“2cents, please be nice. Reb Eliezer’s argument did have substance.”
Its great to have a decent discussion with a focus on substance and content, but I try to stay away from silly arguments such as this.
“Your post is not worth 2scents. ”
The content of his post was already addressed by another poster earlier.
The point about doctors having experience in infectious and disease, that is about assessing and treating not about how to control a pandemic. As has been evident by a lack of clarity from public and private health officials on what actions to do that would contain the virus, and despite taking a number of measures a lot of areas such as NY and EY have been hit extremely hard.September 13, 2020 7:34 pm at 7:34 pm #1901177
se2015 -“commented that trump supporters have blind belief in positions he takes (hence obsession with hcq despite global medical consensus that it is ineffective or at least that potentials risks outweigh potential benefits
I said he should at least stop lying to his supporters. You don’t calm a nation in crisis by denying the severity of the crisis. That leads to reckless behavior, especially by people who are inclined to believe him.”
I answered this already. Most Trumpers think for ourselves:
“The biggest Joke is – I don’t hang on to every word he says.
The main ones who do that are Anti- Trumpers. They are looking to find anything wrong that he says. Most Pro-Trumpers have better things to do.
We are Not like the DemonCrat sheep, we actually think for ourselves!”
We don’t Rely on Trump to be our Mommy!
Another Joke is – if you Need a Mommy to tell you what to do in Life – Biden can’t even think for Himself, let alone the Whole Country!
FYI, I haven’t seen any Medical Evidence that HCQ + Zinc doesn’t work for Covid19, when started within a Few Days.
So you Anti – Trumpers can Keep on Dreaming!September 14, 2020 7:46 am at 7:46 am #1901287
Mrs Plony: ” I recall a chapter in A House Full of Chessed where Rebbetzin Machlis kept bringing her baby to have his bilirubin tested so he could have his circumcision on the eighth day, and miraculously his levels fell to an acceptable number just in time”
She was getting his bilurubin tested so the MOHEL would agree to do the bris. As far as every doctor in the world is concerned this obsession with jaundice is one big narishkeit, and there’s no reason not to circumcise a baby who’s bright yellow.September 14, 2020 7:47 am at 7:47 am #1901288
“Reb Eliezer”, of course I saw the article you linked. I commented on it. It was FALSE the first time, and it’s still FALSE. It’s a stupid amhoratzus, nothing more. But now I know that you never bothered to look the BHL up yourself, which means it’s dishonest of you to pretend to quote it. If you got the information from a YWN article then that is your source, not the BHL. To quote a source you have to have seen it yourself.September 14, 2020 7:48 am at 7:48 am #1901289
“Reb Eliezer”, you’re also wrong about doctors being able to pasken to eat on Yom Kippur. NO DOCTOR HAS THE RIGHT TO GIVE A HETER TO EAT. If you need a heter you must ask a ROV, not a doctor. The ROV should ask the doctor for his opinion, and then decide the halocho taking into account what the doctor says. But the doctor himself cannot pasken, and you cannot eat just because the doctor said so.September 14, 2020 7:48 am at 7:48 am #1901290
Oh, and by the way, the story with Reb Yisroel Salanter is a bobbe maiseh. It never happened, and you certainly can’t derive any halochos from it.September 14, 2020 9:59 am at 9:59 am #1901378
milhouse, You seem to know everything better than anyone else, so your gaava causes you to know less. I saw the BHL and Rav Chaim Shlita interprets it as the camphor was placed in a mask to hold it, but the mask itself currently is certainly beneficial. In our shul in Staten Island, no mask, no attendance. If you want to be easily mekayem the mitzva of love you neighbor like yourself, wear a mask, so not to infect others.September 14, 2020 10:07 am at 10:07 am #1901386September 14, 2020 10:30 am at 10:30 am #1901393
Before giving the sick to eat, he should be reminded by ‘anyone’ that today is Yom Kippur.September 14, 2020 12:18 pm at 12:18 pm #1901437

A doctor cannot pasken that it has the halachik status of sakanas nefashos. I had family members who had chronic illnesses and each fast they would speak to the doctor and then relay the doctors words to the rav for a psak. There were times when the rav spoke to the doctor directly. Every time you bring this up it surprises me.September 14, 2020 1:45 pm at 1:45 pm #1901457
Milhouse -“If we were to ask the doctors there would be no such thing as a delayed bris for yellowness, and the whole halacha about it would have been long forgotten. We ask only a mohel who has received the tradition from the mohel who trained him, and we disregard the unanimous advice of all doctors that postnatal jaundice is no reason to delay circumcision.”
