Letter | My brother died alone. Why are hundreds attending these funerals?
I am a committed Jew. My brother died last week and was buried virtually alone due to regulations about crowds and social isolation. It made me very sad.
Now, we read that in certain areas of the Orthodox community, rules of social isolation are ignored and people are going to home minyans or funerals or weddings. These people are fools.
Instead of righteous indignation, chastise those who think it is alright to sacrifice the needs of the community in order to satisfy their own selfish needs. I’m no fan of the mayor, but in this case, Bill de Blasio is correct!
