Re: Bill D’Blasio Warns "The Jewish Community"
No but understand the reason. Are you comparing how African Americans are treated by police with how Jews are treated by the police?
*how Jews are being treated by police now in NYC? Yes

Re: Bill D’Blasio Warns "The Jewish Community"
Not if they feel they are hotspots.
Hotspot as having problems. I understand what everyone is saying. I am just saying they are covered on this one.

Just imagine that he had sent out a tweet warning "the black community and all communities" then the next day the police were sent out in force to "hotspots" but only the ones that just happened to all be majority black.

Re: Areivim USA - Coronavirus
I was referring to single members with no kids yet or older members who have married off all their kids. If they are the tzedaka they market themselves as and not LI, they should have significant membership from both demographics.

Somehow I’m skeptical. Without any transparency we’ll never know.

Re: Re: 5 Towns/Rockaway Master Thread
I see it worked. You are scared.

First of all, the entire social distancing thing is not proven to help at all. Many experts believe it actually harms the situation.

Second of all, in NYS all deaths are considered Covid deaths now, even without being tested for Covid. They do this in order to keep the numbers high. In addition, if during flue season they would run around testing people to see if they are asymptomatic to the flue, we would have an even higher number of flue patients and even deaths.

Our numbers are down now. When Cuomo says we have 290 deaths, he means that's how many people died that day in NYS. He does not tell us how many people die on a regular fie before this plague or during the flue season.. There are also many deaths in nursing homes daily. Those deaths are greatly due to Cuomo's executive order sending elderly Covid patients to the homes instead of the hospital. He sent them to a facility where everyone  there was supsestable to the worst.

At this point, at least 85% of NY was exposed. There is very little danger davening with a minyan or walking withut a mask. It's mainly media and democratic hype.
You’re completely off your rocker. I was following this conversation without knowing the internal community politics and I thought you sounded somewhat ignorant.. and then this.

Are you nuts?! Are you seriously still spewing this stuff? How many Rabbanim, doctors, friends, and relatives do you need to lose before you WAKE UP?!

If it walks like a nut, and talks like a nut, your opinion just doesn’t count at all. I wouldn’t care ordinarily but you’re endangering other people. I see why that Rav called the police. YOU. ARE. NUTS.

Almost everything you said cN be said back to you from the other side. Including, they would say, that you are endangering people's lives by banning minyanim and albeit not their fault closing Yeshivas. There is a G-d factor which should take a roll here too. Without Him this won't stop. If it can be done in a safe way, one real good Amen Yehei Shmei Ramah is more powerful than all the medical intervention.

You are proving my point. One side understands there are two side, and take a position. But some on the other side have an agenda and therefor cannot even hear there is an argument here.
No, you literally aren’t. I davened Shacharis with a minyan today for the first time in months after consultation with a Rav and doctor in a safe manner on my property with us and a neighbor, and I don’t live in 5T. I fully understand and appreciate daas Torah deciding to permit some Minyanim AFTER becoming informed of the facts on the ground and consulting with medical experts. I have nothing to do with your politics or the Rabbanim in your city.

All that said, you are spewing such dangerous garbage that you need to be called out. I get it, you’re ignorant of the facts. But you DON’T get to have an opinion if you don’t do the research first.

How can you have the audacity to refer to this as anything remotely similar to the flu? Have you completely lost your way in life? How often do this many people you know and love die in one fell swoop? You think the media killed them? The “more modern” Rabbanim? Who exactly do you blame for their deaths? You know who it was? YOU and your actions.

Hashem does not want your Tefilllos betzibur if you are endangering other people. Your Amein Yehei Shmei Rabbah is a mitzvah habah be’aveira, and is WORSE than staying silent, should you be needlessly placing LIVES in danger. Don’t pretend to have God on your side, as if this is some grand debate between good and evil. Believe me, EVERY Rav who assured Minyan believes they are doing the right thing as far as Yiddishkeit is concerned (and they’re probably right). That doesn’t mean it’s not up for debate whether minyanim can occur in a safe manner, without endangering people. I’m not the Posek Acharon. It doesn’t matter who’s right or wrong. What matters is that you’re too thick to understand the consequences of your actions and words, and are recklessly disregarding an obvious and overwhelming danger.

My friend you have a lot of issues but the gaivah one is particularly appalling. You have a greater appreciation of the power of amain yehia shmai rabbah than Rabbi Finer, Rabbi Brown, Rabbi Forst, Rabbi Perr, Rabbi Jeager, Rabbi Stern, etc. (I won’t mention any of the YU trained Rabbinim who most certainly do not come close to your stature).

Re: Re: 5 Towns/Rockaway Master Thread
It's not unanimous. Do your homework. In Daas Torah there is a machlokes. Most disagree with you, but you do have some great people to rely on.
There is NO MACHLOKES as to the danger, nor is there room for such. If anyone tells you otherwise, lock them in a room alone and throw away the key. There is only debate as to the proper method of dealing with it.
