This post is very on the point, and it needs to be discussed seriously and not ridiculed by leitzonim.
Unfortunately the problem is too common [without getting involved in numbers and percentages] and it involves core beliefs of Judaism.
We should be deeply caring as they are are brethren, our flesh and our soul. Indeed the right formula is needed to reach out in a caring and effective manner, to save these wonderful Yidden.
Irregardless of the “root causes” (see VP Kamilla) of the over population of deer in Monsey, the clear and present danger is that it is so. It must be taken care of. People are losing their lives, it’s no joking matter.
While the people of Monsey would be thankful for your service, I think we should try using the legal course of action. Besides the left would probably accuse you of being MAGA gun crazies.
Some very impressive balabattim !!
Ashreichem Yisroel keep it up !!
The Meshichist Movement is scary.
In front of our eyes, we are witnessing multitudes of Frum, or previously Frum Yidden, on a slippery path to exiting our nation. It is painful to watch.
We need some concerned and talented leaders from Chabad to step up and stem the tide. If not we will lose thousands of Neshamois Rachmana Litzlon.
I am not opposed to your idea of hedging, what’s important is that it shouldn’t remain as an idea, but actually get done.
Also, keep in mind not everyone is long the market, some are heavily invested in real estate, nursing homes, and other investments, there may not be one fix for everyone.
The important thing is the message gets out and people internalize it.
See Mr shiller’s recent article [author of the Shiller index] where he did a study of people today who believe if the Dow falls 3% in one day that translates into a buying opportunity, the results of the study were staggering. People have been trained by recent occurrences to buy buy buy.
We know this will eventually come to an end.
Human nature ie. greed tells us to keep going and make more and more.
But we pay for it in spades … the families, the communities, the moisdois, the Chesed Organizations, they will all suffer.
Look around, BH there are many who are prospering and G-D bless them, may they make more. But please lets not let it go to waste.
I feel passionate about this.
We need to scream it from the rooftops, “Yidden save your money, the good times won’t last forever, do it for yourself ,your families and your communities”.
I am not an economic advisor, please seek out advice from someone you trust.
My intention was not to offer specific economic advice, but to remind us all of our feelings in 2008, when all of us said to ourselves we would never risk so much capital again, we would be conservative and prudent. As the time goes on, and everyone drinks the cool aid, we forget. How much pain and suffering can be avoided, if we internalize this.
Such a waste of good Yiddishe gelt … such a pity … Chevra think about it !
