I would like to compliment your tremendously helpful website! It allows those that want Kosher news to access it via you. Tizku L’mitzvos!
I would like to bring to your attention an alarming thing that happens in Eretz Yisroel that you should let our readership know. There is a shtick that many Ganovim have been employing to ransack Yungerleit’s homes. They go to the circuit box and shut off all of the electricity of the apartments. Then they come back and see which ones got turned back on. Those that did not get turned back on, shows the Ganovim,that the owners went away.The Ganovim are free to try their hand at breaking in an empty house! I have a friend that lost THOUSANDS of dollars of freezer food when he came back and saw his borken-into apartment. Everyone should be aware of this and try to turn the circuits of all the apartments just in case!
How can they turn off the circuits without breaking in in the first place?
pashuteh you haven’t been to E”Y in a long time, the circut boxes are outside the apartment doors in the hallway and anyone can go into them. One might also consider putting a lock on thei fuse box
please note: many bochurim are getting robbed in their diras when in yeshiva or out for shabbos. break ins are very popular & american kids are un prepared.
keep nyour money & valuables in yeshiva or more secure locations.
Especially during yom tov. Many robbers take advantage nkowing that frum people are in shul all day rosh hashana & yom kippur!
