No no no!!!

No no no!!!

This is exactly what the satan wants especially now in the era of Moshiach to stop learning Torah and to stop davening with a minyan and the worst thing that can happen is closing the Chabbad Lubavitch headquarters, we are falling right into his trap!

Young people are also in danger

Young people are also in danger

It is an incredibly dangerous and ignorant attitude to say that we will all go about our daily lives, as most of Crown Heights is currently doing, because “it isn’t dangerous” or even befause “HaShem decides who lives and who dies.” Torah commands us to guard our health. A doubtful danger must be taken more seriously than a doubtful transgression. We are forbidden to rely on miracles. And if you have any idea how these things spread exponentially, assuming we can live our normal lives and no one will be hurt is asking to rely on many many miracles. It… Read more »

Such statements are extremely irrational and should be ignored.
We must follow the doctors and the Rabbonim

To No no no!!

To No no no!!

Are you taking responsibility for the health and well-being of your fellow anash. With many holy chassidim already infected and suffering with g-d forbid life threatening conditions, your suggesting to go against the opinion of medical and rabbinical opinions around the world? The Frum communities around the world are suffering and there will be unthinkable outcomes. RABBANIM are shouting to follow the health advisory’s And you dare say no no no! pekoach nefesh is dochei Shabbos yet not a minyan? If a member of Hatzloah was in middle of a minyan and someone outside was having a heart attack do… Read more »

🔥*Amazing Story*🔥 *The two brothers, the famed Rabbi Elimelech of Lizensk and Rabbi Zushe of Anipoli, often wandered about together, posing as simple beggars.* They would mingle with the masses, listening, teaching, speaking, helping and guiding whomever and whenever they could. *Once, while they were traveling with a group of vagabonds, members of the group were accused of being thieves, resulting in the entire bunch being thrown into jail.* Confident of their innocence and eventual release, the two brothers sat quietly. As the afternoon progressed, Rabbi Elimelech stood up to prepare himself to pray the afternoon service. “What are you… Read more »

Amazing Moshol I have heard the story before but it is a perfect example to use now and thank you for bringing it out this way

For Yom kippur too

For Yom kippur too

100%

Depending on the circumstance, halacha does not allow certain individuals to fast on yom kippur. If I’m not mistaken, I think there is even a special bracha to say in benching for one who eats on yom kippur (due to this kind of situation).

Shuls were closed in the time of R Akiva Eiger

Shuls were closed in the time of R Akiva Eiger

It would not be the first time Shuls were closed. R Akiva Eiger nearly 200 years ago closed the shuls of Posen and implemented other social distancing measures to help contain a cholera outbreak. Even over the Yomim Noraim when the outbreak was subsiding they only allowed limited numbers of people at Shul with a goral determining who got a spot. They had police presence to ensure it was enforced. Anything that we can do to limit the spread of the virus is literally saving lives.

This wasn’t an easy decision I’m sure, but the Torah teaches us that we shall guard ourselves very well!! As a frum Yid, I feel awful, but in my heart I know that this is only temporary, & everything is only temporary until MOSHIACH Comes!!
