Just Trust The Experts

The Rabbonim of Monsey, in consultation with many Gedolim, have suggested that the people of Monsey observe a Yom Ta'anis this Sunday. The usual suspects are bashing these Rabbonim and declaring it "absurd" to fast in such a situation. I will admit that I don't really understand the reason for fasting but I will also admit that I am nowhere near as knowledgeable in these matters as the Rabbonim are.

I find it ironic that the same bloggers that tell us to trust the experts (doctors) when it comes to mitzitzah b'peh and other issues, always know better than the experts when it comes to Jewish law.
