Re: Are You An Organ Donor?
Thank you - I know @aygart is dependable, as is @hvaces42 . This is what I was driving at. Kavod Hameis is not the primary issue. Chilul Shabbos for a non jew (AKA the Noah Feldman issue) is a very different sugya, much discussed in 2005 or whenever that was
Thank you. Exactly.

The way these threads end up going is that people start twisting themselves into pretzels to explain something they really don't understand themselves and end up saying things which are both wrong and look bad. I will not participate.

Is a blind person not compared to the dead?
So is a poor person. That does not mean it is an absolute comparison. It is דומה comparable which does not mean equivalent.

Re: Are You An Organ Donor?  As an aside, by being an organ donor your death  becomes much more valuable to the medical field than your life. Ask icu personnel how/if this affects how they treat patients.

Re: Vaccine Discussion Master Thread
Dear Friends,
B’siyata D’shmaya we have formed The Vaccine Coalition, a Coalition of Non-Vaccinating Parents in Lakewood, New Jersey.
This coalition was founded by R’ Malkiel Kotler shlit”a, R’ Shmuel Meir Katz shlit”a and R’ Refael Szmerla shlit”a, and it aims to address the current pressing issue of schools rejecting or dismissing non-vaccinated children. It will also be available to help non-vaccinating parents in Lakewood in any area we feel we can, as well as to provide support of ‘strength in numbers’ to pro-vaccine choice Lakewood families.
This coalition depends on a collective voice and will not be launched until we reach a minimum of 250 families. If you live in Lakewood and have made a decision not to vaccinate your children, we encourage you to please take a few moments to sign up to join the coalition, for your benefit, and for the benefit of all other Lakewood families like yourselves.
 By joining the coalition you agree to have your name and personal information added to our private database. Your information will never be released to a third party without your permission. If the coalition should find it absolutely necessary to release your name in the course of assisting it's members you may receive an email requesting your permission.  Any such instance will be authorized by the Rosh Hayeshiva R’ Malkiel Kotler shlit”a beforehand.
The success of this endeavor is contingent on enlisting as many non-vaccinating families as possible. Please take the time to reach out to your friends and family who don’t vaccinate and encourage them to join.

To join, please visit Alternatively you can join by emailing or call/ text 732-806-7739
Do people lose respect for gedolim that agree to stuff like this? Or is it a, they just don't know science how the world works outside torah type thing, but for torah related stuff they are still a gadol?

Famous question with the rambam and medicine, just wondering practically about now a days.

Research yeshiva statistics (as well as all schools) for students who attended prior to 1980, their ability to learn, as well as their behavior.
As oppose to היינטיגע צייטען with kids who are loaders up with stuff.
There are a million things that changed, why do you believe this supposed correlation is the cause? Why not go to more likely possibilities like screen time or eating organic food?

We should not be in the business of labeling people who Gedolim (in this case Rav Ovadya) paskened are Jewish as Safek Jews.
Nor should we be in the business of labeling people who the gedolim (in this case Rav Shach, Rav Elyashiv, Rav SZ Auerbach, Rav Moshe) paskened are Safek Jews as full fledged Jews.

Re: Interesting Articles... This morning my local grocery store ran out of milk. I issued the following statement:

Klal Yisrael is facing a great challenge today - the anti-semitism we have faced and the oppression we are facing now all stems from an anti Semitic comment made by the store owner, <Name redacted> after Yehuda57  received assurances there would be milk from the manager, <name redacted>. After the assurance was given, he said, "He must not have seen our stock fridge." It is times like this, that Klal Yisrael needs to unite for social justice against corruption and the enemies of the Jewish people. We ARE moving forward with breakfast and have alternative almond milk. Additional alternative milk is being obtained from the grocery store across the street which Yehuda57 was too lazy to guy buy initially. We are asking all guests to come and take part in the breakfast in protest of the injustice that has come upon us. If not now, when? When the Jewish people forgo their doubts and stand up for truth - HaShem is with them. We are Am Yisrael - and it is moments like these that define who we are as a people. All aspects of the breakfast are in place and will move forward as planned - the only thing we are missing is your presence here, and your support. There are already 100 people+ here that are taking a stand - will you be part of this cause? We need YOU and the breakfast will go on with you. Three holy tzaddikim in our time have all urged us to go forward with this event - Come now- the cereal will be here as planned, all services and all acts will take place as planned. COME- they can try to hurt the few, but they cannot the many. We have overwhelming support and many more people are coming now then ever before to stand up for our right to celebrate our love for G-d. Stay alert to our posts - we will keep you updated.

