Everyone should read Yair Rosenberg’s article in Tablet. He urges us to move all Simchat Torah services outdoors this weekend. It would require the city and the orthodox community to work together. We now know that large outdoor events do not result in mass spreading but that crowded indoors events do. This can be done and should be done.October 8, 2020 11:43 pm at 11:43 pm #1908474Ben LeviParticipant
I ask you again
a) Dr. Sunetra Gupta, an epidemiologist at Oxford University
b) Dr. Martin Kulldorff, professor of medicine at Harvard University
c) Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, a physician and epidemiologist at Stanford University
in a detailed public letter co-sgned with 2000 Public health scientists & health practitioners.
state that the data proves
“Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short- and long-term public health”
“Keeping these measures in place until a vaccine is available will cause irreparable damage, with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed”.
In other words the current lockdowns
are literally killing people.
as such allowing them to be implemented is a matter of Pikuach Nefesh.
Why are you not protesting Cuomo literally endangering lives.
Why are you not protesting De Blasio putting in place policies that some of the most pre-eminent names in their field say are dangerous?October 9, 2020 7:22 am at 7:22 am #1908507Ben LeviParticipant
According to that bastion of Conservatisim know as the NY TIMES in an article back on the Sep 29

“Today, all of the European countries are more or less following the Swedish model, combined with the testing, tracing and quarantine procedures the Germans have introduced, but none will admit it,” said Antoine Flahault, director of the Institute of Global Health, in Geneva. “Instead, they made a caricature out of the Swedish strategy. Almost everyone has called it inhumane and a failure.”October 9, 2020 9:50 am at 9:50 am #1908549Ari256Participant

The governor blindsided the Jewish community regarding closing shuls do you really think he wants “to work together” with the Jewish community
If he permitted something (even outdoors) that would be something we can work with but this is an outright onslaughtOctober 9, 2020 11:34 am at 11:34 am #1908560ChavieK120Participant
