    I heard that Camp <REMOVED> is bad in Ruchnius. Then again Camp <REMOVED> doesn’t have good sports. Camp <REMOVED> doesn’t have good food. The best camp for your son would be Camp <REMOVED> – it’s really great.

    p.s. I’m the director there..

    A troll is innocently posing a question or stating something to provoke controversy.

    CA, Yeah, most people by now realize that.

    Oh the fun (or “””Fun”””) we had back then…

    p.s. And to let the bag out of the cat… that name was brainstormed when I was in a rush to invent a screen name.. and someone just happened to call me that… that’s the open and close of it. There is no real requirement that one actually match the screen name. So that’s why and how this big, fat, ugly, vile, sour, obnoxious, annoying, bothersome personality became the infamous ZeesKite!

    Ashamed to say, at times I’ve not only used this room, I’d actually lived in it. 26/6. And anyone from that generation can testify (please don’t). Maybe, just maybe, from all those years one person got some minute chizuk from it all…

    As much as they come prepared, there’s always the Mesorah and attitude that cannot be “taught” in school. And that, exactly that is what the night of Seder is made for. Give it over “as if you went out of Egypt”. It’s the manner, the excitement, the attitude that’s always going to stay with the child, years after all the peshatim are forgotten.

    Take the opportunity, grab as much as you can on this special night. One can relate to a child of any level … the four sons.

    And if I may add – the fifth one too, the one who does not come to the Seder at all. To him we say the Ha Lachma.. come and join.. no questions asked. Just come and join our party.. great food, you’ll enjoy it. And we don’t try to shove anything else at him…

    Interestingly, their battle cry used to be “Global Warming”. When faced with an many an occasional “global cooling” (like today), they changed their anthem.. now it’s climate change. Like years ago the climate didn’t change. Hogwash to the fifth power!! Cute little Greta and co. notwithstanding, YiddishKite (that’s Boro Park, to the uninitiated) is not being blown away, nor being swamped. Planet Earth (that’s Brooklyn) is still open for business, it’s not gasping for air under the Hudson.

    Sure – הרוצה לשקר ירחיק עדותו, one who wants to spread falsehoods should distance his “proofs”. So it’s the north pole that’s caving in… or some obscure puddle in a distant tribal village that’s drying up… And we got ONLY ten years to fix it.

    ubiquitin, and others, Sorry. I never meant it to be definitive. But I do remember hearing a lot about this topic, using secular dates (Teshuvas Chasam Sofer maybe). Certainly calling it, defining it as a new year would be worse. Then there’s this issue of what that date signifies. If it’s in reference to Yoshke or”b (of rotted bones), then there’s this aspect of moda/ mokir avodah zara c”v.

    I’m by far no halachaknician, not by any stretch of imagination, just saying…

    I take issure with the very last statement, “… a happy new year filled with health and success”
    But us Yidden (Jews, for the uneducated), we have one MAIN Rosh Hashana, three other ones. I doubt this secular date is included.

    True, there was a certain Tzaddik how would say a special bracha to HaShem on this “new year”, certainly not is the same vein. It’s not our new year at all. We are not allowed to consider it as such. החודש הזה לכם ראש חדשים, that is ours, and JUST that is ours. Actually the יונים, like from the Chanuka story, every one knows, they tried to do away with Rosh Chodesh… We held on. And we continue to do so.

    My 1.5 sense…

    Many things wrong here

    First and foremost is little me calling out others. Who do I think I am. Am I the one to pass judgment on others?!? Of all people I should be the one laying low, I have MUCH to repair before offering anything to others.

    But as the Gemarah says (somewhere, I’m sure) in the face of Chilul HaShem, all else matters little, so I HAVE TO speak up here.