Re: Interesting Articles...
How is a hashkafa that equates serving meat with serving traifos "essentially harmless"

And that is just an example from the part of the article they put online which is the only part I read.

The larger issue is the fact that they (and many other organizations) hide behind nameless "Rabbinic boards". If you aren't willing to stand behind your "supervision" it is completely meaningless.

Like “approved by noted mechanchos”. Meaningless.

More white people call him out more than any other race.
When a term has a history rooted in racism you just don't use it when it comes to that race. If you do then the obvious conclusion is you are a racist. Not sure what is so hard for a non-racist to understand. Maybe that is the problem?  :)
we can have a civil conversation about this without anyone implying that whoever doesn't see things the way i do must be a racist.

Re: Chabad Minhagim: Pros & Cons

Not sure why that's sinas chinam. It can just as easily be bias or stubbornness. Sinas chinam would be hating a fellow jew. I can think of many groups of jews that have criticisms on other groups but do not hate them. And some of those criticisms would be called by many others absurd.
Basically, Cbc thinks chabad is crazy and views them through that prism.

Re: US Politics/2016 Election Pick Your Poison Master Thread
What are you talking about. Of course both sides want to inject politics just like you. I want politics out of it and a fair investigation. How is that bias?
You can want politics out as much as you like but it does nothing. I also would love for politics to be out of it. That does nothing. Just because you don't want politics involved doesn't mean that the actions of the politicians should be ignored. Without the politics there would definitely be no investigation since it is past the statute of limitations. The facts are that it is unfortunate but very little but political at this point. Saying to keep politics out of it when that only benefits one side politically and that happens to be the side you are biased for is not despite bias but a product of it no matter how much you convince yourself otherwise.  It is not a coincidence that everyone's opinion here lines up perfectly with their political biases including yourself.

Awful response. Ignore the clear message Hashem is saying , and bang Mezuzos wherever.

Secondly , we can try to add light to the world, with Mezuzos etc.
Dude there could be more than 1 message but it's good that you only see the message that doesn't apply to you. If you would look a little deeper you might find a message for yourself too

Definitely a good turn of events for the Brooklyn real estate market — on which a sizable percent of the Brooklyn OJ community rely on — which started to turn sour over the last few months, this will at the minimum erase the slow down and stabilize the rental market
A far, far greater number of the Brooklyn OJ community stand to be screwed. But sure, celebrate the fact that a newlywed couple will struggle to find a 1 bedroom apt for less than 2,000 a month.

Thiomersal was actually removed from almost all children's vaccines, besides for some flu shots, as a precautionary measure because of the mercury in it.
I don't think it was done as a precautionary measure but rather as a (futile, in the end) attempt to placate the anti vaxxers.

Re: Haters, Threats, And Trolls
From that TJB admin:

- Secondly, being around for much longer means nothing. Israel is around for just a few dozen years compared to other countries that have been around for hundreds. Does that make those other countries "better" because of how long they've been around? Does that mean those countries are entitled to something more so than Israel? Obviously not. I'd take quality of living in Israel than any of those. So Longevitiy is absolutely meaningless.

This has Nothing to do with any particular website . Look at the comments . They refer to Chilul Chabad . What a terrible Chilul Hashem . To switch Hashem for Chabad ! It’s heartbreaking.
Is this unique to that website ? Or is this a systematic problem ? If so , Are the Rabbonim of Chabad able/ willing to do something about this ?? Did this happen during the years of the Rebbe ??
 ( there is no way it could have  , He was A Tzadik Yesod Olam ! )

Sorry, there are no "brands". There is one gd and one people. Always has been until the modern chassidusim reinvented shilush..

It's not one gd with mekushorim malbushim connectors or attachments of flesh and blood (or what ever other other modern chassidus wants to phrase the minus as).
