Tzara’as and Coronavius
« on: March 17, 2020, 09:58:38 PM »
Some of the comparisons are just uncanny, the most obvious being isolation- hesger which can end up being for a period of 14 days (7+7). A metzorah covers his face (mustache). A metzorah does not join in communal functions. The Parsha of Metzorah (Tazria) is preceded by the prohibition of eating bats and other shekatzim (Emor) etc. etc.

R' Chaim didn't pull lashon harah and rechilos out of thin air. There is lamdus behind it.

What is astounding to me is that klal yisroel is experiencing arguably the biggest upheaval of its kind in 2000 years- never have the batei kineisoyos, batei midrashos, and batei sefer been shuttered ACROSS THE GLOBE simultaneously ( there was always המחנה הנשאר לפליטה)- and all everyone is talking about is what to cook for pesach!

HELLO, Hashem is calling out loud and clear; his handiwork is all over this. What the message is is beyond my pay grade but you better believe there is a message and it is not the message that 7.5 billion people on this planet are taking from it. It is a message squarely directed at a tiny nation called Klal Yisroel.

Anybody with brains understands that this has the potential to be a momentous occasion, hopefully an eis ratzon if we are zoche with our tefillos, or Chas veshalom....

Bottom line is we are in a stupor and we had better wake up.

What in the world are you smoking ?

The shulls are still open because what do a few apikorshe doctors know.

Oh my God, isolation for a few weeks is terrible!!

Exactly! When you stop and think of everything going on it's astounding.

I'm surprised this does not have more activity. What are you rabbonim saying?

I heard 2 points recently:

1) People still talk in shul and perhaps even worse, they sit on their phones for most of the time and even worse some don't even take their airpods out for shemoneh esrei. nebach. So Hashem threw us out of shul  :'(

2) On a better note, this coming Shabbos might be the first Shabbos ever that no one in Israel will be driving. The whole country is at a standstill.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

This point is so amazing and true.
 
Another point is by making minyanim down to 10 people have stopped talking during davening.

Your point has zero to do with what cmey said.
May you slide down the banister of happiness & get many splinters of success up your career.
