They are asking for a preliminary injunction, immediate relief, or else they will be irreparably harmed. However, it usually takes at least a week, maybe two, but if they win, camp can be ordered to open immediately.

The point is not to open camps

They should have also added dr howard Zucker to the lawsuit because he was the one that made the decision

this is 100% legal so no one say anything about us making a chillul Hashem.

Remember

Not only is it not a chilul Hashem, but it is also so important for Yidden to stand up for themselves and their rights to be able to operate in a way the community feels it is best served. When Jews stand back and let people push them around, nothing good happens.

Finally, taking a stand. ALL TOGETHER.

When is the lawsuit? The lawsuit could happen after summer. One year without camps is not the end of the world. The parents dealt with their children since March, two months won’t be bad. There are other camps in America that are open.

What??

You obviously don’t have kids at home

Is it only Jewish camps that are not allowed?

FIRST: I think all camps should be allowed to open, with proper precautions of course!

I am not so clear on what NYS law says and how the legal system works. Would someone please clarify here how this disallowal of camps opening in NYS has anything to do with RELIGION? (That is the grounds of the lawsuit:)

Just askin’ — NOT trying to make a case in favor of the governor: IN NO WAY DO I AGREE WITH CUOMO!

Maybe

Stopping “Camp Baseball” and “Camp Soccer” from opening doesn’t have any religious impact, therefore they can’t bring religious education as a reason why they shouldn’t be shut down.
Camps that provide religion on the other hand, have this added reason why they are not allowed to be shut down.
