  1. I wasn’t there so I may be totally out of line, but it seems a little too much that lately everytime there’s an event with a crowd of some sort we seem to need to mobilize a police force, and if the crowd is a littler bigger than big, then we get the ocean county sharpshooters and a swat team on location. What’s wrong with a few organizers (with radios if it looks better) but all this police presence totally unnecessary.

  2. why did they need the cops? regular lakewood event- police!!
    sefer torah,parlor meeting,are they soon going to be in shul for shacris or at our shabbos tables??
    if we were so worried with crowd control we have chaverim

  3. Mourning is a process. We have to slowly move on with our lives and learn to deal with this loss.

    Baruch Hashem we have a gadol like Rabbi Finkel in our midst.

  4. I agree 100% with#1 the whole cop situation is out of control at one point there were at least 5 cop cars parked on sunset doing nothing and the way they surrounded maran shlita was in really bad taste ps is there video of the event?

  5. the problem was there was hundreds of people and it was getting very dangerous kids were getting hurt.
    I am sure they realize next time they should find a much larger place with better organization.

  6. The police were there to deal with traffic issues. Prior to the Rosh Hayeshiva’s arrival there were many people standing in the street blocking traffic. When the officer saw the hundreds of people rushing towards the RV he saw a potential dangerous situation and called in for backup. The Mir too was caught off guard as they have never seen such a large turnout in the past as they did last night.

  7. Mr Arik Levin: B’H we are zoche to have Gedolim in our midst who travel across the world at tremendous personal sacrifice L’Hagdil Torah U’lHaadira! HoRav Finkel’s Shlit”a’s arrival in Lakewood is not here to detract from the mourning we are all experiencing. It is not vying for attention that that would make people forget the pain. The message is here to uplift and inspire and motivate us to seek greater heights in Kiyum Mitzvos, Limud Hatorah and Kovod Talmidei Chachamim.

  8. youre obviously on a higher madrega than am i. i wish this dor were zocheh to have a neshama like laibel kletzky remain here for a while longer. i sincerily hope that while r finkel is in boro park he will be able to offer some sort of tiny comfort to the kletzky family who are in such unimaginable pain right now. and i hope the rov has soothing words for klal yisroel becuz ill never get over this pain , its like i lost my own little brother
