Re: Antisemitism related to Coronavirus

Thats honestly more like the Jew that yells anti semite if anyone attacks him in anyway.
She was very much so targeting republicans, not Jews [albeit in an uneducated ignorant way]

Re: Coronavirus Victims Charity Pages (Donate Now & Each Dollar Will Be Matched 4x!)
Yes, but can all of these almanos and yesomim wait as long as it takes for them to bill all of it?

The money from areivim is meant to be mainly for bar mitzvah, wedding etc. So yes, I hope they can wait. Most ppl don't need 100K per kid the second the lose a loved one, even if he was the breadwinner.
It's meant to stand the  on their feet for the long term, not the short term.

Re: Areivim USA - Coronavirus
I'm not so sure that's accurate. They say that they will determine if the family needs the funds. If you have life insurance, would they say your family needs their funds? I assume not.

I spoke to Areivim at length as I sell life insurance and wanted to best advise ppl that had Areivim already and wanted to supplement it with LI.
I was told that it has never happened that Areivim declined to pay out based on someones assets or LI. It has happened that the family told them they don't need the money, but they never told the family no.
Simple reasoning is, they also think that 100K per yasom doesn't really cover it, the program just won't allow for a higher payout at $28/ monthly. So they encourage everyone to have LI as well to make sure kids are adequetly covered, and owning LI does not disqualify a payout [unless each kid will receive over a million dollars etc].

Re: Areivim USA - Coronavirus
Which is interesting, because the number one reason not to get life insurance is the price, and this is just requiring an additional premium.

This advertises as a prevention for people not needing to collect money, but the reality is far from the way people envision it

The number one reason?
There's actually no reason not to get LI.

And this premium is masser and going straight to an almana and yesomim,  ot to a large coorperation.

Yes, it advirtises as not needing to make a collection, the exact same reason to get LI. It is very argueable that LI is not for the family to have money, they would have money from collections anyway. But it is to save them from the shame of having their names plastered all over the city. And from having the yesomims friends seeing pictures of their friends crying by their fathers levaya, asking for money. And from those same friends comparing how much each of their fathers gave torwards the campaign. Etc. Etc.

Re: Areivim USA - Coronavirus
So we are trusting Rabanim/askonim with finances! Letís trust the life insurance companies with our שאלות.

Is there transparency as to who is in charge of the familyís money??

We have had DDF members pass away, letís hear from their widows. Life insurance or arievim???

Do we have a thread for Stupidest posts of DDF??

I don't beleive the word you were looking for was stupidest.

More accurate may have been wrongest.
Of course we trust our rabbanim on any subject. They may decide to ask advice from financial professinals, but we never value anyones opinion above our rabnanim.

Wouldn't it just be straight out racist?

Or just realist

Re: NY Rent Relief
People won't magically afford two months rent in a few weeks or months even...

And ppl won't be able to afford car insurance payments, so Geico should offer it for free.
Nor will they afford tissues, so Kleenex will sponsor..
Just curious, do you have a business that you started giving away stuff for free instead of charging?

Re: Minyan Guidance In Your Community
Tbh they never closed down and probably have a nice amount of blood on their hands, laughing or not. I am generalizing and perhaps exaggerating but you know what Iím saying.

This prob belongs in the anti semitism during COVID thread

Re: Did you test for antibodies? POLL
As the data is coming in two key things seem to be emerging:
A) Most people who havenít had symptoms who test do NOT have antibodies
B) There are more symptomatic people who tested negative than asymptomatic people who tested positive (for antibodies)

You do realize that this doesn't [nessacerialy] mean that people had it but don't have anti bodies.

The people testing negative but had symptoms could have simply had the flu or a cold, but that's called symptomatic cause everyone was assuming it MUST be COVID 19

Re: Dropping Antibody Levels
Is it a bit much to say there is blood on the hands of people who acted recklessly in defiance of doctors and Rabbanim and directly caused some deaths?

If you're G-d. and can trace every small germ around the globe, nope, definitely not too much to say.

For the rest of us...