    1) Bad mouthing others and especially a community on a social outlet (written, printed, electrical) is a tremendous Chilul HaShem. Where is affects someone or worse, a group, goes on the dangerous path of Mesira, where those in the past were dealt with according to the especial halachos in Shulcah Aruch. And vdi lechakima brimiza. NOTHING TO BE TAKEN LIGHTLY. Reporters of the Jewish verity have a dangerous occupation, besides their clientele they have to give an accouting to the Great Master Up There. Hilchos Shmiras Halashon are more, much more, dire when disseminating and broadcasting to the public. And especially about a community.

    2) I don’t think Klal Yisroel voted or signed up to have a new “gadol” speak (or wreak havoc) for themselves. Our true leaders are known to have a head on their shoulders, to think things through first. And most of our true leaders are known to have done things obtrusively, quietly, behind the scenes, without the fanfare or rah rah of the cameras or reporters. See where all this has lead… A national chilul HaShem on major national news outlets. When one chooses to replace daas Torah with …. only disastrous results will occur R”L.

    Have our youth totally descended to the level of those BLM hooligans?!? Watching pictures of those tiere Yidden behaving like those animals… so disgusting… so reviling… so nauseating… Is there really no difference between the behavior of the Chosen Nation to that of the lowest dregs of society?!? Even those chants are taken from them… “..no peace…” Feh. Times one million. Where and how have we sunk so low. Is there really no shepherd for our blind lost sheep?!? Sad. Very very sad.

    What’s so bad about learning Torah. Plain. Without the prestige… fanfare… just some good old Torah (Taireh, Toyruh, Tooraah) Lishma. Anywhere. For HaShem’s sake. Nobody to see you… nobody to ooh and ahhh… Not even to “shteig” and become a “somebody”. Just learning for it’s OWN sake… Great idea..

    Three and a half answers to you very good question. Let me try…

    #1) Our communities and basically all of the metropolitan area (I think) had it already in one form or another. The missed opportunity to prevent this at the VERY ONSET is what made it spread like wildfire. Once we all caught it (about Purim time), self isolating, quarantining and distancing was way too late. It could be argued the in fact it did NOTHING AT ALL for us – we all caught it in the following weeks regardless. And there is very strong evidence that once you caught it – the antibody thing – you’re not gonna get it again. At all. So basically there’s NOTHING AT ALL FOR US TO WORRY ABOUT AT THIS POINT (most of us)

    #2) At some point one has to make some sort of cheshbon, a conclusion, that the merits of “breathing” outweigh the concerns of this distancing thing. People are going off the edge. Take a look at society lately (or rather don’t bother) … When too many people are layed off.. when too many people (call them what you like) have plenty of time on their hands… you’re creating a most dangerous situation. These nincompoops sitting in their large offices, the once who think they’re the most important, most informed, most knowledgeable in their “fields”, they don’t take this into consideration. And that’s why America looks like it does. The looting, burning down stores and cities, pulling down statues… and EVERYONE’S FOLLOWING THEM LIKE BLIND SHEEP. They have the platform today… because they have the mobs backing them… because there’s nothing else to do. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out. And if they don’t do something pretty soon … בטלה מביא לידי שעמום, Chazal knew human nature more than anyone living today. LIFE MUST RETURN TO NORMAL NOW!!!

    #3) These clueless “leaders” are just that. So wishy washy. The only way to get them to say something or do something is by getting President Trump to say or do the opposite! And they’re trying to hold on to any vestige of power still in their power hungry hands. Full of agendas. 15 debriefings a day.. the mayor, the governor, this baal ga’ah, that know it all — day in day out.

    In Japan there’s a saying:
    GENUG IS GENUG!

    in reply to: Summer Camps in a Pandemic?! #1876826
    Little Froggie
    Participant

    These nincompoops in power have to realize that keeping kids on the street is a bigger danger, both to the kids and to society. Do you think the “demonstrations” happened by itself? The firecracker pandemic? “Defund the police?” It’s a whole segment of people with plenty of time on their hands.. As the Mishnah states boredom leads to idiocy, insanity. And we are seeing it right before our eyes. If this continues, America will be taken dismantled… Actually it IS coming apart!

