There is no shame in using the law to protect your rights. After 10 years of rent…they want you out and needed a excuse…

CDC ITSELF admitted that plain cloth/paper masks

DO NOT WORK. The CDC itself finally admitted this truth a few days ago ! The only mask that actually helps against Covid is a serious medical/surgical quality tightly fitted N95 mask – which is super uncomfortable and couldn’t be worn by children or adults for a full day. Please look it up yourself – It was in the news.

Plenty of frum Jews who have adopted the covid as a side religious practice. Motivations are complex. Do not discount cowardice and the need to fit in.

It only takes one coward to lock a door.

I would like to say it’s because the coward was likely not frum and possibly not Jewish but there are too many frum cowards who would happily have cheered them on because the school isn’t forcing the 3 years old children to wear masks all day.

How many politicians wear masks all day? Yeah, but the kids absolutely must because Science.

Your definition of a frum coward sounds very similar to someone who cares about humanity.

Caring about humanity would revolt at little children being forced to wear masks all day. You don’t wear a mask all day. Politicians don’t wear masks all day.

The only ones wearing masks all day are the children who have no say against their oppressors.

What would revolt children is growing up to realize that their parents didn’t vaccinate them or ensure that they were masked and protected from a deadly virus.

The oppressor’s of children are the parents who don’t take care of them.

Idiocy

That’s by and far the dumbest thing I’ve read today, and it’s not even 5:00 yet. Good job.

You know kids don’t carry a high risk of serious illness, right? Maybe if you paid attention to actual science, instead of pseudoscientific nonsense, you would have realized your paranoia levels have irrevocably harmed children, and your sense of moral superiority is flagrantly unearned.

Even if they are vaccinated they stsill need to wear masks because the vaccine isn’t as effective against omicron. Or other such variants .
Also Covid isn’t a deadly disease for children. Full stop . End of story.

Two years into “two weeks to slow the spread”, and still learned nothing.

There is nothing worse than forcing children to wear masks, complete child abuse.

Are you sure?

I can think of so many things that are so much worse. Not that any of it justifies forcing children to wear masks, but, like, be real.

In English, when someone says “there is nothing worse than” it is usually used as an expression, i.e. it is just a way of talking, usually not meant to be taken literally

Lubavitch does not go by external labels whether the label be “ultra-orthodox”, “orthodox”,”conservative”,”reform”, etc. we go by the label Yidden, when that is what they actually are. the rest is something to be worked on. the heavy handed dislike that comes through in your comment isn’t necessary, even though the landlord’s behavior was absolutely inexcusable.

Why would the school even accept cameras not understood.
Please sue them and let us know that it resulted on at least a good down payment for you new building.

What is the law?

If they are following the law, no problem, they will win. If they aren’t, and the only defence is short notice and the owners don’t know about exemptions for some kids. …

And keeping kids locked out in the freezing cold is good for their health? But all in the name of covid so it must be about health…

Covid became insane.

Ok. So what the Teachers, & Children found them self’s in a surprise. Tell me the “corrupted” government is soooooooo sounds like landlord was spying on them through cameras. Etc. Covid allows that? & it’s ok for government to put on locks so that no one cant get in building? That’s the Covid guideline nowadays? to put teachers & children on the Streets? Hello safety, someone can kidnap c”v, someone could dissapeare……..what’s up with this crazy government??????? Nuts. & then blame on Covid?
