I think he does a great job. He should resign from politics and become Israel's PR (or create a Ministry of PR and give him a fancy office and a 6 figure salary)
He definitely doesn't need the money. Kovod on the other hand...

Over 2k entries already, mi k'amcha yisroel!

In particular there is one 'Jewish' news site that thrives on click bait/ knowingly false articles and gruesome images of every tragedy. This site needs to be boycotted and shut down.

Can the discussion on how this happens be split off?

We are loosing focus from the terrible tragedy and focusing on the wrong things here.

I recently spoke to someone I know whose Kollel husband is not Arevim eligible.
Please don't mix Areivim into a life insurance thread.

IMHO, rhetoric like this does just as much damage. It erodes trust in the establishment as a whole. As always, nuance is important.

You have a valid point in that it is in the best interest of our communities for salesmen to start focusing on getting someone insured with term before even thinking about pushing other products. Hopefully agents who use this approach will gain the trust of the community and people will use them for other products, as well.

We also have to stop turning every call for people to get term into a full-blown investment strategy debate. Get life insurance. Full stop. People needing to speak to a financial advisor is a different conversation.
Agree 1000%

Get everyone 21 y/o who gets married a term plan. Then all the brokers and financial planners can push their businesses after.

We can't turn our young people off by overcomplicating the need and availability of basic term.

I think this thread is the reason so many young people don't have life insurance.

The average 21 y/o who went through the Yeshiva system and gets married, knows that he has a responsiblity to purchase some term insurance. What turns these young people off is the snake oil insurance salesmen pushing WL and other funds which is not explained properly or in the customers best interest.

Finding a new agent might be the answer but many young people will just say that they're young and healthy and they'll get insurance when they are a little older and more educated. By then they are 40, marrying off kids and will have a much harder time getting the coverage they need.

If someone really wants to change what's going on out there, there needs to be some basic life insurance education offered (in post EY Yeshiva's?) and some affordable, basic, easy to understand plans available. Yes, people are stupid and lazy but we need to reach these people so there isn't a Charidy every day!

Is there a way to limit the number of new topic a member can start in one day? It's getting out of control...
