  1. i did not watch videos but

    supporting a democrat is supporting toeva and other legislation that runs contrary to our belief system.

    this is true at any level of government.

  2. I like what I see before my eyes in Adams but have this simple nagging thought that unless Mr. Adams answers the question, I do not know how comfortable I am with him. Eric Adams was a tremendous chossid of Louis Farakhan. So much so that in 2011 when Jesse Jackson condemned Farrakhan for a particularly anti-Semitic speech, Eric Adams condemned Jesse Jackson for not understanding what Farakhan was trying to do. Does Mr. Adams repudiate his past admiration for Farakhan? Is he still affiliated or associated with the Nation of Islam in any way? People can change and I would like to give Adams the benefit of the doubt but I need to know if he has changed in the past 10 years or is he still a chossid of Farakhan.

  3. Besalel, I believe I rrad in a recent magazine interview of Adams a direct unequivocal repudiation of the Farrakhan movement and he does not associate himself with them.
    Does that guarantee anything?
    Nopes, al tivtchu benedivim. But exercise your best choice and vote!

  4. At least Mr. Adams has NOT said ON RECORD like Mr. Yang HAS said that he would take money away from police. Without the police, how can any religious life take place?

  5. Nissim is the gadol hador. He is a big Chusid of the Rebbe Reb Nachman of Breslov, goes to Uman, and wears a big shtreimel, so Klal Yisroel needs to listen to whatever he says.

    (sarcasm off)

    With all due respect to Nissim, since when are singers and performers our leaders?

    אלה אלהיך ישראל?

    We are supposed to follow גדולי תורה, זקני הדור, not music stars, or pop culture celebrities.

    I think you may have missed the point. Singers are regular people. But they do attract interest. News sites should print articles of human interest and this article qualifies. Not every article has to be devorim haomdim brumo shel oilam.

  7. I don’t know what political acumen Nissim has. But I could tell you something about him. Before this Corona mageifo Nissim came to Los Angeles and happened to daven in my shul just a few feet away from me. I wish I could daven with such kavono. Watching him and listening to him daven B’Yechidus was such a pleasure.