Quite Frankly – Your post is One of the Most Ignorant I’ve ever seen in the CR!
Do you know why people with Symptoms go to Medical Prof.?
Let’s start with Neonatal Jaundice:
“we disregard the unanimous advice of all doctors that postnatal jaundice is no reason to delay circumcision.”
This is the Most Absurd Post that I’ve seen in the CR for a long Time!
I personally went to the Mohel first to check out how Yellow the baby is.
The Mohel decides what to do Next.
Sometime they say wait; sometimes they say go to your doctor or hospital.
There are many Types of Neonatal Jaundice.
So NO Med. Prof. will say circumcize w/o doing Testing First!
“A baby whose blood type isn’t compatible with that of their mother can develop a buildup of antibodies that can destroy their red blood cells and cause a sudden rise in bilirubin levels.
Other causes of newborn jaundice include:
bruising at birth or other internal bleeding
an enzyme deficiency
an abnormality in your baby’s red blood cells
What are the symptoms of newborn jaundice?
The first sign of jaundice is a yellowing of a baby’s skin and eyes. The yellowing may begin within 2 to 4 days after birth and may start in the face before spreading down across the body.
Bilirubin levels typically peak between 3 to 7 days after birth.
When to call a doctor:
Most cases of jaundice are normal, but sometimes jaundice can indicate an underlying medical condition. Severe jaundice also increases the risk of bilirubin passing into the brain, which can cause permanent brain damage.
Contact your doctor if you notice the following symptoms:
The jaundice spreads or becomes more intense.
Your baby develops a fever over 100°F (38°C).
Your baby’s yellow coloring deepens.
Your baby feeds poorly, appears listless or lethargic, and makes high-pitched cries.”September 14, 2020 1:46 pm at 1:46 pm #1901462
The doctor as paskened in SA above recognizes if the person is even at a safek life and death status and I don’t see anywhere a Rav required to make the decision. Please someone point out a posek (gadol) who requires that. Chronic is a long duration illness so it needs a halachic decision whether one can fast.September 14, 2020 1:46 pm at 1:46 pm #1901463
Yeserbius123 -“I haven’t seen any evidence that rubbing raw beets between your toes doesn’t work for Covid19 when started within a Few Days.”
If you C’V get Covid19, so go for your Tx. Let’s know the Results.
But I tell e/o in the High-risk category to take HCQ + Zinc, if they can get it.
Btw, I’m Not surprised that YWN and other Frum websites are posting Every Week, Lo Aleinu, deaths from Covid19, they Must have Done your Treatment!September 14, 2020 1:48 pm at 1:48 pm #1901495
Based on doctor, you feed a person a little and see how they react whether he says I need more. If he says no, you feed him another small amount in the specified time. If he says yes, you feed him normally.September 18, 2020 1:32 pm at 1:32 pm #1902811
@Health There is a lot of evidence that HCQ doesn’t work. There is no evidence that HCQ+Zinc works. Baruch Hashem doctors have found regimes and treatments, including the drug Remdesivir, that there are mountains of data towards their effectiveness. So much so that the US has one of the lowest rates of death for people with COVID-19 in the world.
But do you know what’s more effective? Not getting it in the first place! Dying is only the worst thing that can happen to a person, but there are still other bad things that can happen. Many individuals with COVID-19 still experience horrific symptoms, some that last for months or are even permanent.
Even though US doctors have become experts at staving off people from dying of COVID-19, the US still has one of the worst death rates in the world because so many people have got the virus. And hospitals are still full of not-dead people too sick to breath on their own.September 18, 2020 5:47 pm at 5:47 pm #1902876
Yeserbius123 -“There is a lot of evidence that HCQ doesn’t work.”
It doesn’t work by itself.
“There is no evidence that HCQ+Zinc works”
That’s a matter of opinion. That’s the Gov. opinion. They are probably Wrong!
There are many doctors and others that say it works.
“But do you know what’s more effective? Not getting it in the first place!”
Tell that to NY area Jews & Israeli Jews.
I was out yesterday in Lakewood & almost no one was wearing Masks.September 20, 2020 11:02 pm at 11:02 pm #1903020
Gevald! Are you serious? No one wearing masks? Mistoma, you’re talking about outside, presumably they put them on when they went in where the danger is much greater. So many Yeshivas had to close because of COVID spreading from unmasked talmidim. We all had a great Rosh Hashana and hopefully our tefilos went to Hashem’s ears to remove this machla of COVID-19 so people can stop getting sick and schools, shuls, Bais Yaakovs, batei midrashim, and Yeshivos no longer have to close to prevent people from getting sick.
