New crosswalks are to blame

New crosswalks are to blame

New traffic and sidewalks are the cause for this death.
Michael Bloomberg moved the sidewalks out into the middle of the roads, so now all you need is a small slip and ur under the wheels of a garbage truck.

BH. BDE. There should be signs in hebrew on all road junctions in crown heights, warning of the danger of going against the lights. and to go only by the lights. Specialy outside the EP. mikva, where I have seen people go out of the mikva, and try to cross EP, at that place, and not to go where the traffic lights are located.

terrible tragedy

While cleaning snow is VERY important – crucial, if such a terrible tragedy befalls our community r”l we should turn to Hashen and cry out – and not look for some “ice” to blame it on.

Hashem runs things, the ice may have been the “keily-tool” for the tragedy…
Let’s not loose focus.

This is a terrible tragedy for us all

He was crossing on green. The truck was turning. I think there are many corners where it is safer to cross on red because no vehicle comes speeding on a turn when you are crossing on red. (Better able to see to see what is coming toward the crosswalk).

BS”D to 29 You missed my point. We the clal are always blamed and the Rabbonin tell us we need more Ahavas Israel. I say the clal exhibits extreme Ahavas Israel and the only ones who need to do tshuvah are the Rabbonim themselves. It starts at the top. Who can heed there admonitions when they cannot get along? I don’t care what the ” reason(s)”are- there is absolutely no good reason for their not getting along

A special soul
Guest
A special soul

As someone who knew Gedalya personally, I would like to share a few words. Gedalya, a bright boy from the Ukraine, became a baal teshuva with the help of the Rebbe’s shluchim. In yeshiva he served as a source of inspiration for all that knew him as a masmid in learning, and always looking to encourage others to grow in the ways of a chossid. All done with a smile.

what is a garbage truck doing at 9 am in Crown Heights? The driver is angry he needs to work on Sunday. He should be checked for a hangover from Saturday night. The driver is the killer he should be blamed. You can see how close he is to the south side of the sidewalk he made a sharp turn. There is ice buildup so the people stand after the ice. He stopped after the rear tires ran over the body. If he hit the Bochur with the front of the vehicle he should stop before the rear tires ran… Read more »

Excuse the chutzpah but if the Rebbe would farbreng tonight I daresay it would not be about ice, lights and garbage trucks but about cries of pain and sadness and the demand for the Geula. Maybe discussing the name of Gedalia, how Hashem is great but it would be even greater with the light of Hashem revealed and we can openly see His Goodness….

Stay focusesd. Direct your outrage to Gd for treating His children like this. Channel your energy to help the family and help one another.

According to the surveillance footage (from what might be Kingston pizza), it looks like the 3 Bochurim were talking on the corner. The light was green for both the truck and pedestrians. As the truck was in middle of turning the bochur started walking backwards onto the crosswalk, apparently still facing his friends and not the road, and walked right into the side of the truck. The truck was still moving, and he got pulled under the back wheels. It was not the trucks fault, as he turned while noone was on or approaching the sidewalk. But neither was it… Read more »

How can anyone be so sure that there is only ONE “answer” ? Of course it is completely crucial that the Rabbonim get their act together for the sake of our future, but there are also far too many individuals in this community who have lost their moral, ethical, menchlikite, and emesdike Yiddshkeit compass. There is a mother & father today in Ukraine whose hearts were destroyed – not the right time to point fingers at others but certainly the right time to look deep and without delusions into our own behavior and fix it TODAY.

I was told that the truck was not sure who would go first, he as we’ll not knowing who’s going first so he took the chance together with the truck driver also taking the same chance….

The Belzer Rebbe’s Rebbetzin stood by his side and supported him in all that he did. When he built his famous shul, he remained awake for 1000 nights, and his Rebbetzin stayed awake with him to help him fight sleep. When she passed away, the Belzer Rebbe was heartbroken. At her hesped he said: “Everything that I have, I owe to her. If I was only able to, I would bring her back to life. But I can’t. “But You, Eibishter,” he concluded, “You have the ability to resurrect Your wife, the כנסת ישראל, and to restore her to life.… Read more »

He didn't slip- the truck backed into him

Read the article. He was crossing at the crosswalk, there WAS NO ICE at that spot- per the article. It’s pretty clear that the truck backed from carroll back onto kingston slightly round a corner and into him. It was completely the driver’s responsibility to make sure that no pedestrians were there on this very busy intersection. I hope the matter is pursued immediately and to the full extent of the law so that this will be prevented from recurring G”f.

Our heart is with his family. yet I do agree with 105 history teaches us that HaShem hurts us when we aren’t as good as we should be. Lub have a very wrong respect for shul ! It’s a place to pray and thank HaShem to talk to HaShem and ONLY HaShem it’s not a men’s club we all must work on our selves . Also we never know when our last day will be so every day must in our minds be our last so we must take ADVANTAGE and do the most mitzvos we can

Stop jumping to conclusions. Watch the surveillance footage

There was no slipping on ice, the truck was not backing up, it did not turn on a red. The 3 bochurim were standing on the curb, not crossing. After the truck was in middle of the turn, the niftar stepped off the curb without checking. The front right corner of the truck hit him, pulling him under the truck. Not the fault of the ice nor the driver.

Where exactly did you see the surveillance footage?

Moshiach must come immediately! Until that very moment, see to it to be quiet in shul during daavening, chazoras hashatz, layning, kaddish etc. There is plenty of time to catch up on the latest aterwards! It is not so hard, it will make a difference!
