you talking about? I see this.

Total hospitalizations for the data set:
18-49: 5,356
50-64: 6,561
65+: 9,984

What did I misread?
18-64 is 54% of hospitalizions. 18-49 is 44% of the 18-64, therefore 18-49 is 24% of total hospitalizations. I didn't read numbers on the bottom so I was off....

Thanks for the DP. So it seems there are more new cases around than some people would have us believe..
He lives in lakewood. I don't think anyone really believes that there are 0 cases. Point was to flatten the curve. It flattened and now there may be cases here and there but by and large it has really died down bh. Assuming large % of from communities in ny got it I wouldn't be super concerned about another outbreak right now. But obviously we shouldn't let are guards down totally.

Re: Violent protests erupt across the country
Now I wanted to say something about the fact that we have lived over these last two or three summers with agony and we have seen our cities going up in flames. And I would be the first to say that I am still committed to militant, powerful, massive, non­-violence as the most potent weapon in grappling with the problem from a direct action point of view. I'm absolutely convinced that a riot merely intensifies the fears of the white community while relieving the guilt. And I feel that we must always work with an effective, powerful weapon and method that brings about tangible results. But it is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the negro poor has worsened over the last twelve or fifteen years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity.
This has nothing to do with race, police brutality or anything. These people out there rioting are animals. If you do not understand that, then you are part of the problem.  There's a way humans deal with these things, they protest peacefully, use the legal system etc. These people are looting target and apple stores because they are animals.

Re: Violent protests erupt across the country
If you can't look into their minds then you should just keep quiet. You need to be able to understand their point of view to have an opinion about it. Until then you are viewing from your experiences and not theirs. Even after, there is only so much you can see, but the first step is always to try and understand why they feel the way they do
I don't think any of us can ascertain what's going on in their heads. But in any case regardless of what it is, the rioting has nothing to do with any of it. And every single one of them should probably be charged with domestic terrorism. Look at videos, thats literally what it is

Re: Corona virus and your shul
They move on, but the virus is still here.  They go back to life as usual, but don't take precautions to protect their uninfected children and parents.
The super chasidish and yeshivish have pretty much been back to regular since a week or 2 after pesach, and people aren't getting sick, so as far as they see it, it's gone. And since their shuls have been open for well over a month now and older people haven't been dying, means one of 2 things. Either shul isn't really spreading and therefore keeping them closed didn't make sense. Or that its finished, there isn't really a logical explanation.

Re: The Vulnerables ARE Us I'm not sure what communities you are referring to but most of the main stream ultra orthodox community in ny/nj is back to business as usual and not trying to protect anyone. Go into any store and you'll see for yourself, full of young and old people alike. Generally speaking the communities that overall are  more paranoid about corona, young and old people are nervous. Regular chareidi shuls are not restricting older people or anything like that for the most part. Whether communities were very locked down or not so much at all they all got hit hard. So to assume that in the long run corona will be an issue doesn't Seem realistic. So there is no us or them, everyone is good. While people here sit and stress about corona, you can go outside and look at the street, its full of people, highways are full, stores are full, flights are full.... At this point it seems to appropriate to stay safe stay smart, and just things be.

Re: Interesting Articles... C/p
New York to observant Jews: Drop Dead and pay Taxes. By Yosef Chaim Brooks

The observant Jewish community is no longer welcome in New York. Our way of life is being trampled on, our needs are dismissed with ease, our vote is irrelevant and cannot change a thing.

We are being mocked, humiliated, and relegated to third-class status with shockingly cocky dismissiveness by politicians who are often invited to our Synagogues and claim to be sworn friends of the Jewish people.

I'm only 40, born, and bred in Brooklyn and I can still remember feeling like New York is for all practical purposes a Jewish city. Our community makes up a substantial portion of the city's population. We are politically connected, with friends in high places who can get whatever is needed "done".

We run so much of New York's economy, and make up an important part of its tax base. We believe we have the respect and consideration of city and State government since they understand and appreciate our contribution to New York.

That's what most of us thought.

Then came Corona and everything we believed to be true about New York, turned out to be false.

We learned that not only do we not have a special status in New York but inf fact we don't even have equal status to other residents. As a matter of fact, we have no status, unless you consider taxation without representation a status. 

