    There are way too many men. Lubavitcher men with kapotas giving out candy and Lollys also! This is not ok. The gaboyim should not allow it

    Amen! Thank you!

    The sad truth

    The sad truth

    This guy is right it is the parents job
    This guy most probably has no ill intentions
    Hes giving out ices so that children could make a brocho
    Or because he just likes to make people happy
    And if parents are there they can allow him to gve ices to their kids the problem is kids running around without supervision

    So if you let your kids run around without anyone watching them let this article be a reminder how suseptible children are

    And if you know people that let their kids run around without supervision influence them not to allow it

    Is that the issue?? It seems quite clear that the children made sure that the ICES were kosher….
    BUT did have any idea who this man is, that is giving them treats and telling them to come outside?

    “every shul has a candyman” Really?
    Every shul’s candyman is a known member of the community..
    If he isn’t a yid what is he doing loitering even outside.We live in mad times why is he still sround offering food & asking kids to come outside??
    What chas v shalom are people in charge waiting for?

    Parents who are commenting: you missed the point!!!!!! There was a terrible situation the other day where a little girl was molested!!!!! What do you need to be woken up????? The sugar or bracha or hasgocha is NOT the PROBLEM!!!!!!!! Your kids lives are at stake! do NOT be so naive!!!!! NO ONE who your child does not know should be giving them ANYTHING without parental consent! The schools used to have the safety kid program- not sure if they still do, to teach kids about these dangers. But even that isn’t enough!….Im not sure how many parents realize how… Read more »

    WAKE UP TIME

    doesn’t anyone have any common sense anymore??? You’re concerned about the kashrut? What if this ices was tainted with a drug? Doesn’t that occur to anyone? The fact that he’s been seen before and given to bochurim as well, doesn’t mean ANYTHING. He could be building up their trust for something horrible he has planned. YOU CANT BE TOO CAREFUL these days. Unfortunately, but if you don’t know the person (forget about the hashgocha on the label) YOU DONT TRUST ANYTHING HE GIVES YOU!!!! And that’s what has to be drilled into your children’s heads – that is, if you… Read more »

    make sure not to talk to strangers

    If we don't eat in their house...

    Growing up, my kids knew, “if we don’t eat in their house” you don’t go with them, or take anything from them.
    Hopefully if you trust someone enough to trust they standard of kashrus, your kids can trust them.
    And if you don’t really trust them that much, teach your kids to STAY AWAY.
    And teach them to scream really loudly “HE’S (SHE’S) NOT MY FATHER (MOTHER)” if anyone makes them feel uncomfortable.
    If you love your children, teach them to be safe.

    Poisoned Stickers

    Does anyone remember, maybe 10 years ago, there were pretty stickers being found in playgrounds in CH. They were laced with a poison that just through touching them, some kids got really sick!
    Teach your kids to never accept anything from strangers, ever. Even on a hot day when an Ice is very appealing

    The man giving out ices, could have other motives so why are people just concerned that the ices are not Kosher, there could be something else in the ices that could get the kids sick or he could be a pediphile you have to be careful today, and the guy is right it is the parents responsibility to teach the kids not to take anything from strangers

    Show your kids the video

    Chaim Hershkowitz just made a video about teaching kids to not talk to strangers. Get your kids to watch it and talk to them about what they saw. It’s very powerful for kids to have a sentence they could repeat to themselves so they can make a good decision when they need to

    Were the ices Kosher?
