Dear Kehilla Kedosha,

I think it's time to bring this topic up.

The terrible question is, how will they know on GYE if someone has died after 120?

What are we gonna do when someone really popular suddenly disappears and stops posting (Lo Aleinu)? How will we know what actually happened?

I for one, wouldn't be able to stand the suspense...

There's got to be a way to solve such a problem.

Anyone have any ideas?

in Slonim there is a story about a chossid who died relatively young. for whatever reason he ended up in gehinnom. the first Friday night he went to the authorities there and requested that he be allowed to go to the weekly 'zitz' (tish/buttah/chassidic gathering). they refused to allow it but he would not take no for an answer and the case was brought before the Heavenly Court.

they asked whether he went every week. he affirmed his weekly attendance and the records confirmed it as well. so he went.....

and the rebbe finished off by saying "woe to friends who would let him return to his spot in gehinnom...."

ad kan hamaiseh

we can extend this and say that if someone is part of the GYE forum, he should be allowed to post after 120, so the whole question is moot

And we will do our best to make sure our friends don't go to Gehinnom in the first place!

This is a very serious question. It should not be in Just Having Fun. If we all go to SA or at least to GYE get-togethers, then we will all have people who know who we are, not the whole Internet population just a few fellow Yidden. Then after 120 years the survivors can learn mishnayos for the deceased.


Who wants a GYE BYOB BBQ with BB in Meron this Thursday night? Bring last year's lulav and esrog, a shofar and plenty of meat and alcohol.
The Blind Beggar is a character in Rebbe Nachman's story of the Seven Beggars.

Lulav and Esrog are already history, but I've been thinking that it's time for a GYE EY convention...

I completely agree. Who should be learning Mishnayos for me and be melamed zechus for me if not my holy brothers on GYE?

how 'bout a kumzitz in tzfas first?
cuz i'm totally in.


agav. the satmar rebbe in vayoel moshe brings that in the 19th century the rabbis of the yishuv instated a takannah prohibiting any unmarried man between the ages of 20 and 60 from living in yerushalayim, afraid that since the gemara says ben esrim veloh nasa isha kol yamav ba'aveira, anyone over twenty will be metamei the holy land. the text of this takanah continues that neither should any bachur over twenty be allowed to divert from his regular bedtimes, even to learn a mishmar night.
but i believe that such an evening of gye chizuk, would be letoeles gadol, and even they would be matir.

I think someone said it already.  You need to know (in real life) someone else on the forum.  If you are completely virtual,  you will die without anyone on the forum knowing about it.  Sorry for the bluntness.  Usually bluntness is a sign of truth.

I find by me- if I try to keep it totally virtual then my recovery just stays virtual and I do not find it to be REAL. I need to have at least one person that when I think about the idea of telling them I fell is more then just a screen name, then it helps me rethink my action that I am about to take.

But If i kick will he know that? he might think I am not answering he's calls?

Should we invent a GYE life support button.. Like hey I am about to kick the bucket lets let the boys at GYE know.. Or maybe thats not bad to have on us in case we are about to fall...

Ok guys who wants a (GYE) life support button.. ?

That's why I said REAL life, not phone call life.  You could also leave it in your will to announce on GYE that screenname is deceased.  Or you could have your wife go on and announce it, if she knows your on here and your screen name.
