KIDDUSH HASEHEM – VIDEO: A Lakewood Yeshivah boy and a crying birthday boy at the Mets Game

When Shaya Shapiro saw a birthday boy crying about a missed foul ball at the Mets game today, he knew he had to do something.

Shaya, immediately got up, and took the ball he caught and handed it to the boy – making his birthday one he will never forget.

Impressed, the father of the boy asked where the boy studied, and said he wanted to call the Rabbi at the school to tell him what type of boys his Yeshiva is producing.

He handed the teen $100, and told him to give it to Rabbi Newman’s Yeshiva in Lakewood as a donation.

NOTE: Video contains images of women wearing sleeveless shirts.)

    Very impressive!! It’s actions like these that put our nation in good light.
    Can we know which Yeshiva he is from, as I would also like to donate. A yeshiva that produces such boys, deserve our support!

    The boys involved in this are cousins and outstanding Baalei Middos. They have huge hearts too. It does not surprise me one bit.

  • Yidlover says:

  • Avi says:

    @by trying to keep halacha. With whatever respect is due don’t go on the internet and expect to see only ladies dressed like the ones in Lakewood.

    It’s not like you need to use this venue for business.

    You’re checking out the hock like everyone else if you’re worried about halacha you’ll throw throw all your internet devices in the ocean.

    Kol Tov.

    • ROBERT ROMANO says:

      I AGREE WITH YOU “KOL-TOV”… I THOUGHT THE SAME THING WHEN I READ THAT PERSONS COMMENT… HOW NEGATIVE THAT INDIVIDUAL WAS AND IS…
      LOL …. “IF YOUR WORRIED ABOUT HALACHA YOU’LL THROW ALL YOUR INTERNET DEVICES IN THE OCEAN”…

  • RebRambo says:

    Wonderful Kiddush Hashem!

    “Trying to keep halacha”

    Yuk. Yuk.

    Get off the Internet. Problem solved.

  • Esther mirel says:

    esteezim@gmail.com , I want to say thank you to shays parents for raising a child with the awareness and sensitivity he showed . He didn’t have time to think he acted which shows there is a lot of work being done on the home front and the yeshivah ! Ashrei yoladidcha!! May your family continue to bring nachas to Hahsem ans others ! Thank you !

  • Tt says:

    @Avi 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  • Lkwddrvr says:

    Well done shaya! The more times frum Jews act like this in public, the less hate there will be. We can all learn a lesson from this story. Grab every opportunity to make a Kiddush hashem! It can be letting someone go in line ahead of you in a store or an opportunity to make a kids day. It’s very simple and goes a very long way. Thank you shaya for the lesson!

  • Halacha is Halacha says:

    @avi and @RebRambo im not one that usually comments…

    I’m just curious, are you trying to imply that anyone on the internet is not keeping Halacha???? Yourselves included???? You don’t think it’s possible that someone has internet access and has this one site to see any news he might find important and still wants to keep his yiddishkeit intact…. just because someone is reading the Lakewood scoop (and maybe it’s takeh not for parnasa….) doesn’t mean there’s any excuse to see what is 1000% assur

    If you feel otherwise what’s your heter to be on it yourself…..

    • trying to keep halacha says:

      thank you
      I personally felt wasn’t worth arguing with anyone ,Its a shame because i simply brought up in a RESPECTFUL way a 100%halachily issue, i was ridiculed

      • You arent trying hard enough says:

        If you want to keep halacha dont go on the internet

        • trying to keep halacha says:

          Explain the intelligence of that response please
          You want to tell me that if you go on internet and the scoop you dont have to keep halacha or care?

  • Eli says:

    Can someone please post this video on the app.com? This way their followers will possibly have some positive comments for a change.

  • david G says:

    did he win the game?
    if he gave a home run ball that would be a story!
    a foul ball from a met game is not nothing compared to a foul ball from a yankee game!!
    LETS GO YANKEES!!!!
    LETS GO METS!!!!!
    isn’t that what the point of the story is? did i miss something?

    • ROBERT ROMANO says:

      DAVID G… THE BEST PLACE FOR YOUR HEAD TO BE RIGHT NOW IS IN AN OSTRICH HOLE WITH THAT SORT OF THINKING…..BECAUSE WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET ….. SHAYA SHAPIRO’S PARENTS RAISED HIM WITH THE RIGHT WAY OF THINKING, REASONING AND DOING UNTO OTHERS…. SOUND CORRECT BUDDY…..?????

  • Bubbie Zelda says:

    # 14 very well said I agree a 100 %. I myself try to do it all the time. . Also agree with Esther Mire I am surprised to see nobody else mentioned it. The Yeshiva deserves the credit, But so do the parents, When a child is born the parents teach the child the right midos from day number one, Our children were very lucky to grow up also with the grandparents and were taught by them too, Lets not forget that, By the way its also important who the child’s friends are,

    • ROBERT ROMANO says:

      “DAVID G” “YOU” WOULD HAVE KEPT THE BALL EITHER WAY, FOUL OR NOT… I GUARANTEE YOU THAT… JUST AS SURE THAT YOUR BREATHING YOU WOULD HAVE LAUGHED AT THAT CRYING BOY…. WHAT SHAYA SHAPIRO DID MAKES YOU THE CRY BABY…. METS GAME YANKEE GAME.. WHO CARES… HE STILL GAVE THAT BOY THE BALL AND WAS VERY KIND IN DOING SO..AND THOUGHT NOTHING OF HIMSELF IN KEEPING THAT BALL.. SHAYA SHAPIRO DESERVES SEASON TICKETS FROM THE METS ORGANIZATION ,, AND THE YANKEE ORGANIZATION FOR ALL THAT MATTERS… SHAYA SHAPIRO YOUR A HERO IN THAT BOYS FAMILY’S EYES… GOD BLESS YOU FOR YOUR ACT OF KINDNESS AND BEING A TRUE YOUNG MAN…. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK…. AND GOD BLESS RABBI NEWMAN’S YESHIVA FOR INSTILLING AND TEACHING SHAYA SHAPIRO AND YOUR YOUNG MEN WITH GREAT SELFLESS ACTS OF KINDNESS TOWARDS THEIR FELLOW MAN…..

