    Sorry to hear

    But I really don’t think we need this publicized on our own website for our children to see…

    Too many tragedies as of late. My heart goes out to this young man’s family and friends. I’m so sorry for your loss.

    A child died. My condolences to his family.
    This is a good (albeit tragic) warning to other children to avoid stupid risk taking.
    BTW, why are your children on this website?? It’s not exactly Uncle Moishe! You be protecting your children from the internet altogether. What does a child need to know about the shidduch crises, muggings, etc.

    My son and his friends used to jump from one roof top to another, and I told him if he doesnt stop i am going to call the cops, I feel very bad for the parents of the child, May be RIP

    Why would someone do that?

    That is the stupidest thing I ever heard who could jump ten feet? The boy obviously wasn’t in his right mind!

    What I find amazing is that they have been doing it for a year without anyone getting hurt! That is a big jump.
    I am very sorry for the family and friends and their loss. RIP

    movies are the source to this problem !
    it really effects how you walk, speak , mindset and what you do

    There are children climbing up on the roof of 770 every shabbos.
    We need someone to make sure that they don’t have access.
    I , as a mother, sit home every shabbos afraid that my kids will be climbing.

    Yes, parents should educate their kids not to be on roofs or jump across them, and yes, parents to do their best to ensure their young children are always supervised by adults, but parental responsibility doesn’t replace building owner responsibility – especially if they are torah-observant. Make a fence on your roof is just as much a mitzva as keeping shabbos, kosher, ETC.

    You, as a mother, shouldn’t be scared of your kids climbing.
    You, as a mother, should be scared of your kids Ch”V falling and getting injured or killed.
    You, as a mother, need to either have your kids stay home Shabbos, or have a responsible person be in charge of keeping them safe.
    enough said.

    #2, I think it NEEDS to be on our site so our kids do not try this.

    Boys and Girls climb on the Roofs and Sukkah structures of FREE and mansions next door during davening on .Shabbosim..(thus the fathers are occupied for long periods of time).. I observe this almost every week throughout the year (except when snowing of course)… some even encourage very young siblings to join them…and All wear unsafe for climbing slippery Shabbos shoes!
