    While it is still way too early to know for certain, it is likely children AND PARENTS will need the camps to be in service this year more than ever! The stress levels will likely be reaching boiling point by then. Hopefully this will all be long forgotten by then and life can continue to function. Hashem yerachem

    Syag Lchochma, we’re talking about live video interactivity with rebbe/morah and all the classmates. Check it out! It’s far superior. Children see rebbe enlarged on their screen, they can ask questions when they raise their hand and rebbe unmutes them. It’s amazing. I watched my children learning. In fact they were so well prepared for the sedarim.
    Clearly it appears to me that many posters do not know the ability and effectiveness of this temporary classroom setup. It’s worth exploring during chol hamoeid.

    If your son needs your intervention that’s an issue that is broader than yeshiva over Zoom. Overall it is a better choice if children see their rebbe or morah. It’s a superior learning. No?

    We’ve got to do what’s best to promote Torah learning as well as protecting our children. If we do it for K’vod Shamayim, Hashem will protect our children’s purity and kedudusha. Whatever we do let’s do it for His Kavod and His Torah and His children. Let’s not let our personal views interfere with what’s best.
    As for tge phone having worked gor two weeks, come on, be honest, can that work long term? Secondly, because it worked for girls, can it also work the same for boys? Boys and girls two different worlds, you know!

    My children’s school Rebbie’s did opt to use Zoom and the kids gained immeasurably. My sisters children school did not. They opted for phone teleconferencing instead for basically the same reason the author offered. Her children were not well served. I think if the din is that we don’t disturb children from their Torah learning even if the Bet Hamikdash needs the Rebbi’s skills, he is not allowed to leave the classroom. So, I reason, if the children’s learning is so important, then the best contingency plan have to be put forth. On line is far superior to teleconferencing. Schools must be challenged by the parents and they must do the on line option. It’s a no-brainer. It’s the Torah learning of the children that brought about the miracle of Purim and it’s their Torah learning that has to be maximized now too. Edited

    I’m poster #8! Just curious why nobody until now has even noticed the egregious spelling error in the author’s title! Come-on! …”way too fast!” Not “way to fast!” We’re not illiterate dumbos! Come on people!

    How about learning instead of using your smartphone. Leave the time which is dedicated to Avodas Hashem uninterrupted. Bored? Learn how to concentrate on tefilah. It’s the healthier choice.

    No need to attack the OP. He asked a few innocent questions which simply show his not understanding the concepts! His questions were good and respectful and many of the answers were too. I’m sure he’s going, “ahha, I didn’t think of it that way!” The fact that Rubashkin was released is precisely because of warm relationships that have been forged and that’s likely why the president even mentioned it! Philanthropy needs to continue and yes, the gevirim are apputrumsim of the Ribono Shel Olam’s money and they are free to do with it as they see fit as long as it is well spent. The Manhattan event is one such example!

    Someone on my block in BP does it regularly! It is the epitope of selfishness. He cares only about himself and whatever is easy and comfortable for himself. He does it with impunity and ignores everything anyone ever says to him. In fact he smiles and says, “I just wasn’t thinking!” Sadly it brings out the worst in us neighbors.

    Ben L, you stole my thunder. While I also intend to vote him in for a second term, I am doing so while pinching my nose. His middos stink. He is the antithesis of what a jew should be. He is the president of the gaayva club too. A sick, self-centered individual. He is the best choice for our country and for Israel. His friendship is legendary. Why so many jews consider him their hero is inexplicable.

    Not all chassidim do it. Generally chassidim emanating from Galicia, Poland and Hungary do it. Russian Chassidim don’t.

    It’s a shame Kaleiv ben Yifuneh didn’t know this when he went to Kivrei Ha’avos while the Meraglim went further around C’naan. It’s also a shame Yehoshua didn’t know this when he reqarded Kaleiv with Chevron.
    It’s also a shame Yosef Hatzadik didn’t know this when davened at his mother’s kever as the Yishmaeilim were taking him to Mitzrayim.
    More recently it’s a shame Reb Chaim Shmulevitz declared, “Dyne Chaimke zogt, Folgt Nit! Noor Vain Mamma Vain.”
    If only they had read this chat they would have all known better!

    My bone to pick is not necessarily about his respect to me as it is to my daughter! He seems to think that he can say whatever he wants and however he wants since there is no mashgiach in his life anymore! I see my daughter toughing it out and it hurts me to no end!
