Should I update my banner photo? I don’t promise to follow the results of the poll, but it would be helpful to know what others think about it.
56% No, it spreads awareness
24% Yes, it’s stale
20% Yes, I always disliked it

I know we have become inured to this Orwellian stuff but are we just supposed to move on from the fact that this network spent day after day, just a few weeks ago, screaming about the need to protect judges and their homes but are now airing stuff like this night after night:

wait until people find out that not everybody wants their social media timeline to be an echo chamber and that forcing people to unfollow & disengage with accounts that don’t suit your own personal ideology is the most chronically online thing a person can do

Shoutout to my defiant brothers and sisters. You know who you are, even if we don’t ✊🏼🫶🏼

He came in and literally beat the poor kid pounding him using hands, feet, closed fists, knees, it went on for 5 minutes straight. Yoeli wrapped both his hand over his face and took the beating like a man. Didn't cry, beg or whimper, afterwards he took his seat with a big smile.

I - yes I - was always afraid someone will bring this name up… because I lack the fortitude to talk about him.

He is the single most cruel and vicious person I have ever encountered. And *believe me* that list is deep. My own personal ‘boogeyman’.
Replying to @ShulimLeifer
The personal memories of his abuse are vivid!

One day I will have the strength to write about how it feels to be the 20th out of 25, waiting for your turn to get slapped in the face, full strength, by a grown man. How each one closer to you presents a fresh dilemma how to avoid your inevitable fate. At 5 years old.

At least this boy had the option of eating the lunch or coming earlier. We got beaten for not having the right חומש on time, not having a pencil sharpener, and not having signed tests because my parents didn't have the time to look at it just yet

THIS - but also with math, science, history, social studies, etc.
Hochul told me she wants to see an annual report after signing the Holocaust education compliance bill. ”Someone could check the box and say, ‘Yes, we are teaching it,’” she said, “I’m going to want proof of that.” forward.com/fast-forward/514…

@AgudahNews supports the state forcing holocaust education but fights the state's effort to ensure a quality education for children in the chasidish community. @nmoster @ShulimLeifer @ShlomoFelber

. @AgudahNews: Let's force the goyim to learn about the Holocaust, but let's leave our Hasidic youth completely ignorant about slavery, and any history that's part of a basic education.
It was an honor for Agudah representatives Rabbi @LabishBecker and @LeahZagelbaum to be present as Governor @KathyHochul signed a Holocaust education bill into law. Agudah Israel was proud to support this bill and thanks sponsors @nily and @AnnaMKaplan.

Incredibly sad! These images in my head of the rebbi/menahel being visibly furious and beating up a kid while 30 other kids are looking on will never not haunt me

These folks treat Jews like pets: the ones who fit their worldview get to stay. The rest get put down. The point: be wary of people who tokenize the Jews they like. 91% of Jews in America aren’t Orthodox. 75% voted Biden. This dude hates Jews and uses a minority to justify it.

Not to outdo @ShulimLeifer but here goes: 7th grade Stitchiner Cheder 15 ave and 43. We did the morning prayers in the Stitchiner Shul on 12th and 50th. Ezriel Feketa was in charge of Shachris. Yoeli refuses to come to Shachris. The punishment keeps rising first a $1.00 fine

I never thought I’d say this, but: today I wish I worked for the NY Attorney General’s office.

My heart breaks and my PTSD knows such scenes. 2 anecdotes: 1. Ezriel Feketa is a name I know because my cousin went to stitchin & once feketa sent him home covered in black and blue marks. He was taken out and switched to Ger. 2. I was “Yoeli”, except *I* never even covered up
