COVID-19 Discussion Board / Help Me Find It: Covid Edition
« on: May 13, 2021, 08:11:57 PM »
1 - there was a video of an hour long shiur on why you need to get vaccinated (in Yiddish). Can someone please post the link?
2 - there were a ton of posts about Rabbonim who were/are pro-vax. Does anyone remember any from a Rov who specializes in medicine?


Americans can begin applying for $50 off their monthly internet bill on Wednesday as part of an emergency government program to keep people connected during the pandemic.

The $3.2 billion program is part of the $900 billion December pandemic-relief package. The government is increasing spending on broadband as the pandemic made stark that millions of Americans did not have access to, and could not afford, broadband at a time when jobs, school and health care was moving online.

It's unclear how long the money will last but it's expected to be several months. Tens of millions of people are eligible, although the Federal Communications Commission, which is administering the program, did not specify a number.

For example, your household is eligible if you receive food stamps, have a child in the free or reduced-price school lunch program, use Medicaid, or lost income during the pandemic and made $99,000 for single filers, or $198,000 for joint filers, or less.

There are other eligibility requirements, too see to find out if you qualify.

You can get the discount even if you owe your phone or cable company money. That's important because some people have been barred from low-cost plans offered by internet service providers when they owed their service provider money. More than 800 cellphone and home-internet companies are participating, including AT&T, Charter, Comcast, T-Mobile and Verizon.

Does humor stigmatize, or does it destigmatize? When is a joke over the line?

COVID-19 Discussion Board / Pregnancy and Covid
« on: February 01, 2021, 05:14:08 PM »
I've seen a number of posts suggesting that there is an increase in pregnant women being hospitalized, vented, or experiencing complications recently, possibly related to the new strains. Stories I've heard and tehillim requests I've seen seem to possibly back that up. Does anyone have any documentation on the subject? Stats, studies, articles... anything.

Just Shmooze / Mass Exodus From Liberal States
« on: October 23, 2020, 08:49:15 AM »

Over the last 4 months, my community in FL has grown over 5% (maybe even close to 10%). People have moved here from all over NY, NJ, MA, and MD. There are currently 15 more families looking to move in, but there are no houses for sale within decent walking distance to shul. My community is far from a hot commodity. Others around here have seen a much greater influx in recent months, with hundreds of families moving from CA alone.

Have you recently moved to FL?, or are you in the process of making the move? Do you know others who have moved already? Where have they moved to?
