    Editing historical fact is a bad look, mod. The Borschr Belt was established by Jews fleeing the Lower East Side, who lived in tenements which were by most accounts unhygienic and yes, rat infested.

    Since the moderator allowed the thread, I’m somewhat hopeful that he/she/they will allow my response.

    YWN is an aggregate news source. That means that they don’t employ journalists to document stories. They find content from sources that they feel are of interest to their readership and repost them on their site. I’m oversimplifying it, but my point is that YWN is directly responsible for the editorial content of their site, not necessarily for factual misrepresentations contained in outside reporting.

    But a legitimate criticism of YWN, which may be what the OP was alluding to, is that YWN engages in editorializing without stating that they are presenting an opinion or their interpretation of a piece of reporting. For example, it was never reported that the Rabbi chose not to mention G-d in his statement. It was entirely possible that he donned a tallis and recited a complete Hallel, and the reporter didn’t think it was relevant enough to his wider audience to include it in his article. YWN chose to interpret that article as reflecting poorly on Reform Jews by attaching a headline to the story that didn’t reflect the facts of the story.
    Good luck mod, I don’t envy you. Even if you discard my entire post, you’ll still have to wash your eyes out with soap.

    It ain’t about luck. I definitely didn’t approve it and will have no qualms about deleting.

    Here is my own personal perspective:
    My surgeon is hoping to avoid it, but I have an issue that may require an “elective surgery “. Because of the surge on Covid cases, elective surgeries are being delayed indefinitely.
    People who argue that “all we care about is death” dont appreciate the massive strain the unvaccinated are placing on the healthcare system. And yes, the vaccinated are also contracting Covid, but the overwhelming majority of patients who are being hospitalized are unvaccinated. And once they are hospitalized with a highly contagious disease, it effects the mechanics of the entire hospital. I’ve heard talk that some healthcare systems were even planning on designating certain hospitals as Covid centers, so that the rest of the system could continue to function, but the winter surge has put paid that idea.
    So, fimor this who argue that vaccination is an issue of personal freedom, I’d respond that the others arent meant to bear the cost of your freedom.

    It’s a pity. Alot of Trumps actual policies were pretty good. But his personal statements frequently arent coherent or reasonable. Today, the original statement he released suggesting that Bifen was fixating on 1/6 to distract the country from his own dismal performance was on the mark. The “rant” about the previous election was distracting and unnecessary.
    That being said, I’m always leery of identifying too closely with a particular president or political party. The absolutely utilitarian approach of some is too extreme for me, but the truth is that the authentic perspective of our community needs to be represented on local, state,.and national level by some one who can manage to stay out of his own way.

    We didn’t receuve financial support from our families because they couldn’t afford it. That doesnt mean they didnt support us is other ways. Or that others who received financial support from their parents were necessarily better off. Please enjoy the fulfillment and נחת of having household revolving around Torah for as long as you can.

    The פסק doesn’t differentiate between a psychiatrist or a psychologist in stating that a מין or כופר (atheist or non religious) should not be consulted. Interestingly, he states that possibly, if they are a respected professional, the parents of the patient can rely on his word that he wont discuss matters related to religion or faith with the child. But if possibly, a “frum” psychiatrist should be found.
    I’m not a huge fan of being מדייק in the אגרות משה; its widely accepted that they were heavily edited by his grandchildren.
    However, it appears that the situation that ר’ משה זצ”ל was referring to was a parent seeking care for their child. In that situation, the parent is able to advocate for the child and hopefully moniter the care they are receiving. Less meaningfully, while in the body of the תשובה he refers to both psychiatrists and psychologists, but in the actual ruling that allows treatment by a non religous practitioner who will respect parental boundaries, he only mentions psychiatrists, and states that a שומר תירה would be preferable if s suitable one can be found.
    I would be curious as to what his opinion would have been of adults seeing a psychologist or psychiatrist independently, and whether he would have insisted on using a “frum” therapist with limited training instead of a board certified psychiatrist.

    @ Romain
    Sorry, just needed a minute to catch my breath.
    I suspect even in א”י, its more expensive to live in some places than others.
    In the US, poverty level for a family of 4 is around $2200 / month. That is for a typical family, not including the increase costs for kosher food, yeshiva tuition, etc.
    This also doesnt include healthcare, childcare, a d Kollel subsidies and other benifits that y’all take hand over fist in Israel.
    So comparing the 2 is laughable.
    Also, I literally dream of the day when teachers go into the business for the money. I think חינוך overall would greatly benifit from professionals who appreciate the value of their work. For the most part though most teachers in the US do if for the “מצוה”, which dilutes the market.

    My question was “Why”. Your answer is “because they want to help people”. How trite.
    I didnt ask about bad apples or how your best freinds sister in law is allowed to have a Dear Rochi column in Mishpocha magazine.
    If the moderator allows, Ill rephrase the question (or hell do it for me).
    In the wake of Defund the Police, officers are retiring in droves a d academies are having trouble recruiting.
    Given the perception of licenced and accredited clinical psychology as not being a “frum” profession, for whatever reason rocks your boat, how can we encourage qualified frum people to go into this field.
    By the way, Ik neither malicious nor ignorant, but you are quite Ill mannered.
