How is it possible that he is not getting the honor of a gadol? Tens of thousands would have filled the streets. It's not right.

Re: Coronavirus Victims Charity Pages I am posting all these links & I hope people dont think if you cant give a lot of money rather not give at all. The idea is to contribute according to your ability, even $1. It doesnt make a dif. Hashem doesnt ask more than the best we can. The mitzvah of tzedaka can be done for $1 or $1m

Re: Halachik Status of Illegitimate Minyanim

I know of an outdoor minyan that passing police cars saw to many parked cars and stopped to investigate, a child outside warned all the people that the police are here, so everyone ran into the garage.

Why Dont they take out the dreidels? Then they gonna scream nazi! Anti semite! These minyanim makers are the nazis! They are goirim yidden to die!

Re: Coronavirus Victims Charity Pages
These pages break my heart. But how do you ensure transparency?

Each page is raising 500k. How do these families and trustees ensure the funds are managed and distributed properly?

Your mitzvah is to give. And on a sidenote by each campaign you can see the people who are in charge

Re: Corona virus and your shul
Guys, please don't respond to someone who thinks congregating is fine as social distancing will only lessen the amount of souls we lose rather than stop all death.

95% of the people understand the severity of the situation & take proper precautions, however there will always be the 5% or so that are not mentally well, in every aspect of life/decision making.
Its the nature of humans

Re: Halachik Status of Illegitimate Minyanim
It's not my job or your job to worry about everyone. If someone has an essential job in a grocery store or delivering groceries or Amazon packages, that's their choice.

Saying you would rather die doing a mitzvah is absurd. The priority has to be to not die, not that if you die it should be doing a mitzvah.

Re: Corona virus and your shul
Every one should seek their own halachik guidance from their posek. Even in Lakewood their are some that differ in pesak.

Imagine someone would force you to listen to their rabbi or church leader.

Why is it so hard for some to live with the fact that others will make decisions in life [even life threatening] that you don't necessarily agree with.

Because when it comes to pekiach nefesh we need to err on the side of caution.
Im not going to change your mind & I am not trying to but we are allowed to scream & yell if peoples recklessness is potentially causing deaths. I dont care what any meikil might say. How can he be meikil on my blood?!

Re: Halachik Status of Illegitimate Minyanim
1. It's more than a few people. Almost every minyan turns out to be like that.
2. When it comes to Pikiach Nefesh you have to be very machmir.

Leave it at #2 and thats it.
Ill bet you if the guy makes it to Succos hell spend 10 hours with a magnifying glass reviewing his esrog but when it comes to his or his friends LIFE (legit life!) the samech mem gets a hold of him & others like never before. Its unreal!

Re: Antisemitism related to Coronavirus
Don't think this is direct antisemitism. I think it is a result from the narrative that antisemitism has built.

Re: Bill DBlasio Warns "The Jewish Community"
Despicable!

to single out Jews when he goes in public without a mask, doesn't practice social distancing, and a flyover gets huge crowds, yet his issue is the Jewish funeral.

and i hope all these "whistle blowers" have the same fate as all the jewish whistle blowers in our history.

(my opinion is that people should not get together for a funeral, but that's irrelevant right now)

Whistleblowers? A few hundred people gather will be dan lekaf zchus with social distancing etc wont create a scene for the media to pickup on? Cmon.. this wasnt some secret funeral!

Having said that Declownio is an idiot because you dont call out an entire community over a few hundred people. I think he doesnt mean bad hes simply stupid

Re: Bill DBlasio Warns "The Jewish Community"
Just seems stupid to get worked up over anti-Semitism when we're marching ourselves to the grave all by ourselves. Our priorities are warped.

Re: Bill DBlasio Warns "The Jewish Community"
Forget behave. This isn't about behavior, or optics, or equality, or fairness. We're literally killing our own people. And while we're doing it, we're shaking our fists at the moon. Anti-Semitism isn't going anywhere. It's as old as Judaism itself. But this is what sends us off the deep end? Does anyone else wonder if any of the tens of families we're collecting for killed themselves at a funeral? The thought is nauseating and repulsive, but can you look at what I'm looking at and blame me for thinking those thoughts? But sure, let's make sure everyone knows the sky is blue...

