    Might have something to do with them “doing” Yom Kippur Katan.

    Of course I registered and I assume everyone does. You MISSED a small potential penalty for not registering:

    You may be prosecuted and face a fine of up to $250,000 and/or jail time of up to five years. (!!!!!!!)

    Completely unrelated, but I really wish theyeshivaworld “coffee room” would have a “like” button for comments so one can express they agree with one or more posters (or disagree if you add a “dislike” button) without having to otherwise repeat one side or viewpoint again. I believe if would show a clearer picture of where the collective thought of the group is on a particular subject.

    If you mean Chassidish communities that ALSO have at least one chassidish school the list gets a lot smaller.

    IMHO is it a stale rumor at this point. I will believe it when I see it.

    You may be photographed in public places as there is no expectation of privacy is such areas. You also may publish a person’s likeness (obtained in a legal way) so long as it is not for commercial gain and is not slander. One might argue that neither is present in the situation you point to so long as the posters stick to the facts and do not call the attendees “anti vaxxers” and only state that they attended an event purporting to support such a position.

    Alright I rarely comment on these threads but the Ivory Tower from which many commentators are coming from on here needs a check.
    1. The frum Baltimore Jewish community is large, vibrant, young and inviting. Come for a visit and see for yourself. The proportionality of younger/older families (while there are plenty of both) leans very much to the younger side more (which I interpret as very good sign for the long term).
    2. The whole argument about crime is silly; there is minimal non-violent petty crime common in almost any urban environment (and then even this MOSTLY only within City limits). At this point many (if not MOST) of the community lives in the County which has a much more engaged police force and almost NO crime in comparison (and I reiterate that the City is quite safe).
    3. There are SEVERAL excellent schools that I (almost) guarantee will meet your needs for both boys and girls, elementary and high school/mesivta (except for chassedisha)
    4. There are SEVERAL shuls that I (almost) guarantee will meet your needs
    5. The job market has amazing breadth and the mean rate of pay is higher than many locations (on a MEAN basis). The federal government provides HUGE amounts of economic stability to the area generally. No major highs but no major lows either.

    1. Due to its proximity to Washington DC, there are plentiful jobs both within the Federal Government and ancillary to it.
    2. The cost of living, while high compared to many smaller midwestern communities, is relatively palatable.

    @think 2 I can definitely relate. I went to a yeshiva that was very strict and, at least for me, too strict. I begged my parents to let me change yeshivos but they thought I was just being too easy on myself. They now regret that decision.
    I have trauma from the experience and I definitely have “guilt” whenever I do things like listen to the news on the radio, eat at a restaurant, etc… all such things were strictly ASSUR in yeshiva.

    There is a LOT more to articulate here…but simply put, YES I CAN RELATE.

    Dina D’malchusa Dina is a medina shel chessed I believe can hugely affect halacha.
    Deracheha Darchei Noam
    Darchei Sholom

    All of the above can heavily influence “halacha” not allowing a issur or prohibiting an aseh but can shape how such things are carried out for sure.
