  • change says:

    How is this story and episode going to change jewish people?Nothing happens for no reason!WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO NOW BESIDE SAYING OY NEBECH ??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? perhaps beside a “oy nebech” minimize personal enjoyment and feel with others pain as a family mourns such a tragic horrific incident .WAKE UP AND SHORTEN SHETEILS.BRING BACK KLAL YISROEL PROTECTION CALLED TZNIUS.THANK YOU

    • Shifra says:

      Get a life. It is people like you that sow more division and pirud in klal yisroel. It is always the women’s fault when tragedy strikes, right? the men are so perfect! Your judging of others, your spreading hate in klal yisroel, your lack of self esteem, your lack of kavod habriyos, your holier than thou attitude is more of a cause of tragedies than my shaitel. Yes, the bais hamikdash was NOT destroyed due to gilui arayos (which even according to your warped logic, you can agree is worse than my shaitel length) yet it WAS destroyed due to sinas chinam, which the meforshim say was jews like YOU who put down and belittled other Jews who were less frum than then in their eyes. Leave the judging to Hashem and go fix your own self and your own home before mouthing off publicly against others in klal Yisroel and before pontificting as to why things happen. You know nothing. W have no neviim today and YOU are definitely not worthy of passing judgment on all of Klal Yisroel. YOU are the problem, not my shaitel. And yes, I showed this comment to my rav before posting it, and he agreed with me 10000000% Enough is enough with these comments every time there is a tragedy. YOU are the tragedy.

      • change says says:

        If you read exactly what i wrote I dont recall writing the reason for the tragedy.i dont recall spreading hate. i dont recall belittleting and judging people.i dont recall hating or spreading sinas chinum. i apologize if you took it that way.good luck

        • salomonF says:

          Maybe tell us what you are planning to do, perhaps some will follow, and eve if they don’t, you achieved something, no?

    • Tgishabbos says:

      change, because of you the sheitels just got longer, and the wall at our southern border just got taller.

  • Rivka says:

    someone posted elsewhere that Rabbi Reuven Bauman A”H, wrote a book not long ago called Yanky’s Amazing Discovery by Menucha publishers, abt Rabbi Yaakov Kamenetzky. It is meant to teach Middos in a practical way, on a children’s level. Can anyone confirm that this is his book?

  • Tgishabbos says:

    Change, perhaps to you the length of a sheitel is important, but for others it isn’t the key lesson from this tragedy. Many frum circles and Rabbonim vary on a woman’s hair covering type and/or length. It shouldn’t be an infatuation from you. You could have mentioned watching Loshon Hora, nivel peh, increase tzedaka or learning, keep extra time on shabbos. All are valid and important. I appreciate your understanding to stay away from controversial suggestions.

    • change says says:

      sorry if i was misunderstood. Understood. thank you for pointing it out to me in a respectful manner.

  • politely asking says:

    If i may kindly,respectfully and politely point out- Please don’t post pics/videos with women in them in respect to the many orthodox jewish men who come here.Thank you for your understanding.

    • me says:

      get off internet and then you wouldn’t have a problem with seeing pics/videos of ladies.

    • ruth siegel says:

      what does that have to do with the terrible terrible tragedy the bauman family is going thru? get a life and be caring of others

    • Tgishabbos says:

      politely asking, you really must be in the shmutz on the computer. I’m not finding any pictures of women for this article, and I’m not finding any inappropriate pictures of women (or men) on this website. I’d suggest you 1. Be honest and transparent with your wife regarding your hardships. 2. Speak with a Rav. 3. With your Rav’s guidance, find a personal or marriage therapist. There is no negative judgement towards you.

  • A concerned parent says:

    How many people know to float, swim parallel to the shore, than diagonal to the shore for rip tide. I’m not a life guard, etc but as trips etc get more exciting and dangerous camps, schools, etc must train staff and the children accordingly. This is a tragedy but we should prepare ourselves to prevent future tragedies of all kinds.

  • Esther says:

    Yes it is his book

  • ike says:

    Yes confirmed it is written by him.

  • Yes says:


  • BDE says:

    So sad. Nebech.
    @change – this is not the time and place. Wait a few days, then send in a letter to TLS as an opinion piece.

  • anonomys says:

    there is no reason to publish this story how many of us still remember and talk about the chabad of poway shooting or the stabbing in har nof or the attack of Bombay when we here a tragic story we just receive it as a piece of hock and by next week we will all forget about this story.
    succh a sad world we live in.

  • Wondering says:

    @change what did you “do” in light of this horrific tragedy? Maybe you can be the “Nachshon” we so desperately need.

  • Leah cohen says:

    I doubt Rabbi Bauman would want us fighting.
    Especially on a public forum.
    Let’s honor his death with an ounce of tolerance & shalom.

  • rivka says:

    Thank you for confirming.
    I will BeH buy it and hopefully my kids will learn some great lessons from it in his zechus!
    Let’s change ourselves, and be examples, before we preach to others about what they should do. Let’s teach our children Middos Tovos and Derech Eretz and stop pointing fingers at others!
    As one of my greatest teachers taught us:
    “Change yourself and you have changed the world” TC

  • Rhonda Goldstein says:

    R people going from Baltimore to lavaya is there a way to listen

  • Hunch says:

    Will there be a live video or phone hookup?

  • lkwd mom says:

    Seriously “politely asking” – a Tznius dressed woman in background of one pic?? Honestly, that’s what there is to comment on here????

  • eli says:

    To help the five yesomim, please use the following link:

    Please forward.
    If The Lakewood Scoop can please post the link on the article so that everyone can see it.

    Tizku L’mitzvos!

  • change says says:

    Sorry for my earlier comment.Its seemingly was totally misunderstood. I learnt my lesson with comments.I was wrong. Im sorry.
    Besros toves.

  • Yechiel Goldstein says:

    @ Shifts

    It’s G-ds job to judge, we just do it as a hobby.

  • Chaim says:

    Who needs enemies, when at the height of horrific tragedy – there are comments that do not address the anguish but rather peoples persona agendas.

    My thought, prayers and hugs are with the Baumans and Norfolk community.

  • kevua says:

    anyone have updated info on the kevura?