HCQ+Zinc may work or it may not, but COVID-19 is still a deadly virus and we shouldn’t have to be somech on medicine like Remedisvir or ventilators. Especially when people fall gravely ill before they even know that they have it.September 21, 2020 8:45 am at 8:45 am #1903032
Yeserbius123 -“Mistoma, you’re talking about outside, presumably they put them on when they went in where the danger is much greater”
Sheker right after Rosh Hashana! I was in stores too. The ones Not wearing them – Didn’t put them on when they went inside.
They had a letter from all the Docs, but it seems every store/Shul makes their own Rules. E/o knows the Matzev better than the Next Guy!September 21, 2020 10:49 am at 10:49 am #1903119
I feel terrible about that. There are so many people so sick that they can’t wear masks? Why davka Lakewood? Is there a lot of asthmatic people there?
I mean, considering Lakewood Rabbonim hold that people should follow the advice of Dr. Shanick and wear masks indoors, this must be something serious if so many unhealthy people who cannot wear masks are being forced to leave their homes in the midst of a pandemic!
Just last week we heard stories of previously healthy people who are now gravely ill due to catching COVID-19. Baruch Hashem it seems we will not have a repeat of six months ago will nebech so many meisim. Hashem has given doctors the knowledge how to treat most patients.
But we still have to be vigilant shomrim and make sure we keep our distance and wear masks! We never know if we may have COVID and so we should try as hard as possible to make sure people around us don’t C”V end up in the hospital medicated.
הכל בידי שמים חוץ מצינים פחים
Everything comes from Hashem. But if we aren’t watching our own health and the health of our chaveirim, then the sickness comes from the hands of Man.September 21, 2020 2:20 pm at 2:20 pm #1903205
This has become a real phenomenon. There have been mask attacks in real life. I fail to see the point in it. Maybe It has become like a tribal symbol.September 21, 2020 2:21 pm at 2:21 pm #1903201
Yeserbius123 -“this must be something serious if so many unhealthy people who cannot wear masks are being forced to leave their homes in the midst of a pandemic!”
Who said they are Unhealthy?!?
They just don’t want to Wear them.
They decided that they know better than the Medical Professionals.September 21, 2020 2:22 pm at 2:22 pm #1903203
The story of Rav Yisrael Salanter is recorded in seforim.September 21, 2020 5:04 pm at 5:04 pm #1903232
@n0mesorah What is a mask attack?
@Health No I think you’re mistaken. Lakewood is a town of yungerleit and Rebbeim, not of medical professionals, certainly not people who know more about medicine than medical professionals. The people you saw must have been sick. Healthy people who can wear a mask, especially Bnei Torah, aren’t so callous about other people’s lives to walk around without a mask on. Could you imagine what would happen if we gave one hundred people a gun but only one was loaded? Most people are pretty sure their gun doesn’t have real bullets, and even if it did, it’s not likely they would hit someone, and even if it did, most gunshot victims survive, right? I don’t see Lakewood people doing that, so I have a hard time processing what you saw.
What do you think about it?September 21, 2020 7:34 pm at 7:34 pm #1903269
Yeserbius123 -“Lakewood is a town of yungerleit and Rebbeim, not of medical professionals, certainly not people who know more about medicine than medical professionals”
Not anymore. It’s just like BP, Willy, Monsey.
It has changed the last 30 years.
“aren’t so callous about other people’s lives to walk around without a mask on”
They do it because they are Ignorant.
Not because they want to be Callous!September 21, 2020 8:24 pm at 8:24 pm #1903273
Being attacked for wearing a mask.September 21, 2020 9:25 pm at 9:25 pm #1903301
@Health That’s really hard to hear. I feel comforted, as I’m sure do you, when I walk into shul and see everyone wearing masks. Seeing that I know that even if someone chas v’Shalom, is sick (with or without showing symptoms) it’s very unlikely they will get me sick. Ignorant people walking around without masks make me nervous, how many people could they unknowingly infect? It’s horrible! And like you said before, sure there’s medicine to treat it, but why should we have to rely on getting hospitalized when there’s a perfectly cheap, safe, reasonable, and more effective method?
@n0mesorah People don’t like having their reality questioned. If they decide not to wear a mask, they are afraid when they hear the reality that they are a danger to others. So they attack.