Ur generalizing just like deblasio, why?!

Re: Bill DBlasio Warns "The Jewish Community"
You're right. It has to do with our reaction. Why is he the focus? A fool with a megaphone (who nobody respects, by all accounts) says stupid things and we get distracted from the actual tragedy? The fool will still be there tomorrow, we can yell at him later. Our lives are being lost now.

Right, its 2 different issues.
Deblasio needs to have 1% of his brain functioning to know he cant send out such a broad generalization tweet & on a dif note yidden must listen to the authorities & rules because were under the spotlight.

Re: Bill DBlasio Warns "The Jewish Community"
That means his tweet was even more accurate. He hears reports of a large Jewish gathering again and checks it out for himself. It turns out to be true.

What good can possibly come out of singling out a religion? It was so dumb to tweet that!
Cuomo mentioned a while back if people dont stop playing basketball in the parks were going to close it down. He was speaking in general terms. Thats the way to do it! Cmon

Whos OK with this funeral? Whoever I was speaking to says it was a dumb idea. But these are 2 dif issues. I dont have any beef with you. Aderaba, I mostly agree with you

Re: Coronavirus Victims Charity Pages (Donate Now & Each Dollar Will Be Matched 4x!)
They collect monthly from their members. I think it's $7 per orphan, and $7 for the widow if there are 3 or more children. The max a member pays is $28 per month, but collections roll over to as many months as necessary.

yes I am part of it, its been basically $28 monthly for a very long time.

Re: Coronavirus Victims Charity Pages (Donate Now & Each Dollar Will Be Matched 4x!)
I once saw that stats. I believe they collect about 6 or 7 months each year, on average. It can probably be looked up somewhere.

It's also possible that they'll get large donations for corona.

Every month its been $28 since I remember

Areivim USA - Coronavirus Did you guys see the survey they sent out about collecting for the 16 families that the parent passed away? Curious what you all answered if youre willing to share.

They need to raise $8m
They are questioning whether to bill everyone $400 one time shot or different amounts and it will take 3 years etc.

Great organization! Tough times!



I have term life insurance bh but I also am signed up for areivim & I am a big believer in the organization for many reasons starting from a tzedaka perspective & from a self interest perspective of course too. If you havent signed up you should look into it

Re: Areivim USA - Coronavirus
+10000

The premise is very smart. Instead of making flashy campaigns when someone dies, there is a donor list that will each give $7 per orphan. As a plus, you have that protection.

I see it as a tzedakah opportunity. The self-protection is only a bonus.

Exactly, if you are willing to support unmarried orphans & even an almana sometimes when there are many kids left at home then this is a no brainer.

Re: Areivim USA - Coronavirus
They are a Ponzi scheme, plain and simple.
This has been disused so many times on this forum.
Clueless people sign up for a false sense of security or because they naively think they are helping some people. 
Get real life insurance for the same $28 a month.

Hi, this may be your opinion but my opinion is that I am willing to pay a max of $28 a month for orphans while in the back of my mind know god forbid if something happens my family is "extra" covered.

Re: Areivim USA - Coronavirus
There is a very important point regarding it working for a long time that you may be overlooking. Due to the structure of Areivim, their potential liability goes up with time. Those who signed up as a young family with one or two children and therefore a potential liability of $200,000 may now have 10 children for a potential liability of 1,100,000. How will these larger families now stress the system? That remains to be seen.

yidden are ke"h growing & young ones are always signing up. Isnt this the same idea as SSN although we hope never to cash in? B"H most people pass away with their kids married off

Re: Areivim USA - Coronavirus
If you truly care about your spouse then you should make sure that they have this security.

if you are responsible enough to get married & have kids you should be responsible enough to get life insurance, I am not an agent, no strings attached, totally unbiased.
Dont leave your almana & kids to the rachmunis of others. Everyone can afford "some" life insurance, even a smaller policy
