  1. BD”E
    This comes up every time we hear about these tragedies. Was he wearing a reflector? Was there ample street lighting.

  2. He was a man who suffered a lot in his lifetime, he just moved back from EY to make a fresh start. Hid neshama should just have the peace that it did not have in his lifetime. He had a lot of tzaros one after another.

  3. Dear concerned taxpayer. My heart would have been warmed had you instead called yourself concerned Yid and opened with comments of empathy and at the end added your concerns toward prevention.

  4. Maybe instead of critical comments on Matzav, you should start an awareness campaign and incest some real effort into people wearing reflectors.
