  1. These videos are actually very heartbreaking but not for the reasons that everyone thinks. Why are we not seeing videos like this put out by people beseeching and begging the governor to open up their beloved Yeshiva’s. Promising him we will social distance and do everything he says so we can get the chance to learn the helige torah. But rather what we see is begging and pleading to open up swimming pools and bungalow colonies. We need some soul-searching!

  2. If you are begging for camps to open, why not beg for dormitory schools to open.
    If the kid can go to overnight camp, can’t he go to overnight school?

  3. To all those saying “bad priorities because you want camp over Yeshiva”, i just want to point something out. 1) yeshivas are going on over the phone, so no major need to push on person classes (even though they are better) 2) Even if yeshivas open the summer will come and yeshivas will finish, now what???

    If you think on answering “just continue yeshiva through the summer” you should probably speak to some kids, or better yet have some of your own.

    Camps are more than just a place to play games, it’s when all the “hidden talent’s” come out. For a kid that school isn’t the easiest, summer can help him through the entire year. It’s a life saver!!!

    I believe that if there’s a way to open them we should.

      Surely this writer doesn’t have any kids or he would see the devastating impact the school closure and so-called” phone learning” is having on our children’s learning. Maybe we should have camp over the phone as well? Learning over the phone isn’t even a partial fix. Its what we do only when we have literally no other option.

      “you should probably speak to some kids, or better yet have some of your own.”
      We should leave one of the most important decisions in Yiddishkeit i.e our children Chinuch up to our kids?? I can only imagine what supper must look like in your house (ice cream with a side of soursticks).
      I think the point is that while appreciating how important camp is, let’s not lose track of our priorities. Yeshiva will always come before camp.

  4. Why would someone trying to convince the governor show such physical contact over and over? Wouldn’t examples of how social distancing can work be better??
