i agree that the move for stop n shop is dumb. The new locations is terrible for everyday shopping. Its great for a lowes or a party city when you don't have to go every week or so

Why would that make a difference? I never quoted him or his opinion.

I'm sure someone from corporate looked into it. Might not be as good for you but I bet it's better for them.

You're disrespect for Rabbanim is disturbing. I'm curious who you would consider your Rav and what is position on this matter is.

Correct. I missed his bolding. This was not done in Europe and is not an accepted practice in most of the frum world.  Most ladies did not even attend shul in those days. If you have more information, kindly share.
It sure does have precedent. There were Chassidishe Rebbes who did not leave behind sons whose daughters said Kaddish after them. I know of multiple.

You seem comfortable enough to speak about other Rabbanim so you must know everything already. ::)

You can see the Nitei Gavriel, he brings down a few. I know of 2 that are not in there, as well.

I didn't speak or write about any Rabonim. Not sure what you are referring to.

I watched Dr. Glatt's "update" from last night. if he has any say, we're gonna be living like this for a while. (update in quotation marks because it's basically the same story as last week)

Itís incredible how the guy who so unbelievably wrong at the beginning of all of this is now the one that we are relying on.

Dr. Glatt was the one that said we shouldnít worry about this and go on with our Purim as normal. He also advised the schools to stay opened after Purim as well.

Are you a Doctor of infectious diseases? Who would you like to call the shots? The one with the most likes on DDF or who is in the most watsapp groups?  Rabbi Brown, Rabbi Jeager and Rabbi Forst (from the 3 biggest talmidi chachumim in our community) all agree with him. (Maybe they are all liberals too?)


Unless you have another qualified expert in the community - this man should continue to be calling the shots.

When there was no man to say Kaddish, a woman nearly always said Kaddish in Europe. When a woman said Kaddish in Rí Mosheís Shul in NY there was a move to stop her, he held them back and told them sheís doing what they did in my Shul growing up.. itís also brought down in the Mishna Berura that itís perfectly fine. I know itís not done in Lakewood or the like but itís a perfectly valid Halachic option.

Source please. My Rabeim who were from Europe told me woman did not even go to shul. I do not believe women said kaddish in Shul min most of Europe.
