    It's iresponsible to be open during the storm

    For groceries to be open and draw people to go out while the wind is blowing at 80 mph is extremely irresponsible! Only in Crown Heights. Shameful!

    thanks for the update

    To the contrary!

    I would like to publicly thank Kol Tov for being open tonight. We needed some extra things for the house that would make our family more comfortable (some for, gum is as crucial as bread in stressful times).

    There is no danger of going outside at the moment and being open at such an hour – on any given night – is a service that is much appreciated.

    P.S. Kingston Pizza was open as well and I’m sure there were children who were very happy when their father came home with a pie.

    It stated they would be open tomorrow. From 8 to noon time there will be severe winds. Imagine a mother and kids walking to buy groceries. It’s Pikuach Nefesh!
    Everyone should have listened to the warnings and stocked up BEFORE the storm!

    i disagree.

    i disagree.

    i feel that oholei torah never closes its doors, which is all good and fine, but tomorrow morning is a danger to have bochrim walk in the streets in the morning. i know its the first day of zal, but it should of been pushed off for several hours till things get calmer. i know my son went to the city tonight because he dosent want to miss yeshiva, but i dont think its very safe. as a parent i couldnt argue with him! he was insistent.

    New York, you guys gotta chill, by the time Irene gets to you its going to be a Category 1…pretty much a big rain storm, you really need to relax…

    Im in NY and all I see is a rainstorm, no big deal… seriously whats all the fuss? The major hits were in the carolinas and Virginia area and even so only coasts. Unless you live near a coast in NY you’ve got nothing to worry about.

    Always keep safe

    Always keep safe

    Even during a tropical storm with wind gusts the biggest hazard is flying debri that can be dangerous projectiles…. We know this all to well in Florida!!! Therefore stay indoors & keep away from windows or glass doors & pray for the safety of everyone… Believe me the Yiddin in Florida know how to pray with total kavanah when there is ANY threat to human life!!!

    And how sillly can people really get on this col page… come on…

    Stores will open for those who need it just in case… so then you type that they are “forcing” mothers to walk out with their kids and 80mph winds… PLEASE!!!

    I agree Zal shd start on Monday, its not fair to start with haf the bochurim who live 30 seconds from Yeshiva, what ab’ the rest?and its not safe to be in the streets at all

    no big deal?!
    Guest
    no big deal?!

    Chill? Everyone becomes an expert…. The wind alone was predicted to blow @ 80 mph in a category 1. It only takes one loose object flying at such speed to C”V kill someone. There is a reason for all the preparedness. Don’t try to be cool. BE SAFE!

    No one said “force” but rather said “cause” as in when they stay open during the morning hours at the height of the storm it sends a message of calm A false calm at a time when people should stay indoors. You vs always buy gum later. Mevinim like you are dangerous. Even if it does weaken and its not as bad it is still better to be prepared. Better safe than sorry.

    good luck
