  1. BDE. An avoidable situation.

    What will it take for Williamsburg and Boro Park communities to take this seriously? How many more have to die R”L? Crown Heights already has had at least one Corona fatality. STOP PLAYING RUSSIAN ROULETTE WITH PEOPLE’S LIVES!

    If you don’t care about your own welfare, at least care about other people’s… including your family’s!

    How could you know that this specific situation was avoidable?
    Yes, there probably will be fallout that was avoidable, R”L. But, how could you make the case for this situation?
    Just be sensitive.
