so to sum it all up it’s R Elyahu Levine who says that they have a din ‘moiser’ vs. nomesorah who says not……… why you lookin at me!?
Mr. Mucho Macho Lawyer- Do you work for the media?! You took a quote from what I wrote (“the only frum people we know of”) without writing the rest of the sentence (”the only frum people we know of that still have the virus do not live remotely close to the nyc metro area”) and went on to rehash that your nephews uncle in southern Florida has it. Even for a lawyer that’s pretty bad!May 27, 2020 3:01 pm at 3:01 pm in reply to: Chasidus bans “informers” from using its facilities #1865470
R Eliyahu Levine Shlit”a (who was appointed by R Elyashiv to pasken the aguna shailos from 9/11) put out a letter that moisrim during this time have all the dinim of a moiser that appear in shulchan aruch (o”ch siman 55) and definitely are not mitztarif for a minyan……
ctlawyer- Thank you for proving my point! The only frum people we know of that still have the virus do not live remotely close to the NY metro area so we should really start opening up. (As an aside, judging by your comments and arguments I find it hard to believe your an actual trained lawyer).
Mr. Shnitzel- My question was not theoretical, we know that no one in the world got it twice yet (according to Dr. Glatt) so we know there’s immunity for at least 5 months and as far as elderly go….. why should we all be held hostage because the elderly have to be. (I really do feel for them, but I think they’ll understand)
Nomesorah- You missed the boat once again!! If in our circles we are finding that for the past 6 weeks people haven’t been getting it that would be good reason to open schools, shuls etc.. The fact that the numbers are rising in Alabama or Oklahoma (or even Harlem) is not a good reason to keep things closed. Especially if we are finding that as people have been getting more and more lax nothing has changed.May 25, 2020 2:15 am at 2:15 am in reply to: Lakewood Yeshivos closed because of Murphy not Corona. #1864327
Nomesora-“Virtually Zero” is a very good way of measuring things. We drive on highways at high speeds etc. because the risk is negligible compared to the alternative. and although many of the things we do in life have some risk factor involved, we take those risks using the seichel hashem gave us. “LIFE IS A SERIES OF CHOICES”. We never have and never will get to a point when there will be absolute safety in reopening schools,yeshivos etc. but at this point i think it is fair to say that for the people in the age group that will be affected the risk is well worth it.May 24, 2020 6:51 pm at 6:51 pm in reply to: Lakewood Yeshivos closed because of Murphy not Corona. #1864187
Pony: I know of a quite a few doctors that told rabbanim to open their shuls (with proper precautions) as well as roshei yeshiva that were told by doctors that it is safe to reopen. The notion that there is still a danger by opening shuls and yeshivos makes less and less sense as the days go on and it becomes more and more evident that the virus is practically gone. Hint: How many people can you name that were hospitalized from our community before pesach (Too many) vs. after pesach (virtually zero). I feel that at this point anyone that is still not davening with a minyan etc. is just using the virus as an excuse and has their priorities all messed up (like we heard- they all allow cleaning help in/shop in pizza shops etc.)
When the ‘experts’ say that even minyanim on separate porches can’t be done it’s time to realize where their priorities lie
