Indeed, why? Seems nice
My first impression was that it makes it seem like we're trying too hard. The fact that you are putting out a professional video to say that we are compliant is in itself giving too much credence to the haters. The response has to come in from a more non-professional source, maybe like this: https://player.vimeo.com/video/402577985?utm_campaign=5370367&utm_source=affiliate&utm_channel=affiliate&cjevent=31631a9376e311ea83ff035d0a24060e

Also, the message is very muddled. Is it thanking health care workers? Is it a message about Lakewood's compliance? It doesn't give a steady message.

It could be that the video will have the desired effect, and overall, I think we could use every resource we can get our hands on to battle the hate. I just had mixed feelings about it.

Rockland county executive wants a containment zone declared for two zip codes. Anyone wants to guess which demographic lives in those zip codes?

https://abc7ny.com/amp/rockland-county-containment-zone-coronavirus-new-york-news-update/6073555/
It's worth noting that similarly Orange County executive wanted a containment zone declared for the town of Palm Tree. Coincidentally, they are made up by a similar demographic.

What does people don't know, that the "containment zone" in New Rochelle is basically what's now statewide

A few thoughts
1) anti-semites have barely evolved in the nearly 700 years since the Black Plague
2) as an individual never think that your action of either kiddush hashem or chillul hashem is no big deal, it is literally attributed to every person in your community

That the police breaking up several big weddings a week is a bunch of bunk.

Instead of shouting at each other on all these threads, maybe we can actually help change things.

Does anyone here know who arranges the funerals that were broken up today? You don't have to post here, but speak up. Being combative is not going to work, but perhaps if enough people speak up respectfully?

Last week thousands of people in Crown Heights "attended" the levaya of Reb Yisroel Friedman without any gatherings on the street. The car drove through all the streets and people stood on their porches, by their windows, etc.

This is pikuach nefesh. We have to prevent the possibility of people gathering at levayos or there will be more of them, r'l. This is not about what people are saying about us.

How do you speak up respectfully when people are told over and over NOT to congregate inside or out and they do it anyway, despite knowing that members of their own community are sick and dying, and that the whole world is watching them?

I don't think these people are going to listen to what you have to say no matter how respectfully it is stated. Maybe if people from their own community speak up that would help. That being said it is still wrong to shout and scream about them as all that accomplishes is שנאת חנם.

BTW both of these Rebbes were niftar from corona (at least according to ywn).

I hate that it's happening, but to give it some perspective: Yud Aleph Nissan and people are going to the Ohel. Can you imagine Gimmel Tammuz Nun Daled during a time like this? There'd be no talking to anybody. Let it take me with my Rebbe.
