    but the message is clear – don’t take chapers, even if they offer you cheaper service – which they don’t

    I myself never would use those cabs, I always use the official taxis. They are so much more reliable. She’ll never get her stuff back!

    Step 2: Money. Can some rich gevir in Cr Hts give this poor girl a few hundred to comfort her? It’s no big deal. Here’s where chesed talks.

    I feel so very bad for her. i was brought up, as were many of my friends and acquaintances that if you lose something, you should be menader to give tzedakah in multiples of 9.
    Yael, I hope you find your valuables and that you can still have a wonderful yom tov.

    Always check you have the correct # of bags when you leave the cab. Don’t pay the driver till you & your stuff are out. And be careful to put your wallet away before you pay him. It’s a shame this happened, but we can all learn a lesson. I’ll give some $$ to replace her cash. If someone wants to make a donation box in a store on Kingston I’ll drop some cash in tomorrow. Knowing the generosity of the people here it’ll soon exceed the $2000 she lost. In which case, the rest can be given to Rabbi… Read more »

    so maybe you will be the one to sponsor a couple hundred dollers its not alot

    Let us know where the box will be!

    It will certainly be very nice for us to help her, especially since the $2000.00 were probably hard earned, and that probably she spend a long time earning it!

    I too hope she will have a wonderful time and I also hope she will gain so much b’ruchnius anyways. (Hopefully b’gashmius too!!)

    Record

    All this talk about a relatively common occurence, raises the question: Will this get into the Guiness book of Records?

    BTW: A Yellow Cab driver would simply say he did not see anything like that. “Maybe the next passenger took it – I don’t have eyes in the back of my head to see everything. It happens every day without my knowing…”

    was a box made to collect money for the unfortunate girl??
    if it hasn’t it should be made!!!
    its a shame she had to learn a lesson the hard way…..

    It didn't happen to you!

    It didn't happen to you!

    “I can’t believe this happened to me,” she tearfully exclaimed.

    Yael, we all feel for you, but remember this, it didn’t happen to you. YOU left it in the cab. I would rather have heard, “Oh, I can’t beleive I was so careless as to leave my most valuable piece of luggage in the cab!”

    A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND INDEED-With all respect for the previous comments

    I am so sorry to have an opportunity like this to “sell” wisdom and be clever. Yes, we can rather forgive the others than our own mistakes. It is not a positive approach to torture yourself and I think the first thing you should do is not to blame yourself. It can happen to anybody. I hope, only once, if not at all. I understand that the value of the jewels is irreplaceable when they are precious gifts or unique/artistic examples. Think like this: you are hungry and moneyless in a strange foreign place where all shops are fulfilled with… Read more »

    Reb Meir Baal Haness really works. Take this girl into Rabbi Sholom Duchman’s office on Eastern Parkway, and let her give Tzedokah and IYH she will have good news

    In the end, she is safe & unhurt, unlike that poor girl very badly hurt by a hit & run drunk driver in Flatbush yesterday. It’s money & jewelry…these things can be replaced. B”H, she is OK. Upset & worried, but she will get over that. A broken body can’t always be fixed.

    it was just yom kipur 3 days ago
    you should be more careful with the way you speak about other yidin (and not just right after y”k, the whole year, but at least right after y”k)

    maybe you should apologize (just make a comment that it was a mistake etc.)
