  1. Does anyone why Rav Cohen Shlit”a spoke in Yiddish with a (interesting) translation. He knows how to speak English. He has so much more to say on this topic. Why so short??

  2. Thsi is all politics, The democrats were not able to pass this when Corzine was in office. Now we have a republican governor who has national aspirations and they all of a sudden are able to pass it. It is all a set up…..

  3. Reb Simcha Bunim is truly remarkable not only did he take a stand on this issue but went, got up,& spoke for someone who never gets involved in politics this was lishma
