Re: Maimonidies
And how do you think their attitude is affected by what they saw (see?) on the streets of BP with Manhattan shut down and 13th Ave full, minyanim continuing etc? Is that going to get them to want to work with you or not?
13th ave is pretty much deserted. It’s basically grocery shopping. I went down 18th ave past the jewish part, streets were full of Italians & Chinese.

Re: Maimonidies

In my opinion, this is a great idea, but with one minor alteration. The masses should come to the hospital with huge appreciation posters instead, thanking the medical staff for their hard work. Yes, it may be blatant falsehood. But it might actually accomplish something.

Like if you agree.
(Yes, I'm unabashedly asking for likes. I gotta feed my wife and kids somehow and desperate times call for desperate measures.)

Re: Weddings in next few weeks
This is not what you should be crying about. And tbh there’s nothing sad about it. The wedding industry has been one of the things holding people back from financial independence for a long time and I sincerely hope people take a lesson from this that it DOESN’T MATTER
The lack of empathy in this post....

Yeah, it's worth crying over not having your parents or grandparents by your wedding.

My grandmothers are missing their granddaughter's wedding next week. They've been praying and dreaming about being at her wedding for more than a decade. It's absolutely the correct decision. Doesn't make it any less heart breaking.

The wedding was beautiful in its simplicity. It was still breathtakingly sad at the same time.

Re: RIP/BDE Master Thread - COVID-19 related Every one  of the tens of thousands of individuals in Lakewood who found a shoulder to cry on, advice for legal trouble, help for parnassa issues- both with eitzos and with money, solutions to countless Halacha and practical issues that affected the Tzibur, and on and on, should be crying now with the petira of Rav Zeev Rothchild Zecher Tzaddik Livracha. So much of Lakewood stood on his shoulders. There was so much that wasn’t even known. There is no one who can replace him. A book can be written about his incredible works. Yehi Zichro Boruch.

Re: Jokes Master Thread Try it seriously dont cheat its amazing
ALL MUST TRY!!!!!!! ALZHEIMERS' EYE TEST

(I love this part..
It's absolutely amazing!)

Count every " F " in the following text:

FINISHED FILES ARE THE RE
SULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTI
FIC STUDY COMBINED WITH
THE EXPERIENCE OF YEARS...
(SEE BELOW)


HOW MANY ?

3....4....






WRONG, THERE ARE 6 -- no joke.
READ IT AGAIN !
Really, go Back and Try to find the 6 F's before you scroll down.


The reasoning behind is further down.





The brain cannot process "OF".

Incredible or what? Go back and look again!!

Anyone who counts all 6 "F's" on the first go is a genius.

Three is normal, four is quite rare.

Send this to your friends.
It will drive them crazy!!:
Good isn't it.. 👍

People have no idea how much he helped so many in this field. Most of it is personal and cannot be elaborated on, but he stepped up when others threw in the towel.

Re: מי כעמך ישראל - Post your stories here KIDDUSH HASHEM: Medtronic, the world’s largest manufacturer of medical equipment, is currently receiving large amounts of attention for its ventilator. This week, the CEO of the company's Israel division, Yaron Yitzhari, made the decision to release all of Medtronic’s patents for the production of ventilators, in order to enable any company wishing to manufacture them to use Medtronic’s blueprints, for free. Wasn’t he concerned about the potential loss of profit for his company, almost certain to run to the millions of dollars? “In the present situation, I’m proud to work at Medtronic,” he replies. “Our goal is to prolong lives – to save lives, in fact. This is what’s needed right now, in the emergency situation we’re in, and this consideration comes before everything else. These are unusual times, and they demand of us to act in unusual ways. So, when it comes to calculating the financial impact, it has negligible weight, because the main thing is saving lives, and that’s what our company knows how to do.”

Re: Weddings in next few weeks
The chosson and kallah can't be expected to understand that
i would say as one myself that a good amount of us are looking at the situation with the perspective is that whats the most important thing getting married or doing it in a nice hall with all your family and friends and while it may be hard we are happy to make the best of the situation we are put in and not let all the (close) secondary priorities get in the way of the biggest day in our lives

Grief / Aveilus Discussion I am not sure if this the right forum to post this, or if it will be helpful, or if it's even just a rant.

A decade ago, my mother passed away after her fourth battle with cancer. 15 months later, my father passed as well from a heart issue. Right at the end of kaddish for my Mom, I was talking in shul to another Avel about my mom's pending unveiling. An older gentlemen in my shul, a survivor, overheard our conversation and said - "Ich ben M'Kaneh zein" - I'm jealous of you - at least you have a grave to visit!

Shiva, Shloshim, and Kaddish helped me through the process. It made me feel proactive in honoring my parents, and helping me heal. As an out-of-towner, minyan was sometimes a struggle, since my options were fewer (Mincha involved driving 20 minutes each way for a minyan). And yet, whatever my struggle, I seems like I was spoiled, that I took this opportunity for granted.

I have several friends who unfortunately had protracted shivas due to Yom Tov, (some not even lasting more than an hour), and some of them feel that they missed out on that part of the mourning process.

How many people out there are in middle of their year of aveilus, being denied the opportunity to say kaddish for a loved one? How many can't give proper levaya to their loved ones? How many aren't getting the benefit of sitting shiva? Some don't even have the last opportunity to say goodbye.

I am not a shrink, I am not educating in counselling in any way. I just want you all to know going through this that:
a) this is hard
b) hashem will help you get through this
c) I am open to talking whether you think it will help or not. (I will do my best to answer PMs if you want to do this privately).

I will leave you with one final thought: Years ago I spoke to a psychologist who was helping people with PTSD from Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. He pointed out to me that in the text of the Mi-Sheberach, Refuas Hanefesh (healing of the soul) comes before Refuas Hagoof (healing of the body) - showing that Judaism understands and acknowledges that there is a mental and spiritual aspect to healing as well.

May all those who need a refuah, be granted a refuas hanefesh and refuas hagoof.
