  1. Instead everyone go to grocery stores! Men, woman, girls, and boys of all ages!! No difference if you’re very young or very old. And Forget about any type of social distancing! Cram into those aisles!
    I’m obviously joking but this is a very sad joke. We can’t daven or learn but we could all go to the store?????
    I’ve been to most stores in Lakewood but didn’t want to go in because they were to crowded

  2. I wish that it was true. I can see one of the Yeshiva buildings from my window, and car after car of yungerleit are pulling up. The chevrah walk right into the unlocked doors of the Yeshiva building with piles of seforim without a care in the world. Listen to Reb Uren’s message and stay home!

  3. Lakewood Yidden were waiting for leadership while thousands in Lakewood were exposed to this plague. Where are the Roshei HaYeshiva and why haven’t we heard from them?
    Why has it taken so long to finally tell Acheinu what the world already knew for atleast a week. Stay home. Stay away from crowds. It’s been at least a week since Frum doctors have advised us. Where are the leaders when we need them most?

    • As we all know, the Roshei Hayeshiva and Rabbonim have been working around the clock talking to other Gedolim and Doctors, and have been increasing guidelines for weeks already.
      In any case, how can you post such blatant loshon hora for an entire public, especially at a time when the entire Klal Yisroel is being mechazek in not speaking loshon hora.

  4. And a week ago there were no restrictions at all in NJ from any place. What’s your point?

    This is an unprecedented event full of unknowns. Circumstances changes things.