    So the question is do we kill the people in order to save them?!? These haughty “professionals”, “experts” are, at best, single minded individuals who know nothing out of what their field is or was. They may know something about how the virus spreads (actually we see daily how little they know, things change so fast back and forth. The latest of their findings change direction almost DAILY!). But they don’t know what the effects of locking people up, especially children, for endless month. Made to stare at the ceiling from morning to night, seven days a week. One month. Two months. Three months. And counting!!!

    Second note – the camps actually submitted an excellent proposition and plan how the camps would operate; they stated that they would quarantine IN CAMP, and not let any contact with the campers. To any sensible person that’s far better than having a day camp where children mingle AND THEN ARE SENT HOME DAILY – to further spread the virus. Only an individual with a head screwed on backwards – OR SOMEONE WITH AN AGENDA – thinks that quarantining in camp is worse than letting it out.

    I don’t know why the Jewish Camp Association doesn’t get me to fight for them. I’d let those who think they’re in power have an earful – and then some!! SOMEONE HAS TO SOUND OUT!

    CA, For the time being (until someone on the top of the totem pole gets the message) we cannot allow for children C”V to go on the busses (or buses, actually even both). But we CAN drive them without children to Albany and slowly march around town, all 5,000 of them, slowly circling around the streets. One day, two days… maybe someone over there would realize that it’s not such a good idea to keep camps closed.

    BTW 5,000 buses isn’t so much, every Mosad could send in maybe 5 or 10. As a side benefit, maybe clear up some parking space…

    Another thought popped into my (extra bored) head. Why not send a petition to President Trump to ban overnight camps. That will certainly do the trick.

    אי”ה by Shavuos it will be over.

    The first Shabbos in all the Shuls will be spectacular. NOT A PEEP! The entire Davening. EVERY SHUL!! Many will try to augment and savor that spectacular feeling, there will be Kabolos in many Shuls not to talk by Davening. To give HaShem His proper due respect – one positive outcome of this tzara.

    Also this Shabbos Kria will be quite long. It will be Vayakhel – Pekudai – Vayikra – Tzav – Shemini – Tazria – Metzorah – Acharei – Kedoshim – Emor – Bhar – Bechukosai – Bamidbar – Naso. (since the majority of Yidden did not have Keria since.

    There will be many, many Gomels, maybe even the ENTIRE congregation – since anyone alive was literally in the situation and place of dire Sakana – and got saved. (I’ll leave this decision up to the Rabonim)

    Then there will be a Kiddush – a Kiddush to remember. No – not for the food and drinks, but for the words of thankfulness and gratitude to the Ribono Shel Olam for ending this terrible plague. For the words of Chizuk offered at the occasion. For the warm (may I dare think it?) HANDSHAKES, HUGS, KISSES, ETC. , for human interaction and connection. For the resumption of humans to live as humans!!!

    I see it coming (I have that crystal thingy). One day we’re going to be able to smile in public, and offer one another a hearty handshake!! That day is coming. Closer, closer. Ever so close.

    OOOOOO!!!!

    Oh do I remember this one!!! This is one of those questions that come around from year (or maybe 2, or maybe 3 or maybe 4, but definitely not 5) years. That’s how I gauge how much time (what’s that?) has passed. So if I remember correctly from last time, the first answer is that I don’t comment here. That answers all questions.

    The second answer is mostly to drive people off the web, back into the world of reality – of people, places and things. So when I go and rant my mind off, that in of itself is a great incentive.

    The third answer is the sometimes I may THINK I have something important enough to broadcast to the world at large, something I felt the world is just waiting for…

    Fourth – sometimes just a quip, a joke (r”l) or a line, maybe a word of Chizuk, something to share with another, something which to brighten up another person’s day. A kind word, a virtual smile / giggle, a thoughtful piece of comfort… Bringing a lift to another, to changes another’s bleak, dismal outlook to that of a bright, sunny future…

    Olam Chesed Yibaneh – that’s what we’re all here for, no?
