Unfortunately, many people are now going under financially because they borrowed too much.
Also, the shift in the chassidic world has changed recently regarding taxes. The affair with the Spinka Rebbe contributed to that. The Rebbe himself said he made a mistake and so do many others, thinking that it was the only choice. He said that he now knows that is not the case.
It’s sad that many people have that mentality, that they think it’s ok to cheat on their taxes. I was in a store in Boro Park where the owner told me if I paid cash he doesn’t have to charge me tax.
