    get a sense of humor, what alter meant was obviously he is very old and remembers not having power and is laughing at how we freak out now without power

  2. It’s NOT funny when people suffer.This is not the Jewish way. We feel for others,not laugh at their promlems נושא בעול עם חברו

  3. We need to remember what it’s like, not having to rely on power and machines, how to live a simple existence getting in touch with nature again. I am old but I still spend five weeks of my summer camping out in the wild with no power or machines to distract me from getting in touch with Hashem.
    After Mashiach comes who says we will still have power to distract us from serving Hashem. We need to learn how to live without power in case something might happen Chas Vesholom.

    Do you know how to light a fire without matches or a lighter? Do you know how to pick non-poisonous vegetation? Do you know how to find a shelter in the wild, dessert or jungle? Can you survive or even sustain others without power?

    Most people these days can’t do any of those things!!!
