Dear Friends, This winter, as Covid-19 swept through our household the biggest worry was, of course, keeping R' Dovid safe. Kent, his caregiver, valiantly volunteered to stay by his side for eighteen days straight, despite the risk of contracting the disease. His kindness and heroism, along with the help of friends and neighbors, brought home how much we are dependent on caring and compassionate people. We are forever indebted to our many supporters, some of whom we will never meet, but who have given of their time and money to sustain R' Dovid and our family. Although the purpose of this appeal is to ask for your continued support, I want to thank each and every one of you for staying by our side and keeping R' Dovid alive. Each one of you is a precious m...

Israel's parliament passed a law Wednesday allowing the government to share the identities of people not vaccinated against the coronavirus with other authorities, raising privacy concerns for those opting out of inoculation. The measure, which passed with 30 votes for and 13 against, gives local governments, the director general of the education ministry and some in the welfare ministry the right to receive the names, addresses and phone numbers of unvaccinated citizens. The objective of the measure -- valid for three months or until the Covid-19 pandemic is declared over -- is "to enable these bodies to encourage people to vaccinate by personally addressing them", a parliament statement said. Israel, a country of nine million people, has administered the two recommended jabs of t...

Israel’s flight ban has been extended until March 7. As has been well documented, limited flights continue to operate during this time. However, Israeli citizens or permanent residents are required to obtain special permission form the Vaadat Charigim (Exceptions Committee) to leave the country. The Vaada has been exceptionally parsimonious with granting these permits. This, unfortunately, has affected persons traveling for bona fide emergencies, as well. Over the past several days, Chaim V’Chessed has dealt with dozens of requests for emergencies, such as medical needs, dying relatives and so on, which were either ignored or denied by the Vaada. We have been able to be assist in many instances, but at times we have been unsuccessful. Join BJL on WhatsApp Status: Cl...

Baltimore, MD - Feb. 24, 2021 - The following was sent this morning by Rabbi Zvi Teichman to the membership of Ohel Moshe. Chaverim Yedidim!   As many have inquired regarding the appropriate timing for the Purim Seudah this year, as it falls out on Erev Shabbos, I am presenting a short guide for everyone's convenience.   1 - There are many who encourage the eating of the Seudas Purim during the morning some time before Chatzos - 12:19 PM. 2 - Others suggest simply beginning the Seudah before Chatzos and continuing after into the afternoon. 3 - One may also rely on the opinions who say it is sufficient to begin the Seudah before Mincha Ketana - 3:34 PM In this scenario it would be preferable to daven Mincha earlier before the Seudah. 4 - There are those who ideally be...
