> So finally what are the downsides of living OOT?
A need to read YWM to find out what is happening “in town”. Frankly, finding this OOT references a little snobby form people who strictly speaking live on islands off the American continent. Well before Lakewood, Torah often lived “OOT”, far away from Berlin, Paris, Mehoza, Alexandria, Rome, Bavel …October 7, 2021 12:06 am at 12:06 am #2013100ujmParticipant
In frum lingo, the “town” is New York City, Greater Lakewood and Greater Monsey.October 7, 2021 12:52 am at 12:52 am #2013105Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant

Is this the latest trend by chassidim to go to OOT Kollelim?
(Chicago ×2!! Baltimore LA Toronto Detroit Arizona.)
What the incentive?October 7, 2021 5:22 pm at 5:22 pm #2013393benignumanParticipant
Montreal has a large Chasidish community. Almost every chasidus has a shul in Montreal.October 7, 2021 9:33 pm at 9:33 pm #2013462
Obviously these kollelim are paying very well that someone looking to continue learning can do so comfortably.
(I heard that the closer ones/ e.g. Baltimore pays in the 1500 range plus covered rent, and the farther ones/chicago in the 2000 range plus rent.
Also from what I heard, in Chicago they help significantly those who choose to buy a house.)
The question is that is this really their only option to stay in learning (without their wives working like a chicken without a head.) , or is there some other reason so many chassidishe yungerleit are doing this?October 7, 2021 10:00 pm at 10:00 pm #2013473ujmParticipant
benignuman: How do you like Montreal?October 7, 2021 10:45 pm at 10:45 pm #2013481
Between all these kollelim there must be around 100+ chassidishe yungerleit doing this.
Sounds a little crazy!
Is in town so broke in providing for chassidishe bnei Torah that so many people are doing this?
