    Of course, the logical continuation of the data presented should be that one should REMAIN in shul learning 24/7 (as it’s too dangerous to walk to/from shul).

    This vaguely reminds me about a radio ad for a home security company that warned the listeners that “summer is coming – did you know that over 25% of all home burglaries occur between Memorial Day and Labor Day?”

    I bet more people die in the US in synagogue than while sacrificing to the Ba’al, Ashera, Zeus and Thor put together. Let’s not go there ;-).

  3. Jewish Observer says:

    “For safety’s sake, go to Shabbat services, and attend Torah Study. It could save your life”

    I bet you never saw people killing each other for the last piece of kishke

    Ssometimes listening to someone give a long and boring speech in Schul can leave one wishing for death, like in ” kill me now!”

  5. mycroft says:

    “You will be pleased to learn that only 0.001 percent of all deaths occur in worship services in a synagogue”

    Sadly-a person died suddenly in my schul.

  6. Jewish Observer says:

    wht’s with the schul spelling of shul?

  7. Yehoshua Friedman says:

    Consider the zchus of dying while you are davening or learning Torah. Even if you are the statistic, it’s still the thing to do. Learning Torah doesn’t appear on the statistics because not enough people are doing it, not because of lack of danger. Ask Rabbi Akiva.

    Schul is the proper spelling for the word as it is originally a German word and originated in Germany, thank you very much.
