  1. Then we wonder why their is anti- semitism! We have to be careful! It is reckless behavior like this that causes anti- semitism.
    I am sure you’re going to say NO it’s all MinHashamyim. Well Hashem wants us to act carfuly not to antagonize our neighbors.
    The news of this ban is all across the nation, what do you think this says about us!

  2. Please! Together with the news about the outbreaks in Disneyland, California, in Oregon, in Washington, in Texas, etc. According to the CDC, between Jan 1 2019 and March 21 2019, measles has been reported in 15 states:

    Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Texas, and Washington.

    The bigger chillul hashem is the way we are treating “unzere” who make different choices than we do.
    All through the ages, that is what brought increased anti-semitism …
