Chief Rabbi Lau Suspends Dayan Who Refused COVID Vaccine

Israel's Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi David Lau has suspended a Dayan for having refused the COVID-19 vaccine. “It is forbidden for a person to damage his own body and all the more so that of someone else,” he stated. Full Story

Go Chabad!

It’s amazing seeing these Rabbi’s come out in such strong support of science and truth.

“Every person is being asked one simple question, either bow down to God and have the divine presence protect you or you’re going to bow down to Bill Gates … I’m calling for Nuremberg 2.0. These people need to be brought to justice.” WHY ARE WE BEING FORCE-FED AN EXPERIMENTAL INJECTION THAT HAS NEVER BEEN USED OR TESTED ON HUMANS WHILE IGNORING THE THERAPEUTICS THAT WERE USED SUCCESSFULLY ON PRESIDENT TRUMP AND MILLIONS OF OTHERS FOR CENTURIES AROUND THE WORLD? THIS IS NOT “SCIENCE” – IT IS MEDICAL TYRANNY. ABOVE ALL – IT IS POLITICS! BILL GATES AND THE CDC… Read more »

You’re confusing rabbonim and doctors.
Ask the proper questions of each.
Have bitul and emunas chachomim.

Doctors are the authority for this shailo

See Aruch Chaim, Shin Cuf Het, Rofeh amar — and Magen Avraham, sif katan vuv.

The rofeh in fact, is the authority in such cases, and according to MA, we even compel the patient to accept the treament.

It is very well tested, and comparatively safe

The vaccine was tested last year on more than 21,000 volunteers. Millions have taken the vaccine since then.

The number of severe reactions is about 11 per million. Almost all of those are treated on the spot and recover without any problems

Good leadership

I love seeing Rabbonim standing up and fighting for the truth and the good! I hope they keep up the fight and save klal yisroel from the virus called covid and the other virus called disinformation.

What about the fact that 99.98% of the people that get Covid recover? Is it better to get injected with experimental toxins that nobody knows the long term effects of?

Not entirely true. About 0.5% (half of one percent) of people die from Covid from the entire overall population, including people who got Covid and people who never got sick with Covid. If you are older, or have preexisting conditions, there is a higher chance of dying. If you are over 80 and get Covid, you have a 50% chance of dying. It is a very serious illness.

The mortality rate for the 80 plus age group is closer to 5%, certainly not 50%.
Even 5% is a lot but most of those could also be prevented with early treatments using Ivermectin for example, per the protocols put forth by the FLCCC.
The mortality rate would then drop to less than 1% percent for that age group.
In any event, while the vaccine may have a place and time for those who are extremely high risk, it is certainly unnecessary for the masses and should certainly not be imposed.

8% for older males.

Think of COVID19 as a cold that kills.

People have been trying to cure the common cold for a very long time.

There is no real support for ivermectin in the medical literature and there is no reason expect that tthere would be.

Your figures are interesting but incorrect. Its 5% of c19 positive, not 50%.

Why is a vaccine safe when Israelis are being the experiment.
Covid we know what can happen..
The vaccine effects are unknown.
Oh and we also don’t know if it works cuz Israel is usually on lockdown

1) As a previous reader noted, over 99.97% of people recover without ANY intervention. 2) According to many doctors, natural antibodies are more effective than the vaccine for maintaining immunity. 3) The FDA is unsure the long-term efficacy and safety of the Pfizer vaccine, as well as its ability to stop the spread of Covid-19 which is why they have not yet approved it but only allowed for its emergency use. (See the FDA’s Q&A on the Pfizer vaccine.) 4) There are available early treatments for both medium and high risk individuals. 5) While the vaccine may be useful for… Read more »

One thing I definitly agree with u on, is the NO ONE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES CAN BE FORCED TO DO ANYTHING AGAINST THEIR WILL! And that’s including, not letting them fly, kicking them out of shul, kicking their kids out of school. In simple terms excluding them from society, which is basically forcing them to do it or else never have to do with anyone again.

The problem is that the trials were never designed To address this very group. The high risk. They addressed those with mild to moderate symptoms. I could go through the rest of the flaws, but it couldn’t fail to give the intended results.
I’m not pointing a finger except at those who are at the very root of this sloppy science. There, some things are just too stupid to be stupid.

Governments should not be able to force vaccines upon citizens. But private organizations can do as they wish, so schools, airlines, employers, shuls … they absolutely can impose their own rules. Don’t like the rules? Go elsewhere.

Actually natural antibodies are not working out

Manaus reached 66% infection rate, and then one month later infections took off again.

Cooking the virus with millions of cases only produces smarter virus.

Rabbi Lau psak not based on TRUE science !
February 18, 2021 12:48 am

The CDC answers with this: there’s just not enough information available to say when we should stop social distancing and wearing a mask. Scientists need to study the COVID-19 vaccines in “real world” conditions before making any recommendations.

Doctors also don’t know if the vaccine keeps someone from spreading the virus. You could just become asymptomatic, even vaccinated, and still spread the virus.

So, even if you get both doses of the vaccine: wear a mask, stay 6 feet apart, avoid crowds and wash your hands.

No one should be forced to take any vaccine, especially younger people.

The test data for every single vaccine, including statistics on efficacy rates, are all publicly available.

Questions like yours are why basic science should be taught in all of our schools.

It was tested on 21,000+ volunteers and since then many many millions have taken the vaccine,

The rate for severe reactions is 11 per million, almost all are treated on the spot and recover with no problems.

There are only a few isolated cases from all those many many millions that were more serious than that.

So, yes, the vaccine is now fantastically well tested.
