Re: YWN Toronto Airport Agent Takes Apart Jewish Travelerís Tefillin
Seriously guys? I didn't think the title needed any editing. It said "YWN" as the first words.

What did y'all expect, I thought that was the best disclaimer a thread could have.

Sorry guys I was trying to get my post count up. I hope that even though it was moved to JS I still get the post count form the original location.

As @jj1000 said I thought YWN was enough of a disclaimer. In hindsight, it should read  "YWN Claims Toronto Airport Agent Takes Apart Jewish Travelerís Tefillin"

Re: Comments That Leave Me Speechless...
The ship tells me that someone called them shouting "how dare this Dan charge $6000 more than the regular price!" and then asked to book and bring his own food.

Did they let him?

That's going to be fun spending 10 days with him on a boat

Re: RIP/BDE Master Thread - COVID-19 related
Not that it mitigates the pain and tragedy at all, but I don't believe this was Corona related.
Is this confirmed Covid-19 related?

Dr fauci was asked how to fill out death certificates for untested deaths but seem to have a relationship to cover 19. His answer was to put it as coved-19 death.

He said we see other countries with low coved-19 reported deaths but a sudden rise in other causes of death. It's can't be true.

Same here ppl dropping to death all of the sudden has an underlying reason

Re: SBA PPP and EIDL Small Business Loans (some money is forgivable) just sent out the following:

DW got the same email.

I also just got an email from my bank (small bank located in MO) that they are now again accepting applications. Any point in applying there too? Multiple banks? Through AMEX?

Last round there seems there was loading problems with the SBA
So having an approved application by a bank may not mean it will be able to load it to the SBA in time

Chase advised its clients to try other banks too

Re: Areivim USA - Coronavirus
Typically Tzedaka's have Rabbinic leadership or a group of named askanim. Who is Areivim's?

This (I have been to a few Areivim meeting with these Rabbonim)

Harav Elya Brudny, Rosh Yeshivas Mir Flatbush;
Harav Yitzchok Isaac Eichenstein, Galanter Rav;
Harav Doniel Geldzahler, Rosh Yeshivas Ohr Yisrael;
Harav Binyomin Zev Landau, Tosher Dayan of Boro Park;
Harav Henoch Shachar, Rav of Klal Ohr Tuvia in Lakewood

I'm not sure how you looked but personally know 3 families that got.

It's also not that hard to find an almonh that got. On each collection there's a rav listed as that ruv.

Re: Areivim USA - Coronavirus
What percentage of Arevimís recipients donít have/need crowdfunding campaigns? My guess is the $100k/orphan is a pittance and theyíre going to need a lot more. You canít market Arevim as mitigating the crowdfunding if the payouts arenít enough to mitigate it.

That's why life insurance with Areivim is the way to go. So at your high point where you have many children unmarried and a million dollar policy won't cover funds will be raised in a dignified manner

May 03, 2020, 08:48:22 AM
Re: Areivim USA - Coronavirus One thing I find also very interesting

People tend to buy life insurance only for father not mother.
They underestimate the burden of losing a mother, even if she's not bringing in a income, on a family

Many older ppl turned up in shul this week. I suppose they have antibodies.

Re: Will the truth come out how NYC & NYS made blunder after blunder?
The two could not be further apart as far as studies go. Youíre comparing BP where most people (according to you) have antibodies and Yerushalayim where presumably most people donít.. the one thing they have in common is (presumably) not too many infectious people circulating

Agree. Just pointing out 2 things to follow

Re: Unemployment Help
Tax Credits: Covered employers qualify for dollar-for-dollar reimbursement through tax credits for all qualifying wages paid under the FFCRA.
Qualifying wages are those paid to an employee who takes leave under the Act for a qualifying reason, up to the appropriate per diem and aggregate payment caps.
Applicable tax credits also extend to amounts paid or incurred to maintain health insurance coverage. For more information, please see the Department of the Treasuryís website.

Is this done on the quarterly 940?

On UI you'll get your Weekly Benefit Rate plus $600 for all claims 3/28-7/31.

Can I choose to get paid from the employer or go on UI?

Small businesses with fewer than 50 employees may qualify for exemption from the requirement to provide leave due to school closings or child care unavailability if the leave requirements would jeopardize the viability of the business as a going concern.
Is this a self-assessment?

P.S. It beyond me what @cgr  is are doing for the community

Re: yeshivas that are open
You can only be mechalel shabbos but not miss tefila bitzibur?

You can be mechalel shabbos but not miss tfillin?

Question is is there Avia in doing mitzvos

Reminds me of a psak from Dovid Stav permitting shaking a woman's hand. As embarrassing her is a deorisa and shaking her hand is only a derabonon.

May 19, 2020, 08:31:37 PM
Re: yeshivas that are open Back on track

We all believe there is Avia by not treating a nonjew on Shabbat
We all believe there is no Avia for doing mitzvos in public

If there is imminent danger we should close shuls

We disagree if there is no imminent danger but
against the law
or not against the law but maybe perceived by a nonjew as endangering the public if we have avia

Re: Re: So How Was Your Shul This Week?
Let Ohio know they should revise their data to zero.

I think the only metric that indicates if it's going up or down is hospitalizations

Deaths are most likely from people that got sick long ago

Testing positive still does not mean it's a new case. Lots of people never tested until recently.

May 24, 2020, 09:46:00 AM
Re: So How Was Your Shul This Week? I love this thread (and others similar) They show how we are so close but so far apart.

One community in the tri-state area still has a complete ban, orders have yard minyanim, others are fully opened without any restrictions.

P.S. just another example how we can be so close but so far
A litvish bucher and father sat down next to me in Shul learning.
The young boy points out to his father that he found a kidushin gamara next to a chasidush guy.
He points out to his father how weird this was! Kedushin is a yeshivash mesechta, and chasidim don't learn that they learn weird mesechtus

May 24, 2020, 12:16:07 PM
Re: Calculating The Actual Fatality Rate
It's useless, most of the new hospitalizations are people being hospitalized for unrelated reasons (like going into labor) who happen to test positive.

If this is true, we don't really have accurate numbers

Re: Violent protests erupt across the country
How about sending in the military without the states asking for them?

Per Wikipedia

In 2006, Congress passed the 2007 National Defense Authorization Act, which gave the president the authority to mobilize National Guard units within the U.S. without the consent of state governors.[5][6]

Re: Unemployment Help In NY

If I file for UI for 4 weeks, then go back to work.
Will I need to work 26 weeks before being eligible for PFL (Paid Family Leave)? (I have been working at this employer a few years)

June 07, 2020, 10:35:42 AM
Re: Unemployment Help
@mgarfin looks like there are a few insurance carriers that offer PFL in NY, so you'd need to have a look at your companies policy to determine if a rehire does or doesn't reset the clock.

I found this from Gaurdian where it looks like they don't require another 26 weeks of employment for eligibility.

Here it looks like up to 28 days doesn't require a 26-week wait

I emailed Shelter Point to see what they say.

Re: SBA PPP and EIDL Small Business Loans (some money is forgivable)
Itís been a week since you accepted the loan amount, verified your identity and the SBA has your banking info (that they already deposited the advance into)? Maybe try calling them (using the number on the portal) and find out what the status of your loan is.

Just got my loan docs.
It's for the max amount. No info was requested.
It's now nine days since accepting portal invite and certifying request
