IMHO, I think BP sorely needs a Shul that excites young and old with its geshmak davening, along the lines of a good Chazzan or Carlebach davening, with a Rabbi with loads of personality who would inspire, offering ongoing Shiurim for men and women in English, with right wing YU type leanings with old-time values and upholding Tznius, that attracts BT’s, singles and young families, striking at the heartstrings of potential OTD’s, and isnt old-time Chassidish/Rebbe style but with a varemkeit, but respects them nonetheless, that would be located in BP and attract those from inside BP looking for something different, and also those from outside BP for its warmth and hislahavus, that would almost unite all like family (there are Shuls like that), (a combination of Aish Kodesh, Hineni, Rabbi Fund’s minyan and many others known to have some of the qualities mentioned above), I wish we could all get together. Why give up on centrally located BP, loaded with apartment houses with relatively reasonable rents, kosher establishments, and millions of other advantages, for those who cant or wont go OOT? Does this speak to anyone?October 24, 2011 5:29 pm at 5:29 pm #823083Dr. SeussMember

Boro Park has become far too Chassidish for something like this to succeed there. I was away from the US for 13 years and when I came back 5 years ago I found that the old BP I remembered had become more and more like Williamsburgh. I heard far more Yiddish, especially in the stores, and saw far more Yiddish ads of the type I associated with Willy.
Maybe Kensington is more of a place for this – close enough to both BP and Flatbush for some people to walk over but with more of a mixture of residents.
BP needs an Airmont shul – culturally Ingarisch-Chassidish but open and not tied to a particular Rebbe or chassidus.October 25, 2011 1:24 pm at 1:24 pm #823089

Do you really think that all of these “Williamsburgh” types belong in and feel comfortable in the real Chassidishe minyamin? I think they’d relish a leibedik minyan with old world varemkeit and ehrlichkeit but not as 100% homogenous and stringent.October 25, 2011 1:45 pm at 1:45 pm #823090LSHMember
I’m moving to Connecticut. They’re really nice there.October 25, 2011 2:23 pm at 2:23 pm #823091tzvideerMember
somehow i think you will have to wait till 120 and then when you get to Gan Eden you will finally find that ‘perfect’ Shul,
till then….October 25, 2011 2:24 pm at 2:24 pm #823092oot for lifeParticipant
