Time for serious teshuva and achdus together ASAP
nothing just happens by coincidence. How much longer do you think we can just fool ourselves into thinking we can fool Hashem the king of kings ruler of the world into thinking that we don’t get his direct wake up call for serious teshuva? There’s no one else to blame but ourselves. This could’ve all been avoided if we just woke up immediately as soon as the coronavirus pandemic mageifa was just starting and done teshuva as a nation together. Just like they immediately did in NIneveh and in the story of Purim and their lives were saved.
May we all learn from them and start doing teshuva ASAP together so Mashiach can come alreadyJanuary 28, 2021 7:48 pm at 7:48 pm #1943505meir GParticipant
Can this be verified? In all fairness there are different attitudes to tthis heavy shaaloh , anecdotedly in ny despite no restrictions and high density very little serious cases among youth. However each mossad works with what their parent base can handle. In bp they would kill the admin for closing and out of ty pressure to
closeJanuary 28, 2021 9:00 pm at 9:00 pm #1943507
I still do not get it: why is everyone so much against doing mitzva of teaching their own children on their own, or in small groups? You davka need to cram thousands of kids in one building, exponentially increasing pandemic propagation in your own community?
Get 5 families together, and one of parents, or a hired person, could teach the group in one of your apartments. You have seforim, internet, food, electricity – you are in better conditions than Volozhin yeshiva was
Start discussing how to organize teaching – for those who can do it, rather than lamenting the situation. You can not daven for help if you are not doing your part.January 28, 2021 9:28 pm at 9:28 pm #1943527
quotation from a “sponsored content” on YWN ! anyone know of such a yeshiva/day school???January 28, 2021 10:08 pm at 10:08 pm #1943533
please share your own teshuva with us.January 29, 2021 12:01 am at 12:01 am #1943546January 29, 2021 12:01 am at 12:01 am #1943545January 29, 2021 9:22 am at 9:22 am #1943597GadolhadorahParticipant
There are anecdotal reports of several smaller and poorly funded yeshivos permanently closing due to Covid related issues. However, the OP seems to imply the numbers are much greater. Most are struggling with local shutdown orders and dealing with the same difficulties of distance/remote learning but I’m skeptical that large numbers involving major schools have closed their doors.January 31, 2021 1:28 am at 1:28 am #1943855
I think Hashem is telling us that we are taking too much for granted our days, and we should spend some time inside with our families, learn to appreciate them, talk to your spouses and kids, take them for walks, learn with them, model for them how to act calmly in difficult circumstances. This might be a first serious adverse event in this country after WW2. Several generations expecting daily great service.
I agree that many are not hearing the message and complaining about the service – schools are not opening, governor does not allow seudas mitzva, scientists are not clear about vaccine efficiency …January 31, 2021 9:44 am at 9:44 am #1943967CTRebbeParticipant
When an OP throws out a vague “fact” that is known only to him in order to generate repsonses it is called troling. Does he mean closed and utilizing zoom, does he mean closed for good? Does he have any evidence to back up his claim?
What does this mean? Please explainJanuary 31, 2021 10:36 am at 10:36 am #1944006

Sponsored content is NOT news. It is not journalism, it is NOT fact checked.
IT IS ADVERTISING. Someone or some organization with an agenda is putting forth a call for support or funds with their version of a story (which may or may not be the whole truth and nothing but the truth…you can tell I’m an attorney).January 31, 2021 10:33 pm at 10:33 pm #1944126
>> Sponsored content is NOT news
Are Jews allowed to post non-truths as advertisement? Is there a “puffery” exemption in halakhah?!February 1, 2021 12:31 am at 12:31 am #1944157
of course. so perhaps you’ll do all a favor and contact the advertisers and try verify …..please.
thank you in the name of all concerned jews. concerned for truth and for Jewish kinderlach