You see in the name of public health New York officials told us that:
Our Synagogues must be completely shuttered until the time that the "Public Health Experts" decide they can reopen, which could be at any time or at no time. This was strictly enforced by NYPD who were very scrupulous at kicking people out of Synagogues if GOD forbid they found one in operation.

We may not pay final respect to our beloved parents and grandparents who passed away. We were forced to hold no funerals at all or funerals with a handful of people. If you dared try to hold a funeral even if it was outside, even with the most extreme social distancing you had police cars follow you around until you dispersed.

We were told we cannot visit our parents or grandparents in the hospital leaving many of them to die at the hands of careless or overwhelmed nursing staff.

We were told our small and medium-sized businesses needed to remain shuttered until the time that the "Public Health Experts" decide they can reopen, which could be at any time or at no time; While big box stores were allowed to remain open. If any of us dared roll up the gate of their store more than a few inches they were handed a fine to the tune of thousands of dollars to make up for all the lost revenue the city has endured due to lack of parking tickets.

We sat through all of this quietly. In our hearts, we knew it was wrong, at least some of it. We knew it was a gross overreaction. We knew these draconian limitations on life were extended well beyond what was necessary but we also understood that our city and state are run by progressive democrats and that comes with a price so we sucked it up and remained quiet.

But then came the George Floyd protests.

All of a sudden, Public Health was out the window. Social Distancing, nonexistent. Only small crowds under ten people, non-applicable.   

To add insult to injury the very same Public Health Officials who made up all those rules and city and state officials who made sure they strictly enforced, had an overnight change of heart and seemingly change of science facts and data.

What was unacceptable for the Jews ie communal prayer and funerals as a start, was perfectly fine and encouraged for George Floyd protests. One NYC Public health official even went as far as saying that should there be an increase in Covid infections after the protests it can only be blamed on racism and not on the lack of social distancing exhibited by protestors. I must have missed it when the same official said that should there be a COVID outbreak as a result of large crowds at a Hasidic funeral it can only be blamed on antisemitism, oh you mean he didn't say that?

You see when it came to the Jews the Mayor had harsh words: "My message to the Jewish community and all communities ( I wonder who he meant by "all communities" because we never saw any enforcement of this kind against any of the other ALL communities, but I digress) is this simple, the time for warnings has passed". Ooh what a tough guy this mayor is, against Hassidic Jews at a funeral, I must have just missed it when he stated the time for warnings has passed to the looters.

Then just to twist the dagger a little more, we all saw the images of nurses all dressed up in PPE's walking out of a Manhattan hospital entrance to clap for the protestors and support them. You remember those sweet nurses that were featured in ads telling us to stay home so that they may stay alive? You remember those sweet nurses that told us we can't sit at the hospital bedside of our parents because of the public health risk? (only to later learn that untold numbers of our greatest generation were literally left for dead under the care of the sweet nurses of New York, but I digress again). Anyhow THOSE nurses were now cheering the largest middle finger ever given to public health guidelines while dressed in full gear.

When an Orthodox journalist confronted the Mayor on his hypocrisy and double standard when examining his treatment of the Jewish community, its sensibilities and needs, vs the Goerge Floyd protestors, the son of a bitch didn't even flinch. He went on a rant explaining to the reporter that 400 years of slavery simply overrule any and all other considerations, Science, Public Health, facts, data, be damned. But if those damn Jews put a minyan together all hell will break loose.

As a side note last week, long after the George Floyd protests were upon us, those rebellious Jews in Williamsburg had more than ten children at once at a public playground. They forgot their George Floyd protest signs at home so guess what happened, I won't keep you in suspense yep NYPD cleared them out.

As looters were looting and destroying store after store in New York City with no one there to stop them, we remembered why there were no cops available for that. They were too busy handing out fines to store owners in Brooklyn who were guilty of the crime of trying to conduct business to feed their families and serve their customers after being denied that right for over three months.

Then came the latest decree from Emperor Cuomo, Thou shalt not have any sleep-away camps this year. Why not? because I said so.
George Floyd protests? Sorry, the answer is no.

So now after three and a half miserable months, our kid's summer plans for the next two months get trashed yet again.

So how does it feel to be a proud New Yorker today?

This city and state are the heart of Jewish life in America right?

Let's pause and think for a moment.

What exactly do we get out of living here?

We have to fund our own Ambulances and first responders because city ambulances arrive long after the pronunciation of death.   

We have to fund our own community security organizations because NYPD is simply not enough to keep our communities safe.

