I had a magid shuir (aka Rabbi) that his previous job was a fundraiser, he said that he once went to rebbi moshe green's yeshiva and he was peaking through the front door he wanted to see how the buchorim were learning, r moshe green saw him standing there he asked him why don't you come in, he responded that I would like to see it but he doesn't want to make bitul Torah, r' MG said don't worry about it you can come in and if a bochur can't learn because a fremda walked in doesn't belong in my yeshiva

The letter mentions four problems with the visit, none of them being bittul torah.
Google Sheet with Lakewood Covid numbers in profile for those interested.

Bitul torah is an issue, and campaigning in a yeshiva and sitting down with bochurim is bittul torah, it just reminded me of that story
but other will argue ais laasois

Don't they bring in politicians there all the time? They have the right to limit who can come, but just write that on the letter. Don't say it's because of Bitul Toirah if you do the same.

First of all, they didn't say bitul torah

Do they usually bring people running for office as part of their campaign, or just elected officials as a way of developing their relationship with them?

You're right, but that just makes it worse.

I guess you must be more sensitive to bitul torah then them

Can you reference a particular time a candidate came to yeshiva to campaign? (especially in a public fashion like this)

I'm having a hard time digesting murphy's response to jack about  NJ broken school funding formula
"well if you change it you'd take away funding from brown and black neighborhoods"
what a disgrace

you should govern colorblind not by choosing 1 color over the other

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office.

therefore BMG created the VAAD which will tell you there opinion

I assume the pundits will call it a draw. I thought Jack was better, but I like Jack better, so that's a natural reaction.

I think this screenshot sums it up. Ciatterelli sounded levelheaded to me, while Murphy sounded grumpy
Iíve only met Governor Murphy once. That being said, he came across as a dolt. And IMO he has to be one of the least charismatic politicians ever.
