    Israel needs to do something about the poor electricity regulations. Not the first death I’m hearing about due to electric issues there. The govt needs to up their game.

    This is a tragedy of enormous proportion.
    Landlord and his electrician needs to held fully accountable
    Not only financially but criminally too
    It is incumbent on the Rabbi and the community to facilitate that by not allowing the enormity to be forgotten or swept under the corporate carpet
    The township must be actively involved to ascertain no landlord feels it is worthwhile to cut corners on essential maintenance and repairs.

    It’s terrible that this article has to go into so many adjectives and other nonsense to tell the story. A Jew died, in the time that she and everyone around her should have felt joy there was tragedy. We should all mourn to the point that hashem refuses to hold back moshiach anymore.
    Mourn achim! , we should all mourn to the point where our sorrow climbs to shamayim and all they hear from us is heart wrenching tears!

    the landlord accountable?
    Guest
    the landlord accountable?

    i mean, if the family can benefit from some type of liability insurance that would be good, but why paint the landlord as an ogre? seems to me he/she sent someone in to take care of a reported problem and the repairman was incompetent. why blame the landlord?

    Response to # 15

    It needs investigation
    Landlord vicariously liable and if repairman at fault and repairman competent insurance will pay out
    However there is criminal element, manslaughter
    It is not an accident
    It was negligence of enormous proportion

    understood, but the question is, whose negligence? if this was reported to the landlord as a problem and he/she failed to act on it immediately then it is indeed negligence and, as you point out, possibly worse. however, if this was newly reported and the landlord sent in the repairman when he was informed of the situation then i wouldn’t label that negligence. after all, a problem must first manifest before it can be addressed.

    This does not sound like a new problem.Why was the land lord renting an appt. that was not safe? Was he greedy for money? Sounds like a complete electrical and plumbing overall was needed before this place was safe to live in.I have a son who trained as a plumber and this tragedy did not have to happen.Sounds like living in a tent would have been safer,If a couple cannot afford a safe place to live,perhaps they should wait to be married.

    Frum Jews : It is in your power to change government of Israel

    Bs”d I am writing this as someone who came to Israel 26 years ago from a Western European country with very high safety standards. Obviously a government that according to US Heritage House has an integrity rating of 41% and spends 220 Billion nis of tax funds – half of them on itself and its 26 ministries (one ministry the M of Housing has in turn 26 sub-units, while I would not be surprised if in that Ministry there are a few hundred thousand Jews waiting for affordable housing around Israel) in short this kind of government so far has… Read more »
