And this is just another reason why Hashem sent the Corona.

Note how it totally eradicated Lizhensk, Kerestir & Meron, the 3 biggest געפארעכט׳ס of the year.

What are the lottery numbers? lets not say "this is why it happened".

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.

Thank you to all very charitable people out here on DDF & the world who feel with another familys pain & do what we can do help out.
May Hashem repay you all you should not know of any sorrow or pain.

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?!

In Lakewood it is very easy to get the entire wedding including hall, music, and photographer for well under 20k

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.
I’ll bet you if the guy makes it to Succos he’ll 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!

I didn't say it's not a topic for everyone but safe to assume for the majority. Hvaces42 can tell you how much of those minyanim he's seeing.

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.

this is precisely why Lakewood has to go above & beyond with minyanim, shopping etc. to make sure there is no aiva. Every move a yid makes here is watched by hungry dogs

Re: Bill D’Blasio Warns "The Jewish Community"

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 D’Blasio 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.

2 dif issues. We need to behave & deblasio is an idiot

April 28, 2020, 11:59:57 PM
Re: Bill D’Blasio 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?!

April 29, 2020, 12:11:44 AM
Re: Bill D’Blasio 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.   

April 29, 2020, 12:31:04 AM
Re: Bill D’Blasio 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

1 million percent!!! I'm sorry @Chapshnell for highlighting your comment, it was just the most convenient example to illustrate my point. I'm not mad at individuals, just the general sense of complacency we've come to, where we're just ok with not being ok with it.

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.

April 29, 2020, 11:26:11 AM
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

There's already a thread for areivim. Why not move this discussion there

Good idea thanks, all campaigns are now noted with a # in the wiki so people can refer to it by number to @Iz etc

April 30, 2020, 08:02:46 AM
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

April 30, 2020, 07:57:50 PM
Re: Areivim USA - Coronavirus

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.

April 30, 2020, 08:05:41 PM

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.
your so called "clueless" chapshnell  ::)

May 01, 2020, 09:51:47 AM
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

May 01, 2020, 10:54:48 AM
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

Re: Bird Feeders and Backyard Birding
Whatever falls on the ground by me is quickly eaten by ground-feeding birds. I have a consistent flock of 30-40 mourning doves and grackles who show up whenever some other bird made a mess.

I see you didnt understand what I meant.. We produce nuts & seeds in our factory so when we run sunflower kernels they are so small that they fly all over the floor which = garbage not for human consumption. Perfect for birds though! So I dont need to buy seeds.

Donated $100 to Falik family (number 42)

(it's showing up as $200, because of a matcher, but my donation was $100)
Technically this means that your $100 becomes $800

$100 matched to $200 now when the DDF matcher gives $300 it becomes $600 + the previous $200. Wow

Re: Areivim USA - Coronavirus
I have two thoughts on this story

1. Is it possible to let it lapse as he was relying on aravim as a backup

2. If someone signs up as a sponsor, as at that time he's financially stable. Over the years he loses all his money.
Is he required to call in and change a status or may he assume that they will see there is no money

Good questions, someone responsible would email areivim & change the status.
