I dont think you can live there unless you are part of the Skvar communityJuly 30, 2017 11:15 am at 11:15 am #1328943
You mean New Square, otherwise known to chasidim as Skver. It’s a town near Monsey founded and built by Skvere Chasidim, headed by the previous Skevere Rebbe o’bm.
Its like a shtetl in America, and I heard their hachnosas orchim is something special.
Its obviously a very sheltered environment, that being the point of the whole thing.July 30, 2017 11:51 am at 11:51 am #1329026ilovetohockParticipant

I am looking into a shidduch for a boy from here. So I would like to know do they have internet? Do they watch movies or TV? What type is this? Would you recomend me to a boy this type?July 30, 2017 6:28 pm at 6:28 pm #1329382MenoParticipant
To answer your questions: no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Did I get all of them?July 30, 2017 8:11 pm at 8:11 pm #1329407spiralParticipant
Meno, you answered no to all the questions. That applies to most people in N. S. If someone is considering a shidduch from here it’s possible that thier son/daughter is not typical Skver.July 30, 2017 10:04 pm at 10:04 pm #1329427
The guy use to be skver chasidish and now he is litvish. He is suppose to be a very good boy. Any idea why someone would go from being skver to being litvish? Should I give it a yes?July 30, 2017 10:13 pm at 10:13 pm #1329429MenoParticipant
Is this the guy with the tattoo?July 30, 2017 10:38 pm at 10:38 pm #1329431
Meno, how do you remember? No, not even close. The guy with a tatoo I stopped talking to LONG ago.July 30, 2017 10:38 pm at 10:38 pm #1329432
The guy I am looking into is a drop out chasid who became litvish. He is very religious and he does not want a tatoo and he wants a wive who will cover her hair and only wear skirts.July 30, 2017 11:04 pm at 11:04 pm #1329435Moshe1994Participant
So whats the problem?July 31, 2017 12:10 am at 12:10 am #1329437
moshe, is it okay for a litvish girl to date a skver chasid drop out?July 31, 2017 1:11 am at 1:11 am #1329441Moshe1994Participant
You said he is very religious, who cares if he is Litvish or Chassidish.July 31, 2017 6:29 am at 6:29 am #1329447
If he’s a good boy, with good middos and yiras shomayim, and he wants a similar life to the one you want, go for it. He isn’t New Square type anymore, so why is it relevant what they are like?
It would make sense to find out why and how he left, just to make sure it isn’t something that would have a negative effect on your life. In other words make sure he isn’t a anti-establishment, bitter angry guy.
Probably he’s not.July 31, 2017 6:31 am at 6:31 am #1329449NechomahParticipant
Very important question to ask is why he did drop out from being a Skverer chassid.
Wanting a wife who will cover her hair and wear only skirts makes it sound like he’s a baal teshuva. This is not usually even discussed amongst frum people as it is a given.July 31, 2017 6:31 am at 6:31 am #1329450YanklParticipant
He became Litvish, but very religious, & a very good boy overall,,,,,
So what’s the difference as to whether he’s from Skver or not? he’s a good boy? serious? all info. provided positive? go for it, coming from skver is only a bonus, he just couldn’t keep up to their demands, as long as he’s not rebellious shows that he’s a serious boy,,,,July 31, 2017 4:08 pm at 4:08 pm #1329927
Nechomah, on saw you at sinai they ask everyone if they want someone who wears a sheitel and skirt so that is not 100% accurate.August 1, 2017 3:12 pm at 3:12 pm #1330325hujuParticipant
They used to commercially package and distribute orange juice, but I do not see it in the supermarkets any more. The juice was good.August 4, 2017 3:45 am at 3:45 am #1332564SadigurarebbeParticipant
huju: it still exists under a new name, Fresh and TastyAugust 4, 2017 6:37 am at 6:37 am #1332583JosephParticipant
But the New Square milk brand was a much better and well known brand. It made no sense to have retired that brand.August 4, 2017 6:37 am at 6:37 am #1332599
Yep, orange juice is a reason to marry the guy! 😉August 4, 2017 6:38 am at 6:38 am #1332600etzharParticipant
Why do I feel Purimdik?August 12, 2017 11:40 pm at 11:40 pm #1337764
Is it okay to not want to become chasidish if your marrying a chasid but dont mind to be yeshivish?August 13, 2017 12:06 am at 12:06 am #1337781JosephParticipant
You must do what your husband tells you to.August 13, 2017 4:57 pm at 4:57 pm #1338029motchah11Participant
Rebshidduch: Skver is a very closed town and chassidus. They jave vaadim for all sorts of things. They have a vaad for tznius, they have avaad that looks for anyone deviating even slightly from their way of life. Some people flourish in that sort of environmemt, and some people find it oppressive.
So it is perfectly understandable why someone would opt to leave that society. I don’t think it should be held against him.August 13, 2017 9:13 pm at 9:13 pm #1338090WolfishMusingsParticipant
It’s the type of community where, if you commit the grave sin of davening in a nearby nursing home so that elderly Jews can have a minyan, you will be subjected to intense harassment until they get rid of you, but if you attempt to burn down a home with a family sleeping in it, you will be welcomed back with open arms and celebrated when you are released from prison.

Once someone sees the beauty of chassidis why would they wanna be litvish !!!!????!!????August 14, 2017 11:22 pm at 11:22 pm #1339159👑RebYidd23Participant
