Older people are doing pre cautions shuls are not open like before. And younger people recover quickly. So yeah as long as the older population stays safe and it seems they have more sense then the younger generation in any case. As they are now more aware. Bh the numbers of frum world fatalities seems to have fallen.
Honestly unlike the goyim who need leaders . We bh have leaders. and President Trump nor any other goy should be viewed as our leader .And as long as they dont attack the jews or jewish interest. Then we really shouldnt be complaining. Voting only be wary of if the next candidate is friends with Iran and its views on Israel. If they are friends of the jews. That’s all we should care about. Hashem in His mercy gave us a ‘stupid president’ dont complain!! Just know we are in golus. And we need our leaders more and to connect with Hashem that much more.
What triggered this question? And yes it is a loaded one re kabbalah and chassidus
1. Yes Covid 19 is still around doesnt discriminate between frum or not frum etc.
2. There is no guarantee as this is still largely unknown even Drs are learning new things daily. That someone who had it once cant have it again.
3. It affects younger as well as older population however due to maybe older people’s immune system seems to have more fatalities. I am more concerned going into a hospital becoming a statistic then whatever else they say.
4. Younger children have worldwide but not common at present bh who have gotten it bad it has in some cases become fatal.
Yes we have to have Bitachon and sisyata dishnaya but we cant very reckless. Become educated and follow the health news. Particular attention to Israel if you dont trust your own country’s.
Whilst Trump appears to be an anti-government , anti institution gangster , accidental comedian and the accidental president by how he preaches and conducts himself in private as well as public a fool , I dont believe he is. Atleast when it pertains to himself that is. He gets tested daily and so do all his cohorts. He knows he is losing the battle with this virus and at this rate with the economy and with BLM (which I wont get into here) . However he wants to cheer the country on.
And at the end of the day and even at the beginning. He has protected and stood up for jews and their interests.
Forget what he says about testing or tasting. It’s up to us individuals to educate ourselves and look around at different states and Israel and build our own protections. Masks do make sense. 6ft distance makes sense. Washing hands well makes sense. Flying anywhere does not. Going to a crowded supermarket or store does not imho.
M1994 I can understand your pain and frustration.
Whilst In my days the shidduchim process didnt seem as complex . Today the shidduch arena has become that much more. And one can feel disillusioned.
Sadly there are many boys as well as girls even in their late 29s that I know of. Living in the same country, who are normal , healthy , frum Ehrlicha yidden but cant seem to make it work.
I know of a healthy wonderful chabadnik. Down to earth who attends minyanim leins and has great middos tovos. Whilst he only eats cholov yisroel and listens to only jewish music and reads only jewish books he does listen and watch documentarys. He is a warm outgoing American. He is 5-11tall has a beard neat and tidy. Currently studying online pursuing his tech degree. Will relocate anywhere. Tznius is important to him but so is a an assertive wife one that talks her mind he is looking for and one he can talk ove rshabbos table with. Not a monologue but a dialogue.
Let me know I charge nothing. Made a couple before bh. I am the undercover Shadchan
I had no feeling for my first but got engaged after proposal because all seemed good. It was in my mind why not?! It lasted two months! When my husband came along I felt something incredible . Even if nourishkiet. 30 yrs later it’s that magical feeling I had then that serves me when we have disagreements and reminds me that feeling that I had for no other date and has only grown bh. Is that our marriage is indeed made in heaven . As no-one in their right mind who know us both would put us together. Not sure I answered the question….
I wonder what Moshe Rabbeinu , Dovid and Shaul and Shlomo Hamelchs hair was like?
And please don’t say it was the times…July 29, 2019 8:28 am at 8:28 am in reply to: DO WE REALLY HAVE A GOOD EXCUSE TO LIVE IN CHUTZ LA'ARETZ? #1766320
Never before in History have we been invited to live in a land that is ours. We have cryed for so many years to Hashem to give us back Eretz Yisroel and now that we have it . Are we running. When Moshiach comes will we say the same thing?
Yes I too have my ‘excuses’ the yetzer hora has a way of making it seem like it’s a mitzvah that I am not there after all my husband and I are doing outreach work. I cannot speak for the other gedolum that didn’t. Only for my self my neshama
The Torah we learn, the parshas we learn weekly . Is that just some whimsical tale. True there is work to be done in Eretz Yisroel not just with our blood and bones but with our Torah and one to be a walking living example to other israelis. Without the judging .
I know in my heart I need to make Aliyah . I also know there will be tough decision as my husband whom I love will not go. I plan on making split Aliyah sooner then later and iyh if it’s supposed to be one day he will join me. My love for the land of my forefathers and mother’s is calling my name.
Please wish me hatzlacha in fulfilling a lifelong dream. How I will manage financially? I am not 100% sure. But I know Hashem will come through and I can work. It’s the only land that by treading on is a mitzvah the only land that wants me and the only land I will feel at home amongst family. Yes fighting, shouting, arguing , protecting and love. This is family. This is Israel. This is the only country I will fight and invest myself into politics. When ones hone is burning one can’t keep quiet. Am Yisroel chai
