VIDEO: Rabbi Paysach Krohn: If you Get a Ticket for Parking in a Handicapped Spot You Should Dance from Joy

VIDEO: Earlier this week, we reported about Rabbi Paysach Krohn addressing several Lakewood crowds about the importance of caring for the less-fortunate, particularly the handicapped.

In this video, Rabbi Krohn speaks strongly about those who violate the law and park in those designated spots – without proper credentials.

He also quotes Gedolim who say that parking in a handicapped spot to go Daven, is a Mitzvah Ha’ba B’Aveirah.

  1. As a person who is qualified to a handicap spot, I constantly see cars at the local shuls in town parked in those spots. When I look to see if they have a tag or plates, I am no longer shocked to see that these cars DO NOT have any!!

    Shame on those who do not care!!

  2. It’s embarrassing that something like this has to be officially addressed.
    Here’s another issue: Not signalling before turns. But why should I bother signalling anyway? The signal is not for me, it’s for Yenem. . .

  3. My take in all of this is; and I’m not suggesting any of the above posters -but just making a point. While some people always like to be busy looking for what’s wrong with a FEW of us, I like to look at what is so very good about MOST of us. There is enough middos tovos, middas hachesed and hatova (goodness) done in this town B”H to outweigh any of these complaints that some of us are so busy with.

    And btw I dont park at a handicapped spot – in fact I saw s/o last week parking at the handicapped spot at a bank to use the ATM and I told him that if a police were to see you it would be a heavy ticket to which he moved …. only for another person (a woman) who was not handicapped to take that spot.
    My point is lets be busy with the good…

  4. I think R’ Krohn’s point was to make others sensitive to those in need. A handicapped person has to sometimes make a huge effort just to get out. To come to a store or shul and not be able to park as they are entitled to in the spot reserved for such, very often means they (alone, or with the family members escorting them) have to turn around and go back home. Take the challenge of living this lifestlye for one day, and you will see why it is such an important issue to bring to awareness. There are MANY men in this town who do not daven b’tzibbur bec. they have given up making the effort to drive to shul, only to have to turn around to go back home bec. they can’t walk the distance.

  5. this is only a part of an entire speech by Rabbi Krohn asking people to be there for others in times of challenge. Be there for your friends when there is any type of devastation. A family loss, Sandy Storms, loss of income, disability…..

    Rabbi Krohn should be blessed for uplifting our hearts with words of inspirations and at the same time reminding us to treat each other with respect. we forget when we are so busy with our lives. we fail and forget about others.

  6. “you should DANCE from joy” Great comment! My sister would walk, walk, and walk to find a parking space if she could walk: she can’t. Born with a birth defect many years ago, there’s not much she can do. Lesson here: count your blessings.
