  1. Times of Israel website mocks our Gadol and his comments in their edition today. We all need to go on that article’s comment section and loudly protest.

  2. The Rosh Yeshiva shlita didn’t say that the Frum Jews who do Aveiros are b’meizis. Rather he said that they aren’t shogeg. Big difference!

Klal Yisrael outlived the Antonine Plague, Black Plague, Tubercolosis, Cholera, Spanish Flu, and Polio. We can outlive the Corona Virus!

    In fact, that’s not an esoteric midrash.
    It’s all over Torah bichsav and peh.
    Let’s start with that.
