  1. Actually, he did a pretty dumb thing . Freelancing in a Disaster Zone, is reckless and probably ASSUR L’halacha as you are putting your life in danger, in a country that has tremendously high AIDS rates , rampant disease and dead bodies in the street , no one enforcing the law !! The proof is that he had to hook up with a “couple of friends from Brooklyn” not organized by a recongnized rescue group that has accountability. Oh and yes I am also” advanced in the medical field” that’s why I STAYED HOME !!

  2. Dear Not impressed……..your probably a snag and saw a “chassid” in the picture so you decided to go off with your nasty rude remarks. however, i wonder if it was in your town if you would have the same response………helping save lives is a mitzvah wether it is a jew or not. It is bec of people like yourself that many people turn away from yiddishkeit.

  3. I never said helping save other lives wasn’t a Mitzva , and I certaintnly never mentioned diffrentiating between a saving a jew or non-jew . I merely stated going on a rescue mission ALONE , meaning without officially being part of an ORGANIZED RESCUE GROUP , is reckless and should not be promoted as a good deed or something others should copy .In fact it is ASSUR to risk your life to save another that we know is called “Chayecha Kodem”, I don’t know what a snag is , but I do have “chassid” relatives, and yes I’m frum, so you can throw your “anti-semitism” defense for another time .

  4. fellow jewish brother my name is samuel gillig yes im in the pictures together with my boss and coworker it just so happens to be that we didnt go alone we went together with the israeli army on a mission to save as many lives possible and we were well protected by 7 soldiers that were well armed and we felt good as jews to do it cause the word in haiti was jews were the only people who cared about the disaster so to all the critics it was a huge kiddush hashem ..
