Lakewood: Meshulachim Instructed to Wear Masks Due to Supposed Increase in Covid-19

    • Discovered America? Good morning!
      In Israel, only those who don’t take money from the government understand it and indeed never closed their shuls with large minyanim throughout the entire era and only wear masks when police show up and b”H corona knows to keep 200 feet away from them. If the politicians will tell them that the moon is made out of cheese, the sheeple will wait in a social distancing line for the end of the month to grab a piece, especially in the 9-Days.

      • Are you Jewish? If not, what are you doing on this website, and why do you insult the “sheeple” Jews as well as our 9 Days of mourning. Those who mourn will be consoled. Have you ever been to Egypt? There are Arabs!! Everyone can see stone monuments of the Egyptians, but no offspring of theirs. Are you so sure your people of wolves will still be there in 5 or 10 years?

  1. The CDC and WHO and Fauci all say that masks do NOT PROTECT against the virus. So why do they have to maskerade themselves.

    • duh its not to protect yourself, its to protect others. it prevents you from spreading it to someone else. so it makes perfect sense that people coming in need to wear masks

      • So you’re saying, let those who choke in it die, as long as other people are saved. I say, those who do not want to stand next to someone not wearing one should stay home and stop murdering people.

        One who forces others to wear a mask is a רשע מרושע, an evil, cruel, heartless and mean person who are lacking two of the three Jewish character traits; rachmanim and gomlei chassadim, because they care only about themselves and have no feelings for others.

  2. We in Chicago — a city of Chesed — have not seen Meshulachim for several months. They, or others on their behalf, should visit Shuls and Batei Medrash (especially the outdoor Minyanim) and hand out return envelopes, to enable us to do the Mitzvah of Tzedakah!

    • In New york its been business as usual the last few weeks. In Boro park, Williamsburg, Flatbush, Monsey and Lakewood as far as I know all the shuls are opened. Almost all have no restrictions. Where I daven there is a section for over 60. So yes Here in the northeast we need restrictions on those coming from Corona hotspots.

    • Only someone who does chessed can write such an awesome request – probably the first in Matzav’s history. Kol Hakavod, Mr. CJ.

    • When did Chicago change it’s name? It was the city of broad shoulders not chesed. I visited Chicago in 1956 and took the bus to Roosevelt Ave and got a pair of shoes for $6, I wore them for 5 or 8 years. I will check in later on, it’s time for my supper….I just felt something…I will report back later/.

  3. Why the word “Supposed” increase in the headline? Do you not believe the doctors? What, specifically, would these frum doctors get out of making this up? Were they not tirelessly there for the community during the height of Covid?

    Why do we need to make it sound like a conspiracy theory?

    • Well, it IS a conspiracy. Have you ever heard of a virus that encompasses every sickness and injuries under the sun???????? This proves the bogus of this so-called coronavirus. You have to be a first-class-fool to believe that coronavirus exists!!!! Secondly, the CDC and WHO (and many doctors) clearly stated that masks do NOT, do NOT, do NOT protect against a virus. Are you smarter than them? Why is it that when thousands go protesting without a mask and no social distancing, they don’t suddenly become sick with coroney baloney?

      • I’m not sure if maybe you missed the thousands of people that have died from this. I’m not sure how you deny it’s existence? I can understand if you think masks won’t help (although that against all mainstream science and most likely your personal physical as well if you’d ask) but at least that might make sense. How can you claim it doesn’t exist? That’s absurd. WHO and CDC both recommend wearing masks as it protects spread which is the point of them not to prevent you from getting it.

        • Thousands of people died? Did you see a list of these thousands of names or do you blindly believe mainstream’s bogus stories? Don’t you know that 99% of MSM is fake news? No, there were no thousands who died from a sickness called coronavirus, but there were thousands arrested, aka had coronavirus or executed, aka died from coronavirus. Quite a big difference.

          BTW Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlit”a said that according to halachah there was no mageifah and he explained that a mageifah is 3 people dying every day for 3 days in a row in a city of 500 people. In other words, .6% of the population dying daily for 3 days. And there was no such thing.

          My doctors say that coronavirus is nonsense. לא היה ולא נברא Coronavirus is not a new sickness. It’s the flu, it’s fever, etc etc etc. People have been sick with the flu and fever and whatnot for hundreds of years. Why all of a sudden a new name? You’re understanding the hoax wrong. This new name is nonsense. It doesn’t change the status of the fever or the flu.

          Here it is again besides all articles talking about the danger of wearing masks:

          “Disposable medical masks (also known as surgical masks) are loose-fitting devices that were designed to be worn by medical personnel to protect accidental contamination of patient wounds, and to protect the wearer against splashes or sprays of bodily fluids…
          “We did not find evidence that surgical-type face masks are effective in reducing laboratory-confirmed influenza transmission, either when worn by infected persons (source control) or by persons in the general community to reduce their susceptibility…”

          WHO (World Health Organization) states: There “is no evidence wearing a mask by a healthy person in a community setting can prevent infection with respiratory viruses, including COVID-19” and further concludes “universal community masking” is ineffective at preventing “infection from respiratory viruses, including COVID-19.”
          CDC states: “no significant reduction” in “transmission with the use of face”

  4. I assume this article is saying that this isn’t nice. But this actually makes sense. Because Lakewood got rid of Coronavirus some how and now we don’t want it to come back from e”y which is now unfortunately experiencing an uptick in case numbers.

    • Just because people woke up and stopped the fake testing, doesn’t mean they got rid of the so-called coronavirus. Plenty of people are sick but nobody knows about it because they don’t want the politicians to keep everyone quarantined because of them. BTW E”Y yidden are not more sick than Chu”l yidden. Whatever it is, MASKS DO NOT PROTECT AGAINST A VIRUS!

  5. Anyone who dares enter any Shul or gathering without a mask, or dares take off his/her mask after entering a Shul, or even just places the mask on his/her chin or even over mouth but not over nose, is an absolute רודף who has no regard for human life nor safety, and is totally depraved & is wicked & evil.

  6. Why does matzav make it sound like they are making an absurd statement based on “supposed” science. This is accepted in the medical world now
    I’m curious if the OL and WMSTN have asked their PCP if they should wear masks (can’t imagine?!) or do they not have a PCP and they rely on YouTube for medical information and direction?

  7. Pshat is, Matzav is censoring our comments again. Picky picky picky. Such immature babies. Being ignorant of the facts is not an excuse.
