    Do you remember 2016, when the Republican field started out with a promising field of reasonable, moderate people, like Marco Rubio, John Kasich, George Pataki, and Jeb Bush? Do you remember Jeb Bush saying, “Donald, you can’t insult your way to the White House”? I would’ve voted for any of them, especially against Hillary. But, no, the American people had to pick this eppes loony who had no background in government, no respect for facts, no regard for the truth, no connection to reality, and no empathy for anyone except himself. Now the governor of Florida attempted to make himself into a Trump clone, but that’s not good enough, the voters want Trump back. Meshuggeners.

    In Monsey, Rabbi Israel Flam was a mechanech (YSV) and also sat on a Beis Din. We (my wife and I) had a Din Torah and he was very nice to us, also he was my daughters’ Menahel. So when he was niftar I went and his sons didn’t know who I was but I told them how helpful he was as a Dayan and they appreciated it.
    I remember feeling awkward at shiva visits when I was young, but I think as you get older the awkwardness disappears.
    I once was menachem avel by a great Rav whose wife died suddenly, he had just flown from Israel and then suddenly I was face to face with him, and the first thing I said was, “The baalei musar talk about the difference between shivron lev (being heartbroken) and dikaon (depression)” and similar things and the conversation actually was fairly smooth

    If we as Jews have our own code of law, why should the laws of the secular government concern us? If the states or the federal government want to legalize abortion, I don’t think it’s my business to object.

    ujm, if you think there’s something “not frum” about women going to law school or medical school, you’re very ignorant.
    Doctors and lawyers are not “men’s jobs”, unless you’re stuck in some pre-1960 fantasy world. In reality, there are more women than men in medical school and law school, in the U.S. You’re trying to define “frumkeit” by the world of your Zeides and Bubbes, but there’s nothing frum about nostalgia.

    Yes, in fact the Chief Rabbi of Tzefat, Rabbi Levi Bistritzky, ZT”L, himself a non-Meshichist Lubavitcher had both legs broken by a crazy Meshichist in a car.

    My grandfather had a story from his shtetl, Boiberke, where he and another boy once brought a horse into the Beis Medrash and tied it to the Bimah. The shamash, Reb Chaim Abbaleh, walked in and told them it was a fahrbloonzit neshoomeh fun anderre velt (lost soul from the other world) and they had to fetch the Dayan to Mach a Tikun. This required putting a Tallis over the horse (who did not agree to accept the Tallis) and while they were working on this my great grandfather and other men came in and told Reb Chaim Abbaleh that the two boys were making a fool of him, and so they released the horse and it ran away.

    The incidence rate ratio of hospitalizations (comparing hospitalization among non-vaccinated vs vaccinated) is 10.4, according to recent data published by the CDC. The incidence rate ratio for death is 11.3.
    In simple terms – if you’re vaccinated, your risk of hospitalization and death due to Covid drops by >90%.

    There was a story about a shul that had made an error calculating the size, and ended up with a sefer Torah that was too heavy to do Hagbaha.
    Better to just do g’lilah on the shulchan, rather than risk some idiot macho weightlifter dropping the sefer Torah.

    In the July/August issue of American Journal of Therapeutics there is a meta-analysis of 24 randomized controlled studies (3,406 patients) of ivermectin vs no ivermectin and found “moderate-certainty” evidence of reduction of death. https://journals. lww.com/americantherapeutics/fulltext/2021/08000/ivermectin_for_prevention_and_treatment_of.7.aspx
    The drug is considered extremely safe at dose 0.2-0.4 mg/kg.
    This article discusses possible mechanisms of action.

    Chanie315, you’re clearly not an educated person. Viruses are something that people can control, look at smallpox, measles and chickenpox. Smallpox has been eradicated, and the incidence of measles and chickenpox has been markedly curtailed. Small minded people, like you, who can’t see past the end of their own noses (“why can’t we go to Eretz Yisroel?”) never appreciate the seriousness of a public health emergency until it affects them directly.
