Chowing Chulent, Chocolate Calories? Corona Cardiac Cure!

This past week, I went to my first Shalom Zachor and first Kiddush in months.

Thereafter, I realized that there is one good aspect of the Corona Virus. Namely, our eating has become normalized.
For 3 months we did not overeat on Chulent and Cishke, Candy and Coke. All those Craved Calories, that in the past would have increased out girth, were missing in action.

Politicians Penetrate, Pierce Padlocked Public Play Parks

Seems like they are done with Corona in Brooklyn, and the Governor has allowed the parks to open but the Mayor still refuses to let the children play. Some fine vigilantes along with public officials have cut the locks and opened various parks in Boro Park and Flatbush.

Hopefully, this will end the hypocrisy allowing thousands to demonstrate racial equality, but keep kids locked up with nothing to do in the summer.

I am not sure what to make of this. OTOH, we should not be teaching children to flout the rules, but OTOH, when the rules become draconian, one must take a stand.

Kudos to Felder, Yaeger and Eichenstein.

Marc's Malkhei Makes Mark - Iggerot Malkhei Rabbanan

Dr. Professor Marc Shapiro has published a most interesting book. It is comprised primarily of Shaalot and Teshuvot, yet unlike all other Shaalot and Teshuvot which feature a posek responding to many various individuals, this one has questions by one man (Prof Shapiro) asked to many different poskim.

Since the author and many of the poskim are contemporary, this makes for some very fascinating reading. Additionally, Prof Shapiro is currently giving lectures with many insights into the background of the questions; and due to Covid-19, these podcasts can be downloaded free from the TIM website.