      GREAT STORY LAKEWOOD SCOOP…..

  • Shepsil says:

    Video clearly contains image of a non tzniusdig woman. Please remove this michsol ASAP. I’m quite shocked that TLS would post this video.

  • RebRambo says:

    To the frummer than thou crowd:

    The point is as Avi said: you can keep Halacha from here up the Wazoo but the Internet is the Internet and yep, stuff happens. So, play it safe and dial the news number.

    • sam says:

      Kidush Hashem???? What a Chilul Hashem that a Yeshiva boy is at a baseball game! this is the biggest bizoyon!

    • james says:

      The argument here is not about the “internet”. Its about “theLAKEWOODscoop”. Its about whether TLS represents itself as a site suitable for Shomerei Halacha who can feel comfortable browsing this site at any given moment without the need to be concerned about viewing non tznius pictures or videos. And in that sense Rambo, you are clearly in the wrong here. People assume that TLS represents Lakewoods Ihr Hatorah values and if this is not the case then TLS is misleading the Lakewood Tzibbur

  • Bubbie Zelda says:

    Agree with # 20 ,

  • TorahTrutb says:

    Can someone please point to to any Halacha that says this video posting is Asur? Last time I checked, the Rambam says it’s asur to be MISTAKEL afilu betzpah kitana. Now for all of your Frumakin, MISTAKEL means to “stare” to look for gratification, it does not mean incidental seeing (which this no doubt is). If that was the criteria, you would be unable to walk down the street, go to a store, or Wenger your place of work. Now I’m not saying it’s not perhaps a Middus Chasidus, or even a proper Hanhaga, that that’s a very far cry from the silly comments here’s.

    • James says:

      @TirahTrutb

      Would you allow magazines in your home with pictures of women dressed like the one on this clip because “only Histaklus is Assur”?????

  • Bonnie says:

    Rabbi Newman must really be great but what we must realize is that actions like this come from a strong upbringing. He must have parents and grandparents that taught him how a yid must act. I’m sure the Yeshiva is great but such actions come from the home I am sure that his parents were not shocked when they saw what Shaya did. He did exactly how his parents taught him to behave his whole life.
    Whoever they are – GREAT JOB

  • New Halachos says:

    Lhalalcha only HISTAKLOS is assur. Histaklus constitutes staring , an intense looking. I wonder if all these people how who think that a passing glance at a un tzneus woman is assur hos do they walk in the street.
    So it is totaly not a halacha issue. If you want it may be a haahkafa issue. Not sure.
    Anyway a great story and more acts like this would lessen anti jewish sentiments.

  • James says:

    To all you pro-kiddushers out there, lets change the scenario. If a “Lakewood Yeshiva Boy” went to a movie theater and gave up his seat for a non jew and had to stand the whole time etc and the other party got all emotional and took pictures and gave him $100 for his yeshiva etc would you also consider that to be a kiddush hashem?

  • TorahTruth says:

    To James: yes I would and I do, but you’re missing the point. I’m not criticizing people who want to avoid any incidental viewing of someone not dressed to our standards, it’s a great madreigah. But to use the name “trying to keep Halacha” and by inference saying that TLS and anyone reading this post is “not” keeping Halacha is frankly absurd.

  • Abby says:

    Why does everything need to be posted. Very nice but takes away from the act by videoing it and posting it.

  • Educator says:

    I like to go on to TLS and quickly peruse what is going on in town. I was surprised at the picture shown of women inappropriately dressed. I specifically use this website because I trust TLS to be careful on what they write and show. This is the first time I can remember seeing something inappropriate. The story could have been covered without the picture of the ladies. I think TLS should be more careful in the future. I do appreciate them keeping us on top of town news.

  • Avi says:

    To all the righteous heroes of our generation complaining about tznius.

    Your hashkafa is unwanted if you spend your time by clicking on the link of a story that clearly says it’s about a Mets baseball game.

    Everyone else who clicked on this story isn’t pretending to be some sort of Rabbi.

    If you’re argument is that you want to persue the news going on in this town take that argument and shove it into your gas tank. There are plenty of other ways to find out news if you’re worried about the essence of morality.
    You can call Kol Mivaser.

    Don’t blame TLS for posting an inspiring story that is an amazing Kiddush Hashem.

    You’re a glass half empty person if you find fault in this.

    And yes if you’re genuinely worried about Halacha you wouldn’t be on the device you’re on right now because the lowest segments of society can be seen in 1 click.

    Don’t play G-d and express the positive nature you see in this story if you see any and if you don’t start a blog and post all the negativity you have there.

    Have a wonderful day.

  • Avi says:

    @by trying to keep halacha
    Nobody said anything to ridicule or insult you personally, all we’re saying is this is a public forum the site does a great job by not posting shmutz and zeh hu.

    Just don’t expect everything to be perfect 😎
