How to Stay Safe in the World Today
1. Avoid riding in automobiles because they are responsible for 20% of all fatal accidents.
2. Do not stay at home because 17% of all accidents occur in the home. (that 37%).
3. Avoid walking on streets or sidewalks because 14% of all accidents occur to pedestrians. (now that's 51%).
4. Avoid traveling by air, trains or buses, as 16% of accidents involve these forms of
transportation. (that's 67%)
5. Of the remaining 33%, 32percent of all deaths occur in hospitals. Above all else avoid
hospitals.
6. You will be pleased to learn that only 0.01% of all deaths occur in a synagogue, and
these are usually related to previous physical disorders.
Therefore, logic tells us that the safest place for you to be at any given point in time is in
your Synagogue..........Torah Study is even safer. The
number of deaths during Torah Study is too small to register.........For safety's sake, go to
Shul as often as possible, and attend Torah Study.
It could save your life. ................"
