Where's the fiction section?

LOL, I'm thinking this is classic Baal Shemske maaseh. I believe it could have happened.

Why the cynicism? It's a beautiful story, and there's no reason to doubt it's accuracy. Hashgacha Pratis is real.

Yisroel Besser is a reliable source. I can try to double check with him for more details, but why would anyone doubt him?

I have the video where he says over the story...It's still a second hand story though.

I don't doubt he heard the story. And I don't doubt most of the details. I just wonder if it's perhaps 2-3 stories combined into one story to make it come out neatly with a bow tied on top.

It's nice to see philanthropic intentions and actions. I wonder what's the efficiency of the grants (i.e. percentage actually going to the cause rather than enriching the executives and others).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

This might be very significant. Though I don't know if prior infection and/or vaccination status data were tracked.

What’s the significance? If everyone tested daily there’d be less spread, but it’s unrealistic and capacity/cost prohibitive.

The one who set the logic needs to resign, even according to star k you should've been able to set and then enter shabbos mode with the current settings, instead of doing it blindly