We have to self-fund all of our schools because religious Jews have no right to expect that their children's education is paid for like any other resident in the city. 

Oh I forgot there is one thing we do get and I would be remiss if I didn't mention it. We get an extra Garbage pickup in our neighborhoods on Erev Pesach-don't say no one is thinking of us! Come on, that's got to be worth a few billion dollars in taxes no?

This city is a dump. They call it the big apple, the city that never sleeps. It should be renamed the big pothole or the city of rats.

Why do we still live here? we shouldn't.

Here's a crazy idea, We've all heard the word defund thrown around lately which got me thinking.

I was thinking defund NY has a good ring to it.

Let's pack ourselves and our businesses up and Jexit NY to any place in America where entrepreneurs are appreciated and religious freedom is celebrated.

I don't know maybe some exotic place like Florida or Texas. Let's domicile our businesses and residences in those states and bring all our tax revenues along.

Even if we won't receive any appreciation or notice at least we won't be trampled on as we currently are in the big rotten apple. But just one favor to ask before we do that let's all register our kids to public school for next year. Let's see how New York figures out where to educate 100 thousand children overnight.

I'm feeling a slogan that goes something like "no schooling no peace" as we get on jet blue to FLL or MCO, thoughts?

Re: Is there a second wave?

The reason the virus is making less waves now is simply because

#1 hospitals aren't being flooded like before
#2 treatment got significantly better, much lower % are dying bh

There are 2 drugs out there that work. If remisvider lowers patients hospital stays by a few days, that clears up beds and hospital man power

The second drug for more chronic patients is saving lives.  Or any immunosuppressants they are using has been saving lives.

However, the idea was being safe, social distancing, masks, wash hands.

You sound like people in the eye of the hurricane, inside the eye it's very calm.

Why aren't they flooded like before? First we were all dumb because we didn't close shuls fast enough, now that they are all open and numbers are down.... new twist.  And great comparison, your talking about a virus that was spreading like wildfire and nobody knew about it?! More accurate comparison would be standing outside when it's nice weather and saying hey its nice weather.

For example, if super spreader a) wears a mask and sanitizes his hands etc even if no symptoms, in all likelihood none to few get

Re: Will there be Sleep Away Camp this summer?

Cheaper than individual testing Depending on the location & facilities something to the tune of:

Immediate segregation into limited size capsules
Sanitation.
Individual PCR tests for everybody.
Isolation plan for positive cases - joint capsule/hospital/home/individual isolation
Camp disbanding transportation plan / continuing in capsules until additional cases are ruled out


All with a written plan of action and chain of command & responsibility.
This sound like protocol for an active war zone. These camps are for young kids.... most are either gonna open anyway or do day camp without these draconian measures.

Re: So How Was Your Shul This Week?
I think the order of events should be minyan for men, minyan for women as well, and only then Kiddush.

Maybe those shuls could set up a 2nd minyan in the social hall in order to accommodate women rather than use it for Kiddush.
If your part of any chareidi community that is not and will not ever be the case. And in most chareidi shuls most women don't even have an interest in going most of the time

Israel didn't lock down completely, as evidenced by the amount of Covid cases traced back to people returning from out of the country, and they arguably opened up too quickly, due to economic pressures.
Was mostly citizens, and Israel most definitely did lock down completely.

Re: Are we going too far?
Keep thinking it is the other guy and things will only get worse.
Do you see any republicans/conservatives shooting hundreds of people every day? Shooting fireworks? Tearing down statues of the founders of our country? Shooting our police Burning our flag?!?!

Re: Will there be Sleep Away Camp this summer?
This I just don't get. To what end? If the camp gets shut down after a week or 2, what are those kids supposed to do? At that point, it's too late for parents to make other arrangements. And what about the damage to the institution itself? Who pays the fines? Will this impair their ability to open next year? What about permits or certificates they need to run other programs? I just don't see justification here.
Highly unlikely they get shut down, and for kids that live in brooklyn and have been stuck in a small apartment the last 4 months they'll take 2 weeks.

Re: Will there be Sleep Away Camp this summer?
Based on what I see and read. I have no clue what's going on behind the scenes. I would point out that the question, "do you know what's going on behind the scenes," was thrown around a lot when they were trying to get shuls opened. IIRC, there wasn't much accomplished.
There was plenty accomplished with the shuls... after pesach the cops didn't go around closing shuls that were open..
