Re: Will the truth come out how this administration made blunder after blunder?
Right, which is why it helps to have a leader that cares more about keeping people alive than good approval ratings. Alas, such people are hard to come by.
Conversely, it would help to have a media that cares more about keeping people alive than ratings and political agendas. Alas, such people are hard to come by.

Re: מי כעמך ישראל - Post your stories here All the teachers who are continuing to teach remotely by zoom or through whatsapp messages for those who don't have computers/enough computers in the home for the b'h number of kids in the family.

I know of an entire school of teachers who are teaching despite still waiting for their monthly paychecks for February.

School pays at the beginning of the month for the prior month and they have not gotten their checks despite teaching in classes until the Friday after Purim.

Still these Moros are giving daily lessons with smiles on their faces for all of the children in the school.

Re: Antisemitism related to Coronavirus
I can spend 100 pages (and I may have already) explaining why it's anti Semitic to blame Jews for anti semitism or why it's anti Semitic to make Jews behave differently to appease anti Semites, but clearly you don't see that point.
I see your point.

Re: Is your Shul Secretly Open Right Now?
I know the Rov of my shul and a few of other shuls as well, are keeping the shuls to themselves. They have a private shul, mikvah, and Sifrei Torah for them and their children. Technically speaking, there is nothing wrong or risky about having a minyan if done properly. The fear is that it won't be done properly.

Two issues with this.

1) Even if this minyan is being done properly, what happens when people see this and decide they can do it, too, without taking all the precautions?
2) What about Kavod HaTorah? How many people will now lose respect for this Rov and all that he stands for because they can't follow their own psak and lead by example?

הכל בידי שמים חוץ מיראת שמים

More relevant, and I havenít seen mentioned on DDF, is הכל בידי שמים חוץ מצנים ופחים. I take this to mean that no matter how pious one is (Mikvah, Minyan, etc), if they donít take the necessary precautions they could still get sick.

Re: Unemployment Help
What's the earliest day ui can be filed for? The current online form seems to point at 04/20/20. Can an earlier date be filed for/collected? Was just furloughed starting 04/01
Make sure when you file your initial application do indicate last day worked as 4/1 so that you don't run into troubles when seeking backpay.

Re: Delta to tlv opening May 8 Also in regards to the charter that everyone is discussing, I believe that the harshest criticism should be directed at El Al. (I can't speak for the seminaries because I honestly have no idea what they were charged - but El Al definitely charged a fortune)
They went ahead and consolidated flights (to 50%) for the week after Purim, causing the massive shortage of inventory and blocked all inventory for the remaining flights. Which caused massive panic. And suddenly (I don't even think it was 48 hours from when they canceled the flights until they rescheduled as charters) they were chartering their planes for those exact dates for double the price and only one direction! El Al was very aware about the massive demand westbound, but were being stingy because they knew they would be returning mostly empty. But with the charters, they were charging enough for them to cover the cost to fly both directions nearly twice!
El Al has turned their back on literally everyone during this crisis. From travel agents to passengers to all their employees... Ignoring the DOT's instruction to refund all canceled flights by claiming that they're closed and all their offices are closed... But apparently they're only closed when it comes to giving money and paying employees, because when it comes to rescue flights or cargo they seem to be open as ever making loads of money!

Re: Corona virus and your shul
I always wondered why Jews were blamed for the black death.
Always assumed regular anti-semitism, but it makes a little more sense now :(

There's still plenty of anti-semitism, but we need to do better.
Et tu?

I just can't anymore.
